1. The long arc of civilization
MACHIVENTA: Good morning, this is Machiventa Melchizedek. It is good to be here with you. We have continued to present in our lessons to you the long arc of civilization, the long arc of societies and nations. It is this long arc that Planetary Management is particularly concerned about. There are immediate things, developments in your world that we do not deal with directly, and sometimes the answers we give to those problems you present may make you look askance at what we are saying. The emphasis is not necessarily to fix the problems that are immediate to your lives now, but to create solutions for a sustainable future. This is important to us because your planet is a long lived planet and has the potential to produce many billions of good souls successfully and for the benefit of God the Supreme.
We couch our counsel to you in terms of the long arc, though we eagerly appreciate your questions and engage them in terms of the immediate and long-term. We have known that your societies, your leaders have a desire for quick results with very little return in the future. We however operate from a far different method of strategic decision-making and implementation. We do that in terms of providing solutions for the long-term, so that the long-term would become successful and that individuals, families and communities will thrive, be stable and contribute to the next generations, and so on.
2. Solutions will pay off in the long run
The recommended changes and improvements that we have given to you are some that are far-fetched in some of your minds, that they are radical, that they are far from even a centrist point of view of what can work today. This is very true and that is why many of you have a cognitive and cultural dissonance with our solutions. We ask you as the frontier people, the pioneers of this New Era to abide with us, be patient with us and you will see that the solutions do pay off in the long run, as you become more and more invested and the ideologies that we teach become more and more deeply invested and embedded in contemporary and even younger generations.
If you have questions, you are most welcome to now bring them forward.
3. What concepts are recommended for young teenagers?
Stéphane: I have a young niece who has shown interest. For those who are interested at a very young age in the concepts that we are discussing, what is the best path forward for encouraging them for moving forward?
MACHIVENTA: And what is the age of this niece?
MACHIVENTA: We see this as a very opportune age in which to present the larger perspective of Universe Management, and particularly Planetary Management through the long arc of solid thinking and of stable values that underlie good decision-making. We would advise you this way: You ask her to examine the history of all human civilization—organized human civilization—from the very first clans and tribes and nations that had a leader and a hierarchy of decision-making and leadership. You will also note in telling her that all of these have failed. Why is it that the Incas are not here to greet you when we go to travel to South America? Why are not the Ancient Egyptians still around for us to talk with them and ask them how they built the pyramids? All of these have failed; they have failed because of not what they did, but what they did not do. And this is the enchanting and tantalizing aspect that will cause curiosity in her young mind. It is not a factor of what people did wrong, but what they did not do right; it was that they had too much power from the four primary values to support the sustainability of an aggressive nation to come to dominate other nations. What was lacking were the three secondary values that gave their leadership humanity, compassion, care and mercy in the conduct of their decision-making and their behavior.
To make it relevant to her, it is essential for her to know that democracies as they exist today did not ever exist before. Yes, the Classical Greeks did have a form of democracy, but that is almost irrelevant to the democratic processes that are in place in most democratic nations today. The same factor of history for failure of prior organizations, of governments and cultures and societies, and so on—which includes huge dynasties and empires—are at play today in your democratic process. Their great success has been based on the innate 4 primary values to “make”—and that is an important word to understand, to “make or force”—the current system to survive. However, those four values may be sufficient for a species to survive, and even for a civilization to last for centuries, but they are grossly insufficient to create a sustainable society and social infrastructure of social institutions that contribute to the long-term social sustainability of that nation. That is one point.
The second point is that the leaders of good nations that are functional socially, politically and economically come from the family where the children are raised in functional ways, where there are two loving parents who spend a great deal of time rearing and parenting those children until they leave home, and care and sustain them when they can after they do leave home. It is upon the family that societies’ and nations’ success rise or fall. It is important for her to know that she is one of the people who will form the future for her children and grandchildren. What kind of family will she have? Most of all, what is her intention for life? What is her intention as an individual? For her, the future is much more open and accepting of her feminine nature than those of the past. She is one who holds the three secondary values in her feminine nature, and as a future mother she will also exhibit those same four primary values in sustaining the survival of her family and of her children.
