It is said that the people on earth are now living in the time of "Light and Civilization". When you realise how far science has developed to find experimental proof for things which belong to the "Unknown"; when you realise further how far human intelligence has succeeded in the knowledge of the human body — in the treatment of diseases — with how much confidence and daring surgeons perform operations and replace diseased parts of the body by artificial ones — how medical science differentiates between physical and mental diseases; then you feel real admiration for the advancement of science. But science is at an absolute loss in regard to understanding spiritual organs, because science accepts as evidence only concrete proof, which can be demonstrated and repeatedly demonstrated and can be seen and felt. Sounds are already a doubtful concern for the scientist, because they can be heard but not seen, and are therefore mostly valued as hallucination, or registered as imagination of a mentally disturbed brain. Science, with its physical stipulations, now confronts philosophy, and it is marvelous to note that as much as science progresses, philosophy follows suit and reveals more and newer truths and has—in the time of "Light and Civilization"—reached far higher levels, alongside of science. You consult your Holy Books and you notice how much more primitive people were about five thousand years ago. It was quite normal at that time for a father to have relations with his daughter —morale was something unknown to them; and you need not even go back as far as this to recognize that respect for other people's possessions was quite unknown and that proprietary rights were never acknowledged. Moses had to come to formulate the basis of right and of duty for the human society to co-operate. Pedicles had to come to compile the laws of the government. Meanwhile, Zoroaster, Gautama Buddha, Jesus and Mohammed also appeared to reveal spiritual laws and the Laws of God. These first laws, which Moses proclaimed, were Spiritual Laws, which his own people were not able to comprehend in their primitive state. He was therefore compelled to give them human laws, which they were able to understand and to obey, and which were the basis for later secular laws. Pedicles formed, in old Athens, a legislation founded on human and spiritual interests — this was about 500-400 years B.C. Zoroaster preached a Creed in Persia, which was based on the knowledge of good and evil. In India, Gautama Buddha's Creed has as its foundation the Laws of Reincarnation of the human spirit and the Laws of Karma, which laws explain why all human spirits have to reincarnate repeatedly until they have atoned, through physical and mental suffering, for all their sins and evil-doings. Jesus, too, mentioned reincarnation and taught morale through "Love and Peace". Mohammed emphasized the One-ness of God, morale, love and bliss. ' The Spiritualistic Philosophy has, during the last century, interpreted and elucidated the Laws of God, and has explained them clearly and given many examples. The past — from the oldest times—has been shown by the Spiritualistic Philosophy to be in accordance with the spiritual development of the people concerned, and that every condition is adjusted to the comprehension of human understanding. The Spiritualistic Philosophy is the mouth- piece of perfected and purified spirits from the spiritworld, which have reached the Plane of Spiritual Bliss, and which communicate to show people on earth the shortest possible road to purification —for the ultimate goal, to enter the Light of God. This is "Spiritual Philosophy" — in opposition to materialistic philosophy. The human being is more attracted by this materialistic philosophy, on account of his urge for a carefree, comfortable and enjoyable life. Spiritualistic Philosophy is spiritually adjusted and aims more for the blessings of the spirit, which — being of good intentions — may live eternally, than for the satisfaction of the physical human body, which has only a temporary life and is doomed to return and to blend with the earth-matter, whence it original. It is sad for perfected spirits from the cosmos to realise that, even in this century of "Enlightenment and Civilization" — as human people like to call it — everything is concerned with the physical well-being, and hardly anything is done for spiritual development. Do not understand this to mean that people on earth have to be ecclesiastical and churchy — but that they have to consider their spiritual needs more profoundly. The human body is necessary for the time the spirit is living within — but this time is very short. It is necessary for medical science to exert itself to keep this body in good health, because health makes it easier for the spirit to work for the process of repentance of previous imperfections; but it is even more necessary to further the needs of the spirit, because this spirit — during its imprisonment in the human body — might thus be less open to the influence of evil and vice, which assail it on earth, and therefore — free of trouble and vexation — might sooner attain Life Eternal. Science and Spiritual Philosophy have always developed simultaneously—the one for the well-being of the physical body — the other for the well-being of the fluidic spirit, which is living within this body. Today, it is more necessary than ever for science and Spiritual Philosophy to understand one another, that they develop in the same direction and work in conformity — the one for the welfare of the body — the other for the welfare of the spirit. Those reincarnated spirits, which work in the service of either science or materialistic philosophy should, therefore, study every- thing