Having read the text multiple times, I "use" the UB as a bu11$hit barometer for everyday life. I listen (sequentially) to the text in my car as I drive to work and whatever I have heard that morning often colors my thoughts throughout the day. I never read anymore, and living in the Deep S...

Good Morning: One of the main reasons I believe (mostly) in this book is that the Authors are so honest in admitting that there are many, many things which they do not know. I have always rejected flatly ANYONE who says that ANY DOCUMENT is the inerrant word of Deity. This includes the UB. Was the b...

Fisherman... What up Dude! Welcome to the sandbox. My preferred way of reading is not reading at all... I have the UB on flash drive and listen to it on the way to work. Admittedly one can not fully concentrate but it seeps in, little by little.
Have a great day!

I find humor in myself when I contemplate the teachings. My animal fears, my spiritual arrogance, my petty resentments: all in the face of a limitless future of perfection attainment. How little these things are, these things which take up so much of my precious time here on this amazing yet so mess...

Hi Van: GREAT TOPIC!!!!!!! OK, I am really concerned with spiritual pride... mine, that is. It is one of the things about myself which scares me the most. I cannot speak for anyone else here, but I KNOW I catch myself all the time thinking how "enlightened" I am compared with the (fill in ...

Squabbling Squabble: verb squabbled; squabbling\ ˈskwä-b(ə-)liŋ \ Definition of squabble: to quarrel noisily and usually over petty matters Apparently in the matters of the FER, squabbling is currently the norm, at least in this forum, to engage in much squabbling, much to the dismay of those who ar...

I too am prayer deficient. I remember the words of the Authors… pray for values, not things. When I look out on the world and see so much awful stuff, then see folks praying for material things, I shrug and go my way. When I pray, its usually at a time of crisis, and for something (like someone clos...

I have to agree. I rarely come bye here anymore because every discussion I am interested in seems to degrade into this childish name calling, all in the name of the Master too, I suppose.

Does the UB have its own culture… I say YES, but with qualifications. With less than 100 years under its belt, the planetary spiritual awakening associated with the Book is still in its infancy. So in many respects, a real “culture” as defined by social norms, is still unborn. But a real CULTURE, as...

Amazing topic! Thanks to all who have taken part. Here is the American Deep South, while nothing is banned, the prudent often hold their tongues in order to live peaceably with their fellows. Espousing extremist Christian positions is in vogue in many of the locals I frequent, and the presentation o...

HI WILLIAM! My thoughts on this are that: YES, there is definitely thought crime as taught in the Book. The Authors are very specific that the indwelling Adjuster suffers thru our thoughts of evil and sin. And flagrant lust is, in my opinion, one of those evils. That being said, step back and realiz...

Hi William! Welcome to out little dysfunctional family. We are glad you are here. Yeah, we've all, (well most of us anyways) tried singing the praises of the Book from the rooftops. Most of us have the scars from trying that route. I have found that living the life which the text teaches us to live ...
