FRAGMENTS OF SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE 84

There are many things that are inexpressible. Especially is this true when that which we wish to express is beyond the experience of living men. In the spiritual world, man has not passed beyond the first spiritual zone or that zone in which he has frequently been cast by death and does not know what is beyond.

He who is able to get into rapport and communication with the second spiritual zone of the spiritual world is confronted with many things that he does not understand, that have not entered into any of the experiences of his former lives and, therefore, are inexpressible.

Communication with the second and higher spiritual zones is not all that is necessary. We must be able to grasp, to understand, to translate and to express in human language that which an attempt is being made to communicate to us. In this, we cannot succeed entirely at first and only after prolonged efforts and repeated failures can we succeed at all.

In order that we may get in communication with the second and higher spiritual zones, it is necessary that we have completed our spiritual development in human form and are in vibratory rapport with the second and higher spiritual zones.

Having passed to physical completion and entered into rapport and communication with the second and higher spiritual zones, we find ourselves in a world of which we know nothing—a world that is governed by many laws which are new to us.

The laws of the second and higher spiritual zones, however, are not all new because some of these laws are but the continuation of laws which we have known on this earth plane and it is because of these laws which we have known that we are able to eventually understand.

Having grasped a limited knowledge of the second and higher spiritual zones through the laws of which we know, we proceed to study these laws in connection with the other laws of which we know nothing and succeed in grasping an idea of them. In this way, we advance slowly but surely upward and eventually arrive at an ability to understand, and to express, and even to convey to those who as yet know nothing, some faint though doubtless imperfect idea of the second and higher spiritual zones.
