Your Guardian Angel
Angels have brought an element to our work that we never expected to enjoy. Most of what we know about angels is floating about in our gratitude. We are not experts, so we’re going to share “just the facts,” facts we believe your guardian angel will approve.
The Mighty Seraphim are the order of angels tasked with being our personal guardians. The more you learn about them, the more you’ll wonder how we humans deserve such a companion.
Angels are, and we quote, “Definite and discrete beings; they are of spirit nature and origin…they intellectually understand the mode of mortal life, and they share all of man’s non-sensuous emotions and sentiments.”
“They are fully cognizant of your moral struggles and spiritual difficulties. They love human beings, and only good can result from your efforts to understand and to love them.” There’s more, Angels,“…greatly appreciate and enjoy your (human) efforts in music, art and real humor.”
I don’t know about you, but I never heard anything so straight forward about angels from any religious dogma. The religions mostly turn it into a mystery, as if life is not mysterious enough already: a mystery, incidentally, only the priests can possibly interpret. This book we’re quoting tells us our angels like music, and without my conscious awareness of it, it’s likely this angel and I have shared a laugh or two.
Talk about demystifying a topic.
Quoting our source further: “Angels are superior to you in spiritual status, but they are not your judges or accusers. No matter what your faults…(they) bring no accusation against you.”
Damn! People! Do you know how big that is? The ability to speak to, to seek, a higher power, without having to attend to guilt and other issues that block faith, hope and understanding opens a door to finding the help one needs. That quote, by itself, would have convinced us to talk to these guys. Big spirits that don’t judge are pure gold in our work, as you may imagine.
But it was the third quote that really hit us between the eyes.
“You do well to love them, but you should not adore them; angels are not objects of worship.” Apparently, angels, like us, are “fellow servants together.” We, angels and us, in other words, are doing this whole Earth thing together.
Worship is great, but dancing with Deity takes time and energy that can be used to advance the person in other ways: such as finding his/her own deity within or finding the answers needed to make art of her life. We can advance further on the path without excessive worship, seeking a balance.
These transparent explanations are refreshing to us, and they came through the first author we trusted to tell us about angels, Mr. Timothy Wylie. He introduced us to the Urantia Book, the source of our quotes, as reliable information on creation, angels, Jesus and the cosmos; and we agree.
In the early 20th century, this huge book of 196 papers, “written” by a variety of celestials and angels, and “received” by an anonymous and indifferent man as he slept, went through serious editing by 70 well-chosen editors. The Urantia Book took around 30 years to publish. The organization that facilitates the book continues quietly to teach it and preserve its content, without political or religious editing.
The Bible, like the Koran, took hundreds of years to put together, and it’s been “edited” by several governments and countless religions. The Urantia Book was put together by man and spirit over 30 years. The book has remained the same ever since it was published. If we believe the Bible, it seems reasonable to check out the Urantia Book.
These “facts” around angels, and our guardian angel, helped us immensely; clear concise information about a powerful being that accompanies each and every one of us is rare indeed. Need I say more?
