THE CHAMBERED NAUTILUS
Build thee more stately mansions, 0 my soul,
As the swift seasons roll!
Leave thy low-vaulted past!
Let each new temple, nobler than the last,
Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast, Till thou at length art free,
Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea!
MILESTONES OF PROGRESS
Rev. Thomas Grimshaw, a- dedicated medium and able instrument of the ministering spirits of God,
speaking under the powerful inspiration of his illuminated "ghost men," said: "There is a reservoir of Infinite
Powers and Possibilities in every human being."
The development and altruistic employment of those powers and possibilities for the good of all living
beings will carry man from the finite plane to the level of Infinity.
Jesus (Joshua) replying to the query of the bigoted
"The kingdom of God cometh not with observation. Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for,
behold the kingdom of God is within you."
Luke 17: 20, 21.
The development and altruistic employment of the gifts and talents of that inner kingdom for the good of
all living! beings will elevate man from the lowly earth to the vaulted kingdoms of Infinity.
The powers and possibilities of the kingdom of God within cometh not with observation, but with the
continuous development or unfoldment that accompanies genuine spiritual progress.
"He that is greatest among you shall be the servant of all." Service is the mark of greatness! Service is Sal-
vation! One is saved to the degree that one is capable of serving. Enlarged Service is Extended Progression.
,EACH GOOD DEED IS A MILESTONE ALONG THE PATHWAY OF EVERLASTING PROGRESS.
The three astronauts, Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins, photographed our native planet from outer space and
from the surface of the moon. The planet resembles a huge, colourful marble floating in space; however,
physical cameras and human eyes are limited in their powers of discernment. The aspects presented to the
camera and eyes are true to a limited degree, but there is more to the planet earth than meets the camera or the
eye. The mineral ball floating in space, like every physical thing, has its spiritual aspect or side, and the
spiritual aspect or side cannot be seen through outer physical eyes; it can only be seen through inner spiritual
discernment or sight.
The earth floats in a whirlpool or vortex of intelligently directed power. The power of the whirlpool is
termed vortexya and m'vortexya. Vortexya is positive masculine power and m'vortexya is negative feminine
power. The whirlpool of positive and negative power follows an intelligent pattern and causes the planet to
rotate, oscillate and orbit about the sun.
The whirlpool of power, or the vortex in which the planet floats, is divided into three different planes or
plateaus. The loftiest of those plateaus is extremely high in voltage, and is termed the Celestial. The voltage of
the second or middle plateau is much lower in pitch, and is termed the Spiritual. The voltage of the first
plateau is extremely low, and it is termed the Arch-natural. Those three invisible planes constitute the three
unseen bodies of the planet.
Here is the message spiritual discernment would impart to the aspiring student: The planet earth is qua-
druple-bodied; it has an outer dense body, and three finer interior bodies. Those bodies or worlds are the
habitat of mortals and spirits of various grades or degrees of development. You may discern from this that the
planet is inhabited both without in its dense material aspect and within in its finer spiritual aspects. We
mortals dwell in the outer dense body of the planet, and spirit people inhabit its finer interior bodies.
The planet, like a huge, fully supplied, well-equipped space ship, carries us (mortals) in its dense outer
body, and spirit people are carried in its finer interior bodies. Both mortals and spirits are passengers on the
same great planetary ship, and they travel with it as it makes its axial, oscillating and orbital journeys in the
master vortex of the sun.
Both mortals and spirits are temporary passengers on the same great planetary ship, and they will remain
bound passengers on that ship until progress qualifies them for life in the mighty emancipated worlds beyond
the bound heavens of the planet.
From Earth to Infinity is a pattern of Eternal Progression. What is the nature of the endless pattern?
EXPANDING GRADES OR STATES
Eternal Progression is the only mode of life that is accommodated to the everlasting growth of an immortal
man. The title, Eternal Progression, suggests that man survives death and is destined to live forever. What sort
of pattern has been established to accommodate the progress of man? What is meant by Eternal Progression
and what is the form of its program or the nature of its pattern?
A small wild horse evolved and matured to the stature of a full grown domestic animal, and natural man,
through mental freedom and rationality of mind, may partake of Divine Love and Wisdom and progress to the
point of spiritual rebirth. All who experience spiritual rebirth progress from the state of natural manhood to
the state of spiritual manhood. Eventually, all natural men, in the light of the Omniscient, Omnipotent and
Omnipresent Economy of Infinite Being, will progress to spiritual rebirth and become spiritual men. Spiritual
man, the only legitimate son of God, is the only person who is qualified to experience the unlimited blessings
that come to expression through Eternal Progression.
Order is the first law of heaven and Eternal Progression is an orderly, scientific way leading from heaven
to heaven, or from kingdom to kingdom.
Eternal Progression is not a marathon race between distant points in a limited world of time and space. There
are both time and space in the spiritual world, but there are no time and space compulsions or measurements.
In fact, time and space are of little significance in that world.
The limited world of time and space lacks the capacity to accommodate the ever-expanding grades and
states that result from Eternal Progression. Eternal Progression cannot be measured in inches, feet, yards, rods
or miles; it can only be measured by the expanding degrees of love, wisdom and spiritual sense power that are
expressed by the ever-growing spiritual man.
Time in the spiritual world is termed duration. By way of illustration, a thousand years is but a day to those
who are extremely happy, and a day seems as a thousand years to those who are extremely sad. The only way
in which man may change the duration of time is by changing the states of happiness or unhappiness within
Space in the spiritual, world is degree. Space is a matter of similarities and dissimilarities. Those are together
who are similar and those' who are dissimilar are apart. Those who are on the same wavelength are together
and those who are on different wavelengths are separated. You turn the dial on your television set to tune in
on different broadcasting stations, and the degree to which you turn the dial determines the station you get.
The picture which you have been viewing on the first station or channel becomes invisible, and the picture on
the second station or channel which had been invisible becomes visible when you change the dial of your
receiving set. The degree of the Divine Love and Wisdom expressed determines the extent of your spiritual
sense power and that degree is the tuning dial within the being of the spiritual man. Those of the same
wavelength are together though they are separated by many miles and those of different wavelengths are
worlds apart though they occupy adjoining chairs in the same room. This togetherness and separateness is a
literal fact of visibility and invisibility in the spiritual world. The degree to which t you set your dial
determines the television station with which your set is in tune. Thus, it is similar to the time and space of the
spiritual man. Time is a matter of duration, and space is degree to the spiritual man.
The writer has heard spirit people affirm, "I am progressing now." Those spirit people did not mean that they
were advancing over a course of inches, feet, yards, rods or miles, but they were expanding in frequency,
duration and degree through an ever-enlarged dimension of grades and states in spiritual life.
Spiritual progression may be corresponded to the enlarged growth or changes of state that take place between
infancy, childhood, youth and manhood. One does not go but grows, through changes of state, from infancy to
manhood. We do not go from mortality to immortality, from corruption to in corruption, from materiality to
spirituality, from the image of the earthly to the image of
the heavenly, but we grow through ever-expanding cycles of life, through ever-changing states of
consciousness, and the perpetual extension of spiritual sense power. Familiar spirits do not go from the arch-
to the spiritual kingdom, from the spiritual kingdom to the
celestial kingdom, from the celestial kingdom to the etheric
kingdom, but they progress through states of spiritual
rebirth and growth from the lesser to the greater kingdoms of life.
"I am progressing" means that my state is changing from natural to spiritual, from spiritual to celestial and
from celestial to etheric, etc. Eternal progression is a continuous change through expanding grades to higher
and higher states; it is a continuous change from the familiar spirit of the arch-natural kingdom to the saintly
spirit of the spiritual kingdom, from the saintly spirit of the spiritual kingdom to the angel of the celestial
kingdom, and from the angel of the celestial kingdom to the archangel of the etheric kingdom, etc. All higher
beings are higher beings because they have progressed through ever expanding grades and states to higher and
higher worlds of life. One must change one's self if one is to change one's world.
ROADBLOCKS AND DISPENSERS
The millennium has not dawned. The earth has no golden age. There are no spiritual giants working wonders
in the world. We are even minus a silver and a copper age. Actually, we are living in a corrupt and filthy age
of iron and clay. We have fallen into an inferior state, and have become decadent spiritual pigmies. What has
induced our spiritual fall?
The dispensers of darkness have created many roadblocks along the pathway of human progress, and those
roadblocks are responsible for man's extreme loss of spiritual stature. Those roadblocks have arrested the
spiritual development of man and prevented his growth into a magnificent spiritual giant. Who are the
dispensers of darkness and what are some of their roadblocks?
Spiritual ignorance is spiritual darkness, and the blind adherents of ignorance are the dispensers of darkness.
Those adherents are drunken leaders of the masses and eventually all land in the ditch of theological or
There are many false gods, false Buddhas, false Brahmas, false Mohammeds and false Christs in the world. In
fact, the dead-end heavens of the pseudo gods constitute the four dark corners of our planetary temple. The
inspiration of error that is breathed forth from those dark corners pollutes the minds of men and in
consequence those contaminated men establish roadblocks along the pathway of human progress.
The prophets of those four dark corners are "the many false prophets that have gone forth into the world."
Those false prophets can and do deceive the very elect for they can work miracles or produce genuine
phenomena. They can mechanically and magnetically heal the sick,
psychometrize objects and people, deliver spirit messages and prove continuity of life, etc. Partake of their
phenomena, if you will, but scientifically check their phil-losophies. Be not like the ' 'fool who rushes in
where angels are too wise to tread."
The reality of the phenomena presented by the false prophet is no warrant for the truth of his philosophy. The
philosophy of the false prophet is premised in error, superstition and darkness. The phenomena of the false
prophet may truly duplicate the phenomena of the true prophet but there is a world of difference in their phi-
losophies. The philosophy of the false prophet contains a hook, and the purpose of the hook is to make a
catch. The hook is designed to catch men and draw them into the binding net of a dark philosophy. The false
prophets are ardent fishermen of men. The false prophet is overshadowed by familiar, bound and
unenlightened spirits. One, to truly know the prophet, must know the spirits that overshadow the prophet.
Bound, irrational spirits overshadow the false prophet, but free-minded, rational spirits are companions to the
true prophet. "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many
false prophets are gone out into the world." 1 John 4:1.
How may one prove the spirits if there is no communication? One must talk with a spirit or associate with him
cautiously and wisely to prove his status as a spirit of Almighty God. Millions and millions of mortals and
spirits have been caught by a hook of philosophical error; they are bound in the nocturnal webs that have been
spun 30 for them by the dispensers of darkness. One who is bound in earth is, after death, bound in a dark,
dead-end heaven. Any person, irrespective of his worldly position, who teaches or preaches falsity and lives
to a pattern of error is a dispenser of darkness. The dispenser of darkness honestly believes that he is the only
one who is right. He honestly believes that everybody else is dead wrong. Many of the dispensers of darkness
are good but deluded and unwise, and because they have been misled they may mislead others. Such men,
although they may not be morally bad, have a driving compulsion to force everyone else, as a matter of selfish
religious preservation, to participate in their philosophical drunkenness.
Eternal damnation, vicarious atonement, salvation through sacrificial blood or murder, reincarnation, physical
ascension after death, grave sleeping, etc., are a few of the many roadblocks that line the pathway of human
progress. Those many roadblocks have robbed man of his personal responsibility and, through lack of
spiritual exertion because of the savior doctrine, have reduced him to a state of spiritual impotence. Genuine
prophets of light • are conceived, gestated and born in the light; they are never born of darkness. Spiritual
darkness reduces the spiritual stature of man, and begets only spiritual dwarfs or pigmies. There are ninety-
nine grades in our planetary spiritual world, and eventually every man must climb those educational grades
and develop strength, purity, Divine Love, Divine Wisdom and Spiritual Power through the exertion that
comes through climbing.
How may one prove the spirits if there is no communication? One must talk with a spirit or associate with him
cautiously and wisely to prove his status as a spirit of Almighty God. Millions and millions of mortals and
spirits have been caught by a hook of philosophical error; they are bound in the nocturnal webs that have been
spun for them by the dispensers of darkness. One who is bound in earth is, after death, bound in a dark, dead-
end heaven. Any person, irrespective of his worldly position, who teaches or preaches falsity and lives to a

who is right. He honestly believes that everybody else is dead wrong. Many of the dispensers of darkness are
good but deluded and unwise, and because they have been misled they may mislead others. Such men,
although they may not be morally bad, have a driving compulsion to force everyone else, as a matter of selfish
religious preservation, to participate in their philosophical drunkenness.
The Divine Love and Wisdom that actually frees men through processes of spiritual progression, cannot flow
into minds that are bound in error and flooded with irrational beliefs; there can be no inspirational flow of the
Divine Love and Wisdom into bound and irrational minds. The Divine Love and Wisdom will only flow into
freedom and rationality. The state of one's mind determines the quality of the flow. If you are bound in 31
superstition and error and your mind is clouded with irrational beliefs, the light and warmth of Divine Love
and Wisdom cannot enter. If such is your state, you are a dispenser of darkness and a creator of roadblocks
along the pathway of eternal progression.
Darkness is not confined to the religious world, but it has existence in the social, moral, political and
financial worlds as well. Witness your television programs, look through your magazines, read the
newspapers, etc., that promote evil and error. Socially, witness the hatred, bias and intolerance that is
expressed between the various races; politically, witness the selfish rivalry and warfare that is expressed
by those of different viewpoints. Bound and irrational minds, whether religious, moral, social, political or
financial, are non-receptive to the inflow of the Divine Inspiration. Bigoted, superstitious, intolerant,
greedy, selfish, bound, irrational minds, etc., are dark minds; they are closed to the inspirational inflow
of the Divine Love and Wisdom. Such minds are dispensers of darkness and they are creating vast
numbers of roadblocks along the pathway of spiritual progress.
Physical Death, New Bodies and a Second World
"But some man will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come?
"Thou fool! that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die:
"And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat,
or of some other grain:
"But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body.
"All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of
fishes, and another of birds.
"There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial, but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the
terrestrial is another.
"There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star
differeth from another star in glory.
"So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption.
“It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
“It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body." icor. 15: 35 to 44.
An acorn has a physical body. Only when the seed falls to the ground and dies, does it bring forth new
life. The acorn dies and from it comes the magnificent body of the oak tree. "Mighty oaks from little
The physical body dies and a spiritual body is born from it. Physical death is transition. Henry Ward
Beecher once said: "We go to the grave saying a man is dead; but Angels throng about him saying, 'A
man is born."
People can pinpoint the time of the birth of a child into this world; they can estimate the exact time of its
arrival. Because of their precise knowledge, they can prepare for the blessed event; they can provide
clothes, blankets, cribs, etc. Spirit people are thus informed also, and they are aware of approaching
death; they are aware of the approaching transition, or birth, of man from his physical body. Spirit people
are truly aware of the moment of death. We have had some experience with their awareness, as the
following incidents will reveal.
The writer was a guest in the home of a well-known surgeon whose wife was a cloistered psychic.
During the evening, the wife was entranced by a benevolent spirit who informed us, '
We are assembling
birth blankets preparatory to the reception of the spirits of hundreds of children. Gas is accumulating
beneath a school building in Texas, and hundreds of children will be killed in the explosion. Watch your
newspapers for the catastrophe will occur within the week." "Can we not warn them?" was the inquiry.
"No," answered the spirit, "they would not believe you; they would only consider you abnormal or
involved in the event in some manner." Within the week, the headlines of the newspapers proclaimed in
bold print: “More than Six Hundred Children Die in School Explosion."
We were aware of the approaching catastrophe a week in advance. We were alerted by competent spirit
people who had provided birth blankets for the children in advance of their deaths.
