Prayer: How magnificent it is that Michael is always there when we call. There is no time we can witness where we feel abandoned, left alone unto ourselves in the universe. What a magnificent gift that is He gives us all. I'm sure we all share eternal gratitude for this gift.
Michael: [Mark] Good morning my dear ones, you know who I am. It is my distinct pleasure, and I do emphasize the word pleasure, to join you and so many others this morning on this day where there is cause to pause and reflect over my time of service on our world so many years ago. I would draw your attention to this idea of the pleasure that I get at this point in joining you in this fashion because so much of what is remembered about my experience on this world at this time has to do with my suffering and my sorrow; but I tell you plainly, these were but as small pieces to the larger puzzle. They represent the black dots on the white background and not the overriding hews which I use to remember my experience or to color that experience for others.
Rather what I remember about this anniversary of my time spent in the mortal condition was the great opportunities, the great chances for expressing love, for choosing service, for deciding to represent the will of our Father to our brothers and sisters. This was a time of great expectations, of great choices that I was graced with in my experience and while I understand that as a result of the way things turned out, so far as mortals were able to see, it appeared as though all this greatness, these great plans and dreams and opportunities perished with me, with one man. But I assure you, they did not perish, they live on, they live on in you. I observe some of these very same opportunities and choices that are present in your experiences that rise up before you to be chosen, selected, endorsed or rejected and this pattern, this plan that's in place that was there for me in my time and now is here for you in yours, is a gift of grace for which I am eternally grateful.
You see, while there are difficult steps to be taken, hard roads to be traveled, unpleasant times to be endured as a simple matter of course throughout human life and existence, there also, side by side with all these is the chance of eternal salvation, of a spiritual career spanning eternity. When seen in this context, seen in this truth, such small episodes of discomfort, disharmony, unpleasantness or sadness soon become eclipsed in the grandeur of the greater experience of the spiritual eternal career.
As was mentioned earlier in the discussion about my experience, it was required of me that I experience all aspects of mortal life from the jubilation of believers who have been inspired by my teachings, to the rejection and unjust treatment by those who did not. It was only in this way that I could gain the complete and vast depth of experience in one short mortal encounter. And so it can be said that I have seen the best and I have seen the worst and that most of my experience while on earth was somewhere in between.
Likewise, your journey here on this planet takes you down many roads, some of which you will count as among your worst and most trying difficult experiences and some will lead you in the direction of joy and peace and happiness. It is through drawing the distinction, through making the contrast evident, that you are able to appreciate the diversity of the experience provided you, of the grace bestowed upon you. Without this diversity, one might think all things were so orchestrated for you as to deprive you of the gamut of experience available.
Those who are born into other orders of beings such as your guardian angels, do not have an opportunity to understand the magnitude of experience that you have had the chance to experience. Their order of beings is not challenged with darkness, doubt, uncertainty and fear as you encounter in your lives. And even so, having encountered these things, you still would choose to move in the direction of divinity, in the direction of your divine Inner Guide, in the direction of your Divine Parents.
This represents a supreme choice, and one that it could be said you could not have made accurately and fairly without some contrast, some difference of choice before you, some options to choose from which include those which direct you away from divinity and take you further and further away from truth, beauty and goodness. In order for you to choose otherwise and forsake those options, they must all be present. So while it appears as though at times you may be in a maze of uncertainty, still, to those who are believers and have their faith with them, there is a certainty of outcome, there is a certainty of finding your way through these obstacles and making it past these challenges that rise up before you because you believe, because you are willing to act on that belief, because this faith is so strong within you that you trust and believe in the greater good, even though the smaller doubts and fears may rise up and be in your face.
And so my service to your world has succeeded. And so, my exercise which was so very difficult at the time, has been turned to good just as all of your exercises which may appear fruitless or without tangible results. I assure you likewise, they are all turned to the good as well. Any genuine effort is sacred and will be used for the benefit of all. This is why I come to you this morning with joyous appreciation and gratitude. You all represent the fruits of what I began. You all demonstrate to universes upon universes that the plan of divinity will rule out in the end, the pattern of divinity will be so deeply entrenched that all choices will work towards the good. Even when they may appear to be at their darkest, there is an element in there which may be brought forward and utilized for the best possible outcome.
