Yes maryjo...there is far more than mercy ministry to consider....there is Divine Assurance and Divine Affection when considering how fairness is administered by the universe creators, rulers, administrators, and the entire celestial family!
28:6.8 [Part I]
The mercy reflectors, with their tertiary associates, engage in numerous superuniverse ministries, including the teaching of the ascending creatures. Among many other things the Significances of Origins teach these ascenders how to apply spirit ethics, and following such training, the Memories of Mercy teach them how to be truly merciful. While the spirit techniques of mercy ministry are beyond your concept, you should even now understand that mercy is a quality of growth. You should realize that there is a great reward of personal satisfaction in being first just, next fair, then patient, then kind.
And then, on that foundation, if you choose and have it in your heart, you can take the next step and really show mercy; but you cannot exhibit mercy in and of itself. These steps must be traversed; otherwise there can be no genuine mercy. There may be patronage, condescension, or charity — even pity — but not mercy. True mercy comes only as the beautiful climax to these preceding adjuncts to group understanding, mutual appreciation, fraternal fellowship, spiritual communion, and divine harmony.*
37:5.9 [Part II]
Whenever fairness and justice require an understanding of how a contemplated policy or procedure would affect the evolutionary races of time, these commissioners are at hand to present their recommendations; they are always present to speak for those who cannot be present to speak for themselves.
40:5.11 [Part II]
The Gods who ordained that mortal man should climb to higher levels of spiritual intelligence through long ages of evolutionary trials and tribulations, take note of his status and needs at every stage of the ascent; and always are they divinely fair and just, even charmingly merciful
, in the final judgments of these struggling mortals of the early days of the evolving races.
Me here: As many quotes on "fair OR fairness" posted above will attest, fairness was a principal teaching of Jesus and an inherent expectation of mortal mind...even and especially the child's mind.
It is unfortunate that a child's mind can be and often is polluted and distorted by unfairness and other negative examples of adults in our life. But never is unfairness experienced by the influence, cause, or effects of creators or rulers or God's will or WAY. Unfairness is a source of suffering. God does not cause suffering.
However, God cannot and will not prevent that suffering which comes from our own free will choice. God may and does give comfort, solace, relief, and remedy to all who suffer by the choices of others, sooner or later, because of the affection God has for all of his beloved children.
It is interesting to consider how many suffer and how much they suffer by choosing and embracing fear, anxiety, depression, negativity, etc. Who can stop such a willful embrace and its consequence? Only the person making that choice. But whether self chosen or imposed upon self, the morontia experience upon the Mansion Worlds shall surely bring great relief from and contrast to ALL sources of such suffering.
We are taught that we must learn to give mercy to truly receive it (not for its inherent offer and availability but to actually embrace it and benefit by it). We are also taught that fairness is similarly reciprocal in nature. Life will never be 'fair' to those who remain unfair to others.
(614.3) 54:1.8 There is no error greater than that species of self-deception which leads intelligent beings to crave the exercise of power over other beings for the purpose of depriving these persons of their natural liberties. The golden rule of human fairness cries out against all such fraud, unfairness, selfishness, and unrighteousness.
Only true and genuine liberty is compatible with the reign of love and the ministry of mercy.
(614.4) 54:1.9 How dare the self-willed creature encroach upon the rights of his fellows in the name of personal liberty when the Supreme Rulers of the universe stand back in merciful respect for these prerogatives of will and potentials of personality! No being, in the exercise of his supposed personal liberty, has a right to deprive any other being of those privileges of existence conferred by the Creators and duly respected by all their loyal associates, subordinates, and subjects.
(614.5) 54:1.10 Evolutionary man may have to contend for his material liberties with tyrants and oppressors on a world of sin and iniquity or during the early times of a primitive evolving sphere, but not so on the morontia worlds or on the spirit spheres.....
Me here: Paper 47, introduced above by maryjo is an excellent read and study about the comfort and joys to be discovered on the Mansion Worlds...no matter our suffering or its causes on the world of our material birth!! We are immediately made welcome and safe and given affection and great kindness. These worlds are nothing like the primitive spheres of the early mortal epochs or those who have suffered from default or rebellion. The contrast will be most profound for us all!
47:3.12 (534.4) As you start out on the first mansion world, one Morontia Companion is assigned to each company of one thousand ascending mortals, but you will encounter larger numbers as you progress through the seven mansion spheres. These beautiful and versatile beings are companionable associates and charming guides.
