"Why Each Soul Enters Earth" 


 
   
Each Soul Enters....

It is indeed true that each soul lives and moves and has its being in the Creative Forces, - God.
And it is for that purpose that each soul enters a material manifestation,
that it may put the will, the glory, the purpose of the Father-God first and foremost.
As exemplified in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.
Each soul is given the opportunity to manifest in the material plane.
And He - Jesus, the Christ - has shown how that God's promises may manifest
in the lives of individuals as they deal with their fellow men day by day.
2081-1

Each soul enters that awareness in this material experience
that the entity may glorify the Creative Force, or God,
in the entity's relationship with others.
2550-1

(Q) How should I conduct my life henceforth so as to extend my usefulness and my enjoyment
of the activities of this life, as far as possible?
(A) In that direction of the purpose for which each soul enters a material experience.
It is not for the gratifying of self, but to the glory and honor of God.
These should be the activities, then; as in appreciation of that opportunity,
and being of such a help to others as to maintain at least some consideration of self in same.
For, as ye treat your neighbor, as ye treat the least of thy brethren, ye are doing to thy Maker.
Then so live that it will be to the glory of God and to the honor of self.
3083-1

The entity may find the outlet for its better service; thus unfolding,
thus
becoming more conscious of its relationship to the Creative Forces or God.
For, this is the purpose for which each soul enters a material experience.
2835-1

The astrological influences are not indicated as those things which will happen
irrespective of what the entity does about same.
For, no influence, no urge may surpass the will of the entity.
Know, that (the will) is the birthright of each soul.
Each soul is a portion of that Creative Influence,
with the ability to manifest unto the glory of the Creator.
And it is then for that purpose that each soul enters material experiences.
Thus, as to warnings:
Know thy ideal, - physical, mental, spiritual, - and Who and What is the author of thy ideal.
Not as to what others may be to thee, but what THOU may be to others.
For with what measure ye mete, it is measured to thee again.
Thus each experience, as will be indicated in the sojourns through a material plane, is meeting self.
For, as has been given of old, "That which I hated has come upon me."
The slights, the slurs ye speak of others will be as thy chickens come home to roost.
2154-1

(Q) For what purpose did the entity come to the present parents?
(A) To make for a uniting of effort not only in the home but
in the purpose
for which each soul enters a material experience, to the glory of the Creative Forces or God
- and here to the entity it is given to use in voice.
3172-1


Each soul enters with a mission.
And even as Jesus, the great missionary, we all have a mission to perform.
Are we working with Him, or just now and then?
3003-1

Each soul enters the material plane with the urges innate that become manifested
by contacts, associations and activities, to meet the conditions and circumstances
that have been a part of the fuller experience of the entity in other sojourns in the earth.
1999-2

Know, - only the growth in grace and mercy lives forever.
ONLY such is eternal, - love that passeth understanding!
And
to create hope and harmony in the minds and hearts of those ye meet day by day
is that purpose for which each soul enters a material experience.
Thus does it grow to fruition by or through the seed of the spirit of truth.
2166-1

It will be well that the entity consider thoroughly that
the purpose for entrance into the earth plane
is not just to live, but to manifest a purposeful life, one that has its ideal in the spiritual
as well as in the mental and material things.
And, as the spiritual is the source of that which is eternal in the experiences of each soul,
the purposes and aims, as well as the desires, must be primarily in and from a spiritual source.
2082-1

Each soul enters material experiences for becoming more and more at an at-onement with Creative Forces,
AS they may be expressed in relationships to thy fellow man.
For as ye do it unto the least of thy brethren, ye do it unto thy Maker.
2035-1

Each soul enters not for the gratification of its own self, but for a growth,
that it may be the more helpful, the more hopeful in its experience;
that those things which are eternal may become more and more a part of the real or inner self.
1603-1

For as each entity gains the understanding, more and more is there the realization
that
the purposes for which each soul enters any given experience are to apply
the opportunities that are a part of the experience in bringing into the consciousness of others
the fact of the continuity of life, and to bring hope and cheer.
Hence each will find that the experiences of life are not for self-indulgence,
not for self-glory, not for self- aggrandizement; for these only bring heartaches as well as turmoil and strife.
And peace is the longing of the soul, and to be at-onement with Creative Forces alone
may bring peace in the consciousness of any.
622-4

There are material, mental, spiritual laws that govern one in the attaining of activities
in all phases of an individual experience.
Unless there is the application of those laws, - not tenets, not ideas but IDEALS,
- there cannot be that accomplished which is the fulfilling of the purpose for which each soul enters a material experience.
For it is not by chance but a purposefulness that each soul enters,
that it may become so developed, so applying itself in its relationships to the spiritual things
- through its mental and material associations - as to become a fit companion to its sources, to its Maker.

