“Dedicate your life to the great work of showing how the critical material mind of man can triumph over the inertia of intellectual doubting when faced by the demonstration of the manifestation of living truth as it operates in the experience of spirit-born men an women who yield the fruits of the spirit in their lives, and who love one another, even as I have loved you.” [UB Paper 18, Section 2]
Teacher Uteah: “Indeed, man’s material mind is critical by nature, as it believes what it sees but doubts what is not part yet of its experience. The above recommendation was Jesus’ intimate farewell admonition to ‘doubting’ Thomas. Thomas did, at times, waver in his faith, as he filtered his beliefs through the sieve of his imperfect intellectual understanding and sense of discernment. However, once they passed that test, he never failed to take bold action.
“There is nothing wrong with closely examining any incoming data. It is advisable to do so, as each new ‘belief’ you embrace should add to the cohesiveness of your framework of belief. At times, a new understanding will prompt you to toss aside an obsolete one—trading them up.
“Those who are spirit-born have gained access to the invisible world of spiritual realities. As they garner valuable insights, they start living their lives, keeping eternal and higher objectives in mind and heart. The attainment of the absolute values they pursue cannot but mightily impact their character. Such a beautiful makeover becomes a manifestation of ‘living truth.’
“Indeed, only ‘living’ truth is productive. A mere intellectual agreement does not suffice to better the world. Actions matter over everything else. By being ‘truth-led’ in your actions, it becomes an agent of inner change—a change manifested through the authentic way you conduct your life. You then become a ‘living proof’ of the process of ‘yielding’ the fruits of the spirit. You start emitting power of attraction, as others come to desire what you have. Who would not wish to taste the peace that passes all understanding paired with the reassurance that their life is in the divine right order?”
