“What a glorious message we have for your world of matter - a message that makes men free and teaches them to rejoice in their divine heritage; a message that teaches them to throw off shackles and bonds; a message that teaches them to rejoice in the fullness of spiritual knowledge; a message that shows them how to live not only on the planes of matter but on the planes of spirit; a message that brings them beauty, love and wisdom, understanding, truth and happiness; a message that speaks of service, service, service.”

“Your world is in beauty now. You see all around you the manifestations of the Great Spirit, as the dawn of life sweeps over your surroundings again in its cycle, and you marvel at the beauty of the blossom and the fragrance of the flowers, and you say, ‘How great is the handiwork of the Great Spirit’.” 

“And yet, that which you see is but a very, very pale reflection of the beauties that we have in our world of spirit. We have flowers such as you have never seen, we have colours such as you have never beheld, we have scenes and forests, we have birds and plants, we have streams and mountains. You have nothing to compare them with, and you will be able to enjoy them, for, even though you will be ghosts, you will be real ones.” 

“Your world of matter is so slow and thick. It is so ponderous and heavy that inspiration is lost in transmission, in the endeavour to slow down the higher and more subtle vibrations of spirit. Yours is a dark, clammy world compared with the world of light where I live.”
