This story is talking… in the beginning, it talks about Abraham. Abraham, you know, right? (Yes.) The Jewish and the Arabs consider he is their forefather. So, this is talking about Abraham, that God loves him very much.

(Hallo, Master.) Hallo. (Hi.) Hallo. (Hallo, Master.) Oh. The girls can also join? They are here. (Yes, Master.) Can you see me? Or not yet? I will do my magic trick that I never did before. I’m trying. If it doesn’t work, don’t blame. I’m so excited. Can you see me now? (It’s calling. Yes, we can see You. Aah! Yes, Master. We can see You.) I see you. What kind of faces are you? OK, OK. Getting older, grey hair and everything. Look at me, me too, so join the club. Wow, wonderful, I’m so excited. I can’t believe we did this. (Yes, it’s great, Master.) I can’t believe this. I didn’t know it’s possible. I never thought like that before. You don’t look too bad. How do I look? (You look good, Master. You look beautiful, Master.) Because before I asked and they said, “Oh, it’s very tricky,” or “The face doesn’t look good…” I say, “What the heck?” My face looks always the same, good or not. (It’s good.) Doesn’t look too bad there? (It looks good.) (Looks nice.) (You look good.) Really? (Yes, really.) Oh, well. I just want to test, so I’m reading you a story. (Thank You, Master.) Girls, can you see me? (Yes, Master.) The girls, not you! You are a girl? Are you girls? Can you see me? Girls? (No, Master.) No? (No.) (The girls are audio only.) OK, OK. Next time we update, you update. OK? (Yes, Master.) We’re getting better all the time. You know that, right? (Yes, Master.) This is the proof. I can see you; you can see me. Wow, wonderful. I’m so happy. That’s why I said, “Oh, we do it right now before I lose it.”

Today it feels good, it feels good for a change. I mean, there are some bad things going on, always. But this is good, good. This is one of the good things to balance it, to balance it. (Yes, Master.) As you know, Jesus, He had one… Judas. I have many. I even had one recently. Even today. Today, bad news. Not in person, just through mails and stuff. (Oh.) But never mind, never mind. What I mean is, I have more Judas than Jesus, imagine that? (Oh.) I mean Judas exist everywhere. Just because I live a little longer than the Lord Jesus, otherwise if He lived as long as I now, He’d probably have more than I do, knowing that time of our planet. That time? (Yes, Master.) This time we are already better off, right? (Yes, Master.)

Like this, I have something to look toward. Because before, I sit alone, talk alone, I always look at the ceiling. You can see me, remember? My face was always looking up (Ah, yes.) because I don’t know what else to do, I just look anywhere. And my eyes are always upward or sideways. Right now, can you see my eyes in front of you? (Yes, Master.) OK. I’m trying. Because my iPhone recording is on the side. So, if I put it in the middle, then I won’t see you. (Yes, Master.) So, like this is better than nothing already, right? (Yes, Master. Thank You.) At least I will a little bit look in the front, look front-wise. Because always before, you saw my conference, my face always looks anywhere. (Yes, Master.) Because I don’t have any… object, how to say in English? I don’t have any object in front of me, (Yes.) just a blank screen and myself, which I see every day in the mirror when I brush my teeth, so I don’t feel anything interesting that I have to look at my face. When I look like this, you see my eyes in front of you or not? (Yes, Master.) Because now I have an excuse, I have something good looking to look for. Wow! My God, look at all of you, sunshine.

Now, I’m reading to you. Oh, you have a choice, OK? It’s all Aulacese (Vietnamese) here, I have to translate while I’m reading to you. We have Aulacese (Vietnamese) folklore, stories, (Yes.) old stories or Jewish stories. We never told Jewish stories before? (No, Master.) Or Buddhist stories, so which one do you want? Oh, you are spoiled with choice, my God. (Jewish story.) What do you want? Aulacese (Vietnamese)? (Jewish story, Master.) Jewish? (Yes, Jewish, please.) Buddhist? (Jewish.) Oh man, you Jewish guys. You don’t look Jewish, why do you want a Jewish story? (Since it’s Christmas coming.) OK, good, good. I had it prepared here anyway. I thought that’s what you’d want. Look at that, I have miracles, I can read your minds. I know what you wanted, see that? (Yes, Master.) Now, we have three books translated in Aulacese (Vietnamese). We have to thank the author and then thank the translator beforehand. If we can contact them, we will make some little donation. This is translated in Âulacese (Vietnamese). Maybe we can make some contribution to some Jewish synagogue. (Yes.) OK, or some Jewish community.

