Teaching by Niánn Emerson Chase
In April 2002 many of us enjoyed an inspiring slide show with music, photos, and poetry that focused mainly on the beauty of nature. There were four parts the first a series of pictures of persons and landscape accompanied by a song that praised the presence of God seen and experienced in so many places in life. The second vignette was composed of photos of Yosemite Park with classical music that enhanced our appreciation of the beauty of divine pattern that can be seen in natural settings as well as heard in the notes of music created by one of nature’s products human beings. Framing the scenes and music were the words of the great naturalist and environmentalist, John Muir, who with his words painted pictures of the natural world which a blind person could have seen in his or her mind’s eye while we with sight saw it on the screen. The third section was a result of the “9/11″ tragedy and was a plea in music, photos of people in love and in war, and verbal expression for peaceful avenues in solving the problems of terrorism rather than the violent methods presently being used. The fourth was more personal, with photos of the red rocks of Sedona, works of art found at Cathedral Rock Lodge done by Global Community Communications’s CosmoArtists, and pictures of some of the community members. These local scenes on screen were accompanied by the live flute playing of our own Jeru and a poem read that was written by another of our family, Tarenta. The poem spoke of: love for God; a relationship with Him as a divine Father; joyful appreciation for life and destiny He has given us human beings; and the desire to continually grow in compassion and stewardship for all of life, especially other human beings.
It was fitting that the show ended with the reading of this poem that reflected the basic values and attitudes of the individuals who are aligned with Divine Administration. In fact, that entire slide show encompassed what true environmentalism within divine administration principles is about acknowledgment of the Universal Father as the First Source and Center; appreciation for the beauty of divine pattern as seen in nature and in human personalities; human expression of the many facets of divine pattern through art, music, and literature; and daily acts of love and stewardship for the natural world as well as for human beings and their societies. In other words, an environmentalist in Divine Administration is actively participating in living and expressing the beauty, truth, and goodness of God, the Universal Father.
We refer to God as Father, not just as “First Source” or “Spirit” or “the Universe” or “the Creator” or “Light.” God is all of those and so much more. In the Fifth Epochal Revelation (FER) found in The URANTIA Book, the first five papers have to do with God and Paper 1 is entitled “The Universal Father,” establishing immediately the nature of God as a person, a parent. It is stated in that paper,
The eternal God is infinitely more than reality idealized or the universe personalized. God is not simply the supreme desire of men and women, the mortal quest objectified. Neither is God merely a concept, the power-potential of righteousness. The Universal Father is not a synonym for nature, neither is he natural law personified. God is a transcendent reality, not merely human’s traditional concept of supreme values. God is not a psychological focalization of spiritual meanings, neither is he ˜the noblest work of humankind.’ God may be any or all of these concepts in the minds of men and women, but he is more. He is a saving person and a loving Father to all who enjoy spiritual peace on earth, and who crave to experience personality survival in death. (p. 23:05-24:00)
Though we can see an aspect of God, a faint reflection of His beauty in nature, we cannot find Him completely in the physical world of nature. He is found in all levels of universe reality the physical, the mindal, and the spiritual and He is expressed in personality.
The second paper in The URANTIA Book is entitled “The Nature of God,” and on page 35 we are told, “Even your olden prophets understood the eternal, never-beginning, never-ending, circular nature of the Universal Father.” We students of The URANTIA Book know that within that circular nature of God is a complex network of circuitry that has its foundation on the physical circuits of Paradise, the mind circuits of the Paradise Third Source Mother, and the spirit circuits of the Paradise Second Source Son, all unified through the Paradise First Source circuits of personality.
Papers 85 through 92 of The URANTIA Book deal with how religion has evolved on this world through primitive human understanding of reality. Religion starts out as a worship of nature and gradually evolves into a realization that God is not nature, that nature is a creation of God. Eventually, with the help of revelation, religion evolves into a realization that God is a loving personality who does not demand an eye for an eye, or sacrifices, or punishment, or mindless obedience to His law through rote ceremony and ritual.
