While this book is filled with Christian allusions, it is also filled with the most wonderful exposition about Universal Spiritual Truths and Spiritualism. There is a tone of positive optimism that is so very high and empowering as well. Not only that but “The Thinning of the Veil” is one of those rare spiritual books which positively blends mysticism, new thought, universal truth, and spiritualism.

E"pirical e%idence that hu"an personalit sur%i%es the phsical &od throu$h which
it has "anifested itself' and that co""unication is possi&le &etween persons
discarnate and those still in the flesh' has &een $athered' sifted in so"e de$ree' and
"ade accessi&le to the pu&lic' & Spiritualists' the Societ for Pschical (esearch'
and other in%esti$ators) In recent ears such e%idence has presented itself fro"
"an sides' in rapidl $rowin$ %olu"e* and it now a"ounts' in the +ud$"ent of so"e
e"inent scientists' to a"ple proof) ,t an rate' no theor hitherto su$$ested short of
the Spiritualist one' is reconcila&le with all the rele%ant facts of well!authenticated
e-perience) It "a &e' howe%er' that the su&+ect does not .uite lend itself to scientific
de"onstration' and that a&solute con%iction can &e reached onl throu$h a
.uickenin$ of the indi%idual consciousness which will "ake the essential
deathlessness of one/s spirit to &e intuiti%el percei%ed) Such a .uickenin$' was part
of the illu"ination that the late () 0) Bucke descri&ed in his &ook Cos"ic
Consciousness' and that "ore 1orthodo-1 Christians would pro&a&l identif with
1the &aptis" of the #ol 2host)1

The record which this little &ook contains of intercourse with a world &eond the
ran$e of the usuall!reco$ni3ed &odil senses' is not intended as an addition to the
pschical e%idence a%aila&le for in.uirers on those ele"ental .uestions) , critic that
is uncon%inced with re$ard to the" will pro&a&l re"ain skeptical after readin$ this
&ook) #e will readil suppose that what " wife thinks she hears and sees throu$h
newl!unfolded interior faculties onl wells up fro" so"e deep reser%oir of "e"or
and sprin$ of i"a$ination* and that' when it see"s to her an o&+ecti%e perception'
her su&conscious "ind is +ust plain$ her a trick) But to those who are in the &est
position to for" an opinion concernin$ her e-periences' no such hpothesis appears
ade.uate) ,fter o&ser%in$' da & da for now "ore than two ears' the si$ns of the
.uiet unforced &losso"in$ of those pschic faculties in her' after recei%in$ throu$h
her se%eral "essa$es that su&se.uentl ha%e &een %erified in " own e-perience' I
cannot dou&t that she is &ein$ used & a $roup of discarnate &ein$s who' under the
Lord of all' are workin$ for the thinnin$ of the %eil &etween the life in the phsical
&od and the life &eond) 4or ha%e I &een the onl con%inced witness of' and $ainer
&' " wife/s pschic de%elop"ent) It was durin$ a %isit that she paid to her father'
"other' and sister' in ,u$ust 5657' that her pschic sensiti%eness first re%ealed itself)
Since then' whene%er the ha%e %isited us' or she the"' the ha%e +oined with her in
her dail "eetin$ with hea%enl %isitants) Each of her two &rothers has also &een
present on two or three occasions) In rare cases8+ust three ti"es8with the consent
of her 2uides &eond the %eil' friends outside the fa"il circle ha%e likewise &een
ad"itted) ,nd all these relati%es and friends ha%e throu$h her $ot co""unications
that ha%e &een to the" distinctl helpful and .uite rele%ant to their respecti%e
difficulties and needs) The cu"ulati%e con%incin$ effect of such e-periences could'
howe%er' scarcel &e con%eed to stran$ers)

