Consciousness, Conscience, Soul, and Divine Guidance

Sunday, 2 April, 2017

Chris: Teachers, a question was asked, “What is the difference between human consciousness and the soul? How does conscience and Thought Adjuster guidance differ?

Teacher Ophelius:
Thank you for the questions. First let me say that the explanation of consciousness and the soul are subject to the primitive forms of human language and human intellect which limits or constrains the more concise meanings for which they may be understood by the morontial mind or spirit mind. We shall then proceed with this caveat in mind in 600 words or less!

What does it mean to be on the Spiritual Path?

Sunday, 19 March, 2017
on the path

Chris: Teachers, a reader asks: What does it mean to be “On the Spiritual Path?” So many people speak about “Mind, Body, Spirit – Mind, Body Soul,” interchangeably—participating in Yoga, healing, and meditation groups—or joining churches—practicing religion? Being on a spiritual path sounds like a more unified concept? Could you please speak about this?

Teacher Ophelius: Simply put, the “Spirit” is the Indwelling Presence of the Universal Father—your Thought Adjuster. The Soul is the emerging morontial being that you are becoming—all the life experiences and values that your Thought Adjuster has gathered and deemed of survival value are retained in the soul like a container for all things True, Beautiful, and Good—your “true self.” It is this growing and emerging part of you that survives and lives on into the hereafter where you shall continue to “walk the spiritual path.”

spiritual abundance

Teacher Ophelius:
Today, my dear friends and students on the path, we would like to discourse on the importance of our shared mission to enlighten, inform, guide, and teach the hungry souls of Urantia. There are many branches, leaves, and roots that feed and contribute to the mighty tree of the Correcting Time and each part of that system has its unique role and vital function that allows for a greater understanding of Great Plan at various levels of human comprehension. We are partners in this endeavor—Spirit is the light shining on the leaves and you are the water and nutrients flowing up through the roots. Together we grow and together we enjoy life as it is provided by the Creator in this great forest—the universes of time.

Let us all find a way to bring Peace

Sunday, 19 February, 2017
chains of deceased humans

Chris: Teachers, how is it that the Borderland around Urantia becomes so populated with the unresolved energy of deceased humans? What thoughts, emotions, and conditions in life lead to this state where the awareness of the former life gets trapped in a limbo-like existence leaving the soul empty and waiting for resolution? What can we do in life to assure a more fluid transition to afterlife and find peace at the end of physical life?

Ophelius: Dear one, thank you for asking this question, for until we can successfully curb the tide of confusion in the minds of those living on Urantia, we shall continue to accumulate this unresolved energy in the Borderland which places a drag on planetary evolution. It is a very complex problem and is one of the primary drivers for the Correcting Time to “bring to light” the meanings of life—the important values which are needed to move the soul and the entire organism of humanity forward toward a more enlightened “stasis” where new souls being born into the world are co-creating and experiencing Truth, Beauty, and Goodness at new and unexplored levels—living a quality life as a universe citizen who understands the basics of the Great Plan—that they are partners with the Creator—that they are divinely loved children with eternal careers where they hold the potentials for god-like attainment and achievement that spans many realms, worlds, and many lifetimes beyond this nursery world of origin.

Memories in the Sleep Life of the Soul

Sunday, 12 February, 2017
sleep life

Chris: Teachers, could you please discourse on the nature and purpose of “spiritual dreams?”

Teacher Ophelius
Dear One, this is a topic for which we may first want to ask, “Why do we dream?” There are many reasons and purposes for what you call, “spiritual dreams,” and if I had to summarize the manifold purposes of these “communications” and bring them under one heading it would be: “Experience.” Spirit dreams prepare you for the next adventure in your ascendant life.