In Paper 4 entitled “God’s Relation to the Universe,” there is a section called God and Nature which states,
Nature is a time-space resultant of two cosmic factors: first, the immutability, perfection, and rectitude of Paradise Deity, and second, the experimental plans, executive blunders, insurrectionary errors, incompleteness of development, and imperfection of wisdom of the extra-Paradise creatures, from the highest to the lowest. Nature therefore carries a uniform, unchanging, majestic, and marvelous thread of perfection from the circle of eternity; but in each universe, on each planet, and in each individual life, this nature is modified, qualified, and perchance marred by the acts, the mistakes, and the disloyalties of the creatures of the evolutionary systems and universes; and therefore must nature ever be of a changing mood, whimsical withal, though stable underneath, and varied in accordance with the operating procedures of a local universe. (p. 56:06-57:00)
We environmentalists see the beauty of divine pattern in nature, but we also see its harshness and unpredictability. The earth changes are simply the results of the acts and mistakes of humans and spirit beings who have been out of divine pattern for the last 200,000 years as a result of the Lucifer rebellion. So, in these times of world-wide adjudication we recognize the underlying order of divine pattern in nature, but we also see the chaos of evil manifesting in the natural world as humans continue to act in ways that are ungodly, unlike the ways of the Universal Father.
On page 57 we are informed,
God is not personally present in nature or in any of the forces of nature, for the phenomenon of nature is the superimposition of the imperfections of progressive evolution and, sometimes, the consequences of insurrectionary rebellion, upon the Paradise foundations of God’s universal law. As it appears on such a world as Urantia, nature can never be the adequate expression, the true representation, the faithful portrayal, of an all-wise and infinite God.Nature, on your world, is a qualification of the laws of perfection by the evolutionary plans of the local universe. What a travesty to worship nature because it is in a limited, qualified sense pervaded by God; because it is a phase of the universal and, therefore, divine power! Nature also is a manifestation of the unfinished, the incomplete, the imperfect outworkings of the development, growth, and progress of a universe experiment in cosmic evolution.
The apparent defects of the natural world are not indicative of any such corresponding defects in the character of God. Rather are such observed imperfections merely the inevitable stop-moments in the exhibition of the ever-moving reel of infinity picturization. It is these very defect-interruptions of perfection-continuity which make it possible for the finite mind of material man to catch a fleeting glimpse of divine reality in time and space. The material manifestations of divinity appear defective to the evolutionary mind of man only because mortal man persists in viewing the phenomena of nature through natural eyes, human vision unaided by morontia mota or by revelation, its compensatory substitute on the worlds of time.
Nature is marred, her beautiful face is scarred, her features are seared, by the rebellion, the misconduct, the misthinking of the myriads of creatures who are a part of nature, but who have contributed to her disfigurement in time. No, nature is not God.. Nature is not an object of worship.
God is not personally present in nature, though the beauty of His physical pattern is. In Paper 5 “God’s Relation to the Individual” in a section called The Presence of God, we’re told,
The divine presence cannot, however, be discovered anywhere in nature or even in the lives of God-knowing mortals so fully and so certainly as in your attempted communion with the indwelling Mystery Monitor, the Paradise Thought Adjuster [a fragment of God in each of us]. What a mistake to dream of God far off in the skies when the spirit of the Universal Father lives within your own mind. (ibid., p. 64:06)
Papers 100 through 103 explain what true religion is, and in Paper 101 “The Real Nature of Religion” it is stated,
The contemplation of nature can only reveal a God of nature, a God of motion. Nature exhibits only matter, motion, and animation life. Matter plus energy, and under certain conditions, is manifested in living forms, but while natural life is thus relatively continuous as a phenomenon, it is wholly transient as to individualities. Nature does not afford ground for logical belief in human-personality survival. The religious person who finds God in nature has already and first found this same personal God in his or her own soul. [Emphasis mine.] Faith reveals God in the soul. Revelation, the substitute for morontia insight on an evolutionary world, enables a person to see the same God in nature that faith exhibits in his or her soul. Thus does revelation successfully bridge the gulf between the material and the spiritual, even between the creature and the Creator, between a human being and God. (ibid., p. 1106:09-1107:00)
Further on in that same paper we are told,
Intelligent people know that they are children of nature, a part of the material universe; they likewise discern no survival of individual personality in the motions and tensions of the mathematical level of the energy universe. Nor can persons ever discern spiritual reality through the examination of physical causes and effects. (ibid., p. 1116:02)
Mathematicians and scientists appreciate the order and beauty of a physical pattern that they observe in the dances of the stars in the skies, in the inter-relatedness and harmony in diverse ecosystems on earth, and in the complex particle patterns seen through a microscope. But many do not see intelligence behind that order and out of those who do, many do not acknowledge a personal God, a Universal Father Creator as the source of the beauty. As a result, most mathematicians and scientists are not real environmentalists according to the standards I mentioned previously.Within Divine Administration an environmentalist must first experience God as a personal loving Father and he or she as His child before any long-reaching, wise action in accordance with divine mind and pattern can be taken.