that is created: minerals, as well as plants and animals, and also study the human being, your fellow-being. Find out your own opinion, your own judgement in your association with your neighbors, in your application of morale, your love for plants and animals, your sensitiveness for colors, tunes and scents — whether you feel love and loving-kindness for your fellow-beings, for your cat and your dog — whether you want to help unfortunate people in their need and their distress — whether you want to comfort sick people or those un-provided for, or want to forgive those who wronged you. Draw your conclusion, decide what good your mind harbours and what shortcomings — realise your good points, but also realise in what you are still wanting; define your degree of wisdom — in short: learn to know yourself as spirit. If you feel like it, study the minerals. Realise that science has established them, the minerals, to consist of atoms and molecules — that every minute sub-division either attracts or repels the others, according to their positive or negative charge. Realise that minerals change their inner and their outer structure — that they grow and modify — that the minute invisible sub-divisions split and divide and multiply — and you will be satisfied that minerals are alive. If you feel like it and have sufficient patience, study the plants. Observe how, from a singular seed (some of them hardly visible) a stem grows, which branches out and develops leaves, flowers and fruits, and more branches develop and grow and show their life-force. Also observe the inner formation, the building of cells and vessels, wherewith to absorb water and nourishment from the soil and from the air — observe how those cells develop, how they always divide and multiply — how the old cells decay and young ones develop. Look at their colors, breathe their fragrance, taste the fruit — and you realise that plants are alive. When you have studied all this and still feel like it, start with the study of the animals — the human being included — and still greater miracles will be disclosed to you. The physical human beings and the animals are alive, just as plants and minerals. Muscles, bones and skin, and the intestines too, consist also of invisible minute cells with negative-positive, or positive-negative points. They, too, either attract or repel one another as far as their reciprocal poles permit. They multiply by division — new cells grow and old ones decay. But life is in each single one of them, and the whole forms a world of cells, of living entities. The blood, too, consists of innumerable small cells — a whole living world in itself. All this beauty and perfection shows the process of evolution, which science has accomplished to detect — and still tries to find new details, new revelations, about the life-process of minerals, plants, animals and human beings. Something which science is unable to find out is: "What is Life?" What is the origin of a life which so wonderfully weal's itself? It is a closed mystery for science — as hag as science infuses to accept the truth about the unknown: the life-force, existing in everything, which is revealed through the Spiritualistic Philosophy, through the Spirits of God. The time is ripe, that those Voices from the Cosmos must also be heard by science and that their Revelations about the Truth have to be put on record. Many scientists have already realised that the Universe is permeated by cosmic rays — that those cosmic rays are the bearer of creative forces. May they soon experience that "Everything is Life" — that, according to their type and their degree of evolution, "sparks of life" and "life-force" exist, which work themselves gradually up to spirits — furnished with an Atom of God — which are endowed with reason, have a soul, which harbours all experience, wisdom and knowledge — that many reincarnations are necessary to rise and to become a perfected spirit — that struggle, suffering and sorrow are the road to evolution, which dispels evil sad vices and attracts virtues and goodness — that the goal of this whole process is: Eternal Spiritual Life in the Light of God". Science and Spiritualistic Philosophy together are the amalgamation of knowledge and wisdom, which are parts of God. Who created all. When—or as soon as — Science and the Spiritualistic Philosophy work together, the true "Century of Life and Culture" has arrived.
The human being asks himself many questions — during his life on earth — and these questions about life with its struggles, its sorrows and sufferings, lead him sometimes into a state of unintentional meditation. It happens to everyone during his daily work that he considers certain spiritual topics. He does his work quite automatically whilst in such a state, being far away from earthly concerns. He hears no noise around him, no voice, no clock, and returns to the ordinary day with a shock — the result of some unexpected disturbance, or else as if awakening from deep sleep. One does not always need a quiet corner or a comfortable low chair for meditation to free oneself from all earthly thoughts. This is a good practice, but often the person falls asleep instead of meditating. He might be shown images during his sleep — his spirit might even leave the body — some people remember afterwards these visions or communications, which they have received from the cosmos—but most people have no remembrance at all and believe these practices to be quite useless. He, in this kind of sleep, is also in danger of being incorporated by evil spirits instead of good ones and is perhaps subjected to foolish and thoughtless actions. It is therefore desirable, when meditating, not to fall asleep, but to remain conscious of visions and