For the entity came not merely by chance.
For, the earth is a causation world, for in the earth, cause and effect are as the natural law.
And as
each soul enters this material plane, it is to meet or to give those lessons or truths that others, too,
may gain the more knowledge of the purpose for which each soul enters.
For, did the Master Jesus come by chance?
Or was it not according to the preparation made from the very foundations of the world?
For as another has indicated, "Without Him there was not anything made that was made."
Then ye, as a soul-entity, in the beginning sought companionship with God;
losing that companionship by choice of that which would satisfy or gratify a material desire only.
Thus, ye, as the Master, enter again and again, ye come to fulfill the law, the law that brought thy soul
into being to be one with Him. Hence at this particular period when there are changes to be wrought,
ye have work to do. For ye have been made conscious of the fact that all have fallen short of their duty,
and that if they would bring the earth to be a place in which even their own offspring would live,
they must learn to search for their God. And they must put away those gods of the Sidonians,
those gods of the heathen, gods of self, gods of gratifying of flesh; and crucifying the flesh
- in mind, in body, in spirit - show thyself worthy of being given the opportunity to express thyself to others.
As to urges latent and manifested from sojourns in the earth, as well as those interims between
- so long as an entity enters into this solar system of urges, it is subject to the laws thereof.
3645-1

The records as we find indicate an entity of unusual possibilities and probabilities.
As to whether or not the entity in the present uses these for developments or retardments,
towards filling those purposes for which each soul enters a material experience, depends upon the
application of the urges that we find indicated.
In giving the interpretation of the records, we find that the material sojourns tend to overshadow the astrological sojourns.
Hence we will find that the activities of the entity in material sojourns, through the experiences,
have - by its choice - changed the probabilities.
Thus, though we find one inclined to seek and to feel a great deal of spirituality, this is and has been often subjugated,
- to attain material positions.
These have been both pro and con.
And in the present the direction which the entity chooses will govern the experience,
as to whether it may be said to be a growth or a retardment.
For, the purposes of each sojourn are that the soul may become aware of its concept
of the Creative Force or God, and thus manifest same in its associations and dealings with its fellowman.
2090-1

The purposes for which each soul enters a material experience; oft completing jobs,
it might be said, through
being a helpmeet for situations that have been a part of the entity's experience
through various types of sojourns, - not so much towards individuals as towards
conditions that would affect many individuals.
2296-1

Know that each soul enters for the making of itself one with Creative Forces, or God.
Life is continuous.
The individual is free to use those God-given forces for creative purposes.
When these are turned to that of self, or self-aggrandizement,
they may easily sour and become shot through with the darts of the devil.
2706-1

Know that
each soul enters those environs where the application of the spiritual import of spiritual influences
into material affairs may the better enable that soul-entity to accomplish its best towards manifesting
the God-force or influence in the experience.
Study those things, then, well.
2690-1

The entity may know from this that no influence or urge, whether astrological or from material sojourns,
surpasses the will of the individual entity, - that birthright given to man, and to the sons of men,
which makes man in this three-dimensional world different from the rest of creation.
Only man may defy his Maker.
These, then, are
the purposes for which each soul enters material experiences;
to make self aware of - and to conform with - creative purposes in material manifestations.
Thus in interpreting these records the desire is to make them helpful in the experience of this entity;
minimizing then the faults, in self and in others; magnifying the virtues in all with whom the entity may come in contact.
For, as the body becomes that which it assimilates, so the mind - as it feeds upon the mental and spiritual food
- grows toward that development of its awareness as to its relationships, or from such it denies that which is the basis of life itself.
For, life IS the manifestation of that influence or force called God in the material plane.
2489-1

For, the abilities, the ethical activities, many of the abilities that lie latent,
need to find expressions 
in the relationships to others;
that the entity may find a greater expression of self, and
that it may be 
a fuller expression of a SPIRITUAL ideal.
For, that is the purpose for which each soul enters the material sojourn.
Hence, as we find, there are urges latent and manifested.
Those latent arise from the astrological sojourns or activities,
as well as those of an environmental nature through the sojourns in the earth.
The entity's appearances in the earth indicate that the astrological aspects, as nominally called,
are little in keeping with the abilities or latent talents manifested in the experiences of the entity.
These as a composite, though, may indicate those urges from the combinations
of the latent and manifested forces from astrological AND earthly or material sojourns.
2327-1

For, each soul enters materiality with a purposefulness.
And it is according to
the application of self in those activities that would magnify the virtues,
minimize the faults in self as well as in others, and make application of creative influences and forces,
that makes for the growths or retardments in any material experience.
There have been all characters of experience through the activities of the entity,
- those in the material as well as in the mental, as well as in the spiritual,
that have brought discouragements, as well as periods of affluence.
Only when there is the full application of self in any phase or activity
in which the creative influences or the ideals are manifested, does there come peace.
When there is the application rather for self-indulgence, self-aggrandizement,
or only for material gains, then it eventually brings distortion, disturbance and distress,
- even into the material and the mental and the spiritual aspects of an entity.
1862-1

(Q) How may I bring into activity my pineal and pituitary glands,
as well as the Kundalini and other chakras, that I may attain to higher mental and spiritual powers?
Are there exercises for this purpose, and if there are, please give them.
(A) As indicated, first so FILL the mind with the ideal that it may vibrate throughout the whole of the MENTAL being!
Then, close the desires of the fleshly self to conditions about same.
MEDITATE upon "THY WILL WITH ME." Feel same.
Fill ALL the centers of the body, from the lowest to the highest, with that ideal;
opening the centers by surrounding self first with that consciousness,
"NOT MY WILL BUT THINE, O LORD, BE DONE IN AND THROUGH ME."
And then, have that desire, that purpose, not of attaining without HIS direction, but WITH His direction,
- who is the Maker, the Giver of life and light; as it is indeed in Him that we live and move and have our being.
(Q) Is there any method whereby I might develop such faculties as a perfect memory; intuition, telepathy, astral projection,
and healing of others, as well as myself?
(A) All healing of every nature comes from the DIVINE within that body, or the body applied to such methods or manners of healing.
The attuning of self, - not as to that this or that may be accomplished. But remember, as has ever been given of old,
ALL manner of expression, all life, emanates from one source - God! God in thyself; not as "I will, but as Thou wilt."
Let that be the purpose, the import, the intent, the DESIRE; and that which is needed for the bringing of its abilities and faculties of every nature in attunement will be done.
And thus give off, in harmonious accent, that as will be pleasing in His sight, - the purpose for which each soul enters a material experience.
(Q) How may I best be used as a channel to be of mental and spiritual assistance to others?
(A) First by finding self and self's relationship, and the Creative Forces being manifested in thy daily activity, thy daily speech, thy daily conversation, thy daily convocation with thy fellow men; in that each activity is as UNTO the Lord!
1861-4

