The Buddha is very happy.

I am here, the Buddha.
I know that you’ve been curious about me. I have been blissfully happy. I, of course, was not a god, but a mortal. I lived my life as you do - true to myself. I found great comfort and solace in the doctrines I discovered.
I have observed that so many people who have followed my doctrines have found this bliss and happiness as well.
You are curious about my thoughts about God. Well, I knew life would continue after death. I have not had, as you do, a burning desire and need to relate to a Supreme Being. Thus, my life here has followed a different path from someone like yourself. I have reasoned that if I can find happiness and peace without this Supreme Being, what use is it to me? I know this sounds almost blasphemous to you, and yet there are so many spirits who feel this way.
At any rate, there is a mighty army of benevolent spirits who are working through the earth plane to bring peace and love to the Earth. Goodness is what matters, not theology.
Thank you for receiving this message. I wish you well in all your endeavors.
Sincerely, The Buddha.
This message is very much in accord with the comment by Helen Padgett that The Buddha was at that time (August 1st, 1916) still in the Sixth Sphere. Incredible though it may seem that one of the world’s greatest spiritual teachers can be of limited progression, this is the ultimate proof of free will. Progression is not difficult, but unless one desires to draw closer to Father, that progression will stall and stagnate.
