Hi All,

So many words of practical advice.
I have lived through many of the same situations and can vouch that the advice given here rings true. In my own family, my words and experience are disregarded and viewed as noting. It seems that many persons, as long as they can get service or use out of you, that is fine...but that is also as far as they are willing to extend their respect, love, sympathy, call it what you will.
It is a hard situation to be in, as we naturally always hope that we will find reassurance, belief, and confidence in us within the confines of our families and friends, but that is not to be in most cases.
And, very often, it can be discouraging, yes. I always refer back to paper 109-5, it does explain much about why this happens.

Hi LarryG,
OK, you got me going here! I am going to keep my eyes and ears on for any more info on this, as there does seem to be a role that we might play in this?

Hi All,

Isn't is strange how dreams and visions pop up when we seem to need them? I share this item, because it is true:
My older sister passed away last fall. We were close. A couple of weeks after her passing, I was sitting in the living room, when I found myself wrapped in, a vision for lack of proper term. I was not asleep, but what I found myself in was so real, it was tangible it seems! I was in the kitchen in my parents old house with my other siblings. We heard knocking at the back door in the next room with was a summer kitchen, and this through closed doors. I responded by saying 'I'll get it'. When I walked to the back door I could see that it was sunny outside through the surrounding windows. The two glass door panel seemed dim like smokey, and my sister who had passed away was on the other side of the door. She seemed so much younger. She smile at me, said she had to go, and the whole thing dissolved around me.

Wow!!

Hi Wendy,

Yes, I quite agree with you. But there are always persons out there who get a kick out of drama, mysticism, and truth veiled in allegory!..lol...sorry, a little sarcasm here, but yes I do agree, sane, honest searchers of truth will see the truth and logic in this chart. BTW, Papers 109-5 tells us why many may not see or understand this...

Ron,
Many thanks for taking the time to clue everyone as to what exactly takes place when we, so to say, " kick the bucket here". I we read the Bible and other sacred books, we see where this process is interpreted using the available language and comprehension of the time, and how easy it was to call a wheel by a different name or different understanding.
I will be sharing this with friends, if you are ok with this?

Again, many thanks!

Hi,

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!!!

General Discussion / Re: Need for a Urantia and Spirit Primer?
« on: April 16, 2018, 09:43:19 PM »
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?
Domtia!

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!

Domtia!

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...
Domtia.