When you experience such a transformation of faith, you are no longer a slavish part of the mathematical cosmos but rather a liberated volitional son or daughter of the Universal Father. No longer is such a liberated son or daughter fighting alone against the inexorable doom of the termination of temporal existence; no longer does he or she combat all nature, with the odds hopelessly against him or her; no longer is he or she staggered by the paralyzing fear that, perchance, he or she has put his or her trust in a hopeless phantasm or pinned his or her faith to a fanciful error….At last all creatures become conscious of the fact that God and all the divine hosts of a well-nigh limitless universe are on their side in the supernal struggle to attain eternity of life and divinity status. Such faith-liberated sons and daughters have certainly enlisted in the struggles of time on the side of the supreme forces and divine personalities of eternity; even the stars in their courses are now doing battle for them; at last they gaze upon the universe from within, from God’s viewpoint, and all is transformed from the uncertainties of material isolation to the sureties of eternal spiritual progression. Even time itself becomes but the shadow of eternity cast by Paradise realities upon the moving panoply of space. (ibid., p. 1117:02-03)
An environmentalist within Divine Administration must see the world and all of life through a spiritized mind, through the eyes of God, understanding His nature, before truly effective action can be taken. We must become cosmic in our world view, thus making it a universe view. How do we discover the nature of God? How do we know how to live within a spiritized mind?In the Paper 2 on the nature of God, we’re told that,
¦The nature of God can best be understood by the revelation of the Father which Michael of Nebadon unfolded in his manifold teachings and in his superb mortal life in the flesh. The divine nature can also be better understood by persons if they regard themselves as children of God and look up to the Paradise Creator as a true spiritual father.The nature of God can be studied in a revelation of supreme ideas, the divine character can be envisaged as a portrayal of supernal ideals, but the most enlightening and spiritually edifying of all revelations of the divine nature is to be found in the comprehension of the religious life of Jesus of Nazareth, both before and after his attainment of full consciousness of divinity. If the incarnated life of Michael [of Nebadon, Jesus] is taken as the background of the revelation of God to people, we may attempt to put in human word symbols certain ideas and ideals concerning the divine nature which may possibly contribute to a further illumination and unification of the human concept of the nature and the character of the personality of the Universal Father. (ibid., p. 33:01-02)
In the fourth part of The URANTIA Book, “The Life and Teachings of Jesus” we see how Jesus as a human being with a human mind that is spiritized and in harmony with the divine mind of the Universe Mother Spirit was a true environmentalist within Divine Administration principles of his day. From childhood on he was a naturalist, studying and appreciating nature. As a child he spent much time alone or with his siblings and friends walking in the hills. In fact when, at the age of fourteen he became the father/elder brother of his home as a result of his father’s death, he took his brothers and sisters for nature strolls every Sunday afternoon. He was a great storyteller and told them stories about nature and animals, and as a young man in his twenties taught his spiritual apprentice, Ganid, a seventeen year-old youth from India, about nature and her various moods. From childhood on, Jesus abhorred the use of animals in religious sacrifice because he realized the incongruity of a loving Universal Father requiring sacrifices in order to be appeased, and he was sickened by the slaughter of innocent animals. In his public ministry, he often used nature in parables to teach higher spiritual truths. He taught his apostles to pray amidst the quiet surrounding of nature and often used the solitude of the hills and shores to teach and preach. He himself spent days, weeks, months, by himself in the wilderness to commune with the Universal Father and reflect upon his life here on Urantia (earth).Never did Jesus go against the natural laws that he had set up as Creator Son of this universe Nebadon. Living as a human being on this world for thirty-six years, no law of nature was modified, abrogated, or even transcended. In any seeming miracle, the only abrogation was of time in association with the celestial personalities who aided. He did not try to conquer nature or deplete it. He tread lightly wherever he walked, and he lived simply, never consuming more than his simple physical needs. His lifestyle should inspire us all to, as Mahatma Gandhi said, “Live simply so that others may simply live.” That brief and yet simple statement reflects a lifestyle of stewardship for all of life, human and non-human. It reflects mindful living, making choices moment-to-moment from our higher minds and hearts as children of the Universal Father, taking personal responsibility for our own decisions and actions. It requires that we are not only scientists and artists but compassionate, caring human beings who are true religionists with a cosmic perspective.
