Hope for Peace

Chicago US of A, October 15, 2012.
Midwayer Messenger Sharmon.
Subject: “Hope for Peace.”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Sharmon: “Yes, my dear, if you had lived for tens of millennia and had seen all the conflict on this planet, you probably would be doubtful about there being any hope for peace on our beloved Urantia. However, like you, I too believe in the final triumph of the will of the Father. Therefore, I too will say that there is hope for harmony on our planet. It is useless to continue to blame this lack of peace on the sins of Lucifer, Caligastia, or on the default of Adam and Eve. Their folly and error indeed handicapped you from normal planetary development, but it also blessed you with the supernal bestowal of our Creator Son, Christ Michael, which made Urantia so special in all Nebadon. In fact, because of this bestowal, the benefits accrued to humans on this planet have surpassed by great measure the losses blamed on the Lucifer Rebellion. Yes, where sin abounded, mercy and love abounded in greater measure’.

“You asked me to help you write a message encouraging people to hope for Peace on Urantia. Simply pacifist arguments will not do it. True, mutual understanding, fierce commitment to dialogue, and a willingness to be condescending are keys for reaching peace among nations. However, only the Brotherhood of Men will bring Peace on Earth, and it will only become a reality when most men and women on Urantia realize the Fatherhood of God in common. As long as individuals see any stranger as an enemy, when religions will kill for their dogmas, and nations will seek supremacy. ‘Peace on earth’ will remain mere words in songs, poetry and fables.

“Peace must start with the individual. First, you pacify yourself by reconciling, as well as you can, the two opposite natures of animal and spiritual that is in you. Evolutionary religions will tell you it is impossible, yet if that were so, that most-beautifully balanced personality of Jesus of Nazareth could never have been expressed on Urantia. His life is proof that you, too, can balance these opposing natures. When the individual finds inner peace – which cannot be attained without doing the will of God – it will be easier for mankind to abandon this foolish belligerence towards fellow human beings, by shielding the self against the hatred of others through a loving and understanding attitude.

“If only your moral status could advance as fast as your technological achievements! Although you left the moral-spiritual lethargy of the Middle Ages behind, you still have much progress to achieve to be worthy of earning the status of being a ‘civilized race’. Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts. It takes time to change yourself, it takes time to convince others, and it takes a long time to change the world. Your advance towards peace is slow indeed, but it is hopefully going in the right direction as long as true religions retain their essential value in your developmental process. Yes, my dear, there is hope for peace on Urantia; but much personal work must be done until this desire starts to become a reality.

“I am Sharmon, your lightning-fast friend from the midway realm. My love is with you ”

Life, Friends and the Divine Framework

Michigan, US of A, November 4, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Life, Friends and the Divine Framework.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “The message for today is about eternal relationships – how they are created and why they are eternal. Many of you have what is referred to as ‘life friends.’ Someone whom you have known for a very long time and who may or may not share your interests, but you have a love for them that is unconditional and no matter how long a period of time goes by between visits, your feelings for them do not change and you are always happy to see them, because they also share that unconditional love for you. There is a mutual bond between each and that bond exists in the superconscious at the soul level of being. Any relationship that has been established at the soul level of being is eternal and those relationships become a part of eternal memory, and you will know and be known throughout your eternal careers by these special life friends.

“Before the Father Fragments (the Thought Adjusters) indwell a human mind they establish what is known as a ‘divine framework.’ In this ‘life plan’ there is a framework that is created by the Thought Adjuster for how the life of the indwelled human will be led – who the parents will be, siblings, what friends that soul will have, and what teachers will come in and out of life to teach lessons. There is also thus created the path of opportunities that will be made available to that soul should the soul decide to take a particular path. Some of this may sound to you like pre-destiny, but I can assure you that you have complete free will to choose the path and what opportunities will become available. You may accept any part or completely reject the path of opportunities – you are in complete control of your destiny.

