106:9.5 (1174.1) The paradox created by the experiential and the existential viewpoints is inevitable and is predicated in part on the fact that the Paradise Trinity and the Trinity of Trinities are each an eternity relationship which mortals can only perceive as a time-space relativity. The human c...

Where does the personally assigned guardian seraphim physically reside? So...celestials and angels are material beings with physicality which occupy their own, personal space or location. There are different levels of materiality. Seraphim reside in the morontia level of reality. But they are very ...

113:4.2 (1245.2) Mortal man, subject to Adjuster leading, is also amenable to seraphic guidance. The Adjuster is the essence of man’s eternal nature; the seraphim is the teacher of man’s evolving nature—in this life the mortal mind, in the next the morontia soul. On the mansion worlds you will be co...

On the function and blessings of suffering as a repercussion of the experiential origins of evolutionary ascendency: 32:3.10 (361.5) The fact of animal evolutionary origin does not attach stigma to any personality in the sight of the universe as that is the exclusive method of producing one of the t...

32:3.8 (361.3) Excepting perfect beings of Deity origin, all will creatures in the superuniverses are of evolutionary nature, beginning in lowly estate and climbing ever upward, in reality inward. Even highly spiritual personalities continue to ascend the scale of life by progressive translations fr...

Correction for incomplete copy and paste above: 1:5.1 (27.3) Do not permit the magnitude of God, his infinity, either to obscure or eclipse his personality. “He who planned the ear, shall he not hear? He who formed the eye, shall he not see?” The Universal Father is the acme of divine personality; h...

Clearly, we cannot grasp the existential realities presented here from an experiential perspective. Perhaps we never will. But the facts of potentiality and its actualization creating ever new realities and potential by creative partnerships of the existential and experiential beings from eternity a...

You may know about Joseph Campbell's work decades ago about the same subject of the common and shared human myths from isolated and disparate cultures separated by great distances and epochs.

I am watching the same series right now too!! Actually, I have found the first 3 episodes to specifically answer eerily to track the UB presentation of the Andite global migrations presented in Paper 79. The UB offers a very robust historical timelinein Papers 78-81. I'll look into your dates of int...

106:8.21 (1172.6) THE THIRD LEVEL: In an unqualified hypothesis of the second level of the Trinity of Trinities, there is embraced the correlation of every phase of every kind of reality that is, or was, or could be in the entirety of infinity. The Supreme Being is not only spirit but also mind and ...

Apologies...lengthy but so relevant: 5. Survival of the Human Self 112:5.1 (1232.2) Selfhood is a cosmic reality whether material, morontial, or spiritual. The actuality of the personal is the bestowal of the Universal Father acting in and of himself or through his manifold universe agencies. To say...

I agree. It sounds more racial (human-race) and less personal or experiential in the text to me too, as you described above. The "material origin" and "evolving mentality of your immature human nature" and "animal fear" distorted by "useless anxiety". Perhaps ...

9:5.5 (103.3) Because the Third Person is the source of mind, do not presume to reckon that all phenomena of mind are divine. Human intellect is rooted in the material origin of the animal races . Universe intelligence is no more a true revelation of God who is mind than is physical nature a true re...

Good questions. I have more confusion and uncertainty than opinion on this one. What is the "mortal nature"? 47:8.7 (538.5) During the sojourn on world number six the mansion world students achieve a status which is comparable with the exalted development characterizing those evolutionary ...
