  1. Hi Scott! It seems to me that the lack of the necessary percentage of violet blood is one of the causes, Although, it was enough for us to continue being here. I dread to think what would have happened if this extraordinary event had not occurred. right? Of course. if impatience, had not led to fall victim to the trap of Caligastia, by Cano, the evolution of Urantia would have developed, as in other normal planets . Eva was impatient, but anyway, I would like to meet her someday! The mission was very difficult, I do not blame her for this controversial .for some, and partial failure, who knows? I do not know, but maybe the events had to develop so. I am very grateful to Adam and Eve who came to our planet with a mission so gigantic as beautiful. For me, is logical thinking that is the reason of so much violence, because if more spiritual racial strains have been more Urantia would have evolved without so much violence, among other things, but mine is conjecture...

  2. Thank you Dear Carolina! It is very true what you say! Women are more pacifist, more sensitive, and we have suffered much the consequences of war. It is true, as the Revelations says, at other times have been utility or benefit, but it seems to me that it is time to turn progressive, because the time is changing and very fast. Nor war today would be as before, is a great, tremendous risk, worldwide. LOVE Alina ***
  3. Hi again! In my previous post I wrote about the competition, without goal or purpose important. Now I was reading and just found this quote! The Evolution of Competition (805.1) 71:5.1 Competition is essential to social progress, but competition, unregulated, breeds violence. In current society, competition is slowly displacing war in that it determines the individual’s place in industry, as well as decreeing the survival of the industries themselves. (Murder and war differ in their status before the mores, murder having been outlawed since the early days of society, while war has never yet been outlawed by mankind as a whole.) ***
  4. Hello Carolyn and Bonita! Dear Carolyn, along with what you say, sometimes among humans, beyond politics, things happen in their daily relationships, family, friendship, because some always think they own the truth and this is "imposed" to the other , or try to enforce their ideas, either way, there are no limits,when the ego wants to "eat". So the moral values are important to good relations. Starting from the family, then extends to society and so... and where there is no moral, less can be no ethics, seems that ethics is a disused word. As wrote Bonita, is the effect of the lack of genuine spirituality, this is because of many errors. 170:3.8 But Jesus did not put ethics in the place of religion. He taught religion as a cause and ethics as a result. Modern society, it seems that the most important is the competition for everything. all to feel superior. Materialism, not the material, has a big part in all of this imbalance, too. And so you can not advance in the religious, collectively, by of course you can individually. Competition is good, when used for real growth, then you can help others, but when it is to feed the ego without another important objective, is disastrous. Love... Alina ***
  5. Hi Bonita! Thus the lack of the transcendent, of the genuine values ​​produces selfish man. Apparently and according to UB. binds with prejudice, too. So is taking other deficiencies. In these times, is much needed the resurgence of faith, of personal religion, because,definitely is all that lifts us above the pettiness, and make us feel and experience the true brotherhood among men. (1774.5) 160:1.13 Prejudice blinds the soul to the recognition of truth, and prejudice can be removed only by the sincere devotion of the soul to the adoration of a cause that is all-embracing and all-inclusive of one’s fellow men. Prejudice is inseparably linked to selfishness. Prejudice can be eliminated only by the abandonment of self-seeking and by substituting therefor the quest of the satisfaction of the service of a cause that is not only greater than self, but one that is even greater than all humanity — the search for God, the attainment of divinity. The evidence of maturity of personality consists in the transformation of human desire so that it constantly seeks for the realization of those values which are highest and most divinely real. (1774.6) 160:1.14 In a continually changing world, in the midst of an evolving social order, it is impossible to maintain settled and established goals of destiny. Stability of personality can be experienced only by those who have discovered and embraced the living God as the eternal goal of infinite attainment. And thus to transfer one’s goal from time to eternity, from earth to Paradise, from the human to the divine, requires that man shall become regenerated, converted, be born again; that he shall become the re-created child of the divine spirit; that he shall gain entrance into the brotherhood of the kingdom of heaven. All philosophies and religions which fall short of these ideals are immature. The philosophy which I teach, linked with the gospel which you preach, represents the new religion of maturity, the ideal of all future generations. And this is true because our ideal is final, infallible, eternal, universal, absolute, and infinite. Greetings, Alina ***
  6. Yes Rick, the potential of consciousness is unimaginable; as big as the Immensity same! Steps to steps, for me the important thing is to see that we move forward. The task is beautiful, but sometimes, What difficult is! although I think it has to be so, because, it is easy to fall, is difficult to climb. They're coming? some, seems to me, that already are Thanks, Greetings, Alina ***
