The Sublime Adventure – LVI. The Eternal Isle of Paradise (1 of 4)

“Paradise is the eternal center of the universe of universes
and the abiding place of the Universal Father, the Eternal Son,
the Infinite Spirit, and their diverse co-ordinates and

The spiritual beauty and the wonders of this magnificent
physical creation are utterly beyond mortal comprehension.

The Divine Residence

While Paradise serves many purposes in the administration of
the universal realms, for will creatures it us first and foremost
the dwelling place of Deity. “The personal presence of the
Universal Father is resident at the very center of the upper
surface of this well-nigh circular, but not spherical, abode of
the Deities. This Paradise presence of the Universal Father is
immediately surrounded by the personal presence of the Eternal
Son, while they are both invested by the unspeakable glory of the
Infinite Spirit.”

“God dwells, has dwelt, and everlastingly will dwell in this
same central and eternal abode. We have always found him there
and always will. The Universal Father is cosmically focalized,
spiritually personalized, and geographically resident at this
center of the universe of universes.”

Higher Personalities know the direct course to pursue to
find the Universal Father. They know “…God’s location and
residence just as certainly and literally as you know the
location of New York, London, Rome, or Singapore, cities
definitely and geographically located on Urantia.”

“The Father is always to be found at this central location.
Did he move, universal pandemonium would be precipitated, for
there converge in him at this residential center the universal
lines of gravity from the ends of creation. Whether we trace the
personality circuit back through the universes or follow the
ascending personalities as they journey inward to the Father;
whether we trace the lines of material gravity to nether Paradise
or follow the insurging cycles of cosmic force; whether we trace
the lines of spiritual gravity to the Eternal Son or follow the
inward processional of the Paradise Sons of God; whether we trace
out the mind circuits or follow the trillions upon trillion of
celestial beings who spring from the Infinite Spirit – by any of
these observations or by all of them we are led directly back to
the Father’s presence, to his central abode. Here is God
personally, literally, and actually present. And from his
infinite being there flow the flood-streams of life, energy, and
personality to all universes.” [P118 & 119].

Nature of the Eternal Isle

Our astronomers realize how immense the universe is. It
stands to reason therefore that such a vast cosmos would have an
adequate and worthy capital, a headquarters commensurate with the
dignity and infinitude of the universal Ruler of this vast

In form Paradise differs from the inhabited space bodies; it
is not spherical but rather ellipsoid. It does not rotate in
space, it is stationary.

The central Isle is geographically divided into three
domains of activity: Upper Paradise; Peripheral Paradise; and
Nether Paradise.

The surface of Paradise which is occupied with personalities
activities is the upper side, the opposite surface is the nether
side. The periphery provides for activities that are not
strictly personal or nonpersonal. “The Trinity seems to dominate
the personal or upper plane, the Unqualified Absolute the nether
or impersonal plane. We hardly conceive of the Unqualified
Absolute as a person, but we do think of the functional space
presence of this Absolute as focalized on nether Paradise.”
[P119 & 120].
