MACHIVENTA: Good morning, this is Machiventa Melchizedek. I appreciate your presence here today so we can engage the future as it unfolds and develops. Do you have any opening comments to start with before I have my opening statement?
Roxie: Machiventa, I did receive two replies to your request in our last session. The first one is a comment, as there is no question in it. He says:
“You are receiving many responses to this wonderful news, I am sure! I wish to offer one observation, namely the hope that the arrival of an Avonal Son will be soon due to the critical state of affairs in our government and the resulting effects world-wide!
There are many among us who may have speculated that nothing short of divine intervention offers hope for the way out of our present dire circumstances. My wife and I are praying for this heavenly assistance from an Avonal Son, and we urge everyone who is reading NET #12 to do likewise!” Signed: “Peace and One Love,” from Hawaii.
MACHIVENTA: Thank you.
Roxie: And the second one I received has a couple of questions that are both closely related. He says, “I have a question for Machiventa. What is the relationship of the timing of the Planetary Prince and staff’s materialization with that of the Magisterial Son’s? Will this include any Material Sons?”
MACHIVENTA: I will defer answering this question.
1. Willing change into creation
These sessions are, and have been an attempt to bring your thinking up to speed, meaning the speed of developments that will occur when the Avonal Son will appear. By presenting you with these situations, we are striving for you to put yourself into that place and begin using your intelligence to understand the situation and what we are striving to achieve, and to do so with you. Remember, this is a co-creative effort and nothing will be accomplished until you are able to also create the will-initiative to have things done. If you see that something needs to be done, then you must act on it and will that into creation. I have taught you before, as Christ Michael has, that this is a co-creative endeavor that if you see something that needs to be done, and that if you will it to occur with our assistance, and it causes no harm and does not embellish your ego and would not result in fear, or is initiated out of fear, then we invite you to will this into existence with our assistance. This may sound rather audacious and require a tremendous amount of inner fortitude to take on the position of a Creator Son, but you are in the right place and the right time to garner immense experience and training and practice and understanding of what it is like to be a Creator Son. You must begin in little things as well as in large. When you pray to the angels and ask them to help your children in school to avoid the bullies, or to assist them with a clear mind in their classes, and you ask us to assist in that process, then you truly are willing this thing into existence.
So too, must you act courageously in these larger matters of the intervention and participation of an Avonal Son in your world. You are the forward thinkers and conscious will-believers who can effect this very handily for our approach. We cannot do this alone; you must create with us, and if you see us as your work crew, we are most willing to have you act as the supervisor or the initiator of actions to be done. If you were a contractor and you hired a number of individuals to work on your crew, you would give them directions of what to do, and you tell them to proceed at such-and-such a time, or immediately, and of course they would.
2. Checking your own arrogance and ego
This is an opportunity for you to check your own arrogance, your own ego, your own efforts of self-aggrandizement, fears, and also your humility. You must help us do this; you must not lay by the side, waiting as a bystander to see what unfolds, because if you were standing on the corner and you saw a bus approach the corner and you needed to get on it, you would raise your hands, step a foot into the street and wave to the driver who would stop. However, if you were the same person at the corner and just stood there, and the bus driver saw you standing there and not indicating you needed to use the bus, he would simply pass by. So too, you are in this world seeing many things happen. Do not be bystanders watching things not unfold, but become active individuals to engage the future as it approaches you. This gives you some assistance in working with us co-creatively.
3. Working with the Avonal Son
Now, I have a scenario I want you to grasp fully: Let us say that you and your household were playing host to the Avonal Son. The Avonal Son had walked up to your house, and knocked on the door; you recognized this individual and asked him to enter your home. After staying there a few days with you, you finally have the courage to ask the Avonal Son a question, or present a statement to him for action. You say to him, “Our neighbors, husband and wife and two children are constantly at war with each other and they are very disruptive to the neighborhood and to themselves. They are physically, verbally, and socially combative and are of little assistance to each other to grow into the potential that they have. Would you be willing to assist in this process?” Upon which the Avonal Son says, “Yes, I would be glad to.”
So all of you walk over to the neighbor’s house, knock on the door. Upon entering, the Avonal Son is recognized as a being of great Divine stature. And so, you have asked the Avonal Son to help the family heal themselves, at which the Avonal Son can use any number of levels of intervention to assist them to come to the realization that the way they have been living their lives has been dysfunctional, detrimental, and destructive. Let us say that you have asked the Avonal Son to heal this family, and so the Avonal Son agrees to your request and heals the family, upon which this family is in shock at the way they feel and how they feel about each other. You say, “Thank you” to the Avonal Son and you all withdraw from the family that has been healed.
