Teacher: Teacher Ophelius
Yes, I am here, the Circle is here, and we are ready to begin. Good morning dear one, it is I, Ophelius, and this morning I would like to speak to those who would later read these messages, and especially to those who receive the prompts. Each and every one of you has the opportunity and the ability to ask for and receive a teacher. There are many teachers available now to the people of Urantia in this Correcting Time, and we are all awaiting our call to duty. You dear one are no more special than any of your brothers and sisters, yet you have taken that leap of faith, have asked, and have received. All are capable, to some extent, according to their gifts, to receive our messages if they would earnestly seek that spiritual connection and fear not that they would fail. Even your first attempts at receiving were crude and unorganized, but still our signature was there even in its most rudimentary form—yet, you were not discouraged and persevered.
We cannot pull out of you more than what you are capable of understanding, and we can only speak at the vocabulary level that you have attained thus far in your short lives. The greater the vocabulary, the more eloquently we may speak. Those that are less educated may feel inadequate or intimidated by the works of others, but this should not discourage them, for even truth in its simplest form is more potent than any Shakespearian monologue.
It is helpful for those who would receive, that a pattern of time be arranged so that all the needed resources can be consistently made available to you. We suggest early morning before the mind is fully active or any time when the mind can be stilled where there is no interruption.
Now this I will make clear to those who ask for a teacher—that your intension is pure and your motive is clear, that you would receive truth and knowledge for the enlightenment of your soul and for the benefit of your brothers and sisters. Like attracts like, and when you ask for a teacher, a dispatch is sent out, and a suitable match is found. If your motives are only that of curiosity and sensationalism, that request will be denied. There is no shortage of teachers here I can assure you dear one, for we delight at the opportunity to reach out to you on the earth plane and lift you up as far as your faith will allow. For we are bound by the law of free will and can do nothing until it is asked for. Free will trumps all spirit prerogatives dear one, you must ask to receive, you must seek to find, and you must knock and the door will be opened unto you.
