The Circuit of Worship

Michigan, US of A, November 25, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Circuit of Worship.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today we would like to speak to you about a subject that goes mostly unexplored by most people, and one that is so vitally important because it is the lifeblood of the spiritual body – the mind circuit of Worship. For many, the word “worship” connotes a primitive form of ritualism – of groups of people posed prostrate with hands in the air and whaling away at some iconic lifeless idol of deity. That was a method used by primitive man to pay homage to the gods. Today in modern religion, worship may consist of singing and praising in groups – giving thanks for the honor of being a child of the Creator and in some churches, celebrating the name of the Creator Son. Does the Creator Father or the Creator Son demand worship from the children of time? What exactly is it, and why is worship important to you and your spiritual health?

“Simply put, my friends, worship is divine communication – a connection with God at the highest level for a human, for true worship bypasses the rational mind and connects the mind circuits directly with deity through the Indwelling Spirit – the Thought Adjuster. In these moments of pure connection, brief as they may be, the soul opens for life sustaining growth and faith is strengthened providing solace to the mind and a greater more personal relationship with the Creator Father – as it is sung in some worship songs, “To know Him, is to love Him.”

“Knowing the Creator (through the circuit of worship) is one of two things that delineates man from the animal – the other being the circuit of wisdom. Worship is different from prayer in that it contains no petition, only the desire of the creature to commune freely with the Creator, and in unstructured and spontaneous form, can be the most joyful experience a human can feel while in the flesh – it is like the wind in the sails of the spiritual vessel – the soul.

“The Creator Father desires worship from His children because He wants to draw personally close to them in mind and spirit and to feed them with his perfect and divine love – unconditional love which is necessary for healthy spiritual growth. It is this intimate connection that is of value to both the Creator and the creature that establishes the foundation for continued life in the grand universe and the adventure of seeking and finding God. Worship strengthens spiritual gravity – that drawing power from the Creator that calls all sentient beings to perfection – to discover the God of all creation.

“How does one worship the Creator? There is no set of predefined methods for this – it is personal and free from rules. You do as you feel, but it is most effective when alone and without distraction. You simply let go of all your worldly thoughts and cares and place yourself in the presence of God. Expressing thanks, gratitude, love, and acknowledging your sonship as a child of God, is one good way to bring you into the state of worship, or it may be simply being quiet with God and feeling that joy that no words can express. Imagine the hand of God reaching down to you, and you, the child, reaching up to God. This divine “handshake” is the state of worship. There is peace, joy, sustenance, and power in the grasp of the Almighty.

“If you have not experienced this needful spiritual connection, I recommend you give it daily consideration.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

In Proportion

Urantia, October 4, 2012.
Mentori Spokesperson.
Subject: “In Proportion.”

Received by Lytske.

Mentor: “Let me state that I am pleased that you listened to my prompt to come to center. You still need to calm your mind so you can come to the center of your being and gain some helpful insights and receive instructions as to what living is all about. A question you hold in your mind is: ‘To whom am I listening?’ This is not important. The important thing is that you are willing to lend me, or any celestial, your inner ear, for this path is open to anyone willing to learn from their elder siblings, visible (human) or invisible.

“Yes, I know that your Beloved resides within you, but may I also divulge that She is the one who gives me permission speak. I speak about your Thought Adjuster-Controller as being a She, because Thought Adjusters through a certain spiritual development of their charges become known by the personalities and the gender of the mortals they inhabit. This always still depends on the readiness and the development of the seed-soul, which is still in its embryonic form but through the diligence of the vessel they inhabit, the Thought Adjusters will take on the personality of that creature at a certain point of that creature's spiritual development, which is the moment when that young person makes his or her first conscious moral choice, and chooses to behave in a moral way.

“Of course, everything is always ‘in proportion’ and with the decisions following that first and most eventful moral choice, the little one will be prompted from within. At first, this prompting from within may go unnoticed, but parents familiar with the fact that such a moment can take place in the life of their little one, and if they are also actively seeking to do God’s will, will recognize that a most important event has occurred as the youngster begins to behave better.

