RAYSON: Good afternoon. This is Rayson. (Group welcome.) It is a pleasure to be here once again with you. Today we have a -- you might call this a "momentous occasion." We have a guest who will present the issues today, and we welcome Gabriel among you.

GABRIEL: This is Gabriel. Welcome my friends, to a new day, a new era in the journey of your planet into The Days of Light and Life, the civilizations of your people into light. I am here in the presence of Christ Michael and Nebadonia, the Council of Twenty-Four, and Machiventa Melchizedek. I speak with the authority of our Sovereign Creator, Christ Michael of Nebadon. This pronouncement today is to inaugurate the Second Revelatory Commission for the enhancement, [the] development of the documents known as the Urantia Papers. The Second Revelatory Commission will be adjunctive to the offices of Machiventa Melchizedek until the offices of Monjoronson are open and operational. We foresee this process as a decades-long process that will be co-creatively developed and brought into existence through the assistance of mortals, midwayers, Melchizedeks, and those who have higher authority, knowledge, and awareness.

Some of you may be wondering -- [or] have wondered already -- why developments are proceeding so rapidly on Urantia. And my friends, let me say that it is a natural development, that we are not rushing this, but these developments are logical and reasonable, considering the adjudication has taken place, the circuits on your planet have been renewed and restored -- almost completely -- that Machiventa Melchizedek has been made Sovereign Planetary Prince of Urantia, that Monjoronson will be appearing on your planet sometime in the future, the Urantia Papers have been published for over fifty years, the Correcting Time is in place and the Teaching Mission has now been well initiated. It is rational, reasonable, and timely to now develop the papers that will presage the arrival of Monjoronson among you, and which will be completed with his assistance.

Machiventa Melchizedek will be the presiding officer of the Second Revelatory Commission, until such time as Monjoronson is established and in place and will then proceed with the Revelation in a more organized and speedy fashion than we anticipate will occur now. Much has already been prepared and given and shared with you, which are now kept in the archives. [Ed. Note: www.tmarchives.com] There are materials within the archives that will be useful for the expansion of the "Papers," as you call them. These will be preliminary; these will be made as submissions to the Commission. There will also be of necessity, a joint committee or body of mortals and midwayers and Melchizedeks working together to devise questions that will need to be answered and which will flesh out in the "Papers" and be presented as submissions to the Commission.

These texts will not be a replacement for the Urantia Book -- the Urantia Book is a fait accompli, it is complete, it is whole, it is existent, it is well known, it is established and now it is being shared as common written material, without limitation. These new papers will be separate, stand on their own right and will provide answers to questions regarding the original Urantia Book text, which are not provided through it. In addition, parts of the new text will provide coordinating information about the development of an evolution to The Days of Light and Life, under the reign of Monjoronson, your Magisterial Son.

This announcement, and the forthcoming development of the second series of Urantia Papers, is not meant, intended, or have an interest in being a threat to the established organizations that support the Urantia Book or dependant upon that text. You will find, just as the Teaching Mission was a personal revelation to the teachings of The Urantia Book, that this will be further enhancement of the personal appeal and approach, and revelation in written form. It will make more understandable these traumatic times on
your planet, and the era that is forthcoming and the era after that.

As in all developments with the Correcting Time, this is not time dependant, but developmentally dependant upon what occurs that support the next step, the next development that needs to come into being and be in place. In that regard, please remember that the arrival in a personal form of Monjoronson is also developmentally dependent -- it is not time dependant. You will see that sometimes the developments on your planet retard the approach and arrival of Monjoronson, as it will affect the full and
complete development of the second text. On the other hand, there will be developments that enhance and augment the timely approach of the text and Monjoronson sooner than later.

In similar regard to those of the past, these developments will also need to be validated by capable TR's and those who are in meditation with Christ Michael and their Thought Adjuster. As this project will be in process for many years, even decades perhaps, this announcement does not anticipate a speedy organization or development of those bodies, but is meant to be shared with you at this time so that there it becomes common knowledge, common awareness and a coming together of common interests, common mind, oneness of thinking, oneness of mind in these projects. Then the  questioning and the body of writings may begin.

Questions that you have concerning this Second Revelatory Commission and its work, should be directed to Machiventa, who will have a subordinate staff to assist in these projects. Do not be afraid to speak directly with Christ Michael or Machiventa, as they will be most easily open to you to discuss this project. We wish you well. We among you today salute you, we bow to you, we appreciate your assistance, your willing participation, your eager anticipation of being a closer part on a morontial level within your mortal experience with these activities. Good day. (Group: Thank you, Gabriel.)

Student: Is there anyone else that's willing to talk to us? (Short pause.)

RAYSON: This is Rayson. Quite a pronouncement, yes? (Indeed! Exciting!)

Student: Thank you for allowing us to be a part of this.

RAYSON: Well, it is not a matter of allowance, but encouragement for you to decide and [to] examine your intents to participate in this. We encourage you to participate. You are not only allowed but permitted, encouraged, and authorized to participate. Your intentions will determine where you work within this structure.

Student: Do you think this will also begin with something similar to the "sleeping subject," as with the original Urantia Papers?

RAYSON: There will be parallels with that, as this will be a simultaneous activity throughout the world through capable TR's who work with a body of mortals and this body works with their teachers and Melchizedeks to ask appropriate questions. The answers will be forthcoming through members of the Revelatory Commission and their subordinates. Yes, it is a parallel to the "sleeping subject," but only to the extent that the TR's are involved. There will not be any one individual who will be a primary candidate, as we have found through prior work before the Teaching Mission that too often individuals were quite incapable of removing their ego from this activity. Further, observers often held the transmitting subject in adulation and admiration and praising them as gurus. This is most dangerous. We will use many TR's who are open and capable and validate the teachings across the globe. (Thank you.) You are most welcome.

Student: Is there any one group that will be responsible for publishing these new papers, such as the Urantia Foundation?

RAYSON: These questions regarding organizations must wait for the passage of many months, if not years, for an authorized organizing body to come into existence. We anticipate a similar or parallel activity as occurred with the archives, that there will be individuals who feel highly committed and dedicated to this activity, who will come forth and begin this activity. We would hope that there would be globally, regional language-based committees or organizations or bodies -- such as this body here -- throughout the world that would make contributions in their language to this effort.

As this announcement is new, individuals will begin to think about this and the mindedness of this project will be shared globally as an insight, an awareness, an "Ah-Ha," of participation. One-mind activities or insights are common throughout your world, as you know, whether they are scientific discoveries, philosophical discoveries, or the common thought of many individuals who think about a subject simultaneously, without consulting each other. Does this help? (Yes.)

Student: Does this all have to do with being under the umbrella of the Urantia Book? (Rayson: No.) Because there are many writers and other things out there?

RAYSON: No, this will not come under the tutelage/authorship or have relevance to the First Revelatory Commission. This is an independent, stand alone development, the text of which will relate, of course, to past revelations, and developments that will be forthcoming on your world. Did my answer help clarify that for you? (Yes.)

Your questions are quite excellent today -- thank you very much. This will aid the readers and those others, whom you do not see. More questions? More thoughts?

Student: Will we be having more detailed or in-depth teachings similar to that in the Urantia Papers, on the life of Jesus?

RAYSON: No. In an expanded nutshell, this text will 1) Augment the teachings of the Urantia Book. 2) Flesh out areas that were left undisclosed. 3) Answer questions concerning issues in the Urantia Book that were not addressed or asked by mortals, and 4) It will address the era of the Magisterial Son and forthcoming developmental eras of your civilizations.

Student: Does this have any correlation or anything to do with "time travel" that's going on?


Student: It seems like the evolution of this material necessitates the need for mortals as well as [illegible] to work in conjunction through the TR's with others of the different committees?

RAYSON: Exactly so. This will not come into existence and will not be fulfilled unless mortals who are not TR's are involved. It is essential that this be co-creatively developed and completed. It will mean that individuals, who participate in groups such as this, will do well to consider the text of the Urantia Book and devise questions. I will give you
an example:

Let us proceed in general terms. Let us say that there is presented a concept in the Urantia Book, and it is just delivered to you. You have a question -- let us say it is regarding the Reserve Corps of Destiny, for example. The Urantia Book says there is a Reserve Corps of Destiny upon your planet, which assists in the fulfillment and development of bringing your planet into The Days of Light and Life -- those individuals who aid consciously or unconsciously the development of this greater good. Most are
unaware of their work, and some are. Now you read that and you say, "Well, wonderful. I wonder if I am part of the Reserve Corps of Destiny?" What remains unanswered are questions relating to the establishment of that Corps, such as, Why was it established? Who is chosen for it? How are candidates selected for consideration? And so on. What you are not asking is how are individuals chosen to be members of the Reserve Corps of Destiny.

Now, that is a very good question, and if you were to ask that, we will tell you that there is an advance candidate selection body that selects individuals generations ahead of their arrival, for placement and development in critical junctures of your governments, economy, trade, philosophy and all the various great categories of human activity. And some wise, curious, inquisitive student would ask, "Well, how do you know this, generations ahead?" And the answer would be that, as has been revealed in the Urantia Book, there are predictive mechanisms for understanding who will come into existence in future generations. Your Thought Adjusters know this well; there is almost a sure anticipation, almost an expectation that you, each individual here, would arrive in the generation in which you arrived, and that you would have particular and peculiar traits,
characteristics, temperaments, and intelligence that would predispose you to certain ways of thinking and activities, and that through the influence of your parents and generations before -- whether they moved from one country to another, would assist in your development and eventual participation.

Many of you might think of this as magical thinking, because the actuarial, predictive instruments that you use for your economic and social predictions are not tuned to this incredibly finite scale. But were you to have intimate knowledge of each individual on your planet, as a sender of data and information about their life, you would be able to have incredibly powerful predictive tools, even with the primitive instruments that you use
now. But you only sample a small percentage of the population or trends to predict what will happen. Were you to have the power of sensing and data input, as do the Most Highs, you too, would be able to understand what will occur on your planet in generations to come.

Even now, the difficulties that you see on your planet were foreseen long before. This era was easily predictable over one hundred and fifty years ago. Given intimate knowledge of human mechanics, development of mind, the improvements generationally of minds to grow, work, and devise technologies, even those that are detrimental, all that is predictable. For instance, your use of DDT was once a very powerful influence on your planet to control malaria and other scourges from insects. Now you find the DDT is very detrimental to the progeny of many and most -- even all -- species on your planet, and you do not use this. Yet, these early chemical substances were easily predicted to come into existence and have these effects. What happens then is that populations rise in those areas which otherwise would have succumbed to malarial infections. Your work in gene therapy was anticipated a long time ago, and the affects that are going on in your gene therapy practices are now anticipated to have great influence on your planet and the populations to come.

Now I have expanded this greatly, to give you many examples of what is known about your planet, just for this one question about an illustration using the Reserve Corps of Destiny as a point of reference. How many other instances in the Urantia Book are available to you? You will do well to think inquisitively, curiously, into the developments that occurred on your planet and through those issues in the Urantia Book, which are given to you. How did they come into existence? Who is chosen, for instance, for the
Reserve Corps of Destiny? How are they known to be existent? Was it when they came into the job market after they were 21, or after they finished college, or education, or they were shown to have promise of some sort in a particular position? These are all good questions, and the deeper questions you develop, the more material you will find will be given to you in return. (Pause.)

I will not provide further illustrations unless you have further questions that you do not understand what I have given to you thus far.

Student: Well, I do have a question. There is a member of our fellowship who is very interested and has done a lot of reflective thinking and pondering about some basic physics questions. And I wonder if there will be a deeper, greater provision in this field, where this individual thinks that a lot of quantum physics and the modern day thought is headed off in the wrong direction. I am just wondering if assistance will be provided to bring our understanding closer to reality?

RAYSON: It would depend on which reality you speak of, the reality of the universe outside the material planes, or on the reality of the material planes where you live. In any case, questions will not be answered until the individual asks them of others or of himself or of his spiritual guides. You can depend that we will not provide direct assistance in the revelation in terms of scientific formulae, but we do insist that individuals inquire into these developments within the capacity of their mind, as they invite assistance. This is a circumspect answer, I believe, to your question, but it is the best that I may give you at this time. Do you have another question concerning this that you have in mind? (Pause.)

Let me answer to the side then, that your nation, your culture has developed exceptionally rapidly in the technological fields, the mechanical, linear fields of reasoning and thought, and that there is little need to augment this except in those areas to assist you with energy, as we have discussed earlier. Zero-point energy is a very helpful project that will assist your civilizations to maintain an increasingly better standard of living and will have many far-reaching affects in your world. Though it is a technological development, the detrimental effects will be far less than the beneficial effects.

The focus of today's discussion is upon the Second Revelatory Commission and the works thereof, its organization, personnel, and its function. If there are no further questions concerning this, we will adjourn today's session.

Student: We've heard before, I think in the Urantia Papers, about our technological development has far exceeded our spiritual development. (Rayson: Correct.) And it seems now that on our planet, there is a great need for a greater ability for we humans to accept one another and learn to live together and resolve conflicts.