communications. And what conclusions have you to draw now? That everybody, who is gifted with some sense, is able to reach such a state of meditation, that meditation is the first step to mediumship, because it opens the door for communications from the spiritworld. There are two modes of meditation if you want to be successful: 1. You withdraw unto yourself and think about a certain person or about a certain topic. When you see this person or this topic alive and visible in yourself, you release this image, which your inner self produced and feel convinced that it will rise into the cosmos — you do not think any more about it, but wait for images or communications which will come to you. 2. You withdraw into yourself. If you do not want to meditate on a certain person or a certain idea, make your brain vacant, exclude all worldly thoughts, concentrate upon your leader spirit, wait until thoughts or images infiltrate your completely vacant brain. You will receive thoughts, images or inspirations, which are important for your life counsels and advice — which you might think to be your own thoughts. But images and thoughts which you receive in this way are not your own thoughts — you obtain them from the spiritworld and you will learn and be convinced that you arc able to sec faces, although your eyes are closed. These faces are from spirits, which manifest in the form in which they have lived on earth. Among them may be relatives of yours, from this or from former lives, to bring you the proof that the deceased are alive in the cosmos, that you must not mourn for those who
have led a good life on earth .because they are so much happier in the spiritworld than they have ever been on earth as a human being. They might also bring you a likeness of others — relatives or friends — who did not lead a satisfactory life on earth, and those images might show them in the state of grief and sadness in which they are now living. Should you be clairaudient, they might tell you about it in a small voice, and if you do not possess this type of mediumship, they will try to express themselves by images. In this way you learn that. unknowingly, you are clairvoyant, and that this is only the beginning of an ever growing faculty of clairvoyance, and if you also perceive the small voice which gives you a message at that moment, you are also a telepathic medium. All mediumship starts through meditation, withdrawal, contemplating certain circumstances and certain persons, and also with concentration upon your leader spirit. Concentration upon your leader-spirit attracts the protective spirits, and they help you to overcome the influence of low and unwanted spirits. You cannot free yourself from earth-radiation and from the influence of evil unless you trust God, trust and believe in the Christspirit and in the Highest Holy Spirit. This is the reason why there are two types of mediums: 1. Mediums, who receive only communications about material affairs of the earthly life of people and their physical wishes. 2. Mediums, who receive messages which concern spiritual interests and the welfare of the spirit which temporarily inhabits the human body. The first type of medium proves that life continues after the death of the physical body. Their messages are of a material type, more like gypsy-predictions. They serve spirits on lower planes which are not yet sufficiently evolved to understand the needs of spiritual beings. They care more for his cravings for fortune and riches, enjoyment and other physical requests, but do not mention any struggles and difficulties to which the human being is subject in order to gain wisdom and purification. The second type of medium proves with more conviction that death does not exist. They insist that the body is made of physical material and that every human body — after the short time of its life on earth — has to return to the soil, the material matter of its origin — but that the spirit, which inhabits this body, belongs to life in the cosmos — that this spirit harbours an Atom of God which struggles and suffers to purify and to gain wisdom, and ultimately to return to the Light of God, whence it originated and whither it has to return, because this is the House of its Father, where it belongs. The abode on earth in a human body is only a short journey for the spirit, with many impediments, many obstacles, to gain all kinds of experiences, knowledge of himself and of other human beings and also to gain wisdom. Is the one type more valuable than the other one? Both are necessary and of great value; the first leads the way to the second. When a human being grows up, the whole life is awaiting him: life calls, the earth calls — youth wants to live its own life — and this is also a mission, which the reincarnated spirit has to fulfil. Many spirits return to earth with the express purpose to purify, but also to give spirits in the cosmos a chance to start a new process of reincarnation, just to try — as they do — to improve and to become more evolved spirits and which in their turn again give other spirits a chance to do as they did: reincarnate, improve, gain wisdom and approach closer to the Light of God. Life has a mission for every reincarnated human spirit. The one reincarnates — in his first and lower phases — to become acquainted with the earth. He is still insecure and under the influence of evil powers and works under this evil influence. He only aims at building for himself a happy life on earth. He tries to reach a high standard — social and commercial — to enjoy his life — and he is prepared to reach this goal — to deceive his fellow-beings and to make their souls suffer, to rouse their feelings of spite, envy, strife, jealousy or hate. If lie is