Update by CM
Also inclusion of the First Paper of the Urantia Book, The Universal Father
Hello beloveds, Christ Michael here for the long needed update, Candace has been pushy about it. Ye ones wish this of course even if she sometimes posts our plans minus the channeling, she still receives the information.
Now recently I worked with Hazel, about your oneness with me you MUST demonstrate. It is time to be doing that 24/7 even though you may be ignored. Show the way. Cut down the use of your automobiles, find out where you are wasteful or stuck in materialism and cut it back and let people KNOW why. There is so much you could be doing besides wishing for Stasis.
American's response to the Gulf of Mexico disaster was nothing less than completely dishonorable to God and the mother planet. So be it, I guess. The density grows and it is difficult for us to work against it.
As Esu said recently thru Adam the new levels of "acceptance" grow lower and lower, as at what point will you all rebel against the beast? We are NOT seeing evidence yet, in almost any place on earth, but in particular the so called "advanced" western nations.
Ye all are born, even the robotics knowing something of Godness and yet there is no movement in that direction. Well enough on that sad topic, ye all want to know what the Mother is doing.
Well, it seems, as Candace likes to joke, it will become necessary for a Caesarian section to deliver this child of God on to this planet. A mighty wake up call and we are trying to do our best in this, but the density almost seems to grow 2 steps back for every step forward. In other words there is NOT progress. At least one step backwards for every 2 steps forward is progress.
We have to "fight" this constantly with injections of light. So such it is on a backward world like this one. As has been covered we are going with the axis SHIFT. Candace posted on this recently. The first few days went well, and I was pleased, and then everything just "froze up" so to speak. We have been increasing the energies heavily trying to "loosen up" the matter so it will move. We need a bigger change to get man's attention. This is on going and we shortly think the axis will move again for us. We want a bigger more sudden movement for the attention of such.
What is going on Arkansas so many are asking? Well, it's the New Madrid, which is expanding into old fault lines. Not a situation of pumping or fracting for gas. The Gulf of Mexico situation is terrible. There is oil in most of it, and clearly visible if your controllers would let the pictures be posted from airplanes.
Link to one image: Shocking aerial photo of shoreline in Orange Beach, AL near Florida border
So much oil and natural gas have come forth that the pressure is equalizing and the risk thus down somewhat on that long fissure line we have spoken of before. That is why the blowout has not yet occurred. But this does not mean it is over. Have you ones any idea exactly how much oil and gas came out of those underground caverns that caused this equalization? (Candace: It's still coming, this does not mean it is stopped, it means the pressure is less.) It is not even in your number system within your understanding.
The GOM is now at least 50% oil and the currents are not working correctly for several reasons. Europe and the eastern coast of the United States are not going to have those warm currents thru the coming winter. Man has deliberately brought on his own ice age cometh again. While the blowout was NOT intentional, everything there after WAS. The thugs do know their science in that regard and they know they have created a climate changing event and that was in fact their purpose. (Candace: The above statement on the weather does NOT imply we are going to have winter.)
Now, back to the axis shift. We are hoping for a much larger one, up to one degree at least this time in a single movement. This may take a bit more time to set up, but we are playing "catch up" here. Man must be awakened before stasis to what he has done.
We are still going to require the mini stasis we have spoken of. It will happen still with the GOM incident, because we must get in there and remove those pent up gasses. We must also remove the huge buildup of oil. We have huge tanker ships here that you can hardly image as to size, that will remove this oil and liquid gases during the mini stasis.
The animal life in the whole of the gulf is all but dead. This huge collection must not be allowed into the general circulation of this world, it is too much. It is actually good this is building ONLY in the gulf and the natural circuits are thus broken.
Each of you can observe this on your satellite images. Storms coming in from the Caribbean are turning around and heading back to sea before they enter the Gulf. They are not moving up the coast of the United States as they should. You see dear ones, not only are we talking the circulating currents of water in the Gulf, but the currents of the storms. They are inter twined. You should be where you can find ears to hear, stating this and showing people. (Candace: Tropical Weather : Weather Underground has a chart near the lower part of the page, where you can select different zones in the tropics. Select infrared and animation to see the flows. I have watched several storms now that did not enter the Gulf and instead angled over cuba and back out into the mid area of the Atlantic Ocean. )
Now to our thugs: We are going to remove all of you during the mini stasis, in every facet of your control. The "elected" offices, the appointed offices, the Media, many corporate chairmen and the like. We will also removed those in the sex trades and related debauchery. The numbers will be quite large. We have replacements in place for after the mini stasis, but I will not detail how at this point. We ARE going to give the people as best an education as we have time about who we are.
We will be also as the disasters occur, be removing those in the specific areas of disaster, that are leaving the planet for all the reasons we have detailed before. Some of the younger souls will experience their "resurrection" and be removed to the mansion worlds. Many, as we have stated before are leaving to the "new planet" that has been prepared.
Candace: Recently I was re reading sections of the Urantia Book, and came across this statement, about moving populations to replacement planets.
Page 582, Paper 51: (582.3) While there is this dematerializing technique for preparing the Adams for transit from Jerusem to the evolutionary worlds, there is no equivalent method for taking them away from such worlds unless the entire planet is to be emptied, in which event emergency installation of the dematerialization technique is made for the entire salvable population. If some physical catastrophe should doom the planetary residence of an evolving race, the Melchizedeks and the Life Carriers would install the technique of dematerialization for all survivors, and by seraphic transport these beings would be carried away to the new world prepared for their continuing existence. The evolution of a human race, once initiated on a world of space, must proceed quite independently of the physical survival of that planet, but during the evolutionary ages it is not otherwise intended that a Planetary Adam or Eve shall leave their chosen world.
