The Power of Prayer, a Guest Post from Oscar, the 11:11 Progress Group

Prayer art “Today there are a lot of people in this world who are working for the establishment of the Kingdom of Heaven. Few among them enjoy the fame and glory of being considered among ‘the great men and women of history’. However, those who work tirelessly, and their motivation does not lie in their being accepted by the masses, achieve great spiritual progress for themselves. Those who live the Will of the Father are contributing to the creation of the realities that His will desires to create.

“Some of you believe that you need to be in a position of greater influence in order to be able to guide others towards better goals. Let me tell you that the best way to appeal to the human soul is through the presence of the Thought Adjuster. Focus your intent directly on the hearts of those you wish to influence. Let your Thought Adjuster be the one that establishes contact with the divine presence in others, expressing your wishes with the highest measure of truth, beauty, and goodness. Every effort you make in this fashion will never be wasted.

Remember the power of prayer, because through the circuit of the Father you can reach any creature in the universe, even if this connection may not be direct, or even conscious, for any of the parties involved. God is present inside you – in each and every one of you – and through His presence in you, you can reach any other personal being in existence.

“How do you think our Father works in this world? Does He show up at United Nations meetings to tell you what you need to do? The Father speaks directly to the hearts and the minds of His creatures. Then, it is up to them to decide what path they will take. In this world, you can likewise work in this fashion, with your love for your peers, and your desire to create a better world through prayer.

“All of you who work in your respective communities, and circles of influence, know that you are not impotent when the time comes to promote the changes you want to see in this world. Live the very change you wish to see, and project your love and your positive energy to those who lead you – the ones you have elected to express your collective decisions. Work with your hands, but remember that your prayers and your love can reach all the way to Paradise itself, and know that you have the support and the power of the Creator Father of all beings and things.”

Teamwork is the Watchword of the Universe, A Guest Post from the 11:11 Progress Group

Urantia, May 28, 2012
Teacher: The Beloved One
Subject: “A Lesson on Teamwork”

Received by Lytske

The Beloved One: “Teamwork is an art that requires mutual co-operation. One could see teamwork as a form of co-dependence, when one has to depend on others that certain tasks be accomplished independently. Inter-dependence is a more accurate term. I assure you that the universe, yea all of creation, depends on the service of all beings that inhabit it. In fact, teamwork is the watchword of the universe, as each being fulfills that particular function, which no one else fulfills. All creatures must necessarily fulfill their personal life function. The sooner humans find out what it is they are here for, the sooner they will find themselves in harmony and cooperation with the universe itself, feeling at peace with their inner selves also.

“It is an interesting thing for Me to watch some of you slowly becoming more aware of the important part you play on the stage of life, doing this without aggrandizement of ego importance, always reminding yourselves that the work is important, the self is not. Such an attitude is a must for successful cooperation with others, and it is truly a rarity to find a measure of such understanding cooperation between two or more people — working independent of each other, and yet slowly coming to a mutual understanding that this is a requirement for growing their individual souls, to work as a team, and at the same time investing in the growth of their souls for life eternal.

“Such partnerships will eventually become more commonplace although at first certain things or issues are not clearly understood by either one, or both, or even all. It is a matter of sublime trust that whatever you are engaged in will ultimately not only benefit yourselves but also countless others. No true endeavor ever goes un-noticed. Even when separated by great distances, such partnerships can occur, thus the sum total of a lone working servant’s achievement in the service of his/her Creator, can become exponentially more important, even when the work is carried out on the other side of the globe in a mutual, unspoken and unwritten agreement. More and more may join in, not one knowing the other, yet all may be bound together by the common purpose to work for the progress of all. A small group can become larger and larger, as the silent call goes forth to be of service to the upliftment of the planet. This is teamwork of the realm of spirit manifesting itself on the material world.

“However, the greatest service anyone can render is by seeking the Stillness in their heart, to affect cooperation with their heavenly Partner within. Indeed, to affect such a measure of cooperation that, unwittingly at first, they become a mighty partner in the most important teamwork anyone can engage in — a partnership with the Indwelling Adjuster of their Thoughts. This is the ultimate partnership in teamwork one can achieve in one’s material existence. This, eventually, is a requirement for all humans but to affect this of your free will, driven by an insatiable hunger to be of service is the triumphant culmination of a life well lived. Here dwells the greatest satisfaction amid the storms of life — the inner feeling that you, too, can cooperate with your Spark of God within. Rest assured, you could not wish for a better Partner than the One who lives right inside of you. Trust and have faith that in time this partnership will become more divine in teamwork and mutual cooperation.”

