11. What makes the Urantia Book
different from other revelations of truth?
are several sections that could be considered unique, either
as entirely new concepts or as innovative approaches to
existing knowledge. Probably the most unique or new concept
is on an aspect of deity called “God the Supreme”.
This is an
aspect of God which is actually evolving as all experiential beings,
such as ourselves, are evolving towards perfection. Every action,
thought, and decision which has spiritual value actually contribute
to the evolving of God the Supreme. What’s significant about this is
that it will take the entire family of all humankind, on this world
and others, to bring the full completion of God the Supreme to
fruition. With this realization we can find great meaning in our
actions in this life and we are compelled to do our part in serving
others and empowering them spiritually.
There are a
few other areas worth mentioning. Although most religions speak of
the inner presence of God, the Urantia book goes into great detail
with a wealth of specific information on this actual fragment of
deity which it terms the Thought Adjuster. Having this knowledge
helps us to understand how special we really are, and our Thought
Adjuster’s role in our life. The book explains about the development
of a higher ability to perceive spirit and truth reality which it
calles mota. This ability provides a depth of perception similar to
having two eyes versus just one. Related to mota is an area of
reality which bridges the physical and spiritual realities which is
referred to as morontia. Also, there are advanced teachings on the
nature of deity, the Trinity, and the physical structure of the
universe we live in which could be considered unique in their
Book talks about reality on the cosmic level of progression.
There are concepts and historical facts that have never been
revealed before anywhere. Throughout history people have
speculated about God, but the Urantia Book has presented to
us God’s personality and attributes as well as his ascension
plan for our eternal future in detail. It details the
purpose of our existence and why we are so limited in our
understanding, which contributes to viewing life as unfair.
It frees up your thinking and elevates you to a
superconscious level where you begin to recognize the light
of truth, beauty and goodness. It is a most challenging yet
rewarding reading experience, especially for those
adventurous people who are seeking to discover an enlarged
way of living and loving.
