(from Leslee Hare, with Adrial’s guidance; originally posted on Spirit Train Chronicles)
I’d like to share a little about Mark Kimmel, the Institute Of Light, Athabantian, Abi-Qor, and Athabanthos…
Mark is, you might say, our Dad, or at least a great inspiration and instigator to what we’re all doing right now…
He’s the original Athabantian connection here on Gaia, and has been in touch with the Crew for many years. He introduced me to Adrial, and it was through him that I interviewed with Adrial, and She asked me to get this ball rolling.
We don’t hear from Mark much, but I feel (and Adrial confirms) that he is connected with us all telepathically. He also has a particularly strong connection with Bren-Ton (I believe they are the same continuum), so those of you who feel a strong connection with Bren-Ton will probably deeply enjoy reading his messages on Cosmic Paradigm.
For several years, Mark has been posting Athabantian Crew messages there. There is a page for messages from the Crew, including Adrial, Bren-Ton, Ro-Tan, Justine, Moraine, and I’m sure I’m forgetting others.
There is also a page called Mark’s Corner, where he shares his personal insights and observations about Athabantian and Abi-Qor related items.
You may also purchase and download an e-book of the earlier messages – it is well worth the $3.95!
You may not have heard much about the Cosmic Paradigm site, because it’s mostly informational, and there isn’t any commenting going on.
(This seems to be mirrored in how Up2the5th is evolving into an info resource for Athabantian Crew, whereas Spirit Train Chronicles is where the Athabantian Crew gather, and 2012 Indy Info is where the Aurora Crew gather, for sharing and discussion…)
I gather that Mark’s role is to provide local focus in the Pagosa Springs area (which include Abi-Qor and Athabanthos!) The significance of this is explained in more detail on the CP site.
Mark formed the non-profit Institute of Light, and anchors it in this world, and with IOL, is helping clear the way for our Ascension.
Abi-Qor is a 5D version of the Institute, but it is also much more than that. It is in the planning stages right now, and I have seen it in dreams. It is vast and beautiful, like a radiant jewel, and it is a place where we may all reside, if we so choose, once we have completely ascended into 5D.
You can read more on all of this, at at Cosmic Paradigm.
Adrial tells me that Abi-Qor is the reason I was led into a career in architecture. Mark has asked me, “Maybe give a little thought as to what Abi-Qor looks like”, in preparation for the Transformation 2012 Conference in August.
When I interviewed with Adrial, “she” (Adrial usually appears to me as a “she”… but, as a 9D being, Adry can take on any form Adry likes…) immediately gave me an assignment:
“Focus on gathering those who are ready for Ascension to 5D, and give them the tools they need to complete this process. Simply share what you already know. Remember who you are, and why you are here, and understand that you already have everything you need, within you. Share this with others. Your task is not to attract new people (that will be handled by others), but to work with those who are already very close to Ascension.
Adrial asked me if I understood the assignment. She also explained that I would seldom need to ask questions of Adrial or Mark, but that Adrial would be available for nudges. As She shared this with me, I received quite an instantaneous download of what was to be done, and I did understand.
It felt a little like being pushed out of the nest, but that’s how we learn to fly, eh?
So, back to our work together…
As I understand it, Abi-Qor already exists in 5D. We might say it is in Inner Earth, more or less underneath Pagosa Springs. One of my jobs is to “see” it and portray it to others. The more it appears in our minds, the more quickly it will manifest for all of us.
I think/hope that some of our recent experiences help to illustrate how this process works. Just think: Only 6 weeks ago, few of us had even heard of Athabantian. Look what has manifested within those 6 weeks!
Our minds are that powerful. We create and build as a team. We have worked together before. This is more a reunion than a recruitment. We know what to do. As Adrial says, now is our turn to set the example of “Walking Tall” in the face of dramatic change.
(Athabanthos is a region or city of Inner Gaia, which hosts Abi-Qor; Adrial told me about Athabanthos, and I do not recall reading about it elsewhere – yet…)
This all sort of blows my mind. I still have my moments of closing my eyes, crossing my fingers, holding my breath, and hoping this is all “for real”, but I think it’s safe to say that this “thing” really does seem to be drawing into manifestation as the days go by.
With the amazing Crews who are arising, I see more and more how “real” this project of Ascending to 5D is! It’s getting easier and easier to believe…
The conference is a wonderful chance to gather and meet Mark and many others… I have a hunch we will also talk about Abi-Qor…
I hope to see you all there, through one vehicle or another… I know that if we are meant to be there, we will find our way. I also know that that we may be “there” without being physically present.
I have a strong wish to be there (physically), and am really hoping to be able to drive… If anyone is interested in sharing the ride to Colorado, please let me know! Please email me (Leslee) at email@example.com. My route will somehow be Atlanta to Pagosa Springs…)
So much has happened for us so quickly! I stand in awe of what is unfolding, and am so deeply honored (and thrilled!) to be re-uniting with you all.
Transformation 2012 Conference in Pagosa Springs, Colorado (US), August 16-18, 2012!
Much love an blessings to you all!
