I wonder in what ways the universe of universes and reality as presented in the Papers "almost seems" to be a dream? The reasoning and perceptions that go into that are something like this: - We are told that the Trinity, Paradise and everything divine is eternal. - The Master Universe ap...

" Arbitrary" ? Definition: happening by chance with no cause or reason These words describe things, especially events, that happen by chance and do not follow a plan, or have a reason or cause. The most common word for this, and the one with the broadest meaning, is random. Random can be u...

It almost seems that this "creation" that is evolving must be some type of mutually shared dream in the mind of God. I wonder in what ways the universe of universes and reality as presented in the Papers "almost seems" to be a dream? The perspective of universe reality received ...

"Chemical elements" are likely readily available in multiple ways and sources for certain celestials, midwayers, and power transformers' utilization. Time is such a fascinating and puzzling reality dimension. Is the acceleration of time something that happens to time? Or within time? Is ti...

Actually...no gathering of grapes occurred. What the text says happened: 137:4.12 (1530.4) It was gradually dawning upon Jesus what had happened. Of all persons present at the marriage feast of Cana, Jesus was the most surprised. Others had expected him to work a wonder, but that was just what he ha...

Fanofvan, I wil leave you with this, from one of your own posts about the frog/tadpole: Indeed this is but a personal interpretation! So it's ok for you to have a personal interpretation that contradicts the text ( or "interprets" the text for yourself), but not for anyone else? Upon sign...

According to the text below, and regarding the Satania rebellion specifically, there are more than 48 different reasons why justice is delayed by mercy and patience. 12 of those are listed here. Not only are mercy and patience fair, they are also fruitful!! Eternal benefits are experienced and reali...

So...my confusion about the technical aspects of this Paper (and others) was not meant to extend to any others, or to trivialize important details and facts about universe reality. I, personally, am too confused by the Paper being studied here that I don't know if I am swallowing camels or straining...

I think these "gnats" are bigger than 747s!! :wink: Evidently, Paradise and material creation within time and space are finite and not infinite. But there is an infinite (limitless) space for all future creation in the expanding universe of universes. 12:1.14 (129.12) The Outer Space Level...

Don't get me wrong. I do see the beauty and the goodness of the world as well. There lies the problem though, in my mind that's all there should be. Evil and suffering should not exist, not even in the physical realm such as Urantia. It's pretty hard not to be consumed by anger when you hear about ...

Having taken a few days off to absorb the information here and do some self reflection, i did come to a conclusion that i was overly harsh here. I saw and see the world through my own misery and despair, and i admit being wrong here. Thanks for Van for being patient with me. I do not know if i ever...

One of the greatest of all the many assurances found in the Papers is the reality that ALL suffering by ALL beings is temporal. Another is that those souls who suffer the most and overcome their suffering by hope and faith become the greatest of all mercy ministers with the most enlightened experien...

Let me recommend this topic on " What is Assurance?": https://forum.truthbook.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=5434 Jesus said, "...I have absolute confidence in my heavenly Father’s overcare; I am consecrated to doing the will of my Father in heaven. I do not believe that real harm can b...

Evidently, Paradise is the source of and also subject to 'laws' of physics...and is also the 'nucleus' of all creation. All forms of gravity are centered around this nucleus as is all motion and energy. All originate in Paradise and return to this First Source and Center in a continuous operational ...
