Prayer: Divine Parents, among all the things we have to be grateful for in this life, this notion of growing a soul brings with it such gratitude. The enormity and  the scope of this project is so vast that we most certainly cannot comprehend the implications but we can from time to time look back over our shoulder and appreciate that growth has occurred and distance has been covered. When we do this it brings us such gratitude for the process, for the manner in which all this takes place, slowly and effectively. We welcome you in our efforts to pursue this soul growth, to be with us in this process, to join us by holding our hand so to speak in this process because you are well aware that it is our desire to do this and to pursue this goal of growing our soul. We have trust and faith that you bring us all that we need to fulfill this desire of our hearts which I believe is the desire of your heart as well. So help us to make this so, in no hurry with no haste but rather to help us enjoy the sweetness of this accumulation of soul growth and help us to share it with you and to present it as our gift to the First Source and Center as we so devotedly attain and accumulate this growth. Let it be so. Thank you.

Elyon: Greetings once again, it is your friend Elyon here to be with you to foster more discussion and subsequent understanding of this whole notion that you are here to grow that eternal aspect of yourself that we are referring to as the soul. You all, having lived a mortal life are well aware of the nature of growth on your world where everything has a beginning point and from that beginning point which appears almost insignificant at times there occurs great transformation. The tiny seed may sprout at first just two leaves to show that it is willing to participate in the whole growth opportunity and if conditions are right and permit and there is the inherent desire within to pursue growth, then what begins as a small seedling will eventually in time turn into the mighty oak tree.

When it is young there is much that can impact the survival of this tree. It has all the potential to be the great oak but it is contained within the small seedling and it must necessarily navigate many episodes in its existence in order to survive the rains, the snows, the hail, the drought and all other conditions imposed upon it but if there is a certain determination and a certain condition then you are able even in your short lifetimes to witness this grand set of transformation that occurs as the seedling turns into a  young tree, season after season, cycle after cycle gains to it more of itself and becomes more of a tree that was inherent in the seedling.

After many seasons you grow to witness that the tree is very strong and the temporary circumstances of life no longer have the impact that they once had on the little tree. The snows are well held up by the strong branches, the rains may come and go but the roots run so deep so as not to impact greatly the great tree. This growing of the self gains more and more to itself until there is a real and true strength to be found. Likewise do you go about this very same process of transformation and re-transformation over and over again. Each season that passes or season that goes by brings to you deeper roots and stronger limbs and you are able to withstand the storms of life with more certainty and security.

This life here on this world is but your first example of experiencing these cycles of growth which may not be all that apparent to you from where you stand at any moment; the oak tree may not remember being the seedling. It is only with the benefit of your memory, your pictures, your writings that you can with any sense of accuracy look back on your growth perhaps side by side standing next to the oak tree to realize that you both have grown, that you both have achieved a certain mastery over this life that you have developed a sturdy base and a strong mechanism in your life for navigating your way through the temporary storms that pass. You have even become wise enough to understand that all storms do pass and that you need just stand firm and allow this to happen.

This is an example of soul growth. You are no longer gripped with fear or doubt or uncertainty about your existence, your purpose, the circumstances around your life which may impose an impact upon you because your wisdom that you have accumulated, your firm base, gives you the strength and the certainty to withstand these temporal assaults with complete conviction and security as to your position, your purpose, your role in this ever changing, ever growing paradigm you find yourself in.

But like the growth of the great tree, time is required for you to reach this level. It is not possible for the seedling in one season to be the great tree. Many seasons are required, many experiences are gathered before you can fully bloom and develop into the potential that is within you even as you are born a babe in this realm. Unlike the great tree which can be admired for having stood fast against the many temporal circumstances, your destiny is different. You are destined to go well beyond the scope of this material world and take with you this soul that you have grown in this life only to be replanted into the next life so that it may be grown further and further. In fact this seedling that is you is eternal and shall be transplanted innumerable times into new and different environments but it will never cease to grow. Your internal desire to pursue growth is the greatest factor in the health and well being of this soul that you are nurturing.

