It is interesting to me how each of the 7 Adjutant Mind Spirit and ministry circuits of connection work with the others and upon the others in ways which first deliver the mortal mind connection to the Holy Spirit which begins the evolutionary and personal faith based religious experience of the lowest level of universe personality endowment. Each mind adjutant ministry is a link bound to the others to form human function and connection to the Spirit which completely differentiate the mortal from the animal kingdom of its evolutionary origin.
This integration and coordination of all the Adjutant ministry circuits into a functional whole leads to each of those ministries and circuits to gain forms of function and activation not possible without the totality of all 7 working in harmony! The sum or value or totality and function of the whole is far greater than the sum of the parts. Indeed....each adjutant function is enhanced by the totality of function and connection which delivers experiential wisdom and Divine assurance.
Such a mind can transcend itself and experience revelation and creative thinking and problem solving and develop certainty of what and whom cannot be seen or heard or discovered by the 5 senses - or any number of material senses!! The totality of the connection of the 7 Adjutants reveals a universe reality and aspect of selfhood that is not material and that new connection to the Holy Spirit and the God Fragment and the Spirit of Truth creates whole new paradigms of being and intuition and insight and understanding and faith - all of which is required for Divine Assurance!!
Assurance is evidence of connection and relationship and belonging and the love of the creators for their progeny. This connection and that Divine Assurance we experience and the evolutionary progression of experiential wisdom are the very plan of God and the very purpose of material creation. The gods benefit from the realization of potential and the wisdom only available by experience and perfecting over time by trial and error and freewill choice. Mortals are designed and created to benefit the universe and all beings in the universe of universes by BEING mortal.
Our connection to the Spirit delivers Divine Assurance to verify this connection to the beings so connected. It is as natural as it could possibly be. It is an inherent function of the connection of personality to the source of personality and the mind to the source of mind. It is the connection to Divinity that delivers the Divine Assurance we feel within. And it is that Assurance that leads us to discernment, understanding, courage, knowledge, altruism, worship/assurance, and the integrating power of wisdom!
As we become spiritized and gain experiential wisdom, we begin to become weened from the Adjutant Mind Spirits as we are become more directly connected to the Paradise Spirit ministries of the Trinity and the related gravity circuits of personality, mind, and spirit. Indeed, the Adjutant Spirits ministry does not follow us beyond the grave and into our resurrection. It is our soul and the ministry of the God Fragment/Thought Adjuster that then connects to the direct ministry of the mind, spirit, and personality circuits without the Adjutant circuits influence or connection.
The Adjutants are a ministry bridge which connects the mortal mind to the morontial mind. Both are connected to the Source Spirit ministries so the more material connection of the Adjutants is simply not needed once the material brain ceases to function at death in this life. Or so I understand.
36:5.5 (402.2) We are handicapped for words adequately to designate these seven adjutant mind-spirits. They are ministers of the lower levels of experiential mind, and they may be described, in the order of evolutionary attainment, as follows:
36:5.6 (402.3) 1. The spirit of intuition—quick perception, the primitive physical and inherent reflex instincts, the directional and other self-preservative endowments of all mind creations; the only one of the adjutants to function so largely in the lower orders of animal life and the only one to make extensive functional contact with the nonteachable levels of mechanical mind.
36:5.7 (402.4) 2. The spirit of understanding—the impulse of co-ordination, the spontaneous and apparently automatic association of ideas.
This is the gift of the co-ordination of acquired knowledge,
the phenomenon of quick reasoning
, rapid judgment,
and prompt decision.
36:5.8 (402.5) 3. The spirit of courage—the fidelity endowment—in personal beings, the basis of character acquirement and the intellectual root of moral stamina and spiritual bravery.
When enlightened by facts and inspired by truth, this becomes the secret of the urge of evolutionary ascension by the channels of intelligent and conscientious self-direction.
36:5.9 (402.6) 4. The spirit of knowledge—the curiosity-mother of adventure and discovery,
the scientific spirit; the guide and faithful associate of the spirits of courage and counsel; the urge to direct
the endowments of courage into useful and progressive paths of growth.
36:5.10 (402.7) 5. The spirit of counsel—the social urge, the endowment of species co-operation; the ability of will creatures to harmonize with their fellows; the origin of the gregarious instinct
among the more lowly creatures.
6. The spirit of worship—the religious impulse, the first differential urge separating mind creatures into the two basic classes of mortal existence.
The spirit of worship forever distinguishes the animal of its association from the soulless creatures of mind endowment.
Worship is the badge of spiritual-ascension candidacy.
36:5.12 (402.9) 7. The spirit of wisdom—the inherent tendency of all moral creatures towards orderly and progressive evolutionary advancement.
This is the highest of the adjutants, the spirit co-ordinator and articulator
of the work of all the others. This spirit is the secret of that inborn urge of mind creatures which initiates and maintains the practical and effective program of the ascending scale of existence; that gift of living things which accounts for their inexplicable ability to survive and, in survival, to utilize the co-ordination of all their past experience and present opportunities for the acquisition of all of everything that all of the other six mental ministers can mobilize in the mind of the organism concerned.
Wisdom is the acme of intellectual performance. Wisdom is the goal
of a purely mental and moral existence.
36:5.13 (403.1) The adjutant mind-spirits experientially grow, but they never become personal. They evolve in function, and the function of the first five in the animal orders is to a certain extent essential to the function of all seven as human intellect. This animal relationship makes the adjutants more practically effective as human mind; hence animals are to a certain extent indispensable to man’s intellectual as well as to his physical evolution.
Me here: Progress in the Spirit, religious growth, and experiential wisdom should each and all increase our sense of connection and momentum and assurance of that connection and progressive momentum. Assurance is not merely preliminary nor static. It too grows concurrently with and due to our personal evolutionary and experiential wisdom "which initiates and maintains the practical and effective program of the ascending scale of existence;" and " to utilize the co-ordination of all their past experience and present opportunities for the acquisition of all of everything that all of the other six mental ministers can mobilize in the mind of the organism concerned."
Wisdom initiates and integrates and harmonizes and perpetuates GROWTH and completes and enhances and integrates and harmonizes greater and growing - intuition, understanding, courage, knowledge, counsel, and worship!! The whole improves the functions of the each! This fact and function of our very being delivers Assurance of the Spirit which is the very source of all these characteristics of BEING...and BECOMING.
Assurance is simply the evidence of our connection to the Spirit. An awareness of that connection. An awareness of belonging and being loved and being safe and the eternal nature of that very personal reality.
