Dear Reader,

"Know yourself is the call which echoes in this twentieth century all over the earth. This call hails from the cosmos. It comes to incite philosophers and scientists, to place their spiritual and scientific findings and experiences to the benefit of all. This phenomenon has frequently happened before, and mostly those revelations have been of a mystic trend and have accordingly happened in connection with the rise of a new religious teaching to replace old or obsolete creeds. The early Egyptian Pharaohs, thousands of years ago, believed in the One God. They had the gift of clairvoyance and together with some of their people they formed the elite, which they themselves did not consider as being supermen, but just simple mediators between God and His creation. The common people, however, believed in many gods and goddesses and rarely has anybody dared to destroy their many idols and introduce the worship of the One God. The idolatrous high priests of those temples during the time of the first Pharaohs once tried such destruction, but the community murdered them. At the time of Tut-Ankh-Amon it was again tried to introduce the belief in the One God, but the Pharaoh was murdered. Moses tried to propagate the belief in the One God (1500 years before Jesus-Christ) but the followers of the idols persecuted and nearly murdered him. Socrates attacked Athena, the Goddess of the State of Athens, four centuries B.C. and taught the people of Athens that there was but the "One and Only God". He was condemned and put to death. Mohammed (700 years A.D.) destroyed the idols of Holy Mecca and prompted his contemporaries to follow the "Laws of the One God", to follow Him and to adore Him. He mysteriously escaped death several times in his eagerness to spread his creed of the One God Allah, and he was obliged to inspire terror into peoples souls by using martial exploits, according to his Holy Koran. In the Middle Ages, not only protestants, but also spiritualists, mediums and such-like people died at the stake. Even Joan of Arc died on the rack because she maintained that she did no wrong but carried out the commands of the "Voice from Above" which always spoke to her. For what reason do these High Spirits from Heaven reincarnate, ever repeating the same "There is only one God"? Because it is a Divine Plan necessary to show those reincarnated spirits on earth who look for purification and deliverance from error and evil, the path which leads to their liberation to perfection of the soul. to Eternal Bliss. The human being, having once accepted the "One God", now begins to feel that, as he deserves to become acquainted with his Creator, he has to live according to the Lord's Laws. and that this includes the study and the knowledge of God's Own Creation—the human being! Know yourself! What is the human being? A body of flesh and blood, an earthly person endowed with a spirit which is from Heaven above and which leads and guides this body. The body is temporal and is a tool for the spirit. The body is feelingless and lifeless, if not for the indwelling spirit. The spirit is able, whilv the person is asleep, to leave the body and to make contact with other spirits, but always responsible for the use and the actions of his physical abode. The body is able to see, to hear. smell, taste and feel because the indwelling spirit needs these senses and makes them function. When the human mouth speaks, it is surely the physical speech-organ in action, but it is the spirit which conducts and gives the impulse to the speech which is registered in the human brain and in the spirit. But the spirit obeys God's Command, not to reveal anything of its former lives on earth or in the cosmos to this human brain. And the spirit faithfully keeps this High Command, knowing that once the human brain is acquainted with his former lives it might happen, should this person realise his many vices and misdeeds of those former lives, he miglit feel very depressed and possibly end his own life before the time allotted to his present life. Once the human being realises these former lives he would also realise that he is put on earth to improve, to become a better human being and, consequently, a better spirit. He would therefore adjust himself as a good diplomat but would live with a masked face, and would appear different to his actual being — and this life would be purposeless and of no value to him. Therefore, the Lord has not permitted the human brains to realise the former lives of their spirits. The Lord will, however, permit that the human being may take a warning in regard to the future; he may know, that by leading a good life and by purification he may balance previous misdeeds, thus being permitted to ascend in the spiritworld. he may know that by leading an unsatisfactory life he is bound for more lives on earth or some other planet, that he is bound for more hard and difficult lives, to pay by suffering for all his vices and his evil-doing. What an instructive example shows us the life of Gautama Buddha! Born to kingship, married to a rich consort — he leaves everything — wealth and kingdom, a beautiful wife and a young son — to fulfil his mission on earth. He sees a sick man which repels him, and also a beggar in great misery and he realises that all this suffering and misery is a part of life; he observes a corpse devoured by birds of prey and he realises death. He asked the monks to tell him what Truth is, but got no satisfactory reply. He then retires to the wilderness, settles to meditate under a huge banyan tree, to find out the truth of life on earth, and he meditated — and after long meditation gains enlightenment: Life on earth means suffering of soul and body as penance for former evil deeds committed during previous incarnations. Life on earth is for purification. As long as perfection is not reached, the human spirit will return to earth in ever new bodies until unltimately — after having reached full perfection—to rise to Eternal Life and Eternal Bliss in the Light of God. Gautama Buddha shed his royal robes, his jewels and his riches; he donned the robe of a mendicant friar and wandered round in the wide world to proclaim the Truth: "People, know yourselves--you are here on earth to purify by suffering and thus become worthy and deserving of reaching Nirvana and the Kingdom of Heaven". "Endure your suffering with patience, it is your road to redemption and Eternal Bliss". Later still, Jesus Christ came and He told his disciples: "You have to be reborn many times before you will have reached the Kingdom of your Divine Father". Jesus Christ devoted his whole life to the study of the human soul: the core and significance of all His Teaching is thus: "Love one another, love your fellow beings and also your enemies—hate nobody and never take revenge — forgive those who offended you as your Father in Heaven forgives you your trespasses — if only you wish to rise and submit to your sufferings accept in humility whatever fate comes your way. ultimately all will be well balanced. Try to know yourself and you will find My Father deep within your heart. Then the Love of My Father will be balm and a blessing for you and the Gates of Eternal Bliss shall be opened unto you". Spiritualism teaches all those truths and teaches people: learn to know your inner self, then you will understand the meaning of your existence, and your life on earth will be easier and more satisfactory.

