A Lesson in Accepting

Urantia, July 23, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson in Accepting.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “The difference between Accepting and Acceptance is willingness – your willingness to carry whatever responsibility is placed upon your shoulders. This is one of the greatest lessons you can learn. There are many occasions in life when one acts without thinking and has to learn to live with the consequences. Acceptance of such consequences is not always an easy matter. Sometimes the rest of one’s life is involved, because for a moment in time one did not consider the consequences. This is often the case when one innocently and unthinkingly allows matters to unfold. Mistakes can be made which can turn out to be the greatest lessons in character building, and which could not have been learned in another way.

“In the end, it truly does not matter how you live a progressive life. All roads lead to the ultimate goal of perfection as you become like the Supreme Ruler of all the universes of space, formed and not yet completed by the method of evolution. This is the grandest and unique form of creation. You are the microcosm of time-space while the universes are the macrocosm. Like the cosmos, you also evolve according to your divine blueprint. Each thinking person can become an active co-creator with the eternal God, by honoring that infinite Gift, the Spark of God within. Initially named your Thought Adjuster, this Gift, with your permission and by your desire for greater progress can become your Thought Controller.

“However, this Gift will never coerce you. This control of thoughts is willingly given on your part. This is the Accepting which seals your destiny as an inducted perfecting being, which will in time and space culminate into a growing and perfecting spirit. There is vast time and space involved in this culmination of the divine plan. There is, however, also the span of eternity in which to accomplish this. It may burst some bubbles here in your thinking of the next life as eternal bliss, which in a way it is. Nevertheless, it will be required of you that you work on the unfoldment of your own perfection. In accepting the leadings of your Spirit Guide within, you will make life for yourself a great deal more joyful, because you will have come to the realization that you are a much beloved child of the eternal God – this despite your perhaps having had to face acceptance of ill-considered past choices and wilfully impatient decisions.

“Accepting the leadings of your Spirit Guide within will not transform your life into a bed of roses. Indeed it will not, but you will now know that you will never again be bereft of help. You will have in some mysterious way become willing to be lead through the hills and vales of life. You will learn what will be the best direction in which to live up to your precious blueprint. It is with a deep satisfying joy that you will start walking your path into eternity, no matter the hurdles on the road. Hardship has a way of bringing the best out of people. You are all potential Finaliters in the race towards perfection.

“There is not a single human being, who will not be welcomed at the banquet of the Master Designer of everything. It is His will that all should survive, but it shall depend on your personal willingness to accept this. Think about how you can cooperate in this eternal adventure set out before you, with this material life becoming the foundation for the next stage of your eternal existence.”

Everyone is Precious!

Chicago, US of A, July 7, 2012.
The Spirit Within.
Subject: “Everyone is Precious!”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Valdir: “My Spirit Within, please teach me about the topic you gave me, ‘Everyone is Precious.’

Spirit Within: “Yes, my child, you pondered the many lives that are coming into existence on this planet – many of them seemingly of no importance to others, due to their short lives, or their utterly impoverished status. That is not how we Adjusters see the lives we come to share with our human hosts. For us every life is precious, because they are the sons and daughters of the Father Creator. Although before coming to indwell a human being we do consider the potential for that child to become an ascender, we do not discard those who seem less favored by material conditions, because what counts in a human career is not how one starts it, but how one will finish it. Many times we see real potential, which simply will not show up in this existence, but in the mansion world lives to come.

“However, even if the background of a candidate is very promising, it is no guarantee that such an individual will choose the way of the Father. Ultimately, it is left exclusively to his or her exercise of free-will – in which not even we, the Adjusters, are allowed to interfere. Now, to specifically address your pondering about those that do not look promising – rather the contrary – you should know that high beings in the Father’s Universe crave for those assignments that are most difficult, most challenging to them. And that is the reason why even people that eventually will refuse to follow the ascension career are indeed chosen by experienced Adjusters, as to give them all opportunity to choose the will of God.