RAYSON: Rightly so. (Pause) Hearing no further questions, this is Rayson -- it is a pleasure to be with you here today, to have been a participant in this announcement and to be your teacher. Thank you for your love and your attention today, good day. (Group: Thank you, Rayson, for the additional information.)

RAYSON: Good afternoon, this is Rayson. (Group welcome) My, what a hearty group we have here today! You are stalwart fans for Christ Michael’s work. Neither sleet nor hail nor gloom of night nor blinding snowstorms outside, as today, keeps you from being here. Thank you and welcome. [Ed. Note: Loveland was in the process of receiving 15 inches of snow. Some group members were not able to make it.]

We have enjoyed this week very much, observing mortals of the Urantia Book and the Teaching Mission communities and other communities throughout the world that take note of these transcripts. We have listened to the "buzz," as you say.

And as your teacher, one of my responsibilities is to insure that my students have learned their lessons well. You know that the first elemental necessity of your work of enlightenment is sincerity…sincerity and more sincerity. We wish you to examine your sincerity for your participation in Christ Michael’s work, whether you believe in the Correcting Time or not. What are your interests for Christ Michael’s world and for the healing of your planet? What is your sincerity for participating in this new dynamic era, which has transpired in the last fifteen years or so? What is your relationship to Christ Michael? …and his work?

Second, please review your intent, your intent for all that you do in your life. When you write a letter, make a phone call, and have an opinion, what is your intent? Is it concern for others or is it for yourself? Examine your intent; be earnest about this examination. You have so many activities in your life that we hope and ask that you examine your intent for each activity, whether it is preparing the lunches for your children as they go off to school, or as you read the Urantia Book and hold opinions about others concerning it, and how you think they should think about these subjects.

And I would offer one more—what are your expectations? What do you expect from your belief, from your association, and from your efforts to participate in the Urantia Book studies, Teaching Mission, Correcting Time and this Second Revelation that is to come? Remember, the Melchizedeks’ statement about disappointment, disappointment, disappointment. Will some of you "fatten" on disappointment? Or will you remain "lean and hungry" spiritually? Keep these things in mind, please, as these are fundamental to your work in your life.

Now, I will give you a metaphor about Christ Michael’s concern and interests in the Correcting Time for you, individually. I wish you to imagine a wheat field that is ripe, that is amber and golden and ready for harvest. And this wheat field is ten miles wide and one hundred miles long. The harvest is to begin. And the harvest is complete, where every head of wheat—tens of millions of them—have been harvested, and the dozens and dozens of seeds in each wheat head has been accounted for, not one lost during the harvest. Not one grain out of billions has been lost. This is the care to which Christ Michael is preparing the healing of your planet, and that "one grain" is you. If all your world were saved, and your life and your soul were forfeit, we would count it as a failure. You are of great value; there is a personal, intimate investment in you by Christ Michael. Only by your decision, will you abandon the journey, the great journey of your infinite lifetime to Paradise. Every effort will be given to you, individually.

The care and the preparation for the Correcting Time, has been long. And yes, there are new programs that come into existence as contingencies that are needed in a timely manner. This beginning of the Second Revelation of Papers has been long anticipated. This point now is the earliest at which we can initiate it in your world. And remember, we asked you to ask questions, to prepare your questions. One question [that] seems obvious is "What conditions presaged this arrival of the Second Revelatory Commission’s work?" "What preparations, what standards, what criteria have been met, that it could begin now?"

And I will tell you: Many of you recall that we have oftentimes referred to the "hundredth monkey phenomenon of awareness." Do you recall that? (Students: Yes.) Well, my friends, we are not dealing with monkeys now; we are dealing with mortals—conscious mortals. Now, how are these mortals conscious? They are conscious of participating moment-by-moment, sincerely, intentionally, with the greater design of Spirit for their lives, in participation with Christ Michael and the corps of celestial teachers and other beings of light, who are here. There is now a consciousness worldwide on your planet that is now self-sustaining. Why do you think that "good" comes to those more easily than it did twenty years ago? It is because you are supported in consciousness—spiritual, moral, ethical consciousness, for right and for light in your life and everyone else’s life. Your good is in harmony, it is in pattern, it is complemental to that which is good [for] your planet. And there are enough individuals on your planet now to sustain that continuously. As the Second Revelation is designed, it would be premature to have brought this into existence before where there was a network of enlightenment among mortals.

Last week, Gabriel told you how to proceed. He asked you to come together in groups to study the Papers—and yes, you [individuals] already have questions about what is there—we would hope that you will have questions about what is not there, for the Papers are not complete, as most of you know. Some of you have already come forward with questions, and have delivered them to our dear transcriber. We wish that you hold these back as Gabriel’s conditions for submitting them have not yet been fulfilled. You recall he said, [""When these conditions are met, then the questions can begin."] Some of you may be anxious and say, "I’m ready! Let’s ask questions—what are we waiting for?" "Hey, I’ve had questions for years that I have been waiting to ask. I want to ask them now!"
 Now, let’s tie this back in with the network of consciousness—the hundredth monkey phenomenon—the intent of having you come together in groups is not only to study the text and to ask questions that are reasonable, but it is for you to join in "one mind." You recall from Gabriel’s presentation that he reiterated this consciousness of one mind, over and over again, stated in several different ways. He knows you are not deaf, but he wanted to impress you that this is significant, that this is material to your lives as growing and evolving spirits and souls on this planet.

Your coming together and agreeing upon questions is a process of augmenting, developing the consciousness of oneness on your planet. You are joined with others of the light, all over your world, whether they are Urantians or Catholics or Episcopalians or Hindus. People of the light join each other in consciousness. The intent of this is to help you come to—not only agreement—but [also] peace in your agreements. Surely we do know that you are contentious among each other, occasionally. You vie for dominance of ideas, to present ideas first, to say "Look at me; I know this first!" and you are easily aroused to tell others that their position is wrong, that their beliefs do not fit. Are these positions that the Master would take? No, surely not. He would lead you to a higher understanding of your position. As evolving mortals on this planet, the model that you have before you is to become "like" and "as" the Master. He was neither a sheep nor lion, but truly, a powerful, proactive leader. And yes, he saw the contention among his Disciples. He saw it among the Twelve. He saw it in the temples, among the believers there.

Your planet will never be healed by on-going conflict, divisiveness, selfishness, and self-centered ego aggrandizement, but through the cooperation of individuals, who compromise by developing new ways of seeing the same issues in more constructive ways. We would be glad to help you in your groups, work compatibly, productively, and become voluminously compatible. There are so many ways to come to these solutions that have already been invented and shared with you through your mortal consultants and psychologists.

We are more interested in the process of development of questions than the questions themselves. The process, the journey is more important than the destination. As mortals, it is all about process; it is all about how you work that process. Oftentimes the chores that you are given, the tasks that you are given, are simply to help you through the process. And in the end, through good process working, you will end up with good questions. And through this—we are hoping that it will occur throughout the world—that there will truly be new lines of energy, cooperation, that those people who are of light, who move towards the light—right living, ethical, moral, constructive living—are supported by the energy around them so they succeed.

This process that was inaugurated last week is like turning the wick up, the wick higher on a lamp to make it brighter. The forces of evil from outside your planet have been vanquished. Now you and we must contend with the darkness and the evil on your planet as it exists. There will be no war to wipe it out or eliminate those people of darkness—but simply through the process of bringing more light into your world will your world be brought fully into the light and The Days of Light and Life. You are the candles. You are the wicks. You are the brightness. Through your work, you will help enlighten the world and bring it into peace. Peace is truly an eventuality, but not an assured outcome at this time. Small increments of growth, small increments of consciousness of light are needed to overcome this darkness on your planet. We have given you a program within the structure of your belief system, within your organizations, to help this process. We hope you will engage it constructively, positively, powerfully—and willfully, doing the will of God to enlighten yourself and others around you.

Having said that, I can now step down from the podium to the same level as you. I am delighted! I am encouraged—I am more than hopeful—by the enthusiasm that you have shown within one week. Speaking one-to-one, I say, "Thank you!" We have no doubts —I have no doubts —that there will be many small groups throughout this nation and many nations, that will be developing questions that are thoughtful, carefully crafted, and with a planned and deliberate outcome that they desire. Thousands of you have read the text of the book, and there are literately tens of thousands of questions that can be asked that lie fertile and latent in your minds. We ask you to come together enthusiastically, to develop questions and develop insights on your own into the reading of this material. And remember, your questions are not limited to the book, but to your planet—to the planet that is to come to the Days of Light and Life, eventually.

I am not authorized to answer questions at this time, until the conditions that Gabriel set forth have been met. We would be—I would be —remiss to encourage you to ask them at this time. Beginning now with answering questions would thwart the desired outcomes. This process is not here to encourage you to develop into a "group-thinking mindedness", but individuals coming together.

For too long, individuals have stood alone in their beliefs, coming together frequently—or infrequently—for fellowship. Now we wish you to come together to engage each other to develop the important questions of your life on this planet, your survival on this planet, and the growth of your soul and your successful transition into the morontial realms.

As you worked in your groups, we also wish you to identify those who are TR’s, those in whom you have confidence —and enlist their assistance for this project. This will not be done through one individual, but through many, as Gabriel has requested/announced. We wish you success, and we have set the parameters for success. We know that it will be successful, and this is your desire as well. We have many years to work on this project—let us engage it together, thoughtfully, sincerely, [and] intentionally. Let us state what our expectations are, for we should have expectations that are real, reasonable and understandable to others. Just as the First Revelatory Commission did it’s work, thoughtfully, earnestly, over a long period of time, so too will we and you act in the same way, co-creatively. Use the pattern and example of the First Commission, the work that was done through them, and improve upon it in this new era. Yes, you should be skeptical; healthy skepticism is valuable. Do not hesitate to be skeptical, but we beg of you not to be cynical.

I would be glad to answer questions that are within my domain and authorization to answer at this time.

Student: Rayson, one of the things that people are interested in is… will we be allowed to ask any curiosity-type questions along these lines, from this new Commission? I know in the past, you have steered us away from that, but if there is an overwhelming number of people who really, truly want to know some of these curiosity things, can they be submitted and considered?

RAYSON: Certainly, as long as you understand that we reserve the right to say "no" to certain questions. The intent of curtailing curiosity questions was to keep you on task, to keep you focused, to keep you earnest about the important aspects of these teachings. We know that you have a tendency for digression; curiosity run rampant is detrimental and unproductive. So yes, we will answer curiosity questions, but we will use them to direct your attention to the important issues. (Thank you.)

Student: I have kind of a light and personal question. Assuming that a number of our group are getting up in years and as this process is going to take a number of years, looking at the history of the Urantia Papers development, will we be able to—from the morontia worlds—get information on how this is progressing, or how our grandchildren and great grandchildren and so on, how this progress towards Light and Life is developing on our home planet?

RAYSON: Certainly. You can request transcripts as well. (Laughter.) Ask a light question; receive a light answer! But truly, you will be updated about the progress made on your planet through your own efforts. Your contributions will not be forgotten or ignored or set aside and forgotten, but they will be identified and identifiable. You can research those records easily, more easily than even your archives. Think of the grand "search engines" that the angels have.

[Ed. Note: The Teaching Mission/Correcting Time Archives can be accessed at: http://www.tmarchives.com ]

Student: I was thinking as you were talking Rayson, about what conditions were necessary for this to be timely. I was thinking about how much worldwide communications through the Internet—I mean the fact that we can now communicate with people on the other side of the world in a few hours or minutes—it’s quite amazing so, I wondered if that doesn’t help in the timeliness of this undertaking.

RAYSON: You are certainly correct. The Internet has had a huge effect upon the spread of common consciousness. Consciousness is the thread that ties all of this together. You are living and believing in the consciousness of light. Your contributions of cooperation and compatibility, assistance, support, tolerance—all work towards this consciousness, the association of consciousness of light. We can imagine that those members in Japan for instance, who have read the Urantia Book, may start their own community and develop questions for their own TR’s there and record them and start their own archives. These two efforts are very much parallel, and one will support the other.

The archives needed to be existent before this could truly be effective, truly be cumulative and identifiable within the archives. The Internet created consciousness among everyone that your world is smaller, that you are aware of others in foreign lands who are helping you. Many commiserate about the "out-sourcing" of jobs to foreign countries that assist your business[es] throughout the rest of the world. Yes, it may be harmful nationally and economically in that regard, but internationally, globally, consciously and in the development of global consciousness, it is very, very helpful.

You know that others can relate to you whether they live ten thousand miles from here, or farther. You know that you do not have to rely upon someone in San Jose to help you, but that someone in Bangladesh may. This is a wonderful process. When you think of the tormented continent of Africa, think of the thread of consciousness that is there—it is fragile, my friends, and in some places, totally non-existent. Your consciousness of prayer, directed consciousness towards that continent is very helpful to knit the threads of the lines of consciousness in that continent. Your prayers, your consciousness, your deliberate and intentional thoughts of support and caring, your prayers for Divine assistance to them, is powerful.

