“All things are sacred in the lives of those who are spirit led; that is, subordinated to the truth, ennobled by love, dominated by mercy, and restrained by fairness—justice. The spirit which my Father and I shall send into the world is not only the Spirit of Truth but also the spirit of idealistic beauty.” [UB Paper 155, Section 5]
Thought Adjuster: “The above quote got your attention, as it beautifully expands on the nature of the “Spirit of Truth”, depicting it as “the spirit of idealistic beauty.” Indeed, Truth is not absolute whenever it is stripped of love and beauty. It loses its luster and universal appeal.
“The pursuit of high ideals is the bread and butter of soul growth. Ponder this for a moment. How you spend the precious time allotted to you for the initial phase of your eternal destiny is very consequential, as it determines whether your character will come to yield some of the juicy fruits of Spirit.
“The standard by which you should assess the eternal value of your decisions is: Is it true? Is it beautiful? Is it loving? Truth devoid of love is ugly and cruel; Beauty devoid of goodness and authenticity is shallow and only skin-deep. You get the picture. As for everything else in your life, it is a balancing act that requires you to be flexible and resourceful and continuously work at developing these mutually enhancing facets of your spiritual life.
“Truth, Beauty, and Goodness are a package deal. They are the ultimate blend of spiritual seasonings that make your life experience tasty and attractive to others. They are indeed magnetic forces of attraction. This is the reason why your Heavenly Father exerts such an irresistible pull from His Residence in Paradise and wholeheartedly invites you to grow to fully embody these three core values. Can you fathom what a bright future He has in store for you?”
