Remembering the First Father, the Universal Father

by Niánn Emerson Chase


Male Elders in My Life

For me, Father’s Day is a day to honor those men in my life who have helped me grow closer in my relationship to God the Universal Father. I honor two of the most important men in my life—my biological father, Leland Dean Chase, and my spiritual and administrative complement, Gabriel of Urantia/TaliasVan of Tora. One has passed on and is continuing his ascension on the morontia worlds, and one is here, ascending on this side of reality.

What is it that I love and respect about these men? Most important to me is that both of these men spent their entire adult lives loving and serving God. They both knew that Jesus was the Christ and Son of God who was a revelation to show us humans the way to the First Father of All. Both of these men had some balance within the Father circuitry, which is living and reflecting some of the attributes and characteristics of the Universal Father and Jesus, who we in Divine Administration refer to as Christ Michael. Both of these men have inspired and encouraged me to look to the First Father through His Son and manifest His power and light into my life.

Both of these men have seen me as someone with a special destiny and great responsibility to serve humankind on this planet; thus, both of these men have demanded the highest from me in my maturation and ascension process—my father when I was a child and young woman under his protection and responsibility; Gabriel of Urantia/TaliasVan of Tora when I came under his protection and responsibility as his complement. Both of these men have been extremely gentle with me, as well as stern and even righteously angry. (Gabriel/TaliasVan is my former husband and father of three of my children. We continue to be spiritual complements as pastors and administrators for Global Community Communications Alliance.)

Though I respect and admire both of these men, neither one has ever been a “god” to me. However, they each have been my Elder—my father in my young tender years and Gabriel of Urantia/TaliasVan of Tora for these many years.

I realize now that neither one of these men have ever wanted to “conquer me” or “inhabit me” or “possess me” or “control me”. There have been times in the past, when in my immaturity and lower mind of lesser understanding that I have felt and thought that these strong men were trying to take me over. But each time I experienced this anger or resentment or fear, I later experienced gratitude, for when I moved out of my “fight-or-flight mode” into my more rational and realizing mode, I recognized that both of these men have always wanted to protect me, to lead me, to guide me, to inspire me, . . . and to rightfully confront me. They have given me gentle love and support as well as strong and stern admonishment.

I will always remember (with gratitude now but resentment then) my father’s extreme strictness with me. He often became very angry with me when I showed selfishness and pride. He confronted me, giving me stern talks about my responsibility to grow into a humble and righteous woman, always thinking and acting for the good of others. He refused to cater to my ego, my clamoring lower self. As a teenager I felt that he was too demanding of me, that he expected more out of me than out of my sisters and brother. I often was angry and resentful of him. Sometimes I even thought I hated him, momentarily.

When I moved away and attended university, I almost immediately realized that my father was in attunement with the Spirit of God enough to realize that he felt the weight of responsibility for being a father and that he believed that I had a destiny that held much more responsibility than even my siblings.

I will always remember with gratitude Gabriel of Urantia’s/TaliasVan of Tora’s continuous confrontations when I am not walking in my higher spirit-led self. I realize that he has the gift of vision, of discerning the potential of others. That ability to see into us, to see our potential for greatness as well as our potential for smallness can be a very scary thing.

————

Beginning in my teen years, I would sometimes while sleeping dream or while meditating have a vision of a strong male figure who had a penetrating gaze that would pierce me when he looked upon me. This male figure presented himself in different ways and in various personas, but he always had the same effect upon me. I had mixed feelings about this person in my dreams and visions. I loved and respected him and wanted him in my life, and yet at the same time I felt angry and fearful. I was intrigued by his power and yet fearful of it. I knew that when he looked upon me, he saw me, all of me—my heart of darkness as well as my heart of light and love. I felt terribly uncomfortable as well as hopeful with the realization that this person was awfully awesome.

I believe that this person “from the other side” that I encountered over the years was the finaliter Paladin, preparing me for my destiny in Divine Administration with my spiritual complement Gabriel of Urantia/TaliasVan of Tora. I think that my father, Leland Chase, also was unknowingly preparing me for my destiny within the Mandate of the Bright and Morning Star. My father did not embrace The URANTIA Book, and he could be quite fundamentalistic in his thinking and closed to expanded truth, but he knew at some level in his heart and mind that he needed to have high standards for me.

I can say that God has blessed me in this life with three very real male Elders—for my childhood and youth, my biological father, and for my adult years, especially beginning in my late 30s, my spiritual complement Gabriel of Urantia/TaliasVan of Tora, and my spirit grandfather Paladin. They all have, at varying degrees, what we in Divine Administration call Father circuitry—with a capital “F” representing the First Father of All, the Universal Father of Paradise, God.

Father Circuitry

What does Father circuitry look like here on Urantia (Earth)? First and foremost, it is about doing everything you can to aid others to meet their God-given destiny. Note I said “God-given,” not “self-given” or “society-given.”

The shared destiny of every human being on this world is to know who our First Father is, the First Source and Center, God, Jehovah, Allah, and so on. Here are some names that He is known by on higher worlds: The Gift of Life, the Father of Fathers, The Divine Controller, The Infinite Upholder, The Universal Center, The All-powerful One, The Paradise Father, The Father of Lights, The First Creative Source and Divine Center. 

