Set your mind at work to solve its problems; teach your intellect to work for you; refuse longer to be dominated by fear like an unthinking animal. Your mind should be your courageous ally in the solution of your life problems rather than your being, as you have been, its abject fear-slave and the bond servant of depression and defeat. But most valuable of all, your potential of real achievement is the spirit which lives within you, and which will stimulate and inspire your mind to control itself and activate the body if you will release it from the fetters of fear and thus enable your spiritual nature to begin your deliverance from the evils of inaction by the power-presence of living faith.

Urantia 130:6.3

Is materialism a fact?

No it is only a speculative philosophy.

It is still possible God exists

it remains in the realm of possibility that Spirits and spiritual realities are real

Wow Uranon I never though of Inaction as an Evil. However, it makes sense. If evil is the choice of Not doing Gods will, then inaction is Evil.

There are many ways of looking at sin, but from the universe philosophic viewpoint sin is the attitude of a personality who is knowingly resisting cosmic reality. Error might be regarded as a misconception or distortion of reality. Evil is a partial realization of, or maladjustment to, universe realities. But sin is a purposeful resistance to divine reality—a conscious choosing to oppose spiritual progress—while iniquity consists in an open and persistent defiance of recognized reality and signifies such a degree of personality disintegration as to border on cosmic insanity. - UB67:1.4

good point

56:10.20.To finite man truth, beauty, and goodness embrace the full revelation of divinity reality. As this love-comprehension of Deity finds spiritual expression in the lives of God-knowing mortals, there are yielded the fruits of divinity: intellectual peace, social progress, moral satisfaction, spiritual joy, and cosmic wisdom. The advanced mortals on a world in the seventh stage of light and life have learned that love is the greatest thing in the universe—and they know that God is love.

56:10.21.Love is the desire to do good to others.

are you in a mental prison?

are you imprisoned by negative thoughts or a depressive mindset?

are you tormented by undesirable moods and a negative mindset

if you are in a mental prison, torment youself no longer,

you need to break out, you need to escape

you need to change your mind and shift your perspective

here you are in infinity, your mind is open with potential, open like infinity

there are no bounds to what you can imagine or conceive

be in awe of the vastness and wonderful creative potential before you

in the blink of an eye your consciousness can be elevated

your perceptions can be heightened with the presence of your genius self

it is the self of eternal spiritual wisdom and composure

it strengthens you with insight and celestial poise and confidence

it lifts your mind to the plane of superconsciousness wherein cosmic intelligence guides you

then who should you fear when the fearless Lord dwells in your heart and peers through your eyes

then who can move you from the eternal victory of spirit?

with a single thought you can escape your mental prison

it is such a weak prison when you think about it

you can demolish it with a brilliant idea

your mind is the best tool you have

with it you can create things grander than what has been created before

your mind is creative and when the enlightened individual intends to use this creative mind, great things happen

things happen beyond what you thought possible

so do not limit what your genius self can do for you and your mind

be open to its power and intend to express its creative genius and you will

overcome your undesirable patterns with its guidance

you can instantly experience greater thought patterns and emotional reaction patterns

the new age movement is a mental prison and urantia is a manifestation of it



maybe not

despite negative manifestations the new age movement could still have a beneficial netgain

to say it is entirely bad or devoid of truthful manifestations is most certainly wrong



in what ways?

There is no crystals, traditions, dogmas, leadership, church, tithes, etc

How does it even qualify as a religion, or a cult?

I am secure. I am safe. I am not in danger here or now. I am not afraid.

I am satisfied sexually. I am not currently full of lust or need. I let go of any guilt.

I am not ashamed. I am free to exert my will in responsibility and love.

I love. I love myself, I love those in my life. I love those indirectly in my life. I love life. I release any grief.

I am honest. I prefer truth to lies. I prefer plain, direct but kind speech to all.

I am real. I am here. I am not permanent, I am interdependent to my surroundings. I am composed of composites composed of composites.

