Human beings were created to presently embark upon the long, long journey to Paradise, the fascinating struggle of the eternal adventure of attaining God the Father. This transcendent goal of all children of time is to find the eternal God, to comprehend the divine nature, to recognize the Universal Father. All God-knowing creatures have only one supreme ambition, just one consuming desire, and that is to become, as they are in their spheres, like God as he is in his Paradise perfection of personality and in his universal sphere of righteous supremacy. From the Universal Father who inhabits eternity there has gone forth the supreme mandate, “Be you perfect, even as I am perfect. In love and mercy, the messengers of
Paradise have carried this divine exhortation down through the ages and out through the universes of total creation, even to such lowly animal-origin creatures as ourselves, the human races of this planet, universally named Urantia.
Though you cannot find God by searching, if you will submit to the leading of the indwelling spirit, you will be unerringly guided, step by step, life by life, through universe upon universe, and age by age, until you finally stand in the presence of the Paradise personality of God Himself. The great God makes direct contact with all mortal human beings and gives a part of his infinite and eternal and incomprehensible self to live and dwell within each normal-minded individuals of us. If you yield to the leadings of the spiritual forces in you and around you, you cannot fail to attain the high destiny established by a loving God as the universe goal of us all his ascendant creatures; native to this evolutionary world of space.
If you are wholeheartedly spiritually motivated, unreservedly consecrated to the doing of the Father’s will to live in a Godlike manner the life of your daily doings then, since the human is so certainly and so effectively spiritually endowed by an indwelling and divine Spirit, there cannot fail to materialize in your experience the sublime consciousness of knowing God and the supernal assurance of surviving for the purpose of finding God by the progressive experience of becoming more and more like him.
Every normal minded human being is spiritually indwelt by a surviving indwelling spirit, the Thought Adjuster, the Mystery Monitors. If such a human mind is sincerely and spiritually motivated, if such a human soul desires to know God and become like him, honestly wants to do the Father’s will, there exists no negative influence of mortal deprivation nor positive power of possible interference which can prevent such a divinely motivated soul from securely ascending to the portals of Paradise.
The Father desires all his creatures to be in personal communion with him. He has on Paradise a place to receive all those whose survival status and spiritual nature make possible such attainment. Therefore, settle in philosophy now and forever: To each of us and to all of us, God is approachable, the Father is attainable, the way is open; the forces of divine love and the ways and means of divine administration are all interlocked in an effort to facilitate the advancement of every worthy intelligence of every universe to the Paradise presence of God Himself.
