July 7, 2020 [Paper 115:7, p. 1266]

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, mother Deity can be the coordinator of all the facts of time.
      • Only the essence of eternity is brought down. It's impossible to bring the substance of eternity into 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 continuum-ness.
    • No matter where you are in your long upward ascent, The Mother can meet you where you're at and provide that next infinitesimally tiny step forward.
    • By contrast, The Sevenfold—the facet of Deity—spans vertically but is more of a discrete 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) require careful reading.
      • While this is case with any great, reflective text, The Urantia Book stand above all others. 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. 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 is an expression of the Sevenfold—a downstepping phenomenon—but reaches you via mother Deity, an extending-down phenomenon.
      • Jesus' seemingly simple, bold statement requires reflection to fully appreciate 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.
    • Aim higher: Your goal: reach a level above controversy.'
      • Can you take the personal challenge of getting above controversy? Not being subject to it or ruled by it?
      • With the 5th ER. With all people. With politics. With everything under the sun.
      • Controversy is a product of subjective consciousness
      • Genuinely objective consciousness has no controversy. It has a peace that passes all understanding.
      • This does not mean being impassive, or repression.
      • It means an objective frame where you see the world from the eternity viewpoint.
    • Does The Urantia Book appear controversial?
      • If you don't engage the 5th ER reflectively, you will find nothing but abject controversy.
      • A teacher of The Urantia Book who sees controversy in it is a false teacher.
    • 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.
