"Difficulties may challenge mediocrity and defeat the fearful, but they only stimulate the true children of the Most Highs." (556.7)
"Effort does not always produce joy, but there is no happiness without intelligent effort." (556.10)
As inhabitants of this world we face a great task for three reasons. The first reason is simple: A planetary task of high priority was left unfinished, almost undone. The second reason is that previous generations in the past millenia did not have the fifth revelation – The Urantia Papers – which we have now. The task was explained in the book. The third reason is that unlike previous generations we have the scientific basis for doing something about the task. The time was high for a revelation and the circumstances had evolved sufficient in the middle of the last century. We were given the task and now there is no way to avoid this reality.
So, what is the task I am talking about?
"This whole scheme of race improvement was early wrecked on Urantia." (586.1)
"Having failed to achieve race harmonization by the Adamic technique, you must now work out your planetary problem of race improvement by other and largely human methods of adaptation and control." (586.4)
"In a general way, man’s evolutionary destiny is in his own hands, and scientific intelligence must sooner or later supersede the random functioning of uncontrolled natural selection and chance survival." (734.3)
So, the task is called race improvement and there is no other way to solve it but the scientific way.