You, as an individual in the network of consciousness of light, have the ability to help these individuals immensely. In your groups that develop questions, you can in turn use the group to be a powerful instrument for others in the world. You can augment the Internet of consciousness that you are a part of, and strengthen it immensely through your consciousness. And when you maintain consciousness of this throughout the day, you provide a continuous feed into it. Through your beam of light, in the signal of consciousness that you send, you are all connected. When you realize you are connected in light, you become one part of the one-mind of all on this planet. It is powerful, my friends! (Student: Wow. Thank you.)

Student: Rayson, I have a question: It has to do with the morontia life and our attempt to understand more fully what we can learn from the book on that and from you. First, there were 28 statements of human philosophy that were paralleled to mota and it appears that the archangel author wasn’t able to present the mota content for some reason. Could you shed some light on this?

RAYSON: I will defer that question, and the answer for another time, my friend. This is part of the delay of questions concerning the text, which I wish you to join with others. That is an excellent question. Do not discard it, but keep it and wait for your group to consider it for submission. (Thank you.)

Student: Another question: In regards to the basic energies of space, it was commenting that light and electricity are secondary and a sub-manifestation to those energies, even is stepped down to our system of…(inaudible)…. Is there anything that you can comment about as to their nature, these basic energies of space and whether or not they are accessible on Urantia as a source of free energy?

RAYSON: I will answer that in part. Yes, it is accessible on your planet. This energy is of the eternal nature; it is not time-bound or dimensionally bound. It manifests between the two universes—the finite and the eternal. It may seem impossible, a will-of-the-wisp to pursue, something that is as ethereal as this, but technologies can access that part, that side of that energy in dimensional form. It is truly an unlimited source, and it may neither be destroyed, nor used up, worn out, or discarded—but you can ignore it.

Student: Is it represented in our frequency bands?

RAYSON: Only as an echo.

Student: I have a different type of a question: What is the significance of the ET bases on the backside of the moon, and some on Mars? And why are not ET’s mentioned in the U -book?

RAYSON: ET’s are mentioned in the U-book. They are just not identified as such. "ET" is not a good label for us to use, as it is too exciting and is too culturally specific in your era on this planet. The Urantia Book has repeatedly said that there are other planets, other systems, within the quarantine area. Truly you are not alone in the universe. That is all that I wish to share concerning that. (Thank you.)

Student: It’s rather puzzling to me why Gabriel and Monjoronson feel like "now" is the time for some of this, because we see so little of this higher one-mindedness on our planet. Um….I don’t exactly know how to phrase this question…

RAYSON: I understand your question. We see the network of consciousness upon your planet, and it has existed for a good deal of time. It has been very strong regionally, and in some regions it then disappears. There is a belief now among us, among Michael’s staff, that it is sufficiently strong and global to remain self-sustaining. For all the cynical and bitter statements about the divisiveness of Christianity, belief in God is at an all-time high. The wars of the West and Islam have raised the thought of Allah in the minds of all of Islam. They pray as earnestly as you do. Some of their prayers are not as evolved as yours; and many of your prayers are much less evolved than theirs. You do not see what is on the next page, do you? (No.) We do.

We know that your world is evolving spiritually. Most of you—we took the world as a whole—are moving along grumblingly, complainingly, resistingly. Many of you—even in this community—struggle with your ego about knowing the right way of what to do for others. But you believe! Others believe. You hope, you have faith that there will be peace, that there will be a maturation of your world, eventually, to come into the Days of Light and Life. This step would not have been inaugurated were there not sufficient supports within mortals, themselves, to have this [as] an on-going enterprise. But if you consider continued support through Christ Michael’s many corps in the Correcting Time, you will see that it is very timely. You might think of Christ Michael as a "venture capitalist in spirituality." He believes in you. As much as you argue among yourselves, he knows you are all headed towards the light. Your intentions are in the right direction. You are sincere, and many of you are deeply, deeply earnest.

What we wish you to do—and we know you are fully capable of—is to believe in yourself. Believe in yourself that you can successfully, cooperatively, easily, joyfully work with your fellow brothers and sisters of the light. Once you begin to understand this, then you will see that there are many other purposes to this Second Revelatory Commission’s inauguration than just the generation of questions and the development of new text. And again, the invitation is here, presented to you now, every moment of your waking and sleeping life. When you are in doubt, question the Source. Ask questions of Michael, your Thought Adjuster, your guardian, and your celestial teachers. Do not hesitate; ask for guidance, for understanding, for clarity in your own thinking—as well as your friends. Be humble. And, believe in yourself, without arrogance.

Blessings to you my friends. Truly the lessons that you are experiencing, we appreciate so much, and those of us who have passed so long ago from the mortal realm are able to re-engage this very vital level of spiritual reality that you live through on material planes, and which is such a challenge. All of us thank you so very much for your courage to participate and enter areas that are doubtful, which may contradict your prior beliefs, and challenge your own security in your faith. We look forward to your interest and participation. Good day. (Group gives thanks.)

3. 12-01-04

TEAM:  York, PA.

Teachers: Two unidentified personalities

Transmitters: KL/MB


[NOTE: We did not anticipate the information below to be received and so no recording was made and no hand notes made until much of the text was already given.  The last part of the transmission was taken down verbatim.]


The summary of information received:


1) The second revelation will be simultaneous within the System of Satania to planets that have defaulted.


2) Each planet that went into the Lucifer secession will also have a secondary revelation with variations from Urantia's revelation due to the history and other differences on each planet.


3)There is no one Second Revelatory Commission involved, but there will be many layers of celestial personalities for each planet within the system to produce the second revelation.


4) The Ancients of Days approved the first Urantia Book revelation and issued a mandate of what could and could not be revealed. The second revelation will have the Ancients of Days in some sort of supervisory oversight once again. Permission is already granted but certain areas of truth still may not be revealed. Such information is not finalized.


5) Teachers used on the different planets are not currently being shared between planets.  That is, Planet A does not use the teaching staff found on Planet B and vice versa. Celestial personalities have to more or less specialize their knowledge to one planet due to so many differences. Urantia is a focal point in the universe and it is watched closely. Celestial personalities experimenting with policies and procedures on one planet share with the other system planets what is working in their Correcting Time programs.  They are also sharing what does not work between the different planets undergoing the Correction.


The following information is transcribed verbatim:


Q: What is the trigger to initiate the second revelatory project on Urantia?


First teacher: The process as far as planning has already begun.  We are waiting for individuals to be in place on many levels to facilitate the flow of information.  This will begin when all is ready; not necessarily when human kind is ready.


Second Teacher: There is much preparatory work needed to get the different personalities ready who will be transmitting forthcoming information.  The effect of all this work will be to know God better.  It is as if we are waiting for the salt shaker to be filled with salt so we can shake this information to those who so hunger for words they know will bring meaning to a world in dire need of further help.

4. 11-29-04  Subject: Second Revelatory Commission.
TEAM: Arcadia Teaching Mission
TEACHER: JarEl, Machiventa Melchizedek
TR: George

[We began our meeting by reading the transcript from the Northern Colorado TeaM, #58, Loveland, Colorado Dated 11/21/04, from Teachers: Rayson and Gabriel, Bright and Morning Star -- see #1 above]

JarEl: Good evening, it is I, your teacher, JarEl.  It is good to see all of you once again.  I imagine that you have many questions for me tonight.  The news that you  received is very awesome.  Before I go into this, I would like to tell you, that the predictions in your world exist because of the possibilities in the Universe. In heaven everything is possible and everything exists and on your world there are certain things that are bound to exist, we are certainly waiting for them. We can see down the road and we can see how things are beginning to form and happen.  Just as we saw all of you in this room find your way to this group.  We knew that each and everyone of you would be part of this group at one point in your lives.  In the same way we also know when the dawning of Light and Life will be, but enough of this preparation and on with the
questions.  Are there any questions?

Donna:  JarEl, we were talking just before you started to talk and I was wondering if the information in this new book will be all new or will it be taken from the archives of the Teaching Mission Transcripts that already are printed or will it all be coming together in a new way?

JarEl: TR, George.  This new venture will correlate new information.  It will be new information in response to your questions.  You would have to re-read the old transcripts to validate them in order to include them as part of this project.  Some of the material that was said before may not correlate to the current situation, we leave that to your own judgment.  As I said, much of the information to come will be new.  It will expand on much that was left out of The Urantia Book.  Many of the questions that you might have had that were not answered or simply new questions based on the current situation of your world will be answered.  We are constantly updating information to be current.

The lessons that you will learn in the future will be more complex and in depth.  Many of you have evolved to a point where you understand the lessons in The Urantia Book.  New lessons need to be taught, new ideas, new concepts and new value need to be given to this world in order for it to advance to the next level.  We are doing everything in our power to help you bring this new Age of Light and Life into existence.  By you doing this and taking part in this new project allows us to help you even further and to bring this world into Light and Life at a faster rate.

It is true much of what we predicted as being slow at first has sped up for some reason.  New people have been brought into the fold.  Many are awakening.  All signs are good for this progression.

Larry:  JarEl, is it possible to bring other Urantians into this project?  Not just Teaching Mission people, it would seem to me that questions from the different UB Study Groups would be very valuable to this project?  Or would this cause an even greater divide between some UB Readers and the Teaching Mission?

JarEl: Everything is possible Larry.  If this project is to continue and to have success you must bring in additional help from as many UB Readers as possible, including those who do not entirely believe in the Teaching Mission.  It is important that you include them for the mere reason that you are trying to appeal to the larger audience, the greater
community which is the world.  If you cannot appeal to those who do believe in The Urantia Book, how do you expect to appeal to the greater community, so it is all important to bridge that gap that now exists between these two groups.  It is all important that you embrace your brothers and sisters on this project.  To be divided means to fail, you must unite with one another and bring this project into existence through collaboration with one another.   Only through this collaboration will these new papers be validated.

Donna:  JarEl, are there any ideas out there as to what the name of this new book will be?

JarEl: We will leave that up to you.  We are not naming anything, we are merely giving you the information that you will put in this book.

Larry: Will we be hearing more information from Machiventa Melchizedek on this coming project and some more guidance on what we need to be doing?

JarEl:  Do you want to ask him?  He is here.

Larry:  Certainly, we would like to hear from Machiventa Melchizedek and have any guidance he would have for this group and what we can do to start our process?

Machiventa Melchizedek: Greetings all, this is Machiventa Melchizedek.  Regarding this project that we have set out, I would like to make you aware that participation is not required but is certainly welcomed by all.  If you choose to participate, by all means avail yourself to this, you are not to be denied access to any of this.  We will assist you
whatever your intention.  If you intend to help, we will do all in our power to assist you in bringing this project into existence.  Currently there are many groups on your planet working, as we speak, to prepare the information which shall be given to you.  We have recently just announced this project but the information will come soon.  Do you have any more questions regarding this project?

Currently the Teaching Mission Project has gone exceptionally well.  We are very pleased with the results of our efforts.  The Teaching Mission is now throughout the world.  Many new TR's are developing all over the world.

This new project will focus more on the expansion of The Urantia Book.  It is an addition not a replacement.  It is something that you will have reference to.   It is something that you can look at to find answers to new questions.  We will try to answers all of the questions that you come up with.  Anything that has to do with spiritual value will be answered.

I am not in the business of answering spiritual questions, I simply correlate all of this, so it may help the teacher and you to come to a better understanding as to how the Universe works.  If there are any administrative problems, please ask me and I shall answer any question you may have.

Larry:  Everybody has a lot of ideas of what we need to be doing.  I would think that the Teaching Mission Groups need to be developing new TR's and have TR practice sessions.  I would think that The Urantia Book Study Groups need to start developing questions.  On tml there has been a discussion that we each need to be studying each paper at the same time in order to develop the questions.  To me, I would think that questions could be submitted from whatever paper was being studied by the group.  I don't know which is the best way of doing this?  Are we going to get some guidance on how to set this up or on what will be expected of us?  Or what you want us to do?

Machiventa Melchizedek: Your ideas are good Larry.  The way that I can help you is by correlating much of what you have said.  You can either go topical or you can go linear, but it is not a question of dissecting The Urantia Book and finding what needs to be answered.  I think that the topical method would best suit this endeavor.  Those who have questions should just ask.  It is not required you go through the entire Urantia Book and find every single question that needs to be answered.  Even people who do not read The Urantia Book can ask questions.  This is something that is open to everyone.

Whenever the committee is formed they should have a method in which they will begin to work. The method should be devised by well-thinking people.  This is not a project that should only be done in your spare time or whenever you feel like it.  If you commit yourself to this project, do so wholeheartedly.  We understand your schedules, we understand your lives.  We understand that there are many things in your lives that keep
you from doing spiritual things.  Just imagine yourself in some far off distant future and look back at this time and see yourself being part of this momentous project.  How will you rate yourself, how will you look at the amount of effort that you put into this project?  This is not only for you, this is for the entire human race.  I do not mean to put pressure on you, I am merely stating the significance of this project.  Very well my friends, I now pass it over to JarEl.

