Is there a book or pamphlet by a Urantian on mysticism, spirituality, or contemplative prayer? I'd be interested in something that integrates the Urantia Book with the Gospel of Thomas or some other ancient spiritual texts.

About What The UB Has to say On Jesus-style meditation

Meditation in The Urantia Book

(Jesus-style meditation)

by Peter Holley

Words Change Their Meaning

The URANTIA Book tells us that Jesus meditated – a lot! What it doesn’t say is that the word “meditation” has evolved away from its original meaning during the years following the revelation’s final inditing in the mid 1930s. Such evolution of words was, of course, anticipated by the revelators, who tell us that the expression of religion “must be restated every time the dictionary of human language is revised” (1). Likewise the meaning of each affected teaching needs to be renewed when necessary.

Quote:
Spirituality becomes at once the indicator of one's nearness to God and the measure of one's usefulness to fellow beings. Spirituality enhances the ability to discover beauty in things, recognize truth in meanings, and discover goodness in values. Spiritual development is determined by capacity therefor and is directly proportional to the elimination of the selfish qualities of love


Quote:
Actual spiritual status is the measure of Deity attainment, Adjuster attunement. The achievement of finality of spirituality is equivalent to the attainment of the maximum of reality, the maximum of Godlikeness. Eternal life is the endless quest for infinite values. ~ The Urantia Book, (100:2.4)

Character of torchbearers.
Social inheritance enables man to stand on the shoulders of all who have preceded him, and who have contributed aught to the sum of culture and knowledge. In this work of passing on the cultural torch to the next generation, the home will ever be the basic institution. The play and social life comes next, with the school last but equally indispensable in a complex and highly organized society.

That is a beautiful (and thought-provoking) piece of art, Coop.
Thank you so much (I'm going to order a print...right now).
