Maybe you will never see that person again during this lifetime, but then how do you prepare for a reconciliation? That's a really good question. Do you think there should be a willingness to accept responsibility for one's own wrongdoing before attempting reconciliation? And once responsibility is...

I wonder why you continue here in an argumentative mode?


We've been having a delightful conversation without any evidence whatsoever of argumentation from either of us. Who is arguing?

That is what I worry about for everyone who lives with me on this planet. What if you realise that you CAN become a finalitor, and yet in that moment you said "oh well that will havepen when I am a morontial spirit of the Edentia spheres". NOO!!!!! You should become a fused mortal finalit...

Okay so you are saying that free will is a fact of creaturehood, of being parented by the first source and center, who is the universal father of every spirit. But if you believe that it is a choice of the Universal Father to have sent Thought Adjusters to the nucleus of every human mind, then my o...

Okay, maybe if I worship God, I can consecrate my choice, to accept what choices I will also make, through the inleading of one's Thought Adjuster hopefully as a morontial progressor. That as an aspect of creature prerogative of this notion you call free will, if I have the ability to completely de...

Ah Katro I am really digging myself deep trying to explain 200 times what I meant. Sorry to put you through it again. Do you agree that the Universal Father has free will? Yes. The First Source and Center, or Universal Father, is the Volitional Absolute. (74.1) 6:1.2 The First Source and Center is ...

Free will is a postulate that stems from the Declaration of Liberty, circa 500,000 B.C.E., an entitlement. I've been struggling to understand what you mean by this. Are you referring to the selfish, "self-motivated" and false liberty of "unbridled self-will" as mentioned below? ...

Continuing on the idea of selflessness. It seems to me in the references below Jesus is drawing a clear distinction between selfishness and unselfishness in his comments about the parable of the talents. Unselfishness is about giving back, about giving the “truth of heaven” which also increases the ...

personally - yes time-space human body ok we have it - I'm wondering if you've had a chance to read this reference yet. The creative imagination of the human mind apparently is not time-bound. It even says that time is not a genetic quality of mind. That's pretty interesting, isn't it? (135.4) 12:5...

Could it be my thought adjuster at work...? Yes, and more. Our entire mind is designed to discover these things, beginning with adjutant ministry. Recognition of truth is the ministry of the Spirit of Truth along with the Thought Adjuster, Holy Spirit and her cosmic mind reality reflexes. They func...

That is surprising and very interesting. So little of the Architects of the Master Universe is mentioned by the authors. I had previously imagined their domain was primarily physical. I counted over three dozen mentions of the Master Architects and came across one that I found rather interesting. T...

ok so as now in the human body - have Soul-Spirit-Thought Adjuster from the Universal Father - ok ok so we have time and space as mortal beings - but we also have the Soul/Spirit/Thought Adjuster from the perfect being - soooo - to me this would at least say we do have some of that perfection in us...

I have not discovered the book to say that those created in time will ever transcend time....time is our gift and it will never end....the eternal adventure of discovery, experience, progress, and expression!!" I think transcending time and space is the goal. (1096.3) 100:2.6 The goal of human...