  7. Hello Rick, all! It's a great lesson! He did the Father's Will! always focusing his deep mind to Truth, Beauty and Goodness, behind what is apparent, perishable.But,I think this is important, Not ignoring this relative reality. So his mind was perfectly balanced, resulting in the unification between the divine and the human personality.The "inner vision" allowed him to focus on his Spirit Adjuster and maintain that state of serenity in all difficult situations of his life. (2087.1) 196:0.1 JESUS enjoyed a sublime and wholehearted faith in God. He experienced the ordinary ups and downs of mortal existence, but he never religiously doubted the certainty of God’s watchcare and guidance. His faith was the outgrowth of the insight born of the activity of the divine presence, his indwelling Adjuster. His faith was neither traditional nor merely intellectual; it was wholly personal and purely spiritual. (2087.2) 196:0.2 The human Jesus saw God as being holy, just, and great, as well as being true, beautiful, and good. All these attributes of divinity he focused in his mind as the “will of the Father in heaven.” Jesus’ God was at one and the same time “The Holy One of Israel” and “The living and loving Father in heaven.” The concept of God as a Father was not original with Jesus, but he exalted and elevated the idea into a sublime experience by achieving a new revelation of God and by proclaiming that every mortal creature is a child of this Father of love, a son of God. Love... Alina ***
  8. Only in relation to God or also in behavior with other people? Thanks Alina ***
  9. I totally agree with you! The UB helps a lot, a lot to understand what was almost incomprehensible and also injustice! and we drove to the speculation and conjecture which too often left us more confused than before. As if it were not open out of ignorance. Here a interesting quote:
  10. Hi! I do not know if have exact relationship with Lucifer, because we have Free Will to make positive changes in ourselves but errors always present inheritance, often... We know that everything has to be earned and is a problem in countries like ours that still people who want that "everything will come from above." How to make them understand that we will never be all equal, that equality is impossible? It would be utopia, false freedom ... mental inertia, often inherited, others acquired from various causes... It is a problem, dear Scott. The people, not all of course, has to grow up and take off the legacy of its socio-political heritage. By this I mean fanaticism that often, too, do not let reason. But something is changing in the way people think. In that. Menno says is like, ideas encyst in the course of generations if nothing is done by the real progress. And I repeat something I like "Equal opportunity" but this would, in addition to the education theme, etc ... etc... is a string. Greetings, Alina ***
  11. Scott, please explain to me, do not know what is Liberation Theology?
  12. Thanks Scott, This clarification is fine. in my opinion, for translators and correctors of UB. because language españosl says "autoaserción" when it should say "autoafirmación". The word assertion is not used by us. In Spanish says "autoaserción y libertad" I think it would be better "autoafirmación y libertad." But it is just an opinion regarding the translation. Maybe if you do not know Spanish, do not get me much. But,Yes I agree, the error of Lucifer was wanting to hasten the evolution, the time and believing in freedom false. It is impossible for everyone to have the same intelligence, It is not the same as "equal opportunities" Other thing was the utopia of the freedom, many people still pursue by not having the true meaning of freedom. The True and False Freedom. (613.3) 54:1.1 Of all the perplexing problems growing out of the Lucifer rebellion, none has occasioned more difficulty than the failure of immature evolutionary mortals to distinguish between true and false liberty. But, Love always triumphs: Thank you! Alina ***
  13. Hi to all! Something that struck me is the word self-assertion of Paper 16. It is, at least a term rarely used Spanish language What does it mean exactly? Anyone know more about this concept? of course I am not referring to a maximum degree, as the end reached by Lucifer. Could we fall into the void, without even realizing it?It seems to me that to know ourselves, (lower part of yo "egocentrism") to get degrees higher would be like " separate the tares (defects, errors) of the wheat (truth) " Our Spirit Thought Adjuster can not guide us if our hearts and minds are not "reasonably" harmonized,that is, within our current possibilities. Looking dictionaries I found some definitions but, I think that fail to give us a clear and profound meaning. ____________ Dictionary of Spanish © 2005 Espasa Calpe: assertion f. Action and effect of state (secure). Proposition which states or gives anything for certain. ---- assertion feminine noun 1. assertion of state action or Dio certainly give your assertion the student. 2. assertion speech, words that affirm or take for Your assertion true something surprised us ___________ Some paragraphs of "self-assertion" from the UB: (602.5) 53:2.2 There were no peculiar or special conditions in the system of Satania which suggested or favored rebellion. It is our belief that the idea took origin and form in Lucifer’s mind, and that he might have instigated such a rebellion no matter where he might have been stationed. Lucifer first announced his plans to Satan, but it required several months to corrupt the mind of his able and brilliant associate. However, when once converted to the rebel theories, he became a bold and earnest advocate of “self-assertion and liberty.” 