JarEl - We Are on a Long Journey to the Same Place - Aug 06, 2007 - Arcadia, CAArcadia, California, U.S.A. PR Monday, August 6, 2007, 8:00 pmTeachers: JarElTR: George Benavides
Prayer: Larry: Dear Father thank you for this gathering and thank you for all of the blessings that you have bestowed on each one of us. Help us to be good stewards of these blessings. Thank you so very much for the Urantia Book and the Teaching Mission and all our unseen celestial beings that are here tonight, we welcome them. We love you Father. In Christ Michael's name, Amen.
JarEl: TR, George. Good evening. It is I, your Teacher JarEl. It is good to be back once again. I thoroughly enjoy coming to these meetings where you all strive for higher meanings and higher learning. I do hope that I can in some way illuminate you and strengthen you so that you continue in this journey, a journey that we all are on, every single one of us. We are all journeying to the same place. We all have the same destiny. We all are united in this effort. Some of us have more experience on this path and we are comforted to see many of you take on this path. We are glad to see you make those choices in your lives that lead you to this path towards God. And it is exciting when you attempt to contact us for help and guidance. We are more than willing to help, we are more than willing to assist you in every way possible. And it is a long journey. So the more help you can receive, the better.
You are all children who have just started on this path. Your feet have yet to be worn out. There are hardly any signs of wear and tear. But believe me, you will show those signs soon enough. So much of this is new to you, much of this journey is unknown. And what you do know you know by shared experience with one another, by the commonality that you have with your brothers and sisters and the history of your planet.
But you know none of the history of the worlds of Morontia, nor the worlds of the Finaliters. And you have very little knowledge of the one billion perfected planets. You still have much time to learn all that. But what you have learned has taken you to this point in your life and it has brought you to these decisions and these choices. The path to God does not become easier over time, it does not become simpler either. The path to God only becomes harder, more complicated and more challenging each day, but in the end it is all worth it. In the end, when you reach the presence of God, you understand it all.
So, for us to see this undertaking on your behalf, is very exciting. For you know very little of what you are embarking upon, yet you have the courage to step forward and take on this challenge no matter what consequences may come. We all applaud you for making this brave choice in your lives, to follow something you have absolutely no proof of, yet you believe with all of your heart. Your challenges have just begun, there are still more to come, more tragedy to overcome.
But be comforted that all of this is to allow you to grow and mature. With your foresight you can understand that all of these vicissitudes are for your benefit and the benefit of those you love. If you did not have those challenges in your life, you would hardly be the person you are today. So it is important that you continue to strive forward, do not give up on any challenge that may come. For God is there to give you strength and He has in his command all the angels and all the spiritual forces at His disposal to help you in whatever way possible.
Every time that I show up here you have questions for me. But today I would like to ask you a question. What is it that you are looking for? What is it that your life needs?
Rob: Do you want an answer right now?
JarEl: TR, George. You may chose to answer out loud, or in your hearts, either way.
Rob: JarEl, speaking for myself, I know that I would like to know how I, personally, can contribute to create the heaven on earth that Christ Michael spoke about. For I know that we are going through an evolutionary metamorphosis on this planet and in my own way, how I can contribute to making that reality more of a possibility in my time, I think that's my personal need or question.
JarEl: TR, George. Thank you. Does anyone else want to share?
Michael: To add to what Rob said, I feel the same way, as though I want to contribute something to help. And I also, for myself, want to better myself, to better how I communicate with people, how I interact with people, how I love people; my patience, my tolerance, I just want to keep improving. Because I've gotten the notion from a lot of the Teaching Mission that this self improvement is part of the key to improving society as a whole and I just want to keep bettering myself each day. I mean to not give up and to keep stepping forward no matter how small a step.
JarEl: TR, George. Thank you.
Donna: As for myself, I would like to contribute as much as I can towards the evolution of the planet towards Light and Life in whichever ways I feel nudged by my Adjuster to do so. And, personally, I would like to come to the end of my days on this planet feeling that I have lived my life well; that I have lived a full life and experienced as much as the Heavenly Father has intended for me to experience in this earth life. And that also includes a continuing learning and self-improvement, which Michael has spoken of.
JarEl: TR, George. Thank you for sharing.
Stella: Well, as for me, I'd like to have some peace in my old age so I could get my books out to the public. And that I would be free of the same challenges that have dogged my whole life, which I do not know, nor have the wisdom and the knowledge to free myself from. So those are my two things; peace and the ability to get my books out to the public and the freedom to do it.
