Topic: Support Community-Perfect Relationship on Earth
Group: Arcadia TeaM
TR: George B.
Prayer: Dear Father, thank you for this group here gathered. Thank you for all of the Adjusters who are in this room, which are gifts from you. Thank you for the teacher JarEl. Please help us to be attuned to what he has to tell us and what he has to teach us and inspire our minds to ask interesting and effective questions. Thank you for everything in Michael’s name, Amen.
JAREL: TR, George: Good evening, it is I, your teacher JarEl. It is good to be back again and I welcome those who are here for the first time.
JAREL: TR, George: You are all certainly getting used to this notion of survival after death. For many of you it has become a normal thing to think about after you die. But there are many things to look forward to while you are still alive, many new discoveries that you can make while you are still here on earth. It is simply a matter of practice on your part to undertake the challenge of unlocking these secrets. One of them is your communion with God. It is the silencing of your mind and becoming attuned with your Thought Adjuster and that is a very sacred secret that many of you should uncover.
And many other secrets that you can also unlock exist all around you with your fellow human beings, with the way you communicate with them – not just through words but through mind. You have the potential to communicate with each other with no words, but you are so used to verbal communication that you have forgotten the simple sense of intuition, the simple sense of knowing, of understanding, just with a look or with a feeling.
These secrets are locked because you have locked them yourself. In your lives they have told you that these things are impossible – that these things do not exist. And in your attempt to become normal, you accepted the norm of society, and in doing so you have forgotten many of the things that you used to be able to do.
But the good news is that you can regain all of this once more. It is not hidden from you. It is no secret. It is plainly available to you if you were brilliant enough to look and to seek out. The problem that exists in attempting to search for sensibility, is that there hardly is a support structure to help you encourage yourself and to show you the way. This lacking of support structure makes it nearly impossible for you to find the tools by which you can accomplish this ability. But nonetheless, it is there for you to find. And if enough of you were to find a way to allow, not just this, but many other abilities that are potential in you, then you can begin to create a community of like-minded individuals that would represent a generation of the future.
I tell you all this simply because it is within your grasp to do this. It is not beyond you. And I can understand that you would not like to spend the rest of your lives searching for this, for it is difficult to achieve when you do not have the right tools. There are certainly other things that you can occupy yourself with, but nonetheless, these abilities exist. And when you are all ready, there will be much help to expedite the process by which you attain such abilities.
This is all part of a Correcting Time for humans have forgotten much of what they could do in the past. You have relied too much on your technology and on what you see. You no longer rely as much on the things unseen and the things that you feel. You have thrown yourself off to the world and created walls around you for that is what the world tells you to do. But by doing so, you have sealed off any opportunity for you to find these sorts of communication that will not only bring you closer to God, but closer to your fellow humans. It is not beyond you to find perfect relationships on this planet. And utilizing all your sensibilities for these relationships should be one of your utmost duties. Are there any questions here tonight?
Rey: JarEl I have a question if I may. In the book, in the marriage papers, Urantia mortals are described as, by fact, being bisexual. In conversation with some other readers, some contend that what is trying to be portrayed is the fact that we are a planet of two sexes, others contend that the word bisexual doesn’t mean what it does today. I am asking this because last week we touched on the subject of taking care of our youth who may be confused for whatever reason. Could you shed some light on, I guess, how the celestials, how they, I mean, are we in fact a bisexual race? I mean, to the degree that, you know, I guess, it suits a person, but could you shed some light on that for us, for me?
JAREL: TR, George: I will first tell you what the book refers to. When it was written the terminology referred to there being two types of sexes on your planet. But now the terminology has changed, it has a new meaning for the people of Urantia. And this subject still remains very much controversial and it is something that you, as a people, must come to terms with.
But I will tell you this – that God loves all of you no matter what. And for anything that you do on this planet, He is most forgiving and understanding. And the same goes for the rest of the universe, for we take God’s lead. So we are not judgmental and we do not condemn. Nor do we see or feel that your planet should be a certain way. We leave that up to you to decide. They can only be examples of how to love one another. It is up to the people of Urantia to follow these examples and be compassionate towards one another. Remember what the Master said – what you do to the least of them you do to me. Are there any other questions?
Ernie: I have a question JarEl. Usually in communion with my Adjuster I am receiving lessons about covenants. And in that realm, if you could elaborate on covenants or agreements between mortals and Adjusters and how those lead to – well, what you were talking about, discoveries, closeness to Father and community type things?
