Teacher: The Scribe (Sananda).
Subject: “About Humanness.”
Message received by George Barnard.
The Scribe: “I wish to speak to you about humanness, especially in relation to the status of enlightenment and its pitfalls. If and when you (George) feel either confident or so inclined to put it to the Progress list, you may do so. However, there is no insistence on My part or that of others (Celestials) to see that it is published in any way and either in full or in part.
“The sudden ‘appearance’ or ‘event’ of Enlightenment, being the gift of one or more aspects of the Morontia Mind, can have widely varied effects on the 7-fold human mind. Why is this so? It is because you are so different, racially and in a hundred other ways, not to mention your enormously varied belief systems.
“In women the phenomenon can be a vase of flowers or a garden shrub, seemingly lighting up. And afterwards there is a ‘matter-of-cause-knowing’ about God and the universe as if this knowing was always already there, when it certainly was not. Rarely, I say rarely, is Enlightenment a cause for the female to go completely ‘round the twist’ as you describe it, but yes, it does so happen. Mostly the female takes Enlightenment well and simply carries on as before, while some become great contributors.
“In males Enlightenment can go either way: They can become great contributors with their new and advanced minds, or totally lose the storyline. Yes, Enlightenment can have great impact on the male mind and until such time as you come to fully understand this totally natural and progressive phenomenon better than you do now, there will arise still more ‘gurus’ and false leaders who will take you by the hand and lead you nowhere fast.
“Awareness of this now more common but exceptional experience is what is needed and the initiated need your standing by them to channel their new gifts into worthwhile projects, not pick up the pieces when it has become too late.”
George: “We are Urantians, we’re unique. I say we’re just awkward and then some.”
The Scribe: “Perhaps. In time a clearer understanding of Enlightenment will prepare you for the hidden dangers so associated with that sudden event and allow you to understand that the most divisive problems to be overcome deal with an awakened fanaticism. Even the well-adjusted can later in life become as zealous as to lead themselves and their followers into despair.
“Also, as you well know, contact with Celestial Teachers can occasionally be tenuous and human ‘group-thought’ can bring visions of exploding nuclear bombs or interplanetary invasions. So, stay happy, healthy and humble in your humanness . . . and always count on Me for the answers you need.
