OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND POWERFUL ORATORY DIRECTLY FROM
THE AFTERLIFE - ABOUT THE AFTERLIFE - by SILVER BIRCH, a
highly credible afterlife intelligence teacher:
is the world where the artist finds all his dreams come
where the painter and the poet realize their ambition, where
genius has full power of expression, where the repressions
of earth are swept away and all gifts and talents are used
in the service of one another." ... "You have
not tasted the joys of the world of spirit. There is nothing
in your world of matter with which you can compare the life
of the spirit, freed from the trammels of the flesh, escaped
from the prison of the body of matter, with the liberty
to go where you will, to see your thoughts take shape, to
follow out the desires of your heart, to be freed from the
troubles of money."
you have not tasted the joys of the world of spirit. You
who are encased in matter do not yet comprehend beauty as
it can be. You have not seen our light, color, scenery,
trees, birds, rivers, streams, mountains, flowers- and yet
your world fears death."
strikers terror into your hearts. But you will only begin
to live when you are 'dead'. Now you live, but in realty
you are almost dead. So many are dead to the things of the
spirit. The little life-force flickers in their puny bodies,
but no spiritual things can find any response within them."
gradually we make progress. Gradually the force of the spirit
increases in strength all over your world of matter. Gradually
darkness retreats, as it must when confronted by the light
of spiritual truth. There are no words to compare the life
in your word of matter with the life in the world of spirit.
We who are 'dead' know so much more of life than you do."
are working according to a plan. We are not evangelists
conducting mass meetings and capturing people in the heat
of emotionalism. We labour to ensure that individuals become
convinced, one at a time, that they are satisfied with the
evidence they have received that they will continue after
physical death, and they are also satisfied that what we
have to teach neither insults their intelligence nor makes
their reason revolt. We must win you by evidence, by reason,
by intelligence, by affection and co-operation."
die is to enjoy freedom of the spirit, which has been imprisoned
behind the bars of the material body. Is it tragic to be
released from suffering, for the soul to come into its own?
Is it tragic to see wonders of color, to hear music that
does not belong to material expression? Do you call it tragic
to express yourself in a body that has no pain, to be able
to roam all over the world of matter in a flash and to taste
the beauties of the spirit life too?
"There is not in your world one artist who could capture
with his paints some of the glories of my world. There is
not one musician who could record some of the glories of
the music sphere with your notes. There is not one writer
who could describe in physical words the beauty of parts
of this world."
...We have flowers such as you have never seen, we have
colors such as your eye has never beheld, we have scenes
and forests, we have birds and plants, we have streams and
mountains. You have nothing to compare them with. An you
will be able to enjoy them, far, even thou you will be ghosts
you will be real ones ..."
"You come into our world now, but you do not remember.
You visit the spirit world every night. That is your preparation.
Otherwise, it would be such a shock when you come here to
start your real life in earnest. When you pass on, you will
remember your visits ... In its new expression, it will
bring to you all the memories that you have, the memories
of all experiences you have enjoyed."
"When there is complete control, and the conditions
are right in your world and in your surroundings, then we
can move matter and make it respond to our will. But it
is not always possible. So we have to do the best we can
under prevailing circumstances. But about the end result
we are positive. ... People can delay, hinder and obstruct,
but they cannot prevent the divine plan from fulfilling
itself in your world. People are the greatest obstacles
to their own progress. Stupidity, ignorance, superstition,
greed, the lust for power, these rule and prevent your world
from being the kingdom of heaven that it could be ..."
Your Churches have failed you; they are bankrupt. Your men
of science have failed you; they seek to destroy instead
of building. Your philosophers have failed you; theirs is
but the empty talk of idle speculation. Your statesmen have
failed you; they have not learned the supreme lesson that
only through sacrifice can peace come to your world. In
his despair, the child of the Great Spirit cries out for
mission is like yours- to undo all the evil that comes through
ignorance and superstition. We offer your world of matter
the priceless jewel of knowledge, before which all ignorance
must ultimately flee. Do you realize that, out of those
whom you have helped to put their feet on the paths of spiritual
progress, there is not one who does not return to you to
try to help you as you helped them? They , having recieved
service, strive to render service ... Do not think that
you are alone. Do not think that your house is empty (to
those husbands whose wife had passed over). Do not
think that your wife has left. She is with you still. She
is closer than ever she could be. Even though your eyes
may not see and your ears may not hear her spirit is close
to yours ..."
