a figment of your imagination
I have always had benefit, some benefit from getting still, and th occasional amazing revelation which benefitted me greatly, but from my perspective, non of it was spiritual

URANTIA (emphasis mine):
176:3.7 Truth is living; the Spirit of Truth is ever leading the children of light into new realms of spiritual reality and divine service. You are not given truth to crystallize into settled, safe, and honored forms. Your revelation of truth must be so enhanced by passing through your personal experience that new beauty and actual spiritual gains will be disclosed to all who behold your spiritual fruits and in consequence thereof are led to glorify the Father who is in heaven. Only those faithful servants who thus grow in the knowledge of the truth, and who thereby develop the capacity for divine appreciation of spiritual realities, can ever hope to "enter fully into the joy of their Lord." What a sorry sight for successive generations of the professed followers of Jesus to say, regarding their stewardship of divine truth: "Here, Master, is the truth you committed to us a hundred or a thousand years ago. We have lost nothing; we have faithfully preserved all you gave us; we have allowed no changes to be made in that which you taught us; here is the truth you gave us." But such a plea concerning spiritual indolence will not justify the barren steward of truth in the presence of the Master. In accordance with the truth committed to your hands will the Master of truth require a reckoning.

URANTIA (emphasis mine):
Yes, I've seen "truth" used for spiritual bypassing. People who were so sure they were destined for paradise, due to their embracing "truth", that they were unwilling to even acknowledge that they had questionable behavior worth their examination and attention.

so you agree with this URANTIA statement very much, is what you're stating?

You're reading something into what I wrote that isn't there.

Do you know Urantia adherents who fit the description I gave?

It's more interfaith-dialogue-ish when you write about it, I feel, rather than just throwing in some links.

We can all google stuff that interests us. We don't need a forum for that.

It's the interaction with real, live practitioners of various faiths and wirld views which makes this place what it is.

I believe a true faith is confrontational on different subjects, such as living with others, pleasing God and being one with reality. The most important fact of faith is it is being used by all peoples. We all practice natural faith, so i cannot understand why people do not get in touch with the supernatural faith.

Hi and welcome to the forums! I hope you'll find new input to extend your understanding of how and why and what people believe.

Supernatural is none other than superstition. Pleasing God! What evidence can you give us for existence of God? If you cannot give any evidence for existence of God, then what are you talking about reality? What do you mean by natural faith? The faith of the stone-age people? We know much more than that now.