So"e of our dearest relati%es 1deceased1 ha%e8so we &elie%e8%isited us and
spoken to us' respondin$ thus to a call "ediated throu$h the spirit!friend who was
the first to "ake hi"self audi&le to " wife) It is of course a $reat and sole"n deli$ht
to co"e once "ore into conscious touch with the"' and learn how the ha%e fared
and what the ha%e &een doin$ since their transition) But of this kind of satisfaction
we are not per"itted to seek a %er fre.uent e-perience) 4ot all discarnate hu"an
&ein$s ha%e as their "ission to continue co!operatin$ with those the ha%e left
&ehind on the "aterial plane) 0ost of the" ha%e elsewhere lessons to learn and
$ood work to do' fro" which it would not &e well to di%ert the") Besides' those &est
.ualified to instruct us here and lead us on the upward wa' are less likel to &e
found a"on$ those who &elon$ed when on earth to our own or our parents/
$eneration and were in closest association with its' than a"on$ those who' throu$h
an a"pler e-perience &oth on this and the other side of death' are further e%ol%ed)
The $ain to earth dwellers would &e s"all8perhaps' instead of $ain' there "i$ht &e
added confusion and waste of ti"e8if an e-tension of pschic de%elop"ent a"on$
the" resulted "erel in their "aintainin$ or resu"in$ co""unication with deceased
relati%es and friends little' if at all' wiser than the"sel%es) But there would &e $reat
$ain if closer intercourse could &e opened up with the 0asters of wisdo" and lo%e'

In readin$ such a &ook as this' one should of course take into account that there are
li"itations on the part of the 1sensiti%e1 throu$h who" it has co"e) What passes

I(EL,4D' Octo&er' 565?)
Ver wonderful does it see" when for the first ti"e one hears clearl the well!
re"e"&ered %oice of a friend who has passed into the ;nseen World) This entirel
une-pected e-perience ca"e to "e in ,u$ust' 5657' and since then the people and
the conditions of the other life ha%e &eco"e "ore and "ore percepti&le to "e
without "aterial apparatus of an kind) , friend' who had left the earth a&out fi%e
ears &efore' at first $a%e "e %arious con%incin$ proofs of identit' and then went on
to tell "uch that was interestin$ and illu"inati%e a&out the ne-t planes of e-istence)

, few das later' a #ea%enl Teacher also ca"e to speak to "e' throu$h " unseen
friend' and I could hear his %oice e%en "ore clearl) ,fterwards he %isited us e%er
Sunda da e%enin$' and as' he spoke' word & word' sentence & sentence' in
perfect se.uence of thou$ht' I said it aloud' and " hus&and took it down in
shorthand) So"e of these addresses are to &e found in the second part of this little
&ook) I felt fro" the %er first perfectl nor"al' not losin$ consciousness in an wa'
&ut I could not $uess what the ne-t word would &e until I had heard it) 1We +ust $i%e
ou one word at a ti"e' and then wait to see if ou ha%e $rasped it'1 said " friend)

The %oice see"ed to speak not to " outer ear &ut to " soul!ear' and I heard e%er
intonation of it' suitin$ the nature of the thou$ht' tender' $ra%e' encoura$in$' hopeful'
+oous@ e%er hu"an e"otion that is true and &eautiful see"ed e-pressed in tones
"ore "usical than an outward %oice can reach) The Teacher told "e that &efore
lon$ I should also see hi"' without an effort on " part to de%elop clair%oance)
This pro"ise was fulfilled a few "onths later) I was walkin$ alone & the sea' when'
in one sudden flash' I saw' a tall fi$ure &eside "e' clad in shinin$ rai"ent that looked
like "oonli$ht' and with a face so wonderfull cal" and &eautiful that I could not
for$et it) I saw sil%er sandals upon the feet' and then the %ision faded' &ut I a$ain
heard the now well!known %oice)

,fter this' I often saw hi"' usuall when not e-pectin$ to do so) So"eti"es he would
pace &eside "e for a few "o"ents on so"e .uiet road' speakin$ words of ad%ice or
caution and answerin$ " .uestions) I also saw hi" when he ca"e to $i%e us the
Sunda talks) It is not eas to descri&e the starr &eaut of these radiant ones) The
&od looks like a ros ala&aster la"p throu$h which the $lor of the spirit shines
forth' illu"inin$ e%en the rai"ent' and creatin$ a surroundin$ at"osphere8aura8
"ore or less da33lin$ accordin$ 9I i"a$ine: to the de$ree of spiritual de%elop"ent of
the indwellin$ soul) Thus I see the aura of the Teacher like white fla"e' %er
da33lin$' whereas that of our friend is softer' and looks "ore like candle!li$ht)

I a" conscious of the indi%idual har"on and power of each of the spirits to an
e-traordinar de$ree' i"pressin$ "e e%en "ore %i%idl than either sound or si$ht of
the") Thus when the Teacher approaches' I feel deep cal"' peace' tenderness' all
do"inated & a sense of power) The soul!at"osphere of our friend' on the other
hand' &rin$s $entleness' s"path* and I feel also a soft &ree3e waftin$ the
fra$rance of flowers) These &rief descriptions faintl su$$est " i"pressions' which
differ with each personalit that co"es)

