Jesus prepared his service to the indwelling Adjuster, and now the prerogatives of the Creator Son have been fully relinquished to the Personalized Adjuster of Nebadon. The question, then becomes for the average individual to obtain cosmic citizenship, how can the actual rulership of that "nont...

Is beauty solely experienced by personality? If that is not necessarily the case one might consider that the Unqualified Absolute may express itself to a faith son. Or possibly some derived entity working on behalf of the Unqualified Absolute. I think that before you attempt to identify beings or f...

"Your wish", the terminology presented to us from the midwayer commission. This shows one possible perspective that an Adjuster would regard towards the human individual. How does "supreme desire" of Jesus relate to what the Personalized Adjuster of Nebadon called Jesus' "wi...

And like truth and goodness isn't beauty's source greater than self but still a subjective experience of personal meaning and value?


The source of beauty is not subjective.

Okay... Experiential Wisdom: A distinction I think between perfecting experiential beings in time and perfect existential beings are that perfect existential beings do not sin or commit errors - they are without evil or sin. So perfect experiential beings benefit from experience but are also withou...

My claim is that in my experiences: the Spirit of Truth helps my personal moral recognition of duty . If I can hear the needs of my brothers and sisters properly, I will know what I must do, in order to help their families. I do not seek to give voice to the Spirit of Truth, or to embody or express ...

Who reviews the honesty of the public debate, is the ones who actually hear the needs of the people growing up on this planet. When people search for the truth on the internet, even though they do not always find it, the truth is there in the meaning phrase of their entries. Although one must infer ...

So I wonder then if the other Paradise Sons, Avonals and Daynals, share this perfection with the Creator Sons? A distinction I think between perfecting experiential beings in time and perfect existential beings are that perfect existential beings do not sin or commit errors - they are without evil ...

I've come the realisation why it 's so difficult; it 's because spirit is so full of love, whereas on the other hand, not only is the animal nature selfish and self preserving, but the spirit/soul also depends upon it as a vehicle! So although it is trying to steer us Godward, it is limited by the ...

Evolution can be seen experiencially, "as an eventuation", even though the process of Life seems impossibly elongated. If Life is considered as a Being, and therefore All Forms of Life have some Part of that Being. Then, as the Life Carrier said, the Emergence of Life from (1) its inherenc...

Master Spirit Seven and Master Son are different, because Master Son implies the sovereignty of Nebadon, the time-sovereignty of Michael the Creator Son throughout Nebadon, and the space-sovereignty of his counterpart, the Divine Minister of Salvington. But can you wholly disregard that Michael the ...

It is that: even though every man's approach to universal truth might be different, regarding individuality and circumstance, it may be true that each man has the pursuit of universal truth as a goal ...

William Sadler seems like the most likely candidate of human authorship, if this book was written according to the theory, held by the author of the article, so too Freud. But in the auspices of continuity, the midwayer commission hinged the narrative of the fourth book to the common sources of the ...

The pleasures, or the blessings, of the Central Universe come after the adequate functioning of faith. One should save the treasures of human experience, stow them away in Havona. By thinking you are able to steer others' hearts who have already carved their viewpoints, you are sowing your truth on ...