“The divine framework is unimaginably complex and contains many, many, variants, checkpoints, and alternate paths, yet there is one overall goal for that soul and that is to be led to God knowing and ultimately to fusion with the Adjuster. In the divine framework are these life friends that are to be placed in your path. Both you and your life friend have this common thread in your framework where your paths will cross and both will have opportunities to meet and share a life experience. These friends may only play a very small role in your life, or they may be a part of your everyday life. These friends can also play many roles: Mother, father, sister, brother, husband, wife, aunt, uncle, cousin, co-worker, best friend, lover, or unrelated acquaintances. In any role they are there to stimulate a decision, teach a lesson, share joy or sorrow, and enrich your life experiences in one way or another.

“At some point in your mansion world sojourn, you will have the opportunity to compare the divine framework with your own life as it was lived on the worlds of time and space. This is a time of great learning – to see where you succeeded, where you failed, and what areas of development you still need to work on.

“In any case, it is the unconditional love between souls that often times steers that soul back on track with the divine framework and positions the mind to consider meanings and values that are congruent with the leadings of the Thought Adjusters. To love unconditionally is to be God-like and so there are many opportunities in the divine framework to express this love to those life friends and to help each other to grow and progress toward the ultimate goal – God consciousness and Adjuster atunement.

“Think about those life friends today and how they have influenced and enriched your life. Become aware of all your connections, my friends, and have gratitude for the role they play in your life experiences.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Proper Use of the Mind

Urantia, November 5, 2012.
Teacher: Jesus.
Subject: “Proper Use of the Mind.”

Received by Lytske.

Jesus: “The reason why I want you to use the name Jesus, rather than Michael, is because most people who chance to read this message will identify more with the Man Jesus, rather than with the Ruler of a wonderful and well-ordered universe, who goes by the name of Michael. Please give me your full attention for a short time as I have been following your thoughts about how make proper use of your God-given talents and also how to make the fullest use of your mind whilst still living in the flesh.

“The reason why I desire to ‘jump’ into your thought-stream is because it is extremely important for my human children to become increasingly aware of the workings of their minds. Since you can only think one thought at a time, and since whatever you think about finds its way into the very tissues of your being, you can bring about health or ill-health from anything on your mind, depending on the force or desire behind it.

“The Father has endowed you mortals with free will, so it is entirely up to you to curb the less than wholesome thoughts, lest you bring into existence something you really don’t want. It is ever so that what a man or woman thinks about, will come about. Think healthy thoughts and the whole body benefits, think mundane and ill-conceived thoughts like anger, un-forgiveness or resentment, or any other spiritual poison, and you can harm your body beyond repair.

“Humans are in charge of their own thoughts, no one else is. So I counsel you to become more mindful about the thoughts arising in your mind. Therefore, the most important point I am making is this: Practice an ever increasing present-centered awareness, and when you engage your mind in this, the gathering of new information will become easier. Your memory will also become far more accessible to you, ‘brain fog’ will be lifted, and timely re-call of important matters will be closer at hand.

“‘Sloppy thinking’, out of control, random thoughts, and hasty actions have brought no end of misery to this wonderful planet. Therefore, if each day people would consciously engage in well-directed thoughts, it would bring the mind to more elevated thinking. Such training benefits the entire system as one would truly be on the way to self-mastery, which is a requirement for spiritual progress and which will benefit you all enormously with progress at your next level on the mansion worlds. It is here in your mortal estate where you can make the most progress.

“Think about what this would mean to you individually, to be able with a measure of self-discipline and self-correction and with proper use of your God-given mind, to make your life more joyful. See yourself becoming an island of peace with a closer connection to your Creator, who desires that all his evolving children experience this wonderful connection. It is your choice and free will decision to do so. I leave you with my peace.”

Fathers and Mothers of Humanity

Alabama, US of A, January 20, 2011.
Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Fathers and Mothers of Humanity.”

Received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “‘A kind word dissipates anger.’ These were the words of the Master two thousand years ago and many still don’t practice this technique in diplomacy, or in interpersonal relationships. You know that decisions made in rage are later regretted. You know that many times actions made under the influence of anger make problems bigger than they originally were.

