Participants:  Mary (Michael), Melinda (Sena), and Tom (Malhai).
Elias arrives at 10:07 a.m. (Arrival time is 25 seconds)

ELIAS:  Good morning!

MELINDA:  Good morning, Elias!

TOM:  Good morning!

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  Ah!  We shall be engaging in a party!

TOM:  A party today, yeah!

MELINDA:  Yeah, definitely! (Elias and Melinda laugh)  Two’s a crowd, three’s a party!

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  And what shall we playfully engage this day?

TOM:  I’ll let you go first.

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  Put it on me, huh?  Hmm.  We could always talk about something silly, like the nature of reality or something!

ELIAS:  Ah! (Chuckling)

MELINDA:  Well, actually, I have a couple of questions, and then I guess I’ll let Tom take it, or we can just go freeform, or whatever strikes our fancy today.

ELIAS:  Very well.

MELINDA:  Okay.  I have a question about the orientation of my boyfriend, and his name is Steve, and I was wondering if you could help me with that.  I’m not sure whether he is soft or intermediate.

ELIAS:  Express to me, what is your impression?  Not your guess! (Laughing)

MELINDA:  Oh, darn it!  Because I was gonna say, my impression is confusion, Elias! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha!

MELINDA:  I’m leaning towards soft, but there’s some things that I don’t understand that seem to be causing conflict.  So, that’s kind of my ... I don’t think he’s common.  So, I guess my best impression would be soft, but I still have doubts. (Elias is chuckling softly throughout this response)

ELIAS:  And I shall express to you, you are correct.

MELINDA:  Oh, he IS soft!

ELIAS:  Yes.

MELINDA:  Okay.

ELIAS:  Now; you may also express to me your identification of confusion concerning conflict.

MELINDA:  The reason I got confused is because it seems to me that sometimes he and I are almost expressing different languages within communication.

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha!

MELINDA:  You don’t have to laugh so loud! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  (Grinning)  And this also may be an obvious indication to you, in validation of your impression that this individual holds this particular orientation.

I have expressed previously that in coupling two individuals holding this orientation of soft, there may be some expressions and aspects of conflict and confusion.  For objectively, it appears surfacely that you ARE speaking different languages at times, and at other times, it appears to you that you are quite easily understanding each other.  Therefore, you create this type of interaction that appears to be exhibiting itself in almost extremes.

This is quite commonly experienced within individuals that couple themselves together holding this particular orientation.  This particular orientation, as we have discussed previously, is quite interactive.  Now; it is interactive in a different manner from the other two orientations.

In this, as you create intimacy with another individual holding the orientation of soft, you also create a very strong and a very obvious mirroring.  You choose different manners in which you may be objectively expressing yourselves, but this is merely an exhibition, in objective terms, of the differences of individuals and the uniqueness of each individual’s perception.

These types of elements are displayed quite obviously by individuals holding this orientation of soft.  Therefore, as you interact with each other, it becomes more emphasized, in a manner of speaking.

You crystallize your own expression and your interaction with each other, which many times may become an actual irritation and confusion within each of the individuals, for your automatic responses are, in like manner to all other individuals, to be turning your attention outside of self and viewing the other individual, concerning yourself with the behavior and the choices and the expressions of the other individual.

Now; this becomes a conflicting situation with two individuals holding the orientation of soft, for you continue to express to each other a lack of allowance for that type of action; in a manner of speaking figuratively, as you may envision yourselves playing a game with a ball.

You as a soft individual may throw the ball to another individual which is common, and they may bounce the ball, and they may interact with the ball, and they shall bounce the ball back to you, and you may bounce the ball, and the game continues.

You may bounce the ball to an intermediate individual, and they shall occupy themselves for a lengthy time framework with the ball in their possession before bouncing the ball back to you.

