Teacher: Sondjah Melchizedek

TR: Daniel Raphael

January 21, 2008

SONDJAH: Good evening, this is Sondjah. (Good evening.) Thank you for your welcome. Though this one was tardy in his arrival, it offers opportunity to the day when others are able to TR for this group. And, we look forward to that happening. We will assist you in whatever way we can, and this one has also volunteered to assist anyone, whenever and wherever that it would be convenient to him or her. In fact, this respite gave you a time to come together and discuss a backlog of issues and questions, which you have had for some time.

Some of you have been ill at ease that we have been on quite a regimen, and so it is good to have a break, a time when you have a free-for-all where you can ask questions and discuss among yourselves, to develop those ideas, which you have had for a long time and wanted to share and express. For many of you, you learn so much more by doing this, and being on task and in a workgroup is not necessary all the time, though it does provide a structure around which your free times can be very productive.

You have been working very hard, very quickly, very much under a demand and we do not wish you to be under a feeling of demand. You have much authority here to structure how your time is used and devised, so that you can be as productive as you would like to be. If you feel you need more time to be in your sub-teams, then you are most welcome to request that. If you object to only 20 minutes, please object. This is a free and open forum, one with somewhat of a structure to assist you in forming work habits to assist us in this project.

You have learned a good deal tonight among the teams. Several of you would like to be in different teams, or to start your own team, and you are most welcome to. We now have a compliment of 10-12 people and more at times, and you are most welcome to sub-divide into smaller groups if you wish, to work on those relationship paradigms that interest you. You will find that your work will be more and more productive as time goes by, as you know what is expected and you know how to produce that in discussions among yourselves.

As this is an open evening, let us provide you with time to ask questions, as you have devised. Some of you have been thinking of questions for weeks, but have not written them down. This may be a time when you would like to ask some questions, and so I and several others are available to answer your questions, if you wish. We will adhere to our time and say goodbye to you at 25 after the hour, which would allow you to say goodbyes and leave, if you wish. We are now open for questions.

Dick: Do you think we should all try to cover each one of the relationship categories you set before us?

SONDJAH: It will be helpful to do so in the next couple of years, yes. In the meantime, you are most welcome to work on that relationship paradigm, which interests you most.

Michael: Sondjah, this is Michael. Tonight, earlier, we talked about the importance of each individual working towards an awareness, an awakeness, a consciousness of their own presence, their own self as love. Following that discussion line, it was suggested that since most of us have not yet achieved enlightenment, that it is perhaps more important that the intention of each individual, and two individuals in a relationship, the intention is the critical "glue" that will help a relationship become sustainable. Are we focusing on this correctly?

SONDJAH: The intention is a declaration that assists the couple, the relationship, to have a focus. It is a means of engaging their commitment, their energies, their passions and their heart energy. The intention is the primary element of a sustainable relationship. You as well must think in terms of the qualifications of an intention. There are elements to it that support it. There are intentions, which become fulfilled and eventually, that intention becomes complete, allowing an opening for a new intention, or for a closure of the relationship.

Student: I really have a very basic question. (Certainly.) I don’t understand what—I guess I don’t understand this focus of sustainability, of couples and singles, and I guess my interest or my knowledge on sustainability goes… I don’t understand where we’re starting and what it has to do with sustainability.

SONDJAH: Sustainability is both material and social. The material sustainability has to do with living in the "house of your world." Earth is your home; earth is your house. You must take care of your house to continue living in it, as a society, as a culture, as a civilization. So too, must you sustain the social institutions of that civilization, to learn how to sustain those social institutions, which mean so much to you. The growth of individuals comes from families, the most elemental social institution of all society and civilization. The sustainability of your families, of communities, of cities and of larger organizations, is elemental to the sustainability of your world as a civilization. Hundreds and hundreds of civilizations have come and gone upon your world, and they are all dead. It is very likely that your own civilization will die as well, unless you take efforts to sustain it, to learn the fundamental elements that sustain civilization, society, families and individuals. We have discussed this previously, and those discussions are available in the transcripts and will be made available to you, if you wish. (Thank you.)

(Long pause.)

Are you so shy in front of me, where you are not shy in front of each other? Have I dropped my clothes or something? (Muffled laughter.)

Ann: This is Ann. We’ve spoken a fair amount about the nurturance of children, but I’m wondering if you have any words of wisdom about the nurturance of our inner family?

SONDJAH: Explain "inner family?"

Ann: All the wounded child parts within us that impede our progress.

SONDJAH: Certainly. In a wounded society as your own, we are making efforts to do that, to help you learn to love yourself as a wounded individual, to love yourself as the wounded daughter, the wounded mother, the wounded wife, the wounded sister. You have work to do—all of you—and that is why you are here. You are here upon this plane to learn how to love yourself, without aggrandizement, without fear, without ego—simply to love yourself, to accept yourself and this is where it begins, is to accept yourself as you are, wounded, imperfect, learning and growing.

Second, it is important that you learn to appreciate yourself, to appreciate yourself to ask that question. That means that you are growing; it means that you are yearning to grow, striving to grow, to become more. Do not worry about striving to become perfect—just try. Have it as your intention to grow, to overcome those faults, and that becomes a daily chore for many of you, to love yourself, rather than belittle yourself, always saying, "Oh, I could have done better," when truly you are doing better. You oftentimes forget how much you have grown in the last 5 years, let alone 10. You have grown so much, even in three months. It may not be appreciable to you, but to those who have not seen you for many months, who come to know you once again, ask them, "Do you see a change in me? Have I grown, do you think?" This is a question that begs for intimacy, it reveals your vulnerability and it too says that you are growing. Yes, you truly must learn to love yourself; this begins by the simple act of accepting yourself, appreciating yourself and taking on those acts of kindness that assist you to grow, rather than berating you and slapping you and hurting yourself this way, as many of you do.

As this gentleman said earlier, "I’m getting better every day." This is a good thing to keep in mind, and to note the ways of doing that. Each of you is so well acquainted with your faults, surely you can write them down and note how to forget them and how to overcome them. It is the faults that you fail to forget that bedevil you so difficultly. Be gentle upon yourself. Doing this, then you look out upon others and you see how they are striving and how hard they are working to become better, to grow, to appreciate themselves, and you will be in a much better position to become a teacher, of the lessons that you have learned. Thank you for your question. (Thank you.)

Student: Sondjah, I have a question that came to me during the discussion tonight with the group. There’s a little bit of confusion of looking forward and how are all these masses of people to go into this hopeful change that we are looking for, and I’m wondering if the concept of how we change, if we change our minds, if we change our thoughts. Is that what is going to manifest in our physical world? Am I far off the mark in thinking that these groups, by changing our thoughts on a cellular level going forward, will that manifest—will we see that manifest—around us in other individuals and in the world, physically?

SONDJAH: Yes. In addition, I point this statistic to you: Many of you are aware that crime in your country has decreased significantly in the last two decades. This is a direct result of individuals joining into a higher vibration of thinking, of thought, of intention, of living. They are truly changing the cellular memory of mankind and the behavior even of those people who totally do not believe in it. There is a slow bending of the will and the mindset of humanity, on your planet. You are truly making a difference.

When the push and shove comes to your world, of course, then it must be demonstrated in your behavior. How will you behave? Will you assist others, or only selfishly take care of yourself? However, for the meantime in these years that have passed already, and the years ahead, there are more and more people who are having a positive influence upon your world. You are truly making a difference. You perhaps do not see this if you are not an actuarial expert, an actuary or a social statistician. You may not see these changes at all, for you continue to hear the news and the news brings you things, which are ghastly, which grab your attention and wrench your innards.

It is a most difficult world to live in with bad news bombarding you all the time, but truly you are seeing good conquer evil; you are seeing good intentions outweigh bad or evil intentions. Darkness is fading, as the light comes in, and this truly is occurring. One of the reasons for us being here—a very small reason—is to report to you the progress that you are making in your world, and how your world is changing because of that. We are able to see your world and measure it, much as an auto mechanic is able to plug a computer to an engine and measure the differences that are occurring within various parameters. You see your society as very complex, and it is complex in many ways, but there are simple measurements, which we take, though not regularly, that indicate how your world is progressing. Does this answer your question, or would you like me to continue on? (No, that’s good, thank you.)

Student: Sondjah, would you expound a bit on the parameters that you check to see how much our world is progressing?

SONDJAH: Certainly. Divorce rates, abandoned children, child abuse, spousal abuse, and general public violence. These are lumped together into a parameter of social violence, to put it in very, very general terms for you. There are decreases of those negative behaviors, which are a positive thing, and there are increases in positive behavior, which is of far better benefit. You are seeing both on your world, if you would note them. Many times you are so in tune with your media that you are out of touch with life. Be cautious about how you live your life and what you attend to, for that will be your focus. You are making a huge difference in the world, by the positive things you bring to it.

Other parameters are the "joy factor." You have a funny comedian who goes by the stage name of "Swami Beyondananda" who speaks of … [See last page.] There are many parameters of joy that we measure. This is the radiance of light from individuals; we see a radiance of light in nations that are more luminous than other nations. Some nations are very dark; there are cultures of people who live in the darkness, though individual lights may be bright. The parameters are many; they are simple, but they would be complex to you. I hope that you will trust that we know what the Creator is about, and that is light. (Thank you.)

Michael: Sondjah, I have a question. Moving off the topic, does the outcome of the upcoming Presidential election have any consequence at all on the level of consciousness and awareness of those of us in the United States and around the world?

SONDJAH: In the main, no. It is a trend-setter type of activity. The President of your nation is very powerful and sets the trend or tone of the nation and its energy. You will see inertia of prior administrations, which carry forward a trend, which works against the great good that this nation is capable of. It takes more than one President in one term, to make a very large difference.

[This is Daniel: He’s chewing on the war issue.]

Dick: I have a question about the war issue.

[Daniel: No, Sondjah is chewing on it; he’s wondering how to present it to you.]

SONDJAH: Let me take this at 90 degrees, please: War does not sustain a world, does not sustain a civilization, neither does it sustain a nation. War is one of those parameters, one of those factors, which is included in the larger parameter of violence. War as opposed to peace, truly is a contest, one that must not be seen in competitive terms, but must be taken out of that context. Peace is not something that comes from a lack of war. Peace comes from an intention of peace, of right and good relationships, of cooperation and coordination, oneness of thought and energy and of values. If this were a measure of success, then your country would be very successful. It is—I would not say "a shame", as that is a pejorative word—but it surely has caused tremendous injury to your nation, let alone the nations that it has been used with.

There is so much potential for good in your nation, which is untapped and unshared. Monjoronson gave you the example many months ago, that if all the arms monies were used in the world for good, there would be no poverty, there would be no lack, and there would be good healthcare for everyone on the planet. There would be wonderful education for everyone, for a lifetime, as you need it. The warring dollars and monies of your world have left you impoverished, morally, ethically, socially, and as a civilization. There has to be an additive to assist the positive side of you—and I mean "you" as a world—to come to right-mindedness of peace and evenhandedness and fairness with your fellow men and women of the world. We are here to assist you coming into light, to help teach you how to love and come into love. You sir, have spoken about being, "I AM love:" You must speak love and do love, as well, then love is complete in your world. Thank you.

Michael: Sondjah, I have a dilemma! My knowing is this: That as we have been trained or bred, identify with structure and form, which are mortal, which always die, disappear, go away, then we get trapped into a thought process and a believing of scarcity. In total contradiction to the Law of Thermodynamics, where the universe is continually expanding, and therefore abundance is expanding, is it our task to stay within the context of form and structure, in order to deal with the human condition, or is it potentially more productive to figure out how to identify a catalyst to move all souls to a place where they simply feel themselves, know themselves as love, as abundance, as unending, as limitless? I find my mind bouncing back and forth between the "knowing of abundance" and in the trap that I too, have been in, in simply a degree of impatience to find out how to get everybody else there, all the time. Is that a question or a confession?

SONDJAH: You have said a good deal. Let us take this apart, please. Let us deal with structure and form: We are striving to teach you sustainable forms and flexible structures. All structures and all forms are not bad, or evil, or unproductive, or go to demise. What we are striving to do is to teach you how to think of form and structure in terms of sustainability, how to design a sustainable family. Now, a family is a structure, it is a form, and from these forms are born, are molded, new beings who love or do not love themselves, and love or cannot love others. We must begin with these elements. You have not much concern—and I will put this strongly to you—to worry about other people’s loving, until you love completely, yourself, to love yourself completely, and know that with confidence. And to know thoroughly that you are loveable eternally, unconditionally, forever, and that you have all you need within yourself to achieve that status, that position, that beingness, that I AM that you so strongly yearn for. Each of you has this within you, only your form that you see yourself, and the structures you live by, limit how you love yourself, free yourself—or not—to love others.