For, each soul enters not purposeless but purposefully, that there may be
a greater manifestation of that the entity has held and does hold as its ideal
concerning creative influences or eternal influences in the experience of self and others.
That is the purpose for which each soul manifests,
that it may make manifest in the lives of others not merely for self
but to be to someone else that ye would have someone else be to thee!
These become radical thoughts to the entity at times;
yet know that one is constantly meeting self.
Then, analyze self.
As we would analyze or interpret the records as we find them here,
- these are chosen with the desire and purpose that this may be
a helpful influence to the entity at this time;
that it may make manifest that which is its ideal.
For, no matter how contradictory the experiences may be for an entity, - as for this entity,
- there is ever the ideal manner toward which the entity seeks expression.
Learn the LAW; that ye reap what ye sow!
The manner in which ye measure to others, it will be measured to thee again!
That is an unchangeable law!
Then, live the law; be the law, as respecting such.
2185-1

For, individuals enter not merely by chance, but as an influence or force
that they may make manifest that as may enable them to become aware
of their individual relationships with the Creative Forces, or God.
For He hath not willed that any soul should perish,
but that all shall come to know their relationships with Creative Force,
and make MANIFEST such in their dealings with their fellow men.
Then, there are urges which arise from the sojourns during the interims between the activities in a material plane, - that is, those designated as astrological aspects.
2170-1

Oft it may appear hard to understand why such and such has to be, or is the experience, with the attempts to keep in line with that the entity hopes to accomplish. Yet, if there is the proper consideration, each will realize that in whatever state one finds self it is that necessary for making each a better channel to magnify, in his or her own experience, the glory of that which is the ideal of the entity.
Thus, as one analyzes self, one realizes that there are things spiritual, things mental, things material.
These that appear from the unseen in the mental and the spiritual realm are not always given voice to, but one realizes - by analysis - that one has not thought right nor

expressed self in keeping with that which is the desire, the intent, the purpose of the spiritual concept.
Hence one of those influences which should ever be first and foremost is consistency, as well as persistency.
And know that the ideals must ever be of a constructive, creative nature, if there is to be harmony, peace, or even a semblance of material success.
For, whatever ye sow, that must ye also reap.
And each entity is in the present the result of that it has done ABOUT that it claimed as its ideal in other experiences!
Thus we find oft conflicting influences.
Then, in relation to this entity, - while there are urges arising from the astrological as well as earthly sojourns, we find in this entity's experience there is little of the astrological nature that would be in keeping with what has been, or is in the present, ordinarily designated as the influence from the astrological aspects.
Yet there are abilities, there are virtues in the entity's desires and hopes and aspirations. However, these have not always been chosen well in the present experience.
Thus we find oft the desires of the mental self grow to be much larger than that materially accomplished, in its associations with others.
The abilities for the imaginative experiences, the imaginative influences, those having to do with relationships with others, have been and are an ENORMOUS experience through which the entity has lost sight, or failed to see the possibilities of, in the present application.
For, the abilities as a writer, as one to give emotion, to give animation to those influences and things having to do with relationships in every form or manner of life, have found, and may yet find, expression in the writing; not only books and short stories but articles pertaining to the influence of various phases of man's experiences as related one to another, - as the effect some great labor saving device has been in the lives of individuals as mothers, housekeepers, through the aid to such - in this particular land; also as to the variations which have come about in the experiences of this or that individual in particular walks of life owing to the thought of some mother, father, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, or the forethought of such in designating the manner in which not only their savings are to be used but as to the activities to be brought about in the experience of the young.
For, how oft has the entity contemplated, in its associations, as to what manner of life or direction should be taken! But remember that all of these should be, "As ye would that others do to you, do ye even so to them."
Thus the ideal is builded. Thus there arises the manner, the chance, the emotion, the awakening, the awareness of the relationships being brought into the experience.
2160-1

For thou art indeed thy brother's keeper. There are those opportunities ever being presented for the real abilities which are within the experience and the consciousness of the entity. In taking advantage of, or using, such opportunities in the proper direction, the entity may make his paths straight, and know the purposes for which each soul enters a material experience; that these are not just that ye may have to hold, other than as a keeper of opportunities in hope, in love, in faith, in patience, as unto thy Maker.
It is not sufficient, then, to merely live that ye may outwardly appear as a successful individual, - not too bad nor too good, - but to be one who, irrespective of others, chooses the better place.
2080-1