AMEN.
Dear Reader,



How do belief and science balance each other? Both are levers of the human intelligence — the one reveals laws of the spiritual world—the other laws of the physical world. Both have the same principles! — God — and the one cannot block the way of the other. Should they oppose each other — one would be right — the other wrong, for the Lord will not allow His work to be lost. The lack of understanding which the human being sees between belief and science results from a lack of observation, hence a conflict out of which arises inflexibility and intolerance. The time has now come for the teachings of the Christ to be accepted. The veil, which was spread over parts of His Teachings. must be removed. Science is compulsorily compelled to end to consider exclusively physical matter, but must include spiritual findings. And belief must not misjudge and not fail to appreciate the organic and imperishable physical laws. The two faculties, psychology and physiology, must respect and trust each other, work together, help and assist each other. Then belief will no longer be assailed and insulted by science — together they will become an unbreakable force. They will understand each other and the irresistible logic of facts, and clear all obstacles. Science and belief will not be on a common understanding as long as each sees only from its own point of view, and thus they oppose and repel each other. An agreement must be found to surmount the void which divides them. The solution is knowledge of the Laws which govern the spiritual world in relation to the physical. These laws are as irrevocable as the movements of the stars and the existence of living beings. These relations, which are established by experience and proofs, give us a new understanding. Belief has adjusted itself to reason — reason has not found anything illogical in belief — therefore science lost the battle — But here, just as anywhere else, we find people who remain behind until they are dragged along with the multitude — or destroyed. A moral rebellion developed and worked upon the human spirits. Now a new era is realised and substantiated — what was divided for eighteen centuries and is now approaching mankind. The consequences of this rebellion are easily predicted. From the social point of view remarkable changes will result which cannot be prevented because they belong to the Lord's Plan, according to the Law of Progress, which is the Law of God. The above cited text was written about one hundred years ago by the Late Allan Kardec (alias Dr. H. L. Rivail). Since that time, belief and science achieved a better understanding. Today, scientists accept that a life-force is existing in everything, even in minerals. Many scientists joined the spiritualistic movement and enquire sincerely into the messages from the spirits, study mediumship and mediumistic occurrences, etc. Belief and science agree in many circumstances and on many points — both seeking new truths. Spiritualism is leader and many obscurities have been cleared. This teaching has such a solid foundation that those who study it often say: if all this demonstrates spiritualism, we are all spiritualists. Those who struggle and want to accept only part of the scientific or spiritual truths are found in both faculties. Many accept only as truth what they see with their physical eyes, hear with their physical ears or feel with their physical hands. Many spiritualists know Divine Truths they read about in books, but have never attended séances of a high degree. They have never tested their psychic powers, neither tried to see with their spiritual eyes and, therefore, they accept nothing that trained and experienced mediums have seen and heard. It is easier to pull a teaching down than help to spread and to advance it. There are fortunately mediums who are professional scientists. They work physically for human progress but their spirit is, in co-operation with mediums, as clairvoyant, by automatic writing, by telepathy, able to see in the unknown space of the cosmos and also hear from invisible spirits. They join those spiritualists, who are not scientists, but intelligent people, who through theosophy and philosophy have studied life in the cosmos, and what the spiritualistic teaching proclaims in all simplicity and in sublime truth. Spiritualism has made great progress in just one century and, even if there are many who lag behind, the day will dawn when the greatest truth of all times will force its way. This truth is that belief and science develop and unfold mutually and join for the same purpose to establish eternal love and peace in the Light of the Divine Creator. The scientist contributes by study, research and experience and proves that matter is not dead dust but living matter to prove that even untreated raw minerals have life, that minerals in the sub-soil or underground change continually, grow and transform. The one, lagging behind, tries to contradict and refers to the influence of water and gases, but the precursor asks: Can anything change form or quality without life-force? Now the lagger replies: Yes .but what of the forces of nature? The precursor asks another question: What are forces of nature? Is there anything which originates by itself? If this be accepted, the existence of the Creator, the Almighty, must be an untruth. Nobody and nothing exists without the Creator because He deposited His Spark in everything existing, in minerals as well as in plants, animals and also in human beings. Here is where the intelligent human being comes in. He — in trance — explains that life on earth is not only scientific but also mystic because, once the human being accepts that everything on earth harbours a life-force, he must spontaneously feel respect and awe for the Almighty Creator, who