While the writer was the pastor of a large church, a member of the parish was stricken with a terminal illness.
The writer visited the stricken lady frequently, but on the final day there were many other visitors. Those
visitors were invisible to natural sight; they were spirit visitors, and they were spiritually discerned. The
writer found himself functioning in a superior state, the eyes of his spirit were opened, and he beheld a
moving ceremony. The ceremony was associated with death, for those spirit people carried a gorgeous
purple birth blanket. The blanket was highly charged with spiritual magnetism, for it seemed to color the
hands of the spirit people who held it. The lovely ceremony ended when they wrapped the blanket about
the spiritual body of the lady, and carried her home. Those spirit people were aware of the imminence of
death, and were present with full equipment to fulfill their ceremonial duties. Death is, indeed, birth, and
competent spirit people are fully advised of the moment. "He shall give his angels charge concerning
thee in all thy ways."
At death the spirit rises at right angles over the head or brain of the deserted physical body. Immediately
previous to the final dissolution of the relationship between the spiritual and material bodies, a bright
stream or current of vital electricity plays energetically between the feet of the elevated spiritual body
and the head of the prostrate physical body.
This teaches us that what is customarily termed DEATH is only a BIRTH of the spirit from a lower to a
higher state; that an inferior body and mode of existence are exchanged for a superior body of
corresponding endowments and capabilities. There is an exact correspondence between the birth of a
child into this world and the birth of a spirit from the material body into a higher world. This is true even
to the umbilical cord, which is represented by the thread of vital electricity, which connects the two
organisms together, until it is severed at death.
Truly, "the body that is sown is not the body that shall be." The living spark, the live germ or pattern of the
potential oak tree is imprisoned in the little acorn. The tree is thus bound in limitation and undevelopment
until the acorn dies and decays. The oak tree comes forth from death, corruption and weakness in the tiny
acorn to live and function in the larger body of a mighty tree. Thus it is with the spirit of man.
The Divine Spark, the Deific Germ, or life pattern of the potential spiritual man is implanted and imprisoned
in the lowly natural man until the natural man dies. The spiritual man comes forth from the weakness and cor-
ruption of the old natural man to the incorruption and strength of a spiritual man. Thus the spiritual man is
Death is actually birth. All men survive death. But some man will say, "How are the dead raised up, and with
what body do they come?"
The bodies of spirit people vary greatly, and the variance is determined by a difference in state and condition,
or by the degree of their spiritual development. The bodies of lofty spirits are corresponded to the glory of the
sun, and they are celestials; others to the glory of the moon, and they are spirituals; others to the glory of the
stars, and they are familiar, or arch-natural, spirits; and others are so low in development as to correspond to
birds, fishes and beasts, and they belong to the animal plane. At the present, we are concerned only with those
whose state of development determines them for the second world, the world immediately beyond physical
death — the spirit world. The bodies of those who enter the spirit world are corresponded to stars for they
differ one from the other, as one star differs from another star in glory.
Stars are seen only in the darkness; they are night bodies. Starlight disappears in the greater light of the sun.
Stars are symbols of selfish individual attainments in the world of human affairs. How often have we heard
the expression, "She is a temperamental star." Temperament is often expressed as self-love or selfishness.
Stars are natural, and they belong to the natural kingdom. The state of life in the second or spirit world is
an arch-natural state, and those who live there, being still of the arch-natural kingdom, are only qualified to
enter an arch-natural heaven. One cannot live in a world which is beyond one's state of development. Thus,
we find beasts environed in the wilderness, fish in water, and birds in the air, etc. A wise Providence frames
and fits the proper environment to the species. The masses of people in this world are natural, they belong to
the natural kingdom, and after death they gravitate to an arch-natural heaven. They are in continuity of the
same state of life in the spirit world as here in the physical world. Physical death creates no break in the
environmental law. A natural man before death continues for quite some time to be an arch-natural man after
death. The spirit world is an arch-natural world; it is a second and higher aspect of nature, and so are the
people who dwell there.
The second world (the spirit world) is a night world, or a world of spiritual darkness. Spiritual ignorance is
spiritual darkness, and many people carry that state with them into the next life. They are in continuity of the
same ignorant spiritual state after death as before. This fact should serve as an incentive to start people on a
quest for spiritual knowledge. One may acquire knowledge of the spiritual world while still living in the dense
natural world. "Seek, and you shall find, etc."
Stars are symbols of the selfish competitive spirit in human nature. Each person is striving to get ahead, or
outdo the other person. In other words, each star is striving to outshine the other star and surpass it in glory.
People carry themselves into the next life, and that includes all of their old superstitious, bigoted, dogmatic,
erroneous religious beliefs, and all of their old selfish, social, and racial attitudes and discords, etc. Those of
the spirit world are in a state of rugged, selfish individualism, and their selfish emanations are seen, like the
stars, only against a backdrop of darkness. The bodies of spirit people are arch-natural, and they are still in the
image of the earthy, they are still familiar spirits, but their bodies are of finer quality than the mundane ones.
The vibratory frequency of those spirit bodies makes them invisible to physical sight, but does not carry them
above the natural kingdom or state of life; they are still arch-natural.
The spirit world (the second world) is framed and fitted to the needs, or the development of the familiar spirits
who dwell there. The spirit world is a reproduction of the physical world, but it is composed of finer astral or
planetary substance. Spirit people (familiar spirits) feel at home in the spirit world because the environment is
counterpart to the environment which was left behind at death on the physical plane. The spirit world is the
old terrestrial world clothed in new and finer substance; it is the life of the old world in a new and finer
The spirit world is an arch-mortal world; there are only arch-mortal spirits dwelling there. Mortality is not
suddenly transmuted into immortality. Physical death does not wave the wand of alchemy and magically
change mortals into immortals; such requires a higher and more advanced death or birth; such requires thirty-
three grades of growth in apprenticeship. This does not mean that the familiar spirits of the spirit world are
bound forever in mortality; it does not mean that there is no avenue of escape from that condition. On the
contrary, spirit people can change their arch-mortal state or condition, and progress into immortality; they can
put off mortality and put on immortality; they can put off the image of the earthy and put on the image of the
heavenly. Progress is a change of state and it is eternal. This fact of life holds good here in the physical world,
in the spirit world, or in any other world. The doors of reformation are never closed against any person, here
or hereafter. Progression is a change of state, and it is eternal. The following quotation is expressive of the
"You are where you are by reason of what you are. If you would be elsewhere, you must change yourself.
Change yourself and you will change your world."
Hell is from the Human Race
Hell is not a lake of fire and brimstone, existing in a specific locality beyond death. Hell is not a diabolic cre-
ation of Lucifer, Satan, or Beelzebub, prince of the devils. Hell is a human creation; it is from the human race,
and one need not journey beyond the boundaries of this physical world to find it.
Hell is a state or condition of warfare, corruption, dishonesty, crime, sexual perversity, adultery, selfishness,
hatred, revenge, murder, jealousy, in harmony, etc., and it is from the human race; the human race is its
Recently the writer was walking down the street in a certain city and he was exposed to a number of vile
words and phrases that were scribbled on the sidewalk. Those filthy words and phrases were objectified by a
human being; they came out of an unclean human mind. That human being was filled to overflowing with
filth, and it spilled out all over the place where men walk. The mind of that person was a raging caldron of
hell, and he left imprints of his character upon the sidewalk. It, like all other infernal expressions, came out of
a human being; it came from the human race.
No unselfish, saintly mind ever starts a war, or commits a murder. Hell is never objectified by heaven. No
saintly or angelic person ever betrays your daughter,
steals your property, or betrays your confidence. Heaven never gives birth to hell. There is no hell in heaven,
and it cannot give expression to that which has no existence within its boundaries. Hell is from the human
race. Which human race?
Hell is from a degenerate human race. Heaven is from a regenerate human race. Both heaven and hell are
from the generate human race. The very lowest and worst hells are from a degenerate human race.
Degeneration is generation gone to hell, and regeneration is generation gone to heaven. Generation is the
middle ground or seedbed of both heaven and hell.
Thorns and thistles, poison ivy and poison oak, venomous fangs and violent stingers, beastly viciousness and
violent hawkishness are qualities that are nurtured in the seedbeds of hell. Qualities of degeneration exist in
generate human beings, and unless conquered or overcome will manifest as hell in the human race.
Degeneration finally results in diabolical impotency and regeneration in deific potency. One who is
degenerate is moving toward diabolical impotency and one who is in regeneration is moving toward deific
potency. False gods move toward insanity, and a total loss of consciousness. True gods move toward
supervision of the magnitudes, and divine consciousness. Travel the narrow pathway of regeneration and you
will become a wise and potent deity; travel the broad way of degeneration and you will become an impotent,
insane devil. Hell is, indeed, from the human race.
Religions that postulate a personal devil had best begin looking for him in man. Lucifer, Satan, and the Devil
are representative names of three degrees, or levels, of degeneration and evil in man. Hell is from the human
race. Hell is man made; it is a human creation.
Hitler had all three levels, or degrees, of evil within himself, and he objectified them during World War II.
Hitler raised hell with six million Jews and he had plenty of visible and invisible help. Hitler not only raised
hell with the Jews, but he raised hell with the entire human race. Hell raisers are both visible and invisible.
Hitlers of both the seen and the unseen raised hell and they expressed no apology, voiced no regret, for the
awful harvest of evil which they poured out upon the world.
The world, at present, is in an infernal state because human beings are making it so. The streets are not safe,
the highways are unsafe, the airways need policing, women are unsafe in the homes, in public places and at
work. Old laws are being strengthened and new laws enacted. Those laws are not being enacted to bring the
devil under control, but to bring evil human beings under control. Hell is from the human race. Doors and
windows are locked not to keep Lucifer, Satan, and the Devil out, but to protect one from evil human beings.
Jails, penitentiaries, and reformatories are not for invisible devils, but for visible human beings. Hell is from
the human race!
An angry god, a cunning devil, and a lake of fire and brimstone have been indispensable allies of the church.
The church has been made strong through fear. Five thousand years is a long time for even a god to be angry,
but an angry god has built a strong church. No detective has ever been able to outwit the devil, and the fuel
bill of an eternal, burning hell must be exorbitant — but a cunning devil and a burning hell have built a strong
church. Fear is the child of ignorance. Fear is vanquished by knowledge and knowledge builds faith or
The church has played upon the superstitious fears of the masses; it has paraded men before the judgment bar
of an angry unforgiving god, had them captured by a cunning devil, and singed them in an eternal, burning
hell, and it has done so for ages. We have come to a scientific stage in evolution when we no longer shudder
and quake in the face of superstitious theological threats. A scientific age has illuminated our minds and made
us understand that evil is a product of degenerate man. In this scientific age, we know that hell is from the
human race. We say to a powerful church, be honest, be illuminated, be progressive in keeping with the
times. Hell is a state of emotion; it is a condition of the mind; it is not eternal. This is the message of a
great scientific age: "The devil with his horns, split hoofs, forked tail, and human body, is a symbol of
the human animal, or beastly man." Degenerate men are the founders and keepers of hell. Hell is from
the human race, and men are in continuity of the same state of life after death; they carry hell into the
next expression of life with them, and continue to objectify it. They raise hell here and they raise hell
over there. All degenerate men are hell raisers. All regenerate men are heaven makers.
Are we hell raisers or are we heaven makers? We are one or the other for heaven and
hell are from the human race!

Oahspe P 549 vs. 13 to 19,
Spiritual darkness overshadows the earth! Spiritual weakness is apparent everywhere! We are all born
spiritually weak and in darkness! The natural kingdom affords no spiritual strength or light. Natural men,
until they acquire the correct state of mind, cannot develop spiritual strength or receive spiritual light.
Spiritual strength is born of omnipotence, and spiritual light cometh from omniscience. Spiritual strength and
light will not flow into bound or irrational minds. Omnipotence and omniscience will only flow into mental
freedom and rationality. Minds that are bound in illogical, insane beliefs are short-circuited from the Infinite
Dynamo of Power and Light.
Spiritual ignorance is spiritual darkness, and spiritual dullness, or insensitiveness, is spiritual weakness. The
masses of people in the natural kingdom are spiritually ignorant and spiritually dull, or insensitive; therefore,
the masses are lost in spiritual darkness and are helpless in spiritual weakness.
Spiritually, the people of the natural kingdom are asleep — they are in a state of hibernation, and it has been a
long, long sleep. Sleep is nocturnal; it usually occurs at night, and it is associated with darkness. The sleep of
spiritual darkness has bestowed a heritage of spiritual weakness upon the sleeper. The masses of people in the
natural kingdom are spiritually ignorant and dull, or insensitive. There is no doubt about it, men of the natural
kingdom, and familiar spirits who are still in the image of the earthly, are existing in states of spiritual
darkness and weakness.
Natural men and familiar spirits have little spiritual discernment; they are spiritually blind and deaf, or spirit-
ually dull and insensitive. Extrasensory powers are rare expressions in the human race. We are a handicapped
race. Spiritually speaking, we are a woefully retarded race. We have schools and gymnasiums, teachers and
physicians, nurses and trainers for the weak and retarded or the handicapped of this natural world. Why do we
lack essential help for the spiritually handicapped and
Presently, the human race is functioning in states of spiritual weakness and darkness. We are spiritually deaf,
mute and blind. We are in various states of spiritual idiocy, and we clearly exhibit it here upon the earth. How
will the human race ever escape from its handicapped and restricted state? Progress begins in darkness,
but what steps determine the beginning? What initial steps must be taken if the human race is to make an
escape from its condition of spiritual dullness and darkness?
Man will never seek »an escape from darkness until he ceases to love the darkness. A lover of darkness is
content to remain in the darkness. Such resemble night birds or creatures of the darkness. Man will react from
the darkness only after he has been mortally wounded by the darkness. Man will react from his spiritually
handicapped condition only after he has been violently afflicted by the condition. Severe affliction will
generate an ardent desire in man to make an escape from his afflictions. Thus the desire for liberty is born,
and the desire for liberty caus-eth the soul of man to come out of darkness.
Spiritual ignorance, or darkness, is hell; spiritual dullness, or insensitiveness, is hell; spiritual blindness and
deafness are hell; spiritual anemia and weakness are hell, etc. Hell is a state of limitation; it is a state of af-
fliction; it is a state of suffering. Man will react from those limitations, and become strong in the direction of
his reactions, only after he has suffered the tortures that are associated with those limitations.
Emancipation from limitation is salvation! Man, to escape the darkness, must come to hate the darkness and
to love the light. Distaste for the darkness, and delight of the light, will inspire man to exert to escape the
darkness. We grow strong through exertion. Only by developing strength may we escape the darkness and
enter the realms of light. Progress comes with strength. Crave the light, acquire knowledge, find delight in
knowing, exert to escape the darkness, and grow strong in spirit. Liberty is the joy of men and angels; the
desire for liberty causeth the soul of man to come out of darkness. We are born in spiritual weakness and
ignorance. Progress does, indeed, begin in darkness.
Light Bearers and Three Progressive States
There are three degrees of light in our planetary spirit world: celestial light, spiritual light, and arch-
natural light. Celestial light is a flaming, ruddy, extremely high voltage light. This is the light of those
angels that live in the third resurrection or heaven. The highly developed ex-human beings who dwell
there are termed Celestials. Spiritual light is a shining white light. This is the light of those saintly human
beings who dwell in the second resurrection or intermediate heaven. Arch-natural light is like the light of
day in our world; it is a compound or mixture of the lower natural and higher spiritual light. This is the
light of those familiar spirit people who dwell in the first resurrection, or the arch-natural heaven of
our planet. The arch-natural heaven is commonly known as "the spirit world."
