Outside Asleep...Inside Awake 2

 

(1585.5) 140:10.7 After Jesus and Matthew had finished talking, Simon Zelotes asked, “But, Master, are all men the sons of God?” And Jesus answered: “Yes, Simon, all men are the sons of God, and that is the good news you are going to proclaim.” But the apostles could not grasp such a doctrine; it was a new, strange, and startling announcement. And it was because of his desire to impress this truth upon them that Jesus taught his followers to treat all men as their brothers.

Are you merely a believer—an adherent to someone else’s belief system?

Outside Asleep... Inside Awake...Are you an original…or a copy? Are you the original and unique personality…or the clone? Are you looking outside…asleep…or inside…awake? And is there a possible advanced state, in which you are looking inside and outside, simultaneously…awake…?

When the apostles joined Jesus, they did not view anyone outside of the Jewish nation, as their brothers…only fellow Jews…
Looking Outside...Asleep... Looking Inside...Awake...
The whole of the human race, then, as now, viewed each other with great suspicion, warring against each other, one tribe, state or nation conquering as many other tribes, states and nations as their military might would, could and did accomplish, however temporary the hold on power over and enslavement of small and vast numbers of other human beings…the outsiders…the enemy…the less than human…

 

(2087.1) 196:0.1 JESUS enjoyed a sublime and wholehearted faith in God. He experienced the ordinary ups and downs of mortal existence, but he never religiously doubted the certainty of God’s watchcare and guidance. His faith was the outgrowth of the insight born of the activity of the divine presence, his indwelling Adjuster. His faith was neither traditional nor merely intellectual; it was wholly personal and purely spiritual.

(2087.2) 196:0.2 The human Jesus saw God as being holy, just, and great, as well as being true, beautiful, and good. All these attributes of divinity he focused in his mind as the “will of the Father in heaven.” Jesus’ God was at one and the same time “The Holy One of Israel” and “The living and loving Father in heaven.” The concept of God as a Father was not original with Jesus, but he exalted and elevated the idea into a sublime experience by achieving a new revelation of God and by proclaiming that every mortal creature is a child of this Father of love, a son of God.

–The Urantia Book – Paper 196 – The Faith of Jesus


After approximately 2,000 years since Jesus made this pronouncement, the whole of the human race is still struggling with his pronouncement that “all men are brothers…

Humanity is currently facing the greatest crisis of it approximate one million year history…

If you are looking out into the world…but do not believe that all men and women are our brothers and sisters…you are asleep…

When you are looking inside of yourself and acknowledge the universal truth that ALL men and women are the children of the Universe Father on all inhabited worlds…you are…halfway there to the awakened state…

It is only when you, by going within, acknowledge…

 

We are all, except those of subnormal mind, uniformly indwelt by Paradise spirits of premind and prewill. The same is true that all normal minds have equal access to the Spirit of Truth. And we all, thus, have equal assistance from the 7 adjutant mind spirits of the Local Universe Mother spirit…

 

Outside Asleep...Inside Awake 3you may open your eyes…and become awakened to this reality…in real time…begin to live up to the great challenge of viewing, treating and loving all men and women as your spiritual brothers and sisters…
This is the truth that transcends all religious belief systems…

 

God is the Father of all beings, spiritual, angelic and mortal, making us therefore all brothers and sisters within the universe family of God… The Fatherhood of God…and the brotherhood of all living beings…

 

However uniquely this great truth is expressed…through the human filters of religious belief, culture and tradition…this is the vibratory root within all religious and spiritual belief systems.
Outside Asleep...Inside Awake 5
How, therefore, can you say…this is my religion…this is my God…or my primordial Source…or denigrate this great truth to even the lowest levels of…this is my book of absolute truth…my favored relationship to God…my exclusive salvation…my exclusive revelation with God…?

The present crisis humanity faces is not a social, political or economic crisis… The true crisis humanity faces…is a crisis of consciousness…the unwillingness to let of the scaffolding…the belief systems that box…that veritable prison for the mind…that forms the invisible barrier between the mind and the freedom to experience its true nature…

Subsequently, it is our scaffolding of belief systems, which also prevents our recognizing this true nature within our fellow human beings…

But How Do You Expand Beyond Your Own Self-limiting Belief System?

(556.5) 48:7.5 3. Inherent capacities cannot be exceeded; a pint can never hold a quart. The spirit concept cannot be mechanically forced into the material memory mold. 

–The Urantia Book – Paper 48 – The Morontia Life 

(381.5) 34:6.11 The Spirit never drives, only leads. If you are a willing learner, if you want to attain spirit levels and reach divine heights, if you sincerely desire to reach the eternal goal, then the divine Spirit will gently and lovingly lead you along the pathway of sonship and spiritual progress. Every step you take must be one of willingness, intelligent and cheerful co-operation. The domination of the Spirit is never tainted with coercion nor compromised by compulsion. 