is full of Love and Compassion for the ignorance, negligence, sins and mistakes of human beings who have taken a long time to realise good and evil, love and forgiveness. Both the scientist and the mystic are necessary in life. Each have a mission to fulfil — their paths run parallel. And their spirits will understand why — after their life on earth is ended. The scientist will know why he did research in the invisible life-force of matter and on the visible human being. The mystic will understand better than during his incarnation on earth why he served the Lord and helped to spread the Divine Laws. It is a certainty! Science and belief are closer together now than ever before and they will continue to come to deeper understanding .The scientist stands with both feet on the ground and works in physical matter for the wellbeing of the physical human being. The mystic lives more in the spiritual sphere than in the physical world. He works for the wellbeing of the human spirits. The mystic is an idealist . He looks at belief via theology and philosophy for the Divine Truth. He gives his belief a lasting form in words and formative art. Each goes his own way seeking for truth. Their experience and their research ignite in their souls a holy fire which brings them closer to the Creator. With golden letters is written: "Love and Compassion". Allan Kardec (the father of Modem Spiritualism) lived his life according to those words. The scientist and the mystic have here combined to practice these virtues. You, too — as humble creatures — should choose the same path, thus to allow joy, harmony and peace to embellish your life.

AMEN.
Dear Reader,



That an Atom of God is present in everything that exists is widely accepted, as is also the development of belief in Spiritualism. The earth is at present subjected to theoretical and practical tests and treatments similar to a patient under medical treatment. A sick person has to undergo many different physical and mental tests before a successful treatment can be accomplished. Most physicians though, try only to heal the body. They assume that, if a person suffers physical pain, it is their human duty to relieve this pain. But is this really the physician's sole duty? We do think that relieving of pain is not the only means of healing a sick organ. A broken bone, for instance, needs chirurgical help. And then there are many internal diseases which do not originate from the physical body, but are caused by psychic and mental suffering — grief, affliction and such like. Such cases affect the nervous system . Such disturbances cause heart trouble or kidney, stomach, bowel, gall or liver trouble — sometimes it might be the adrenal bodies or the hypnosis or the thyroidal. A??????????st in all ????????f physical disturbances, caused ???????????????????????????????f the trouble and must treat accordingly, the body as well as the spirit; as far as health is concerned, the body feels the setback and gets ill too, when the spirit is sick. It is the same with world events. The physical process must necessarily correspond to the spiritual process There is an obligatory disparity if the one proceeds, the other is retarded; the fast is hindered by the tardy one and when the distance between the two becomes too great there is a cataclysm, and many unpleasant catastrophes occur, such as strikes, rebellions, civil wars, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, and so on. The earth has arrived at the atom period as far as science is concerned with this gigantic physical development, and there is a strong indication that this period will be the last one to be recorded for this earth. The atomic period is a material condition. Is this material condition at part with the spiritual evolution of mankind? We have to consider all the present happenings in the world to get this clear. Atom bombs are shot into space; artificial satellites sent to rotate around the earth. Test rockets are sent to other planets. All this amounts to the attempt, that science tries to approach the Creator, and that the human being tries hard to be a creator himself. There are evidently spiritual truths publicly proclaimed which used to be spoken of only secretly and carefully in certain very private associations. The rising of the dead in a body of flesh and blood is contested and is replaced by the belief in the continuance of the human spirit which is able to manifest. Never was there a time when as many spiritualistic churches were founded as today — and never a time when occult knowledge was so popular and life in the cosmos so deeply studied. But a different question to consider is: Just how far the human interest is advanced. Is science — as far as physical science is concerned — and the understanding of spiritual knowledge moving in the same direction and at the same time reaching the same height of development and evolution. It is quite obvious that the human brain tries to imitate his Creator, as far as the atom energy is concerned. You have to realise, if you consider it in the light of unveiled Divine Mysteries, that the veil is lifted higher and that God gave permission to go on disclosing further truths of life in the cosmos. The human being probably goes too far in his unquenchable thirst for new explanations. The explosions which are generated in the spaces are possibly wrong and cause disturbances in your solar system. Your own solar system is viewed from the infinite cosmos with its thousands and thousands of times thousands of solar systems however immense this upheaval may appear lo be — similar to a small watch with all its wheels in good order. But an artificial satellite, if introduced into this clockwork, is something unasked for and unwanted — just as a minute particle in your wristwatch is