The Change Points of Our Lives

by Niánn Emerson Chase


I recently had an unpleasant experience while attending the Global Community Communications Alliance-sponsored “Earth Sustainability Day” at Avalon Gardens. As I was signing some petitions in support of creating a Department of Peace within the U.S. government, another individual was next to me doing the same thing. Realizing that I was one of the spiritual leaders of Global Community Communications Alliance (GCCA), a religious-based intentional community and global change organization, this person threw down the pen and went on a tirade of how they hated “all that religious stuff” etc. etc. and then stormed off. Interestingly, this individual was “working” one of the guest tables representing an organization that supported peaceful and sustainable practices. Though I did not personally feel slighted, I did consider pointing out the inconsistencies of being a guest on GCCA property, participating in an event hosted by GCCA, and behaving in a manner that was disrespectful and did not contribute to the sustainability and peaceful ways that the individual advocated. I didn't; at the time I chose to let this all slide. But here I am writing about the incident.

This person represents to me many pro-active persons who are sincerely (or not so sincerely) concerned with the state of our world and who want to contribute in some way to sustainability (the new buzz word). I can understand people's “turn off” to religion in general, for look at the terrible things done in the name of religion! Look at the hypocrisy, the stupidity, the abominations done by so-called religious people and institutions. But also look at the wonderful, beneficial things that have been accomplished by religious people and institutions. It's a mixed bag, isn't it?

Taking into consideration the stereotyping and profiling that goes on about people who appear to be too different from the mainstream (including those of us in GCCA), I can also understand the disdain that this individual displayed towards me. I too feel disdain for and disappointment in fundamentalistic thinking, and I definitely don't approve of sheep-like people following charismatic, power-hungry leaders—whether in religion, science, politics, economics, entertainment, or any other area.

I am indeed very spiritually-minded, and have been since childhood, and I most certainly am a leader and teacher in a non-mainstream religious institution that has been maligned by the media and continually gossiped about locally, but I am none of that which I think this stranger presumed me to be.


We humans are a mass of inconsistencies and contradictions. It seems that we have within us the capacity to hate just as intensely and deeply as we can love, and we can be just as cowardly and compromising in our dishonesty and greed for power and materials as we can be courageous and noble in our willingness to put our lives, and egos, on the line for ethical and moral ideals.

Okakura Kakuzo, in his masterpiece, The Book of Tea, states:

“Sad as it is, we cannot conceal the fact that…we have not risen very far above the brute. Scratch the sheepskin and the wolf within us will soon show his teeth. It has been said that man at ten is an animal, at twenty a lunatic, at thirty a failure, at forty a fraud, and at fifty a criminal. Perhaps he becomes a criminal because he has never ceased to be an animal. Nothing is real to us but hunger, nothing sacred except our own desires. Shrine after shrine has crumbled before our eyes; but one altar forever is preserved, that whereon we burn incense to the supreme idol—ourselves. Our god is great, and money is his Prophet! We devastate nature in order to make sacrifice to him. We boast that we have conquered Matter and forget that it is Matter that has enslaved us. What atrocities do we not perpetrate in the name of culture and refinement!”

These observations of humankind were made at the turn of the century, moving from the nineteenth into the twentieth. Unfortunately, the author's century-old observations could have been made yesterday!

I think Mr. Kakuzo was correct in his judgment of humankind if humans do not tap into the spiritual circuitry innate within. If an individual, or group, or culture does not build ideals and values on spiritual reality (not human religious doctrine), then most humans will show their teeth in a brutish manner when scratched or squeezed, as did the individual towards me at Avalon Gardens.

Today it's even more difficult to discern the numerous atrocities perpetrated, for many of them are couched in the subtleties and sophistries of acceptable language, buzz words, phrases, and concepts that have been stolen from genuine, grassroots- and soul-level movements by those in business, “society,” politics, and even religions to appear as if they too are part of a globally-changing movement. But, from a deeper perspective, nothing much has really changed worldwide, just the language for advertising, or socializing, or politicking, or proselytizing purposes. It's all merely a gesture in order to look socially or politically acceptable, in order to keep the bucks rolling in. A militaristic and economy-driven dominant culture still dominates the world governments and their citizens' consciousness, and, as a result, the intricate planetary web of life is unraveling.