As to the appearances of the entity in the earth's plane, - these we find have been oft and quite varied, and are a contributory influence to the diversity of subjects as to interests, and the lack of centralization by the entity. Hence the need of the cultivation of this (the centralization), within this present experience, if there would be the greater development, the greater advancement in filling the purposes for which each soul enters a material experience.
2077-1

For, each sojourn is of a purposeful nature; not by chance, but that there may be the fulfilling of that purpose for which each soul enters into a material experience, - that is, to be a channel of blessings to others in the ways and manners that the soul may take hold upon eternal life, in those manners that have been exemplified through Him, - who is the way and the life in the earth, in the heavens, in all forces of same.
2072-1

These records we find are full. Many varied phases of the records here present themselves for interpretation. These, however, are chosen with the desire, the purpose, that this may be a helpful experience for the entity; enabling the entity to find something which answers within, - as to the relationships of self with the universal consciousness, or God; thus using, applying the many gifts, the many abilities which are latent and manifested in the experience of the entity, through this sojourn, for the glorification of those purposes for which each soul enters a
material experience.
The natural inclinations and tendencies of the entity, as will be seen, particularly from the material sojourns, influence or urge the entity to become and be a seeker.
This one principle the entity must gain, or become more aware of, - if the greater understanding, the greater knowledge would be attained, or the greater good accomplished:
It is in the giving of that which is attained that the abilities come for greater comprehension and understanding.
This applies not only in the material. For, in this present day, - though hardships make it necessary for the consideration of economic influences, and many activities have caused the entity to oft curtail its efforts in some directions, - fame and fortune will be the lot of the entity in this experience, unless there is a failing entirely in the use of that which IS in hand.
In considering the interpretation of the records here, - this as we find may be said to be a composite of not only the material sojourns, but of the sojourns in the interims between the material sojourns.
And these (the material sojourns) have been many. Thus there has been confusion of many natures in this present experience. Gradually, though, the entity has grown to comprehend, - not so much because of necessity as because of the earnest seeking and the desire to be used as a channel through which hope, help, aid, might come to others.
This is the greater influence for good in the experience of this entity, and it is that which is to be cultivated the more throughout this experience; YET in somewhat more of an humble manner than the mien has indicated at times.
2067-1

These (the astrological urges) are merely to point out that which is existent, and then to assist or direct or indicate the manner in which such may be met in the experience.
Each soul enters a material sojourn, throughout the various phases of its development, for a purposefulness; that purpose that the soul may become aware of the influence of Creative Forces or God in its experience, its life, - and that the expressions of same in the relationships to others are to be in such measures and manners as to indicate that such IS the consciousness of the entity in its daily relationships with others, and with those influences that may appear to weigh heavily upon the entity at times.
Realize, then, that SELF cannot bear the burdens alone, ever; only by the whole trust in Him who is the way, the truth and the light. And in that consciousness, realize He hath not given thee a greater burden than ye may bear - with Him! For He hath given, "Take my yoke upon you - learn of me, for my yoke is easy, my burden is light," to those who wholly trust in the Lord. For, "Though He slay me, yet will I love Him" should be the burden of thy thoughts to others and to those obligations and conditions which surround thee day by day.
Not that there is to be the constant condemning of others, nor the allowing of self to be spit upon, or to be not considered. This He has not asked; but that ye give and pray, "Mercy, Lord, and not sacrifice." This, then, adhere to; in thy life day by day; meditating upon the promises and the life He hath indicated will bring to thy experience the joy He hath promised, in "My peace I leave with thee," not as the world knoweth peace, but as ye may know in thine own heart when thy daily life, thy daily conversation, thy daily convocation, is such that there is nothing THERE that condemns thee!
As to the appearances in the earth, we find these are not great in number, yet they are quite varied in their activities and environs. Thus they bring this emotional nature that, as we have indicated, is a part of the experience; that can ONLY be met in the wholly trusting in the LAW OF LOVE, and not in the law of an eye for an eye, or a tooth for a tooth; but rather as ye would that it should be measured to thee, measure ye even so to others - in every phase of thy experience.
2061-1

Each soul enters an experience for the greater expression in that of definite development; not for material or mental alone, but that each soul, each entity, may be the better or the greater expression of that which will prepare or bring the ability to be aware of the relationships of the entity or soul to Creative Forces.
In the experiences of this entity, as we find here from the records, - this may be said to be a composite of the urges, latent and manifested in the entity in the present. As to what the entity does about these urges, as may be drawn from that which is the entity's ideal or purpose, as to the creative influences or forces, - this will depend upon the entity's application according to the ideal set, as to whether this experience becomes a development or retardment.
2060-2