Michael: I just didn’t want anybody to leave, so I asked a long question!

SONDJAH: I will encourage you to develop your questions, for these are primary to sustainability—all the forms of sustainability. You must come to that place where you ask what we call "cogent questions"—competent, capable, insightful, even devious questions that lead to larger answers. Your minds are curious, and the curious mind is a God-like factor, a God-like characteristic. When you ask these questions of tremendous curiosity, you are expressing that God-beingness within you and sharing it with others for their enlightenment. It is not self-serving, but it is generous.

I thank you for your time this evening, so bring your questions next time, after we have our opening, and you are welcome to ask them. Be prepared for that, please. Write down your questions during the week, and I and our Teaching Council will be glad to answer them. Oftentimes you will hear me stop and pause, and I am in the process of receiving whispers in my ears, so to speak, from my colleagues, who assist me with these questions.

Your God is truly an all-knowing God. Your Creator knows all and is everywhere aware of you and all conditions, and all places and all times. I however, do not; and my colleagues, neither do they. Until we become more perfect and complete, we must also collaborate. I hope you will be patient with us. We thank you and bid you good night, and wish you well in your journey of life, your growing, your lessons, your challenges. Love yourself, my friends; care for yourself as you would a child, for you are that tender, that dear and that new. Good night. (Group: Good night and thank you.)


1. Be a Fundamentalist - make sure the Fun always comes before the mental. Realize that life is a situation comedy that will never be cancelled. A laugh track has been provided. Have a good laughsitive twice a day, and that will insure regularhilarity.

2. Remember that each of us has been given a special gift - just for entering. So you are already a winner!

3. The most powerful tool on the planet today is Tell-A-Vision. That is where I tell a vision to you, and you tell a vision to me. That way, if we don't like the programming we're getting, we can change the channel.

4. It is true. As we go through life thinking heavy thoughts, thought particles tend to get caught between the ears, causing a condition called truth decay. So be sure to use mental floss twice a day. And when you're tempted to practice tantrum yoga, remember what we teach in Swami's Absurdiveness Training class: "Don't get even, get odd."

5. If we want world peace, we must let go of our attachments and truly live like nomads. That's where I no mad at you, you no mad at me. That way, there will be no madness on the planet. And peace begins with each of us. A little peace here and a little peace there, pretty soon all the peaces will fit together to make one big peace everywhere.

6. I know great earth changes have been predicted for the future, so if you're looking to avoid earthquakes, my advice is simple. When you find a fault, just don't dwell on it.

7. There's no need to change the world. All we have to do is toilet train the world, and we'll never to have to change it again.

8. If you're looking to find the key to the Universe, I have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is - there is no key to the Universe. The good news is - it has been left unlocked.

9. Finally, everything I have told you is channeled. That way, if you don't like it, it's not my fault. And remember, enlightenment is not a bureaucracy. So you don't have to go through channels.

Teacher: Sondjah Melchizedek

TR: Daniel Raphael

Jan 28, 2008

SONDJAH: This is Sondjah; let us continue. As we proceed farther and farther into the lessons, you will find that we are leaving a history, that there are issues which we have left behind, but once again in the future, we will resurrect the main succinct points and we will fulfill them. We will flesh them out and complete them, and these will be our findings—your findings and our findings—for this is a co-creative effort as you recall, and so these are "our" findings—you possess them, we possess them—they are "ours." Therefore, we have a mutual sharing of this activity and are the results of our combined efforts.

I am very pleased and congratulate the two individuals who have gone through the history of our work together, to glean the nuggets, the instructions, the parameters, the requirements that we will eventually satisfy. These are very simple, very straightforward when you see them as a whole, for the instructions are very brief usually, and so each lesson can be made very tight and very succinct. We will be using these records that you are making, and one of those are right here today. [This is Daniel: He is talking about you, Sheralyn and Hilarie.] This is Sondjah: So we are pleased to have this at hand. You will be as pleased equally in the near future, as you see these historical stones along the way that we must mark our progress.

Tonight we are going to revisit an issue, which we have not satisfied. Several lessons ago we talked about the intentions of 6 relationship paradigms. You were assigned the work of deliberating and deciding and formulating a design for an intentional relationship. What would be the intention for each one of these 6 relationship paradigms? So far, 2 relationships have been worked upon, and this is a good beginning.

Tonight we will go back to the foundation of all sustainability — we will be talking about values. What are the values of human relationships? You would not need to divide into sub-teams tonight if you did not want to, as we are quite small in number. These values underlie each fundamental relationship, each of these paradigms of relationships. You are to work on this, this evening. You may, if you wish, proceed ahead towards beliefs. Remember, we had the 4 layers to each relationship, and that is the values, the beliefs, the intentions and then the actions/activities that people carry out to fulfill a relationship. So tonight, I ask you to settle into your team or your sub-teams and work on the values of each relationship.

I will give you a clue, however, that the values that you decide upon are almost all fundamental to all human relationships, so with that, you have an insight about the differences—and the lack of them—if there are any. You may find that there are differences in values in different relationships, but we suggest that you think in terms of universals. Are there any preliminary questions before you go to your sub-teams, or decide to work as a whole team? (Pause.) Hearing none, I ask you now to proceed to your task and work in your team or sub-teams. I will not decide this for you, as this is something you will become acquainted with in each session that we have, each time we meet. Until later, I bid you good night.

* * * * * * *


SONDJAH: This is Sondjah. It is very good to see you struggle with these issues, struggling with values, to find which are core and which are in orbit around those core values. You have done a good service for yourselves, to inquire, to wonder and to debate these issues, these values of a sustainable society, of a growing society, a progressive society.

Before I get to your questions, I will make this further assignment to you: This begins a new aspect, a new chapter for you and the work that you will do in your sub-teams and in this larger team. I and the Teaching Council that I work with have devised this element for you, which is very simple, and that is to discover the core values that sustain human society. I would ask that when you return to your homes, inquire on the Internet or in your libraries and encyclopedias, or in your religious studies. Many ideas have come forward tonight, which are successful and would lead you to right ends? What we are doing by asking you to do this, and to assign you this work outside of the team is to get you acquainted with the basic function of the team outside of our meetings. That is to do fundamental social research, which is core to the success of the Design Teams. Why invent the wheel, when it has already been invented?

You have hundreds of years of thoughtful scientists, philosophers, theologians and enlightened individuals who have spoken to you already about the values that sustain society and the values that sustain relationships. We would ask you to do this research. I will also give you a clue, you will probably find far less than a dozen core values that sustain relationships, society, and civilization. Our work is limited to an individual’s relationships: relationships between your self and another person or several persons in a family or a community. We are not talking about societal values—that is a different issue. Those become politicized and "religiousized" and can spin you out of orbit and out of control, and your time would be unproductive. Think in terms of relationships of the individual. This will help keep you on focus. Do you understand?

You may have discerned too that we have now become engaged with each other for almost a dozen lessons. [Note: The beginning five sessions were not recorded or transcribed.] The first few were exploratory, where you could go far a field and ask any question you wanted to, about almost any subject. And then we began to explore with you, the Co-creative Design Team process, where you were given assignments to go into your sub-teams and discuss the issues and try to come to some agreement, some findings of yours that you could bring back to the team.

We have talked about the various levels of relationship paradigm, from the values, to the beliefs, to the intentions and then to the actions and behaviors of individuals in these relationships. We assigned to you the work of working on an intention for one of the relationship paradigms, and you discussed and worked on this for at least 2 sessions. We have brought you back down to the very "core," the very "heart" foundation of all human relationships, and that has to do with values. It is from here, my friends, that we will continue to build the larger and larger aspects of relationships, until we have fully explored all the relationship paradigms and have written all the values, all the beliefs, intentions and behaviors that sustain each relationship paradigm. This is what we have done, this is where we are, and this is where we are going. Is that clear? (Yes.) Thank you.

Therefore, your work now is to go outside of the team, do your research at home on the Internet, make your notes, print them out—or whatever you need to do—and bring them back and share them with the larger team, or if we have a large number of individuals, then we will return to the sub-team format. I have no further instructions regarding this, tonight or for the week ahead, unless you have questions. I am also open to questions, which are unrelated to relationships, if you have them at this time. First, questions about relationships, please, and then the ones that are extraneous.

Sue: Sondjah, this is Sue, and I think mine is kind of a combined relationship and extraneous question: The society that a lot of us have grown up in is either you fear God or you love God. And there’s a word that sends a chill up my spine always, when people talk about "sin," as they do things for God because they are afraid they will be given demerits or whatever God does. In developing a relationship—especially with people that really come from that basis, how does the other side look at that type of a structure, as opposed …I mean ... in other words when I would be relating to someone about God is Love, but I would be talking to someone who is in such a fearful place because of sin, can you help in the verbiage that we might be able to use, or some way that could open their eyes regarding that? Or maybe I am off base?

SONDJAH: No, you are certainly not off base. Let me discuss how we see it from this side, as you mentioned. We do not use the term "sin" in this side of the universe, the non-material realm. The word "sin" is used to guide the societies and social structure and evolution of social development in mortal realms. I would rather give you a much broader perspective, one that you can use here, as we use it in our regard, in our realm, that has to do with separation and integration. Any action, any thought, any verbiage, any discourse that causes separation, works against the good of the universe; works against the good and the union of the individual with the larger universe. This may be even internal to a mortal mind, where there is "sin," as you would put it, and if you used it in the terms that we use it, that causes separation between the individual and their reality, their participation in their society, their families, and in their unhappy health with themselves.

Separation is any activity—even in the mindedness of an individual—that causes them to come away from and be separate from the universe, from God’s love, for example, from the affection of others, from the good working order with a group, from being a part of the team. You would not identify this as sin, and we do not identify it as sin in this realm either. How you would use the word "sin" to speak to one who is conservative in their religious base, would be an issue that you would need to work with and prepare for, before you speak with them. Any action as you have defined sin, does cause separation. It causes an illness, a boil upon the good working order of an individual in relationship with others. It is a festering wound; it is a rotten part, which must be excised in order for the individual to regain health.

"Sin," as it has been stated in the Old Testament includes some of the most obvious prohibitions of behavior. They proscribe behaviors, but where are the prescriptive rules that gave individual direction? These are what you would look to, to combine the issue of values and sin. What are the things that people should do, to engender "oneness" with themselves, in their minds and with their fellow brothers and sisters, in their families and their communities? This is called "love," as you say, but "love" is a general term. Few can encompass this word and know its true meaning. We hold love in a different definition than you do; we hold love as a vibration of oneness, of seeking of oneness with all others, to come together and be "one." In love there is no separation with self, with God, or with others.

When we are truly in love with God, we are embraced in Its "wholeness," where God embraces us, and "we" embrace God, so that we are "one" in vibration, "one" in energy and frequency with the Source. We become fully empowered, emanating vibrations of light to others; we are love itself. But until then, you must adhere to the subsets of behaviors, attitudes, thoughts and words, which support love. These would all encompass the true, wonderful values of social lubrication: compassion, mercy, forbearance, patience and so on. These are all the subsets, which cause love to come into existence. These are the practicing touchstones for social behavior that is responsible, and more than responsible, it is heartfelt at-one-ness, where you understand ahead of time, not what is expected, but what will join you with others in wholeness.

The oneness idea you have mentioned is truly good, but what leads to oneness? These are the values that you must seek. Sin, as others have said, are those behaviors that cause separation, those "no-no's," as you have said that people must not do. Otherwise these behaviors will destroy their societies and their lives, and fail the individual to have structure in their thinking, in dealing with others individually and as a group, and in structuring their own life as moral individuals, who are ethical. How can one be of service, if one does not know how to structure their thoughts and conformance in good, productive order with others? (Thank you.)

Are there other questions before we close?

Student: Your comments have been very helpful, thank you.

SONDJAH: You are welcome. I truly strive to be of service. I was selected not because I might be pleasing, but because of what I know, and how I must relate to new individuals who have come across to the other side, into the mansion worlds. I bid you good night, and I wish you well on your assignment. Know that when you request sincerely, with clear intent, we are there with you to assist you in disclosing these values, which you seek. We will assist you in ferreting out the avenues, streets and byways of your social structures and your lines of communication to find them. They are really quite easy, and you will find them very quickly. Good night. (Good night.)