I recently read about a local, newly-formed regional citizens' group here in the Verde Valley whose purpose is “to advocate for policies and initiate efforts to achieve a sustainable and diversified economy.” I applaud their ideals, as I do all individual and group efforts to move our civilization forward—evolving from the vestiges of the brute into some semblance of actual sanity, genuineness, and responsibility for the welfare of the whole.1 The term economy is usually used in relationship to materials and finances-matter. Can an economy be truly sustainable?2 I think not when based on principles that are materialistic and lack true spiritual depth. I think an economy can only be sustainable when based upon divine administration principles, principles which are in direct contradiction to most present policies and direction of the dominant culture that is attempting to rule the planet.3

Can we, regardless of Okakura Kakuzo's assessment of the human race, age in another way than his projected ten-year increments of movement from animal to lunatic to failure to fraud, and finally to criminal? Rather than being drugged into the dominant-culture-reality where Matter enslaves us and we idolize ourselves and hold sacred only our own desires, can we mature into a totally different creature? I think we can, but I don't think it will be easy, and it will be costly, and I'm talking about more than finances here. I wonder how many individuals will in actuality be willing to pay the price of making the major personal shifts within their hearts, minds, and lives to metamorphose into a new creature, what some have called “the pearl of great price”?


We Homo sapiens, like any life form on this world, must evolve from a lower state of being to a higher one if we are to survive as a species. And I think that we are to not only evolve but ascend, which makes us more than just Homo sapiens, more than just a higher animal form; it makes us ascending sons and daughters of God, the Universal Father/Mother. We indeed have the potential to become spiritized beings in material bodies. In a discourse on reality, Jesus indicated that no individual or group of individuals could begin to understand true reality from a mind that is not spiritized by epochal revelation.4

Without spiritization, cultures, religions, governments, and any other group eventually become ineffective and temporary or corrupt, for there is no depth of perspective and recognition of values and ideals that are of eternal value. That entity (culture, religion, government, or any other group) which starts out with good, even supreme, intentions and ideals usually is distorted by those one-eyed or blind individuals (metaphorically speaking) who fail to implement and/or maintain the worthy goals of the entity. (For example, examine the original intent and ideals of most of the founding fathers of the United States of America and compare them with the actual follow-through of implementing those ideals throughout the centuries up to today. Examine the actual teachings of most founders of a religion or any human-development organization and assess how those teachings have deviated from the original.) Jesus stated: “A one-eyed person can never hope to visualize depth of perspective. Neither can single-eyed material scientists nor single-eyed spiritual mystics and allegorists correctly visualize and adequately comprehend the true depths of universe reality. All true values of creature experience are concealed in depth of recognition.”5


The true depths of universe reality reveal a spiritual and mindal overcontrol, which some spiritually progressive and more open-minded scientists perceive in the systems on this world and in the cosmos, on microscopic and macrocosmic levels. Many individuals have tapped into some level of spiritual reality in their own personal evolution. The true meaning of the terms spiritual and mindal is not necessarily related to religion or intellect, though they possibly could be depending upon usage.

Epochal revelation reveals a spirit circuit and a mind circuit that come directly from the Source and Center of all creation and are available for us human beings on this world. Some individuals and groups are very religious but not at all connected to the spirit circuitry and, as a result, think, make decisions, and act outside of divine pattern—thus the self-serving, greed- and power-based policies that implement practices destructive to human beings and the world we live upon; wars; acts of terrorism; and attempted genocides—often done in the name of some religion, God, Allah, Jesus, or Jehovah when in fact the Universal Father/Mother God has nothing at all to do with these atrocities. There are persons who are very knowledgeable in certain areas but who are not connected to the mind circuit of divine pattern and have absolutely no understanding at deeper levels of recognition, including spirit reality and truths of eternal value—thus we have so-called experts and intellectuals pontificating from a very limited, flat perspective who influence others to evaluate and assess from shallow materialism and selfishness.


