Are you a Seeker of the Spirit?

Asheville, NC, US of A, July 2, 2019.
Trinity Teacher: Uteah.
Subject: “Are you a Seeker of the Spirit?”

Message received by Chris Maurus.

Trinity Teacher Uteah: “When you dedicate time for engaging your Indwelling Spirit, Guardians, and guidance teams, they show up and attempt to work with you to achieve any needful thing that will bring you closer in alignment with the divine plan for your life. Sometimes students feel that they need to recharge their “spiritual batteries” and will plan a spiritual retreat to dedicate a specified period of time for intense spiritual engagement that would otherwise not be experienced during the normal course of living. These can be life changing events that nourish the soul and strengthen your relationship with Spirit. Sometimes it takes keeping an appointment with Spirit to realize the benefits of a spirit-led life?

Have you ever wondered how a “master” of any art, music, or physical discipline acquires his or her abilities to become outstanding above most others? If asked they would tell you that it takes time, dedication, passion, and practice engaging the core study — developing excellence. This is also true for developing a relationship with Spirit. Many will say that they want a more immersive and heart-felt experience with Spirit, but really have no idea where to begin? As above, so below.

If you had the passion to learn to play the violin, how would you go about getting started? You would first make the commitment to learn by investing in a violin. Then, you might seek out information; listen to violin music; and perhaps search for a teacher that can accelerate your learning? You would then be accountable to a teacher for practicing some rudimentary lessons that would give you experience and you would work at this over time, building greater understanding and ability by staying the course. The joy of experiencing progress in your ability brings you back and keeps you engaged. The ultimate satisfaction in playing the violin comes when others find joy in listening to your performance — the beauty they find in the song — the way they feel while in the moment of the performance — that they might also be inspired. To perform with other musicians brings another level of satisfaction and joy.

There are many parallels here that can be applied to a dedicated relationship with Spirit. If you have the passion, you must “invest” in the relationship. Would a teacher-led spiritual retreat help you to get started on a more immersive spirit-led life? This might feel uncomfortable, at first, to consider gathering with others who are looking for a similar experience, but it may be the very thing that you need — to get you outside of your comfort zone. It also provides a safe space with others that do not know you as the accountant, the engineer, or the soccer mom. They see you as a seeker of the Spirit; it puts you on common ground, and it gives you and them the opportunity to share your very intimate spiritual experiences and aspirations without judgment. These events may also foster new relationships with kindred spirits that can last a lifetime.

In your afterlife on the mansion worlds, you will experience many such teacher-led spiritual retreats where you will learn in groups and then have time alone to contemplate the lessons with your Thought Adjuster and Destiny Guardians, and later have discussions with Morontia Companions. These events are meant to prepare you for an ascendant life — an eternal life of service and adventure. Your life on Urantia is meant to prepare you for an ascendant life on the mansion worlds, and so does it not make sense to orient yourself in this way of gathering with others and sharing your unique experiences?

As above, so below, my dear students,
I AM Uteah.

A Commitment for Each Human Being

Alabama, US of A, May 1, 2013.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “A Commitment for Each Human Being.”

Message received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “We have earlier mentioned that this world will leave all darkness behind to move towards an era of light and life only when each and every one of its inhabitants endeavors to be better, to be what our Father desires you to be. This represents a commitment for each human being with his or her Thought Adjuster – with their Father in heaven – to receive guidance, to know the divine will and to align it with their own will.

“What is the role of spiritual leaders in this era? The new spiritual leaders will not be the guardians of dogma or fossilized truths. A true spiritual leader will promote personal exploration. A lightworker will always guide other souls towards the light that hides within their own being. A lightworker will work in harmony with his or her own Inner Teacher and the Internal Teacher of others. A lightworker is simply a facilitator, a host who introduces the student to the Teacher and then retires to let them know each other better.

“Remember that all of you are students on the same path. Every teacher shall always remain a student in order to keep their eyes open to new experiences and revelations of the truth, which may come from any of their peers, from the smallest to the highest. Those who once were guided to the light of salvation by you may well be the ones who later will provide the answers you need in your own life. Instead of students and teachers, consider yourselves as partners in an adventure, explorers who are discovering the wonders of the universe together, thanks to your individual contributions.

“Do not hesitate in appealing to the highest ideals of your peers. Often faith and trust is what a solitary soul needs to start offering the best of herself and to rise above limitations and prejudice. Even those you may consider physically, intellectually, or spiritually backward may be encouraged to be better once they perceive that others believe that this is possible for them. The presence of the Father resides within all of you and the noblest task of a human being is to collaborate with this presence to transform a mortal into a perfected creature with eternal life, whether this collaboration is with your own Divine Spark or your neighbor’s.

“Learn to have trust in your siblings and offer them your words of encouragement and support, because the Presence of God in them will echo your efforts and work directly toward the same goal in their minds, beyond all prejudices and fears. Every exhortation you make to your peers for them to rise above matter will be received by their Thought Adjuster and expressed to the humans in their care and in the best and most adequate terms, tailored to their personalities. There are always opportunities for improvement for all of you and those who really want to be closer to God sooner or later will find success in this adventure.”

