“ TO  SUFFER ”
Is to live…to Know
the depths of grief beneath
Pinnacles of Joy…
There we Meet….you ….. I…
strangers on the street…
nameless faces sharing….
hallow steps and soundless words…
leading…..to Each Other…
Regaining shattered dreams
and loves long lost –
one by one…we Suffer….
for…
Compassion.

Asheville, NC, US of A, April 22, 2018.
 Teacher: Ophelius.
 Subject: “Don’t Throw Out the Baby with the Bath Water.”
Message received by Chris Maurus.
Teacher Ophelius: “Dear Students on the Path, I would like to address some concerns this one and some others have about the continuity of this “Co-creative Teaching Alliance (CTA)” we have between mansion world teachers and human receivers during this Correcting Time. It may seem to you that we have talked exhaustively about a great many topics and ideas designed to help you develop a relationship with divinity and how to expand your minds and grow weightier souls, and so we have. Most of the messages given are ‘timeless’ and can be helpful in any age and with any culture — being human is the only prerequisite.
“Let me make clear that this CTA is not what you may know as the ‘Teaching Mission.’ That was a ‘pilot program’ of discovery for both the celestial realms and for humans living on a world emerging from the isolation of rebellion. From that program we learned a great many things about how to engage you, and we continue to learn from you. We have seen tremendous growth in some of you, and many of you have ‘stepped up’ and taken on the co-creative work of correction during these tumultuous times. This is and continues to be our intention — that through this alliance we shall sustain the influx of information, knowledge, and techniques for developing individuals that shall, at some point, take these lessons and apply them in their personal lives. From this same group we see that some will begin teaching the ideas in these lessons to a greater multitude — through books, conferences, and programs.
“It is also intended that the CTA will bridge the gap between the dispensations and which shall eventually lead to contact with the Trinity Teacher Sons. As a world begins its ascent to the age of Light and Life, the influx of information and contact between the realms will increase — not decrease. I admonish you not to crystallize in your mind how this will happen — we have contact with humans all over your world and use whatever techniques work best to engage them, which is always changing because each generation will bring with it new potentials for engagement.
“It is also important that we maintain a flow of new information on how to ‘adjust’ to new energies as Urantia adjusts to Her Supreme transformation which affects human consciousness. Even now, the energetic changes are affecting the way your Thought Adjusters work in your minds. Be mindful that whatever changes are necessary to bring your world to Light and Life can only come about co-creatively — you must participate in it and so we shall always be at the ready to support you. To sustain and grow this effort, we need more individuals to make their selves available to us.
“As much as the lessons teach how to grow weightier souls, they also teach how to prepare for contact with us and we admonish you all to review these lessons and take up the cause for your world — to participate in the Great Plan in this life, which in and of itself, positions you for even greater service as you ascend the mansion worlds and beyond — the ripples grow into great waves.
“The CTA works with all levels of need and serves to feed the intellectual palates of a diverse population. For some, the lessons may seem repetitive and like baby food, and to others it may be difficult to understand — yet as diverse as you all are, there is something for everyone there. There is a saying on your world, ‘Don’t throw out the baby with the bath water.’ Take from it those things that ring true for you where you are on your spiritual journey.
“I hope to have more of these ‘check-in’ messages as the spiritual landscape changes.
“Peace to you,
 “The Circle of Seven.”
Receiver’s note: The mnemonic “CTA” was given to emphasize that both humans and celestials are teachers in this time of correction — that we rely on each other to bring about the changes necessary to fulfill the Will of the Creator. They provide the food, and together with our Father Fragments, we digest it and break it down and use it for the energy needed to sustain our world spiritually and materially.

