FRAGMENTS OF SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE 85

The senses of those of the spiritual world have a wide and ever-widening range of perception; a sense of perception that includes the physical, coarser and, therefore, slowly vibrating materials of the lower worlds, as well as those of the higher and spiritual worlds from which they are apart. But this sense of perception does not exceed that of the height to which the spirit-life has attained in its spiritual development and is, therefore, limited on the upward rather than on the downward scale.

While a disembodied spirit-life sees us as a spirit, yet it is also conscious of the coarser and, therefore, physical body, and is not deceived as to which world of life we belong, or as to the world in which we are for the moment to be found.

The spirit-lives of the spiritual worlds are able to get in touch with the physical world and to receive from the physical world such information as they may desire, yet their interests are no longer of the physical world, and what interests they may have had grow less as they evolve higher and higher in the scale of spiritual development, and advance further and further into the realms of the spiritual worlds.
