Topic: Meditating on World Events
Group: Arcadia TeaM
TR: George B.
Prayer: Larry: Dear Father thank you for this day and thank you for our small group. We pray for peace in this world. We pray for the healing of our planet and its people. Thank you for all of the blessings that you have bestowed on each one of us. Help us to be good stewards of those blessings. We love you. In Michael’s name, Amen.
JAREL: TR, George: Good evening. It is I, your teacher JarEl,
JAREL: It is good to be back again.
JAREL: It has been quite a while since we’ve last seen each other, at least I have seen all of you. And during that time that we’ve been apart perhaps you have taken the opportunity to observe the happenings that are occurring all over your world; observe human nature and human spirits, observe your own reaction to events that transpire and contemplate the significance behind all of this. Perhaps you have meditated on these major events, perhaps not.
But given your record and your interest in spiritual things, I would bet that you have contemplated on many of these things and that you have come to some sort of conclusion as to how everything is related to each other, how everything is connected and how God works his will through mankind. I will argue that you have contemplated these and many things for you do see the relativity within all that transpires on this planet. You do see how we are all connected and how we all affect one another in what we say and what we think and what we do.
And in your mind you are gathering all this information and beginning to contemplate the power that exists within each one of you; this very real power that has a definite effect on this planet. And it is up to you whether or not you use this power for good or for evil, for that is your choice. But given your tendencies towards things of a spiritual nature, I would assume that you would use it for good. But be aware that you have this tremendous power to affect others and that you are all truly connected with one another.
And it is touching how you do care for one another. And just as you care for people you’ve never met, we of the rest of the universe care about you, small Urantia, and all the people that are being born here. We care about your futures, about your lives here and about your career in the universe. We embrace you as brothers when you arrive on the Mansion worlds and we cheer you on as you continue onward towards higher planes of existence. You are our brothers and sisters.
You are one of us and we are one of you. This brotherhood of man that you so wish to be fulfilled is greater than this planet. The brotherhood throughout the universe is the next step of thought within the Urantia community. Do not limit yourselves to just thinking about your human brothers and sisters when there is a whole universe that is ready to embrace you. And we truly are ready, we’ve been waiting for all of you to get motivated and to continue to improve this planet so that we may reveal ourselves even more to you.
Future generations will benefit from more revelation for they will benefit from your struggles in grappling with the higher concepts of existence and God. Ideas and ideals that you will pass down to future generations and that they will study and understand. These future generations will not only benefit from your knowledge and wisdom, they will also benefit from new revelation that only they will be prepared to receive. Your generation has already received this great revelation called The Urantia Book. And in this book you have been given numerous and numerous revelations that will take two generations to truly understand, perhaps even more. The point is that from this study that all of you will do, you will promote new ideas, ideas that will carry forward into future generations. Ideas that will prepare the young minds to receive even greater revelation.
And this is how the human mind and knowledge works. You gather this knowledge here and now and study it, but you must pass it along for this knowledge will be lost if you only keep it to yourselves. And that is why we approve of study groups where you discuss ideas and promote new ideas, new thought patterns and new propositions. Eventually everything will be revealed to you. But the exciting part is discovering this new idea and having it later confirmed by us. And sometimes your ideas differ just slightly from what is true. And this is a great adventure that many of you have embarked upon.
Not only gathering the knowledge of God and the history of the universe and discovering God within you, but also coming up with new ideas, new thoughts, finding God in the least likely place and sharing that with your brothers and sisters. That is the road by which you will travel and continue to travel all throughout your universe career as you discover new insights into the nature of God. And I am excited for all of you for you are just beginning this great adventure and one day we will all share an adventure together for we will all be one with God.
JAREL: Are there any questions here tonight?
Lucille: How can we be all one with God?
JAREL: : TR, George: As you mature in spirit, as you grow towards Paradise , you will have this knowledge in you. When you become one with God and others like you have also become one with God you will have that shared knowledge and that shared experience. From there a new adventure can begin for nothing is ever over when it comes to God, nothing is ever fully discovered, nothing is ever finished. It all continues onward and upward and inward.
JAREL: Are there any other questions? Very well, I would like to thank all of you who came tonight. I wish you a good month and I will see you next month.
All: Goodnight JarEl and thank you.