Teaching by Gabriel of Urantia
Tomorrow is the official Earth Day according to the World Peace calendar so we thought we would give a teaching this week on our planet, Urantia (Earth). Actually, what Earth Day promotes should be emphasized every day, so that every day is a celebration and implementation of “Earth Day.” The Universal Father, Mother, and Son are the first family of the earth and of the worlds of time and space, the first environmentalists of the master universe, the first “Green Team,” composed of many colors.
In The URANTIA Book there are six hundred and ninety-nine references to the word “earth.” One is,
The Father rules through his Sons; on down through the universe organization there is an unbroken chain of rulers ending with the Planetary Princes, who direct the destinies of the evolutionary spheres of the Father’s vast domains. It is no mere poetic expression that exclaims: “The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness therof.” “He removes kings and sets up kings.” “The Most Highs rule in the kingdoms of men.” (p. 51:01)
The first thing that comes into my mind when I hear the word “Earth” is family one planetary family. As we read The Cosmic Family volumes and study Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation (CFER), we learn concepts of the cosmic family of the interuniversal realities and intrauniversal realities. Cosmic relationships from universe to universe are interuniversal and cosmic relationships within a universe are intrauniversal, and there are millions of inhabited worlds out there all organized on family structures. The Godfather in God’s higher principles this is a true understanding and His complements rule. [”Complements” in this context mean any personalities in alignment and complementarity within divine administration principles who are part of the hierarchy of executives and administrators of divine government throughout the master universe.] The highest evolved ascending sons and daughters rule planets and serve in other administrative positions and teams. Even angels have positive-negative, male-female teams, and so do other orders of celestial beings throughout time and space. Many are what we mortals would understand to be male-female teams. A team of Father circuits and Mother circuits is much better than just a Father-circuited ruler or a Mother-circuited ruler.
Here in Divine Administration we have a really complementary team. We teach that the first true channels of the light were complemented an ascending son and an ascending daughter who were ascending together as a team. The fallen beings were able to channel through individuals who were not complemented, and that’s a long story but a true teaching that can be found in The Cosmic Family volumes.
What does this all have to do with the earth? A lot, because we walk in harmony with that circuitry of God on this earth. With the destruction of the earth comes the destruction of the family and vice versa. It’s not just the breakdown of the environment that is the problem, it is the breakdown of the brother-/sisterhood of common sense relationships. Even if tomorrow every environmental problem on the planet was solved, every single one, the earth still would self-destruct because of the improper relationships between individuals, groups, and even between governments and the people they are supposed to serve. and so forth.
The URANTIA Book says on page 55,
The Universal Father has not withdrawn from the management of the universes; he is not an inactive Deity. If God should retire as the present upholder of our creation, there would immediately occur a universal collapse. [Which, of course, includes the collapse of every inhabited evolutionary planet.] Except for God, there would be no such thing as reality.