....when I speak of there being 'much to do'.....I speak of this very process....of turning Within...to Source..Within....... Silent your mind..for it has many Skills beyond 'mere thought'......and only in laying down 'thinking mind'...does the vast expanse of Cosmic Mind have 'room for entrance' into your own experience....
"SKILLFUL CHOICE"
Wisdom Choices should lead our acts,
Skillful means that weigh all facts.
We create through choice of Will,
Those values best to fulfill!
Confusion around us clouds our gaze,
Leading past the Truer Ways.
Look Within for Judgments-Keen,
At Partnership where Truth is seen.
Before all other acts unfold,
See Within this Bond to hold.
By this means Skill will start,
Conceived within your Silent Heart.
Deep within we find a Rouse
So thereby we learn Great Truths –
The Source that speaks deep Within,
Guides us then, with Skill to spin!
Zao
" TREASURES "
Father’s Gifts the Child receives,
They’re nature is known by Acts and Deeds. 
Parts of His Pattern – In Heart they are felt –
Gifts to us each – bequeathed and indwelt:
Personality is Permanence, an enigma in life –
Constant is change yet I always suffice.
All else will change as this Permanence surrounds,
Your Identity only, nowhere else to be found!
Freewill – is ours – all actions we choose;
Creation unfolding, engaged by your view.
The world will change when Will directs choice,
Combined with Permanence, it’s solely your voice!
In the Arena of Action mind is our sight –
By experience and skill it leads us to Right.
Opportunity abounds for each and us all,
To choose by our minds – to rise or to fall.
Alone we are not in doing these things –
Inside is a Guide – in harmony It sings.
A Presence of Father, a Part of His being,
Gentle yet strong…within It is seen.
A Pilot it is – a Circuit within –
Part of the Source from which we begin.
Whetting our thirst for Truth’s attraction
It’s guiding us forward – toward right action!
Combining these Gifts will quicken your Soul, Evolving a Form with wings is our Goal!
To carry us to Heaven, returning to Source,
New beings of Freewill, devoted, on course. 
Long is our Journey, it never will end –
New gains accomplished – move toward a bend.
Cycle by cycle is Service decreed,
Warranted only – by Value of Deed.
Then at long last – a new Gift is revealed –
Only by you is its Joy congealed:
Back to Father we give a great prize –
Love’s Accomplishments…seen through our eyes!


Zao


"FORMLESS FOCUS"
Formless places fill our nature,
In quiet there, is Father’s Favor.
Receive His Presence, by nothing doing,
To Truth therein you thus are gluing.
Turn within, leave thoughts without,
By Formless Focus receive this Route.
For forms are merely convenient lots,
No less is true of passing thoughts.
Thoughts are forms that focus mind,
Your Will they seek, there to blind.
Each within proceeds so fair,
Yet relinquish thoughts that enter there.
One by one will forms away –
Focus though will not be swayed.
For mind has Skill beyond mere thought,
By Formless Focus is Truth begot. 
Willful Focus by its nature,
Is immune to form by its Maker.
This Mystery is beyond conception –
For thoughts create their own deception.
Trust the Truth that I speak,
Freed of form you’ll not be weak.
Trust exists free of form,
Through its faith we are reborn.
Slipping into Formless Being –
Will bring you Truth not foreseen.
So join within your Awaiting Fate –
For in Truth this place is a Gate.
Truth passes through with greatest ease –
Expanding Service as forms it frees!
And thus you pass the Truth outside,
Then all will come to seek your side.
As Skill you offer your fellow man –
For Service is the Eternal Plan!

..that is precisely my point my dear friend....ASK THE FATHER WITHIN YOUR HEART.... for truly.. there is NO other authority.......
Your are Loved,
Zao

Jose....and so many here....you ask...and with good intention... for another to 'tell you'....... How can you 'give up' so much.??!!??. expect a source outside of your Gift...to lead you... Lead YOURSELF ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN INNER KNOWING....... it will never be found by 'another'.......I say this not in sorrow or criticism....but in JOY....   KNOW YOURSELF....all else will be in order...
This OBSESSION to 'be shown'...to 'be told'..... becomes a closed loop of endless Suffering....for individuals...for Humanity....  BE WHO YOU ARE...a Child of God... a co-creator........
"What a son desires..and the Father wills, IS"

In Heart,
Zao

“…….again the Spring flows, and the desert shall bloom!”
 
Gather all,  that I might share a story, a tale from long ago.  So ancient are the origins of this story  that even in the memories of all your fathers’ fathers  none can recall when it began:
 
A Spring of Water found its level in a high mountain plateau.  This Water was pure beyond imagination.  So clear and perfect was this Water that should you drop the  most beautiful  diamond into its depths the gem would jar the eye as a thing unclean, a violation  of the Water’s clarity.
 
