Machiventa: "This is Machiventa Melchizedek."
Sandy: "Hello Machiventa. We are glad for you to be in our presence today. I feel you have a lesson for us all."
Machiventa: "Yes, I do. And it is quite an important lesson. We will talk today about making a decision about spirituality -- your spirituality. It is time for many to make a decision, and to either decide whether you are walking with Christ Michael, or whether you are not.
"Many distractions of your material world are simply excuses for you to be on that side of the fence where you believe the grass is so much greener, and just every once in a while you may jump over the fence where Michael is waiting for you. However, after spending just a short time on the side with Michael, you get bored, and then you go back to a lifestyle of greed, and of feeding the ego with such things as believing that you know all the answers.
"You believe you can become angry, and that you must stay in control. You trust that if you cry out against your brothers and sisters, and insist on having power over them, they might follow you in your ideas, and, above all, that you need to prove you are better and smarter than they are, and they must change to your way of thinking.
"You may even call this leadership, when in fact you are truly lacking in faith.
"These human characteristics, such as anger, jealousy, greed, and countless more, take you away from the Father, and away from Michael.
"I must emphasize that you are hardly examining self, except in a way to further boost the ego that is trying hard to prove you are a step ahead of your brothers and sisters, but this is a deviation from the actual truth.
"Look at yourself and examine your true motives and your actions which make you believe you are the only one at the top of the mountain, while others are still struggling on their path of ascension. Make the decision that you are entirely with your fellows in attaining an unselfish program for doing the will of God in your daily life.
"Let us go to the other side of that fence now, and see the wisdom of the Father and of Michael, Who give us a pattern for living that truly is your way to happiness. Step back and examine the way you live your lives. Are you a humble man or woman who knows you do not have all the answers?
"You must look forward to a time when you will naturally strengthen the habit of "pulling toward" the awareness that God is at work in your daily lives. Give and you shall receive. Give to your brothers and sisters that unconditional love.
"Many of you so greatly fear what will happen if you were to become meek, unselfish, and were to give away the fruits of your labors. Hold on to the salvation that has been handed to you by Christ Michael, and love your neighbors, as you love yourself.
"You need to take care of yourself, and stay true to yourself in this way. Gather the fruits of life and give to yourself much of these immaterial things, such as courtesy, honesty and empathy, so that you will acquire much humble wisdom to understand and help others whenever you are needed.
"Christ Michael gives this chance to you all, and many times on every day, but it seems that you are often blinded and unaware of these chances to progress. Stop the merry-go-round of your life and watch for opportunities to do Gods will.
"This is a lesson not just for today, but the lesson for growing spiritually in your daily lives. I send my love to each of you.
"I am Machiventa."
