The Whole Purpose
We have nothing to offer but the truth, and it is the truth that will set men free. Why
this should incur enmity, displeasure, hostility, opposition and misrepresentation, I do
not know. Maybe they are mistaken. Their judgment has become warped and they
are incapable of realizing that there can be truth outside themselves. Sometimes I
think they must think that it is very wrong of the Great Spirit to reveal His wisdom
outside their organization. But as it is said, The ways of God are not the ways of
man. Perhaps it is good it is not so.
In the case of the churches you have a great difficulty. You have men who earnestly
believe that theirs is the truth and they are defending what is to them something very
dear. They do not realize that their system has been built on something which
originally was divine in origin but has been overlaid through the centuries by what
was devised from the mind of man. They cannot isolate the original from the
wrapping. They worship the wrapping as being divine. If they have become fossilized
mentally and spiritually, nothing can reach them. The Great Spirit has ordered it so
that through some mental or spiritual upheaval you are given the opportunity of
finding truth, but it does not always happen. If through trouble, sorrow, sickness or
sadness their souls are touched, then the experience has been worth while.
The whole purpose of the return from our world to yours is to draw attention to
spiritual realities. It is as simple as that. We could easily be unconcerned with your
world and its activities. There is no compulsion to associate ourselves with you, and
you have no means of forcing our attention. Our efforts are voluntary because we
love you, with the whole of humanity, and desire to help you. It could even be argued
that perhaps our love, like a good many forms of love, is a little selfish because we
have seen so many come to our world unfitted human wreckages, not ready and
poorly equipped. It becomes so much easier if they learned the lessons in the place
where they were intended to learn them, the schoolhouse of earth.
The whole purpose is to draw attention to spiritual realities, to show that very being
starts the physical course with a spiritual heritage conferred by the act of birth. The
life force is the divine spark, spiritual in nature, which is intended to grow equally with
the physical body. The majority of mankind concerns itself only with physical growth.
Some of it is concerned with mental growth, and a few concerned with spiritual
growth. The only enduring reality is spirit. If we succeed by a variety of means in
making man aware of his spiritual nature which is his reality, it transforms the whole
of his life. He sees its purpose, is conscious of his origin, becomes aware of his
destiny and should live his life in the implications of the knowledge which he has
received. That very simply is the plan behind all our activities.
When it is applied to daily life, then you will drive away all fear, worry, discord, hatred,
disease, selfishness and pride, and there will truly be peace based upon a genuine
spiritual brotherhood. Increasing awareness of these eternal truths makes your souls
and your spiritual bodies receptive to the powers from our world. That is the magnetic
link between earth and ourselves.
In order to reach your world, we must have the means of doing it. We must have the

channels through which this power can flow. Part of your psychic and spiritual
unfoldment consists in becoming more and more receptive to our influences. As your
soul natures blend with your spirit co-operators, so they can transmit through you that
power which can help in times of crisis, difficulty and danger. This power is hard to
define because it is impalpable and intangible from the material standpoint, but it is
none the less real. It is part of the force of life, it is part of the Great spirit, it is in
essence the same as the power which gives consciousness and being to every facet
of activity in the universe. It is the same power that enables the seed to grow and to
blossom, and another seed to fruit, the tree to grow and a soul to unfold itself.
It has an infinite number of possible manifestations. It can revive, resuscitate,
reinvigorate, recharge and revitalize. It can inspire, it can heal, and when the
conditions are suitable, it can produce physical results in your world. When you retire
into your own sanctuary for the purpose of giving healing to others, as a corollary you
are also unfolding your own channel for receiving spirit power. The two go together.
Often when people sit in circles for development and nothing apparently is
happening, a great work is being done in strengthening and unifying the links
between matter and spirit, for the transmission of spirit power is a highly intricate and
delicate process.
If people were highly developed and their lives were more spiritual than material,
instead of, as at present, more material and less spiritual, then the task would be
easier because the common nexus between us is spirit. Alas, with the vast majority
of individuals, the spirit is so deeply embedded, so embryonic, so latent, that it is with
the utmost difficulty that it can be reached at all. Some are so engrossed in matter
that the spirit within them is but a tiny flicker, so small that it produces practically no
light. But it is there. When they are ready, after they have been in the crucible of
suffering, then they too can be awakened, then they too can be aware, then they too
can understand spiritual realities, themselves and the Great Spirit, the link between
them and everyone else and all creatures, and realize the fundamental bond of unity
that is part of the natural law.
When you open the door of your soul to one form of knowledge, you must not close
it, but must allow the processes of unfoldment to continue. You will not attain
perfection in your world, but you can strive to improve your mental and your spiritual
