Dear Reader,

In a previous message you heard about the process of evolution and the various spheres of evolution through which the reincarnated human spirits have to pass. A person, seeking the Light of Truth, may realise that a vibrating force is present in the cosmos which radiates into the various evolutionary spheres of this earth. In some societies this force is called "spirit". This word means the invisible, inward living force, which governs the universe. In another combination of thought this force is called "cosmos". In spiritualistic conception "spirit" means the invisible entity which leads, rules, and

directs the human body. All those explanations are good — the meaning correct — but no earthly language has the appropriate word to express the exact meaning completely. The thought gives the exact meaning, but the word does not always express this meaning adequately. A discarnated spirit expresses its thought through images — these are closer to the meaning than any word is able to explain. The vibrating invisible force of the cosmos is often called "spirit". God, as the Creator of this vibrating cosmic force, has put His Vibrations, His Vibrating Force, therein. The vibrating cosmos is thus a Divine Element, which gives life and strength to all the uncountable solar-systems of the universe. The earth, upon which you are living, is a small planet, a minute part only of your solar-system. Your earth is permeated by cosmic vibrations, and everything on this earth is under the influence of these vibrations: the grain of sand as well as minerals, plants, animals and human beings. Each earthly element contains some invisible elements which grow and pass through their own process of evolution in their own sphere of evolution. Call it: spark of life-force or human spirit. It is all invisible, but the reincarnated spirit is able to comprehend it as truth. Nobody is able to advance still higher. He is deaf and dumb to the higher, spiritual life, as long as his own spiritual evolution does not enable him, to see with his spiritual eyes through the misty veil, which divides spiritual life from life on earth. You have previously studied the process of evolution of the invisible, living elements. Now you have of necessity also to study the visible earthly elements as being the earthly material matter: the plants with their visible attributes: leaves, flowers and fruits: the animals with their hard bones, and the physical human body, inhabited by a spirit. The scientist looks for and studies the process of evolution in plants, animals and human beings. One refers to the descent of one animal from another of a particular type — the other refers to the human being as descending from a certain animal—another refers to the Bible — but none of them refer to the connection between the physical body and the indwelling spirit. Many people on earth accept the existence of a leading invisible spirit—but just as many reject this theory, although they have the "inward" feeling that science does not permit the acceptance of anything non-material or invisible. The reincarnated spirit—as human being—catches consciously or unawares from his spirit pictures which are conveyed by discarnated spirits. He translates those pictures into words, he tries as well as he possibly can to describe these pictures the way he sees them—but words are inadequate to express those pictures used by discarnated spirits. In connection with the forces