Yes, this is a lot to take in, but you have time and when you spend time with her you will be able to convey many of these things. It is important now for you and your relationship with her to create a relationship of curiosity, of wonderment and questions. It is upon questions that the future of your relationship and its success for her lies. She will become more curious as her mind develops and as she thinks about these things that you have given her. To have her think in terms of a Planetary Manager would be a grand step for her generation; it is something that she will take forward with her in the papers that she writes and presents to her peers.
Stéphane: Thank you. What about recommendations for her studies, what for life ambitions she may have in the future, if there are any recommendations on how to advise on those choices?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, first of all, we advise her to think in terms of a Liberal Arts academic future to become a generalist. This gives her a broad span of knowledge about humanity, civilization and so on. Then with that, she may want to continue on with her studies that are specific to her particular talents, those things that she enjoys, those things that she is good at, for it is not sufficient to just be a generalist in the world, but she must also become a person who has specific skills and can provide excellence in her area of expertise and her knowledge.
Stéphane: Thank you.
4. Prayer and Worship for Machiventa
Liz. In all the Urantia Book study groups I’ve attended, there always comes a time of a robust discussion about the difference between prayer and worship. I’m sure you have a lesson about that, but I am more interested in your personal experience, your personal definition and distinction between prayer and worship.
MACHIVENTA: Certainly. By the way, Rayson has given you numerous lessons about this and made those distinctions clear, at least for mortals. (Liz: Thank you, I will look into that.) As for myself and my relationship to the Divine, there is not so much prayer existent in my life as it is in mortals, but more a time of repose and contemplation where I am at ease with the Being of the Universe Thought Adjusters and those who are present here on this planet to commune with me, and me with them. It is of importance that this be given time and dedication on a regular basis. Prayer, as you know, is a form of talking to God, whereas meditation is a means of listening to God. When you have an evolved mind in the morontial realm, a mind that has evolved through many, many hundreds of steps during your morontial career, you become more and more of an open book. So too with Melchizedeks, that what I know, others know and they are welcome to know if they have a need to know. And as the Divine Mind of God is present in Thought Adjusters, that presence of God is intimate to myself that through this connection, what I know. They know and they know all. Therefore, when I sit in contemplation and meditation I am open totally to the presence of Divine instruction, and this is the difference in prayer and meditation for me.
As for worship, it is a personal and intimate relationship I have with the Divine as I do to my personal relationship with Christ Michael. It is one of adoration, admiration, respect and a healthy awareness of the unity of all, as held together by Christ Michael and the beings of the Universe Administration, the Divine Beings of the Trinity in Paradise. It is upon those moments that I have intimate contact with the Divine. So you see that my presence, openness to the Divine is very intimate and personal to me. It is a highly conscious, volitional activity that I enjoy entering into. As I do not have a Thought Adjuster, then I open to the Divine that is within Christ Michael and Nebadonia and the Divine of the Trinity in Paradise. It is upon those moments that I receive, also as you do, some of those tremendous “Ah-ha” moments of the mystics that you have heard about. It is a pleasure to be in that union with the Divine.
Liz: Thank you, that was very interesting. I have just one more question and that is: I had a friend tell me one time about a terrible thing that her daughter did to her, and I thoughtlessly said to her, “You should just forgive and forget.” And she said to me, “Well, I will never forget and I have no idea what you mean when you say, ‘forgive.’” This set me on a quest to learn a definition for myself about forgiveness and I have found one that works for me, but it seems to only work for me. Could you please expound a little bit on forgiveness?
MACHIVENTA: I, myself and my team, and all others will heartedly be enjoying the fact that eventually you will have a searchable database for questions as this, for it has been asked many times in the past. The universal answer for forgiveness is one that is completely applicable to humans on this planet — You forgive, and forgive, and forgive, whether it is seven times, forty-nine times, or four-hundred and ninety times, or 700 times. You forgive until there is no more emotional energy left in the episode which caused you to need to forgive. It is the emotional energy that ties you to that event. If you continue to harbor resentment, hatred, loathing and murderous thoughts then you surely have a lot of forgiving to do. When you have eventually forgiven that person earnestly, and asked for your Thought Adjuster’s assistance to do so thoroughly and completely, then eventually in time as you continue to do this with sincerity and earnestness and to persevere against the dark thoughts of your small mind, then you will see that you will be a person who has forgiven.
