  1. To form a concept or concepts of, and especially to interpret in a conceptual way: "Efforts to Conceptualize the history and structure of the universe were already running into trouble because . . . the universe was not as uniform as had been assumed" (John Noble Wilford). ***
  2. Conceptualize God? Despite the title of this topic and human ideas, can not really formulate concepts about Universal Father because it is much more... than that. Perhaps some of you thought when I started the topic, but in the meantime some of that exists in our mind, that is, wanting to conceptualize God, it is impossible, but it is a way among many others, to start talking about our Father, from the low point of our perception and discernment. (should have written this by starting the topic!) because: I am struck by one quote that says that God is "the noblest work of man." Wouuu ... We believe too big, but it is; another paragraph also says that the man made God in his image and likeness (non-text) also is ridiculous but also true, sometimes this idea which comes from far in the time, it is quite common, although amazing, *******
  3. Hi Rick, Nelson! Yes Rick! The home is the basis of society, from there we learn the most important for life, In these times, I think, we are not going very well for the amount of problems in families, do not say all, but many, http://urantia.invis..._780#entry29346 #800 Greetings, Alina ***
  4. Scott, Yes, is very sad. For me, materialism (whether of the kind that is) though unintended, has had the effect of putting people of spirituality, of true religion. And with that many have forgotten God. If we add to this that established religions remained planted, instead of helping people grow in their spiritual evolution, the outlook is not cheerful, certainly. By contrast, some have become or are declared atheists ... Not that anyone believes in God. in a way, but I have been relegated to a lower level within the priorities of its existence. The results are plain to see, and nobody seems to me that it could deny, unless the materialist, of course.
  5. For me it is also well, FanofVan! because, Recognize God as our Father, it is obvious that we feel their children. We are son of God! But, what I observe is that the similarity with He we win trying to seem more to Him, doing his Will, which becomes ours as well when we realize that we are indeed their children! "This choosing does not so much consist in the negation of creature will — “Not my will but yours be done” — as it consists in the creature’s positive affirmation: “It is my will that your will be done.”111:5.6 And one day we will be ONE with our Father. *** Greetings all!

  6. Greetings Raymond, all! I was thinking about what love involves searching our identification with the indwelling Spirit Adjuster! God in us. Toward leads there the attempt of the creature to find the Unity. right? So many factors and personalities involved that is difficult in a few posts go including all this gear both Universal and personal. At this time I remembered gravity, because it also relates to the three lights listed above.
  7. Hi all! That's good Scott! In my opinion, Sure it's love! The material light, intellectual insight, and spirit luminosity. So if the gears work consistently, our potential become current.Just as the universe works, we should also work,systematically. Is this not seek unity within ourselves. trying to find the balance? Whoever does so, I think it's for the love to God, to do His Will, which according to UB. is trying to seem more... and more ... Him. While we are. giving of that love to others. Therefore, working with these three keys in us means, for me, being like unity within ourselves, because the Father is Unity. Alina ***
  8. Thank You Raymond, that's what I mean! I added two quotes: Greetings, Alina ***
  9. Hello! According to my understanding, the concepts,sometimes, there are not dimensioned, then again distortion.One thing is LOVE, in big letters, that is all the love of God and the other is love, as commonly used word. Nobody can experience the Love of God in its entirety. but we can love and be loved.In every face, in every expression, every tree, every flower ... in every animal, in everything we see, there is a fragment of the Father's love. so we feel love for such, for example. For me can reconcile both concepts, is relative depending on how we think about love, God is LOVE and Love is God but in its highest form, the Truth, Beauty, Goodness of the Father, is our Golden Rule and we know that three are one, LOVE. Now. if I move to my little world, fragments of that great LOVE, and try to find love in all, I can, I have the right to say that love is God in my experience, such as the Thought Adjusters. Do not forget that love, we live in many ways. Being loyal is an act of love, as it is being or trying to be fair, good, merciful, the list is long. Be seekers of Truth or seekers of God is an act of love. Why God is Unity? I would answer, no doubt: - Because is Love Why we seek to other people, friends, family, children... - Because it's love that ultimately makes us happy. (38.4) 2:4.4 Mercy is the natural and inevitable offspring of goodness and love. The good nature of a loving Father could not possibly withhold the wise ministry of mercy to each member of every group of his universe children. Eternal justice and divine mercy together constitute what in human experience would be called fairness. (43.5) 2:7.12 Truth is coherent, beauty attractive, goodness stabilizing. And when these values of that which is real are co-ordinated in personality experience, the result is a high order of love conditioned by wisdom and qualified by loyalty. The real purpose of all universe education is to effect the better co-ordination of the isolated child of the worlds with the larger realities of his expanding experience. Reality is finite on the human level, infinite and eternal on the higher and divine levels. Thanks all!!! Love Alina ***
  10. Nelson's okay, I just thought maybe you were thinking that fifth phase of universe reality, Thinking ... we understand something, only in theory, as a mental exercise. Alina ***