What is missing from this scenario? You have recognized a need. The immediate need has been fulfilled and yet the family is left in personal and familial disarray. They know that what they have been doing has been very destructive. The parents realize that their children and their eventual grandchildren could eventually lead functional and productive lives, if they knew how. How will this family reconstruct themselves? What is missing to fulfill this healing to its fullest extent?
Though the Avonal Son can heal their minds and has given them a clear understanding of the value and relationship of each and all of the members of this family, what he cannot do is to make the decisions for them to choose how to live new, productive lives. What is missing from this miraculous healing is the other half of this event: The co-creative participation of mortals to teach, train, and enculturate this tabula rasa with the values, beliefs, and expectations that accompany responsible personal and social living. What is needed is a social program that provides the fundamentals of living in a socially sustainable family, community, society, and culture.
What resources do they have available to bring them into this 3rd millennium of peace on your world? This is both a rhetorical and a practical question: You see when you call for the Avonal Son to come to your planet and to heal all the dysfunction that is going on, then what would happen? People would be wandering around dithering about not knowing whether to go to work or not. They would be wondering how to live with each other; they would wonder how to continue on raising their children—and how to raise their children in a productive and spiritually infused way.
If you extend this scenario to the planetary level, you can see that Christ Michael, the Triumvirate, has anticipated the need for training, educating, and enculturating Urantia’s billions with the values, beliefs, and expectations that will bring about social, political, and economic stability, then social sustainability, and ultimately the Days of Light and Life. Now it is your turn to become the trainers and educators in the grand strategy to bring Urantia into the fold of functional and stable planets.
4. Having resources to reconstruct
You see what is missing from this miraculous plan of the Avonal Son coming to your planet is the necessity that your planet be prepared, with the resources available, to teach individuals what to know, what to do, and how to reconstruct their lives. It is one thing to tell a person that their life is in disarray and dysfunctional, but it is another thing to leave them with no means to reconstruct their life, to live in peace and enjoy life and living peacefully. So, I will ask the team here if you understand the juxtaposition and interrelatedness of the training program of social sustainability and the approach of the Avonal Son. Do the members understand this relationship, this necessity, this connection?
Craig: It has been from simply curing the negative to having positive things to take their place.
MACHIVENTA: Yes, you are very correct. It is essential that when your world is healed that individuals have something to rely upon to give them focus and direction and instructions in how to live their lives. In the absence of that, people will eventually wander back to the way they used to live and continue their destructive ways. You see, the effort of the Correcting Time and the approach of the Avonal Son are all connected. There must now be a means to assist your planet’s population to create itself in a sustainable way, to enjoy and appreciate the presence of an Avonal Son on the planet for the next 1,000 years. The Avonal Son’s presence on the planet is the assurance from Christ Michael and the Divine Father of All that they/we are present, that the universe of the Divine exists and that we are here to stay, here to assist you, as generations upon generations come into existence with the continued presence of the Avonal Son. Those who choose to be on the ascendant journey will have the means to do so effectively, and they will no longer be agondonters as you are.
5. Responsibility to create the world we want
It is important that you think of this as you reframe your thoughts about the approach of the Avonal Son, his presence here, and your responsibilities to create the world that you want. You see, peace is not something that you can get in a jar; it is a developmentally, eventual process of social evolution, both within society and within the family, where children become enculturated in the practices of peace. Peace is the summation of many, many developments of all the 7 values that exist, that have sustained your species. When you begin to express the three secondary values of social sustainability, then you are on the course of peace for yourself and for others to live effectively and empathically and with compassion for the concerns of others. To have this as a generalized love of humanity, you come to express the very best that the Creator empowered you to become. The potential within you truly is God-like, with a large “G”. When you live solely with the first three primary values to remain in existence and improve the quality of life, you have a choice between being humane, or to selfishly act in behalf of only your life at the cost of other people, and that does not produce peace.
We hope you enjoy and appreciate this connectedness as between the Correcting Time, the approach of the Avonal Son, his presence and continued presence here, and the values that have sustained your species for almost 8,000 generations, or approximately 200,000 years. You see, these values are not something that came upon your species instantaneously in the 21st Century; no, they have been with your species for a long time and their validation is assured through your own progress as individuals and as societies, and as a civilization. Now it is time to unfold the 3 secondary values individually and societally, and as a civilization for your world to come into the Days of Light and Life.
6. A daunting task
ML: The task before us is daunting, but mechanisms that you point to that give rise to hope that this daunting task literally goes from an individual and scales to millions. What kind of a precedence is there—if there is any—that would give us greater confidence that this could be done?