So when you say that you are experiencing true reality and that true reality is void of God, then you’re not experiencing reality at all. It’s a false reality because God and reality are synonymous.When I hear the word “Father,” I also connect with the Eternal Son and Infinite Mother Spirit. I know that the Father is not alone. So when I hear the word Father, Mother is right there too. I don’t disconnect Mother from Father; although I believe that we should speak of God in a Father sense to understand that there is a first and primal source, the circuitry and personality of God the Father. When I hear the word “Gaia,” I don’t think of just Mother Earth; I think of Father Earth as well, and so we have to connect them both together; you can’t just have one without the other.
I’d like to expand upon the yin and yang concept. There is the yin and yang, the Mother and Father circuitry, and then there’s the yong, which is the Son circuitry, which needs to be added to the Buddhist thought yin, yang, and yong which then incorporates the Paradise Trinity. When I respond, usually I respond in the Father circuits. Sometimes, however, we need to respond in the Mother circuits, the seeming opposite but complementary response to the Father circuitry. And then sometimes we need to respond to individuals in the Son circuits. Learning what that is as ascending creatures who walk upon this earth is indeed a lifelong journey, and for starseed a many lifetimes journey. Usually the ability to discern when and how to respond in balance from either the Father-, Mother-, or Son- circuitry doesn’t happen in just one lifetime. It can, but usually it takes many lifetimes ascending on this planet and other planets, including the mansion worlds, to become balanced in that Father/Son/Mother circuitry. No matter what world you are on, when you get the balance, that world experiences a higher reality because mortals have the indwelling fragment of the Universal Father and the Spirit of Truth of the Creator Son and the Holy Spirit of the Universe Mother Spirit available to them. This spirit indwelling is present for mortals in their minds, hearts, and souls on any planet on any world of time and space. Yet few understand this truth of the closeness of God in the affairs of humankind and family life on this planet, and this closeness of God in the workings of mortals is found on many other worlds, more than most of you can even comprehend.
Earth is called Urantia and is one of the millions of inhabited worlds that do exist in the seven hundred local universes within the master universe. Our planet is number 606 of the system of Satania in the constellation of Norlatiadek in the local universe of Nebadon in the superuniverse of Orvonton. Our planet, Urantia, is registered, numbered, and realized as an evolutionary world that has indeed fallen in the Father/Mother circuits. Remember we’re talking about Earth family, Father/Mother.
Leadership in the Family of God
We have many warrior cultures on this planet that have helped to cause the wars, deaths, and suffering of millions of people throughout its history and currently. Often responses that leaders have to one another should definitely be Mother/Mother responses, but because we’re not taught these principles, because true divine administration teachings are not taught on this planet, we have individuals (usually men) sitting in positions of leadership in governments who are really children and should be in kindergarten rather than directors and leaders of governments over millions of people. They should be in the spiritual schools of kindergarten.
Individuals in America and many parts of Western civilization give their loyalty and commitment to policies of Godless corporations and institutions. God, family, and environment actually should exist in the same circle of family thoughts in your mind. God, family, environment they are all one. Think about it. Corporations should exist to serve the family and the environment, not exist to serve themselves. The corporate executive officer should be an executive that is a father figure or a mother figure as the CEO, and I’ve come up with a new definition for CEO (Cautious Environmental Obligation). Within divine administration principles a true CEO would operate upon the foundation of “cautious environmental obligation. That’s what he or she should represent. CEO’s should walk in the reality of all these things that I’ve previously talked about as a servant of humanity, as someone who is to give back to others who they serve, not to make profit for themselves or for just a few executives at the top.
Here’s what The URANTIA Book says about corporate administration on page 162,
The Co-ordinate Ministering Daughters. The universe Mother Spirits, cocreators of the local universes, secure their prepersonal training on the worlds of Havona in close association with the Spirits of the Circuits. In the central universe the Spirit Daughters of the local universes were duly trained in the methods of co-operation with the Sons of Paradise, all the while subject to the will of the Father.
