Fragments of Spiritual Knowledge 50

Death, in the physical sense, does not change the life of the departing spirit in any way. The change is entirely with the conditions under which the life lives, and not with the life itself.

The spirit-life that has attained to the first spiritual zone has all the weaknesses, and all the vices, and all the virtues and strong points of character that it possessed in human form, save those that were of a purely physical nature, and that therefore disappeared with the physical vitality and life.

If the departed spirit-life was inclined to malice, and to hate, and to evil, it is still so inclined and has not, in fact, completed its physical journey, and must return again to earth in human form until it has learned its lessons, and obtains sufficient spiritual vitality and development to become a suitable citizen of the first spiritual zone.

Nature cannot be deceived, nor outwitted, nor taken advantage of. No man shall enter and remain in the spiritual world until he has attained to a certain point in his spiritual development. To this law there is no exception, nor is there, in fact, any exception to any of the laws of nature.
