Spending Time on the Self

Michigan, US of A, February 26, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Spending Time on the Self.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about making time for self-improvement -- self-mastery, reflection, and introspection -- for these things must be considered if you are to progress and ascend your psychic circles of human personality potential. Why is this important? It has everything to do with finding true joy and accomplishment, and developing the life skills to succeed in this world while you prepare for the next. Change in the outer world starts with change from within, and if we are to bring this world into the age of Light and Life, we must first bring light to the inner life of the individual.

“By improving the mind through self-mastery, you cleanse it from all fallacies and prejudices and leave the mind open to learning new truths while broadening your perspective on the realities of the ascendant life. You become more tolerable of the ignorance and unawareness of those around you who have not done this inner work, while your patience and fortitude is tested and strengthened as you become more and more aware of your place in the universe.

“It is through the constant monitoring of your thoughts and feelings--controlling your emotions and how you react to people and situations that will bring an inner peace and strength of character that will radiate from your core being and prove to be an example to all those in your life circles. You will earn the respect of your peers as well as those in authority over you when you demonstrate the power of self-control. Once this battle over the selfish ego is won, it clears the way for higher truth and higher learning. The soil of the mind has been prepared and ready for the spiritual transactions of super-conscious input that will trickle down into the conscious mind for use in your inner and outer work in the world.

“Reflection is necessary to review the past actions and reactions of self so that corrections can be made when similar circumstance arise in the future. There should be no thought of regret or guilt when reviewing the past, for it is meant to serve as a focal point for learning and overcoming mistakes. This does not mean however, that you should avoid the responsibilities of those mistakes, but that you deal with them honorably and move on having become wiser from the lesson that experience has brought about.

“Introspection is the examination of your thoughts and motives and this is key to understanding yourself. What is it that you are really trying to accomplish? What are your true intentions and expected outcomes when dealing with your fellows? This, my friends, is the naked truth and the heart of the matter for all things. When all things are sifted and settled, this is the true meaning and value for all that you do and say, and this is what the Creator sees when He looks into the heart of any individual. Above all things, learn to ‘know thyself.’

“Leave time to work on these things, my friends, for these disciplines will propel you inward and onward toward true perfection and God-likeness. The joy of being in control and command of yourself and your own destiny is priceless, for only you can bring the change needed to create the reality of your true intentions.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

A Most Wondrous And Fascinating Journey

The Thought Adjuster transmission set out below is randomly taken from a daily devotional named “The Guiding Light Within.”

A Most Wondrous And Fascinating Journey.

The deepest longings of your heart are known to Me; the self-appointed Fragment from the Creator. That ‘niggling something,’ as you call it, is your desire to be totally consumed by My love.

Unconditional love is so sadly lacking on your planet, and you, too, were raised with only conditional love. This merely stems from the fact that your parents were raised in the same way, and they could not know the difference in those days.

The great and glorious news is that all the shortcomings -- all the leftovers from the Lucifer Rebellion -- such as fear, hate, greed, jealousy, and more, are now slowly diminishing, as the inauguration of the Time of Correction has started. A welcome new age has begun to show its fruits in the hearts and souls and minds of mortals everywhere.

The grace of the Creator, through your universe Master Son, Michael, better known on your planet as Jesus the Christ, has instituted this great and glorious plan.

Believe it, My child, all shall eventually grow into a desire to find their own Fragment of God, so patiently waiting inside of them, as their urges are growing into strong desires, yet always depending on their free will.

This needs to be stressed.

Surely, each thinking and feeling mortal’s yearning will be answered when they turn within the Silence of their heart, for all they have to do is ask wholeheartedly and sincerely, and they, too, shall be filled with God’s grace, to hunger no more.

Truly, life in the mortal estate can become a most wondrous and fascinating journey, simply by one’s uplifting of the thought processes.

Enjoy this unending journey, dear one, for there is no hurry.

All eternity is waiting.

The Known Unknowns

Illawarra District, Australia, February 5, 2012.
Life Carrier, Orion.
Subject: “The Known Unknowns.”

Received by George Barnard.

Orion: “To many on your world it is a perplexing thing that a brother can marry his sister, and that such can go on for generation after generation without ill effect to the offspring. Here, of course, I am referring to the Adamites, and to a somewhat lesser degree to the progeny of Andon and Fonta.

“In the case of the Adamites, I note, these were truly supernatural beings, and so designed to ‘withstand’ the intermarriage of close relatives without ill effects. They could have successfully bred up to 1 million or more, and still not show (anything like) the degenerative affects your present-day species would encounter in similar circumstances.

“We consider the Andon and Fonta pair, and here we have a different set of circumstances. Firstly, these two were twins, and they were the first step into humanness, having evolved from an animal species that could successfully breed in tight clans for thousands of years. Their somewhat simple and undifferrated genetic structure allowed for this, and Andon and Fonta, by and large, inherited this structure.

“Consider for instance a pigeon pair; two eggs are laid, and soon you have a healthy new breeding pair. So you see there is great strength in the simpler creations. For humans as they evolve and diversify, becoming more complex, really, it is important that interbreeding is avoided, even outlawed. Indeed, the Nodites of old, supernatural as they were, also interbred successfully to a very large degree.

“We are the Life Carriers that were present on your world for eons of time, bending, prodding, and encouraging life on the planet to evolve into a creature that could house the presence of God, looking for, if I may re-coin this phrase, ‘known unknowns’ that would surprise us, and further assist us to produce more perfect human species on other worlds.