Papers 1 through 5 (composed of approximately 51 pages) in The URANTIA Book focus exclusively on God the Father. The titles of these papers are: 1. “The Universal Father,” 2. “The Nature of God,” 3. “The Attributes of God,” 4. “God’s Relation to the Universe,” and 5. “God’s Relation to the Individual.” Note that these papers end with the focus of God’s relation to the individual.

Many evolutionary religions include the concept of the spirit of the divine within each of us. The URANTIA Book calls that spirit of God, that Fragment of the Father, the Thought Adjuster and sometimes the Mystery Monitor. Within our individual unique personality circuitry, which comes from the First Father, is His Fragment that works within our minds.

Interestingly, there are also five papers (composed of approximately 58 pages) in The URANTIA Book devoted exclusively to the Thought Adjusters. In one of those papers it is stated: “the devotion of the Adjuster to the individual is touchingly sublime, divinely Fatherlike.” What is Fatherlike devotion? What does Fatherlike love look like?

When we view the human history of this planet called Urantia, we can see how certain groups of humans have evolved and progressed. We can see the rise and fall of many civilizations—some great and some not so great. But what dominates the rise and fall of civilizations is the pattern of conquering through force and violence. Over and over armies of fierce warrior-like men march into a land and take control. It continues to happen today, and over and over armies, and governments, and religions do it in the name of “right”, in the name of “progress”, in the name of “God”. 

The personal histories of humans are also often stories of some other individual attempting to dominate another. How many women and children have been conquered through psychological and physical brutality by a man? How many hearts and minds of women and children have been taken over by a man through force? 

Regardless of the rhetoric used in propaganda—which includes the patriotic talk of government leaders, the God talk of religious leaders, or the sweet talk of a boyfriend or husband—if men are not walking in Father circuitry they are not reflecting Fatherlike love or Fatherlike leadership.

I look at the administration of policies and procedures of European and American governments throughout the past centuries in Asia, in Africa, in the Americas, and I grieve. I see how those same policies are being implemented today, just in different language and dress, and I experience frustration and at times rage. 

I see very little divinely-led administration in spite of God language being thrown around. I see Lucifer administration in spite of Jesus language being thrown around. I see Christianity and Judaism and Islam and Hinduism and materialism, but I do not see as much Godliness and First Fatherliness as should be seen.

Frankly, I am so tired of how words that were once beautiful and communicated truth, beauty, and goodness are now used to market a government’s or a religion’s or a corporation’s or an individual’s agenda of conquering another nation, another group of people, or another individual for profit, for power and control. Regardless of language and the hype, it is not in divine pattern; it is not of God, and it is not Jesusonian.

Being Jesusonian

Jesus’ mission was to always point to the First Father, and through Jesus’ life and teachings that is what he did. The URANTIA Book states that all that is within the Universal Father’s divine pattern is love-motivated. Everything within divine administration policies and procedures is love-motivated—to bring about the ascension of individuals and the true progress of cultures and societies into the divine pattern of light and life. The only conquering and dominating that should be done is by each individual allowing the love and mercy of God to control our thoughts and actions.

The entire fourth section of The URANTIA Book is entitled “The Life and Teachings of Jesus” and is composed of 76 papers with approximately 754 pages. In our study of those papers we see how Jesus, the only perfected human being to ever live on this world, made the highest choices in each situation, being totally in agreement with his Fragment of the Father, reflecting divine pattern in every aspect of his life. His motives were pure, love-motivated. 

The word love has been cheapened, and most humans do not understand that there are varying levels of love—love expressed on the different psychic circles, from various degrees of ascension and understanding of cosmic and spiritual realities. Human love can be very selfish and possessive; divine love is something totally different. 

In Paper 140, Section 5 of The URANTIA Book we are gifted with Jesus’ teaching on fatherly and brotherly love. He asked His apostles to ascend from brotherly to fatherly love, and I believe that is what Christ Michael is asking all of us aligned in Global Community Communications Alliance (Divine Administration) to do. Jesus taught that there are certain emotional attitudes, certain faith attitudes that are related with fatherly love. There are certain supreme reactions in fatherly love. I am not getting into what those faith attitudes and supreme reactions of fatherly love are in this particular teaching, but I suggest you prayerfully read through and reflect upon section previously referred to in The URANTIA Book.

In my study of the Jesus papers (that comprise the last part of The URANTIA Book), I have come to realize that Jesus walked in the perfect balance that a human being can on this world of chaos and confusion. He was able to be balanced within what Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation (found in The Cosmic Family volumes) calls the Father circuitry, the Mother circuitry, and the Son circuitry, all connected to the three Paradise deities—the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, and the Infinite Spirit. (I am not going to get into the intricacies of this threefold circuitry in this particular teaching.) 

Father Circuitry Again

What would Father circuitry look like in human men today? As I have indicated before, it has nothing to do with what we see in most men in positions of worldly power, regardless of their fancy talk. Father circuitry means having the discernment to know when someone needs words of praise and encouragement and when they need admonishment and confrontation. It means knowing when to be gentle and when to be stern. It means knowing when to be big and when to be small.