The light of the dense natural world is dead; it is composed of the radiance of impotent and lifeless
natural fire. Natural light is termed dead because it embodies no deific attribute. Spiritual light is
composed of rays of Good and Truth and they emanate from orbs of Divine Love and Wisdom.
Spiritual light is alive. Natural light illuminates the natural world and the outer physical senses. Spiritual
light illuminates the spiritual world, the inner spiritual senses, and man's understanding.
Celestial angels who dwell in the third resurrection or heaven are dual male and female beings. Men and
women unite in this heaven and form the complete man or angel. Celestial angels are light bearers. The
saintly spirits who dwell in the second resurrection, or heaven, have not yet become angels and they
dwell in the Spiritual Kingdom beneath the Celestial Kingdom. Saintly spirits are light bearers. Arch-
natural, or familiar spirits, have not attained to sainthood; they have not attained to the second or spiritual
heaven. They have not yet put on or developed the image of the heavenly; they are still in the well-
known image of the earthy and, because of their mortal appearance, they are known as familiar spirits.
Familiar, or arch-natural, spirits dwell in the first, or arch-natural, heaven. Familiar spirits are light
bearers; however, there is a vast difference in the degree of light that is transmitted by the three orders of
The light of the Celestial angels is extremely high voltage and it must be lowered in frequency ere it can
be received by the saintly spirits of the second heaven. The light of the second heaven is of lesser
frequency but it, too, is intense, and it can be communicated to the familiar spirits of the first, or arch-
natural heaven only through lines of light which are lowered from congresses of Spirits. The light of the
arch-natural heaven is spiritual-natural; it is a polluted compound. Spiritual-natural light contains some
wheat and a lot of chaff, and it requires much winnowing in order to separate the two. The messages of
familiar spirits may be transmitted to us personally for they are still present with us; they are all about us;
however, we should accept their messages with reservations for their messages are spiritual-natural; they
are still polluted with the errors that have been accumulated in the natural. The wheat of truth, insofar as
their consciousness is concerned, is still highly mixed with chaff. Familiar spirits do not present the
unadulterated truth. The light of the familiar spirit, because of his degree or grade of development, may
be polluted light.
Spirit people do not attain to great wisdom at death. Think not that great wisdom cometh suddenly
by dying. Spirits are easily deceived when they first enter the spirit world. This day in the lower
heavens there are millions of false Brahmas, millions of false Buddhas, millions of false Christs, and
millions of false Gabriel Gods. Whosoever bindeth himself to these names whilst on earth becomes a fit
subject for the forces of darkness and deception. The only bearers of light who are trustworthy are those
who contact the exalted places where wisdom and purity dwell. Only those are trustworthy bearers of the
light who begin to comprehend the ways of the Kingdom of the Almighty.
The Almighty, the Infinite One, has opened the heavens, the spirits of the dead return to us and commune
in the household. We should not flatter ourselves that the whole of the Father's Kingdom is revealed to
us, and that the angels who converse with us can make plain the dominions of the higher heavens.
A state divided against itself cannot stand, even so are the heavens above not divided, but are a
When one spirit comes to you preaching one thing, and another spirit comes to you preaching another
thing, their words are proof that they have not yet entered the harmonious heavens of the Almighty.
Contradictory doctrines are proof of inharmonious relationships or a lack of unity.
It is because of the inharmony of your own soul that you are open to such conflicting messengers or false
teachers. The conflicting messages of such false misguided spirits deny the Person and the Harmonious
Unity of the Infinite One.
The spirits of the lowest heaven, or of the spirit world, who are reliable are free-minded; they are free of
all false gods, and all false creeds and dogmas. Such spirits are not only free-minded, but they are
rational minded; they entertain no irrational, or insane, beliefs. Only free-minded, rational spirits are
qualified to lead us along the pathway of true spiritual progress and unfoldment.
The pathway of progress is an orderly scientific pathway and it leads through three definite states. The first
state is termed INITIATORY, the second state is termed EXPLORATORY, and the third state is termed PRE-
The Initiatory state is a first state; it is the state in which most every spirit finds himself existing just
beyond death. The Initiatory state is called a state of Spiritual Exteriors. All newborn spirits are first in a
state of spiritual exteriors. In other words, each spirit is a spiritual extrovert; each is interested only in
outward things; each is outgoing and interested only in exterior relationships. One who is in this state is
first interested only in the external state and condition of his own finer body. He is surprised to find that
he has a body, and it is free of the pain, disease and deformity that afflicted his physical body. He is
surprised to find that spirits are not just formless clouds, but they have bodies that are perfect in every
way. It is a complete body, and the new born spirit often feels it all over with his hands to assure himself
that it is perfect and complete, nothing lacking.
The newly arisen spirit, having exhausted his interest in his body, manifests interest in his long lost
relatives, friends, companions, neighbors, and eventually in the noted characters of social, political and
religious history, both sacred and temporal, or profane. The newborn spirit is a "rubber necker" for he is
interested in the homes, cities, lakes, mountains, etc., or the topography of the spirit world, etc. The
clothing worn by spirits, the air they breathe, the food they eat, centers his interest in external things,
The spirit, after finally exhausting most of the external interests relative to the world into which death
forced his entrance, or immigration, arrives at a new state of being. The new state is termed Exploratory.
One in the Exploratory state is no longer absorbed by exterior interests; but he is claimed by his own
interior interests, hungers, desires, etc. Thus, the Exploratory is termed a state of Spiritual Interiors, The
spirit has progressed from the Initiatory State and Spiritual Exteriors to the Exploratory State and
What is the nature of the interests, hungers, desires, etc., which grip the attention of the spirit in his new
state? What is the nature of his inward interests, loves, desires, etc., that have been covered over, or
hidden, while the spirit was in the Initiatory state, or the state of Spiritual Exteriors? Are those interests
good or bad, true or false, positive or negative? The spirit will be explored and will prove the nature of
his inner state through exposures. The spirit will be exposed to good and evil, truth and error; and he will
prove the nature of his inner qualities by his reactions in the direction of good or evil. This state may well
be termed Psychological. The Exploratory state is a state of Spiritual Interiors.
The spirit who has his dormant, hidden desires uncovered by his exposure to good and truth and reacts in
the correct direction will move toward the positive side, or toward the third state. The third state is a
Preparatory state; it is a state of Instruction and it is Educational.
The spirit who has his secret, hidden desires revealed through his exposure to evil and error will react in
the wrong direction and move on currents of force which carry him to the animal plane. Such spirits live
on the animal plane, until all of their lower desires have been dissipated; they live in until they live out,
or outlive, all of their lower animal desires. Thus, they are finally conditioned or qualified for the third
state which is Preparatory, or the state of Instruction.
All spirits, who are qualified for the Preparatory state, or state of Instruction, are termed Apprentices, and
they are ready to enter grade one in the first thirty-three grades of the spirit world, or arch-natural heaven.
The Initiatory, Exploratory, and Preparatory States engender freedom and rationality of mind, and point
the way to spiritual progress in the Educational Grades of the Spirit World, or Arch-natural Heaven.
Become an Apprentice and progress from the Arch-natural Kingdom into the higher Spiritual Kingdom
Thirty-three Apprentice Grades
There are ninety-nine grades in the educational system of Atmospherea. Atmospherea is the name which
has been bestowed upon the invisible spiritual portion of our planet by higher spiritual beings; it is the
name of the invisible planetary spiritual world and it is related to the dense visible portion of the planet
as a cause is related to its effect. The planetary spiritual world is termed Atmospherea because it is
composed of three different atmospheres. Spirit people who have bodies of different density breathe
those atmospheres as mortals of earth breathe air. Those atmospheres are also condensed into different
worlds. When the very highest and finest atmosphere is condensed, it forms the Celestial Kingdom; when
the next highest and finest atmosphere is condensed, it forms the Spiritual Kingdom; and when the very
lowest and densest atmosphere is condensed, it forms our Arch-natural Spirit World or Kingdom. Those
atmospheres contain every element that is needed for the sustenance and growth of progressive human
Spirit people progress from lower to higher worlds by enrolling in a preparatory school. The preparatory
school is a place of instruction and it is made up of ninety-nine grades. Those ninety-nine grades are
subdivided into three worlds of thirty-three grades each. There are thirty-three master grades in the Celestial
World, thirty-three craftsman grades in the Spiritual World and thirty-three apprentice grades in the Arch-
natural or Spirit World. We shall consider the lower apprentice grades first of all.
The thirty-three apprentice grades correspond to kindergarten and common school in the educational systems
of this world. Spirit people remain in these lower grades approximately thirty years before completing their
spiritual apprenticeship. They not only receive instructions from higher and higher spirit teachers, but they
serve or learn by doing. The service they yield is the thing that they love and can do best; each begins serving
with whatever talent he has to express. The spirit of man groweth by giving whatever the spirit has to give.
Such is the way of spiritual progress.
Spirit people start their schooling as low grade apprentices and become higher grade as they advance or
progress. One who has progressed or grown to grade twenty-five or thirty is a much higher apprentice than
when he began his upward climb at grade one. Grade one is stationed at the animal plane.
It may be well to state here that the grades were established in our world by superior beings. Those superior
beings evolved or progressed on chains of planets that existed before our planet was ever created or formed.
Those superior beings established the educational system or grades in our planetary spiritual world when
natural man evolved high enough to survive death. The grades were established and manned by graded spirit
teachers that spirits who were ready for instruction might be assisted in their climb into higher worlds. It is a
most remarkable educational system and begets tremendous progressive results.
Corruption must put on incorruption and it must begin its process of purification at grade one. Mortality must
put on immortality and it must begin its transformation at grade one. Spirit man must put off the self-loving
image of the earthy and put on the selfless image of the heavenly, and he must begin his image switch at
grade one. Every spirit who ascends the thirty-three grades in the world of the apprentice is purified,
regenerated and transformed into a new image or being when he graduates from the world of the arch-natural
apprentice into the world of the spiritual craftsman.
The first step along the progressive stairway of the grades is purification. Purification is a great step in the
process of salvation.
"Insaf" is an Egyptian word meaning "a stinker." All unclean spirits, according to an advanced Egyptian
teacher, are known as Insaf spirits or stinkers. All unclean spirits arrive at their filthy states through low level,
sinful thinking, through selfish immoral actions, through erroneous teachings, through bad habits, through
animalism, through carnivorous diet, through cruelty, selfishness, etc.
The unclean spirit takes his first step toward purification when he enters grade one, and his sanitation im-
proves as he progresses or scales the ladder of the grades or spheres.
We have contacted spirit people whose emanations were so vile that we were obliged to flee their presence.
The variety of evil odors are multiple, terrible and offensive. Some of the unclean spirits were held in high
esteem by worldly people when they lived here upon the earth plane.
Such low grade spirits are not qualified to enter the higher grades or planes of life. Such unclean spirits —
such stinkers — will require more than "I believe" or "a religious tag" to qualify them for life and service in
higher worlds; however, all who ascend the grades arrive not only at purification but they come to a state of
Instruction in a preparatory school is essential for all. Instruction, education, growth, development,
progression, etc., in the thirty-three apprentice grades form the only
foundation upon which one may build toward the high voltage life of higher worlds. Instruction,
education, growth, development, service, etc., is the way, and the only way of spiritual progress. Sudden
change would produce such a transformation that one would not know oneself, and it would leave such a
lifeless ache in the void of one's own being that one would be unable to endure the agony. Progress is not
sudden but gradual and eternal. Nature never leaps!
The first thirty-three grades are of the arch-natural kingdom, and one may enter and progress through
those grades while still living in his physical body. Should the individual qualify in all of those grades
before death, he would pass directly from the arch-natural kingdom into the spiritual kingdom without
having to serve an apprenticeship in the arch-natural heaven, or kingdom, after death.
"The doorway to reformation is never closed against any human soul, here or hereafter." Those doorways
are open in each of the thirty-three grades, and all who desire may enter. There is no such thing as eternal
damnation in the economy of Infinite Love and Wisdom. Infants, idiots, the insane, the deluded, the
criminal, the ignorant, the undeveloped, etc., may be treated and healed to the point where they may
enter and through instruction become qualified — or made ready — for new and higher worlds. There
are no lost souls in the economy of Divine Love and Wisdom.
Spirit people who have bound and irrational minds cannot progress through the grades. Such spirits are
held mentally bound or imprisoned by their own illogical, unscientific beliefs in the dead-end heavens of
the four dark corners of the planetary temple. Spirits who are bound by their lower animal natures are
drawn by the law of attraction to the animal plane beneath the grades. Spirit people must attain to mental
freedom and rationality ere they can enter the preparatory state, receive instruction, and progress. Divine
Love and Wisdom will not flow into bound and irrational minds. There is no progress apart from that
potent inflow. Divine Love and Wisdom are to the spiritual man what food and water are to the natural
Each spirit, to progress through the grades, must eliminate all religious, social, political and moral errors
from his mind. The mind must be emancipated from all of the old erroneous creeds and dogmas of
religion, from all social hatreds and superstitions, from all political prejudice and dishonesty, and from
all moral crimes and discrepancies, etc.
Progression through the thirty-three apprentice grades will endow, through growth and development,
every spirit person with a free and rational mind; and with such an endowment, every spirit person is
qualified to advance from the arch-natural heaven of the arch-natural kingdom to the spiritual heaven of
the exalted spiritual kingdom. Progress and become a spiritual Craftsman! Overcome individual
selfishness and rise in the scale of life!
Forces of Resurrection and Spiritual Bodies
Resurrection means rising again; restoration; revival; rising again from the dead. There are wonderful
beings — superior forces who participate in the restoration, revival or resurrection of man. No man can
lift himself by his own bootstraps; each needs help, and each receives help in rising from inferior states
to superior states, from lower worlds to higher worlds. According to sacred writ, even the Nazarene was
assisted by two spirit men in shining white garments when he was raised up from physical death in the
Rising from death in the tomb is physical resurrection. There is, also, spiritual death and spiritual
resurrection. Mortals are spiritually dead, and the process of putting off mortality and putting on
immortality, of putting off the image of the earthy and putting on the image of the heavenly is spiritual
resurrection. Life is a series of deaths or births upward and even as we need help in rising from physical
death, so do we need assistance in rising from spiritual death.
There are thirty-three apprentice grades in the heaven of the arch-natural kingdom or spirit world, and
there are thirty-three craftsman grades in the heaven of the spiritual kingdom. The thirty-three craftsman
grades are sequential to the thirty-three apprentice grades. No man is qualified to enter the thirty-three
grades of the spiritual craftsman until he has mastered the thirty-three grades of the arch-natural apprentice.
Natural man must complete his apprenticeship in the heaven of the arch-natural kingdom ere he can be
resurrected or raised up to the higher heaven of craftsmanship in the spiritual kingdom. Natural man cannot
become a true spiritual man until he masters the thirty-three grades of his arch-natural apprenticeship. Arch-
natural man is a rough stone, and he needs much tooling ere he is qualified to be raised up to the kingdom of
the spiritual man. Such is the way of true spiritual progress.
Skill in the realm of apprenticeship brings us to the point where we must recognize and understand the ne-
cessity of spiritual bodies to spiritual resurrection and progress.
We experience changes of physical bodies many times between infancy and manhood, and each new body
corresponds or harmonizes to the development or growth of the individual. The same law rules with the
spiritual man; he changes bodies in harmony with his spiritual development, growth or progress. But there is
this great difference between physical bodies and spiritual bodies. Physical bodies remain visible at all stages
of development or growth, they are anchored to a common plane, but spiritual bodies become unseen and
function in higher, more invisible worlds during the growth or development of the progressing spirit. Spiritual
bodies are not anchored to one common plane of visibility.
