Do you have favourite life form Verna?
No. I love them all. We don’t have such things as favourites, we have such things as more time being spent with certain ones, so we have more of an intimate understanding of them, but they still don’t become our favourites.
Okay, so what ones have you personally spent the most time with?
Verna, it becomes a little hard for me to imagine you being alive for so long, millions of years, I can’t begin to fathom what you’d do all that time.
Oh there’s always plenty to do James, and now is the most busy time of all for us with all the trouble and problems humanity are causing. You’d be surprised how soon the years pass, and as we don’t exist thinking in terms of years, so the ages come and go. We can’t relate to how you think in terms of years, but we can relate to life being short from a creatures point of view on the world. The creatures, by the way, are all short lived because of how short lived you are, and if you were to live for a thousand years, so the life spans of the creatures would be longer.
Are our lives comparatively short so as to provide us with the experiences we need?
Yes, to keep things moving along all the time, always in a state of change; change in keeping with the changes you’d make ordinarily in your life if you were living true to your soul and feelings, growing in truth. There’d be little value in having other creatures with you if they all lived for thousands of years when you only lived for seventy or so.
If that were the case, we’d have killed them all by now.
How long are we meant to live for?
Currently, twelve cycles of seven years, so eighty-four. That would comprise a full life were you perfect.
Why is it that some birds, for example, the sulphur crested cockatoo, lives for up to a hundred years, whereas another bird species, only twenty? What governs the length of life for a specie?
That’s all part of the Life Carriers pattern for that specie. They design, if you can call it that, all the different creatures, it’s part of their natural self-expression. As you speak with words articulating the feelings you feel, which you then understand with your mind, so the Life Carriers and speak with species so to speak, expressing the feelings they feel which result in a specie, then understanding how it all fits in with the whole ecosystem of Creation. They formulate the designs of the specie as a form of their self-expression, and then they submit such patterns and forms to the Divine Minister via certain angelic intermediaries, and She then acts upon them, and so we’re then allowed to bring such life forms into being.
The Life Carriers are the creators of the life plasm for a new world, and when it has been brought into spiritual existence, it contains all the ‘germ-plasm’ required to create all the projected life forms of that world; and they then bring it to us, and we through our light-sticks initiate life on the physical world. We brought all the initial elements together to enable the first bacteria to come into being. Bacterial life beings it all, from there branching out into whatever is required.
The Urantia Book says the Life Carriers implanted the life plasm in three spots in our primordial seas.
Yes, that’s right, we did it for them, three simultaneous implantations, each a different bacteria brought into being. There is what is called the Primary Bacterium, that being the equivalent words in English, it’s a number in our language, and this is what we initiate, and then using it we can work on bringing about over time all the necessary mutations required to eventually express all of the life plasm as living things. And we’re still working on it.
So the Life Carriers don’t actually come to the physical earth and dump a lot of goo in the warm seas that sets the ball rolling.
No, it’s far more romantic than that James. It’s the beginning of life on a barren life-less world. It’s a big event, and we being the true local inhabitants have the honour of getting the ball rolling. We’re here on the world before any living thing comes into being. We’re here in preparation for all life. We are given an aeon of time to set up, to get things ready for the big event. And I was brought into being in the first batch of a million nature spirits, so I’ve been here right from the start.
And when you say ‘being here’, that means you weren’t on the actual physical Earth, but in your earth plane.
Yes, that’s right. And that’s where the Life Carriers come to. And from our world acting on their spirit-goo as you might call it, we bring forth the actual physical life forms.
What was the Earth like back then?
Cold mostly, except for the equator, and full of black rocks and lava, not unlike our rooms in the mountain I was telling you about yesterday; except they’re not cold. We don’t have such a thing as hot and cold here in spirit.
I was thinking about your rooms, are they dark, being inside a mountain?
No, light, light everywhere, even in the darkest places of Earth, because we live in a spirit plane, not on the physical Earth, and our world is constantly lit by spirit light.
So when you go to the bottom of the deepest ocean, it’s still light down there for you.
Yes, even if we were to go into the centre of the Earth.
Have you been there?
Yes, many times.
What’s it like?
Hot and dark.
Dark, but light for you, right?
What’s it made of?
All the various elements, but some more than others.
Is it solid?
Yes. Like your scientists think it would be.
How come you won’t tell me in more detail?
It’s not within the parameters as to what I can tell you. We’re getting off the path so to speak. That’s all for other people to be told about by other’s of my kind, which we’ll get to later. As you’ve been told, you’re only to open the door into which other people can follow if they choose to, you’re not to do it all. And besides, you don’t actually care what the core of the Earth is made of, so I don’t give you more elaborate answers.
Yes, you’re right, I don’t. And it is off the path. I’m slowly becoming more aware of the path I’m moving down, and there’s no use straying as nothing much is forthcoming, either from you spirits or from life itself.
That’s right, we all have a path and we have to stay on it. Actually, it’s that we can’t stray from it. And my path is mine, unique to me and I can’t live someone else’s path or any part of it. We might cross or have some parts that seem similar and share some things in common, but that’s about all. And all of what I’m telling you now is all of what you can know on your path, so I can be more forthcoming with it. And it’s all that interests you anyway, you’d prefer, if you’re honest with yourself, writing and finding out about such things as this what I’m saying now, rather than what the core of the Earth is composed of.
It’s true, I would. I feel an ease of going along with you when you speak about the path and that sort of thing, the more spiritual aspects to it. I feel a stress and tension when I move into what the core of the Earth is composed of. I do feel it’s not for me, and I’m not interested. I know I’ll be able to go and see it in spirit if I want to, and that will do me.
You might find you won’t even do it, you might be happy hearing about it from someone else, it being their path to go and see it. I might even tell you then myself, but I can’t tell you now, as this sort of communication has to strictly comply with the limitations of your mind. But when you come to spirit, those same limitations won’t apply any longer, so I might be able to tell you what it was like for me.
Why won’t they apply any longer?
Because all we’re writing together is for humanity, not just for you personally, and so there is only so much I can say and so far I can go with each subject we focus on. All the rest is not for you, so it’s not for me to tell you. You have a very specific mandate as to what can be revealed to you by spirits, and we all abide by it. So when you move to the perimeter of that mandate, we all start to feel stressed and strained. And as you can’t cross over it, I’d have to say something like: I can’t tell you anymore about it; or, I can’t answer that question. So even if you might personally be interested in knowing more about certain subjects, if it’s not within the parameters of your revelation, it will have to wait until you come into spirit, when such limitations no longer apply.
Verna, I’m tired now, and it’s time to make dinner, I’ll probably speak to you tomorrow.
Until then, then.
Thank you Verna for all you’ve said.
It’s my pleasure to be sure James. Speak to you on the morrow.