For more than thirty years I have observed with great interest various people’s reactions and responses to this Deo (Godly) power. Those who react are scared of this Father circuitry; they resent it, and some even hate it. Those who respond may be intimidated but are also open and interested in reaching for higher reality, wanting to see where they need to change to become better human beings. 

Jesus said: “My Father looks into the hearts of individuals and judges them by their inner longings and their sincere intentions.” (The URANTIA Book, Paper 140, Section 3) For those of us who might want to keep some things within us hidden, that is scary. Remember my previous description of my impressions of Paladin over the years before I met Gabriel of Urantia? Though I welcomed Paladin into my spiritual experiences, I at times feared that deep, penetrating look into my innermost self.

In both the finaliter Paladin’s and the human Gabriel’s fatherly love, they have always looked at me with the eyes of discernment. In my initial encounters with both of these Father-circuited Elders—one spirit and one human—they looked into my heart and discerned my inner longings and sincere intentions, regardless of my talk, my dress, my job, how much money I had, where I lived, who I hung out with, and so on. In my lower self I was very intimidated and wanted to accuse them as imposing themselves upon my inner landscape and running too much male energy, of being too forceful, etc. etc. (If it is too much trouble to be awakened and shaken, we humans can concoct all kinds of accusations against those saints God sends to us.)

The much-revered Sufi poet Hafiz was one of those saints sent by the Universal Father to bless truth-seekers—throughout the centuries into these contemporary times—with his realistic and humorous realizations of what it is like for us humans to experience a personal relationship with God the Beloved. It is so easy to appreciate and receive the sweet talk and gentleness of others, which is very much a reflection of the love of God, and Hafiz wrote many poems of that aspect of God’s great love. However, Hafiz also knew that fatherlike love also requires the other side of the coin, the awakening part, which is more uncomfortable and even at times painful.

Tired of Speaking Sweetly

Love wants to reach out and manhandle us,

Break all our teacup talk of God.

If you had the courage and

Could give the Beloved His choice, some nights,

He would just drag you around the room

By your hair,

Ripping from your grip all those toys in the world

That bring you no joy.

Love sometimes gets tired of speaking sweetly

And wants to rip to shreds

All your erroneous notions of truth

That make you fight within yourself, dear one,

And with others,

Causing the world to weep

On too many fine days.

God wants to manhandle us,

Lock us inside of a tiny room with Himself

And practice His dropkick.

The Beloved sometimes wants

To do us a great favor:

Hold us upside down

And shake all the nonsense out.

But when we hear

He is in such a “playful drunken mood”

Most everyone I know

Quickly packs their bags and hightails it

Out of town.

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

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

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

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

-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

God is a love-saturated Person, and the foundation of all of His/Her laws and principles are based on love. We humans are at an embryonic state of understanding the true nature of love.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Friendliness is being interested in someone else.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your message should have a flavor of universalism to it in order to appeal to many different types of individuals.

-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

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

-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

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

Your true point of origin is God.

-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

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

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

-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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

-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

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

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

The changes that are happening are cosmic in scope.

-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

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

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

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

-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

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

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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In our cooperation with the Threefold Spirit of God, we can have quantum leaps of growth and healing in our adversity rather than being broken by it.

-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

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

-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

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

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

It is in those moments of expressing genuine love and concern for another human being that I have experienced the most happiness and fulfillment.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

God's time is so different from our time.

-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

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

-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

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

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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Living at higher levels of super-consciousness is living in the eternal moment, fully present with those around you.

-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

Let us not forget the soul within each of our human brothers and sisters.

-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

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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

-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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Drop your baggage that holds you back from liberation.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We each are a book unfolding, and in writing our own history or herstory, some of us are a thicker book than others because of past repersonalizations, thus having more chapters to our book of life.

-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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Just say, "Okay God, You win."

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

Degrees of destiny fall into place when we come to know our source, that we are from the Paradise Trinity.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God is the intelligent principle behind all laws.

-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

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

-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

Failure is a learning episode.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of the destinies of every person is to somehow experience Providence in their lives.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Meditation is being still before God.

-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

Good will eventually outshine evil.

-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

Classes should be a union-of-souls experience where you listen and fall in love with your brothers and sisters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The most important thing about culture is the spiritual light.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your destiny is to find yourself in God and ascend into your personality.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Language continually changes with the consciousness of those who use it. When our minds become more expanded, our language becomes more expanded and cosmic.

-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

Jesus was then. Christ Michael is now.

-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

The destiny of this world, the world of the beloved Christ Jesus the Creator Son of Nebadon, is to move into light and life through the brother- and sisterhood of humankind.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Welcome those times in your life when your comfort zones are challenged, as this will help your soul to grow.

-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

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

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

Jesus didn't just give warm fuzzy love, some of it was quite strong for those who needed it. He knew how to read the soul.

-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

You cannot really love God, receive His love, and grow and expand in that divine love without simultaneously loving other persons.

-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

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

From an eternal perspective evil is not real; love is real and of eternal value.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Curiosity should elicit a desire in the individual to find truth, beauty and goodness in life.

-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
