Did you ever wish that a benevolent representative from an advanced, far distant civilization of
extraterrestrial human beings would send us a message of enlightenment and hope? Did you ever wish
that a similar message would arrive from "beyond the grave"? Well, they have and it's here. Sixteen
papers of The Urantia Book (8% of the book) were written by ex-mortals from other planets (the rest were
written by spiritual beings who never have been human, i.e., angels, etc.). I have sorted through these
16 papers and have included below some of their inspirational messages directed straight to us.
From UB paper 22.
You mortals who read this message may yourselves ascend to Paradise, attain the Trinity embrace, and
in remote future ages be attached to the service of the Ancients of Days in one of the seven
superuniverses, and sometime be assigned to enlarge the revelation of truth to some evolving inhabited
planet, even as I am now functioning on Urantia.
From UB paper 32.
The goal of eternity is ahead! The adventure of divinity attainment lies before you! The race for
perfection is on! whosoever will may enter, and certain victory will crown the efforts of every human being
who will run the race of faith and trust, depending every step of the way on the leading of the indwelling
Adjuster and on the guidance of that good spirit of the Universe Son, which so freely has been poured
out upon all flesh.
From UB paper 40.
What dignity of destiny and glory of attainment await every one of you! Do you fully appreciate what has
been done for you? Do you comprehend the grandeur of the heights of eternal achievement which are
spread out before you?—even you who now trudge on in the lowly path of life through your so-called
"valley of tears"?
