Seeking Faith Will
kyaybc: this is from the july 1, 1984 transcript at www.llresearch.org.
i copied alot of it below (you can read the rest by going to the above link)
because it is a great primer on on the awakening entity to seeking and how faith
and will play a part. it may seem simplistic of an explanation...but sometimes,
for me, it is good to go back and remember how simply it all fits together.
love and light.
"i am hatonn, and i greet you, my friends, in the love and in the light of our
infinite creator. we are privileged to be asked to join your group this evening.
though your group is small, we observe a great desire to know more of that which
you call the truth. my friends, we share that desire with you, and cannot claim
to know all that there is to know of the truth, but our experience has been such
that we have gained some knowledge of this truth. and what we have gained thus
far indicates in every degree that the greater portion of truth is what you call
love. the foundation of all knowing is that quality of being known to your
peoples so imperfectly as love. this quality of being is hidden within each
portion of your creation and within each entity in order that each might have
the opportunity to find it, for it has been our experience that there is nothing
but the love of the one creator with which the creator has made all that is
made, and that each portion of the one creation
seeks at its heart to purely manifest the love of which it is made and by which
power it moves and has its being.
many do not know that they are love and that they seek love. this is to say,
many do not know that they seek themselves. yet at some point, my friends, this
great yearning to know love and to seek the self becomes apparent to each person
so that a person becomes a seeker, a conscious pilgrim upon the great path of
evolution, as you might call it. and when the seeker who consciously seeks that
called truth, and that we have described as love, continues for some of what you
call time upon this path of seeking, there come the testing, the obstacles, and
the seeming difficulties upon the journey.
it is at such times that the seeker is provided an opportunity to demonstrate
the degree of its own understanding of love and to assess in some measure for
itself the further studies, shall we say, that are necessary in order to
continue to more and more purely manifest the love which is its source and
destination. the difficulties appear to be of a threatening nature, just as your
illusion appears to be many parts, each separate from the other. the illusion in
these facets is necessary in order that each seeker be able to gain the
spiritual strength from meeting the difficulty that would not be possible were
the illusion clearly perceived as an illusion. it must seem very real?that
difficulty and those tests?in order that the seeker will participate. for when
it is clearly known and experienced by the seeker that all is love, then the
testing is no longer necessary, and likewise the illusion is no longer
necessary, for the lessons available in that illusion have been taken advantage
of, have been learned, and then the seeker passes on to another class, we may
and what shall power the seeker through the testings and the difficulties when
it seems that there is not love anywhere, not within the self, not with the
other, not within the life experience, within any portion. the testings are of
what you may call a gradual nature so that no seeker is given more than the
seeker can bear, and as the experience is gained, there develops those qualities
that we might call the faith and the will that serve to power the seeker when
all seems lost and love seems no more.
the faith, my friends, is that which cannot be adequately defined, yet it is a
kind of knowing, for the roots of the being of each entity are one root in truth
and feed each entity as the entity travels the path of the seeker. this knowing
takes the form of what we might call faith, the knowing that somehow, in some
way and in some degree all is well and shall be well. this we may call the
faith. and as the experience continues for each seeker, growing with the faith
is another concept which we may call the power of the will. as the experience is
gathered, then the will is given the opportunity to be strengthened in order
that the journey might continue. the desire of the seeker is most important to
guide the will as it is exercised; then the faith holds that seeker?s focus
firmly upon the path of love."
