SORT BY Relevancy
Nadi Burton, our guest this week on Cosmic Citizen, was born in Harlem New York and raised in a Christian household. He rebelled as a teen and ran away from home and though he spent some years as a troubled and confused youth, at the ripe old age of eighteen, he made what was for him the supreme decision to find God; It has become the driving ambition of his life.
Nadi became hungry to find and study everything he could to give him a clearer revelation of the Divine Father. At first his spiritual journey took him toward music as a vehicle of expression. This opened doors into a variety of religions and places of worship. He became a serious student of many disciplines, such as metaphysics, parapsychology, new age philosophy, angelic revelations and most of the world religions. It was during this period that he discovered The Urantia Book. For Nadi, cultivating his relationship with God was a deeply personal experience. The book provided the answers he had prayed for, especially to know and be closer to his Universal Father.
He began the study and practice of many health and healing modalities and therapies, learning to live God's love in his life and with others. He desired to be like Christ in spirit but still felt painfully inadequate. For decades he studied the Urantia teachings completely in private.
Finally, after 30 years his sense of gratitude for the revelation took on a desire to write a blog to share it with others. Three years ago Nadi started a Urantia study group in his home in Harlem. He also began to share his music and read the book online in a weekly podcast called, "Urantia Speaks."
He will be sharing his burning desire to know God, the Universal Father, to become like him, and to do his will. Nadi's commitment to the teachings of The Urantia Book, his desire to share, his gratitude for his spiritual destiny, is his supreme commitment to a journey of fusion with the divine spark of God.

This week we will start with a recording of our meditation for Extraterrestrial and Higher Dimensional contact that we did in Aswan Egypt on Sierra's Sacred Journey's tour in October of 2015. Plan to join her for the next tour in April 2016. It was an amazing adventure. Sierra may be able to join us for the later part of the program to talk a bit about our mystical experiences in Egypt. We will also welcome your calls during the second hour about your own experiences during the meditation, or on similar outings.
I encourage you to download and use this meditation as a template for your own group field outings, and after a couple of times you can adapt the meditation to whatever suites your group the best. If you are in the colder climates, you and your group can even practice this indoors this winter, you can go anywhere in consciousness, so being indoors doesn't matter. When the weather warms up in your area, your group will be all ready and practiced for a nice field outing under the stars. For best results at seeing a UFO I suggest you find a relatively remote site with a good view of the sky, no bright lights, and at least a half mile from other houses if possible.
I will also post just the Meditation Audio on my website: www.EvolutionThroughContact.com so that you can download just the meditation for your groups use.
To call in or listen via phone, call 1-646-478-3085, and if you have a question or comment, please press 1 to raise your hand.

