THE SUPREME TRINITY PERSONALITIES
18:0.1 SUPREME Trinity Personalities are all created
for specific service. They are designed by the divine Trinity for the
fulfillment of certain specific duties, and they are qualified to serve with
perfection of technique and finality of devotion. There are seven orders of
the Supreme Trinity Personalities:
1. Trinitized Secrets of Supremacy.
2. Eternals of Days.
3. Ancients of Days.
4. Perfections of Days.
5. Recents of Days.
6. Unions of Days.
7. Faithfuls of Days.
18:0.2 These beings of administrative perfection are
of definite and final numbers. Their creation is a past event; no more are
18:0.3 Throughout the grand universe these Supreme
Trinity Personalities represent the administrative policies of the Paradise
Trinity; they represent the justice and are the executive judgment of the
Paradise Trinity. They form an interrelated line of administrative perfection
extending from the Paradise spheres of the Father to the headquarters worlds
of the local universes and to the capitals of their component
18:0.4 All Trinity-origin beings are created in
Paradise perfection in all their divine attributes. Only in the realms of
experience has the passing of time added to their equipment for cosmic
service. There is never any danger of default or risk of rebellion with
Trinity-origin beings. They are of divinity essence, and they have never been
known to depart from the divine and perfect path of personality conduct.
1. THE TRINITIZED SECRETS OF SUPREMACY
18:1.1 There are seven worlds in the innermost
circuit of the Paradise satellites, and each of these exalted worlds is
presided over by a corps of ten Trinitized Secrets of Supremacy. They are not
creators, but they are supreme and ultimate administrators. The conduct of the
affairs of these seven fraternal spheres is wholly committed to this corps of
seventy supreme directors. Though the offspring of the Trinity supervise these
seven sacred spheres nearest Paradise, this group of worlds is universally
known as the personal circuit of the Universal Father.
18:1.2 The Trinitized Secrets of Supremacy function
in groups of ten as co-ordinate and joint directors of their respective
spheres, but they also function individually in particular fields of
responsibility. The work of each of these special worlds is divided into seven
major departments, and one of these co-ordinate rulers presides over each such
division of specialized activities. The remaining three act as the personal
representatives of triune Deity in relation to the other seven, one
representing the Father, one the Son, and one the Spirit.
18:1.3 Although there is a definite class
resemblance which typifies the Trinitized Secrets of Supremacy, they also
disclose seven distinct group characteristics. The ten supreme directors of
Divinington affairs are reflective of the personal character and nature of the
Universal Father; and so it is with each of these seven spheres: Each group of
ten resembles that Deity or Deity association which is characteristic of their
domain. The ten directors who rule Ascendington are reflective of the combined
nature of the Father, Son, and Spirit.
18:1.4 I can reveal very little about the work of
these high personalities on the seven sacred worlds of the Father, for they
are truly the Secrets of Supremacy. There are no arbitrary secrets
associated with the approach to the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, or the
Infinite Spirit. The Deities are an open book to all who attain divine
perfection, but all the Secrets of Supremacy can never be fully attained.
Always will we be unable fully to penetrate the realms containing the
personality secrets of Deity association with the sevenfold grouping of
18:1.5 Since the work of these supreme directors has
to do with the intimate and personal contact of the Deities with these seven
basic groupings of universe beings when domiciled on these seven special
worlds or while functioning throughout the grand universe, it is fitting that
these very personal relations and extraordinary contacts should be held
sacredly secret. The Paradise Creators respect the privacy and sanctity of
personality even in their lowly creatures. And this is true both of
individuals and of the various separate orders of personalities.
18:1.6 To beings of even high universe attainment
these secret worlds ever remain a test of loyalty. It is given us fully and
personally to know the eternal Gods, freely to know their characters of
divinity and perfection, but it is not granted us fully to penetrate all of
the personal relations of the Paradise Rulers with all of their creature
2. THE ETERNALS OF DAYS
18:2.1 Each of the billion worlds of Havona is
directed by a Supreme Trinity Personality. These rulers are known as the
Eternals of Days, and they number exactly one billion, one for each of the
Havona spheres. They are the offspring of the Paradise Trinity, but like the
Secrets of Supremacy there are no records of their origin. Forever have these
two groups of all-wise fathers ruled their exquisite worlds of the
Paradise-Havona system, and they function without rotation or
18:2.2 The Eternals of Days are visible to all will
creatures dwelling in their domains. They preside over the regular planetary
conclaves. Periodically, and by rotation, they visit the headquarters spheres
of the seven superuniverses. They are close of kin to, and are the divine
equals of, the Ancients of Days, who preside over the destinies of the seven
supergovernments. When an Eternal of Days is absent from his sphere, his world
is directed by a Trinity Teacher Son.