Disappointments and Failed Expectations, a Guest Post from the 11:11 Progress Group

Michigan, USA, October 16, 2011
Teacher Ophelius
Received by Chris

Teacher Ophelius: “Today’s message is about disappointments and failed expectations. Many times throughout your life there will be disappointments and failed expectations, even at the height of the most positive circumstances and feelings of surety that things and events will materialize as planned in your mind which would benefit you and others at a time that is most auspicious, yet somehow roadblocks and inopportune events bar the way to these predictable outcomes that perplex and dishearten your outlook. These things happen for reasons that you may not fully realize now, but will clearly see later on as alternative paths and outcomes materialize to teach lessons or exceed the expected outcome of the previously laid plans.

“There are many, many things going on in the unseen realms that shape the path of those who walk in truth and light, and many of you, my friends, are lovingly guided into the paths of righteousness by what would seem to you as harsh lessons. How many of you can look back on your life and see the hand of Spirit shaping and guiding by not giving you what you want in the time you wanted it. For a child will almost always choose candy over a nutritious meal, and it is the wise parent that will always give the healthy food first and allow the sweet treat in moderation after the body is lovingly nourished. This is how the Creator builds character in us. Spirit loves and nurtures, and fosters our progress and perfection in incremental amounts that we are ready for as we learn and make decisions that allow the next phase of our soul development to unfold in ways that will benefit us most in the overall journey to perfection.

“Many times did the Master Jesus dash the hopes of his apostles and disciples to pieces at the height of their expectations because he was wise and farseeing, knowing the outcome of what unbridled fantasies would produce and what distorted viewpoints would develop as a result of giving in to a sign and miracle seeking generation. Only in retrospect after He departed from your world did the meanings and purposes of the Master’s methods prove wise and valuable — truths that would serve the many for generations to come.

“Only by the pruning of the vine will good fruit come, and so it is for you, my friends, that you must sometimes be patient and allow events and opportunities to present themselves according to divine timing which will prove to be the greatest benefit to you and others — benefits that maximize soul progression (healthy food), not necessarily material needs and wants (candy), keeping in mind that the sweet treat will be given in moderation out of divine love, and most often does the delayed reward or outcome exceed your greatest expectations when you are prepared to meet the nurturing opportunity.”

Peace to you,
The Circle of Seven

Divine Justice, a Guest Post Received by Lytske, 11:11 Progress Group

Urantia, May 4, 2012.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Divine Justice.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Be assured that I know how hesitant you are to even start typing, as this new subject frightens you somewhat. The reason for this is that you were raised in the belief of the wrath of God, and that God was a stern judge. These are puerile emotions which only humans indulge in. How wrong those teachings!

“Still it remains in those records of old. You recall how you had difficulty in believing all those legends you were spoon-fed. Remember how many stories in the bible made as little sense to you as to many others. Therefore, the time has come to shine a new light upon justice, specifically Divine Justice, so that honest and sincere souls may feel at ease about the ‘coming judgment’, rather than living in fear, and like the olden seer John the Baptist expressed it, ‘flee from the wrath to come’.

“Being well versed in the bible and now with the enlarged revelation of your text, the Urantia Book, it will become a lot easier for you to understand how Divine Justice operates, as all mortals are their own judge and jury, needing to forgive themselves and others, as God automatically forgives those who forgive all.

“Your studies will allow you to acquire a better understanding of how Divine Justice operates in the time-space creations. It is on all the peopled planets of space where such lessons are learned. Lessons create understanding and understanding leads to wisdom. Life is therefore precious and the lessons are chosen by the mortals themselves, whether they are conscious of their own choices or not. Irrespective, life is, it flows, and progresses, regardless of the choices you make.

“Sooner, more often later, the dawning comes that, yes, perhaps you could have made better choices, or behaved more appropriately, or not have acted impulsively, or said something thoughtlessly, which may have caused misery for self and or others, and such performance would hardly be seen as doing the will of God, but consider this…

“You will see now, dear one, how important that one prayer is: ‘Not my will be done but yours’. This is Divine Justice in its purest form. By doing His will, you will become more conscious of the fact that God does not judge at all, he only forgives. This is true justice, as everything is based on love. Even the universes with all the myriad planets are created from nothing but love.

“Such is the extent of Divine Justice that He allows each mortal to make up his or her own mind about how they will conduct themselves throughout their precious lives. Eventually they will see it God’s way and adhere to that one commandment to become perfect even as God is perfect. Such is the love of God that He patiently waits, allowing each child to return their love back to Him.

“The eternal truth remains that when you decide to do, and abide by, God’s will, which is the way with the most love in it, you will be in the flow of pure creation and be living by Divine Justice.”

The Struggle Within, a Guest Post from the 11:11 Progress Group

“The Struggle Within” is inspiration from George and Sunny Barnard, of the © 11:11 Progress Group. Here is a link to their website: Akashic Contruct.

Queensland, Australia, January 12, 2007
Gabriel, the Bright and Morning Star
Subject: “The Struggle Within.”

Received by Anne.

