i don't try to tell others about the book anymore. At first I thought you are being pessimistic, but then I encountered this in TUB: (1726.2) 155:1.5 “Let me emphatically state this eternal truth: If you, by truth co-ordination, learn to exemplify in your lives this beautiful wholeness of righteous...

Having still read only less than one half of the book - but from all the four parts of it - I am willing to put TUB in a nutshell. Probably could not do that any more after having read all of it, so now's the perfect time. :) What you really need to understand and remember from TUB: God Exists and i...

After having continued reading TUB, I have realized one more reason for seeing TUB as the Truth. I have read a huge amount of books regarding self-realization, self-help and religion. Quite a few of the good ones have been great - in the beginning. Towards the end of the book I have started thinking...

As it happened, a short while after I had written my comment above, I encountered the following passage (emphasis mine): 131:10.2 "The Lord our God is one Lord, and you should love him with all your mind and heart while you do your very best to love all his children as you love yourself. This o...

Hi Amy, boomshuka and Todd, Your experiences as well as other entries I've read on this forum say that our life is not an easy one. Yet, I am happy living in an era when a new revelation has just been given to us. Well, I wasn't actually even born when TUB was first published, but we are still at th...

I quite agree with you both! Colter, what is bothering me especially is that people around me assume that my views are what they used to be earlier. This I feel is untrue and I would like to rectify it. But I just don't find any short way of doing that, and blurting out the whole thing by using a pl...

I've found myself in a strange situation: the fundamentals of my life have been revolutionatized, but I cannot tell others about it. There is no short way to tell others about it without causing big misunderstandings. If I tell them about One God, they'll think I've become a Christian. If I tell the...

I may be a bit premature in writing this, having only read 1/4 to 1/3 of TUB so far. I started reading it with "suspending my disbelief" until I would have read it through. I decided just to read what it says and only after having understood it, I would check whether I consider it the Trut...

Using the search engine on Truthbook.com at http://www.truthbook.com/search/UBParagraphs_VSearchForm.cfm and entering "though adjuster AND mind" Larry Interestingly enough, the first result says "The divine spirit that indwells the mind of man — the thought adjuster." :) Then I ...

34.5.4 When mind is thus endowed with the ministry of the Holy Spirit, it possesses the capacity for (consciously or unconsciously) choosing the spiritual presence of the Universal Father — the Thought Adjuster. But it is not until a bestowal Son has liberated the Spirit of Truth for planetary mini...

Thought Adjusters 8) http://urantiabook.org:5631/query.html?qt=thought+adjusters&col=english&submit=GO%21 For some reason urantiabook.org does not reply at all (timeout). This was already the case when first I tried to access the web site several months ago. I thought the site was closed. C...

. Take a look at Paper 180, Section 5, and all of Paper 194 for enlightenment re the Spirit of Truth. Thanks for the pointers! I read those and got some more understanding. However, it will take some time before I can really understand the roles of each of them. Probably not until morontia life... :)

Larry, Thanks for you answer - but now I am even more confused! Holy Spirit I have heard from in Christian context, but I suppose it is somewhat different in TUB context. Spirit of Truth, what is that? How do they work for us? I haven't been reading TUB in order. I started from the beginning and rea...
