My intention is to make this short because there's little that I can think of to say to properly follow ArKay's messages. However, as ArKay said, don't be surprised if....
It has been my profound honor to work with this marvelous gentleman in the preparation of this first series of communications. More than once, I have found myself reading his words as they scrolled across my monitor, and feeling anguish for what we have become in our misguided quest for "freedom".
Perhaps it requires the views and perceptions of an outside observor to swing that two-by-four at our heads, to wake us up before it's too late.
In my capacity as the recorder and processor of his messages, I've been given many "off-line" conferences with ArKay, communications that will never be made public, but which offer deep insight into the workings of his mind and soul and spirit.
Rest assured that the concern that you read in his writings is genuine, that his toughness and frankness come not from any attitude of superiority, but from his commitment to assist us in lifting ourselves out of the moral pit that we are digging by our errors.
ArKay, the Korendians and the Alliance are here because they care. We are where they once were many centuries ago, and they know what it will take to leave our immaturity behind.
We are a haughty race, we humans of Earth, and one thing we don't like is advice from others, no matter that it's in our best interest. How much more so are we going to reject the wisdom and teachings from people of other worlds and star systems.
Yet, in them we are seeing what we can become. When we realize that we're not the quintessence of creation, but rather just one race of beings out of multiple millions throughout God's vast "house of many mansions", we can begin to grow in understanding of our real destiny in the universe.
These wonderful people, every bit as human as we are, have transcended the difficulties we now face, and want to share with us the path they followed in attaining a life of love and light.
The secret to their success is no secret at all. The Alliance (and the Confederation) live by God's laws, and they apply them rather than fighting or rejecting them. By so doing, they reap the benefits that God bestows upon his faithful children.
Twenty centuries ago, in another time of darkness and evil, a visitor from beyond our world came here to teach those who would listen. His words were spurned, and he was abused and finally put to death for his heresies against the established philosophies.
As time passed, the teachings of Jesus spread, and became the foundation for modern civilization. Let us now start anew the journey into light that began so long ago. Let us now follow God's laws into a glorious future in the brotherhood of all worlds.
I must offer an "olive branch" to those whose Confederation links might have caused them to take issue with the apparent harshness of the treatment given them in these communications.
The controversy that divides the Alliance and the Confederation is due to means, not ends. The goals of the two organizations are very much alike. However, the approach taken by the UWA on Earth has created the formal rift between the governing powers that ArKay mentioned on several occasions.
This divergence does not affect informal relations between the people. Their social and personal lives go on without interruption, and many groups have formed on both sides to plead for an end this high-level discord.
A few moments before I began this addendum, I conferred with ArKay to verify a few points that I wanted to make. In answer to my question on this subject, he said that although the two groups do not and probably will not see eye to eye on Alliance activities on Earth, movement toward reconciliation at the highest levels is under way.
The motivation for this is simple, and ArKay and I have spoken of it: the awesome, irresistible power of the laws of God. Both sides are listening to the Holy Truths that govern us all. Where man alone fails, man with God succeeds.
In one of his messages, ArKay suggested that I provide in this piece a brief description of the Korendian physiology. For this, I'm simply going to "splice in" a segment from the transcript of my tour of the PlatoComm lunar base in July of 1987, concerning this very subject. The text refers to my seeing the Korendian form on a base viewscreen for the first time. It's slightly edited to fit this format, but true to the original.
The "he" in the text is one of my Korendian associates, a member of the original team that first came to me in 1961. His name is Orii-Val, and a finer person you'll not soon find here or anywhere else (despite his occasional well-timed jibe if he feels that things are getting a bit too emotional or sentimental, but that's another story).
This is your 'new' Korendian body as of your last replica visit to our lovely little world. So, what do you think?" He looked over at me, and apparently noticed my stunned expression, because he leaned back in the seat and just smiled.
I'll grant that it's a heck of a way to talk about oneself, but from the Terran point of view, the Korendian is genuinely unlovely. Of course, as ArKay also mentioned, I found my Terran body equally disconcerting while I was in their form, so there's much to be said about beauty being only skin-deep, and in the eye of the beholder.
