Spent most of the day walking the streets of the Orem/Provo area with Sheri.
First, we walked over 5 miles to get to Jamba Juice. We sat for a bit and drank our juice. I had a carrot/orange blend and Sheri had some kind of a soy concoction.
We then walked another bit to the gym where we spent 1/2 hour working out … well, I did a couple of exercises at least. :-)
We then walked over a mile to get to the movie theater where we enjoyed watching Moneyball. I thought it was a great movie, even for someone who doesn’t like baseball. Loosely based on a true story, it showed how money runs the sport and how sometimes the human side comes out in this world of “winning.”
After the movie we met Denton and Sydney Thiede for dinner, purposefully so that I could explain to Denton that he should do nothing for this work unless he comes through me. Denton has a heart and compassion comparable to few. There were comments made on the WUF discussion group that Denton wanted suggestions on how to prepare a movie for the work and that he had the financial means to fund it. I didn’t want people coming to Denton and trying to convince him to give them money to do something that they thought was good for this work.
Here’s the deal:
Is this work true or not?
If this work is true, then there are those who are much smarter than we are that are making the decisions for this work. And since they won’t let me out of my pre-mortal contract and commitment to be their messenger for this work …
… Wouldn’t you think that if they wanted something done that they would instruct me to do it?
Oh, the vain and foolish ways we come up with to satisfy our egos!
Let me explain a little about Rod Vessel’s venture to produce a movie covering the concepts of the WUF, as I mentioned him on the WUF website.
Rod spent a great deal of time and money to begin the production of a short film introducing some of the concepts of the WUF. He even asked me if one of the Brothers would play a part in the movie. What he doesn’t realize, although his love and compassion for people enticed him to believe in those whom he hired to make the film, is that not one of “those whom he hired to make the film” give a flying hoot about this MWAW®, and if Rod explained it to them they would think he was crazy. If ”those whom he hired to make the film” were the “right ones” to make the film, they would have used their resources and talents for free because they really believed in the principle.
Rod once asked me if he had my permission to produce the film. I told him that he never needed MY permission, and that he can do whatever his heart desires. So he did what his heart desired. Not only will the film, if it is ever finished, not go anywhere or influence anyone, but just the thought of producing the film is saying, “Hey, you who oversee the MWAW! You guys don’t have a clue what you’re doing and you need my help!”
No, we don’t need your help. You might need your help, but we don’t.
This work is all about getting the message to those who are searching … not to those who are searching for money and success in producing and directing films, but to those who are searching for truth. Whenever money is involved, there’s always an agenda that has nothing to do with real truth.
Please folks, don’t think you’re doing me and this work any good when you come up with things on your own to do for others. Do them for YOU, which is really the only person that benefits from the action. Let this work and its name alone.
For those who believe in the true purpose of the Book of Mormon:
Touch not the things which are sealed, for I will bring them forth in mine own due time; for I will show unto the children of men that I am able to do mine own work.
Then shall the Lord God say unto him: The learned shall not read them, for they have rejected them, and I am able to do mine own work; wherefore thou shalt read the words which I shall give unto thee.
There’s a reason why the world goes on like it does. The advanced monitors know exactly what needs to be done and doesn’t need to be done. The greatest peace anyone could gain from this work is knowing that: NOTHING IS REQUIRED OF YOU TO THINK ABOUT WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE! And if your ego can’t be settled, and you must do what your heart tells you, then do it! And then thanks so much for inferring thereby that I am a liar and that I am not told what needs to be done. :-)
A note of caution to all:
If you have a desire to do anything, then by all means, follow that desire. BUT NEVER RELATE THAT DESIRE IN ANY WAY TO THIS Marvelous Work and a Wonder®. For your desires are not our desires. Think about your desires. Where do they come from? Do they come from a sincere desire to help others, or a selfish desire to help yourself feel good about yourself?
Again, and again, and again,
If this work is true, then there is only ONE person who has the authority to make decisions for this work …
… and that one would be me.
Now, that there is arrogant! But true, ONLY in regards to this Marvelous Work and a Wonder®.
Have peace, enjoy life and let those who are responsible for our existence TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR OUR EXISTENCE!