This sublime Beauty Stream  flowed from  the Heart of God.  Knowing how its Gift would eternally nourish the lands through which it flowed, God sent a Guardian, a special Spirit of the Stream to lead the Waters through mountain vales and valleys, down cliffs and ramparts,  spreading to all the world  the bounty of its Gift.   "Good Spirit, Behold the Joy of my Loving Care for all that Receive this Treasure!  I leave you as Companion to watch and care for my Sons and Daughters of the Earth that they might flourish and grow in the Truth of my Devotion to their well being." 
 
And so by cascades  the Water flowed down the mountain highlands. Everywhere and everything it touched turned to blossom and to seed.  Rich meadows grew up along the Water’s edge where children came to swim, drink, and joy in its Delights.  And so the   Guardian of the Water pleasured in his Task,  seeing Delight in the children’s  eyes, and Wonder in the flowers’ colors, and  Tender Ease in  the moss’ soothing green. Beauty and bounty flourished as the Children played in Joy.  
 
Ages passed as the Water flowed along its path. Foothill fields and low lands too  received its gentle flow. Watching there, the Guardian could see  desert lands further below, and  beyond those sandy soils, the marshes of the sea. From it’s Lofty Origin long the Stream Companion had nurtured    in Care and Trust the  River Path. Yet seeing far off low lands he feared for the loss of the Beauty of his Ward.  “Such sandy soils and salty lands will surely cloud the Stream.  If this comes to pass what good will the Water be?  Who will come to sip its sweetness to soothe a drying thirst?  And beyond the sands the Water’s pureness will  be lost  within the ocean’s depth's of salt and brim.  How can I save it?  How can it be preserved? Surely my Lord tests me, judging so my skill and wisdom!”
 
 Doubt and worry plagued  the Guardian as he looked toward the sea.  His concern grew  greatly. So much so that this Spirit, this trustee of the Waters, spent less and less of his time  along the   Stream banks pleasuring with the joyful children in his care.  Watchful and brooding, he thought only of the depths and desert below.  “Perhaps my Master tests me, probing  my skills.  I shall  halt this Flow,  saving it from  loss.  I will dam the Stream and store its precious Gift!  A mountain lake I’ll form, and around its shore I’ll gather the Treasures of the Spring!”
 
As a spirit of great experience, he knew well how vast   his design must be, or the stream might slip away.  With all the powers at his command, he moved  rocks and trees and soil to build his lofty plan. High and wide he  piled all around the barriers of his will. He scooped and dragged and stacked them to the sky.  “There!” he said, “Behold the success of my plan! The Water saves and gathers now within my lake.  Surely here this Treasure is safe, I have made it so!”
 
Even  great spirits though, can fall victim to their thoughts.  As years went by the water slowly rose.  Deep it grew, so deep in fact that its flow filled all the valleys it had passed.  Climbing, retracing all its early flow, the Spring was lost within the depths of the lake; so deeply concealed therein, that soon none could feel its gentle Flow.  And worse than that,  stagnation grew around the Water's edge.  And from the treeless , soil robbed lands the flowers no longer grew.  Sadness filled the children’s hearts.  For  then they knew that in these waters   no longer could they play nor quench their thirst.   “Fish and drink and merriment no longer can we find.  We must be gone, toward the sea in search of bounty we have lost!”  And so they left the lake.
 
 Past the dam the children sought the Glories  they had lost.  But not being conditioned in such terrain, the desert lands confused and burdened them beyond their abilities.  Soon thirst and need divided their purpose.  Their play was lost, and turned to sorrow, and fear grew between them.  It was then, at that very moment that our father’s fathers first came into their memories that tell us now all we know.  All the memory of our kind grew from such hard times.  In due course not one man lived who knew the stream before the dam was built.  From then on, burden and toil have filled the thoughts of man.
 
So very many years had passed since the first Sweetness of the Flow.  But by God’s thought, only  moments few has passed.  So shocked He was when back He came to greet the Guardian of  His Trust!  “Where have you hidden my Flow?  And where have all the children fled?”   “But Lord, my Liege,  I sought to save the Gift!  Blame me not for your design, for behold the polluting sands of desert and the losing depths of sea!  My thought, my deed was meant to correct this flaw!”
 