Candace: The PJ's also discuss that the planet will be emptied and cleansed and there is a new planet prepared. Just to back up what we have been posting. Those from the higher realms of Nebadon, as mentioned above, the Melchizedeks, Life Carriers come to a planet that is to be either lost, or emptied for a time, many years in advance to prepare those of God for the event. By "survivors" above, it means those that are adjuster in-dwelt. It is mentioned several times that people must make their decisions so they can be prepared to be evacuated.
In the case of massive nuclear detonations, people have to be dematerialized, as they can't get down close to the planet, and so only adjuster in dwelt folks are removed. They have only 15 minutes to empty the planet. Often times the bodies are not prepared, but the soul still goes. In cases of more time, like am impending pole reversal, they can get closer and take people in a beam, but many don't survive this physically either, if not prepared in advance. In these cases more people and animals are removed in their bodies however. This new planet of which we speak, was prepared with the idea this planet would be emptied. They take NO criminals to new worlds.
The planet is not going to be fully emptied under our current plans, because of the stasis, and returning peoples after such. But for new readers, this planet is very overpopulated and many people are going to MOVE, a lot of them. Some by loosing their bodies and incarnating elsewhere, others by direct removal to this new planet, other planets and also just aboard craft for long periods of time if there are no other places for these still living ones. They can be given much education before their normal passage from life. We have many people here with craft from material/physical worlds, because this IS a physical planet. Sadly, our thugs created the "rapture" story which seems to be around the evacuation, and for unknown reasons, christians in particular seem to think at the time of the rapture their physical bodies go to heaven. NOT SO. These bodies do not work on the architectural worlds.
Christ Michael: And, during the disasters that are coming forth, we will assist in the feeding of the people of earth before the big stasis, so there is not suffering from lack of food. This will be a short period. It will be a benevolent period where people will see "God" in action.
Now, as to the recent October 13 date where it was put out there would be world wide showings, ask yourself this question. DID WE state this, or was it the dark ones? A few craft were shown, some of our comrades decided to do this, such as the ones over New York city, but this was NOT our plan. In fact the dark are happy for it, for to them, it shows we aren't "real" since we didn't show. Or they make it look like we put out false information when the show and tell does not happen. Notice there was a goodly deal of dark ones also suggesting it would be Operation Blue Beam. There were in fact "blue beams" seen. They were not our "blue beams." Operation Blue Beam will not happen on my watch.
(Candace: I will let readers that never heard of Operation/Project Blue Beam, do their own research on the web. )
There are quite a few readers of AH that fully expected this big show and tell, and if it was on MY orders, it would have been put out thru Candace. Enough on that one.
This weekend we are intensifying our efforts and our activities of the last few days. The density of matter cannot be suddenly changed, it is a gradual process. Understand many of you will have intense physical symptoms from this. Candace is hearing of folks making trips to the hospital over the chest pains that occur. As the planet shifts to a new axis, this may produce vomiting, vertigo, strange pains and disorientation. Be prepared. And once the plates begin to move there are going to be an abundance also of very strange and frightening noises. (Candace: I have twice recently had chest pain with pain down both arms. I mentioned that before on the front site.)
There were widespread reports on the web last week as this process was gently started of both earth changes and the physical discomforts. These will be much worse this weekend as the energies are increased and the axis begins to move again. It will take, once the axis starts to shift, about 6 to 12 hours to make a whole degree, if we are lucky on that one, and the symptoms of people throughout the world will be huge. Just be aware of this. And of course there will be quakes and other disasters. The changes to date with the axis have weakened many structures and these ones could collapse. You can expect bridges and building collapse, sink holes, huge ground fractures and more. And you can expect a sleepy planetary people to go into large fear. You can expect all sorts of reactions around you and a lot of propaganda may hit the internet.
We wish to accomplish at least 2 degrees total. We are actually about 0.55 to date since we started over a week ago, in small increments. The increments must increase in size this time. You can also expect problems with your reception from satellites, because the reception points are not going to line up. We can and well move satellites necessary to our announcement process, but we will not move them until during the short stasis. You can expect your GPS systems to malfunction also.
This is enough for this time. Be prepared. And store your own food where you can beloveds, for it is the right thing to do, and the right thing to demonstrate. Many of you have refused this because your DOOM did not happen, but all should always be prepared for the DOOM.
This is a world where the people are going to react very poorly. Particularly those used to comfort. Everything they know will be shaken when their earth shakes and they have no preparations for such. Prepare your own "houses." For doing such IS of God. Now, it's back to work for myself. You see, Eternal Life is not about living in fuzzy bliss, it's about work, everyone works! There is no one who has accomplished eternal life that is not at work. That is why so many turn it down! They do not wish to grow themselves, which requires work. Be in Peace. I AM Christ Michael Aton.
Candace: I took to re reading the first papers in the Urantia Book some weeks ago, actually some quite recently as I was recovering my health after the recent microwave attack and the loss of another computer and ensuing problems. By the way, I will state here my deep gratitude to all our readers who sent contributions to get me yet another computer!!!! For without which I cannot do my work and stay in contact with all of you!