which emanate from cosmic rays, you have the following example: If a person is to be a healer. what does this mean? It means that this person picks up cosmic forces and cosmic rays which he is able to transfer to the diseased organ of a human body. A healer may be compared to a battery. constantly charged by an electric current. Replace "electric current" by "cosmic vibration" and you have the same. With a healer, the mediators are spirits which transfer the vibrating cosmic forces into the body of this healer. Potentially, everybody is a healer. One has greater power than the other, therefore he achieves better results as a healer. You thus have an idea of the meaning of the word "healer". In former days, life on earth was less hectic and the human spirit was at peace. Science has its value for progress on earth—but it suppresses the use of spiritual forces, which lay dormant in everybody. There is not enough time for people to think and meditate or to study occult sciences — although there is much to be studied. The old Egyptians and the peoples of Babylon knew much more about those sciences than modern man. However, there is always the cosmos as a power-station, moving and vibrating around the world. The human being is always closely surrounded by discarnated spirits — sent by God, the Creator of this Cosmos — which are prepared to transfer these precious cosmic rays to healers to enable them to help suffering people, lighten their physical burden, take away the pain and heal the wounds of suffering. Here is an interesting example: Discarnated spirits have followed and protected some people who, as pioneers trekked through wild desert country. With them was a woman, who suddenly took very ill. There was no doctor, and no medicine was available. The woman appeared to be dying — artificial breathing was of no help. The burning sun, mosquito's, thirst and despair had affected all of them. Then suddenly, one of the party — with his last exertion—removed the woman's clothes and put his mouth on the part of the solar plexus and, with the conviction of putting new life into the woman, forced his breath into her body. Wonder of all, and more wonder — the woman opened her eyes, quietly composed herself, and asked "Where have I been?" She got up, as if awakening from a deep sleep — the party went on its way. The woman has lived for many years after this event. What had happened? The chance - healer transferred his cosmic healing power to the sick woman. The discarnated spirits around him gave him the inspiration to heal her. Whilst he transferred his own spiritual strength to the woman, he received, through the help of spirits, new cosmic powers. His own physical health was not impaired and since, he has healed many people. Healing power is, like many other invisible forces, an influence of the vibrating cosmos. With the help of discarnated leader - and protector - spirits (also called Angels) living around us. powers are transferred to the healer — and even to people who are not healers. Everybody has the power to help people in physical trouble to ease their suffering. Anybody who believes in the cosmic forces, who is convinced that invisible entities exist, always ready and prepared to help, all those who are of good intentions, are filled with love and kindness, willing to help their neighbors — all those have permission from God to draw out of the invisible world new strength to use for the benefit of those in need.

