Many students of The Urantia Book start off quite impressed by its fabulous, “sci-fi” cosmology. But as naïve assumptions and misunderstandings about science get undermined, their interest in this “scientific content” can cool off. One student, who’d championed “Urantia Book science” for 20 years, recently hit this credibility wall. In a Urantia Book discussion forum, he asked (what he thought was) a rhetorical question:
“So, can YOU think of a novel scientific proposal of The Urantia Book that does not have a human origin? Can you think of something, anything, unique to the book that we might await science to discover independently?”
I could think of a few, but as a student of astrophysics, I’d become intrigued by one in particular. So I replied: “Here’s one: that black holes can explode.”

What is it that makes something feel true? In our “mind arena of choice”, when we choose to believe that something is true, what’s really going on?
Let’s discount the gullible (who fall for whatever they’re told) and think instead about the best of our scientists and philosophers, the most inspiring of our poets and religionists. In their private inner world, where they can safely admit that their perception of reality is limited and subjective, what makes it possible for them to commit to a conclusion that something is “real”? And the other side of that coin: how is it possible for equally sincere and sophisticated souls to reach such distinctly different conclusions about what the real thing is?

Urantia is now quivering on the very brink of one of its most amazing and enthralling epochs of social readjustment, moral quickening, and spiritual enlightenment.
[Paper 195:9.2, page 2082.7]
According to The Urantia Book, the cultural epochs of our world have been sponsored and fostered in all sorts of ways. That none of these epochs have unfolded as planned just confirms that free will and human choice have been given free rein in this backward corner of creation. And now we find ourselves quivering on the brink of one of our world’s “most amazing and enthralling epochs”. Given the geopolitical landscape, the rise and self-assertion of so many self-interested factions, and the imposition of disruptive technologies, it’s safe to say many familiar systems and assumptions will soon be forced to evolve. Which makes one wonder: is it possible for humans to steer such evolution? Can wise leadership help humanity navigate the upcoming “interesting times”? Can sincerity and good intentions help civilization to advance?

First there was the thought, the Universal Father. Then the word, the Eternal Son. And then the act, the Infinite Spirit. And they function as one mighty author, creator and sustainer of reality; the Paradise Trinity. From these circles of the oneness of infinity and eternity, on out to the finite edges of the evolving universes of time and space all true “values”, “meanings” and “things” can be traced back to the great and mighty unified creative God of all creation.

The Urantia Book reveals a spiritual concept of personality which is new to mankind.
We are aware of personality, but man has never conceived of personality as a reality in and of itself. We see the differences between form, substance, and essence, but man has failed to recognize the independent reality of personal presence.
Our idea of personality is but a candle in the night; some truth maybe discovered by the light of a candle, but the sun reveals a whole world of truth in the awakening of a new day.

This is a work of over 17 individual papers dealing with revealed cosmology as in The Urantia Book.
Revelation affords a common meeting ground for the discoveries of both science and religion and makes possible the human attempt logically to correlate these separate but interdependent domains of thought into a well-balanced philosophy of scientific stability and religious certainty. [Paper 103:7.9, page 1139:1]
With the guidance given by the celestial teachers who authored The Urantia Book,
…it is just as possible to find the personal presence of God at the center of all things as to find distant cities on your own planet. [Paper 11:1.3, page 118:5]
We no longer need be disoriented in the vastness of space. We can find the home of the Universal Father on the Eternal Isle of Paradise.

This is a work based on the Urantia Papers that explores meditation in its ultimate form: SuperMeditation. It is based on the highest revelatory truths of the modern age.
SuperMeditation links our day-to-day life with spirit influences. It is not a quick and easy method. It works in a natural way over time and seeks to balance all attributes, powers and components of our being. There is no set method or sequence for the study of these modules. They need to be studied and applied in practical life circumstances.
SuperMeditation is the connection of material reality and our spiritual nature through the thinking mechanism we call mind. By attempting this liaison we develop our ability to face the demands of living more effectively.
We can also come to know the realm of our superconsciousness where we engage in profound thinking and personal communion with our Creator. The result is the development of our spiritual awareness, capacity, and receptivity.
It is multifaceted: thoughtful problem solving, making contact with our indwelling spirit, engaging in worship, becoming service orientated; all separate yearnings and yet they all interrelate. So much for the old style of passively doing nothing but chanting a mantra, focusing on an object, or futilely trying to empty the mind.
The supreme desire for truth, coupled with the highest values, ensures this practice of searching for God within us is the most natural, safest, and worthwhile endeavor.
Is it effective? Does it work? Is it the way to a better life? Discover for yourself. Live it. It is an exciting adventure that lasts a lifetime. It is your unique and personal journey.