SONDJAH: Good evening, this is Sondjah. (Good evening.) It is a pleasure to be with you. You seem to be quite at peace tonight. A new blanket of snow seems to have put a lull and a dampening into the energy around us, and this is good. I wish to relate that we had a good experience a few days ago, discussing many questions that had been latent among you for quite some time, and two of our members took it upon themselves to invite me to their home, to ask these questions.*** You will find the dialog and discussions perhaps enlightening and helpful to our discussions about Co-Creative Design Teams, particularly having to do with relationships and the work that we are doing with that.

[*** Editor - The Q & A Session dated Feb. 2, 2008 referred to here is appended in its entirety at the conclusion of this document -]

We have made a good deal of progress. We hope that you are satisfied with how we have been doing. Remember—and I continue to advise you—that this is all developmental, that we are discovering "the way." We know the goal and where we will end up, but how we get there is a co-creative process between you and us. This is new territory for you and for us. We will be making slow progress, perhaps, according to your technological inclinations, but this is hearty work; this is heartfelt, it is solid, it is something that will become very permanent in your culture. We do not say "hope" to become permanent in your culture, for we know that it will become a very permanent element in your education and your families and the relationship designs that you experience and share with your children and grandchildren, and their children in the future.

Last time I asked you to go to your sub-groups, to discuss and try to discern the fundamental values of relationships. What values underpin each of these six relationship paradigms, and I gave you a clue that these values underpin all of them. Some have variations of them, but the values that underlie them are fundamental to every relationship that you would enter into. I might add too that we are here speaking about enlightened individuals, who enter into enlightened relationships. We are talking about those who aspire to have and participate in a sustainable relationship. This requires an advanced mind, a sincere intention and dedication and commitment to their own development in the relationship, as well as being of assistance to their partner.

You may ask quietly in your mind, "Well what percentage of people would engage in an enlightened sustainable relationship for the future?" And we say at this time that we would be most fortunate to acquire a third of your population, even in years from now, after this has been introduced. Not everyone will want to participate; not everyone is inclined to; not everyone has a spiritual inclination or connectedness to their world, to their civilization, their culture, their communities—or even their families. Therefore, they will withdraw. We are talking about pragmatic, spiritually inclined idealists. Now that is quite a mouthful, I suppose, but we are talking about individuals who aspire to an ideal, and who are inclined to take practical steps to fulfill that ideal. There comes a reality for them in the future that what you design for sustainable relationships will become useful to you and to other people in your communities and your society.

You, sitting here, and those who have been here are pragmatic idealists. You are spiritually inclined, and you are willing to do the hard work and have said you will do the hard work, by showing up time after time. We know that in this mountainous state it is most difficult during the winter months to be here every week, and it is difficult as well because this is a new activity and it competes with your old activities, which also meet on the same night. We are greatly indebted to you for being here, for putting forth your effort in a practical way to fulfill ideals, ideals that will satisfy you and give you hope, and others much hope in the future.

Searching for the values of a society are much like a social, anthropological research jaunt, out into a primitive or an unknown culture, where you would go out and be with these people for weeks and months and perhaps years to discern what is important to them. What do they hold important in their culture, for their lives, for their occupations, for their relationships, for their children, for their heritage and for their traditions? What is of value? What is important to you? What is important to anyone who wishes to participate in a sustainable relationship? Here we have a quandary; we have a conundrum that you and we are engaged in, simultaneously, and that is this: That most of you do not know what a sustainable relationship looks like. You have an idea what one would look like as a model, and as an ideal, but we are searching to develop or find the values that underpin sustainable relationships.

Therefore, we asked you to go do some social research on the Internet, at the library, in some old textbooks that you may have for anthropology or sociology and such. You have had an opportunity to discover that. Some of you have had success, and some of you have been daunted by the task. The question that we want to answer is: "What is of value that holds your relationships together, the common values that hold sustainable relationships together?" Let us continue tonight to work on this problem, this issue. You may wish to participate in a single team again, as we did last week, as this is a small group again this evening, or you may diverge and divide into 2 smaller sub-teams, if you wish. It is your choice.

We ask that you give each other opportunity to share your ideals and your ideas about what a sustainable relationship is and what values hold them together. What is of value (valued) in a sustainable relationship? You might ask at the same time, "What is valued in a sustainable relationship that is not usually recognized in a conventional relationship? I know this is an awkward question, but the questions have been similarly posed in times past in research in your societies and as others have gone out to unknown cultures to discover how these cultures stay together and survive and maintain themselves. Are there any questions right now that I could answer for you? (Pause.) Hearing none then let us proceed forward to the teamwork that you will engage this evening, and we will reconvene when you are ready. There is no time set for this, no 20 minutes limitation or 40 minutes—it is simply up to you. You will know when your work has been completed. Do not be surprised if you come to some obvious conclusions very rapidly, and then through the remainder at a slower pace. I will now step back from the microphone and release you to your work. Thank you.

Daniel: It is kind of like he’s in this rocking chair just going, "Oh, it’s nice listening to you guys. It’s been a really nice evening."

SONDJAH: This is Sondjah. The one who I speak through said something quite close to how I feel about what has come through this evening. Between you all, you have made wonderful strides and contributions. You have each helped each other ferret through, sort and sift and discern the values that underpin sustainable relationships. This work will continue. You will find as you do more research that this is a valuable topic, and that you will want to discern again, the beliefs that emanate from these values.

We have spoken about the secondary and tertiary levels that spin out of the values of behaviors and things that you do, think, and say. You also mentioned an educational program as a primary socializing factor for young children who do not come from homes that talk about fundamental social values or the important "glue" that holds relationships, communities, families and societies together. You are literally talking about and developing and inventing the glue that holds sustainable relationships together.

As these two will be gone, [Speaking of Daniel and Sherille] for two Mondays, we wish that you continue, and we wish that you would share the leadership or facilitation for the group. You have ideas and thoughts about what occurs during the week; please bring them forward and share them with others. You may have a tack to go one direction, while others go another. Share your ideas with each other to see what you want to develop. Know, however, that I am here and that I will be available, and most pleased to speak through anyone of you or several of you, if you wish. Now, if you have any closing questions before we adjourn, please address them now.

Michael: I have a question, Sondjah. Not for tonight’s discussion, but for future discussion or feedback, because it keeps coming up in a variety of ways, and that is how do we go about that which is occurring here, where people are getting deeply into defining meaningful, sustainable relationships, and yet leave and go off to friendships and other relationships that don’t resemble that, or are not even open to discussing it? I know at least 4 people in this group, some who are not here tonight who have this experience, and it would be potentially helpful if we could explore that?

SONDJAH: Most certainly. Would you like me to take the time, a few minutes now to discuss this? (Sure.) Certainly. This we knew in advance, that the Co-Creative Design Teams would be a can of worms for some of you. We knew that it would open up issues, which you had not examined and were unaware and then, became aware. Or, it would bring up issues that were latent in your mind and you had hidden them back behind your eyelids ready for the team discussions to bring them to the forefront. This is most difficult for some of you, and almost all of you have experienced this in the past, in one way or another. This waking up in a relationship and wondering why you are in the relationship and what held you there, and what promise it held for you in the future, other than pain and agony and disappointment.

For those who have found pain and difficulty in being here, and going back to their relationships, we offer only that this is part of your journey. Relationships are oftentimes transitory, when they are not founded on stable, solid bedrock of sustainable relationship principles. You have come to a point where you discover that your relationship has no commonalities anymore, and that you have grown, or perhaps your partner has not grown, and that you have grown apart. This is very painful. The choice is to remain and see this as a learning environment, as one spoke of tonight, to see your nemesis as your teacher. This is a very enlightened way to proceed, as long as it is not abusive.

The other potential is to leave the relationship, but before doing so you must ask, "Have I learned everything that I can in this relationship?" as you have been told once before. Truly, relationships are the arena for great spiritual growth. The growth in spirit always begins with the emotional. It has its background in the social and in the personal realms. You are in the grist mill of growth and the large kernels that you have seen, which were nice and beautiful to begin with, and have now been ground into a gruel or a meal, and then if you wait long enough, you’ll find it will turn into wonderful flour, from which you can make something else. You will have the leavening then to bake new bread, in a new relationship.

We do not leave you abandoned. You are never abandoned, for you always have with you a multiplicity of spiritual beings that are with you. You know that there is already the Spirit of Truth about you, which Jesus left when he arose and went into heaven. This Spirit of Truth is his essence; it is the touchstone for knowing what is right and what is not right. It is different and apart from your intuition, but it is a real aid for you now. This Spirit of Truth now is very powerful upon your world and has access to you at any moment. Further, Christ Michael, whom you knew as Jesus, has his presence here—not his physical presence, but truly his individual presence is here for each of you, individually. You can have an intimate personal relationship with him, you can ask him a question and he will answer you forthrightly, promptly and with intense heart energy, so that you will feel this and know it is true. You are not abandoned for you are living in a time now where the eminence, the presence of spirit in many forms is about you and with you. You have within each of you, the fragment of the Creator, this perfect being, who is a part of the Creator, a replication, a perfect image, only in much diminished form, so that you can live with it and it can help you grow. It too is available for you at any time, to ask for advice.

It is best, too, for when you are in these throws of difficulties, to take yourself apart and go into your closet, as Jesus said so many years ago, that quiet space where you can become one to listen, to absent your mind of anything that occupies, other than knowing the presence of the great love that is within you. And when the love outside yourself is so diminished and so wanting, this love within you is so full and so complete, absorb this into your being, elevate yourself into its eminence and walk with that oneness, which you know to be true, and will help you when you leave that closet of quietness and go about your day.

Many of you have entered into relationships naively, innocently, and now you have awakened as an enlightened being. You have become higher; you have really "risen," so to speak; you have resurrected yourself from the old person you were, into a new evolved individual. You are not the same, yet you accept and expect similar or same results from your relationship that you had 20 years ago, or some years ago. This cannot exist. You are in throws of much change. Be gentle with yourself, ask for guidance, guidance that you can tolerate, handle and absorb and use constructively, rather than rushing into change that crushes you and grinds you into nothingness. Be kind to yourselves, love yourselves, and know that you are loved as well.

I know that this is elevated talk about the pragmatics of living in a difficult relationship, but you, my dear friends are here, in a spiritual forum. This is the spiritual forum of living in a society, applying your self, and yes this may be part of the journey to apply yourself in a difficult relationship. Be easy with yourself as you proceed; do not rush quickly, but do so thoughtfully. Always see this as a learning lesson and ask, "What am I to learn from this? Please help me learn this gently." We hope this helps. (Many thanks from group members.)

Our blessing is upon you. Know that each of you has been touched in your hearts and in your souls. Know that you now have a mark of love upon you, which you have accepted a long, long time ago, and now you feel it for real, in your heart and your presence. We love you and we wish you well during your week ahead, good night.




Evergreen/Conifer Co-Creative Design Team appended to CCDT #8

Evergreen, Colorado

Teacher: Sondjah Melchizedek

TR: Daniel Raphael

February 2, 2008

[Special Question and Answer session, requested by Sheralyn & Hilarie.]

SONDJAH: Good afternoon, this is Sondjah. (Good afternoon, Sondjah!) It is a pleasure to be here with you, and I do thank you gratefully, for this opportunity to answer your questions. You know that I am always available, and it is only a matter of when this one is available so you can speak with me directly. I am open to others speaking to me as well, to ask questions and verify. As I was saying candidly, not too long ago, that you are the forerunners of this Co-Creative Team in design. You and we are literally designing the course that will be taught to others in the future. I thank you for developing this workbook, the manual that you are developing—and I am very pleased and proud of you that you have taken the initiative to devise a workbook for guiding those who come afterwards. We are devising this together and we have not obligated you or even asked you to do this, but you have simply come forward, seeing the necessity and you have taken the initiative, and this is remarkable and we give great thanksgiving for this.

We do have other guests with us here today, which are unseen to you, who may or may not wish to come forward afterwards and share their thoughts and comments at that time. So, I am open now to your questions. Please begin.

Sheralyn: Thank you, Sondjah. This is Sheralyn. I have several questions for you this afternoon—they are not in any particular order—so I am going to begin first by asking you: Several times throughout the sessions you have talked about the 23rd Century, either looking at these relationships from today, looking forward to the 23rd Century, or the 23rd Century, looking back. That is a 200-year span. Is there any particular reason that you did that?

SONDJAH: Yes, most certainly. It is an instructional device for one, as it gives you perspective of where we want to be with you in 2 centuries. Two centuries from now, your world will have gone through quite a great deal of chaos, settlement and re-establishment of your societies. In the perspective of 2 centuries, those people 2 centuries from now will be looking back at these preparatory times, where you and I are sitting here together, designing this Co-Creative Design Team and working on relationships. They will be in wonderment at how such primitive individuals, socially, could be engaged in this, but they also know and have the insight that they were guided by spiritual beings who know the design of a successful and sustainable civilization and society.