All:  Thank you.

JarEl: So my brothers and sisters, you have all heard this exciting news.  You have all been made aware of this momentous occasion.  I say it is on time, for all of you have shown great progress in your lives.  The world has been progressing and the world is getting better.  This momentous occasion only marks the progression that the world
is going through.  The sooner that this project comes into existence the sooner the world will be prepared for this new Age of Light and Life.  Already we see signs of its dawning.  Already do we see signs of people waking up.  Monjoronson is itching to come to this planet.  He is waiting for you.

I have been commissioned by Machiventa Melchizedek to help you in any way possible.  My job is now twofold: I will teach this group in a personal way, but I will also teach for the greater community as well.  The lessons I give from now on should be submitted as part of this project.  Prepare your questions.  Thank you and good night.

All:  Good night.

RAYSON: Good afternoon. This is Rayson. (Group greetings.) It is a pleasure to be here with you. We are pleased with the progress of the Second Revelatory Commission, its development and volunteers, the organization and leadership. This is essential for our co-creative efforts to make progress. You will always be working in groups, in addition to your own individual work that you have with us. Learning these basic skills of working within groups is essential for the onward movement and healing of your planet. You know the results of division and exclusion only so well, and to learn the fundamental skills of inclusion and cooperation is important for your life, your morontial existence and for the perpetuating existence of your work groups that you will leave behind eventually.
Now, as this group is meeting here and you have established the merkaba during the meditation, we wish you to visualize the planet Earth from a distance, so that as it rotates, you see this spike of energy, this spike of light, here in Northern Colorado that is the merkaba energy. And as you open your consciousness to your planet as it revolves below you, you begin to notice more spikes of light where groups are meeting, where individuals are coming together in the name of the triune God, coming together in the Spirit of Truth. You will find that some of these spikes of energies are larger than others, some are brighter, and some have different hues of color to them. As you begin to visualize your planet this way, you realize that these beacons of light connect you all energetically, and that truly, with the encircuitment of your planet, your planet is engulfed in a shell of light. This is the consciousness of Christ Michael; this is the consciousness of Nebadonia; this is the consciousness of evolved and enlightened humankind. This has a broad, global effect and it is accessible to each individual and to each group. It is your intent that makes the spike exist in the group. It is your sincerity that gives it its hue of color—or its whiteness—and the number of enlightened minds, souls who are here gathered together gives it its size. Some of you cannot "see" this; others of you can. I wish you to know that it truly exists and this is how we see your world at times, as we choose.

Today, part of the design of these instructions is to further elucidate the work within the SRC, the Second Revelatory Commission, and how this will develop. Today’s topic particularly involves the TR’s you will be using for this process of questions and answering. We heretofore have not discussed this in much detail, as we do not wish to get into the process or formula of comparison between TR’s around the world. It is unproductive to do these comparisons. But it is essential that you understand how this process is affected at deep levels by the person, who is the TR.

You recognize among you that individuals are different, and that each of you brings with you different talents and abilities. You also bring forward different capabilities—undeveloped abilities. TR’s have developed their latent skill into an ability—and have set their ego aside to let a celestial entity, as myself or a Divine being, come through them without being corrupted by the ego. So too, do we recognize that individuals bring with them a differing repertoire of history and experience of race consciousness and DNA patterning. All these factors affect the work of the TR. The result we wish for is credible transmissions, uncorrupted by social comparisons, comparisons of social worth, by ego embellishments or diminishments. It is not that TR’s are exempt from that, but during the TR process it is essential that they set aside themselves as an ego structure and let the energy, the message come through clearly. That is the primary qualitative response that we wish to have develop in TR’s.

It is still very early in the SRC’s work to have TR’s begin the process of answering questions. You have yet to note that different TR’s have different capabilities or genre in which they are more capable. As we have mentioned before, this one and his celestial teacher are easy for us to work with, [or] work through, regarding global issues, large perspectives, rather than minutia. Other TR’s are very capable of answering those levels of questions, whereas they would not be able to clearly bring through conceptually the issues or topics that come through one who is more globally oriented. We do not have the latitude of using a "sleeping subject" to bring these messages through in a trance-channeled fashion. It was decided quite some time ago that after the sleeping subjects were used that any development later must include conscious individuals, using a conscious mind to bring through these messages. The hazard of course is that there is an active consciousness that brings with it a certain self-identity, identification, of who they are and their value and worth, their ego, in so many words. The benefit, however, is multiple that we can access and work more consciously with the mind structure, the vocabulary and the conceptual structures of the mind, beforehand, before the TR session occurs, that we can pick and choose candidates for the topics that we bring through. It is very much like using a soprano saxophone, and tenor saxophone, as opposed to one saxophone only. While the trueness of the notes are played the octaves are changed. We have our choice with whom to bring our messages through. For now, those choices are few.

That is why, those of you who have an inkling of being interested in becoming a TR, should begin to ask your Thought Adjuster, your Celestial Teacher, and Christ Michael if you are an appropriate candidate; and further condition your work as a TR to be in accord with your life plan held by your Thought Adjuster and Guardian. We encourage your to pursue this activity if in doubt, and proceed. The benefit for you is that TRing these messages for others brings with it an energy, practice, and literally an indoctrination to such deep levels of your being that the intent of these messages will ring like a bell within the whole of your being, moment-to-moment in your consciousness, even when you do not TR. It is truly anomalous for an individual to TR at length over many years and not to be affected by the messages and consciousness that comes through them. And this of course is appropriate, is it not? You would not anticipate otherwise.

TRing is much like reading a good book—you read the book and while you read it, it ingrains its messages in you. Those of you who have read The Urantia Book, your lives have been changed. Even those individuals who have turned away from the book and say, "No thank you," they are still affected by it. And this is a service, a great service to your self and to Christ Michael. TRing requires those individuals, who are steadfast in their earnestness and commitment to Christ Michael, to willingly allow the broadening of themselves to embrace Christ Michael’s message through them to others. TRing will help you evolve, and it has the capacity to change your life. The degree of that depends upon the depth of their commitment and their willingness and flexibility to allow their life to be amended.

Our work with TR’s is a long-term investment; it is not short-term, and at the same time it is expedient. Many individuals inside and outside the Teaching Mission have been considered and many are active candidates. Candidacy does not initiate TRing capacity —only the unaware candidate can do that by actively and willfully by choosing to try to become a TR.

By matching TRs with the material to transmit through them, we are able to provide messages that have less potential of becoming garbled beyond recognition. If we provide material that is outside their level of expertise and awareness, we compromise the extent and quality of the material that comes through to you. For example, let us suppose that you have a question regarding a certain paleontological era of the past, about a certain species or some topic, that has not been revealed in the Urantia Book or through the TR sessions in the past, or even through contemporary research. By asking a question through a knowledgeable TR, you would receive a more competent answer from someone who knows the conceptual structure of that scientific pursuit.

If you are skeptical, you will surmise that this also provides a shield of protection for the TR from being uncomfortable with material they are unacquainted. As well, there is the risk that the individual may simply make up the answer out of their mind. Our protection is our measurable awareness of each TR’s sincere commitment and intention. These must be very clearly stated by the TR candidate in the beginning as they make their commitment to Christ Michael to deliver clear messages that are not involved with the TR’s ego or their desire of wished-for answers. In the long-term, the answers that are made up will become known as the archives and research will show them to be what they are.

On the other hand, you truly can receive accurate answers within very tight parameters from any TR, but those parameters may be limited to "yes" or "no" answers. For more thoughtfully developed answers, you will need a TR who has the conceptual capacity to be used by us, clearly. I am taking my time to deliver this to you because, of course and only too ironically, this does come through a TR. It is essential in this regard, at this moment and moments to come, times to come, that TR’s have clearly made themselves as clear of their own issues as possible. Quaintly, it may seem old-fashioned, but this does not necessitate work through psychotherapy, though of course those chores are necessary for the larger issues [that] individuals have to remove.

But as you—individually—as you read this, know from your own life, from your own commitment to Christ Michael, to Nebadonia, to your Guardian and to your Thought Adjuster, that your own growth has occurred through your own sincere commitment, intent and perseverance in removing those issues that cause you angst in your life. Truly as the Ancients have said, if you want to awaken with a renewed heart, then when you go to your stillness declare your intent for doing so. And we know for many of you that you declare your first intent to be the most evolved individual you possibly can be in your lifetime, through your Thought Adjuster’s guidance and your Guardian’s assistance. Many of you who have pursued this form of enlightenment diligently to resolve and dissolve your many social, emotional, psychological and familial bumps, bruises and scrapes—and life has seemed to be awfully tough for you. These are situations where your Guardian and your Thought Adjuster have prepared you for going within to examine your journey, and to remove the debris of your social and emotional lives, to clear away the deadwood, and to get on with your active life. You are fashioning your morontial soul through your daily decisions, through your words, through your thoughts and through your actions.

Just as diligently and fervently and seriously as we ask TR’s—and individuals who wish to TR—to be clear, so too, we ask you to be clear. For as you work through the committees developing questions for the SRC, your intents must also be as clear. Your sincerity must also be as plain, humble, honest, and authentic. You will find that questions you ask are more easily developed when you get out of the way of their development. You in some regards are open palettes, blank canvases as you work with each other and as you work with your Celestial Teachers and Guardians for the development of clear questions. This process, which is set before you, has many, many repercussions. We see this as a multiple-win situation for everyone, including your planet. It is a developmental and evolutionary process for us as well, and we will be working with you in your groups. Do not be afraid to change the form, size, or format of your working groups. That may be necessary for you to be clearer in your question development.

Let us step back from the immediacy of these issues and examine these alternate, secondary—you may consider them primary as we do—outcomes and developments of the process that Gabriel and Christ Michael have enacted. It is another way of engaging you, consciously, in your lives in co-creative manner. It is a constructive way to give you something to consciously work on during the day as you go to work, or school, or you take care of the children—whatever you do. You may want to keep a pen and pad handy to write down questions that develop in your mind as you work through the day. It is kind of a little signal for you to keep this in your mind, for your minds are multi-layered, they work on many plateaus. You have, so to speak, many programs running simultaneously, and you are quite capable of developing questions and insights, while you do the many things that you do during the day. It is a matter of addressing those levels and having your notepad beside your workplace, that may help you do this. It is a reminder also, that you are involved in the daily maintenance of your planet, that this is a co-creative consciousness with us, as we help maintain your planet.

Our curricula indicate that there is a need for TR training. We have striven to work with you individually. We have presented you with the proposition to ask Christ Michael and Nebadonia to see whether you are a candidate. We would like to now open the prospect or the opportunity for someone to organize a multi-day program at some conference or some retreat. It does not have to be annually or every 3 years—it could be every 6 months, if you wish, where there would be part of the program every day that would be [for] TR’s in training—how to get in touch with your inner voice. And even if you go to these sessions and you only sit there in stillness, open to the reception of your Thought Adjuster, you will have benefited greatly. It may be that you would want several sessions led by different instructors through the various days of your conference. We will be working with you as this develops. Some of you will be called to do this, while others are not. Obviously, many will be called to attend to enhance their capabilities to listen.

I will say, once more, that being a TR does not make you "special." And I will say that if you are unable to TR, if you are unable to hear, if you are not even able to still your mind from its activity, this too neither makes you less than or more than others. It only identifies your capability for various activities. All are invited; not everyone has the abilities to respond. Do not feel bad about yourself, or have it affect your self-worth, your self-esteem, if you do not have this capacity. We have mentioned this many times in the past, and we know this causes some of you a good deal of angst and unease and uncertainty about your value to the Correcting Time. My friends do not fret over this at all. You may see yourselves simply on the beach of the morontia worlds, in the great sunlight of the universe, basking in that, while others serve you. Enjoy that image; you are truly needed in all regards.

We are open to questions if you have any.

: Rayson, based on what you have just been talking about, TR’s having different capabilities for different subjects, would it be better if we put questions into different categories, and then sent the questions to the person who would most likely be able to TR the answers for those questions?

: We would ask you to send questions to their group host, such as yourself, to ask those questions. Eventually, the process—not necessarily a procedure—will allow you to forward your questions according to categories of capability to the group host by your question committee. We strive to keep this as simple as possible. Yet, we wish to have them be most effective questions fully developed when they are asked, so that it does not necessitate later asking these questions in greater detail. Does that answer your question?

: Yes, it helps. It will just take some time for us to figure out how this process will work most efficiently.

: This is still in the very, very early stages. If you were to imagine the point of conception and the division of cells, we are still in the blastomeric phase. [Daniel: "Is that a word?" (Student: Yes. I know what you mean.)] You expect so much so early on. This is why you have such great impatience with your fellow brothers and sisters. You expect them to be at peak performance promptly. You are seeking for yourself and others to be Olympian ice skaters, yet having only gotten on the ice for the first time. (Much snickering.) There will be pratfalls and slides across the ice occasionally. Be patient and chuckle and know that you will too.

: Rayson, is this an appropriate time for me to try to TR with either my teacher or with you?

: Yes, of course. Feel whom is most strongly present, and TR that individual.

