THE SPIRIT OF BESTOWAL
THE INFINITE SPIRIT
VUGRINCIC, M.D., Ph.D.
In the previous Interim-Papers we have reviewed the meanings of the TRUE WORSHIP of the Paradise Universal Father, the PRAYER SUPPLICATIONS to the realms of the Paradise Eternal Son and His Spirit of Truth, and qualified PRAYER REALIZATIONS by the spirit agencies of the Holy Spirit, the Mind of the Paradise Conjoint Actor.
The following Interim-Paper is devoted to further enlightenment about the true nature of God.
THE URANTIA BOOK—PAPER 9
9:3 THE UNIVERSAL
9:3.1 The Isle of Paradise is the source and substance of physical gravity; and that should be sufficient to inform you that gravity is one of the most real and eternally dependable things in the whole physical universe of universes. Gravity cannot be modified or annulled except by the forces and energies conjointly sponsored by the Father and the Son, which have been intrusted to, and are functionally associated with, the person of the Third Source and Center.
9:3.2 The Infinite Spirit possesses a unique and amazing power— antigravity. This power is not functionally (observably) present in either the Father or the Son. This ability to withstand the pull of material gravity, inherent in the Third Source, is revealed in the personal reactions of the Conjoint Actor to certain phases of universe relationships. And this unique attribute is transmissible to certain of the higher personalities of the Infinite Spirit.
9:3.3 Antigravity can annul gravity within a local frame; it does so by the exercise of equal force presence. It operates only with reference to material gravity, and it is not the action of mind. The gravity-resistant phenomenon of a gyroscope is a fair illustration of the effect of antigravity but of no value to illustrate the cause of antigravity.
9:3.4 Still further does the Conjoint Actor display powers which can transcend force and neutralize energy. Such powers operate by slowing down energy to the point of materialization and by other techniques unknown to you.
9:3.5 The Conjoint Creator is not energy nor the source of energy nor the destiny of energy; he is the manipulator of energy. The Conjoint Creator is action—motion, change, modification, co-ordination, stabilization, and equilibrium. The energies subject to the direct or indirect control of Paradise are by nature responsive to the acts of the Third Source and Center and his manifold agencies.
9:3.6 The universe of universes is permeated by the power-control creatures of the Third Source and Center: physical controllers, power directors, power centers, and other representatives of the God of Action who have to do with the regulation and stabilization of physical energies. These unique creatures of physical function all possess varying attributes of power control, such as antigravity, which they utilize in their efforts to establish the physical equilibrium of the matter and energies of the grand universe.
9:3.7 All these material
activities of the God of Action appear to relate his function to the Isle of
