time capsules in eternity

Dear friends,

The journey continues, as Life ever unfolds within the movement of time, in the cycles of eternity. Currently I've veered away from the non-dual, 'God is All' view(pantheistic metaphysics)...to the more relative, progressive, process-oriented system of things (panentheistic), where we as children of time press forward towards a greater universe-destiny, as such is described in the Urantia Papers, the Fifth Epochal Revelation revealed to this world by a group of higher celestial beings and overseers of this local universe. Such a wonderful and vast record gives us a glimpse of eternity as unfolding thru time of the greater prospect of Life's glorious goal and ultimatum in Infinity.

The wonder of 'Being' itself remains, in all its dimensions both temporal and eternal, as all life stretches out towards potentials that seem near infinite. I recommend for intellectual and spiritual stimulation synthesizing science, philosophy and religion, the Urantia Papers as a wonderful primer to augment and inspire the human spirit towards the higher ideals of truth, goodness and beauty. Let us go forward in the divine Will and keep our eternal optimism high, for the greater plans of time and eternity are ever-present in the Universe circuits, reflecting forever within the space-domains of the Infinite Spirit.

God is the only stationary, self-contained, and changeless being in the whole universe of universes, having no outside, no beyond, no past, and no future. God is purposive energy (creative spirit) and absolute will, and these are self-existent and universal.

Since God is self-existent, he is absolutely independent. The very identity of God is inimical to change. "I, the Lord, change not." God is immutable; but not until you achieve Paradise status can you even begin to understand how God can pass from simplicity to complexity, from identity to variation, from quiescence to motion, from infinity to finitude, from the divine to the human, and from unity to duality and triunity. And God can thus modify the manifestations of his absoluteness because divine immutability does not imply immobility; God has will--he is will.

God is the being of absolute self-determination; there are no limits to his universe reactions save those which are self-imposed, and his freewill acts are conditioned only by those divine qualities and perfect attributes which inherently characterize his eternal nature. Therefore is God related to the universe as the being of final goodness plus a free will of creative infinity.

The Father-Absolute is the creator of the central and perfect universe and the Father of all other Creators. Personality, goodness, and numerous other characteristics, God shares with man and other beings, but infinity of will is his alone. God is limited in his creative acts only by the sentiments of his eternal nature and by the dictates of his infinite wisdom.

-Urantia Paper 4:4

* The mystery of Life includes the unchanging nature of the Deity-Creator and the ever-changing currents of space/time creation within the One Infinity which reveal the latent will of Spirit which is itself creative, purposive, active, generative and expanding. From within the Mind and Heart of the Infinite is all potential and actuality comprising the entire spectrum of all conditions of Existence and their ultimate destinies.
