The other day I was trying to pair my headset with my laptop through bluetooth.
If you have ever tried to pair a device with bluetooth, it is basically one originating source sending out a signal looking to be “heard” by another device attuned to that frequency.
In my headset when I first wore it and pushed the button to get it to search for my other device I heard the headset saying “pairing,” then a brief pause and another “pairing,” is heard until it finally discovers whatever device is synced to hear that bluetooth’s particular frequency.
While I was doing this, I thought for a moment about the Adjutant Mind Spirits in the Urantia Book (Paper 34), the seven adjutant circuits that register and influence intelligent coordination among all beings throughout time and space, even to the evolutionary worlds, and further, how, using this same bluetooth example, the Adjutants are constantly looking to be “received” by minds hoping to be “paired.”
We are told that the Adjutant Mind Spirits, and there are seven of them, denoted as spirit circuits, are the Spirits of:
Intuition (life preservation)
Cooperation (problem solving with others)
Knowledge (higher functioning accumulated experience)
Counsel (seek and exchange knowledge from others)
Worship (desire to look beyond the physical to the spiritual)
Wisdom (unification of experience on spiritual and physical levels)
These seven “adjutants” are in reality, circuits that emit out into space from the Divine Mother Spirit (or the Holy Spirit, if you prefer) to attempt contact with those beings who possess minds capable of hearing the signal, or can “connect” with the circuit, and in doing so, achieve a new level of mental capacity.
These spirit circuits look to “touch” the minds of creation spread hither and yon, from the lowest animal mind to the highest functioning spirit mind of mortals. Once connection is made, pairing ensues.
This may be why sometimes people feel “spiritual;” as if there is some periodic “connection,” or “pairing” going in when you (as a device) occasionally have the ability to discern truth.
As with bluetooth, the farther you wander away from the source, the less reliable the signal becomes until you wander too far and the signal is longer there to guide you.
Also, just like bluetooth, when our minds are filled with interference (emotional distractions or even mental illness), we might find “pairing with the spirit” challenging because our devices (our minds, really) are not propitious to the ‘leadings of the spirit.’
I believe praying calibrates the mind so that connections can be improved and messages can be better understood from God the Spirit. After all, it is our minds that connect with God, not our bodies.
And all of this occurred to me in the blink of any eye one day while setting up my headset, which paired beautifully, I might add.