602.6) 53:2.3 No one ever suggested rebellion to Lucifer. The idea of self-assertion in opposition to the will of Michael and to the plans of the Universal Father, as they are represented in Michael, had its origin in his own mind... (607.3) 53:7.2 Throughout this period Caligastia was advocating the cause of Lucifer on Urantia. The Melchizedeks ably opposed the apostate Planetary Prince, but the sophistries of unbridled liberty and the delusions of self-assertion had every opportunity for deceiving the primitive peoples of a young and undeveloped world. 606.8) 53:6.5 “Having been automatically thrown out of the constellation circuits by the secession of Lucifer, we were dependent on the loyalty of our intelligence corps, who forwarded calls for help to Edentia from the near-by system of Rantulia; and we found that the kingdom of order, the intellect of loyalty, and the spirit of truth were inherently triumphant over rebellion, self-assertion, and so-called personal liberty;... --- Well, I do not know if anyone knows a little more deeply about the meaning of this word.at least in Spanish, there are differences that I have no clear. It has to do with pride, with the exaggerated self-esteem? Thanks, Greetings... Alina ***
  14. Good Day Rick, all! Thank You! Just to complete the quote that you copied about ... "You are about to reject the gift of God, and all men will reject you" Much Love... Alina ***
  15. Good Day Rick, All! What teaching. so wonderful! Wonderful Jesus! How much goodness! How beautiful! during those years. economically hard! ...and Jesus, being a thoroughly practical youth as well as an idealist, intelligently and vigorously attacked his problem just as he found it, and did everything within his power to adjust himself and his family to the realities of their situation and to adapt their condition to the highest possible satisfaction of their individual and collective longings.(1393.7) This dear world, in this time of transition to Urantia has become much more materialistic than spiritual, in this world where people come in elite and privileged, too often the persons is measured more by what they have, so they are. Jesus, at that time seem so remote but his teachings are current and future, his life is the biggest and best example and guide. He was, Is and Will be... ...However, among these Jews lack of wealth did not imply social inferiority.(1392.8) Of course! not always closely related, nor is the ideal, not bad to have economic goods, are necessary and important for our tranquility and access to education etc ... etc ... we all know it, but in these times, too many times, both things do not always go hand in hand; the growth is uneven. Incredible, because at that time the Jews were less ignorant than most cults this time? This, our beloved Urantia, whose Sovereign is Michael of Nebadon, is running backwards! Love to all. Alina ***
  16. Hi! I do not know if I'm wrong, but to me the quote (below) makes me think that in effect, the same space can be occupied by more than one "thing" because do not forget that: (472.12) 42:4.1 Light, heat, electricity, magnetism,chemism, energy, and matter are — in origin, nature, and destiny — one and the same thing, together with other material realities as yet undiscovered on Urantia. So, if are together occupy a place in space. right? (29.7) 1:6.1 Human personality is the time-space image-shadow cast by the divine Creator personality. And no actuality can ever be adequately comprehended by an examination of its shadow. Shadows should be interpreted in terms of the true substance. Alina ***
  17. Hi Nelson and all! Addition the above answers, do you seems this quote? I'm thinking about this: "Shadows should be interpreted in terms of the true substance" So, How do you understand, true substance? Greetings to all! Alina ***
  18. Thanks Pike, Yes. I do think that we look like! Come to Argentina! Look what beautiful quote of Rodan about Jesus and friendship: ***
  19. Thank You menno! It is very interesting! As I wrote above ... Would not surprise me much that happen ... anytime ... in the most unexpected moment. It would be Great! but really I do not know for sure, nobody knows day or hour. Greetings, Alina ***
  20. Hello! The above information, Could be related to this point ? (quote below) What do you think? Thanks... Alina ***
  21. Hello to all! It would not be strange that within not too long, requiring the direct intervention of Urantia Melchizedek. It is not difficult to deduce if we look at our world as it is these days. From all angles, there are very marked imbalances, but that would not be anything important if we had with the ability to project the future, but it turns out that this is not in sight, such is the degree of complexity that is submerged Urantia in this time of transition. Still being optimistic, positive, fearless, temporal reality we come to experience and is for those who want to see it. The indifference is pathetic Or is it something else? But my attention as people prefer to remain in the distractions of life, instead of addressing the issues and think about the future to come. Because civilization is at risk if ...three quarters of its youth enter materialistic professions and devote themselves to the pursuit of the sensory activities of the outer world.
