Urantia Book Studygroup meeting on the 10th

Okay...back in the saddle after the holidays, I hope everyone had some pleasant experiences.

We'll be starting up again this Tuesday the 10th @ 6:30 @ 41 Crosby-first floor-buzzer on right of door.

If you haven't attended any of our meetings yet, now is a really great time to stop by. We've been having new people show up pretty regularly in the last couple of months so the group dynamic is very exciting. The contributions of new minds and spirits open completely new doors of information and experiences for us all.

New people coming in also gives us all an opportunity to bounce around  in the book. We usually read sequentially, but are more than willing to address specific questions or discoveries by anyone that wants us to. We have many long-time readers who can bridge some of the gaps and supply overviews that may make the Ubook appear overly complex ...or daunting.....and you, as a "unique" individual can do the same for us...even if you haven't read any of the papers.

That idea is actually one of the fundemental teachings. We each possess a unique, and intimate relationship with God in our inner looking through one window. The best way to get "more" of God is through the process of knowing and serving our brothers and sisiters. We each are totally unique manifestations of God, and carry the limitless reservoir of possibilities within US to "make real", God's will and imagination.

The "Answers" are within each one of us....and totally and freely charge, no requirements, just a willingness to receive them.

The Urantia Book is a workbook, a scaffolding of information, that allows us to be more "efficient" in this first level, almost wholly material life. The Urantia Book isn't magic, it doesn't create anything in us that isn't already just supplies information to rid us of fear, ignorance, superstition, and the rest of the mainly animal, and humanly distorted, and mis-interpreted, aspects of ourselves that weigh us down and hinder our spritual progress and functioning.

I frequently have people very new to the book tell me it scares too.

 And then I realized that the only thing I had to lose was all the fear, depression, self-doubt, anger, that comes along with being stuck in an animal derived body, held back by an overly material, profit driven, world that appeared to be dedicated to making my life a torment. But,......I knew I had a Spirit that desired to be free,.....and an obligation to God and the rest of the Universe Family to make that "real"........and no idea of what to do................then I found my "workbook".        Hope to see you Tuesday, your Pal, Robin
