"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 – XXIX. The Morontia Life (5 of 6)

5.  Technicians.  These are the seraphim who help the
mortals from the trial worlds adjust to the new and comparatively
strange environment of the morontia spheres.  In adjusting to
every new morontia level, ascenders are greatly helped by the
seraphic technicians.

These seraphim act as liaison with the Morontia Power
Supervisors and with the Master Physical Controllers.  Finally,
they serve as instructors to the morontia students concerning the
nature of those energies which are utilized on the transition

6.  Recorder-Teachers.  “These seraphims are the recorders
of the borderland transactions of the spiritual and the physical,
of the relationships of men and angels, of the morontia
transactions of the lower universe realms.”

Part of their time is devoted to the education and training
of the ascending pilgrims.  Before leaving Jerusem, you will
become quite familiar with the history of Satania and its 619
inhabited worlds, and much of this history will be provided by
the seraphic recorders.

7.  Ministering Reserves.  These angels as I understand it
are unassigned; they use their free time to minister to the newly
arrived morontia souls.  Next to the destiny guardians, these
angels draw the nearest to humans.

I picture myself as a newcomer on the first mansion world
with plenty of questions and even more concerns.  If I succeed in
befriending one of these angels, I can ask him all of the
questions I have on my mind.  I can request him to assist me in
cutting down to size all my mortal worries.  And there is plenty
to learn from such a being.  Some possible lessons from the Book

“From them you will learn to let pressure develop stability
and certainty; to be faithful and earnest and, withal, cheerful;
to accept challenges without complaint and to face difficulties
and uncertainties without fear.  They will ask:  If you fail,
will you rise indomitably to try anew?  If you succeed, will you
maintain a well balanced poise – a stabilized and spiritualized
attitude – throughout every effort in the long struggle to break
the fetters of material inertia, to attain the freedom of spirit

“Even as mortals, so have these angels been father to many
disappointments, and they will point out that sometimes your most
disappointing disappointments have become your greatest
blessings.  Sometimes the planting of a seed necessitates its
death, the death of your fondest hopes, before it can be reborn
to bear the fruits of new life and new opportunity.  And from
them you will learn to suffer less through sorrow and
disappointments, first, by making fewer personal plans concerning
other personalities, and then, by accepting your lot when you
have faithfully performed your duty.”

Three revelations made in the Book stayed etched in my
memory:  First, the fact that we all have to raise children
whether here on Earth, or on the System.  Second, that males
remain males and females remain females throughout the whole
scheme of eternity.  And never will the two understand each
other!  Third, that nothing is more important than what you’re
doing right now.  This last one is contained in the amazing
passage that follows.  It include many lessons.  Indeed, I
suspect that each one of us will benefit from it in his or her
own way.

“You will learn that you increase your burdens and decrease
the likelihood of success by taking yourself too seriously.
Nothing can take precedence over the work of your status sphere –
this world or the next.  Very important is the work of
preparation for the next higher sphere, but nothing equals the
importance of the work of the world in which you are actually
living.  But though the work is important, the self is not.  When
you feel important, you lose energy to the wear and tear of ego
dignity so that there is little energy left to do the work.
Self-importance, not work-importance, exhausts immature
creatures; it is the self element that exhausts, not the effort
to achieve.  You can do important work if you do not become self-
important; you can do several things as easily as one if you
leave yourself out.  Variety is restful; monotony is what wears
and exhausts.  Day after day is alike – just life or the
alternative of death.”  [P551 to 555].