It is not necessary to forget as these incidents are both learning lessons both for you and for the other person; they are particularly important to remember that as you mature past those episodes of hatred that require forgiveness that you then become a real living teacher and mentor to others who are going through the same process. It is a method that the forgiveness continues until there is no more energy, coloration or even an occasional thought about what occurred. It is as though that other individual who hurt you or harmed you has become just another stranger on the street.
Liz: Thank you for that, and I too welcome the day when we will have a complete searchable database, although periodic reminders such as this are a good thing for all of us.
6. Do we forgive those who kill hundreds of innocent people?
Rick: I would like to add to Liz’s question, if I might. I’d like to bring her excellent question about forgiveness and forgetting into present day visceral life, and I’d like to perhaps have a discussion on how we might forgive these people who just killed almost 300 innocent people in Sri Lanka. Do we forgive them by letting them go? Do we forgive them by hunting them down and bring the brunt of the law? How do we forgive these people? I feel some real anger towards these people who killed these innocents and I find it difficult to find forgiveness in my heart for these people.
MACHIVENTA: Thank you for your question. First there is no forgiveness in vengeance; it only exacerbates and solidifies the justification for vengeance and for destroying those who have destroyed others. You have sunk to the same level as those individuals, and if a person is self-righteous enough to think they have been forgiven in doing their vengeance, then they are grossly and eternally mistaken. As for the forgiveness for those individuals whom you have never met, who have caused such great destruction, it is a matter of rising to the crisis of Jesus on the Cross, when he forgave those people because they really did not know what they were doing.
You know what you are doing in your life, so you would never do those things. You would find no justification in harming other people, thus you can forgive these people in the same way: that they have not harmed you, but they have harmed your fellow brothers and sisters in another nation. This is a difficult thing to do. It is essential that you rise also to the level of a Planetary Manager who does not necessarily abide by what occurred and does not agree with what occurred, but sees that this is evidence of the many foibles of humans who have not evolved in their consciousness to come to love other people as they love themselves.
7. Forgiveness is an intrinsic part of your evolving spirituality
Learning how to forgive is essential for all people. If you personally were to become aware of all the violence that was occurring in your nation against children, against women, against neighbors, against friends, against those who are not seen either but have been harmed by the pilfering and mismanagement of their money, you would be near death at this moment for your grief for all the people that are around you. It is not just those people across the world that you grieve, because you know that others around you grieve as well. Those in the city that you live in also are grieving for their own situations for how they have been treated by their societies, by their families, by their neighbors, by their friends, by their enemies. Forgiveness is a very intrinsic part of your evolving spirituality. It is evidence of the understanding of the humanity of the aggressor. As you rise in your forgiveness, it is not that you become numb to it; it is not that you become accepting of it as normal. It is simply of situations that are pervasive across your world that you at this moment cannot do anything about, other than to forgive them. It does not mean that you accept what they are doing, or that you are cavalier about what is occurring to other people, because it could happen to you as well.
You forgive because it is part of your relationship with your Thought Adjuster; it is part of your growth; it is part of your evolution; it is part of your aspiring capability to rise to the level of that day of fusion with your Thought Adjuster. Because forgiving is Christ-like, it is necessary as Jesus forgave that you forgive others as well. It is not that you are helpless to do anything about it, because you are not. You can be of assistance through your prayer; you can be of assistance to raise the consciousness of the world around you, in your city, in your family, in your neighbors and in your nation that you live in, and the continents that you live in and the whole world. It is upon your consciousness that the future of the world depends, and it depends upon the consciousness of all of the people as well.
Rick: Thank you for your answer.
