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.”

The Effort of Faithfulness

Urantia, January 9, 2013.
The Beloved One.
Subject: “The Effort of Faithfulness.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Although you have no idea of what the subject might be, you fully expect a message to be forthcoming. It proves your expectation of my being faithful to you, and it proves your being faithful to me. Allow me to tell you that everything is according to God’s plan, for you are steadily moving forward in your listening skills. It is in the inner world where the fastest growth can happen if the creature is willing to listen. It is my observation that people are willing to spend large sums of money so they can learn from an outsider how to contact their God within. I tell you right now that all have been born with the ability to quite alone accomplish that task. One does not need to be ‘spoon-fed’ by others who have done the work for themselves. It becomes far more soul-satisfying if humans will individually discover the Gift of their innermost selves, which entails, needless to say, some hard work. Nothing of value is ever gained if one is handed this Gift on a silver platter.

“The greatest satisfaction and soul-peace is gained by those whose lives have been forged between hammer and anvil, experiencing what they boldly chose through their free will and decisions. Even though some things appear to happen because of the mistakes of others, there is always a lesson in it, somewhere, which can lead to greater insight, even though this might not be immediately apparent. It takes a lot of living, and inner recognition that everything is always well. Mistakes are of value for the simple reason that one can learn from them so they don’t need to be repeated. Therefore it is befitting to each human with a normal thinking capacity to consider that they have the power within them to change their life if they are not happy. They don’t need to be told how and why to connect up to the living Spark from God within them. All they need to do is go into the Silence and persevere. It is they who need to make that decision and no one else can speak for them.

“It is their responsibility to make that connection, even though it is helpful to at times get pointed into the right direction by those who have blazed the trail before them. Ultimately each mortal is responsible for making their own connection to God, as no one else can do it for them. This is the only short-cut you can make. Visiting your places of worship is only good for social interaction – to be with kindred spirits, who are also trying to make that all important connection to the All That Is. This planet is on the cusp of a grand spiritual awakening, and the best way to proceed is to turn within to commune with the indwelling Spark from God asking for your daily directions as to how best to do Gods will. After that, simply allow the day to unfold according to his will – the way with the most love.”

Human Groups, Uniformity and Variety

Illawarra District, Australia, January 3, 2013.
The Damascus Scribe.
Subject: “Human Groups, Uniformity and Variety.”

Received by George Barnard.

The Scribe: “Before you get the wrong idea, which, being human, you so easily do, let me make this important statement now: The Creator Father loves you all equally. It is a long-ago established fact that a man is no more important than his wife, the king no better than his serf, the old no more or less valuable to Him, than the young. Further on this theme, the seraphim are no more loved than are the cherubim. All on this earth, in these time-space universes, yes, on timeless Paradise, are equally loved by their Creator.

“Equality in being loved, however, does not imply uniformity. There is an enormous variety of intelligent creatures calling themselves sons or daughters of God. For every conceivable function to be fulfilled within time-space and ‘eternity’ there is a species capable of performing such tasks, and these species number in their thousands. Even they have, as have you, been granted diverse personalities by the Father Creator. Thus, throughout the far-flung universes there is uniformity in individual functions, yet endless variety of personality.

“Viewed from where you are placed, there is something missing in the total equation that allows midwayers and angels to sharply discern what group a certain human being belongs to. At times identified in their common language as Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Crows, Doves or Sparrows, it is hardly astrology they refer to, or animal totems. No, the answer lies in Thought Adjuster education on Divinington, which is given in countless different classes on countless varied subjects each. Remember, my dear friend and student, that all is known.

“The Adjusters, advanced as they may have become, know time and place and the human personality of their future fusion, perhaps thousands of years forward in time. Therefore they can select their curriculum to suit the personality of the mortal, and so, whoever and whatever you will become, your Adjuster will have foreseen, and ‘have made a career out of’ what will suit you most. Your experiences, and the Thought Adjuster’s education must… dovetail, because at fusion time an eternal career has begun.

“At the very moment of fusion, a new person is born, and the former human will have brought to this entirely new creature a perfecting personality, valuable experience, infinite courage, extensive knowledge, great wisdom and empathy, treasured skills and more. At that very same moment of fusion, the Thought Adjuster will have brought to this entirely new creature, its God-like universe identity, in fact guaranteed eternal life, and a powerfully strong classification of the group the new creature will be delighted to belong to.

“At that very moment both the former mortal and his or her long-serving Thought Adjuster will have ceased to exist. The ‘God-like Product of their Cooperation’ will live on forever. Adieu.”

Receivers Note: I heard from the Damascus Scribe on January 3, transcribed the transmission on January 9, and added a Message (below) from a dear friend, received just now (January 10, 2013).

George, I had a strange but wonderful experience shortly before waking up from a dream. I don’t even know anymore what it was about, but all of a sudden a very tall eagle stood to the left of me. We were both standing in a room, and she wrapped her right wing right totally around me, as if to protect me. Well, I felt so secure and loved that I stroked her belly just a little bit as I did not want to cross her boundaries. She had her beak right next to my nose and that was ok with me. No idea how long we stood there but the feelings of powerful love were indescribable. Then I woke up… J.

The Benefits of Meditation

Alabama, US of A, January 27, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “The Benefits of Meditation.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “In years gone by, your scientists discovered there to be lots of benefits from regular meditation. Many of these benefits simply arose from calming the whirlpool of thoughts that constantly bother human minds in this age. However, the greatest benefits are obtained by those who come to stillness with the goal of knowing their celestial Father, and finding the path to becoming increasingly more perfect beings.

“Many have been attracted to meditation by the numerous benefits they can obtain. Some even expect to receive riches and material benefits through the practice of stillness. Those who meditate with these selfish motivations deprive themselves of the higher benefits they could obtain. Practicing stillness is simply adoration. It is a transformational process in which a human being surrenders self into the hands of his or her Creator in order to be changed into what the Creator has envisioned for that person.

“Do not practice stillness with the goal of achieving material success. Better yet, forget all expectations when practicing stillness and let the Father assume control, and decide what is best for you. In other words, surrender to His will. At least for a few minutes each day, let the Father’s will be done in your life and you will surely be amazed by the results.

“Human beings enjoy free will. Nobody can be forced to focus his or her mind onto something in particular. However, when by your own will you decide to focus your mind into the Father, He will answer and will provide exactly what you need, since He knows you better than you know yourself. When you tune into the frequency of the Father you are aligning with the primordial force that sustains the universe and with the origin of all life and all wisdom. This action, so apparently simple, will have unbelievable repercussions that will move you closer to your eternal destiny.”
