1. THE SEVEN SACRED WORLDS OF THE FATHER – P.144
P.144 – §1 The Father’s circuit of sacred life spheres
contains the only inherent personality secrets in the universe of universes.
These satellites of Paradise, the innermost of the three circuits, are
the only forbidden domains concerned with personality in the central universe.
Nether Paradise and the worlds of the Son are likewise closed to personalities,
but neither of those realms is in any way directly concerned with personality.
P.144 – §2 The Paradise worlds of the Father are
directed by the highest order of the Stationary Sons of the Trinity, the
Trinitized Secrets of Supremacy. Of these worlds I can tell little; of
their manifold activities I may tell less. Such information concerns only
those beings who function thereon and go forth therefrom. And though I
am somewhat familiar with six of these special worlds, never have I landed
on Divinington; that world is wholly forbidden to me.
P.144 – §3 One of the reasons for the secrecy of
these worlds is because each of these sacred spheres enjoys a specialized
representation, or manifestation, of the Deities composing the Paradise
Trinity; not a personality, but a unique presence of Divinity which can
only be appreciated and comprehended by those particular groups of intelligences
resident on, or admissible to, that particular sphere. The Trinitized
Secrets of Supremacy are the personal agents of these specialized and
impersonal presences of Divinity. And the Secrets of Supremacy are highly
personal beings, superbly endowed and marvelously adapted to their exalted
and exacting work.
P.144 – §4 1. DIVININGTON. This world is, in a unique
sense, the "bosom of the Father," the personal-communion sphere
of the Universal Father, and thereon is a special manifestation of his
divinity. Divinington is the Paradise rendezvous of the Thought Adjusters,
but it is also the home of numerous other entities, personalities, and
other beings taking origin in the Universal Father. Many personalities
besides the Eternal Son are of direct origin by the solitary acts of the
Universal Father. Only the Father fragments and those personalities and
other beings of direct and exclusive origin in the Universal Father fraternize
and function on this abode.
P.144 – §5 The secrets of Divinington include the
secret of the bestowal and mission of Thought Adjusters. Their nature,
origin, and the technique of their contact with the lowly creatures of
the evolutionary worlds is a secret of this Paradise sphere. These amazing
transactions do not personally concern the rest of us, and therefore do
the Deities deem it proper to withhold certain features of this great
and divine ministry from our full understanding. In so far as we come
in contact with this phase of divine activity, we are permitted full knowledge
of these transactions, but concerning the intimate details of this great
bestowal we are not fully informed.
P.145 – §1 This sphere also holds the secrets of
the nature, purpose, and activities of all other forms of Father fragments,
of the Gravity Messengers, and of hosts of other beings unrevealed to
you. It is highly probable that those truths pertaining to Divinington
which are withheld from me, if revealed, would merely confuse and handicap
me in my present work, and still again, perhaps they are beyond the conceptual
capacity of my order of being.
P.145 – §2 2. SONARINGTON. This sphere is the "bosom
of the Son," the personal receiving world of the Eternal Son. It
is the Paradise headquarters of the descending and ascending Sons of God
when, and after, they are fully accredited and finally approved. This
world is the Paradise home for all Sons of the Eternal Son and of his
co-ordinate and associate Sons. There are numerous orders of divine sonship
attached to this supernal abode which have not been revealed to mortals
since they are not concerned with the plans of the ascension scheme of
human spiritual progression through the universes and on to Paradise.
P.145 – §3 The secrets of Sonarington include the
secret of the incarnation of the divine Sons. When a Son of God becomes
a Son of Man, is literally born of woman, as occurred on your world nineteen
hundred years ago, it is a universal mystery. It is occurring right along
throughout the universes, and it is a Sonarington secret of divine sonship.
The Adjusters are a mystery of God the Father. The incarnation of the
divine Sons is a mystery of God the Son; it is a secret locked up in the
seventh sector of Sonarington, a realm penetrated by none save those who
have personally passed through this unique experience. Only those phases
of incarnation having to do with your ascension career have been brought
to your notice. There are many other phases of the mystery of the incarnation
of the Paradise Sons of unrevealed types on missions of universe service
which are undisclosed to you. And there are still other Sonarington mysteries.
P.145 – §4 3. SPIRITINGTON. This world is the "bosom
of the Spirit," the Paradise home of the high beings that exclusively
represent the Infinite Spirit. Here forgather the Seven Master Spirits
and certain of their offspring from all universes. At this celestial abode
may also be found numerous unrevealed orders of spirit personalities,
beings assigned to the manifold activities of the universe not associated
with the plans of upstepping the mortal creatures of time to the Paradise
levels of eternity.
P.145 – §5 The secrets of Spiritington involve the
impenetrable mysteries of reflectivity. We tell you of the vast and universal
phenomenon of reflectivity, more particularly as it is operative on the
headquarters worlds of the seven superuniverses, but we never fully explain
this phenomenon, for we do not fully understand it. Much, very much, we
do comprehend, but many basic details are still mysterious to us. Reflectivity
is a secret of God the Spirit. You have been instructed concerning reflectivity
functions in relation to the ascension scheme of mortal survival, and
it does so operate, but reflectivity is also an indispensable feature
of the normal working of numerous other phases of universe occupation.
This endowment of the Infinite Spirit is also utilized in channels other
than those of intelligence gathering and information dissemination. And
there are other secrets of Spiritington.
P.145 – §6 4. VICEGERINGTON. This planet is the "bosom
of the Father and the Son" and is the secret sphere of certain unrevealed
beings who take origin by the acts of the Father and the Son. This is
also the Paradise home of many glorified
P.146 – §0 beings of complex ancestry, those whose
origin is complicated because of the many diverse techniques operative
in the seven superuniverses. Many groups of beings forgather on this world
whose identity has not been revealed to Urantia mortals.
