    Dr Sadler And The Urantia Book With Sioux Oliva PhD

    in Spirituality

    This week we interview with Sioux Oliva on her new book, Dr. Sadler And The Urantia Book. Sioux is an American historian and lecturer. She earned her Ph.D. in History from the University of Southern California in 1999. She managed the Theoquest.com Urantia project for Lyn and Norman Lear. In addition she helped Mrs. Robert F. Kennedy to organize her personal papers, designed a research scheme for the Estate of Marilyn Monroe; catalogued thousands of documents found in Grey Gardens for Sally Quinn and Ben Bradlee; and did research for The Getty Museum, The City of Los Angeles, and The Autry Museum of the American West. She is an avid student of The Urantia Book and uniquely qualified to research and write this book. 


    Sometime between 1911 and 1923, Dr. William S. Sadler said he was visited by a group of celestial beings who communicated with him through a sleeping (essentially unconscious) man. Both Sadler and his wife, Lena, were highly respected Chicago physicians. They confirmed that they attended approximately 250 late night sessions in which the beings used the unconscious man to reveal profound religious, scientific and philosophic truths to them. They never revealed the identity their patient. In the decade that followed, the Sadler’s held regular meetings in their home with friends and colleagues to explore the information coming through. Many questions were asked and answered as a result. This process culminated in 1955 with the publishing of The Urantia Book, which claims to be a revelation to humankind.


    Ms. Oliva's book explores the professional lives and spiritual pursuits of the Sadler’s and especially the extraordinary role that Dr. Sadler played in bringing this amazing revelation to the world. She draws surprising conclusions about the identity of the “sleeping subject." This show promises to be lively, interesting and perhaps even a bit controversial. Please join us!

    Feed Your Soul: The Adjuster and the Soul - Paper 111 - From The Urantia Book

    in Spirituality

    This week on the Cosmic Citizen we continue our exploration of the God within and the Urantia Paper we started two weeks ago, Paper 111. 


    The ideas to be covered: The soul is neither the human mind nor the divine spirit that dwells within the mind. Material mind is the arena in which we live, make decisions, choose or forsake God, and survive or destroy ourselves. Material evolution provides us with a body and the Father endows us with spirit reality, but it is by mind that we live or die. The mortal mind is merely a temporary system lent to us for use during our material lives. Our evolving souls will faithfully portray the decisions made with the minds we have been given..


    An Adjuster's work is spiritual, but is accomplished in the intellectual realm. The mind is the ship, the Adjuster is the pilot, and human will is the captain. With mortal consent, the faithful pilot will safely carry his captain across the barriers of time and the handicaps of space to the source of divine mind, even to the Paradise Father.


    The mortal career is an education. It is not so much what we comprehend, as what we desire to comprehend that insures our survival. It is not what our minds are like, as what our minds are striving to be like that constitutes spirit identification. What we are today is not as important as what we are becoming.


    Doing the will of God is the willingness to share the inner life with God. Peace in this life, survival in death, perfection in the next life, and service in eternity are all achieved when the human will chooses to become subject to the Father's will.


    Uncertainty with security is the essence of the Paradise adventure. God lives in us and trusts himself to us, and we live in him and learn to trust ourselves to him. We may not be certain of the details of the coming events of our lives, but we are always secure in the infinite love and compassion of our Father.


    We hope you can join us!

    UrantiaUniversity Inc. Officially Launches An Introduction to The Urantia Book

    in Spirituality

    The original concept for UrantiaUniversity envisioned an online school that would offer a step-by-step, comprehensive personal study program of each paper in The Urantia Book with opportunities for person-to-person contact and collective study. 


    In the fall of 2009 a Board of Trustees formed to initiate the process of incorporating UrantiaUniversity and to develop and solidify the legal, educational and technological foundation of the organization. Before long, UrantiaUniversity, Inc. was officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization, exempt from Federal income tax under section 503(c)(3).


    The vision of UrantiaUniversity, Inc. has since evolved to not only help serious students to explore, discern, and actualize the cosmic truth and knowledge in The Urantia Book, but also to encourage research and study in the many related disciplines of science, cosmology, religion, philosophy, and the social sciences for the purpose of illuminating, augmenting and expounding the connections between the content of The Urantia Book and these fields of human knowledge. Beyond these, UrantiaUniversity’s mission is built on developing advanced philosophers, teachers and leaders with cosmic ideals who are capable of effectively meeting the challenges of the 21st century and beyond. 


    UrantiaUniversity recently launched their first online class: A General Introduction to The Urantia Book, by way of a thumbnail sketch, essays  to introduce The Urantia Book to the inquisitive new or veteran reader, taught by our own Andre Radatus. This first class of 50 students filled up within weeks, but this is just the beginning and there are more great classes to come. Please join us as we discuss the origins, mission and future plans of UrantiaUniversity with Andre, John and Elizabeth Callahan and other key pioneers in this unprecedented undertaking and help us celebrate this amazing milestone with them.

