****20170304 Addition made
It has been a while since the last post so I thought that an update of what has been happening was in order.
God’s Way Ltd
- Was incorporated in September 2016.
- Purchased a property in November 2016.
- Has been engaging in some projects and the Directors have been learning how to direct.
- There is a lot of potential for the God’s Way project and I look forward to the year ahead.
Learning Centre early morning
November Assistance Groups – Understanding God’s Loving Laws:
Jesus and Mary shared, presented and gave the gift & opportunity to participate in another Assistance Group in November (they are filmed so the opportunity is available to ‘attend’ from your own home if you desire). They planned & prepared (over 500 hours), presented the two groups (over 60 hours all together) and then have spent the last two months producing all the information for public consumption (heaps more hours! link to where audio and video links will be posted when post production is complete is below).
It was a huge effort and from their own admission only a mere stroking of the surface of the subject matter.
There was so much to take in and now a life time of potential investigation to actually understand what Jesus and Mary were presenting. With God being an infinite being there is an infinite amount to find out so our education is infinite.
During the group it became apparent that a relationship with God is going to be essential in order to actually understand any of the higher laws of love. I found them to be very inspiring higher laws.
Personal Reflections on Attending AG3.2:
For me personally I got challenged, confronted emotionally in regards to how out of harmony with God’s Laws I am and how much I want my own ‘’law’. I felt relieved that I have just been mis-educated and that I have the opportunity to learn, grow and find out more. I liked that being in Harmony with Law makes life smooth and enjoyable filled with benefits and being out of harmony with Law makes it feel uncomfortable and painful. (I liked the first part rather than the second part. But It is good to know the consequences of breaking law as there is more incentive to stop and I felt less generally ‘stressed out’).
There was a lot of questions answered and fears alleviated and also fears and addictions highlighted during the groups.
It was an opportunity to see love in action and I now have an opportunity to experiment, investigate and apply the information and see what happens next.
Thank you to Jesus & Mary for the gift of the groups and opportunity to learn new things. And to J&M & Lena and Igor for your time, instruction and training in regards to filming, recording and set up and dismantling equipment during the group.

Thank you for the Donations:
I wanted to thank all of you who donated towards my time during the days that I helped out with the filming in the first Assistance Group. I am so grateful for your donations and they covered most of my accommodation costs for the group.
It is such a gift to have the opportunity to learn new skills in filming while listening to God’s Truth (snippets between concentration) and to receive donations for doing something that I really enjoy!
Pete & I would also like to thank those of you who have donated independently of the Assistance Groups, we are really grateful for the contributions that you have made and really appreciate the gift!
And lastly to thank various people, businesses and organisations for non-monetary gifts and donations that are just as valuable, such as scraps for our little property to help create soil, For volunteered time that helped us to complete our house and various jobs that needed doing. We appreciate the effort of your time and resources!
Little house in The Bush complete:
We finished off our little house in the bush and I moved in during December.
It is such a lovely place and we are enjoying the quiet and planning more projects on all sorts of topics including to help repair the property from an environmental perspective alongside repairing our souls.
Thanks Corny for all your work and attention to detail to make the house so lovely to live in.
Thanks to our visitors for the help in doing the final clean and tidy before move in day!
Jesus and Mary gave the gift of some training opportunities over the last few months with some people from overseas and it was an opportunity to learn new principles and skills and see what is really involved in post production of the Assistance Groups!
I have a lot of admiration for the skills and time Jesus gifts to get the material he and Mary create out to the world.
I think everyone learned a lot who was involved in the training programme and I am looking forward to implementing some of it in the up coming Volunteers Induction Programme and editing some video and audio material that I have been collaborating in creating recently.
God’s Way of Education Project:
Tristan and I did an introductory presentation for a small audience in early January.
It was fun and challenging all in one.
We had our first tastes of setting up a venue, recording everything and presenting.
There is lots to learn and we have the post production side of things to still come.
Tris and I are planning to do more videos on our ideas, desires and intentions in the near future for this project and an Adult/Parenting Education programme and we will be publishing them publically for those of you who are interested in learning more.
I would like to Thank Tris for his presentation and his time and mentoring of Pete and I and the kids on this project so far.
We want to thank those who helped us out before, during and after the event:
Jesus for training in audio, video & post production and how to give a presentation
Lena for audio and general set up advice and dismantling, video and editing advice
Nicky for being on Audience camera
Courtney & David for being our mic runners
Pete for cleaning and helping to organise the venue
Participants for coming along and creating an audience.
Particular thank you to those who asked questions!
Waterless Garden Presentation
Pete gave a presentation of the basic elements of setting up a waterless garden that can be scaled up or down. He also conveyed his love and the importance of worms as soil creators and how to set up a working wormfarm.
Basic Elements he covered:
- Water Reservoir
- Overflow – so soil does not get saturated and plants don’t die
- Wicking system – draws up water through a medium/s from the reservoir so that the garden remains ‘self watering’ (you need to top it up every few months or so)
- Soil – vital to nourish & feed the plants also how you can make it from your own waste and household ‘rubbish’
- Plants – determine the size of the garden you are going to make
Participants got to trial out methods of waterless garden creation in a practical demonstration. They experimented with a number of different construction methods and ideas inspired on the day.
The idea was to be able to go home and create your own waterless garden & worm farm, with the materials available to you (or a basic set up being able to be purchased for under $100 AUD at the local hardware store) and encourage people to recycle household waste. Including but not limited to: green waste, paper/cardboard etc, human manure and how these materials can create great soil with the help of the intelligent life such as worms.

Where we are at personally:
I have been so busy that it has been a bit crazy with little time to properly connect to myself. This has created some issues of ‘going away’ from myself when things have come up and going into management mode.
I have a little more time in the coming weeks and am going to take some time out (along with planning various projects) to find out how I feel about all the things that have been happening in my life.
Pete and I are sorting through a lot of relationship issues which we are finding challenging at times. But we hope that by breaking down all that is unloving in our relationship and working through the emotions of why it is this way we will get to a new place that is based on Love and Truth permanently.
We will see how it goes.
We have enjoyed the holidays with the kids and didn’t want them to end. We have been looking at Desire and how to create an environment that upholds loving positive change and our resistances to doing so each and every day.
Our consistency needs to become far more consistent and there is much room for improvement. We have noticed that if the emotions in us as parents don’t change and are not released it makes it difficult for the children to have the room to change.
Expecting children to change when you refuse to as a parent is hypocritical and we have some work to do on this personally.
There is so much to be grateful for in our lives and reflecting on the year gone by it has been full to the brim with opportunities and new learning experiences. I desire this year to keep growing and work through the issues that prevent a solid relationship with God. I am feeling challenged often and am so glad for the Assistance Group material so that I can go back and work through all the resistances and various issues that are presenting themselves.
Until next time
