“All the seeds have been planted, and now it is time for you to experience that personal contact with the Creative Force of the universe by reaching out in faith and sincerely asking for what you need to sprout the roots of divine assurance”.
— Teacher Ophelius
Teacher, Thought Adjuster:
Religion has been greatly distorted in this confused world. Many consider religion must take the lives of those they regard as enemies of the faith, simply because they think differently. The efforts of Light Workers who promote a new era of understanding on this planet should focus on what exists in common in all religions – the seed of truth that is contained in them all.
In the past, religious people have strived to seek out differences and they strived to maintain the integrity of their doctrine. For Urantia to move into the age of Light and Life, human beings must explore the roots of their creeds and traditions and discover the truth behind each of them. All the religions of this world arose from the true spiritual experiences of their founders. Over time they suffered from the influence of others who had not lived these experiences and offered their personal interpretation, sometimes with the best intentions, and sometimes not so much. Many rebelled against the abuses of religious leaders and set themselves apart creating their own varieties based on the same creeds.
In this Correcting Time, no new religions should arise and the search for every human being must become a personal one, simply to establish a connection with the presence of God – the Thought Adjuster – within each human being. Ideally, this would be the purpose of all religions and it is something each person must achieve quite by themselves.
Therefore, Light Workers should focus on the simple truths. Promote the idea that everyone has direct access to the Father, without the need for intermediaries or human agencies. The Father does not differentiate between His children and anyone who wants to find Him can do so, if he or she keeps this desire alive in their hearts. Everything else is superficial. The only thing that will cause a permanent transformation of the human being, and the sole cause for the spiritual progress comes from the sincere desire of a human being to find the Father in Heaven.
Forget the sacred books, the commandments, traditions and rules. Let each one search within their own heart for truth, beauty, and goodness. These three attributes cannot be confused with something that does not possess these same attributes, unless the mental clarity of the individual has somehow been perverted. All that possesses these three attributes is an expression of the Father and when the creature sincerely seeks spiritual enlightenment, he will find what he needs within his own being. In this age there will no longer be spiritual teachers because everyone will discover that the best teacher already resides within their own mind.
Here is the main requirement of all religions and the only thing that will produce a positive change in the individual: try to know the Father’s Will and dedicate your life to doing His Will. Seek the Love of God within you and express this Love to your fellows. That is all. Whoever ignores this fundamental truth will not be saved, even if he becomes an expert connoisseur of the sacred books, or a scrupulous follower of religious laws and traditions. However, those who would consecrate themselves to this task and keep alive in their hearts the desire to be like God, even if they stumble, they will already walk the path that will lead them directly to the personal presence of the Father in Heaven.
