Morontia Mind, or Mid Mind is what the Midwayer function
a human to become
a recipient of the first aspect of the Morontia Mind takes
a lot of meditation and "right living," and such
a recipient would be classed an Enlightened One—one
who may have unique contact with the spirit world—one
often classed as a wise one. The sudden arrival of this mind
endowment can truly upset the males—less often the
females, and possibly because Mother Spirit is the One who "supplies" that
new mind endowment. However, Selene Freeman was not so lucky,
and she told me:
“I did something really ridiculous. I moved into my
new home—it adjoins a farm like this place—and
I got it all set up for my yoga classes. Then I gave myself
a day off, just to relax and meditate. It had been raining
nonstop for two days, but then the sun came out. In the field,
next to my house, there appeared this huge circle of mushrooms.
It was a perfect circle! Perfect! And the crowns of the mushrooms
were almost touching each other. I stood by my window and
looked at this circle of white in that beautiful green grass,
and it seemed to call me. It did, truly, call me. And I went
outside and I slipped through the wire into the field. I
hopped into that circle and danced around like a six-year-old,
George. I can’t recall ever having done anything that
stupid, but I felt so elated. I was on a high that seemed
to have come from nowhere. Even hours of yoga, or meditation,
have never done that for me. It was only during the next
day that I began to worry about what people might have thought.
It still bothers me. I think I’m going mad.”
I figured it had simply been
a stressful time for Selene with a death in the family,
sold, a new home purchased
almost 800 miles from her regular haunts, and (would she
get enough yoga students?) setting up her classroom and wondering
about her success as a teacher. She knew no one in our area.
She was probably just a little "funny," I thought.
She had hardly been bathing in the town fountain, and been
recorded by a press photographer. That would have been a
little more serious.
Shortly afterwards, there
was a report of an enlightenment event more easily identified.
to watch it in retrospect,
and was granted a colorful view of it. I said, “Thank
you!” Then I heard a distinctly female voice, loud
and clear, “What about dancing around inside a ring
I cried, “Oh, no-o-o!” “Oh, yes!” sounded
the voice. It was filled with the dry but appropriate humor
of that very instant. Here was a Midwayer with a sense of
the ludicrous! It was time to telephone Selene Freeman, give
her the good news, and erase all human doubts.
