The Greatest Visible Sign Ever Given

The Greatest Visible Sign Ever Given.
A Thought Adjuster Speaks – 226 – March 6, 2004.

Dear one, let us mull over the word ‘understanding’. It is to you truly amazing when you discover hidden beauty in something you re-read—something new that you had not noticed before. This is so in any worthwhile inspirational reading, as you will find that your understanding has been enlarged. It is then when the hidden meanings become clearer and, usually, the simpler the message, the greater the meaning.

This was the simple method by which your Master Jesus taught, and for the most part, the deeper meanings of His words still lie hidden. He spoke in parables, and it was up to the listeners of His days to discover the true meaning of His words.

It is the hope that these nuggets of wisdom will be discovered with a greater understanding than has heretofore been permitted by the priesthood. It is hoped that the true reason for His incarnation on this planet will finally be known, rather than the explanation given for the sordid, totally unnecessary, and brutal affair of His crucifixion by unthinking and unfeeling mortals.

An innocent Son of God did not need to ransom mortal children from their perceived misdeeds. Many honest souls have suffered needlessly through this puerile belief that He was an offering to an angry, offended God.

This is childlike thinking, and it belongs to the dark ages. The time has come for the real truth to be known, so a greater understanding may dawn upon the minds of God’s mortal children on this earth, and that those mortal minds be set free from the terrible bondage of eternal damnation.

As the Life and Teachings of Jesus begin to be re-discovered, it is the hope that all peoples will discover the real truth—that He came to proclaim the unconditional Love of His and your Father in Heaven, and how to search and do the Will of this self-same Father.

Jesus was the prime example of One who was always seeking His Father’s Will and to be obedient to this Will. The Father does not arbitrarily interfere with the freewill of mankind, therefore, His life ended according to the will of puny men, although He could have ended the slaughter in His own Power.

He resurrected Himself on the third day, and this is the greatest visible sign that was ever given of life continuing after mortal death.

This is the understanding mankind stands to gain from His Life and Teachings.

A Lesson on Security

Urantia, August 15, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Security.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “A sense of insecurity pervades the planet, which makes it important and timely to speak about the security that can only be found within the steady center of your spirit. It is necessary for humanity to realize that despite all this restlessness and the upheaval around you, there is Spirit within you, Who can steady you. Most times it is a life-long journey. Some mortals find this inner peace and the security it brings fairly early in life, but it usually does not come until after much searching and living a life filled with trial and error. There are some, who pass from this life, never having found what they were looking for. And then there are those who do not at all believe in an eternal life. To all I advise to never lose hope, for the Father is not done with you yet.

“However, even when you remain in doubt about your eternal existence and the continuity of life, consider the trees, how they always make ready for their long winter sleep by shedding their leaves and when spring time comes the life-sap once again starts stirring within. Tiny buds begin to swell, and in time blossoms and leaves begin to form culminating in the fruit they were programmed to bear, each to their own type. Do they worry about these things? They just are and do what is innate in them. So it is with mortals, also having within them a God-given blueprint. Still, they are often so busy with things that have no importance for eternal life. Humans have been given the faculty to think for themselves, but many behave as if they are robots and continue to be ‘spoon-fed’, rather than taking the more difficult job and ‘chew’ for themselves. They offer the excuse that things have always been done that way, so why should they have to change and thereby upset the apple cart.

“Thinking along these lines will not give you your personal peace of mind and inner security, because sooner or later, you will be confronted with the question, ‘How steady and strong is your faith?’ If you have not thoughtfully done anything about it, ought it be time to start now? There is always the eternal ‘now’ moment, in which everything can change in a split second. Allow yourself one of these eternal ‘now’ moments, to realize what it is your soul hungers for and seeks to find. You will be doing yourself the greatest of favors to reflect on this very important matter. And let Me assure you, that sooner or later, these questions will come up in every normal minded and thinking person. This is the deepest question you can ask of yourself.

“‘Who am I, what am I supposed to be doing here and where am I going?’ Reflect upon these questions and see, if there is a certain restlessness in you that clamors to be satisfied. You may be sure that your soul demands its peace and security, which it can only develop if you will it so. There is an eternity of co-operation waiting for you, here and in the celestial world, but you are the one who needs to be willing to look for this. It is never too late to start searching the motivations of your heart. Is it just? Is it about love? Is it open to the idea of tolerance towards all others you come in contact with? Remember, your tiny blue orb in space depends very much on mutual co-operation. See to it that not one lords it over another, for they shall not be held innocent and guiltless, who perpetrate atrocities in one form or other upon the innocents of this planet. Search your own heart and feel the eternal security stirring within you. Be and live in My security and love.”

A Lesson on Rest and the Mind

Urantia, August 6, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Rest and the Mind.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Rest represents training of the mind to the highest degree. Anyone, who has learned to control his or her mind, can truly become a master in this material life, because to control one’s mind is the most difficult thing to do when it is filled with worry and anxiety. Anyone can be at rest in a blissful attitude and state of mind when everything in life ‘rolls on’ without upsets. However, when the mind goes through a period of negative or disturbing thoughts, which make relaxing difficult, it becomes expedient to call on celestial help, so you don’t have to resort to medication or other supposed relaxing substances. The most sincere and honest way is to succeed in your mortal estate without having to resort to artificial means to achieve the desired result.

“There is so much ‘dishonesty’ in the inducement of relaxation that people will use anything that relaxes them, not realizing that they give their power away to some foreign substance. It is far more ‘honest’ to search the inner self and see what can be done to improve one’s negative habits and in this manner become more aware of the areas one needs to work on in order to gain mastery over the self. Self-discipline is often looked upon as hard work, and people think that they can become perfect without it. There are those, who are completely happy with their negative habits, mainly because they do not know that they are actually indulging in them, and that things can be done very much differently.

