A Road Map to Transformation

Transformed people create transformed societies.

As we move through the 21st century, the age of materialism will decrease. By the end of the century, most of humanity will have enough food, shelter, and material goods to live a comfortable middleclass life. The transition to shorter workweeks will provide time to explore new pursuits. The next frontier becomes an age of health improvement, intellectual discovery, and spiritual actualization. As this evolutionary process unfolds, Urantia Book believers must provide a transformational road map for individuals and society based on the revelation’s teachings. Only this new revelation can spark the sustained improvement required for a more peaceful and loving world.

Today, our religious institutions have nearly exhausted their evolutionary potential. That’s why the current work at Urantia Foundation matters. Our job is to disseminate the supernal teachings, create translations, distribute books, support educational institutions, develop study aids, and nurture a worldwide family of believers. Planting perennial roots today will yield a mighty forest in future centuries.

Thank you for your love, prayers, and support. We’re in this together, and the revelation will succeed.

Transformation in Action

“Today, I have no doubt that The Urantia Book is a transcendental and authentic revelation and, as some have suggested, perhaps based on a statement by a Mighty Messenger in Paper 30, that it will be the guiding book for humanity for the next thousand years.“ Bogotá, Colombia

"I became a hospice volunteer as a result of The Urantia Book's emphasis on unselfish service. I cannot imagine doing this kind of work if I did not have the knowledge in this book as a guide. It is so reassuring to my patients when I tell them that there is life after death and what a beautiful experience it will be." Texas, USA

"When I encountered The Urantia Book, after a long inner search, my questions about the purpose of life and the future after death were answered. It was so logical, so intelligent and the universe was so full of love, it was a true revelation! Finally, there was a sense to it all! The Book became a part of my life, ennobled it, and made me learn to love my fellow men much more." France

"I have been reading The Urantia Book for the past four years. I lost my beloved wife eight months ago. God gave me a positive assurance through the pages of this book, so authentic, about the heavenly realm.” Kingdom of Bahrain

"After reading The Urantia Book, my life gained a grand new meaning. There was now nothing to fear and everything to look forward to.” Aylesbury, England

"The attempt to understand, believe, and practice the truths of the Urantia Revelation has positively shifted the fulcrum and focus of my life, and the Spirit of God has literally uplifted and transformed me by this effort!" Stockholm, Sweden

“In the late 60's I went to search for my guru. One day one while staying at a new friend's house I saw a big blue book. I opened it and read a few lines...I started shaking at what I saw and have been shaking ever since. I had found my guru and his name was Jesus.” Hawaii, USA

"After a lifetime of searching, my soul leapt with joy at the discovery of the truth and knowledge presented within these pages, and I will forever walk with God with the help of his loving servants and The Urantia Book." Calgary, Canada

The Urantia Book continues to play a vital role in my everyday life as a Christian, a parent, a professional, and a community member. I have known no better sources of guidance for my daily life; it is even an inspiration for parenting.” Eastern Cape, South Africa

“Since I was twenty years old I had been looking for the truth. All my family is Catholic, but I wanted more answers; I did not like dogma. I was and I am in love with Jesus . . .how could the Church be all of the truth? Finally The Urantia Book found me . . .each time I read it, it fills my heart.” Chile

"When I found The Urantia Book, my life was at a crossroad; religion, science, philosophy and all the new age literature could not fill the emptiness that was growing inside of me. My prayers were answered." Québec, Canada

"The Urantia Book has taught me to live the best life I can lead. It has inspired me to understand what God has intended for my life. I learned that 'truth, beauty and goodness' are the guides to living a righteous life." Colorado, USA

"When I finally grasped the enormity of what The Urantia Book reveals, loneliness, darkness, and fear disappeared like shadows from the sunrise." California, USA

Living the revelation forward

Thank you, Universal Father, for the gift of personality and associated free will, for your effective presence in each of us, and for accompanying us through the inevitabilities that you have placed in our path of growth.

Thank you, Creator Son, for the presence of your Spirit of Truth, who frees us from becoming helpless victims of the implied a priori assumptions of science, philosophy, and religion.

Thank you, Divine Minister, who administers our local universe, provides us with a mind, and enrolls us in the Holy Spirit, his personal Spirit.

Thank you, authors of this wonderful revelation, and the angels and midwayers who direct the seekers of truth to it.

Thank you, fellow believers, for your dedication and sense of responsibility to the universe and the Supreme.

Together let's pray that Urantia, this planet which has encountered so many difficulties and of which we are guests, may ultimately become a light in the universe of Nebadon. For it is and will forever remain the planet of bestowal of our Creator Son.

Georges Michaelson-Dupont
