reincarnated on earth, to undergo this process of purification. The more it

unifies — through penance and suffering — by wisdom, awareness and life-experiences

— the higher will be its degree of evolution. But — this wisdom and awareness have

to be spiritual. The human being has to accept and practice to live his own spiritual

life — he must value his spiritual life foremost and sincerely, higher than his

material life on earth. Thus he will know and accept that his purification is

spiritual evolution.


Amen.
FIFTEENTH MEDITATION

SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION IS THE GATE TO ETERNAL LIFE

We have stated that Spiritual Evolution is the result of Purification. Let us then

also accept that Spiritual Evolution leads the human spirit to the "Gates to

Eternal Life". Let us reject all false axioms, as e.g.: that all human spirits, will

after the death of their physical body—be received into Eternal Life and Bliss in

heir Father's Mansion. The truth is, that every human spirit in the cosmos lives kind

to kind, just as it lived on earth, where also human beings of the same type, knocked

together. As Jesus-Christ has told us: there are many mansions in the House of my

Father, which means: in the cosmos are many spheres and many planes. Only those who,

during their incarnations as human beings, have lived a good exemplary life, and

have, by repentance, suffering and struggle — paid for and balanced previous

failings, gained perfect purification — those, who have collected wisdom and

therewith complete spiritual evolution — those only shall pass through this Gate to

Eternal Life, Spiritual Evolution which is the condition to reach this Gate to Eternal Life.
Amen.
SIXTEENTH MEDITATION

LOVE IS THE ROAD TO ETERNAL LIFE

The primitive human spirit, which reincarnates in a human body, has still many

faults and defects, but successive reincarnations give it the ability to part with

its vices, errors and defects and gain virtues instead. The more primitive the

human spirit, the more dependant is the human individual on animal-instincts,

possessions, luxury and physical enjoyments. The more — after many successive

reincarnations — the human spirit casts off its errors and vices, and begins

to rise and improve, the more intensely will it develop the feeling of confidence

in its fellow-beings, the feeling of love for plants, animals and

human beings — develops its sense for aesthetics, love of art and science, and

have respect and veneration for all that is beautiful and sublime, it will acquire

fervent ecstasy for the Wonder of Creation and for the Creator. Wisdom, too, grows

and is established in him. Little by little he is filled with Love and radiates

Love and Peace. He radiates Love — and all and everything, with which he comes in

contact, is penetrated and filled with this Love, and they — in turn — emanate this

Love, as a soothing balm, to others. Love is a spiritual condition. The physical

body knows neither love nor hate. The spirit — though — feels, thinks and acts. The

physical body is just a temporal tool. Love is proof of sublimity and evolution,

and perfect evolution leads the human spirit to the Gates of Eternal Life and Bliss.

The road to Eternal Life is "Love".
Amen.
SEVENTEENTH MEDITATION

LOVE IS SPIRITUAL ADMIRATION

Love has a very extended circumference, but admiration has a still wider radius. Love

cannot be seen with human eyes. As we use the expression: "true Love" we feel some

deep intensity, something in affably precious and valuable, indestructible, eternal.

There is such a serenity about it, such a "preparedness to suffer — to

complete surrender". We call it "Mother love", when a mother is prepared to suffer

many sacrifices for her children. This is still a human feeling, because this love

implies more the body of the child, but it is already the transition to spiritual

love. The mother is not aware of the fact, that her child is a spirit, but motherly

love is a more spiritual than human feeling. This feeling — however — is quite

instinctive. But, when the child performs an act of neighborly love, sacrifices

to save someone from evil, an accident or a misfortune, or even from death — then

this motherly love turns to something like veneration and admiration, becomes more

spiritual — no more for the child's little body, but for his spirit — as admiration

is no more a human perception, but is a sensation and being such, a sensation is not

physical, but spiritual. When a human being sees a wonderful piece of art, he feels

admiration. He feels respect for the artist, because he realizes, that the artist

has conceived from his innermost soul in creating this work. The piece of art is

material, but the love. the devotion, which created it, has great spiritual value

and thus clings invisibly to the form, the lines and colors or the tunes of the

melody. And the onlooker, who feels this love radiating from the artist and his work,

stands before it, profoundly touched and affected, with deep-felt admiration. The

love, which the artist radiated in his work, creates intense admiration in the heart

of the admirer and such admiration is actually a condition of spiritual love. Love

is Spiritual Admiration.


