PART ONE: 15th December, 2005 AM There appears to be a crack in the wall of defences. The non-civil war may soon end. We have a prosecutor who is holding on tenaciously, and who will soon have the tentacles of the law around those who have perpetrated such injustice in our beloved land. Let there be celebrations, and joyful parades, with people waving flags and sounding their horns. Victory is ours. We have won the battle. Now comes time to win the peace. How many times has it occurred that the spoils of war also spoiled the peace? This time we shall plan, inch by inch, foot by foot, and mile by mile. Not one stone will be left unturned in our attempts to reach that which we aim for, which is the integrity of every man, woman and child to a free life of enjoyment and happiness. One way to determine which step to take in making plans for reconstruction is to determine what went wrong in the first place. How could this have occurred, that we were so duped into false security that our way of life was taken away from us? How could this have been prevented? The forces of dark cannot be seen in the daylight. (long pause) The forces of dark cannot be seen in the daylight. Therefore it is necessary to root them out. We will look into every nook and cranny, peer into every hole, in our search for those who have done any injustice to our land and to our people. How will we deal with them? As they have dealt with us? No, thank God. They will be treated fairly, but justly. We will have Truth Committees in every city, in every town; we will have town meetings, where those must confess to all that they have done. Will we forgive them? Yes we will, because we are people of God, and God forgives. It will soon be time to begin to set up Truth Committees. You may do it in this manner. Ten people can meet in a home, or in a church or in the local pool hall, and talk about a Truth Committee. If all 10 of those people are of the dark, they will not want a Truth Committee, and they will make no suggestions. Ten more people will meet in like manner. Perhaps two of them will want a Truth Committee. Those two will have another meeting, and perhaps four more will come forth, making six for the Committee. Finally you will have 10. The next move is to plan your strategy. A Truth Committee announces to the community the date of the first meeting, the place, the time. All members of the community are invited to attend. Who will turn out? Most persons who will attend will have no guilt in their heart. How will you persuade the guilty to attend? We now come to the painful part. Each citizen will speak for himself, and explain how he has been wronged. A recorder will write down the accusations, and the name or names of the accused. This procedure will be continued on a regular basis, say once a week, until all of the persons in the community who feel that they have been wronged, have come forth, with the names of their accused. The first 10 members of the Truth Committee, or others whom they may wish to select, will meet and plan a strategy. It will consist of a method to bring each accused forth. The next item is the selection of judges. These will not be judges of the law, nor need they be lawyers. These will be judges of the people. That is sufficient for today. I urge all who read this, to spread the word to your community, and to begin finding your first Ten Just Men. If you wish, copy my words and discuss them, and make your plans accordingly. Try to have the majority of the process in place by the end of January 2006. Be at peace, Soldiers of Truth. Be prepared to forgive and to reconcile. We are on the home stretch. We are heading home. May the sun shine on America once more. I am Abraham Lincoln, and my Messenger stands beside me, with a pure heart and a loving soul.
PART TWO: 15th December, 2005 PMThere is a time for frivolity and a time for serious work. Usually frivolity in the midst of serious work adds to the scheme of things. When the Truth Committees begin to form over the land, we will be receiving many questions. That is good. Questions are an excellent manner by which to learn something specific. On the agenda will be questions as to who will chair a Truth Committee. A Truth Committee is a group. A group does not require a chairman, but it does need a temporary facilitator. A facilitator usually calls the meeting to order, sets up a small agenda, explains the purpose of the meeting. In this case there may be people present who are unfamiliar with the conduct of a meeting. Therefore if there is someone in the Committee who has experience in conducting a meeting, ask that person to act as facilitator until others learn the technique. One of the techniques of a group that operates in tandem, is to limit the time of speaking to perhaps two minutes. A simple clock and a timekeeper will serve adequately. Another important function of a recorder is to take notes of what decisions were made. Voting can be done by a show of hands, a nod of the head, or a paper ballot. Do not meet for more than two hours. One hour should be sufficient. If there are questions about how to bring up the matter of the Truth Committee, write to the contactee whose name is given. Now we go to the topic of self-aggrandizement. I ask all members of the Truth Committee to be humble in their pursuit of truth. Do not follow the tactics of the violent TV shows. Follow the kindly mannerisms of the Buddhic people. Be silent, speak softly. You will be dealing with expressions of pain and suffering. This requires tact and gentleness. When a person stands or sits with you, who has been accused of wrongdoing, do not expose him to ridicule nor draw out his offences. The fact that he has appeared before you is a great punishment. To be accused by one's own fellow citizens is painful. Be kind. Perhaps you are guilty of small transgressions yourself. Our aim is for tolerance, forgiveness, reconciliation, and justice. When the accused appear before you, spend some time in silence. The facilitator may begin the session with silence, stating that he is allowing each person to connect with his Creator in whatever form that may be. When an accuser accuses his fellow citizen, what is the accused allowed to say? Allow him to speak his truth. (pause) I am very much aware that there are scoundrels in our community who have done numerous wrongs. Because a flow of funds will be coming to all American citizens, much of the pain that has been felt, will automatically be alleviated. This means that you need not be as harsh as you would need to be if the accuser continues to suffer at the hands of the accused. If the accuser is repaid, even from some other source, then I ask both accuser and accused to reconcile, and to begin again. What am I teaching you? I am teaching you forgiveness. This is what the man Jesus came to teach. If we follow that teaching, our country will renew itself in a very short time. I leave you now. Please meditate upon my words and take them into your heart. We shall conquer together. I am Abraham Lincoln. Heaven is pleading our cause.