They are free to accompany individuals or selected groups to any of the transition-culture spheres, including their satellite worlds. They are the excursion guides and leisure associates of all ascending mortals. They often accompany survivor groups on periodic visits to Jerusem, and on any day you are there, you can go to the registry sector of the system capital and meet ascending mortals from all seven of the mansion worlds since they freely journey back and forth between their residential abodes and the system headquarters.
47:4.7 (535.3) Biological deficiencies
were largely made up on the first mansion world. There defects in planetary experiences
pertaining to sex life, family association, and parental function were either corrected or were projected for future rectification
among the Material Son families on Jerusem.
47:4.8 (535.4) Mansonia number two
more specifically provides for the removal of all phases of intellectual conflict and for the cure of all varieties of mental disharmony.
The effort to master the significance of morontia mota, begun on the first mansion world, is here more earnestly continued. The development on mansonia number two compares with the intellectual status of the post-Magisterial Son culture of the ideal evolutionary worlds.
Me here: We do not leave #2 until we are free of all unfairness and the maladies you describe in your original question HM1.
47:5.3 (536.1) Mansonia the third
is a world of great personal and social achievement for all who have not made the equivalent of these circles of culture prior to release from the flesh on the mortal nativity worlds. On this sphere more positive educational work is begun. The training of the first two mansion worlds is mostly of a deficiency nature — negative — in that it has to do with supplementing the experience of the life in the flesh. On this third mansion world the survivors really begin their progressive morontia culture. The chief purpose of this training is to enhance the understanding of the correlation of morontia mota and mortal logic, the co-ordination of morontia mota and human philosophy. Surviving mortals now gain practical insight into true metaphysics. This is the real introduction to the intelligent comprehension of cosmic meanings and universe interrelationships. The culture of the third mansion world partakes of the nature of the postbestowal Son age of a normal inhabited planet.
47:6.3 (536.4) It is during the period of training on world number four
that the ascending mortals are really first introduced to the demands and delights of the true social life of morontia creatures. And it is indeed a new experience for evolutionary creatures to participate in social activities which are predicated neither on personal aggrandizement nor on self-seeking conquest. A new social order is being introduced, one based on the understanding sympathy of mutual appreciation, the unselfish love of mutual service, and the overmastering motivation of the realization of a common and supreme destiny — the Paradise goal of worshipful and divine perfection. Ascenders are all becoming self-conscious of God-knowing, God-revealing, God-seeking, and God-finding.
47:7.5 (537.5) A real birth of cosmic consciousness takes place on mansonia number five.
You are becoming universe minded. This is indeed a time of expanding horizons. It is beginning to dawn upon the enlarging minds of the ascending mortals that some stupendous and magnificent, some supernal and divine, destiny awaits all who complete the progressive Paradise ascension, which has been so laboriously but so joyfully and auspiciously begun. At about this point the average mortal ascender begins to manifest bona fide experiential enthusiasm for the Havona ascent. Study is becoming voluntary, unselfish service natural, and worship spontaneous. A real morontia character is budding; a real morontia creature is evolving.
47:8.7 (538.5) During the sojourn on world number six
the mansion world students achieve a status which is comparable with the exalted development characterizing those evolutionary worlds which have normally progressed beyond the initial stage of light and life. The organization of society on this mansonia is of a high order. The shadow of the mortal nature grows less and less as these worlds are ascended one by one. You are becoming more and more adorable as you leave behind the coarse vestiges of planetary animal origin. “Coming up through great tribulation” serves to make glorified mortals very kind and understanding, very sympathetic and tolerant.
47:9.5 (539.2) You will greatly enjoy your progress through the seven dematerializing worlds; they are really demortalizing spheres. You are mostly human on the first mansion world, just a mortal being minus a material body, a human mind housed in a morontia form — a material body of the morontia world but not a mortal house of flesh and blood. You really pass from the mortal state to the immortal status at the time of Adjuster fusion, and by the time you have finished the Jerusem career, you will be full-fledged morontians.
47:10.7 (540.3) Mortal death is a technique of escape from the material life in the flesh; and the mansonia experience of progressive life through seven worlds of corrective training and cultural education represents the introduction of mortal survivors to the morontia career, the transition life which intervenes between the evolutionary material existence and the higher spirit attainment of the ascenders of time who are destined to achieve the portals of eternity.
What a glorious adventure!! It has already begun for those who embrace the reality of the universe!!