Both craftsman and apprentice spirits may well be termed prophets; they belong to the prophetic realm. The
craftsman spirit may be termed a major prophet, and the apprentice spirit a minor prophet. Both the craftsman
spirit and the apprentice spirit perceive things that cannot be seen through physical eyes, they distinguish
sounds that are outside the range of the corporeal ear, and they feel things that are beyond the reach of fleshy
fingers. The sense range of both the craftsman spirit and the apprentice spirit are beyond the vibratory
boundaries of this dense corporeal world. They see, hear, and feel beyond
the radius of the physical senses. They literally see without physical eyes, hear without physical ears, and feel
without employing physical fingers; they are in truth extrasensory beings. Nevertheless, the sense range of the
craftsman spirit is greatly superior to that of the apprentice spirit.
Craftsman spirits and apprentice spirits live in different worlds. The craftsman spirit lives in a higher world
because he is organically equipped to function in such a world. One cannot function in a higher world until
one possesses a body that is composed of the elements of the higher world. The craftsman spirit is thus
qualified. The craftsman spirit has a spiritual body; he is of the spirit; he is a new creation, born from above.
The craftsman spirit is of the spiritual kingdom because he is born of that kingdom; and he is adapted through
his higher and finer body to that higher and finer kingdom.
The craftsman spirit is triple-bodied; he has physical, ultra-natural and spiritual bodies. The craftsman
spirit is a threefold being. He has physical or first sight, he has ultra-natural or second sight, and he
has spiritual or third sight. The craftsman spirit has three bodies, each higher one finer and more interior
than the other, and he has three degrees of sensory expression. The range of the spiritual senses is as far above
and beyond the range of the astral or arch-natural senses as the range of the arch-natural or astral
senses is above and beyond the range of the physical senses. The craftsman spirit, because of his
tenuous spiritual body and extended senses, is adapted to function in the lofty spiritual kingdom; he is
possessed of spiritual kingdom qualifications. The craftsman spirit functions from the standpoint of heaven
looking back toward the earth, and when he speaks he tells you of heavenly things.
The apprentice spirit is a twofold being; he is double-bodied; he has a physical body and an astral or arch-
natural body, but he lacks the threefold spiritual body of the craftsman spirit. The apprentice spirit has second
sight but he is devoid of the spiritual vision of the craftsman spirit; he has astral or arch-natural vision but he
is spiritually blind. The apprentice spirit functions from the standpoint of the earth looking upward toward
heaven, and when he speaks he tells you of earthly things. The arch-natural or astral kingdom is his highest
plane of manifestation.
The spiritual plane is of the spiritual kingdom, and the astral or arch-natural plane is of the natural kingdom.
The spiritual kingdom is above the arch-natural kingdom as the vegetable kingdom is above the mineral
How may an apprentice spirit acquire the spiritual body of a craftsman spirit and ascend from the arch-natural
kingdom into the spiritual^ kingdom?
The apprentice spirit in ascending the thirty-three grades elevates his understanding to the spiritual kingdom,
and his mind takes root in that higher kingdom. The roots of his mind draw upon the elements of the spiritual
kingdom and from those elements a new and finer spiritual body is formed and born. Equipped with his new
spiritual body, the apprentice spirit is qualified to ascend to the higher level of the craftsman spirit in the lofty
The apprentice spirit, in ascending from the arch-natural kingdom into the lofty spiritual kingdom, does not
ascend alone; he is apprenticed to lofty craftsman spirits every step of the way. When the apprentice spirit
assumes the threefold nature of the craftsman spirit, he becomes a craftsman.
The apprentice spirit becomes drowsy and at the second death is resurrected from visibility in the arch-natural
kingdom to invisibility in the spiritual kingdom. Thus, at the second death or resurrection, corruption puts on
incorruption — or the arch-natural apprentice becomes a spiritual craftsman.
The Second Heaven and Fellow craftsmanship
The second heaven is of a different kingdom than the first heaven. The first heaven or the spirit world,
somewhat like the earth plane, is of the arch-natural kingdom. The second heaven is above the arch-
natural kingdom; it is of the higher spiritual kingdom. There is as great a difference between the spiritual
kingdom and the arch-natural kingdom as between the vegetable kingdom and the mineral kingdom.
The second heaven and the spiritual kingdom are invisible to the first heaven and the arch-natural
kingdom. Only those of the first heaven who have higher spiritual discernment are aware of the existence
of the higher spiritual heaven and kingdom. Even as there are millions on the earth plane who are
unaware of the existence of the spirit world or first heaven, so are there millions in the first heaven or
spirit world who are unaware of the existence of the invisible second heaven or spiritual kingdom.
Sometimes the angelic or saintly spirits of the second heaven reveal the glory of their spiritual bodies to
the bound, irrational, superstitious spirits of the spirit world, but they are violently rejected as being of
the devil and from hell. Thus, spirit people continue to live handicapped by bondage, ignorance and
superstition. Mediums in the spirit world continue to function between that world and the second heaven
but comparatively few, out of the millions, are benefited by the manifestations. People carry their bondage,
ignorance and superstition into spirit with them. Truly, "those who are bound in earth are bound in heaven."
There are millions of low grade, dark corner spirits in the spirit world, and they need and must have the thirty-
three apprentice grades to qualify and condition them for life in the higher spiritual kingdom. The higher
heavens would be polluted and contaminated by such spirits were they admitted without proper preparation or
qualification; their minds must be purified and made free and rational.
The second heaven, or spiritual kingdom, is a mental kingdom and it is concerned with the wonder-working
power of Omniscience; such Deific Intelligence cannot and will not function through minds that are unclean,
bound and irrational. The thirty-three craftsman grades are, indeed, sequential to the thirty-three apprentice
grades. "I believe" and "purgatorial prayers" are insufficient in bringing about the tremendous transition
between the arch-natural kingdom and the spiritual. What is the nature or quality of the craftsman grades?
The spirit world, or arch-natural kingdom, is a world of rugged, selfish individualism; it is a world of selfish
independence. Man, to enter the second heaven or spiritual kingdom, must put away his state of rugged,
selfish independence; he must yield his selfish or self-love state if he is to enter the unselfish world of
brotherhood. The spiritual kingdom is a kingdom of brotherhoods, and each brotherhood corresponds to an
organ of the human body. The second heaven is called an organic heaven because men function collectively
instead of individually or selfishly as on earth and in the first heaven.
The saintly spirits of the second heaven function as the human body functions. The human body is made up of
many organs, and each organ not only expresses its own genius and works for its own good, but it functions
for the good of the whole body. Only in functioning for the good of the whole body does it function for the
good of itself.
The human body presents an accurate picture of the organic heaven. The organs of the human body are won-
der-workers, and the craftsman spirits of the spiritual kingdom are wonder-workers.
Miracles occur in our bodies every minute of each day. The brain is an instrument of thought, memory,
reason, understanding, perception, etc., and those are mental miracles', the eye is an instrument of sight and
sight is a miracle of light; the ear is an instrument of hearing and hearing is a miracle of air and sound; the
nerves are instruments of mental action and such action is a miracle of communication; the circulatory
system is an instrument of blood and blood is a miracle of body building; the lungs are instruments of
oxidation and oxidation participates in the miracle of blood purification and renewal; the liver is
instrumental to the manufacture of bile, and bile, along with other digestive juices, participates in the miracle
of digestion; the digestive system is instrumental to the changing of food into chyle and chyle is the blood
element that is, through alchemy, miraculously changed into the many different types of tissues from
bones to brains, etc. We might recite numerous miracles that occur in our bodies, but there is one important
fact that we must not fail to recount. The miracle workers never go on strike against each other. Those
miracle workers always work together harmoniously for the good of themselves and of the entire body and
thus it is with those who dwell in the kingdom of the spiritual craftsman.
Spiritual craftsmen are assembled in brotherhoods, and those brotherhoods function in spheres of life that
are determined by the nature of their talents. Thus, one finds musicians functioning together as brothers
in the sphere of music, inventors in the sphere of invention, philosophers in the sphere of philosophy,
seers in the sphere of seer-ship, governors in the executive sphere, wonder-working prophets in the
prophetic sphere, and on ad infinitum, or to infinity. As the millions of cells in the various organs of the
body function together in oneness to harmoniously produce their organic miracles, so do the spiritual
craftsmen put away individual self and function as brothers, or fellows, in the Grand Man. Each sphere
of genius, or talent, that is expressed by fellow craftsmen is corresponded to an organ of man's physical
body, and for this reason their heaven is called an organic heaven. The spirit people, who operate in those
harmonious spheres of genius, or talent, because they work together as a harmonious unit, or one, are
termed fellow craftsmen. Men grow or progress from the ascending grades of the arch-natural apprentice
to the ascending grades of the spiritual craftsman.
Qualify for the preparatory grades, and progress! Put aside individual selfishness and progress! Function
organically in a group sphere and progress! Become an Entered Apprentice and progress! Become a
Fellow crafts-man and progress!
Thirty-three craftsman grades
The thirty-three grades of the craftsman are degrees for the development and exercise of spiritual genius
or talent. The graduate apprentice who stands grade one in the kingdom or world of the spiritual
craftsman is a mere beginner in that world or kingdom. The genius or talent of the beginner is expressed
with all of the inaptitude of a beginner. The novice craftsman is a far cry from the high grade master
craftsman. The talents or genius of the spiritual craftsman increases immeasurably as he successfully
mounts the progressive grades. The power of the low grade craftsman in comparison to the power of the
high grade craftsman is as a drop of water to the ocean.
Omniscience, functioning in the mind of the low grade craftsman, teaches him how to manipulate the
elements to produce simple phenomena. When the craftsman joins a band of spirits and exercises his
genius and talent in cooperation with the other members of the band, he ceases to be just a craftsman and
functions ever after as a fellow craftsman. The glory of the fellow crafts man and his functional sphere
increases in power and radiance with each upward grade, or progressive step.
The low grade familiar spirits of the arch-natural kingdom are apprenticed to low grade craftsmen spirits of
the spiritual kingdom. The intermediate grade familiar
spirits are apprenticed to the intermediate grade craftsmen spirits, and the high grade familiar spirits are
apprenticed to high grade craftsmen spirits.
Spheres of craftsmen spirits produce the phenomena that is manifest through bands of apprentice spirits.
Low grade craftsmen spirits produce simple phenomena, such as spirit raps, spirit lights, etc.
Intermediate grade craftsmen spirits produce evidential phenomena, such as spirit voices, and
materialized spirit forms. High grade craftsmen spirits produce amazing phenomena, such as masterly
inventions, masterly music and art, masterly scientific discoveries, philosophy, etc. The higher the grade
of the apprentice spirits, the higher the grade of the craftsmen spirits who operate through them, and the
more wonderful the phenomena.
Fellow craftsmanship is the power back of the throne. We are referring to the throne of spiritual
manifestations. The genius and talent that are expressed by spirits in the many different grades and
spheres of craftsmanship are objectified on the earth plane as spiritual manifestations. Apprentice spirits,
mediums, psychics, seers and prophets are instrumental to those manifestations. The natural and the arch-
natural kingdoms can originate no spiritual talents or gifts. Spiritual talents and gifts originate in the
grades and spheres of the spiritual kingdom, and they are transmitted through the apprentice spirits,
psychics, mediums, etc. of the natural and arch-natural kingdoms to the people of the earth plane.
Healing the sick, making the lame to walk, the blind to see, the deaf to hear; awakening Lazarus from his
death trance, or sleep; changing water into wine; multiplying the loaves and fishes; walking on water;
stilling the storm; casting evil human spirits out of obsessed people; clairvoyantly reading the case
history of the woman at the well, seeing Nathaniel beneath the fig tree, through extrasensory powers,
while he was beyond the range of physical sight; slaying the fig tree with a curse; prophesying relative to
his own death, and the unfaithful conduct of his disciples; communicating with Moses and Elias on
the Mount of Transfiguration centuries after death; improvising a physical body after his own
death, and communicating with his disciples on many different occasions • are evidences that Jesus was
a prophet and that he was .' instrumental to the genius and talent of the wonder-working craftsmen of the
Zarathustra (Zoroaster), the great Persian prophet, fed more than forty thousand people for three days,
healed the sick, raised the dead, liberated imprisoned followers from impregnable jails, etc. Zarathustra
was instrumental to spiritual manifestations that were superior in some aspects to those that were
manifested through the prophet Jesus; however, both were instruments of the genius and talent that were
expressed by saintly spirits from the grades and spheres of the fellow craft.
The spiritual works that prophets and seers performed, and that high grade mediums of the present age
have done, are evidence that the ministering spirits of God, the fellow craft of the second heaven or
spiritual kingdom, were extending their genius and talent through them. Such endowed people were
instruments, or channels for the expression of controlled degrees of omniscience.
Almighty God speaks to his earthly instruments and works wonders through them by means of the
ministering spirits. Those fellow craft — or ministering spirits — are rheostats, stepping down the
wonderful omniscient powers through various channels to the earth plane. Spirits of high grades or
spheres progress to still higher heavens only by lending assistance to those on still lower planes of life
beneath them. Such is the way of Eternal Progression. "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to
minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" I Hebrew 1:14.
Degraded Spirits and False Doctrines
Spirit people may fall from the grades of the spiritual kingdom back into the grades of the arch-natural
kingdom. Spirit people may even fall from the grades of the arch-natural kingdom into the ungraded
animal plane. The spirits who experience such falls are termed degraded spirits. What precipitates them
to a fall, and why do they originate false doctrines?
The saintly spirits of the second resurrection, or spiritual kingdom, are not angels; they are only angelic
in appearance. Saintly spirits function only in omniscience; they have great mental development but the
will is un-regenerated in many.
Genuine angels function in both omniscience and omnipotence; their minds are illuminated by high
degrees of omniscience, and their wills are regenerated, strengthened and sustained by comparable
degrees of omnipotence.
Saintly spirits sometimes lack the omnipotent sustaining will power of the angels, and when the lack is
great enough they are precipitated by temptation to a fall. Such spirits may be compared to mortals who
have strong, highly educated minds and weak, polluted wills.
Saintly spirits, functioning in the bright light of omniscience, may and do unfold wonderful mental genius or
marvelous gifts of the mind. The mystical genius of the saintly spirits is so wonderful, and their gifts or pow-
ers of mind are so marvelous that they often appear as demigods. The most wonderful and marvelous ones,
functioning in certain lofty grades or exalted spheres, become leaders and found heavens that are populated by
millions of lesser developed and gifted spirits. Such leaders are often worshipped as deities by the heavenly
populace. Such a relationship is permissible if exercised fully in keeping with the Laws of Eternal
Progression. Angelic spirits who break the Laws of Eternal Progression begin to fall in grade; they lose
power, their gifts weaken, their luminosity fades, and they become gradually degraded. What is the conduct of
those disobedient saintly spirits who break the law? What must such spirits do to disenfranchise themselves?
What deleterious conduct must saintly spirits pursue in order to precipitate or downgrade themselves to a
We must remember that the saintly spirits of the Spiritual Kingdom are not angels; they only appear
outwardly as angels. Angels are of the Celestial Kingdom. The Celestial Kingdom is above the Spiritual
Kingdom, and Angels are distinctly higher than the saintly spirits of the Spiritual Kingdom, or Second
The angels are superhuman; they are ex-human beings, and they are above the saintly human spirits of the
Second Resurrection, or Spiritual Kingdom. May we remind you again, Angels are above both the Arch-
natural and the Spiritual Kingdoms; they are in a higher grade of progression — or state of evolution; they are
of the Celestial Kingdom.
The saintly spirits are still somewhat of the arch-natural kingdom; they are still natural-spiritual and they may
or may not be tempted to a fall by their lingering natural human traits. Angels have risen superior to the
natural human kingdom and can no longer be tempted by the natural human. Angels are, therefore, immune to
natural human temptations and falls.
