Trusted With Very Little

Alabama, US of A, February 2, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Trusted With Very Little.”
Personal Admonitions.

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “Desire is the first step in knowing the will of the Father, and it is a fundamental step. It is a good start to every day when you intend to follow the Father’s will. However, circumstances do come about when you are fatigued, when you want to do something else, and when old habits may return. It is then that you need to be extra careful, extra attentive. However, such weaknesses are to be expected in a young creature, who has barely started on the path. Do not doubt that the Father knows and understands, and that Michael certainly knows and understands, since he has lived as one of you.

“I would like you to object less to situations that arise, and which fail to come up to your expectations. Haven’t you been informed of the fact that an adventurous spirit is essential? Live thus, doing your day by day duties, and discover the surprises that are placed on your path. There will be surprises, so don’t concern yourself with the anticipation of when, how, or wherefrom they will come to you. Count on your finding them when you need them most, and in a guaranteed fashion that will help you grow.

“Live always in the present, focused on what you are doing. This is the way to prevent excessive contemplation and theorizing that could well tend to degrade into fantasies that will not help you at all. Whatever you have to do today has been placed there by Me to serve a definite purpose. Remember that 'whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much'. However, how will those who fail at minor projects ever be trusted to succeed at the major tasks? Incidentally, nothing in God’s Kingdom is classified as a minor project to you. Everything the Father does is important, especially those things delegated to be your personal concern.

“When you find yourself in a situation you don’t want to be in, make an effort to find something about it that is enjoyable. The best way to do this is by dedicating yourself one hundred percent to what needs to be done at that moment. 'Each thing you have to do, do it with all your might'. This will greatly help you and will create a work ethic more authentic and inspiring than is the simple discipline of ‘performing one’s duty’. I speak here of learning to gain satisfaction from any situation, being a student who enjoys all the lessons that are provided, and every opportunity to learn, for these types of students advance fastest and enjoy the journey more.”

Exploration

Urantia, January 11, 2013.
The Beloved One.
Subject: “Exploration.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “You are once more in the dark about what we are going to explore. When you explore, it is usually ‘in a place’ where you have never been. Perhaps you will deal with some subject you have never heard of, and you want to check it out. However, you have become selective about how you are spending your precious time in your advancing years. You also realize the years are beginning to count and the thought arises how you are going to spend the rest of your time to make the years count with well-thought-out experiences. After this lengthy introduction let us now go to the ‘meat’ of the subject under discussion: The exploration of the inner life, always so valuable, but even more so as one grows older.

“The first question to ask: “How do you perceive the state of your soul, and what are you bringing with you to the next stage of your eternal existence?” You know by now that spirit and soul belong together, it is only the mortal temple with is being shed at the end of the earth life, and all your character strength and worthwhile experiences will be carried in your soul by your angels to the Mansion worlds beyond. You will even get a much sharper mind to develop in the hereafter. It is therefore very important to keep the mind as clear and clean as possible because that is part of the foundation you will build upon.

“Next I would venture to ask what has been useful in this life and the memories collected, as these will also be part and parcel among your ‘eternal belongings’. This represents the exploration and planning for your eternal future. You are preparing for the next adventure in the eternal journey, climbing the ascension-to-perfection ladder to Paradise. All mortals without exception, and if they so desire, have the chance to plan, prepare, and start informing themselves as to what they can expect so they can ready themselves properly. In this way there will be fewer regrets once they have started on the next rung of their ladder, rather than bemoaning the likelihood that they could have better prepared themselves for the journey.

“Matters are always in a state of flux about what should be done, but once the next ‘step-up’ has taken place, there is no going back, despite some popular reincarnation beliefs. You cannot come back to do what you neglected to do. Such ‘reincarnation thoughts’ can negatively influence your present life. Therefore, please explore the present state of your inner self and notice where you can behave and act in a greater conscious awareness, to make life increasingly more worthwhile, and so you stand to gain the most on a firm foundation of truth, beauty and goodness. Have a loving and profitable relationship with your on-board Partner. Use this Gift from God to the fullest in your life explorations. It is in you to do so.”

Mind and Memory: The Building Blocks of the Soul

Michigan, US of A, January 13, 2013.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Mind and Memory: The Building Blocks of the Soul.”

Received by Chris.

Ophelius: “The message for today is about mind and memory – the ability to recall relationships, past events, past emotions, past visions in the mind’s eye of a moment in time. This is a part of mind, and is not stored in your physical brain, but is a circuit that you have access to that was given to you at your birth, which you will continue to access throughout your ascendant careers. This mind circuit is flexible and it changes in capacity as you grow and learn and begin to perfect your mind. However, your ability to recall past events while on the time-space worlds is wholly subject to how well the physical brain performs as a transceiver. Memory is one of the most important functions of mind, for it is the seat of identity – the history of your experiences and the very thing that defines who you are at any given point in your existence.

“You have three types of memory: Short-term, long-term, and soul memory. The first type, short-term, is mainly used to allow you to function in time-space – to navigate your environment, to experience the ‘moment to moment’ passage of time. This first type can be thought of as the qualifier for what types of experiences will be filed in the long-term and soul-memory. Insignificant events, such as what you had for breakfast, will not be filed in the long-term or the soul memory.

“The second type, long-term, is the storage house for significant events, relationships, and emotional moments that are passed on from the short-term memory and retained as part of a library of comparative experiences that you will draw from when making decisions about new experiences and how you will process them – the ability to learn, adapt, and acquire wisdom. These are the memories that contribute to your personality development.

