Cycles of Life

Michigan, US of A, June 24, 2012.
Teacher Ophelius.
Subject: “Cycles of Life.”

Received by Chris.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today we would like to talk about the Cycles of Life as this pertains to the individual, the soul and its progression through the seven psychic circles of human personality potential. The Cycles of Life are those periods of time on the planet of nativity where the individual progresses in many ways and embraces change in values, ideals, activities, maturity, relationships, and beliefs. For some, the change may be hardly noticeable where there is little progression, but in others, the change is perceptible and sometimes consciously acknowledged, especially when it pertains to spiritual growth.

“Most of you can look back on your life and recognize these ‘ages’ of relevancy – times when you can clearly see how far you have come, the circle of friends there were at that time, change in your appearance, your attitudes and opinions about social norms and your acceptance of new ideals. This progression, or movement through life, is the result of your free will and your acceptance and adherence, or your rejection of, the ideal life plan as compiled by your Thought Adjuster prior to your indwelling and made available to you in the form of opportunities and relationship interactions.

For you students on the path there is a markedly noticeable change taking place in the human personality as you become more spiritually aware and seek and accept greater truths while at the same time shedding more of your social programming. When you become conscious of this ‘shift’ in spiritual awareness, you have achieved a greater degree of Adjuster compliance with the ideal life plan and the ‘atunement’ of your mind to follow the leadings of the Father’s Presence.

“All these changes in your life that you are moving through are the acclimations or orientations for the ascension – the path to perfection. You may correctly say that you are more perfect today than you were yesterday. The more ‘willing’ you are to align your will with the Creator’s will, the more rapid is the rate of change and your movement through the Seven Psychic Circles of human personality potential.

“Starting at the seventh circle and moving inward toward the first, the attainment of the third circle signifies that you are well on your way to rapid growth having now been assigned a personal seraphic guardian (a Destiny Guardian) to assist the Thought Adjuster in the coordination and stimulation of circle making decisions that foster real soul growth.

“Blessed are you, my friends, being aware of these growth cycles and have the opportunity to progress at an exponential rate. The key now is to become increasingly more aware of your Adjuster’s presence and your spiritual nature. For many of you, the time prompts and other synchronicities are your reminder of this accelerated growth and your relationship with deity as you live and experience life in the creation as sons and daughters of the Most High God.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Outlines of Truth

Chicago, US of A, May 21, 2012.
Life Carrier Orion.
Subject: “Outlines of Truth”

Received by Valdir Soares.

Orion: “We are called Life Carriers. One would assume that being able to manipulate the very elements of which life is composed, would make us inherently and deeply knowledgeable about the mysteries of the Universes. Such an assumption would be right in the sense that we know things which Urantians in their present evolutionary state could never even guess at to exist. However, it would be a wrong assumption if you thought us to produce life. We are Life Carriers, not life-producers. We understand life’s constitution and we are able to manipulate, assemble, improve and even carry along its basic elements. However, we cannot by ourselves bring life itself to fruition. This is exclusive right of the Gods, through the Michael Sons. We are only instruments, their associates participating in their function of spreading life in their creations.

“One must be very humble when seeking Truth. The first danger to avoid is the natural inclination we creatures have to ‘fabricate’ truth, when faced with questions whose answers are beyond our capacity to understand. On our search for truth, we must first accept that any truth we may find is a provisional one or, at its best, an outline of Truth, never Truth itself, because Truth itself is the essence of God, and no creature may claim having access to such supernal knowledge. Capacities are enablement and at the same time limitations: one quarter can never contain a gallon. God is not in hiding and there is not a secret He fears to reveal to us; rather, He wants us know Him ever more personally. However, the finite will never comprehend the infinite – that is a fact.

“This humble attitude should also govern our relationship with others. When our Sovereign was on Urantia, He said: ‘Judge not lest you be judged.’ Judgment presumes possession of superior knowledge and ability compared to others. Truth is not only transcendental, dynamic and ultimate; at the creature level it is also communitarian, meaning, we all share its realities and benefits. Your personal truth is not isolated from other people's truths, rather, they are dependent on each other, and considering others as valuable as yourself is to reach a larger understanding of Truth itself. All the advancements we Life Carriers have build up in the life-patterns of Nebadon, are the product of constant research, not only by our local corps but those units from all over Orvonton. Cooperation and sharing is essential to progress. Love and truth must increasingly spread on your world so their ‘contagious’ power will purify all.

“All we do is outline Truth, discover its emerging new facets, whilst never being able to comprehend its essence or the entire extension of it. Such a dynamic state is part of the infinite nature of Truth and it keeps our interest and wonder fired up for the everlasting circles of eternity. I am a Life Carrier, your companion on this sphere from long, long ago. I look forward to frequently sharing with you these short but valuable lessons for this world, which we Life Carriers care so much about.”

A Lesson on Wisdom

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

Received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Today, let us learn something new about wisdom. To acquire wisdom may sound like so very simple a project. However, in reality to apply all your learned experiences slowly and imperceptibly into a better behavior is difficult. For long, your impulses caused you to react instead of to act. There exist an ocean of difference between known facts and experiential knowledge. The latter is acquired through trial and error, and wisdom grows by your increasingly appreciating the difference. It would be an easy life in which you would, in every way, and at all times, just know the proper thing to do, but then you would have a total lack of experiential knowledge. For this reason tiny infants start their mortal life lacking all wisdom. They must build this up throughout the maturing process, which is a life-long happening. Indeed, one never stops to learn.

“Even from birth children soon learn whether their surroundings are loving or cold and distant. They also have to learn patience, as this is a most needed and important acquirement in life. Instant gratification does not teach one the wisdom one needs, except perhaps through the mistakes one makes to grasp how not to repeat a mistake. Thus, one may instead learn to persevere, and make the best of any situation. And this brings us to perseverance which is also needed to acquire wisdom. It is often obvious in a painful and slow ‘awakening’ that things could have been done differently, and so wisdom is acquired through experiencing situations which may result in costly ramifications. Such troubling outcomes will perhaps build on previous experiences and so wisdom is garnered, slowly, and at times painfully.

“The mental and emotional costs of gaining wisdom need to be balanced by spiritual growth; otherwise this process is thrown out of balance. Sooner or later, something will happen which will cause this unbalance. Some humans are ‘hauled up short’ by some calamity or other, which serves as a wake-up call. Others watch those near and dear to them, through terrible suffering and wonder why, and ask what could be the sense of such distress. Some after their experience, or during their suffering, start to wonder if perhaps there is a better way. Every one gets their individual wake-up call to the real reason of being alive, why they are here, and where they are going. It is up to each individual to take note, and to intelligently follow up on this.

“All His children have a chance to bond with their Creator God, for no creature in all of our universes is a cosmic orphan, or cosmic accident. People may cause accidents, but the Creator does not. This needs to be clearly understood. There is great wisdom in the fact that God gave all humankind free will to choose, and to make their decisions, for this is the only way in which you can garner wisdom. You are starting out on the bottom of the evolutionary scale with the capacity for future worship and wisdom. Animals lack these two capacities, so you are a favored species to be evolving towards perfection. Each mortal garners his or her own wisdom in the fabric of life, and no one ought to be despised for being slow or different, as it still adds up to the one thing – experiential wisdom.”

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.”
