A Piece Of The Creator (Update: The Vid)

Dr. Carlos Gonzales, Yaqui Mexican medicine man “family doctor”, invoking the Creator at the Tuscon memorial service

While many positive comments from both sides of the political spectrum have been proffered concerning President Obama‘s speech yesterday at the memorial service for the six innocents that were murdered last Saturday in Tuscon, AZ, little attention has been given to the Yaqui Indian Professor who offered the opening prayer and invocation, Dr. Carlos Gonzales.

I found his presentation very moving. And while my initial attempts to find a transcript of his words have not met with success, I did write down this one line after he spoke it, as it reflected a core teaching in The Urantia Book:

“Each of us has a piece of the creator.”

That would be the holographic fragment of the Infinite One that indwells us during this short life in the flesh, that “true light that lights everyone who comes into the world.” The sole mission of this Mystery Monitor or Adjuster is to co-evolve with each mortal personality a joint vehicle called the soul, preparatory to a shared life of eternal adventure and discovery.

While it is fitting to mourn those who have so tragically passed, know they go to prepare for us a better way.

Mind is your ship, the Adjuster is your pilot, the human will is captain. The master of the mortal vessel should have the wisdom to trust the divine pilot to guide the ascending soul into the morontia harbors of eternal survival. Only by selfishness, slothfulness, and sinfulness can the will of man reject the guidance of such a loving pilot and eventually wreck the mortal career upon the evil shoals of rejected mercy and upon the rocks of embraced sin. With your consent, this faithful pilot will safely carry you across the barriers of time and the handicaps of space to the very source of the divine mind and on beyond, even to the Paradise Father of Adjusters.

  1. First, I’d like to thank Terry for the link to gospel-parallels.net. While Jesus taught that politics (as well as marriage, family, economics, equity and justice are for man to work out), he also taught that embracing his Gospel would transform and give us the insight and tools to solve these problems, which is the thrust of this site.

    Seems Carlos Gonzalez has the right idea, a message without political rhetoric. Kudos for posting this. While I realize the necessity to post political insights is the idea, which give readers an alternative to hogwash, it’s nice to see the spiritual insights as well.

    Best,

    From Wikipedia:
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
    This sentence has been called “one of the best-known sentences in the English language” and “the most potent and consequential words in American history”.

    I’m so shocked the Winger Right has never heard it.

      Great point, Dusty!

      Do these arrogant posers on the right really think they can trademark The One?

      Goddess knows what their reaction would have been had Carlos referred to what The Urantia Book calls The Universe Mother Spirit!