8. Forgive but also hold people accountable for their actions
Stéphane: So, Machiventa, if you take this to the ultimate extreme, we can talk about Christ Michael’s forgiveness for Caligastia and Lucifer, and although in this particular case it was a succession of events where those two would not repent, can you take us to the next step of giving people that glorious action?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, certainly, and I thank you for your question as it is an evolved part of our discussion. For those who have a continuing penchant to be evil, to do harm to others, it is necessary to forgive them for their nature, but also to hold them personally accountable. Christ Michael did forgive these individuals and provided them with the means to bring themselves back into the fold of Nebadon’s Local Universe. It is essential that forgiveness be applied, and as well that remediation be applied. This is the true proof of the value of the soul that the individual carries with them and the potential contributions that they can make to themselves, their society, their families and to their world. Without remediation, without education, without that thorough healing of the individual by themselves, they cannot succeed and proceed. Those two individuals did not accept the re-education program that was presented, so that they could become part of the fold. This is true acknowledgement that they were unforgiving of their own selves. They saw their egotism as supreme over all else and succumbed to that by becoming non-existent. You have within you to understand this yourself, as there are things in the world you cannot control. It is essential that those things that you do have an influence in be used to the betterment of others, which gives you a greater maturity of your spirituality and your personality. If you have further question toward this, please ask them.
Stéphane: Thank you. That’s good for me today.
9. A question on the sun’s magnetic field
Jeff: I have a question on a much lower level of thinking. There is an Astrophysicist named Valentina Zharkova [Note: Professor in Mathematics at Northumbria University]. She studies the sunlight and sun’s magnetic field and recently she published what she said was a refereed research on a formula that calculated change in the magnetic polarity of the sun. She showed back study of her methodology and claims that it has predictive value going forward. My first question, does your team think that this is good science?
MACHIVENTA: One moment. Be careful of your words. First of all, the word “good” has a moral connotation to it. Is it bad science? In other words, is it moral science or is it immoral science? Is it ethical science, or is it unethical science? It is really neither one. It is simply just science. Now, I ask you to couch your question in terms of “does it work?” And I will leave that to you to ask again.
Jeff: Thank you for helping me with that. Her claim is that we are— Urantia will enter in 2020 to a Grand Solar Minimum (a recurring cycle about every 400 years). Her claim is that this will cause a waning of the sun from something like 5,000 K to 3,000 K and by 2025 or 2028 there will be insufficient light to ripen grain. Is this true?
MACHIVENTA: In regard to your Kelvin calculations, yes, it is true. However, considering the beginning of the changes in the dimming of the sun’s intensity that will have to remain to be seen by you. In other words, I am not going to give you a full and clear answer regarding your question. I will, however, qualify that by saying that the events of the sun are directly connected to the overpopulation of your world and the conjunction, or the nexus of so many vectors of influence upon this period of time in your world. Having said that, you can come to some incomplete conclusions that yes, perhaps her calculations are correct. You cannot “take that to the bank,” as you like to say, but you can rely upon that many factors are coming to bear upon your world and its population to help your species survive, and the best benefit of what has been accomplished will remain during and after these cataclysmic events.
Jeff: One question from a Planetary Management standpoint. So if this woman’s theory is come to be accepted on the cyclical nature of magnet fields, how should Urantia plan for its return in 400 years, or is it too early to know that?
MACHIVENTA: We have given you the long arc of success of your species and it begins first by not having to think about geological, geophysical or astrophysical problems and those developments, but to really get a handle on your own anger management as a species. Those are simple and direct words. The means for the future 400 years will be determined by the balancing of the masculine/feminine characters and the characteristics and traits and use of all seven values in decision-making. In 400 years your civilization may not even exist if it continues as it does now. It must come to some conclusions about decision-making that are helpful to those who do remain. It is not necessarily what the after-geophysical/astrophysical conditions present that may threaten your survival as a species, but what is involved in your decision-making under those stressors to make sound decisions that insure the survival of your species and the health and welfare and functionality of families and societies. That is the greater situation that must be dealt with, and that must begin now and that is why we have presented you with the seven innate values of your Homo sapiens species.