P.146 – §1 The secrets of Vicegerington include the
secrets of trinitization, and trinitization constitutes the secret of
authority to represent the Trinity, to act as vicegerents of the Gods.
Authority to represent the Trinity attaches only to those beings, revealed
and unrevealed, who are trinitized, created, eventuated, or eternalized
by any two or all three of the Paradise Trinity. Personalities brought
into being by the trinitizing acts of certain types of glorified creatures
represent no more than the conceptual potential mobilized in that trinitization,
albeit such creatures may ascend the path of Deity embrace open to all
of their kind.
P.146 – §2 Nontrinitized beings do not fully understand
the technique of trinitization by either two or three Creators or by certain
creatures. You will never fully understand such a phenomenon unless, in
the far-distant future of your glorified career, you should essay and
succeed in such an adventure, because otherwise these secrets of Vicegerington
will always be forbidden you. But to me, a high Trinity-origin being,
all sectors of Vicegerington are open. I fully understand, and just as
fully and sacredly protect, the secret of my origin and destiny.
P.146 – §3 There are still other forms and phases
of trinitization which have not been brought to the notice of the Urantia
peoples, and these experiences, in their personal aspects, are duly protected
in the secret sector of Vicegerington.
P.146 – §4 5. SOLITARINGTON. This world is the "bosom
of the Father and the Spirit" and is the rendezvous of a magnificent
host of unrevealed beings of origin in the conjoint acts of the Universal
Father and the Infinite Spirit, beings who partake of the traits of the
Father in addition to their Spirit inheritance.
P.146 – §5 This is also the home of the Solitary
Messengers and of other personalities of the superangelic orders. You
know of very few of these beings; there are vast numbers of orders unrevealed
on Urantia. Because they are domiciled on the fifth world, it does not
necessarily follow that the Father had aught to do with the creation of
Solitary Messengers or their superangelic associates, but in this universe
age he does have to do with their function. During the present universe
age this is also the status sphere of the Universe Power Directors.
P.146 – §6 There are numerous additional orders of
spirit personalities, beings unknown to mortal man, who look upon Solitarington
as their Paradise home sphere. It should be remembered that all divisions
and levels of universe activities are just as fully provided with spirit
ministers as is the realm concerned with helping mortal man ascend to
his divine Paradise destiny.
P.146 – §7 The secrets of Solitarington. Besides
certain secrets of trinitization, this world holds the secrets of the
personal relation of the Infinite Spirit with certain of the higher offspring
of the Third Source and Center. On Solitarington are held the mysteries
of the intimate association of numerous unrevealed orders with the spirits
of the Father, of the Son, and of the Spirit, with the threefold spirit
of the Trinity, and with the spirits of the Supreme, the Ultimate, and
P.146 – §8 6. SERAPHINGTON. This sphere is the "bosom
of the Son and the Spirit" and is the home world of the vast hosts
of unrevealed beings created by the Son and the Spirit. This is also the
destiny sphere of all ministering orders of the
P.147 – §0 angelic hosts, including supernaphim,
seconaphim, and seraphim. There also serve in the central and outlying
universes many orders of superb spirits who are not "ministering
spirits to those who shall be heirs of salvation." All these spirit
workers in all levels and realms of universe activities look upon Seraphington
as their Paradise home.
P.147 – §1 The secrets of Seraphington involve a
threefold mystery, only one of which I may mention–the mystery of seraphic
transport. The ability of various orders of seraphim and allied spirit
beings to envelop within their spirit forms all orders of nonmaterial
personalities and to carry them away on lengthy interplanetary journeys,
is a secret locked up in the sacred sectors of Seraphington. The transport
seraphim comprehend this mystery, but they do not communicate it to the
rest of us, or perhaps they cannot. The other mysteries of Seraphington
pertain to the personal experiences of types of spirit servers as yet
not revealed to mortals. And we refrain from discussing the secrets of
such closely related beings because you can almost comprehend such near
orders of existence, and it would be akin to betrayal of trust to present
even our partial knowledge of such phenomena.
P.147 – §2 7. ASCENDINGTON. This unique world is
the "bosom of the Father, Son, and Spirit," the rendezvous of
the ascendant creatures of space, the receiving sphere of the pilgrims
of time who are passing through the Havona universe on their way to Paradise.
Ascendington is the actual Paradise home of the ascendant souls of time
and space until they attain Paradise status. You mortals will spend most
of your Havona "vacations" on Ascendington. During your Havona
life Ascendington will be to you what the reversion directors were during
the local and superuniverse ascension. Here you will engage in thousands
of activities which are beyond the grasp of mortal imagination. And as
on every previous advance in the Godward ascent, your human self will
here enter into new relationships with your divine self.
P.147 – §3 The secrets of Ascendington include the
mystery of the gradual and certain building up in the material and mortal
mind of a spiritual and potentially immortal counterpart of character
and identity. This phenomenon constitutes one of the most perplexing mysteries
of the universes–the evolution of an immortal soul within the mind of
a mortal and material creature.
P.147 – §4 You will never fully understand this mysterious
transaction until you reach Ascendington. And that is just why all Ascendington
will be open to your wondering gaze. One seventh of Ascendington is forbidden
to me–that sector concerned with this very secret which is (or will be)
the exclusive experience and possession of your type of being. This experience
belongs to your human order of existence. My order of personality is not
directly concerned with such transactions. It is therefore forbidden to
me and eventually revealed to you. But even after it is revealed to you,
for some reason it forever remains your secret. You do not reveal it to
us nor to any other order of beings. We know about the eternal fusion
of a divine Adjuster and an immortal soul of human origin, but the ascendant
finaliters know this very experience as an absolute reality.
