Dear Will, The fact that you are already aware of the Father within and with our Creator Son shows that you are headed in the right direction. What you may not be aware of is that your intent is very important to the Eternal Father. Whatever you lack in application, the Father sees your intent and H...

Dear Sisak, Jesus was just making it plain that despite praying in a selfish fashion, mankind would receive an altruistic answer from the Father. Prayer was often regarded as some kind of magic elixir. You know that Jesus said that 'whatever it is that you ask in my name shall become so.' But this s...

Dear Nicki, The Father, Eternal Son and Infinite spirit never had a beginning. No matter how far you look in to the eternal past they were there. They were alive. The contributors of the fifth epochal revelation had to come up with a way that finite beings could understand infinite beings. So, they ...

Dear Friends, The Eternal One loves His mortal children so much that He sends a piece of Himself to live in the minds and hearts of His children. What are these Father fragments teaching us? Well, if the Father was filled with arrogance and felt superior-minded then we would learn that lesson. Of al...

Here is one definition of humility: Humility (adjectival form: humble) is the quality of being modest, reverential, even politely submissive, and never being arrogant, contemptuous, rude or even self-abasing. Humility, in various interpretations, is widely seen as a virtue in many religious and phil...

Dear Erin, While we live here on the earth it will be impossible to verify scientifically that there is an Eternal One responsible for our existence. Some of the posters have written about faith, that we need to have faith that at the center of all things there is an Eternal One. Faith simply means ...

Dear Korzen, They did not intervene because if they did, there would not be free will. Also, when we are tested we make a decision whether or not the Father's will is the best way or not. Every creature and every celestial can show through their actions, which side they are on. Note what the final f...

Dear Korzen, Everyone is given a free will by the First Source and Center. It is up to each one to decide whether or not they will voluntarily choose to do the Father's will. When we consider the fact that the Eternal Father has existed for all eternity it makes sense for us to use our own free will...

Dear azure sky, There are also instances where a surviving soul may choose to reject the ascendant career. That person chooses personality extinction. There are some humans that do not qualify for survival due to their actions, but I know it is relatively rare. I can't yet find the quote dealing wit...

Dear azure sky, This is what the Urantia book further states regarding personality survival: 1. Spiritual (soul) death. If and when mortal man has finally rejected survival, when he has been pronounced spiritually insolvent, morontially bankrupt, in the conjoint opinion of the Adjuster and the survi...

Dear azure sky, Personality extinction comes about as a result of a "conscious" effort to align oneself against the government of the Eternal God. Of course, you and I are under the jurisdiction of the universe of Nebadon with Christ Michael as its master sovereign. He earned that master s...

Dear Dianne, I have no doubt that your Destiny Guardians are trying to get your attention. We each have a seraphic pair that guides us in this life. Not only that, but we each have a fragment of the Eternal Father that dwells in our minds. The Eternal Father has chosen to contact his finite children...

Dear Jimmy, Here is the appropriate quote from the UB. 53:2.3 No one ever suggested rebellion to Lucifer. The idea of self-assertion in opposition to the will of Michael and to the plans of the Universal Father, as they are represented in Michael, had its origin in his own mind. His relations with t...

Dear Jimmy, The UB gives the dimensions of our superuniverse Orvonton. The only problem is that there are so many interpretations to the dimensions that it is anyone's guess what the actual dimensions are or that is, how that should be interpreted. The Milky Way is about 100,000 light years across. ...

My Dear Friend, I wrote this a few days ago. The message is powerful because if we can learn to love in a hostile environment, in an environment of suffering, then we will become like the Father. There is a reason for all the suffering on this planet. If we see the big picture we will not be filled ...