  • The History of The Urantia Book With Larry Mullins - REPRISE

    in Spirituality

    In preparation of our upcoming interviews with Sioux Oliva, author of the new book, Dr. Sadler and The Urantia Book, we are replaying the show in which Paula Thompson and Christilyn Biek-Larson interviewed author and long-time student of The Urantia Book, Larry Mullins, on his book entitled, A History of The Urantia Papers; now in its 2nd edition.


    We are taking a holiday break. This show is an archived REPRISE edition of The Cosmic Citizen. Please do not call in.


    This show explores in depth issues concerning the Urantia Book's origins. Larry also poses and answers caller's questions such as:


    Dr. Meredith Sprunger thought The Urantia Book was a hoax when he first saw it. What changed his mind?   What did Dr. Sprunger and his team of 11 ministers discover when they visited 533?


    What part did Dr. Lena Sadler play in the revelation? How did the first contact with celestial beings happen? What did Dr. Sadler learn when he hypnotized the sleeping subject?  How did the forum get started? How did the forum get involved in the process? What did the Sadlers do that triggered the first written manuscript?


    What prompted Dr. Sadler to test the celestial beings who were talking through the sleeping subject with difficult questions?


    Does anyone really know how the Urantia Papers were materialized?  Why was the original written manuscript destroyed?  Why were the original typed manuscripts destroyed after the type was set for the Urantia Book?


    Why did the revelators use so much human information?


    When did the Jesus Papers come through? How?


    Why were the revelators displeased with the forum?


    Was The Urantia Book intended for a later time? When?


    When was permission given to publish the UB?


    Showtime is 12:00 PM Eastern Time; 9:00 AM Pacific Time.

    Feed Your Soul: The Adjuster and the Soul - Paper 111 - From The Urantia Book

    in Spirituality

    This week on the Cosmic Citizen we continue our exploration of the God within each human being, the Thought Adjuster.

    The Urantia Book—Thought Made Word (Part 3)

    in Religion

    Select mortals are chosen for the reserve corps of destiny, trained for service in various activities of world affairs, and held in readiness to act in possible planetary emergencies.  A destiny reservist functioned as a contact personality when the fifth epochal revelation was materialized in the English language on Urantia.  These favorably constituted humans, mostly unheralded, help to advance and maintain spiritual civilization.

    The Urantia Book—Thought Made Word (Part 2)

    in Religion

    Contact between a secondary midwayer and a destiny reservist’s indwelling Thought Adjuster can circumvent the handicaps of Urantia’s isolation from the communication circuits.  The Adjuster of the human being thus used to communicate portions of the fifth epochal revelation was highly experienced, and it was indeed fortunate that this mortal remained consciously quite unconcerned about the entire procedure.

    The Urantia Book—Thought Made Word (Part 1)

    in Religion

    The United Midwayers of Urantia are organized for service on the planet in several categories. They are invaluable to the seraphim who work for the uplift of the various races of mankind. Their chief work today is that of unperceived personal-liaison associates of those men and women who constitute the planetary reserve corps of destiny. It was the midwayers who initiated the process that resulted in the Urantia Revelation.

    Exploring the Inhabited Worlds - Paper 49 of The Urantia Book

    in Spirituality

    This week will explore Paper 49 of The Urantia Book - The Inhabited Worlds. 


    An article on the NASA site in January of this year reported this: The centuries-old quest for other worlds like our Earth has been rejuvenated by the intense excitement and popular interest surrounding the discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting other stars. There is now clear evidence for substantial numbers of three types of exoplanets; gas giants, hot-super-Earths in short period orbits, and ice giants. The challenge now is to find terrestrial planets (i.e., those one half to twice the size of the Earth), especially those in the "habitable zone" of their stars where liquid water might exist on the surface of the planet.

    The Kepler Telescope's mission is specifically designed to survey our region of the Milky Way galaxy to discover hundreds of planets in or near the "habitable zone" and determine how many stars in our galaxy that might have such planets. New studies reveal that the Milky Way hosts at least 17 billion Earth-size alien planets, and probably many more. Modern astronomers have determined that about 17 percent of stars in our galaxy harbor an Earth-size exoplanet in a close orbit.


    It has been said that every law of probability states that there is LIFE on other planets. The Urantia Book stated this unequivocally in the 1930's, saying there are not just billions of inhabited worlds in space, there are actually trillions of inhabited worlds. It further states that there are some in close proximity to our precious blue marble of a planet. The Urantia Book reveals so much about life on other worlds and it's teachings are intriguing and inspiring.


    We've invited one of our favorite exoplanet aficionados, Lt. Col Donald Ware to call in and join un is this discussion. As many know, Don is a highly respected member of the UFO community. We'd like to hear from you too. Please tune in.