Anyway, I have several favorites places there, and was sorting thru them, and decided instead to just post whole papers, those of about the Universal Father, initially. So I am putting Paper 1 here for your reading. Some of you have yet to even open the Urantia Book and perhaps this will encourage you to take that brave step into the 2000+ page behemoth. So here we go and I will you decide which parts of this first chapter sing to your own hearts, for even new age has a lot of problems understanding the person of the Universal Father. Take from www.urantia.org. I highly suggest purchasing a copy to mark up. Mine is full of such and lots and lots of paper clips too. For those confused by "universes" the creation did not come into being all at once, and continues to grow, and creations are grouped into "local universes" for management. Yes the creation IS managed. There ARE governments. There are 700,000 universes conceived to date and many more in "outer space" coming into creation. Each has at it's helm, a Creator Son of God. We belong to Nebadon, whose Creator Son, is Christ MIchael and who is personally present at this time using a body, for he is spirit, so that he is "visible" to us. I am bolding some parts in this that I feel especially important in beginning to grasp the concept of God.
The Urantia Book
The Universal Father
(21.1) 1:0.1 THE Universal Father is the God of all creation, the First Source and Center of all things and beings. First think of God as a creator, then as a controller, and lastly as an infinite upholder. The truth about the Universal Father had begun to dawn upon mankind when the prophet said: "You, God, are alone; there is none beside you. You have created the heaven and the heaven of heavens, with all their hosts; you preserve and control them. By the Sons of God were the universes made. The Creator covers himself with light as with a garment and stretches out the heavens as a curtain." Only the concept of the Universal Father - one God in the place of many gods - enabled mortal man to comprehend the Father as divine creator and infinite controller.
(21.2) 1:0.2 The myriads of planetary systems were all made to be eventually inhabited by many different types of intelligent creatures, beings who could know God, receive the divine affection, and love him in return. The universe of universes is the work of God and the dwelling place of his diverse creatures. "God created the heavens and formed the earth; he established the universe and created this world not in vain; he formed it to be inhabited."
(21.3) 1:0.3 The enlightened worlds all recognize and worship the Universal Father, the eternal maker and infinite upholder of all creation. The will creatures of universe upon universe have embarked upon the long, long Paradise journey, the fascinating struggle of the eternal adventure of attaining God the Father. The transcendent goal of the children of time is to find the eternal God, to comprehend the divine nature, to recognize the Universal Father. God-knowing creatures have only one supreme ambition, just one consuming desire, and that is to become, as they are in their spheres, like him as he is in his Paradise perfection of personality and in his universal sphere of righteous supremacy. From the Universal Father who inhabits eternity there has gone forth the supreme mandate, "Be you perfect, even as I am perfect." In love and mercy the messengers of Paradise have carried this divine exhortation down through the ages and out through the universes, even to such lowly animal-origin creatures as the human races of Urantia.
(22.1) 1:0.4 This magnificent and universal injunction to strive for the attainment of the perfection of divinity is the first duty, and should be the highest ambition, of all the struggling creature creation of the God of perfection. This possibility of the attainment of divine perfection is the final and certain destiny of all man's eternal spiritual progress.
(21.2) 1:0.5 Urantia mortals can hardly hope to be perfect in the infinite sense, but it is entirely possible for human beings, starting out as they do on this planet, to attain the supernal and divine goal which the infinite God has set for mortal man; and when they do achieve this destiny, they will, in all that pertains to self-realization and mind attainment, be just as replete in their sphere of divine perfection as God himself is in his sphere of infinity and eternity. Such perfection may not be universal in the material sense, unlimited in intellectual grasp, or final in spiritual experience, but it is final and complete in all finite aspects of divinity of will, perfection of personality motivation, and God-consciousness.
(22.3) 1:0.6 This is the true meaning of that divine command, "Be you perfect, even as I am perfect," which ever urges mortal man onward and beckons him inward in that long and fascinating struggle for the attainment of higher and higher levels of spiritual values and true universe meanings. This sublime search for the God of universes is the supreme adventure of the inhabitants of all the worlds of time and space.
1. The Father's Name
(22.4) 1:1.1 Of all the names by which God the Father is known throughout the universes, those which designate him as the First Source and the Universe Center are most often encountered. The First Father is known by various names in different universes and in different sectors of the same universe. The names which the creature assigns to the Creator are much dependent on the creature's concept of the Creator. The First Source and Universe Center has never revealed himself by name, only by nature. If we believe that we are the children of this Creator, it is only natural that we should eventually call him Father. But this is the name of our own choosing, and it grows out of the recognition of our personal relationship with the First Source and Center. (Candace: I use the term First Source, myself)
(22.5) 1:1.2 The Universal Father never imposes any form of arbitrary recognition, formal worship, or slavish service upon the intelligent will creatures of the universes. The evolutionary inhabitants of the worlds of time and space must of themselves - in their own hearts - recognize, love, and voluntarily worship him. The Creator refuses to coerce or compel the submission of the spiritual free wills of his material creatures. The affectionate dedication of the human will to the doing of the Father's will is man's choicest gift to God; in fact, such a consecration of creature will constitutes man's only possible gift of true value to the Paradise Father. In God, man lives, moves, and has his being; there is nothing which man can give to God except this choosing to abide by the Father's will, and such decisions, effected by the intelligent will creatures of the universes, constitute the reality of that true worship which is so satisfying to the love-dominated nature of the Creator Father.
(22.6) 1:1.3 When you have once become truly God-conscious, after you really discover the majestic Creator and begin to experience the realization of the indwelling presence of the divine controller, then, in accordance with your enlightenment and in accordance with the manner and method by which the divine Sons reveal God, you will find a name for the Universal Father which will be adequately expressive of your concept of the First Great Source and Center. And so, on different worlds and in various universes, the Creator becomes known by numerous appellations, in spirit of relationship all meaning the same but, in words and symbols, each name standing for the degree, the depth, of his enthronement in the hearts of his creatures of any given realm.
