Donna: Dear Heavenly Father thank you so much for this meeting and for all
of our friends; brothers and sisters who are gathered here. Please open
our minds and our hearts to hear the truth that you have for us from the
Teachers, from Michael, from Nebadonia, from the Spirit of Truth, wherever
the truth comes, let us be open to it. Help us to be wiser, help us to be
filled with Your Love and Light so that we can be better ambassadors for
you in this time. We love you very much, in Michaels name, amen.
JarEl: TR, George: Good evening, it is I, your teacher, JarEl. It is good
to be among you once again, among my dear friends. Welcome, to those of
you who are here for the first time. I greet you with open arms, as I am
sure the others sitting around you also greet you. It has been awhile
since I have addressed this group. I surely do miss speaking to you. I am
glad that we are once again on schedule. I would like to take this
opportunity to thank all of you for coming here tonight. For making the
effort and for taking time out of your busy lives in order to join us.
Tonight I would like to discuss with you the recognition of the presence of
God within you. As you were speaking in your prior conversation, God does
exist in each and everyone of you as your Thought-Adjuster. God quietly
communicates within your mind and your heart so that you may come forward
and inward to his love and grace. God is quiet so that you may perfect
yourself to become who you are destined to be. God sees you as a perfect
being and you exist in this way. He does not see your imperfections for
you have none in your future self. You are perfect in everyway to God. It
is up to you to bring yourself into this perfection that exists in Gods
mind. It is up to you to listen to his will and his guidance. He quietly
nudges you, guiding you into his light.
How do you listen to these messages? Simply by quieting your mind and
listening to your heart and mind, that is where God exists. This is where
the wisdom of the universe will be poured through. You must quiet your
mind in order for this portal to open so that the information may flow
through. Many are busy, not taking the time to quiet their heart and mind,
entertaining too many ideas and worrying about conflicts. For many it is
very hard to have a moment of peace; for they are in constant struggle and
chaos. They find it very hard to sit in silence. For those that do learn
to quiet their minds, they are able to do this because they have faith in
God and in the Universe around them and have learned to trust their
Thought-Adjuster. They have learned to listen. When you learn this very
practical state of mind you become aware of not only the people around you
but also of the invisible that exists all around you. You become aware of
Teachers, you become aware of your Thought-Adjuster and you become aware of
Angels and Midwayers. There is a whole order of angelic help who are
willing to assist you in everyway. When you quiet your mind you begin to
listen to the Fathers Will.
The Fathers Will is LOVE and understanding. It is the brotherhood of
man. The Father would like for all of you to get along and to resolve your
differences with one another. The Father would like for you just to love
one another and to extend your hand out towards your brothers and
sisters. These are general suggestions that the Father gives to all of
us. The Father speaks to you in a more personal manner when you make the
connection yourself. He speaks to you in a more personal way, helping you
in your everyday life. You can make all of your decisions based on the
Fathers Will. However, in order to make those decisions you must learn to
listen, you must learn to meditate.
It is true that there are signs that are posted throughout your journey in
life. There are situations that are presented to you in your life. It is
up to you whether you want to act on those opportunities or not. Life is
but a string of opportunities to connect you with the Fathers
Will. Opportunities are handed to you to act upon. Some are very subtle,
yet others are as clear as day. However, do not feel bad if you happen to
miss an opportunity or perhaps make the wrong decision on a certain
situation. All these things can be corrected in time. What is important
is that you decide; what is important is that you act upon the opportunity
that is given to you.
Part of your life experiences in knowing God is being of service to one
another. Understanding this aspect of your spiritual growth will help you
in the future. The service aspect is perhaps one of the most important
aspects of your spirituality. This service-oriented duty shall remain with
you throughout your whole entire spiritual career, on the Mansion Worlds
and well into Havona. So get used to helping others, get used to being of
service. If it seems like a chore to you right now, perhaps there are
other aspects of your own life that you need to examine and try to
understand why you feel this way.
It is not right to be selfish, however, the universe allows you that space
to become selfish. The universe allows you to become greedy and the
universe allows you to become evil. We will not stop your actions and we
will not make decisions for you. We will only give advice and be there as
guides for you. It is entirely up to you to make your own decisions and
your own judgments. We are only here to help. We are very appreciative
when you take our help and grow with it.
Regardless of the way you act or the way you have been, the universe is all
forgiving. It shall welcome you with open arms. We allow you this space
so that you can exercise your free will. We allow you to have complete
knowledge of the inner workings of your free will and with your free will
come closer to God. God as your Father shall be so grateful to his
children who come to him in their free will. God is even more overjoyed
with those children who have lost their way and who have turned back to
him. Free will is key to your existence. Are there any questions?
Henry: Yes JarEl, thank you for your encouragement and your
like to ask a couple of questions. 1. Can you make some comments on how
are we to stand this spiritual stance in the times which we live where
everyone seems to be moved by some wind of rhetoric or agenda or
confusion? Its like a little twister, could you say a few words on that,
please? Thank you.
JarEl: TR, George. Thank you Henry for your question, I will try to answer
you as clearly as I can. In times like these when there is so much said
and so much done and so much chaos in the world it is important that you
remain steadfast in your faith. In your light and with your connection
with God you are messengers that carry forth the light and truth. If you
preoccupy yourselves with getting caught up with the rhetoric, then you run
the risk of this light be extinguished from your hand.
