That word is LOVE!

There is a natural law which operates on the Astral Plane, as well as upon the material plane, and this law regulates and controls everything on that plane. The disembodied soul does not part with Nature when it leaves the earth-life—but rather it rises to a plane of Nature which is fuller, richer, and sweeter in every way than the best of which the earth-dwelling soul dreams. The dross of materiality burned away by the Astral vibrations, the soul blossoms and bears spiritual fruit in the new life. There is one word which above all others expresses the spirit meaning and purpose of the higher planes—and the phenomena thereof—that word is LOVE! And that Love is the Perfect Love which casteth out all Fear—and its blossom is Joy—and its fruit is Peace!
