Understand the Enormousness of Your Universe ; Discard the Futile Human Egos!
The universe as created and under creation by the First Source and Centre of all things and beings (or what we prefer to call as the Universal Father God) is so immense and vast that it would be difficult for finite beings such as you, the mortals of this small planet earth, to comprehend.
The Outline of the Structure of the Master Universe
Not only for you, but it is difficult for even several orders of us too, the superior immortal beings who exist in non material energy realms of the Universe. The enormousness of the master universe staggers the concept of even me who has ventured to reveal some truths about it to you, the lowly mortals of earth. No doubt, some of your intelligent scientists with their advanced space exploration devices have already finding more and more evidences to prove the incomprehensive vastness of the created universe of time and space.
But the mortal mind can be taught much about the plan and arrangement of the universes; you can know something of their physical organization and marvelous administration; you may learn much about the various groups of intelligent beings who inhabit the seven super universes of time and the central universe of eternity.
In principle, we conceive of material creation as being infinite because the Universal Father is actually infinite, but as we study and observe the total material creation, we know that at any given moment in time it is limited, although to your finite minds it is comparatively limitless, virtually boundless.
To created beings the master universe might appear to be almost infinite, but it is far from finished; there are still physical limits to the material creation!
The universe of universes is not an infinite plane, a boundless cube, nor a limitless circle; it certainly has dimensions.
The laws of physical organization and administration prove conclusively that the whole vast aggregation of force-energy and matter-power functions ultimately as a space unit, as an organized and co-ordinated whole.
The observable behavior of the material creation constitutes evidence of a physical universe of definite limits.
The successive space levels of the master universe constitute the major divisions of pervaded space of total creation, organized and partially inhabited or yet to be organized and inhabited.
The centre of the whole of the universe is the stationary universe island of enormous size which existed right from eternity as is the case of the Universal Father God. This is the matter-energy-gravity concentration of the entire universe and it is the nucleus of the master universe. Let us call this nucleus as the Paradise- because it is the unique material existence of the universe which is the residence of the Universal Father God. Remember, some of you have been calling the residence of God as Paradise for many centuries!
And Paradise is not an imagination, but it is real. It is the first existential non-living reality of the universe! It is also the only non-moving and non-spherical living space for the immortal beings of the highest orders.
Proceeding outward from Paradise through the horizontal extension of pervaded space, the master universe is existent in six concentric ellipses, the space levels encircling the central Isle:
1. The Central Universe — called the Havona
2. The Seven Super-universes- The Seven Sectors of the Grand Universe
3. The First Outer Space Level.
4. The Second Outer Space Level.
5. The Third Outer Space Level.
6. The Fourth and Outermost Space Level.
Havona, the central universe, is not a time creation; it is an eternal existence. This never-beginning, never-ending universe consists of one billion spheres of sublime perfection and is surrounded by the enormous dark gravity bodies.
At the center of Havona is the stationary and absolutely stabilized Isle of Paradise, surrounded by its twenty-one satellites. Owing to the enormous encircling masses of the dark gravity bodies about the fringe of the central universe, the mass content of this central creation is far in excess of the total known mass of all seven sectors of the grand universe.
The Stationary Paradise together with the one billion perfected worlds of Havona that encircles Paradise constitute the perfect and eternal nucleus of the master universe.
The seven sectors of the grand universe (which we call as the seven super-universes) and all four regions of outer space revolve in established orbits around the gigantic central aggregation of the Paradise - Havona System.
The Seven Super-universes are not primary physical organizations; nowhere do their boundaries divide a nebular family, neither do they cross a local universe, a prime creative unit.
Each super-universe is simply a geographic space clustering of approximately one seventh of the organized and partially inhabited post-Havona creation, and each is about equal in the number of local universes that constitute them and in the space encompassed.
Your earth is a life sustaining planet which is one among the 3.8 million such planetary worlds of your local universe which we prefer to introduce to you as Nebadon.
Nebadon is one of the local universes of the seventh super-universe which we would like you to identify as Orvonton. Being the last in the evolutionary process, both Orvonton and Nebadon are still contituing with their creative processes and are not yet fully finished creations.
The Grand Universe is the present organized and inhabited creation. It consists of the seven super-universes, with an aggregate evolutionary potential of around seven trillion inhabited planets, not to mention the eternal spheres of the central creation.
But this tentative estimate takes no account of architectural administrative spheres, neither does it include the outlying groups of unorganized universes. The present irregular edge of the grand universe, its uneven and unfinished periphery, together with the tremendously unsettled condition of the whole astronomical space, is an indication that even the seven super-universes are not yet fully completed. All the seven super-universe sectors of the grand universe are in varying degrees of creation even now.
As we move from within, from the divine center outward in any one direction, we do, eventually, come to the outer limits of the organized and inhabited creation; we come to the outer limits of the grand universe. And it is near this outer border, in a far-off corner of such a magnificent creation, that your local universe, Nebadon, has its eventful existence.
Far out in space, at an enormous distance from the seven inhabited super-universes, there are assembling vast and unbelievably stupendous circuits of force and materializing energies.
Between the energy circuits of the seven super-universes and this gigantic outer belt of force activity, there is a space zone of comparative quiet, which varies in width but averages about four hundred thousand light-years. These space zones are free from star dust, the cosmic fog.
But about one-half million light-years beyond the periphery of the present grand universe we observe the beginnings of a zone of an unbelievable energy action which increases in volume and intensity for over twenty-five million light-years. These tremendous wheels of energizing forces are situated in the first outer space level, a continuous belt of cosmic activity encircling the whole of the known, organized, and inhabited creation.
Still greater activities are taking place beyond these regions. We have detected early evidence of force manifestations more than fifty million light-years beyond the outermost ranges of the phenomena in the first outer space level. These activities undoubtedly indicate the signs of the organization of the material creations of the second outer space level of the master universe.
The central universe is the creation of eternity; the seven super-universes are the creations of time; the four outer space levels are undoubtedly destined to eventuate-evolve the ultimacy of creation.
And there are those among us who maintain that the Infinite can never attain full expression short of infinity; and therefore they postulate an additional and unrevealed creation beyond the fourth and outermost space level, a possible ever-expanding, never-ending universe of infinity.
In theory we do not know how to limit either the infinity of the Creator or the potential infinity of creation, but as it exists and is administered, we regard the master universe as having limitations, as being definitely delimited and bounded on its outer margins by open space.
But remember this. You are not alone in this universe. You are one among the many orders of intelligent living beings that are created under definite plans of the Universal Father God. You may be mortals now in the physical sense. You may not be immortals like us as of now.
But I assure you, you are not destined to be mortals. There exists a definite plan for each and every one of you. If you live your short lives on your first world of experiential existence fulfilling the basic requirements of divine mandate, you would survive your physical death and progress to become mighty immortals like us or perhaps even greater ones! So try to live according to the divine plans when you struggle with your intelligence and wisdom on your evolutionary planet!
Think about the futility of living with your human egos, greed and other such progress inhibiting qualities which could alienate you from the divine plans .
Think of the possibilities of the future immortality and an ever expanding life of immortal adventure!
