Seraphic Planetary Government:
This is the true beaurocracy of Urantia, but how could a person hope to espouse to actually be aware or know of the edicts that spring forth from this organisation, in conjunction with the Rule of the Most Highs and the Council of (16 of) 24?

The desires and goals of a person are implanted, they are received from out of the Infinite Mind, through the Minds of the Angeln. Inventions, Progressive Ideas, it is said, are given unto the minds of the true servants of Urantia//mankind. How is it that an invention is received?

How can you hope, for instance, to encourage Progressive Dialogue? You can represent your group, as to report the unanimous decisions that were reached in your Executive Meetings, but only the messenger can bring you the accurate decisions of other groups. This messenger must be a Qualified Professional, to the extent that you would either trust his own unique viewpoint or trust the Body of Ordination (such as "Associated Press"). Whether you trust that one, or whether you trust his organisation, this trust is attributed to some type of individuality.

In the Greater-Bodies of the Administration, there is a Federated Structure of OverRulership, such as that the Ancients of Days is several tiers above the Unions of Days, but the overall method of Governance is not altered much in its descension into localities.

If a person is AS REPRESENTATIVE, there is a severe limitation imposed upon his expression of individuality. He is at liberty to give the full-expression of the entire organisation, but if any part of himself goes against the views of his entire organisation, then he is not at liberty to express his own viewpoint, at least during this period of service. He is, in a sense, bound by his vow and by the Will of God. He is bound by duty, and this duty restrains or represses the past-expression, the old habits of that one.

How could you hope for or expect the authentic views of anyone who is bound in their period of expression? How could you hope that an police officer, for one, would truly tell you what he thinks, or if he is telling you the spelling of his legal procedures? My point is that while he is in uniform, you could only hope to receive the latter and expect nothing of the former.

When the police officer goes home, is he changed by the service he provided to the valley of his jurisdiction? Is he becoming more of a police officer at home than his former roles?? When this happens, you can obviously see that what would be the viewpoints of his greater REPRESENTATIVE organisation are taking hold in the realm of his personal, private viewpoints. How are these REPRESENTATIVE viewpoints assimilated into the true beliefs of an individual?

There will come a time when the true scientific precepts merge sublimely with the religious tenets of faith on Urantia. Even now, the illumined postulates of the Urantia Book beg to be tested by the faith-sons of this world. The more success one finds in testing his own theories, the greater the ability one has to employ those beliefs, those theries which have become beliefs by the success of experiment.

Then there is the ultimate paradox of self-expression of the fullness of individual personality. It is that when you think you have something to say, "you will iterate the same thought over and over", and this is an exercise of your own pride and does not benefit others to hear you say them in this manner. But when you have cleared your mind, when you are comepletely at zero with your own thoughts and aspiration, you are readied and centered in your own ability to allow the gifts of true destiny to be outpoured through you, in whatever manner these gifts are expressed.

The contention will arise is that we are seeking to express the mandate of Progress, as it is seen by God the Holy Father on High, or rather In-Center, rather than how we in a limited fashion see our goals and tasks. If you purely disallow the REPRESENTATIVE quality of self-expression, in this group or elsewhere, you are preventing what would be called actual religious discussion, you are making the group into a purely secular function, and thus in the sense mundane.

But if there is the expression of an One Whom is Attuned through the inworkings of the Adjuster, you would ask "is he giving the authentic viewpoint?" or "is this a representative viewpoint sent through God or his Messenger?" and you would not be able to answer that because it is both and not one exclusively. So that you would only tolerate the wholesome messages of authentic-self, I will refrain from the latter.

Sela - who is "we"? And are you saying that you are such a REPRESENTATIVE or that you speak for or represent another such REPRESENTATIVE? Who is the "Messenger" you describe?

Are you also saying that the authors, in their role and by the proscribed constraints, are also less than truthful or forthcoming but are simply mouthpieces of "official" "propaganda"?

I confess my lack of understanding as to your meaning or its context. Perhaps some text might help explain your view more concisely. Thank you.

Brad

Since when did Jesus attempt to destroy someones belief system?

Mr Sela, as your brother, I accept that you believe as you do. Who is ahead of you and who is behind you? The first shall be last and the last shall be first.

Peace to you O:)
