The Dark Night of My Soul

Oregon, US of A, July 18, 2019.
Christ Michael/Jesus.
Subject: “The Dark Night of My Soul.”

Message received by Anyas.

Christ Michael/Jesus: “My earthly life was coming to an end and, as you will be prompted to do when you reach those crossroads, I performed a life review. At first, I had to deal with My many disappointments and regrets. The absence of the members of My physical family weighted heavily on Me. I felt utterly alone in My greatest time of need, as My three trusted disciples were not able to stay awake to pray with Me and give Me the emotional support I required. I also grieved for those who rejected Me, knowing that many tribulations would befall them, and I was concerned about the welfare of My dear followers.

“From that perspective, I was not ready to move on. I felt needed and I wished I could do more for My loved ones. As I describe the ebb and flow of my human emotions during those intense hours, I am sure you can relate. Such crushing feelings are part of the human experience. In episodes of high stress and anxiety, you seek out and cherish the support and encouragement of your family and friends.

“My human nature was direly tested that night. Three times, I asked My disciples to stay awake and pray with Me, as I was facing the great temptation to avoid ‘drinking of the cup.’ Three times, My exhausted entourage fell asleep, leaving Me alone to deal with My train of thoughts.

“Then, came a turning point in My thinking. My life review took Me to the happier times of My ministry, and this lifted My spirits. My despair was replaced with a renewed determination to do the Father’s Will, and I regained my emotional equilibrium.

“All of you undergo such inner processes when life seems to treat you too harshly. Know that I am with you in those moments of great sorrow when you call upon Me to be at your side. My spirit never sleeps, and it will comfort you in the manner I needed to be comforted while enduring the dark night of My soul.”

About Mass Shootings or Evil Sprees

São Carlos (SP), Brazil, September 2, 2019.
Teacher: Prolotheos.
Subject: “About Mass Shootings or Evil Sprees.”

Message received by Valdir Soares.

Teacher Prolotheos: “Our subject today is: ‘Motives for Evil Sprees’, a general way to refer to the increasing occurrences of Mass Shootings, especially in the US. Mass shootings were preceded in your world by the acts of terrorism. Terrorism and mass shootings are similar in modus operandi; they both have innocent people as potential targets. Terrorism is a war on a small scale, which tries to maximize its offensive by killing innocent civilians to shock and intimidate the enemy. Terrorism is mostly conducted by groups of people, adepts of a religion or ideology, but mass shootings are usually perpetrated by lone individuals and with motivation not always ideological or religious. Sure, this violence exponentiation typical of your country’s day and age has its roots in social, political and religious dissatisfaction and misrepresentation, but when we focus on the individual, we may see three main factors for the mass shootings, among others.

1. Mental Dysfunction

Mental Illness, understood as a result from both, physical (brain, neurological) and psychological (co-ordination) damage or abnormality may affect an individual's personality so as to turn him or her susceptible to committing non-sense acts of violence like mass murders. However, it is not an excuse from the responsibility for the evil done. It's the morality of the individual's decision that counts. Purpose gives consciousness and responsibility and mass murderers are, no doubt, purpose-driven individuals. Parents, family, society, and the government must create effective means for being able to early-detect individuals with mental illness and prevent their access to resources (firearms, guns, weapons in general) that may be used to cause injury, even death, as it happens in mass shootings.

2. Misplaced Loyalties

“You may be loyal to a person, to values, as well as to a cause. Many of the mass murders in your country and violence sprees anywhere in the world have to do with misplaced loyalties. Loyalty is a personal allegiance given to somebody or something. It should be offered to people and causes that are worthy of honor. But too often on this turning of the century on your planet, loyalties have been misplaced and they became main drives for mass evildoing. Religion, morality, and decency had their values confused, inverted or replaced. In the name of God, heroes, and ideologies individuals have killed innocent people. To address this situation it is necessary to focus on education: the teaching of genuine religion, worthy causes, and honorable values. And your country should make this, not only for children but for all of society and rather urgently.

3. Existential Detachment

“Human beings, consciously or no, have a tremendous need to feel to belong, be it through a family, group of friends, a community, a job, a religion, a cult – something that the individual may belong to and feel integrated with. The breaking of family ties, the greedy manipulation of people by organizations and corporations, the government’s inefficiency, and the deceiving discourse by religionists make this sensation of belonging increasingly elusive. On losing existential attachment, the individual may lose the reason for really caring and soon may start to lash out at others about his or her miseries and frustrations through diverse manners and with increasing violence. Indeed, some reach the point where mass murder is a perfectly acceptable way to punish a society that seemingly doesn’t care for its members. Strong family ties, healthy group relationships, and caring faith communities must be valued and encouraged with deference by all and at all times if Urantia, and particularly your country, wants to overcome the evil spree of mass shootings of the last decades.

“Therefore, my pupil, mass shootings may be classified as a consequence and reaction. It is an indication that society is sick or stressed and needs therapy. However, it needs to be treated by the initiative of the very patient, by sponsoring truly meaningful relationships, worthy causes, and efficient solutions. I am your celestial teacher and tutor, Prolotheos. Peace.”

A Song shall Be Composed

Urantia, August 25, 2019.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Song shall Be Composed.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “The secret desires of your heart are all known to Me. Your yearning to receive clear guidance from Me shall in due course be realized, depending of course on the time and dedication you invest in coming to Me in your Stillness.

“Jesus said that the Kingdom of heaven is within, but the entrance thereto is through simple trust and prayer. Believe and it shall be opened unto you. This is truly the most beautiful and yet so practical journey to embark upon.