“This is a most significant event after which, or even before which, any observant and interested parent can encourage their children to develop the habit of daily prayer to guide the little one in its rightful path towards a balanced maturity. The child will then grow in the secure knowledge that he or she is in the ever-loving overcare of a Spark from the eternal Creator. This Spark from God, known as a Thought Adjuster, always has a direct link to the eternal Creator, so the person is never bereft of celestial guidance, as this is the method the Creator chose to be intimately involved with all His mortal offspring.

“The listening quality of the mortal is always in proportion to the time spent in the stillness of the heart. Think about this: if God seems far away, who moved? It is simply not possible for God to be far away because of that intimate involvement of every minute of every day. Perhaps it would be useful to remember how much time you spend thinking about that inner Companion of yours. That on-board Partner will always point you in the right direction, as this development is always in proportion to the time spent listening to Her.

“Thank you for listening to my plea, and give this information some thought.”

Teachers Await

Michigan, US of A, February 7, 2009.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Teachers Await.”

Received by Chris.

Ophelius: “Yes, I am here, the Circle is here, and we are ready to begin. Good morning dear one, it is I, Ophelius, and this morning I would like to speak to those who would later read these messages, and especially to those who receive the prompts. Each and every one of you has the opportunity and the ability to ask for, and receive a Teacher. There are many Teachers available now to the people of Urantia in this Correcting Time, and we are all awaiting our call to duty. You, dear one, are no more special than any of your brothers and sisters, yet you have taken that leap of faith, have asked, and have received. All are capable, to some extent, according to their gifts, to receive our messages, if they would earnestly seek that spiritual connection, and fear not that they would fail. Even your first attempts at receiving were crude and unorganized, but still our signature was there even in its most rudimentary form – yet, you were not discouraged, and you persevered.

“We cannot ‘pull out of you’ more than what you are capable of understanding, and we can only speak at the vocabulary level that you have attained thus far in your short lives. The greater the vocabulary, the more eloquently we may speak. Those that are less educated may feel inadequate or intimidated by the works of others, but this should not discourage them, for even truth in its simplest form is more potent than any Shakespearean monologue.

“It is helpful for those who would receive, that a pattern of time be arranged so that all the needed resources can be consistently made available to you. We suggest early morning before the mind is fully active, or any time when the mind can be stilled where there is no interruption.

“Now, this I will make clear to those who ask for a teacher: That your intention is pure and your motive is clear, that you would receive truth and knowledge for the enlightenment of your soul and for the benefit of your brothers and sisters. Like attracts like, and when you ask for a teacher, a dispatch is sent out, and a suitable match is found. If your motives are only that of curiosity and sensationalism, that request will be denied. There is no shortage of teachers here, I can assure you, dear one, for we delight in being given the opportunity to reach out to you on the earth plane, and lift you up as far as your faith will allow. For we are bound by the law of free will, and can do nothing until it is asked for. Free will trumps all spirit prerogatives dear one, you must ask to receive, you must seek to find, and you must knock and the door will be opened unto you.

“Good day,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Visions, Creation and Evolution

Illawarra District, Australia, November 19, 2012.
Secondary Midwayer Bzutu (ABC-22).
Thought Adjuster.

Subject: “Visions, Creation and Evolution.”

Received by George Barnard.

Bzutu: “To be sure, you called on me just now. I called on you earlier and found you unprepared. Let us talk now about visions specifically, rather than prophesy. A vision is something explicit, an event that is visually perceived, like a picture of past or future, whilst prophetic matters may have other means of coming to your attention, and, following such, likely need to be communicated to others to be classed as prophesy. I turn you over now to Another.”

Thought Adjuster: “It could be said, and it is often so remarked, that humans are the least of the Father Creator’s children. I disagree. All Thought Adjusters disagree about humans perhaps being less valuable than are angels, or any other of His plentiful species of offspring. Whereas countless others may well have the service of an accompanying Thought Adjuster, you, the evolutionary children of the planets are indwelt by those very Fragments of the Creator’s Self.