(381.6) 34:6.12 And when such a life of spirit guidance is freely and intelligently accepted, there gradually develops within the human mind a positive consciousness of divine contact and assurance of spirit communion; sooner or later “the Spirit bears witness with your spirit (the Adjuster) that you are a child of God.” Already has your own Thought Adjuster told you of your kinship to God so that the record testifies that the Spirit bears witness “with your spirit,” not to your spirit.

(1098.1) 100:4.4 In physical life the senses tell of the existence of things; mind discovers the reality of meanings; but the spiritual experience reveals to the individual the true values of life. These high levels of human living are attained in the supreme love of God and in the unselfish love of man. If you love your fellow men, you must have discovered their values. Jesus loved men so much because he placed such a high value upon them. You can best discover values in your associates by discovering their motivation. If someone irritates you, causes feelings of resentment, you should sympathetically seek to discern his viewpoint, his reasons for such objectionable conduct. If once you understand your neighbor, you will become tolerant, and this tolerance will grow into friendship and ripen into love.

(1098.2) 100:4.5 In the mind’s eye conjure up a picture of one of your primitive ancestors of cave-dwelling times — a short, misshapen, filthy, snarling hulk of a man standing, legs spread, club upraised, breathing hate and animosity as he looks fiercely just ahead. Such a picture hardly depicts the divine dignity of man. But allow us to enlarge the picture. In front of this animated human crouches a saber-toothed tiger. Behind him, a woman and two children. Immediately you recognize that such a picture stands for the beginnings of much that is fine and noble in the human race, but the man is the same in both pictures. Only, in the second sketch you are favored with a widened horizon. You therein discern the motivation of this evolving mortal. His attitude becomes praiseworthy because you understand him. If you could only fathom the motives of your associates, how much better you would understand them. If you could only know your fellows, you would eventually fall in love with them.

The truly awakened individual sons and daughters of our Paradise Father transcend all belief systems…

 

(1114.6) 101:8.2 Belief is always limiting and binding; faith is expanding and releasing. Belief fixates, faith liberates. 

–The Urantia Book – Paper 101 – The Real Nature of Religion

 

Outside Asleep...Inside Awake 9And these awakened sons and daughters all have but one great goal…and that is to sow the seeds of spiritual awakening everywhere they may chance to pass by…throughout the world…

Within their own awakening and in the awakening of each and every other precious brother and sister, each and every child of our Universe Father…the Universe itself…awakens…

There is only one consciousness in the Universe of universes… Therefore when you awaken yourself…you are awakening all beings…

The Urantia Book reveals that there are almost innumerable orders of mortals, angels and spiritual beings, super sentient and super intelligent beings, scattered throughout the vast stretches of the Universe of universes….

We may choose to become passionate about living the truth of the divine revelation within us, become the “living truth of revelation,” in each of our individual lives. In this way do we become the “living embodiment” of the truth-seeker and the God-seeking “sowers of the seeds of life and light,” to which our brothers and sisters, in all walks of life are drawn to us and may naturally inquire of the source of the light and life within us that is lighting all, who come into the room with us…

  • Have you taken the vow to become the living embodiment of the truth you are seeking within your search to know our Father-God and become increasingly more perfect…like Him…?
  • Have you taken the vow to effect greater and greater self-control and self-mastery over your myriad human imperfections?
  • Have you taken the vow to “know the unknowable…?”
  • Have you taken the vow to attain the awakening to unselfishly serving, each and every brother and sister, within the whole of humanity…?
  • Have you taken the vow to become wholly identified with the absolute and perfect fragment of our Universe Father’s divine spirit, which indwells your mind?
  • Have you taken the vow to become the living embodiment of truth, beauty and goodness–peace, light and life—the Love you desire to see transform the whole of human civilization…the whole of the sons and daughters of our Paradise Father on Earth…?

(1098.3) 100:4.6 You cannot truly love your fellows by a mere act of the will. Love is only born of thoroughgoing understanding of your neighbor’s motives and sentiments. It is not so important to love all men today as it is that each day you learn to love one more human being. If each day or each week you achieve an understanding of one more of your fellows, and if this is the limit of your ability, then you are certainly socializing and truly spiritualizing your personality. Love is infectious, and when human devotion is intelligent and wise, love is more catching than hate. But only genuine and unselfish love is truly contagious. If each mortal could only become a focus of dynamic affection, this benign virus of love would soon pervade the sentimental emotion-stream of humanity to such an extent that all civilization would be encompassed by love, and that would be the realization of the brotherhood of man. 

–The Urantia Book – Paper 100 – Religion in Human Experience

…all civilization would be encompassed by love, and that would be the realization of the brotherhood of man.