Henry: Those are pretty strong words JarEl.
JarEl: TR, George. I am not finished. There shall be forever people and
leaders who will try to sway humanity to their own agenda. The true agenda
of the Universe shall forever remain the same and you know what it is that
I am talking about. If you remain true to this Universe agenda, the
politics of the world shall not be effective over you. Remember that
everyone is your brother and sister, and you must treat them accordantly no
matter how unintelligent you may think them to be. It shall forever remain
true that they hold a Thought-Adjuster within them. One day you will meet
them again on the Morontia Realm and they shall remain your brothers and
sisters. So treat everyone with respect, forgive them for their ignorance
and forgive yourself for your arrogance. Perhaps you will be able to build
a bridge between you which can unite all of humanity. This shall remain
our goal until you are brought into Light and Life. All I ask you is to
remember the original destiny for this world. You should understand that
whatever goes on or what ever changes are made within your political
structure or society itself is only temporary, but your destiny is Light
and Life. Are there any other questions?
Henry: I just have one more question JarEl then I will be done. Thank you
for your words which are quite comforting to be pulled back into a larger
picture on a more Universal perspective and a Universe religion. 2. Is it
possible for you to say a few words about the current status of
agondonters? How important is the agondonter status to the Universe of
JarEl: TR, George. Agondonter status to the Universe is important, for you
are creations of the Universe who can believe without seeing. This being
said my friend does not quality you to think of yourself as chosen or
special among the rest of the Universe. It is a gift to have this
status. It is a virtue and, yes, many are envious of your status. Yes and
perhaps you have been tried but it remains that only a few leave this world
with full Agondonter status. There are many levels that have not yet been
discussed. The majority of Urantians leave this earth with less then half
Agondonter status. So even though you may be aware of this status, does
not automatically qualify you with full Agondonter status. In the
Universe, we admire those who leave Urantia with full status. For they
have proven themselves as true sons of God. Yes, they shall be given
special positions in the Universe which will allow them to have more of a
managerial status, but, given as a whole, your Agondonter status does not
amount to that much. I am sorry to have to say this to all of you but you
must be humbled in this way. Do not let this go to your head. We are all
brothers and sisters in this Universe.
Henry: JarEl, thank you so for what you are saying, I think my concerns
are in a little different aspect, not so much am I concerned personally
about this status or anything. What I am interested in knowing is - is
this planet being kept the way it is, because of Agondonter status? That is
what I am interested in you commenting on.
JarEl: TR, George. The future plans of either Urantia or the coming of
the Magisterial Son shall remain secret for now. We do not want to create
unwarranted commotion over an event that may or may not come. Rest assured
that within your generation your Agondonter status will remain in tact.
Henry: If I may be so bold JarEl, as to ask: is it worth leaving the
planet in the mess that its in because of the Agondonter status, from the
JarEl: TR, George. My answer is yes and no. For it is both beneficial to
be alive on Urantia at this moment and leave this world in the chaos that
its in. However, it would also be beneficial if it were in Light and
Life. So there are no right answers and this is an experimental planet so
that the experience that you encounter within your life time is your own
and it is unique. So given as a whole, yes it is beneficial to leave it in
the chaos it is in.
Henry: Thank you JarEl.
JarEl: TR, George. Any other questions?
My friends, it has been very enjoyable to have the opportunity to come to
you again and have this beautiful conversation. I look forward to meeting
with you in two weeks. Good night.
All: Thank you JarEl.
THE URANTIA BOOK
PAPER 50 - THE PLANETARY PRINCES
7. THE REWARDS OF ISOLATION
Page 578: On first thought it might appear that Urantia and its associated
isolated worlds are most unfortunate in being deprived of the beneficent
presence and influence of such superhuman personalities as a Planetary
Prince and a Material Son and Daughter. But isolation of these spheres
affords their races a unique opportunity for the exercise of faith and for
the development of a peculiar quality of confidence in cosmic reliability
which is not dependent on sight or any other material consideration. It may
turn out, eventually, that mortal creatures hailing from the worlds
quarantined in consequence of rebellion are extremely fortunate. We have
discovered that such ascenders are very early intrusted with numerous
special assignments to cosmic undertakings where unquestioned faith and
sublime confidence are essential to achievement.
On Jerusem the ascenders from these isolated worlds occupy a residential
sector by themselves and are known as the agondonters, meaning evolutionary
will creatures who can believe without seeing, persevere when isolated, and
triumph over insuperable difficulties even when alone. This functional
grouping of the agondonters persists throughout the ascension of the local
universe and the traversal of the superuniverse; it disappears during the
sojourn in Havona but promptly reappears upon the attainment of Paradise
and definitely persists in the Corps of the Mortal Finality. Tabamantia is
an agondonter of finaliter status, having survived from one of the
quarantined spheres involved in the first rebellion ever to take place in
the universes of time and space.
All through the Paradise career, reward follows effort as the result of
causes. Such rewards set off the individual from the average, provide a
differential of creature experience, and contribute to the versatility of
ultimate performances in the collective body of the finaliters.
