Daniel Alderfer, introduction
« on: July 14, 2016, 01:38:01 PM »
In the interest of setting an example for all, I am posting my bio, as almost all introductions were lost at the resetting of the Serara. Org site, several weeks ago. Please consider posting with me so others can read of our path and journey, as it adds very much to weld this highly purposed group together. Some that don't have personal pictures on your profile, I would incourage to do so, again for more personal relating.

14 July 2016, Las Vegas, NV.

A little over three years ago was introduced to Urantia Book through a friend of 20 years, in the small town of Carbondale Colo. where, there and in the Aspen Area, was a general contractor for residential and commercial construction about 40 Years.   Was very excited about this new treasure and being retired, read it almost non stop in about 4 months then went back and read section 4 again then read over again many sections, I also read the history of the Urantia book by Sprunger twice, read the condensed Urantia book, "The Urantia Revelation" by Malcolm Locke, [Excellent  in my opinion] then read the five books by Harold Sherman and his wife, called "The Sherman dairies "of their adventures attending at the weekly Forum that met each Sunday, in Chicago at 533 Diversie, parkway, Dr. Sadlers residence, during the period of 1940 through 45, Those five books in my opinion are very helpful also about the history and delivery and birthing of the manuscript.

My journey then was through the 1111 angels site of Renowned George Bernard an industrialist and healer in Australia who wrote the three books, "The search for 1111, The Anatomy of the half way realm, and In the service of 11:11" all very excellent about the Midwayer Angels, 1111 platoon, active all over the earth and in Australia, [doing awesome works of service to those on Urantia,]  All these books are the experiences of George as he was helped and educated by the midway Angels. The other three books that were very shaping for me are the assembled conversations with Michael and Nebadonia, called :"The Adventures of being Human, book one and two" and the third book of very very matchless conversations of the thought adjuster of one with the pen name of Lytske called "The guiding light within" that to me was very transformative. I also copied in long hand most of the story of The Lucifer rebellion and aftermath and manifesto itself because I could see the subtle sophistries were truly something to understand up one side and down the other as I had swallowed a bunch of them myself.

Was born in the Western Pennsylvania town of Mt Pleasant about 40 miles east of Pittsburg, in 1946, youngest of five boys, Father a lay pastor and bookstore manager for the local Mennonite publishing house, Mother a registered nurse trained at LA Junta Colo. We lived on six acres with chickens, milk cow, sheep, bees, grapes, orchard and large garden. At age 17 went to Alaska, worked there then went to Hawaii where I worked and then with a friend went on motorcycles to Mazatlan Mex. where I was drafted, into the Army, it was 1966.  Was sent to Germany as a tank crewman for two years. At this time was having a strained relationship with my dad as our family had always been conscientious objectors. I was patriotic, wasn't in the least interested in spiritual things, so my choice was clear.

The next 25 years was a member in the Sabbath Keeping, World wide church of God, Married at 21, now with three grown children. Eventually became a home grown assistant minister, until my divorce after 25 years. Until finding the Urantia Book was in consternation about many things, that now have become much clearer and understood. The time on the Forum, [since June 2015] has been the absolute best of my life, Began to hear my Adjuster very clearly after some months, and at the same time, the close up relationships we are party to with Celestial Family speaking daily through Ron Besser especially and many fellow members is, how shall I put this, absolutely the most precious and remarkable experience it is possible for a human to have. The interchange with The Serara Forum is highly turbulating and truly stirs the pot to not only reveal ourselves to ourselves, [not a pretty sight], but to then motivate to start being at least half way diligent and perhaps a little useful.

The most helpful thing I have ever done in my life is the regular coming in stillness in a exercise of devotion and reverence at a very particular time each day, an insight I got from the Adventure in living books. It is not necessary for it to be a several hours each day type thing, and I have never had that spiritual mystical experience, so many talk about of the warm feeling of being loved and enveloped in a rush of bliss,  I will I am sure, but it has been enough to know without any doubt, that They, Father, Christ Michael, Universe Mother Spirit of Nebadon, my Adjuster, 'Meloloc, Pre'Msha, Cathy and Serena ,[at least two of my Guardian Angels]. and all the host of other Brothers and Sisters are right at our side, front & back, always. I have had many nick of time savings where I surely should have died and with severe and minor illnesses healed many times, and so the over care is very real.

In my case the being able to hear somewhat and receive from our Celestial Lords, Teachers and Family is slowly improving, with it being far from a mastered skill, but the experience, more and more is natural and very joyful. The way I have been guided when improvement was needed has almost been the best part, because either Ron or one of the Transmitters would let me know very clearly what could help, yet always with such consideration that you love Them even more for the adjustment. I have been coming, along in the last six months, to know that I know, all is as they say it is, concerning the Celestials being eager to communicate and seeing Their patience personally in working with us. Also, that there are no reservations about our TR ability on Their part, nor are our imperfections a criteria for our eligibility as TR persons. The main thing I think in beginning, is our utter surrender to whatever God wants, Not perfect yet but far along in giving up our will.  However its not completely that simple though because physical and mindal adjustments have to be made in most of us also. Please feel free to contact me at any time for shooting the breeze or whatever, as I enjoy that very much!
Daniel

Hi Daniel, 
This is Terry  Jackson in Oklahoma,a longtime lurker and member of Urantia Book Fellowship..in fact I'm hosting the reading at  my home Sunday. Just saying  hi  to a fellow Pennsylvanian, as I was born in Reading in 1944. I remember  my grammas house was on a tilted street named Green street just six houses down from the beginning of an ancient stand  of trees leading up the mountain to an oriental pagoda. How strange is that. I've always yearned to go back and see it.
So there's my ramblings and I wish you a lovely day.
Sincerely,Terry Louise Jackson

Hi Terry -  This is indeed a small world.    The Pagoda still stands on Skyline Drive and is now used as a Gift Shop and place for sightseeing.   You would not recognize Reading.   It is now the home of a large Hispanic population.   The city has grown and lost the personality that it had when I was growing up.   I feel like I'm in Philadelphia when I go there now.    It makes me sad that an area that had so much promise has changed so much.
