This week we're back to study Section 5 of Urantia Paper 112, SURVIVAL OF THE HUMAN SELF.
In our previous studies, we discovered that after physical death, two nonmaterial pieces of a surviving personality persist: memory transcripts and the immortal soul. The indwelling presence of God, the Thought Adjuster, carries the mortal's memory transcripts to Divinington, while the soul is remanded to the care of the seraphim. Temporarily after death, the Thought Adjuster loses personality and the mortal loses identity until they can be reunited in a new manifestation on the mansion worlds. A mortal is repersonalized on the mansion worlds either at the end of a dispensation or within three "periods." Reassembly of the parts of a onetime material being involves the fabrication of a suitable form, the return of the Adjuster, and the bestowal of the soul into the awaiting morontia form by the seraphic custodian.
This week we look at how the self persists in spite of a continuous change in all of the factors of self. Human life is endless change unified by the stability of the unchanging personality.
The universe always manifests patience, tolerance, and mercy. If there is ever any doubt as to the advisability of allowing a mortal to advance, our universe overseers invariably rule in favor of the individual. Will creatures must be given one true opportunity to make their final choice about eternal life; the soul of each person is allowed to fully reveal its true intent and purpose.
112:5.22 ... personality and the relationships between personalities are never scaffolding; mortal memory of personality relationships has cosmic value and will persist. On the mansion worlds you will know and be known, and more, you will remember, and be remembered by, your onetime associates in the short but intriguing life on Urantia.
We hope you'll join us for The Cosmic Citizen!