You have all heard of the condition and seen it in your lives where certain growing things exhibit what is called a failure to thrive and there appears to be no will within to go forward and put the effort necessary into growth and you may attempt to fertilize or nurture or support these cases where you detect there is a failure to thrive but in the end it is an internal component which is either present or it is not. The same is true with your spiritual soul growth. All of you contain a great drive to grow and to foster this growth that you are seeking, carefully nurturing your seedling along the way to provide the most conducive environment and characteristics necessary and so you may be well assured that as you move forward from this back yard of experience into your next set of experiences and you desire to transplant your seedling and continue its growth that it will indeed respond to your efforts and growth will most certainly be part of its future.

If there are any who desire not the ways of spiritual growth, then they will not have much of a seedling to go with them into the next fertile yard to be planted and this is entirely within the scope of potential for any individual to decide for themselves. If they love not the way of spirit and the way of spiritual growth they are not required to participate. There will be then this failure to survive and they will be allowed to nurture or not their individual soul seedling. But all those who desire the way of spirit and the growth that this way brings, are assured that their seedling will one day grow into the mighty tree as even now your roots are spreading deep and your foundations are becoming quite firm and stable.

I hope this metaphor helps to provide some imagery for this topic of soul growth. As Monjoronson has stated, it is your primary objective in this life, all else that you do or attempt to do hinges on your success at this effort for in order to be useful as a seedling or even a young tree, you must be well nourished, well cared for so that you are strong and can provide the shade that you would offer as service to others because you have tended to the needs of the self and fostered this soul growth with intention.

Thank you for the opportunity to join you in this mornings discussion. I bid you all farewell.

Monjoronson: I would greet you as well, I am Monjoronson here to return Elyons serve and make my serve to attempt to alleviate any concerns that are encountered in this process of growing the individual soul. Regarding the idea I witness in participants from time to time that somehow or another they may not be engaged properly in this pursuit of soul growth or that they may be somehow doing it wrong or inappropriately, I would like to dispel these notions that this process can be done incorrectly for there are innumerable ways to foster this process and always, every way will be utilized for the greatest benefit of all.

Some are concerned that they could make a misstep in this journey and perhaps tangent off away from the main path but I am here to assure you that all tangent paths lead as well to the destination of your desire. There are of course well worn paths that may be observed and followed by those individuals who deem them appropriate and right. There are writings which may help in this regard, there are teachers which may be very useful in pointing out the way and in showing the signposts but in the final analysis, every spiritual seeker must take their own steps in what is in essence their own direction and on their own path.

Therefore it may be easy for one who has blazed a certain new trail to wonder if they are on some wild tangent and becoming separated from the way you are supposed to grow your own soul, in fact these adventurers who go out and blaze new trails in the direction of spiritual growth are quite necessary and valuable to expand the options available and harvest new and unknown experiences and ways in which to accomplish the same goal. As the Master said when He was with His apostles, "It is not desired that all think alike or act alike, do alike or be alike, it is preferred that all have their own unique experiences and all are valid and cherished by the Creator who has developed all options to be chosen."

So I invite you, especially all of you who may come in contact with this material, to relieve yourselves of any thoughts that you could somehow do this journey incorrectly for that is not an option to one who is pursuing spiritual growth and attaining this soul development. You will all have different paths, you will all have different rates of traveling down these paths and all of this is as it should be. Fear not that you can be derailed or behind or somehow inappropriate if it is your desire to move forward with your personal ascension career.

No step is a misstep. Every step is an action which brings with it its own results and rewards and as you have heard the statement: "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step." If you simply focus on one step and then the next step and the step after you will arrive at your destination of a thousand mile journey but if you consider the entire scope of the project it may be too much to consider that you could accomplish it or that every step would be totally well placed. But know that you are destined to arrive at your "destination of a thousand miles" by simply occupying yourself with the step of the moment, the step of the hour, the steps taken during the day and rest in assurance and comfort that all these have been steps in the right direction, in the desires of your hearts and the longing of your soul.

Be at peace with having taken your step of the moment or your steps of the day. They are as critical to your journey as any other and necessary to tomorrows steps. So make every attempt to be not overwhelmed by the scope and magnitude of all that is before you but simply focus on the moment, the step, the action, the deed, the thought, the word, all these are what is critical at the juncture you are in. The rest will have to come as it will but it will hinge on what you do in this moment, with this next step, with this next decision. But all will be well, in fact all is well and your efforts most certainly are rewarded.

