The Effort of Faithfulness

Urantia, January 9, 2013.
The Beloved One.
Subject: “The Effort of Faithfulness.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Although you have no idea of what the subject might be, you fully expect a message to be forthcoming. It proves your expectation of my being faithful to you, and it proves your being faithful to me. Allow me to tell you that everything is according to God’s plan, for you are steadily moving forward in your listening skills. It is in the inner world where the fastest growth can happen if the creature is willing to listen. It is my observation that people are willing to spend large sums of money so they can learn from an outsider how to contact their God within. I tell you right now that all have been born with the ability to quite alone accomplish that task. One does not need to be ‘spoon-fed’ by others who have done the work for themselves. It becomes far more soul-satisfying if humans will individually discover the Gift of their innermost selves, which entails, needless to say, some hard work. Nothing of value is ever gained if one is handed this Gift on a silver platter.

“The greatest satisfaction and soul-peace is gained by those whose lives have been forged between hammer and anvil, experiencing what they boldly chose through their free will and decisions. Even though some things appear to happen because of the mistakes of others, there is always a lesson in it, somewhere, which can lead to greater insight, even though this might not be immediately apparent. It takes a lot of living, and inner recognition that everything is always well. Mistakes are of value for the simple reason that one can learn from them so they don’t need to be repeated. Therefore it is befitting to each human with a normal thinking capacity to consider that they have the power within them to change their life if they are not happy. They don’t need to be told how and why to connect up to the living Spark from God within them. All they need to do is go into the Silence and persevere. It is they who need to make that decision and no one else can speak for them.

“It is their responsibility to make that connection, even though it is helpful to at times get pointed into the right direction by those who have blazed the trail before them. Ultimately each mortal is responsible for making their own connection to God, as no one else can do it for them. This is the only short-cut you can make. Visiting your places of worship is only good for social interaction – to be with kindred spirits, who are also trying to make that all important connection to the All That Is. This planet is on the cusp of a grand spiritual awakening, and the best way to proceed is to turn within to commune with the indwelling Spark from God asking for your daily directions as to how best to do Gods will. After that, simply allow the day to unfold according to his will – the way with the most love.”

Human Groups, Uniformity and Variety

Illawarra District, Australia, January 3, 2013.
The Damascus Scribe.
Subject: “Human Groups, Uniformity and Variety.”

Received by George Barnard.

The Scribe: “Before you get the wrong idea, which, being human, you so easily do, let me make this important statement now: The Creator Father loves you all equally. It is a long-ago established fact that a man is no more important than his wife, the king no better than his serf, the old no more or less valuable to Him, than the young. Further on this theme, the seraphim are no more loved than are the cherubim. All on this earth, in these time-space universes, yes, on timeless Paradise, are equally loved by their Creator.

“Equality in being loved, however, does not imply uniformity. There is an enormous variety of intelligent creatures calling themselves sons or daughters of God. For every conceivable function to be fulfilled within time-space and ‘eternity’ there is a species capable of performing such tasks, and these species number in their thousands. Even they have, as have you, been granted diverse personalities by the Father Creator. Thus, throughout the far-flung universes there is uniformity in individual functions, yet endless variety of personality.

“Viewed from where you are placed, there is something missing in the total equation that allows midwayers and angels to sharply discern what group a certain human being belongs to. At times identified in their common language as Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Crows, Doves or Sparrows, it is hardly astrology they refer to, or animal totems. No, the answer lies in Thought Adjuster education on Divinington, which is given in countless different classes on countless varied subjects each. Remember, my dear friend and student, that all is known.

“The Adjusters, advanced as they may have become, know time and place and the human personality of their future fusion, perhaps thousands of years forward in time. Therefore they can select their curriculum to suit the personality of the mortal, and so, whoever and whatever you will become, your Adjuster will have foreseen, and ‘have made a career out of’ what will suit you most. Your experiences, and the Thought Adjuster’s education must… dovetail, because at fusion time an eternal career has begun.

