Hello, In my life I've not had much success with goals directing my thoughts and actions, whether material goals or spiritual ones. In the past I've written lists of goals and made New Year's resolutions but they're soon forgotten in the flow of daily life. I know that goals are valuable and meaning...

Greetings to All... Continuing with the theme of giving thanks and developing a spiritual focus to both our inner and outer lives, in this season of Thanksgiving and the coming New Year, we want to invite all Forum members - and hopefully those of you who are new to our Forum - to give some thought ...

This is a great idea and an excellent opportunity so thank you MaryJo for getting it off of the ground. I don't think I've ever actually sat down and given thought to what I'm truly thankful for until now. If this were a routine activity for me my list would be shorter, but I think I have a lot of c...

"Tell no man" -- and yet, in every instance the Apostles and those who'd been cured or had met Jesus disregarded his admonition. I wonder if there were repercussions from not heeding such a request.

It would be nice if that were the case but I don't think so. In its 75 year history perhaps a bit more than a million books have been distributed world-wide to this date. I believe that most go unread... disinterest, too big, too complex, too mysterious, doesn't appear to support one's present relig...

The total solar eclipse will only be seen in the USA. It will be night time for half of the planet during the time the eclipse is visible here so most of the world won't even be aware it's happening. So, is the USA so special that major spiritual events will be initiated across the planet? Is the nu...

Thank you Jim, this is a meaningful opportunity. I've taken the survey.

So many discussions devolve into bickering, pettiness, disparagement of character and personality, this one being yet another example of that. Our lack of objectivity shows how much growing up we have to do spiritually in order to exhibit fruits of the spirit rather than bellicose animal natures. In...

I have been writing computer programs for nearly 50 years so I have a good amount of experience in "debugging", correcting problems in programs that aren't producing the desired results. This can sometimes be satisfying and sometimes frustrating. This week I was faced with a very frustrati...

Thanks Jim, it's good to know you better. In the past I've opened up a little about myself and have had it thrown back at me so although it's good to have a better understanding of one another there are those with axes to grind, so it's good to be cautious and not reveal too much personal informatio...

Hello JWS3Sons, This is an interesting juxtaposition of two quotes. Considering them both, I would interpret them as relating to separate circumstances of the human condition. 109:2.0 describes the qualities of self-acting Adjusters. Like typical Adjusters, self-actuating Adjusters are concerned wit...

This sounds too much like conspiracy theory musings. TUB contains a considerable amount of information about climate change -- the climate warms and it cools. The poles may have ice or they may not. It's certainly inconvenient to us humans, but that's the way global climate works. The climate will o...

It's good to be aware of what the future brings. That gives us a sense of hope, especially when world situations appear bleak and chaotic, as are often the case today. But because of TUB we can look toward and anticipate the future with optimism, we can live joyful and fulfilling lives in the midst ...

The time has come to cease bashing one another over the heads with books. Nothing productive is coming of this discussion. It can always begin as a meaningful exercise, learning, practicing how to promote the teachings of Jesus when confronted with arguments from religionists of tradition who condem...

Diego, The Urantia Book does not claim to be extra-Biblical -- it is extra-Biblical. If you choose to believe the Bible and to align your beliefs with Church doctrine, that's okay. Despite what it might seem like here, for the most part Urantia Book students are content with believers believing, whe...
