I think Sue's instinct to become proficient at public speaking is spot on.  After we have studied the new Urantia Book, and combine that with our experiences and knowledge we have gained here, speaking will be a very valuable asset to have.  Very good topic Sue!  Thanks.

Hi Sue--Wendy and Lemuel give great sources to look at.  I think there's two important points for a good public speaker. First know your subject matter well.  Be as knowledgable as possible.  This will bolster your confidence a lot. Second, be authentic.  If you are asked a question that you don't know the answer to, just say that its a good question, and you will look into it and get back to them.  If you are comfortable, your audience will pick up on that and be comfortable listening.  
This applies to a friendly audience.  If the audience is hostile to what you are saying, all bets are off.  Try to avoid situations that you recognize as confrontational, as you will not make much progress.  I don't know about Australia, but I see a lot of that here in the States.
Hope this helps.
P.s.  I’ve been having a great deal of trouble with the website the last few days.  Has anyone else.  I keep getting error messages.  I had to try this response several times. :-(

I find it so heartening and joyful to see how we can work together on this forum!  Larry, you are so kind and generous, and others have been very helpful too.  When Ron first made this post and I clicked on the link, I noticed that his book was over 700,000 on the ranking list.  I just checked it again, and it is now up to a ranking of  about 230,000.  That is a significant change.  Let us hope and pray that it gets into the hands of those who can see its value and take steps to begin implementing this technology.  You are all so dear to me and I can't wait for the day when we will be meeting, either on Urantia or the mansion worlds, and be able to continue our service together.
Many, many blessings,

If you use a Mac computer and have the latest OS, I think you can use the books app to read any book you download.  You cannot browse for it, but it should show up after it is downloaded.  At least that is what I gleaned from searching for info on the built in app.

Wendy--Thank you so much.  I did re-read and made a copy of the chart to which you refer, but must admit my ignorance frustrates me.  Margul said:
"Amethyst did well herself but she frequently closes down when she has not real bright idea how to make hay while the sun shines.  She would do much better to let herself run the rim of the GRID to find a place there where she can chat all day with those who like the idea of Grid protection, but now Michael makes them move on after a number of times in it and without any good results for their own good to continue there."
Margul knows of my ignorance here as stated in his first sentence.  But how do you "run the rim."?  Is this imagining it in stillness and meditation?  How did you meet the mother you speak of?  The current UB tells us we will each awaken after death in the resurrection hall, so I have always thought that our angels would take us there without any interference.  I am somewhat embarrassed to be so ignorant about this.  
Each October, because of Halloween,  there are always a lot of shows on TV about restless spirits etc., who come and go through 'vortexes' connected to the earth.  Are they coming from the grid?  Some of them are very dark and would be dangerous.  I also cannot figure out how some of them can be 'intelligent' spirits without having been repersonalized on the Mansion Worlds.  
I have asked my Adjuster to give me the education on this in a way that I can understand.  It would be wonderful to be able to help those who need some encouragement to move on.  Maybe there will be more about this in the new Urantia Book.  I thank God so much for his LOVE and PROTECTION.

Occerpa--I thank you for your comments as they gave me an extra amount of courage to ask more deeply about this.


Sue--I am so glad you addressed the grid.  I have to admit, that I was not able to understand what Margul was trying to tell me in his comments here.  Sometimes I can miss the most obvious things.  I would not know how to approach the grid, and it seems to me that we were recently told that it was all fixed.  If you (or any of you) want to help me better understand what he meant, please send a pm.  

It seems like you are beginning to feel a little bit better.  I hope this is true.

The news about the new Urantia Book is so wonderful!  I can't wait to get a copy in my hands and begin the study.  I will now have to start in earnest to begin to understand all that Ron is producing on energy.  I have not been doing so and Ron knows this, but even though it is not one of my areas of great interest, I feel that a basic understanding will now be needed as it appears that this is to be included in the new Urantia Book, and I will need to study every page carefully.  

My heart sang when I read Ron's post. I look forward to the time when our transmissions will once again flow.

Hi Sue--I have noticed this.  Tonight there are over 800.  That IS something.

Ron fully intends to reform the present Fifth Epochal Revelation, by issuing a mandate of his own to return all copies of the book to the Repository in the Magisterial Foundation, and will offer a bounty of $40/copy when received.
Is there any chance we would be able to keep just one copy for historical purposes?  I can envision a situation when a comparison of the two might be useful, especially for writer's research.  Just wondering.

My dear sister Phyllis--This is wonderful and so insightful.  I can tell you put a lot of work into this and should be read by all!

Clency--I am so discouraged to see your post and I cannot help but wonder if there is more to it than meets the eye.  Like the others, I do hope you will come back at some point in time and I echo Larry's advice NOT TO DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT.  Time changes many things so perhaps at some future date you may decide to come back.
Ron--Like the others here my heart is heavy because of all of your physical suffering.  We do pray for you.  May you be up and running soon!
I know things are very quiet here now.  I look forward to being able to receive transmissions again. Blessing to all of you.
p.s.  I just read your post Clency.  Whew! Wonderful!
P.s.s.  I love that picture of you--so adorable.

Hi Sergio,
Your second question assumes (if I am understanding it right) that the material and the moronita realms are the same.  They exist in two totally different dimensions.  We here in the physical cannot ordinarily see the moronita levels, which is where our angels will take us when we go to the mansion worlds.  I don't think measurements like 'light years' would apply on the moronita level.  The moronita level intervenes between the martial and the spiritual.  You might find Papers 46-48 helpful.  There are physical aspects of this dimension, even though we cannot see it.  This is somewhat an over simplification, but I hope it helps.

Hello and welcome Sergio.
I hope you will find your association with our little group here a pleasant and fruitful one.
If memory serves me right there is a passage in the Urantia Book that says something about receiving more revelation when a planet is going through difficult and tumultuous times.  Maybe one of the other members could let you know where it is.

Also, 52:2.3 "The evolution of the religious capacity of receptivity in the inhabitants of a world determines their rate of spiritual advancement and the extent of religious revelation."  You already know, I'm sure, that Urantia is unique in so, so many ways, that things that would apply to a normal or average planet, don't apply here.  Every time I learn something new that seems out of the norm, I have to remind myself that this is Urantia we are talking about.  I have come to expect the unexpected.  I'm quite sure others can add much more than I can to you question.
Anyway welcome aboard!


Thanks Margul and Ron--Your description of my ancestry is  quite accurate. My mother was really into genealogy.  I do have a little Native American, but am mostly European and especially Scottish.  I indeed can speak with a fine Scottish/Irish brogue. :)

Very interesting Ron--I sat down about two hours ago to take a transmission and for some reason, all I got was the proverbial chirping of crickets.  Now I know why.  Thanks for letting us know.