One can stand at this point and look 2 centuries ahead, scratch their head and think about how do sustainable relationships come into existence? You know that the very beginning is that: 1) is your own desire, and 2) that you wish for the higher, more perfect, sustainable relationships in your own minds, and 3) spirit is here to give you insights into how to design those. Standing at this point, at a long slope of 2 centuries from now, you are looking at sustainable relationships, ones that have come into existence by intention, and have adhered to specific designs to achieve that.

This is a hope. Do you understand that this is not a hopeless project we are working on, but that in 2 centuries, there will certainly be sustainable relationships, and long before that, there will be individual sustainable relationships along the way, just as there are sustainable relationships now. However, the idea and the hope is to replicate sustainable relationships for millions and millions of couples, of families, individuals, and couples that wish to remain together.

Perhaps the perspective most helpful is that you would begin at this point now. As I have said before, it is very difficult for yourselves to place yourselves 2 centuries in the future, and look back at this time, wondering how to build, how to bring these sustainable relationships into existence. This is an instructional point, and I simply offer it to you as perspective. Perhaps the most productive way would begin today, and do the research. We are doing the basic work right now; we’ve begun with values and we will build relationships through that, and I will send you out to your libraries and to the Internet, to do further research, because the elements of sustainable relationships do exist and are known. Does this help? (Yes it does. Thank you.)

Sheralyn: Again through the material you have mentioned, how we have to learn or discover how to live in a multi-dimensional society, through our multi-dimensional social institutions, and that this is a multi-dimensional project, is it possible to give us some clarification of what you mean by this?

SONDJAH: Most certainly! I would be glad to engage the question of multi-dimensionality in these issues. First of all, we are [with] you, and we are dealing right now with 7 dimensions in our discussions. These are not apparent to you. You see 3 or 4 of them—3 of the material and the 4th being time—but the 5th, 6th, and 7th are the morontial dimensions. You have an idea of this by speaking to me and from my discussions with you about the morontial life. The morontial life is discussed in more detail in The Urantia Book. You are welcome to research that there, if you wish. It is not necessary for our discussion, though.

More importantly, I wish to engage multi-dimensionality of these social activities that you will be involved in, in your lifetime. Now, see the social dimensions from those who are most primitive in backward countries. We wish not to identify either any continent, societies, tribes, cultural groups, or ethnicity, though you have a good idea in your mind, where the most brutal, backward and criminal elements of society live—some of which are in your own society, right here. This is dimension 1, the mere survival, and you will see existence and then continued existence for hope and development and growth.

You are seeing the multi-dimensionalities of technical societies—I would not say necessarily, nations, but societies—technical nations have multiple levels of social structures and social existence. You also are aware of nations and societies and clusters/enclaves of individuals, who live in highly evolved spiritual environments. You live in a highly, multiple social setting in your world. We call these dimensionalities of social existence. You must not let this confuse you, however, for the basic fundamentals of social relationships exist in all of these cultures.

We have stuck to the core of simplicity, with the Co-Creative Design Team work—working on relationships—and this is the primary topic we wish to engage before we move on to other topics—though of course, there will be other teams, which will branch out to other fields of economics, trade, commerce, healthcare, education and so on. For the beginning though, it is human relationships, which are fundamental to all our work. So when you consider the multi-dimensionality of social existence, from the most primitive on your planet to the most elevated and enlightened, please keep this in mind, that the relationships that beget healthy children, arise from all of these societies, and the principles are almost all identical. The ethnic and cultural overtones are simply hues and colors to the same basic principal, basic primary colors, which you are so familiar with. (Thank you. I had misunderstood that. Great!) You are welcome.

Sheralyn: Staying with this dimensionalities of social existence, you have made reference in some of the previous sessions about the fact that you are concerned about devising social institutions, I think my question here is, is this something that we are going to discuss in the future, or are we to create a social institution to support a sustainable marriage… a model, at least?

SONDJAH: Let me simply enter the discussion here. We will not "devise one;" we are going to "design one." If I understand your question correctly, the basic research we are doing now, and the findings that you are making in your sub-teams, will be fundamental to designs of every relationship. Let us take a relationship paradigm for example, and let us use the one in which there are a young couple who wish to have no children—we will keep it very simple. The first fundamental part is to discover the fundamental values that underlie a working, functional, healthy, couple relationship without children, and who are young. Then you will write those out, in your design, in your notebook. You will have for this paradigm for the young couple, without children, the values and you will list probably/perhaps a dozen at most. This will be the basic structure; this will be a fundamental design of that relationship. And then, let us say 5 years from now, that we have done our homework and we have completed the design for this relationship paradigm, a couple will pick up your manual, with your names on it, and they will look and see the values: "Do we adhere to these values? Are these our values?" The couple would compare these values and would compare their histories—were these values important to you in your childhood and as you grew up? Or, are 1 or 2 of these values completely foreign to you? Wherever there is a lack of consistency/coherence, then you have some room for growth, and of course growth means problems and resolution of problems. That brings in another value of how to resolve conflict.

You see, we will begin with values and will go with beliefs, and then intentions and behaviors. These 4 areas are only fundamental—there are many, many sub-divisions off of these, which will be studied and devised in future years, as your work becomes well known. Does this help so far, or have I missed your question?

Sheralyn: It certainly helps, Sondjah, and I think I read social institutions as some sort of building or corporation or something that was going to be "set up," to support the relationship.

SONDJAH: Let me explain: "Social institution" is used in sociological terms, meaning it is a non-physical institution. The institution of marriage is a social institution. A family is a social institution. Any couple relationship, where there is coexistence and a sharing of values, beliefs, and activities that are complemental—this is a relationship, a social institution. Education is a social institution as well, as is healthcare. Hospitals and schools are simply the physical manifestations or edifices of these institutions. Is this clear?

Sheralyn: Much better; thank you.

In one of the discussions, looking particularly at the relationship of a 50 year old couple with no children, and we came across something with regard to…. how do we discuss the parameters of that relationship in terms of termination? You mentioned that we should be looking at how long should the relationship last, if it wants to come to an end, then how would you end it? Some of us felt that that might be a little bit awkward, when you are entering into a new relationship.

SONDJAH: Certainly. You are not unacquainted with this, with your pre-nuptial agreements, right? (Correct.) What we are doing with this is making clear, what is actually occurring in your societies already. We are making it obvious that in any relationship, there are intentions for engaging or journeying together, and that one must look at that agenda—it is an agenda—and then look forward to how long will it take to fulfill this agenda.

The professional couple, for example, is a wonderful paradigm, where two individuals in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s, even their early 50’s, who are highly regarded professionals—say a doctor and an accountant, for instance, would share a life together. There are no children, and so it becomes very clear—at least to us—that there are parameters for its existence and that it is very obvious to us, at least, that there are very obvious places where the relationship would come to closure. Intentions—the reason why we began with intentions is to help you write a plan for the relationship—this is the most obvious place to begin.

Values are much more subtle, they are the foundation, they are not always obvious, but only come out when problems and issues and conflicts occur. Conflicts almost always come about through different values. When intentions are discussed, you are talking about a set of agendas, expectations for fulfillment. And of course, when you have expectations for fulfillment, you will either have happiness, satisfaction or fulfillment, or disappointment. Disappointments, one right after the other in a relationship would indicate that the intentions have been fulfilled. It is incumbent upon sustainable relationships to know when their intentions have been fulfilled, and what they look like, and what to do when that occurs. It is simply a good, social, business contract, as any contract has its clauses which indicate what to do in case of problems, insurmountable problems and when the contract is fulfilled. This is most unusual, for most of your human relationships, as you enter into them—particularly in the Western world—with these romantic notions, which do not fulfill themselves for very long. (Hmmm.) Does this help or confuse? (It helps. Thank you.)

Sheralyn: Another area for clarification has to do with this prenuptial, or this social contract, or this marriage contract. At one point we discussed that marriage is not necessary, and I think this is just definition, that you don’t have to get married, i.e. have a civil ceremony—that’s not necessary—but that you do have to have a contractual obligation. Is that correct?

SONDJAH: Yes, the marriage is a ceremony with religious overtones. Marriage contract as a civil entity is very social and a civil binding together. It is an obligation of both parties to perform in certain ways and that they will do this into the future.

Sheralyn: Hmmm. So can I ask another question around that then? You gave us a clue because we were struggling a little bit with this, and you said, "The only clue that I will give you, concerning this subject of a marriage contract, is a marriage is a contractual relationship, which fosters the care taking of children, and outside of that, it can be anything you want to design." So am I to understand that each marriage relationship that we are exploring needs to foster the care taking of children, whether the marriage produces any or not?

SONDJAH: No, the importance is the care of children. It matters not how the contract is drawn. It could be simply a handshake and a kiss. It could be any agreement between two individuals, but it is very important in the case of children, that this is very clear about what will happen in case of death of both parents, death of one parent, care of children and the care for them with the parent away at work, or whatever situation occurs. There must also be an agreement how the children will be cared for when both parents are there. How the children will be raised, how they will be nurtured and groomed to become adults. We are talking about a very responsible, new parenting process.

Marriage is an agreement between individuals; it only becomes social and civil when the obligations of the care of minors, up to the age capable of caring for themselves, becomes the responsibility of society and the community—political community—when the adult parents abandon the children, or have deceased. This is simply responsible "careship" and guardianship for children. Past the care of children, the marriage can be, as I’ve said, it could be a handshake and a kiss; it could be a hug; it could be a solemn agreement; it could be written out; it could be signed in blood, if you wish. You can call it and name it and ceremonialize it however you wish, but the contract is between each other, that there are expectations for performance, common beliefs and shared outlooks, so there is no disappointment. When difficulties arrive, there is a way of resolving that.

Sheralyn: Thank you for clarifying that. Again in the material, Michael, one [member] of the group brought this question up once before, but there still seems to be, for me, some confusion, and that is the many comments about "the individual is where we start." That everything begins with the consciousness expansion, the growth, ethical, moral—whatever—those are my words, but it begins with the individual. So it’s a little difficult then to start with the looking at couples and marriages, or am I just being too detailed?

SONDJAH: Isn’t it though? I would agree with you and we have discussed this at great length in our own teaching council, how to prepare our lesson plans. And so we begin with the conscious couple. In our idealized teaching environment, we begin with the conscious young couple, who wish to have children, and they go to some wise person and say, "Do you have any guidance for us in how to raise children so they become whole and healthy and socially responsible for themselves and for their relationships and for their society and community?" And you would say, "Why, yes, we have this manual here, which was devised by the Co-Creative Design Team, working on relationships." Thus they would begin studying that and in honoring the patterns, the designs of that relationship paradigm that they want to adhere to, and they would enter into child rearing responsibly. The result we hope for—and we know the result will be—that the children that are begotten from this relationship, are raised in a healthy functional, responsible and accountable way, where they are socialized; they are capable, and competent to integrate themselves into their larger communities, once they leave home, and even before they leave home. So rather than beginning with educating children right from infancy, we of course, have to deal with the adults who have begotten this child, so we begin with the procreative couple. But in these early stages of the Co-Creative Design Team process, we are willing to begin anywhere! We are very pleased that you have begun with engaging an open-mindedness for these 6 paradigms of relationships. (Thank you.) We will get to the beginning eventually—it may take us a while, but we have lots of time.

Sheralyn: Well, that was helpful in terms of answering the question about the individual—and I was thinking of the adult individual—but it makes sense to me now, where you are talking about the child, rather than start there, we are starting with the parents that are going to raise the child, so that’s great. So that leads me to looking at this issue of how the contract is designed to terminate, especially where children are concerned, because we have currently, a mess, when it comes to divorces. Even if there is no civil ceremony, but a marriage contract, who is going to enforce it?

SONDJAH: This is the most difficult conundrum that your present society presents, to the answer. First, it will be the moral fiber of the individuals who enter into this relationship. There truly is no enforcing the responsibilities of parenthood, other than the mindedness of the parents, the individuals and grandparents, and nearby community, to assist in rearing or raising these children. This is part of the educational process, which we will get into eventually, that in your educational institutions, there must be a connection between education and the sustainability of your communities, and so education will become, and will engage in the education of individuals in how to participate in a sustainable relationship. This is unknown territory to your public education system, but it is primary to a sustainable community. Does this take us too far?

(No, I think it’s helpful. Thank you.)