We hear a lot today, even here on this fallen world, about women who don’t get pay equal to men for the jobs that they are doing. Well, that’s true, neither do they get equal respect. When I was in a monastery in Pecos, New Mexico, considering being a priest for a while, this particular monastery bragged about how they gave equal rights to the women there, the nuns and the lay women who resided and worked there. One of the nuns who had been there for quite some time came to me and shared that that wasn’t true, and that I would come to see that, and I did after being there for a while. When I mentioned this privately to the abbot, he got really upset, very upset.Here in this Divine Administration ministry we have eight elders and four of them are ascending daughters. And I often, as a leader, look for counsel from all of those ladies, and in particular, Niánn. If I think my insight is not what it should be, I go to an ascending daughter to look for advice because I don’t hear it all the time in the Father circuitry. I need a Mother response. I need to hear the mother’s perspective on that. Then I can make a higher decision. We all have to learn to do that in balance. In reference to what I just said, if only General Electric, Shell Oil, Exxon and other oil companies and corporations could run their organizations in that manner.
In relation to the earth, William Burrows said “After one look at this planet, any visitor from outer space would say, ˜I want to see the manager’.” The profit motive certainly has mismanaged the earth, and any alien could see that. Walt Whitman, the wonderful United States philosopher and poet, said in regard to the earth, “In this broad earth of ours, amid the measureless grossness and the slag, enclosed and safe within its central heart nestles the seed of mother perfection.” How many corporations and workers who work for corporations and institutions whether banks, title companies, nuclear armament plants, or whatever it might be how many of those workers have the concepts in their minds every day like we do here in Divine Administration: justice, equality, cooperative thinking, ecology, community, common planetary surplus (a Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation term)? Common planetary surplus corporations, organizations, and even governments usually don’t think of that.
The Need for Divine Administration and Ecological Balance
Now I don’t have to tell you that most of “the system” stinks. I think most of you have experienced the stinkyness. I’d like to tell you specifically again to remind you just how it stinks in certain areas and what needs to be changed. It’s not going to be changed by thinking about it or just talking about it. Many Harvard graduates, Yale graduates, and graduates of many other colleges in the United States do not truly understand the concept “ecology.” They got it from a book or took a course in ecology, but that doesn’t mean anything unless you live it and practice it. It doesn’t mean anything unless you have it from an experiential understanding. A very, very small percentage of Americans live an ecological lifestyle. Just the opposite, they live in mass consumerism and materialism. Chief Seattle said, “This we know. The earth does not belong to man, but man belongs to the earth. This we all know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family.” There’s that family concept with the earth. “All things are connected. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life. He is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.” I try to live my life that way consciously. How is this going to affect others, what I do, how I act, what I think, what I say, how I spend, whatever. How is this going to affect my brothers and sisters? And when you have that in mind, if you keep that in mind, it may change what you buy, what you do, where you go, whatever. It really does.
Corporate executives through negative media, try to destroy intentional communities and eco-villages because those people in those intentional communities are not wasteful consumers. The whole capitalistic system is set up so that you are to consume unconsciously, to make more and more money so that you can buy, buy. So, individuals who form ecological communities and spend less money are considered enemies to corporations. Americans need to get that. We are not isolated individual families. We are families connected very closely to each other. We have to get back to the neighborhood concept of life. Here in America today, neighbors don’t even know each other. They could live right next to each other and never talk to each other. That has to change. It’s not going to be easy, particularly in the wealthy segments of society where there are two people living in a house that could be a home for sixteen people. From a cosmic perspective, that is just absolutely insane. That’s not earth-conscious thinking. It’s not earth-conscious building. Contractors need to have higher consciousness. They need to be confronted in the Father circuits. You will all have an opportunity to confront somebody in the near future. I beg you to confront. That’s the only way that change is going to come about. “Oh, but I’ll make this person mad at me.” So what! So what. It’s better to make that person mad at you and God proud of you. That’s how you should think. You do the right thing for the right reason and make God proud of you. If they are doing something for the wrong reason, confront them. That’s the only way the world is going to change, and they are going to change.