18:2.3 Except for the established orders of life,
such as the Havona natives and other living creatures of the central universe,
the resident Eternals of Days have developed their respective spheres entirely
in accordance with their own personal ideas and ideals. They visit each
other's planets, but they do not copy or imitate; they are always and wholly
18:2.4 The architecture, natural embellishment,
morontia structures, and spirit creations are exclusive and unique on each
sphere. Every world is a place of everlasting beauty and is wholly unlike any
other world in the central universe. And you will each spend a longer or
shorter time on each of these unique and thrilling spheres on your way inward
through Havona to Paradise. It is natural, on your world, to speak of Paradise
as upward, but it would be more correct to refer to the divine goal of
ascension as inward.
3. THE ANCIENTS OF DAYS
18:3.1 When mortals of time graduate from the
training worlds surrounding the headquarters of a local universe and are
advanced to the educational spheres of their superuniverse, they have
progressed in spiritual development to that point where they are able to
recognize and communicate with the high spiritual rulers and directors of
these advanced realms, including the Ancients of Days.
18:3.2 The Ancients of Days are all basically
identical; they disclose the combined character and unified nature of the
Trinity. They possess individuality and are in personality diverse, but they
do not differ from each other as do the Seven Master Spirits. They provide the
uniform directorship of the otherwise differing seven superuniverses, each of
which is a distinct, segregated, and unique creation. The Seven Master Spirits
are unlike in nature and attributes, but the Ancients of Days, the personal
rulers of the superuniverses, are all uniform and superperfect offspring of
the Paradise Trinity.
18:3.3 The Seven Master Spirits on high determine
the nature of their respective superuniverses, but the Ancients of Days
dictate the administration of these same superuniverses. They
superimpose administrative uniformity on creative diversity and insure the
harmony of the whole in the face of the underlying creational differences of
the seven segmental groupings of the grand universe.
18:3.4 The Ancients of Days were all trinitized at
the same time. They represent the beginning of the personality records of the
universe of universes, hence their name -- Ancients of Days. When you
reach Paradise and search the written records of the beginning of things, you
will find that the first entry appearing in the personality section is the
recital of the trinitization of these twenty-one Ancients of Days.
18:3.5 These high beings always govern in groups of
three. There are many phases of activity in which they work as individuals,
still others in which any two can function, but in the higher spheres of their
administration they must act jointly. They never personally leave their
residential worlds, but then they do not have to, for these worlds are the
superuniverse focal points of the far-flung reflectivity system.
18:3.6 The personal abodes of each trio of the
Ancients of Days are located at the point of spiritual polarity on their
headquarters sphere. Such a sphere is divided into seventy administrative
sectors and has seventy divisional capitals in which the Ancients of Days
reside from time to time.
18:3.7 In power, scope of authority, and extent of
jurisdiction the Ancients of Days are the most powerful and mighty of any of
the direct rulers of the time-space creations. In all the vast universe of
universes they alone are invested with the high powers of final executive
judgment concerning the eternal extinction of will creatures. And all three
Ancients of Days must participate in the final decrees of the supreme tribunal
of a superuniverse.
18:3.8 Aside from the Deities and their Paradise
associates, the Ancients of Days are the most perfect, most versatile, and the
most divinely endowed rulers in all time-space existence. Apparently they are
the supreme rulers of the superuniverses; but they have not experientially
earned this right to rule and are therefore destined sometime to be superseded
by the Supreme Being, an experiential sovereign, whose vicegerents they will
18:3.9 The Supreme Being is achieving the
sovereignty of the seven superuniverses by experiential service just as a
Creator Son experientially earns the sovereignty of his local universe. But
during the present age of the unfinished evolution of the Supreme, the
Ancients of Days provide the co-ordinated and perfect administrative
overcontrol of the evolving universes of time and space. And the wisdom of
originality and the initiative of individuality characterize all the decrees
and rulings of the Ancients of Days.
4. THE PERFECTIONS OF DAYS
18:4.1 There are just two hundred and ten
Perfections of Days, and they preside over the governments of the ten major
sectors of each superuniverse. They were trinitized for the special work of
assisting the superuniverse directors, and they rule as the immediate and
personal vicegerents of the Ancients of Days.
18:4.2 Three Perfections of Days are assigned to
each major sector capital, but unlike the Ancients of Days, it is not
necessary that all three be present at all times. From time to time one of
this trio may absent himself to confer in person with the Ancients of Days
concerning the welfare of his realm.