Whereas, you may bounce the ball to another individual of soft orientation, and they shall NOT play with the ball.  They shall throw the ball directly back to you, (chuckling) in which your response is frustration and essentially the expression of, “No, do not throw the ball back to me.  I wish to be playing the game with you.”  And the individual shall express, “No, I shall throw the ball back to you.  It is not my ball.”  Or, they shall throw the ball to you, and you shall create the same action.  “No, it is not my ball.  You may play with your own ball, and I shall play with my own ball.” (Laughing)

MELINDA:  I think you’ve been listening in on some of our conversations, Elias! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Now; I may also express to you, as with any of these orientations, in coupling yourself with another individual of the same orientation, you may be creating a tremendous expression objectively in what you term to be fulfillment within the intimacy of the relationship.  For in actuality, you DO speak the same language, and you may allow yourselves a type of intimacy that you may experience more difficulty in accomplishing with an individual of another orientation.

There is also expressed an ease in understanding of your natural flows of energy, and you shall not question each other in certain expressions, for you each hold this underlying knowing that these are natural flows of energy, and they are familiar to you both.

But I may express to you that many, many, many individuals that hold the orientation of soft, and couple themselves with another individual holding this same orientation, may be quite challenged in the expression of turning their attention to self and allowing themselves to genuinely move into the expression of acceptance and trust of self.  For in these particular types of relationships, without that ingredient, so to speak, you may be likened to two identical magnets facing each other ...

MELINDA:  Ah, okay.

ELIAS:  ... and therefore repelling each other.

Whereas, as you allow yourselves each to be turning your attention to self, and not complying with the automatic action of holding your attention upon the behavior and choices and expressions of the other individual and questioning of those choices and creations, you shall turn yourself, as this magnet, and you shall allow yourselves to be moving in what you term to be the same direction.

You are not turning away from each other.  You merely allow yourselves, in focusing upon self, to turn yourselves and your perceptions slightly, that you may both move to the middle and affix yourselves there.

MELINDA:  Well, that makes a lot of sense, Elias.

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  I may express to you, this one particular orientation does create — many times — more challenges in their interactions in relationships temporarily, to the point that they allow themselves to be moving more easily in their natural flow and concerning themselves with self, whereas the other two orientations may challenge themselves in different manners.

The orientation of intermediate challenges itself in occupying its attention intensely with self, but wanting or desiring to be creating intimacy with other individuals.  But as their attention IS focused so very intensely upon self, they are not paying attention outside of self many times to BE drawing themselves to other individuals! (Chuckling humorously)

MELINDA:  Kind of a catch-22!

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha!

Those of the common orientation create more of an ease in a type of flexibility within the expressions of relationships.  These individuals may in actuality, in your objective physical viewing, create what you associate as being a successful relationship, and may move through their individual focuses and NOT be expressing a trust or an acceptance of self, and may BE focusing upon the other individual.  But as their attention is focused outwardly, their natural flow of energy moves in this type of an expression.

Therefore, there ARE situations in which individuals may not be experiencing conflict necessarily, in not moving in the expression of acceptance or trust of self, in the design of an intimate relationship.

MELINDA:  Okay.  Well, thank you. (Elias chuckles)  This is one that I’m gonna have to go back and reread before I digest all of it, I can tell that already.

ELIAS:  I shall express to you, you may discover an objective helpfulness in allowing yourself to be interactive at times with other individuals that create this type of a relationship.

As I have stated previously, you all draw yourselves to sameness, for this offers you a validation and a feeling of safety and reinforcement.  Therefore, temporarily you may be comforted, so to speak, in allowing yourself to be interactive with other individuals that are also creating this type of relationship, and allowing yourself the objective, outside validation that they too experience this type of phenomenon. (Chuckling)

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  Okay.  Well, that makes sense.  I think the trick is gonna be finding them, but I will certainly keep that in mind. (Elias chuckles)  Tom, I have another quick question, but do you want to take a turn now?

TOM:  No, that’s fine.  I’m enjoying this! (Laughing)  Being soft, you know?

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha!

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  Well, you were being soft and quiet over there, so I wanted to check.

Elias, for almost as long as I can remember — and Tom, you may relate to this too — I’ve felt, from time to time, a very deep yearning.  It’s almost a deep ache, and it has a sense of poignancy about it, and I don’t quite know what I’m yearning for.  I don’t know if you would have anything to offer on that or not, but if you do, I’d like to hear it. (Pause)

ELIAS:  (Gently)  There are other individuals, in like manner to yourself, that experience this type of feeling, and in this, many times it is objectively translated or channeled into a translation of association with relationships.

