(598.2) 52:6.7 5. Spiritual insight. The brotherhood of man is, after all, predicated on the recognition of the fatherhood of God. The quickest way to realize the brotherhood of man on Urantia is to effect the spiritual transformation of present-day humanity. The only technique for accelerating the natural trend of social evolution is that of applying spiritual pressure from above, thus augmenting moral insight while enhancing the soul capacity of every mortal to understand and love every other mortal. Mutual understanding and fraternal love are transcendent civilizers and mighty factors in the world-wide realization of the brotherhood of man.

Please, what do they mean by "applying pressure from above"?

Thank you!

I think it means this: first remember that not only do we seek God but also God seeks us. The "pressure" from above/within comes from the Holy Spirit and the 6th and 7th Adjutants, and the angels, and then the Prince and then the Garden, etc. God seeks us out by many efforts. Time and space universe celestials are mostly focused on our ascension and progress. It is just this "reaching down" that is described I believe.

"The only technique for accelerating the natural trend of social evolution ...." I think this means God is much better at finding us than we are of finding Him....without lots of help. Our natural trend is to remain materialistic so we receive much assistance, finally in the form of the Son's Spirit and the TA to really accelerate God finding within.