Angels are dual, male-female beings, and they constantly look above themselves to Infinite Being and aspire
to His higher worlds.
Saintly spirits are granted the same privilege, but they sometimes lose their perspective and fail. Those saintly
spirits fail because they fall from the love of Om-Na (Jehovih) and belief in the resurrection to higher worlds
into a degrading love of self, and a tendency toward lower worlds. Any saintly human spirit who falls in love
with himself or becomes overly prideful of his genius is on the way to a grave and terrible spiritual fall. Such
spirits, functioning as gods, drag thousands of millions of spirit subjects into a descending vortex of evil and
darkness with them!
It is recorded in the libraries of heaven that "Ctusk" was such a spiritual deity; he was a wonder-worker in
omniscience, but he lacked the dual and omnipotent qualities of an Angel. Ctusk, for a lengthy period of time,
was a follower of Jehovih and a believer in resurrection to higher worlds; however, he fell into disbelief.
Ctusk's fall into disbelief and into the love of self degraded him and thousands and millions of his subjects.
The narrative of Ctusk's reign, fall into a human or man-made hell, and rescue there from is recorded in the
libraries of heaven, and any regenerate spirit who desires may read as he runs or progresses.
Ctusk's self-love reached such a high pitch of fanaticism that he renamed himself. He called himself Ahura
Mazda, meaning "the all highest light."
Ahura Mazda fell from the grades of the Omniscient Spiritual Kingdom into the lower grades of the Arch-
natural Kingdom. Ahura Mazda was confronted by his subjects about the fall in grade and the subsequent loss
of power and intelligence. The threatening attitude of the subjects rendered Ahura Mazda desperate but
instead of honestly admitting his mistake he resorted to "the big lie." He covered his fallacious actions by
issuing a false doctrine,
"The Big Lie," the false doctrine which was employed by Ahura Mazda to allay the threat of his subjects was
the false doctrine of reincarnation.
Ahura Mazda (Ctusk) threw philosophical dust in the eyes of his subjects when he proclaimed that
progression was not a perpetual forward and upward movement into higher worlds, but a backward and
downward movement into lower worlds.
According to Ahura Mazda’s (Ctusk's) doctrine of reincarnation, one puts off mortality and
corruption by going backward and downward into mortality and corruption, not once, but scores,
and hundreds and thousands of times. Any spirit who would comply with such advice would certainly
become a very unclean and filthy spirit; he would become a "stinker." One would have a difficult
time putting off the image of the earthly by repeatedly putting it on again. Such conduct would not
help one to assume the image of the heavenly. One assumes the image of the heavenly, not by
going backward and downward, but by going forward and upward through the educational
grades of the ever-ascending heavens. One can never become pure and clean by bathing in polluted
water, and one can never become immortal through repeated rebirths into mortality. The student
who confines his educational experiences to the rudimentary kindergarten will never, never, never
graduate magna cum laude from the upper grades of a great heavenly university! The heavenly
grades are a great university. We affirm that one goes forward and upward through the grades of the
Planetary Spirit World by climbing those educational grades and by mastering each grade as one
climbs. Put on the heavenly by practicing the principles of the heavenly and graduate Magna Cum
Laude from the Great Heavenly School.
But some will ask, "Why do I have memory of past lives?" Dear one, you have memories, all right, but
they are not memories of your past lives.
You have genetic memories. Genetic memories are ancestral memories. Just as you inherit bodily
characteristics from your ancestors, so do their life experiences often transmit themselves, through
channels of mental inheritance, into your memory? You can very easily mistake the life recordings of
your ancestors for memories of your own past lives. Do not confuse your life memories with genetic
memories. Do not confuse your so-called past life memories with the inherited experiences of your an-
Next, you may confuse your life memories with psychometric memories. Psychometric memories are
the memories of nature. Natural inanimate objects register all the events of life, human and otherwise.
Any competent psychometrist can prove this to be a fact. You may be in a psychometric state during
sleep and mentally inbreathe events from the memory of nature. Such dream-experiences may be so
vivid as to appear as events in your own past life. Check well against the possibility of events in the
memory of nature pervading or invading your own memory. It is possible for psychometric memories to
enter your subconscious mind during sleep and to be given up to consciousness during wakefulness.
Check well against psychometric experience being mistaken as events in your own past life. Be not
deceived by the memory records of nature.
The pressure of telepathic flashes from the millions of mortal minds about you may be received and
misinterpreted as experiences of a former life. Screen well your
Again, you may be deceived by your somnolent experiences and mistake them for events in a past life. A
very great Seer says: * When the natural man sleeps, the spiritual man wakes."
The spirit is attached to the physical body by an elastic umbilical but it is released during sleep and floats
above the physical body. The spirit recharges with subtle spiritual forces while in the above position. The
spirit often travels from the physical body at night; it meets people, participates in events, and has vivid
experiences. The current experiences of the traveling spirit may be confused with experiences in a past
life by the person when he returns to wakefulness in his physical body. Instead of being experiences of
a past life, they may be vivid events in a future life; they may be fore gleams of the future.
Again, all sorts of imaginary past lives may be conjured up through self-hypnosis, Hypnotists, through
suggestion, may even make you impersonate a monkey; however, the impersonation is not a past life.
Beware of the person, even though he may be honest, who professes to regress you into a past life. The
famous Bridey Murphy case, instead of uncovering a past life, brought to light or exposed an obsessing
"Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered
into him." St. Luke 8:30. Jesus did not regard those legions of evil spirits as past lives, but he recognized
them as devils, and he healed the man by casting them into a trap of swine.
The last aspect of memory with which we will deal is spirit association, obsession and possession. The
life events of spirit associates, the life events of obsessing spirits, and the life events of spirits who stoop
to the low level of possession during or after the birth processes, as in reincarnation, seep or are forced
into the memories of victimized people, and are mistaken for memories of their own past lives.
The individual who thinks he has had scores, hundreds and thousands of past lives, and brags about it,
has instead inbreathed into his own memory the life experiences from the memories of scores, hundreds
and thousands of obsessive and possessive spirits. He has been obsessed by legions of spirits.
The young man who was dispossessed by Jesus of legions of evil, obsessive and possessive spirits had
the memories of legions of evil spirits coloring his own frail memory. You will recall that those legions
of evil spirits asked for the privilege of entering the swine. You will recall, also, that another young man,
after he had been dispossessed, fell as one dead, but was raised up to consciousness again by the Master
Jesus. The young man was the victim of reincarnating spirits — spirits who had robbed him of life and
vitality. Check you’re so-called past life memories. They may be from the memory of spirits.
Even the life memory of good associate spirits may creep into our memory, and be accepted as events in
a past life. A friend of the writer had repeated visions of having been killed at a fence while riding a
horse. He was inclined to believe that such was the mode of his passing in a former life, until he
attended a seance in London, England, and was informed by an associate spirit (a spirit guide)
that such was the mode of his passing from this life. The so-called past life memory had come
from the memory of an associate spirit. Check well the so-called memories of your past lives, for they
may have come from the memory of spirits.
Oskenonton, the noted Indian baritone, informed the author that Indians, in weaving their blankets,
always left an imperfection, for as they say, "Only the works of the Great Spirit are perfect."
The works of the Creator are perfect, and they demand no repeated reincarnations in flesh!
The rudimentary material plane is the seed plane and, in the formation of the animal (or natural) man, its
purpose is solely gestative and maturative. When the fetus of the animal child arrives at the blossom
stage of development, it is pollinated with a Deific Germ. The Deific Germ unfolds at an indeterminate
date into the true spiritual man — a true son of God.
There are four dark corners in our planetary temple. Those four dark corners were created by four false
spirits — by four fallen, degraded impersonators. Those degraded impersonators, impersonated four true
prophets, and perverted their teachings until there was bondage instead of freedom, darkness (ignorance)
instead of truth (light), hatred instead of love, and earthly retrogression in place of Eternal Progression.
Those four true Prophets were Brahma, Buddha, Mohammed and Jesus (Joshua). We have neither the
time, space nor inclination to name the degraded spirits who falsely assumed the mantles, rudely
impersonated those great Prophets and perverted the truths which they brought to the world. The
impersonations and perversions of those false spirits have created conditions of ignorance, superstition,
dogmatism and bondage in our planet. The four false gods, along with their many false prophets, are
responsible for the four dark corners in our planetary temple; they are responsible for a dark world of
religious, political and social bondage. False doctrines come from fallen, degraded spirits; they result
from the actions of false gods and false prophets, and they are, indeed, the anesthesia of the people.
All of the diseased social conditions of our Planet may be ascribed to degraded spirits. Degraded, fallen
spirits are the selfish or satanic authors of all false doctrines. Selfish (satanic) minds pervert the
A self-proclaimed wise spirit advised his listeners in a book which we possess, "to look about for a
young pregnant woman and possess her child at birth." What right has any spirit to possess the helpless
child of an unsuspecting mother at birth, or at any other time? "Wise is the mind that lets every other
Infant possession is a low form of illegal obsession. New born infants need no selfish obsessions or
possessions in order to manifest individuality and evolve personality. If left alone, they will in time
manifest their own strength of individuality and evolve their own glowing personality.
The doctrine of reincarnation is an invalid excuse for sensual spirits to commit illegitimate obsessions. It
seems easier for worldly spirit people to tend earthward and retrogress than to aspire heavenward and
progress. The statistics accumulated by Carl A. Wickland, M.D. through years of practical research tend
to bear this out. Here is his statement to the writer: "Some of the most obsessed people in the world are
those who believe in the doctrine of reincarnation."
Dr. Wickland is author of the book, "Thirty Years Among the Dead." Dr. Wickland was also instructed by
Spirit how to build a static-electrical machine. The machine was employed to dispossess people of
obsessing spirits. Mrs. Wickland, a wonderful trance medium, was employed as a trap in which to catch
the obsessing spirit after he had been electrically exorcised from the being of his victim. The trapped
spirits were educated and introduced to the progressive grades when reformation was successful;
otherwise, they were committed by psychic police to spirit prisons for rehabilitation. It was the very great
privilege of the author of this book to sit in that static-electrical machine and to experience its effect
within his body. He, also, witnessed the educational processes that were employed upon the trapped
spirits. The wonderful institution operated by Dr. Wickland was abundant proof of his success.
Man attains to the expression of spiritual genius, not through repeated rebirths in dense unspiritual
matter, but in the following manner: A hen hatches her eggs and develops her brood beneath the
magnetic warmth of her wings; and the spiritual genius, talents or gifts of man are unfolded through the
attendance or electro-magnetic overshadowing of bands of saintly spirits. "0 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how
often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings,
and ye would not!" Matt. 23:37.
Concerning corporeal injustices: Mortal handicaps and mundane inequalities occur — not because of
one's good or evil conduct in some past Me — but because men have failed to sustain their contact with
the Mighty Causal Powers that control and balance the Scales of Justice.
The Powers that control the Scales of Justice are above — or in a higher vibratory scale — and if I
sustain my contact with Them, They will hold my life in perfect balance, and the dark forces of evil or
unbalance shall be unable to come nigh me!
Total unbalance or injustice comes with the forces of evil and error, and complete justice or balance with
the Mighty Forces of Good and Truth. Only when the forces of evil and error are countermanded by the
forces of Good and Truth may man walk in perfect freedom and experience perfect justice or balance.
The Rod of Omnipotent Power and the Staff of Omniscient Wisdom comfort me; they provide a feast for
me in the presence of my enemies; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all
the days of my life, and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever. One never finds the Scales of
Justice unbalanced in the House of the Lord, and one never finds them balanced in the house of evil and
error. When one progresses from the Mortal House of Evil and Error to the Immortal House of Good and
Truth, the Scales of Justice will balance Perfectly and Forever.
Reject every degraded spirit and all false doctrines. Seek to come beneath the overshadowing influence
of wise, loving, saintly spirits; sit in spiritual crescent or a sound developing circle; unfold your spiritual
genius; devote it unselfishly to all mankind and PROGRESS ETERNALLY. ••••-•.
Forces of Resurrection and Celestial Bodies
The forces of resurrection are parental in function. Just as unborn infants need earthly parents and
relatives for birth and growth while in this physical world, so do spirit people need assistants for the
rebirths, many body changes, and growth in the spiritual world. Just as infants are nourished, sustained,
clothed and educated until they attain to a state of maturity or self-sufficiency in this world, so are spirit
people assisted to embodiment and maturity in higher worlds.
Saintly spirits of the Second Resurrection, or Spiritual Kingdom, functioning parentally, assist familiar
spirits of the First Resurrection, or Arch-natural Kingdom, to embodiment and maturity in their
Kingdom. In turn, the saintly spirits of the Second Resurrection, or Spiritual Kingdom, are assisted
parentally by Planetary Angels to embodiment and maturity in the Third Resurrection, or Celestial
Kingdom. Mortal parents, familiar spirits, saintly spirits and celestial angels constitute corps of parental
spirits, or the Forces of Resurrection.
Mortal parents of the natural world, or earth plane, provide the nourishment or food elements which
are utilized by the incoming infant to build its earthly bodies. The infant, with this assistance, is able
to embody itself over and over again from fragile impotency to potent or mature manhood.
Genuine Planetary Angels (ex-human beings), exercising the power of: Celestial parenthood,
resurrect or raise up vast families of saintly spirits of the Spiritual Kingdom to life and progress in
the higher Celestial Kingdom. The lifting process is gradual — or by ascending grades or degrees —
from the lower kingdom to the higher.
Spirit people cannot be resurrected to the Celestial Kingdom until the thirty-three grades of the
Arch-natural or Apprentice Kingdom, and the thirty-three grades of the Spiritual or Craftsman Kingdom
have been mastered. Each spirit who is resurrected or raised to the grades of the Celestial Kingdom must
have sixty-six grades of kingdom life beneath him to serve as a foundation of sustaining growth or force
ere he is qualified to live and function in the lofty Celestial Kingdom, Spirit people must be endowed
with Celestial bodies ere they may live and function in the Celestial Kingdom; they must be endowed
with Celestial qualifications.
The parental angels of the Celestial Kingdom furnish Celestial nourishment to the saintly spirits of the
Spiritual Kingdom and from this nourishment their Celestial bodies are gestated, born and matured.
The saintly spirits of the Second Heaven, or Spiritual Kingdom, must possess appetites for Celestial food
ere they will accept the nourishment of the Celestial Kingdom. The Angels stimulate the appetites of the
saintly spirits for Celestial food; they administer a mighty Celestial tonic.
The Celestial tonic is a compound of awe inspiring demonstrations and astonishing revelations. Those re-
velations are expressions of advanced omniscience or celestial wisdom and the demonstrations are
expressions of superior omnipotence or celestial power. The phenomena expressed by means of the
regenerate will and understanding of the Celestial Angels is awe inspiring and astonishing beyond
The Apostle Paul "met a man who had been caught up to the third (Celestial) heaven, and saw things
for the tongue to speak.'' Those awe inspiring and astonishing (beyond words) experiences
demonstrated and revealed by the Celestial Angels are elements of the mighty Celestial Tonic. The
Celestials whet the appetites of the lower saintly spirits and provide magnificent banquets of
sumptuous foods for the development of higher Celestial bodies. What is the nature of a Celestial
"And of the angels he saith, who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire." Heb.
The Celestial body is one of flaming light. The Celestial bodies are sun-like bodies, and spirit people
of lesser development cannot gaze upon them because of the excessive brightness. Celestial angels
are obliged to lower the light in order to expose the glory of their beings to the vision of lesser
developed spirits. Celestial bodies are like mighty arc lights that can be adjusted to accommodate the
vision of inferior beings; however, Celestial Angels appear normal to their own.