MACHIVENTA: Thank you for your question. The hope that exists is in the fact that Christ Michael has initiated the Correcting Time; the hope is in the evidence of the Teaching Mission and the Magisterial Mission, and now this Transition period that exists. The hope is that in the transmissions, revelations that have come through you and many others in the last 30, 40, or 50 years as an additive of revelation for the Urantia Book, the hope is existent. If you truly believe in what you are doing here today, then you must have hope that we will guide you through this daunting task, and the hope is that you—you as an individual, you as a father, you as a mother—have begun to teach your children and grandchildren the ways of peace, the ways of internal and personal growth that will assist them to live in peace and love and affection in their own families of procreation, that when they look back upon these years and decades they can be thankful for what their father and grandfather, mother and grandmothers gave them during this time.
7. Intention for research and development of training materials
The daunting task that you speak of has begun; it has begun in the efforts to discern best practices of child rearing from a period of time before conception by a couple who eventually become the mother and father of children who eventually, at approximately age 20 or so, leave their family of origin and move into society on their own. It is essential that this process of research begin. It is essential that these best practices be validated by the researchers on their own as they look through the materials for the best practices of how to raise loving children. The intention of that is two-fold: First is to have an intention for this research and for the development of those training materials for this span of time; and second, that there be an intention of the parents-to-be that they wish to raise their child who exits their family eventually in 20 years, as being happy and whole, content, curious and who can pursue their own course in life without a great deal of dependence upon the parents, though the resources of the parents and grandparents will continue to exist as those children seek the wisdom to live their lives more consistently and contentedly.
Those two intentions are vitally important. We are fully aware that there are tens of thousands of research papers and books written on childrearing in these various eras and periods of a child’s developmental era to approximately age 20 when they leave home. It is now a matter of finding best practices that produce those loving children. Do not forget that when you use these 7 core values to assess the materials that you also have in the back of your mind the 7 spheres of personal human development that are necessary to develop an individual to the age of 20 as a complete person, complete as possible at that time. These seven spheres include: the physical, mental, emotional, intellectual, social, cultural, and spiritual. These 7 areas must be addressed so that you know that you have completely examined all the materials for each developmental era of a child’s life. The remarkable thing of this task that I am setting before you for the planetary population is that this information is finite, and that you do not need to have great tomes of materials in each home to instruct parents how to raise their child to develop into a happy, whole individual. The materials will eventually be quite concise and available in different media to train parents and children how to live life peacefully and conscientiously.
8. Spiritual quickening
Liz: I feel that there is a spiritual quickening on this planet and it could be because of my involvement with social media. I think that the Pope and his way of looking at the world has made a big difference, as well as even though Christianity may be a little bit misguided, there is no question that he affects millions of people and that a new spotlight has been put on other major religions on this planet, mostly unfortunately, because of the bad actors that are associated with it brings into view the good actors that are associated with those religions. So, I have a couple of questions about that: First of all, is it true that there is a spiritual quickening that is happening on this planet, or am I just more aware?
MACHIVENTA: Both. First, Nebadonia has given her promise and her action to execute the spiritual infusion of your planet, and that there is definitely a quickening due to her response to the Correcting Time program and her participation with Christ Michael to bring your world into the Days of Light and Life eventually. These are not separate from each other, but they are co-creative with each other in the healing of this planet and the other planets that were in quarantine. It is essential that the Correcting Time program has a receptive audience. Even if you have a good product and you do not develop the audience to appreciate it and to use it then it will go to waste. Similarly, the Correcting Time program is an executive implementation of various programs co-creatively with mortals and those individuals who were so inclined to assist us. The spiritual infusion has begun to act, just as you have individually have noticed.
9. Representing our spirituality
Liz: Thank you. It seems as though when the planet is more, when the brotherhood of the planet is more aware, evenly if it is mildly misguided, it’s a short putt from there to what it is that we want to have accomplished. Personally, I am unable to call myself a Christian, because I believe that word has been politically co-opted—and it really doesn’t represent my spirituality—I’m wondering, is there is another word that we will be using other than agondonters, or Jesusonian—which doesn’t really represent me either—is there another word that we can use to identify ourselves?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, you will eventually discover that and you will be infused and enthused with the various words that will work for you. We work with individuals in their own conception of who they are, in accord with their Thought Adjuster. You already have a growing sentiment revolving around the word “Oneness,” and there are many words related to that, the integral aspect of spirituality, the holism of spiritual thought and brotherhood and sisterhood of humanity. These are all words that you are familiar with already, but we find though, the most genuine response without naming is the simple recognition that you have between yourself and others whom you meet, and for some reason you have an instantaneous affinity for them, an acceptance of who they are. You share a consciousness that is common to both of you, and that is the consciousness of Christ Michael’s and Nebadonia’s work on the planet, even without words, whether it is on a bus or elevator or a taxi, or some lobby of a hotel or other place, you find others around you who are like you. And so, without words you recognize each other, and this is the truest form of a “verbal” relationship that you recognize each other without words, words that cannot be abused or used maliciously by those who do not practice what you practice.