You who have heard my call to follow me grace me with this gift on this day and I am grateful to the Father above for the circumstance that brings me your gifts, for the opportunity we both have shared to be a mortal on this world and the splendor of the plan which I see unfolding of which I am a part and you are as well. On this day and on all days, I praise the Father for the glory of His plan and my opportunity to participate with Him in it and I suspect you share my prayer. Let us go out together and write into our program, the best, highest, most noble that we can consider of what we have been informed of and let us represent this to the best of our capacity and seek always for greater understanding of even higher and better ways and ideas and purposes. If this is our groove that we wear, then let us wear it together.
I pray you feel my embrace, this day and always. As you recall me, so I am there, as you call to me, so I will respond. Father I am so grateful for these who would follow me and through me, follow You. Let us do this in your name and in your honor and let all that we do be pleasing in your sight. That is all we ask, thank You.
Michael: [Cathy] I am most gratified by your perception about the end of my time as a mortal. I am with you in "real time" as it is known. I attempted to portray the love of the Father to the people of that time. Many were able to accept the new idea that I brought but many others rejected my offering of a new way to approach our Creator. I brought the vision of God to man, a loving Father. In my life as a man I hoped to serve the Father to be the best of man. In my constant connection with my Adjuster and the spirit circuit provided by our Father, I sought always to show the way for you my children. It is a connection that remains vibrantly available for your use. My Spirit of Truth bestowed to be a guide also to this connection, that you were able to see the error of the doctrine of atonement and discard a notion that no longer fits my portrayal of a loving Father shows your growth into a new way of being in perception. I am always available to aid you in your daily challenges of building a new basis for your thinking and a new way of being in your world. Together we will move into this new stage of my Correcting Time, a stage of love, compassion and forgiveness. This is the true message I bring you from the time on the cross. This is just the beginning of compassion and brotherhood for this world. Thank you all for remembering my mission.
Light: [Mark] Good morning friends, Light here. I would step into this sacred sphere you've created this morning to pick up on a theme so prevalent this morning and add my contribution to it and that being one of gratitude. All over today, people will gather in gratitude for the service of our Creator Son. And while we join them in this gratitude, we who are spirit led, know that there is so much more to be grateful for that the manifestation of Michael as Jesus was simply one in a long series of chapters of grace that have been bestowed upon this world. And while we are focused on that chapter today, those who are spirit led see the pattern behind that chapter, see the truth and reality that goes well beyond one simple time and one grand act.
So while we are indeed grateful for this gesture made for this heroic act of kindness, we are as well deeply grateful for the many heroic acts of kindness and of love and of truth and of beauty that have been shown to us throughout that we feel in our own experiences that cause us to embrace spirit with complete certainty. These are all gifts of grace and all emanate from the same source and it is that source which we feel such deep gratitude for. So I join you all this morning in your appreciation for the grace which pervades our experiences on so many levels. It is a joy to be with you to celebrate these graces and to experience the joy together. This is fellowship, this is the reward for being brothers and sisters, sojourners on this spiritual path and it is my pleasure to be among you on this journey.
So let us celebrate this day, not only the accomplishments of the Master, but the laying down of the groundwork wherein the Master could offer this gift of grace, this same plan which supports you and I throughout our journey. We are all grateful to be a part of this same plan, to be together while this plan unfolds, to enjoy each others fellowship and company throughout the journey. Indeed, gratitude is the underlying foundation and I join you all today in expressing this from our deepest center. Let this gratitude shape our experience, our opportunities at service, our perspective on the journey itself. It is likewise a joy to be with you this morning. Thank you for this opportunity. I bid you all have a great week.
Light: [Cathy] This is Light, together we can send light to the darkness that remains on this world. Continue to bring the light into yourselves and experiment with this tool we have created. I will be with you in all your attempts. I will intensify the light with you.
Jonathan: [Cathy] I am joining you in sending healing energy to Charley. From my view it appears as a river of light flooding his body and space. Together we are adding an element to the scenario. Together we are sending a gift of love.