JarEl: TR, George. Thank you. So far, what I have heard, there is a need to help one another. There is a need to communicate and there is a need to reach out. There is also a need to be free from the challenges of life. On that aspect, I am afraid you are at a loss, for you always will have challenges.
Stella: Is there any rest in between them?
JarEl: TR, George. You do have periods of rest. The universe is not cruel. It allows you to take a breather. But, know when that time is up. Know when you have to move on and that you have to continue to struggle. Do not get too comfortable in that rest period. And that goes for all of you.
There will be times in your lives when everything seems perfect and that your life cannot get any better. But those are just periods of rest for you, for challenges are just around the corner, challenges that will put a lot of stress on you. And if these challenges are not faced completely, then they will just stack up on you until you finally decide to meet them face to face.
Now as for many of your wishes to reach your fellow human beings and perhaps to help this world feel better, one of you had it right. You do have to improve yourself in order to make this possible. You do have to put that work into your own life to better yourself, to bring this person that is within you out into the world so that it matures and grows in time. Once this person has evolved, then are you in a better position to help the world. Yes, you can help the world now, as you are, but you are limited by who you are. You must learn to face those inner battles that you constantly ignore and grow as a citizen, as a human being and as a child of God. When you have matured emotionally, you can better deal with the challenges that face you everyday and you can better deal with those people who surround you, those people that you have intimate relationships with. In essence you will be a more adorable person once you have learned to deal with these inner demons that harm you.
You all are a select type, you all have chosen to take on this task of following God, following the light. Many of you have already begun to work on yourselves. It is only a matter of time before you truly show the fruits of your labor. Many of you now are at your last leg of this life and have already received much of the fruits. Believe me, when you leave you will surely leave a mark and even though you may not see it now in this world, you will see it hence, you will see the impression that you have given this world.
I understand how many of you feel insignificant at times, helpless, incapable of helping this world reach its potential. But do not be distraught, for you are actually helping, you are truly changing this world for the better. And it takes many of you to do this, one person cannot do it all. But together you can change this planet. And little by little, this change is occurring. And even though you don't see it, even though it is not visibly apparent, in your hearts you feel it and you sense it. Eventually, when you have reached those levels of spirituality that can only be attained on the Morontia level, you will see the clear markings of your path that was left behind on this world.
There is more to this world than you know. There are many more different dimensions that exist all around, different levels of existence that you are not aware of. And when you walk in this world, you leave more than just footprints. It is difficult to try to explain to you the exact impact that you have. But believe me, it is based on many different levels of existence. And when you finally do become aware of all the different levels that existed here on this planet, you will see those markings more apparent. So continue to strive forward in believing that what you are doing is good, because it is working and you are being good and you are affecting this world. Do not doubt yourself and do not doubt your friends. But, most of all, do not doubt God's plan. You are all here for a reason and you must find your own reason to exist. Now, before I leave, are there any questions here left?
Norman: Yes JarEl. First I would like to make the statement that I am grateful for the deep desire and zeal to bring others into the fold. And I thank you for this group for what it has brought as a family to us all. And I thank the Father for the ones out there who are reaching out to others. I do then have a question and that is about the date coming up, 8-08-08, about 369 days from today, which is the opening of the Olympics, and again I ask if it is timely to suggest that 50 couples go to Beijing and meet perhaps at the Pato Banton concert that we are working on? The idea is that we would meet, take in some Olympic things, and meet with people along the way. Then each couple would be paired with one other city before they would come back to the United States. And we would use the English Urantia Books (since we've been slothful in our duties to translate the UB into Chinese by now). But we could use the English book that we've got and all the other expressions we have for God's glory. What say you JarEl?
JarEl: TR, George. Well, my friend Norman, all things are possible. Nothing is impossible. And these goals that you set for yourself are certainly possible. It is just a matter of whether there is enough effort put behind it. You find the effort, you find the strength, it is in you and it is in your friends and those that support you. It is just a matter of coordinating and figuring things out. You have set yourself many goals my friend, many that are very ambitious; some you will accomplish and some you have fallen short. But you will continue to move forward always and you will continue to meet your goals for it is in you to accomplish them. So again I say to you, nothing is impossible.
With that I will leave you. Goodnight.
All: Goodnight JarEl