“Yes, my child, all lives are equally precious to their indwelling Adjusters, just as you are precious to me. You have wondered many times why among all your immediate siblings you were the only one to become God-knowing in the way you are. Rest assured that nothing was done without your willing cooperation. I certainly had my share of dealings and leadings to bring you to your present status of spiritual conscience, as it is my function to do this. Ultimately, your decisions were what brought you here. Besides, this is only the beginning. Much, much more is coming your way, both in this sphere and on your journey to Paradise. Just keep striving, my child, to continually do the will of the Father and I will take you to your most desired day, the day you will stand, with supreme joy in your heart, before the First Source and Center of All, your Paradise Father and Father of all!

“In the Father’s vast domains, there is no such person as an insignificant human being. All of you are His offspring; and so valuable are you that even we, pure fragments of Him, come to indwell you, hoping to become one with you. I love you, my child, you are precious to me – always remember!”

The Morontia World

Illawarra District, Australia, July 19, 2012.
Midwayer Chief, Bzutu (ABC-22).
Subject: “The Morontia World.”

Received by George Barnard.

Bzutu: “The questions posed near and far will likely become obvious by the answers I will provide. And yes, I’m here still and have no knowledge of any mission for myself or my crew on a faraway world. Life goes on, we are hardly displeased, and will enjoy being both serious as well as playing tricks on you two. We are covering the evolutionary, the morontia, and the spiritual existence, but hardly, we will admit, as experts about the latter sphere and its physiology.

“About the evolutionary worlds, the creature training worlds, we are well informed. Evolutionary worlds are ‘born’ in a number of standard ‘explosive ways’, and they may evolve to be suitable homes for the shortest-lived of His creatures, humans. That is what you are. You are born, you live, and you die, and hopefully you will have done your ‘Spirit on loan’ proud by assisting Him or Her by helping to grow, yes, mature the soul that will see you on the way to perfection.

“The Spiritual world has its headquarters on Paradise, the Super-universes and Local universes. Their citizens are either created perfect, have perfected themselves, but not by any means are the majority of them complete in time-space experiences. Only a few of the myriad spirit species are known to you. You are unable to perceive any of these, unless they particularly wish for you to note their presence, and then only if and when your Spirit Self allows it.

“The Morontia world is the busiest time-space arena. It holds a multitude of morontia creatures, but they exist in time-frames that are stepped up from ‘close to linear time’ in which you live to ‘close to eternity’ in which Spirit Personalities reside. The very ‘lowest rung on the ladder’ is occupied by the Secondary Midwayers, next are the Primary Midwayers, the Morontia Cherubim above them, and the various rungs occupied by angels and ever higher creature orders.

“Each of these morontia creatures of countles types, from the lowest to the highest, have greatly diverse abilities. Some can ‘warp time’, as we can, and can decide right now to turn up five minutes earlier to effect certain changes, control your thinking when given permission, walk though walls, keep animals as pets by taking them from your time frame, and for a time pulling them into theirs.

“In the same way we can materialize into your realm, we can slip into that of the Primary Midwayers. Many other morontia creatures are capable of such. Sense your emotions and teach you at a distance, they can, as well as take in various streams of information simultaneously. As you spend your many years in the morontia realms, you will learn these things and more, and as you progress each time, you will be gifted new great mind endowments in turn.

“This is ABC-22. I have answered the questions to the extend I was allowed to answer them. Be well, my friend.”

George: “Cheers to the entire platoon, and thanks.”

Counting the Blessings

Michigan, US of A, July 15, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Counting the Blessings.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today is a day for counting blessings, for each of you have so much to be thankful for, to have gratitude and appreciation for all that is – this life of wonder, amazement, this journey through hardship and joy, which has been prepared for you that you may participate in the creation of the universe. It is often difficult to see how blessed you truly are when you are so immersed in the affairs of the material world, and so we must sometimes stop and quiet the mind and bring ourselves into the hush of the moment and expand our mind, our thoughts, our feelings, and reach up to that higher plane and view our own lives from the perspective of the Creator, and when we do this, we feel the unconditional love – that feeling of true oneness, that we belong to the family of God.