Sheralyn: So in the event we are looking at the relationship, where the couple have agreed not to have children, I am unclear exactly, what we are investigating in that relationship.

SONDJAH: Let me please go back and answer your prior question about termination. The passions for your human relationships have caused me to not answer your question. Termination is a part of a relationship from the beginning. It is a question that is asked. Under what conditions would we divorce? Would we separate and abandon the children, to be raised by one of us, where the other would not be present? Under what conditions would we do this, and so the couple would raise those issues of unfaithfulness, or social irresponsibility—meaning addiction to drugs and things of that sort, or waywardness, where the one is not working and is not being responsible for the care of the children, and has actually become another "child" or ward of that relationship. There are numerous situations, which must be raised by this responsible couple.

You are really speaking about a highly evolved couple, who wishes to engage in a responsible way to have a sustainable relationship that will last through all the phases of their lives, into new relationships. We are simply making it obvious that there are various stages and steps of evolution in a relationship, and that thought must be given for each era. And when the procreative couple relationship does end—and it does end when the children leave home—then what does the couple do? They can certainly remain together if that is their wish; they will simply need to redesign it or have adapted their own of being in relationship to the new standards and beliefs and expectations of their empty nest home and relationship.

Again, we are talking about the highly evolved responsible relationship. We know that we will not be able to reach couples who come together and beget children with no thought of consequences, who are together for who knows what reasons. These are couples that will not participate in this program.

Let me also go afar a little bit, in that you will see in a very near few years, a voluntary eugenics program that will be available in your world, particularly in your highly evolved nations, where you have highly evolved dating services now, where people can discover who their right and perfect mate is. Along with that database will come their gene structure for compatibility and for recessive genes, which cause birth defects and other problems later in life. Again I say, this is voluntary and you can count on this occurring within the next 5 to 10 years.

This is not the ultimate program that we see, but this is the beginning of a highly evolved world, where you have the very beginning, the very nubbins of an early germination of—not an advanced society—but a whole society of whole individuals, who are spiritually, physically, and socially connected and wish to become whole and to raise children who do not have to anticipate problems of Multiple Sclerosis when they are age 35, for instance. This is most distressing and debilitating to families, to individuals, and to your societies—and this is avoidable. We are not talking about elitism, and surely this will be brought up, but this is simply the survival of the species, and what better way to do this than on a voluntary basis? (Thank you.)

Sheralyn: So I had not appreciated the 6 designs of relationship, merely as sort of a stepping stone, through a relationship evolving and the kids leaving home, because I was having problems in looking at couples that didn’t have children, trying to see what would we be discussing for that relationship. Would we be discussing their role in the community, how they could support other families that have children—and I guess that’s up to us to design.

SONDJAH: Yes, the external motivations for having a relationship are simply external. What we are concerned about are the internal motivations and internal operation that will sustain a relationship to so that it is able to satisfy external expectations. A couple who is professional and who traveled tremendously and are absent, there must be something that brings them together, some commonality where they find a union and satisfaction, over the years. We are simply making it more obvious to everyone, that the years change, individuals age and that the expectations change, and the levels or expectations for happiness and satisfaction, change—simply to be aware of that.

We truly do hope that couples can engage in multiple paradigms in relationships in their lives. This is wonderful, but it is not the "end of the world" when they come apart and no longer find commonality; this is quite normal. You each are most unique in your personality compositions, some of which will not become known to you until your 60’s and 70’s or even later. You have many differences, which become known then, but of course at the same time if you can appreciate it, you will have made many, many more commonalities in the duration of your life.

If I may interject, when you begin working with this material, you for instance may want to have the transcribed material on the eugenics set aside and kept in a separate folder, or separate page. It will become a part of the family education process and your education process. It will also become—only peripherally or externally apart of your medical care system as well. These you will begin to find interconnectedness of all the material that we are making. You have the capacity in this early era, to separate these and keep them whole, but then you can separate them and divide them out into separate areas as time goes by, and add to them. You now have—or will have—software, which will be able to integrate and do tremendously insightful searches and connectedness between these various areas in time.

Sheralyn: Thank you, Sondjah. I’m seeing now that the relationships kind of divide up into two intentions—those couples that have children and those who do not—and the other area we looked at was single hood. What are the intentions of single hood? This is someone who decided not to get married, not to have a partner, not to have children—when we look at that particular example, are we looking for a role in community?

SONDJAH: Yes, we are speaking about a social integration of the individual. We are also talking about the development of a social psyche in the individual, so that they can survive as a single in a healthy way. It is important in the education and socialization of children that they learn it is not necessary to be in a couple relationship, or to be married, or to have children, but that they can live a meaningful life on their own in its single situation, within the community of other single individuals. There are many group activities, which singles can participate in, which are outside the working realm or easy to relate realm of those who are in coupled relationships. Singles in community are a very powerful force to contribute to the larger community of the whole—of the whole community, meaning the married couples, the couples without children, and the procreative couples, that the individuals can unite into these amorphous groups. They can find commonality and move from one group to another, for political, social, spiritual, cultural reasons. It is very wonderful, what you will see in the future, as singles begin to organize themselves into pliable, amorphous, moving groups, where one can participate easily, and enter into and exit easily and make contributions, and to remain in groups and become leaders if they wish to. Singles have a tremendous contribution to make to society, and their worth and their value has not been found or organized yet, in a manner that can assist the larger community to exist more easily.

Let me give you an example: There may be a man or a woman who enjoys children and enjoys caring for children, who would be a good nanny and who offers their time and services as a nanny, traveling companion, or in-home educator for children, without having the burden of going home to their own children. This is a wonderful compromise for individuals who cannot bear children or cannot stand the burden of having children, the stresses of children 24/7. It is quite apparent that raising children responsibly is a difficult task, but is manageable for those with the capacity to do so.

Sheralyn: Thank you. Now I’m asking a question about intentions; this was unfortunately from a session I missed, but I understand from the groups, some people wrote their own personal intention for that relationship, and others wrote a group intention. Could you clarify what would be the best thing for us to do in a relationship in these six examples?

SONDJAH: Individually. I would suggest that each of you write your own intentions for each of the relationship paradigms. For some of the paradigms for you, it will simply be an exercise in devising intentions that support a sustainable relationship, as a relationship paradigm. It is also helpful to do it in a group, because it is a discovery process, to write the intentions as you, as a group, would see them, and then to choose and decide upon the intentions, which the group finds. However, in a group setting, you will have differences and individuals should certainly sequester or hold aside intentions, which they think are valuable, which the group may not feel are valuable. Again, you have tended to make these assignments overly difficult.

You have tended to get into too many differences, and have not seen the heart or the simplicity of it all. This will come in time. We do not interfere in that process as it is a developmental, group process; it’s a dynamic of being in a working team, and so it is developmental. You go through these developmental stages of working in a team, and eventually, you will get to the point where you all see clearly what needs to be done. We know that this will work best in groups, which are cohesive, which have worked together consistently over time, but these are skills which can be taken away very quickly by individuals into new teams, where they do not remain with you. This is a real activity that occurs. Your groups will be amorphous and you will leave and move to other groups, but there [will] always tend to be 2-3 people who will hold together to one relationship paradigm and see it through to the end.

Sheralyn: Thank you. I understand that it would be good to collect these intentions and have them written down somewhere?

SONDJAH: Yes, it would be helpful to do that. That’s why we are advising that you have notebooks and notepads, and that someone be a recorder. If we had 50 people in a group, in a team, it would be wonderful to have that many, as we would have enough to have a recorder for each relationship paradigm, and we could make progress rather rapidly. We have not assigned or requested that an individual become a recorder for any one paradigm, but that is our hope for a design, for working with you, that there would eventually be one person who has chosen to be the recorder for lets say the paradigm of the young couple without children, and they would be the record keeper of the findings in the discussion. These would always be very succinct and very simple, and would be best distilled after each session, for simplicity’s sake. Does this make sense? (Yes.)

We are hoping that individuals who come and go in the team, this local Evergreen team, will not leave but see this through as a developmental exercise process of going through stages of growing and evolving with us. Surely, it is doing that, and we are very pleased and we feel that you are on track, that we are on track developmentally, and that we have not come to an impasse or a place where we cannot move forward. We are working with overcoming bottlenecks as they come up and we hope to move forward, and that individuals will continue to come to the team to see how it unfolds and develops. You are living in an organism; you are living in a team organism that is developing and is imperfect, and we thoroughly know it is imperfect, and we are quite glad that it is imperfect. Otherwise, you would not be engaged, you would not be curious, you would not be present, you would not even be hopeful. (Thank you.)

[This is Daniel: How are we doing for going through this? Are you perhaps half way through or more?]

Sheralyn: About half way, yes. I think more than half way. Do you want to stop?

Daniel: We’ll be able to type it out. Let’s go ahead and stop for now.

* * * * * * * * * *

SONDJAH: We are ready to begin again.

Sheralyn: In a previous session, Sondjah, Debbie had talked about the breakdown of families in areas of poverty and chaos, and that children were born out of wedlock and many of them just left to live in the gutters and out of trashcans. You had mentioned at the time, in response to this, that this is a demoralizing, debilitating situation, uninhabitable soul situation. I beg your pardon, for many people, who will never come to know God, never come to know the yearning of reaching for a higher being, the friendship with God, the friendship which lies essentially within themselves. And so I had a concern about this because having visited certain shanty towns in Bangladesh and Calcutta, where the poverty is just beyond belief, I can honestly say that I looked in the faces of the people there, and they seemed to me, to be as close to God as anyone else I know. So I was a little concerned about how this statement could be true; how could anybody have an "uninhabitable soul?"

SONDJAH: Certainly, I’ll be glad to address your question. There are in fact, very few individuals who are not inhabitable by the presence of God. Those individuals are mindless, have a deranged mind or have some unhealthy, mental, organic or functional situation in their brain or their mind, which makes them unreceptive to the guidance of God. Almost never, are the external circumstances of life contributory to the inhabitability of an individual by the presence of God. It is only by the decisions of individuals, to live outside the parameters of a God-like life, that they become uninhabitable, or where the God presence has left.

This occurs more often in societies, situations, and environments, which have criminality, great mental disease, or drug abuse and such problems as that—social abuse included. It requires personal choice to do wrong consistently, for this situation to occur. God’s presence is a choice, on its part, to remain with the individual, or not. It is much like abandoning a garden, which will not yield any fruit, any vegetables, no matter how well it is cared for. Therefore, the circumstances of poverty, of criminality, of an environment, are highly contributory to many souls becoming empty and Godless. This is no choice of the Creators, or the God presence, but only occurs at the extreme circumstances, where there is no possibility of it making a contribution to the individual, or the individual reaching up to the presence of God. Does this help?

Sheralyn: Yes, although it leads me to other questions, because I understood that the soul entered the physical body, during the first few months of the embryonic stage.

SONDJAH: Let us differentiate between the presence of God and the soul—they are distinctly different. (Right.) The soul is—as I explain it, as I have shared with others—is the record keeper. It is the repository of all conscious, moral, ethical and socially responsible decisions and activities of service. It is the simple repository of that. Many souls fly away empty, as they wing their way toward the mansion worlds after death, and these will have to start all over. Life is a means of exercising decisions, and of contributing to the weight and dimension and quality of your soul—your moral, ethical and socially responsible decisions, and your unselfish urges and demonstrations of service, contribute to your soul greatly. The presence of God is there always, urging you on, to show a new way, to urge and to guide the new mind, the new personality, and a way forward to make decisions. Even decisions made with the blink of an eye, are still decisions made by the individual. To harm or to steal or to kill or to injure, to voice abusive words, or to be unkind—these are all decisions, which contribute nothing to the person’s soul.

Sheralyn: So what is God presence then?

SONDJAH: God’s presence is literally the "presence of God," the fragment of God that lies within each of you. It is that higher entity within you, that fragment of the Creator. The Creator has chosen to be with you, each individually. The Creator has created you specifically, to be with you individually, uniquely. You have a remarkable, unique relationship with the Creator, and the Creator is within each of you. You have an opportunity when you meditate, to be in direct contact with your God presence, the Father fragment—if you want to call it that—and it is there to assist you, to enlighten you.

Oftentimes you will look at a situation, such as you did in Bangladesh, and you will see that their God was there before you, in the presence of another. God helped you to see that; God helped you to reveal this to you. This is a new knowing for you, a new acquaintance and so you became aware that God is everywhere present. This is a wonderful quality, which you as a God indwelt individual knows. You feel God’s presence in others, and when you become still in your mind and your thoughts, you also feel the presence of the Creator in yourself, and this is a most magnificent arena for personal growth.