I will copy the page where it says who wrote this. Actually, it’s not a translation, it’s an author who has collected all these stories and has also some of his comments on it. And so in this page, you will find the printing, the production company and also who is the author of this book and I will ask some of you to help me to ask some responsible person to contact them in order to offer some of our gratitude in financial support. Even though we don’t (use) this for a commercial (purpose) or anything, but out of respect, we offer some financial support. You will find the photo that I made of this, the page where you find the printing company and the author’s name. And try to contact them, please. (Yes, Master.) Thank you.

All right, so I start it without too much ado. It doesn’t look too bad, I mean you don’t look too bad, so what are they talking about. They told me the face in the computer doesn’t look good. I don’t look too bad, I mean, I look like every day, nothing special. Where was the story, it just left now. I lost the story. I can’t believe that. Very interesting, the Jewish story. I don’t have time to read these now. When I was somewhere else, I lived in the storeroom before? I had more time. So every day I read some stories, not every day, but almost. Like, I did my job before, it’s easier for me. What did I do? I just wrote it, the comments or the corrections on the paper with my hand writing and you guys take care of everything. And then you had to print it out for me, next one, and then print it back again. Now I have to do everything. You don’t have to type my handwriting, you don’t have to even send me printed out paper. We save a lot of paper, and I’m very happy. But I have a lot more work. So now I don’t have time to read even one story ever since I left that place. I don’t have time anymore. (Yes, Master.) Yes, it’s not too good, though.

Somebody is taking your photo. (Yes.) There is a cameraman? (Yes.) Wow, then he could not even sit down and see me at all? Maybe… (We can, Master, it’s just because the…) I saw him behind there. What? (The camera is not very wide, so he’s moving the camera so you can see all of us. Next time, we’ll have a wider camera.) OK, good, good. Maybe next time. This is better than nothing, already. Right? (Yes, Master.) You can see and you are happy, no? (Yes, Master.) (Thank You, Master.) It’s the main point? The main point is that you see, no? (Yes, Master.) The one and only. The irreplaceable (Yes.) super woman. (Yes.)

Let’s go to the story. This story is titled: “The City Guardian.” A Jewish story, Jewish old story, I mean folklore story. This story is talking… in the beginning, it talks about Abraham. Abraham, you know, right? (Yes.) The Jewish and the Arabs consider he is their forefather. So, this is talking about Abraham, that God loves him very much. So, God said to him thus, because they put it in quotation marks. They did not say anything yet. I just read along. And then I might explain.


OK, now, this is what God told Abraham. “You love the righteousness and you hate the wickedness. Therefore, God, your God has chosen you to anoint.” Put oil. That’s what they say, “put oil,” in here. (Yes, Master.) Anoint the head. “So, both you and the oil,” meaning the anointment, “are happy. Because you are anointed, so you’re happy. I have promoted you above all of the so-called your equals.” Probably similar citizens or something, same position, but he is above all of them. That’s what God told him. Oh, but this is in the Bible: (Psalm) 45:8. This phrase has been described about Abraham. “The one who loves God under the wings of Shekhinah.”

Any Jewish here? You wanted the Jewish story. Shehkinah. Ah! I know. That is also one of the names that people call God when God has to go down into the world to guide, to lead the Israeli people, in the sign of something like a cloud, a group of clouds. Or maybe the fire in the bush when the Israeli people were lost, walking and searching for their promised land 40 years in the desert, in the wild. Or maybe appears as the light on top of their tents. Or maybe appears in the church of Israel, Jerusalem. That’s what Shekhinah means, God. They call God like that, just like the Muslims call God “Allah,” right, (Yes.) for that time. All right. Good. I have even a footnote.

Wow, wonderful book. It’s just in Aulacese (Vietnamese), I’m stuck sometimes with the Aulacese (Vietnamese) to English. But it’s better than English to Aulacese (Vietnamese). I have forgotten how to express more eloquently in Aulacese (Vietnamese). So you see sometimes I talk in the group of Aulacese (Vietnamese), I’m talking like one of those who just came out of the cave. Which I did actually, most of the time.