"Man did eat angels' food: he sent them meat to the full." Ps. 78:25. Yes, the parental angels of the
Celestial Kingdom furnish celestial nourishment to the saintly spirits of the Spiritual Kingdom, and
from this food the germs of their Celestial bodies are developed and matured. The saintly spirits,
their metamorphosis complete, are raised en-masse from the Spiritual Kingdom to the Celestial. The
Celestial Angels are the masters who raise the candidates.
Celestial bodies are of higher vibratory frequency than are spiritual bodies, and those who dwell in
higher dimensions of life are invisible or unseen, except through extrasensory powers, by those who
dwell in lower kingdoms. Thus, familiar spirits are invisible to mortals of earth; saintly spirits of the
Spiritual Kingdom are invisible to familiar spirits; and Celestial angels are invisible to those who
dwell in the Spiritual Kingdom. Celestial bodies are the highest and most radiant of all planetary bodies.
Life is a series of deaths, or births, upward and one cannot live to the New until one dies to the Old!
The Third Heaven and Planetary Masters
The Third Heaven is the highest and last heaven in our Planetary chain. The Third Heaven, like the two
lower ones, is a bound heaven. Planetary heavens are termed "bound" because they are attached to a
planet. The Third Heaven is attached to the Planet Earth and it is restricted by its attachment. Those
planetary restrictions result in planetary bondage. All who dwell in Mother Earth, whether the dwelling
be on the mineral ball or in the Third Heaven, are bound spirits. Bound spirits are all who are being
carried by, or nurtured and developed in the body of Mother Earth. We are bound to Mother Earth for the
same reason that the fetus is bound to a mortal mother. We are planetary fetals, gestating in the great
The Celestial Angels are nearer to emancipation than any other dwellers of the Planet. Ere the Celestial
Angels are emancipated from the Planet, they must demonstrate mastery over the Planet. Every last line
of attachment that binds a Celestial Angel to the Planet must be mastered and severed. The severance of
all attachments to the Planet Earth is what constitutes Planetary Emancipation and Mastership.
What are some of the lines of attachment which bind Celestial beings to the Earth? The desire to fulfill
some earthly function, or fulfill some planetary office and bring it to a fruitful and successful conclusion
is one line of attachment. Ancestral responsibility or the attachments that are associated with genetic or
family relationships. In other words, lineal loves form bonds of filial attachment and those bonds will
delay your movement into realms of the emancipated. Attachment to the glittering non-progressive
environment, etc., will delay the movement of the Celestial being into the Universal Realms of the
Emancipated. Attachment to your native Planet and a powerful reluctance to turn your back upon it or
give it a final and lasting farewell is another force that will stay your progress and prevent your entrance
into Realms of Emancipation.
Planetary Masters are those who have severed all lines of planetary attachment. They are the greatest
beings on the Earth. Those who are greatest of all are competent to serve all. They are high-raised above
the differences and divisions of all. There are no Americans, Englishmen, Frenchmen, Russians, Chinese,
etc., in their pattern of life. All are united in one great race — the race of Deific Men or Angels. There
are no political parties, social barriers, poverty demarcations, prideful rich, selfish criminals, etc. to
create divisions in their magnificent and exalted pattern of life. All are one in the expression of their
mighty Planetary Mastership. Every genuine Celestial Angel is free-minded and rational. The inspiration
of Divine Love and Wisdom flows into them; they are completely free of all religious creeds, dogmas,
priest craft, etc.
The true Planetary Master is free of the Planet; he is ready to leave the Bound Heavens of the Planet.
How has the Planetary Master attained to his qualifications? What exalted Pattern of Life has been
utilized in bringing him to his mighty state of Planetary Emancipation? The secret of his attainment is
concealed in an educational system; it is a product of his Celestial training. World emancipation is
attained through a process of scholastic metamorphosis. Each Celestial Angel is emancipated and
becomes a Planetary Master through the transformation or renewing of his mind. "Be ye transformed
through the renewing of your mind!"
Thirty-three Master Grades
In the Thirty-three Apprentice Grades of the First Resurrection, or Arch-natural Kingdom, the spirit
person progresses or outgrows most of his selfish desires; he no longer finds delight in working for
himself alone. The candidate for the higher life loses his self-love and progresses or grows into a desire
to help others, Those higher loves or desires evolved grade by grade, equip him with a new and finer
body and qualifies him for the Second Resurrection, or advancement into the Spiritual Kingdom.
In the Thirty-three Craftsman Grades of the Second Resurrection, or Spiritual Kingdom, the spirit person
progresses or outgrows most of his limited group or organic loves or desires; he no longer finds delight
in working for a limited craft or brotherhood. The loves or desires of the candidate progress or expand
into the longing or aspiration to function in a world-wide or universal craft or brotherhood. Rather than
just function in one limited organ or craft of the Planetary Grand Man, the candidate now desires to serve
and express his love in the entire being of the Grand Man. Those higher loves or desires, evolved grade
by grade, equip him with another new, higher and finer body and qualifies him for the Third
Resurrection, or advancement into the lofty Celestial Kingdom.
The Thirty-three Grades of the Celestial Kingdom comprise the school of the mighty Planetary Masters.
In those grades is the curriculum that helps form the mighty Planetary Master; they are the university
grades in the highest, loftiest, grandest School of Life in our Planet. The Planetary Master who has
matriculated in the Celestial grades, can stand unaffected in the presence of the most roseate and
ebullient delights that the world can afford or conjure; he can turn his back without suffering a single
pang of regret upon all colorful and exciting Celestial joys. All Planetary Masters are ready to molt the
final chrysalis of Mother Earth; they are qualified to leave all of her bound heavens and enter realms
of the Emancipated in Etherea. Ere the Planetary Master is fully qualified to leave the highest
precincts of his native Planet, there are two important steps which must be taken. First, he must
progress completely beyond the world or dimension of human existence. Second, he must unite with
The first step takes place as follows: In the Grades of the Celestial kingdom, spirit people cease to be
saintly spirits, they cease to be just wise and good spirits, they experience a metamorphosis of being
— and become Angels. No man is truly immortal until he becomes an Angel.
"Jehovih said: Because of My presence quickened I into life all that live, or ever have lived.
"Because I am male and female, even in My likeness, thus made I them. Because I am the power to
quicken into life, so, in likeness of Me thus, made I them, and with power to bring forth.
"According to their respective places created I the living; not in pairs only, but in hundreds of pairs
and, thousands, and in millions."
Oahspe, Book of Jehovih, P. 9:5,6,7. Saintly spirits pass through a state of metamorphosis and
become Angels through reunion with their complementary halves. The Twain one, who were
separated just after Planetary Entrance, are reunited again just before Planetary Departure. The
complementary reunion results in metamorphosis and the production of an Angel. "The
Word of Creation" (the Angel) is lost in the mortal human animal and it is recovered in the Immortal
Human Angel. It is only through the recovery or metamorphosis of being that man may become an
Angel, complete the second step in the last of his Celestial Experiences and marry Om-Na, or unite
with Omniscient, Omnipotent Deity. Om-Na is the positive and negative, or the masculine and
feminine poles of the Infinite Dynamo. In this marriage, the Creative Word (or Planetary Angel) is
reunited to Deity, and the result is termed RESTORATION.
The Celestial Angel has reached such a high state of purification at this stage of his progression that he
can look out of himself and, through his own transparency, behold the Representative Form of Deity to
whom he is being wedded.
One must overcome individual or self-love in the First Resurrection, one must overcome organic or
group loves in the Second Resurrection, and one must overcome all world loves or attractions in the
Third Resurrection. One is not qualified to leave the Bound Heavens of the Planet until one has attained
to such a masterful state or degree. The luscious, golden fruit of Divine Wisdom has come forth from the
beautiful and fragrant blossom of Divine Love in the Thirty-three Master Grades of the Third
Resurrection, and the coming forth qualifies the Celestial Angel for life in the Emancipated Heavens.
The Golden Harvest is ready for the reaping. Who shall reap the ripe yield of the Bound Heavens?
Filled Heavens and Empty Hell
Those on planes of life above can progress to still higher planes only by extending helping hands to those
on planes of life below. The familiar spirits of the First Resurrection can progress to the Second
Resurrection only by extending helping hands to mortals and to the evil (unripe) spirits of the first and
highest human hell. The saintly spirits of the Second Resurrection can progress to the Third Resurrection
only by extending helping hands to the satan (selfish) spirits of the second or middle human hell. The
angels of the Third Resurrection can progress into the Emancipated Realms of Etherea only by extending
helping hands to the human devils of the third and lowest human hell.
We repeat, evil spirits, satans, devils are symbolic words and they are representative of the degrees
of evil into which human beings may fall.
How do spirit people empty the hells and fill the heavens? What is the nature of the helping hands that
are extended from spiritual beings in higher worlds to human spirits in lower worlds? What therapy is
employed by spiritual beings in higher worlds to extricate spirit people from bondage in lower worlds?
Helping hands are wise hands; they are loving hands; they are uplifting hands; they are saving hands.
The spirit people who extend helping hands to those on inferior planes of life are not sadistic, they are
not intolerant, they are not dogmatic, they are not judicial, they are not hateful, they are not cruel, they
are not unforgiving, they are not revengeful, etc.
The spirit people who extend helping hands to the needy are ministering spirits; they are expressive of
the all-love and all-wisdom of the Creator. There is no room in their philosophy for the horrible doctrine
of eternal damnation. There is no room in their philosophy for vicarious atonement — in other words,
salvation by murder. There is no room in their philosophy for heavenly reward or eternal punishment.
The ministering spirits know that "we reap as we sow" and if we find ourselves in a heaven or hell, it is
of our own making. "Heaven is not lo here or lo there for the kingdom of God is within you," and so is
the kingdom of hell. Right mental action produces heaven and wrong mental action produces hell.
Heaven and hell are not rewards or punishments, but they are the result of right and wrong mental
conduct or action. They are constructive or destructive effects.
Ministering spirits are selfless and humble, whether they are Familiar Spirits of the First Resurrection,
Saintly Spirits of the Second Resurrection, or Angels of the Third Resurrection.
Ministering spirits could never enjoy life in a higher world if they were to heartlessly turn their backs on
those who are stalled in delayed action beneath those higher worlds.
We met a lady who believes that her efforts are helping to redeem Lucifer. We cannot certify as to the
logic of her efforts, but we do know that ministering spirits can enjoy higher estates only by assisting
unregenerate spirits to emerge from lower states. Ministering spirits can enjoy a lofty state of life only by
creating an empty hell or by filling heaven with the regenerate. Ministering spirits must empty hell and
fill heaven ere they may find the inner peace to enjoy a higher heaven.
"Jesus, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: went and preached unto the spirits in
prison." 1 Pe. 3:18, 19. Even Jesus was obliged, according to this after death account of his activities, to
contribute his share in producing an empty hell. Evidently Jesus had to fulfill the law in order to further
his own progress into higher kingdoms of life.
Divine Love and Wisdom is the therapy that is employed by the ministering spirits in their effort to
empty hell and fill heaven. Oh! the joy that reigns in heaven over the repentance and progress of
a single sinner! The character of unregenerate spirits can change; it can grow or progress. The
ministering spirits are aware of that fact and the therapy of Divine Love and Wisdom takes many forms
in the process of Spiritual Regeneration. Zeochlia, a saintly angelic spirit, utilizing Divine Love and
Wisdom, overshadowed a child and a synthetic dog in her effort to empty hell and fill heaven. Zeochlia
would overshadow the child and the dog with a protective aura of Divine Love and Wisdom, guide them
through the hells until there was a favorable reaction from some unregenerate spirit, and then lead the
spirit step by step from darkness to light, from the unregenerate into the regenerate state. Some spirits
would see the child, others would see the dog, and ask, "What are you doing here?" There comes forth
from recognition communication and through communication a leading forth of the dark spirit into the
light of regeneration, or progression.
Many spirits, in order to escape the awful agony that is associated with the false doctrine of eternal
damnation, make a complete withdrawal from the plane of consciousness. Such spirits, and they are
manifold, are recalled to consciousness, recognition, and communication through the therapy of music.
Blessed ministering spirits sing songs of love to them until they react in helpful conscious ways and enter
the progressive grades. The dramatic arts are also employed by ministering spirits as a powerful form of
"The doorway to reformation is never closed against any human soul, either here or hereafter." Closing
the doors to reformation would halt all progression and produce eternal stagnation. Reach helping hands
to those on planes of life beneath you, and those on planes of life above will extend helping hands to you.
Empty the hells, fill the heavens, and qualify yourself for life in still higher heavens. Become a
Ministering Spirit and speed the mammoth vehicle of ETERNAL PROGRESSION.
Ninety-nine Grades and the Golden Age
Every soul who enters a higher heavenly state must be properly conditioned or correctly qualified to live
and function in such a potent state. Fear of an angry God or eternal damnation in a lake of fire and
brimstone does not condition or qualify one to live and function in a higher state of life. Fear contains no
elements of regeneration or progression. Those who are good only because they are afraid to be bad are
still unregenerate or bad. Divine Love and Wisdom are the only truly regenerative and progressive forces
of the Universe and they are not tainted by any negative element such as fear.
Divine Love and Wisdom are objectified in our Planetary Heavens as Progressive Grades. Those Grades
were established in our Planetary Heavens by Archangels from the Emancipated Heavens. There are
ninety-nine of those grades and each grade is expressive of ascending degrees of Divine Love and
Wisdom, There are ninety-nine grades leading from the dark, undeveloped world of the human animal to
the masterful, golden age of the human Angel.
Every person from Pope to King, from General to Buck Private, from exalted Preacher to lowly Layman,
from Millionaire to Beggar, from business Mogul to the humble dirt Farmer, etc. . . . must emerge from
his dark corner of ignorance and enter the preparatory grades. Each person in all of existence must enter
the preparatory grades of Divine Love and Wisdom, and condition or qualify himself for life in the
heavens before he can enter those highly potent Heavens. Only those rise from the impotent plane of the
human animal to the potent, ripe, golden state of the human Angel who successfully mount or master the
ninety-nine grades in our Planetary Spirit World. Only spirit people who are properly conditioned or
qualified are ripe enough for the golden harvest.
Fruit and grain mature and ripen by degrees over a lengthy period of time, and the same rule of life is
associated with the regeneration or progress of a human being. The heavens would be transformed into
pigsties if they were filled with improperly conditioned and erroneously qualified human beings. The
selfish pig in human nature would revert to type and objectify a piggish environment.
The threat of the religious racketeer, "believe or be damned" contains no ripening spiritual element — it
contains no element of Divine Love and Wisdom. "Saved by the blood" is a doctrine that has never lifted
anyone from the green, unripe state of the human animal and reconditioned or requalified him for the
mellow, golden ripe state of the human Angel. The foolish theological method of salvation conditions
and qualifies no man with the proper type of body or the correct state of mind to endure in the high
voltage elements of the Celestial Kingdom. Those who are "washed in the blood" are neither conditioned
nor qualified by such blood baths for the extremely potent life in the higher spheres.
"Though the mills of God grind slowly,
yet they grind exceeding small; Though with patience He stands waiting,
with exactness grinds He all."
Almighty God has three Educational Mills in our Planetary Spirit World. The thirty-three grades of the
Apprentice comprise the first of God's Mills in our planet. The function of this Mill is to purify or
remove all impurities from the raw material. The thirty-three grades of the Craftsman comprise the
second of God's Mills in our Planet. The function of this Mill is to mold or bend to new and higher shape
the cleansed or purified raw materials. The thirty-three grades of the Master comprise the third of God's
Mills in our Planet. The function of this Mill is to assemble all of the different parts and fashion them to
a new and glowing pattern or model — the Human Angel. The three Mills are Educational Mills.
