Development Of Adjusters
There must be a comprehensive and elaborate plan for the training and development
of virgin Adjusters before they are sent forth from Divinington, but we really
do not know very much about it. There undoubtedly also exists an extensive system
for retraining Adjusters of indwelling experience before they embark upon new
missions of mortal association, but, again, we do not actually know.
I have been told by Personalized Adjusters that every time a
mortal fails of survival, when the Adjuster returns to Divinington, an extended
course of training is engaged in. This additional training is made possible
by the experience of having indwelt a human being, and it is always imparted
before the Adjuster is remanded to the evolutionary worlds of time.
Actual living experience has no cosmic substitute. The perfection of the divinity
of a newly formed Thought Adjuster does not in any manner endow this Mystery
Monitor with experienced ministrative ability. Experience is inseparable from
a living existence; it is the one thing which no amount of divine endowment
can absolve you from the necessity of securing by actual living. Therefore,
in common with all beings living and functioning within the present sphere of
the Supreme, Thought Adjusters must acquire experience; they must evolve from
the lower, inexperienced, to the higher, more experienced, groups.
Adjusters pass through a definite developmental career in the mortal mind; they
achieve a reality of attainment which is eternally theirs. They progressively
acquire Adjuster skill and ability as a result of any and all contacts with
the material races, regardless of the survival or nonsurvival of their particular
mortal subjects. They are also equal partners of the human mind in fostering
the evolution of the immortal soul of survival capacity.
The first stage of Adjuster evolution is attained in fusion with the surviving
soul of a mortal being. Thus, while you are in nature evolving inward and upward
from man to God, the Adjusters are in nature evolving outward and downward from
God to man; and so will the final product of this union of divinity and humanity
eternally be the son of man and the son of God.
