Rather than feeling regret that my beloved animal friends will not accompany me on the eternal journey, this knowledge endears them even more to me. It deepens my affection, and my respect, for the ones living with me now. They will survive in my memory, and as part of the "cosmic forces of the...

Hi Rick! It's not surprising that a Melchizedek has insight into the future considering the enormous number of celestial collaborators behind the scenes. His mission in large part was to foster the nearly lost teaching of the One God, and to inspire and teach Abraham to lead his people to a great fu...

For God so loved the world, that he gave his  only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on him should not perish, but have eternal life. ... This reading from John 3:16 is paramount to the beliefs of most Christian denominations. As a youth I embraced it, but even then it was something of a myste...

Without reference checking I'm sure MM went as he came - with a special body designed without a human mother. "Translation" from one realm to another might be accurate, but I'm sure nothing of him or his possessions were left behind for us monkeys to idolize or obsess over. That sound righ...

Glorification of mediocrity Perhaps you don't see it because it is the most insidious. It is the school teacher who gives a barely readable essay an "A". it's the Hollywood movie that glorifies war, makes millions, and wins an Oscar. Allowing mediocrity slows the evolution of our species....

I've been mightily impressed by the global-wide response, largely peaceful, to the murder of George Floyd. It is bringing people of all races, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds together in great numbers to mourn and demand changes. Would this be happening if not for the pandemic? When millions of...

Thanks, Agon! TLhall's post represents the sleepwalkers, the truly unenlightened people caught in a nightmare. We must blame someone! Which bogeyman scares you the most? We don't have time for this anymore. What thoughts and actions do we have that expresses hope, charity, and love? We need to pay a...

So here we are together in a world changing moment, experiencing in our individual and unique ways the events that are transpiring. Has the UB become a source of strength and inspiration for you as it has for me? Feel free to contribute here in ways you are coping with the effects and aftereffects o...

I don't know what I'll do if I finish paper 196 and there is still this lock down/quarantine.

You'll start all over again! O:)

I was just reading this in the section: The Almighty Supreme . A lot to ponder. The purpose behind it is vast! I think I'm beginning to understand, God help me. 116:0.1 (1268.1) IF MAN recognized that his Creators—his immediate supervisors—while being divine were also finite, and that the God of tim...

Rick, I'm unsure about what it means for us that self acting Adjusters are in short supply on our planet. But we all have virgin adjusters. I trust in the Universal Father to provide all the help we need in this time of change. Let's review: Paper 108 - Mission and Ministry of Thought Adjusters 108:...

During my walk this morning my imagination conjured up something that seems too big, and too "simple" to realize and put into action. But here it is anyway. I will be sending this as a letter to the editor of my local newspaper. I welcome all of you to comment, but more importantly, to sha...

I doubt I can persuade you, but I feel you will benefit by separating your political fervor from the content and purpose of the UB. You are righteous in your anger towards a corrupt and inept leader of “the free world,” but are you also self-righteous? I fear you are by the tone of your intolerance ...
