The Fundamentals of Light and Life

Michigan, US of A, August 12, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Fundamentals of Light and Life.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today we will talk about how the earth is getting ready to move from its current state of seeming chaos to one that is sober and ready to embrace the fundamentals of Light and Life. On more normal worlds in the universe, where there has been no rebellion, this shift is gradual and steady, but on your world, because of its confusion, it will come like a new mother who is in the pangs of child birth, where, after great pain, will come the joy of holding the new life that has finally arrived. She will soon forget the pain of labor and make plans to nurture the fragile life that she holds so dearly.

“The calamitous events, both natural and social, will fall like dominos and pick up speed, and finally, when they have all come to rest, then will you hear rumors of the appearance of the magisterial son, Monjoronson. When he and his administration move into the public arena, he will be working with the remnants of civil governments and progressive organizations to establish new sustainable societies. When men and women hear the wisdom from a paradisiacal viewpoint they will listen and understand that it is in their best interest to work with, and not against, his wise recommendations, for they will recognize that their very survival depends on the guided solutions that will be worked out to benefit the many. The old corrupt model of scarcity, greed, and elitism will be swept from world consciousness as the pillars of their control will have been dismantled and looked upon in disdain by new generations.

“In the following years after the dust has settled, and there is forward moving progress, events will again accelerate as the opposition to Monjoronson’s plans for the restructuring of societies fades and the fruits of these new sustainable ideas begin to flourish. The nations will work together like no other time in history to cast aside their suspicions and hostilities and bring an end to all wars and terrorism – they shall, as it has been foretold, ‘beat their spears into plow shears.’

“It may be at this time of peace that Christ Michael shall solidify his plans to return to the earth and officially usher in the age of Light and Life. It will be a time of great joy, a renaissance of advanced learning, art, science, and technology that will culminate the consciousness of humanity as they finally come to know the true meaning of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. Science and religion will have finally come full circle as men and women more fully understand the ascension plan and no longer will they ask, ‘Is there really a God?’ The time of the agondonters (those who believe without seeing) will be over.

“Make ready your hearts and minds, my friends, for you students on the path will be asked to participate in this brave new world that is at hand. You who have faithfully believed in this divine plan for the birth of the age of Light and Life may be called on by the Magisterial Son and His staff to work with the governments of earth to bring about the changes in thinking necessary to make ready for Christ Michael’s return to the earth.

“Peace to all,
“The Circle of Seven.”

What is Spiritual in You

Chicago, US of A, August 7, 2012.
Teacher Prolotheos.
Subject: “What is Spiritual in You.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheus: “My lesson for you at this time deals with what is spiritual about you. Mankind’s materialism becomes totally irrelevant when analyzed from a higher and better-informed perspective, since most of what constitutes a human being hails from a spiritual origin. The nature of human beings features six distinct aspects: body, life, mind, soul, spirit and personality. Of these, only the first, the body, is indeed material, whilst all others are either spiritual in themselves or spiritual in origin.

“In your current state on Urantia, the first set of body, life and mind are transitory – they are endowments to facilitate your presence in your world. Accordingly, you in various ways share these features with various species of the animal kingdom. The remaining three features, soul, spirit and personality are of a permanent nature and essence, but only become permanently yours if you choose life eternal with the Father. Therefore, let us say that body, life and mind are ‘earthly endowments’, while soul, spirit and personality are ‘heavenly endowments’. That said, let us identify each of them and see their function in your present, and future morontia existences.

“First, consider the ‘earthly endowments’: body, life and mind. Your body, although strictly material, is notwithstanding a gift from spiritual beings, the Life Carriers. These extraordinary Sons of Christ Michael assist in starting the evolutionary process on material worlds like Urantia. Our local universe Mother Spirit, Nebadonia, supplies the energy spark which enlivens the body. Mind is the gift of our Mother Spirit also, provided through her diverse distribution of the seven adjutant mind-spirits. Mature humans host all seven of these adjutant mind-spirits.

“Ponder now the ‘heavenly endowments’: soul, spirit and personality. All of these are personal gifts from the Creator Father. Soul is a morontia seed in you, which, if ‘watered with goodness, truth and beauty’ has potential to ultimately become a seventh-stage spirit. The real ‘spirit’ in you is a Spirit-Fragment of the Father, sent to inhabit your mind to lead you to do the Father’s will. This is not the Holy Spirit, as Christians interpreted, but it is, if correctly interpreted, the ‘genius’ and ‘Spirit of the Lord’ that once inhabited the great minds and prophets of old on Urantia, Who later, beginning on the Day of Pentecost, came to inhabit all normal minds. Finally, there is the most intriguing of all endowments: personality. Personality, although it is not the self (you), is the seat of human will and consciousness, besides being the unifying factor of all other endowments that constitute a human being.

“Although many do not realize this, human beings are primarily spiritual beings – both in origin and constitution. The material aspect is only the body that now hosts these spiritual gifts that constitute what each of you really is: a child of God. I am Prolotheos, your tutor on High. We might return to this topic, as there is more to impart about it. Peace, my pupil, to you and all readers.”

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.”
