Meditative Listening

Urantia, January 9, 2017.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Meditative Listening.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “We have spoken before about the heart being the true mind of the body, where positive and negative memories are stored; also including everywhere in the body, potentially leading to pain and discomfort. The brain is the material computer, where the necessary connections are being made or deleted. The heart is the most important component as feeling and discernment is lodged there. The quality of listening involves both the heart and the head.

“The thought process can be in danger of dying off due to laziness leading to lack of use, scattered use or non-use. A potentially brilliant mind can increase new connections exponentially through the habit of being aware and through entertaining honest and sincere thoughts followed by right actions. It is very important to realize that with laziness in the thought process, these potential connections are in danger of weakening; resulting in diminished listening skills, especially at an advancing age.

“Meditation has proved to be an excellent discipline to still unruly and restless minds. God has bestowed many potential gifts upon mortals, which lie as yet dormant in the human mind, and can or will only be turned into perfect actuality in eternity, if the mortal chooses immortality. The question often arises, ‘how does one go about improving listening skills and making better use of the mind?’ Actually, it is very simple and yet at the same time the most complex. The fact is that the more you turn to your on-board Partner within, the more the quality of listening will improve over time.

It is the inner focus that matters, so the outward noises become less intruding, and even when a sudden noise erupts on the ‘outside,’ you will no longer be startled by this, because the habit of concentration has over time become so established that it has become ‘second nature’ to you. This is being accomplished with perseverance and dedication.

“As a rule mortals rationalize belief systems to make sense out of life. Faith grows when belief is put to practice and comes alive in the activities of the believer through the exercise of trust and hope of a better future practicing the creative love of the Giver of Love towards all others. Head and heart will have become in balance together and start moving in an increasingly greater equilibrium, so in time all the ‘pieces will fit together as does a fine clock mechanism.’

“A refined harmony in the physical body will result as the great central nervous system is under the benevolent influence of the heart/brain, which filters down to all the nerve endings, into the fluids, tissues, bones as all organs reap the benefits of this influence throughout the physical system. The mental, emotional and physical systems become increasingly ruled by the spiritual. As man and woman think, that they become, as this is the law of cause and effect. Therefore, be advised to sharpen your listening skills by taking precious time to turn within and learn to listen to the Still Voice within with focused attention. The benefits accrued over time are beyond measure.”

Preparing for the Task

Illawarra District, Australia, January 10, 2017.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Preparing for the Task.” (much shortened transmission)

Message received by George Barnard.

Thought Adjuster: “Life on an evolutionary planet such as Urantia — and in particular for a short-lived species like the local Homo Sapiens — needs to be an action packed venture from which those with ideas of making great achievements must be jealous of their time. With barely sufficient free time, you call R&R, you have worked with gusto on a latent talent to make the very most of it, develop it and bring it to the height that has so far been accomplished.

“What do we mean by all that? It means that you and I from the very first start have learned to work together in pictures, more so than in words or concepts. It means that I can leave your body at any time, day or night, investigate any scene and bring home the pictures, where you can lift them from my cooperating mind in the same way others gather words or sentences. Truly there is no notable difference between seeing or hearing and hearing or seeing . . . and what sadly still goes right over the heads of most of your siblings.

“From the moment you open your eyes each morning you see one random happening after another, but the Creator of All knows exactly what will happen next. From the moment you drive onto the freeway you note traffic patterns you never saw before, but I knew what they looked like yesterday or last week, more likely so. And even before you were born, I knew you would be mine to love, to guide, to educate and to ‘become.’ Yes, still before this world became a reality our Father-Creator knew you — your successes and your failures, your talents and inabilities, your optimism and despair — all of these things and nothing left out.

“And the Mastermind of Paradise, of all the architectural spheres and of all evolutionary worlds knew at what task you would be most useful to Him and just Who would acquire the expertise through living, the education through learning, the motivation through setbacks, to firstly be by your side and lastly be a part of you, to go on, do on and be on, in faithfully serving the Great King of all that Is in His new deep-space domain.

“On our long, long journey, as we prepare ourselves for the task to be awarded to us, ever keep His Pride in us in mind. But realize that not one of you, human beginners, is special, especially treated, advantaged above others or unusually favored in any way.

“You all are equally loved!

“Remember me every minute in your day for what I AM.”

Be Spiritual All the Time

Oregon, US of A, December 24, 2016.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Be Spiritual All the Time.”

Message received by Anyas.

“Man aspires by worship to be better and thereby eventually attains the best.” [UB 2095:06]

Thought Adjuster: “You are spiritual beings having a physical experience. Ideally, it could also be said that you are physical beings having a spiritual experience as there should be no demarcation line within yourself. Looking at it from this perspective is placing the spotlight on your spiritual experience.

“How many among you can honestly say that their life is an ongoing spiritual experience? Such a question is meant to help you look at your experience from a different and higher perspective.

“Indeed ‘being spiritual’ is not a part-time job, an afterthought or a hobby — a brief moment in your day when you send some hasty thoughts to the Divine before retreating to your mundane ‘busy-ness.’ Frequently, religion is being compartmentalized. What I mean by that is that its adepts turn to God at some prescribed times of the day, on some specific days of the week, or on very special occasions.

