Question: Was the Urantia book given by ascended masters?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Seoul, Korea in 2016.
No my beloved, it was not given by the ascended masters. It came from some beings in the mental realm, who although they do not have evil intentions, are still deceiving people because they are making it seem as if this is a higher truth and sponsored from a higher realm. But it is an example of how beings in the mental realm can create very, very elaborate constructions, very elaborate theories and teachings where they come up with very complex ideas. They can create seemingly new worlds.
You will, for example, see that many of the fantasy books that have become popular in later years actually originate in the mental realm from certain beings. Again, they do not have ill intentions in terms of destroying people or manipulating or controlling people. But they do have the intention of getting energy from people by causing people to put their attention on these very elaborate constructions that take people away from focusing on the situation they are facing in the material world.
It becomes a form of spiritual escapism where many people, because they find it difficult to deal with their physical situation and their karma, they escape into this fantasy world by thinking that there is some ideal society that is waiting to be manifest. Or there is some greater plan and because they are among the few people who know this, they do not have to look at themselves in the mirror, they do not have to make these decisions, they just have to follow that teaching and then somehow magically they will be saved after this lifetime.
This is a form of deceit that is not directly malicious as some of the other theories you find out there that are more dualistic and epic in nature. But it is still a form of deceit that has caused many well-meaning people to go into a blind alley that can keep them there often for a lifetime because they keep studying these mental teachings and they keep coming up with more and more theories and layers. They feel that they are very advanced students because they understand all of this mentally, but in reality they have not really moved forward on the path because they have not shifted their consciousness upwards.