“Those significant events, relationships, decisions, and emotional experiences that contribute to the perfection of the human personality are recognized by the Indwelling Spirit (your Thought Adjuster) as having survival value, and will be routed to the third type of memory – soul-memory, which is ‘set aside,’ so to speak, or ‘counter-parted’ by the Thought Adjuster. These survival value memories, my friends, are the most valuable to you as an ascendant personality, for they are the building blocks of the soul and will become the ‘new child’ of the universe in the hereafter. These memories will be retained by the Thought Adjuster and will remain eternally in His possession whether or not you survive. Your decision to continue the journey inward assures that your unique ability to gather and process experiences will continue in the same stream of consciousness.

“This is your gift and contribution to the emergence of the Supreme Being – you and every sentient being in the grand universe are a part of the whole of universal mind. This is the unity of being, and it goes beyond the human experience and connects all consciousness everywhere back to Source. This may be thought of as your service to God – to understand this relationship as a child of the Divine Parent and to contribute survival value experiences to the glory of the Whole or the One. In Him we live, and move, and have our being. God has given us the opportunity to explore and co-create the universes through mind and memory, for He has provided the canvas of love and the primary colors of truth, beauty, and goodness to paint our masterpiece. Go now and display your work in the gallery of the Most High.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

A Life of Growth and Great Satisfaction

Alabama, US of A, February 2, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “A Life of Growth and Great Satisfaction.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “Realize that in order for you to be doing the Father’s will, you neither need to go to far away places, nor abandon your community. Here and now you can do a lot for your fellows, and for your spiritual growth.

“A life dedicated to doing the will of the Father is by all accounts a life of growth and great satisfaction. The will of God is that His creatures are to grow spiritually and become increasingly more like Him. This process involves for the creature to discover the wonders of the universe and to grow in the understanding of that universe. In other words, it is the greatest adventure to which mortal creatures can aspire, the wonderful destiny of returning to the Source and Center of all that is.

“This is why when today you notice that you are indeed doing what the Father expects of you, your soul does experience great satisfaction. In these moments, when you surprise yourself in enjoyment of what you are doing – being in a state of total concentration on present tasks – that is when you are made aware of the fact that you are on the path that your Father has offered you. This satisfaction is available to all who choose to follow the guidance of the Divine Spark that dwells in their hearts.

“There may come harsh times. Maybe sometimes you will have to choose between what you want to do and what you need to do. Sometimes the will of the Father will seem to be against all routine progress of the material world. This is only a myth created by human beings when they try to impose their own material desires over the impulses of their spirit. However, those uncomfortable moments happen rather infrequently and when you make the right choice, it strengthens the muscles of faith and makes the human personality more balanced and firm.

“Living according to the will of the Father is consciously choosing what is best for you. The wisdom of this choice may not be evident at first, but soon you will start to see the results and start to notice how you begin to transform from the inside into a being of light with an increasingly more real survival potential.”

Optimism with Faith

Chicago, US of A. December 13, 2012.
Teacher Prolotheos.
Subject: “Optimism with Faith.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheos: “When analyzing this world’s situation, one might find equal reasons for being optimistic or pessimistic about its future. Optimism can easily become utopist, if not tempered with a good dose of reality, while too much reality, with little or no faith in the goodness of God managing His universes, will lead to incurable pessimism. It’s difficult for humans to gain a balanced view about anything on which they focus their attention. Your dualistic ethics causes you to constantly bounce between good and evil, sometimes seeing things as more positive than they present, at other times determining them to be much worse than they really are.

“Unfortunately, comparably few humans maintain a balanced realistic view of life on Urantia. Among the reasons is their observing much evil being practiced in your world, as well as one’s perhaps tacit acknowledgement that he or she is equally capable of practicing evil. Besides this, there is your very human limited view and understanding of your purpose, which also contributes to insecurity towards life. Therefore, it is understandable why pessimistic outlooks prevail in very many people, giving the impression that evil prevails. Fortunately, most people wish it would not, and that is the positive aspect of such pessimistic impressions.

“Although a realistic view may seem ideal, a lucid optimistic view is in fact most desirable, as it leaves room for the exercise of faith in the supernatural, while crude realism only believes in what is now, without an allowance for faith in Providence. The apostle Paul once said, ‘If our hope is limited only to this world, we are indeed the most unfortunate.’ Therefore, pessimism follows unbelief; but faith brings hope that is basis for an optimistic view of life. Some of the dangers of optimism are a denial of evil, becoming a victim of manipulation; and thirdly, finding oneself embarking upon delusional predictions.

“A balanced view is a rare virtue for human beings, because it is hard to find one’s equilibrium in unfinished realities such as are the universes of time and space, especially on the evolutionary spheres where change is the norm. A functionally balanced view in life does not necessarily represent a perfect equilibrium. Rather, it means being flexible, which allows you to navigate through often stormy waters, and at times through tempestuous seas, always seeking your natural center. Sometimes a pessimistic view reflects a negative reality. Then, both perception and reality are in need of positive action to bring reality back to its acceptable center range.

“Therefore, my pupil, life on a world like Urantia conveys a wide spectrum of views, ranging from the extremely pessimistic to the fantastically optimistic. The extremes must be avoided, each human being has his or her internal center, the view of life advocated by the Spirit Within; and so, life can be both interesting and worth living. Keep your ‘balanced range in thinking, speaking and acting’, and life will mostly run smooth, but not without problems, disappointments, even tragedies, for perfection is yet time-distant in your journey. I am your spiritual tutor, Prolotheos; peace be with you all.”