18:4.3 These triune rulers of the major sectors are
peculiarly perfect in the mastery of administrative details, hence their name
-- Perfections of Days. In recording the names of these beings of the
spiritual world, we are confronted with the problem of translating into your
tongue, and very often it is exceedingly difficult to render a satisfactory
translation. We dislike to use arbitrary designations which would be
meaningless to you; hence we often find it difficult to choose a suitable
name, one which will be clear to you and at the same time be somewhat
representative of the original.
18:4.4 The Perfections of Days have a moderate-sized
corps of Divine Counselors, Perfectors of Wisdom, and Universal Censors
attached to their governments. They have still larger numbers of Mighty
Messengers, Those High in Authority, and Those without Name and Number. But
much of the routine work of major sector affairs is carried on by the
Celestial Guardians and the High Son Assistants. These two groups are drawn
from among the trinitized offspring of either Paradise-Havona personalities or
glorified mortal finaliters. Certain of these two orders of
creature-trinitized beings are retrinitized by the Paradise Deities and then
are dispatched to assist in the administration of the superuniverse
18:4.5 Most of the Celestial Guardians and the High
Son Assistants are assigned to the service of the major and the minor sectors,
but the Trinitized Custodians (Trinity-embraced seraphim and midwayers) are
the officers of the courts of all three divisions, functioning in the
tribunals of the Ancients of Days, the Perfections of Days, and the Recents of
Days. The Trinitized Ambassadors (Trinity-embraced ascendant mortals of Son-
or Spirit-fused nature) may be encountered anywhere in a superuniverse, but
the majority are in the service of the minor sectors.
18:4.6 Before the times of the full unfolding of the
governmental scheme of the seven superuniverses, practically all
administrators of the various divisions of these governments, excepting the
Ancients of Days, served apprenticeships of varying duration under the
Eternals of Days on the various worlds of the perfect Havona universe. The
later trinitized beings likewise passed through a season of training under the
Eternals of Days before they were attached to the service of the Ancients of
Days, the Perfections of Days, and the Recents of Days. They are all seasoned,
tried, and experienced administrators.
18:4.7 You will early see the Perfections of Days
when you advance to the headquarters of Splandon after your sojourn on the
worlds of your minor sector, for these exalted rulers are closely associated
with the seventy major sector worlds of higher training for the ascendant
creatures of time. The Perfections of Days, in person, administer the group
pledges to the ascending graduates of the major sector schools.
18:4.8 The work of the pilgrims of time on the
worlds surrounding a major sector headquarters is chiefly of an intellectual
nature in contrast with the more physical and material character of the
training on the seven educational spheres of a minor sector and with the
spiritual undertakings on the four hundred ninety university worlds of a
18:4.9 Although you are entered only upon the
registry of the major sector of Splandon, which embraces the local universe of
your origin, you will have to pass through every one of the ten major
divisions of our superuniverse. You will see all thirty of the Orvonton
Perfections of Days before you reach Uversa.
5. THE RECENTS OF DAYS
18:5.1 The Recents of Days are the youngest of the
supreme directors of the superuniverses; in groups of three they preside over
the affairs of the minor sectors. In nature they are co-ordinate with the
Perfections of Days, but in administrative authority they are subordinate.
There are just twenty-one thousand of these personally glorious and divinely
efficient Trinity personalities. They were created simultaneously, and
together they passed through their Havona training under the Eternals of
18:5.2 The Recents of Days have a corps of
associates and assistants similar to that of the Perfections of Days. In
addition they have assigned to them enormous numbers of the various
subordinate orders of celestial beings. In the administration of the minor
sectors they utilize large numbers of the resident ascending mortals, the
personnel of the various courtesy colonies, and the various groups originating
in the Infinite Spirit.
18:5.3 The governments of the minor sectors are very
largely, though not exclusively, concerned with the great physical problems of
the superuniverses. The minor sector spheres are the headquarters of the
Master Physical Controllers. On these worlds ascending mortals carry on
studies and experiments having to do with an examination of the activities of
the third order of the Supreme Power Centers and of all seven orders of the
Master Physical Controllers.
18:5.4 Since the regime of a minor sector is so
extensively concerned with physical problems, its three Recents of Days are
seldom together on the capital sphere. Most of the time one is away in
conference with the Perfections of Days of the supervising major sector or
absent while representing the Ancients of Days at the Paradise conclaves of
the high Trinity-origin beings. They alternate with the Perfections of Days in
representing the Ancients of Days at the supreme councils on Paradise.
