All life is spirit. Spirit-life is the only kind of life there is in the universe, except the life of the different physical material forms or bodies that contain spirit-life. And these physical material forms or bodies have no life, except when they are in contact with spirit-life as a life-giving or generating force.

All life is spirit. And the life that is in man is a child-life; is a life that is still in the infant or childhood period of its development. Though this life that is in man has been in course of evolution from the remotest period of time, yet it has only obtained in the most highly developed—in those who are about to depart this life to return in physical form no more—a state of development that corresponds to the physical life of a child of seven to eleven years of age.

There are no matured spirit-lives in human form; no spirits that have attained to maturity either in this world nor in the first spiritual zone. The minute that a spirit-life has reached a spiritual development where a physically constructed body and intellect are no longer necessary to its development, it is transferred to the spiritual world.