Sheralyn: This is why it is so difficult for me to understand how a child or adult can become uninhabitable by God, because I believe that God is the essence of each and every one of us. The fact that we might be unaware of that presence is one thing, but the fact that the presence is always eternally present in each of us, is my belief, so I struggle with that.

SONDJAH: It is a good belief and you are not wrong—it is simply another way of viewing the individual. We do not even strive to have you believe as we do. It will be something you will come to know eventually.

Sheralyn: Hmmm. But the God presence can leave a person?

SONDJAH: Yes. Why would you remain in an abandoned house with the lights out? (Wow! Thank you.)

Sheralyn: I think we covered this before, but we had talked about families being essential to the community and for the continuity of worlds, because our world was on the brink of extinction. And I’m assuming it’s on the brink of extinction due to over-population, but this might not be true….?

SONDJAH: Is there a question from that? Would you like clarification?

Sheralyn: I think so, because if everything we’re about is the procreation of children, and we’re trying to look at relationships that are going to last the next 200 years, it’s hard in that same breath to look at the fact that next week we might all be extinct, so what’s the point? [Snickering all around.]

SONDJAH: Your point is well taken from the human perspective—that is the "glass half empty" attitude. We always have a "glass half full," and in our regards, and as we see your world, it is not on the brink of extinction; it is certainly on the brink of decimation. There will be people left after the crises, that will begin to occur very shortly. More and more, you will see this. Many people will die—this is unavoidable—on a planet that is still highly populated. You are on the edge of at least being 2/3 over-populated, to sustain a world easily and comfortably and capably, for those who remain.

As your world has not been minded to practice a means of global birth control, you have now become over-populated, with no means of reining this in. This is a racehorse that has run loose, and you are on the carriage behind with no way to rein it in and to slow it down. There is simply no way for the human species to now regulate its own growth; it is out of control. This over-population is the primary cause of all the sustainability problems, social and material that you experience on your world right now. You are simply seeing the most evident unsustainable aspects materially, with your problems of pollution, with oil being diminished and the resources of your world being used up at an incredibly and astonishing rate.

What you haven’t seen is the nearness, the proximity of an unsustainable civilization. You will see the grossest evidence of this within not too many years. You will see the decimation of large populations rather rapidly; it will sadden you, it will make the world stand still, and people will shudder. We do not want to cause fear in you; there is nothing to be fearful about this—it is simply going to occur; it is unavoidable; you have passed that point. Your scientists have worried about passing what they call the tipping point of reining in pollution and carbon dioxide, methane and the other greenhouse gasses. This too is not past the point of no return, as it could be abated right now, but no one has the organization or will to do so, as there is too much money to be made, continuing as you are doing.

Too much political willfulness, selfishness, egoism, nationalism that will not rein in the growth that is now coming onto your world, in your 2nd and 3rd world countries. You have passed the point of no return economically, to rein in your world, to stop or decrease the greenhouse gasses and stop pollution. If you did that today, it would stop and it would decrease and you could save your world, but that is not going to happen and you know it.

Sheralyn: Thank you. Yes, I was aware that certain countries had introduced planned procreation… I believe Singapore did some 10 years ago, and Hong Kong. Anyhow, I think this is heading toward the final question, and that was back to children again and the raising of children, children of quality, and that this is an essential ingredient for sustainable future. Could you just expand on what you mean by that, that the children of the future have to be made of a particular ingredient or is it about their evolvement that we are already seeing now, in terms of their being born into a higher consciousness, so they are already coming in with gifts far beyond those we’ve developed in our lifetimes?

SONDJAH: Several things are occurring on your planet that some of you are aware of. One is that there are individuals and families who are raising their children to become children of quality, meaning children who are socially responsible, accountable and contribute to the welfare and good of their communities and societies, and to themselves. There are other children coming into the world who bring your potential—you call these "crystal children," the "indigo children," or the "violet children." These children are being born everywhere, all over your world; these children bring in with them, new capacities for enlightenment, for raising their consciousness; they are bringing with them the capacity to live in a harmful, hurtful, detrimental family, society and situation, and still come out to be morally, ethically and meaningful, responsible individuals in their communities and the world. This is most remarkable! But you will see these individuals more and more, come from the ghettos, come from poverty, come from the barrios, who will come forward to become great leaders, but no one would expect anyone [from these situations] to come forward of any worth or value or contribution to their world.

Lastly/thirdly, you are seeing individuals who are raising the consciousness of their lives, their communities, themselves. These are individuals who come from ordinary families, who read material and come in contact with a higher consciousness, who are aware that something more is going on in their world, and so they "live the light," that is they express the light of the Creator within them, the God presence. Their intention is to live that radiance in their societies, and their intentions broadcast this energy to their world. They live with the conscious intention of living in harmony and oneness and wholeness. Wherever they go, this is a conscious intention, and they spread this vibration in the world. This raises the consciousness, the vibration of your world and assists in new children coming into your world, who are already in a higher consciousness than their parents. It may not have been from their parents, though their parents are certainly major contributors to raising the vibration and consciousness of their children. These three areas are primary to bringing children of quality into the world. We are not necessarily speaking of a material improvement, though you will see these too, come into the world with remarkably pure gene structures. We do not provide any clarification for that statement at this time.

Sheralyn. Thank you Sondjah, I think that concludes Hilarie’s and my questions for today. Thank you.

SONDJAH: Hilarie, did you have any questions from yourself?

Hilarie: I can’t think of anything she missed; she was very thorough.

SONDJAH: Okay. I want to thank you so very much for your participation today, and I want to thank you for taking the time to hone your questions, to develop them and seek clarification. What you have done today will be transcribed and shared with others, and will become a very meaningful part of the history of your local team. I wish you well, and thank you! (Thank you, Sondjah!)

Daniel: Let’s see if anyone else is here. (Pause.) Well, there are, but they are not saying anything.






Evergreen/Conifer Co-Creative Design Team, #9

Evergreen, Colorado

Teachers: Sondjah Melchizedek and Nebadonia

Topics: Primary values: Life, equality & growth

TR: Daniel Raphael

February 25, 2008

SONDJAH: Good evening, this is Sondjah. (Welcome back.) I am pleased to be here with you once again. When we last parted, we had spoken about values for the last 3 or 4 weeks. We let you "stew" a bit about that, to think and to meet in your sub-teams where you devised many values of great importance. I repeated several times over those weeks, that you would find perhaps 5 to at most 10 values, which were central to all relationships, central to all human activities, in relationship to others.

I will give you now, the three primary values, from which all others are derived. First is the value of life. One must respect the life of another individual, as being separate, apart from you, and of equal value, which leads us to the second value, which is equality. Equality is paramount in the entire universe. I, Sondjah Melchizedek, have lived in your earth terms, hundreds of thousands of years. Time is of little relevance to me, yet my dear friends, I am no more valuable to the Creator than you are. I have taught hundreds of thousands—perhaps millions—of mortals, who have made their transition into the morontial realm, yet for all my effort, I have no more value to my existence, through existence, than your existence to God the Creator. We are equals! All are equal. Mortals of the realm, who make sovereign decisions, are all equal. You may have an IQ of over 200; you may have an IQ of 20. As long as you are in possession of a God presence within you, you are of equal value.

When you think of others in relationship to yourself, think in terms of equality. Think in terms of your emotional position to them, your intellectual position to them—social, economic, authority. Equality helps you derive so many other values, beliefs, and behaviors, which support a universe as large as this one.

You who have been here so long in this lifetime, what is paramount in your lives? Why would you come here to this group? Why would you seek an education? Why you would aspire to other realms of development is because of the third value, which is growth. Growth is paramount to ascension. Without growth, you will never achieve Paradise. Without growth, children do not become adults, and adults become responsible citizens in their societies. These three values are the hinge-pins of all other values that develop. You can devise many other values as well, but these three are primary to the development of human society, to a sustainable civilization, and a sustainable world.

I know that you may question that there are only three, and that you may have some equally important values as well. There is no argument to this at all. You must begin from some point, and this is where we have begun. You will find that combining these three values, and in their role-play, you will have a value system that encompasses all sustainable relationships, all sustainable communities, families, societies, and a world, a civilization. You see, these are so important.

I will now give you 5 minutes, 10 minutes? How much time would you like to think about other values, which you would like to challenge me with? You are most welcome to take less than 10 minutes to do this, if you wish. I know that some of you have spent a good deal of time working on this in your sub-teams and at home, in your writings and in the note taking you have made. So now, I will step aside. Let us set some sort of timer so that we know when at least 5 minutes have passed, and then we will check to see if you need more time. Write down the things that you hold important as values in your life, and let us see where we go with that. Remember, this is not an argumentation; this is simply an explanation, and adjustment, an understanding, a broadening of values. Let us begin the time.

* * * * * * * * *

SONDJAH: We appreciate your hearty and heartfelt discussions in the last few minutes, and if you recall the last several weeks that we have been working on values, you will see that the kernels of your work are now invested in these words, which you have recorded. You are ready to bring those forward for examination. Remember, this is not a contest. The three I have given you are primary, but there are many, many others, which are secondary or tertiary, which are equally as important for the maintenance of society.

When you become far more evolved, you will deal with and use these three values, in your mind, consistently. When you are less evolved, you will need to actually write out words that you would say, that reflects the values that you have in your heart for another person. You would need to think then, and ingrain those words into thoughts in your mind, and then later on, hold those thoughts as values in your life to guide you, and all your relationships with everyone you deal with. I would be glad to engage your questions about our positions on values that you have now. You may begin whenever you wish, and I hope to hear from everyone.

Sherille: I would value appreciation.

SONDJAH: Appreciation truly is within the realm of being an equal. You appreciate yourself, you hold yourself with value, and you hold others with equal value. The expression of appreciation is quite another matter, for it conveys your value for another person. You hold them as an equal, even perhaps as superior to yourself, though in an equal situation, you acknowledge them as an equal. Thank you. (Thank you.)

Michael: I’d like to put on the table the value of truth.

SONDJAH: Truth is recognized also, as a most essential value in social situations in society. Truth emanates from equality. Truth contributes to growth. Truth contributes to life. Truth is one of the highest values you can hold, possess and use in your social structures. If you look at the opposite, that of deceit, lies, untruth, duplicity, then you see the value of truth. Duplicity, lies and untruths set you apart as an unequal, as superior, as getting advantage on another, so it too comes from the root value of equality. Thank you.

When you speak these values, I wish you to always hold them to your heart and appreciate them, and never let them go. All of the values that you have spoken of during your discussion are incredibly valuable. They are not dismissed by myself or the Teaching Corps, with which I work. These are merely touchstones for use as a teaching aid, to assist you in discerning these higher values in your society, and particularly in your thinking. Next please.

Ann: I put forth integrity. 

SONDJAH: Integrity is paramount to the maintenance of a society, as is truth. Integrity, truth, fidelity, surety, are all related. These are consistent with wholeness, which we know as a value. Wholeness is an outcome of all these integrated values. You will see this in your lives as you live out your own integrity. It is very similar to the word untruth and to lies. When integrity is lacking, wholeness is absent. This too is a part of life and equality and growth. There can never be growth without integrity.

[This is Daniel: I feel like he’s playing a piano in me. (Laughing.) He’s really working me over.]

Susan: Sondjah, I am at the very heart of an issue of judgment and non-judgment, from a personal experience in my life. I’d like to have some clarification on it. At a time when I was in law enforcement, there came an evening when I had to shoot a person, and I stood in judgment on him, ready to kill him, and I think it was, … I know it was a voice from a guardian angel was telling me I was about to do what God should do, and it certainly changed my outlook on judging one. Can you help me?

SONDJAH: Most certainly. First of all dear one, you were an agent of your society, of your social structure. You were the point of a large population, a representative of the social values for maintaining the integrity of a community, of a city, of a town, or of some jurisdiction. Judgment is important for those individuals in law enforcement, to have clear judgment about what is right, what is wrong, what is dangerous, what is life threatening, and what is not. You had a deep, deep, deep inner experience, which challenged that, which brought you to the forefront of your consciousness, your presence with the larger consciousness of God. You had what others in the society would call a "God experience." You came face to face with the judgment of God, of God’s agents, which determine who remains and who does not, though as we will discuss eventually, you will find that it is ultimately the individual who chooses to remain in this universe, or not.