,s the "onths passed' I saw se%eral other friends' and so"eti"es an$els for a few
wonderful seconds) The first of these e-periences i"pressed "e deepl' for the
an$el did not approach "e on a le%el' as the friends or Teacher' &ut see"ed to
descend fro" a hei$ht' and I saw opalescent fla"e &eneath the feet) The whole
&ein$ looked "ore ethereal than that of e%en the Teacher' and the halo around the
head fra"ed the "ost e-.uisite of faces) Once an an$el &rou$ht "e a sheaf of
lo%el flowers' different fro" earth ones) She said' 1Treasure th $ift of %ision' child)
It is rare a"on$st "ortals)1

On one occasion the Teacher said to "e@ 1Tr to understand the %ital i"portance of
keepin$ a cal" "ind free fro" a$itation or worr) Onl the unruffled pool can
perfectl reflect the hea%ens a&o%e it) >ou "ust .uiet our thou$hts and feelin$s to
&eca"e recepti%e to our presence and influence) We trust that as the das $o & ou
will endea%our to practise this recepti%it "ore often) We are ea$er to respond to
e%er such effort on our part' for onl thus can we efficientl widen and deepen the
channel of co""unication and "ake it of %alue) 4ot triflin$ is this work' &ut one
which leads to issues of "ore %ital i"portance than ou can at present appreciate)
>ou are called upon to do our share in &reakin$ down the &arrier &etween our world
and ours8a &arrier which is &ound to $o &efore the (ace can pro$ress further)
(eali3ation of spiritual realities and of the spiritual world within and ensoulin$ the

the "a see' help to open their ears that the "a hear' and their hearts that the
"a understand) , &lessed work it is that we call ou to do) Be thankful that ou are
called' and take our hands' that ou "a &e prepared for it' since we know &est how
to prepare ou)1 On another occasion I was told that althou$h the first outward si$n
of pschic unfold"ent had &een sudden' the preparation for it had lon$ &een $oin$
forward' durin$ " sleep' .uite unconsciousl to the outer self) 1We ha%e &een

I will now record a few of " friend/s "essa$es a&out the other life' and also so"e of

1I #,VE lon$ &een trin$ to de%elop the facult of co""unication' &ut I had not
"uch facilit for it' and so ha%e onl ac.uired it with i""ense difficult) I feel I can
help ou for a while' and " Teacher confir"s this) For the present' I a" still to work
for the earth' and ou "ust help "e to acco"plish this "ore perfectl if ou can)

1#ow wonderful that I and "an others are trin$ to con.uer DeathB The &reakin$
down of the &arrier is to &e the ne-t $reat work for the world of "en' and we can
acco"plish it onl & their praerful and acti%e co!operation) We are trin$ to $et the
earth!folk to reali3e that it is possi&le to lift the %eil now' or to see throu$h it* &ut the
whole world is so i""ersed in outside thou$hts that it "ust learn to deepen its
consciousness &efore we can $i%e it all the li$ht possi&le)

Do tr to attain a cal" attitude of "ind' and to feel the deeper thin$s "ore
constantl) <eep risin$ out of the earth!"ists li$htl like a &ird' without strain' into
our nati%e at"osphere) The %eil is thinnin$ fast now' and will thin still faster for the
souls who are conscious of what we are seekin$ to do) E%en a da or two later' ou
"a recei%e li$ht that ou could not $et toda' &ut the war!at"osphere of the earth at
the present ti"e is %er distur&in$' producin$ a "ist so dense and stiflin$ that we
can scarcel &ear to descend into it) The descent "eans sufferin$ for us) It is "ost
i"portant that ou should keep our own "ental and e"otional at"osphere clear
and cal"' free fro" all worr or a$itation)1

1,ll the "ore e%ol%ed spirits undertake their "ost serious work durin$ the ti"e
analo$ous to our ni$ht) It is then that a $reat "an strea"s of influence are sent
forth & the" &eneficiall upon the hu"an &ein$s still on the earth) In the ni$ht we
are a&le to $ather in consciousl "uch power fro" Di%ine Sources and to pass it on
i""ediatel to the souls who need it) This ni$ht!work is %er powerful for the uplift of
"ankind) 0an has to reali3e that all power co"es fro" within and is ne%er $enerated
fro" without) 2reat refor"s will &e acco"plished far "ore speedil when these Inner
Forces are &rou$ht into acti%it)

