  1. What Is the Basic Truth That the UB Papers Reveal to the World?
  2. Is the Teaching Mission Expanding in Countries Other than the Us?

Prayer: Jerry: Dearest Father in Heaven, we bow before you this evening to give thanks for your love and inspiration in our lives and for helping us to better know and understand you. We thank you for the association we have with one another and the opportunity we have to serve each other and learn from each other. We pray that you will continue to guide and direct us in the things that we say and do so that we can be of greater service to the greater number and that you will open our eyes and our hearts to the opportunities that present themselves everyday. We ask you to be with us now as we lend our hearts, minds and souls to the messages that are available to us through your Teachers and through the services of our dedicated brothers and sisters who receive and convey the information to us. These things we say and pray for in the name of Jesus Christ.

JarEl: TR, George: Good evening. It is I, your Teacher JarEl. It is good to be back again and see all of you once again. It is a privilege that I have to be able to convey my messages of love and understanding, of patience and insight. There is much knowledge for you to obtain throughout the universe. There is so much more that awaits you beyond the veil of death. Most of you have this understanding and are waiting for that moment, not being too impatient, but gathering knowledge of things unknown to you.

There is a time and place for everything and there is a moment when things will be revealed to you. The one thing that we ask of you is that you trust, as we trust in you. We believe in all of you as ambassadors. We never feel that we are wasting our time. In you we have invested much of our energy so that the world may prosper, so that the world may one day come closer to the age of Light and Life. Every single one of you is a seed that one day will bloom to full light. When you do begin to shine and grow, others will notice and will begin to ask questions themselves.

Many of you have gathered knowledge that is unknown to the rest of this world. But this knowledge is not meant to be hidden or sheltered. It is knowledge that has been freely given to you and, therefore, you must freely give it away. I understand that many of you find this difficult to do for there are many in this world who are close-minded and stubborn. But that, my friends, is no major obstacle to overcome. That is the least of your worries. Just as easily as a person can be close-minded, easily they can be open minded as well. This is a matter of opening and closing the door and when spoken to in the correct manner, that door will most agreeably open to you. You must learn to use tact and a precise manner of speaking in order to convey this message of truth that you hold within your person.

The responsibility that all of you carry is great for this knowledge shall bring peace to this world. This knowledge shall unite nations and people. The knowledge that you carry is of utmost importance and it must not be casually thrown aside like just another interesting book. You must let people know how important this book is. You must allow them to see the significance of this book, not only in your life but in theirs as well. Notice how I never have you make anyone do anything. You simply present it to them and let them make their own decisions; for you can never force anyone into believing what you believe. Neither must you coerce someone into believing what you believe, nor must you put fear into them. Always present the truth for what it is and let them make up their own mind.

Imagine yourselves as farmers who are planting seeds as they walk by. Each seed must be pure and whole; it must contain the truth of life. The moment you alter that seed, the moment you bring to it your own version of what the truth is, that seed will not produce good fruit. But if you plant each seed unaltered, pure and good, into good soil, that seed will one day bear fruit and the fruit that it brings will be just as pure as the seed you planted. In the same way you must plant the seeds in people's hearts.

Give them the truth, let them make up their own mind. Do not try to skew or compromise your ideas in order that they may more acceptably receive them. This has been done in the past and you have seen the consequences of compromises. In this day and age we feel that men and women are ready to receive the truth for what it is for in the Urantia Book we plainly state how things are and how the universe is and how you came to be. Many of you who study this book have plainly in your mind decided that what you have read is true. If there ever was any question in your heart, you have settled that question. So as we give you the truth, so you must also give the truth to others and allow others to make up their mind.

Every one of you here lives in an age of importance. You are going through a phase in this world in which everything matters. Precisely at this moment there are great decisions that are being made in this world, great discoveries and great consequences. Your world is rapidly changing and growing and expanding and at the same time your world is connecting and getting smaller and more intimate. It is an exciting time for all of you for the world has never been like this before. Never has there been greater opportunity for you to communicate with so many people all at once. And now that this communication is open, it greatly matters what you say and how you think. It greatly matters how you perceive others and how you treat others. It greatly matters for you to set an example for your neighbors who are so adamant to see the rest of the world with skewed eyes. You are all here to be the soldiers of this world; to show others the love of humanity and the brotherhood of mankind.

Are there any questions here tonight?

Jerry: JarEl, I would appreciate it if you would share with us how you would summarize in a short statement or a short phrase what the basic truth is that is conveyed in the Urantia Book papers. We know that the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man is a central theme, but if someone were to ask us, "What is the basic truth that these papers reveal to the world?" How would you answer that question?

JarEl: TR, George: I would answer it in this way:

There is never anything basic about a truth. A truth is more than anything you have come across, anything you have imagined or anything you have perceived. There is more to this world and the next than you can ever imagine. This book contains many truths, much wisdom. Aside from the central theme of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man there are many more ideals that you can derive from the book.

There are many guides for living a perfect life and there is much information that will not only better your life, but those that you love and your friends and strangers that you pass on the street.

This book also gives you insight to future teachings that you might receive, such as Morontia mota and the future progress of your life in eternity. So not only is it a guide book for good living, it is also a revelation for your future throughout eternity.

It is a book that reveals much more than what it says and, overall, this book allows you to find your place in this universe. This book grounds you into the realities of God. It anchors you in the existence of the universe. It brings identity to an otherwise chaotic universe.

So to answer your question, Jerry, putting aside the central theme of this book, the Urantia Book tells you who you are, which is, perhaps, one of the most important things that you can come across.

Are there any more questions?

Jerry: I would just like to thank you for that. I am glad we can have your comments recorded because the transcript of that statement you made of the many truths that are addressed in the papers contains some wonderful thoughts and ideas to convey to people who ask us "What is the truth and what are the truths that are revealed in these papers?" You have really given us a lot of food for thought as well as information and suggestions as to what we can share with others. Thank you.

Jerry: This is a point of information question mostly. Is the Teaching Mission continuing to spread in other parts of the world, beyond the United States? Are there Teacher contacts and individuals being identified who are able to convey what the Teachers have to say in other languages and in other countries?

JarEl: TR, George: Without revealing any specifics Jerry, I can assure you that the Teaching Mission is expanding beyond the borders of this country. There are more people in this world who are open-minded, who are open to receiving messages. There are more people who are preparing themselves and readying themselves as citizens of the universe. There is a wider consensus of knowledge that incorporates the brotherhood of man and the Fatherhood of God. This general acceptance of this knowledge enables humanity to connect, not only with each other, but with those who bring them revelation through spiritual contact.

We see this as a great sign of the world changing. The world is changing and the world is connecting more and there are different points of light throughout your world. These lights are growing, at first slow, but as they continue to shine they eventually grow more rapidly and in more places as well.

Not everyone in the world believes that we are separate. Not everyone believes that there is only their country and that's it. People are beginning to see beyond their borders. They are beginning to see the whole world as one. As your climate changes, you are beginning to see the effects of what humanity has done and how that can affect the entire world as well. So the world is becoming as one. But you yet have a long ways to go for that oneness to be complete. The more you connect with others my friends, the more you help this world heal itself from its loneliness and isolation.

That is all for tonight, goodnight.