“This we do to so honor our Creator, to gain more advanced mind endowments from our Mother Spirit, and to in the fullness of time fuse with a Fragment of the Creator himself. I am Orion, delighted to here visit a long-time friend.”

George: “Thank you Brother. Known unknowns, indeed.”

The Exclusivity of Belief

Michigan, US of A, February 5, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Exclusivity of Belief.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today we will talk about faith, beliefs, and religion, and how these things create a construct for the kind of experiences one will have that may lead to spiritual growth or spiritual stagnation. For any kind of spiritual growth, there must be faith -- to believe in God and things unseen -- hope for a better tomorrow and a desire for life eternal. This is the true foundation of spiritual growth. Without it, a belief system is merely a philosophy.

“Atheism is a belief system without faith and without God, and no real spiritual benefit can be had by this belief system nor can it produce a map for the afterlife, which is vital to eternal survival. There are far too many on your world who believe in ‘nothing’ and are headed down a path to oblivion and spiritual death. The expectation of these individuals is that once the physical body expires, life, the personality, and the identity of the individual is terminated and no longer holds a presence or consciousness in time or space. This is most unfortunate because they have ‘willed’ that there be no life hereafter, and so that individual having no map to the afterlife, may find themselves lost and in darkness -- a problem that is systemic on Urantia.

“Religion, on the other hand, is a practice of rituals or doctrinal teachings by a group that sets boundaries and limits to the construct of faith according to the religious credos of the group. It requires of its devotees to accept without question, the tenants of its creeds and to practice and adhere to the religious doctrines taught by the group. This type of belief system may be beneficial to spiritual growth and may provide a foundation for higher concepts of God as the individual progresses and produces good fruit in their life experiences, relationships with others, devotion to God and to service -- evidence of spiritual growth. However, because religion is ‘exclusive’ and sets boundaries by its crystallized dogmas, the devotee may be limited in their concept of God and may not fully realize their true spiritual potential in their terrestrial life.

“One of the dangers of religious exclusivity is that it may seek to impose its views on others’ beliefs and attempt to control governmental and societal institutions to promote its exclusive agenda over other faiths. This is the beginning of tyranny and a spiraling into darkness as was witnessed on Urantia in the medieval period and still persists in many countries and cultures today. With each new generation, the lessons of the past begin to fade from the collective consciousness and the danger of repeating those mistakes persist. It is one of the many goals of The Correcting Time to prevent this backward slide into darkness and to move humanity forward by revealing a higher concept of deity that is all inclusive and that unites, rather than divides, all peoples.

“In order for your world to become sustainable and keep a forward momentum towards Light and Life, world religions must become more tolerant and open the closed loop of exclusivity. Interfaith groups are leading the way to this all inclusive belief in ‘one God, many paths.’ Many souls who adhere to the exclusivity of religion will be surprised in the afterlife that ‘Hell’ is not as populated as they were taught to believe and that they themselves had not achieved perfection in one life by merely crossing over. When all religions teach that the Spirit of the Creator lives in every man, woman, and child, then will the exclusivity doctrines change into the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. This my friends, is the age of Light and Life.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Actions and their Repercussions

Chicago, US of A, February 5, 2012.
Teacher Prolotheos.
Subject: “Actions and their Repercussions.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheos: “Everything we do causes repercussions, either intended by us, or not. That is a universal law. No action taken by any creature in the universe is neutral, or circumscribed to its actor. That is the very essence of our expression in time and space. The same way you cannot take back words once they are uttered, actions, too: once put in motion, will follow their path and will cause other motions, like the fall of a dominoes chain. Repercussions are secondary actions that also affect people, things and situations, beyond the original or primary action’s goal or intention.

“When the Gods and the superior beings in the universe act, they are able to anticipate what would be the repercussions of their actions in the long term. The Gods, being infinitely perfect, act in perfection of purpose and all their direct actions are incapable of going awry by themselves. However, even Gods’ actions, when they enter the interactions of time and space with finite beings, whose action’s repercussions may reflect their limitations or imperfections, those primary and perfect actions may swing many times around the universes before accomplishing the perfect purpose originally intended for them.

“Human beings, however, rarely think about the consequences of their actions before acting. A good decision-making process finds the best way of acting, but should also include the thinking-ahead and projecting which undesirable repercussions these decisions might in the long run cause for others. While some repercussions can be anticipated, others, depending on third part reactions, are virtually impossible of being predicted. However, as a rule, human decisions should wisely leave room for foreseeable possibilities, and be acted out with discretion. Acting only after thinking of possible repercussions is to act responsibly.

“There are several reasons why human beings are sometimes unable to think about the repercussions of their decisions, which range from poor thinking to total inconsideration for others’ well-being. Most of human decisions suffer from immediatism – acting to achieve short-term results. Greed, besides being insatiable, is also impatient. Another human decision’s illness is emotionalism – making decisions on the heat of overwhelming emotions. Crimes of passion are amongst the ones to later cause most regret. However, the ‘old selfishness’ is mostly what makes human beings not think about their actions’ repercussion on others, because those with this personality ailment only know how to concern themselves with themselves.

“You cannot predict every repercussion resulting from your decisions. However, right there within you dwells a Spirit Fragment of God that can help you make decisions with others taken into consideration. Besides, have in mind that the Paradise Father is the Creator, Sustainer and Controller of all. Once you have made your best decision, do not entertain endless mental debate, which also brings dangerous inertia; act confidently knowing that you did your best, and know that your still limited, and less-than-perfect actions will eventually find their path into God’s all encompassing perfect will.

“I am Prolotheos, your spiritual tutor, glad to share these thoughts with you. My love is with you”.