Upon time and space is written the thoughts, the deeds, the activities of an entity - as in relationships to its environs, its hereditary influence; as directed - or judgment drawn by or according to what the entity's ideal is.
Hence, as it has been oft called, the record is God's book of remembrance; and each entity, each soul - as the activities of a single day of an entity in the material world - either makes same good or bad or indifferent, depending upon the entity's application of self towards that which is the ideal manner for the use of time, opportunity and the EXPRESSION of that for which each soul enters a material manifestation.
The interpretation then as drawn here is with the desire and hope that, in opening this for the entity, the experience may be one of helpfulness and hopefulness.
Thus, in seeing self as it really is before the SELF, before the Throne, before the Universal Consciousness, it is the hope that this will bring a better understanding as to what the purposes of an experience are in the material plane; with the daily activities and urges that arise from material circumstance, mental attitudes and the work to be accomplished of whatever nature this may be.
Hence we find from the records, the astrological aspects or sojourns of the entity or soul between its earthly manifestations indicate that which has been a part of the entity's experience.
For as the tree falls, so may it lie.
Yet remember, God hath not willed that any soul should perish, but hath with each temptation presented a way, a manner of correction, of atonement, of betterment.
Thus as the soul passes from the aspects about the material environs, or the earth, we find the astrological aspects are represented as stages of consciousness; given names that represent planets or centers or crystallized activity.
Not that flesh and blood, as known in the earth, dwells therein; but in the consciousness, with the form and manner as befits the environ. And the judgment is drawn as to the mental attitudes.
Hence we find the mental body is both finite and infinite, a part of self and yet a part of a universal consciousness - or the mind of the Maker.
Thus those activities of consciousness present attitudes that may be a part of the individual activity of an entity in the material experience; depending upon the choice of that it, the entity, through its will, may choose to manifest.
1650-1

Each soul enters that it may make its paths straight. For they alone who walk the straight and narrow way may know themselves to be themselves, and yet one with the Creative Forces.
Hence the purpose for each entrance is that the opportunities may be embraced by the entity for living, being, that which is creative and in keeping with the Way.
For, the Father has not willed that any soul should perish, and is thus mindful that each soul has again and again - and yet again - the opportunity for making its paths straight.
In giving the urges which are innate and manifested, - know that these are according to spiritual, mental and material laws. For each entity, each soul, finds itself in a three-dimensional world; body, mind, soul. Hence man in his search has given the Godhead a three-dimensional expression; thus meeting each phase of each soul's experience. Thus the way is opened continuously; that they who seek may find, that they who believe that He is may know Him and thus pattern their lives, - physically, mentally, spiritually, - according to the pattern which has been set for each soul. The influences from astrological aspects come as innate urges in the mental or the dream state, while the influences from the appearances in the earth come as the emotions of the entity.
2021-1

In giving the interpretations of the records as we find them here, these are chosen with the desire that the experience may be a helpful one for the entity, - not only in its material and mental experience but also for the purposes for which each soul enters an experience.
For, life IS real; and there are purposes with the creative Forces of which each soul is a part, for its experiences in the material sojourn.
For as the spirit of truth seeks its kind, only man's desire for ego or self-expression turns same into error, or disturbing forces or influence.
Then, to ward against such is the purpose of each soul's appearance in a material plane.
2006-1

Each soul enters not perchance, but that there may be that fulfilling of those promises in Him. He has not willed that any soul should perish, but has with each temptation prepared a way of escape. So, each appearance is an opportunity for the soul - in its relationships with conditions, experiences, times AND the fellowman - to manifest that it has stressed; that ideal which draws one closer to or separates one from that Creative Force.
In analyzing the records here of the entity, these as a composite of astrological sojourns, as well as the material or earthly experiences, we find as tendencies and inclinations, latent AND manifested in the INDIVIDUALITY of this entity
1614-2

Know that life is not just all to live, but to make it - life - creative, as it of its nature IS, - and not in that of self-indulgence nor self-aggrandizement; for these only bring disappointments, heartaches, headaches.
Only that which is eternal or creative in its motive, in its purpose, can be and is that which brings harmony, joy and blessings.
These influences are present. They are recognized by the entity; and though they may bring - as in some experiences had - a separation from some associations, they will bring in their wake - if chosen properly - greater harmonious activities and more ability for activities that will bring the filling of the purpose for which each soul enters an experience.
In the summing of the natures, - we find that so oft the entity has entered the material plane as to be bound up in the emotions of the physical self that are oft inclined to be mistaken for spiritual or the lasting or the necessary influences.
But Spirit is creative. And while creative influences are about the entity, the greater saving grace of the entity may be said to be its ability to laugh at adversity when others would cry; to be able to make a joke of the most sacred things as well as those that are in the realm of the ridiculous.
1999-1

In entering the present experience we find the entity coming with much that must be met as karmic influences in the now, through the application of that which is the consciousness of a soul-entity as related to the Creative Consciousness in a material world. For, it is for soul development that each soul enters an experience, taking on a material body endowed with the attributes of materiality through the influence of the forces or laws that bring into being those conditions in the experience of a soul. Hence the entity in entering in the present finds many conflicting experiences with the soul, the material, even the mental or innate urges, as well as the sojourns in those environs about the earth that have their own peculiar vibrations from their associations or activities in this realm of activity; thus making for, to the soul, in any environ, the innate urges that arise as they are awakened in the experience. Hence those influences that we find in the Jupiterian experience make for the vastness of scope, of activity, in the mental and soul experience of the entity; making for those associations in places and
positions in the earth, as related to those that deal with the groups; whether in the economic conditions, the social, the political influences and power; those in office by choice or by preference through the application of their own will forces have been and are a portion of the entity's experience. These applied in the experience in any sojourn, or in this, in such measures that are in keeping with that which is set as the universal law as related to the divine that is a manifestation within the experience and the birthright of each soul, whether into the earth or out of the earth, will bring their own reward. As ye do it unto the least of those in thine experience, whether in this, that or the other environ, ye do it unto the living force or the Creative Energies known as the guards, or God, in the universal influence.

