  1. I believe you are right to say that we are between "the material-comfort era" and "the quest for knowledge and wisdom."
  2. To answer your question Bill, though you may have directed it more towards John than myself... I believe that the need to compete with each other is a big role our society currently plays at the moment, especially in a capitalist society. We are so removed from our neighbours that it seems difficult for us to come together. Reason being, our governments thrive on us remaining distanced from eachother, by thinking that we are so different from one another in our competition to have more than our neighbours next door. We are more easily controlled in such a society. Our governments know this, and they depend on it. It is our control device. Our greatest barrier from establishing that Brotherhood of Man. I do believe that the need to seperate ourselves goes back to tribalism, in which competition was heavily in play; and that yes, it is the sign of a lesser evolved society. That it seems our next step is to come together, as we evolve, and that this Love for our fellow man will replace any sort of "differences" we may think we have from our neighbours, which will create a more evolved society structure...and will be, for us, the moment when real progress begins to be made upon this world.

  4. Claude, My personal life story I don't believe would belong in this thread. But for the sake of confinement, for the sake of staying relevent i'll give you a quick capitulation of my religious life: I sought the bible at the age of 10 and began to get very obsessed with the idea of extraterrestrial life, though I couldn't unite the link between the two. I then came to various forms of occultism and occult practices before reverting to atheism. I have then came back to Jesus in March and have been obsessed with the idea of extraterrestrial life again, though I couldn't link it until a month later when I would discover The Urantia Book, understanding finally the link between the two (but to a relative degree). Conclusion: My Life is lived for The King of Kings, and I am ready to learn more about our King through study of The Urantia Book.
  5. A good point Jen. I would like to see some of this cited comparing.
  6. What does "cheminement" mean? I may be glad to share my thoughts with you. I believe the feeling is synonamous Claude: we are all able to discern this material-minded winter before the springing-summer of a new age. The Spirit of Christ is on this planet, this is true. So, in essence, Christ is here now...but not yet quite flourished, as his true Coming, or revelation upon mankind will be. I think we can all agree on that my friend.
  7. I believe what Claude is experiencing is an account of these words... "And now concerning the travail of Jerusalem, about which I have spoken to you, even this generation will not pass away until my words are fulfilled; but concerning the times of the coming again of the Son of Man, no one in heaven or on earth may presume to speak. But you should be wise regarding the ripening of an age; you should be alert to discern the signs of the times. You know when the fig tree shows its tender branches and puts forth its leaves that summer is near. Likewise, when the world has passed through the long winter of MATERIAL-MINDEDNESS and you discern the coming of the spiritual springtime of a new dispensation, should you know that the summertime of a new visitation draws near." I believe we are all wise enough to discern the signs of the times. YET, on such matters of WHEN no one should speak. For as we are able to discern the times, we do not know WHEN that time will come...but again, we are capable of discerning the signs of the times. I think this is what Claude is more or less attempting to communicate. But to speak of the WHEN is going just a step out of our limit. We do not know about this When, so we are not permitted to speak. Do you understand what I mean to say Claude?
  8. I will do what I can to seek my Adjuster. I can't tell you how blessed I feel we all are to know these things. How blessed those will likewise be whom we tell.
  9. And this all has to do with allowing your Indwelling Adjuster to do it's job? Are there any clear directions as to HOW to allow your Adjuster to better do it's job on the course to attaining SuperHuman status?
  10. The UB talks about superhuman entities... My question: What IS a SuperHuman exactly?
  11. I guess Claude, you gotta' limit your discussions to what has been revealed by the UB...and i'd recommend, if you have questions about something outside of the pages of the UB, that you post on other forums where your conversation is more fitting. You might understand how difficult it is for a beginner here to discern what was said in the UB and what WASN'T published in the UB. It is not an easy task, and why I favour the idea of nothing else being discussed here except what was revealed in the book...and not other internet sources. It just complicates our study of the UB to be confronted by things OUTSIDE of the book, when our study is concerned strictly with what is IN THE BOOK itself. See what I mean?
  12. One thing we CAN agree on... He is Coming again.
  13. I agree with your last sentence, very much so. There is also a part in the beginning of The Life and Teachings of Jesus that labels Astrology as being superstitious though. (An aside point)
  14. I will give you my thought Claude... I think it would be more effective, personally, to mail off 1,500 pages with ONE similar message on it. That way, the person doesn't (as Jen pointed out) receive the misfortune of receiving something that they have absolutely no idea what to do with. You could, perhaps, construct your own message...and attach a helpful website such as TruthBook.com to it. So if people have further questions, they have a place to go likewise (with quotes from the UB) about what they might think regarding it all. Just a constructive suggestion:)
