TM/TeaM/T/R: Unconscious Sophistry or Benign Restatements of The Urantia Book?

So, I read the TM/T/R site and was impressed with the organization of the website. My words of praise stop there. Why? After reading through a page of their archives, I cannot sit here and celebrate mediocrity. I offer no apologies for my view. Based on my years of reading experience with The Urantia Book, I see a pattern of common concepts gleaned from the contents and either directly quoted or restated.

What are they "seeing" that other readers are not? And what makes this Teaching Mission different from this statement in The Urantia Book?

But it should be made clear that the midway creatures are not involved in the sordid performances taking place under the general designation of "spiritualism." The midwayers at present on Urantia, all of whom are of honorable standing, are not connected with the phenomena of so-called "mediumship"; 77:865:8

There are many admonitions in The Urantia Book against so-called mysticism, transcedental states, and "islands" of focal attention.

Everyone needs to go back and read 1099! Sheesh! Read what is and isn't true spiritual nature! It occurs in the commonplace soul of glad tidings and worship. Not any kind of trance or vision or what is clearly described as mystical!

Overall, this phenomenon is a rise in the subconscious of sincere and earnest believers who simply desire the age of Light and Life right here and now. Although there is nothing wrong with those sincere efforts, it can delve into dangerous areas of mental distraction, diffusion, and disorder when taken to an extreme. There are no obstacles between us and our own indwelling Father fragment except our own inherent limitations. Given this revelation, the ongoing experience of personal growth (tempered with real experience in the real world), and a true sense of 'Reality Response', one can foster a personal (note stress on the word, 'personal') spiritual experience. But, only when tempered with wisdom and discretion should it be distilled and shared with others.
No one can substitute a personal religious experience for another's.