Now; many individuals associate this yearning, so to speak, with the relationships that they identify as “soul mates.”

I may express to you that this is a distortion, in actuality, of the actual communication.  It moves quite in relation to the mass belief systems that express that you are yearning for a completeness which you shall find in coupling yourself with another individual.

I may also express to you that as an individual, as you allow yourself to move beyond the surface identification of this type of yearning ... as you already have! (Chuckling)

MELINDA:  Thank you!  I had my fingers crossed on that one! (Laughing, and Elias chuckles)

ELIAS:  ...you allow yourself the recognition that in actuality, this is not what you are expressing to yourself.

You are not seeking this design of relationship — acquiring your “soul mate” or “split-apart” for your individual fulfillment — and allowing yourself to identify that this appears as what you may term to be a deeper type of yearning.  It may not necessarily be quelled by the interaction of another individual.

This is an expression of genuine seeking and yearning for the objective realization of the remembrance, which is you, in actuality.

In this, there are myriads of facets of yourself, myriads of expressions and aspects of yourself.  You are an extremely diverse and multidimensional being, and in knowing only partially one expression of yourself as this being, and not even knowing in completeness this one aspect, there becomes this recognition within you that there is much more to know.

And although you do hold a knowing of self in some respects, objectively you have also created this facade of separation, and therefore, there is a yearning within self to be reestablishing that remembrance in objective terms, and allowing yourself the fullness of the knowing and the experience in that knowing.

In a very physical type of example, you may express to yourself that this type of yearning may be likened — in some fashion, but in much more of a capacity — to the creation of an experience of extreme sexual elation within your physical experience.

In creating that type of experience merely once within your focus, you need not be concentrating within your thoughts concerning that experience, but the fulfillment in a physical manner of that type of experience may be so very encompassing that it may permeate many, many, many other experiences in an underlying manner throughout your focus, and therefore create within you a type of yearning to be experiencing that type of fullness again.

In a similar manner, you do hold an inward subjective knowing of the fullness of yourself in experience; of who and what you are.  But you have also created an objective separation within the reality that you experience, as projected through your perception.

Therefore, underlyingly, this knowing permeates all of your experiences throughout your focus, and at times, in a manner of speaking, surfaces to the point of occupying your thoughts and emotions in this longing to be re-experiencing this type of awareness and fulfillment.

Now; I shall also express to you that this type of longing or yearning may be experienced much more within this time framework [and] throughout the action of this shift in consciousness, for individuals ARE creating an action of widening their awareness.  Therefore, this particular emotional expression is allowed to be noticed and expressed more often and more freely.

TOM:  Like piercing the veils, so to speak?

ELIAS:  Yes.

TOM:  And that will lessen the yearning?

ELIAS:  As you move into widening your awareness and allowing yourselves more and more of your expression of fullness in your exploration within your physical experience, yes, you are correct.

MELINDA:  That makes sense, doesn’t it, Tom?

TOM:  Yes, it does.  Elias, if you don’t widen your awareness, you’ll create a little more trauma in association with that?

ELIAS:  Yes.

MELINDA:  Okay, that makes a lot of sense.  Your turn, Tom.

TOM:  My turn?  I thought we were partying here!  I’m not into asking questions anymore! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha!

TOM:  But I do have one thing that I wanted to bring up.  You were telling me about parlor tricks and manifesting turkey dinners, and I see you encouraging individuals to manifest apples and such things.

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha ha!  It is a challenge, my friend, to those individuals that hold quite strong beliefs that they do not possess the power or capability to BE manifesting in such manners!  Ha ha!

TOM:  (Laughing)  I understand, but just to clarify that for those who are gonna be reading this....

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha!  And I shall extend the challenge to ALL individuals, that they be examining the influence of their beliefs upon their perception that prevents them from creating these parlor tricks that they are so very impressed with!  Ha ha ha ha ha!

TOM:  And they’ll become child’s play, as I think we’ve talked about before, and they’ll lose the interest....

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha!  Ah, and I may express to you, there are much grander experiences to explore than the mere materialization of an apple within your hand! (Laughing)

TOM:  Definitely!

MELINDA:  I like that!