I am only an infinity small drop in an infinity large ocean of energy. I let go of the small self, the ego, the idea of a distinct separate being, to embrace the cosmic self, the largest self, the all inclusive Whole. Let there be no self, but only Oneness with the Whole. There is only ever this moment. There is only ever here. There is only ever now.

Let go.

Let go.

Let go.

any more cool moral code lists?


File: 393ed2518a769a6⋯.jpg (6.45 KB, 200x200, 1:1, MyrtleFillmore.jpg)

The answer comes from within:

"I am not what I seem. Flesh and blood do not reveal me to myself."

Back of personal estimate comes the consciousness that I am inseparably joined with Thee, and until my union is acknowledged and consummated through divine cooperation of Spirit, soul, and body, I am not content nor at one with Thee in consciousness.

"I AM that I AM."

"I am thine all possibility."

Where I am in reality is in Thy bosom. Where I am in the world of effects depends upon what I think I am.

Lord of my Being, I would be disentangled from the servitude and vicissitudes of the formed world. I would do all Thou wouldst have me do. I would be "in the world but not of it." I would dwell in the gloriousness of Thine omnipresent companionship. I would always be still enough to hear Thy voice instead of the confusion and clamor of senses. I would know and not assume. I would truly live and not exist.

Give me, dear Lord, Thy conscious support and let me be filled with the love and zeal that give character and direction to the activities of mind and body.

"I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one."

Never limit your view of life by any past experience.

Spirituality is natural goodness. God is not a person; God is a presence personified in us. Spirituality is not a thing; it is the atmosphere of God’s Presence, goodness, truth, and beauty.

I am guided by the same intelligence and inspired by the same imagination which scatters the moon beams across the waves and holds the forces of nature in it’s grasp.

We are not depending on a reed shaken by the wind, but on the Principle of Life Itself, for all that we have or ever shall need. It is not some Power, or a great Power, it is All Power.

If you wish to know the truth about your business or your profession, know that it is an activity of good. It is an activity of your partnership with the infinite.

Love is within us. It cannot be destroyed. It can be ignored. To the extent that we abandon love we will feel it has abandoned us. Denying love is our only problem, and embracing it is the only answer. Through the power of love, we can let go of past history and begin again. Love heals, forgives, and makes whole.

Since the only life you can have is the life of the Spirit within you, you need but permit Its radiance to flow through your thought into self-expression. You are surrounded by a dynamic force, a great surge of living power. You are immersed in and saturated with the vital essence of Life. Its presence permeates everything, binding all together in one complete whole.

We have within us, a power that is greater than anything we shall ever contact in the outer, a power that can overcome every obstacle in our life and set us safe, satisfied and at peace, healed and prosperous, in a new light, and in a new life.

Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he thinks into it.

But we are born to be happy, to be abundantly supplied with every good thing, to have fun in living, to consciously unite with the Divine Power that is around us and within us, and to grow and expand forever.

meaning the unveiling.

you live inside of the earth. outer space is inner space. the milky way is just a band splitting the seam in the celestial sphere at 60 degrees like a mother's swaddling band.

there are multiple spheres of glass enveloping inner space diverginig light in a spectrum gradually from zenith to lift up from the earth parralel to the terminator to reconverge with the center of heaven like a circuit.

this is what lifts up your line of sight, gradually clips boats and bridges, and occluding the land mass curving upwards.

your line of sight is hitting the underside of clouds and converging with the center of heaven within every degree within 180 degrees of your fov.

the celestial sphere is therefore figuratively split in two by your line of sight refracting through multiple polarizing bowed spherical glass prisms meaning the half of the celestial sphere visible by your fov compresses/inverts around your 180 degree fov over the optical edit of the horizonal crease.

the sun is going to stop in the sky dissolving the heavens with fervent heat. and the central octahedron is going to descend to the south pole to marry and replenish earth. replacing the omega beta wave moon phases reflecting the light of the sun on a curve through multiple polarizing bowed spherical glass prisms enveloping inner space. the circuit and curtain of heaven will break and you will be able to see the land mass curve upwards once again. hence the unveiling of the prison cell earth you live in.