: All right. That would be my teacher, Zareth.

: Please proceed. And we ask here to have the latitude to ask Zareth questions, so you become acquainted with that process. Are you comfortable with that, Jerry?

: Yes, thank you.

: This is Zareth. (Group welcome.) Thank you. There are many things, which I am hopeful of passing on through this TR, concerning the excitement that we feel in this new mission. The spiritual pressure that Christ Michael has brought to the Earth and to us all is creating much good progress in the development of the Teaching Mission. If there are questions any of you would like to ask, I will do what I can to bring you an answer.

Student: Zareth, could you tell us a little bit about yourself, perhaps what planet you hail from and some things that we might use to get to know you a little better?

: I would be happy to. I hail from a planet that is farther along in Light and Life than this one, and I must admit that it was quite an experience to see the difference and to become more acquainted to the problems—severe problems—that you are having here. It is very instructive for me and quite a growth experience at the same time. My planet has reached a stage where communities are spread out in beautiful panorama. There are no congregations in large cities. Dwellings are surrounded by beautiful trees, orchards, and flowers, maintained, as you would hope to see in your fondest dreams. Transportation is readily accomplished by anti-gravity belts and contains a capability to protect us with a protective energy shield in transit, so we can explore the planet and meet with our comrades at a moment’s notice. It is truly a world that you would consider to be almost heaven—no wars or disappointments—that sort of thing.

My own progress through the mansion worlds has carried me through those and a little beyond. I was most happy to be offered the opportunity to come back as a teacher here to further my experience and give me an opportunity to assist and help your progress. Does that provide a sufficient answer at this time?

: That’s very interesting. Were you chosen to be Jerry’s teacher because of his interest in the zero-point energy field, or did that have nothing to do with it?

: My selection was not for that specific accounting and many times in the progress of that, I require more experienced teachers, who are more familiar with those aspects to assist me, to assist him. But I am very happy to have the opportunity to be his teacher.

: Zareth, I have a question. There is a lot of thought, spin, going on, on the Internet now because of Sarmast’s exploration in the area of the first Eden, and connecting this to Atlantis. There is much discussion about whether this is an opening to sharing or interesting more people in the world in The Urantia Book. Some people think it’s opening a door and other people think that we had better just wait and see how things develop. Do you have any comments about that?

: The natural interest of world populations in those types of issues is always high. They create the desire to explore and to understand and to find truth in many individuals. Some are successful in pursuing it and staying with it, and who would not compliment them on their interest and desire to learn and find the truth? The real truth will be coming as investigations proceed, and it will entice us all to anticipate and to expect and hope, and at some point, we all hope that we find the truth. I have nothing more to say on that subject. Are there any other questions?

Student: Zareth, what was your field of interest when you were a mortal and did you have a family?

: Yes indeed! I did have a family. I had two boys and a girl and I was involved in healing, using herbal techniques that you could call alternative techniques now. I was very successful at my profession when I was in the body.

: Were the plant forms that you used strictly for the planet that you lived on or is it possible that some of those are grown here on Urantia?

: Urantia is a wonder-house of plants, and many of the plants that I recognized are here in abundance, and they are continually being mined by the doctors of alternative medicine and specialists, with good results. I find that most interesting and I would be happy to be of help in some of those areas.

: Thank you very much. That could be most helpful.

: If there are no other questions, I will close and give you my love and my peace, and Christ Michael’s peace. (Group gives thanks.) You are most welcome.

: This is Rayson. This is a most timely development in this group to have a new TR to come forward, to more publicly TR. If there are no further questions, we will close today’s session. I will wait for you to consider if you have more questions.

: Yes, I do have a question. At one of our very early meetings, you made this statement that you would leave us with a question to ponder and that it could be answered at some other time. Your question was, "What arrives in the fetus before it is born, which gives it animation and substance? What is it?" and you asked us to think about that. Would that have anything to do with perhaps when the soul incarnates?

: One moment. (Long pause.) The soul is one part of it. There is something additional that comes to the child besides life. There comes to this new being, a "person-hood," which exists before its delivery. It is more than the spark of life—you may call it the "color" or the "hue," the vibrancy, the "sound of the spark of life," and this is the individuality of the person who will come into being. It exists, as it is existent, yet much of what it will become to exist will be developed through its living, through its interaction with its environment. It is a living potential. It exists within the unborn child; it pre-exists to delivery. This is the animation of the individual, who will "become." Several of your existential philosophers discussed the "process of becoming," and the delivery of the "individual to be," before birth, is what I was referring to.

There is an excitement, a quivering of energy in the early developing fetus within the mother. We truly wish that mothers-to-be and fathers-to-be could be aware at least two or three months before conception, that they were going to conceive a new being, and prepare that fertile ground with diligence, with sincerity, with hope and intentional preparation for that conception. And then through gestation to support and uphold that "new individual becoming," with sincere clarity, to nurture and protect this new being, with the greatest capability. For in doing so, this brings into existence mighty, capable children and eventually adults. This era of the first year before birth is extremely important.

Your scientists are only beginning to understand the complexities and the sensitivity of this developing fetus, and how this environment before birth affects their eventual life as children, and young adults and eventually as adults. And then the next five years are so important as well, for nutrition, for benevolence, for what you might call "Christ-minded parenthood" of this new individual and then the social and environmental, and spiritual challenges that you give this new child, this new being. Yes, there is an animation that occurs before birth and this is the reception of this new person, and this has not been revealed much either, has it? Thank you for your question.

: In that "new-being becoming," rather than the soul, is it the personality gift?

(Rayson: Yes. "Like" the personality.)

: There was an interesting discussion in one of the study groups, not too long ago, where the idea was expressed that even embryos or fetuses that do not come to term, are also reborn in the newborn nursery on the mansion world. Is that true?

: It was said so, yes.

: Can that go back to even the simplest form of that being, like a 2 or 4 cell zygote, I believe it’s called at that point?

: Literally, the saving grace occurs when the identity of the individual is invested in the zygote. We will not give you at this time the cellular dimensions of when it receives that.

[This is Daniel: What I saw, it was at the time of implanting in the uterine wall.]

: That’s close enough, thank you.

: I had seen in a transcript something about the "soul incarnating" and that is what I was trying to pin down. Is the soul given as a gift, and then developed from there, or is it something that the individual initiates on their own, such as at the time of their first moral decision? Does it exist before that time?

: I will let you think about this and leave it for another time to answer. This is an important question that we wish you to ponder and also research from the references that you have at hand. This will give you a pointed exercise to do in your archival research and your reference research.

This is Rayson, and I am most pleased to be here with you today. We in this group are rather embryonic too, are we not? So much has been brought together, but we know that conception has occurred. You know that when something is forthcoming that is significant, it has identity, it has meaning, it has value and it has existence and that this is something that can be shared from this group to others, and other groups can share it with others as well. Know too, that we, as we join you, we bring something to this party as well. Your invitation for our presence opens us individually, and as our group participates in your group, [there ensues] an energy to aid you and our co-creative efforts. You will find this to be so in all the future eons of this planet as we work co-creatively together. Good day. (Group gives thanks.)

December 27, 2004

[This session was arranged for the purpose of meeting with Rayson to ask questions and discuss approaches for working with the Second Revelatory Commission.  “SR,” a Coordinator for the mortal aspect of this co-creative effort was in town briefly.  Several members of the Northern Colorado group were able to attend this extra session as well.]


RAYSON:  Good afternoon.  This is Rayson.  (Group welcomes Rayson for returning so soon, as he had met with the group the day before.)  I never left!  We have quite a pantheon of guests here among with us.  I am your “MC,” so to speak, and I will accept questions later on.  First, I wish to introduce our first speaker, Gabriel, who will be followed by Machiventa.


GABRIEL:  Good afternoon.  This is Gabriel.  (Group greets him warmly.)  We welcome you to this Sovereign meeting.  For our guest today, I wish to provide an overview from Orvonton and Nebadon, in orientation to what is occurring here today and with the Correcting Time, Teaching Mission, and the Second Revelatory Commission.  The work of the Correcting Time that Michael has inaugurated is most unusual.  All of Orvonton and Nebadon are in awe and wonder at his procedure for healing the wounds of the rupture of darkness that was brought about by the dark personalities, whom you know of. 


Co-creative efforts to heal these wounds on the planets are very rare in all of the Universes.  It is not unusual, but it has not occurred locally.  It is, as you know, a high-risk enterprise, it is long term and requires diligence and patience of grand magnitude on the part of all who are involved in this.  The rewards, however, are very huge and they are more immediate than increasing the spiritual pressure upon the planet as is done on most other planets that have aberrations.  The reward is two fold: One, it is our belief, our intention, through the assistance of Michael and his Celestial Legions, that the healing of the planet will occur more rapidly than through the pressure increase process.  Secondly, the soul value—if we can use that term with you—the “weight” of souls leaving this planet is much greater because of the decision-making that individuals must make to participate and heal themselves and move on. 


This is not a rapid construction process, typical of many that you have seen on your planet by humans.  This is deeply planned by Michael and his Staff.  You can be assured that these processes, these developments will unfold carefully and in a timely manner, and not prematurely.  This is the overview that I am directed to present to you today.  You may accept that this work of the Second Revelatory Commission is a development of the First, was foreseen but not revealed at an earlier time.  And now, I present Machiventa Melchizedek, your Planetary Prince.


MACHIVENTA:  This is Machiventa.  (Welcome from group.)  I am pleased to be here as well and I am so pleased to see your diligence and your care, your commitment, your sincerity and your intentions so clearly laid out before you.  These are all highly visible to us.


The aspect of the Second Revelatory Commission was not revealed in the first Revelations simply because it would divert attention from the effectiveness and the work of the First Revelatory Commission.  There was no need to reveal this to any of the mortals, either in secrecy or in open forum. 


The first Revelation, the intentions of that were to set the story right, which was simply put.  It was not intended to begin a new religion or a new church, as that was seen as another ossification of the text of revelation, and the investment of authority within an organization would hold back the work of that revelation itself.  It is no coincidence that this Second Revelatory Commission has been inaugurated at this time, as it will provide material that is much more friendly, palatable, and palpable to ordinary believers, whether they come from a religious background or not.  The only helpful aspect that would help them would be to have a belief in God.  This would be more easily acceptable for many people.


Young lady, [SR] we are very pleased at the work that you have begun.  We are most pleased with your own diligence and your commitment, your appraisal of truth, your digging and your prospecting, your search, your willingness to uncover truths wherever they may be.  We have had need of a good mind to help organize these efforts, the efforts of other sincere mortals and the efforts that we can provide through you.  You too, have been a recipient of much insight, as you know.  Do not hesitate to step forward even more.  There will be other groups that will develop and we know that you will not be able to individually and personally attend to each group, but we would ask that you provide your voluntary assistance to future leaders as they request, and as you offer.  We are most appreciative of the eagerness that you have shown.


Now, I will remove myself and turn this over to your teacher, Rayson, who will be glad to entertain and answer your questions.  Thank you.  (Group thanks Machiventa as well.)


RAYSON:  Good afternoon.  This is Rayson.  Now we can get over with the “edgy feelings” and get on with the work at hand today.  We have been asked to co-creatively meet with you to answer any questions you may have.  Again, we would like you to frame them from a global perspective to begin with, as this will assist you more effectively to get to the specific questions in a more appropriate, timely, and effective manner.  You may begin.


SR:  I have a group of twenty people who asked to participate on the SRC committee to ask questions.  To start with, I have given them an assignment, first to write a little “bio,” state their intentions, and formulate two questions for consideration.  Now I realize from their input that this project is much more complicated than I originally thought.  I wonder if we should work with categories, or read the Urantia Book together sequentially. Do you have any suggestions?


RAYSON:  Certainly.  Our preparation for this group, your question askers, and participants is that you would “mine” a line of thinking.  You may mine several lines of thinking at one time if you wish, but it would be most helpful to you, as well as to us, to be able to answer questions of a lineage, rather than at each meeting asking perhaps twenty different questions from twenty different categories. 


The reason for this is that these revelations are instructive and they are developmental, and in some regard they are evolutionary.  You will find that the development of ideas through the answers that are provided to be almost lessons in themselves.  As the questions are answered, these will lead to further questions in this genre.  Continuing this line will be most profitable for you.  It may seem tedious, but on the other hand, for others it will be quite an exploration, and their curiosity will be whetted and satisfied as they proceed.  The ability of offering several—three or four—lines of questions in a session also provides variety among the answers.  You will find too, that there will be a rapport between the answers given, between the categories.  Obviously, you are aware that all of this must be consistent and not inconsistent.  There is a complement and compatibility to the answers. 


We are not shy in this regard about answering esoteric questions.  We really care that you not ask questions such as “How many hairs are on an angel’s head,” or “How many can dance on a pin,” as those lead to very irrelevant answers and do not contribute to the comfort of those who read these lessons.  We wish to convey through the lessons, these answers, a compassion for everyone who reads them, whether they are Christian or whether they are Buddhist or whether they are of another religion.  Part of our mandate is that these answers be available, compatible, and applicable to all populations.  Obviously there are language limitations in English, which are overcome in other languages that also have their own inherent limitations.  Curiosity questions will be entertained, if you feel and have intent that they are relevant to the pursuit of your questioning, your line of questions. 


