AMEN.
Dear Reader,

In your language are many words to indicate the path, which reincarnated spirits gradually follow. All these words may be compared with those which you have been taught in your grammar lessons to be "degrees of comparison". In the process of spiritual purification which you experience during your successive incarnations, you have no knowledge of the degree you have reached, nor of the rising which life on earth brought you. When you consider the lives of the Prophets of the Christspirit, of other Leaders of High Creeds or some of the philosophers, you will find therein certain graduations: each phase is a truth, the expression of a virtue, as: love for your neighbour, practice of charity or benevolence — in a material as well as in a moral sense — a trust in God, which may grow into mysticism. Many words have several meanings, because a human being can only look with his physical eyes. The spirit sees things differently and is often in contradiction with the physical man. The reincarnated spirit is not always thinking or doing the same as the person in whom it is reincarnated. There is a duality — and it needs time and many reincarnations to reach maturity and to be able to blend into a co-ordination of feeling, thinking and of word and deed. The spirit itself may still be primitive and identify itself with the primitive principles of the human body. But, as much as the spirit — nourished and strengthened by experiences in its various reincarnations — evolves and unfolds, it will feel, think, talk and act now in a way different to the previous lives. The human body adjusts itself — during the incarnation — to the endeavors of the spirit. The external body is always the mirror, the radiation of the spirit. The mind, too, proportional to experience, learns many things. The brain is 'of physical material and is influenced by physical means. Earthly desires are effectual; physical desires are raised and a yearning develops to enjoy things material. A passion for luxury and a thirst for pleasure result, and the human person perishes under the influence of the radiation of the material earth. But a time comes when man realises the temporality, the transistorizes, the inconstancy and the mortality of all material pleasures. From now on there is a change. The physical yearning is satisfied; experience made man wiser and spirit and human body closer to each other. Harmony develops and now the spirit is able to bring its feelings, its thoughts, its words to the fore — the human person yields and gives his spirit the lead. How indifferent are most people towards belief and towards the Laws of God? How many people have not the least feeling of love towards their neighbour and live only for their own personal demands and satisfaction? How many people humiliate, deceive or cheat others? How many bring grief and sorrow to their fellow-beings? or ruin them — only to satisfy their own debauchery or amusements, or to increase their short-lived earthly possessions? Suddenly disaster overtakes them. They find a master to subdue them. Their life then is very difficult. Impotence of body and soul overwhelms them — suffering, struggle and troubles hit them. Slowly they recover. The spirit which lives in them has opened their eyes. They have begun to think, to talk and act with their spirit and no longer with their mind. Their physical body now radiates and makes them experience calmness, submission and confidence. They have started to venerate what they previously burnt. Humility and submission, respect for their fellow-men awakes in them. They now begin to help sick people to bear their lot, to cheer dejected people, to help those who are in need of either physical or psychical support, to bring courage and vigor to broken hearts. They will show those, who are "seekers of peace" the shortest path — having themselves passed through all the stages which those are still seeking. They know life and have traveled the path of "brotherly love". They now know the difference between those words which once they took as synonyms: belief, creed, spiritual love, compassion, brotherly love, charity, trust in God, mysticism, etc. Belief awoke in them, trust and faith in God developed. These two words are actually feeling and conviction, which took form and blended into the Great Symbol: Mysticism. But this mystic feeling is far above all earthly sectarian movements. It is the crystallization of everything noble and sublime and will blend as an Aureole of Love and Thankfulness with the Light of God.