Amen.
EIGHTEENTH MEDITATION

SPIRITUAL ADMIRATION IS THE GATE TO AESTHETICS

Admiration is a spiritual condition, it is immaterial, just a feeling. A feeling is

always spiritual, it is entirely different from physical impressions, like pain...

He, who feels admiration, is susceptible to beauty — in forms, lines, color or

tones — but is also susceptible to the beauty in actions, like sacrifice, submission

to higher influences, respect for the aged and for antiquity in general, relief for

needy people, comfort for the sick and help for those not provided for. Admiration

for beauty is the impulse to aesthetic emotions and this leads the human individual

to the Gates of the Temple of Aesthetics. Once he enters this temple of aesthetics,

admiration develops a wider aspect and a higher significance. The human feeling of

admiration then becomes coupled with Love and Veneration. He feels the vibration of

each fine form, each elegant line, harmonious tunes and splendid colors — feels

their radiation, their significant implications. He realizes and admires what he

beholds and senses in this temple, and he realizes that this perception of beauty

has furthered his aim for more inclinations and that new impulses will arise in his

soul. and more of the mysteries of aesthetics he unveils. Spiritual Admiration is

the Gate to Aesthetics.


Amen.
NINETEENTH MEDITATION

AESTHETICS IS THE GATE TO SPIRITUAL LOVE

The human hood of the individual human being becomes less and less important, the

more the reincarnated human spirit finds its home in the Temple of Aesthetics — and

as the awareness of his human hood diminishes, everything seems to take on a more

spiritual implication. His aesthetic sensations, his admiration and veneration for

everything sublime, brings his spiritual life more and more to the foreground. .All

things, which actuate his feeling for art and beauty, caress his eyes, his scent,

his ears — all his senses. It is no longer human love, which allows him to admire

all these forms and lines, colors and tunes of beauty but his inner spiritual love

arouses his veneration, which aesthetics and beauty evince for him. He has the

inspiration to become less human and far more a spiritual being. The love, which

produces all this splendor and glory, is noticeable in all these forms, lines and

colors, which charm his eyes and the music, which fascinates his ears and he senses

the fragrance of nature's abundance, which he inhales. His admiration has led him to

the Gates of Aesthetics — and aesthetics has animated a deep-felt, grateful love — and

this is spiritual love. Aesthetics are the Gates to Spiritual Love.
Amen.
TWENTIETH MEDITATION

SPIRITUAL LOVE INCLUDES ECSTASY

When a reincarnated spirit is able to perceive spiritual love without any secondary

human notion, one may draw the conclusion, that it has overcome all worldly,

physical inclinations and has reached such a degree of spiritual purification and

evolution, that admiration for the Sublime has awakened a new sensation in his soul,

namely Ecstasy. He feels admiration for some aesthetic expressions — for higher

expressions this admiration is coupled with respect — still higher creations awake a

force of attraction, which is revealed as a feeling of unlimited spiritual love.

This feeling of admiration. of love. reverence and respect is something so

overwhelming, that it brings about a state of Ecstasy. Then all is

forgotten - - what he is and where he is, time and space glide away, earth and his

human body have dissolved. He is like a spirit which has left its body and wanders

in the wide spirit world, in the Temple of Aesthetics. His return to the human body

is a great disappointment. He looks at the earth — his approach to lilac material

world brings him back to actuality. Spiritual love induces Ecstasy.


