The Oscars and the Hollywood Delusion. A New Hope for the Future.

Gabriel of Urantia / TaliasVan
April 20, 2017

This article is not just about the Oscars, it’s about the unethical practices, immorality, and injustice that is prevalent in all areas of society, which includes the highly influential film and music industry in Hollywood. The movie industry has become very corrupted, with much confusion as to what values should be reflected in motion pictures that would inspire progress in the evolution of ...

The Office of The President and Free Speech

Gabriel of Urantia
February 8, 2017

We may have our likes and dislikes of the person holding the Presidency, but we do great disservice to our country when we disrespect the office that the President occupies, as so many did with the previous President. We don’t have to believe in every doctrine of the new President; as a matter of fact, we don’t have to believe in any of them. But we need to respect the office and not ...

Is Blood Thicker Than God?

Gabriel of Urantia
August 2, 2016

From the beginning of the Lucifer Rebellion around 200,000 years ago, humans—as well as nonhuman mortals and various celestial orders in the system of Satania—have had to make the decision between following God’s ways or rebelling against them, and this has been the way on our fallen world since then.1 The Old and New Testaments of the Bible refer to families at war among each other that ...

Joy, Hope, And A Sense of Future — Where Did It Go In Our Troubling World?

Gabriel of Urantia
April 8, 2016

I am a “Baby Boomer” and grew up in the 1950s and 1960s, with memories of television shows like the one about the Nelson family, which depicted a happy, easy-going American family living the American Dream. When I graduated high school in 1964—even though the Vietnam War was going on and I was stupid enough to try to join the Marines—there was still a sense of the future. There was...

"Syria" Music Video Aims to Inspire Compassion & Action / End Apathy

Global Change Media
December 28, 2015

For the past five years, the Syrian conflict has been pushing the limits of our collective apathy farther than any of us would feel comfortable admitting. Labeled as the worst humanitarian crisis of our time, the civil war in Syria now presents an opportunity to us as individuals to stand up for the 380,000 refugees that Amnesty International considers especially vulnerable — torture ...

Open Letter To The Public From Global Community Communications Alliance

Gabriel of Urantia & Niánn Emerson Chase
December 11, 2015

The name—“Global Community Communications Alliance” (GCCA)—must be a mouthful for some people to say, and some would prefer to use the word “cult” when referring to us. We wonder if those few who use that word to identify those in GCCA realize the danger they are causing our children. Remember Waco? Usually a cult is the other church down the street, and with apostates ...

Why the Serial Killings in our Schools

Gabriel of Urantia
October 9, 2015

To stop these senseless serial killings in our schools and other places, I’m going to coin the term “cultural rehabilitation,” for this is what we have to do in our country. We live in a violent country. We see violence in our films, on television, and in the news. We live with the constant bombarding of who did what to whom. Mental illness is not just with the shooters. To a ...

Can Anger Ever Be “Good”? Some Thoughts

Niánn Emerson Chase
May 12, 2015

Concerning the emotion of anger, which The URANTIA Book refers to as one of the "mental poisons,” I know that Jesus experienced and expressed anger at times, and he lived his life in perfection as a human on this world. How can that be then, that Jesus felt and expressed anger? What I have come to realize is that anger is a very real human emotion that has two sides (like two ...

International Women’s Day Event at the Sea of Glass

Celinas Ruth, Esq.
March 16, 2015

International Womenʼs Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900ʼs, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. In 1908, great unrest and critical debate was occurring amongst women. Women's oppression and inequality was spurring women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for ...

I am very proud to live in Santa Cruz County—a county that has a good number of activists for a variety of worthy causes. And I want to honor Mayor Garino of Nogales, Arizona for his valiant stance for prayer before the council meetings—a ...

Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation: Sharing a Heartfelt Conversation

Niánn Emerson Chase
March 25, 2014

I realize that gender identity and sexual orientation for any individual are very complex issues, with not only biological factors but also environmental, social, and cultural elements to consider. In our modern society, with its fast pace and digital device onslaught, we all need to slow down and take time to have honest and thoughtful conversations about this sensitive and important aspect of ...

Religious Freedom Challenged

Celinas Ruth, Esq.
October 9, 2013

The forefathers of the United States of America sought religious freedom, and the First Amendment made a step toward that guarantee—“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof . . . .” Religious freedom is often challenged. Religious intolerance and bigotry create a fertile ground for extremists who, for financial gain...