Regardless of certain ideals that individuals may hold, if they do not have something of eternal value, something of spiritual reality, those ideals will not allow for experiences that bring about much-needed personal change points that would transform them into more discerning, respectful human beings, and thus becoming more effective in bringing about positive and permanent change in the world.

As I look back on the various epiphanies that brought about major shifts in my own consciousness, I realize that my life has been, and continues to be, a series of unfolding realizations. Epiphanies are seemingly ordinary, small events that can lead us into a change point, if we are open to shift. I consider a change point a major shift in consciousness and behavior. It is not just becoming aware; it is acting on the new-found awareness. It is not just “talking the walk; it is walking the talk.”

There are so many opportunities that can turn into epiphanies and then possibly into a change point—encountering persons, literature, music, art, nature, Spirit, and many other situations that cause us to stop and consider. Most people don't even stop and consider, thus what could have become an epiphany does not. And many of those who do stop to consider don't mature beyond their epiphany into the level of permanent, deep shift and action, thus no change point really happens for them. They may rap a good rap; they may act the part, but they aren't the real thing, the genuine new creature.

It's too costly for most to really move on in their consciousness and continue to expand and ascend, to move out of their comfort zones, to wake up from their dreamy illusions of unbridled liberty and self-assertion, to graduate from ego to spirit, to go through the horrors of healing and rehabilitation, to humble themselves to look at their own “hearts of darkness,” to have the courage to face their “dark night of the soul.” Those prices have to be paid in order to unfold into the pearl of great price—a balanced, peaceful, spiritized human being with the nobility, courage, and wisdom to be an effective change agent. Sound a little challenging? It is, but definitely worth the effort.

In my own experience, when trying to bring about true change that will make a lasting difference, I have to continually go against the mainstream, which at times seems to be like trying to swim up Niagara Falls, against the current and against gravity —against, what seems to be at that moment in time and space, all of the forces of reality. I have to be disciplined, mindful of reality on spiritual levels, thoughtful of the epochal revelatory truths that bring me up out of the maze of madness that appears to dominate the minds of a vast number of human beings on this world. I have to constantly choose to be encircuited with the spirit and mind circuitry of Deity. I have to choose to allow the Threefold Spirit within me to adjust my thoughts and perceptions in order to bring them to a level of spiritization. And I have to continually sacrifice my lower self in order for my higher self to emerge, my true identity as an ascending daughter who is connected to the personality circuit of the First Source and Center, the Universal Father.

Though I struggle with the dichotomy that is within me, within others, and within the world, at the same time I celebrate and dance to the music of being alive; of unfolding; of loving and committing myself; of having adventures; of discovering over and over again the beauty and mystery of symmetry and asymmetry, of familiarity and newness, of synchronicity and paradox. I wonder at the divine pattern that I see throughout all levels of reality—material, mindal, and spiritual—in spite of the imperfections. And, from my higher self, I know within every fiber of my being that all evil is but like a small spot on a vast expanse of universal goodness and that each of us ascending sons and daughters is destined to be more fully in divine pattern. When and where is up to each one of us.

2 In simple terms, sustainability encompasses values, decisions, and actions that have a proper regard for all living things and their place within the divine pattern of the First Source and Center, the Universal Father/Mother God.

4 The URANTIA Book states: “Truth is always a revelation: autorevelation when it emerges as a result of the work of the indwelling Adjuster [Spirit of God]; epochal revelation when it is presented by the function of some other celestial agency, group, or personality.” Facts by themselves do not necessarily constitute truth, and neither are conclusions drawn from a set of facts always truthful. I believe that The URANTIA Book is an epochal revelation, as well as information referred to as Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation that is transmitted from celestial personalities through Gabriel of Urantia.

