General Discussion / Re: Suffering from Romantic Love

The answers to your question and needs may be many and very long! Love is like a hunger that craves it's compliment in order to satisfy that need for companionship, to help fulfil our goals, our needs, prop up our weaknesses, share out strengths. I guess sometimes we let a person that could really compliment us slip away, and don't relise what is gone until it is!
But, not to sound corny, it does spring eternal as long as our hearts, mind and spirits are open to it's possibilities.
I do hope there is a turn around for you my friend...

Welcome SongatSunrise to our Family! 
I enjoyed your story about the picket fence! Does it not seem that we all get  'hooked-up' on a  proverbial picket fence now and then? Your story made me laugh, and made me think that those are maybe the picket fences that make us realise our human ability to forget to focus more on the things that count in the NOW and THEN.
Thanks and welcome again!

Hi All,

I am left speechless at all the info that is coming forth at this time! It goes to show that Ron has the temerity to be relentless in achieving what needs to be done in order for a MM to formalise here on our world. We mustn't get all hung up on small items, but realise that the main items will eventually elaborate into the small items, and that our concerns will be met or answered in due time, which is according to the time table our Father implements, in His time.
i go back to re-read some of this material since the volume is astronomical!
Thanks Ron, Sue!!!

Hi All,
Wow! Food for thought! So much to learn, it's like peeling an onion, but in reverse at times!
A great man once said this: As man now is, God once was: “As God now is, man may be.” 
Some points of this statement are arguable, but what I draw out of this is the fact of a never-beginning, never ending state of growth, or evolution in the advancement of man, and celestial being...or am I reading this wrong?

Hi All,

The thought often crosses my mind, and more so on this Easter occasion as to what this Easter celebration should mean to all and what I could highlight as to what are significant points of Jesus’ life, death, and ‘2nd’ return here on Urantia.
The first point that bears our remembering is that Jesus’ purpose in coming to our little blue planet was not to atone for our sins, but to qualify himself as our Creator Son by bestowing himself as a mortal of our time and space. As in so many situations, man took it upon himself to exercise his ego and free will and try to take him out of the picture altogether, and thus preserve man’s view of what our world should be, and not the vision of He who created it, and in fact, owns it more than any one group, government, church or organization can ever lay claim to.
Another point that merits consideration on this Easter is that ‘He Lives’! Despite what many think, or do...despite the wonders of our technology and science to enforce what is and is not not according to our narrow band of knowledge...He Lives: in the past, present and future infinities...he simply is! And, this is a concept that is difficult for our finite human being to comprehend and accept! The Good News is that His survival open the door to prove beyond the shadow of doubt, that the same is available to all that love, and know of him. The same is offered up even to those that do not know him, but practice the principle of goodness and love. And this is a gift to all: free, bond, all races, colour, creed, orientation, history. Our Heaqvenly Father operates on the principle of goodness, all that he does is out of this. Never by coercion, temperament, retribution, negativity. He gave us each other in order to confront and overcome, as well as enjoy all the ups and downs this life has to offer you and I.
A third point to reflect upon on this Easter is that of the 2nd return. He said he would return...he holds to that promise. And it will be according to His and our Heavenly Father’s time, and purpose. And what will he return for? To formally claim that which is his. To teach this world the ways of peace, or love, and of the paths to eternal progress that is available to each of us. That we know of that still, small voice that lives within each of us. That we too can partner with Heavenly Father and our Creator Son, and so many others to glorify and uplift!
May this Easter be a blessing to you, and may you be a blessing to many!

Hi All,

Now here is one very unique point: that what we learn and do here may be useful for us in the the future when we are done here on Urantia!!

Thanks for sharing this with us.

Hi All,

Sister Sue, Congrats are in order!!! Ding Xin, maybe consider switching over to drinking Kombucha once in a while (ginger is great, and I make my own). I guess I have to remove my foot out of my mouth, and kick myself in the backside in order to make a firm commitment to move forwards in my own progress, which has been on the back shelf for too long...

Salut Antonio,
Un tres beau message! Merci pour le partager! Maintenant tu recolte les fruits de ta perseverance mon ami! Never give up! I am so happy for you and look forwards to hearing more.
Je te mp ce soir.
Merci encore!

Hi All,

I love the comments being made and the revelations being given! And...I love the wit and humour being espoused! As one great man once said, and I am paraphrasing here: " We may not be handsome, but we are all the Lord has"!! or as the main man on the Red Green show said: "The ladies may not find you handsome, but they will find you handy!".

Larry, what a great post!! It is indeed good to know that we are understood...the way we think and act...and how we should!
We are not alone, and many are looking out for our interests!

Brother Don, Thanks for stating it so 'hit -the-nail-on-the-head!!
Hats off to have taken an ocean of water, and condensed it to a cup!!! 

Hear! Hear! That we can learn to go to the fount of wisdom for guidance and learn to do all things in proper fashion as our Father would have it!