AMEN.
Dear Reader,



It is only one step to turn from love to hate, and it is very difficult for people on earth to remain steadfastly on the path of love. Still, love is the only path leading to higher spiritual life. Why is there hate? Is it not the result of the human spirit's primitiveness? Hate Hares up quickest in primitive people. It is enough for them to misunderstand just one or the other word from what a person means and immediately they flare up and hate glitters in their eyes. Deed follows at once and vengeance is taken. What and how do they destroy? a word or an idea? They rage against everything in their reach. They set fire to institutions, schools, hospitals, churches. Works of art are demolished — altogether they have the mentality of a maniac let loose. When everything is quiet and calm, a primitive hawker or peddler will run amok with a glasscutter or a hacksaw and try to wound and mutilate people. If he enters a house where the people are absent, lie starts demolishing whatever is in his reach. Everything which the inhabitants love and cherish is carelessly thrown about and trampled upon. Closed cupboard doors are broken and family treasures, wedding presents and other carefully kept belongings are taken out and — in the attempt to use them to break doors or to force locks are broken to pieces. He takes away everything except if it is too hot or too heavy and the house is left in disastrous disorder. When the inhabitants of the house return, they receive a severe shock — their hearts break and they feel intensely uncomfortable. It often happens that all the things which have disappeared or are lying broken are the fruits of half a century of striving of decent and honest people, or they are tokens of love from father and mother, sister or brother, a member of the family, a dear friend or a fiancé. With how much love were those presents given? How often, when looking at them, have the owners felt the influence of this radiation of love? Now it seems to have vanished. The rays arc broken and only the radiations of hate and vengeance of a primitive, unscrupulous intruder adhere to them. It feels as if murder was committed in the house. Something is broken which can never be restored. The guilty, the infernal primitive being does not know what love means — what kind of feeling of grief he has aroused in those people. He is as materialistic as an animal. Too lazy and too indolent to work for a good life — lie prefers to break the lives of other people, to take their belongings, to render the end of their lives unhappy, disturbed, insecure and hunted. What is the life of these base-hearted beings worth? What does the word "love" mean to good, hard-working people? Those, who always behaved well, who always tried to bring some light into the darkness of lost and primitive souls, will now realise how close together Love and Hate stand. They will ask, with fear in their hearts, whether it is still justified to feel pity for such people. Whether those, who harbor neither love nor compassion in their hearts are still entitled to receive help and assistance. Whether they are not actually incorrigible, satanic people. They might remember Zoroaster, who taught the people of his time — barbaric and undeveloped as they were — about good and evil. They might remember the many prophets from the Old Testament, who tried to turn the wanton world of their time to devotion and veneration of God. They might also remember Gautama Buddha, who proclaimed submission to the Laws of Karma: suffering as atonement for evil done in former reincarnations. They will remember Jesus, who preached the rule of "Peace through Love". And, lastly, they will remember Mohammed, Leader of the Moslems, who gave the people of Mecca and Medina the Koran next to the sword... For all that, the evil on earth is not yet exterminated — love and hate are still close to each other. This darkens the path of life. Mohammed and his followers also traveled this road where love and hate clash. Mohammed knew that there were many people trying to find the road to a good life, who believed in the "One God", Allah, and who wanted to purify and to climb higher He knew well that a still greater number of them were base, primitive people — some even satanic and incorrigible — who wanted to stay where they were in the material world and in the indulgence of the flesh — people who did not care for spiritual rising and weal. He advised his followers to use the sword only together with the Koran — that there were many low souls reincarnated, and that they should spare all those who accepted Allah as their Savior, but destroy only those who were the servants of Satan and who were not prepared to purify and rise. Has Mohammed — the Messenger of God, reincarnated in a human body — perhaps himself trodden the dangerous gradient where love and hate meet? With how much caution has he initiated his people to Things Holy, and with how much tact and discretion has he warned them to use care and prudence where there were questions of killing an infidel, an impious one or an idolizer; to judge carefully whether such a one could not be susceptible to changing and become a better human being? Many centuries have passed since Mohammed came to fulfil his mission on earth- and still this earth is not cleansed of the evil and of the spirit of Satan. Reincarnated spirits, who came to this earth with the mission to let Love thrive among men, have asked themselves: Is it of any avail to feel pity for those base and incorrigible spirits? Is it of any avail to suppress thoughts of hate for the dark underworld, knowing that they cannot be saved, because they do not wish to be saved? Will it not be better if we work only for the protection and the raising of those reincarnated spirits who travel the right path and want to come closer and closer to their Creator, with love and wisdom in their hearts. Ask the help of the All Highest, pray to Him with deep .sincerity and devotion: "Our Father, look with compassion down to Your children here on earth. Let courage, hope, perseverance and faith grow in their hearts—and, above all, do not allow the feeling of love to diminish in them Banish hate and let love triumph — Love which makes the underworld feel ashamed. Separate — Oh Father — the internals from the good, and let Your children, who .seek Your Love and Your Compassion, not perish with thirst for Your Light. Let them rind Wisdom that they might live in Your Light in All Eternity."

