* Elyon (Jonathan TR):  I greet you, this is your friend.

Elyon.  I open my contact by reminding you that you are primarily local universe citizens.  You are currently residents of Urantia, and, as you are concerned for developments on our world which aid or hinder planetary progress, you are also developing an awareness of your ability to contribute toward and impact the developmental swing of Nebadon as it in aggregate also progresses towards the Supremacy attainment of Light and Life.

Energy remains static until polarity is established and through differential there come into being force and power, movement and transference of energy, and the result is work, action, effect.  Love is thus like energy; it is everywhere present.  It requires differential for there to be application.

Each of you is developing the ability to receive love and to give love by transforming it from a general, static, state of reality into a point of application.  This mechanism whereby love becomes manifest is contained in your word "compassion".  When the human will chooses an individual to express toward, love transforms itself into compassion.  I may describe love as a body of water.  When you choose to give love you dip your bucket into the body of water and pour that love.  The pouring is compassion; it is applying direction and motion to love.

You are aware of the electrical charges of your atmosphere in times of storm. When an energy line is established you witness lightning.  The love of God is revealed through each of you, for in your effort to connect with God you become an energy
line just like lightning, bringing love into manifestation, witness-able as life, just as lightning is a manifestation of the energy in the atmosphere.

In order to promulgate love there must be differential. 

Herein enters the value of stillness, for you create the condition of the worshipper and the worshipped and thereby the energy of love influxes.  Subsequent to this filling of divine force you are charged; you are ready to discharge into the mind and heart of one of greater depletion, of stronger need.  This dynamic is compassion; it is kindness; it is mercy; it is your  fingerprint upon the love of God, and it is the will of the Father that you so imprint His omnipresent love, so define it as to make it applicable to your fellows, to make it witness-able, to make it contactable to the doubting heart and mind.

I opened by reminding you of your universe citizenship. 

While you are resident on this world and conscious of your citizenship in Nebadon, you likewise establish the same differential that allows for the purpose of Michael to become manifest on Urantia.  You are contact points, the electrode where the mission of Michael may impact and charge this planet. While the creator is all powerful, it is not the purpose of divine will to impose upon any creature the way of Paradise, the ideal life.  The emergence of such attainments is out of and distributed from each human being, angel, ministering spirit. 

While it is a wish that the hand of God would simply correct all that is of error for us, the means whereby God will infuse goodness is done through its rising within you and your expression. As you are growing in your sensitivity to your true universe placement there naturally is developing a reaction-ability to your life episodes which allows for divine goodness to manifest, not upon you and your life events, but through you and into your life events.

Much has been made in the religions of your world of your position as a lowly creature for an almighty God.  It is valuable for the ascending child to understand the magnificence of the Creator and the beneficence that is for you in your upliftment and growth.  But never let that displace the even greater relationship that you are an extension of the Father throughout the universe, that your life purpose is twofold:  the drawing ever closer to God in relationship and the ever clearer manifestation of God.  The closer you draw, the greater your relation-ability.

Let yourself not be stifled with the concern that your relationship needs better development or more refinement, greater intensity or deeper contact, for the degree to which you connect gives you a portion of enlightenment that you may reveal in your actions, and it is in this revealing that you receive external feedback.  This feedback is corrective and adjusting to your current state of awareness.  It is an error to assume that if you spent all your time in divine communion you would perfectly reveal God to your fellows.  The true mechanism for perfection of the revelation of God through you requires that you reveal imperfectly progressively and receive counterbalancing feedback from your environment as well as your divine contact through worship and stillness.  Therefore the time to begin is always now.  Preparation is ongoing, but engagement is simultaneous to preparation.  Love awaits all, but love reaches all through those who are loving, and those who are loving are compassionate and kind, are sensitive and giving, caring and self-forgetting, knowing full well that those to whom you reach out to are the Father's children, your brothers and sisters.  You know the beauty of divine contact, of celestial overcare, and that you want for your brothers and sisters just as does your heavenly Father.

While you humbly approach God in full recognition of all the powers implied, the consciousness, the perfection of personality, in your humbleness couple that with the deep sense of birthright and privilege; for you are infused, fully charged, able to discharge this divine energy to others.  The accomplishment of the manifestation of love is not perfected first and then revealed.  It is revealed and finally perfected.

I acknowledge in you your capability to further develop this relationship.  I also grant you the recognition of your accomplishment to date.  It is my pleasure to open the floor to discussion to entertain your questions at this time.

Kirk:  It's amazing you can see the progress of each individual when sometimes the individual can't see any progress.

* Elyon:  Take note of the concepts of relative motion.  Many of you have been blessed with an accelerated rate of spiritual advancement.  You are able to discern your growth as you observe your environment and perceive the relative growth of others. 

You may feel you are not growing at a given point in time, but I trust you know in faith that your entire world is growing as a whole body.  Therefore you are growing.  You are not discerning the relative motion of self among other selves.  Step back to my perspective and you will witness the relative motion of Urantia's growth compared to other planets.  That is why I can say truly that you are growing.

Kirk:  That's a wonderful insight, Elyon.

Evelyn:  You said that as we reveal God or His power we don't do that perfectly.  We will receive feedback to adjust our techniques.  In our culture it's discouraged to even bring up the topic of religion.  The answer is not to get shot down and never do it again, to watch that you don't bring it up, but rather to refine our techniques and demonstrate that it is a good thing.

* Elyon: Yes.  As we have discussed today compassion has the active element of love.  Every engagement you have with another  human being can contain all the elements that make up religion without ever addressing religion as a topic.  You may apply faith, offer insight, bring the touch of love, advance thought, uplift another soul, and you will have brought religion into the relationship.  It will rise within the other unknowingly, not superimposed but lifted from within. Then will come the time when the question is asked about the topic of religion.  When that door opens you are in a different ball game.

This is the very reason why we do not encourage you to promote our Teaching Mission as much as we encourage you to become what we teach you, for you to reveal that to others.  That is the accomplishment of the purpose of this mission, not
the advertisement of our process and our project.

Thank you, my friends, for hearing my words.  Realize that you change little by simply witnessing our communication, but you change greatly in applying yourselves wholeheartedly to discerning truth and applying truth.  This is the development of a morontia reflex.  This reflex becomes active in every angle of your lives.  As you grow in awareness of your relationship with the higher realms, you increase your skill in using this reflex even in your most insignificant activities.  That is my motivation as your teacher, not that you hear me and follow me, but that you develop a greater skill in truth discernment and apply it.

You are my friends.  I give you my love.  I will be with you again.  Take care.