For as each soul enters the material experience it has the opportunity, with the Creative Forces, to give a greater manifestation in the life, in the principles, in the application of self to others to BETTER the environs, the world, for the entity having lived in same.
And thus as an entity passes through an experience, these are the purposes, - to magnify the glory of the living God.
In the astrological aspects we find these become only latent urges, manifested through the dreams or visions or the longings of the entity; while the aspects presented through the sojourns in the material plane are as urges through the emotions of the entity.
1983-1

Know that it is not by chance that a soul enters a material experience, but as the entity has experienced in some activities here and there, too often have they become "there's" without any "here's" in the religious experience.
These ye have allowed to become sour, - vinegar in thine own experience. Self has sought so much of self, there has not been the stopping to take time to have the real blessings that have been thine, nor to observe the opportunities that have come into thy experience through this material sojourn.
Patience and contentment ye must learn. Their opposites are thy faults. Unless ye correct them, ye will indeed remain most miserable in this sojourn.
But study first to show thyself approved, within thyself. The law of the Lord IS perfect. And unless thy life and thy associations with thy fellow man, as well as with thy wife, be founded upon spiritual attributes, ye may indeed become a wanderer; yea, one even losing the blessing the same as Esau - thy father.
In these experiences then, apply first. Know that there is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof is indeed death. These are not God's ways, - they are thine own.
1974-1

This information, as we have indicated, may be a part of the experience of the entity in the present in gaining the greater concept of the purposes for which each soul enters a sojourn; yet unconsciously coming through attraction in an environ through which there may be opportunities for activities in which purposes, aims and desires, longings, hopes, fears, may all be made clear through the physical and mental application of truth in spiritual forces, - or the application of the seeds of faith, hope and love, kindness and patience.
And all of these will become, and are, a part of the experience of those about the entity; and if these will be applied in this experience in such manners, a study of that which is the soul may be better comprehended by those who give themselves in aiding a soul to find itself.
For it is as a split personality in the present, with the reflexes forming that which has been indicated, - that causes the incoordination in the mental and spiritual and physical forces of this body.
1969-2

We would choose these as the interpretation, which - if applied in the experience of the entity - may be the more helpful in the accomplishing and the fulfilling of the purposes for which each soul enters the material experience.
For, one comes not be chance but through the choice of the relative relationships between the seeker and the sought, - as in relationships to the purposes for which individual souls manifest in materiality, through the material or earthly experiences.
We find there are emblems, there are the numerological aspects, as well as those that come from the astrological sojourns.
As a compilation, or a composite of these (but without respect to what the entity has done or may do with same), we find these indicated as innate manifestations of this entity in the present:
1949-1

For each soul enters a material experience for some application of self, and is constantly meeting itself. For the will, of course, is the birthright of every soul, and thus chooses those directions or applications in which there will be made use of those tenets or rules or regulations that are ideals or ideas in the experience of the entity.
Then, there is the will of the creative forces and the purposes for which each soul or entity enters an experience. For He hath not willed that any soul should perish, but has with every temptation prepared a way, a means not only of escape but of turning that which may appear to be a physical conflict into greater channels for manifestation of the glorifying of the name of the Father, the Son, - THROUGH the application of self in its relationships to its opportunities and conditions that present themselves in the experience of an entity.
1947-1

There may be those considerations of the virtues, the vices; that, applying the rules and regulations as should be the part of everyone's experience, there may come to the entity an appreciation and a realization of the purposes for which each soul enters a material experience.
God hath not willed that any soul should perish; hence He has given and does constantly give the opportunity for each soul's manifestation through the material plane, that there may come the greater activities in the affairs of each soul or entity to become more aware, and to apply self in that which is the justification by faith through the manner that has been shown for each individual for his or her own consideration, as to what will or will not be done respecting same.
Hence we find, as for the experiences of this entity in the material sojourn as well as the sojourn without the material plane, - the urges remain as latent activities to be applied in such a way and manner as to be a light or guide unto the many in thy dealings with thy fellow man.
1938-2

In giving the interpretations of the records as we find them here, a great deal may be given. This is chosen with the desire and purpose that the information may be helpful in the entity's experience, and that in the application of same may come a greater understanding of the purposes for which each soul enters a material experience.
Without respect to the entity's application of the urges that arise from the astrological or the material sojourns, this may be given as a composite of this experience - from the earthly sojourns as well as from the sojourns during the interims:
1908-1

These interpretations are given with the desire, and hope, that this may be a helpful experience for the entity, and this enabling the entity to become - or to be - that which may bring the more helpful, hopeful, satisfying experiences; and thus fulfil the purposes for which each soul enters a material sojourn.
The entity in its urges and its activities, its latent abilities, its influence and force, is not what may be termed an ordinary individual; yet this entity, what it does or what it does not do, might be used as an example of that as may be given through such information here, from the sources of the entity's records - or the akashic activities may be given as PROOF OF SAME. These are given, however, with the desire that these are given, however, with the desire that these may be a helpful force.
Urges latent and manifested arise from sojourns in astrological aspects. Not that a sojourn in Mercury, Mars, Venus, Uranus or Jupiter forces the entity to act in this or that manner - as a reaction to urges or opportunities, but rather it is as a training - just as the practise of much that is latent and manifested in the emotional life is from the earthly sojourns of the entity. Because of its training, its environs, certain urges arise. So, from the astrological sojourns latent urges are manifested; just as in the material sojourns the application of self respecting latent and manifested urges brings the highly emotional nature.
1885-2

