Thought Adjuster: “It is very difficult for a human being to break with his or her past and dare to think independently. There are some who are exploring spirituality while dreaming about the honors and prestige they will gain by becoming modern prophets. Even when they imagine celestial rewards, they dream about the public recognition of their great deeds for this world. Where does this human desire to be recognized and exalted come from? Recognition is something that some humans consider to be very important.

“Ironically this desire comes from the low self-esteem that is common throughout humanity. It is very hard for a human being to believe that nothing is required to gain divine favor. In this world, only those who do great things gain the respect of their peers. However, beyond this world the only rule is unconditional love and this love is offered to all, equally and without the need for having to do anything to deserve it. Initially, your efforts to live on the Morontia world will be focused on learning how to live under this new paradigm.

“In your world’s history there have been many men and women who made great things to further the advance of truth on Urantia. Even the Creator of this universe lived among you as Jesus of Nazareth. However, in the eyes of the Father, Jesus and any of the prophets or great leaders of this world are not more important than any other of His children, because His love is eternal, unconditional, limitless and our Father doesn’t discriminate against any person. We are all equal in His eyes and this equality is not at a mediocre level; it is instead an exalted level where all of us are considered by our potential — that which we can be when perfected — because in the eyes of God we are truly considered to be His equals.

“So what does it mean to be great in the kingdom of heaven? The highest reward to which any creature can aspire is an increasingly more complete and higher understanding of divinity — the progressive knowledge of God. This is the treasure that your soul and your spirit seek and this achievement represents the highest goal of human existence. Those who get to know their Father better become increasingly like Him and therefore live His will.

“This magnificent achievement can only be reached by trying to be better every day through the intelligent consecration of our decisions and actions to the will of God. The reward for those who chose this path is literally the entire creation, all the knowledge and all the wisdom, and this has nothing to do with the selfish desire to be exalted above our peers. The universes and an eternity to explore them through a life expressing and experiencing the divine love of our Father are being offered to you. This certainly should make your desire for recognition seem irrelevant and myopic.”