1When with clair%oant %ision durin$ the sleep of the &od ou actuall ha%e seen
the strea" of ener$ $oin$ forth fro" thou$ht and feelin$' ou will &e i""easura&l
helped & this perception to use that power) What ou consciousl learn durin$ sleep
ou can practise durin$ our nor"al workin$ consciousness)

1Whene%er anone is reall endea%ourin$ to help another for $ood' there are $uides
and helpers read to &e of ser%ice) The $ather round all healers of "ind and &od)
The are the ones who will &rin$ in the new da for which we are watchin$ with such
ea$erness8 painful ea$erness' I "i$ht sa) 1We are an-ious to train the earth souls
to work without drawin$ upon us) If ou can transfor" our own earth without us we
should &e onl too thankful) We should then turn all our attention towards
transfor"in$ the astral) 1>ou ha%e no idea how we feel uplifted and &lessed & the
reali3ation of our unit with all the constructi%e power of the Di%ine Creator) We feel
that we are one $reat spiritual &od* and we ha%e no indi%idual desire) This
reali3ation is so"ethin$ far too wonderful to &e e-pressed in earth lan$ua$e) #a%in$
had the faintest $li"pse of the destin of "ankind' one feels de%oted to the "ission
of &rin$in$ it a&out) One lon$s to spread this deep desire' &ecause one sees so
"an souls on earth still a&sor&ed & pett ai"s' which &rin$ the" &ut shallow
satisfactions) These are &ound to end in dishearten"ent and failure)1

1There are se%en planes of consciousness) I a" now on the third' where so"e of us
dwell in fa"ilies' so"e alone' &ut all in lo%e and har"on) ,s one attains a deeper
consciousness of eternal realities' one finds oneself on a hi$her plane) One can thus
%isit these hi$her planes &ut cannot re"ain in the" until it is possi&le to "aintain the
"ore e%ol%ed state of feelin$) Souls who co"e o%er' wear and hun$r for rest and
&eaut' are &rou$ht to "ost lo%el places of repose' filled & our thou$ht and praer
with a har"onious and inspirin$ at"osphere)

1Death itself is not to &e feared) The attendant pain' if an' can &e lessened &
spiritual preparation for the chan$e) We are told that ulti"atel there will co"e
de"ateriali3ation instead of corruption of the &od) But the (ace is not et sufficientl
e%ol%ed for this)1
! T)E T)ER "&+E ( T)E VE&3

On the plane where I now find "self we ha%e personal 2uides' &ut &eond this I
understand we are each illu"ined & our own #i$her Self) It is to help us to attain
this that the 2uides are $i%en to us) The are distin$uished & a &ri$hter aura' and
are so &eautiful that we instincti%el rel upon their help and ad%ice) It is " 2uide
who is influencin$ "e in this present line of action) On the other hand' we ha%e
perfect free!will to do as we choose +ust as on earth' and $reater freedo" to pursue
and carr out our own ideals)

1>our world and this one interpenetrate) There are worlds within' and in to the Centre
of Bein$) 4ot all here are conscious of our world) What I focus upon' that I can see*
&ut our en%iron"ent is not necessaril a counterpart of ours) We can "ake our own
surroundin$s) 1>esB ) throu$h our "ind I can see the soul!side of our trees) We
ha%e scener which apparentl chan$es in colourin$ si"ilarl to ours' &ut this is
&rou$ht a&out & the desire of our "inds) We do not respond to earth/s scenes
e-cept throu$h a sensiti%e) ,s ou ha%e such a lo%e of nature and such %i%id
feelin$s' I a" a&le to see the scenes "ore %i%idl than throu$h other sensiti%es)1

1There are lots of children here' such darlin$s' and the are %er happ and friendl)
,fter a certain period of education the pass to hi$her planes) The are so lo%el)
Those who ha%e a special facult for "ana$in$ children' "ake ho"es for the" in
cases where their parents are still on earth)