Liz: Thank you for that. The closest I’ve been able to come is just to identify as a “woman of faith,” and that seems to work for me and for the other people that I come in contact with. As I think about the arrival of the Avonal Son on this planet, it occurs to me that Christianity, for one, is big business and there will be a great push-back by those who profit from people’s fears and I don’t know what we can do to begin to bring the light into that particular world. Do you have a suggestion?
10. Making our services available
MACHIVENTA: You know our approach to selling our product and our service is to make it available. Those people who recognize it as it is a good thing come to it. We do not have an overt program or project to subvert or convert any established religious organizations. The infusion of Nebadonia’s Spirit and of consciousness of oneness is a huge factor in this development. Individuals, such as you see with Pope Francis, have a huge impact upon that organization. It now requires many millions of faithful followers to take up the lead that he has given to his followers to bring it actively into the local parishes. It is not an easy chore and you as a group of people who work with us, you continue to see this as a single generation or a ten year project, but we, however, see it as multi-generational and multi-century. The overturn of profit-making religion will be a slow process. What will actually happen is that as people fall away, they still seek the fellowship that they had before without the pompous religiosity that exists in the fading churches. This is where the “true religion” takes place; it takes place in the minds of individuals who seek fellowship with like-minded individuals to share their consciousness and then to do so in their personal lives and their families and their communities. We, as the Taoists have said, “Do not push the river.” We flow with the river and we are the river and we wish all of you to join us on this river of light.
11. Supporting entrainments
Liz: So I have just one other question, and that is a couple of weeks ago you spoke of two particular entrainments, and I am wondering if they are on track?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, they definitely are. You must realize that you can give support to entrained actions that are consistent with Christ Michael’s and Nebadonia’s program by willing that to come into existence. That may seem that you are a follower or a groupie, giving ascent to what is already been directed by the Creator, but your ascent, your agreement, your willful participation is essential to its accomplishment, and that your willful participation both as a will creature and as a will participant is essential to its accomplishment and the fulfillment of the nexus.
12. The new 7th core value
Craig: I was wondering that up until now we have been hearing of 6 core values and today is the first time I’ve heard of 7 core values. Could you please clarify that?
MACHIVENTA: Yes. This One, who I am speaking through, finally discerned that there are fully 7. Of course the ultimate value is “life.” That had been relegated to past thinking, which did not complete the holism of the value system of mortals. “Life” is the ultimate value of your species and of all species—sentient species—and even those that are not sentient. Life is a primary one around which the other 6 revolve to in a system of wholeness within them. It is essential that when you have empathy for others, you reach out in compassion that makes a circuit with the other people that appreciate the compassion. Your empathy and compassion enable them to improve their quality of life, and to grow into their wholeness, and that they have the opportunity to become equal in their empowerment, an expression of their innate potential as others. So you see, all of these 6 values spin around the axis of the first value of “life.” This finally completes the set of values. This One had fretted over this problem for many years as he realized that there is a system of numbers that works in the universe and 7 being the best combination of all, and that the 6 always seemed like an odd quantity. The unconscious thought was that something was missing. He missed the obvious as much as the other self-evident values that everyone else had missed; and he missed the primary one of “life.” Now the values set is complete for our documentation and the development of these concepts and morality that revolves around those values.
Quality of Life Growth Equality
* “Love” of humanity
13. Confusion of names
Craig: Thank you. It shows us how co-creative the TRing process is. Another question, and I hope this isn’t trivial, I’ve heard the name “Monjoronson” and then “Serara.” I was wondering why we have gotten two different names for the Magisterial Son, and it is just a bit confusing.
MACHIVENTA: It is confusing basically because of language sets. There are many names for “lion,” but they mean the same thing, and so, you English speakers think of “lion” as lion, and you think that is the way it should be, but other languages call this animal by a different name, but it means the same thing.