not successful in his plans, he causes his own soul to suffer and to develop other shortcomings. Life hardens him and makes him grow stronger. In the following reincarnations he has to suffer spiritually, therewith to atone for his former evil actions, for the evil he did to his neighbors. If he is of good intentions he will now start to purify and later to rise and reach the legions of God's Spirits. The time will come for him to be reborn anew, and in this new reincarnation he will be able to rise to a still higher sphere of evolution. He already shows — early in this new life-signs of love for his parents and reverence for elder people generally. He feels pity for unfortunate persons. He is humble and charitable, truthful and just and has a highly developed notion of morality, and his conscience brings him back to the right track, even if he occasionally takes a wrong turning. This new life is far more spiritually adjusted than materially adjusted, and he works far more often for the good of his fellow- beings than for his own affairs. He acts this way without any consideration — he follows the urge of his spirit which is stronger than the urge of his body-the urge of his human hood. This reincarnation when finished — gave him knowledge of mankind and made him gain wisdom, gave him determination and will-power. He accomplished his mission on earth and served the concerns of his spirit more than those of his human hood. When a human spirit has reached this plane of evolution, and if he is gifted with mediumship, lie receives through his own spiritual forces and through inspirations and messages from spirits of his own spiritual spheres and even of higher spheres, more messages with which to encourage his fellow-beings to higher morality, to deeper love for neighbors, to moral and material charity, to compassion for those who wronged them. All in all, his life is given to serve humanity; he follows the path which the Spirit of Christ has trodden in His many reincarnations on earth, and he thus furthers the aim: "Peace on Earth among all people of good intentions". What does he care for a short-lived happy life, if this does not conform to the needs of his spirit? What necessity is there to find out what awaits them on earth? What necessity is there to enlighten them about the suffering and the struggling in store for them? What necessity is there to let people know beforehand, to inform them about future grief and afflictions? After all: everyone returns to earth to pay for his shortcomings and evil deeds of former lives — nobody can change the least bit of it. A spirit has to suffer what he has asked for his atonement before he started his new reincarnation, and only this can help him to rise and to approach the Light of God. His earthly life runs as if by his own free will and his own choice — as he wanted it to be — and all good spirits of the cosmos help and assist him to pass through his many difficulties up to the finish. He, who succeeds in removing this suffering, hinders the spirit to improve and to rise to a higher plane of evolution. Thus, he gave this spirit an evil turn and this will result in much suffering for himself, besides the feeling of deep repentance. But — trying to ease the sufferings of his fellow-men is spiritual charity — rightly done. True mediumship is trying to help others to find peace in their souls, to encourage them to good thoughts and good actions, and to suppress their lower inclinations — to give them good counsel and show them the road to spiritual peace and calmness — to prompt them to love their neighbors — to encourage them to spread brotherliness and peace amongst people — as well as to play their part for the welfare of humanity, of which he, too, is a link, On whatever plane of evolution a medium might be — whether his messages be of a material or a spiritual nature — all are of necessity important, though it is useless to give messages of spiritual wisdom to somebody who still adheres to earthly materialism and is unable to absorb the deeper meaning of this message — he can only take ii in and the seeds are planted, to germinate later. He, who is mediumistically incorporated by a spirit and announces his messages, knows that in earlier days he also has stood at the beginning of the ladder of advancement, that he too, has at that time served earthly physical affairs and neglected or ignored spiritual urges. By now he has evolved and reached mysticism. But, nevertheless, he respects those who still cling to the earth — knowing well that these people are to follow in his footsteps and, after the necessary time, will reach the point where he now stands: mysticism; and that they perhaps might serve spiritual concerns even better than he is able to do at present. The human spirit changes his convictions in most of his reincarnations, thus burning up today what he venerated in a former life, and consequently venerating today what previously he has burnt; just as some people cannot believe and adjust themselves to the teachings of a specific church and therefore turn to another church, which is more suitable for their spiritual requirements, Therefore, regard every type of mediumship according to the evolution of the medium concerned and his degree of estimating material and spiritual values. The time comes for everyone of "good will", when he — by his idealism, his wisdom and his mysticism — serves spiritual values better than human ones. You can start by tracing your own conscious and unconscious meditations, when you want to investigate your own standard of evolution and your receptivity of spiritual messages. Trace whether these inspirations which infiltrate you are of material or of spiritual value. When you realise them to be physical and materialistic, try to adjust your vibrations to those of your leader-spirit. The leader-spirit always belongs to a higher plane than you do. Try also to direct your meditations to spiritual matters. In this way you will gain new wisdom and will receive new revelations. A new path will henceforth be open to you which brings you closer to your spiritual home — your home in the cosmos, where Eternal Life is awaiting you — a life which you yourself prepare in accordance with your good and exemplary life on earth.