“At the very moment of fusion, a new person is born, and the former human will have brought to this entirely new creature a perfecting personality, valuable experience, infinite courage, extensive knowledge, great wisdom and empathy, treasured skills and more. At that very same moment of fusion, the Thought Adjuster will have brought to this entirely new creature, its God-like universe identity, in fact guaranteed eternal life, and a powerfully strong classification of the group the new creature will be delighted to belong to.

“At that very moment both the former mortal and his or her long-serving Thought Adjuster will have ceased to exist. The ‘God-like Product of their Cooperation’ will live on forever. Adieu.”

Receivers Note: I heard from the Damascus Scribe on January 3, transcribed the transmission on January 9, and added a Message (below) from a dear friend, received just now (January 10, 2013).

George, I had a strange but wonderful experience shortly before waking up from a dream. I don’t even know anymore what it was about, but all of a sudden a very tall eagle stood to the left of me. We were both standing in a room, and she wrapped her right wing right totally around me, as if to protect me. Well, I felt so secure and loved that I stroked her belly just a little bit as I did not want to cross her boundaries. She had her beak right next to my nose and that was ok with me. No idea how long we stood there but the feelings of powerful love were indescribable. Then I woke up… J.

The Benefits of Meditation

Alabama, US of A, January 27, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “The Benefits of Meditation.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “In years gone by, your scientists discovered there to be lots of benefits from regular meditation. Many of these benefits simply arose from calming the whirlpool of thoughts that constantly bother human minds in this age. However, the greatest benefits are obtained by those who come to stillness with the goal of knowing their celestial Father, and finding the path to becoming increasingly more perfect beings.

“Many have been attracted to meditation by the numerous benefits they can obtain. Some even expect to receive riches and material benefits through the practice of stillness. Those who meditate with these selfish motivations deprive themselves of the higher benefits they could obtain. Practicing stillness is simply adoration. It is a transformational process in which a human being surrenders self into the hands of his or her Creator in order to be changed into what the Creator has envisioned for that person.

“Do not practice stillness with the goal of achieving material success. Better yet, forget all expectations when practicing stillness and let the Father assume control, and decide what is best for you. In other words, surrender to His will. At least for a few minutes each day, let the Father’s will be done in your life and you will surely be amazed by the results.

“Human beings enjoy free will. Nobody can be forced to focus his or her mind onto something in particular. However, when by your own will you decide to focus your mind into the Father, He will answer and will provide exactly what you need, since He knows you better than you know yourself. When you tune into the frequency of the Father you are aligning with the primordial force that sustains the universe and with the origin of all life and all wisdom. This action, so apparently simple, will have unbelievable repercussions that will move you closer to your eternal destiny.”

The Viewpoint of Eternity

Michigan, US of A, January 6, 2013.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Viewpoint of Eternity.”

Received by Chris.

Ophelius: “The message for today is about understanding and maintaining the eternal viewpoint. What do I mean by this? Life on an evolutionary world, such as yours, one in much confusion, having achieved a moderate level of technology, where wars still persist and elite power structures rule over the daily lives of its inhabitants, there is a constant battle of the mind where your thoughts and actions are distracted and directed toward temporal problem solving, media marketing, and profane disinformation. So many on your world have little faith or give little thought to the bigger questions in life, which leads to a plethora of psychological dysfunctions and mounting social unrest. It is vital for you and for your world to understand that you all possess a growing soul, and that you are here to prepare for the next phase of human existence.

“Life on an evolutionary world is the cradle and the jump-start beginning of an eternal career – an ascendant life in the grand universe, where you have the opportunity to become perfect and godlike, where you will change and grow and move from one realm to another, learning, teaching, and accumulating much knowledge and wisdom as you move inward toward the Great Source and Center of all there is. You are the experiential children in time-space of a Creator God who is Himself experiencing life in the creation on finite levels through the lives of all of you, his experiential children.