The shepherd is going to corrall his people over martial law before this happens. get ready. this is what donald trump, q anon, and majestic 12 are working to expose after incriminating the dems as being unable to compromise on border security.

They have precognition and forsight of judgement to come.

>Full Day of Eating ||Vegetarian Bodybuilding Diet|| Gym Diet for Muscle building


On this week's edition of Spiritual Awakening Radio we explore the history of vegetarianism and even veganism in the great world religions and philosophies:

Akhenaten the "Heretic" Egyptian Pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty, who ruled for 17 years;

Hebrew Bible, First Book of Moses: Genesis;

Yoga Shastra, a sutra or scripture of Jainism;

Bhagavad Gita of Krishna;

Srimad Bhagavatam;

The Laws of Manu, a kind of "Hindu Torah" or Book of Laws;

Pythagoras and the Pythagoreans;

Porphyry, a 3rd century AD Neo-Platonist philosopher;

The Vegetarian Prayer of Thanksgiving in the Epilogue of Asclepius of the Corpus Hermeticum, and the same prayer again, as it also turns up in the Nag Hammadi Library of Egypt, the Gnostic Gospels;

Early Church “Heresy Hunters” that used to require meat-eating on Sundays as a way to discover who the veg Gnostics were in their midst;

Philo of Alexandria's description of veg meals at a Jewish Therapeutae monastic community in Alexandria perhaps related to the Essenes;

The Bahai Faith: Baha’u’llah, ‘Abdu’l-Baha, and Shoghi Effendi – prophecies of a vegan future of humanity;

Vegetarianism in Islam: The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), Rabia of Basra, Bawa Muhaiyaddeen and the Sufis;

John the Baptist, who ate locust bean (carob) flour, not locusts – BEANS NOT BUGS;

and the Mystery of the Missing Veg Saying of Jesus found in Luke 21: 34 of the Evangelion Da-Mepharreshe – the Old Syriac-Aramaic manuscript of the New Testament Gospels but is no longer present in Greek manuscripts;

If this is true, how do you save yourself from the current terrible narrative you are in?



>the choosing of new and better reaction habits in the place of older and inferior reaction patterns

100:4.1 Religious living is devoted living, and devoted living is creative living, original and spontaneous. New religious insights arise out of conflicts which initiate the choosing of new and better reaction habits in the place of older and inferior reaction patterns. New meanings only emerge amid conflict; and conflict persists only in the face of refusal to espouse the higher values connoted in superior meanings.

Would you scale the highest heaven,

Would you pierce the lowest hell,

Live in dreams of constant beauty,

Or in basest thinkings dwell.

For your thoughts are heaven above you,

And your thoughts are hell below,

Bliss is not, except in thinking,

Torment naught but thought can know.

Worlds would vanish but for thinking;

Glory is not but in dreams;

And the Drama of the ages

From the Thought Eternal streams.

Dignity and shame and sorrow,

Pain and anguish, love and hate

Are but maskings of the mighty

Pulsing Thought that governs Fate.

As the colors of the rainbow

Makes the one uncolored beam,

So the universal changes

Make the One Eternal Dream.

And the Dream is all within you,

And the Dreamer waiteth long

For the Morning to awake him

To the living thought and strong.

That shall make the ideal real,

Make to vanish dreams of hell

In the highest, holiest heaven

Where the pure and perfect dwell.

Evil is the thought that thinks it;

Good, the thought that makes it so

Light and darkness, sin and pureness

Likewise out of thinking grow.

Dwell in thought upon the Grandest,

And the Grandest you shall see;

Fix your mind upon the Highest,

And the Highest you shall be.