AMEN.
Dear Reader,



To be "chosen" is not a favor, as granted occasionally to a favorites pet. It is something which a spirit acquires by his yearning for perfection and evolution. It happens on earth — to reincarnated spirits — that a father or mother feels a special love for one of their children. This is partly a human feeling, but it can also be sentimentality. It may be quite a natural feeling, but the father and mother do not always understand why. It is caused by the fact that this child, which holds their special love, has an extraordinary character, with great ability and intelligence. This love takes nothing away from their love for the other children, hut they realise that this favorite child needs more attention than the others. The attention of the parents is roused for this child, because its intelligence, its longing for perfection, for doing good, has taken a higher form and shows a higher degree of evolution than those of brothers and sisters. The father and mother feel very happy to have such a child endowed with virtues, with the natural disposition to excel under certain conditions. Without harming their other children, they feel admiration for this special one. Admiration, however, is an expression of love. This child needs more help and assistance from the parents to decide on the way of its life. Earlier than the brothers and sisters will it want explanations about things which are felt or observed, but is as yet not able to understand. Its faculties are developed earlier and it therefore wants to understand many things in which other children of the same age are not interested. Would you call such a child privileged? You have already been told that the physical human body is the mirror of the spirit dwelling within. The expression of the eyes, the form, lines and colour of the face, radiate information about the evolution of this spirit. This is a very important study to observe, and people who start this study gain much knowledge of humanity and are able to determine the degree of a person's evolution. Follow up this individual's way of living, its perceptions and aversions, and you will discover the higher radiation of his soul and his spiritual life. Then you can compare those two findings and draw your conclusion. It is noticed in the world of discarnated spirits, that every spirit brings its virtues, but also its shortcomings, into the cosmos. However, a good spirit does its best in the cosmos to evolve — to shed its failings and to develop virtues. But the spiritual degree of its evolution is not to be denied, the spirit stands on the level of its evolution. When spirits of higher evolution come and speak to it and show new roads to purification, it will stare with astonishment and interest into the spiritual eyes of the speakers, which radiate a bright light as proof of their higher purification and evolution. Is it now its turn — the spirit wonders — to accept the advice and to choose the directed road? all these new theories, new wisdom and new knowledge? Why should one not choose this road? All is spiritual — but there is nothing else in this new world: the cosmos. Physical matter, material possessions, do not count any longer — they do not matter either. Whilst the spirit is talking and philosophizing, its ascending has already begun. The higher the climbing, the more experiences are gained. More other spirits are met and talked to and the more will this spirit learn that some of them are initiating it into theories as yet unknown. But it also meets such spirits which are discouraged, depressed and depleted — to which in return it has to give help, courage and confidence, they being those which struggle and suffer. It will feel like the good Samaritan, who does not ask name, station in life or belief, just helps where help is needed. Without noticing it, the spirit has purified and evolved. It has realised that there are spirits of higher purification on a higher plane of evolution than itself. Passing through various reincarnations in a human body, it returns to the cosmos again and again, always with more virtues and less failings. Still later, the spirit will notice that everything within and without has changed — the atmosphere is clearer and the light, wherein it moves, is brighter. Everything looks finer than before and the spirit itself feels more vigorous and much stronger and equipped with faith, hope and love. It now spends all its time helping the helpless, dishearted and confused spirits, and aiding those which search for light and truth. It is at first fairly bewildered that not everyone is noticing the light as he sees it, but later — whilst talking to other human spirits — will notice how much they feel heartened and relieved and how anxious they are for enlightenment. They feel the splendor of this radiation and it gives them the strength and the courage to go on and to pursue their difficult path to purification. It does not quite understand its own condition, but still goes on to distribute knowledge, wisdom, love and charity to everyone whom it meets or who is sent to it, to benefit by its influence. It does not know yet, but after many tests and trials, which it had to undergo and managed successfully, entities of the Highest Spheres will come and say: "You are chosen" — "The Lord God has followed you in your struggle and suffering and in your perseverance. God's blessing came to you and now you are a beloved child of God — and you shall now work your mission in the Name of God". The spirit becomes "the Elect of God" by wisdom, love, benevolence and charity — the human spirit has to shed much evil to reach this state. The road is long and dreary. Purification is not "a blessing from above" — only the admission to purification is "a Blessing from Heaven". The human spirit has to work hard to reach the goal. It is the building of his temple, the temple of his soul, his spirit. It is the crown which he gains, the reward he receives for his submission to the Laws of God, for his perseverance, for his love of humanity, for his sympathy with the suffering of his fellow-creatures, for his sacrifices, his compassion, his charity and his love. There are no favorites in the cosmos. No unworthy one will enjoy favors and preference, these are only entrusted to perfected spirits. Everyone's place in the heavenly spheres is according to the degree of purification reached. Automatically, the specific gravity of each spirit is tuned to the plane or spiritual sphere, which is its spiritual home. There it works its further evolution, reincarnates; and discarnates, purifies and evolves, until the "Gates of Eternity and Bliss" are opened and this spirit is told: "You are a Child of God" "You are chosen" "Eternal Bliss is promised to you".