Gabriel: “Heed the injustices of the events in the world around you as you watch the news, read the paper, listen to all that is said of the goings on around you.  Contemplate this for a moment.  Reflect on how this makes you feel, and how you have felt in the past about such news.

“Now I ask you to look deeper inside yourself, to know that these worries of the world’s struggles are also your own struggles, simply because these same wars, these same struggles, go on inside you, daily.  They are simply struggles of a different nature as your mind argues with your heart.  The mind constantly goes to battle and conducts war against the true wants and desires of the heart.  You fight against yourself, just as the world fights against itself.

“When you think of world peace, how calming and wonderful that would be, know too, that you can have this peace within when you stop the raging war against yourself.  There is a great need to accept and understand that the inner battle is only prolonged when you continue to dislike or even hate yourself for all your perceived faults.  Know that there are no faults within you.  There is a purpose to everything within your experiences; that you be continuously guided to find the truth within, to the path that is your journey — one of constant pleasure, not of pain.

“To suffer the emotions of guilt, shame, regret, all bring about the inner war. Let go of the grip these emotions have on you by allowing the peace of your heart to shine. Have an understanding of these emotions; that you have them in your experiences, and therefore you have the true appreciation of all that is available to you in the way of positive-ness. Then, do what it takes to move yourself to a deeper, more meaningful place within.

“All war with negative emotions is wasted experience.  Allow them to be felt, acknowledge that the feeling is there, and know it is not necessary that you hold onto them.  The negative is only ever experienced so that you can be shown the way to truth and love.  Let the past be the past, for even yesterday is past.  Let your today shine forth that you can be all you are within this moment of your time.

“Always know from your heart that the only person you can control is yourself. Control is not power over the self; it is simply having the understanding of your experienced emotions.  Treat yourself always as you would treat others.  Forgive yourself for all your perceived wrongdoings, as you would another. Be forever kind and gentle with self as a new babe in this time of reconciliation with your heart. Love yourself as I love you, in the forever gentleness of pure, unconditional love.  Forever peace, my dear ones.  That is all.”

The Game of Life, a Guest Post from the 11:11 Progress Group

There are days when my faith sags–kind of like my body 🙂–and I think the wonderful new world is not coming, that instead the whole world is lost to darkness. On those days, I go outside at night and send my heart’s longings up to the stars and then an email like this one from the 11:11 Progress Group arrives in my In Box. May you also be blessed by these words.

Thank you, George and Sunny, for all you do for your human family.

Monjoronson: “When you are born into this world, you find yourself naked and alone, and divorced from all you know and comprehend.  The journey of your life is to piece together that from which you came, that which you are, and that which you will become.

There are veils around you in all ways, forging a barrier between you and your true Divine Self, between you and your colleagues, and between you and your own sense of the reality that sits beneath that which you perceive; yet with care, effort and love within your heart, you start to chip away at those veils to discover yourself and the wondrous entities that share their worlds with you, forging the veil into a new structure, no longer a barrier, but a device to allow you the wonder of experience life fully on earth.

Do not be distressed by your apparent separation from that which you feel as home, but instead delight in the glory of all that is on Earth, which you are unable to experience in any other place within this universe.  If you saw already what the true nature of reality was, then you would be stripped of the wondrous motion towards perfection and of the childlike delight formed when discovering that which is new to your perceptions.

Think of this life as a game, a game in which there are no losers and many, many different paths to the final stage.  It’s a game of exploration, of fun, of joy and of sorrow, and like all good games it would not be exciting without fear, apprehension and anxiety at times.

These moments help to stand you in good stead for a future as Divine Being, to empathize and understand those still encompassed within the lowest planes of the ascendant mortals.

Know every move has been calculated and its potential assessed, though it remains your own will, which dictates which potential is followed. We delight in progressing our paths alongside you, watching the way you tackle emergency and trauma, and comforting you when it all becomes too much.

Know that your efforts, always valiant, are noted and recorded, and when the time comes to look back on your lessons you will often see that those which form the greatest part of your ‘learnings’ are the ones that passed unnoticed within your own times.

In all that you are, and all that you can be, you are perfected beings finding the way of will in a world of dichotomy and inconsistency.  Each turn you take is a marvel and part of God’s plan to experience how life becomes itself when separated from all that it already knows.

Feed from the light of the sun, find sustenance in your communion with others, and look to the heavens for inspiration and fortitude.  We are by your side and we will never leave you until your journey on this plane is through.

By the morning, all will be clear.”

“Where is Home?” A Special Guest Post from Ophelius and the 11:11 Progress Group

I am delighted to celebrate one year of blogging with a very special guest post that arrived in an email from George and Sunny Barnard.  They publish heart-healing posts at The 1111 Progress Group that bring to light the never-ending love of the Divine, and the magnitude of aid the human race is receiving now from higher beings.
