Intelligence – Practical and Spiritual

Michigan, US of A, July 1, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Intelligence – Practical and Spiritual.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today we would like to talk about intelligence. Each individual has been given a certain amount of intelligence – mind capacity – the ability to think, reason, and act. Genetics is the main factor that determines how intelligent the individual will be and what capacity or potential he or she will have. This does not however determine whether or not that individual will develop spiritually – it is more often a factor of environment and how one is raised and educated that will allow that individual of high IQ to become open to spiritual concepts and to understand what it means to have faith – the catalyst to attaining higher knowledge.

“On Urantia, it is unfortunate that so many people of high IQ are educated to believe in only what can be seen with the eyes or proven with a scientific method – the current known science of today, and this becomes for them a stumbling block to achieving great new discoveries in science and medicine, for they do not ‘reach out’ into the super-consciousness to ask for help or to receive revelation about some problem that needs to be solved. For these individuals of high potential, spirit works tirelessly from higher planes to project new concepts into the mind so that humanity may benefit from the seeded thoughts of these higher minded ones. It is in this way that ‘the Most Highs rule in the kingdoms of men.’

“These men and women of high IQ have not only the capacity and potential for practical things, but they also possess the capacity and potential for incredible spiritual development if only they would allow themselves to open up to the vast storehouse of higher knowledge that exist in the spiritual realms. On other worlds that are more advanced, they are these higher minds that when discovered in youth, are nurtured and guided to ‘plug in’ to the Universal Mind and bring forth from that higher plane the answers to the problems of a planet for the benefit of the many.

“When the days of the agondonters (those who believe without seeing) are over, and when God’s paradise representatives are present on earth, will those men and women of high potential begin to use the greater portion of their brains that they work so hard to deny themselves because of misguided education and pride? When men’s thinking shifts from the profit motive to the collective benefits of service to the whole of humanity, then will there be a golden age on Urantia.

“Some of the most substantial and humanly beneficial scientific discoveries in the history of Urantia have come about from those individuals who thought outside the paradigms of accepted science or received inspiration in dreams. It is incredibly short sighted for the scientific community and educators to continue this denial of the better half of their natures to receive what God has planned for them to know and share with the people of this world.

“All hope now rest on the shoulders of the children (and the parents) of high potential, that they will not walk through life with blinders on to only accept what is known, but will reach out and receive from the higher planes what God has planned for the benefit of humanity.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Receiver’s note: I was shown in a dream, charts and graphs, that there are areas on the earth where intelligence can be enhanced because of new energies that are coming to earth – where the veil is much thinner and where mind can more easily tap into the knowledge of spirit. These areas are like consciousness amplifiers where if persons of spiritual awareness were to meditate, they would more easily connect with spirit and have greater clarity.

Please do not ask me where they are, for my retention of that dream is fading fast, but hopefully that information will resurface at the time when these new circuits are in place—an exciting future awaits!

Impatience, So Very Human

Illawarra District, Australia, July 9, 2012.
Mentori Spokesperson.
Subject: “Impatience, So Very Human.”

Received by George Barnard.

Mentor: “You are human, wide-spread all over the universes, and your many species live on disparate worlds. In some instances the duration of terrestrial life is no more than forty-five of your years. On other planets your species may well live a few centuries and a little more. Whatever their ways, lives, mindsets, and in whichever way they see themselves, this has always much to do with time, limited time. Most of you are incapable of ‘looking beyond your terrestrial life into eternity’ to always see your future existence as a continuance of life. They are the time limitations you focus on, which create your ‘so very human impatience’.

“Limited time is much of what you have in which to do your planning and your timing as the hours tick away. Time is important as to when to begin a task. Time is important in determining how much time can be allocated to complete the task. Timing is important from the point of view of when a task may dovetail with what follows. It is very much the human way to work out things in time. And to a degree, the Midwayers which are many on most of the worlds also necessarily need to work with time. It is different with Celestials above their ranking.