(23.1) 1:1.4 Near the center of the universe of universes, the Universal Father is generally known by names which may be regarded as meaning the First Source. Farther out in the universes of space, the terms employed to designate the Universal Father more often mean the Universal Center. Still farther out in the starry creation, he is known, as on the headquarters world of your local universe, as the First Creative Source and Divine Center. In one near-by constellation God is called the Father of Universes. In another, the Infinite Upholder, and to the east, the Divine Controller. He has also been designated the Father of Lights, the Gift of Life, and the All-powerful One.
(23.2) 1:1.5 On those worlds where a Paradise Son has lived a bestowal life, God is generally known by some name indicative of personal relationship, tender affection, and fatherly devotion. On your constellation headquarters God is referred to as the Universal Father, and on different planets in your local system of inhabited worlds he is variously known as the Father of Fathers, the Paradise Father, the Havona Father, and the Spirit Father. Those who know God through the revelations of the bestowals of the Paradise Sons, eventually yield to the sentimental appeal of the touching relationship of the creature-Creator association and refer to God as "our Father."
(23.3) 1:1.6 On a planet of sex creatures, in a world where the impulses of parental emotion are inherent in the hearts of its intelligent beings, the term Father becomes a very expressive and appropriate name for the eternal God. He is best known, most universally acknowledged, on your planet, Urantia, by the name God. The name he is given is of little importance; the significant thing is that you should know him and aspire to be like him. Your prophets of old truly called him "the everlasting God" and referred to him as the one who "inhabits eternity."
2. The Reality of God
(23.4) 1:2.1 God is primal reality in the spirit world; God is the source of truth in the mind spheres; God overshadows all throughout the material realms. To all created intelligences God is a personality, and to the universe of universes he is the First Source and Center of eternal reality. God is neither manlike nor machinelike. The First Father is universal spirit, eternal truth, infinite reality, and father personality.
(23.5) 1:2.2 The eternal God is infinitely more than reality idealized or the universe personalized. God is not simply the supreme desire of man, the mortal quest objectified. Neither is God merely a concept, the power-potential of righteousness. The Universal Father is not a synonym for nature, neither is he natural law personified. God is a transcendent reality, not merely man's traditional concept of supreme values. God is not a psychological focalization of spiritual meanings, neither is he "the noblest work of man." God may be any or all of these concepts in the minds of men, but he is more. He is a saving person and a loving Father to all who enjoy spiritual peace on earth, and who crave to experience personality survival in death.
(24.1) 1:2.3 The actuality of the existence of God is demonstrated in human experience by the indwelling of the divine presence, the spirit Monitor sent from Paradise to live in the mortal mind of man and there to assist in evolving the immortal soul of eternal survival. The presence of this divine Adjuster in the human mind is disclosed by three experiential phenomena:
(24.2) 1:2.4 1. The intellectual capacity for knowing God - God-consciousness.
(24.3) 1:2.5 2. The spiritual urge to find God - God-seeking.
(24.4) 1:2.6 3. The personality craving to be like God - the wholehearted desire to do the Father's will.
(24.5) 1:2.7 The existence of God can never be proved by scientific experiment or by the pure reason of logical deduction. God can be realized only in the realms of human experience; nevertheless, the true concept of the reality of God is reasonable to logic, plausible to philosophy, essential to religion, and indispensable to any hope of personality survival.
(24.6) 1:2.8 Those who know God have experienced the fact of his presence; such God-knowing mortals hold in their personal experience the only positive proof of the existence of the living God which one human being can offer to another. The existence of God is utterly beyond all possibility of demonstration except for the contact between the God-consciousness of the human mind and the God-presence of the Thought Adjuster that indwells the mortal intellect and is bestowed upon man as the free gift of the Universal Father.
(24.7) 1:2.9 In theory you may think of God as the Creator, and he is the personal creator of Paradise and the central universe of perfection, but the universes of time and space are all created and organized by the Paradise corps of the Creator Sons. The Universal Father is not the personal creator of the local universe of Nebadon; the universe in which you live is the creation of his Son Michael. Though the Father does not personally create the evolutionary universes, he does control them in many of their universal relationships and in certain of their manifestations of physical, mindal, and spiritual energies. God the Father is the personal creator of the Paradise universe and, in association with the Eternal Son, the creator of all other personal universe Creators.
(24.8) 1:2.10 As a physical controller in the material universe of universes, the First Source and Center functions in the patterns of the eternal Isle of Paradise, and through this absolute gravity center the eternal God exercises cosmic overcontrol of the physical level equally in the central universe and throughout the universe of universes. As mind, God functions in the Deity of the Infinite Spirit; as spirit, God is manifest in the person of the Eternal Son and in the persons of the divine children of the Eternal Son. This interrelation of the First Source and Center with the co-ordinate Persons and Absolutes of Paradise does not in the least preclude the direct personal action of the Universal Father throughout all creation and on all levels thereof. Through the presence of his fragmentized spirit the Creator Father maintains immediate contact with his creature children and his created universes. (Called the Thought Adjuster in the UB. It is a fragment of the Universal Father, a piece of his mind, that indwells YOUR mind, thus you are made in the image of God.)
