About

Dedication: This site is dedicated to Minnie Lee Arthur-Walls, 1887-1963, she who was grandmother, mother, friend and the greatest of all influences on my life–she who, without knowing, caused me to question, expend and expand myself in uncommon thinking–above and beyond the surface of what is accepted as “the norm” in tradition…a trait which has and will characterize the whole of my material existence… I loved you, then, grandmother; I love you,now…and forever more…

In my mind it is not about “me.” This is why I could never become a well-known actor or musician. For the dancing monkey, it is all-about-me.

For this original…the message is all-important. The messenger is not

What is important to know about me?

…My principles and values by which I ever strive to live my life…

Here are the principles by which I choose to live my life:

(556.3) 48:7.3 1. A display of specialized skill does not signify possession of spiritual capacity. Cleverness is not a substitute for true character.

(556.4) 48:7.4 2. Few persons live up to the faith which they really have. Unreasoned fear is a master intellectual fraud practiced upon the evolving mortal soul.

(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.

(556.6) 48:7.6 4. Few mortals ever dare to draw anything like the sum of personality credits established by the combined ministries of nature and grace. The majority of impoverished souls are truly rich, but they refuse to believe it.

(556.7) 48:7.7 5. Difficulties may challenge mediocrity and defeat the fearful, but they only stimulate the true children of the Most Highs.

(556.8) 48:7.8 6. To enjoy privilege without abuse, to have liberty without license, to possess power and steadfastly refuse to use it for self-aggrandizement — these are the marks of high civilization.

(556.9) 48:7.9 7. Blind and unforeseen accidents do not occur in the cosmos. Neither do the celestial beings assist the lower being who refuses to act upon his light of truth.

(556.10) 48:7.10 8. Effort does not always produce joy, but there is no happiness without intelligent effort.

(556.11) 48:7.11 9. Action achieves strength; moderation eventuates in charm.

(556.12) 48:7.12 10. Righteousness strikes the harmony chords of truth, and the melody vibrates throughout the cosmos, even to the recognition of the Infinite.

(556.13) 48:7.13 11. The weak indulge in resolutions, but the strong act. Life is but a day’s work — do it well. The act is ours; the consequences God’s.

(556.14) 48:7.14 12. The greatest affliction of the cosmos is never to have been afflicted. Mortals only learn wisdom by experiencing tribulation.

(556.15) 48:7.15 13. Stars are best discerned from the lonely isolation of experiential depths, not from the illuminated and ecstatic mountain tops.

(556.16) 48:7.16 14. Whet the appetites of your associates for truth; give advice only when it is asked for.

(557.1) 48:7.17 15. Affectation is the ridiculous effort of the ignorant to appear wise, the attempt of the barren soul to appear rich.

(557.2) 48:7.18 16. You cannot perceive spiritual truth until you feelingly experience it, and many truths are not really felt except in adversity.

(557.3) 48:7.19 17. Ambition is dangerous until it is fully socialized. You have not truly acquired any virtue until your acts make you worthy of it.

(557.4) 48:7.20 18. Impatience is a spirit poison; anger is like a stone hurled into a hornet’s nest.

(557.5) 48:7.21 19. Anxiety must be abandoned. The disappointments hardest to bear are those which never come.

(557.6) 48:7.22 20. Only a poet can discern poetry in the commonplace prose of routine existence.

(557.7) 48:7.23 21. The high mission of any art is, by its illusions, to foreshadow a higher universe reality, to crystallize the emotions of time into the thought of eternity.

(557.8) 48:7.24 22. The evolving soul is not made divine by what it does, but by what it strives to do.

(557.9) 48:7.25 23. Death added nothing to the intellectual possession or to the spiritual endowment, but it did add to the experiential status the consciousness of survival.

(557.10) 48:7.26 24. The destiny of eternity is determined moment by moment by the achievements of the day by day living. The acts of today are the destiny of tomorrow.

(557.11) 48:7.27 25. Greatness lies not so much in possessing strength as in making a wise and divine use of such strength.

(557.12) 48:7.28 26. Knowledge is possessed only by sharing; it is safeguarded by wisdom and socialized by love.

(557.13) 48:7.29 27. Progress demands development of individuality; mediocrity seeks perpetuation in standardization.

(557.14) 48:7.30 28. The argumentative defense of any proposition is inversely proportional to the truth contained.

The Urantia Book, Paper 48  The Morontia Life

Do I always and perfectly live up to these principles and values? No.

My life is full of failures and mistakes in the eyes of others.

In my view, it has always been a growing and changing, chameleon-like life of increasing experience, deepening understanding and wisdom, self-awareness, soul-consciousness and the slow-but-sure perfecting of a spiritual experience-spiritual existence…

Along this path less traveled…I never expected to be “understood.” I hoped I would be understood by those closest to me. 

Everything in my experience seems to point at teaching me a very profound set of principles…the primary of which are:

  • Expect less, if not nothing from others… Try to fully appreciate what another is willing to give without there being any expectation attached to it…beforehand and in the future…
  • Happiness never comes from an external source (another person or thing.) Happiness must spring up from deep inside you from the Source Eternal. That is the only happiness which brings lasting peace.

 

That’s enough, for now… I may add to this as time passes…

Suffice it to say… Every poem, article and music speaks volumes about who I have been, who I am and who I am becoming…if you are really listening…

    Religion is nothing more of less, but exactly the self-conscious personality discovering the Divine Source within…and following the leading of the whispers of the indwelling spirit to soul consciousness, during the brief course of the human experience…  –Tim R Walls
