- Our authority to speak the truth
Malvantra (Jonathan TR): Greetings, this is Malvantra. You are aware that you are members, in reality relations, in the cosmic family. You are kept in the loving care of the Father of all beings, the Mother of all beings, the spirit Source of all souls. As you grow you have begun to benefit from the wisdom attained; it has given you more power in the application of spirit truth and goodness and beauty, for you discern a more clear orientation of truth and goodness as it applies to the many events you enter into in your life. Each growth cycle yields a refinement of previously attained insight and fosters the development of greater and broader insight. Every step in your ascent your faith is deepened, your confidence is strengthened, and you are even more certain that any uncertainty that comes before you will yield benefit. Fear subsides and a curious delight replaces it, for with the overcare of the divine spirit you are assured of your ability to see clearly, to learn rightly, and to grow wisely. There is another element to your personal growth in the watchcare of spirit, and that is your collective congregation. Each of you walks a different trail than another, and the result is differing perspectives and experiences yielding a coloration to wisdom that is a shade different from your fellows. It is in your commingling of your understanding and your insights that you broaden even further your cosmic perspective, your sensitivity to truth. It is this brotherhood that expands the individual. Father is at one end of your being, your brothers and sisters at the other. These two contribute to your growth, to your well-being. If it were that all personalities were as omniscient as the Almighty, there would be no benefit from fellowship. While Father resides within as that very omniscient being, the miracle of time and space is the multiple individualities who are growing from ignorance to enlightenment. At every station in the ascent all others act as completors, those who contribute to you where you lack in your status. This joining together is the Father's will. It is the purpose of Supremacy. It is also your safety net, for it provides balance, and it is also your cheering section, for it encourages you to proceed. I am grateful to once again be among you to incircuit in common awareness.
Elyon (Mark): Greetings, this is Elyon. I consider myself to be a personal friend of each of you who hears my words this day. As your personal friend I would take this opportunity to speak to you directly about what I know to be the concerns of your hearts, as I have heard the desires of your hearts to know what more clearly is your role and function in service as you proceed. I would use this timely analogy of the parent/child relationship. As the child is quite young and immature and inexperienced they rely almost completely on the truth that they come to know through the avenues of their parent's direction. When in doubt the child will frequently look to the parent for affirmation or confirmation that what they are saying or believing is in fact accurate and true. As the child develops and gains personal experience less and less do they look to the parent for affirmation of each individual aspect of their understanding, as more and more they are self assured of the correctness of their understanding. As time goes on and with the benefit of experience eventually the child will see all that the parent has taught them as their own information, as their own wisdom, having been accumulated over some period of time and with great reassurance all along that they are on the right track, that the answers they provide are appropriate and true, right and correct. To extend that analogy to where you are this day and such a relationship, you have had the benefit of some duration of time around those loving ministers of spiritual influence such as myself who have attempted in every way to guide your learning process of discovery, to provide you with your own necessary firsthand experience of spiritual truths and the nature of spiritual reality. You, as eager students, have embraced these teachings for some period of time. In the beginning stages while you may have been tentative and not wholly certain of the depths of all the wisdom you were to embrace, you looked to us frequently for reassurance and confirmation that indeed you were about this process properly. You were able to recite back to us and internalize the lessons we had delivered. Therefore we were able to build upon those lessons with another lesson which could not have been delivered without your effort at embracing these steps along the way. At some point the student, the child, the young spirit set out on this journey, must become aware of the wisdom and knowledge that has been gained as a result of their efforts and will assume the authority of one who knows. At that point no longer does the student feel it necessary to constantly to re- engage the teacher for affirmation, as they have developed this sense of self security that what they do know they in fact do know. It is as though you prepare a student for a spelling bee by working with them, going over and over the options that may confront them, the realities that they must function within.
Then when the bell rings and the time is right they and they alone must stand and with certainty proclaim what they know. This brings with it the authority to speak as one who is versed in this material, as one who knows. I give you today that each one of you is a student who has beautifully and faithfully performed the duties of the student and learned the material that has been presented and is now fully capable of speaking with authority about that which you know.
It is no longer necessary for you to look to the source of your inspiration and knowledge about these affairs except to proceed on your path of higher education. Rather is it part of your position that you have acquired, for you to speak with authority. I give you the fact that the text that you are all familiar with, The Urantia Book, is truly a gift to your world and meant for all people on this planet. But your own experience with that revelation tells you that not all people are prepared to accept the magnitude of that gift. There are many who seek the information that is contained in that gift, but to offer them the entire curriculum at one opportunity would prove unfruitful, whereas to offer them bits and pieces contained within that revelation to whet their appetites and draw them to curiously explore on their own would prove greatly fruitful. You are developing the wisdom of instructors, of purveyors of this information, to know when the appropriate time is to offer so much of the curriculum that you have had the benefit of contact with in your search. You are the ones who are to be seen by the human eyes. When you speak with authority about matters of spirit, it is you that they will see. It is you who will indeed manifest the traits and characteristics you refer to. Therefore you must come from yourselves.
You must be bold about the authority that you have attained and been granted by no less than Michael, Machiventa, and others in charge of this mission who have repeatedly offered you the authority so that you would become strong enough to stand on your own and manifest the truths that you have come to know. When others look at you they see you and you only; they see nothing behind you. They may indeed grow curious and want to know where you have learned such matters of spiritual depth. It may become right and appropriate for you to guide them into deeper levels of understanding by exposure to many avenues that you have come across in your spiritual path, but yours is the material plane. It will not do to refer to unseen others for your authority. It must come from within. So, my question to you all today is, what is it that you would embrace as providing you with the necessary authority to speak the truth? We as teachers have continually offered our praise for your accomplishments and advances. We have continually encouraged you to own that which you know and to speak that truth from your hearts. That is as simple as it is. It is not required that you back up your statements of wisdom with footnotes or with other sources of authority. Rather should it be your glory to stand and speak that which you know to be true, alone and of yourself. Therein is the true glory in this kingdom, to be a strong pillar of truth, to be the guiding light and do that which the soul desires. I will continue to remain here for you as individuals, my cherished students.
As you continue your higher education I will be only thrilled to accompany you and support you and foster your development as far as you would take it. In the end you must, as the teacher, insist the student go forward, stand in front of the class, and recite that that you know. When asked how to spell a word, it is incumbent upon you to speak that which you know. When asked the nature of spiritual reality, speak your firsthand experience with spiritual reality. Don't wade into territory of supposition or unknown arenas to you, rather stick to what you know. If you stick to the truth that you know, you cannot give an incorrect response. It is simply not possible.
Your response will be accurate and true according to the limits of your understanding, and that, the witnessing of the truth, is all that can be asked of a mortal of your realm. It is extremely simple and on the other hand difficult for many to take that step to assume the mantle of authority, to speak the truth about things unseen and to be the one to act in wisdom. I hope this gentle nudge helps you to take the step with certainty that I believe in you, Michael believes in you, the entire scheme of the Correcting Time is about you, not me, not others behind the scene, but you are where the rubber meets the road. You are the face that will be seen, the voice that will be heard, and it is you who will make the difference. I hope these words will provide you with encouragement and with strength. Please take them along with my love. I leave you today. Ginny: I am blown away! How did you know I've been thinking about this? Thank you for addressing those issues.