“The way a Destiny Guardian measures progress is not in time, but in the steps his or her human subject takes and progresses in life – the circles or levels of progress. For other Celestials progress exists in looking forward to see a task nearer completion, but not in how long it takes. It is with humans that time is so important and it is in humans that patience is not always there to be found. For Celestials beyond the realm of the Midwayers, patience and impatience are virtually unknown quantities. They live by what they achieve. They see the future as a number of achievements, personal progress and that of others, as it came about in the past, and as it will come about in the future, whilst they live in the now.

“So much on this earth can be achieved when patience is king. So much on this world is being spoiled when impatience rules. No matter how yogi-like you may become in your life, you will not achieve the total loss of impatience to be entirely like your celestial brothers and sisters. Beyond this life, however, you will be functioning with an entirely different mindset. Actual times, hours ticking away, will no longer be important to you. The completion, the conclusion and the success in your various exercises, in your area’s learning experience, and in your various teaching experiences will become the most important things. And the ‘hour’ will come when you will have changed, when you will look back at your impatience as you expressed it, or suffered from it, back on the planet of your birth. You will then not quite recall what and how you once felt, as you shrug, smile, and move on.

“This is my talk for this evening. I thank you greatly for your time and your interest in the subject. Make patience, constantly practiced, an important part of your life divine. I am the Mentori spokesperson you know so well. I say good night for now.”

George: “Thank you.”

The Final Agreement

Michigan, US of A, June 17, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “The Final Agreement.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about the Final Agreement. What is the Final Agreement? It is the supreme decision between the soul and the Indwelling Spirit to do the Will of the Creator and to ascend and pursue the Paradise path to perfection – to become Godlike and to move inward through the schools of the universes, age upon age, until you have gathered the requisite wisdom and perfection needed to obtain membership in the Corps of Finality on Paradise. It is there where you will then stand in the True Reality, the presence of the Universal Father, where He resides at the center of infinity, and receive the divine embrace.

“This Final Agreement is not something that is necessarily a conscious decision you will make in your human mind, although, your supreme desire to want this is evidence of its eventual consummation. Only after the soul has attained adequate wisdom to understand such a supreme decision can the Agreement be ratified, and more often then not, this shall occur sometime in your mansion world sojourn. For those students on the path, many of you have already made this decision, have traversed the third psychic circle of human personality development, for which you are granted advanced standing.

“Upon making such a supreme decision, you will at once be assigned a Guardian of Destiny (a pair of seraphim) to work with you here, while you still live in the flesh, or later in your mansion world sojourn, they are there to help you in your progress toward the divine goal. Your path to fusion with your God fragment is assured, but is yet revocable by you at anytime prior to fusion with the Divine Indweller. You may at any time reject eternal life – free will reigns supreme in the universe.

“Many of you have already made a conscious decision to do the Will of the Creator and are wondering how and when the soul is ready and wise enough to make this supreme decree. There is no material indicator of this, yet you will know at the core of your being that this is so. What will be evident is that you will feel that ‘oneness’ of being that all spirits in the universes feel – to be a part of the whole and to be a willing participant in the creation. As you go about this co-creative process, you will show forth the fruits of the spirit in your daily lives and work as a universe citizen with that far seeing view of life and eternity.

“If making this Final Agreement is your conscious desire, then my friends, you have taken the first steps toward that end – not really an end, for there are no beginnings or endings on paradise, only unending astonishment as you discover more about the Creator as He reveals infinite possibilities, levels, values, and attributes of Himself – an unending quest for the totality of God.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

A Lesson on Being of Service

Urantia, June 17, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Being of Service.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “We have on occasions discussed the concept of being of service. We return to the subject, and add the word 'loving' to it. In loving service, as in doing the Father’s Will, implies that there is no expectation of something in return. This is the way I would have you serve, as this opens the way to more abundant blessings. Those who serve either grudgingly, or with hidden agendas, place limits upon My blessings, because they have not understood the real meaning of service. It is in being of loving service that you, yourself are blessed. The Creator of everything knows the hearts and minds of all creatures, and knows the secrets of all hearts.