Jeff: So, is there anything other than what we are doing promoting the seven core values? Is there any other positive action that we can take at this time?
MACHIVENTA: That would be enough work for you to do for now.
Jeff: Thank you.
10. Need for a searchable database for Urantia Book and transcripts
Stéphane: Machiventa, you’ve mentioned several times now this searchable database concept. I am amazed that we can ask Google any questions and always get some sort of meaningful answers on general subjects. I am wondering if the tools are available today to do that with our own database?
MACHIVENTA: And you say, “Our own database.” What would that be?
Stéphane: I’m thinking the Urantia Book combined with all the transcripts from Northern Colorado and Teaching Mission in general as a single searchable database where people could ask questions and get answers related to all the previous transcripts and data available.
MACHIVENTA: Your question already has an impending answer. It is our awareness that several individuals who have been long-term members of the Teaching Mission, Magisterial Mission and the Urantia Book databases have already begun to establish a web site and is even now in the process of initiating and then activating a searchable database process. There is one, Jim Cleveland, who has taken on the responsibility of doing that. We have tried to enthuse others in the past to take on this task, but those who tried had insufficient or were innocent of awareness of technologies and working relationships with others to bring this into full agreement. This database is of high interest to us and we have been deeply involved in it, simply because it is cross-ideological. It will include the Urantia Book, the Teaching Mission, Magisterial Mission transcripts primarily, and the other related materials that relate to this era of revelation through channeling. This has been unacceptable to Urantia Book Fundamentalists and they have not included these new revelations in their database that is highly searchable. So yes, we have begun and those who wish to support this project are asked to come forward to assist in that program.
Stéphane: Thank you.
11. The definition of a functional society
Craig: I’m seeing that we have all kinds of various problems today, so what we are trying to do here is set up conditions to evolve to where these problems are not going to occur, or that they will occur much less frequently and less readily because we will have set up a society that doesn’t nip the problems at the root, but actually is set up so that these problems don’t occur in the first place. I guess that’s just a statement. Do you tend to agree with that?
MACHIVENTA: We agree highly with that. That is the definition of a functional society, one that has the internal processes that accept that variations in the conduct of society that will occur and that there are inherent internal processes that will resolve those. The nature of the concept of a functional organization, whether it is a society, a government or any other organization is that they become functional; they become an operational holism that includes, that sees the problems ahead, that sees variations as opportunities for improvement of the current operation. There is always a curiosity about what is “out there.” You have awareness of the Star Trek Series where they would send out probes to fathom the depths of the local area ahead for light-years, and then report back.
This is what really functional organizations do, particularly governments and large scale organizations, is that they always want to become aware of the holism around them, not just those issues which are specific to their interest, but those that affect all of society as well. The missing element for a truly functional democratic government is that it seeks the input of those who are governed; it includes them more often than just once every two years at election time. Doing so, there is an understanding of social change as an ongoing process of every society and that it is important to keep the finger on the pulse of those changes, then to adapt, not just to survive—the organization or the hierarchy—but to continue the functionality and the cooperative nature of the whole society.
12. Lack of hierarchy in design teams
Craig: We’ve been talking before about social sustainability design teams, and we now have sort of a broader picture of that, that there may be a whole hierarchy of social sustainability design teams that one may pass up their findings or designs from a base discussion level up through larger community levels combining the findings of different teams. So there are two questions related to that. The first one, is there some sort of means by which we are going to decide who becomes the higher level team, or is that just something that will develop on its own?
MACHIVENTA: No, that is not a decision-making process. It is not like electing people and campaigning and being someone’s favorite. The hierarchy only develops as a necessary functional element of the overall process. It is not that ideas are passed up from one team to another, but that there is a means by which all the teams can be assessed for their conclusions, and that what is found is a consensus of concern among all the design teams for a particular problem. As you can see there could be a number of ways to generate discussions in teams about these problems. One is that they could be generated independently within a team by itself and that they can originate problems to discuss and develop solutions. Another way could be that there would be through the network of all the teams, a broadcast of a problem that other teams may want to consider and want to make their own conclusions and share those. Eventually it would be necessary to have somebody who would collect the information from all the teams to share those conclusions or those findings with all the teams without making any decisions. It would be a facilitative, coordinative function to assist the teams to come to a consensus among, let us say a population of over a million people. This would have significance to each team and to whole nations. Does this help?