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha!  And once accomplished, may become quite boring! (Laughing)

TOM:  Oh, definitely that too!

ELIAS:  Although this is not to say that the movement into the accomplishment initially may not be quite satisfying and validating to the individual, as they allow themselves the genuine recognition that they ARE much more capable of creating these types of actions than their belief systems have allowed previously! (Laughing)

TOM:  Yes.  That’s piercing the veils, in one manner.

ELIAS:  Quite, (chuckling) and serves to be an objective validation to each of you.  You each seek out experiences and expressions within your focuses to be validating of yourselves in what you may be accomplishing, and testing your abilities in your power. (Chuckling)

TOM:  Yes, to break from that matrix of the beliefs.  Melinda, you said you were gonna use a shotgun to get rid of them! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Ha ha!

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  I was tired of trying to let the birds out of the cage.  I told Tom I was just gonna take a shotgun to ‘em!

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!  Ah, ha ha!  And we shall blow them out of the cage!  Ha ha ha!

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  So much for the patient approach!

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha!  Or, you may aim your cannon and blast away!

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  I notice he’s upgraded me to a cannon, Tom!

TOM:  (Laughing)  Well, with the amount that are in these cages, I can see that we may need the nuclear....

ELIAS:  Ah, you may be creating quite a messy situation of feathers!

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  True!

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha! (Pause)

TOM:  So do you ... I guess, like I said, I was gonna discuss that subject, which relates to, it appears that perception is the key to creating and manifesting any of these things — which as long as you allow “it matters not,” you’re moving in the energy — and not to use the thought process.

ELIAS:  You may be incorporating your thought process, but do not confuse yourselves in the association that your thought process is the sole expression that shall be creating any of these manifestations.

TOM:  It’s kind of like a starter point, but if you hold onto that, you seem to many times interfere with your creations.

ELIAS:  Many times, for you are very fond of complicating your processes, and as you continue to incorporate more and more thought processes, you evaluate and you occupy your attention so fully with your thoughts that you are not paying attention to what you are creating ... or what you are NOT creating! (Chuckling)

TOM:  (Laughing)  Exactly.

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  Yep!

ELIAS:  You are masters at creating distraction! (Chuckling)

TOM:  (Laughing)  We turn our attention away, and then we express that we wish to create this and we don’t.

ELIAS:  Quite!  This be the reason that it is quite easily expressed by myself to individuals to be distracting of themselves, for I hold the awareness that this is a quite easily expressed accomplishment with you all, for you are quite accomplished in the creation of distraction.

This is not to say that the action of distraction may not be beneficial or purposeful many times, or that it is bad to be distracting of yourself.  But if you are expressing a desire to be focusing your attention specifically, it is contrary to your desire to be incorporating distraction.  But distraction is an automatic action.  It is very familiar to you.

TOM:  It appears that we are moving into a new wave at the end of this year.  Would you like to reveal that in this session?

ELIAS:  You are not quite creating the movement yet.  Therefore, I shall reserve my interaction in discussion of new waves in consciousness, for you are quite occupied presently in the continuation of the addressment to duplicity, and I may express to you that you have much to occupy yourselves with in THIS particular belief system! (Chuckling)

I may express to you also that many individuals are merely allowing themselves the identification of the aspects of duplicity, and not quite creating the movement into addressing to any of these aspects yet. (Chuckling)

TOM:  Well, in linear terms, that may take quite some time.

ELIAS:  (Laughing)  Or, you may surprise yourselves at how quickly you may be moving, if you are so choosing!

TOM:  Yes.  There are days, though, when we ... I guess myself, I sit and wonder how we can accomplish all this in the next 50 to 75 years.

ELIAS:  Ah, but view how very much you have accomplished in the mere 100 years that you have already created!

TOM:  That’s true.

MELINDA:  Yeah. (Elias chuckles)

TOM:  There’s been quite a shift.

ELIAS:  Quite!  You have created more of an intensity of movement — objectively and subjectively — within your previous 100 years than you have throughout ALL of your time frameworks throughout your history.

TOM:  Oh, definitely.

MELINDA:  Yeah, it seems as if everything is shifting exponentially now.  It’s just so quick and so rapid.

