Fragments of Spiritual Knowledge 77

The only claim that most of us have on the spiritual world is a love claim; is a love for someone on the other side that tends to draw that one near to us, and to establish rapport, or a state in which communication is made easy. However, this love claim may be on the side of the departed, as well as on our side, and may cause them to draw near to us, and to bring the conditions necessary to communication within our grasp.

A love claim is usually the connecting link between the physical and the spiritual world in so far as it concerns the first spiritual zone and the lives of those who have recently departed. But something more than a love claim is necessary when higher spiritual zones are to be entered and more highly developed life communicated with.

We may attain to the first spiritual zone, and to a communication with our departed loved ones there through the attractive power of love alone, but when we wish to get into communication with the higher zones, we must do so through evolution, growth, development—through attaining to a high state of vibratory refinement while still in human form.
