First....agree completely with Boom...NO mortal or temporal choices prevent God's love and mercy. Those choices may interfere with our progress or ability to RECEIVE mercy but I hardly think sexual orientation rises to such an obstacle in any way. Sexual orientation and its social acceptence/rejecti...

There are important lessons for us mere mortals in this divine process, far more practical to our ascendency itself. I have developed some skill (relative to many of my fellows anyway) of "making lemonade out of lemons". Anytime life sucks, if one simply adds sugar and water and stirs (lov...

Babuk - our wise and learned friend - you have explained your position well and I cannot disagree. Thank you for sharing a very important perspective. I fear my limited view of history and modern times leaves me in no position to say otherwise. I believe those who are "superior" have degen...

Babuk - forgive my lack of understanding and I anticipate your clarification. But racism is far beyond evil is it not? For evil is but an error and when repeated becomes sin and when combined with any motive of anger or hate or fear becomes iniquity. And are you suggesting that the brutal and exploi...

Should have said grandpa died in a prisoner of war camp (Libby in Va.) after dutifully returning to his unit as an ambulance driver/teamster after planting his "corn". (Sorry Grandpa). One very difficult truth for me has been the UBs honest, if brutal, presentation of humanity's slow, horr...

Another interesting element to our "retardation" is the hazaards of global primitivism and the accidents within time. My great, great grandmother was conceived when her father went AWOL during the Civil War to plant his corn (and visit his wife obviously) and then died in a prison camp bef...

I thank you. But I am but a novice/apprentice compared to many, including some here whose words and love I find inspiring, enlightened, and comforting. It is true that capacity comes from experience and it is natural that the more one gives love and forgets self, the more easy it is to give love and...

Hmmmmm...so, like attending or hosting study groups, or sponsoring/attending regional and national conferences, and placing books in libraries and old folks homes and prisons, and raising money for disastor victims, or feeding the poor, or housing abused or homeless children and battered women, etc....

Then I have missed the point of your criticism of the internet. So God can/does use the internet as an expression of His creation to minister to those of us in need and approachable by such a method? I think so too.

Instant and universal communication on planetary scale is but one progressive prerequisite for the next generation of The Gospel to flourish and find root. The printing press was the first step in that progression, the internet but the current vehicle. The source of Truth is Absolute but its distrib...

Majestone - now I must admonish and give friendly warning. Your last post sounds judgemental and like a presumption that those readers and believers who post or roam on these boards are "hiding their light under the bushel" and do not act in their faith as we "should". How would ...

Boom - GREAT!! I was sure we were together on this issue. This IS an issue - of what/which "progression" are we discussing? I certainly agree that far more is required for EACH succession of Circle and effort and knowledge must expand, perhaps exponentially, for each progression. Indeed, I...

Boom - I did not mean to suggest that facts and reality are unimportant...they are especially important to me. 99.99% of our ascendency progress will depend on and result from greater context (facts) and perspective of and experience with those facts. Knowledge is power and brings confidence and pro...

Majestone - Don't disagree with anything you mean but I may with some of the words used (not your motive, just your act/word). However, once we begin to bring any specificity to the "doing", we invite contention to the party. Suddenly, some acts are blessed, or required, while others are c...

Many truth seekers are perplexed by finding, knowing, and doing The Father's will. And to do so within the daily stream of life's endless temporal choices and challenges which can deliver drama, distraction, exhaustion, mistakes, even failures. The life of the mortal's free-will results can confound...
