Prolotheos: “It is easy to see what is ‘out there’. It requires no special training. Two good eyes is all you need. It is considerably more difficult to perceive life within. Humans tend to be so preoccupied with ‘the external’ that most are unable to alter that mind-set and look within. They become markedly materialistic, incapable of noticing the small and still voice of his or her Spirit Self. Human beings must strive and survive in the jungle of the external world, but real life is not ‘out there’, but rather within you all.

“Many women and men on Urantia today are intellectual giants, political geniuses, super-skilled artists, but within they remain spiritual dwarfs, and don’t know how to balance their external lives with their internal needs. Your life within is not too different from the physical one. Like your physical body, your soul had a birth, when your cosmic self started to live in your mid-mind. Like your physical body, your soul needs to be nourished, so it can grow into a mature spiritual self. Soul nutrition comes from the practice of Goodness, sponsoring Truth, and the appreciation of Beauty. Helping those in need, sticking by the truth, and promoting and appreciating beauty and harmony is what feeds your soul with spiritual delicasies.

“Your life within is connected to your life external, but sometimes, it needs your undivided attention. To strengthen your intellect you acquire more knowledge; to develop your physical muscles you must do your exercises. Similarly, to develop your soul you meditate. Meditation, or stillness, helps you to become familiar with the needs of your soul. Meditation expands your spiritual perception, starting with the Spirit of God in you, as well as the many spiritual beings around you -- beings like me, eager to contact you and promote your spiritual growth.

“Your external life’s one and only purpose is the development of your soul. You might live your earthly existence without paying attention to your soul and, perhaps, still have a ‘happy’ material life. However, at the end of your terrestrial stay you would reach the Mansion Worlds with a badly undernourished soul.

“In summary there are two dimensions to terrestrial life: life internal and life external. Strive to obtain or to regain a balance between the two. Prioritizing your spiritual life will bring greater meaning and satisfaction to your earthly existence. I am Prolotheos, your friend of always. Call on me; for I am just a thought away.”
