WOODS CROSS GROUP
I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. Every day that goes by I am with more and more gratitude Father has given me the gift of you, my friends, students and coworkers. I am always amazed at how mortal concepts grow beyond the individual self to embracing a larger picture. In this time of correction, and the receiving of morontial lessons as a whole, we are finding a beautiful mindal connection. As we are finding healing we are receiving benefits that we should have had before the planetary isolation.
As you grow in spirit you will find this mindal connection miraculous, yet citizens on enlightened worlds find this an average occurrence. They could not imagine life without it. As we move in toward Light and Life our connection improves and with that comes genuine compassion, real understanding, deepening of love for our fellows and a clearer view of the will of God. This expansion of mind is dependent upon the willingness to let go of the self.
As we draw closer to understanding the true nature of God we find ourselves reborn and with the sense that we are at the beginning of all eternity. We relax in the knowing that there is time; there is freedom to learn, grow, love and serve. We can be released from the anxiety of feeling rushed, pressured or behind. We can rebuild that confidence that only an aware child of God knows. We are not lost. We are not unknown.
Up until this point in this worlds evolution you could only receive the gift of this mind connection on the mansion worlds. However, we are striving to move towards Light and Life status, and personal and planetary healing is being received now, and with that comes certain benefits, certain gifts and a great deal of responsibility. In this mind connection with your brothers and sisters you can feel what they feel. You can have a deeper understanding of why they are the way they are. You can have Michael's understanding.
Do you think that with such compassionate understanding you could ever really be judgmental, indifferent or uninvolved? With Michael's understanding of one another are we ever really separate? What is our common ground? Where do we meet? Yes, as cherished children of our First Source and Center. Does this not put the stages of Light and Life into new perspective, new possibilities? Yes.
Our last assignment was to study the life of the Master. Personally I was greatly impressed by His ability to remain calm in most situations. What was that foundation He possessed, built upon, to remain unshaken in any situation? Yes, trust, trust in His connection with Father, trust in Father's ability, trust in Himself to receive from God. In a state of anxiety how could the Master have remained within the Father's will? Mortal anxiety had its way with the Master at times, but always was it overpowered with faith and trust in God, in God's presence, in God's promise, in God's ever unfolding potentials and possibilities. The Master knew His fellows very well. Through His state of trusting in Father, ability to remain calm and open He had an excellent mindal connection with His brethren. He certainly understood stress. He has as much anxiety as any of us deal with on a daily bases.
Michael and Mother ask that we let them parent us, in that we can trust them, can trust in their abilities, can trust in ourselves to receive what we need from them. In a state of anxiety we will not receive this gift of mind connection with one another or our divine Caretakers. With a fast paced life there is not the freedom to receive many spiritual benefits. It all is dependent upon your will. Realize these benefits, children. They are here. They really are yours.
This week I give no other assignment than to think about what you really want. Look deep within and think about what you really want--not what you think God wants, not what you think you need, but what you really desire from the core of your soul. We will further discuss this mindal connection and how it moves the masses. For now a few questions.
CALVIN: Abraham, we welcome Diane for the record.
ABRAHAM: Greetings. (Thank you. Greetings back to you.) You are certainly welcome here and we look forward to knowing you better. (Thank you.) You're welcome.
DIANNA: Abraham, we recently study about faith and trust in the book meeting. We found out from Bob that faith is a gift. (Inaudible.) The interaction between faith and trust was always very cloudy to me when you are in a situation of anxiety and pain. I read recently in a Welmek transmission that you ask for trust and it activates faith. So the more you go down your life path and asked for trust the more and more are you able to access that faith. Is there any clarification on that? I always thought it was the opposite way.
ABRAHAM: To me the gift of faith is practically like a sword given to a child. Without life's experience and lessons it can be dangerous. Faith is exercised through trust, to go hand in hand when experiencing life in the flesh. Your experience here is to learn to believe without seeing and there are many roads you can take to come to a true understanding of the faith/trust system. You can have trust in only what your eyes see and your faith will be solely in yourself, your abilities, your level of control. You can have trust in spiritual leaders and your faith will be their faith, it will be their blueprint of faith, so to speak. Real faith comes from the experience to dare to step away from the self towards something greater. Real faith is like a growing energy that is produced by having trust in something beyond ourselves. Real faith comes from daring to be willing to not care about your personal image, what you may look like to others and even appearing foolish from time to time. The gift of faith is that sword from Father, in whom we must trust to teach us how to use it. Is this helping? (It is beautiful. Yes. Thank you.)
MIRIAM: Abraham, a word and a concept you used in your lesson has just been resonating with me--a Promise of Father. I was thinking a promise from Father pouring down on us and us reaching up with our faith is quite the contract. You are saying stepping away from the self--even when you don't know that is what you are stepping away from, and starting to grow toward that loving entity even before you know it is Father--I don't know--like when you all talk about co-creation, partnering and that the Father is in us and we are part of the Father. That promise is just a powerful concept. I was thinking that the promise can't exist for us unless we choose to receive it. Just a beautiful lesson. Thank you.
ABRAHAM: Well said Miriam, my daughter. You are correct in that the promise is there. We have only to receive it. Therein lies our freedom, our empowerment, our ability to co-create our eternal destiny. Yes, well said. One more question?
HARRISON: Abraham, this past week or two I have been experiencing a tremendous amount of peace. I am very grateful for that. I would like you address the men in the group, the brothers of the group. I think we all have unique challenges, situations. I think I am just asking you to speak to all the men and helping perhaps each one of us some way to take another step forward and grow a little more this next week.
ABRAHAM: That is truly courageous on your part to ask on behalf of yourself and your brethren, yes. I really have no words of correction. I have no advice concerning each one's direction. I have only the swelling of my heart overflowing with love and respect for each one of you, for I view you in your daily struggles and you do not quit, you do not give up. You each for the most part are willing to eventually embrace life's humility and be taught from it. I understand your position and regard each one of you with great affection. My words for you are simple. My love is with you.
Go in peace, all of you, with excitement knowing that God is our gift and ever upholds us in all things. Until next week, shalom.