AMEN.
Dear Reader,



Considering the bonds of friendship which unite people, one might wonder why occasionally something happens between man and woman which is called "love at first sight". But it might just happen that, at the very moment when they first meet, both feel a distinct antipathy. It is remarkable how often true sympathy or genuine antipathy are felt by both partners. Here then the spiritual radiation plays its part. If the radiation of the one is fine and sensitive and the radiation of the other is coarse and callous, the result will be a feeling of antipathy, and these two people will feel repulsion — just as two positive electric poles repel each other, but one positive and one negative pole attract each other. A human being also has either a positive or a negative radiation or polarization — and this is nothing new — it was already known to the Pharaohs of old Egypt, 4000-3000 years B.C. If husband and wife are either both positive or both negative in their radiation, the marriage bond will not last and sooner or later both will feel very unhappy—and this unhappiness will last all their lives and each partner will be the cause of the others suffering. Now ask yourself this question: Would these partners, before they start their unhappy and wrong marriage — not feel the difference in their radiation? Did they not feel when they first met that they did not fit? That they felt a repulsion towards each other? Of course they felt this discrepancy. But then there came two feelings to the fore: the radiation of the spirit and the consideration of the human being. The spirit said "No", but the worldly materialistic consideration, the prospect of possessing another human being, the realization of material desire, as for instance, a comfortable life, material prosperity, even profusion, got the upper hand. The spirit yielded and was subdued for the desire for short-lived worldly happiness. Soon both of them feel the disillusion. The true feeling, the spiritual feeling, now gets the upper hand and the truth holds its own: two equal poles repel each other. Disappointment, repentance and despair result. The couple separate, or, if they remain together, because of a child or of the opinion of their neighbors, their life together will be a miserable and hard one. This condition has its origin in personal spiritual radiation. A beautiful body, a pretty dress, a dowry of the wife, or a high position of the husband made two people take an irresponsible step and lands them in unhappiness. They looked for transitory worldly happiness and did not realise that thereby they renounced spiritual values and spiritual wellbeing. A person does not know himself. Instead of trying to know himself, he looks for amusement, even dissipation. He does not realise the seriousness of life, only seeks for mundane satisfaction and all things material which he can possibly attain — pleasure in physical love, pursuit of money, wealth and enjoyment. For this pursuit he might forfeit everything — his parents, his teachers and his friends, who are experienced and are willing to help by their counsel. He refuses all counsel because worldly life has got its hold on him with its physical and material abundance. All this he wants to enjoy—craves enjoyment. He feels only the call of the body and scorns the call of the spirit. '0 Duality of Life!" How many people have perished on earth? How much wrong has one person caused others? How many youngsters felt old and weary before their time? How many people, growing old, regret the way they spent their lives? How much suffering young men, or even older ones, cause women? How many women do not feel sorry for the men whose hearts they broke? Grown old, they feel convinced that their life on earth has been useless. There was a mission for them to fulfill in their lifetime which has not been done. The peace and quiet, due to old people, avoids them. Now they wait for death—repenting, uneasy and restless. Just as they have been all their lives, will they pass over into the spiritworld ,to live there in the same old way as on earth. Realising this in the beyond, they might hope to gain calm and peace by a new life on earth and therefore will ask for a new reincarnation as soon as possible. Now they are reborn on earth. Subconsciously, the unrest still remains in them Their life is difficult and suffering is the result. The more suffering they have overcome, the more resigned will they feel. Unaware, they now shrink back from the urge of doing wrong to other people. Their life becomes more valuable and when old age comes to them this time, they feel restful, composed and tranquil. With confidence they await the time for their return to the universe. Now they feel more at home there, their vibrations become finer and clearer, and they are happy in their new condition. Their last incarnation refined their vibration and enabled them to accommodate themselves to the purified cosmos rays. They have lived in a state of harmony during their last incarnation, with higher cosmic rays — and during life they were attracted to people of the same spiritual vibrations as their own. They realised their duties and never asked for their rights on earth. Such is the development of all human spirits — all of those who are not corrupt and who desire to find the way to above. Always higher, always better, always with finer vibrations — and at last able to reach the Light of the Lord, the Creator, the Father of everyone and everything — there to radiate the reflection of the Divine Fountain of Light and Truth. In this message you will find the key to a life on earth, happy and fortunate. Test the quality of your vibrations, seek the type of people with whose vibrations you are in harmony. Avoid mixing with people whose vibrations repel you. And if you cannot avoid such people — on account of family ties — try to teach them the Laws of Vibration: from the Divine Light, from the Cosmos—the vibrations and the polarization of the individual person—whom you call a "human being", but who is actually the "immortal spirit", which is reincarnated on earth in a mortal body. As you succeed, do not think only about your own happiness, your own purification, but try also to show others the path to self-knowledge and happiness, on earth as well as in the Universe.
AMEN.
Dear Reader,