You will find that the revelations that are given will be more forthright, they will not be glib and they will be quite candid.  Just as knowledgeable, caring, compassionate parents reveal to children the truths as they can accept, as they grow older they can only do so when the groundwork has been laid for them to hear the larger answers.  You live on a most difficult planet, where some of the answers to your questions are quite harsh.  You live in a harsh environment.  This is a very material, a very masculine planet.  This infusion of answers is to assist the Mother Energy on your planet; the feminine is essential to balance out the future of this planet’s environment.  Does this help you?


SR:  Yes.  It will help when I study the transcript.  I have another question: If, in researching a topic using the Urantia Book and Teaching Mission Archives, we find something of a conflicting nature, such as two TR’s who give differing answers to the same topic, is that the kind of question we can ask to resolve the confusion?


RAYSON:  We wish not to enter into that fray at this time, as was revealed a week or so ago.  We wish to continue the dialog and monolog with you and provide additional information.  You will find these loose strands that seem conflicting will eventually be drawn into the new weave, the warp and woof of the new fabric of information.  It has been our observations among you that getting into these, “he said/she said,” “he TR’ed/she TR’ed” situations does not assist in your comfort and belief, but rather perpetuates this.  The reason why we do not wish to enter into this at this time is also because of using TR’s — they are in our terms, “fragile” and inconsistent, whereas we are used to high degrees of reliability of truth in the communications that we have.  Error is inherent in using conscious beings as TR’s to reveal these truths.  We feel that entering into this process would only add more fuel to the fire.  It will lead to greater contention and to greater discussion and diversity of your conversations regarding these issues.  Thank you.  (Short pause.)


May I add, that what we wish to do is to—in your research of the Urantia Book and the Teaching Mission archives—is to find where there are more gaps or holes in the Revelation.  It may be that you are able to structure your inquiries in your questions in a manner that answers your first question as well as fills in the gaps of information.


SR:  In the history of Urantia section of the Urantia Book, a lot of it seems outdated because of new findings since the 1930s.  Will the history be amplified to include the new findings of the last seventy years, such as additions to the fossil record?  Can we ask questions designed to fill in these gaps in our historical record?


RAYSON:  Most certainly, you will not receive the incredibly detailed information that was given in the Urantia Book, but you will receive generalities about these histories on your planet.  As was stated in the Urantia Book, that they could only reveal realities as they existed at that time and could not reveal realities which would be foreseen in the next two or three-thousand years, by your scientists.  This would cause great difficulty.  The generalities we will give you will assist you in homogenizing the inconsistencies that you see in your scientific records.


SR:  Since there have been so many inventions since the Urantia Book was written—for example cell phones—will there be more analogies made that will help us to understand such things as the “harps of God?”


RAYSON:  Yes.  There will be many more metaphors for us to use for you to understand your relationship to this world and to the mansion worlds, now as you live here and then as you live there.   Does this answer your question about scientific development?


SR:  Yes…. I think so…. I think it will become clearer later on when we start asking actual questions.  I have a million questions, I just don’t know where to begin, or which ones to pick that would be most helpful for getting started.


RAYSON:  It may be useful for you to ask many questions.  Today we offer a broad field for asking questions, so that you may hone your ability to develop questions later.


SR:  There is one thing that I’m very curious about.  I have read the Gabriel of Sedona Books, and he claims to be an extension of the Urantia Revelation.  At first, I didn’t believe it and then I read it again before going to visit him, and it began to make sense to me.  Because some of it rang true to me, I became confused about the contradictions between it and the Urantia Book.  For example, on the subject of reincarnation, if the Urantia Book is in error on this subject, will this be corrected in the new text?


RAYSON:  I will try to answer your three questions.  First, this individual you refer to, is an open portal of consciousness—there have been many in your history of this world, in this nation and many other nations—the psychic phenomena that has occurred through him is not unusual in that we use individuals as this to reveal as much truth as possible.  You can think for yourself of the many individuals who came forth and published and had an effect upon your nations and civilizations since the Fifteenth Century.  You can see, looking back historically, that some of these individuals had gotten it right, whereas others did not.  Also, this requires you to be very discerning —the consciousness of the individual mortal affects what they say.  The stronger the individual and their ego, the more influence it has upon the revelations that come through him or her.  You could not possibly get white light to transfer clearly through a pink piece of glass, could you?  Certainly not.  So too, truth as white light, comes through many individuals over the centuries, in many countries, in many cultures.  The influence of spirit through individuals, i.e. revelation, as you would call it, is ongoing, it is unending.  It is essential that it be so, in order that your truths, your religions may grow.


SR:  He talked about people coming here from advanced planets to help advance our civilization, by the “star seed” concept.  I find a lot of New Age beliefs are based on what seems to be true.  Is this type of confusion going to be cleared up in this process?


RAYSON: The influence of other civilizations upon your planet has been ongoing.  This has not been through biologic seed planting, as that is the work of the Life Carriers.  The “influence seeds” that have come to your world have been intellectual, spiritual, and technological.  These become evident when seen from your history that there was a sudden burst of wisdom of sciences, of mathematics that were profound, unexpected, [and] evolutionarily sudden.  Often, these have been the work of those who have assisted in the elevation of your planet.  Just as your nation tends to go out and meddle in other countries’ business, so too other civilizations have meddled in the work and the development of your planet, albeit they knew that this world was in quarantine for many thousands of years.  This does not prevent strong-headed individuals and strong-headed civilizations from influencing your planet. 


I would be less than helpful to you to go into this in great detail, as we would be  “going down a rabbit hole,” which would be unproductive and divert you from the true work that you have before you.  There are tremendous psychic abilities in each individual; these are latent in many of you, active in some and highly developed in others.  Just as there are very few individuals who have absolutely no psychic abilities, who are of average intelligence and good heredity, so too there are very few of you who have the clarity of a morontial or a midwayer being.  Yet, it does exist. 


Let me add that because the universe is a friendly place.  Consistently, our positions are that we will not impose beliefs that are strongly contrary to yours.  Our mandates are to lead you consistently, faithfully, lovingly, compassionately, carefully, tenderly as we would with children, for you are spiritual children.  You would not go into a birthday party and throw around firecrackers, scaring the wits out of children, even though as adults it may seem like a lot of fun.  We could do this too with the revelations that could be made to you, and these could be directly planted into your mind, but this would be most destructive and devastating to you as an individual, for your life would be forever changed during the duration of your mortality. 


So too, we will not reveal information, insights, [or] technological information that would detrimentally affect your course as a civilization and as a world.  Therefore, you as a civilization have developed technologically, whereas other civilizations have developed intellectually, psychically, philosophically, and morontially.  We honor your belief that this does not exist.  We do not go along and slap you in the face like cantankerous or ornery mothers that will not allow your children to swear.  So too, we will not shock you into believing that psychic phenomena are truly an aspect of your lives.  Now, having said that, I could reveal much more and take up three or four hours of your time on this topic alone today, but I think that this alone will give you an opportunity to ask much more pointed questions today and in times to come.


RA:  Rayson, I have a more global-type question.  I know that a lot of Urantia Book readers who have studied the book for a long time are looking forward to perhaps getting some of their big questions answered.  But I also hear from you, Machiventa and Gabriel that there are a lot more people who have needs that this new book (SRC) could address that would perhaps reach people who cannot handle a big, complex book like the Urantia Book.  Do you have any guidance in that area?


RAYSON:  Yes, certainly.  We do not foresee that there would be a huge volume as the Urantia Book.  We foresee that there would be a “library” of books—thin books—that reveal the lessons that have been given to you and reference the material that is provided in the Urantia Book.  These volumes will grow, of course; they are open-ended books.  The questions and the answers that we give now are preliminary.  These materials will be developed in time so that you are able to “mine” them and bring them together.  This will cause you to ask more questions, which is good.  Does that answer your question, though you had a nebulous question?


RA:  Yes.  I just wondered if it would be more beneficial to our planet as a whole to come up with questions that the layperson wants to know the answers to, rather than being a very scholarly work that only a few people would understand.


RAYSON:  If these materials are not practical, then they will not help the individual and they will not help your civilization.  We are not concerned about your civilization through these activities; we are concerned about the individual, so that they understand easily and comfortably, their part and their role on this planet as material beings and as spiritual beings evolving.  Surely, this must be readable to the vast majority of individuals.  Look at the intellectual cream of the crop that reads the Urantia Book—this is a very remote and isolated group of people.  Many concepts they speak easily about in [study] groups are not easily understood by the layperson in the community, and this is unfortunate, yet this is another reason for this work that we have begun here.  Thank you.


SR:  I had a question about the nuts and bolts of this.  For example, let’s say that an answer is given to a question.  Do we then take that verbatim, or can it be edited?  What are the rules about that? If an answer seems to lack clarity, would it be considered tampering to say it more clearly through editing?


RAYSON:  We welcome you to participate in the editing of the transcript that is forthcoming from today.  You will find that many of the answers that are given that come through this mouth are repetitious, or that the syntax is not right, that there may be disagreement of the number and person in grammar.  It would be most unfortunate if these transcripts were released in such a rough form.  You as editors—and we—wish many people to participate in this and to get this exposure.  Many people are needed to participate in this.  Editing is guided by the intention of the Commission.  It is guided also by your commitment and your lack of personal agenda for these pieces of work that come forth. 


It is essential as you work with your twenty members that they are clear about who they are in this process.  If each one thinks they are a “Dr. Sadler,” then we will have great difficulties.  If on the other hand, they are willing to forfeit their identity and to participate as sincere students of revelation, then editing will be much easier.  We have an awareness of your hidden agendas, which you do not have.  We move forward into this revelation carefully and your question is most appropriate.  And so the diligence that you provide in editing these materials is a review for you of your intention, your commitment and your sincerity—and your own agendas. 


The outcome of these transcripts must be that the intention of the session remains intact.  To reinterpret a statement that was given by a teacher to mean something else would be a darkening of the topic.  When in doubt, it is best to go within, be still, and to commune on the answer.  It would be most helpful if you had a TR in your questioning group or as an assistant to your editing.  If it is beyond that, you can go directly to a midwayer or to a celestial teacher to assist you.  We believe that true mind, whole mind, cosmic mind, investment of Spirit of Truth, will provide you with consistent answers in how to edit these materials consistently, fairly, and completely.  You know that you have invested within you many, many spiritual guides.  You have the seven mind adjutants, the Spirit of Truth; you can call upon Christ Michael personally to assist you.  You have a celestial teacher assigned to you.  There are many who can assist you.  When you ask for clarity, just as you do in the writing that you do, it is forthcoming faithfully when you “get out of the way.”  Thank you. 


SR:  Well, I’ve had a lot of practice editing those diaries when they say things that I don’t agree with, but I am still letting them say it.  It is just so that people can read it, and if they see mistakes then they tend to throw everything out.  That was why I thought it would be important [to edit].


RAYSON:  Exactly so! . . .


RA:  Will it be possible for this new work to bridge the gap between differences of opinion on this planet, where we do not seem to be able to resolve the situation, for example in the debate over “creationism vs. evolution.”  I would like to see perhaps, something that can explain the middle road and bring both of those camps closer together.  Is that going to be possible for some of these touchy issues?


RAYSON:  This is the middle road.  You can never make a person believe a fact.  We have found among worlds that—and particularly even on this one—you cannot lead a person to understand and accept a fact, even when it is obviously in front of them, if they believe otherwise.  This approach to lead people into enlightenment is the way that Jesus brought followers into enlightenment.  He addressed each individual.  Somehow, these teachings must touch the heart of an individual who reads them, to know that there is a Sovereign God, who loves that individual—personally and intimately—and cares greatly for the course of that individual’s life, and is willing to assist that individual to the capacity that they invest in it, and will provide that even unknowingly to them when they do not.


This revelation is not a marketing campaign.  We are not renting billboard space, but appealing through this message, in a more gentle way, to those who do read, who are curious, who are interested, and who wish to know more.  You will find that through the new search engines of your Internet that these revelations will reach people who put in searches for this material.  When whole libraries are made into a digital form, then this will be accessible to anyone, all over the world.  We did not request that, for we foresaw it would be an obvious development. 


People yearn, humans yearn for compassion, understanding, and they yearn for recognition of themselves as individuals.  And they yearn for an enlivened life, for self-esteem, for a positive self-image.  When religions teach there is a harsh God and that obedience is required and sacrifice is required, without exception, without question, then there is no tolerance for that individual, for the difficulties that they have.  This message in all its forms is to approach the individual.  That is why it must be easily read by the majority of people.  The concepts must be easily provided, so that they can internalize it and “see” it within their mind.  This is a long-term effort.  We have only begun.