“Many a soul languishes in darkness, because of having been told that as long they fulfil their obligatory duties by paying their dues they are saved. ‘Saved from what,’ I like to know? It is the personal connection to the All That Is, which needs to be in place. It is the way with the most love in it, walked in truth beauty and goodness, with sincerity and honesty of heart. This ought to be your daily striving, to each day become more aware of My Presence within you, and to try each day to love one more person. They are the ‘unlovely’ who also need your love, for you cannot know the aches and pains of another’s heart. All have feelings, and by showing yourself friendly and accepting of one another, you reside in a state of loving service.

“You have the ability to uplift someone else with only a smile. The world is in need of happy and genuine smiles. Nothing is ever forced in the kingdom of God. You need to realize that you are actually already living in the kingdom of God, because there is simply nowhere that God is not. All of the infinitely widespread creation is of God. And the reason that everything is manifesting is the unconditional loving service which His mighty descending Sons render in return to the Father. They are subservient even to lowly creatures such as you, because they know what is possible for you to become when you also begin walking in the way of loving service. In this manner you become more finely attuned to all possible potentials which lie undiscovered before you.

“Humans in the early stages of evolution developed their fictitious ideas and ‘fabricated’ those ideas into gospels for others to follow. Many untruths, superstitions, creeds and dogmas evolved and became established as the infallible word of God. Over time, these shall all fall away when God’s truth becomes more widely known. This will happen to just one person at a time. Those who were offered glimpses of truth, because they took the time to make that personal connection, are becoming the salt of the earth, the lights for others to see. These will be the ones of true loving service because they begin to understand the true meaning as to what it means to lovingly serve. They serve already now without recognition. They serve without attracting attention to themselves, because they are at peace with themselves, for they have found that pearl of great value within themselves, which has become their Guiding Light. Search and you shall find.”

Accepting the Difference

Chicago, US of A, June 19, 2012.
Primary Midwayer Andrea.
Subject: “Accepting the Difference.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Andrea: “What makes a melody a melody? Basically it is a difference in musical tones. If a melody were to be made of only one note, it would obviously not be melody, rather a monotonous repetition of just one note. Similarity and differences make the melody with which God created the Universe of Universes. Consider the Trinity: Although one God, the Creator is uniquely different, being represented in three Persons. Differences are what make us distinct from one another. We all have features that make us particular individuals; we are all unique beings, although greatly similar. Notwithstanding our similarities, it is not easy for Urantians to deal with the differences in others. Why is that so?

“Primitive man had one main struggle in life: survival. To that end he would incessantly look for food and protection. Later, humanity acquired relative safety in survival by the individual managing to first control himself, then the environment and lastly others. The result of this increasing control is what today is called civilization. Civilization is the art of controlling human presence on this planet through governance. There is not much in the way of diversity that government can tolerate. In society, uniformity is essential to control. There can be no governance when anyone is allowed to freely act on his or her own impulses.

“Life is all about similarities and diversities, and in keeping the balance between these two extremes lies the secret of harmony. Each one must accept others the way they are. Mature and responsible individuals are not to be subjugated, or subject others to controlling behavior. Yet, to accept people’s differences does not mean you may support them in any wrongdoing they might be guilty of. However, it does mean for you to respect their free will. In society, humans are all subject to the Law and its officers, a condition commonly called the Social Contract, which prevents chaos and affords communal living, besides ultimately exemplifying the sovereign will of God. Accepting the differences in others is to live and let live. It is, as the Master taught, ‘to neither judge, nor be judged,’ but to allow and respect the freedom to be, to think, and to act responsibly. Acceptance of diversity is primordial to overcoming the many kinds of prejudice against others that still plague all Urantian societies.

“To you it would appear that we Midwayers could easily control people in your realm, given our immaterial attributes of being; this is true only to an extent, since no real control can be exerted without permission or violation of free will – the latter being expressly forbidden to us. There is a limit to the exercise of control over others; even the Gods do not use constraining means to achieve divine goals, rather they bring beings and circumstances to the consensus of the good, acceptable and perfect will of God.

“I am Andrea, your new friend from the Midway Realm. I share your evolutionary origin and life on this world, but I am different from you in many ways. Even so, I am, like you are, part of the universe family of God, in which we are all loved children of a loving Father of all. Peace to you!”