Each soul enters materiality with a purposefulness. And it is according to the application of self in those activities that would magnify the virtues, minimize the faults in self as well as in others, and make application of creative influences and forces, that makes for the growths or retardments in any material experience.
There have been all characters of experience through the activities of the entity, - those in the material as well as in the mental, as well as in the spiritual, that have brought discouragements, as well as periods of affluence.
Only when there is the full application of self in any phase or activity in which the creative influences or the ideals are manifested, does there come peace.
When there is the application rather for self-indulgence, self-aggrandizement, or only for material gains, then it eventually brings distortion, disturbance and distress, - even into the material and the mental and the spiritual aspects of an entity.
1862-1

Each soul enters in each experience for a lesson, a development.
Much in abilities, much in promise, much in accomplishments, then, lie ahead for this entity. Not only through that the entity HAS accomplished, but for the failures and for the progress made; that there may be more and more of the perfect way shown.
Who, what, is the way?
In Him ONLY is the way, the water of life, the bright and morning star, the rose of Sharon; the GLORIOUS, the mighty, the HOLY One!
1089-3

(Q) What special mental and spiritual training should be given during this period?
(A) This is the beginning of the awakening to the comparative emotions for the body, and these are well to be kept in that way to aid in giving full expression of the imaginative influences as well as the emotions of the body - that are aroused by the awareness of relationships as

the body finds same, or entity finds same, in its development for COMPARISONS of this or that.
For, as will be seen, there will be gradually - through these particular periods - the activities of the mind in such a manner as to show how the body-mind begins to expand by comparison, see?
(Q) What is meant by the warning that the very causes of the individual's physical, mental and material emotions must be given consideration from a spiritual angle, and how can this be observed?
(A) Too oft, with the imaginative influences and forces of the body as it awakes to the awareness of a physical AND spiritual emotion, there is the training AWAY FROM the individuality of the entity that is exercised through the urges which arise innately in the experience of the entity through the awareness period, to what may be called the personality of the individual, see? Hence the warning is that the entity should be allowed to give EXPRESSION of those emotions, or experiences that it will gradually begin to describe, - as to the hearing, seeing, feeling in its activity, - and that there be the explanation that these arise within the self from the SPIRITUAL and not from the bodily emotions alone.
This, then, is that which will enable a greater influence of the spirituality of the urge to become so much a part of the entity; enabling same to be as real in its experience as its daily life.
(Q) Is the soul which is/was hoped might come in the place of this entity, and as a male, that which was Samuel, the son of Hannah?
(A) As indicated, as outlined, the prayer to and through the guiding force of Samuel will aid in the help to Samuel's mother.
(Q) If so, is this the soul which will aid the entity and to which the entity can pray for guidance?
(A) As just indicated. This has been indicated before; it is indicated here.
For, as some would have it, the hierarchies are not unmindful of the developing of souls through the experiences in the earth. Hence such is not OUT of the ordinary, but the natural spiritual development in and through the very association and the prayer and care of those to whom such a soul is entrusted.
For, as has been indicated, there is - to be sure - something of a choice of the entity seeking expression. In the material world and materiality, it is more often trained or convinced AWAY from its natural spiritual import. For, is it not for spiritual development that each soul enters? and not merely for mental OR material or physical?
For in the Pattern, which is the way and the manner, we find that these phases are ever considered as one; yet the Mother kept these and pondered them in her heart.
What meaneth this? save as to that injunction which would be given to every parent: Ponder well the expressions that arise from the emotions of a developing child; for, as has been forever given, train them in the way they should go and when they are old they will not depart from the way.
(Q) Explain why the change of entity and the change of sex took place, between the time when a son was indicated through this channel, on September 23, 1937, and the birth of the child.
(A) This, as has been indicated, was given that there might be the greater opportunity for the developing of the entity Hannah UNDER the direction of Samuel, with the aid AND direction of thought by the parents. This was deemed by the seeker as the channel for expression.
(Q) What is the mission of the entity in this experience?
(A) That the glory of the Father in the Son may be the more magnified in the lives of those the entity meets.
As the entity brought into the experience of a peoples a new form, a new character of a determining factor between the peoples and the worship of the living God, so may the entity in this experience bring into experience - through the preparation of its body, its mind for the creating or bringing into conception - an activity that may, AS the son then, again revolutionize that relationship of man to the awareness of his relationship to God.
For the offspring of this entity will anoint a holy one!
1521-2

Each soul enters the material plane for the fulfilling of a purpose; that it, the soul, may be one with the Creative Forces. And when such is allowed to be overridden because of the application for material gains, or for self-indulgence, or self-glorification, or for self-exaltation, - then stumblingblocks are in the experience.
Yet, as with this entity, we find there is a continual harking to those innate urges for a greater spiritual understanding, that innate call for a greater spiritual awakening.
Confuse these not with the material or earthly gains. For the earthly or material gains must be the OUTCOME, the RESULT of a spiritual, a mental purpose, a desire, an exemplification of same in the dealings and relationships with others, for it to be a permanent or growing experience, and to not become more and more of such a fluctuating nature as to continue to bring greater and greater confusion - until, in the aims and purposes, there is lost the real desire for which the soul sought material manifestations.
As to the appearances in the earth, - these we find not appearing to be so many, yet these that are chosen to be given may illustrate those things that have been as the virtues as well as the faults in the entity's application of that it has sought and does seek to exemplify or manifest through this material experience.
As has been indicated, the abilities, the qualities are latent, - yet these are to be applied - as with all - as He gave; that of him to whom much is given is much required. This was illustrated in how the Master related the incident of the five or ten or one or two talents being given, and the use of same as a growth, an increase; not merely of the material but that the glory of the purpose might be made manifest.
So in the experience of this individual, this soul-entity, who seeks in this present experience to find itself and its relationships to not only the Creative Force but to its fellow man, and in the manifestation with and among its fellow men, - to exemplify that which IS the purpose in the mental and spiritual aspects of this present sojourn.
1849-2

