Greetings, Many years ago, I wondered about faith/belief and truth/lies and how they relate. I did not consider them as polar opposites, rather as x and y axis' on a coordinate system. Quadrant I was a strait gate (so to speak) where one had managed to move in faith and truth. Quadrant II was belief...

Greetings, Church attendance is a personal choice. But the reasons for going may be helpful in decision making. I found looking for truth in churches frustrating because of the mixture of truth and error preached there. The good thing is that the truth may be discovered by the sincere searcher who s...

Greetings, I think I read that personalities on higher spiritual planes are aware of how ridiculous we lower will-creatures are. I guess we mostly live in ignorance, and, our own self-awareness is incomplete. I have to laugh at the antics of toddlers as they explore their surroundings; maybe since t...

Is choosing to do nothing, but perhaps to wait, a way to display love and to serve others? Or does choosing to do nothing only imply a limited response- ability? At the intersections of rebellion and default (scientific/causation), one may recognize concepts of right and wrong (moral/duty) and begin...

Greetings mortal ascenders, Presently, male or female, we are all Father finders. If I suggested a sexual identity for each of us, spiritually, wouldn't we all be female recipients of a Father's impregnation by a fragment of Himself? (that is if we believed God was male). Isn't sexual identity limit...

Greetings, Mankind has been recipients of pieces of a cosmic puzzle. Each generation seems to make its' own picture from the pieces it has found. Frequently, the puzzle is put together with many errors. I once believed/thought that the Most Highs, the Ancient of Days, and other biblical descriptions...

Greetings Larry, Sorry if I wasn't clear. I intended to say the movie's use of inaudible communications with children reminded me (metaphorically) that our Father Fragments, Thought Adjusters, are within us to bring us to an increasing knowing and following of Him. From my personal experience, I und...

Greetings again, I don't know why, but, I have found Knowing quite thought provoking. Last night I had several ideas that sought my attention. The first was why just remove the children to a safe place where a "Tree of Life" was planted. I thought this was not a new plan. All the offspring...

Greetings, There is a song on a TV syfy show, Firefly, that I recently saw; it says, " You can burn my land and boil my sea, but you can't take the space from me". It made me think of one of TUB's senarios for the end of a planet. TUB also indicates a plan for the removal of will creatures...

Greetings, When I was recently praying for Joe (and Tramp) I considered God's will, and, I thought TUB perspective is the will of God is that we come to Him. I wondered about the individual experiential process we each follow. Since observations of, and interactions with, these, our brothers' lives ...

Greetings Dave, Larry wrote: "What was it that Jesus said to his mixed audiences of wanderers, families, youths, professional people, herders, fishermen, laborers, lawyers, soldiers"? I assume what Jesus said is we are all siblings by faith in our Heavenly Father. I have read the Book of M...

I just finished the book. And I have to agree with Mack's message to Willie (and to each of us) from God.

"God is really fond of you".

And from TUB, "The universe is truly a friendly place".

Debbie, How often I have begun a note to you knowing of your distress. But, how to help? There ARE answers to our human prayers, but often the answer is, “Not now” or “Wait”. I wonder if we don't live in a world of too much impatience and those of us with it have more to learn. One of my greatest fr...

Greetings Chris, Does dissent have any particular value? Or is it a precursor to something of value? What escapes some individuals is children should cease practicing sibling rivalry at some point in their LIFE. I was first exposed to this idea in reading the biblical Old Testament. Jacob and Esau w...

Greetings Rick and all, How interesting! When I read your posts today I thought I had just read your page 47 reference in PART III somewhere, perhaps Paper 114. Then I read your post reference on page1488 which included, “There is no such thing as a “chosen people”. The rule of the Most Highs...” Da...