“Since everything in the creation – every material substance and living being that ever was created – has its origin in this Creator, all are connected to this all-life-giving Source. Humans, being the lowest of will creatures that can know God, have the greatest opportunity to experience change from the beginnings of an animal existence on the worlds of time, to the sublime heights of perfection in the eternal spheres of Havona and Paradise. This journey to perfection should be the ultimate goal in the minds of all men and women on your world. Sadly this viewpoint is given little thought.

“Holding this one thought in your mind – that we are all connected to the Source of creation, and that we all live and move and have our being in this Source, and that we all have the opportunity to live eternally and achieve godlike perfection – this one thought, should all on your world have it, would solve much of your problems and bring supreme joy, light, and life to this now darkened sphere.

“Think about it, my friends – how can you go to war with your brothers and sisters knowing we are all indwelt by the same Spirit of the living God? How can you kill, deceive, and steal from one another when in truth, we are all one? Only the self-absorbed consciousness of illusionary separatist thinking, where scarcity is falsely projected in a universe of true abundance, can such misery and suffering exist. Free yourself from this suffering and maintain the viewpoint of eternity – embrace the unity of being.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

A Lesson on Violence

Chicago US of A, September 16, 2012.
Teacher Prolotheos.
Subject: “A Lesson on Violence.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheos: “What defines violence? Violence is to employ force to cause an unjustifiable constraint of a person’s free will or cause injury to any aspect of human personality – physical, intellectual or emotional. Evil is the source of violence; it works to produce the evil intent of the evildoer. The use of force, not its abuse, is not violence when it serves goodness, justice and or protects social order. The presumed evildoer must be restrained so no more violence is produced and his or her actions are adjudicated. God is just, fully capable of lovingly and mercifully adjusting everything and everyone to His sovereign will; He has no need to resort to violence to accomplish His purposes. Even a rebel will willingly acknowledge His perfect justice.

“The presence of conflict is not always a sign of violence. Violence presupposes an evil intent as well as a disregard and disrespect for life and its inherent dignity. In the evolutionary worlds, progress comes by struggle and striving towards perfection, which presumes a necessary wrestling with the status quo. In nature, the surviving instinct in the species will wrestle adverse situations to preserve superior stocks. Human beings, as a result of evolution and grace – the latter being the gift of personality from the Father – feature both the blind animal instinct and the awareness of a responsible will. There is a natural conflict between these two natures; on Urantia, humans are still learning how live with their animal-survival instinct without resorting to violence.

“Violence through aggression, subjection, slavery, terrorism and wars has been the common way for conflict resolution on Urantia since long ago; and, so far, with no visible signs of your finding better ways to do so. Dissemination of violence on Urantia, especially through wars, is a sign that its inhabitants are still socially and culturally primitive, despite the great technological development of the last century. It will take better education, elevated spirituality, together with the Brotherhood of Man conscious of the Fatherhood of God and the ministry of upcoming Paradise Sons, for Urantia to become an enlightened planet, as it should be. A non-violent humanity seems like utopia, but it is just what the worlds long settled in Light and Life enjoy, and it is the hope for still retarded planets such as yours.

“Violence for its own sake is wholly unproductive of anything good. Furthermore, it is altogether contradictory when violence is associated with religion and practiced ‘in name of God’, as is often the case with evolutionary religions. God or His faithful administrators on High never resort to or condone violence. Violence may be seen to be a by-product of evolution in the worlds of time and space, and it may contribute to the survival of the fittest, but it is always proof of human beings’ incapacity or unwillingness to solve conflicts peacefully by means of tolerance, forgiveness and dialogue.”

“So, my pupil, listen to the words of your Master when on Urantia: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.’ Blessed are you all when you foil violence and toil for peace. This is Prolotheos, your teacher and tutor. Peace to all.”