“Is it not amazing, my friends, when you stop and view life from a higher perspective? When you consider that this life you have now is only the beginning of an unending journey of astonishment, wonder, and growth? Do you not see how this beginning is the acclimation, the prerequisite elementary requirement for eternity? Do you not feel how much you have grown – to look back and see how you have, step by step, been led to where you are today – to have more self control over the ego, to have let go of all the negativity and strife that this world can inflict on your mind and attitude toward life, yourself, and others?

“Let us stop now and count our blessings and be thankful for all that you are and all that you will become. Let us be thankful for the opportunities that abound in our lives and that we have complete control over our will to choose which path we will travel. Realize that no other person, institution, or entity controls you or your destiny, but that you have been given the freedom to make any reality you choose to have in this life and in eternity. Yes, the road can be difficult to travel sometimes and life seems hard, but do you not see how these adversities become the very thing that set you free and give you the capacity for the appreciation of contrast – to know the lowest of lows and then to soar to the highest of highs? What an amazing creature you are to experience life so dynamically!

“Have you ever experienced true love – to feel and to share with another the most intimate expression of selflessness, caring, and passion. If you have not, then it remains an opportunity for you to see the reflection of the Creator in others and it is waiting for you to seek out and find. The Creator wants you to see and discover this true love in others so you can have an appreciation for the supreme love, the divine love that exists between the Parent and the child – God and his created children. The love that you experience in this life is only a foretaste of the ‘super love’ you will experience as you travel inward and find the God of all creation. The closer you get the more you will shine with that divine glow that binds the universes together.

“Stop now and consider all these blessings. ‘Thank you God for giving me life!’

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Revenge versus Justice

Chicago, US of A, July 9, 2012.
Teacher Prolotheos.
Subject: “Revenge versus Justice.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheos: “Let us start this lesson by proposing that there are things which seem good, but on closer observation are found to be evil in disguise. One example is covered by today’s topic of Revenge versus Justice. Revenge may seem to imply something akin to justice, because it appears to share some aspects with justice, like retribution or punishment. In fact, revenge has nothing to do with Justice, because the former seeks to make things even according to personal standards, whilst the latter seeks to rectify things – make things right according to the law. Adherence to the rule of law is a mark of an advanced society, whereas the acceptance of revenge is a left over characteristic of barbarism.

“Revenge may originate from a rightful feeling, the need to punish the wrong and evildoing against the innocent. However, the idea of meeting out justice with one’s own hands is altogether repulsive, since it allows the offended party to practice the same violence he or she condemned in the first place. Even when the law allows society to punish by committing the same violence, it’s a sign of social primitivism. Furthermore, the desire for revenge comes from an immature and misguided self, which cannot deal with the injustice perpetrated against the self or another, whilst retaining a spiritual attitude.

“There is much truth in the saying that ‘man can fool human justice, but never God’s’. Ultimately, from a universe perspective, revenge shows ignorance of, or indifference to justice inherent in the universe of universes. In fact, there is in place a divine universe law that compensates and adjusts all that is counter to the will of God. Such a law may be called Karma, retribution, pay-back, or the ‘boomerang effect’, whichever best fits your believes. Basically it is the universe’s natural justice at work, seeking the final fulfillment of the will of the Father.

“It is difficult for human beings to cope with a lack of justice, which is commonplace during the present social development of Urantia. And this may instill the impression that in some cases revenge is justifiable. Revenge may bring satisfaction, but never justice. Justice, in civilized societies implies the necessity of ‘due process’ in which a person is held responsible for crimes committed, and is guaranteed the right of defense. Revenge wrongly ‘places upon’ the individual the functions of legislator, judge and executioner, which obviously is unlawful. However, when all hope for human justice is lost, trusting in God’s justice is the correct and humane thing to do.

“Some old religious records on Urantia inaccurately describe God as the ‘Avenger of the innocent’. Such a primitive concept legitimizes the practice of revenge among God-fearing people and leads to the thought that seeking revenge is, in certain ways, doing the ‘work of God’. The Father is not in the business of avenging people. He effects justice, not because He loves the innocent better than the offender; rather, he loves both equally, and renders justice because it is inherent in His character.

“I am Prolotheos, your friend and tutor on high. Peace to you.”