Judgment is a critical element for the maintenance of a society, yet for the individual, judgment—if it is attached to discernment—is very noble, very useful and very essential [as] to how to weigh, sift and sort the various activities in social interactions that comes your way in life. Judgment, however, estimates what is good and what is bad, what is evil and what is of the light, which is past your realm of capacity. You dear one, are a mere mortal, and one should never be placed in a position of having to decide whom to kill and whom not to. This is a most traumatizing and difficult situation. We are blessed that you choose not to act as you have been trained. You may have had repercussions from that, but we appreciate your decision, for you have shown the higher mind, the higher way of living. Had you made a decision to kill this individual, you would have certified the authority given to you by your society, and you would have locked-in that value very deeply for the rest of your life, and you would have been in greater difficulty than you are now. Does this help? (It helps a lot. Thank you, Sondjah.)

Michael: That raises another question in my mind. Earlier, …?… feedback on the idea that it is indeed possible to discern circumstances in the world we travel around in, which require intervention/action, and that action can sometimes be minor, can sometimes be life and death involved. However, it would seem also the case that we can journey to a place of spirit where it is possible to never lose sight of the Christ within the other person, even if our discernment requires for safety reasons or for other reasons, to intervene in a way that could bring harm to the other person. Is this logical or non-logical, or is this a grand rationalization? What would you say?

SONDJAH: I would say neither is it a rational estimation, which is necessary in a society as your own. You live in a complex but primitive society, and in a complex and brutal society that is primitive as well; you must take actions on occasion, in the representation of your society to maintain peace, wholeness and integrity. You have a great burden upon you. The anguish of those who have been in war, in the wars of your world, the anguish of these souls is great and it takes many decades—sometimes centuries—in the afterlife on the healing worlds, for these individuals to become whole once more.

It is wonderful for you to consider discernment. That truly is a higher value. Make sure that you understand how to use it, and use it daily, when you go about your world. You discern as a higher minded, evolved individual that your nemesis, your opponent, the person you are angry at, is really reflective of something going on in you, and this is the discernment for you to identify those areas of growth you need to attend to. If everyone would do this, your society would almost come to a halt, but it is fortunate that only a few do this at a time, as many have. Speaking of that, I wish to commend all of you for living intentionally. This too is a higher value, which you must consider. Living with intention is paramount to living with wholeness and integrity, and here we are speaking of the higher evolved individual.

But I digress. Let us speak some more about the values, which you hold dear to yourself. Are there others, which you wish to present?

Student: Sondjah, would you comment on service outside of oneself for healing and growth.

SONDJAH: Most certainly. When you have evolved, you see the need where others are not equal, where there is inequity, inequality, and therefore you become an agent of service. Not out of self-serving service, but service for the benefit of others, without regard for return to yourself. Truly this is a value, which is paramount and important, and a checkmark, a touchstone, for the evolved soul, the evolved individual. Service without regard for return is a value, an activity, which contributes to the growth of your soul. You have an opportunity always, to be of service, in small ways and large ways. It does not require money; it does not require social evidence that you have done good, but simply the fact that you have done it, without regard for even a commendation of thanks from another, knowing that you have done the right thing, in service to others. Thank you for your comment.

David: The values I would suggest are character and honor.

SONDJAH: Yes, these are in the same realm of wholeness and integrity. Honor and character are the hallmarks, the badges of the involved individual. They are those ribbons that contribute, which are seen by others as your wholeness, your integrity. You have a respect for life when you have integrity and character. Character is a demonstration, recognition by others that you have integrity, that you have wholeness, that you have respect for life, and that you discern the difference between honor and character from self-service, as opposed to service to others.

These are evidences of the values that are held dear to one who lives their life consistently. These values are connected to life and to quality and demonstration; these are evidence of behaviors, which demonstrate this individual is of higher mindedness, and recognized by his/her fellow men. Thank you.

For us, we have seen you work with this and struggle with this, weighing in your minds these three values and the values that you have presented. Now, do not disregard any of these values, which you have presented at all, for these are the hallmarks of a sustainable society. These are paramount to the existence, to be a forthcoming development of a sustainable civilization and these, my friends, must be ingrained in you. You ingrain them in yourself, you live this way, you live with intention with those values, you radiate, vibrate into the universe around you with this energy, and you permeate the space around your earth with your energy, which holds these values dear to your heart.

You feel emotional about these values and have given them energy. You are vibrating in the spiritual realm, when you do this. You hold these values dear to your heart, they are integral to your existence and the demonstration of life that you live. You make a difference in your world by living these values—not by demanding others to live that way, or even yourself as an example, which may astound you, but simply that you exist as an individual, who has integrity and holds these values dear to your heart, and you radiate this to the rest of your world. This is incredibly powerful! You are a beacon of light, a child of light, when you do this. Do not disregard this when you see it in others, but appreciate it and give thanks and appreciation to those who do. Silence is an enemy to the spread of light. Give thanks wherever it is apparent that thanksgiving is necessary and useful to our work.

Are there others? Or should we have a segue now to another topic?

Michael: Sondjah, I would like to ask a question for perhaps future consideration. (Certainly.) It comes to mind that there is perhaps an important distinction to be made between those values, or those characteristics of who we are, which are a result of the Creator, or came from the Creator, versus those characteristics that we adopt, or those behaviors that we adopt, or those values that we may adopt, which are a consequence of having been given free will, and the individuality to either be "one" or to be separate. In fact, the separation in a sense seems to define the individuality that we are all so familiar with, walking around in this realm. The distinction may be important because when we get to the notion of value, such as trust, if there were no separation, if all we could see was the God as "one," as the Christ within, then there would be no issue of trust! But because we are individuals, and we’ve been given choice—and to some degree we have chosen to be somewhat separate—trust becomes important, trust becomes something we seek, trust becomes a value of importance. My consideration for the future and feedback from you, would be to help us and perhaps find clarity by distinguishing, as I said earlier, between those values which are God given, i.e. come from the Creator, versus those which derive from our individuality in the choices we have made to be separate.

SONDJAH: Let us address this, later. Thank you.

Let us enter another topic, please. We of our Teaching Team have been waiting for the time when this Team here would be without this one to transmit and receive instructions. We have been waiting to see what would occur and what would happen in the group, how it would maintain itself and sustain itself, or whether it would wither and fall away. Two meetings without his absence are not sufficient to make that determination, but we do not wish to extend that to a larger time. It is essential and we engage you now, with training you to become transmitters/receivers, TRs, if you wish. We have assistance from Nebadonia and her children of light—you know them as angels—to assist you in this process.

We need you to determine how and where and when you would like to meet for this training. If you would like to devote half of the time that we have for our Monday evening sessions to practicing this process, we would most heartily agree to that. If you wish to meet at another time or place, we would agree to that as well. It is simply a functional necessity for the Co-Creative Design Teams to move forward, to train new TRs. They may not be as fluent as this one; they may be more fluent; they may be more heartfelt, or they may be more cerebral. We wish individuals to begin. This is like a skill. It is much like playing tennis—it may take you years to become very effective and good at it, to be competitive, and a demonstration as an example, of one who has learned how to play tennis. This is a skill we would like you to engage and to practice. Not every one of you may be interested, but maybe all of you are. I will now recede from the meeting, for you to discuss this, and then I would like to re-engage you before we part this evening. Thank you.

SONDJAH: This is Sondjah. I will step aside for one who will speak to you about what you have been discussing.

NEBADONIA: Good evening my children, this is Nebadonia. I am the Mother Spirit of this local universe, and my energy pervades this entire local universe, and all of its reaches. I am "one with you," and you are "one with me." The connection that we make depends on your intention, your fears and your ego, as you have heard. Step aside from these and allow me, allow my angels—your guardian angel—to be with you, to hover near you, to surround you, to fill you, to allow this connection to work with you and through you, to allow you to become an effective participant and channel and TR, of this wonderful work. You are each worthy of this; it is only your fears and your self-importance that will limit how capable you become. Be as humble as little children—let the words of truth come through you and you will be very pleased and astounded at what happens, in and through you. Know that you are truly loved; that you will never be harmed by us; never be urged to do something you do not want to do, and given options in every action along the way. Trust this process, knowing that you are one with it already. Know that we are here to assist you, to align your mind with Universe Mind, that the wholeness of it might be the wholeness in your mind, that you can assume that you have become whole and complete, that you are truly, as you would say, "connected," and then let this process begin.

Be humble and accepting of this, neither accepting it as making you worth more than others, or less than. Trust that you are worthy of this to come through, that your self-worth is sufficient to allow this and to engage this and to empower it. Trust this fully. Know that you are beginning the journey of "knowing," which you have not known before, of wholeness and completeness. Blessings to you.

Now I will release you and ask that you go upon your way, meditating upon these things in your heart, asking for assistance if you wish it to become more effective. Return when you are ready and allow this to happen. You will find wondrous things occurring in your life, as you undertake this journey. Good evening.

Evergreen/Conifer Co-Creative Design Team, #10

Evergreen, Colorado

Teacher: Sondjah Melchizedek

TR: Daniel Raphael

March 3, 2008

SONDJAH: Good evening, this is Sondjah. (Good evening.) It is good to be here with you once again. Let us pick up the thread now of the values that we were discussing last time. You recall that we gave you a distillation of values of life, equality and growth. These are central to designing, developing, and sustaining worlds, civilizations, nations, communities, families and individuals. This evening, we will begin the return of the pendulum to another stroke. This evening I will have you break into sub-teams once again.

We will begin developing the beliefs that emanate from these three core values. You may find it necessary to devise secondary and tertiary values; there is no problem with that. Remember that when you begin this process, there is a cascading effect, so that once you develop a value, beliefs will emanate from it. From beliefs comes expectations, and more expectations for each belief, and then from there you have the criteria of fulfillment, so that one value may cascade down to 20 expectations, and as many criteria for fulfillment. We would like you to keep this very simple to start with. We wish you to begin examining values, and develop them into beliefs and expectations, and then the criteria of fulfillment. You will probably have more than one criterion for each expectation —you may have several.

Now, we must set this into a framework: Values relating to what? You recall that we discussed the 6 paradigms of relationships. We are now going to return to those relationships. Eventually, we will have a complete set of values, beliefs, expectations, and criteria for fulfillment for each of these relationships. Do not anticipate that we will be done in 4 weeks. Anticipate that this would take perhaps a year to do this, at the rate that we are working. Two hours every week is a very small portion of time, necessary to fulfill this. Yet, you will continue to work on this during the week, and you will be writing down your contributions that you will bring back to your sub-team. It would be most advantageous to us if you would meet in groups of no more than 5, and no less than 3 individuals per sub-team. It matters not whether you all work on the same relationship paradigm, or you choose different ones. We are not so much concerned at this point of having all of the paradigms fulfilled, for in the eventuality of our work together, they all will be fulfilled.

You, who are keeping the workbook, will see now where these 6 paradigm relationships are going to be on a chart. Each one will have at least one page. You may have a foldout page and the first relationship is there, you have the values that exist in it, and you may want to add more values to it than just the 3. Then, for this paradigm, you will have the various beliefs that emanate from the values, and then you would have the expectations, and then the criteria of fulfillment. You will see right now, the diagram for this work is all full of holes; we simply have a diagram, with these names and this chart for each paradigm relationship, and these will eventually get filled out. If this team does not fulfill it, then other teams will.

You are in essence, providing a diagram for work of other local teams as they develop. There is no anticipation that this team will fulfill all the requirements, and satisfy all the homework that we will assign to you. This group of 10-12 people would have to meet every day, for 4 hours to fulfill this within the next few months. You would get the hang of it pretty quickly, and you would see that there are replications and duplications that could be filtered into other relationships—this is normal, but it would require a lot of work. What we are doing here in this group is exploratory, developmental, and experiential. We are experiencing with you the dynamics of a working, functional, practical, local Co-Creative Design Team.

It is important that you grasp that, and that your expectations are brought down so that you do not expect great outcomes promptly. This allows us to work with you and to understand your progress, your rate of growth and development and your thinking, so that we can begin applying the principles that we learn in this group, from you and with you, to other local teams throughout the world. We do not anticipate many changes in other teams in this national, cultural structure. You are all of English or Western European descent, you all speak English, you have an understanding of the technology, and the culture and the philosophy, and what is normal from your education/indoctrination in this nation. However, there are sub-groups within this nation, such as the Native American Indians and some of the other cultures and ethnic groups and racial groups that have differences. These would require additional adjustment but in our group, we are providing a grand formula in a developmental manner for all those that come within this nation, and in the Western Hemisphere and Western Europe. Language is not specifically an issue at this point.

Are there questions for now? Is the assignment clear? Is there any confusion, or have I been ambiguous?

Student: Would you read the 6 groups again?

SONDJAH: Certainly. We eventually will publish a workbook for everyone, and we will have these in hand.

There is essentially the procreative couple that comes together knowing that they will beget children.

