Last week we began a study of Paper 100, Religion in Human Experience. We covered Religious Growth and Spiritual Growth. Yes, there is a difference.
In a word, this paper is SUBLIME! Every person who has ever struggled to do the right thing for the right reasons should read Urantia Paper 100, Religion in Human Experience. It is a masterpiece of religious philosophy, but then, one could expect no less from a Melchizedek.
This week we'll continue to unpack this splendid and insightful paper to uncover Supreme Values and Problems of Growth, and perhaps more.
Consider the following tantalizing tidbits:
"Values are not conceptual illusions; they are real, but always they depend on the fact of relationships. Values are always both actual and potential—not what was, but what is and is to be."
"Religious living is devoted living, and devoted living is creative living, original and spontaneous. New religious insights arise out of conflicts which initiate the choosing of new and better reaction habits in the place of older and inferior reaction patterns. New meanings only emerge amid conflict; and conflict persists only in the face of refusal to espouse the higher values connoted in superior meanings."
"Man cannot cause growth, but he can supply favorable conditions. Growth is always unconscious, be it physical, intellectual, or spiritual. Love thus grows; it cannot be created, manufactured, or purchased; it must grow. "
Come and romance the universe with us! This week's study contains everyone's favorite, the Cavema paradigm, you can see a great video of it here: THE CAVEMAN