ELIAS:  Yes, and you continue to accelerate.  I may express to you also, in a type of continuation of a subject that I have engaged with another individual of yesterday, that all of you collectively are in actuality accelerating your movement, AND your movement of time.

MELINDA:  Hmm!

ELIAS:  In this, you create this action by individually accelerating your own energy.  As each of you creates an expression of excitement within you, you also accelerate the speed of your energy and its expression, and as you create this type of action en masse, you also accelerate the movement of consciousness in the accomplishment of this shift, and this is evidence, objectively AND subjectively.

TOM:  It’s affecting the element of time also?

ELIAS:  Quite!  You are allowing yourselves to become more aware objectively of perception, and you are allowing yourselves more of an identification and definition of perception as the instrument that creates your reality, acknowledging that this instrument holds the power to be manipulating ANY configuration of energy within consciousness, of which time is a configuration.

In this, you do not “imagine” that you are experiencing differences in the flow of your linear time framework — you are in actuality creating alterations of your perceptions, which IS creating alterations of time.

You shall also be objectively noticing, now and futurely, more and more, that as you express that you are experiencing an acceleration of time, many, many, many, many other individuals are in agreement with you, and are experiencing this same type of movement.  You are experiencing this same type of movement en masse, for you are in actuality creating it.

TOM:  Exactly.

MELINDA:  Yeah, I’ve noticed the whole time thing lately.  It’s just all over the place! (Elias chuckles)  I have five clocks in my house, and none of them keep the same time, no matter how often I set them, so I’m assuming that I’m not keeping the same time either! (Laughing)

TOM:  And that’s all changing, and it relates to this mass belief in aging too.  I think the perception is changing there too.

ELIAS:  Yes, you are correct.

You are, as I have stated previously, redefining all of your reality, and as you redefine it, you create your reality differently.  This incorporates ALL aspects of your reality.

The most affecting expression of the redefinition of your reality is the incorporation of the objective realization and knowing that there are no absolutes, which allows for the expression of elasticity.  It allows you to manipulate energy and create a flexibility in ALL of the designs of your reality.

Those aspects of your reality that have appeared to you previously to be absolutes and immobile in their definition are now being allowed, within the perceptions of individuals and en masse, to be defined as NOT absolutes, which offers you a genuine recognition of your power, of your ability, and of your participation in the actual creation of ALL of your reality.

You are moving from the identification of yourselves as observers of a physically created universe to participating active creators of that physical universe, and subsequently, you shall be moving into the definition and identification of being the CREATIONS also.

TOM:  Yeah, allowing us to do anything.

ELIAS:  Quite, and this shall be the expression of the lack of separation — the recognition that the objective appearance of physical matter, as holding solidity and displaying separateness, is merely an illusion, and that this illusion may be penetrated in the knowing that all of the objects that you view within your reality, within your universe, are not in actuality separated from you, for they ARE you.

TOM:  And that would take care of our longings and yearnings.

ELIAS:  Yes.

Now; I may express to you also, you are moving in increments, but you are moving quite rapidly in these increments of objective understanding.

In this, allow yourselves the recognition of the separation that you create even within yourselves concerning other aspects of yourselves that you identify as other focuses.  You may objectively express to yourselves, to each other, even to me, that other focuses of you or of your essence are you.  But in actuality, you view them as a separate individual, a separate entity which occupies a separate time framework and space arrangement.

TOM:  And they’re not really separate.

ELIAS:  No.  They are simultaneous.  They are all present within this now and within the very space arrangement that you find yourself, for where you are, they are also, for they are you!

TOM:  Yeah, that’s a difficult one for us. (Elias chuckles)

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  I think that’s an understatement!  I was just sitting here thinking about identity, self-identity, and what you’re talking about, Elias, is just a complete and total redesign of what it means to be me.

ELIAS:  Quite.

MELINDA:  And I know what I’m used to thinking I feel like, and I think I can intellectually understand the concept of other focuses.  I kind of see it as a gestalt that is part of me, but to be able to say, “That’s me,” well, it doesn’t feel like the me that I know.

ELIAS:  Quite.

TOM:  I think there’s a point, though, that we come to where they do feel like us, and like you said, in increments — we are experiencing that in increments.