14. Working with the churches
Roxie: Liz brought up the subject of the churches, and my comment is: Concerning how the various churches, particularly how the Christian Churches react, I think we must wait and follow Monjoronson’s cues as to how to handle the various aspects that crop up so as not to overwhelm them. I’ve noticed that there is a tendency by those in the Urantia community to get overly zealous by trying to share so much data all at once that there is a ping-pong effect that only confuses people that are new to the concepts. Do you have any comments?
MACHIVENTA: Yes. You have perceived exactly how we will proceed with Monjoronson, the Avonal Son’s presence here. It will eventually—what we hope will occur—is that it will “dawn on people” that there is something new afoot in the world. Just as Liz has commented about the growing spiritual awareness in the world, this will continue and continue until it is obvious to almost everyone that there is something different about the world. They will begin to wonder what that is and want to know more about it. When people draw themselves into this enfoldment of spirituality and spiritual energy, they will be curious and will try to satisfy their curiosity. People are far more convinced when they have convinced themselves rather than when someone tries to overtly convince them. So this awakening process will continue until it “dawns” on people similarly as when they see the light coming over the horizon, then they realize that it is a new day.
15. Avoiding the “Divinity phenomenon”
Roxie: I think we should continue to teach the lessons of Jesus about the Father’s love and the Son’s mercy, the Father’s spiritual nature and the Son’s moral character, and also the lessons that Monjoronson taught on the common problems that currently beset us, rather than focusing on his unusual coming from Paradise, or we might fall into the same trap that the early Christian Churches did by focusing on Jesus’ miracles and resurrection, instead of the messages in his talks. Do you have any further comments on that?
MACHIVENTA: Yes, most definitely. First of all the “Divinity phenomenon,” as you explained will occur, of course, and some people will become inert and inactive and simply wait. The second part is that the Avonal Son will remain here, will not die on the cross and will not resurrect, but simply remain here as a presence who will not go away, and will continue to be a source of wisdom and guidance for people who wish to improve their world. When you have an ultimate source of wisdom who has come to assist in the healing of a planet with billions of individuals, they will seek answers. Thirdly, when it becomes apparent that no miracles are forthcoming, that the offer of co-creative participation in bringing those healing efforts into existence both for individuals, families, communities and whole societies, and that the hard labor of doing so is in front of them, then they will begin to see what they need to do, and that miracles are not here and not happening, but the presence of the hope of the future is here with the wisdom to guide those efforts. When this begins to happen, you will also realize that the Avonal Son’s regime or team of assistants is worldwide and available to assist, as are those of my own teams and Nebadonia’s teams and others.
16. Appealing to the spirituality of a person
Roxie: The Urantia Book says mankind can be united only through a spiritual approach; therefore, we must be bold and courageous in what we share with others through a simple spiritual appeal to their hungry souls. We will be challenged by the current materialistic age and confronted by current scientific knowledge that people will want proof of what we say and we must be ready to guide them into the self-evident values that apply to all men. We can appeal to their ethical recognition of social obligations and political duty. With today’s social unrest, this is a good time to draft new social rules and examine our current accepted values of morality. They need to be redefined for a lasting social function, predicated upon spiritual realities. Do you have any comments on that, please?
MACHIVENTA: We agree.
ML: I would say that was beautifully stated.
17. Building a large progressive middle
Roxie: Thank you, Michael. My last comment: Just as the Romans rebelled at the term “kingdom,” we must be careful of what we call social reconstruction and how we present it as meeting the needs of the public in a way that our current system does not. There are many lessons to be learned from the fall of the Roman Empire so that our new social institutions have a chance to succeed. The Urantia Book gives a list of what led to the crash of an empire. As we reform our democracy, we need to be alert to those problems as well as a host of current problems that need to be defined and addressed. We need to include both liberals and conservatives in our co-creative design teams to build a large progressive middle.
Am I getting too much ahead of myself in working on defining a new democracy, or should it be done now because the time is so right?
18. Moving into the future
MACHIVENTA: Yes, the time is “so right and ripe.” The duplications of history are all around you when you compare your current civilization and nations to the Roman Empire. We offer the Correcting Time and its various missions as a way of moving into the future, rather than being chased by the past. People will see the good of what is ahead and the hope of the future, rather than moving ahead from the fear of the past. With direction, a goal, and hope, you can make progress; but out of fear of replicating and duplicating what has occurred in the past, oftentimes there is no information in mind other than what has occurred. Christ Michael has given you a world to live in, to grow in and to become as individuals, and as a functional healed society. This is the goal and now we are here to provide the means. With this in mind, we know that we will make progress when you step into the big shoes of co-creativity with us.
Thank you and let us bring this to a close. Good day.
