DISCOVER THE URANTIA BOOK AND UNDERSTAND THE MYSTERY OF THE HUMAN SOUL
The Urantia Book (1955) offers a complex revelation about the evolving human soul that stands alone in its coherence and richness of detail. Your Evolving Soul is the first book to explain this advanced spiritual teaching for the ordinary reader, especially as it relates to today’s depth psychology, modern cosmology, Ken Wilber’s integral philosophy, and paranormal studies (including NDEs).
Belitsos depicts the soul as an energetic synthesis of the spiritual import of our ordinary human experiences. It evolves by virtue of “soul-making” decisions that shape our character as we grow into maturity. The soul advances in close partnership with the indwelling spirit, a divine entity that gifts us with the potential to fulfill a unique destiny now and into the afterlife. Readers also discover how our evolving soul, if we so choose, can become an immortal vehicle of personal identity that contributes something crucial to the growth of all other souls—and even to the evolution of Deity itself. Belitsos compares these futuristic Urantia teachings to traditional descriptions of self and soul, both East and West, showing how this legendary revelatory text clarifies the key differences between self, soul, and spirit that have remained obscured over the centuries. Through his lucid interpretation of the Urantia material, the author offers a model of the human soul to be tested, examined, and compared—not as a finished truth to be accepted as doctrine.