By My Grace

Urantia, July 7, 2019.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “By My Grace.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Open wide the gates of your heart and let nothing resist the inflow of God’s love. It is wonderful indeed for you to slowly grow into the surety of God’s unconditional love.

“How often has humankind portrayed Me as an unloving, stern and wrathful God, bent on vengeance and justice for every little thing you can do wrong in a day. Dear one, humankind’s assumptions of Me have mostly been puerile and offensive because of lack of knowledge. How small and puny are man’s thoughts to assign his personal negative emotions to Me!

“No, I am far above that, and even though men think to have found Me in a stone or some other object to venerate, they have not, for I am inscrutable.

“I am the Most High God, and I am using a very simple term here, because I want you to understand that you are only just now beginning to travel the long road home to Me.

“You are finally discovering that you are one rung above the animals on the scale of evolution, but what a huge difference this makes, because animals do not possess the faculty for worship and wisdom.

“It is by My Grace that you climb this ages-long ascension ladder to perfection and I tell you right now that evolution is not an accident. Everything that has gone on before has been by design, except when humans started to interfere and thought to have come up with a better plan. Then things began to go awry.

“Now is the time for each mortal to know Me and seek Me right within their hearts where I reside, as I wish to experience everything they go through with the choices and decisions they make.

“I am here to help you if you so desire, for I know your desires since nothing is hidden from Me.

“Do you really understand what this means, that an actual Fragment of the eternal Creator Architect lives right within you? Can you even begin to comprehend that I am with you always?

“Whenever you need Me, take the time to come to Me in the Stillness of your heart, so you may begin to discern My still Voice.”

About Spiritual Freshness

Oregon, US of A, June 4, 2019.
Teacher: Christ Michael/Jesus.
Subject: “About Spiritual Freshness.”

Message received by Anyas.

Christ Michael/Jesus: “You will forever be My children. I am utterly unable to turn down any heartfelt invitation to share quality time with you, nor would I ever wish to, as they go straight to the soft spot of My heart where I entertain a similar longing because love is at the onset of My creative pursuits.

“No matter how old you may be in human years, the innermost part of you is, and will forever be young in spirit. It is your spiritual freshness that appeals to Me and does My heart good. I could never send away the little ones or those of pure hearts.

“What I wish for each one of you is that you remain children at heart — candidly and unpretentiously running into My open arms.

“Your inner child is alive. Due to the chaotic environment you live in, there may be areas where it lags in its development. As you become aware of them, yours is to bring them up to par with the overall growth curve of your persona. It is how you will get to experience Oneness — by harmonizing the many facets of your being so that it functions optimally, meeting all your needs as well as taking its rightful place in the Greater Cosmic Organism.

“Do not neglect the inner children! Partake of the love I feel for them and reach out to them. If those among you who ‘pretend’ to be grown-up, would only lower themselves to cater to these timid souls, hearts would be tremendously softened and overinflated egos would shrink to their normal size.

“Appease the inner warriors and turn your attention to the inner children. Thus doing, you will transform the many battlefields of your world into the playgrounds they were meant to be. Many withdrawn individuals would be prompted to join the ranks of a no longer intimidating or alienating society. Tensions would be released and replaced with joy, cheerfulness, inquisitiveness, and zest for life. Your inner child would exert a positive influence on your inner grown-up, joyfully tagging along.”

Other Worlds being Compared

Illawarra District, Australia, July 8, 2019.
Teacher: The Damascus Scribe (Sananda).
Subject: “Other Worlds being Compared.”

Message received by George Barnard.

The Scribe: “If you could boldly step out upon another world, even if you were limited to a choice of a normal world within this local universe, you would be amazed by the ‘vibrations in the air’. So much of Light and Life is still missing on our world that you can have no idea of the absolute elegance of some of Michael’s most spiritually advanced planets. Take your mind back to those (3) of your acquaintances who upon the final demise of their physical temples tarried in your presence before moving on.

“I see it as one of your ‘even-money chances’ they expected little of the place where they were going or for it to be markedly better than the earth they were so unexpectedly leaving behind. And, obviously, Midwayers had the time to take them to you before having them ensconced onto a four-winged seraph for a midnight departure to Mansonia One. How surprised they were (as pure souls, though still accompanied by their TAs) to read your mind and find that what you had told them was actually so.

George: “Did Samuel ask about the barren world? (There was an advanced semi-industrialized world I briefly got to see where the locals were still consuming others) And did you find out?”

The Scribe: “It has not improved in the 47 years since your Thought Adjuster took you there. It is thought that the remaining population will regress and is almost certain to die out, but we don’t know. The world would then be rehabilitated and eventually have men and women placed there from an overpopulated world. The Life Carriers may or may not have advice, suggestions, the Melchizedeks will recommend but only Michael will decide.”

George: “Some say that happened here, before we evolved.”

The Scribe: “That is not within my purview to in any way comment on. I will leave you with the Chief (Bzutu) for now. Good night all. I Am the Damascus Scribe.”