1There are also "an &ein$s other than "an in these "ore su&tle real"s' as well as
on other phsical planets) We can co""unicate with the"' and so"e of us stud
their ha&its so"ewhat as a tra%eler studies the was of a forei$n race) 0an of these
&ein$s are %er &eautiful) I see the" flashin$ throu$h the air like the fairies of
children/s stories) Their &odies $low with li$ht and colour8$olden' ros and
sapphire) The ha%e a lot to do with the inner "oldin$ of trees' flowers and 4ature!
stuffs) >ou think I a" ro"ancin$' &ut indeed this is actuall what I see) I see also
seraphs fro" far hi$her real"s' wonderful &ein$s who pass & on wa%es of li$ht' and
are %eiled as with a "ist) So"e of these are win$ed +ust like our pictured an$els)
1The hi$hest spirits of all onl co"e to us in %ision or on rare occasions to cast li$ht
on so"ethin$ we need to know' or in connection with our work)1

1We do not need food as on the earth' &ut a-e easil sustained & air' li$ht and
water' althou$h so"e of us take fruit too fro" the trees in our fields and $ardens)
#ere we tend the trees & thou$ht) Besides the $ardens we find here seas' lakes'
ri%ers' woods' "ountains' e%er kind of $lorious scener) There are cities too' &ut
fairer than our fairest drea" of such) ;$l houses or slu"s we could not endure for
a "o"ent) There is no dirt or disorder here' and no &odil diseases such as e-ist on
earth) ,n want of har"on in feelin$ is at once shown as a shadow on the
otherwise shinin$ white soul!&od) It can onl &e cured & thou$ht and lo%e) 1We
refresh oursel%es when wear with work a"on$st une%ol%ed souls' & &athin$ in the
e-.uisitel clear strea"s and ri%ers) We create our own $ar"ents and houses & the
power of thou$ht' or if we are una&le et to do this for oursel%es' our "ore e%ol%ed
friends "ake the" for us) There is such close and sweet fellowship here &etween
soul and soul8 no +ar' no discord' as on earth* for all speedil $ra%itate to their own
affinities of "ind and te"pera"ent' li%in$ thenceforward in perfect peace and
har"on) It is %eril the /<in$do" of #ea%en/ which we lon$ for ou to "ake
outwardl "anifest on earth) Belie%e "e' this possi&ilit is no "ira$e) It is the all!
perfect plan of the Creator for "an' in the Future) Then shall the words of the old
=ewish prophets co"e true@ The desert shall &losso" as the rose* and all creatures
dwell in peace to$ether) It is our &lessed "ission to help to inspire ou to "ake all
these drea"s actual e%en in our outer world)1

1There is so "uch I should like to tell ou' &ut I a" not allowed to do so) <nowled$e
"a not &e passed on until a certain ti"e) I think that perhaps this will &e easier for
ou to understand if ou tr to reali3e that those who' like "self' ha%e &een onl a
few ears in this real"' stand in so"ewhat the sa"e position as a child of a few
ears of a$e in our world) Older people are not alwas inclined to $i%e their children
all the knowled$e these desire' &ecause the are not ripe to recei%e it) I &elie%e that
as we pro$ress further such &ars to freedo" will &e withdrawn) The case is not .uite
analo$ous to earth conditions' since so "an of the #i$her Bein$s ha%e &een here
far lon$er than the oldest of our saints and teachers on earth) /0asters/ are saints
who can enter the outer world on acti%e ser%ice) /,n$els/ are .uite &eond e%olution
on our earth) The are &ein$s of a different order alto$ether) The ha%e had their
e%olution on another chain of planets' and the si"pl co"e into our sphere in order
to help us forward) The do not a&ide with us) /,n$els/ are %isitors fro" hi$her
real"s) /Saints/ are the perfected of hu"anit) The send out their illu"inatin$ and
inspirin$ influence to the acti%e "e"&ers who are Teachers)

1>ou can onl teach those who are prepared for the teachin$) The ri$ht Teacher is
alwas attracted) ;nless helped & those in ad%ance' we should stick fore%er) Free!
will "ust &e allowed' and until the "asses open their "inds we cannot teach the")1

1I think ou will &e interested to hear a&out so"e work I a" doin$ here +ust now) I a"
&us "akin$ houses and $ardens' lo%el restin$ places for tired souls crossin$ o%er
fro" the earth) The all need houses' of course' and do not understand at first how
to construct their own) #ere' on the third plane' we create & our thou$hts) Thus I
"ade " own house and $arden' +ust & thinkin$) It re.uires stron$ thou$hts to &uild

1In an e"er$enc of the outer life the first intuition of the soul as to what to do is
usuall the correct one) This is an i"pulse recei%ed fro" either the #i$her Self or an