Your true point of origin is God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If you have goodness in you, you have greatness in you. If you see goodness in another you see their greatness. That is how we need to view each other.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Knowing God is an ongoing, forward-moving, expanding, evolutionary, ascending process.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You don't pick babies off of trees. You have to go through labor. It is well worth it. Every civilization has to go through labor to progress materially, mindally, and spiritually.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Part of genuine community is learning how to confront in a compassionate, respectful way, and also learning how to receive confrontation in a humble, gracious way.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is the destiny of every single child of God on this planet to discover the Father—the First Source and Center—to develop a personal relationship with Him and to grow in true self-esteem.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God is the intelligent principle behind all laws.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The changes that are happening are cosmic in scope.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Epochal Revelation takes our understanding of concepts and blows our mind—expands our minds in all directions. It is constipation of the cosmic mind to be stuck in dogmatism and fundamentalism.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

I think that innate within all humans is the desire to always reach for something higher, something more divine.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The first level of courage is having a sense of loyalty to someone or some thing and being able to withstand adversity because of that fidelity.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is hearing other people's personal stories that we can develop more compassion, that we can develop a sense of connectedness with other human beings.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If you want to ascend you have to understand human nature, your own nature, and the fragility of human beings.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our first destiny is to discover the First Source and Center, our Universal Father.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

My hope for all humanity is to experience the reality of knowing that we all are in the richness of our eternal present within our destinies.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As we unite we create more and more light which dissolves the craziness of the Lucifer Rebellion.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We are becoming more Christ-like, more God-like, day-by-day, as we persevere.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

How important to recognize this spiritual truth?Û”all souls are loved equally by the Universal Creator, but not all function within God's will equally.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Love is the first thing that begins to grow when you have a genuine religious experience and start to value others and yourself.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Love is the foundation of a truly religious person.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Failure is a learning episode.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God's time lag of mercy and justice cannot be controlled by any of us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The most important thing about culture is the spiritual light.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If we allow God to purify us, we'll be composted, and then we can provide nourishment for others.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The tribulation is meant to lead to the purification of ourselves.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God is the absolute; the millions and billions of ways to reflect God is the relativity. Love is the absolute; the myriad ways to express love is the relativity.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is in our recognition of a loving divine Parent and our personal relationship with Him that we then can begin to truly find our real selves, open up to our personality circuitry.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our tiny culture here as an EcoVillage and intentional community is much more than that; it is the outworking of the Trinity’s influence in all our lives.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We get sidetracked with so many distractions that prevent us from manifesting the true desires of the heart.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Healing has to do with a shift in the mind, in the thought processes of the individual. Healing has to do with some kind of personal encounter with God the Father.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Some of our lower choices have bigger ramifications than others, but all choices, higher or lower, within God's permissive will have a ripple effect.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Physical death need not be final, but merely a graduation into a sanctuary of sacred space where correction, rehabilitation, and healing happens.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If we truly see each other as family we are the tree of life to one another.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You should ask yourself, “What can I do to become a problem solver verses a complainer?”

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Those who are true problem-solvers see the potential in the circumstances before them. If you cannot see the potential, nothing will really change.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If you are not moving forward, you are not alive. If you are not tapped into that spirit of God and you are not tapped into the realization of who you are as a child of God, you are not really alive.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

For you to truly forgive someone, you have to first experience that state of grace of God's forgiveness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

What is liberty and what is true liberty? With true liberty comes responsibility.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Have the courage to claim the authority of right and the authority of goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Spiritual maturity is the ability to really love yourself and to love your neighbor as yourself.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

True community happens when we continually correct our error so that we may love and serve others more purely.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Functions in Divine Administration, no matter what it is, means service.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In our experience of accepting God's and others' forgiveness, we are empowered to forgive those who hurt us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Being reborn again is really about being regenerated and going back to our real source and relationship with God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In the minds of many there is a division between religion and science, but with a higher, more expanded understanding of both, there is no division between them.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In that salvation from self (with a little "s"), you begin to really move into your true identity of who you are, unfolding in that unique personality circuitry that is only yours.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Functioning in Divine Administration means service to others and you can do it so much easier together.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We all well know how important it is to realize that your idea of what power is may not be God's idea, and our idea of God's timing may not really be His idea of timing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