  22. Interesting study allows us to find many clues behind an inconsequential story, first read and then analyze it;The mission of discovery that another major solar system moves through the local galactic medium more slowly and in a different direction than previously measured by the NASA mission, ESA Odysseus has caused perplexity. Through a joint mission of the European Space Agency and NASA Ulysses probe traced the unknown reaches of space above and below the poles of the sun. In an effort to resolve the differences between the measurements of the two spacecraft, IBEX scientists and Ulysses met in the EOS for three days in mid-February for data comparison and analysis. Among other reasons, determine how different galactic cloud're browsing through and, in turn, what is our place in the universe?. Previous measurements of Ulysses interstellar gas flow indicates the average galaxy faster orientation, which seemed to put our solar system in a region between two nearest clouds, the Local Interstellar Cloud Cloud interstellar and G, the latter which contains Alpha Centauri,our nearest star to three light years away. However, the recent IBEX measurements seem to put our solar system in the local cloud, which seems to be consistent with what astronomers have found looking through the galaxy, where the solar system is on the leading edge of the cloud.Spectroscopic measurements through the galactic medium allow astronomers to see that the clouds are there and how they are moving. Says Eberhard Moebius, UNH chief scientist of the IBEX mission, From this, and within certain levels of confidence, we can project the time paths and determine that the Sun has gone through environments where the heliosphere has been very small or very large, all that, as we have learned, has a significant influence on the radiation environment of the solar system and, ultimately, our planet. With this cosmic road map in hand, scientists can try to connect the dots in time for evidence of the evolution of life on Earth, with its ups and downs and extinctions and changes in climate. * This is an area of research focus that we have achieved in just the last ten or fifteen years , says Moebius. Research has opened a new window to measure the potential habitability of planets in a solar system that would also have a specific protective bubble, or * astrósfera *. This means that for exoplanets with astrósfera is much more likely that some sort of life has evolved since, like our heliosphere, the bubble would have provided damping force of galactic cosmic rays and lower levels allow different radiation to conduct genetic mutations and thus the development of life. Möbius says: * Once we understand our environment, in which neighborhood we are, how it is and has been in the galactic medium that controls it, then we can modify our models and find other living quarters of the galaxy with many more scattered data . Which brings us back to the business of the disparity between the data and the IBEX Ulysses about where we are right now.Dual data Could be the result of differences in the initial measurement, subsequent analysis techniques, or real differences in space and time? Möbius notes that cosmic standards as the difference between Ulysses spacetime = a mission that ran from 1990 to 2009 and took data for the interstellar gas by 2007 = and IBEX is a mere nano-blink, and is highly unlikely that an operating system on the scale of hundreds of thousands to millions of years may vary in any measurable way over a decade. Is there anything in the data analysis of Ulysses or IBEX we are doing differently and not sabemoss? , Möbius wondered before the February meeting with mission scientists. In the wake of the meeting notes Möbius appointment; * We look at the potential culprits in the methods of observation and analysis that could lead to the observed differences in the velocity vector, but have not found one yet. We have to wait for the next round of data analysis on both sides to be completed for further assistance *.Meanwhile, IBEX, safely parked in a stable orbit only, provides a lot of additional data through the years by the theory of the tape retention and provide new perspectives on our place in the cosmos. --- For those who are still wondering what is the truth about our solar system is navigating new districts * in , well ... you see, is correct. For those who doubt that our solar system is interacting or colliding with clouds of matter interestelas well ... you see, is correct.As it is right how little he knows our science = it recognizes in this article =, discrepancies, doubts and ultimately the concern. This concern is reflected when they recognize that the heliosphere is compressed and expanded and that this depends on