Has anyone here read about or heard of the Urantia Book?

I like a variety of sources, but this one is definitely intriguing and makes you think. =D

Here's the take for the separations of soul/spirit/body/mind as the book states. (by the way it's free to read online so I dont think they mind if I post it here! Also Urantia refers to the name given to Earth by the other beings watching over us, so Urantian refers to us!)

These qualities of universal reality are manifest in Urantian human experience on the following levels:


1. Body. The material or physical organism of man. The living electrochemical mechanism of animal nature and origin.


2. Mind. The thinking, perceiving, and feeling mechanism of the human organism. The total conscious and unconscious experience. The intelligence associated with the emotional life reaching upward through worship and wisdom to the spirit level.


3. Spirit. The divine spirit that indwells the mind of man--the Thought Adjuster. This immortal spirit is prepersonal--not a personality, though destined to become a part of the personality of the surviving mortal creature.


4. Soul. The soul of man is an experiential acquirement. As a mortal creature chooses to "do the will of the Father in heaven," so the indwelling spirit becomes the father of a new reality in human experience. The mortal and material mind is the mother of this same emerging reality. The substance of this new reality is neither material nor spiritual--it is morontial. This is the emerging


PS: Thought Adjuster, if you're not familiar with the term, refers to the actual connection in us and the One Source, like the feeling of intuition...like an autopilot inside ourselves, like us being the airplane flying through life.

I tried but I just can't get my teeth into the Urantia book, it looks interesting though. I guess I'm not brainy enough, it's not for the wimpy reader!

No such thing as the wimpy reader, just poorly written books ......

(not saying that the Urantia one is by the way!)

Writers write what they "see'....and painters paint what they "see".....the writing and painting of yesterday is the reality of today. Go to the ancient symbols website and tell me that the pics do not...absolutely do not.....depict flying saucers.....your alternatives are slim....they were painting GOD....and it was alien in nature...just as the halos are....just as the modern day auras are.....just as those who "see" can know with comfort that certain of us are not of this earth.

Yes, Jung said that too about flying saucers; all traditional art was a depiction of God .... everything Is .... knowingly or acceptingly or not .... gosh I know I drive some people mad when I say such things, but there we go !!