So knowing this is the case, every step should be a cause for joy and celebration because each step is part of this grand journey and so each step is a certain accomplishment towards your ultimate goal and destination and each step is absolutely required to bring you to a place where you can take the next one. These steps happen so slowly that you don't necessarily realize that distance has been covered until you gaze back over your shoulder and realize there have been a number of steps taken, many of which have been with your awareness and many of which have not been, but simply natural steps for you to take. But all of these steps have brought you to the place you are now where you can gaze back in appreciation over having traveled some distance.

And so it is with your spiritual growth throughout your entire ascension career, it is a gradual morphing and many times you will not realize in the moment of taking the step that you are making progress and covering ground until a few more steps have been taken and you can more easily see the distance between where you were and where you now stand. Trust in the process and in yourselves as part of the process and let the journey be one filled with joy because you bring awareness to it and this awareness allows you to celebrate each step as significant, some as monumental in your desire to cover the distance.

Thank you all very much for extending this platform to me today. I always treasure this opportunity that you provide and like you I desire to make every step count and you bring me such assurance every time we meet as I witness you embrace these truths and incorporate them into your next few steps. That is how I know we are covering distance, that is also how you know we are covering distance. Looking forward to traveling down the trail with you even further. I now bid you all have a good week and farewell.

Light: Greetings dear friends, I accept the invitation provided to join you briefly as well, I am Light. I would offer one more set of imagery to enlighten your discussion. You have an expression on this world when you are undergoing a circumstance or a trial or tribulation that at some point you recognize there is a light at the end of the tunnel or the pursuit or the journey. The recognition that this light is there spurs you on with the realization that you can accomplish  your task or your mission because you can see the goal and you will eventually make it to the light and see through the darkness for you can foretaste it in time having glimpsed it at the end of the tunnel.

Once glimpsed there is the exhilaration of knowing that it is there and that you can make it as well as the dissolution of doubt and fear and uncertainty that you are merely grinding away in the dark and uncertain as to how much further you have to go. To those who are spirit born, they all have a light at the end of their tunnel, they all can see that they are merely traveling through this temporary state of darkness and are destined to emerge into the light of awareness so they have more conviction and more stamina to engage the process knowing and depending in faith that they are progressing towards this light at the end.

So it is with all of you. I witness that the struggles of this material mortal world are becoming less and less oppressive on you because of your realization that there is a light at the end of your tunnel and it brings you strength and gives you the conviction to progress forward through the darkness in certainty that  you are making progress even though it may be very difficult to discern in the darkened tunnel. However you know you are taking steps because you are applying the action and with intention, taking step after step and although these steps may be in darkness and you may be uncertain that they have moved you, you still act in faith that each step is needed to bring you to the light at the end of the tunnel.

You all witness that as you take these steps you grow closer and closer yet the distance cannot be measured through the tunnel, it is too dark to see. You merely focus on the light at the end and eventually, step by step passes and you are growing closer and closer to emerging in the light. Your destination draws nearer and nearer with each step and yet if you were to turn back and look over your shoulder it may be impossible for you to notice that you have traversed some great distance within this tunnel unless perchance this tunnel enables you to see light at both ends and then you can realize that you have left one end and have significantly moved through towards the other end.

But this whole act of taking the next step and proceeding forward eventually yields you the results you desire and you emerge from the darkness into the light. Peering beck into the darkness of the tunnel you realize that you have just traversed through the darkness of materialism and entered into the light of spiritual awareness and somehow the darkness does not seem as frightening, as uncertain and as unknown for you have just traversed it step by step even though you are unable to fully grasp what it was you were traversing. Nevertheless you have crossed it of your own accord and by your own efforts and you have gained the goal of emerging into the light.

I hope this imagery helps you put some perspective into the common phrase, there is a light at the end of your tunnel. I am always honored to be able to come among you in this way and demonstrate to you that we are always here along with you although many steps may seem as though they are taken completely individually and that you are alone somehow running this race. You are never truly alone. There are always those who are ever in attention and even available to participate with you should you so desire.

Thank you for this opportunity and I look forward to being with you again. I leave you now and bid you all have a very productive week in bringing awareness into all the steps that you are taking and realizing that distance is being covered by each and everyone in the direction of your hearts desire. Thank you all and goodbye.