3. God is a Universal Spirit
(25.1) 1:3.1 "God is spirit." He is a universal spiritual presence. The Universal Father is an infinite spiritual reality; he is "the sovereign, eternal, immortal, invisible, and only true God." Even though you are "the offspring of God," you ought not to think that the Father is like yourselves in form and physique because you are said to be created "in his image" - indwelt by Mystery Monitors dispatched from the central abode of his eternal presence. Spirit beings are real, notwithstanding they are invisible to human eyes; even though they have not flesh and blood.
(25.2) 1:3.2 Said the seer of old: "Lo, he goes by me, and I see him not; he passes on also, but I perceive him not." We may constantly observe the works of God, we may be highly conscious of the material evidences of his majestic conduct, but rarely may we gaze upon the visible manifestation of his divinity, not even to behold the presence of his delegated spirit of human indwelling.
(25.3) 1:3.3 The Universal Father is not invisible because he is hiding himself away from the lowly creatures of materialistic handicaps and limited spiritual endowments. The situation rather is: "You cannot see my face, for no mortal can see me and live." No material man could behold the spirit God and preserve his mortal existence. The glory and the spiritual brilliance of the divine personality presence is impossible of approach by the lower groups of spirit beings or by any order of material personalities. The spiritual luminosity of the Father's personal presence is a "light which no mortal man can approach; which no material creature has seen or can see." But it is not necessary to see God with the eyes of the flesh in order to discern him by the faith-vision of the spiritualized mind.
(25.4) 1:3.4 The spirit nature of the Universal Father is shared fully with his coexistent self, the Eternal Son of Paradise. Both the Father and the Son in like manner share the universal and eternal spirit fully and unreservedly with their conjoint personality co-ordinate, the Infinite Spirit. God's spirit is, in and of himself, absolute; in the Son it is unqualified, in the Spirit, universal, and in and by all of them, infinite.
(25.5) 1:3.5 God is a universal spirit; God is the universal person. The supreme personal reality of the finite creation is spirit; the ultimate reality of the personal cosmos is absonite spirit. Only the levels of infinity are absolute, and only on such levels is there finality of oneness between matter, mind, and spirit. (which you all seek in becoming LIKE the Father. )
(25.6) 1:3.6 In the universes God the Father is, in potential, the overcontroller of matter, mind, and spirit. Only by means of his far-flung personality circuit does God deal directly with the personalities of his vast creation of will creatures, but he is contactable (outside of Paradise) only in the presences of his fragmented entities, the will of God abroad in the universes. This Paradise spirit that indwells the minds of the mortals of time and there fosters the evolution of the immortal soul of the surviving creature is of the nature and divinity of the Universal Father. But the minds of such evolutionary creatures originate in the local universes and must gain divine perfection by achieving those experiential transformations of spiritual attainment which are the inevitable result of a creature's choosing to do the will of the Father in heaven.
(26.1) 1:3.7 In the inner experience of man, mind is joined to matter. Such material-linked minds cannot survive mortal death. The technique of survival is embraced in those adjustments of the human will and those transformations in the mortal mind whereby such a God-conscious intellect gradually becomes spirit taught and eventually spirit led. This evolution of the human mind from matter association to spirit union results in the transmutation of the potentially spirit phases of the mortal mind into the morontia realities of the immortal soul. Mortal mind subservient to matter is destined to become increasingly material and consequently to suffer eventual personality extinction; mind yielded to spirit is destined to become increasingly spiritual and ultimately to achieve oneness with the surviving and guiding divine spirit and in this way to attain survival and eternity of personality existence.
(26.2) 1:3.8 I come forth from the Eternal, and I have repeatedly returned to the presence of the Universal Father. I know of the actuality and personality of the First Source and Center, the Eternal and Universal Father. I know that, while the great God is absolute, eternal, and infinite, he is also good, divine, and gracious. I know the truth of the great declarations: "God is spirit" and "God is love," and these two attributes are most completely revealed to the universe in the Eternal Son.
4. The Mystery of God
(26.3) 1:4.1 The infinity of the perfection of God is such that it eternally constitutes him mystery. And the greatest of all the unfathomable mysteries of God is the phenomenon of the divine indwelling of mortal minds. The manner in which the Universal Father sojourns with the creatures of time is the most profound of all universe mysteries; the divine presence in the mind of man is the mystery of mysteries.
(26.4) 1:4.2 The physical bodies of mortals are "the temples of God." Notwithstanding that the Sovereign Creator Sons come near the creatures of their inhabited worlds and "draw all men to themselves"; though they "stand at the door" of consciousness "and knock" and delight to come in to all who will "open the doors of their hearts"; although there does exist this intimate personal communion between the Creator Sons and their mortal creatures, nevertheless, mortal men have something from God himself which actually dwells within them; their bodies are the temples thereof.
(26.5) 1:4.3 When you are through down here, when your course has been run in temporary form on earth, when your trial trip in the flesh is finished, when the dust that composes the mortal tabernacle "returns to the earth whence it came"; then, it is revealed, the indwelling "Spirit shall return to God who gave it." There sojourns within each moral being of this planet a fragment of God, a part and parcel of divinity. It is not yet yours by right of possession, but it is designedly intended to be one with you if you survive the mortal existence.
(26.6) 1:4.4 We are constantly confronted with this mystery of God; we are nonplused by the increasing unfolding of the endless panorama of the truth of his infinite goodness, endless mercy, matchless wisdom, and superb character.
(26.7) 1:4.5 The divine mystery consists in the inherent difference which exists between the finite and the infinite, the temporal and the eternal, the time-space creature and the Universal Creator, the material and the spiritual, the imperfection of man and the perfection of Paradise Deity. The God of universal love unfailingly manifests himself to every one of his creatures up to the fullness of that creature's capacity to spiritually grasp the qualities of divine truth, beauty, and goodness.