On this fallen world, often it is only through adversity that we make quantum leaps in growth.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The emotional attitudes related to faith are a prelude to manifesting an active, dynamic Fatherly love that leads to happiness, healing, and peace of mind.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Jesus was then. Christ Michael is now.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We are multicultural and need to identify with all cultures as our planetary brothers and sisters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Jesus gave inconvenient truths.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God's time is so different from our time.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We need to grab onto the higher aspirations of wanting to be a more loving person, of being in God's perfect will moment to moment.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Though high intelligence does enhance our ability to do more good for more people, it is the essence of love that perpetuates gentleness, compassion, and forgiveness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If a person is confident in his or her sense of mission and higher purpose , do not misinterpret it as pride.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

With a cosmic perspective on life derived from epochal revelation and reflection on personal experience, our minds are lifted from our limited, lower thinking to a higher spiritized perspective.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The purification of the planet can happen through cooperation of human beings.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A very important aspect of our spiritual growth is being put in situations where we really have to learn to be thoughtful of others.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As you choose to spend time to develop your relationship with God and deepen it, your capacity for loving other human beings unselfishly will expand and deepen and broaden.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We get so caught up in our mundane lives and physical bodies—what they do to us and what we do to them—that we forget what we have around us and the great cosmic family we have here with us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We must help construct our inner selves, our higher minds and souls in order to bring about mindal and physical healing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If we do not continually drink from the life-giving "Aquarian concepts" of epochal revelation, we will wither in the immensity of the worldwide spiritual drought.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Just say, "Okay God, You win."

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A mature person doesn't pretend that they are more than who they are. A mature person will be transparent.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In our love of God we begin to move into valuing ourselves, a process of realizing what our lower selves do to keep us from expanding into our true personalities, which will result in self-esteem.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We must become cosmic in our world view, thus making it a universe view.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Truth, beauty and goodness are to awaken people to the hope and higher vision of light and life.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As gardeners of your own character, through your cooperation with the Threefold Spirit, allow your lower thoughts and emotions to be composted into something much more wonderful and life-giving.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our understanding of wealth is relative depending on where our values and standards are.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order to understand these times of the purification, we need to understand God's justice and administration on this planet.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The measure of Jesus' perfection as a human being was His choice every time to do the Father's will, even if He had other wishes and plans.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Love is an action and it's the hardest one to stay committed to.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We humans not only have innate within us the desire to love and be loved, but also a desire to find God, to experience God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Leave your worries, fears, and burdens behind and cross the rainbow bridge of God's spirit within you and step into peace, power, healing, and joy.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is your primal destiny to know the Universal Father (the First Source and Center) and then all other time-and-space destinies will fall into place.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A lot of the suffering we go through is a result of resisting the Spirit of Truth, resisting our own expansion. If we allow God in, the suffering can be transformed into something greater.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Reading and integrating Fifth Epochal Revelation and Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation helps us to become citizens of this universe.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is always better to give more time and energy to those who are willing to build towards a positive future.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A spiritually mature person can see where they are glorious and where they need to change.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Even though our physical bodies show signs of aging, we are forever young in our eternal present and in our eternal future.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Friendliness is being interested in someone else.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If you open up and begin to experience God's love in your life, you can't help but love Him in return. It becomes a circuit between you and the Father. He pours forth, and you pour back.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of the highest levels of recognition is recognizing the true religious/spiritual virtues in others.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

True spirituality is not the words that we speak, but it is how we live our lives.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It's not so significant that we suffer, for suffering is part of the human experience. It's what we do with our suffering that matters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As mortal ascending sons and daughters of the Universal Father, it is our destiny to be continually and increasingly filled with the truth, beauty and goodness of the circuitry in divine pattern.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

See yourself [men] as knights of the round table in service to ascending daughters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The sign of maturity is being able to admit failure. And every human being fails.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

All the pessimist sees is the problem. When you allow God into how you see things, then you are transformed into a positive person who sees the potential in divine pattern.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Life is a pilgrimage, a spiritual journey. On a pilgrimage, living is a journey where we are looking for spiritual epiphanies, spiritual enlightenment, growth, and healing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order for individuals and groups, cultures, and nations to move closer to a world of light and life, we all have to get out of the stagnant water of doing the same thing over and over.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order to heal we need to provide the inner environment for the ministry of the Threefold Spirit of God and the other living spiritual forces to work with us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is difficult for a person to recognize the goodness in others, to acknowledge others' accomplishments if he or she does not have some level of self-respect.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

