Teacher Ophelius: “Dear One, the question has been asked about what it means to answer the Universal Father’s edict to ‘Be perfect, as I AM perfect,’ and more specifically, what it means for you — those living on Urantia. Certainly perfection in and of itself is something that is not attainable on the evolutionary worlds of time, but there is a ‘standard’ that is set for those at each planetary level of evolutionary status, meaning: ‘Be you perfect in your own day and time.’ Because life on each evolutionary world develops uniquely and stands at various stages of development, with respect to Light and Life status, there are different standards set for each as an expected ‘curve’ of normal development and growth as it is viewed by your planetary administrators: the Planetary Prince, the System Sovereign and the Most Highs of Edentia.
“On very young planets where will creatures are still working out the vicissitudes of primitive life having had very little development in science or culture, the bar is set rather low with the expectation that they will follow the path of tribe against tribe warfare while developing tools and more cunning ways to kill each other. At this level of development, there are few, if any, Thought Adjusters (TAs) of fusion status indwelling these creature minds. At best, TAs may temporarily indwell these minds to gain experience with the biological mind mechanisms for that species as it may later (in time) be evolving to a fusion status creature.
“Once a Planetary Prince and his staff come to an evolutionary world, the bar is raised with respect to the guidance and education that is afforded the surrounding tribes of natives. They are taught many things from farming, building, raising cattle, sanitation, personal hygiene, to the basic cosmology of the universe and spiritual realities including the worship of the Universal Father. They are also given codes of conduct, which they are expected to adopt when participating in the educational activities in the centers of the Planetary Prince and his staff. It is here where men and women first develop their societies and primitive governments as they take what they have learned back to their peoples.
“Later, when an Adamic pair (Adam and Eve) come to a world, the bar is raised yet again as the biology of the natives are elevated with the infusion of the Violet bloodline from the Adamic progeny. Spiritual development from this point begins to ‘ramp up’ and these creatures then move from merely obeying the laws of conduct to knowing with greater surety the leadings of the Indwelling Spirit as more and more of them begin to receive TAs of possible fusion status.
“Once a Magisterial Son, or a Creator Son visits the planet, the bar is raised yet again and the TAs flock to these worlds in great numbers which have been prepared by the Spirit of Truth to indwell the minds of those creatures for fusion potential. From this point, the planet is on an upward curve of development in both science and spirituality.
“Everything I have just described (greatly abridged) to you is more or less the ‘normal’ curve of planetary evolution and expectation. However, your world, being classed as an experimental world and one that has been involved in a system wide rebellion for over 200,000 years, has had a ‘relapse’ in growth and spiritual development, and so it is that the standard set for those who live their lives on Urantia is ‘adjusted’ for their ‘day and time.’ In part 2 of this message we shall look more closely at what that standard is and how it relates to your current development.
“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”

Teacher Ophelius: “In part 1 of this message we talked about the ‘normal’ curve of planetary development and what the expectation was for each world according to its evolutionary standing — to be ‘perfect’ meant living a life according to the guided and inherent maturity of the personal, spiritual, and social memes in planetary consciousness that were available to that day and generation. The ‘bar’ (expectation) that is set by your planetary administrators takes into consideration all these developmental factors for which a planetary dispensation is crafted to set standards and limitations for how each generation is to be guided according to its ‘intended’ path of development. To live a ‘perfect life’ on Urantia, is one of the most challenging endeavors in the universe for the souls born to this world and for the planetary administration that oversees a dispensation.
“Urantia, being an experimental world and having been greatly affected by the Lucifer Rebellion, was a recipe for disastrous setbacks in both the biological and sociological development of your species. There was much ‘tinkering’ by the rebellious leaders to ‘disconnect’ man from knowing the love of the Universal Father and the Great Plan. The ‘light of truth’ that inspires man to be more than what he is was nearly extinct on Urantia were it not for the emergency service of Machiventa Melchizedek — the ‘Priest of Salem’ who brought the lost teachings of your spiritual heritage back into planetary consciousness as he and his missionaries spread the light of truth throughout the world which then seeded all the known religions of today and paved a way for the greatest spiritual dispensation and revelation any world in the universe could hope for — the bestowal of a Creator Son born to woman as Jesus of Nazareth and the outpouring of the Spirit of Truth on all flesh.
“It is said that the Son of Man lived a perfect life and is the example for all worlds in the local universe for what a perfect life meant for that day and time which could therefore be extrapolated by planetary administrators across all stages of planetary development for the standards that would be used to guide the evolutionary process. Jesus was challenged in all ways in his humanity as any of you are in your lives. He is the pattern example for human behavior and spiritual achievement. He attained perfect ‘atunement’ with his Indwelling Spirit, which at that point did he awaken to his full consciousness as a Creator Son. In His words: ‘You shall achieve even greater things than I,’ was a testament for the powerful potential that is within the human heart. I say ‘heart’ because that is where the Spirit speaks.
“I admonish each of you to read your text on the Life and Teachings of Jesus and examine the powerful character of His humanity — the courage, compassion, and righteous living that he demonstrated among his fellows — even in the face of incredible ignorance and cruelty and in the actions of the darkened minds of that time. In His exemplary life He gives us the key to unlock that human potential to ‘achieve even greater things.’ He challenges us to love, not only with a neighborly love, but with a Fatherly love — even unto your enemies — a simple statement, but with an utterly powerful consequence.
“Peace to you,
“The Circle of Seven.”
A “dispensation” is defined as an epoch of time on an evolutionary world where certain rules and standards are set in place by the celestial planetary administration which governs the path of planetary evolution. This includes, but is not limited to: revelation, spiritual influence, and universe energies which may or may not be used in the process of moving a developing world from one epoch to another — a “playbook” of sorts. Worlds that have been involved in rebellion need very carefully considered dispensations. Every dispensation sets the bar for human “accountability” which determines the mercy ministry to be considered for the souls of that world.