  11. Nelson, maybe you refer fifth phase levels of Reality of the Universe?
  12. I think Nelson that the full cycle of a mind at the peak of its expansion, would be seven dimensions, no? "...The nearer consciousness approaches the awareness of seven cosmic dimensions, the more does the concept of potential space approach ultimacy. But the space potential is truly ultimate only on the absolute level." 130:7.6 Alina ***
  13. Hello Nigel! If I understood correctly, you mean this? (1439.2) 130:7.4 Time is the stream of flowing temporal events perceived by creature consciousness. Time is a name given to the succession-arrangement whereby events are recognized and segregated. The universe of space is a time-related phenomenon as it is viewed from any interior position outside of the fixed abode of Paradise. The motion of time is only revealed in relation to something which does not move in space as a time phenomenon. In the universe of universes Paradise and its Deities transcend both time and space. On the inhabited worlds, human personality (indwelt and oriented by the Paradise Father’s spirit) is the only physically related reality which can transcend the material sequence of temporal events. (1439.3) 130:7.5 Animals do not sense time as does man, and even to man, because of his sectional and circumscribed view, time appears as a succession of events; but as man ascends, as he progresses inward, the enlarging view of this event procession is such that it is discerned more and more in its wholeness. That which formerly appeared as a succession of events then will be viewed as a whole and perfectly related cycle; in this way will circular simultaneity increasingly displace the onetime consciousness of the linear sequence of events. (1439.4) 130:7.6 There are seven different conceptions of space as it is conditioned by time. Space is measured by time, not time by space. The confusion of the scientist grows out of failure to recognize the reality of space. Space is not merely an intellectual concept of the variation in relatedness of universe objects. Space is not empty, and the only thing man knows which can even partially transcend space is mind. Mind can function independently of the concept of the space-relatedness of material objects. Space is relatively and comparatively finite to all beings of creature status. The nearer consciousness approaches the awareness of seven cosmic dimensions, the more does the concept of potential space approach ultimacy. But the space potential is truly ultimate only on the absolute level. (1439.5) 130:7.7 It must be apparent that universal reality has an expanding and always relative meaning on the ascending and perfecting levels of the cosmos. Ultimately, surviving mortals achieve identity in a seven-dimensional universe. (1439.6) 130:7.8 The time-space concept of a mind of material origin is destined to undergo successive enlargements as the conscious and conceiving personality ascends the levels of the universes. When man attains the mind intervening between the material and the spiritual planes of existence, his ideas of time-space will be enormously expanded both as to quality of perception and quantity of experience. The enlarging cosmic conceptions of an advancing spirit personality are due to augmentations of both depth of insight and scope of consciousness. And as personality passes on, upward and inward, to the transcendental levels of Deity-likeness, the time-space concept will increasingly approximate the timeless and spaceless concepts of the Absolutes. Relatively, and in accordance with transcendental attainment, these concepts of the absolute level are to be envisioned by the children of ultimate destiny.
  14. Hi Nelson, all! It seems to me that these quotes (below) tell us enough. Of Discourse Jesus on Time and Space. The perception of the physical and mental realities for me depends on the individual. Therefore, there are spatial-temporal dimensions also mental and spiritual dimensions. The three, material-mental-spiritual are personal perceptions o insights; levels of consciousness. Yes, also the Truth, Beauty and Goodness have different levels of perception.
  15. Growth and Progress Political Sovereignty (of Paper 134 -The Transition Years)
  16. Hi Rick, you said: Do you think that someday could become February 11 a day of celebration Adjuster?! Maybe someday ... it would be very beautiful Rick! Imagine people gathered on 11 February celebrating the arrival of the Thought Adjuster of Jesus! With the passage of time and evolution, parents will be very attentive to their children, and perhaps also to celebrate the arrival of the Spirit Adjuster individually! But... What imagination mine! Love... Alina ***
  17. And so .. we are in the God of Love, the highest concept closely linked our deepest feelings to the Father of all beings and things. The Love of God Love to all! Alina ***
  18. Thank you! It seems logical, first create, then control the created, and finally must upholder and sustain, or maintain the created, providing Breath ... The organization and economics of the Universal Father is a model of perfection! Greetings, Alina ***
  19. I believe Scott, which of course, there is that relationship that you say, everything is connected, all circuits working perfectly. But slowly. First, The Universal Controller is God, (not that fits into everything) but, rather, is the Master of everything. Hence derives Creator God. Then we have the Infinite Upholder, The Infinite Potential, The Infinite Capacity, The Universal One of Infinity. I AM AS I AM. Is One.
  20. Hi! Yeah, not experiential but a consequence, a potential, as you say. Then, go to the source, God as the First Source and Center and as Universal Controller, (the I Am as triune) right? Alina ***
  21. Hi! I agree Bradly! We perceive from the inside, to feel, I think is the most important. Here we talk about what we happen to us either from our experience from the perspective pilgrim or the Universe. Scott, I think the seven triunities give us more depth to our understanding. We can observe much about manifestation of the I AM. For me, this cause we get a little closer to the Great I AM, at least intellectually, it becomes more understandable. Although as stated in the quote, below, do not fully understand its reach to infinity, which is impossible. I once read that there are many philosophers who were lost, ie, their minds wandered, trying to understand the Whole circle of infinity and eternity. Wouu, we do not make that effort! it could happen as the point 3 Morontia Mota: (556.5) 48:7.5 3. Inherent capacities cannot be exceeded; a pint can never hold a quart. The spirit concept cannot be mechanically forced into the material memory mold.