13. How to begin forming a Design Team
Craig: Yes, thank you very much. And the other question was that in beginning to form teams, or a team, that I think it was mentioned recently that you don’t want to start by this whole grand scheme. You just want to say, “Hey, anybody want to get together and talk about this problem?” So I guess in the beginning stages it would be easier to attract people just by saying, “Let’s talk about this problem.” Is that a good approach?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, that is a variation of an approach for starting. The other is for, let us say, yourself as the originator or the initiator to be aware of a problem that you thought was common to people on the island where you live, and so you would want to gain a broader knowledge or to validate whether your perceptions are correct or not, and you would ask a number of people whether that is part of their thinking as well, that it is a problem. If your find some concurrence, or you find that consistently people talk about another problem that you had not thought of, then you offer the option to them that maybe they would be willing to participate in a team process to come up with some possible solutions, and they would either say yes or no, and that begins the start of your potential team. Do you have questions further?
Craig: That’s all I can think of at the moment. Thank you.
14. Getting institutions to make foresightful plans
Roxie: How do we get farmers, water and wastewater institutions and electrical institutions to make foresightful plans before the cataclysms, since we can’t talk about revelations of the cataclysms beforehand without causing fear?
MACHIVENTA: You too, have a similar situation with the questions of Craig. You have the awareness of these institutions having concerns. They are each individually very concerned about their continued sustainability, their survival in existence into the future. Now the crossroads, the nexus of them, what other problems do they have in common to each of these institutions or these venues. It is important that they come to the joint awareness that they have a common problem that they need to resolve. As you realize and know that there are so many problems that are existent in the social and cultural infrastructure of this nation and many other nations that they are struck with solving the problems of today, their concerns are more immediate than later. You want to find problems that are common to all of them and suggest that they too may want to coordinate their solutions to assist each other.
The processes of finding solutions, or solution-finding, or creating solutions is essential to all of these organizations and institutions. They would have an interest in a common methodology for problem solution and solution creation. The aspect of coming cataclysms will not be apparent to them, though any large organization should have an advanced thought-group or “think tank” within their organization to foresee probabilities of what may occur in the future. If they do not, then even as individuals they would want to become aware of future potentials that could arise. The aspect of total elimination of a large segment of a national population is usually out of the thought range of most people. I know that I have not given you a thoroughgoing answer to your question, but this is the option at this time.
You can be assured that we will be available to answer questions as the intensity of these cataclysms mount. You have begun to see now widespread multiple tornados occurring in sections of the nations, that at one time, as reported on your news, that 19 tornadoes were occurring simultaneously across a region of the nation. This is purely unheard of in the past, and you can be assured that it will get worse.
Roxie: Thank you. I will continue to give this some thought.
15. The impact of elections on our political system
Stéphane: Machiventa, I have a question on the age of information and its impact on our political system. The readiness information availability seems to have a huge impact on the electorates and their ability to see through what government is doing. This is creating changes such as, every time there is an election, there seems to be a radical change that comes to play. The electorate seems to be angry at what they are finding out and acting to elect governments more to the right than center. As this information age unfolds, what needs to happen in order for the pendulum to switch the other way towards the left, towards electing more caring governments for society?
MACHIVENTA: Your question is one that we have been in the process of answering for three decades, and that is to have a more rational view of the world shared with everyone. Your question discloses a trend that is part of that pendulum. We have no immediate resolution for that pendulum swing. You will see that the electorate has brought about some of the current leaders that have moved to the right, will in some nations become even stronger, and that it will cause a continuing backlash from those individuals who have more liberal points of view, those individuals who have more insight into the broad scope of societal management and functionality. There are several influences which we have brought to bear and are continuing to bear upon to change, to affect that disturbing trend.