Raw material enters an automobile factory where it is cleansed and all burs removed in the receiving
department, machined and fashioned to form on the production lines in the fabrication department, and
fashioned to powerful glistening form on the line in the final assembly. Thus from raw material comes
the finished product — the powerful glistening automobile.
Mortals, or natural men, are the raw materials that are fed into the Thirty-three Grades of the Almighty's
Apprentice Mill. Each of the thirty-three grades is operational in purifying or cleansing the raw material.
This Mill grinds exceedingly fine, and it may be corresponded to the receiving department.
Purified, familiar spirits are the materials that are fed into the Thirty-three Grades of the Almighty's
Fellow-craft Mill. Each of those thirty-three grades is operational in bending, molding and milling the
purified one to new and higher form. This Mill, too, grinds exceedingly fine and it may be corresponded
to the production line in the fabrication department.
Saintly spirits are the materials that are fed into the Thirty-three Grades of the Almighty's Master Mill.
Each of those thirty-three grades is operational in forming the powerful, luminous Planetary Angel. This
Mill also grinds exceedingly fine and it may be corresponded to the final assembly in the automobile
Every spirit who enters the Spiritual World of the Planet at death must ultimately pass through three
states — the Initiatory State, the Exploratory State., and the Preparatory State. The Preparatory is the
greatest of these three States, and every spirit person who aspires to the Golden Age of Spirit in the
Celestial Kingdom must enter the Preparatory, Only souls who are properly conditioned and qualified are
ready for the Golden Age. Only Souls who have been prepared in the Educational Mills of the Almighty
are ready for the reaping. Only "golden or ripe Souls are ready for the Golden Age.
Forces of Resurrection, Arch Bodies, and Planetary Emancipation
Archangels of the Etherean Kingdom are ex-planetary angels; planetary angels of the Celestial Kingdom
are ex-saintly spirits; saintly spirits of the Spiritual Kingdom are ex-familiar spirits; familiar spirits of the
Arch-natural Kingdom are ex-mortals, and mortals are a product of the rudimentary or dense Natural
Kingdom. The way of progress is from mortal to familiar spirit, from familiar spirit to saintly spirit, from
saintly spirit to planetary angel, from planetary angel to archangel, and from archangel on to Infinity.
Archangels live in Arch-worlds. There are innumerable Arch-worlds, and each world is created by
Archangels. Archangels are angels of the highest order. Archangels form their own heavens by creating
archs and making breaks in the flow of the mighty etherean currents. Those breaks generate immense
eddies, gigantic whirlpools, or mighty vortices. Etherean worlds, or arch-heavens, are churned to
globular form from universal electronic substance; and, like the planet Earth, they are habitable both
without and within. Archangels live in Arch-worlds of their own creation. The term "archangel" is
derived from the type of world in which they live.
Arch-heavens are emancipated heavens and, as a matter of course, all beings who dwell in them must be
emancipated. Emancipated heavens are free or liberated heavens; they are completely independent of the
bound heavens that constitute the finer bodies of all dense material planets or corporeal worlds. All
Archangels are liberated angels; they are free of their mother planet; they live in emancipated worlds.
All who dwell in emancipated worlds are adapted to those worlds. The preparation for their adaptation is
imparted during their educational experiences in the Ninety-nine Grades of our Planetary Spiritual
World. The Law of Adaptation determines who is properly conditioned — or correctly qualified — to
live in such a liberated, free and independent state. Spirit people who are improperly conditioned and
inadequately qualified cannot live in such worlds anymore than fish can live in the atmospheric world
above the element of water.
Planetary Angels must become properly adapted before they are conditioned and qualified to live in the
emancipated worlds beyond the bound planetary heavens. What constitutes such adaptation? How may
one condition oneself and become qualified to live in the emancipated worlds beyond the bound
All who enter the emancipated worlds must have free and rational minds, purified characters and
archangelic bodies. How do angels acquire such states of mind, such qualities of character, and such
bodily organizations or forms?
Certainly, the Planetary Angel to acquire those qualifications must have help. The Planetary Angel
cannot lift himself by his own bootstraps into the Emancipated Heavens. He needs and must have
Almighty God, (Om-Na), directly and immediately through the Archangels, grants that assistance. The
Deific Seance is far more factual to the Planetary Angel than the phenomenal seance is to familiar spirits
A mighty sun-like vortex appears in the heavenly sky of the Celestial Kingdom. The sun-like vortex
condenses into a gigantic male-female form. The form is a visible representative or actual
manifestation of Almighty God. The Mighty Form speaks and the Deific Seance has begun.
The Almighty grants visible bodies and speech to us; and His ability to provide for Himself is not
less efficient or limited.
A vast crescent composed of thousands of millions of Planetary Angels forms a mighty magnet or
developing circle. The Almighty blankets the Angels of the crescent in a tremendous effluvium of
Esse, and the process for their ascension from the Bound to the Emancipated Heavens has begun.
Esse is a compound of Divine Love and Wisdom, and its rays of Deific Heat and Light do for the
Celestial Angels what the sun does for life in the natural kingdom. The Celestial Angels are
endowed with new and finer bodies and they are adapted by those bodies to live and function in new
and finer worlds. The Celestial Angels, thus equipped with superior bodies, are ready to mature to
the ripe golden state that is essential for ascension to superior worlds.
The Archangels are the Holy Agencies that serve as mediators between Almighty God and the
Celestial Angels. They are the rheostats, or step-down transformers,
through whom the Almighty pours His polarized and adaptable force. The Archangels are the agencies
that provide the elements that are essential to the production of a Deific Vortex. This vortex is the one
that makes possible the Deific Seance.
The thousands of millions of Planetary Angels of the glowing crescent or living magnet, wrapped in their
effluvial blanket of Deific Esse, are stimulated to tremendous growth and action in their upward climb
through the thirty-three grades of the Celestial Kingdom. Low grade celestials become high grade; they
mature rapidly and grow into mighty spiritual giants. Their spiritual talents or gifts unfold, and their love
and wisdom keep abreast of their unfoldment. The ripe, mature celestial is the greatest spiritual giant of
our planet. The wisest, most loving, most gifted beings are the greatest beings of our planet, and being the
greatest of all, they are best qualified to serve all. The high grade Celestial does not bury his talents, but exerts
them to serve all. He exerts his marvelous talents to serve all from the lowest of our man made human hells to
the very highest of our man made human heavens. The high grade Celestial Angel exerts his mighty planetary
wisdom and love; he exerts his mighty power to empty the inverted human hells and to fill the graded or
ascending human heavens.
Truly, the Planetary Celestial Angel is the greatest product of the Planet. His love and wisdom are the
greatest, his talents and gifts are the greatest, and his ability to serve is the greatest. He that is greatest of all is
qualified to serve all.
The mature Celestial Angel is the mellow, luscious fruit of the Planet — he is the golden, ripe fruit of the
Planet, and he is ready for the Harvest. The Archangels are the Harvesters.
The Archangels are advised by the Almighty when the harvest of Planetary Angels is ready for the reaping,
and they come to our Planet in a gigantic ship. The ship is a space vehicle and it may be larger than the Planet
which is the object of visitation. The gigantic Etherean Ship is commissioned with a choir of more than a
million golden voiced singers, and an orchestra of an equal number of highly gifted musicians. With banners
flying, musicians playing, and the choir singing, the huge colorful ship approaches the Celestial Kingdom of
our Planet in an iridescent aureole of blazing light. Evidently light, color, song, music and flowing banners,
etc., are important appendages to a successful mission — the mission of transporting thousands of millions of
angels from the lower octaves of the Celestial Kingdom to the higher scales of the Etherean Kingdom. The
ascension in pitch carries the Ship and its Passengers into invisibility above and beyond the sight range of the
The Celestial Angel — the Word of God — after its marriage to Deity, is a Restored Word. The Recovered
Word — the Planetary or Celestial Angel — is now a Restored Word or Archangel, and it is correctly
conditioned and properly qualified to enter the huge space ship and ascend to the mighty cosmic or
Emancipated Heavens. Several accounts of these grand events are clearly narrated in the Oahspe Bible.
A cadre, skeleton, or framework, of Celestial Angels remains behind to carry on the business of the Celestial
Kingdom. This cadre of Celestial Angels functions executively and initiates the ascending spirits from lower
kingdoms into the secrets or mysteries of the thirty-three ascending grades of the final Celestial Kingdom.
Like bees, the great mass of Celestial Angels swarm, with their leaders, to higher Etherean Worlds, leaving
the old planetary or heavenly hive in the Celestial Kingdom to swarms of spirit people and their leaders from
lower kingdoms of life.
The Angels of the Celestial Kingdom are the ripe HARVEST of the Planet, and the Archangels from Eman-
cipated Heavens are the REAPERS. The ripe cargo is loaded, the choir sings, the musicians play, the banners
float as the huge Ship, turning slowly upon its axis, rises to the Etherean Kingdom and disappears toward
Infinity in the endless blue yonder.
Heaven is from the Human Race
"The kingdom of God cometh not with observation. "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, Lo there! for,
behold, the kingdom of God is within you.'
Luke 17:20, 21.
The bigoted, dogmatic Pharisees, who were strongly bound by tradition, demanded the above
information. Jesus told them the truth, and, as later events proved, it wasn't the information desired.
The Pharisees wished to stand upon a mountain top, or in some other advantageous location, and witness
the coming of the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God, to them, was a New Jerusalem, a glorified
reproduction of the old Jerusalem and, when it descended, they would be able to observe through
physical sight the spectacular or extravagantly elaborate show. The Pharisees regarded the kingdom of
God as an exterior manifestation, and they expected to witness the elaborate show upon its descent.
However, the kingdom of God cometh not with observation.
Spiritually ignorant and undeveloped men, lacking knowledge of the interior kingdom of God, believed
only in an exterior heaven. They were feudalistic minded and believed that heaven was a gilded walled
city. Their heaven was a sort of glorified jeweler's shop with pearly
gates, jasper walls, streets of gold, etc., and there were insuperable barriers between it and the human race.
Those barriers were psychological edicts and they were enforced by brutal, sadistic spirit beings.
The false deific architect who patterned such a heaven must have had a gold-rush complex. Such a heaven
would be better adapted to the spiritual state of non-progressive, worldly people, or materialistic worshippers
of the golden calf, than to progressive, growing, spiritually aspirational souls.
The glorified metallic heaven is a paradisiacal concept which originated in the warped mind of a false
Christ by the name of Looeamong. Looeamong was a jealous wrathful god. A jealous, wrathful god is a
false god. Jealousy and wrath are psychological states which are uncomplimentary even to a low grade
mortal being. The edict issued or the price exacted for entrance into a metallic heaven is silly and
ridiculous to the extreme; it is a demand for total, unthinking, blind subscription to the vicious, sadistic
proclamation or edict of a tyrannical, cruel, inhuman spirit being.
' 'Believe or be damned'' is the entrance fee to the metallic heaven — the heaven of the false Christ.
Believe and find eternal salvation behind the feudal walls of a cold metallic city. Disbelieve in the insane
proclamation or edict of this mad god and you will be eternally damned — doomed to burn forever in the
unquenchable flames of a fire and brimstone hell.
What a horrible sentence to impose upon mankind! Either eternal salvation behind the feudal walls of a
cold metallic city, or eternal damnation to a hell of fire and brimstone. What a diabolical disposition the
false Christ must have possessed to impose such an insane sentence upon mankind. Such a being, in our
opinion, was psychotic, and in dire need of psychiatric treatment; he exhibited strong paranoid
tendencies, or evidences of chronic mental disorder marked by delusions of persecution and grandeur.
Certainly, the spirit impersonating Christ was afflicted with mental instability or illness.
"You must stand up for Jesus and publicly confess belief in the saving power of the Cross. You must
publicly affirm belief in salvation by crucifixion or murder." Only a mentally unbalanced god would demand
total subscription to such an insane belief. Those who subscribe to such a belief are selfishly fearful, and
hope to secure personal favors through human sacrifice or murder. The barbarians murdered their finest sons
and daughters, slew them on a sacrificial stone or altar, to appease the wrath of their false gods. Salvation
through human sacrifice originated with spiritually ignorant, undeveloped barbarians. Are you a barbarian
worshipping a barbarous god? A blood bath, or being "washed in the blood," is belief in salvation through
human sacrifice, or murder. Would you bow down in abject cowardice to such an insane belief in order to
selfishly preserve the skin of your own soul? ...... .
Only a spiritually ignorant, undeveloped person would accept the salvation which comes through human
sacrifice, or murder. The cross is no more an emblem of salvation than are the guillotine or gallows. The
cross, the guillotine and the gallows are implements of capital punishment. The cross was the implement of
the Roman State, the guillotine of the French State, and the gallows of England and the United States.
Spiritually wise, highly developed people would never follow an implement of capital punishment anywhere;
they would never employ an emblem of violent death as a key to open the gates of heaven. Spiritually wise,
highly developed people would have no desire to spend eternity behind the jasper walls of a metallic city;
they would have no desire to go to a heaven where the mineral kingdom is exalted above all other
kingdoms. A heaven of precious metals and stones might well appeal to an old King Midas of the golden
touch, to a selfish "pound of flesh” Shylock, or to a miserly old Scrooge, but it would never appeal to wise,
highly developed, fearless, unselfish people. Wise, unselfish, highly developed people would appreciate the
freedom of living in the wide open spaces rather than being cooped up or
imprisoned forever in a walled, metallic city. Such an idea of heaven was born of the selfish, perverted mind
of a false Christ or pseudo god.
What sort of hierarchical institutions represent the false Christ or pseudo god here upon the earth plane? They
are institutions of mental slavery and spiritual bondage. The keynote of those institutions has been and still is
in some quarters, "believe or be damned."
Robert Ingersoll said, "I'll be damned if I do believe." Ingersoll was correct. Such a belief is supposed to
qualify one for eternal life in a walled heaven, and unbelief consign one to everlasting torment in a burning
hell. Which do you prefer; to roast forever in hell, or vegetate forever canned up in a metallic heaven?
According to the institutions of the false Christ, you have but a single choice, and this choice must be made
while you are living here in this mundane world. The institution is most generous with time when it says, "one
minute after death will be too late for a confession of belief, and salvation." One minute in the other world can
subject you to eternal damnation.
The institution was so cruelly dogmatic and so sadistically intolerant in past years that it gave one no choice.
Any man who dared exercise his prerogative of free thought and speech was subject to indescribable torture,
and finally put to a most horrible death as a heretic. We have neither the time, space, nor inclination to
catalogue the awful crimes of the institution against mankind. It is a matter of history.
In the past, the institution enslaved people by force; they were compelled to believe. People are still
compelled to believe, but the mode of compulsion has changed; it is one of fear through evangelism, pious
threat or psychological pressure. "Believe or be damned" is still a strong underlying notion or theological
Men are still slaves of the sadistic institution, but they are no longer compelled through fear of physical
torture and death to their enslavement. Through psychological enslavement, men are still compelled to
irrational acts; they are still impelled to kiss the big toe on the bare foot of a so-called sacred statue.
The numbers are so great who perform this senseless rite that they actually wear away the toe through the
friction of their lips. Men, through psychological pressure, still climb innumerable steps up a mountain
side to a so-called sacred temple and count beads every step of the way. Men still kiss the ring on the
finger of the false Christ's emissary, and in a dark (ignorant) corner of the spirit world, crawl unbelievable
distances on their bellies in order to bask in the fatuous light of the false Christ's deceptive countenance.
All of this, and much more, is the price exacted by the false Christ for so-called salvation to his dead-end,
psuedo heaven — a heaven that is apart from the human race, a heaven that IS "Lo here! and, Lo there! A
heaven that cometh with observation."
