PAPER 107: ORIGIN AND NATURE OF THOUGHT ADJUSTERS
107:0.1 Although the Universal Father is personally resident on Paradise, at the very center of the universes, he is also actually present on the
worlds of space in the minds of his countless children of time, for he indwells them as the Mystery Monitors. The eternal Father is at one and the
same time farthest removed from, and most intimately associated with, his planetary mortal sons.
107:0.2 The Adjusters are the actuality of the Father's love incarnate in the souls of men; they are the veritable promise of man's eternal career
imprisoned within the mortal mind; they are the essence of man's perfected finaliter personality, which he can foretaste in time as he progressively
masters the divine technique of achieving the living of the Father's will, step by step, through the ascension of universe upon universe until he
actually attains the divine presence of his Paradise Father.
107:0.3 God, having commanded man to be perfect, even as he is perfect, has descended as the Adjuster to become man's experiential partner in the
achievement of the supernal destiny which has been thus ordained. The fragment of God which indwells the mind of man is the absolute and unqualified
assurance that man can find the Universal Father in association with this divine Adjuster, which came forth from God to find man and sonship him even
in the days of the flesh.
107:0.4 Any mortal who has seen a Creator Son has seen the Universal Father, and he who is indwelt by a divine Adjuster is indwelt by the Paradise
Father. Every mortal who is consciously or unconsciously following the leading of his indwelling Adjuster is living in accordance with the will of
God. Consciousness of Adjuster presence is consciousness of God's presence. Eternal fusion of the Adjuster with the evolutionary soul of man is the
factual experience of eternal union with God as a universe associate of Deity.
107:0.5 It is the Adjuster who creates within man that unquenchable yearning and incessant longing to be like God, to attain Paradise, and there
before the actual person of Deity to worship the infinite source of the divine gift. The Adjuster is the living presence which actually links the
mortal son with his Paradise Father and draws him nearer and nearer to the Father. The Adjuster is our compensatory equalization of the enormous
universe tension which is created by the distance of man's removal from God and by the degree of his partiality in contrast with the universality of
the eternal Father.
107:0.6 The Adjuster is an absolute essence of an infinite being imprisoned within the mind of a finite creature which, depending on the choosing of
such a mortal, can eventually consummate this temporary union of God and man and veritably actualize a new order of being for unending universe
service. The Adjuster is the divine universe reality which factualizes the truth that God is man's Father. The Adjuster is man's infallible cosmic
compass, always and unerringly pointing the soul Godward.
107:0.7 On the evolutionary worlds, will creatures traverse three general developmental stages of being: From the arrival of the Adjuster to
comparative full growth, about twenty years of age on Urantia, the Monitors are sometimes designated Thought Changers. From this time to the
attainment of the age of discretion, about forty years, the Mystery Monitors are called Thought Adjusters. From the attainment of discretion to
deliverance from the flesh, they are often referred to as Thought Controllers. These three phases of mortal life have no connection with the three
stages of Adjuster progress in mind duplication and soul evolution.
107:1 ORIGIN OF THOUGHT ADJUSTERS
107:1.1 Since Thought Adjusters are of the essence of original Deity, no one may presume to discourse authoritatively upon their nature and origin; I
can only impart the traditions of Salvington and the beliefs of Uversa; I can only explain how we regard these Mystery Monitors and their associated
entities throughout the grand universe.
107:1.2 Though there are diverse opinions regarding the mode of the bestowal of Thought Adjusters, there exist no such differences concerning their
origin; all are agreed that they proceed direct from the Universal Father, the First Source and Center. They are not created beings; they are
fragmentized entities constituting the factual presence of the infinite God. Together with their many unrevealed associates, the Adjusters are
undiluted and unmixed divinity, unqualified and unattenuated parts of Deity; they are of God, and as far as we are able to discern, they are God
107:1.3 As to the time of their beginning separate existences apart from the absoluteness of the First Source and Center, we do not know; neither do
we know their number. We know very little concerning their careers until they arrive on the planets of time to indwell human minds, but from that time
on we are more or less familiar with their cosmic progressions up to and including the consummation of their triune destinies: attainment of
personality by fusion with some mortal ascender, attainment of personality by fiat of the Universal Father, or liberation from the known assignments
of Thought Adjusters.
107:1.4 Although we do not know, we presume that Adjusters are being constantly individualized as the universe enlarges, and as the candidates for
Adjuster fusion increase in numbers. But it may be equally possible that we are in error in attempting to assign a numerical magnitude to the
Adjusters; like God himself, these fragments of his unfathomable nature may be existentially infinite.
107:1.5 The technique of the origin of the Thought Adjusters is one of the unrevealed functions of the Universal Father. We have every reason to
believe that none of the other absolute associates of the First Source and Center have aught to do with the production of Father fragments. Adjusters
are simply and eternally the divine gifts; they are of God and from God, and they are like God.
107:1.6 In their relationship to fusion creatures they reveal a supernal love and spiritual ministry that is profoundly confirmative of the
declaration that God is spirit. But there is much that takes place in addition to this transcendent ministry that has never been revealed to Urantia
mortals. Neither do we fully understand just what really transpires when the Universal Father gives of himself to be a part of the personality of a
creature of time. Nor has the ascending progression of the Paradise finaliters as yet disclosed the full possibilities inherent in this supernal
partnership of man and God. In the last analysis, the Father fragments must be the gift of the absolute God to those creatures whose destiny
encompasses the possibility of the attainment of God as absolute.
107:1.7 As the Universal Father fragmentizes his prepersonal Deity, so does the Infinite Spirit individuate portions of his premind spirit to indwell
and actually to fuse with the evolutionary souls of the surviving mortals of the spirit-fusion series. But the nature of the Eternal Son is not thus
fragmentable; the spirit of the Original Son is either diffuse or discretely personal. Son-fused creatures are united with individualized bestowals of
the spirit of the Creator Sons of the Eternal Son.
