Prayer: Jerry: Dearest Father in Heaven, we bow before you this
evening to give thanks for your love and inspiration in our lives and
for helping us to better know and understand you. We thank you for
the association we have with one another and the opportunity we have
to serve each other and learn from each other. We pray that you will
continue to guide and direct us in the things that we say and do so
that we can be of greater service to the greater number and that you
will open our eyes and our hearts to the opportunities that present
themselves everyday. We ask you to be with us now as we lend our
hearts, minds and souls to the messages that are available to us
through your Teachers and through the services of our dedicated
brothers and sisters who receive and convey the information to
us. These things we say and pray for in the name of Jesus Christ.
JarEl: TR, George: Good evening. It is I, your Teacher JarEl. It
is good to be back again and see all of you once again. It is a
privilege that I have to be able to convey my messages of love and
understanding, of patience and insight. There is much knowledge for
you to obtain throughout the universe. There is so much more that
awaits you beyond the veil of death. Most of you have this
understanding and are waiting for that moment, not being too
impatient, but gathering knowledge of things unknown to you.
There is a time and place for everything and there is a moment when
things will be revealed to you. The one thing that we ask of you is
that you trust, as we trust in you. We believe in all of you as
ambassadors. We never feel that we are wasting our time. In you we
have invested much of our energy so that the world may prosper, so
that the world may one day come closer to the age of Light and
Life. Every single one of you is a seed that one day will bloom to
full light. When you do begin to shine and grow, others will notice
and will begin to ask questions themselves.
Many of you have gathered knowledge that is unknown to the rest of
this world. But this knowledge is not meant to be hidden or
sheltered. It is knowledge that has been freely given to you and,
therefore, you must freely give it away. I understand that many of
you find this difficult to do for there are many in this world who
are close-minded and stubborn. But that, my friends, is no major
obstacle to overcome. That is the least of your worries. Just as
easily as a person can be close-minded, easily they can be open
minded as well. This is a matter of opening and closing the door and
when spoken to in the correct manner, that door will most agreeably
open to you. You must learn to use tact and a precise manner of
speaking in order to convey this message of truth that you hold
within your person.
The responsibility that all of you carry is great for this knowledge
shall bring peace to this world. This knowledge shall unite nations
and people. The knowledge that you carry is of utmost importance and
it must not be casually thrown aside like just another interesting
book. You must let people know how important this book is. You must
allow them to see the significance of this book, not only in your
life but in theirs as well. Notice how I never have you make anyone
do anything. You simply present it to them and let them make their
own decisions; for you can never force anyone into believing what you
believe. Neither must you coerce someone into believing what you
believe, nor must you put fear into them. Always present the truth
for what it is and let them make up their own mind.
Imagine yourselves as farmers who are planting seeds as they walk
by. Each seed must be pure and whole; it must contain the truth of
life. The moment you alter that seed, the moment you bring to it
your own version of what the truth is, that seed will not produce
good fruit. But if you plant each seed unaltered, pure and good,
into good soil, that seed will one day bear fruit and the fruit that
it brings will be just as pure as the seed you planted. In the same
way you must plant the seeds in people's hearts.
Give them the truth, let them make up their own mind. Do not try to
skew or compromise your ideas in order that they may more acceptably
receive them. This has been done in the past and you have seen the
consequences of compromises. In this day and age we feel that men
and women are ready to receive the truth for what it is for in the
Urantia Book we plainly state how things are and how the universe is
and how you came to be. Many of you who study this book have plainly
in your mind decided that what you have read is true. If there ever
was any question in your heart, you have settled that question. So
as we give you the truth, so you must also give the truth to others
and allow others to make up their mind.
Every one of you here lives in an age of importance. You are going
through a phase in this world in which everything matters. Precisely
at this moment there are great decisions that are being made in this
world, great discoveries and great consequences. Your world is
rapidly changing and growing and expanding and at the same time your
world is connecting and getting smaller and more intimate. It is an
exciting time for all of you for the world has never been like this
before. Never has there been greater opportunity for you to
communicate with so many people all at once. And now that this
communication is open, it greatly matters what you say and how you
think. It greatly matters how you perceive others and how you treat
others. It greatly matters for you to set an example for your
neighbors who are so adamant to see the rest of the world with skewed
eyes. You are all here to be the soldiers of this world; to show
others the love of humanity and the brotherhood of mankind.
Are there any questions here tonight?
Jerry: JarEl, I would appreciate it if you would share with us how
you would summarize in a short statement or a short phrase what the
basic truth is that is conveyed in the Urantia Book papers. We know
that the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man is a central
theme, but if someone were to ask us, "What is the basic truth that
these papers reveal to the world?" How would you answer that question?
JarEl: TR, George: I would answer it in this way:
There is never anything basic about a truth. A truth is more than
anything you have come across, anything you have imagined or anything
you have perceived. There is more to this world and the next than
you can ever imagine. This book contains many truths, much
wisdom. Aside from the central theme of the Fatherhood of God and
the brotherhood of man there are many more ideals that you can derive
from the book.
There are many guides for living a perfect life and there is much
information that will not only better your life, but those that you
love and your friends and strangers that you pass on the street.
This book also gives you insight to future teachings that you might
receive, such as Morontia mota and the future progress of your life
in eternity. So not only is it a guide book for good living, it is
also a revelation for your future throughout eternity.
It is a book that reveals much more than what it says and,
overall, this book allows you to find your place in this
universe. This book grounds you into the realities of God. It
anchors you in the existence of the universe. It brings identity to
an otherwise chaotic universe.
So to answer your question, Jerry, putting aside the central theme
of this book, the Urantia Book tells you who you are, which is,
perhaps, one of the most important things that you can come across.
Are there any more questions?
Jerry: I would just like to thank you for that. I am glad we can
have your comments recorded because the transcript of that statement
you made of the many truths that are addressed in the papers contains
some wonderful thoughts and ideas to convey to people who ask us
"What is the truth and what are the truths that are revealed in these
papers?" You have really given us a lot of food for thought as well
as information and suggestions as to what we can share with others. Thank you.
Jerry: This is a point of information question mostly. Is the
Teaching Mission continuing to spread in other parts of the world,
beyond the United States? Are there Teacher contacts and individuals
being identified who are able to convey what the Teachers have to say
in other languages and in other countries?
JarEl: TR, George: Without revealing any specifics Jerry, I can
assure you that the Teaching Mission is expanding beyond the borders
of this country. There are more people in this world who are
open-minded, who are open to receiving messages. There are more
people who are preparing themselves and readying themselves as
citizens of the universe. There is a wider consensus of knowledge
that incorporates the brotherhood of man and the Fatherhood of
God. This general acceptance of this knowledge enables humanity to
connect, not only with each other, but with those who bring them
revelation through spiritual contact.
We see this as a great sign of the world changing. The world is
changing and the world is connecting more and there are different
points of light throughout your world. These lights are growing, at
first slow, but as they continue to shine they eventually grow more
rapidly and in more places as well.
Not everyone in the world believes that we are separate. Not
everyone believes that there is only their country and that's
it. People are beginning to see beyond their borders. They are
beginning to see the whole world as one. As your climate changes,
you are beginning to see the effects of what humanity has done and
how that can affect the entire world as well. So the world is
becoming as one. But you yet have a long ways to go for that oneness
to be complete. The more you connect with others my friends, the
more you help this world heal itself from its loneliness and isolation.
That is all for tonight, goodnight.