1I want to tell ou a little a&out the true use of Praer) The usual kinds of praer are
al"ost %alueless &ecause the are petitions instead of de"ands) /<nock' and it shall
&e too' as we soon learn on this side' to win an answer) The %ast' eternal suppl of
Di%ine Power is all around us' &ut it needs &oth concentration of will' and faith' to &e
a&le to tap it' or to "ake the door open'8if ou prefer =esus/ si"ile) >ou folk down
there' or out there' are so fee&le in our praers' or else so selfish* and &oth these
attitudes of "ind are ne$ati%e' not positi%e)
1If ou would onl practice steadil the ri$ht kind of praer' ou would soon see
wonderful results) The "atter of the uni%erse is plastic to the power of thou$ht' and
responds at once to power' not to weakness' or %acillation of purpose) ,t the sa"e
ti"e there are "an interior forces workin$ in different directions throu$h the we& of
people/s li%es) If our praer for another soul would interfere with the pattern &ein$
wo%en & #ea%enl Powers in that particular soul/s life' our praer force will &e
thrust aside & these Powers and used in a $eneral wa to cheer and stren$then) In
an case the force is wisel directed and controlled' ne%er lost or wasted) Praer is
too often set aside for fi-ed occasions' as at noon and e%e' at reli$ious ser%ices and
so on' when in realit it should &e the dail &reath of the soul* its stead and
unwa%erin$ de"and for power and li$ht) Praer reall should i"pl &oth the de"and
and the response) It is the attitude of the soul that' ha%in$ drawn forth the underlin$
Di%ine power' now rests consciousl upon it and acco"plishes all tasks with a sense
of inherent Di%init) Work then would &e a +o instead of a la&our' and would &e done
with case instead of with strain) There is no sense of la&our a&out the operations of
nature) ,ll is acco"plished steadil and' with a few e-ceptions' restfull) It is onl
"an who la&ours painfull) So"e da he will learn the lesson' and $irded
consciousl with Di%ine power and wisdo"' will do wondrous work without difficult)1


I #,VE had two distinct tpes of Vision@ 95: S"&olic' 9D: 2li"pses into the Beond)
Of the first kind' one of the "ost %i%id was that of a 2reek chariot drawn & two white
horses plun$in$ throu$h a dark %alle) The were tossin$ their heads and racin$
wildl' with loosened reins and no charioteer) The Teacher who stood &eside "e'
said@ 1Behold the nations of the earth' uncontrolled' plun$in$ headlon$ into chaos)1

I saw a %ast darkened plain co%ered with &roken pillars of fallen &uildin$s and
fra$"ents of "asonr) It see"ed to reach for "an "iles' &ut &eond $lea"ed a
lon$ line of hills and distant countr $olden in sunshine) The Teacher drew hi"self
%er upri$ht 9a little characteristic wa he has:' and said@ 1Thou seest the end of the
aeon' the fall of the present ci%ili3ation and its institutions) Beond this scene of
chaos is an era of li$ht and &eaut)1

I was sittin$ alone a"on$ the sandhills when I percei%ed the Teacher standin$ near
"e) #e said@ 1#eed not the %oices of the World' little dau$hter' &ut at all ti"es and

On another occasion' when " power of %ision was a$ain &ein$ tested' I was shown
the inner &ein$ of the rocks' 1Behold these rocks' said the Teacher' 1instinct with life

rather than upon the frail flower of hu"an understandin$)1 I will now $i%e one or two
of the other tpe of %isions' %i3)@ 12li"pses into the ne-t World)1 ,t first I saw onl the
&eautiful &ein$s who ca"e to %isit "e' often at .uite une-pected "o"ents) One da
in a wood I suddenl heard a sweet %oice sain$ &ehind "e@ 1There is no deathB ,ll'

a$ainst the trees) #er dress was like &lue water &lown & the wind' her hair $olden)
She said@ 1I a" pleased that ou can see "e' child) Drink deep of the i""ortal
fountains so near ou in this peaceful spot)1 She s"iled and %anished) I was si"pl
deli$hted' and felt so happ)

