A spirit-life approaching birth in a physical body approaches upward, from a lower plane in the scale of development, and is usually not a new arrival in the human form, but a spirit-life that has inhabited the human form before, and is merely returning to continue, or complete, its journey in the physical world.

The completion of a spirit-life's journey in the physical world depends entirely upon the amount of spiritual vitality attained, and not upon any theory, creed, belief, nor even upon the possession of exact spiritual knowledge. However, the spirit-life that has attained to a point in its spiritual development where it can grasp, understand, and even on occasions perceive for itself exact spiritual truths, is nearing physical completion, and is about to enter into a new phase, or world, of life.

It is perfectly understood and known, by all who are in position to know anything about the spiritual world and life, that those in human form who have not yet attained a point in their spiritual development where they can know or grasp, or even possess an inkling of this spiritual world and life, are not nearing the end of their journey in human form; have still some physical lives before them in which to develop, to approach nearer to the spiritual world, and in which to obtain more spiritual vitality.

We cannot approach near to the spiritual world and life, in our development, without becoming in some way conscious of such world, and in possession of some exact knowledge concerning it.