“Sooner or later, everyone will get a 'wake-up call' in one form or another. However, many will not heed this call because of indolence and stubbornness. Humans often do not want to change their erring ways, and so they miss out on becoming earnest co-creators with the eternal Creator God. In this way they also miss out on the great gift of being truly alive and setting out to correct themselves where needed. There is not a person living today, who does not have some self-corrections to make. It is very easy to notice someone’s perceived mistakes, and forgetting to work on the self, by overlooking the flaws of your ‘inner environment’. In order to gain the inner peace and soul-rest, which is the ultimate goal in life, it is necessary, and quite a full-time job to keep your impulses under control.

“Therefore, I desire to bring this concept of inner rest to your attention. It will be so much easier to attain a restful sleep without your having to worry about matters which may never materialize. Place your hope and trust in God, for this will strengthen your faith enormously. It is as simple as that, even though this is yet so difficult to attain, because this method of calming the mind with earnest perseverance has rarely been practiced. I counsel you to place all your worries and disturbing thoughts into the hands of God, whenever they arise, especially during the hours of sleep as you start worrying, so you are robbed of a restful sleep. It is so simple, to immediately go into a silent prayer, or seek the Stillness within, so you can overcome this tendency of solving the seemingly unsolvable, which is better done in the waking hours when you can do something about it. Think about this and try My suggestion. I guarantee you that this works.”

Love is the Best Way, Always!

Chicago, US of A, July 12, 2012.
Midwayer Messenger Sharmon (MNO-6).
Subject: “Love is the Best Way, Always!”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Sharmon: “Hello my friends, this is Sharmon. I am one of many Midwayers on this world, and incidentally the best dressed lady in the Midway Realm. We are collectively in service to Christ Michael, our Creator Son and the Sovereign of Nebadon. I am one of His children, and a lightning-fast messenger. My full-time task is to deliver urgent messages from and to diverse personalities on Urantia. As you would say, I ‘keep things rolling.’

“I take great pleasure in what I do because I am serving others, cooperating in their lives, and as a result I also progress in my own experiential growth. A life spent in service is a pleasurable life. I very much enjoy being among you humans, for I find you – our evolutionary cousins – very interesting creatures of God. You are so imaginative, so creative, but, also, more often than not, so belligerent, destructive, and irresponsible.

“You, Valdir, asked me to say something special and helpful to all who will read my message. So here it is, my friends. The most helpful thing that you can do for yourself, and for others, is very simple and very well known to most, yet unfortunately often neglected by many. It is love, my friends. Love is what put this entire universe into motion and evolved it, and love is what will continue to move and progress it into a bright future which we all aim and work for – a wonderful future with much love in it. Love is never too much, as it fits all things, all hearts, and all lives. It is what we need most on this distressed Urantia of ours. If each one of us could make sure to show a little affection every day – both through action and attitude – it will make a big difference to the entire world.

“Evil cannot build anything. It can only destroy, but love builds lives, restores what was destroyed and lifts up the broken hearts of those who have fallen down. In the end only love is what really matters. So, my dear ones, let us show non-stop tenderness to all who cross our paths. The Father showed us the way of devotion first of all. We are all His valued children – low and high -- one big and much-treasured family. Therefore, I could not say good-bye without saying this, I love you all . . . all of Urantia humankind. Please take care of yourselves, because I want you to be around forever! That is all, my friends. Remember, love is the best and only way, always!”

Experience a Lollapalooza

Michigan, US of A, August 5, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Experience a Lollapalooza.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about experiencing a ‘Lollapalooza,’ defined as an extraordinary or unusual thing, person, or event; an exceptional example or instance. What do I mean by this? I’m asking you to break free from the mundane, for your purpose in life is essentially to have experiences and to have them in a very intense way, as you should, living on the worlds of time and space.

“Your life in the flesh viewed from an eternal standpoint can be compared to the intense learning period that an infant child experiences in the first year of life. You are being acclimated for life in eternity – to ascend the heavens and to broaden your horizons in unimaginable ways. Therefore, why would you spend the precious time you have in this very intense environment day after day experiencing the mundane, the predictable, the ‘same old – same old’ things that you know too well. Like the infant who needs stimulation to learn and grow properly, you also need stimulation of varying experiences to properly acclimate yourself to your eternal adventure in the grand universe.

“Do something different, meet someone new, explore some new destination and create those intense extraordinary experiences that will better prepare you for eternity. Would you keep an infant child in his or her crib all day without toys or interaction with others? No, you would not because as a parent, you know that is not healthy for a child and that the child must learn how to be human. And so it is with your Heavenly Father, He also wants you to grow and be healthy – be prepared for eternity. Therefore go find those unique experiences that make your life rich.

“You have heard the term, ‘step outside the box?’ This is what you are to do to maximize your short but intense training on the worlds of time and space – step outside the mundane and have life more abundantly! Your guides and guardians are waiting to assist you in having these extraordinary experiences, for they know that this is the way to accelerate your progress.

“It is through these new experiences that you often re-evaluate your purpose, or you reflect on these experiences in a new light and glean new insights and new values. I cannot express how important it is to explore your world – the people, places, and things in it that can help you to be more than you are. Seek and you will find! Ask and it shall be revealed to you. Knock and the door will be open to you. All you desire to be can be realized in this life if only you have the faith to believe, for the universes were created to respond to your desires!

“Put this admonition to the test today, my friends, and see where it will lead you. You will not be disappointed.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”