Life on earth remains an enigma for most people. The child struggles from birth onwards to wind its path through life. It starts with sickness and with care for the spirit, which is born in the child, which also has to struggle to adjust itself to life on earth and to a human body. The human being, who has realised these conditions, asks himself: Why this hard struggle, why so much worry and painful suffering? Why can we not climb up to the Light of God as spirits in the cosmos, in spirit-land, instead of having to endure all these difficulties here on earth? This question is nothing but an accusation which the human being in his ignorance hurls up to Heaven — therewith alleging Creation to be wrong and unfair — thus blaming and reproaching God. The human being does not realise that he himself created these conditions. Meanwhile, he complains and laments and leads a hard life here on earth. But whilst he thinks his life to be hard and unbearable, he does not yet understand the Laws of God and of Creation. He does not realise the fact that there is a reason for his life to be hard and unbearable, and that his struggles and sufferings are the result of a cause. He feels handicapped in his physical affairs and his social situation; he wants to reach a high social standing but is always disappointed and ends up by rebelling against society — and because he is unable to reach his goal, he becomes a discontented and seditious person; if he could have the management, everyone on earth would get equal income and possessions, and there would be no need for envy — no more jealousy or spite, no more egoism. Life on earth would no longer be a place of grief and tears, but a place of happiness, justice and peace. Thus he reasons and this only helps to push him deeper and deeper into the abyss. Why is he thus talking? Why does he not feel happy? Because he sees only the regards of his human hood — and never thinks about his purification and the improvement of his spirit. A human being, who thinks in such terms, is still primitive and has no other impulses but his own physical welfare. And when he — the primitive and still low evolved human spirit — succeeds in his greed for wealth and luxury, he usually succeeds, too, to acquire such vices as haughtiness and egoism. He takes to all kinds of physical amusements — he starts to drink and to gamble. He wallows in rich foods and all the wanton pleasures of night-life. There is no need for him to admire the beauty of nature, or to enjoy home and family-life. The peaceful atmosphere of a happy family has no attraction for him — to him only debauchery and lewdness are worth while. But all extravagance asks a high price. Sickness overcomes his physical body, prepares him for many years of bodily pain, which at last makes his soul suffer and repent. Later still, he feels disgust for his body and loathes this careless and extravagant life, which he has now left behind and which finally brought him only unrest, diseases and suffering. When he enters spirit-land — after a long illness — he still harbours feelings of remorse and repentance, and in the cosmos he feels just as unhappy as he did on earth. Everyone is reading the radiation of his reminiscences: repentance, self-reproach and remorse for a wasted reincarnation, which did not bring him any advancement for his life in the cosmos. He asks for a new reincarnation with hope and trust in the future and the firm resolution and determination to use this new life for betterment — this time to get the better of his low nature. He takes this determination with him into his new reincarnation as human being. He loves his father and mother and later on enjoys the mutual love of family life. He feels far happier in this new life than in the last one, although he still has to undergo anxiety, conflict and sufferings. He falls ill, as do the members of his family—there are moments of affliction which make his soul suffer. But he brought the resolution with him from the cosmos. which now gives him strength to bear all sorrows and difficulties. He does not complain but takes all tests and trials in his stride and thus conquers evil. He has no more hate for those who wronged him, but pity and compassion. He does not try to find a reason for all those happenings and does not remember anything of his former lives. The remembrance, though, is kept in his subconscious mind, in his soul, even if his spirit does not give him any information, as he is still of low evolution and has no memories of his former lives either. His leader-spirit would very much like to give his permission for this human being to have the treasury of his heart opened and allow him to browse in the book of remembrance. He would wish to let the unknown mysteries permeate this brain and to initiate him into the mysteries of his life as spirit. But the human being is only a temporal entity and his life on earth is so short that it is not worth the trouble to let Divine Truth enter. The human spirit, though, on account of this improved life, is entitled to a reward. But if he gets this reward on earth, how can he receive his crown in the spiritworld? The leader-spirit keeps quiet and does its very best to support