The Supreme Being cannot be fully appreciated without taking into consideration source, function, and destiny: relationship to the originating Trinity, the universe of activity, and the Trinity Ultimate of immediate destiny. He is the indispensable focalizer, summarizer, and encompasser of evolutionary experience, effectively unifying the results of this mode of reality perception in his Deity nature.

Notes by Brad

  • The Supreme is twofold in the finite domain
    • The Mother: downwelling. The essence of eternity is being brought down to time via mother Deity.
      • From its observer vantage point, it can be the coordinator of all the facts of time.
    • The Almighty: upwelling. All the facts of time are culminating, summing to this essence of the totality of all that is temporal.


  • The Mother is the way.
    • It downwells thoroughly. It spans all of the temporal domain in a smooth continuumness.
    • No matter where you are in your long upward ascent, The Mother can meet you where you're at and povide the next infentesimally tiny step forward.
    • By contrast, The Sevenfold—the facet of Deity—spans vertically but is more of a staircase instead of a continuum.
      • Hence, we'd say The Sevenfold downsteps, whereas The Mother extends down.


  • Being a serious student
    • Elevated, philosophic texts written by a true human (or superhuman) requires careful reading.
      • While this is case with any great, reflective text, The Urantia Book takes the cake. Nothing else on earth comes close.
    • Know when to take the reading simplistically at face value, and when to reflect deeper to get at the complexity.
      • For example, Jesus said "I am the way."
      • Yes, that's true. And Jesus is an expression of the Sevenfold—a downstepping phenomenon
      • But Jesus is not magical. How does his Spirit of Truth ministry reach you individually? Just magically across space? No.
      • It reaches you via Mother Deity. Which is why The Mother is The Way.
      • Jesus' innocuous but bold statement requires reflection to fully appreciate it in its truest sense.
    • Start with truth, a philosophic frame, then engage the facts (the sentences in the 5th ER).
      • To outsiders it will appear you're ad hoc rationalizing
      • But you can know better. Consistency is a philosophic truth-like word, not a scientific fact word.
    • Your goal: reach a level above controversy. With the 5th ER, with all people, with everything.
      • A place of objective consciousness is where controversy vanishes (as controversy is a product of subjective consciousness)
      • If you don't engage the 5th ER reflectively, you will find nothing but abject controversy.
      • Genuinely objective consciousness has no controversy. It has a peace that passes all understanding.
      • A teacher of The Urantia Book who sees controversy in it is a false teacher.
    • Aim higher. Can you take the personal challenge of getting above controversy? Not being subject to controversy?
      • Not just in studying the 5th ER, but everywhere in life? Even your political life?
      • This does not mean being impassive, or repression.
      • It means an objective frame where you see the world from the eternity viewpoint.
    • The cultivation of reflective thinking: We have, by grace, a reality response. If you pause and reflect, by grace, you can cultivate the use of this faculty.