SR:  One problem that I see with the Urantia Book is that it has cut itself off from the New Age movement, and there is so much New Age material out there that is understandable to people.  I wonder if one of our biggest jobs would be to connect the Urantia material to the New Age material somehow and sort of re-establish that connection so it is not separate?


RAYSON:  Exactly so.  This is an intention of this work that we have.  The New Age is a huge movement on your planet; it is something that will not “go away.”  One of the intentions of these materials is to provide and appeal to those individuals who seek broader explanations for the lives they live as spiritual beings, conscious on numerous planes.  Yes, the Urantia Book did “cut its nose off to spite its face,” by removing itself from a genre which would become acceptable to a broad spectrum of educated and enlightened individuals. 


Many of the experiences that you have had spiritually are real.  They are not imaginations; you are not mentally ill.  When your loved ones pass on and return to you a few days later and speak to you, you cannot dismiss this, can you?  It is indelibly marked in your minds, for the rest of your life.  And so when you have faiths that do not accept this possibility, then there is a dissonance in your belief system and you are not sure what is real—what you have read, what you intellectualize or what you have experienced as an individual.  Yes, there are numerous phenomena, which we will be glad to discuss.  There is a whole theory that will encompass this and reveal itself in time.  For now, you have been chewing only on the leg of the elephant.  You will be quite astounded at what remains.


SR: Well, I feel that we have to start with this little step of getting questions, and then this whole big elephant will reveal itself one inch at a time.


RAYSON: Certainly.  It is much like your paintings, your pictures that you have for children—you simply give them a brush with water and they go over an area and there’s the tail, and go a little further and there’s the leg, and dab another bit of water and there is the trunk, the tusks and the ears, eyes and so on.  Yes, this will all be interconnected and eventually will make sense.  Yes, there will be intellectual disconnections with what you have believed before, only to the degree that you believe that it is a complete elephant by itself.  There is so much to reveal, which was not given to you earlier.


SR: Would it help if all the people who are coming up with questions, read as much as they could of the New Age literature, to be familiar with it, instead of just focusing on the Urantia Book with its limited concepts?


RAYSON:  Most certainly.  And we advise you to proceed this way; read greatly.  Do not swallow the book whole, so to speak, but be discerning.  There is a great deal of what you call “frou-frou material” that is attractive to less serious minds.  You are looking for a consistent concept—series of concepts—you are looking to discern parts that fit into the whole.  You may read whole volumes and only come away with three or four new ideas or concepts that fit, yet in the back of your mind you will see that the material you did not use immediately may be useful later on to connect with new material. 


All of the writers from the 1850s through the current era are not all wrong; neither do they have it all right.  The capacity of mortals to reveal exceptionally complex concepts and whole structures of understanding is insufficient.  Only through enlightened, well-read minds can you begin to get some of those “Ah-ha’s” from connecting the dots.  Do not throw out a book because some of the concepts are illogical or irrational.  Sometimes, some of the most bizarre books have wonderful ideas early on or someplace in-between the pages.  Do not be closed-minded, but be open-minded; and neither should you be accepting of all that your read. 


As you broaden your mind, work with many different concepts, some that you believe, some that you disbelieve, some that you accept, some that are unacceptable, some that are questionable and some that just seem possibly true.  You will find that through greater reading, you will have a greater mind, and you can encompass greater amounts of information.  By doing this, you are removing an inherent bias to begin with.  The bias of the closed-mind, knowing the truth and all the truth, the whole truth, within the confines of two covers, is a closed mind.  Some books are immense in their capacity to inform and to elevate an individual—the Urantia Book is one of those.  But it is one of many great books, which have come to your civilization.  Apply yourself humbly as you read.  Remove your arrogance and open your mind to the possibility that perhaps this author was also informed in some way, which will reveal itself in the words.


SR:  One example I have—I’ve read a lot of books that described the mansion worlds, that were channeled books from the 1800s on up, and they sort of flesh out concepts. The Urantia Book says “you will be assigned a residence,” but then these books go into detail about what these houses look like.  It’s fascinating. They are not all the same, but if you ask two people from earth—a man in Japan and a man in New York—to describe this world, they would give you two different descriptions yet they would both be true.  So, I wonder if all of this information is already here on our planet in all these books, and if any of that would be used in fleshing out, let’s say, the mansion world concepts—almost like the source books of the Urantia Book.  Would they already have to exist in order for you to tell us something about it?   Would we have to go and find that information, almost like finding the sources?


RAYSON:  You would be quite amazed if you had quick reference to all the books that have revealed truth about the afterlife—meaning everything that does not relate directly to the material world that you live on—whether it is in your mind or in spirit around you.  There have been revelations occurring on your planet since the beginning of conscious mind, the beginning of the first individual capable of thinking about God.  Revelation does not cease.  And how many people on your planet do live here?  Approximately six billion, I understand, and each one is capable of receiving some revelation, though most have no interest. 


Revelation can come through in many forms.  It would not be unusual for you to have read something in a science fiction book that may fit with aspects of the Urantia Book.  It would not be unusual for you to receive great insights from reading esoteric books, by those writers from the 1850’s and forward.  What we are saying is that you do not need to read all of these to ask your questions.  We will assist you as best we can, with the capacity of the mind that we work through, to help you coordinate the truths that come to you.  You will find as you read more and more, that your mind will be able to ask more and broader questions that try to encompass these unusual sources of information in revelation.  The mind is a powerful instrument.  Even the one you have is quite grand in its capability and its curiosity, its outreach to bring in to its conceptual self, missing pieces.  When you earnestly seek in co-creative curiosity, with your guardian angel or celestial teacher or midwayer, do not be surprised when some of this material just suddenly appears and is introduced to you from a friend, or it comes through the mail.  You will have many insights that come to you, which do not directly come from the material that you read, but are developments from your mind and from the insights that you receive—in other words, revelation from higher sources.  Have I gone off the track in answering your question?


SR:  I can’t remember my exact question, but it sounds pretty good!  . . . Oh yes, I asked about the mansion worlds, because to me it is not a curiosity thing. If you go on a trip to China, you go to the travel agent and you get an itinerary. So I think that the more we can know about what happens when we die, the more it would affect people’s lives, and so is the mansion world a good topic to ask about when the time comes?


RAYSON:  Most definitely. You will find that many of your curiosity questions, which were denied to you before, will be open.  Part of your instructions are to be able to construct your questions concerning curiosity issues, so that it contributes to your mortal journey.


SR:  When the Urantia Book stated that we can consult the registry and look up the people who have died before us, it was said in the days before we had computers.  Would that be like a big computer that we go to and, punch into a big Google search engine or something like that?  We would have to have a way to find these people.  Things like that I am just dying to know what it is going to be like.


RAYSON:  Let me share with you that your “Google” was not really very famous five years ago, was it?  And look how your consciousness to encompass vast sources of information has grown with this development and its contemporaries.  When you go to the Hall of Registry, you will have gone there with an intention.  When you go to the registry hall, you will enter and you will be greeted by one who seems to anticipate what you seek.  But the information and the sources that are operating there operate here in the same way.  You must ask a question to get an answer, even if the being who is helping you, already knows the question. 


You may say, “I’m looking for Bill Hernandez,” and you will need to say no more, for in the registry, [in] your consciousness, the imprint of this personality exists. Your helper will assist you to go to—a “machine” is far too crude a word to use for this intelligent, living entity—that will help you find the registry for your friend.  As well, when you ask, you do not ask, “Well, I want the full history on Bill Hernandez.  Where does he live, where has he been?  Is he in detention again, or has he mended his ways?” for that truly is none of your business.  But if you ask, “I would like to meet my friend; it has been a long time,” and of course, this heart connection that you have, will be very evident both when you arrive and when you speak your question.  Of course, your concern is for your friendship, the companionship, which you shared, and yes, this will be revealed to you, not so much on a “screen” but on a pedestal that is similar to the one that you stand on, where you see your friend.  And you will be invited to contact him to see if he wants to visit with you. 


The interface of these technologies are living, they are intelligent, they are knowing; they encompass mind far past what you are used to.  There is an intuitive capacity for these “machine entities” to assist you in ways, which are totally unconscious even to your own mind.  Yet, there is a reservation in this capacity, as it is minded, to be careful of whom it entertains.  You will not be able to fully appreciate or use the capacity of this instrument, until well into your morontial career.  The capacity of many of these instruments is at the level of morontial beings that are about to make their transition from the Morontia schools of Salvington to the early Spirit schools of Orvonton. 


JB:  What happens if the relationship, the person that we are searching for doesn’t arrive there until a further dispensation?  Some of these happen only every one thousand years don’t they?  (Rayson:  That is correct.)  And will we be informed, something like, “Well, sorry but so-and-so hasn’t arrived yet?”


RAYSON:  It will be something quite similar to that statement, yes.  It will be revealed to you clearly, though it will not be necessary to tell you why, for what occurred in that individual’s life to have detained them on their planet of origin.  Do you understand?


JB:  Well, I don’t quite understand when you say, “planet of origin,” I guess I was thinking something more like, “That soul hasn’t been rematerialized yet.”


RAYSON:  This statement may be a simple as, “Your friend is awaiting the next dispensation before they appear.”  (Thank you.)


MP:  Would you also be able to tell if someone has chosen not to go on and continue the morontia worlds?


RAYSON:  If their existence lies within the registry, yes.


SR:  I’ve read the Urantia Book over and over and over and I believe—and other people do not agree with me here—but I believe that anyone who is born of the spirit and has a Thought Adjuster that they are aware of and that they are cooperating with, automatically do survive and wake up three days later on the mansion worlds.  I know a lot of people who think that even though they have a Thought Adjuster and are trying to do God’s will, they are still going to have this thousand year sleep.  I think that that needs to be cleared-up, because people are living in fear that they are not going to survive right away, when I don’t think they need to be fearful.


RAYSON:  We agree.  (Pause.)  Was there more that you wished besides that brief answer?


SR:  No, I like it that you agree with that!  Some things like that are so clear to one person and not to others, and those things could be cleared up, by statements made or something that can really wipe away that doubt.


RAYSON:  The explanation is manifold; I will give you a shortened version. The way forward for those individuals who are “born of the spirit,” meaning they engage, accept, believe and their intention and their will is to do God’s will and to move on to Paradise, surely they will not be held back from their progress.  Unwarranted detention is not progressive for the soul, is it?  Certainly not.  We have in our instructions, not to promote easy transit to the morontial states.  Our instructions are to encourage you to continue learning, rather than simply sitting back and saying, “Ho hum.  I will get there anyhow, I have a Thought Adjuster and my progress is assured.”  This would be detrimental to your soul growth and in fact would hold you back from forward placement on the morontial worlds and the classrooms thereof. 


We encourage everyone to engage his or her spiritual progress willfully, powerfully, intentionally, and sincerely.  Be committed to your course.  Be committed to your will to do God’s will.  Be committed to grow, and in that growth, trust that you will be translated on your third day, to the morontial worlds.  Your reconstruction is all but assured.  Your reconstruction in that brief time is assured by your willingness to believe, to accept, to know that you are a son or daughter of the Living God, Christ Michael, and that you are at your essence, in potential union with your Thought Adjuster.  You are a being of potential fusion with your Thought Adjuster.  When you live your life with this awareness, this consciousness, do not be afraid of tomorrow; do not be afraid of your death; do not be afraid of being a sleeping survivor, for we have to wake you up soon so you can get busy learning some more.


JB:  If there are those who don’t have a concept or don’t think in terms of doing God’s will, but want to live their lives according to what is “right,” isn’t that in essence pretty much the same thing?  I mean they don’t phrase it in those terms. Maybe they aren’t sure that there really is a God, but yet there is something inside them that compels them to want to do what is best, what’s right, as they understand it?


RAYSON:  It is most sad for us to tell you that there are many good people—moral, ethical people of high standards—who will be sleeping survivors, waiting to be awakened on the mansions worlds after a long sleep.  What detains them [as sleeping survivors] is simply that they have not activated their willingness to cooperate and to coordinate their lives with the will of God.  If you have heard the message of the Master, of Jesus, if you have heard that salvation is available to you, if you have been enlightened, if you have been made aware, then you have responsibility to engage that message or not. 


Whether you live rightfully or not, the difference is in whether you commit yourself to the higher planes of your life and are yet to develop.  We encourage everyone who hears the message, or who has heard about Jesus, who has heard about God on your world, to engage this seriously, for it is serious business.  Can you imagine the confusion of these moral, ethical individuals when they awaken and wonder why they have slept so long, when they become conscious of that long era?  They will wonder, and then they will know, that they did not make the decision to join their fellow believers.  Does this answer your question?


JB:  Well, yes and no.  I am thinking of a certain individual that I know very superficially, a psychiatrist who has devoted his life to helping children, but he says he can’t believe in God because of what happened in the Holocaust, the idea that a loving God couldn’t allow this to happen.  Yet, it seems that he’s a very kindly man who has sought to serve people.  I don’t really know enough about his thinking, but I hope that clarifies my question?


RAYSON:  Certainly. He has evolved in his service to others; he has yet to evolve in his service to his Creator. There lies the difference.  (Thank you.)