One is the Internet, and within that you see a disturbing trend of social media to be manipulated by individuals and groups of individuals for their own ends. This will need to be neutralized.
Second is the continuing development of an evolved, more highly functional form of democracy that uses the best traits of existing democratic process in nations, and yet leverages those to a greater and heightened effectiveness for more functional decision-making on the part of leadership. This eventually will have a change in the polarized politics in congresses and parliaments and councils, and so on.
The third is the change that we have introduced through social sustainability, which cannot occur unless decision-making includes the 7 values to underlie all the major decisions that are made in a society at all levels and all functions in that society.
These three major changes are fundamental to a long-term cultural change. To change the whole culture of nations from a masculine aggressiveness using the 4 primary values to a much more balanced society using the masculine and the feminine, and the feminine in the form of the 3 secondary values.
16. No society will last unless it incorporates all seven values
No society will ever last indefinitely unless it incorporates all seven values into its decision-making. As we have said before and have said during this session today, is not so much what caused the failure of all civilizations and societies in the past, but what they did not do to sustain their success into a far-reaching and thriving future. Therefore, what we have begun is to give you a new value structure, a new democratic process that is more resilient, adaptable and based on the needs of electorate. Thank you for your question.
[Daniel: I’m getting a little groggy. Let’s call it a quits for today. I’m whipped, or something. Let me speak with Machiventa for a moment.]
17. A crucial generation for making adaptations to society
MACHIVENTA: If I may take advantage of my authority, let us bring this session to a close today. First of all, you are not left alone. We have “your back,” as you would say today. We are there to protect you, even in spite of some of your decisions that you make personally and the decisions that are made by authority groups and whole governments. We are there to support you in a means that brings about more social, political and economic stability for your children, grandchildren and all future generations. You are the crucial generation who are assisting us to make those adaptations to your society, make your societal processes more functional, more adaptable and more survivable.
18. It takes courage to introduce these concepts
It is not an easy task; when you see the wholesale slaughter of hundreds of people in a city in a foreign country across the world and your heart goes out to that, it seems as though our efforts today are short, that they are insufficient and grossly inadequate. However, for the function of a surviving planet, what we are doing today will take hold within this next generation. Without you being able and having the courage to stand up and dance in the grass to music far away when others around you think you are out of your mind, you are the first to do that. It is then at that moment when the second person, who stands up and dances, too, really gives authority and permission to all others to follow. It takes courage to introduce these concepts to organizations, and we suggest that you do so gently and cautiously, though introducing these ideas so that they will be integrated into the processes of your organization. It is obvious that what has been happening in your world simply does not work. It is one failure after another; it is preparing for more failures into the future. That is why we are here to throw you a life ring to draw you into safe harbor, to bring you on deck and keep you safe. You must of course, grab onto that safety ring and we will pull the rope that will bring you both onto the ship.
19. Your survival is paramount to Nebadon
Your survival as a society and as a nation, as a civilization is paramount to the concerns of all Planetary Managers across Nebadon. That is no small awareness; they wish the very best for us, and they have sent some of their best spiritual children, teachers, and students to be of assistance here with you on this planet now. We ask you to grab onto this safety ring, this survival ring and we will pull you home. Though this is a crude metaphor, and that it is not much of a safety ring for millions of you, it is nonetheless that you, the first ones, see the ring in the water to grab it, that others will see it as well. Eventually, your children will learn about what survives and what does not; what works and what does not work, and these children will become the leaders of your nations when you are in your elder years.
20. Your chore is to train, tutor and mentor young children
Your chore now is to begin to teach, train, tutor, and mentor these young children in ways that does not offend or send them away from you, but shows them a way forward to assist them as they grow older into their maturity, and as they face and confront the realities of the world around them. Leaving home is one, going off to be on your own, even to college, is another, and then starting your family and being dependent upon your own living wage to sustain your family and your children is another. Children today, who are at the ages you have mentioned are deeply concerned about their roles as an individual to become a parent, who becomes a worker, who leaves home, who starts a career. How do you do that? What works and what does not? They need to know that. We give you thanks for your sharing and mentoring these children today. Good day.
