Renderings of Realizations

by Niánn Emerson Chase


     It has always impressed me, in my study of the life of Jesus (as found in The URANTIA Book), that he often spent time in nature, away from the energies of busy towns and bustling people. In a family of several children, as the eldest son—who (at the age of 14) took the place of a father figure when their father Joseph died in a work-related accident—Jesus often took his younger siblings out on walks in the surrounding hills, pointing out various things they came across, teaching the children not only about the scientific facts of the natural world but also bringing in practical, moral, and spiritual lessons that related to what they observed in nature.
     Throughout his adulthood Jesus continued taking respite from the pressing things of life by spending large amounts of time in the natural world. He spent many hours in the hills and mountains praying, reflecting, meditating, and communing with the Universal Father, with even two separate periods of being completely alone in the wilderness—one for six weeks and another encompassing forty days.
     When Jesus became more active in his public career as a spiritual teacher, he and his close associates spent more time outdoors than inside—for relaxation and recreation, for work and meetings, for speaking before large groups of people, and even living outdoors for weeks at a time. He knew that by spending quality time in nature, we humans could better learn the value of meditation and the power of intelligent reflection.

     In her book The Sun Is A Compass, wildlife biologist Caroline Van Hemert describes a 4,000-mile “human-powered” journey that she and her husband took in 2012 into the Pacific Northwest wild lands—starting from Bellingham in northern Washington and ending in Kotzebue, Alaska, far above the Arctic Circle. In those months of being constantly in the natural world, away from human-created societies and environments, Dr. Van Hemert gained a broader and more attuned perspective of life, experiencing a gamut of emotions and situations as she and her husband blissed out in the majestic wonder of rose-tinted dawns, gold-laced dusks, and other peace-bringing incidences, and, paradoxically, at other times struggling in their fear and desperation to simply stay alive in a harsh and unforgiving environment.
     In a recent article about one episode on this trip,[1] Dr. Van Hemert describes how closely observing a herd of hundreds of migrating caribou for a couple of days taught her some very important life lessons, which we need in these times of the Coronapocalypse.[2] We humans are very much like our animal counterparts in our needs and tendencies. Like the caribou, we are individuals by ourselves or with small nuclear-family units for whom we try to provide and protect, and we also have an innate need to belong with a herd in order to survive all of life’s challenges.
     In her observations of the behavior of the animals in their mass migration, Dr. Van Hemert saw at times what appeared to be chaos and confusion as they encountered various challenges that blocked their rhythmic and orderly travel. However, solutions were found, often by one or two caribou, who would take the lead and the herd followed. It was as if “behind the chaos was a collective need to move” forward and so solutions naturally emerged. It was as if “each animal’s actions were driven by something larger than itself.” She never saw any shoving or pushing aside in those very crowded conditions, even in times of “frantic motion.” “It was as though a safety bubble hovered around each animal with an unspoken, absolutist rule shared among the herd: Do not harm thy neighbor.” Though at times the caribou’s movements might not have seemed synchronous, Dr. Van Hemert “could see how they were intimately and essentially connected.”
     If only more of us humans would allow that innate knowing of certain universal laws of survival within divine pattern to come forth in us and learn to flow in those rhythms, then we too would deeply know “like the caribou, that community is everything.”

------

     I was a nature child, who spent more time outdoors than indoors, roaming the vast desert lands around my home in Arizona, and through osmosis I began to “know” some of the Creator’s laws found in the natural world. In a way, it was as if Jesus (through the Spirit of Truth) was by my side, teaching me about divine pattern through nature’s lessons. And, like all peoples of all generations who try to live in harmony with the laws and lessons of the earthly ecosystems, I sensed the essence of the Universe Mother Spirit within Mother Earth (Gaia).[3]
     I too have experienced the easy-going aspects of nature as well as the more brutal parts, though to a much less extent than Dr. Van Hemert (on her 4,000 mile adventure into the wilderness) or those who are suffering great loss from the current pandemic and its domino effects on the economic, medical, educational, and other social systems of society. Nor have I yet been impacted by great personal loss from the effects of global weirding,[4] which includes worldwide extreme-weather events that result in increased crop-killing droughts, copious snow and rain followed by ravaging floods, destructive winds (including more-than-normal tornados and hurricanes), or raging fires due to extreme heat and drought-like conditions. Neither have I personally suffered from debilitating emotional and mental illness, which in these times of anxiety is increasing.
     However, deep within my being I grieve over the terrible loss Gaia (Earth) is experiencing worldwide, including diminishing and disappearing animals and plants (due to harmful human encroachment of habitats), decreasing clean water, air, and soil (due to human-behavior-caused toxicity), and entire eco-systems collapsing (due to human-generated acceleration of global weirding).
     In the southwest bioregion where I live, I feel great sadness as I observe the near disappearance of Gila monsters, tarantulas, and horned toads, and I see much less of jack rabbits, the various raptors, varieties of water fowl, several species of songbirds, butterflies, bees, and so on than in the past decades.
     My heart literally beats erratically to the rhythm of my awareness of the unraveling web of life on earth and of the human instigation of this tragedy. My lungs strenuously breathe in and out the tainted air particles caused by human selfishness and greed. And at the same time, my heart and lungs rejoice in all that is good and true and beautiful on this world, and there is much of that too. So I and my body reflect the paradox of joy and sorrow, but more joy, and an underpinning of a “peace that passes all understanding,” for I know that in spite of the coronapocalypse and global-warming calamities that threaten so many lives, a new world will emerge in the near future. 