,nother da' when standin$ on so"e rocks & the sea' I heard the Teacher sa@ 1Th
soul hath responded to the i"pulse $i%en unto her & "e) I now prepare her for still
further unfold"ent)1 #e then placed his cool hands o%er " ees for a few seconds)
14ow &ehold "eB1 I looked and saw his tall white!ro&ed fi$ure all suffused with
$olden li$ht' instead of the &la3in$ white one I used to see) Beond this was a further
aura of &lue $rowin$ &ri$hter and whiter around the head) The face was wonderfull
serene and &eautiful) So"e weeks later' when I had &eco"e .uite accusto"ed to
seein$ friends' the Teacher' and an$els' I &e$an to $et $li"pses of the scener of
the hea%enl world' feelin$ al"ost transported there in spirit) Thus I found "self
walkin$ throu$h an e-.uisite $arden fashioned like a 2reek cross' with four paths
flower!&ordered' "eetin$ at the centre &eneath a rose!co%ered ar&or) One path was
&ordered & "asses of &lue flowers' the second & $olden ones' the third and fourth
& ros and white ones) I stood at the centre and $a3ed with +o down each a%enue
of colour' and was then told that the flowers possessed $reater influence when thus
arran$ed) The were all &athed in pearl li$ht' and e%en the $reen shru&s at the
&ack see"ed surrounded & a sil%er radiance)

,nother ti"e I stood in a $arden &elted round with tall white lilies) The $round was
co%ered with "oss and %iolets' a$ain arran$ed in "asses) I saw a tree with white
&ell!shaped &losso"s of a kind unknown to "e' and these see"ed to shed
downward ras of fra$rant li$ht) There was a &road strea" flowin$ &' and I distinctl
saw white clouds reflected in it' and the i"a$es of &ri$ht &irds that were passin$
o%erhead) Beond' in the distant sunn landscape' was a white road' $ro%es of what
looked like cpress trees' and a pillared white &uildin$) Then all faded)

I can ne%er at will call up such scenes' or see the fair &ein$s) 4either can I i"a$ine
what the are $oin$ to sa to "e) The scene suddenl re%eals itself' as if a curtain
were lifted fro" it)

When standin$ upon a &are and lonel "oor in winter' the Teacher ca"e to "e and
said@ 1Let the stillness of this "oorland steal o%er our soul) Let the &eaut of our
inner world re%eal itself unto ou)1

I then &eheld in a flash the soul!side of the "oor' literall clothed with colour' rich
pink and purple in "asses' all $lowin$ and $listenin$ with a kind of ethereal
radiance) 4o &are patches' no peat!holes' &ut all one &la3e of li$ht and colour' wa%e
after wa%e of it' so da33lin$ that I felt as if I could not ha%e &orne the si$ht for "ore

The Teacher then said@ 1The inner soul!side of the earth is alwas &eautiful' and it is
this soul of &eaut in nature that is fore%er seekin$ to &reak throu$h and to transfor"
the u$liness and chaos created & "an) The eternal spirit' in%inci&le and all!

a %eil see"ed rent awa and I saw &efore "e a lo%el su""er scene@ trees' a lake
far off' and near & a $rass slope studded with deep &lue starr flowers) Down this
slope was "o%in$ a &and of "aidens' $olden!haired' ro&ed in white' &arefooted' and
it was the who were sin$in$) I see"ed to $o with the" in spirit' and we passed into
what looked like an a&&e such as Tintern' roofless' and with no $lass in the
windows' throu$h which I saw a$ain the lake &eond) The floor was a lawn co%ered
with daisies) I saw worshippers standin$ around the walls and a"on$st the"
relati%es of " own) I went o%er and stood & the"' and the showed "e that upon
each &road window!led$e was a $reat $olden!lea%ed %olu"e' restin$ on a %el%et
cushion 8 The Scriptures of the World) I saw our Bi&le upon a rich &lue cushion' the
Vedas on a li$ht &lue' Chinese scriptures on a ellow' and the <oran upon a cri"son
one) Then I percei%ed that around the whole &uildin$ & each window stood two
an$els) These an$els were sin$in$ with the choir of "aidens who now stood in the
centre for"in$ a lar$e cross) When the %oices sank into silence' a do%e descended
fro" the hea%ens' followed & a &la3e of intense $olden li$ht that spread o%er the
whole church' and a %oice whispered to "e@ 1The Christ Li$ht)1 ,ll heads were then
&owed' and after a few "o"ents of silence the worshippers dispersed) I was told
later that I had witnessed one of the "an for"s of Christ"as ser%ice on the Third