“Unworthy  Servant,  how  blinded you have grown!  Had you not halted the Stream, the Gift would have spread to every land.  The sands below would have lifted the waters to the skies above, as so too does the sea, that clouds might drop this Gift beyond the mountains and plateaus!  If your  trust in me had been complete, the children below would not struggle so, dying from thirst. Nor would they fight among themselves.  Your Ward is lost, and I  banish you , a fallen Trustee!”
 
Now the Lord is wise and leads in Mercy.  So  too, is He skilled beyond the knowing of all His children.  In His  wisdom He moved to set the stream to flow. Standing atop the dam, the Lord placed His left hand upon His Heart, and   a Light surrounded Him, a Light that shown through the rim of the dam like the  sun  through a rising fog.     Down the Light descended, dropping  the dam's height  to the Stream bed  below. So too the Light descended the dam's backside to the surface of the lake.  Touching the stagnant surface of the water, the lake suddenly shown with the glow of  hundred million pearls. The murky depths  were gone and the lake illuminated the clouds high above it's surface.  Then at the dam's crest, at the very feet of the Lord, an opening appeared.  With total silence, threads of shimmering Silver Water moved beyond the crest,  flowing down the full face of the dam.  Wherever the Water touched, the Light spread as through thinning vapors. Gradually the Flow grew, wetting all the surface of the dam until the whole structure was  a   mist of radiant  illumination.  No longer could the Lord be seen as separate from this Light for all was infused in Luminosity. 
 
The Light shown across every stretch of mountain and valley, every lowland and desert.  It's Brilliance caught every eye, drawing to Itself the wonder of all who beheld it.  And the children came to see, to be near the Source of this Great Luminosity  Soon the Lord's Presence was surrounded by His children -  drawn there by the wonder of His Light.
The entire  dam was transformed as if it was  liquid  sunlight.  No longer was there distinction of structure and lake, for all was admixed and flowing in  shimmering  Radiance. The Lord stood within the   current as gently it resumed it’s Flow, moving toward  sand and sea.
 
 
 
By the mind of man, this act God did, what seems quite long ago.  But by God’s measure, what are mere millennia of men?  His act was swift, though long past it seems to  all that here my words. 
 
Now God’s Good Grace steadfast leads a sure,  and  certain Way.  Yet, just now, pause  Dear Children and in Silence you will hear, the Waters spread and grow.  The leached and slim  deposits, around the lake's surround,  are destined to cliffs on high, from where their presence spread.  Falling waters cascade again and flow beyond the Spring.  Now flowers grow below the  dam , some sweet beyond compare.  As we pause in silent thanks, their fragrance  surrounds our days.  The sands are washed and the sea receives, so both may help the Lord.
 
 Children,  joy and know your Gift, for back it comes to us!  Let us  hold  hands, joining with Family and with Friend, that together we might go, to the Water’s edge.
 
 
 
 
 
“NOTHING’S WHAT IT’S GOING TO BE”
( So What Are You Going To Do?)
 
Nothing’s what it’s going to be.
The Change begins with you!
 
Nothing is as was before,
As Light shines through a Door.
 
Nothing old will be again.
Will the New You change the score?
Nothing new can fail to be,
When Truth and Choice are Free!
Something New, is nothing new -  
It’s what you’re meant to be!

....when I early on began studying the UB some forty years ago...and having gained some insight about it's Wisdom.....I when speaking of the Revelation to others ..whether they were familiar with it or not.... I use to say...still do the following: If I was 'stranded on that desert island'...and could choose either to have all the books and printed words of wisdom printed .....or...just the UB ....I would choose the UB ...and...if I was given the choice of being on that island with 'either the UB or the Silence of my Own Heart'...... I would choose the Silence......it's all we need.
Love,
Zao

Dear Amethyst.....thank you for your kind words......... I have long followed things here... not always with the focus of many others.....and for reasons of choice...... All are Facets of One Gem...but the view 'in and out of facets' when in 'isolation' a distorted...certainly limited 'view' is achieved....... my metaphor may be  more than symbolic... perhaps not metaphor at all....as it it 'literal'....I find much on this site that in of a 'priority' not fully in resonance with my own experience and choice..... so much 'broo ha ha'...(endless really).... to the point... IMHO.... being at times self defeating to all the Work there is to be done..... not by our 'Kin on High'...but by us...the Children of Urantia.....the endless speculation....projection...anticipation of 'what's next'....seems to me often such a drain on precious potentials....critical thinking.....prioritizing of 'what's important'...and 'what is not'........