------

     These current times of great upheaval have been spoken of and foretold for hundreds of years, and today they are referred to (by those with a more philosophical and positive outlook) as the Great Turning or Great Transition, both terms indicating a great change from one reality to another. Many with a scientific leaning refer to these times as the Anthropocene—“anthro” meaning man and “cene” meaning new—which is a term defining “Earth’s most recent geologic time period as being human-influenced, based on global evidence that atmospheric, geologic, hydrologic, biospheric, and other earth system processes are now altered by humans,”[5] and not in a good way. Elizabeth Kolbert explains these times in her 2015 Pulitzer-Prize-winning book The Sixth Extinction: An Unnatural History.
     I mention just a few terms that fit the nature and description of the times we are living in, but there are many others. And though I have focused more on the degradation of the natural world and extreme climate change due to centuries’ worth of culminating human choices, those choices—based on selfish and materialistic values, outside of the Creator’s divine pattern—have also caused the degradation of societal systems. Thus we have debilitating poverty, burgeoning social inequities, soul-destroying immorality, expanding mental illnesses, dismantling of humanitarian services, and unbridled, peace-threatening militarism.
     However, in spite of this dire situation, there is always the possibility for this era of the Great Turning or Great Transition to transform our violated earth and troubled societies into regenerated ecosystems and redeemed cultures, actually becoming a new, or renewed, world. I (and I am sure many others) have carried within us a knowing of a beautiful reality here on earth, coexisting with the ugliness and devastation, and also having an assurance of a better future that is based on harmonious existence with God, the Creator of everything. After all, good does eventually completely overcome and transform evil.
     However, we humans must take part in this Great Turning. As is pointed out in The URANTIA Book, “The ideas, motives, and longings of a lifetime are openly revealed in a crisis.”[6] The afflictions we suffer now can awaken us to the root of the problems troubling us and our world. We are forced to reflect deeply on the circumstances we are in and reassess our own values, choices, and behavior. As we become aware of the causes of the dismantling of that which is good, life-giving, and health-sustaining—within ourselves as well is in our social systems—then we can take action to make the changes necessary to heal ourselves and our earth.
     As we recognize our fragility and mortality, realizing that there is something much larger than “us,” we begin to walk the path, the Tao, that leads to the Source of all life, all truth, all beauty, and all goodness—the Universal Creator Father/Mother. Love and goodness are of eternal value; the hateful virus of evil, in all its forms, is temporary and will eventually dissipate; its evil contagion will fade away. However, “love is truly contagious and eternally creative.”[7]

------

     On a lighter ending note: In “A Recipe for Difficult Times: Anxiety Soup,”[8] Pulitzer-Prize-winner writer and poet Alice Walker gives three essential ingredients needed for “this period of emotional, psychological, ideological, and financial instability.” Her soup for these difficult times is meant to help us manage our anxiety, to lessen it, to put it into proper perspective.
     “First of all, Anxiety Soup keeps growing and expanding; it is eclectic, it is self-choosing, and it is already within your reach. The main thing it assumes is that you are coming to it in your right mind: that you’ve put the liquor bottle back on the shelf, said no to drugs of all kinds, and made the manly or womanly decision not to pick fights. In fact, it assumes you consider yourself free. That being so, you are ready for ingredient number one.”
     Ingredient number one is dance, and ingredient number two is sitting meditation. Ingredient number three is actual soup that “you make yourself from scratch” with a variety of vegetables and anything else healthy you might have on hand. “Soup, no matter what’s in it, always tastes good. This is part of soup’s magic; you can only go wrong if you have no sense of taste whatsoever.”
     As we dance, meditate, and cook through these tough times, taking the higher way of truth and goodness, as Alice Walker says, “May we continue to be a hardy race that outlives our tormentors.” And may we no longer be tormentors ourselves.

[2] “Coronapocalypse” became almost overnight a meme used in social and other media in reference to these times of the Covid-19 pandemic and the domino effect it is having in other areas of our lives.

[3] According to Greek mythology, “Gaia” was the ancestral mother of all life, the primal Mother Earth goddess. In more recent times, Gaia is also used as a synonym for Earth.

[4] “Global weirding” is a term that identifies what happens as global temperatures rise and the climate changes. In these times, the acceleration of the natural cycle of climate change, which usually happens over thousands of years, has been accelerated at an alarming rate due to the human-caused greenhouse blanket around our planet, which holds in heat. This is blamed on the huge amount of carbon released by human activity, especially through machinery and industry.

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

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

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

-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

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

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

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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It takes courage to effect conquest of our lower nature and transcend our lower self.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Being realistically optimistic is seeing the potentiality of God's will being manifested within every circumstance and person.

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

-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

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

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

-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

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

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

-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

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

As we become more civilized, we become more loving.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your true point of origin is God.

-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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is that divine nature within us that can empower us to rise to the heights of love that is reflective of God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Failure is a learning episode.

-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

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

-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

Every day can be our Pentecost, the renewal of God's spirit within us restoring us to our fullness in being able to love more perfectly and forgive more readily.

-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

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

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

-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

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

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The changes that are happening are cosmic in scope.

-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

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 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

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

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

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

-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

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

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our role is to stay in our superconscious minds, to make decisions from our higher selves.

-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 make our own prisons within our minds.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Jesus was then. Christ Michael is now.

-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

Higher courage comes from the reality of religious experience.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Jesus gave inconvenient truths.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Drop your baggage that holds you back from liberation.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God's time is so different from our time.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

-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

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

-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

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

Good will eventually outshine evil.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of the destinies of individuals is to see the hand of Providence in their lives.

-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

When you have a sense of purpose, you forget the clamoring of yourself.

-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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

When aligned with divine pattern within perfect personality pattern, you don't have confusion and find your true self.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Meditation is being still before God.

-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

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

-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

A truly wealthy person fills their being with the spirit of 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

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

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

-Niánn Emerson Chase

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

-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

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

Friendliness is being interested in someone else.

-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

The purification of the planet can happen through cooperation 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

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