this human being on his good road until the end, to keep him worthy for initiation—to show him the reasons for his various lives on earth, its obstacles and difficulties, to tell him about the Laws of God, of Creation, of Karma, etc., and also of the origin and the destination of the human spirit and its successive processes of evolution. One Divine Truth after the other permeates the human brain — slowly but surely. The human being comes into contact with persons who have gained wisdom, with initiated persons and adepts, and also read books which were given him mediumistically by High Spirits. All this stores wisdom in the human soul from which his spirit benefits. His spirit was not omniscient at birth and will not be omniscient at the passing over into the spiritworld. Only God is Omniscient, Highest Wisdom, Highest Truth and Highest Justice. But this human spirit, by the new gained wisdom — gained by the help of his human hood — approaches a step closer to the Wisdom of God — and the spiritual obscurity in which he was living is dispelled by the Light of God, which is Highest Wisdom. It usually takes several reincarnations for the human spirit to reach the sphere of the highest wisdom, which he is able to acquire on the earth plane. At that time, new feelings arise in his soul, and he not only feels the necessity and the driving force to perpetuate his wisdom — but this is actually his spiritual mission. It is an instruction which he has received from God to show his fellow beings the path which leads to the Light of God and to Eternal Bliss. This type of work is also coupled with difficulties. Soon enough he will be in conflict with a different ideology: with materialism. Materialism is the greed for earthly possessions: riches, wealth, abundance and pleasures. It is the struggle for physical concerns and is the reason for decay, self-reproach, spiritual suffering and remorse. Physical pleasures are of short duration and vanish with physical death. Materialism occurs only in human spirits of rather low standing, who still live in the "tunnel of evil" and have not yet realised the fact that God exists: who still live in darkness and have so far not realised the fact that somewhere Light exists: who are still ignorant and have not yet realised that wisdom exists and that they themselves are spirits. However, he, who has the will to substantiate his plans — which are actually God's Plans — follows up his road and accomplishes his mission. He has few followers, but — be his voice only "a voice in the wilderness", which few people are advanced enough to understand and to follow — the seeds of his teachings are planted in all souls who come to listen to him, although they might not be fully able to understand them. He quite realises that it is far more successful to promise the people on earth short material happiness instead of spiritual delights — but he knows just as well that these people, who still adhere so much to material life, are to change their ideas to a certain extent and then become more interested in spiritual values and in their spiritual future. Thus, the foundation of his actions is his great love for all creation: plants, animals and human beings. This love radiates from him to his fellow-beings, and he feels the reflection of this love radiating from them towards him. He realises, too, that if everybody on earth were filled with this love, neither jealousy nor envy, hate or vengeance could exist any longer, and that no future rebellion or war could then take place on earth. The Kingdom of God in all its Splendor would be manifest on earth — whilst earth now is a planet of suffering. All people would be united in dispelling evils and vices — and primitive ignorance of unknown Divine Truths and Divine Wisdom would be eliminated. Mankind would be a "Brotherhood of Love". But this prophet of spiritualistic wisdom preaches — as is always the case — against a wall of materialistic know-alls. The primitive human being will become heir to the possessions of his neighbour, even if by brutal force. He worships the golden calf, against which Moses had to battle about five thousand years ago. Many initiated spirits, which have lived in human bodies, leave this earth never to return because they have become too vulnerable and too sensitive to endure the base earthly radiation. Meanwhile, more and more primitive spirits arrive to become acquainted with earth — with her good and her evil, who — in their first incarnations — are obstacles for those who are living their last incarnation on earth. The golden calf still stands enthroned and is still worshipped by primitive and low spirits. These live in all social spheres. amongst all types of people because school-education gives them a chance to higher social positions, although it gives them neither insight and judgement, nor wisdom and virtues; it gives them neither spiritual idealism nor mysticism, but materialism and shortcomings, unless earthly possessions are given by God to a human entity to serve humanity by practicing brotherly love and benevolence. You, who are reading this message from the Highest Spheres, test your conscience and check whether you have harmed anybody by material greed, and whether all your earthly belongings are your legal due — earned by your own work or by gifts, or any other honest acquisition. If you do not feel sure about something, try to correct it — to regain the peace of your soul. And if you do not find anything incorrectly acquired, raise your voice to God and thank the spiritworld for the good inspirations they have brought you — because when you pass over into the cosmos and appear before God, you will be able to look right into His Eyes and you will receive His Blessing.