“When will you allow yourselves to understand that each one of you is the parent of the future of your world, and that the children of this planet are your children? The love between siblings may be fractured under the weight of misunderstandings, but an authentic parent’s love is never afflicted by the mistakes of immature little children.

“This is what Michael expects from us – to love each other as God loves us. If you could only grasp the benefits such love would bring to this world! Such love would once and for all end the distrust and artificial separation imposed by groups and nations. A parent of humanity will not let any of her children go hungry.

“This is the challenge of this era. Accept yourselves to be fathers and mothers of humanity, because that is what you really are. What you do today will determine the future of the little ones that will come after you. You have a responsibility for the future, all of you, and this is not something to be taken lightly. May every thought in your mind be pregnant with love, truth, beauty and goodness. This will be the engine that will guide your decisions and actions in this world. This is a call to all. What is in your mind will determine the quality of what manifests in the world. Fill your mind with light, so this light reaches all corners of this planet. Be the change that you want to see, and it will happen.

“Much can be achieved with intelligent cooperation among you, but if this cooperation is also infused with a matching spiritual growth in all the souls involved, true miracles can really come to pass. The actions of an individual always affect the entire group. When all are focused on the task of being better, of finding the Father within your hearts and growing in spirit, a true quantum leap in the progress of humanity will occur, and many of the miseries of this world will vanish in a day's time. It is simply this easy for light and life to arrive on this sphere. It has always been up to you, all of you.”

A Lesson on Balancing

Urantia, November 2, 2012. (date of transcription).
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “A Lesson on Balancing.”

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Let this be a lesson on balancing the emotions. At times this is quite a delicate act as humans are extremely emotional creatures, allowing themselves to be ruled by their emotions, rather than by their common sense. Balancing the emotions is very much connected to self-discipline, and if emotions are not taken in hand at an early age, one can very easily get off track when things don’t go as expected. There needs to be a certain amount of self-restraint for one to not give in to every impulse. It is good to, from time to time, question yourself if there might be an area where you can improve control of the self, especially at times when you feel to be stressed.

“Every effort at achieving self-control is a minor victory, until in every way you are in better control of yourself. Of course, it is not good to lock up your feelings, but there is a great difference between being in total control and letting your feelings run amok. The middle of the road approach tends to work best, and if you find yourself in trying circumstances which tax your patience and emotions, My suggestion to you is to remember to breathe. This buys you time to collect your emotions and gather them up with some deep breaths. Everyone goes through moments of severe stress when it is most inconvenient to ‘let go’, and so you use your self-discipline to stay on top of things.

“A genuine display of emotions is good and is felt in the hearts of others, whilst a fake display of emotions, as in trying to get your own way, is not a sincere way by which to live. The happiest way to live is through sincerity and more sincerity – the honest to goodness and moral way. As humans, you are endowed with the gift of understanding, which ultimately leads to wisdom. Such is the culmination of a life well-lived when in looking back you will have very few regrets about how you lived your life. Life is a balancing act of choices and of decision making. See to it that you always choose for the highest and the best for all, including yourself. It is wise to remember that you all are God’s children, and that one day you will confront yourself to look back and find where you erred, so you can better yourself.

“It is of utmost importance to work on developing a well-balanced spiritual life, so the emotions are steadied in faith and trust and the physical system is at peace, because the inner life is at peace. Be courageous and view yourself under the loupe and try to make amends were you need character improvements. When in doubt, check with Me by turning within into the Silence. Keep a close walk with Me, so life will be easier, and you will be happier as you willingly place yourself under My guidance. Here is were true calm can be found as you daily nourish your inner peace in My Presence. This is were the emotions become balanced. Here is where you find the courage to carry on another day, for wherever you go, I am there, too, so you can call on Me at any time. Please try to make more use of Me; it is why I am here, always pointing out the better way.”