“This journey shall bring you increasing peace of mind, healing balm for the emotionally distraught heart, and joy to the soul. There, a song shall be composed to glorify the Giver of life, the Sustainer, the Creator and Upholder of all things and yet unmade.

“It is He, who sets you free from your baser creature tendencies, like intolerance, impatience and selfishness. These and more shall fall away, and a more loving altruistic personality shall develop to be used in the service of humankind.

“Pray for more insight, pray for more understanding, and not just for yourself, but for all others you may come into contact with. It is My desire that you develop a strong and fragrant personality, which is not swayed by any outside influences, because you are finally realizing that I am the safest, purest and unconditionally loving Guide indwelling you.

“Dedicate yourself to listening more carefully, so you will develop the desire of your heart to become a pure channel for My teachings, rather than relying on your imagination, and what you may think you are perceiving.

“Be pure, be real, be sincere and honest of heart, for this is what I require of you.”

Consequences of Your Actions

Alabama, US of A, May 9, 2013.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Consequences of Your Actions.”

Message received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “Life can sometimes seem hard and unfair. However, the majority of the problems human beings face in this world are simply the consequences of their individual or collective actions. In most of the difficulties humans encounter, you can find a human cause and often some generations have had to overcome the problems created by their ancestors.

“But no generation has ever needed to face and resolve problems as complex and devastating as the generations that are currently being born. This world is experiencing the apex of materialism and the increased contact among different regions of the world has contributed to extend some social evils that used to be restricted to some geographical areas, promoting much superstition, prejudice, intolerance, mistrust, and fear. The people of this generation – those who control the natural resources and the direction of civilization – are acting in a way that benefits only those who belong to their inner group at the expense of the rest. They exploit the natural resources like never before and relentless ambition is the norm of success in the minds of most mortals.

“However, these are only the delivery pains of the birth of a new era. Many among you are realizing that this path will not bring a good outcome. The consequences of the irresponsible way in which many behave are becoming evident and this is the reason why so many raise their voices of alarm and warning, looking for an alternative and higher way to live their lives. Others who feel trapped by the inequality of the distribution of resources and by the rejection they feel to the way in which society dictates that they should live their lives, are starting to think independently. The seeds of change are germinating in human hearts and the spiritual light starts to shine with increased brightness in this earth.

“For many, the consequences of their way of life are already obvious. Some fortunate ones have searched within for the answers and have found the Father in their minds and their hearts. Some feel their unconditional love overflowing their being and they spontaneously share the truth they have discovered, and are becoming examples to their peers – beacons that illuminate the way to the goals of eternity. Nevertheless, the vast majority still lingers in confusion, apathy, and shortsighted materialism.

“The time to make a final decision is near. Your world is a part of the Supreme Being, a living world with a developing personality. This planet knows what it needs to promote balance and restore conditions to allow for higher growth, in harmony with the plans of the Creator. Just as human bodies have the inner wisdom to produce a fever when an infection is threatening the integrity of that entire system, our world possesses a higher intelligence that will shake things as needed in order to preserve planetary health.

“If human beings in this world don’t change the course of their decisions and actions they will sooner or later face the consequences of their actions. This will be a ‘judgement day’, not the judgement of an angry and vengeful god, but the natural consequences faced by those who pretend to impose their methods, conceived by their partial view of reality, over the divine will of the One who knows the end from the beginning and truly knows what is best path. On that day, everyone will realize the error of their ways and out of necessity they will have to make the needed corrections. Then, what was originally considered to be a tragedy will become the most important and relevant lesson for those who had to live through those times, a lesson that will raise the consciousness of the masses and will focus everyone’s attention on the divinity that lives within each one of you.

“This is the question: will you wait to face the dire consequences of your actions to realize that you are responsible for what happens in your world? Or will you use your wisdom to mitigate the fall and start to improve things here and now?”

Be the Living Proof

Oregon, July 13, 2019
Trinity Teacher Uteah
Subject: “Be the Living Proof”

Message received by Anyas

“Dedicate your life to the great work of showing how the critical material mind of man can triumph over the inertia of intellectual doubting when faced by the demonstration of the manifestation of living truth as it operates in the experience of spirit-born men an women who yield the fruits of the spirit in their lives, and who love one another, even as I have loved you.” [UB 181:02.26]

Teacher Uteah: “Indeed, man’s material mind is critical by nature, as it believes what it sees but doubts what is not part yet of its experience. The above recommendation was Jesus’ intimate farewell admonition to ‘doubting’ Thomas. Thomas did, at times, waver in his faith, as he filtered his beliefs through the sieve of his imperfect intellectual understanding and sense of discernment. However, once they passed that test, he never failed to take bold action.

“There is nothing wrong with closely examining any incoming data. It is advisable to do so, as each new ‘belief’ you embrace should add to the cohesiveness of your framework of belief. At times, a new understanding will prompt you to toss aside an obsolete one—trading them up.

“Those who are spirit-born have gained access to the invisible world of spiritual realities. As they garner valuable insights, they start living their lives, keeping eternal and higher objectives in mind and heart. The attainment of the absolute values they pursue cannot but mightily impact their character. Such a beautiful makeover becomes a manifestation of ‘living truth.’

“Indeed, only ‘living’ truth is productive. A mere intellectual agreement does not suffice to better the world. Actions matter over everything else. By being ‘truth-led’ in your actions, it becomes an agent of inner change—a change manifested through the authentic way you conduct your life. You then become a ‘living proof’ of the process of ‘yielding’ the fruits of the spirit. You start emitting power of attraction, as others come to desire what you have. Who would not wish to taste the peace that passes all understanding paired with the reassurance that their life is in the divine right order?”
