    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!

    The Urantia Book: Did Angels write the Truth about LIFE as we know it?

    in Paranormal

    Friday, March 6th 10pm ET / pm CT / 7pm PT

    What is The Urantia Book?

    A revelation in book form, it is intended to help guide humankind into the next era of evolutionary progress. It provides answers to the big questions -

    Who are we? How did we get here? Where do we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going?

    These questions have puzzled humans for thousands of years and the answers have been masterfully revealed in this big blue book.

    The Urantia Book boldly claims to be a revelation of truth to our world from the headquarters of the Superuniverse. It is quite literally a work of genius, authored by beings whose IQs would be measured in the 1000's by our standards, delivered from beyond the world we know. Among other things, The Urantia Book may be the most powerful evidence ever that there is other intelligent life in the universe. One of the most profoundly inspiring, comforting tenets to be found in The Urantia Book is that all the universe is mobilized behind the effort to help humanity evolve. We are implored to understand that this evolution will transpire by way of us overcoming our fears and feelings of separation from God and each other, both collectively and individually. Though it describes human beings as the lowest form of creature able to recognize the existence of God, it also clearly emphasizes that there is no apparent limit to our destiny as we ascend toward our Creator after the termination of our mortal career.

    Anthony and Luci will speak to Halpert Katzen - Retired Attorney, Public Speaker and Educator, and Creator and Writer for UBTheNews.com. Mr. Katzen has written many works on the Urantia Book especially in comparing scientific discoveries to the works found in The Urantia Book.

    This will be an amazing and insightful discussion that you won't want to miss!

    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.

    Thought Adjusters—Relation to the Soul (Part 1)

    in Religion

    The concept of a soul and of an indwelling spirit is not new to Urantia; it has frequently appeared in the various systems of planetary beliefs.  Men have long believed that there is something growing within the human nature, something vital that is destined to endure beyond the short span of temporal life.

    The Supreme: God The Mother

    in Spirituality

    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!

    Thought Adjusters—Relation to Individual Mortals (Part 6)

    in Religion

    There is only an indirect relation between cosmic-circle attainment and actual spiritual religious experience; such attainments are reciprocal and therefore mutually beneficial.  Purely spiritual development may have little to do with planetary material prosperity, but circle attainment always augments the potential of human success and mortal achievement.

    Why Parental Representations To Designate Creator & Trinity Personalities?

    in Spirituality

    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.

    Thought Adjusters—Relation to Individual Mortals (Part 5)

    in Religion

    Every decision you make either impedes or facilitates the function of the Adjuster; likewise do these very decisions determine your advancement in the psychic circles of human achievement.  It is to the mind of perfect poise, housed in a body of clean habits, stabilized neural energies, and balanced chemical function that a maximum of light and truth can be imparted.

    A Lively Recap of The Parliament of World Religions

    in Spirituality

    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
