Fragments of Spiritual Knowledge 70

The recent dead can tell us nothing of the spiritual world because of the fact that they have not advanced beyond the borderland of the first spiritual zone, and know not what is beyond. Besides, most of the recently departed spirit-lives are earthbound—have yet some lives to live upon this earth—and will not advance, on their present journey, beyond the borderland of the first spiritual zone.

All the knowledge of the spiritual world that we may receive, and that can be relied upon, must come from spirit-lives who have long departed this life, and who completed their journey in human form before their departure.

Indeed, all other spirit-lives are silent upon this important question. Though they may hover near us and seek to guard and protect us, and even may warn us of approaching events that cast their shadows before, yet do they remain discreetly silent in regard to the spiritual world, because they know not of this world, and are not therefore in a position to speak of it. 

All knowledge of the spiritual world must be obtained from the more highly developed spirit-lives of the spiritual world; from spirit-lives that have at least passed beyond the borderland of the first spiritual zone.
