Small Decisions

Alabama, US of A, November 19, 2012.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Small Decisions.”

Message received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “What is the secret about living your Father’s will? The will of the Father is not something mysterious that requires years of study in order to be understood. Any inquisitive soul can find the path that Our Father offers, because it is always the path with most love. However, in this world it is evident that not everybody is choosing this path. How is it that something so simple can be made so complicated?

“Even when all human beings possess the ability to differentiate between good and evil, thanks to the numerous spiritual agents that influence the human soul like the Divine Presence and the Spirit of Truth, they are the decisions of a human being that determine what is expressed during his or her life. Those who consistently decide to be the best they can be and strive to choose as the Father would choose in their place, are constantly learning to understand love and to be an expression of this love.

“Many mortals are spiritually lazy and morally inert. These mortals choose to follow the norms that society imposes without questioning the merits of those rules and their potentials to make them a better person. They are the ones who spare nary a thought for transcendental truths or eternal realities. They live as the world tells them to live and do not consider any alternatives.

“This attitude has made them insensitive to the divine inspiration of their Thought Adjusters and, in reality, they live in a state similar to a slumber, functioning like automatons without exercising their rights to choose freely. These are the ones who have chosen not to rise above their animal origin because to not choose is actually a choice. When you choose to do nothing, you are in reality choosing to ignore an important lesson in your life or to delay the attainment of something valuable that you need to increase your understanding.

“The key to learn the will of the Father is a constant and sincere self-examination. It is stopping from time to time during the journey of your life to look around and wonder if you are walking the right path or if it is necessary to retrace your steps and once more find the path your Father prepared for you. Be aware that it is advisable to frequently perform this self-examination otherwise you may find that you walked many miles in the wrong direction, making it hard to go back and find the right path.

“A life consecrated to the will of the Father is not a life of great decisions in some crucial moments. It is instead a life of small decisions oriented to the attainment of perfection and made many times during a lifetime.”

Cross over the threshold

Monterrey, Mexico, August 10, 2017.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Cross over the threshold.”

Message received by Bettina.

Thought Adjuster: “You have the power; it is inside of you.

“You have a decision to make. You can stay in suffering, in doubt, in resentment and in worries, or you can cross the threshold that separates this darkness from that bright and happy ‘other world’. That threshold is not far away, it is always within your reach; simply choose to see it. Whenever you decide, you can step over this threshold and live in the world of peace, faith, forgiveness, tranquility and happiness.

“These two ‘worlds’ are available to you today. Which one will you choose? It’s up to you where you decide to be. That decision does not happen on the outside or by appearances, but inside of you. It is through your mind and free will that you decide the life you want to live, and it is also through your mind and free will that you create your reality.

“Live in consciousness of My presence, always enlightened by My radiant light, full of love and peace. Observe your world from this place next to Me. All those situations that could threaten to affect your peace will fail, because you have crossed the threshold and with it you will bring Paradise to your life. Understand that I AM here with you.”

The System for Spiritual Growth

Asheville, NC, US of A, October 1, 2017.
Teacher: Ophelius.
Subject: “The System for Spiritual Growth.”

Message received by Chris Maurus.

Teacher Ophelius: “Today, dear students on the path, we would like to explore the idea of bringing together all your spiritual resources into a ‘system’ using your Indwelling Spirit of the Father, your Thought Adjuster (TA), as a spiritual hub to connect you with any deity, guide, ascended master, guardian angel, arch angel, teacher, friend, or loved one — here or hereafter. Since all minds are a part of the One Universal Mind, there is no greater way to connect than to ask your Spiritual Operator to make that connection for you.

“We have in prior messages given you this metaphor using your TA as the ‘Sun-like Center’ having all your resources in orbit around this ‘Central Sun.’ This is a natural structure in the universes and its pattern is found at all levels of creation from the great galactic mother wheels of stars and planets to the tiny atom with its sub-atomic particles orbiting around it. Your relationships in life can be viewed this way also — having lovers, friends, and family, in varying orbits around your heart — some in closer orbits and others further away.

“Whether you realize it or not, when you make a connection to deity, your guides, angels, or teachers, this is the path to that connection. The TA is always the Operator who coordinates and directs all your mind to mind connections, prayers, and other petitions. So, the question you might ask is: ‘Does it matter that I use this pattern of thinking when making a spiritual connection?’ Your prayers, petitions, and your ability to reach a spiritual resource will still be available to you with or without this structure in mind, but it will none the less happen that way. Using this structure of thought helps you to build a vital relationship with your God Fragment and it is this most intimate and personal connection you have with the Creator that is the key to all life and ascension (perfection attainment) here and hereafter.

“If your spiritual growth and personality maturity in life was to be plotted on a curve, it might look something like a gentle slope upward, but when you establish a real personal and working relationship with your TA, that curve takes on an accelerated uptick in slope and with it brings a wealth of awareness and spiritual powers. There are many of you reading this message who have reached a plateau and are asking, ‘what’s next for me?’ This is your next step in achieving your succeeding Psychic Circles in human personality potentiality.

“Now, my dear students, you may be imagining this system of Sun and planets in your mind and observing it from afar like looking at it from a map, but to truly make your relationship with your TA real, I suggest you move your vantage point into the center of this blazing star looking outward toward all your orbits. It is said by your scientists that within the heart of a star there is ‘fusion reaction’ with its elements and it is this fusion that creates the heat and light of the star. So too, when you bring yourself into the heart of your TA, you begin this fusion reaction which brings warmth, light, and love to all those relationships in your orbit. Later in your career, when this relationship reaches a pinnacle, you shall fuse with your TA and become a new and undeniable eternal being in the family of God.

