Here you will find practical advice for enlarging your experience of God in your every-day experience...

In the mortal life, paths of differential conduct are continually opening and closing, and during the times when choice is possible the human personality is constantly deciding between these many courses of action. Temporal volition is linked to time, and it must await the passing of time to find opportunity for expression. Spiritual volition has begun to taste liberation from the fetters of time, having achieved partial escape from time sequence, and that is because spiritual volition is self-identifying with the will of God. ~ The Urantia Book, (118:6.6)

Happy Are the Poor in Spirit

"Happy are the poor in spirit, the humble, for theirs are the treasures of the kingdom of heaven. Happy are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." 

Jesus, The Urantia Book, (140:3.3)

Spiritual Destiny

Spiritual destiny is dependent on faith, love, and devotion to truth — hunger and thirst for righteousness — the wholehearted desire to find God and to be like him.

The Urantia Book, (156:5.7)

Sharing the Inner Life

The doing of the will of God is nothing more or less than an exhibition of creature willingness to share the inner life with God

The Urantia Book, (111:5.1)

Sharing Equally

"It is Godlike to share your life and all that relates thereto on equal terms with the mother partner who so fully shares with you that divine experience of reproducing yourselves in the lives of your children.

Love God More

"You will learn to love your brethren more when you first learn to love their Father in heaven more, and after you have become truly more interested in their welfare in time and in eternity."

Jesus, The Urantia Book, (181:2.5)

Speak To God

"True, you do well to pray when harassed, but you should also be mindful to speak as a son to your Father even when all goes well with your soul."

Jesus, The Urantia Book, (146:2.12)

Led to Love God

Many souls can best be led to love the unseen God by being first taught to love their brethren whom they can see.

The Urantia Book, (155:3.4)

Worship Only God

One believes truth, admires beauty, and reverences goodness, but does not worship them; such an attitude of saving faith is centered on God alone, who is all of these personified and infinitely more. 

The Urantia Book, (101:8.1)

Why We Worship

We worship God, first, because he is, then, because he is in us, and last, because we are in him. 

The Urantia Book, (16:9.14)

As You Think

If you regard iniquity in your heart, the Lord will not hear you; if you sin against God, you also wrong your own soul. ... As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.

Your Thoughts

It is your thoughts, not your feelings, that lead you Godward. 

The Urantia Book, (101:1.3)

Rest For Your Soul
