Prolotheos: “No man is an island. There is much truth in that statement. Every human being is a unique personality, but he or she is certainly not isolated from all others. We – humankind and celestials -- are all connected. There is a universal web of relationships and energies connecting us to God and to his creation. The establishment of communication with beings in another time-dimension, or in distant space, is not always available to human beings on Urantia, due to your current limited perception of the reflectivity channels.
“Your being connected to everything in the Universe stems from the fact that all share the same origin and sustenance from our Universal Father. This allows every being to consider him- or herself to be a rightful part of the whole. To function adequately in the universe depends on your embracing the effects of the existence and participation of others in your life, as well as of their influence on your life.
“Denying the existence of evil, or the evildoer and the suffering they bring, does not do anyone any good. Instead, one can use the same interconnection to return love. This restores the energies of goodness, entices the curiosity for truth, and increases the appreciation of beauty. This interconnectivity might well give evil its way to reach you, but you can choose to not return it, sending back love instead.
“This interconnection means that our actions have an impact on the universal web. Each person’s decisions and actions have an effect on all others. Whoever first causes the action will have the most affect of all – be it for good or bad. It’s like when you throw a stone on the surface of a still body of water. Starting from where the stone falls, a circle of ripples fans out in all directions, diminishing in strength as they reach farther and farther until they fade. So with your decisions and actions in life, you who caused the effect, remain the most affected by them. Others, according to their proximity to you, will also be affected. That, which affects the part, affects the whole, and although in a somewhat circumscribed way, the whole has now changed. What kind of change will you cause to the lives of others by your decisions and actions?
“Universal interconnection works for the good according to the will of the Father; it means that your decisions and actions will put you on the path of progress, ever ascending if in cooperation with the will of the Father. You will also be impacted by the decisions and actions of others, but whether good or evil matters little. All that matters is for your reaction to be embracing and understanding, rather than of anger and resistance.
“I am Prolotheos, your tutor. Carry on, my pupil. My love watches over you. So does the entire universe love you.”
