Received by H.
My dear brother H___,
I am glad that this time you have decided to receive my message
through dictation. It is good practice to change the mode of reception
whenever this is possible, as you will gain so much more confidence
and accuracy. Currently it is very easy for us to enter into contact,
provided that you find time and a quiet place.
I want to continue writing about the spheres of the spirit world,
and with today's message we arrive at the sixth sphere. It will
be a difficult chapter to explain, because even for us, the nature
of the sixth sphere still presents a series of questions which we
cannot answer. I already see that you have guessed what I am referring
to. But we will speak of that later. Firstly I intend to explain
the condition of the inhabitants of the sixth sphere.
As you already know, when spirits of the fifth sphere are able
to purify their souls completely of sin, they have the opportunity
to advance and to enter the sixth sphere. The great majority do
so, only some of the Divine Love spirits prefer to stay in the fifth,
because they feel that this advance or progress would only be an
apparent progress. Many of these spirits however venture ahead,
more out of curiosity in order to learn of the paradise that their
"natural" mates so much yearn for, but they return disillusioned
after a short time.
The sixth sphere is a purely intellectual area, and when I say
intellectual, I refer to the fact that in spite of the great spirituality
of the place, the zeal of its inhabitants goes much more for increasing
their knowledge, while they live a life in absolute harmony with
God's laws of spirituality. It is a place where science has reached
its most spectacular results compared to all the spiritual spheres,
and where the intelligence of its inhabitants is supreme, and where
absolute fraternity exists, such as people dream of on earth.
Religion plays an important role, but the mere fact that there
are many diverse religions in this zone, demonstrates that its inhabitants
are not yet in possession of absolute truth. You have already read
messages where this situation is described, indicating that spirits
coming from diverse cultures live in separate communities, happy
with each other, but that there is very little contact with spirits
outside their respective societies. Inside these communities there
are subgroups, based on special interests. It is a paradise of immense
happiness, where some kind of semi-truth reigns, and where the only
possible progress is the accumulation of intellectual knowledge.
In the universe of God there is so much we may know, so that we
will never reach absolute knowledge throughout all eternity. But
as for the soul, in this case a natural and totally purified soul,
progress no longer exists beyond what has already been achieved.
And herein lies the great problem. We don't know what will happen
with these spirits. They cannot remain without development through
all eternity. You already understand this problem. This contradicts
the Law of Change. And they also fully realize that.
Well, in order to continue, if I tell you about the great inventions
and scientific discoveries, I don't want to suggest that life in
the sixth sphere consists only of such studies, no, there are great
social events, amusements, all of which provides them with great
happiness, their class of happiness. Paradise, yes, the sixth sphere
is the paradise which the Hebrews dreamt of and continue dreaming
of, and it is the paradise that Christian churches teach of, in
general, and also spiritualists.
The spirits of the sixth sphere no longer keep up much contact
with mortals. Messages from them are not very common. You know that
Mr. Padgett received some, but the reason was the curiosity these
spirits felt when they saw Mr. Padgett surrounded by another class
of spirits, namely of Celestials. Those of the sixth sphere, however,
do continue helping lower spirits along their way, and many are
dedicated to the work of teachers and professors in the lower spheres.
Good, I cannot tell you much more. I would love to describe to
you the atmosphere that reigns there but it is impossible.
Yes, it happens, of course, that spirits of the sixth sphere decide
to follow the Celestial pathway, mainly when they already possess
some of Divine Love, which has lain inactive in their souls throughout
all their development, and suddenly awakes and arouses longings
in them for something more when they no longer feel filled with
this paralyzing satisfaction. This happens at times when we talk
to them and tell them of our world. But, as I told you, in most
cases we only meet deaf ears. It is also the true that when they
want to change their destination, they have to return to a lower
sphere where they may find better conditions for the development
of their souls in Divine Love. This can be the third sphere, sometimes
it is even the fifth, it depends on the amount of Love they already
With that I finish my discussion of the spiritual spheres. Next
time we will speak of the seventh sphere, which is not yet situated
in the Celestial Heavens, but which you may consider as the antechamber.
My dear brother, I like the portrait you drew of Andrew. Yes, that
was his appearance. He was a rather short man, somewhat fat, well,
not so much fat as stout, and by that I mean he had a very muscular
body and tremendous physical strength. His hands were huge, callous
and firm, weather-beaten from long years of hard work as a fisherman.
He didn't speak much, and he had a rather introverted character,
unlike his brother Peter. But he had a heart of gold, which he still
has now, even more precious.
Andrew works a lot with mortals. And I owe him a lot, yes, in fact
I owe him everything. Throughout all the time of my progress towards
the Celestial Heavens, he accompanied me and helped tirelessly.
We still visit each other frequently, although we don't live in
the same place.
It is time to say goodbye. It is thundering, so you'd better disconnect
your computer. I am happy that your gallery
of portraits is taking form already. Very soon I will project
another image of one of my old companions into your mind, and you
will be able to try your talent as an artist once again.
May God bless you always,
Your brother in Christ,