unwanted and stops its regular working. If you consider that a thunderstorm (which has after all room enough in the air) is very often connected with earthquakes and even volcanic eruptions, it may be concluded that the world of a solar-system is highly sensitive and that the earth, on which you are living, will surely feel the repercussions of these man-made disturbances. The study of (he planets which rotate round the sun of this system has disclosed that the life of every human being is influenced by the position of these planets at the exact time of birth. The outer form of the head. the body, lingers, the lines in his palm. vertebrae are (lie mirror of his inner being, his spirit. The aura, which surrounds his body, defines by its form and its colors (lie present state of his health and his evolution. It makes it possible for invisible spirits to realise all his good and evil of previous incarnations. This is also the case with the earth, as with human beings. The earth does not change in the eyes of the people, but still, there are continuous combustions which accompany volcanic eruptions and earthquakes: rivers overflow, dry up or return to their former banks. In the great oceans are places where the bottom is so deep that a whole town with skyscrapers could disappear like a grain of sand. Scientists assert that extremely deep submarine ravines and chasms encircle nearly all the continents. Careless experiments may cause these chasms to extend and deepen and may cause continents to collapse. This may happen to the earth. Will you then wonder, when you are told, the Day of the Last Judgement is close at hand! Nothing is able to stop the human spirit to suffer this Divine Ordeal. Nothing and nobody escapes the Eyes of God, whether living on earth as a human being or as a spirit in the cosmos. Only those of good intentions and filled with love can expect God's compassion. The century of the atom, in which you are now living, and the knowledge which (he world has received about Spiritual Truths, are culminating points of science and Truth. Here you are close to the Highest and all reveals that the period of the splitting of the atom will be the last period of the existence of this earth. Prophecies, which were given centuries ago, will be fulfilled now, and nobody is able to stop these, because the Laws of Evolution were fixed at the time when God created this earth.
AMEN.
Dear Reader,

You have heard many a truth about the existence and the life of the spirits in the cosmos and on the planets as reincarnated beings, but also many wrong opinions. Already some four centuries B.C. there was strife without end about the existence of a spirit in the human body. There was also a seeking for truth about the movements of the heavenly bodies — the sun and the earth — the fluctuation of the temperature — thunder and lightning — earthquakes — and about life after death — of morality as the ideal mode of living. Questions were asked: Do all the things we see in the atmosphere rotate around the earth? The Greeks began to doubt their mythology: Are there really many gods and goddesses? All the statues of stone we pray to remain cold and mute to our prayer. Perhaps there is only One God who is responsible for all that exists! Perhaps life in the human body is a life-force, a spirit, created by this One God! Is He the cause of all our actions? Is the human being of flesh and blood an intelligence? But not all carnal creatures are intelligent! Might it be possible that in each creature be a leader or a guide? Something invisible? Something that may depart from the body after death and remain alive waiting for the opportunity to reincarnate in another body of flesh and blood? The primitive life-force of plants and animals might possibly develop to become a human being, who may, after many good incarnations, ascend to be a real servant of the Creator who created him, the plants, animals and human beings. Perhaps they belong to the earth because they are mortal — they decay to dust or matter and become food for other living bodies. We exist on earth as living human beings — possibly the spirit which lives in us is our own Self? As we speak, our vocal cords vibrate, our mouth and lips move, but could it be the intelligence, the spirit which dwells in the body? — which thinks, which expresses its feeling and thoughts which influences the human body? Everything the body does is possibly directed by the will of the intelligence, through the will of the spirit? And if we accept this, we also accept that we are spirit, an invisible intelligence which is, according to its evolution, either good or bad. Such ideas were expressed in the philosophies of Socrates Plato and other Greek philosophers — four centuries before the coming of Jesus these philosophers were seeking to find the truth. After Jesus, followed the proclamation of the Gospels. But a mystic veil was spread around these gospels and the church leaders of those times found it important to obscure the truth about the spirit being alive after the death of the body — there fore they insisted that the human spirit after the death of the body will sleep in the cold grave, to be born again on the Last Judgement in this dead body, to rise in flesh and blood and receive the Last Ordeal. Some influence of the old Jewish worship left its mark on the new religion, and even today — in the twentieth century of enlightenment — you still find some of these Jewish principles. For instance, the parable of the Pharisees. The Samaritans were the protestants of those times. And in later centuries the struggle between truth and untruth has continued. Prophets — messengers of God — came to earth, slowly to remove the veil that covers truth — for the benefit of those reincarnated spirits living on earth. But there
