Emulan Part 1—Choose despair and destruction, or choose healing
Emulan had suffered the loss of his wife and daughter in a tragic accident. This caused him bitterness, depression and despair that almost took him to the brink of instanity. This is his story of how he emerged from the pits of adversity and despair, through to his professional education and experience as a therapist and expert of the huma
These are part of the Woods Cross Transcripts from 1999—2007, from one–Emulan, a teacher in the Urantia Teaching Mission, under the direction of Abraham and Melchizedek. This Examiner was present during these lectures which are based on the Urantia Papers. Emulan deliverd a series of lessons regarding despair, depression and mindal instability, and how he overcame using change of thinking and pattern–rather than medications or denial.
These “Correcting Time” teachers are just ahead of us in time—commissioned to come back to those just behind them in experience as teachers and guides through the transmitting process. These transcripts are not connected with any organized group or religion. The students involved are from various backgrounds and persuasions.
It is understood the skepticism that someone from thousands of years in history, and in this case from another world, can return to assist us today. If Emulan’s messages are helpful, then it matters not the messenger.
Abraham’s introduction of Emulan
Abraham: I am pleased to introduce an opportunity for you to meet personally with a new teacher. This teacher is skilled in the art of relationship building. He is quite direct and can be firm in his words. Have you not the strength for complete truth–seek not his counsel. Emulan is available to assist you in your lessons on strength and endurance. He is a kind counselor and friend. I can always count on him for constructive advice.
CALVIN: Concerning our opportunity to work with Emulan, how would you like us to schedule that–personal meetings or group interaction?
ABRAHAM: I am in understanding that he is to be viewed as a personal counselor, a spiritual therapist, so to speak. He is gifted at drawing the true individual out to the surface, and this is highly personal, but should there be a need, Emulan can surely speak in my stead. I can assure you that he has in-depth knowledge of this group and each individual in it. He has attended many meetings and studied a great deal on the inner workings of it. There may be need for him to speak, and yes, that can be arranged. In the meantime let’s continue with the personal growth meetings. Is this answering? (Yes. Thanks.) You are welcome. Another question?
MIRIAM: Abraham, can you tell us about Emulan, where he comes from, anything like that?
ABRAHAM: Yes. Emulan hails from a world that has similar strife torn experiences such as Urantia. In his mortal life he was considered successful. He experienced considerable loss of immediate family members and had bouts with mental imbalance. His embracing the divine empowered him to seek education in the psychiatric field, materially speaking. His morontial career advancements and education furthered his natural gift in this same field. Some may think him to be hardened by his adversity, and therefore so direct and harsh with his words, but this is not the case. While his experience in the flesh made him determined, his personal love of Michael drove him to fully embracing the Spirit of Truth, and from that, his love for Truth has served him and others in his field of expertise, yes. He is direct, yes, but his encouragement allows individuals’ faith levels to soar, yes.
ABRAHAM & EMULAN — The downward spiral into near insanity
I am ABRAHAM. Greetings, my friends. How well are you learning to become adaptable. It is understandable that this lesson will take time, but it is certainly worth it, especially concerning the eternal adventure ahead. I give you my friend and coworker, EMULAN.
Greetings, my fellows. I understand you each have been busy with your varying life changes. I know from personal experience that the mortal life becomes more spiritized as we can learn to adapt.
In my days of inhabiting the mortal body I had experiences that would seem rather harsh. I had lost my wife and daughter in an accident and the overwhelming pain brought me to the brink of insanity. I experienced the standard blaming Father for this crushing experience. I had experienced consuming despair. I had wished for the nothingness of an eternal slumber.
During these dark hours I could find no consolation. I was treated for depression and even spent much time hospitalized. In my darkest moments I had the realization that neither the doctors nor medication could pull me from my darkness. The pain I experienced was beyond this world and I needed to seek a source that could accommodate.
As I traveled the path of grief I released all I had longed for. I had allowed my wife and daughter to move from a despairing part of my mind to a loving remembrance area. I was at a point where I had to make a choice. Either I could adapt, accept these circumstances and work from what I knew best, or not adapt and become consumed with bitterness and the injustice of mortal living.
Did Father take my family from me? Of course not! Did He plunge me into the depths of despair? No, but I can say He helped me find a reason to go on, find value and meaning from this terrible accident. My best hope was to recover from depression and function in a normal life, and with Father’s help, I most certainly did, but our Father well exceeds our own expectations.
From my experience in the hospital I became interested in psychiatry and felt somewhat of a calling to pursue this avenue. I did through much effort graduate with degrees in psychiatry. I did go onto help others who entered into the darkness of the human mind. Father showed me the values of my own past experiences in my own service to others. He used what I deemed unusable and made it valuable, made it meaningful. Father showed me the strength that He possessed through viewing my own weaknesses. He showed me that in my adaptability He worked to better many lives.
Did I still miss my family? of course, but I found great satisfaction in making the best out of my new life calling in honor of them. In time I realized they were safe and well cared for. As I experienced my own healing my mind was opened to eternal possibilities. I felt I was with the comfort that I would see them again. I was strengthened in faith and trust that God is overseeing every detail, and surely is this mortal life not about suffering and finding the value there from; it is about becoming adaptable and useable to God.
His work is endless and He tires not. He only awaits those listening children to help Him in furthering His work. My brothers and sisters, we have tremendous tasks ahead of us in this Correcting Time. We need to become useable to Father to further His work, His plan, His Correcting Time. I thank you and leave you to ABRAHAM.
Our gratitude to our brother and coworker, Emulan, for this evening’s lesson. How better to teach than from personal experience. Wonderful, my friend. With that, we take our leave. Until next week, or love goes with you. Shalom.
