The following narrative presents the second three phases of the universe career of an Adjuster-indwelt mortal, for such a destiny may be anticipated by all the human races of our planet Urantia.
4. Morontia Progressors. From the mansion worlds on up through the spheres of the system, constellation, and the universe, mortals are classed as morontia progressors; they are traversing the transition spheres of mortal ascension. As the ascending mortals progress from the lower to the higher of the morontia worlds, they serve on countless assignments in association with their teachers and in company with their more advanced and senior brethren.
Morontia progression pertains to continuing advancement of intellect, spirit, and personality form. Survivors are still three-natured beings. Throughout the entire morontia experience they are wards of the local universe. The regime of the superuniverse does not function until the spirit career begins.
Mortals acquire real spirit identity just before they leave the local universe headquarters for the receiving worlds of the minor sectors of the superuniverse. Passing from the final morontia stage to the first or lowest spirit status is but a slight transition. The mind, personality, and character are unchanged by such an advance; only does the form undergo modification. But the spirit form is just as real as the morontia body, and it is equally discernible.
Before departing from their native local universes for the superuniverse receiving worlds, the mortals of time are recipients of spirit confirmation from the local universe sovereignty, the Creator Son and the local universe Mother Spirit. From this point on, the status of the ascending mortal is forever settled. Superuniverse wards have never been known to go astray. Ascending seraphim are also advanced in angelic standing at the time of their departure from the local universes.
5. Superuniverse Wards. All ascenders arriving on the training worlds of the superuniverses become the wards of their superuniverse rulers, the Ancient of Days; they have traversed the morontia life of the local universe and are now accredited spirits. As young spirits, they begin the ascension of the superuniverse system of training and culture, extending from the receiving spheres of their minor sector in through the study worlds of the ten major sectors and on to the higher cultural spheres of the superuniverse headquarters.
There are three orders of student spirits in accordance with their sojourn upon the minor sector, major sectors, and the superuniverse headquarters worlds of spirit progress ion. As morontia ascenders studied and worked on the worlds of the local universe, so spirit ascenders continue to master new worlds while they practice at giving out to others that which they have imbibed at the experiential founts of wisdom. But going to school as a spirit being in the superuniverse career is very unlike anything that has ever entered the imaginative realms of the material mind of us human beings.
Before leaving the superuniverse for Havona, these ascending spirits receive the same thorough course in superuniverse management that they received during their morontia experience in local universe supervision. Before spirit mortals reach Havona, their chief study, but not exclusive occupation, is the mastery of local and superuniverse administration. The reason for all of this experience is not now fully apparent, but no doubt the revelators conclude that such training is wise and necessary in view of our possible future destiny as members of the Corps of the Finality, the present known destination of us ascending Adjuster-fused mortals of time.
The superuniverse regime is not the same for all ascending mortals. They receive the same general education, but special groups and classes are carried through special courses of instruction and are put through specific courses of training.
6. Havona Pilgrims. When spirit development is complete, even though not replete, then the surviving mortal prepares for the long flight to Havona, the haven of evolutionary spirits. On earth, we were a creature of flesh and blood, through the local universe we were a morontia being; through the superuniverse we were an evolving spirit; with our arrival on the receiving worlds of Havona our spiritual education begins in reality and in earnest; our eventual appearance on Paradise will be as a perfected spirit.
The journey from the superuniverse headquarters to the Havona receiving spheres is always made alone. From now on no more class or group instruction will be administered. We are through with the technical and administrative training of the evolutionary worlds of time and space.
Now begins our personal education, our individual spiritual training. From first to last, throughout all the billion perfect eternal worlds of Havona, the instruction is personal and threefold in nature: intellectual, spiritual, and experiential.
The first act of our Havona career will be to recognize and thank our transport seconaphim for the long and safe journey. Then we are presented to those beings who will sponsor our early Havona activities. Next, we go to register our arrival and prepare our message of thanksgiving and adoration for dispatch to the Creator Son of our local universe, the universe Father who made possible our ascendant career. This concludes the formalities of the Havona arrival; whereupon we are accorded a long period of leisure for free observation, and this affords opportunity for looking up our friends, fellows, and associates of our long ascension experience. We may also consult the broadcasts to ascertain who of our fellow pilgrims have departed for Havona since the time of our leaving Uversa, the capital of our seventh superuniverse Orvonton.
The fact of our arrival on the receiving worlds of Havona will be duly transmitted to the headquarters of our local universe and personally conveyed to our seraphic guardian, wherever that seraphim may chance to be.
The ascendant mortals have been thoroughly trained in the affairs of the evolutionary worlds of space; now they begin their long and profitable contact with the created spheres of perfection. As the revelators conclude: What a preparation for some future work is afforded by this combined, unique, and extraordinary experience! But they reveal that they cannot tell us about Havona, for we must see these worlds to appreciate their glory or to understand their grandeur.