ELIAS:  Yes, and you are allowing yourselves to become familiar with you.  As I have stated in this interaction this day, you do not even allow yourselves the fullness of familiarity with THIS aspect of you, this you that you claim to know!  There are many, many, many expressions and aspects of you in this now that you recognize as you, that you are objectively unfamiliar with and are now discovering, and this is not incorporating all of the other you’s of you! (Chuckling)

TOM:  Well, it’s a lot to know! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Quite! (Laughing)

TOM:  And yet, the information comes so easily if you allow ... I keep referring to it as energy, but if you allow the energy to flow, it seems to come so easily.

ELIAS:  You are correct.

In actuality, this is the key, and this be the reason that I express to individuals quite frequently to allow themselves to relax and move into an expression of acceptance, for this creates, in a manner of speaking, a milieu that allows you to be creating that ease in which you SHALL become familiar with self and redefine your reality.

TOM:  And be multi ... I don’t think multidimensional is even the correct term now, in trying to define it anyway.

ELIAS:  (Chuckling)  It shall suffice within this now.

TOM:  For this moment.

ELIAS:  Correct. (Chuckling, and a pause)

TOM:  So, do you have a party hat on, Elias?

ELIAS:  Ah.  Sadly, I may express to you that Michael is not participating in the atmosphere of our party and fun, therefore is not accommodating myself with such expressions of garments.  Ha ha!  I shall be in communication with him and offering my instruction that he attempt to be incorporating the spirit of our celebration more fully futurely. (Chuckling, and Tom and Melinda crack up)

MELINDA:  I like that.  Yeah, get with the plan, Mary!

ELIAS:  Ha ha!

TOM:  You’re moving the blue plants around as per the contract also, correct?

ELIAS:  Quite!  I shall be quite compliant with our contractual agreement.  Far be it from myself to not be offering my attention to the demands of my comrades.  Ha ha!  Although I may express, it may have been accomplished quite simply with a mere request rather than a demand!  But individuals at times within physical focus, I suppose, express a necessity for forcefulness, therefore acknowledging themselves that they are being heard. (Chuckling)  Ha ha ha ha!

TOM:  (Laughing)  Exactly.  And that’s how it works here with our duplicity. (Elias chuckles)  We can’t be heard unless we shout!

ELIAS:  Quite! (Chuckling)

TOM:  Well, Melinda, do you have anything further?

MELINDA:  No, nothing comes to mind right now.  How ‘bout you?

TOM:  Oh, I guess I’m just enjoying the exchange.  Like I said, I have no questions, and I know ... it appears that you tie all these private sessions together in subject matter.

ELIAS:  (Laughing)  Quite accomplished, am I not?

TOM:  Yes, you are! (Laughing)

MELINDA:  One point for Elias! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha!  I shall be offering myself a degree in accomplishment, that I may be acknowledged by all of you within physical focus.  Perhaps I shall entitle this “The Degree of God.” (Grinning smugly)

MELINDA:  (Laughing)  Elias, I hate to tell you this, but that one’s been taken.  You’ll have to come up with something else!

ELIAS:  HA HA HA!  Very well.  A very small word, regardless.  I may be incorporating some expression much more grand! (Grinning)

MELINDA:  Yes, definitely!  I love it! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  Ha ha ha ha ha!

TOM:  Sounds great to me! (Laughing)

ELIAS:  I shall create my individual professorship! (Chuckling)

MELINDA:  I like that.

TOM:  We’ll have to have a certificate printed for you.

ELIAS:  Ah! (Laughing)

MELINDA:  That’s true!  He’s gotta be official!

TOM:  Yes, make it official!

ELIAS:  (Grinning)  I express my great affection to you both, and my expression of pleasure in engaging our fun this day! (Chuckling)

TOM:  It’s been great.

MELINDA:  It has been.  This is a lot of fun!

ELIAS:  I shall offer an expression of encouragement and energy to you each in your endeavors and adventures presently, and until our next meeting.  To you both in friendship and lovingness, au revoir.

TOM:  Au revoir.

MELINDA:  Thank you, Elias.  Goodbye.

Elias departs at 11:12 a.m.