JAREL: TR, George: Well, a covenant is usually an agreement on your part to follow a certain way, and usually it is a righteous way. It is a promise that you give to God or to your Thought Adjuster, however you want to see it. And this promise is something that you yourself try to keep. And only you can decide whether or not you can keep this covenant. But God does honor any promise that you make and He is most understanding if you fail in keeping such promises and He is always willing to give you a second chance.
But the fact that you create a promise shows God that you are at least willing to try. And when you create these covenants many opportunities for you to grow come your way. So, you should be prepared for these challenges, that is part of the agreement in creating this promise. You should not enter into an agreement until you see the fine print. And this fine print includes challenges that will strain you sometimes, but not break you. God never gives you more than you can handle. He gives you just enough for you to rise up to that occasion and to show your valor and courage.
The promise that you make is more a promise to yourself even as it’s directed to God, it is still for yourself, for your self-improvement. God is forever patient and it really wouldn’t matter that much to Him if you made the promise now or 50 years from now. All that matters is that you made it and that you are willing to try. Of course, the sooner you go into this sort of agreement, the better it is for you and your entire life for you would have surpassed certain challenges and it is very intelligent of you to take on such challenges and promises at your age. For many leave these things until the very end when it is already too difficult to change. So, like I said, God honors all promises made. Are there any other questions?
Stella: Well, I’ll ask the question. You say that God never gives you more than you can handle. Well what about all these people who are tortured, the children who are hurt and abused and killed or tortured? The children have nothing to say about it, they could not help themselves. So how does that fit that God didn’t? If God gives you freewill also and these children are tortured – I don’t see the connection that God doesn’t give you more than you can bear. That’s not true.
JAREL: : TR, George: What you must remember is that in order for God to give you freewill, everyone else must have their freewill as well. And these tortures are not designed by God. They are designed by men, men with evil hearts. And God does not interfere in these freewill choices that evil men do. It is very sad to see this, but one must not blame God for all the evil in the world.
Stella: But what happens to these evil ones after they die? If they just say they are sorry is that enough, are they then forgiven?
JAREL: : TR, George: They must go through a complete transformational change in order to continue. It is not an easy path for them. Nor is it easy for any of you. The victims of these tortures have it just as hard too, but they are more able to overcome much of what had happened to them. They are more willing to forgive once they have crossed over. All of those emotional pains that they have carried with them for all their lives get washed away. And it is most touching to see these victims forgive their torturers for they do come to terms with this and they do ultimately forgive those who tortured them.
But it is very say to see these people who had tortured. It is sad to see them never able to forgive themselves for the wrongs they’ve done, for they do carry with them this horror and it plagues them for a very long time. So when they hurt someone, they are hurting themselves, they are chipping away at their soul until there is nothing left. And it is very difficult for them to forgive themselves and many times they wish that they were the ones that were tortured instead.
There is justice in the universe my dear Stella. It is simply a matter of fact that you have not experienced eternal justice that makes it almost impossible for you to understand it. Once you have witnessed this yourself, you will begin to see how the universe works in a well ordered manner. And all the things that happen here on Urantia will be like a distant dream of a savage world. The universe is not so savage. Are there any other questions?
Ernie: I have one in that same perspective…would it be true to say from our perspective that as we view that torture and as that person cannot take it at a certain point that the Father stops that torture from happening? And that we do not see that because of our finite-ness and our perspective from that and also that if we are in close proximity to such a thing it is perhaps our duty to somehow intervene with that.
JAREL: : TR, George: You are correct on both points and I will address the last one first: That God forever seeks to use you in His stead to accomplish His will, but you must be willing to act and to be selfless, to be a hand of God that He may work through you in this world. And in the same vein He uses others to accomplish His will and to ease the suffering of those that are being suffered upon. And although He cannot interfere in the will of man, He can nudge men, good men, to come to the rescue of such victims.
But never does He directly interfere, but He may see it so there are opportunities to discover these victims before more harm is brought on them. The sad thing is that many do not follow these nudges and there are many victims who remain un-rescued and it is very sad. But that is the way your world is right now and the best that any of you can do is to be examples of what good people are like and also to follow the nudges of God so that He may work through you in times like these.
Are there any last questions?
JAREL: Very well, I would very much like to see all of you once again in four weeks. Until then, goodnight.
All: Goodnight JarEl and thank you.