There is the young couple that decides not to be procreative, but to engage their lives together, without children.

There is the post-children couple—this is the procreative couple at the point where the children have left the nest, and they now must reconstruct their relationship to go on into the future.

There is the relationship of the couple from between age 50 – 70, perhaps, who are engaged in the later stages of their lives, yet still very active and in need of companionship.

Then there is the elderly of 70+, for instance, and it could be younger, until the demise of one partner, where there is a need for companionship.

And Lastly, there is the individual who chooses not to be in an intimate relationship, but who is satisfied to remain single, and a single element in a society and in relationship to society and to themselves.

Other questions? Again, the most productive work that we have seen in your groups occurs within the first 5 to 10 minutes. After that it is a matter of opinionating and sharing and discussing. You get to the point quickly, you are very bright people, you are educated and you have a ready finger to write out your answers and share them. Some of you are even doing this at this point now. So, if there are no further questions, let us then break into sub-teams.

It is our preference that by now you would have established ongoing, working, sub-teams, where you would have at least 3 people, one of whom would want to be a facilitator, to make sure that each person has equal time to discuss and share, and someone who is a recorder, someone who is recording your notes, for these notes will eventually become a part of the workbook—the outline that will be published for each of you. That is another project, one that is on-going from two members, who have volunteered to do that. This will be developmental and will probably not see light of day for a few weeks, if not a few months.

Please be careful in choosing your partners, and we ask that you try to remain in these same sub-teams, in the weeks to come. We will now disperse and return before the end of the half-hour, so that we can collect your thoughts and you can share your thoughts and your ideas, and you may want to keep your notes until next week, when we once again begin this process. Let us now go to the sub-teams.

* * * * * * * * * *

Daniel: Let me interject here first, that Sondjah appears to have closed the session for now, because it’s late and we will pick this up again next week. So rather than have a recap, as it looks like the groups are really doing well, so, when you go back to your teams next time Sondjah will massage that for us, okay?

We have a guest tonight. This is the one who will be helping us … he is not a guest, but will be our regular [mentor]. He came to us while Sherille and I were in San Miguel, Mexico and said that he would be working with us in the TR training. So, we can begin that now.

ISSAH: This is Issah. I am an Archangel and I work directly with Nebadonia, the Mother Spirit of this Local Universe. Your group has specifically requested to begin your training, and this is in concert with your work in the Co-Creative Design Teams, to develop designs for sustaining your world. It is as important to assist the sustainability of the spiritual nature, or the spiritual development, and explore that in your world, during your lifetimes. You will find that the work of Sondjah and the Co-Creative Design Teams—although there is a compassionate, heart-centered orientation to that—it is still very intellectual. You have made it a cerebral enterprise, and whenever you drop into your heart energy, you will find that you will have answers, which your mind could not generate.

The training I will provide to you will assist you in that process. You will see its productivity overlap many areas of your life. This is not an easy task to begin. It is completely heart-centered; it is a process of setting aside your thinking, to use your mind as an instrument, much as the telephone company uses a wire to transmit messages to you. The wire does not care what message comes through it—it simply conveys, transports the message through itself to the receiver, which is you. I transmit through you, you receive it, and it comes through your voice.

I wish you to set aside all your writing instruments and recordings, as this will detract immensely from your capacity to enter into the space that is required for you to function as a TR. This is a completely non-linear activity. It is a multi-dimensional activity; it involves many layers within the morontial realm, which is the next evolutionary step that you will enter into, after your death. This is what you call the "afterlife," but the morontial is only one phase of the afterlife.

I have been endowed with the capacity to engage with all of you, simultaneously, and each of you individually. Your receptivity depends on you. I am here for you. I have already entered you—each of you, individually. Some of you already hear me within your minds. This is a beginning. Some of you hear me only through your ears; this is a beginning as well. This is a learned process. Rather than having this one, or another, guide you into meditation, I will do so. You will find that even through this mortal’s voice, a resonance, a capacity for frequency will be impregnated into you so that you receive the energy of my being via my "voice" on the inner levels of your mind. There is truly no explanation that we can give you so that you understand this—it simply is. My presence here is one that is energetic. It is also a presence that is true, real, and occupies a space, although it is not a 3-dimensional space. I speak to you through a mechanism, which is useful to us to speak to you, so you hear us. You have heard of angels having harps, have you not? These actually are instruments for speaking in the tongues of mankind. The angel speaks and the instrument conveys words in your language. It is the "harp" of language; it is a language harp. I do not need that here, for I am speaking through this mortal as an instrument itself. I am here for you, with you, in you, around you. My capacity as an Archangel is immense in your terms, yet it is personal, intimate, caring, compassionate and heartfelt in yourself. As we practice this over the weeks to come—and I do wish to engage this for numerous weeks into the future so that you become acquainted with my voice, with my energy, and that once we begin, you can immediately drop into this state of poise—spiritual poise—where you are balanced; you are even; you are grounded; you are at peace.

The training you have received from meditation is primary to the process of TRing. If you are dawdling and dithering in your mind about tomorrow’s activities, or the things you didn’t get done today, or some behavior of your children, or your dogs, or your neighbors—whatever it is—you cannot TR. Do not even attempt to, until you have stilled yourself. In addition, we ask that you not imbibe in any chemicals, such as alcoholic beverages, or any drugs that alter your brain chemistry.

You who are taking anti-depressants will find this to be an enjoyable activity, yet there is an insulated layer in your mind that will be difficult for you to work with. Do not absent yourself from the training because of that. Because, what will occur is that your mind is preparing to enact these instructions and these vibrations, and to be receptive to what I give you later on, when you are no longer on these medications. We neither prescribe, nor do we tell you how to use your medications. This is personal and intimate to your existence, to your balance socially and mentally and emotionally in your life. You must be responsible for your care. We are responsible for your spiritual care, and we are here. You have asked for our assistance, and we are here intimately with you.

Do not worry about your legitimate medications, as I said before. The instructions I give you will prepare you for a time in the future, when you will be most receptive and capable of conveying the messages that come to you and come through you. Be at peace with this process. There are some of you, as well, who are not on medication, who are well balanced and grounded emotionally, yet because of the brain-mind mechanism that you are endowed with, you are unable to meditate, you are unable to still your mind, and you are unable to TR. Again, do not absent yourself from this process, as this is a wonderful time for recreational meditation, if you wish to call it that. Being at peace; being at play with spirit; being at play with us. This for us is a good, fun activity.

There is nothing religious about this; this is the simple application of spiritual dynamics, spiritual principles that you can engage in your life. Be here with us; be present to support the group. Further, we do ask that you remain present. If you are unable to keep your mind still, then focus on a waterfall, a candle or something still, so that you have an acceptance that your thoughts do not roil the peace and the fabric and the texture and service of the energy of the group. Do you understand this? (Yes.) Thank you.

Know that the capacity of the human mind to TR is well known to us. Most minds can do this. It is a skill that can be practiced and embellished and improved over time, with each session of activity. We are hoping that you will do this in your meditations, devoting a portion of your time in meditation to receiving instruction from your spiritual guides, from God within you. This is most helpful to your spiritual growth. I am willing to engage any questions now, as this is quite a linear activity of question and answering. Even my monolog with you now is distracting to some of you, but I will, in the interests of moving ahead, answer two or three brief questions, at this time. (Pause.) If there are none, then let us begin.

Relax your body, as this is the edifice of your spiritual nature. If you are in tension in your body, or emotionally stressed, it is like a building that is confronted by a hurricane—it leans with the wind, it is distressed, it is not working [as] well as it is when it is at rest. Having your body at rest allows the flow of energy, the currents of energy within your body to become even. It allows the harmonic of the meditative state to flow through you, without restriction in your knees, ankles or hips, or anyplace in your body. Be at peace in your emotions. Feel peace. Reflect upon a time or a place, when you were completely at peace. Was it at the beach? A park? Were you sitting under a tree or on a bench? Or simply at home with peace of your surroundings about you? Engage this peace and feel it.

In this training, we are seeking for you to establish anchors along the way, points of reference that you can refer to, as we proceed into the TR state. Knowing how to relax your body and what that feels like, is one of them. Being at peace in your thinking, emotionally, is another. Stilling your mind is another anchor. Being open and receptive, seeing the inflow of energy from the universe come to you, is another. Some of you have the facility to visualize clearly—others of you do not. Some of you do not see a flow, but you feel within you the glow of spirit throughout your whole being, and enfolding you, as a cocoon. Wherever, however, you learn this process, apply it now.

These few moments of repose are our efforts to allow you to examine your inner state, the stillness. Have you ever come in from the cold and to a fire, and you sit there without thinking, without thought, absorbing the glow and the warmth of the fire? This is much as you will be now, without thought, absorbing, embracing the warmth, the presence of the Divine Spirit within you.

Now let us prepare your mind as a new garden. When we come to this state and proceed down this path, and you place the anchors of stillness into it, you also place the statement of intention, like a placard, a signpost along the way. Why are you here? There are many reasons, intentions for doing this. Foremost is growth: Growth to become as a reflection of the spirit within you; a template for perfection; a way of living life peacefully; a process to be open to higher wisdom for yourself, and perhaps to share that wisdom with others in this TRing process.

One of the foremost, activating activities you can engage, is to ask a question to fulfill your intention. I offer several examples of simple questions to begin with. For some of you, this is child’s play, but for others, it is the first step, the first question. The first question is: Am I alone? Ask that now in your mind. Be open and receptive to the answer. The second question is: Am I loved? You will find, as you formulate questions on your own, that the answers will come before the question mark appears to your question, for there is an anticipation in the universe by spirit to engage you in your knowingness, in your mind, before your words are formulated in your language.

Another question is: Who is with me now? Some of you will hear, "I am your Guardian Angel." Others of you will hear other names, other orders of beings. Some of you will hear, "I am the God-presence within you." Do not concern yourself with complex questions at this time. Be open to ask simple, humble, child-like questions, without anticipating the answer, but simply being open to it. Another question may be, "How long have you been with me?" Then, as you develop more complex questions, always strive to ask them in the intuitive manner. You may ask, for instance, "What in me has called you to be with me?" "What is it about my life, my existence, that engages you?" "What can I do to assist your service to my life and to my growth?"

I challenge you now to ask your question, "What are my attributes of strength?" Be open to the answers, children. Be open to receive this guidance, this information, this wisdom. Know that your Guardian and your assistants know you far better than you know yourself. They know what you are made of, and they know what you are not made of. Another question that may seem challenging or difficult to you is: "What are my greatest deficits? What are my greatest needs for growth?" Again, you might ask, "What is it that I can do to assist you to help me grow?" Then reflecting upon your intentions, you will see that your questions have an orientation.

As new TRs, you are in the growth mode. Being open to TR and submitting yourself to this training is a fast track to your spiritual growth. It requires that you remain completely in the moment, in this "now," without any consciousness of your presence in the future, or the past—simply now. And even past being in the now, is simply "to be," without thought of the now—just being—whole, present, open for dialog with spirit. The beginning of TRing begins with acceptance that this can happen: Acceptance that you are worthy of receiving this presence; worthy of conveying the wisdom, insights that come through you; that you are capable, and that you are accepted by God, by me, and by the spirits of light out in the universe to do this. We do not care about your past—that is an issue for other spiritual bodies; we are concerned now about the present, for we know that when we engage you, and you engage us now, the future is taken care of.

Now I will offer you a few minutes to engage your conversation within yourself, with your spiritual being, with whom you have an intimate relationship. (Long pause.) Take a few more moments to close your conversation. As your spiritual guide to your inner journey, you will find that this experience relaxes you in dimensions in your whole life. You will find that when you return to your daily activities there may be a dissonance, a disharmony, a lack of synchronicity, a lack of harmony, a vibration of unsettledness. You can return to these moments anytime you wish—simply apply yourself to these moments, revisiting your anchors to assist you to engage the stillness and this peaceful place.

We will continue this training into the future. It will be several weeks before we begin to ask you to demonstrate what you have heard. We will do this aloud, with your eyes open and conscious of each other. It will be a reporting of what you have heard. As you are all beings of light, there is equality among all of you. There is no chastisement, no guilt, and no condemnation in any of this activity, about any of your behaviors in the past, or your behaviors now. This is all accepting, and you will find receptivity for your reporting in the days ahead. Now I embrace you individually. I am embracing you all. You oftentimes come together in a group hug. Know that I have my "wings" around all of you at this time. I bless you; I have touched you; I have been with you deeply in your minds. This is not an invasion, which you did not accept, but one that you invited. I look forward to your return to my presence, next week. Good night.
