Mentori Spokesperson: “On this day of the Equinox, when Summer turns into Fall, many people are waking up and praying for peace on this dark planet, rife with wars and rumor of wars. Right now it would be expedient for you to remember that peace must begin in each human heart. The problem is that most words for peace are hollow, because they are not coming from inner actions to change the person from within. The problem is that these calls for peace, even though they sound wonderful, are machinations of the minds that have no origin in the heart, so worthwhile actions are not being taken to do away with all your war machinery. Materialism is seen as all-important, so there is hardly any room left for personal spirituality.
“What will it take for humankind – all thinking individuals included – to wake up and start thinking about time wasted on material pursuits? Truly, how will you feel once you have entered upon the next stage of your eternal existence? For this is the meaning and purpose of your life in the flesh, that in looking back over your life on earth you will see the good you have done as well as the time you will have squandered. It is important here and now that you fully realize that your becoming more spiritual must be your aim, if you are choosing eternal life during this mortal existence on planet earth.
“Will you be filled with regret and bemoan the fact that too little time was used by you to generate peaceful feelings towards one another? Did you practice forgiveness on a consistent basis? Did you remember to feed the poor and sick, who could not fend for themselves? Did you help someone who needed a hand to get back on his or her feet? What use were you to the planet at large, however little this usefulness might have been. Start thinking and behaving responsibly, as if God matters, always and in all things, for indeed, He does.
“It is the Creator’s prerogative to bestow upon each person the wonderful and precious gifts of life and free will. The purpose for which you have been given life, seems to be lost on most people. First of all, you are here to refine your character through self-discipline and for building on your life for your next stage of existence. You do this by developing ‘the love factor’ in you. This ought to be developed in the earliest years of existence by loving and concerned parents who only want to provide the best in meaning and value of security and acceptance to their offspring. This is done through loving discipline, so children learn from their parents’ example how to be happy and stable citizens.”

Mentori Spokesperson: “Life is not meant to be used for obsessively gathering earthly possessions. Even so, the world appears to be functioning in such a way. Having been given life it behoves for all of you to wake up and become caretakers and peacemakers on this beautiful garden planet, whose beautiful face is marred more and ever more by thieves and robbers, to the peril of their eternal souls.
“Doesn’t anyone engage in deep thinking anymore to discover the why’s and the wherefore’s of life itself? Are you so bedazzled in your thinking that you all have become followers and slaves of the few, who are slowly and surely enslaving you to use you the way they see fit? Where does this materialism get the planet and its people? Instead of moving forward, you are en masse regressing into the dark ages where from you came. Think of how the most wonderful inventions to benefit humankind have been suppressed, and worse, used for more efficient killing machines. Where is the reasoning in all of this?
“The many God-inspired inventions which would have propelled this world into a more peaceful estate, have been eroded, their inventors imprisoned and tortured. These matters do not even reach the attention of common folk. They sleep on and instead of being people have become sheeple, as they are blind believers of whatever the news and entertainment media feeds them, and whatever their leaders and priests teach them. Where are the true gospels and teachings of the Fatherhood of God and brother/sisterhood of humankind?
“You have arrived at a critical time in your planet’s evolution toward its destiny of Light and Life. It is appropriate for you to take responsibility for your spiritual health and well-being. Do not be spoon fed by those, who themselves flounder in the dark. They have become expert at covering up their crimes against the innocent ones on the planet, whose personalities are forever altered by what has been perpetrated against them. And these un-progressive, so-called leaders of the people are still following outmoded laws with the do's and don'ts of useless and meaningless ceremonies.
Please do favor yourselves by waking up to a more simple way of living. Start honoring the God within each one of you and work on a change in your hearts so you may gain the peace which you unconsciously desire.”