I have discovered that beyond comfort lie great grace, divine mystery, and cosmic adventure.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Every day I feel richer—that richness of spiritual expansion into what I am destined to become as an ascending daughter of God. That's what living in Providence is.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The presence of Providence or a sense of God's hand in your life has many layers and levels of richness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Integrated into the patterns and plans of God for the whole are the choices that individuals make.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order to experience healing, reconciliation with God, and genuine community, we must be close and intimate with every facet of ourselves, including every shadow and every spot of light.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In this moment you are a being of God in His hand. Let Him squeeze the junk out of you.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As we become more aware of the goodness of God and His standards within divine pattern, at the same time we become more aware of the evil in the world that stands in stark contrast to goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

When we find it in our hearts to forgive someone who we think has wronged us, we then can more easily accept forgiveness for our own wrongdoings.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Higher courage comes from the reality of religious experience.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Peace begins with individuals, with each of us finding our place as ascending sons and daughters within the divine pattern of the Universal Father.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Like the moon we wax and wane, but we can indeed unfold into our own fullness of God's truth, beauty, and goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Having fun and enjoying life is the best way to become spiritual.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You can't grow in true self-esteem until you have pledged loyalty to the Creator of all.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Cooperation with God requires moment-to-moment decisions to think and act from our higher minds, to become spiritized.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Always in any truly great movement that brings any kind of progress to the planet, there is the presence of both men and women.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Fear disables us from truly being alive in divine pattern, from unfoldment into our personality circuitry.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Good will eventually outshine evil.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

There are many people who, through their desire to become better, have unknowingly submitted themselves to the leading of the indwelling Thought Adjuster.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The destiny of every woman is wisdom.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

To truly love another human being is to see his or her potential.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Meditation is being still before God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Isn't our highest destiny to be in the eternal moment striving to be more godlike, more open and receptive to the leadings of the Threefold Spirit within us, regardless of what we are doing?

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One way to return good for evil is to give the person an opportunity to make a higher choice by you making a higher choice.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We have to outgrow childish and selfish emotions in order to evolve into emotions that are more spiritually based, more moral, ethical, and loving.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our decisions within divine pattern add to the evolution of God the Supreme.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Wisdom requires that we determine the probabilities of manifesting the possibilities.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of our greatest challenges is to coordinate our humanness with the divine within us. Jesus did that in one life, and He said that we humans can accomplish what he did.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We can't turn our faces away from evil; we must confront it by doing good, saying "no" to it, and speaking out against it.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We humans on this planet must truly live love if there is going to be any healing that happens for us and the earth.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Love is not just a noun, it is also a verb. We have to become practitioners of love.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We know that there have been many people who have been considered failures in life and yet, from God's perspective they were some of the greatest people that walked the planet.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Drop your baggage that holds you back from liberation.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God created the universe and He's still doing it.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

By choosing to act the part—the "fake-it-till-you-make-it" process—the spiritual forces can help you to actually become the part.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The gift we've been given in The Cosmic Family volumes and The URANTIA Book allows us to come into our cosmic minds and see ourselves as universe citizens.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Every time we make a movement forward in our own psychospiritual status, we make a contribution to the progression of human culture.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Every individual and civilization has to go through labor (as in childbirth) in order to progress physically, mentally, and spiritually, becoming a higher order of being.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

My joy increases daily as I choose to try to walk moment to moment in my understanding of divine pattern and divine administration principles.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Truth and beauty are of the heart and mind; goodness is putting into action the beauty and truth of God and divine ideals.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God will give you the desires of your heartÑnot the transitory desires, but the ones your soul desires. Your true self is what will be granted to you eventually with God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God is the First Activist, and He provides the pattern for all of us humans to become pro-active.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Living in any form of community reveals both our gifts and our limitations.