the buffer against potential risks, such as galactic cosmic rays, to whom he attributes the ability to produce * genetic mutations in the evolution of life * . The report also recognizes a * half * Galactic controls us, either, to the fragile spacecraft, the solar system and therefore ... our planet.If this force has always worked on everything, because we should not worry about how you do it, because with such intelligence machinery able to maintain and produce what amazes us this creation, need not err, and the effects for us are interpreted as * dangerous * extreme events and therefore are within our little way of conceiving and medioicre Creation. Of course, but we trust that everything that happens is in good hands, we try not prevent us from noticing that things are changing and most intelligent of all this is that if things are going to change, we Prevent on these changes. Let's see how this tug of war * between solar radiation and cosmic radiation; The neutron graphic I chose, is one month, runs from February 27 and shows us well that from approximately March 17, when we had events solar cosmic radiation fell, and remained standing, but now that the effects of solar events are diluted, these same cosmic rays begin to rise again; Who knows what decides our Creation as the best option for the operation of the machine, but if we see it from the potential risk of cosmic rays, this is not good; If our sun decides to enter dormant phase, it is highly likely that increased cosmic radiation. If on one hand we are to believe the official space agencies like NASA, for example, we are at the gates of the first peak of this strange cycle, but if we are to believe the Sun independent science is going to take a long break in activity. For now, with so little activity the Sun has managed to deliver geo-magnetic tormetas in the last week, and currently expected Kp index increases, as is indicated by the monitors; Officially NOAA indicates that as of today the solar winds continue to increase to 28-29 and will rise further due to the effects of the coronal hole blow blowing and gets as geo-effective position, it which will produce perhaps a G1-class storm; And beyond that is over the grounds of the event on the 17th .. = haha =, which served as a pretext to explain high levels of electrons, is only the eternal now coronal hole .. but this time it is certain that the current is blowing. Still .. high electron levels, mild elevation of high-energy protons and low proton peaks with upward trend, indicating that the anomaly of the Atlantic is a fact about that radiation leak is not contained as should be in the Van Allen belts; Looking at the dark side of the sun it appears that there are numerous spots and if they survive, we would be on track to peak theory as we move towards winter in the Southern Hemisphere or the spring in the Northern Hemisphere; However .. information indicates that all these spots are in sharp decline farside, both in size and ability to be very active; As you can see, most are of poor magnetic potential are Alpha or Beta, none surpasses that configuration, and the list also highlights that most are in decline and the stable rating are the visible face recently abandoned, ie none of the spots is farside growth mode. This would suggest that within the logic, we expect a very poor week regarding solar activity staining. However, I do not rule out the formation of new ones, a pattern that has been going on continuously growing, and if you are at least survive, could be facing a somersault, ie that the deactivation process could begin in reverse, so as these spots begin to re-enter the month of April will be critical to sustain start or directly bury the theory here presented. I do not rule it more events increase of protons and electrons and a decrease of filaments and coronal holes, added to a disaster of proportions of our magnetosphere, because that is the start to reverse. Thinking like this post started = ultimately = concluding that all that concerns us is due to a natural order, I firmly believe that much of what we see in the world obeys an order * unnatural *. Much of this phenomenology within our solar system is the result of geoengineering space, trying to curb what * naturally * .. comes from outside our solar system. This is a hopeless tug, where those who have moved the threads of our humanity have attempted to keep its empire within the heliosphere bubble, without understanding that comes from outside the natural, invincible and in-manipulable. These magnificent and historical times in which we are witnessing a major shift in the known parameters, where surely, new textbooks have to be rewritten for future generations. tiemposllegados To get your own ideas and research...