Have you ever considered the question: Is the reincarnated spirit conscious of the condition of life in the cosmos? If a person were conscious of it, he would never be desirous for the possession of temporal worldly goods and enjoyments. If you watch your neighbour and, even better, watch yourself, you will notice a diversity of people, who are, as far as worldly possessions go, very different from the average crowd. Talk to various people of the same age and you will observe that their eyes glitter with thirst for pleasure and desire for worldly and material riches, whilst there are a few others who will tell you that they are quite content with their fate and have not the slightest desire for excessive material goods. Among these two extremes are the people who, in larger or lesser degree, long for worldly allurements. You will find sensualists in all spheres of society, even in highly educated people. You find them among artisans and intellectuals, young and old, rich and poor, learned and unlearned people. Maybe you will discover that school learning is not a certificate of honor, of virtue or of morality, and that man's virtues are not the result of learning, but of his spiritual condition. Maybe you come to the conclusion that vices, shortcomings, lack of tact, lack of love for fellow-beings, of civility, of sense of honor, of sacrifice, is found among people of all ranks and is difficult to erase by parents, teachers or friends. But you can well realise that a man's character changes through experience, through suffering and struggle. You are often astonished about the metamorphosis of someone you have not seen for ten or twenty years. Twenty years ago this man was quick-tempered, jealous, envious -- he was a money grabber, who cheated people for his own advantage. Twenty years later you find him an honest man he takes the best care of his wife and family, tries to repair the wrongs of his past. Again there are others who, after twenty years of their life, have not changed, have not improved, hate their neighbors, love nobody — who lament because they are unable to "pick forbidden fruits", arc jealous and vindictive. What causes this difference between people? The answer does not need a long explanation — the whole answer is said in three words: "difference in evolution", or, in other words: either the will to rise, to become a better human being — or, the obstinate refusal to change. One reincarnated human spirit evolves steadily, does his utmost to become acquainted with the Laws of God, submits easily to the Divine Will, undergoes with submission his purification, and advances quickly on the path to the goal, the spirit life. The other one is like a fruit on a tree, which does not get sufficient sunshine and cannot ripen. He fights everything that is done for him, for his well-being, his health, his happiness, his spiritual uplift on earth and in the hereafter. He dries up, he hardens — his spirit also dries up, is like a weed in the human garden, which is to be destroyed — root and all — and burnt. All types of human beings pass over into the cosmos when their time arrives. There they find themselves free of their human body, relieved of their physical needs — like a tree without leaves in wintertime — amongst their brothers on the planet to which they are allotted to live, according to their degree of evolution. At first they are confused but soon full consciousness returns and they behave just as they did on earth, during their lives as reincarnated human beings. What luggage did they take along with them into the cosmos. into the spiritworld? Do not assume that every human spirit, passing over into the invisible world, goes straight up to live in the Divine Father house — in the Light of God, in Eternity. Do you really believe that the voluptuary, he who ravished so many women — that the drunkard, the glutton, the materialist, who did material and spiritual damage to many people—or that those who lived their first incarnation as a human being on earth and did not learn much — will come to live together with all other spirits — whether of low or of high evolution and purification? "In the House of Our Father are many mansions" is a symbolic expression for the various spheres of evolution in the cosmos. Replace "sphere of evolution" by "planet" and realise that each sphere is inhabited by spirits of the same degree of evolution, that — although spirits of higher evolutions may descend to lower spheres, never may spirits of low evolution ascend to higher spheres to render the atmosphere there dim and turbid. Remember the laws of radiation and vibration. The cosmos is permeated by Divine cosmic rays and each ray has its own vibration. Each spirit may be compared to a certain ray and has its own vibration. The lower the evolution, the coarser the vibration — the higher the evolution, the finer is the vibration. To reach certain spheres the spirit must be able to tune its own vibration to those of the special sphere it wants to reach. If the spirit is not able to tune in, this sphere will be impossible for this spirit to reach. Later — after further experience and evolution—the vibration will refine and the spirit will be able to reach those higher spheres and will be at home there. The question was: As the spirit passes over, what does it take with it into the cosmos? Nothing of all its material possessions, nothing at all — only the memory of all the good and evil committed on earth, the memory of joys and sorrows. Just as the life on earth, so will be the spirit-life in the cosmos — neither better nor worse. The spirit keeps its character, virtues and short-comings — believes the same in the cosmos as it did on earth as a human being. If its life on earth was spent in darkness, life in the cosmos will also be in darkness. What was refused on earth will also be refused in the cosmos. If the human being is primitive and stands on a low rung of the ladder of evolution, the spirit will also be primitive. If the human being is sufficiently evolved, he will know later, as spirit, what he did not always know as a human being, where he failed on earth. A low spirit, which does not wish to purify, will ask as soon as possible for a reincarnation to relive a life of pleasure and debauchery. A spirit which wants to purify, but whose radiation is not yet clear, and whose vibrations are still coarse, will ask for quick reincarnation, but now for the chance to purify further and to become a better being. He hopes to be inspirited by his guide and the help of his spirit friends to show him the way to purification during his new life on earth. He will try his best—during this new