I say these things not as criticism.....for I have over the years here specifically avoided 'my opinion' in counter to those for whom this site is their particular 'sounding board'....for indeed that it is...and I respect that.....  I just feel... with a world situation SO in Need...that all the constant speculations about what our Elders may or are doing.....dilutes our on POTENTIAL to act...to DO...in this World that which can and MUST only be done...BY OUR OWN WISDOM and experiential insights....... I quote my own Guide.. Zao.... "all the  pretty words and thoughts of this world cannot counter balance one act of kindness........."  I write these words to you, Amethyst...for... you have expressed a 'priority for kindness' ..........

There is SO MUCH to DO.... more than enough to keep us all busy 'doing His Work'....and not just speculating about 'what 's next'.......

Love I send to you.... to All who 'intend...desire...and create'......

In Heart,
Zao

".......as we prepare ourselves for what ever is decided and planned."......
....perhaps instead of 'waiting' for this 'decision'...why not just MAKE THE CHOICE.......
WE ARE THE HANDS AND FEET OF DESTINY..... it is OUR Job to 'choose and do'.... no one else is responsible.... No one.

Z

........I wonder when people will forget their preoccupation about 'reading' the Word....and simply BEING THE WORD....
..there is nothing to achieve......but much to Do.....

Loving Heart,
Zao

Subject: “Activate the Light Body.”


Message received by Chris Maurus.


Teacher Ophelius: “Today my dear students, we would like to speak about how to participate in your own attunement process with your Thought Adjuster (TA). As with all things in the universes of time and space, creature participation in the emergence of the Supreme Being requires free will decisions that attribute to unique creature experiences — the co-creative endeavors between you and your TA. Those that are aware of their Co-creative Partners have a distinct advantage over those who are oblivious to this fact of being — even more advantageous are those who work together with their Divine Partners to participate in the Great Plan and execute Christ Michael’s work to bring this world to the doorstep of Light and Life.


“Those of you having felt that you have come to this world to accomplish something great and have been searching for the key that unlocks the mystery that seems imprisoned in your mind — it is to you that I speak. That mystery is not a how, or where, or when, but an ‘ah-ha.’ It is the moment when you realize that there is unfathomable power on ‘standby’ and living within your mind — the Mystery Monitor waiting for you to awaken and claim your inheritance in this life. While the slumbering world looks ahead for a ‘savior’ to come and manifest Utopia for them, you have the opportunity to willingly and co-creatively participate in something monumental — here and now.


“We have given you many lessons over the years where we have talked extensively about this living relationship between you and Deity and now it is time for some of you to take that accumulated knowledge, your applied experiences, and begin to use it and use it with power. Many of you have not so much been ‘chosen’ to do this work of the Correcting Time, but you have willingly prepared yourself — through faith, and perseverance, to seek for that powerful relationship that is the key to all manifestation.


“Whenever there is a celestial administrative campaign (Correcting Time) to ‘move’ a planet and bring it into alignment with the creative mandates of the Great Plan, it is always a team effort between planetary oversight (the celestial realm) and with those living beings on the worlds of time and space. We look for those exceptional ‘bright lights’ that are most likely to establish a relationship with their Indwelling Spirit and prepare themselves for co-creative assignments. They are these individuals that get the focus from ‘our side’ where we put our energies and continue to lay the bread crumbs that lead to the unfolding of the Mystery.


“We ask you to prepare yourselves for the next level of attunement, and as you have been faithfully following the bread crumbs thus far, it would be beneficial for you to sit down and connect intimately with your TA and ask (willingly) for this next level of attunement. As mansion world teachers, we typically encode our messages ‘between the lines’ as you and your TA digest the lesson and apply it in your own way, but today we are giving you the coded words for this next level of attunement/participation:


“‘ACTIVATE THE LIGHT BODY.’ The meaning of this code is between you and your TA and cannot be defined by any other.