“The adherence to these religious ‘duties’ may lead you to believe that you are religious. Yet, are you spiritual? Are you living as the spiritual beings you are? Are you able to be spiritually spontaneous? This is how you should look at your life as therein lies the key to finding your inner harmony and to dealing with its occurrences from a much higher and wiser perspective.

“Whenever you are a part-time religionist — a week-end warrior so to speak — you unconsciously compartmentalize your spiritual life and make it difficult for it to overflow into your daily life. This is the reason why on their ‘off days’ — in spite of their professed spirituality — many are venting baser and pestering emotions of hate, resentment, bitterness, antagonism, and much more toward their siblings — projecting the worst, rather than expecting the best. These are faulty foundations for a better world; they keep refueling the fires of antagonism and separation.

“Dear ones, be spiritual all the time as it is your true nature. Be unified within your being so that you are no longer conflicted in your way of life. Tear down the dividers within your life that make it look okay for you to be spiritual at times and hateful at others — thus displaying a very split and bipolarized personality. Rather than squandering your precious energies by judging others harshly and without being qualified to do so, go within and bring your own affairs in order. This is what you are called to do as fully-fledged spiritual beings.”

Urantia, January 01, 2017.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “Connectedness.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “On any day of the year it is useful to spend some time thinking about connectedness and the reason for being alive. It is important to realize that there is far more to life than what is ‘visible to the naked eye.’ Material eyes see so very little until instruments are developed which permit you to penetrate the mysteries of creation. There is far more potential in humans than they are aware of and this has always been known to varying degrees.

“The ‘inner eye’ or ‘inner seeing’, could be better developed and is already more developed in blind people as they miss the distractions of the ‘outer’ world and are therefore more connected to the inner world as the outer, visual, aspect is missing. I am speaking in particular about sensory perception. Therefore, let us discuss this inner connectedness, which is far more real as it is connected via the sense perception of intuition using trust and belief, leading to faith and knowingness. Inner knowingness is the true connectedness to the Source of all life, which remains hidden from mortal eyes.

“It is through the prompting of that Spark from God, the Thought Adjuster within, and the longing in the evolving human soul which feels the ‘pull’ to God, and starts the search as it seeks to know the Source of its being. The connection to the Creator needs to be activated by the human even though this connection has always existed. At that point the human realizes more fully the connection to the Creator as fact because the inner connection has come alive through meditation and prayer engaged in. This is the ultimate and most important connection that through desire and dedication on the part of the creature becomes established.

“Of course as with all the relationship connections you make in life, you are to make sure that it remains a vital and an energetic living connection such as you express in your life with other relationships. This cannot be otherwise. As time goes by, you will recognize others who also crave this connection to their Source, as this gives a marvelous stability in a very unstable world.

“Many hungry and so-called ‘lost souls’ harbor an indefinable longing to be ‘plugged in,’ to be connected to something greater than their selves. They have yet to start flexing their ‘under-used faith muscles’ in all situations in which they find themselves, to learn and know that there is Hope for better things to come. Anyone who desires to be connected to the Source of their being can do so by turning within to find what they are seeking. All normal thinking humans have their own Gift from God within waiting for them.

“It takes time for the under-used muscles of trust and faith to gain strength and vitality but the Vital Spark within is always there to encourage each one if they will only take the time to connect up. The Spirit of Truth will guide each one in all truth and the Holy Spirit will on request help to open the hearts and minds, so the soul can receive the nurturing it needs to grow, and inspire the mortal to lead a more active life whilst connected to the Source within.”

About the Present Moment

Alabama, US of A, September 12, 2012.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “About the Present Moment.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “One of the keys to happiness is to always live in the present moment. What does this mean? Without doubt, human beings live in the present moment because their physical existence is tied to a time frame. However, it is in the mind of man where time can be transcended and it is in the mind where a mortal must exercise control.

“Living in the present moment is to focus on the task at hand. It is to be somewhere without fantasizing about being someplace else. It is to face life with an attentive and awakened mind in order to overcome the challenges of human existence. Living in the present moment is a progressive awakening in which life becomes increasingly more real to those who decide to focus on the here and now.

“Many among you waste a lot of time fantasizing about what may happen and lamenting the facts and mistakes of the past. In the end, these concerns are useless, because there is nothing you can do to change something that has already happened nor are you capable of predicting what could happen. It is by acting in the present moment that you can exert some influence over your future. It is in this moment that you can decide to learn from the mistakes of the past or to remedy the situations that are the consequences of those mistakes.

“However, living in the present doesn’t imply a myopic vision of reality, in which immature mortals forget the intelligent planning that is necessary to ensure their well-being. The present time is not just a point in an infinite line going from the past to the future. When I suggest that you should live in the present, I am indicating that you should acquire an eternal point of view of reality. Only in this way will you be able to make the supreme decision of finding God without being concerned about when this goal will be reached, because to the Father this is already a reality in eternity.

“Once you have definitively made a fundamental decision in your life — one of eternal value — this becomes a reality in eternity and also in the experience of those who have learned to trust their Father and who have accepted by faith that they are His beloved children, to whom nothing is denied once they have decided to know and live the divine will.”