JE:  Is the significance of waiting a thousand years really important or not?

Does it mean that they enter the morontia state at a lower class level, so to speak?  Or is there some other differentiation caused by that long wait?  Time is endless, once you are passed on from here.


RAYSON:  The duration of the time is not relevant, for the one who awakens, it is just as though they had gone to sleep and woke up the next morning.  What will occur, as you have been informed already, is that these individuals will be awakened and they will [be] tenderly made aware of where they are.  They will be placed in a special remedial class to be made aware of the eternal parameters of their existence, of the potentials that are before them.  Every opportunity will be made to engage them to accept [the] responsibility of saying, yes, they wish to move ahead.  Every possibility will be made to assist them in not saying “No, I do not believe in this; life has been too painful; I want out.”  After those individuals, who have [declined the opportunity after] further examinations of that [choice] by other bodies with those responsibilities, that person will pass out of existence as though they never were. 


You will not find them in the registry; you will not find their presence or their name.  But what remains is what they provided and what they gave to God the Supreme, through their life.  You and others who are believers, who study, who strive to learn how to live a moral and ethical life and of service, you will “test out,” so to speak, to higher classes.  You already accept your eternal journey. 


You, however, will be given time to re-orient yourself for there will be an amnesia effect that will slowly be dissolved as protective covering to your consciousness.  In all cases of all beings, there is great care that you are not shocked, that you are not made disposed in a way that makes you unfriendly to your career.  Just as we do not shock you with truth that we could give you now, so too, when you reawaken, you will have this muffled feeling of awareness about you.  Just as children learn in close environment and then move into other rooms, so too, you will do the same.  Your awareness of morontial senses will slowly begin to develop.  It will take a great deal of time for you to fully recall all of the positive parts of your life. 


And only through careful introduction to your life —viewing it in great detail, in sound, in color and motion, in another registry hall of your life  —will you be exposed to your decisions, which made powerful effect in your life, and from which you will learn great wisdom.  These too, will be revealed to you slowly.  Your lives of decisions that were harmful to you, some of these you call “great sins,” these are simply experiences that were unproductive or highly detrimental to yourself, and worse yet, detrimental to others.  What you must get from this exposure is an understanding and an appreciation, a way of giving these experiences value on the morontial level, for you to take in fully the mota that these are to tell you.  You will be guided; you will be cared for; you will not be exposed to harsh realities.  Even well meaning humans, caring parents, ofttimes expose their children prematurely to [harsh] realities of their planet.  Do this gently with your children.  Just because there are evil or ugly realities of your world does not mean that children must have the blinders pulled off their eyes suddenly, and they are harmed by this.  So too, we do not do that with you, even when it concerns your own life. Does this help?   


MP:  So in other words, we don’t just have a life review and that’s the end of it and go on.  We continue to learn from the experiences that we have had here and it is part of our education?


RAYSON:  Most definitely!  You will get to review these many times.  You will find that in discussion with your social group, your peers, your small educational clique, those who are in your immediate educational clan, you will review these events and situations many times, for as you reveal them, others will get lessons from your experiences.  This is the way of living many experiences vicariously.  Yet, with care, you will be invited to understand fully, how these came about through and with this individual and the permission of your joint guardians, as you go to the Registry Hall of History, which will show their history and this lesson, if you do not fully understand it as it was related by them in your conversations and discussions.  And you will have many, many uproariously laughing occasions when you recall your foibles.  You will not believe how stupid you were to have done some of the things that you have done!  You will chastise yourself and belittle yourself and slap yourself in the forehead, crying on your knees in laughter at being so silly.  (Much laughter.) 


SR:  I think we are already doing that!  (More laughter.)


RAYSON:  Then you are ahead of it.  You know what to look forward to.  What I am saying is that no stone will go unturned, where you can learn.  If this is from a friend’s life, then those stones will be turned. You will have opportunities to role-play; you will have opportunities in many different configurations to thoroughly learn these lessons.  The intention of this is for you to thoroughly squeeze out every part of the juice of every “grape” of your life, so that there is nothing left; so that it is not even moist with experience; that you have every bit of the pulp that you can get out of it and enjoy it in the rest of your eternal career.  Why is this so?  This is so because your lives as mortals are so rich in such a brief period of time, that there is so much material that you can decompress in your afterlife and understand more thoroughly then.  You think you forgive yourself now!  You will have quite a time of that later on.  (Change of tape.)


This is a lesson that perhaps Sondjah would relate to you: Think of all the wonderful social occasions that you have had in all your life, where you have laughed uproariously, where you have wept with joy, where you have learned so much, where you have been touched deep to the quick, by the experiences of another.  Think of all those occasions in your life, and then think of all the harm and all the injury and all the abuse and all the neglect that you have ever felt, being wiped away, and all that remains are wonderful experiences.  And you can relate your difficult experiences to others in safe surroundings, confident that they will not belittle you, and yes, unfortunately, not everyone is quite that mature.  Truly, the morontial life is not absent of hurtful feelings or hurtful statements given by others.  Remember, you are in a learning environment; others may not have learned the lessons of tolerance.  Many carry with them great egos yet. 


You will be protected at all instances from truly hurtful experiences.  We do not want to have your life bent in its growth, but you will not be fully protected from all instances where you may be made little of by one who has a greater ego.  And you in turn—how would you handle that?  Would you gravitate to their level and belittle them, telling them how small they are for having said that?  Maybe you both would go to detention!  (Loud laughter.)  We wish to pull the cover from the reality of your morontial experience—it is not harsh; it is extremely friendly; it is incredibly supportive; it is helpful.  When you think you have no help, just as you do now, then you do not.  But truly, the helpers you have now will be visible to you.  You will have a teacher/peer, who will assist you, a one-on-one tutor who has completed the class earlier.  You will have your Guardian Angel and your Thought Adjuster is your ever-present companion. 


Remember, when in doubt, go within; ask for answers and they will be revealed.  But in this case, you will be told, when you ask.  Not all of your questions will be answered; you may receive a Socratic question in return: What do you think? What are your choices?  How would you handle this?  What do you think a senior teacher would say?  And that persona, that entity, will be with you, visible.  Your questions that are serious, which no one can answer in the group, will be addressed by your teacher, and answered and explained to you, that you fully understand it.  No limitation will be made upon your learning, whether in time or thoroughness.  The care that you wished to have as a child as you grew up, in your mortal experience, when you were left to learn on your own, will never occur, except when there is a purpose for that to occur. 


And when you are stumped, dumbfounded, and you [have] said, “What is this about, is this a review?  How do I get the answer to this?  I don’t have an answer! —you will be helped.  You will be thoroughly, completely, compassionately, energetically helped.  You will not be given answers quickly or readily, except those, which cannot be gotten through experience.  Information is information.  Data is data.  But experience is hallowed!  And the learning experience is revered and respected, and we will not withhold this from you at all, not one whit!  You will be given the opportunity to experience every possible learning opportunity that you may ever wish to.


JB:  Sounds pretty good!


RA:  Sure beats sitting on a cloud, playing a harp for eternity!  (Much laughter.)


SR:  I see, like your psychiatrist friend, who has all this wrong teaching that is preventing him from believing in God, I see our whole purpose in helping with this revelatory work, is to help people like that, to understand, to have the right teaching presented in such a way that it can overcome the wrong teaching.  I want to know all of it for myself too.  I know where I’m going, but I think of all these poor people who are living in ignorance and don’t know what we know and it’s our job to help them to understand it.  That is what I see is the purpose of this [project] is to help those people.


RAYSON:  Exactly so.  Why would intelligent individuals make decisions that counteract or work against their infinite ascendant career?  Oftentimes what is missing in your equation as mortals here is the lack of understanding of their origins as a mortal.  Also, you do not understand their genetic structure, their race memory in their genes.  You do not understand their heredity from their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, generations back.  You do not understand or see the pain that was caused to them by erroneous parental roles, or models that were missing.  If you have a problem with authority now, you surely will have one later.  The intention of these revelations is to augment the compassionate message that is inherent in the Urantia Book.  It is a means to appeal to those individuals who do not understand.  It is a means to invest in the ignorance so that ignorance does not exist.  Ignorance is a void, it is a vacuum saying, “I need!”  This is a message to assist those to fill that need.  What is so sad is when great minds, great spirits, great personalities do not even feel their need.  You must be that message carrier!  To touch their heart and to enliven them to be in touch with their inner love, their inner sources, which are there waiting for them. 


Let us entertain only a few more questions, as the time passes by and these individuals tire.


DB:  . . . Would you like to give us some guidance on how you would like us to proceed methodology-wise, to gain more insight and provide more insight into the writings of the Urantia Book?


RAYSON:  We are currently engaged in that process now.  The methodology is cumbersome at best, right now; it is difficult having so few venues to work with.  It is enhanced by good leadership and by thoughtful administration.  The methodologies will be plodding as they are now for quite some time.  Diligent minds, careful consideration and lack of nit picking will help you greatly.  Open your minds to Nebadonia’s influence; ask her to participate with you.  The methodology is co-creative, and when you are by yourself, do not forget this, and do not forget it when you join together.  Insure that there is a dedication of intention, when you do come together.  This will assist you in being receptive to outside influences that are positive and are helpful to you. 


Until then, until you have greater experience, be patient with yourself and with others through this.  You have yet to see many personalities bump noses, as they are wont to do.  And to those that want to assist greatly, and are so energetic, we ask them to tune their pace to the cadence of others.  For you must step together for this to work well with us.


SR:  Will the celestials lead the right people to those who are organizing with me?  I am just kind of trusting that the people who should be involved in this are being brought into it.  I just thought they would come if they were meant to participate.


RAYSON:  We have done a good job so far, have we not?  (Yes.)  Trust the process, but also carry the message, “we now invite you to begin another group.”  You will find that twenty is quite a maximum number to work well with, over the distances that you have.  Even twenty, who met in person, would break into committees and work independently, coming together with the larger group.  This may be something that you wish to do at this time, as you entertain different strains of questions.  This sort of process could take on many more members if they were willing to participate in a committee.  A committee is not really a good name for these smaller groups, for they are really teams.  They are teams that are working conjointly with us.  Though they may have decided to accept the delegation of a strain of thinking, they are not alone in this process, but they must emulate the larger group and the larger effort of this whole revelation. 


By making the message more widespread and appealing to more people to apply or to participate, make sure that there is a vacancy for them to sit at the table.  Ofttimes capable individuals withdraw at a distance, waiting for a space to be empty.  It may be that you can create this space by having subordinate groups for them to join in.  Offering the opportunity to participate in lines of questions may afford you the opportunity to express this invitation to those who are holding back.  Also, you eventually will have bodies of individuals who have little in common with the Urantia Book history, but who have read other esoteric materials as well.  They are not excluded.  We have no exclusion, except for those who work against this good.  When you are ready, send the invitation to us and to our midwayer helpers and you can be assured that there will be a forthcoming response from your mortal friends.


SR:  I’ve noticed even in the first round of questions it has been sort of divided.  I can see it grouped into some categories for more scientific minds, while others just want to know more about Jesus, and still others are more interested in the mansion worlds.  I can see where the different personalities come through and where it divides along those lines.


RAYSON:  Very definitely.  You will find that some good minds do not like to compete with others who have ideas [on topics] that take time away from what they are interested in.  Therefore, the smaller groups of like-minded and like-interested individuals would be helpful.


SR:  My next assignment was, after they had all turned in their questions, I asked them to read each other’s questions and comment on them. We are doing that right now, to see if everyone understands the question, or if they think it has already been answered, or if they would phrase it differently.  It was an exercise to get us started.


RAYSON:  That is a good way to start.  Do not proceed with this too far, however, as individuals tend to be comparative in their analysis, and comparative analysis is not helpful when it comes to personalities.  The enthusiasm you seek will be assisted by individuals who want to participate in the administrative functions of your group.  You may throw a “wild card” at them, by asking them how they would like to proceed, but do not leave the question at that, as a good leader provides avenues for their expression.  Throwing open a wild card with no directions or examples will provide you with a way of shattering your group.  But ask them whether there are individuals who would like to entertain categories of questions, and you will find that there will be a joining together of those minds.  We feel you will find your group to be more productive when they are able to speak with individuals who are like-minded.  You have found already that the large group is like-minded in that they have a common interest in pursuing this Second Revelation.  Now find further subdivisions of commonalities, and soon you will see that there are not enough people to fill up the categories.  Soon you will find that you will have many categories that people express an interest in and wish to participate in several. 

. . . Thank you for your participation.  You will find that you will need a general session as this, occasionally.  In some way, these must be accommodated, so that you can get a global perspective and then go home to do your homework and develop more specific questions.  This has been very helpful for us as well, and you can be assured of the Melchizedeks writing up lesson plans for everyone.  (Group:  All right!)  Us!  Blessings to you, dear friends.  I do not call you children for you have grown out of your britches.  You have taken on the mantle of apprentices.  We wish you to wear your humble colors well, as you work with your peers in so many different locations.  Be humble in all regards, for good teachers are always humble.  Good day.