“I, am a very ‘projection’ of the Maker of all that exists, and I function as an integral part of you. Consider now, whilst you are limited by your senses, I as a part of God, and in reality truly God, have no limitations whatever. I can observe yesterday as I can observe tomorrow. Your birth as well as your transition to a new life, and the implantation of life on this planet and the distant arrival of Light and Life on this very sphere, I see as simultaneous events.

“Whilst I make My presence felt in time-space by indwelling you, My home is indeed eternity, which you might see as the ancestor of time and space, and even as the power behind the birth of time and space. Liken the ability of the Thought Adjuster to transmit events of past and future, yes, of events that are happening elsewhere in real time, to your mind, indeed to the mindedness of your soul as a safeguard, perhaps, to the unexpected dangers of evolutionary life.

“Why should this be so? Visions may come as a warning, even as do unexplained knowings, to those who occupy an important space in the mosaic of their time, their family, their nation. In preference they come to those who have taken up their positions in the fabric of society, knowing full well that all in our universes are one, and that we all do not just belong to a family of creatures, but that we represent interdependent cells of an evolving organism, perfection as its goal.

“Visions are proof, one more aspect of proof, that there can be no satisfactory evolutionary success with the exclusion of creative input, indeed, corrective efforts, at times along the way. Evolutionary life is necessarily an unsolicited gift of mortal life by creative powers, to be accepted or rejected by you, capable of promoting you to become wise and experienced, decisive and empathic, all-loving paradise representatives and teachers in the evolving worlds of deep space.”

A Priceless Commodity, GE Foods and The Soul

Urantia, November 19, 2012.
The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Priceless Commodity, GE Foods and The Soul.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “The words, ‘a priceless commodity’ have been going around in your mind, and you have been wondering what it could mean. It refers to something no money on all the earth can buy. You cannot buy good health as this comes about from within by thoughtful and present-centered living with a clear mind unencumbered by chemical interference. The Creator has decreed that this should be so, and He has caused all the herbs, seeds and sundry vegetables to evolve and grow on this precious planet. Alas, humankind has seen fit to alter the Creator’s work by thinking that they can improve on the eternal plans which exist in the mind of God. This is a blatant example of how far mankind has strayed from doing the Creator’s will, so they muddle about in the misery of their own making. How far has humankind strayed from the ascension path via the method of evolution in time and space towards wholeness and eventual perfection, if they so choose, by abiding by God’s plans of practicing good-will towards one another?

“It is simply astounding to celestial beings how one blunder after another is being thought out in the minds of man who use their God-given priceless brains to bring their negative thoughts to fruition much to the calamity they heap upon the innocent heads of humanity due to the choices and decisions they make with far reaching negative effects. Truly, the direction this planet is taking will bring another priceless commodity, their eternal soul to ruin, when greed for material wealth has taken a hold.

“So you see, child, the same type of unthinking and unfeeling humans persist – those who once nailed the Creator and Ruler of this universe to a piece of wood some two thousand years ago – because they refused to understand the simple message about the unconditional love of God for each individual. And because the common people began to listen to the Son of God, the so-called spiritual rulers of the people decided to do away with Him as the common folk started to follow Jesus. They did not realize that doing the will of God and to love God above all things would give emotional and mental balance, which would stabilize their neuronal systems so wonderful health could and would ensue. They persisted in their small-minded and negative thinking.

“It is disheartening to see that this unprogressive mind-set still prevails, and that the urge for material things did not wane and still has priority with many people. Instead they could be progressing and seeking that priceless commodity for their selves simply by following God’s will to grow their eternal souls. Think about how this world had a chance to take that wonderful message to heart about the love of God living with each one of you so a true flourishing of the Fatherhood of God and the brother and sisterhood of humanity would have come about.

“However, have no fear, for ultimately the plans of God for this world, which gave human birth to one of his precious Sons, will one day be fulfilled to perfection, as is its rightful destiny. In order to help bring this about, all individuals becoming aware of the love of the Creator in them, can start claiming that priceless commodity for their selves – that of an undying and immortal soul – so they can in earnest add to the growth of their soul in loving service towards one another.”