Amen.
TWENTY-FIRST MEDITATION

ECSTASY IS THE MIRROR OF DIVINE LOVE

Ecstasy is a state of mind, which is caused by an expression of love and respectful

reverence and admiration of Beauty. Call this beauty: aesthetics in all its

expressions, lines, forms, colors, music, fragrance and taste — it remains a

condition, in which a spirit is attracted to higher spheres, to the font of his

origin: to God. Thus ecstasy holds a mystic sensation. In whatever condition the

reincarnated human spirit may find itself, wherever it feels attracted by a

radiation of love, it will — in return —also radiate — also radiate a feeling

of love. Both radiations of love meet one another halfway and blend together.

Everything has its radiation, and this radiation of love adheres to everything which

was created with a loving heart. The radiation of this love remains in all lines,

colors and music — and charms the human spirit, to radiate its own love. The whole

of nature — the human spirit included — radiates the Love of their Creator, because

He accomplished His Creation with abounding Love and all His Creation is therefore

mutually united in Love. The human being, who —on earth — is influenced by physical

matter, is able to deliver himself — by purification and evolution — of this

material matter and of his physical body. He might reach a condition of ecstasy,

radiate his own love of every created being. This condition incites Mysticism,

because the origin of all Love is .... God. His Atoms are planted in every created

thing, and — as God is Love — so every created thing, which owns His Atom, bears

Divine Love. Ecstasy is the mirror of Divine Love.


Amen.
TWENTY-SECOND MEDITATION

DIVINE LOVE BRINGS LIBERATION

Divine Love is experience, distinctly explained, according to the state of ecstasy

in which the human being feels himself to be Divine Love lives in every created

thing and raises mutual radiation. The state of ecstasy lightens the weight of the

physical body and the spirit draws greater influence from the Divine Power in the

cosmos. As much as the reincarnated human spirit liberates itself and reaches a

higher degree of evolution, it becomes easier to disregard its physical body and to

develop a progressively growing force: Love. Love renders him more and more free

from worldly desires. This deep feeling — Love — purifies and grows perpetually more

spiritual. The physical body was for a long time a hindrance to his development,

because the body too desires to fulfill its part on earth.

Eventually the spirit is advanced enough to take the lead and to subdue the physical

body — and is now able to travel its chosen path, the path to purification,

perfection, evolution. The independence from the body. the independence from evil

influences, from base and corrupt human cravings — are now imminent, Who brings

liberation? .... the Divine Love, which penetrates his whole being in his moments

of ecstasy and of leaving the body. Divine Love bears him away and he radiates Love

and this Love surrounds him like a bulwark .... This is the whole secret.
Amen.
TWENTY-THIRD MEDITATION

LIBERATION IS LIFE ETERNAL

Liberation is freeing the spirit from its physical body — but Liberation means also

to be free from all evil desires, thus: evolution. Liberation is the result of Love

and Wisdom. Liberation means: the Gates to Eternal Life. Liberation is thus:

release, in the Light of Divine Love and Wisdom. God is Eternity. The road to

Eternal Life is Love and Wisdom. Ecstasy cultivated Love and Wisdom in the human

spirit. He, who is filled with Love and Wisdom is able to ascend the ladder of

Evolution and therewith to approach the Light of Eternal Life closer and closer. God

is Eternal Life — God is Wisdom and Love. He, who rises with his Love and Wisdom,

ultimately reaches the Gate to Eternal Light, where his Love and Wisdom blend with

the Eternal Light — because his spiritual treasure is an Atom of the Divine Light

and Wisdom, which is... God. Liberation of the human spirit from the imperfect,

temporal human body is: to live in Eternity. Liberation is Eternal Life.


Amen.
TWENTY-FOURTH MEDITATION

ETERNAL LIFE IS BLISS

The conception, that all discarnated spirits reach Eternal Bliss after the death of

their physical body, is a false axiom. This would be contrary to the Laws of God.