(27.1) 1:4.6 To every spirit being and to every mortal creature in every sphere and on every world of the universe of universes, the Universal Father reveals all of his gracious and divine self that can be discerned or comprehended by such spirit beings and by such mortal creatures. God is no respecter of persons, either spiritual or material. The divine presence which any child of the universe enjoys at any given moment is limited only by the capacity of such a creature to receive and to discern the spirit actualities of the supermaterial world.
(27.2) 1:4.7 As a reality in human spiritual experience God is not a mystery. But when an attempt is made to make plain the realities of the spirit world to the physical minds of the material order, mystery appears: mysteries so subtle and so profound that only the faith-grasp of the God-knowing mortal can achieve the philosophic miracle of the recognition of the Infinite by the finite, the discernment of the eternal God by the evolving mortals of the material worlds of time and space. (Candace: there are at this time over 5 trillion evolutionary worlds of evolving God minded individuals.)
5. Personality of the Universal Father
(27.3) 1:5.1 Do not permit the magnitude of God, his infinity, either to obscure or eclipse his personality. "He who planned the ear, shall he not hear? He who formed the eye, shall he not see?" The Universal Father is the acme of divine personality; he is the origin and destiny of personality throughout all creation. God is both infinite and personal; he is an infinite personality. The Father is truly a personality, notwithstanding that the infinity of his person places him forever beyond the full comprehension of material and finite beings.
(27.4) 1:5.2 God is much more than a personality as personality is understood by the human mind; he is even far more than any possible concept of a superpersonality. But it is utterly futile to discuss such incomprehensible concepts of divine personality with the minds of material creatures whose maximum concept of the reality of being consists in the idea and ideal of personality. The material creature's highest possible concept of the Universal Creator is embraced within the spiritual ideals of the exalted idea of divine personality. Therefore, although you may know that God must be much more than the human conception of personality, you equally well know that the Universal Father cannot possibly be anything less than an eternal, infinite, true, good, and beautiful personality.
(27.5) 1:5.3 God is not hiding from any of his creatures. He is unapproachable to so many orders of beings only because he "dwells in a light which no material creature can approach." The immensity and grandeur of the divine personality is beyond the grasp of the unperfected mind of evolutionary mortals. He "measures the waters in the hollow of his hand, measures a universe with the span of his hand. It is he who sits on the circle of the earth, who stretches out the heavens as a curtain and spreads them out as a universe to dwell in." "Lift up your eyes on high and behold who has created all these things, who brings out their worlds by number and calls them all by their names"; and so it is true that "the invisible things of God are partially understood by the things which are made." Today, and as you are, you must discern the invisible Maker through his manifold and diverse creation, as well as through the revelation and ministration of his Sons and their numerous subordinates.
(28.1) 1:5.4 Even though material mortals cannot see the person of God, they should rejoice in the assurance that he is a person; by faith accept the truth which portrays that the Universal Father so loved the world as to provide for the eternal spiritual progression of its lowly inhabitants; that he "delights in his children." God is lacking in none of those superhuman and divine attributes which constitute a perfect, eternal, loving, and infinite Creator personality.
(28.2) 1:5.5 In the local creations (excepting the personnel of the superuniverses) God has no personal or residential manifestation aside from the Paradise Creator Sons who are the fathers of the inhabited worlds and the sovereigns of the local universes. If the faith of the creature were perfect, he would assuredly know that when he had seen a Creator Son he had seen the Universal Father; in seeking for the Father, he would not ask nor expect to see other than the Son. Mortal man simply cannot see God until he achieves completed spirit transformation and actually attains Paradise.
(28.3) 1:5.6 The natures of the Paradise Creator Sons do not encompass all the unqualified potentials of the universal absoluteness of the infinite nature of the First Great Source and Center, but the Universal Father is in every way divinely present in the Creator Sons. The Father and his Sons are one. These Paradise Sons of the order of Michael are perfect personalities, even the pattern for all local universe personality from that of the Bright and Morning Star down to the lowest human creature of progressing animal evolution. (Candace: Look for Hazel's piece recently,I Am the Way, The Truth and the Life: http://abundanthope.net/pages/hazel/I-Am-the-Way-the-Truth-and-the-Life.shtml )
(28.4) 1:5.7 Without God and except for his great and central person, there would be no personality throughout all the vast universe of universes. God is personality.
(28.5) 1:5.8 Notwithstanding that God is an eternal power, a majestic presence, a transcendent ideal, and a glorious spirit, though he is all these and infinitely more, nonetheless, he is truly and everlastingly a perfect Creator personality, a person who can "know and be known," who can "love and be loved," and one who can befriend us; while you can be known, as other humans have been known, as the friend of God. He is a real spirit and a spiritual reality.
(28.6) 1:5.9 As we see the Universal Father revealed throughout his universe; as we discern him indwelling his myriads of creatures; as we behold him in the persons of his Sovereign Sons; as we continue to sense his divine presence here and there, near and afar, let us not doubt nor question his personality primacy. Notwithstanding all these far-flung distributions, he remains a true person and everlastingly maintains personal connection with the countless hosts of his creatures scattered throughout the universe of universes. (for the adjuster indwelt human, thru that portion of your mind, the thought adjuster. Even until and after you have reached Paradise.)
