You asked: "When I die due to old age, what will I look like when I
am resurrected? Do I still retain my age or do I look younger?"
Thanks for this interesting question!
I am a student like you, and have no special knowledge about the
teachings of The Urantia Book. But I particularly like these passages
from Paper 112, Personality Survival, section 6 "The Morontia Self" :
These are good clues...
112:6.2 It is difficult to instruct
you regarding your morontia personality forms for the local universe
career. You will be endowed with morontia patterns of personality
manifestability, and these are investments which, in the last analysis,
are beyond your comprehension. Such forms, while entirely real, are not
energy patterns of the material order which you now understand. They
do, however, serve the same purpose on the local universe worlds as do
your material bodies on the planets of human nativity.
112:6.3 To a certain extent, the appearance of the material
is responsive to the character of the personality identity; the
physical body does, to a limited degree, reflect something of the
inherent nature of the personality. Still more so does the morontia
form. In the physical life, mortals may be outwardly beautiful though
inwardly unlovely; in the morontia life, and increasingly on its higher
levels, the personality form will vary directly in accordance with the
nature of the inner person. On the spiritual level, outward form and
inner nature begin to approximate complete identification, which grows
more and more perfect on higher and higher spirit levels.
We are told that these forms are "beyond your comprehension." But I
find the instruction that this new form will reflect "the nature of the
inner person" very interesting and intriguing. It makes me want to grow
a sturdy, healthy, and lovely character while here on Urantia!
I certainly don't think we will look old or aged...our old physical
bodies will be left behind. But as for the new form...well, we just
have to use our imaginations and strive to be our best selves while
we're here so that we feel - and look - as good as possible when we
