"Women are the backbone of all societies. They do a substantial part of the work, and play a major role in raising the future generation yet they are largely powerless. The decisions that count are made by men and foisted upon women."

The Sublime Adventure – XLII. Our Capital (5 of 5)

Celestial Overseers

The Nebadon educational system is under the joint
administration of the Trinity Teachers Sons and the Melchizedek
Teaching corps. Its maintenance and upbuilding falls under the
jurisdiction of The Celestial Overseers. There are more than 3
million of them in Nebadon and they are all volunteers who have
qualified by experience to serve as educational advisers to the
entire realm.

The training of mind and spirit starts on your native planet
and carry on through your system, constellation, and the training
worlds of Salvington. Every possible effort is made to educate
the various personalities of the universe for advancing service
and improving function. The entire universe is one vast school.

“The methods employed in many of the higher schools are
beyond the human concept of the art of teaching truth, but this
is the keynote of the whole education system: character acquired
by enlightened experience. The teachers provide the
enlightenment; the universe station and the ascender’s status
afford the opportunity for experience; the wise utilization of
these two augments character.”

“Fundamentally, the Nebadon educational system provides for
your assignment to a task and then affords you an opportunity to
receive instruction as to the ideal and divine method of best
performing that task. You are given a definite task to perform,
and at the same time you are provided with teachers who are
qualified to instruct you in the best method of executing your
assignment. The divine plan of education provides for the
intimate association of work and instruction. We teach you how
best to execute the things we command you to do.”

“The progression of eternity does not consist solely in
spiritual development. Intellectual acquisition is also a part
of universal education. The experience of the mind is broadened
equally with the expansion of the spiritual horizon. Mind and
spirit are afforded like opportunities for training and
advancement. But in all this superb training of mind and spirit
you are forever free from the handicaps of mortal flesh. No
longer must you constantly referee the conflicting contentions of
your divergent spiritual and material natures. At last you are
qualified to enjoy the unified urge of a glorified mind long
since divested of primitive animalistic trends towards things

“Before leaving the universe of Nebadon, most Urantia
mortals will be afforded opportunity to serve for a longer or
shorter time as members of the Nebadon corps of Celestial
overseers.” [P412 & 413].

Universe Orientators

The task of preparing the Nebadon graduates for the next
universe age is entrusted to these specialized seraphim. The two
beautiful passages that follow outline their role.

“These are the true friends and postgraduate counselors of
all those ascending creatures who are pausing for the last time
on Salvington, in their universe of origin, as they stand on the
brink of the spirit adventure stretching out before them in the
vast superuniverse of Orvonton. And at such time many an
ascender has a feeling which mortals could understand only by
comparison with the human emotion of nostalgia. Behind lie the
realms of achievement, realms grown familiar by long service and
morontia attainment; ahead lies the challenging mystery of a
greater and vaster universe.”

“It is the task of the universe orientators to facilitate
the passage of the ascending pilgrims from the attained to the
unattained level of universe service, to help these pilgrims in
making those kaleidoscopic adjustments in the comprehension of
meanings and values inherent in the realization that a first-
stage spirit being stands, not at the end and climax of the local
universe morontia ascent, but rather at the very bottom of the
long ladder of spiritual ascent to the Universal Father on
Paradise.” [P428].