I should like to sa in conclusion that althou$h this de%elop"ent has "ade "e "ore

ha%e &rou$ht "e "uch peace' +o' and inspiration) I ha%e not once heard or seen

9In answer to a .uestion as to E%enin$ 0editation:

1I consider the e%enin$ hour $ood for "editation for the reason alread $i%en) It is
a&solutel essential that the soul should &e thorou$hl prepared for sleep & a
certain ti"e of rela-ation' & the indrawin$ of spiritual forces' and the .uietin$ of the
outer senses) #a%e I not said' too' that the earl "ornin$ hour is i"portant for the
preparation of the soul for the co"in$ daA I re$ard these two ti"es of our earthl
da as the &est' the "ost fruitful' for the .uiet hour* ne%ertheless' where neither of
these is possi&le' let the soul seek to o&tain a ti"e apart at noon) It is the ordinar
opinion in the East that e%il powers "anifest the"sel%es in the darkness) It is
therefore considered wiser & so"e' to co"e in touch with the spiritual powers
durin$ the hours of li$ht) Personall' I consider that for this %er reason it is %er
i"portant that the soul should co"e acti%el in touch with the spiritual powers after
dark' in order that it "a not e%en unconsciousl &eco"e open to lesser influences)

1Huiet co""union with the ;nseen does not e-haust the phsical &od &ut rather
refreshes it) This is a different practice fro" that of concentratin$ with effort on a

uni%erse' or than those of us who are out of touch with the i""ediate conditions
upon earth) This is &ein$ reali3ed & us to an increasin$ e-tent) We are therefore
&endin$ all our ener$ies now definitel to helpin$ the hu"an race upward) The step
of the ladder whereon we now stand' is that fro" which it is easiest to &end down to
help the cli"&ers &elow)

1Our Brotherhood co"prises "an thousands of "e"&ers' $rouped in different
associations' &ut all workin$ in perfect har"on' each with each' and all with all) We
are now hopin$ to acco"plish this "ost i"portant task of rendin$ the %eils &etween
the earth and the "ore su&tle worlds) Power will &e $i%en to us for the achie%in$ of
this) When we ha%e acco"plished this task' and &rou$ht "ankind to a hi$her le%el'
we shall proceed further on our own e%olution)

1In the "eanti"e "an of us are descendin$ to earth in order to acco"plish our
purpose "ore full' since we shall then &urst the %eil & co""unicatin$ with each
other' each surrounded & his own $roup of disciples) Power fro" the earth side' as
well as fro" our real"s' "ust &e "uch stron$er than it is at present) This is the
reason wh "an of us are on the point of incarnatin$ a$ain durin$ the co"in$ era of
peace and pro$ress in the outer world) The result of this will &e' we trust' a %er
rapid de%elop"ent of the hu"an race in a leap forward fro" darkness into li$ht'
since we are all under the leadership of the Lord Christ) #is word is in our hearts'
and this it is that we shall "anifest in whate%er place or ti"e' here or there)

1Behold with thankfulness the dawn of a new a$e) Take hands with us that ou "a

shadows8a %ale of illusion where thin$s are %iewed out of perspecti%e' not as we
%iew the" fro" the inner li$ht of the Spirit) ,ll that is happenin$ now in the outer
world is one of those passin$ shadows which for the "o"ent &lot out the face of
Di%init fro" our si$ht and hearin$) This will pass) Then shall the %eils &e rent as
ne%er &efore in the histor of the world) I""ense reactions will follow this plun$e into
"aterialis" wherein the races of "en are at present en$ulfed) 0i$ht are the forces
of chaos at work' &ut still "i$htier are those that throu$h the"' and &eond the"' will
e%ol%e the new a$e wherein "ankind shall &e$in to discern at last the face of the
Father as re%ealed unto it & the Lord Christ) 4o lon$er can we let "ankind dwell in
these depths of &lackness without li$ht fro" the &eond* this li$ht "ust penetrate the
outer world of shadow in spite of all opposition fro" i""ature and i$norant "inds)

%ision) The soul would alwas thankfull reco$ni3e and welco"e the li$ht fro" our
spheres' could it &ut release itself fro" the &onda$e of the "aterial "ind which
&linds it to unseen realities)

#arnessed to the senses' the soul runs its course on the outer plane) (arel is the
oke cast off) With thankfulness do we assist those who are endea%ourin$ to stand
upri$ht) The "a+orit of "en are pro$ressin$ as do the ani"als' four!footed' runnin$