(28.7) 1:5.10 The idea of the personality of the Universal Father is an enlarged and truer concept of God which has come to mankind chiefly through revelation. Reason, wisdom, and religious experience all infer and imply the personality of God, but they do not altogether validate it. Even the indwelling Thought Adjuster is prepersonal. The truth and maturity of any religion is directly proportional to its concept of the infinite personality of God and to its grasp of the absolute unity of Deity. The idea of a personal Deity becomes, then, the measure of religious maturity after religion has first formulated the concept of the unity of God.
(29.1) 1:5.11 Primitive religion had many personal gods, and they were fashioned in the image of man. Revelation affirms the validity of the personality concept of God which is merely possible in the scientific postulate of a First Cause and is only provisionally suggested in the philosophic idea of Universal Unity. Only by personality approach can any person begin to comprehend the unity of God. To deny the personality of the First Source and Center leaves one only the choice of two philosophic dilemmas: materialism or pantheism.
(29.2) 1:5.12 In the contemplation of Deity, the concept of personality must be divested of the idea of corporeality. A material body is not indispensable to personality in either man or God. The corporeality error is shown in both extremes of human philosophy. In materialism, since man loses his body at death, he ceases to exist as a personality; in pantheism, since God has no body, he is not, therefore, a person. The superhuman type of progressing personality functions in a union of mind and spirit. (you are NOT your body!-C)
(29.3) 1:5.13 Personality is not simply an attribute of God; it rather stands for the totality of the co-ordinated infinite nature and the unified divine will which is exhibited in eternity and universality of perfect expression. Personality, in the supreme sense, is the revelation of God to the universe of universes.
(29.4) 1:5.14 God, being eternal, universal, absolute, and infinite, does not grow in knowledge nor increase in wisdom. God does not acquire experience, as finite man might conjecture or comprehend, but he does, within the realms of his own eternal personality, enjoy those continuous expansions of self-realization which are in certain ways comparable to, and analogous with, the acquirement of new experience by the finite creatures of the evolutionary worlds.
(29.5) 1:5.15 The absolute perfection of the infinite God would cause him to suffer the awful limitations of unqualified finality of perfectness were it not a fact that the Universal Father directly participates in the personality struggle of every imperfect soul in the wide universe who seeks, by divine aid, to ascend to the spiritually perfect worlds on high. This progressive experience of every spirit being and every mortal creature throughout the universe of universes is a part of the Father's ever-expanding Deity-consciousness of the never-ending divine circle of ceaseless self-realization. (Candace: I bolded "worlds" above, because ALL beings live ON Worlds. They do not live in space. Heaven is NOT space up there. This is difficult for many to comprehend, and they will yell loudly that heaven is NOT planets. Well, YES IT IS! The worlds of heaven are specially constructed, but worlds they are. Heaven is not a place of some placid bliss. )
(29.6) 1:5.16 It is literally true: "In all your afflictions he is afflicted." "In all your triumphs he triumphs in and with you." His prepersonal divine spirit is a real part of you. The Isle of Paradise responds to all the physical metamorphoses of the universe of universes; the Eternal Son includes all the spirit impulses of all creation; the Conjoint Actor encompasses all the mind expression of the expanding cosmos. The Universal Father realizes in the fullness of the divine consciousness all the individual experience of the progressive struggles of the expanding minds and the ascending spirits of every entity, being, and personality of the whole evolutionary creation of time and space. And all this is literally true, for "in Him we all live and move and have our being."
6. Personality in the Universe
(29.7) 1:6.1 Human personality is the time-space image-shadow cast by the divine Creator personality. And no actuality can ever be adequately comprehended by an examination of its shadow. Shadows should be interpreted in terms of the true substance.
(30.1) 1:6.2 God is to science a cause, to philosophy an idea, to religion a person, even the loving heavenly Father. God is to the scientist a primal force, to the philosopher a hypothesis of unity, to the religionist a living spiritual experience. Man's inadequate concept of the personality of the Universal Father can be improved only by man's spiritual progress in the universe and will become truly adequate only when the pilgrims of time and space finally attain the divine embrace of the living God on Paradise.
(30.2) 1:6.3 Never lose sight of the antipodal viewpoints of personality as it is conceived by God and man. Man views and comprehends personality, looking from the finite to the infinite; God looks from the infinite to the finite. Man possesses the lowest type of personality; God, the highest, even supreme, ultimate, and absolute. Therefore did the better concepts of the divine personality have patiently to await the appearance of improved ideas of human personality, especially the enhanced revelation of both human and divine personality in the Urantian bestowal life of Michael, the Creator Son.
(30.3) 1:6.4 The prepersonal divine spirit which indwells the mortal mind carries, in its very presence, the valid proof of its actual existence, but the concept of the divine personality can be grasped only by the spiritual insight of genuine personal religious experience. Any person, human or divine, may be known and comprehended quite apart from the external reactions or the material presence of that person. (Candace: I marked "personal" above, because religion, as every master has taught on this plane, is PERSONAL, and can be in NO church. Your growth and spirituality can only be undertaken and experienced by YOU. There is NO person who can provide this FOR YOU. Only YOU can seek for yourself. Teachers can only teach, they cannot confer God upon you in any way. God IS within YOU already.)
(30.4) 1:6.5 Some degree of moral affinity and spiritual harmony is essential to friendship between two persons; a loving personality can hardly reveal himself to a loveless person. Even to approach the knowing of a divine personality, all of man's personality endowments must be wholly consecrated to the effort; halfhearted, partial devotion will be unavailing.