Many communities that started out with good intentions had to break up because local city and county government’s codes came against those alternative plans which are trying to form environmentally-friendly spaces and lifestyles that don’t consume as much. Farming has been taken over by corporate interests. The small farmer has become a forgotten American reality. Remember we’re talking about the earth. I think it’s neat to be able to drive around America and see small farms. You don’t see that so much anymore, because it’s all been taken over by corporate entities. Their concern is producing as much as they can produce and making as much money as they can make. Their concern is not in the quality of the food and the organic farming or livestock but in basically putting many chemicals into the chickens and cows so that they can produce more chickens and cows. And we eat them. I mean, we don’t here in this community, but others eat them. We try not to. We try to be as common sense eaters as possible, but often we are at the mercy of the supermarkets. If our livestock runs out, thank God we have goat milk. After you drink a little bit of goat milk you ask yourself, “Why did I ever drink that cow milk?” But everybody doesn’t have goat milk to drink and I understand. But at least you should write letters to whomever and say, “Get these darn chemicals out of my milk!” Raise animals organic. You can do it. Just say “No, I won’t buy it anymore. I’m not going to buy anymore milk.” If inorganic dairies get a few hundred thousand letters, who knows, they might stop injecting the cows with chemicals. But until you speak up, nothing is going to change, nothing. Until you become a pro-active person, nothing is going to change. Tell your friends. When you have your conversations around your family parties and get-togethers, make this a topic of conversation.
The indigenous peoples of the planet struggle for survival more and more every day because the oil companies, cattle ranchers, and other industries are taking their land from them. It’s happening all over the world. To name just a few specifically, the Mayan in Mexico and the Ogoni peoples of Nigeria. This list is actually endless. It goes on and on in every continent. And Americans, they like to just turn the other way thinking “Oh that’s not happening here in America. It’s happening to those poor Ogoni people, you know, or down there in Mexico. It doesn’t really concern me.” You better believe it concerns you. It definitely does. Write letters to your congressmen, to your senators. Tell these oil companies that you’re not going to buy any more gas and oil. I know you’re going to have to buy some. We’re stuck. But say you’re going to walk or car pool. I know you can’t always do it. You have to have the car once in a while to get from place to place but just let them know you’re mad for what they are doing to the earth and to the poor indigenous peoples of the earth. They are taking their land away, taking their life away, their cultural lifestyles away so that you can drive from one place to another in your gas-guzzling automobile. All of us are responsible in some way. So we need to fight back in whatever way we can to voice ourselves for change.
Become A Pro-active Change Agent for the Common Good of All
I, Gabriel of Urantia, call for a worldwide leap of faith by leaving those jobs that support the greedy, fallen system that only serve a few families of the rich in control at the top. Why do you have to work two jobs and your husband or wife has to work two jobs as well? Do you think this is normal? Do you think that God has created you in your destiny so that you need to work two or three jobs to support your family and children? That’s not how it should be. The only way it’s going to change is if you become a change agent. Quit the job that is not beneficial for the world; don’t support that harmful aspect of the system. “Well, how am I going to work; what am I going to do?” Trust God to lead and guide you to the next place of your career or job. Trust God, and God will lead you to work that is meaningful and beneficial for the earth and for other people. Oh, you might say that you are too old for such a change. You are never too old. We have a person here from Germany and she is ninety-three. She came from Germany to join Divine Administration when she was a young eighty-seven. You’re never too old to get it right.
Don’t just pray for the earth. Don’t just go to the Earth Prayer days and pray. That’s not going to change anything. God hears you and God is trying to say, “OK, here’s the answer, now you have to do something.” How many people don’t hear that part of it? Do something, don’t just pray. Be willing to change your life to help change the world. Trust in God to lead you to the job or career that serves not only your family but the whole family of the earth. That’s why Divine Administration was founded by Celestial Overcontrol because we think planetary. We have Planetary Family Services, Planetary Family Exchange. We think planetary, Global Change Music. I think planetary, but I don’t just think about something. I don’t just write a song. I don’t just think planetary, I act, and every motive of my heart is for my child. “My child is your child and your child is mine,” regardless of where you live. That’s the thinking and action that’s going to change this world.
And so I encourage you all to join the Spiritualutionâ„¢ started by Divine Administration. We are here in Sedona, Arizona to take not just your hand, but to take your heart and walk that way with you. Thank you very much.