life as reincarnated spirit—lo seek truth, to refine his vibrations and to clear his radiation. He will be able to climb up to a higher, clearer cosmic sphere. As spirit he knows that experience, trials and struggles direct the road to follow during his life on earth as human being, and that this path is the shortest path for him to liberation from further reincarnations to reach the "Haven of Eternal Bliss".


AMEN.
Dear Reader,

It is necessary to clarify the position of doubt about the many divergent lines of thought which divide theosophy, philosophy and spiritualism. Most groups of the above - mentioned accept the continuance of the spirit after the death of the human body — most of them accept also the process of reincarnation and the Law of Karma. Sonic accept this truth because it is the basis of most creeds; others accept it because the Scriptures confirm it; still others, because prophets and Leaders of High Creeds proclaim it. And there are even those who believe it because it is their own innermost conviction. Creeds, theosophic, philosophic and spiritualistic communities accept reincarnation and the Laws of Karma. It was in the Middle Ages, when all who believed these theories, were stigmatized as sorcerers or heretics and burnt on the stake. Some such institutions maintain, even today, that (here exist only two planes where spirits live: the earth plane and the cosmos plane. They teach that the spirit is liberated after the death of the body and returns to the cosmos to unite with all the other liberated spirits and moves around as lie pleases. They assume that there is only one spiritual plane in the cosmos — no more. According to this theory, there is no evolution. The leader spirits, which manifest at spiritualistic séances, tell us that the human spirit continually tries for purification and evolution. It follows that, if you accept this theory, there must be many planes. Do not throw stones at those who proclaim only part of the trutli, because they are people who only understand part of it. Later, after more spiritual purification, they will be able to understand the whole truth. That is the result of their evolution. The divergent lines of theosophy, philosophy and spiritualism are a necessity. Each has its adherents and believers. Nobody can be forced to accept theories as truth or to proclaim them, if he disbelieves them. Nothing happens before the right time — just as no human spirit can leave his body before the fixed time. And the goal of each and all of these theories is: To teach reincarnated spirits what is good and what is evil: what is his right and what is his duty: what righteousness, justice, truth, love and faithfulness mean: how he must live as human being to purify as spirit and become worthy to pass through the Gates to Eternal Bliss. Each creed collects people of an equal conviction and of equal spiritual evolution. They will accept and confirm what formerly they rejected, when the time arrives, that they will be able to understand new truths. They will be called apostates in some communities and some churches will stigmatize them as heretics, heathens or sinners. A child becomes a member of a certain church by the will of his parents; but he changes later to another church where he feels more at home if he does not feel satisfied with the church of his parents. Is he now a prodigal son, a sinner or a heretic? No. He only became a better spirit because he found new truths which formerly he could not understand. He can only say: "Previously I made a mistake", or "Now my eyes are opened" and "Now I feel more confident, more peace and calm". Does he renounce the faith of his father? No. Because his father, whose spirit follows him through life, shows his descendants the way of truth and is happy when the offspring purify and evolve. Has a person chosen the wrong path if he should belong to a certain philosophy and changes to another trend which spreads greater truths and where he feels more assured? Oh! No. The human spirit evolves develops and ascends. He now realises truth. which previously he did not understand — and that is all. Are the Jews, who 2000 years ago followed Christ and became the harbingers of the Christian Creed, heretics and sinners because they left their synagogues and became believers in Christ? Are Socrates, Plato and their followers heretics and sinners because they attacked idolatry and reinstated the belief in the One God? Was Gautama Buddha a heretic or a sinner because he preached suffering and reincarnation? Is Mohammed an apostate because he and his followers destroyed the idols in Mecca and preached the Creed of the One God instead? Was Joan of Arc a heretic and a sinner because she followed the call of the Voice of God to take arms and fight? Are all these great personages, who in the annals of the cosmos are recorded as "Holy Spirits", sinners, heretics or apostates? No. Sinners, heretics and apostates are those who renounce the Creator, who change from a person of good intentions to base ways, people who lead base and evil lives in repeated reincarnations, who serve only the golden calf, look for earthly possessions, luxury and debauchery, do damage to their neighbors and do not even hesitate to commit murder in order to increase their temporal earthly comfort and property. You will conclude, if you check all these different conceptions in regard to sects and creeds, differences in theosophy, philosophy and even spiritualistic opinions, that there are many spiritual planes even here on earth and that each individual of humanity belongs to a certain spiritual plane. Difference of opinion about spiritualistic truths is proof that evolution plays a large part and that there are different spheres on earth for human spirits. This is not only the case among reincarnated spirits on earth hut also among spirits in the invisible worlds. A discarnated spirit knows only what its grade of evolution — the spiritual plane on which it lives — permits it to know and to understand. Such a spirit can impart to a human being, who lives on earth, what it understands as truth. The human being on earth as well accepts as truth only as much as his evolution permits him to understand. This is accepted to be proof of the fact that there are many spiritual planes on earth as well as in the cosmos.

AMEN.