“I have an exercise for you that may help you understand this most intimate relationship with your TA. Before you begin any meditation, stillness, petition or prayer, center yourself and slowly speak these two words in repetition: I AM, I AM, I AM … These two words bring together the personal and the impersonal — the created and the Creator. ‘I’ (you) and I AM (First Cause — Creator). You are speaking in the first person and from within the unity of the First Cause. You may notice an uncanny feeling of a blurred identity when saying these words. You get a sense or foretaste of what it is like to be fused with the Creator — to be One with all things.

“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Receiver’s note: The picture I was given when the Teacher was speaking of a graph looked something like this:

The Ethics of the Kingdom of God

São Carlos-SP, Brazil, September 23, 2017.
Teacher: Prolotheos.
Subject: “The Ethics of the Kingdom of God.”

Message received by Valdir Soares.

Prolotheos: “Ethics are principles that regulate individual behavior in life. Naturally, ethics are dictated by one’s conscience but they can also spring from assorted philosophies or some religious beliefs. Indeed, ethics presuppose the promotion of a better human behavior in society and to contribute to common welfare. Thus, there can exist different kinds of ethics according to various philosophies or beliefs that validate different types of behavior. The teachings of Jesus of Nazareth represent the ethics of the Kingdom of God which He proclaimed on Urantia. If we could mention three important postulates of the Kingdom of God’s ethics, which would they be?

Being Humble. “Oftentimes, especially in success-driven-societies such as most of the Urantian societies, humility is comparable to weakness and a cowardly attitude in life. This is far from the truth. Humbleness certainly is the opposite of arrogance but it is not in any way synonymous with inferiority. Jesus was the humblest person who ever lived on your world and He was the furthest from either being weak or being a coward. In the evolutionary realm, the genuine humble one recognizes his or her weaknesses as well as those personality skills that bring personal distinction. However, he or she consistently refuses to use them for self-aggrandizement but rather, steadily employs them to promote other people’s well-being.

Being Considerate. “Kind consideration to others, especially to those underprivileged in any way, is basic in the principles extensively taught by Jesus: unselfishness, the noble attitude of putting others’ interests before one’s own. Being considerate, on the one hand, is refusing to make use of manipulation, deceptiveness, and coercion or similar in dealing with others. On the other hand, being considerate also seeks to protect others from evildoers’ malice and from their own naivety and misguided actions, without patronizing them. Those considerate of others kindly think of a fellow’s disadvantageous conditions and try to find ways of compensating them to their benefit.

Being Helpful. “Being helpful is more than merely being moved by pity. Pity may be caused by your observing of the helpless condition of somebody and a desire to alleviate such a plight. Being helpful may include these aspects but it is not satisfied by simple alleviation, rather by trying to be instrumental in an effective and lasting change in people’s condition beyond the immediate aspects, and towards a self-sustaining state. To be helpful includes acting with sensitivity, to neither be forceful nor humiliating towards the person being assisted. One should always respect people’s will and dignity to be really helpful.

“In this way, my pupil, the ethics of the Kingdom of God, are reflections of the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth on Urantia. Some of these ethical commands are humility, consideration and helpfulness. It can easily be noted that these three principles reflect the commandment of loving your neighbor. The ethics of the Kingdom value solidarity, love and respect as the means to build a Brotherhood-Sisterhood on Urantia based on the Fatherhood of God. Ethics are principles to be held in whatever circumstances you experience. I am Prolotheos your tutor on High. Peace.”

This Path is Open to Each Mortal

Urantia, October 1, 2017.
Teacher: The Beloved One.
Subject: “This Path is Open to Each Mortal.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved One: “Within you are depths of being which are as yet totally undiscovered; and heights of awareness which are to be scaled like mountains. These you will reach only by sincere efforts on your path.

“The spiritual path is neither for the mentally lazy and slothful, nor for those who are waiting to be spoon-fed by others. And neither is spiritual seeking reserved for the greatly intelligent and highly educated. It takes much time and effort to delve into the mysteries of life.

“Spiritual living is for those with adventurous minds, stout and courageous hearts. The joy of such lives shall rise like cream to the top of the milk. Be brave, dear heart, and continue your climb inward and upward.

“The more dedicated you are to search out the mystery residing in your heart, the greater your joy will be when your search is finally rewarded in us becoming one. This represents the second step in your age-long ascension journey towards Paradise.

“The first step was your waking up to My calling out to you and your responding to this Spirit-self, which God has gifted you. It was then when the search and the hunger began to find Me, and oh what a journey this is turning out to be!

“Insights are gained, your understanding is enlarging, you love is deepening and your wisdom and joy are increasing. With time you are gathering soul-rest and peace of mind, which are even now starting to pervade your physical temple as it is becoming more harmonious and balanced!

“All this is experienced on the road towards perfection. Together, you and I are building heaven’s counterpart here on earth. It is fallacy to think that when you leave this mortal estate, that you will be made perfect in the blink of an eye.

“The learning and experiencing continues, because of increasing sincerity and loving service to others through many promotions on the road to Paradise.

“This path is open to each mortal who listens for the call of Spirit to become perfect — even as God is perfect — by their answering to the pull of Paradise.”
