Group: Pocatello TeaM
. . . . Tonight's lesson has to do with sharing creatorship with God. It is, in fact, an aspect of your involvement with God, the Supreme. When you stop to think about it, we are in existence in this universe because it is the will of God that it should be created. The eternal universe of Havona, circling around Paradise, fully expresses the nature of God in beauty, in wisdom, in exquisite variety, and infinite perfection. But the Trinity decided that They wanted to expand Their creatorship prerogatives; They wanted to share them with Their own Sons and Daughters so that They could build a new kind of universe, one in which creatorship is shared all the way down the line. This new universe is the one that you and I live in. It is the evolving Grand Universe, the arena of the evolving Supreme.
All your gifts of creativity are inherent in your personality, as all personalities are creative. This is the link between your creativity and that of the First, Second, and Third Sources and Centers. We are all personal beings, and therefore, inherently creative. "But", you may protest, "I am not an artist; I can't do what some of my talented friends do. I am not a musician. I cannot do what my talented friends do. I am not a writer. I cannot compose novels, poetry, etc." Perhaps you do not have these particular gifts, but you are still a creator.
Think of this, my friends. Because of your free will you choose how to structure your days. You create the milieu of your lives by your choices day by day, yes, moment by moment. You are creating yourselves, momentarily, even as you are creating your life's opportunities. All of you parents have biologically created your children, and if you are good parents, you are creating a growing and healthy environment. To be aligned with God, to be doing His will always involves creativity. To be in opposition to God's will is to be aligned with destruction rather than creation.
You may be wondering why I am talking about creativity. I have chosen this topic because I wish to broaden the base of your understanding. I wish to enliven your minds so that you will be more grateful for your existence, for now you can understand your inherent connection with our true Parents, in that you are their children, and have commonality of personality status.We do not relate to an abstract Force. We do not worship a chemical formula. We are the children of a personal Father and Mother, in one Parent combined, and we are cells in the body of God the Supreme. The prerogatives of creativity are inherent in personality as they are expressed through free will. The reality of belonging to the Supreme limits the free will arena in some measure so that one's choices do not handicap or harm other person's choices. Again, using the body as an illustration: the liver functions in harmony with the kidneys, not in opposition; the bones and muscles cooperate for movement to be possible, they do not act in opposition. In like manner, your creativity is blended and limited by your being a part of the whole, not just the whole of planetary life on Urantia, but the Whole of the Superuniverse of Orvonton, of the Grand Universe which is in the process of completion.
Now we come to the great mystery, the barrier of the next universe age. We believe that we shall be involved in the organization and administration of the next level of the universe expansion into the first, second, third, and fourth outer space levels, already in process of formation. In order for us to be involved with the life that will be developed, the entire universe career ahead of us argues for a purpose greater than our perfection attainment alone. Our creativity will go beyond ourselves. Indeed, the Supreme will be part of the completion of the Ultimate in that next universe age which awaits the Paradise Finaliters.
These are no "small potatoes", my friends! Your lives are of immense significance. We are part of the grandest experiment that can be conceived! You and I are not mere animals in our origin. We are human and divine in our potential personality fusion and when you reach the status of someone like myself, this fusion will occur, if not before. But it is really just the beginning of the immense creativity of all who are part of the Supreme, as they are creating together in their interlocking relationships. It is awesome, truly, what God has decided to share with you and me in this universe age of the development and completion of the Almighty Supreme.
I realize that this topic may have stretched your minds a bit, but then, that's the purpose of meeting with us: to stretch your minds, to open your hearts, to free your hands from the routine things you do so that they may be available to do the work of God in the world. My friends, I have completed my thoughts. . . . .