"Kind to kind" is the parole in the Universe — there are many spheres and each

spirit will find its suitable home, according to its evolution. No imperfectly

purified spirit is assigned to reach the sphere of bliss. Only spirits of higher

evolution are permitted to visit spheres of lower evolution, to help less evolved

spirits to reach the path to higher spheres and only after many reincarnations will

a human spirit be authorized to reach the highest sphere, that of Eternal Bliss.

Another false axiom, which is widely spread among human beings, is the idea, that

"Bliss" means: Rest and Peace in Eternity. Nothing is less true. When a

spirit — thanks to its purification and sublimity — reaches the state of Bliss,

its sensibility and conception of responsibility surpasses by far those of a spirit

of lesser evolution. This spirit has been found worthy to enter the Light of God. It

has — during its cycle of reincarnations — lived through many life-experiences and

each such experience has increased its wisdom and its worth of efficacy. This

intelligence is used for missions among reincarnated spirits on earth and on

other planets. Such a mission includes attempts to prepare spirits, which are seeking

the path to liberation, in order to realize truth. It inspires them to cultivate Love

and Compassion and to good deeds. It encourages them to read and study enlightening

good explanatory books, arranges contacts, which will introduce them to initiation

in mystical and philosophical conceptions and impressions etc... Oh no — spirits,

which live in the sphere of Bliss, are never idle. Their joy is in works of Love

and Liberation. They are no longer hampered by a physical body, which is subject

to pain and difficulties - - but the spiritual being is so sensitive, that working

among reincarnated spirits may also cause them grief and sorrow. They will get tired

occasionally, and need a period of rest to gain new strength. And still — they

feel happy and satisfied about their purification and bliss, because they live with

their work and their wisdom -— in the Light of God. Eternal Life is Bliss.


Amen.
TWENTY-FIFTH MEDITATION

DEATH DOES NOT EXIST

Everything which happens on earth, is the Mirror of the Universe. Just as there are

laws on earth, to which people have to submit, so are the Laws in the Universe.

Life on earth as reincarnated human spirits allows the spirits to get acquainted

with the existence of good and evil and teaches them lo choose the path of love

and goodness. The spirit lies — during its life on earth in a human body — to pass

many tests, to realize its progress in development and to know how effectively it

has passed all these tests. It collects much life-experience and knowledge of human

beings during this stay on earth. It does not only learn the care of its body, but

also of its own spiritual indigence. In each reincarnation are opportunities for

improvement — there is always the opportunity to balance its karma through

penitence — through spiritual and physical suffering. The spirit thus gradually

realizes good and evil — in its existence as human being and as spirit. This

realization develops virtues — it also tries to overcome the still remaining

failings and shortcomings. The human being searches for spiritual truth and is — by

his awakened wisdom — able to study his fellow - creatures as well as himself as

human being and as spirit. And ultimately the spirit is sufficiently advanced to

teach other spirits, which are less purified, and to show them the path to

purification and evolution. "It becomes a spiritual adviser and counselor" and a

helper in need... during its future human lives as well as in the spiritual spheres

later in the cosmos. And the spirit tries to improve more and more — even in the

cosmos, to penetrate still deeper to the Divine Light of Love and Wisdom. The various

bodies — in which the spirit has incarnated — have decayed, but the Spirit, the

Bearer of the Divine Atom. lives for all Eternity. Death does not exist.
Amen.
FINAL PRAYER

Father In Heaven — open my eyes and allow me to see the evil and failings in my

life; Give me the strength to overcome them; Give me the will to acquire new virtues.

