Hi Sandy. My friend commented that the Urantia Book frame of thought puts faith at the forefront of the human experience, as the great driver/lure. The yogic viewpoint might work for a purely earth-bound existence, but faith involves very subtle and truly wise (in-the-whole) decisions, which might warrant indulgences for very wise and subtle human reasons, obviously our God-fragments know all, the entirety. My other friend commented that this protocol might have a bigger role for remediation and rehabilitation of individuals, and that the Urantia Book assumes psychological health. I wonder how strict Jesus was? For one He had extensive and complicated duties. But two, He had complete and utter faith in His Father, and an experienced Thought Adjuster to navigate the subtleties of situations. I also wonder how physical (and other) discipline might have factored in to those who achieved fusion whilst on the earth? Interesting questions. Love Dylan.
