Subject: ANZURA's International Study Day
Recently featured in the Arena - an Australian readers' quarterly publication, the article below was meant to introduce the theme of this years' ANZURA Conference from 17-20 October in Canberra, Australia. But it is also the ' key-note' to this years' National Study Day on Saturday 21 June.
Wherever you are - immerse yourself in the Adjuster papers and be 'connected with and one in spirit' and make this an InterNational Study Day.
THE STUDY GROUP - ...we wish we could all have....
In Australia and New Zealand we are frustrated by the distance that separates our fellow students of the Urantia Papers. In our small meetings, as we stumble across gems of insight and understanding, how often have we wished that more of our friends were with us, that they might share and amplify those golden moments of study and discovery. That instead of being lonely handfuls, we might be a group 40 or 50 strong, infecting each other with the love and enthusiasm this gift from heaven deserves.
But in October, we will be such a group! Forty or so souls, free of distraction, stimulated by friendship, gathered from across our southern vastness to be with ones we love, to share ourselves, to understand, to appreciate, keen to help Michael accelerate his plan for his most damaged and special world. With so many of us gathered together, what an opportunity to struggle, as a team, with the juiciest and most interesting concepts in the book. With more souls on board, such a study group can become like a class on the mansion worlds, motivated by Melchizedeks and Divine counsellors, and guided by Michael's own Spirit of Truth. What a joy, together to unwrap a revelation, to bring to life in ourselves the truth it freely beams.
At this year's conference, our focus is Thought Adjusters, and how our lives are like "a moment of opportunity" to become engaged with them. The Papers reveal how this engagement begins, via the technique of the soul: the creation of a morontia platform for our ascending identity. And how it continues, as we become the personal poetry in a web of associated essences, as the Father aligns the seven dimensions of human personality with the eternal orientations of his Thought Adjusters.
This is the Father's work that Jesus had in mind. Our Michael has already spent 400 billion years making Nebadon the womb his Father needs-a place where fragments of his Father can be fertilized by all the colour and experience our willful personalities can bring. A place to begin the adventure of turning baby versions of himself into associable absolutes.
"And then, when such a universe has been so completely organized and so repletely manned, does the Creator Son enter into the Father's proposal to create mortal manin their divine image." [p.359:5]
What are Michael and his Father really up to? What are the Adjusters? What really is man? To help explore this theme, and to get a taste of what a Study Group can be, we plan to spend the Saturday of 21 June studying Paper 107, "the Origin and Nature of Thought Adjusters"
