I am here, your Helen. I am ready to write as I promised you today,
and you must not think that I will not tell you of what is so dear
to me, and should be to you. It has been a long time since I wrote
you very much in detail about myself, and you do not know what has
taken place in my soul progression for some time past.
Well, I have been praying and trying to get more Love of the Father
in my soul and have succeeded to such an extent that I am now in
the third Celestial Sphere, where are your grandmother and mother
also; and my dear, if I could only tell you of the joys and grandeur
of this sphere, I should be most happy. But I have not the words
at my command to give you any satisfactory idea of what the appearance
and conditions of this sphere are.
I have described to you my home in the second
Celestial Sphere, though very inadequately, but that home cannot
compare with what I have now, and I cannot better describe it than
to say it is beyond all possible conception of what you can possibly
have of beauty and grandeur and love. I am only in the lower planes
of this sphere, but these are so filled with the Father's Love that
it almost seems impossible that there can be any spheres where there
is more of this Love, but, of course, as Jesus and all the apostles
and some others who write you, have their homes in these higher
(Celestial) Spheres and nearer to the fountainhead of love, consequently
there must be more Love where they are.
I am so happy that I can scarcely tell you of what this happiness
means, but at any rate, I must say that there is never the slightest
thing to interfere with my happiness or to make me think that I
am not an accepted child of the Father, partaking of His Love to
an extent that makes me immortal and never again subject to death.
This happiness is not such as satisfies only for a while, but is
one continual source of living, free from all that might enter into
the feelings or lives of spirits that know not that they are one
with the Father and a part of Him in Love and beauty. I am only
wanting one thing now to make my life complete, and that is to have
you with me; but from this you must not think that I am not perfectly
happy and contented, for I am, but as you have been told I am only
one half of the complete one, the other half must come and join
the half that I am before the perfect one can become completed.
So my dear Ned, you must try now harder than ever to get this Great
Love in your soul in more abundance, and you may if you will only
pray and have faith, for the Master says that you can, and he knows.
Yes, I have my individual home here, just as I had in the lower
spheres, and it is just as real, and more so, as any home which
you have on earth. My garments are the same in appearance, as to
form, but oh, so much more beautiful and shining white, and my countenance
too is more beautiful and full of expressions of love. So you see,
I have a greater love for my Father and a greater love for you;
for as my love for the Father increases my love for you also increases,
and I know that when you come over this love will be so great, that
you will wonder that such love could exist.
I do not think that I had better write more tonight as I do not
feel like telling you of other things, and I only want to enjoy
this Great Love free from communicating about other matters, though
at another time I shall be pleased to do so.
So sweetheart, think of me as I am now, filled with this Great,
new Love that is possessing my whole being, and now dear you are
the object of this love, outside of that which is the Father's.
I will not write more, but will say that I am yours now and for
all eternity, and am waiting, oh, so longingly, for the time to
come when you can be with me. I will stop writing.
Your own true and loving,