Let more wisdom develop in me. Grant me the gift to understand my fellowmen, Let me

realize myself more, both as spirit and as man, Help me to persevere on the path of

brother love. Let me utterly trust in Thee — Grant me contentment with my life on

earth — and Let idealism and mysticism he my strength and comfort.
Amen.
CONCLUSION

Dear Readers:

Some of you will entirely accept the Divine Truths, which are recorded in this

"Book of Wisdom" Some of you will accept it only in parts, Some will reject these

Truths completely. Those of you, who reject all of it, have not finished reading

the whole book. They have as yet too low a spiritual evolution, to be able to

fathom its deeper meaning or to accept it. Those, who are still in doubt, but have

however, finished reading the book to the last page heard at least the seeds of

Wisdom and kept them in their mind, and — after reading the book again later and

meanwhile have collected more life-experiences — will change their doubts and be

convinced. You, who accept all the Divine Truths, recorded in this book, will in your

future lives as human beings on earth — either aware or unaware — help to realize

God's Divine Plans here on earth. You will have to bear much greater responsibility,

because now you realize that you are a Reincarnated Spirit, which is initiated in

Divine Mysteries. You will in future — unknowingly — work together with "invisible entities", which will inspire you:

1) to sow Divine Truths among those human beings who are able to understand them;

2) to intercept the Evil, which fights these Divine Truths, and which tries

to hinder reincarnated spirits to further rising and evolution.

3) to behave kindly towards your fellow-beings, to help them to find the

right path — your own path — and therewith to prepare also a place for

yourself, a place in Bliss and Eternal Life, This will be your task as

Spirit in the Service of God.

ALLAN KARDEC

A SHORT BIOGRAPHY (BY HENRY SAUSSE)

H. L. Rivail was born in Lyon (France) in 1804. He was expected - as were all male

members of the family — to accept a position as Magistrate. But this he did not

appreciate. He developed - since early youth -- a keen interest in science and

philosophy. He spent his schooldays in Lyon, hut later studied in Yverdun

(Switzerland) under the famous Professor Pestalozzi whose most devoted, most

intelligent co-worker he became. After having received his degree of Dr. Med. and

later selected Professor, lie went to Paris, there to open an Institute on the lines

of that of Professor Pestalozzi, in Yverdun, hut unfortunate circumstances forced

him to change his profession and to earn his living as clerk and by private teaching.

I' lie first time that Dr. Rivail made contact with spiritualism was in 1854. when a

friend took him to a séance. He was immediately greatly interested. One day lie

received a message from a Protecting Spirit, which told him that in a previous

incarnation they both had lived in Gaul, in Druidic 5imes and that as a Druid,

he -- Dr. Rivail - bore the name: Allan Kardec. This spirit then promised to

assist him in his forthcoming difficult task in life. All spiritual messages,

which Allan Kardec received in such séances, lie carefully collected and

published them under the name of Allan Kardec in several books, the first hook

being: "Le Livre des Lsprits" (The book of the Spirits). In 1858 he started the

periodical: "La Revue Spirite" (Spiritualistic Revue), which is still to-day the

best known and most important spiritualistic journal in France. His is a hard task,

he is the target of all kinds of suspicion, is continually insulted and laughed at.

Still — he endured and persevered, and achieved to come in contact with many

spiritualists all over the world and collected as many messages as he could get. He

published — in this sequence: The Book of the Spirits — The Book of Mediums — the

Gospels — the Creation — Heaven and Earth — all of which are still dominant and

fundamental spiritualistic books. He — the Father of Modern Spiritualism — died on

31 March 1869, 65 years — of a heart attack, caused by strenuous overwork. Let us

feel profound respect and reverence for him — who, although scoffed at, derided

and humiliated, devoted his life to the triumph of such a beautiful thought: "To

give evidence, that at the other side of the grave "The Dead Are Alive".


Amen.

LAST REMARKS

The physical body of Dr. H. L. Rivail (Allan Kardec) is laid to rest in

Paris (France) at the famous churchyard "Pere Lachaise". About a hundred

years have since passed. When you visit Paris, do not neglect to visit this tomb of

Allan Kardec and — with His name in your heart — send a prayer to Heaven, as if your