Meanwhile, another Recent of Days may be away on a tour of inspection of the
headquarters worlds of the local universes belonging to his jurisdiction. But
at least one of these rulers always remains on duty at the headquarters of a
18:5.5 You will all sometime know the three Recents
of Days in charge of Ensa, your minor sector, since you must pass through
their hands on your way inward to the training worlds of the major sectors. In
ascending to Uversa, you will pass through only one group of minor sector
6. THE UNIONS OF DAYS
18:6.1 The Trinity personalities of the order of
"Days" do not function in an administrative capacity below the level of the
superuniverse governments. In the evolving local universes they act only as
counselors and advisers. The Unions of Days are a group of liaison
personalities accredited by the Paradise Trinity to the dual rulers of the
local universes. Each organized and inhabited local universe has assigned to
it one of these Paradise counselors, who acts as the representative of the
Trinity, and in some respects, of the Universal Father, to the local
18:6.2 There are seven hundred thousand of these
beings in existence, though they have not all been commissioned. The reserve
corps of the Unions of Days functions on Paradise as the Supreme Council of
18:6.3 In a special manner these Trinity observers
co-ordinate the administrative activities of all branches of the universal
government, from those of the local universes up through the sector
governments to those of the superuniverse, hence their name -- Unions
of Days. They make a threefold report to their superiors: They report
pertinent data of a physical and semi-intellectual nature to the Recents of
Days of their minor sector; they report intellectual and quasi-spiritual
happenings to the Perfections of Days of their major sector; they report
spiritual and semiparadisiacal matters to the Ancients of Days at the capital
of their superuniverse.
18:6.4 Since they are Trinity-origin beings, all of
the Paradise circuits are available to them for intercommunication, and thus
are they always in touch with each other and with all other required
personalities up to the supreme councils of Paradise.
18:6.5 A Union of Days is not organically connected
with the government of the local universe of his assignment. Aside from his
duties as an observer, he acts only at the request of the local authorities.
He is an ex officio member of all primary councils and all important conclaves
of the local creation, but he does not participate in the technical
consideration of administrative problems.
18:6.6 When a local universe is settled in light and
life, its glorified beings associate freely with the Union of Days, who then
functions in an enlarged capacity in such a realm of evolutionary perfection.
But he is still primarily a Trinity ambassador and Paradise
18:6.7 A local universe is directly ruled by a
divine Son of dual Deity origin, but he has constantly by his side a Paradise
brother, a Trinity-origin personality. In the event of the temporary absence
of a Creator Son from the headquarters of his local universe, the acting
rulers are largely guided in their major decisions by the counsel of their
Union of Days.
7. THE FAITHFULS OF DAYS
18:7.1 These high Trinity-origin personalities are
the Paradise advisers to the rulers of the one hundred constellations in each
local universe. There are seventy million Faithfuls of Days, and like the
Unions of Days, not all are in service. Their Paradise reserve corps is the
Advisory Commission of Interuniverse Ethics and Self-government. Faithfuls of
Days rotate in service in accordance with the rulings of the supreme council
of their reserve corps.
18:7.2 All that a Union of Days is to a Creator Son
of a local universe, the Faithfuls of Days are to the Vorondadek Sons who rule
the constellations of that local creation. They are supremely devoted and
divinely faithful to the welfare of their constellations of assignment, hence
the name -- Faithfuls of Days. They act only as counselors; never do
they participate in administrative activities except upon the invitation of
the constellation authorities. Neither are they directly concerned in the
educational ministry to the pilgrims of ascension on the architectural
training spheres surrounding a constellation headquarters. All such
undertakings are under the supervision of the Vorondadek Sons.
18:7.3 All Faithfuls of Days functioning in the
constellations of a local universe are under the jurisdiction of, and report
directly to, the Union of Days. They do not have a far-flung system of
intercommunication, being ordinarily self-limited to an interassociation
within the limits of a local universe. Any Faithful of Days on duty in Nebadon
can and does communicate with all others of his order on duty in this local
18:7.4 Like the Union of Days on a universe
headquarters, the Faithfuls of Days maintain their personal residences on the
constellation capitals separate from those of the administrative directors of
such realms. Their abodes are indeed modest in comparison with the homes of
the Vorondadek rulers of the constellations.
18:7.5 The Faithfuls of Days are the last link in
the long administrative-advisory chain which reaches from the sacred spheres
of the Universal Father near the center of all things to the primary divisions
of the local universes. The Trinity-origin regime stops with the
constellations; no such Paradise advisers are permanently situated on their
component systems or on the inhabited worlds. These latter administrative
units are wholly under the jurisdiction of beings native to the local
18:7.6 Presented by
a Divine Counselor of Uversa.