AMEN.
Dear Reader,



Many people search for truth and wisdom. They cultivate love for their fellow-beings, charity and compassion. They are the mirror of the prophets and of the Spirit of Christ during His Life on earth. This type of human spirit is born in different people and in different races. Jews of a high spiritual level claim Moses and the Prophets as examples. The followers of Zoroaster look for wisdom by separating the good from the evil and by fighting the evil in men. Buddhists look for wisdom by analyzing spiritual life and by investigating the Laws of Karma. Christians compare their lives to the Life of the Christ, study the Gospels and cultivate love, compassion and charity. They work for personal peace and peace among men. All churches, which venerate the One God, work ardently for peace on earth — and still there is no peace because there is no understanding and not enough love. Why is there not peace between the members of a family? Why is there no peace between relatives? No peace between members of the same church? of the same kin? of the same race? of the same planet? The answer from the beyond is plain: "Because people on earth do not all belong to the same sphere of evolution" — "Human Spirits of different spheres of evolution, who still have to purify and to unfold, and who need more reincarnations in a human body, exist on earth pell-mell together. The one tries unintentionally to become the Karma — the source of misery of the soul — of other people. The other one, in turn, tries to harm another. They cause each other quarrels, trouble, sorrow, grief, suffering and distress". In comparison to the amount of wrong they do to others, they are doing very little to bring happiness. Love means only material calculations, for most people. The charity, apparently practiced, is mostly done with a view to profit. Compassion is, for such people, an unknown notion — they do not understand that they must forgive others their failings; assistance or help is given from egotism or ambition. Why do some people behave in such a way that they have no friends and nobody to love them? Because they are not worthy of it, according to their actions and their way of living. He who sows evil, reaps evil — he who causes struggle, grief and suffering to his neighbors in turn receives struggle, grief and suffering. But the few people with love in their hearts receive kindness. He, who practices charity, will himself receive help when he needs material or moral support. Somebody, who is charitable and helpful to needy people, who is able to forgive his enemies their shortcomings, will receive help himself when in difficulties, and even forgiveness for the wrongs which he, thoughtlessly, did to others. Failings are the proof of low spiritual evolution; virtues are the proof and the result of experience, wisdom and spiritual evolution. Once a person realises this, it is his duty to contact the lower evolved human spirits and try to teach them the Laws of Creation, of the Cosmos, of Karma and of the Earth. It is his duty to show them the difference between good and evil, to explain the Laws of Karma, show them the advantage of virtue and the disadvantage of transgressions — enlighten them about the lives of the Prophets and the Leaders of High Creeds — and also show them the path to a happier life here on earth as well as in the beyond. Even if the evolution of a reincarnated spirit is still fairly low, his soul and his mind are well able to understand the necessity of evolution. By discussing all these principles he will be able to rise — notwithstanding the effects of Karma, which cannot be eliminated. Certainly, not all reincarnated spirits of low evolution are capable of liberation, because they are generally conceited, know-alls, and domineering. They want to command and rule other people without considering the results. He, who has never been a servant himself, cannot be a good master and he, who has never learned to obey, is not able to give right commands. The endeavor must still be to introduce uniformity to people, with regard to harmony in feeling and in thinking, in words and in deeds. Spirits of high evolution must become the teachers of those of lesser evolution — without ever intruding. The wisdom which the human spirit acquired on earth, and the knowledge which he gained by his experiences, he must hand down to his "brothers in arms", in order to have them prepared for all that is in store for them — on earth and in the cosmos. He has, because of his knowledge, experience and wisdom, to educate his fellow-beings not only to be good citizens, but especially to be worthy bearers of the higher knowledge, bearers of love, benevolence, com- passion and wisdom. He has to be the beacon on their path through life on earth and on their spiritual path. It is surely a difficult task because you will soon find out that their low spiritual evolution does not enable them to follow the path which you have already trodden. But nevertheless you have to come to the conviction that you planted a seed in their hearts which, in its own time, will enable them to find the right road. "Many spirits are called, but few are chosen." You, too, will encounter many a one on your path of life in whose soul you will sow those "words of wisdom". A few will be able to understand you and will follow you on this "path of wisdom". Those are the "chosen" ones, who, by their will and by their trust in God, will travel the "path of wisdom" and follow it until the end is reached: in perfect spiritual purification and evolution blending with the Light of God — the Light of Wisdom and Bliss. The multitude among whom you have sown your seeds of wisdom, shall in turn — partly however — hen the seed has ripened. come in search of you and your path. They will need zeal, ardor. will, courage and perseverance to reach, as you did, the end. the beacon: the Light of God. Build your spiritual school — you will get leaders from above to assist you. Teach the world the path of wisdom. The life of the reincarnated human spirits will be much more agreeable. The "Light of Wisdom" shall permeate the hearts of men. There will be more harmony among the people with virtues cultivated and errors shed. Then the mission of the Christ: "Peace through Love" and "Brotherhood between People" will be better understood; then perhaps everyone will understand the significance of cause and effect. For all — pray and hope that the earth may continue long enough for everyone to get the opportunity to come close to God — the Spirit of Life, Light and Wisdom — to thank Him and to venerate Him—and to blend with Him for al! Eternity of Eternities.

AMEN.