What was the philosophy of the TRUE Christ, and what was HIS method of dealing with
mankind? Was he sadistic, dogmatic, intolerant, and unforgiving? Jesus forgave everybody for
everything. He rebuked the accusers of the woman taken in adultery and defended her successfully when
he said, "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her." Needless to say, the accusers
shamefully departed, leaving her alone with him. Then Jesus said unto her, "Woman, where are those thine
accusers? Hath no man condemned thee?" She said, "No man, Lord." And Jesus said unto her, "Neither do I
condemn thee; go, and sin no more." John 8:5, 11. Do you think the above character is the same
man who said, "Believe or be damned?" Do you think the above character is the same man who created
a hell of fire and brimstone in which to burn the unbeliever forever and forever?
Do you think the Christ who said, "Ye judge after the flesh: I judge no man," John 8:15, is the same man who
said, "Believe or be damned?" Do you think the man who said, "I judge no man" is the same character who
intends to torture the unbeliever forever in a burning hell? Jesus, while hanging upon the cross, asked the
Father to forgive his murderers, for did he not say, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." Do
you think the man who asked forgiveness for his murderers is the same being who said, "Believe or be
damned?" Do you believe he is the same character who decreed that the unbeliever should be tortured forever
and forever in a hell of fire and brimstone?
Jesus did not demand slavish obedience of mankind; he did not postulate the doctrine of salvation through
murder or the cross; he did not claim purification for those who were washed in his blood; he did not endorse
vicarious atonement, for did he not indicate that people were responsible for their own sins when he
counselled, "Go and sin no more?"
Jesus did not proclaim eternal forgiveness for those who believe in salvation by blood or through human
sacrifice, neither did he sentence mankind to eternal damnation in a lake of fire and brimstone for unbelief.
"Believe or be damned" was not his philosophy of life; it was the dreadful philosophy of a false, deceitful and
Jesus did not believe in a kingdom of God which came through observation; he did not believe in a kingdom
of God which was lo here or lo there, for he knew that the kingdom of God was not an exterior place but an
inside state or condition. Jesus knew that the kingdom of God was within all men; he knew that heaven was
from the human race.
The kingdom of God is a Deific Germ within all men; it is a spiritual potential within the whole human race.
Men who develop or unfold their spiritual potential, and objectify it, will discover that they have objectified a
heaven. Heaven becomes their environment, and the external estate is a perfect counterpart of their inner
spiritual state. Thus, we find the American Indian anticipating his happy hunting ground, and the Psalmist
expecting to lie down in green pastures, beside the still waters, etc. Heaven is, indeed, from the human race.
The inner spiritual state of man is objectified and becomes his spiritual environment, or his outer spiritual
estate. Recently, we beheld a spirit in a fog. The exterior condition or estate was a perfect correspondence of
his inner mental state. Men who are spiritually ignorant and undeveloped have no knowledge of the
inner kingdom of God and, as a result, they objectify a state of life, which is far below the heavenly. The
world of warfare, murder, rape, robbery, crime of all kinds, and deep-dyed selfishness etc., is hell, and it is
objectified by ignorant, undeveloped mortals and spirits of both the here and the hereafter. Undeveloped,
or unripe, mortals and spirit people produce or objectify an unripe or infernal state of life. Truly, both heaven
and hell are from the human race, and the external ESTATE is always representative of the interior spiritual
STATE. Familiar spirits of the Arch-natural Kingdom call forth enough talent from the inner spiritual
kingdom of God to objectify a natural heaven; saintly spirits of the Spiritual Kingdom call forth enough talent
from the kingdom of God within to objectify a spiritual heaven; and angels of the Celestial kingdom call
forth enough talent from the kingdom of God within to objectify a celestial heaven, etc. Heaven is an active,
harmonious outer result of the release of God's Wisdom and Power from within. Activate the kingdom within,
release God's Power of Divine Love and Wisdom, and you will progress eternally from heaven to heaven.
Truly, heaven IS from the Human Race.
The late Thomas Grimshaw, a dedicated medium and able instrument of the ministering spirits of God,
speaking under the powerful inspiration of his illuminated "ghost men," said: "There is a reservoir of
Infinite Powers and Possibilities in every human being."
Those Infinite Powers and Possibilities must be unfolded to ripeness, and exercised in completely
humble and unselfish service to all living beings, if one is ever to arrive at the exalted state of Infinity, "If
any man desire to be first, the same shall be last (least and most humble) of all, and servant of all." Mark
What is Infinity? Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines Infinity as being, "That region of a line, plane, or
space, infinitely distant from the finite region regarded. The quality of being Infinite."
No man can "bum his way" from the lowly region of space to the infinitely distant plane of Infinity; one
cannot "thumb a ride'
from the limited plane of the finite to the unlimited plane of the Infinite. One
cannot go, one must grow, from the finite to Infinity, even as infants cannot go but must grow from
immaturity to manhood.
The doctrine of a savior is false; it is ridiculous to the extreme. A savior, so-called, may grow from the
Earth to Infinity through the development and exercise of his own inner spiritual powers, but no man can
go from Earth to Infinity upon the power and achievement of another: each must do his own growing if
he is to go. There is no effortless salvation elevator in all of existence which will condition, qualify and
adapt one to live in the extremely high voltage life of Infinity. The kingdom of God is within you, and
you must call forth the infinite powers and possibilities of that kingdom, and exercise them in humble
and unselfish service to all living beings, if you are ever to complete the journey from the finite to
Infinity. The elevator to heaven is not running, take the stairs — the grades.
The way from the finite to Infinity is a way of growth, development, unfoldment and service. There is no
savior in all of existence who can do the growing and serving for you. Each must become a great servant.
"He that is greatest among you shall be the servant of all."
"There is a reservoir of Infinite Powers and Possibilities within every human being," said the ministering
spirits or "ghost men" associated with Thomas Grimshaw. "Every human being" includes the retarded
child, the idiot, and the degenerate human being, etc. The block which prevents growth is in the warped,
deformed, and injured genes. Those blocks are removed after death, the mind and the spirit assume
normalcy of expression, and the afflicted ones begin their upward climb through the preparatory grades
under the tutelage of the mighty heavenly educators. The wonderful physicians and nurses of the spiritual
world assist the spiritually retarded in overcoming their afflictions.
We are acquainted with a child in spirit who was killed by her mother on the day of her birth; it was a
murder-suicide act, and the mother, besides drowning her own child, drowned herself. The mother was of
royalty and lacked strength of character to meet the judgment of society for giving birth to a child out of
The murder-suicide resulted in the mother landing in spiritual darkness, and the child in the care of the
wonderful maternal educators of the grades. The child, without benefit of sacrificial blood and repeated
reincarnations, maturing under the care of her wonderful maternal tutors, crew and developed to the point
where she expressed more knowledge, wisdom and love at the age of eight years than most adults
express at total maturity here upon the earth plane.
The writer, with the marvelous therapeutic help of the angels, rescued the mother from darkness, and
established her on the wonderful pathway of spiritual progress where she is now working out her own
salvation; she is unfolding the powers and possibilities of the kingdom of God within her and expressing
them in unselfish service.
Children grow in spirit and the rapidity and extent of their growth seems to be determined by the amount
of love and wisdom expressed. The spirit child referred to in the above paragraph, at the age of eight had
grown to the height where her head was even with the shoulder of the writer, and the writer is six feet
four inches tall. Yes, indeed, impotent infants grow and progress in spirit.
Spirits in darkness generate and exude unpleasant odors. The royal lady who killed herself and murdered
her child was no exception, for she radiated a vile odor that was akin to decaying flowers in a vase of
Needless to say, the lady has progressed in spirit to the point where all vile odors have disappeared and
she now gives forth a fragrant perfume which is similar to living flowers. Yes, even murderers and
suicides, when they are kindly and properly assisted, progress in spirit. "The doorway to reformation is
never closed against any human soul, here or hereafter."
Retardation, idiocy, degeneration, etc., last only for a limited period of time. All spirit people, regardless
of their mental, moral and spiritual conditions, are sooner or later rescued from darkness. No spirit is so
vicious, evil and vile as to be beyond the all efficient omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence of
Almighty God. All will eventually be rescued! All will eventually find themselves traveling along the
way of human progress from the finite plane to Infinity. The ministering spirits are all instrumental to the
expression of Deific Love and Wisdom they all express powers and possibilities from the kingdom of
God within, and they are all of wonderful assistance to spirits in darkness. "Are they not all ministering
spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?" Hebrew 1:14.
The human hells will all be emptied, all of the spirits in darkness will be rescued, and ere you travel far
on the path toward Infinity you, too, will participate in the rescue service that empties the man made
hells and fills the man made heavens. Heaven and Hell are, indeed, from the human race. Human beings
create heaven and hell for themselves.
Each person, before he can enter the pathway of progression, must slay a man, and the man whom he
must slay is the lower self of him who enters. Lucifer, Satan and the Devil are only representative words
indicative of the degree of evil into which men may fall. Lucifer spirits are normally selfish and evil;
Satan spirits are very selfish and evil; and Devil spirits are the most selfish and evil of all; they wish
good to no man. Lucifer, Satan and Devilish spirits are of the lower self and they cannot travel along the
pathway of spiritual progress. The Lucifer, Satan and Devilish degrees of our nature are acting under a
sentence of death; they are doomed to die and we will kill or transmute them into good. Thank God!
Have you fallen into low degrees or deep pits of evil? Are you down under a weight of sin and vileness?
If you have fallen and are down, you can rise again, get up again, a thousand times or more if necessary.
You will gather strength with the getting up or rising until the time of the final fall. Then, you will,
indeed, be strong and free.
We are under the supervision of the ministering spirits of God; they are with us during the dark depths of our
many falls, and they will assist us to attain to complete purification, and also help to establish us on the
Pathway of Eternal Progression. "Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall
be heirs of salvation?"
The angels, the ministering spirits of God, and the "ghost men" of Thomas Grimshaw all assure us,
despite the sadistic damnation threats of ignorant and heartless theologians, that "the doorway to
reformation is never closed against any human soul, here or hereafter."
Eternal Progression is not just an empty phrase or idle expression. Eternal Progression is a perfectly
planned or designed way leading from the finite to the Infinite; it is a pathway of orderly evolution and
growth; and no so-called savior can do the growing and evolving for you. The Pathway of Eternal
Progression was designed, without a single exception, to meet the spiritual travel needs of all men.
Mortals travel the Pathway of Eternal Progression and become familiar spirits; familiar spirits travel it
and become saintly spirits; saintly spirits travel it and become planetary angels; planetary angels travel it
and become archangels; archangels travel it and become the gods of Infinity. "Is it not written in your
law, I said, Ye are gods?" John 10:34-
All men, from mortals of the rudimentary seed plane of earth to the gods in the Deific Planes of Infinity,
are of the human race. The archangels are of the human race; they are the most wonderful of all the
angels, and they are only slightly below the level of the gods. The archangels progress through the many
grades of the Etheric Kingdom until they arrive at the level of the gods.
The gods are of the human race. Any talent or power expressed by them is a prophecy of your own
potential. The kingdom of God is within you and there is a potential god within his kingdom.
What are the names of the Deific Kingdoms, and what are their functions?
The first kingdom to which the archangels progress in Infinity is the Orion Kingdom. The Orion
Kingdom is the first and lowest kingdom of Infinity, and within it are mirrored the wonderful glories of
our own exalted future. The gods of the Orion Kingdom are rulers over the wonderful arch-worlds of
The Nirvanian Kingdom is the next highest kingdom of the gods in Infinity, and their function is to prepare,
educate, train and appoint the Orion gods to their many offices. The wonders of your own future are reflected
in the functions of the Nirvanian gods.
Above the Nirvanian Kingdom is the Oe'tanian Kingdom. The Oe'tanian gods have attained to the wisdom
and power to make worlds, and to destroy or atomize dead planets. Behold a prophecy of your own future in
the wondrous achievements of the Oe'tanian gods.
The Eonian Kingdom is the last kingdom that we shall discuss in this book, but there are an endless number
of kingdoms ahead. The Eonian gods are travelers and surveyors. They travel and survey the magnitudes. The
Eons travel in huge, fully equipped space ships, and a journey of a million years is to them what the journey
of a year would be to us. The Eonians, during their tremendous journeys, discover the available places for the
formation of new worlds and the time for the dissipation of dead worlds. All of the mass of information which
is accumulated by the Eonian gods is given to the Oe'tan-ians who proceed to their mighty task of planetary
formation and elimination.
All of the mighty beings in the Kingdoms of Infinity operate together in love, wisdom and harmony; and our
own far-flung future is revealed in their magnificent achievements. We are being pointed in that magnificent
May we state here that many of the most wonderful gods of Infinity did a stretch in the human hells of their
own corporeal planet prior to finding their way into the preparatory grades of their own planetary heavens.
The talent and power that is exhibited by the gods in the kingdoms of Infinity is a magnificent prophecy of
what exists as a potential in the Kingdom of God within you. Unfold the talent, genius and power of the King-
dom of God within you, dedicate it to mankind, and progress eternally.
There are saintly spirits in the heavens of our own planet who have unfolded magnificent degrees of talent
from the Kingdom of God within themselves. Those saintly spirits can, with a single tremendous sweep of
their minds, enumerate the total number of beings on our planet, and determine the precise state and grade of
each. Those earthly beings, both mortal and spiritual, number in the billions. Truly, there is a reservoir of
Infinite Powers and Possibilities in every human being. Every human being includes all; and the all includes
The duration of the journey from Earth to Infinity is determined by the number of powers and possibilities,
which you unfold from the Kingdom of God within yourself, and the use you make of them.
There are kingdoms without number beyond the Orion, Nirvanian, Oe'tanian and Eonian Kingdoms, and those
ahead are still more surpassing in magnificence! Who then, can approach the unapproachable, All Highest,
the Deific He-She who fashioned the plan of all creation? Who is there that is not swallowed up with devotion
and awe of Om-Na who is Ever Present, that extendeth beyond all limits, our Infinite Father-Mother, Jehovih!
Jehovih is Infinite Feminine Love and Infinite Masculine Wisdom. Jehovih is the Deific Twain-one —
Infinite Love and Infinite Intelligence.
We progress from glory to glory as we move upward from kingdom to kingdom. Open the Kingdom of God
within you, develop its powers and possibilities, and progress into those glorious upward kingdoms. The Seed
of Divinity is within you, cultivate it, and it will carry you through all of the progressive gradations of life to
Infinity. Infinite Love and Wisdom is the Immanent Divinity that enables the Pilgrim Spirit to progress from
EARTH to INFINITY. Infinity is the exalted habitat of Divinity.
"Heaven is not reached at a single bound; But we build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth
to the vaulted skies, And we mount to its summit round by round."
Josiah Gilbert Holland
Look and seek, ask and receive, knock and know that the Kingdom of God is within you. Tap the
reservoir of Infinite Powers and Possibilities that are within you and draw them forth to fullness of
expression. We progress from degeneration to regeneration. Regeneration is the drawing forth of those
Powers and Possibilities from the limitless reservoir that is within us. Continuous regeneration is Eternal
Smash the hard shells of your darkness and limitation. Cease to function as a spiritual crustacean, and
become a bird of paradise. Spread the wings of your mind and mentally soar into realms of continuous
freedom and everlasting light. Break the hypnotic spells that have been cast upon you by the spiritually
blind apostles of darkness. Discard forever the false creeds and dogmas of vicarious atonement and
eternal damnation! Know! Know! Know! that the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent Deity of this
limitless universe would never close the doorway to reformation against any human soul, here or
The above concludes a message from the Forces of Light. The above is a brief summation of the
Glorious Truths of ETERNAL PROGRESSION.
