    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.

    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.

    The Urantia Papers on the Reason for Revelation (Part 4)

    in Religion

    The pursuit of knowledge constitutes science; the search for wisdom is philosophy; the love for God is religion; the hunger for truth is a revelation. Science is only satisfied with first causes, religion with supreme personality, and philosophy with unity. Revelation affirms that these three are one, and that all are good. In the spiritual experience of all personalities, always is it true that the real is the good and the good is the real.

    The Urantia Papers on the Reason for Revelation (Part 2)

    in Religion

    The proof that revelation is revelation is a straightforward fact of human experience. One can recognize that revelation actually synthesizes the apparently divergent sciences of nature and the theology of religion into a consistent and logical universe philosophy.  And true revelation never renders science unnatural, religion unreasonable, or philosophy illogical.

    The Urantia Papers on the Reason for Revelation (Part 3)

    in Religion

    Revelation is a technique whereby ages upon ages of time are saved in the necessary work of sorting and sifting the errors of evolution from the truths of spirit acquirement.  Science deals with facts; religion is concerned only with values. Through enlightened philosophy the mind endeavors to unite the meanings of both facts and values, thereby arriving at a concept of complete reality.

    The Urantia Papers on the Reason for Revelation (Part 1)

    in Religion

    Religious revelation is essential to the realization of world-wide brotherhood on Urantia. Even on normal worlds social brotherhood is not an easy accomplishment, and on our confused and disordered planet such an achievement will require a much longer time and necessitate far greater effort. The Urantia Papers, the fifth epochal revelation to our world, is an emergency measure, prepared for our spiritually isolated sphere.

    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 Fifth Epochal Revelation to Urantia (Part 7)

    in Religion

    The superhuman authors of The Urantia Papers inform us that the revelation of truth is very rigorously limited by the instructions of their superiors. Revelators must act in accordance with the instructions which form a part of their revelation mandate. They also state that the cosmology of this latest revelation is not inspired; they go on to define revelation and outline its immense value to our confused world.

    The Fifth Epochal Revelation to Urantia (Part 6)

    in Religion

    Part IV of The Urantia Book, "The Life and Teachings of Jesus," was sponsored by a commission of twelve midwayers acting under the supervision of a Melchizedek revelatory director. This Melchizedek of record was assigned by Gabriel, the Bright and Morning Star of Nebadon, to supervise the restatement of the life of Jesus of Nazareth. The midwayers were authorized to record their narrative by utilizing the lost manuscript of the Apostle Andrew and their own observations.