The Decoys Of Caligastia To Keep People Away From  The Fifth Epochal Revelation

Gabriel of Urantia
September 25, 2013

I write this article on some of the deceptions that Caligastia historically has used and continues to use now to discredit both The URANTIA Book and the Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation (found in The Cosmic Family volumes). Deception through decoy has been a major trick of the fallen Planetary Prince of Urantia (Caligastia) since his fall 200,000 years ago, beginning by aligning with ...

The Great Controversy Between A Connection To The Forces Of Light Or The Forces Of Darkness

Gabriel of Urantia
July 24, 2013

Many scientists in physics and in other areas of science are finding out that everything is connected. The micro/macro connection is from the smallest atom to the largest star. Great writers throughout history have written about this universal connection, such as Walt Whitman, who said when a leaf drops stars feel it. Since everything is energy, broken circuitry from the source of energy affects ...

Gabriel of Urantia
May 23, 2013

I am glad that so many Occupiers all over the country have been taking my advice and trying to start communities and grow organic food. But sustainable living is not just a physical thing that you do and goals of things to accomplish. Long-lasting and continually evolving sustainable living is a shift in consciousness, a state of being. It is a total lifestyle and a way of thinking and doing that ...

December 15, 2012

After 3,000 Americans were killed on 9/11, that painful memory was still fresh and the healing and reparations were still under way when then-President George W. Bush made his famous speech where he encouraged everyone "to go shopping more." In our profit-driven economy, the big corporations—owned by the 1%—want Americans and the so-called “free world” to be consumers, ...

Is There Such A Thing As Safe Areas And Protected Areas? Are They The Same?

Gabriel of Urantia
October 12, 2012

To answer the questions posed in the title of this article, you have to ask what are you trying to be safe from—weather catastrophes or invading armies or starvation or wild animals or poisonous insects and other creatures? Often just using good common sense keeps us safe when making decisions concerning certain geographic areas. For instance, if you wanted to be 100% safe from ...

I personally believe that there should be no borders anywhere on the earth and that we are all planetary citizens, in actuality one planetary family. I coined the phrase in the 1990s: “One God, One Planetary Family.” The power elite or the 1% would want a different kind of one world government for their own greedy and power-hungry reasons, so that negative movement is ...

I do not think that the Mayans or the ancient Egyptians or Nostradamus or the Hopi or other indigenous peoples or any one spiritual ideology has all the answers pertaining to how the Creator works with humans to accomplish the fight against evil. We can only find these answers in some partial truth in the Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation that explains the physics of rebellion, published ...

For those in the Occupy movement or any activist who is trying to make change within the existing “system” about anything, they can no longer ignore what is happening to global civilization and the planet as a whole—financially, socially, politically, environmentally, spiritually, etc. They cannot ignore any longer the spiritual aspect or the Spiritualution movement that is ...

The “99%” is correct conceptually but wrong in reality, because there is still a great number of middle class left over from the good ol’ days, with enough money in the bank for them to feel secure.

Gabriel of Urantia
March 10, 2012

With the onslaught (particularly in Western civilization) of modernization, industrialization, and technology, people have become more isolated from each other and from the local community where they may live. At one time in our human history people used to know the names of everyone in the tribe or neighborhood. They ate, played, washed clothes, watched each other’s children, fixed ...

In our extra-large cities of more than ten million people, how big ...

There come times, even in the droughts of the worst rebellions ever to unfold, that the Creator loans His eyes and ears and heart to sinners lost in their own sadness and madness. Ironies on fallen worlds are many, including that the innocent seem to suffer the most and that prophets and saviors sent into the world receive the worst of blame by the worst of the perpetrators.

The Republican nominees who ran for the presidential candidacy in the 2011 and 2012 can also be called “the parade of new souls.” There is a lot to learn about the difference between a new soul and an older soul or starseed, which has taken me authoring two published books (called The Cosmic Family, Volumes I and II) so far to even begin to teach. But for the clarity of this ...

The Occupy movement—no matter how many protestors—is overpowered by the might of the power-elite’s police force and “weapons of gas-destruction” against the poor and disenfranchised, students, and the once middle class, as the early colonists were by the British empire. Long before the first shot was fired at Lexington—the shot heard ‘round the ...

Jesus wasn’t a politician. However, I recently watched both Democratic and Republican debates. I was hoping to watch a third-party debate, but that’s another article.

And in those 10 minutes, from all of the candidates, I think I understood about 5 seconds of their ...

It is a true racial coalition that ...

This is the method Jesus used with the ...