(30.5) 1:6.6 The more completely man understands himself and appreciates the personality values of his fellows, the more he will crave to know the Original Personality, and the more earnestly such a God-knowing human will strive to become like the Original Personality. You can argue over opinions about God, but experience with him and in him exists above and beyond all human controversy and mere intellectual logic. The God-knowing man describes his spiritual experiences, not to convince unbelievers, but for the edification and mutual satisfaction of believers.
(30.6) 1:6.7 To assume that the universe can be known, that it is intelligible, is to assume that the universe is mind made and personality managed. Man's mind can only perceive the mind phenomena of other minds, be they human or superhuman. If man's personality can experience the universe, there is a divine mind and an actual personality somewhere concealed in that universe.
(30.7) 1:6.8 God is spirit - spirit personality; man is also a spirit - potential spirit personality. Jesus of Nazareth attained the full realization of this potential of spirit personality in human experience; therefore his life of achieving the Father's will becomes man's most real and ideal revelation of the personality of God. Even though the personality of the Universal Father can be grasped only in actual religious experience, in Jesus' earth life we are inspired by the perfect demonstration of such a realization and revelation of the personality of God in a truly human experience.
7. Spiritual Value of the Personality Concept
(31.1) 1:7.1 When Jesus talked about "the living God," he referred to a personal Deity - the Father in heaven. The concept of the personality of Deity facilitates fellowship; it favors intelligent worship; it promotes refreshing trustfulness. Interactions can be had between nonpersonal things, but not fellowship. The fellowship relation of father and son, as between God and man, cannot be enjoyed unless both are persons. Only personalities can commune with each other, albeit this personal communion may be greatly facilitated by the presence of just such an impersonal entity as the Thought Adjuster.
(31.2) 1:7.2 Man does not achieve union with God as a drop of water might find unity with the ocean. Man attains divine union by progressive reciprocal spiritual communion, by personality intercourse with the personal God, by increasingly attaining the divine nature through wholehearted and intelligent conformity to the divine will. Such a sublime relationship can exist only between personalities.
(31.3) 1:7.3 The concept of truth might possibly be entertained apart from personality, the concept of beauty may exist without personality, but the concept of divine goodness is understandable only in relation to personality. Only a person can love and be loved. Even beauty and truth would be divorced from survival hope if they were not attributes of a personal God, a loving Father.
(31.4) 1:7.4 We cannot fully understand how God can be primal, changeless, all-powerful, and perfect, and at the same time be surrounded by an ever-changing and apparently law-limited universe, an evolving universe of relative imperfections. But we can know such a truth in our own personal experience since we all maintain identity of personality and unity of will in spite of the constant changing of both ourselves and our environment. (C- Constant change, oh my gosh, even in "heaven", even by those who live in heaven?" YES. how else could it be? Eternal life would be a terrible bore if not so.)
(31.5) 1:7.5 Ultimate universe reality cannot be grasped by mathematics, logic, or philosophy, only by personal experience in progressive conformity to the divine will of a personal God. Neither science, philosophy, nor theology can validate the personality of God. Only the personal experience of the faith sons of the heavenly Father can effect the actual spiritual realization of the personality of God. (C-I run into people all the time who think they have to give up free will. NO, to progress you use your free will obtained experientially to chose that which is RIGHT.)
(31.6) 1:7.6 The higher concepts of universe personality imply: identity, self-consciousness, self-will, and possibility for self-revelation. And these characteristics further imply fellowship with other and equal personalities, such as exists in the personality associations of the Paradise Deities. And the absolute unity of these associations is so perfect that divinity becomes known by indivisibility, by oneness. "The Lord God is one." Indivisibility of personality does not interfere with God's bestowing his spirit to live in the hearts of mortal men. Indivisibility of a human father's personality does not prevent the reproduction of mortal sons and daughters.
(31.7) 1:7.7 This concept of indivisibility in association with the concept of unity implies transcendence of both time and space by the Ultimacy of Deity; therefore neither space nor time can be absolute or infinite. The First Source and Center is that infinity who unqualifiedly transcends all mind, all matter, and all spirit.
(31.8) 1:7.8 The fact of the Paradise Trinity in no manner violates the truth of the divine unity. The three personalities of Paradise Deity are, in all universe reality reactions and in all creature relations, as one. Neither does the existence of these three eternal persons violate the truth of the indivisibility of Deity. I am fully aware that I have at my command no language adequate to make clear to the mortal mind how these universe problems appear to us. But you should not become discouraged; not all of these things are wholly clear to even the high personalities belonging to my group of Paradise beings. Ever bear in mind that these profound truths pertaining to Deity will increasingly clarify as your minds become progressively spiritualized during the successive epochs of the long mortal ascent to Paradise. (Candace: there is argument between christianity and Islam, in this regard. Islam honors the one God, Christianity honors god in three persons, except it's concept of the Trinity is terribly flawed. These one will delete each other on this planet if allowed, so bad is the mis understanding of God, and our thugs KNOW that, that is why they pit these two religions against each other.)
(32.1) 1:7.9 [Presented by a Divine Counselor, a member of a group of celestial personalities assigned by the Ancients of Days on Uversa, the headquarters of the seventh superuniverse, to supervise those portions of this forthcoming revelation which have to do with affairs beyond the borders of the local universe of Nebadon. I am commissioned to sponsor those papers portraying the nature and attributes of God because I represent the highest source of information available for such a purpose on any inhabited world. I have served as a Divine Counselor in all seven of the superuniverses and have long resided at the Paradise center of all things. Many times have I enjoyed the supreme pleasure of a sojourn in the immediate personal presence of the Universal Father. I portray the reality and truth of the Father's nature and attributes with unchallengeable authority; I know whereof I speak.]