This radio program is designed to present the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with simplicity to win the lost. In addition, we endeavor to bring Hope and Encouragement to the Body of Christ.
The program is hosted by Minister Mennie Morrison and is sponsored by the ministry of Blessed To Be A Blessing Outreach Ministries, Inc. Evangelist Joseph Morrison is the President and CEO of BTBAB. We will have special guests joining us from time to time in helping us proclaim the Good News of the Gospel. This month Minister Mennie will continue her teaching series entitled "Are You Living Like A Kingdom Citizen?" and this episode will be Part II.
We are grateful for this wonderful opportunity to have this avenue to share the Word of God and we don't take it lightly or for granted. Our sincere prayer is that all those that will tune in to the program will be enriched in their walk with the Lord and that many will even come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. We give God all the Glory and Honor for what He is doing in our lives and what He will continue to do as we trust Him
What does a citizen look like? Am I misrepresenting my homeland or being an ambassador?
This week on Cosmic Citizen (www.blogtalkradio.com/cosmiccitizen) we will be talking about the recent Parliament of World Religions which took place in Salt Lake City UTAH a few weeks ago. There were more than 100 Urantia Book Students present at the Parliament with several booths. Among them were representatives from: The Urantia Foundation, The Urantia Book Fellowship, The UAI, Truthseekers, 1God.com and United Urantia Family & Urantia Sacred Arts. Their may be others we don't know of, so if you were there, please to call in and share your experience. Sadly, none of the hosts of CC were able to be there for various reasons and we were disappointed, so we would dearly love to live vicariously through your sharing.
The Parliament covered many interesting social issues that are important to religionists, such as, Climate Change, Hate Speech, War and Violence, Income Inequality, Human Rights, Women's Dignity, Emerging Leaders and Indigenous Peoples. Some thought the event was too focused on social issues. There were speakers there like Jane Goodall, Karen Armstrong, Michael Beckwith, Marianne Williamson, and one of our favorite quests on CC, Brian McClaren. There were nearly 10,000 religionists from all over the globe in attendance! We've lined up a nice group of Urantia Book students who attended to call in this week, some who went to the Parliament for the first time and some who have attended several times. We'll hope to get their impressions and highlights and hear about what moved them and the people they met.
If you went to the Parliament or not, you will no doubt love hearing the lively reports and thoughtful feedback from various callers who went. Please call us too at 646.716.8158
SCIENCE EDUCATORS....CITIZEN SCIENCE AND BAT CONSERVATION
It's BAT WEEK and Rob Mies from The Organization for Bat Conservation wants you and your students involved. Learn all about it.
Presented by DEFINED STEM
This week we continue our discussion on the parental nature of God, more especially the concept of God the Mother based on The Urantia Book's teaching of the Supreme.
We've invited to consummate teachers and Urantian scholars to share their thoughts with us on this topic of the Mother Supreme. Dr. Chris Halvorson, who will be with us for the entire show and Mr. David Kulieke, who can spend part of the show with us.
Dr. Halovorson says this about the Supreme, "Finally, it has been revealed that the Supreme is the evolving womb of finite creation: The Finite Upholder (evolutionary-experiential deity) and the Universal Mother of all evolutionary creatures." Even a casual acquaintance with Chris' writings reveals that he has keen tremendous insights on God the Mother.
Chris Halvorson has a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Colorado Boulder and worked as a scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder for 24 years. He discovered The Urantia Book in 1990 and started leading a weekly study group in 1995. He founded Perfecting Horizons Institute (PHI) in 2013. PHI is the educational outreach of Perfecting Horizons, Inc., a nonprofit corporation that serves inquisitive-minded people from around the world, challenging them to discover fresh big-picture insights and new ways of thinking about the revelation.
David Kulieke is a third generation reader. His family members were students of the Urantia teachings, long before there was a Urantia Book. David has contemplated these concepts and studied them with other sincere seekers for most of his life. David is currently the Chair of the Fellowship's Education Committee and at the Summer Study Session last year he lead a packed workshop entitled, "Our Relationship with God the Father: Knowing Him as Our Universe Father and the Supreme as Our Universe Mother."
This should be a lively episode!
How crimes can impact a non-citizen status
Some crimes can get a non-US citizen (“N-USC”) deported. It is the conviction of certain crime or the admission to certain crimes that makes the N-USC inadmissible to the United States (US). When a N-USC is inadmissible, it can mean one of two things. First, a person was admitted to the US in some status (student, lawful permanent resident, and/or visitor status to name a few), but after the commission and conviction or admission to the crime that person becomes inadmissible and absent a waiver may not be able to get a green card or hold onto the green card or other status. Second, inadmissible also means that a person is at a port of entry and based on some crime and/or other violation of the US laws (s)he is not allowed to enter the US. When there is a crime, fraud and/or misrepresentation, sometimes a waiver may correct the problem. Some crimes and or misrepresentation cannot be cured with a waiver. A few examples are: sexual assault of minors, some other sexual assault crimes, domestic assault, claims to be a United States citizen (USC), killing someone to name a few. Sometimes two or more crimes involving moral turpitude (CIMT) can impact your immigration status.

The Parental Nature of God:
This week, in the vein of the shows we did on Divine Fatherhood and Motherhood, we will explore why the Urantia Book uses such parental or gender specific designations in its descriptions of Deity when we are told that there is no sex/gender (as we understand it) involved with the First Source and Center or the Trinity personalities. Why is it important to think of God and God's deity associates in terms like these? Is it really necessary to relate to to deity in this way in order to understand these personalities better or more personally?
The first Paper of the book is called The Universal Father and the last sentence of the book states, "When all is said and done, the Father idea is still the highest human concept of God."
Urantia quotes to consider:
(6:8.1) Concerning identity, nature, and other attributes of personality, the Eternal Son is the full equal, the perfect complement, and the eternal counterpart of the Universal Father. In the same sense that God is the Universal Father, the Son is the Universal Mother. And all of us, high and low, constitute their universal family.
(174:1.3) The parent is able to view the immaturity of the child in the light of the more advanced parental maturity, the riper experience of the older partner. With the earthly child and the heavenly Father, the divine parent possesses infinity and divinity of sympathy and capacity for loving understanding. Divine forgiveness is inevitable; it is inherent and inalienable in God's infinite understanding, in his perfect knowledge of all that concerns the mistaken judgment and erroneous choosing of the child. Divine justice is so eternally fair that it unfailingly embodies understanding mercy.
Please join us as we continue to discuss the parental nature of God and gender specific language about God. If you have thoughts, ideas or quotes to share please call.
