I am sure i am not the only person that has spent waking hours at night thinking of how we can change the world to be come a better place, How we could help bring about the possible Era of Light and Life. The old saying 'Change must come from with-in" has always been a staple of wisdom. Many of...

Yes Slyde,
For those of us 50 + years we have seen many Cultist groups come and go.
We have the experience to know it is a part of this world and we have to be patient as this young planet go though the many growing pains to be come Mature enough to stop acting out such foolishness.

If we look at World History, Why would we think our U.B. would be any different that any others. Christianity took a very long time to take hold, and those that believed in the early days after Christ ascended were killed and fed to the Lions, tortured and publicly humiliated. Same with many other n...

Unfortunately according to Gabriel... He is the source here on Earth, his camps are full of followers that have given up every thing to be bound to his every whim. So very sad.

There is a lot of evidence out there to suggest that the real us is not our Body's, or the physical Brain, but if you will lets say we are a cohesive energy substance that is held in place by the Human Body and our thoughts as well as T.A. hover at the top of our form. In another post i spoke of tho...

Just a little insight for those that think the U.B. can't be touch by mis-understanding or corrupt influence. I just found out that Gabriel of Sadon's Son is a Speaker at the IUA this year, that blow me away, to think some one that is so far off the track of what the U.B. is about, being able to spe...

It is interesting from the Psychology of the thing. Any one that has gone through any therapy will agree that we have many traits that are evidence of the parents that raised us or even the strong environments we were raised in. Fears, habits, ticks, speech, style, attitudes whether positive or nega...

Has any one read Marianne Williamson book " Divine Compensation " I am not a follower of A Course in Miracles, but she has some great insights and i believe much that she talks about fit the U.B. In her Divine Compensation she says in us is a plan for us to succeed, but we first have to re...

Do you think the concept of a Hell serve any true purpose today? Obviously it is so ingrained into many traditions that it will be a long time before it can be rationally and logically removed. We still live in a world dominated by superstitions, where the enlightened are the few and easy targets fo...

Is it fair to say that in some future time our science will find that what they thought was Black-wholes were all along Dark-matter? It seems logical to me because the gravity these spheres have to hold the universe together is able to pull light in to them, thus giving our science the miss-understa...

event though i did not find the quote from the U.B. i was hoping to find, I think we have a conclusion here. That being that Hell by any name was a creation of man and not a real place where bad people go after death. Seeing the evidence of historical fact man had plenty of life surroundings to draw...

In response to your post kecoverz as it may apply to the topic: Walking in this world knowing God is a reality with you, as present and active as the air that surrounds you and breath you take, Give one the ability to live with out worry or care. But a mind would not be unconscious of the unpleasant...

I have been having a discussion with my Brother in-law about Hell, He is wanting to become a preacher, and is very active in his Non-Denominational Church. He has gone to a Christian Collage for his studies, and has a line of research to pull from on this subject. So i attempted to refer to some Gre...