In giving the interpretations of the records, these are chosen with the desire and purpose that they may be a helpful influence in the experience.
Such information is not merely for the purpose of criticism, nor merely to give interesting experiences through which the entity has passed that give unusual abilities in given lines in the present; but that good for Good's sake, for the developing of the mind and soul of the entity, may be awakened within the application of the present entity.
For it is not ALL just to be alive, nor all to have that in the material experience that satisfies for the moment.
For fame and fortune easily take wings and fly away; and only that remains that is the purpose and intent of the soul as IT, the soul, seeks for mental and material manifestations of the true purposes for which each soul enters a material experience.
1828-1

In giving the answers to the questions indicated here, it is well that the entity consider that all phases of his activities are included in the information applied. The purpose, as indicated, is that the entity use same not for material gains alone but to fulfil that place, that purpose for which each soul enters a material experience.
Thus, through the application of the abilities, the entity may gain a greater and a closer relationship with the Creative Forces, - in being and in filling those purposes in the material experience.
Keep this in mind, then, in interpreting that which has been given, as well as that which may be indicated here.
For, material gains - alone - are far from fulfilling the purposes of a soul's entrance into materiality.
1797-2

For each soul enters an experience in the earthly or material sojourn for its own development, for its activity as related to the constructive spiritual influence in the material planes; to lose self more and more in constructive activity for definite purposes.
880-2

Each soul enters the earth to meet its own self, in its own shortcomings. Yet there is an advocate with Creative Forces, with God; in Jesus, the Christ, who has set the example of every nature - and He has set the example of freedom of speech, freedom of activity; yet bound within that which is ever constructive. He has not given freedom that is licentious, or freedom that is self-indulgent, or freedom that does not consider the needs, the desires, the positions of others; but in the example as is set in Him each soul may find that stimulation for activities in material associations with others to see not the sordid things of an experience, not grudges, faultfindings, but rather those that are set as He hath given - "In patience become ye aware of your souls."
Hence He meets with those who give of themselves for a material service in that in which they themselves may find the greater heights of beauty - as in song, in music, and the activities in such. He meets them in those very influences - as has been given by Him, as to whom He gave the keys - longsuffering, self-abasement, humbleness, patience.
These be those things in which or against which there is no law, but they are the fruits of the spirit. Then live them day by day in thy associations with not only thy companions and thy friends, but with thy foes and with those who even speak despitefully of thee - for they spoke thus of Him.
Then, if ye will keep those things that have been committed unto thee, the love of the Father as is shown in the Son, and apply same in those fields in which thy mind, thy activity may find a more beautiful expression - in the fields of music, as the pianist or the organist (but these for service to Him, for the praise, for the glory, for the honor of Him) - ye will find the greater source of happiness, the greater field of expression, the greater means of building that in the experience of self which will bring to THEE peace, harmony, freedom in Him, and glory in thy
service to thy fellow men and to thy Maker - through Him!
1352-4

Each soul in entering an earth's experience does so through the graciousness, the mercy of the living Father, that the soul may become such that it may be in that association, that relation to the Creative Forces or the Father which was, is, the will of the Father in bringing such into consciousness in the first or beginning.
In entering then, each soul enters with the influences both latent and manifested that have been a part of the experience of the entity. This to be sure includes then relationships with others.
Then what is the purpose of each soul entering a material manifestation? That it may be a witness bearer for and unto the glory of the Father which has been manifested through the Son, even Jesus; in making then those activities through and in which such may be the purpose, the desire of the individual entity.
It is not then that there may be the satisfying of the mental or material body, or mind. It is not to the indulgence of, nor to the glory of self alone, but that - through the very activities of the body and mind - the fruits of the spirit of truth may be manifested in the material experience.
These truths, these experiences, only find expression in relationships with others. Just as He hath given, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these, thy brethren, ye have done it unto me, - inasmuch as ye did NOT these things unto thy brethren, ye did them not unto me."
Hence in the relationships, the meetings with others in WHATEVER form or manner, such are not coincidental but are rather as purposeful experiences.
Then there must be the filling of the purpose, if there will be the glorifying of His love, His truths, His presence, by that done to and through the activities with the fellow man, - whoever, wherever such may be; in such a way and manner that His glory is made manifest in thy dealings with thy fellow man.
Look then into thine own heart, thine own mind. See thyself, as it were, pass by. What is thy desire? What is thy purpose? What - and WHO - is thy ideal?
The analysis of such can only be drawn by self. And use as the measuring stick of thyself those truths, those purposes.
What gave He as the whole law? To love thy God with all thy mind, thy body, thy purpose; and thy NEIGHBOR as thyself! This is the whole law.
And the manner of execution of same is in that as He gave, "As ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them."
These are the principles, these are the basic truths upon which joy, peace and understanding may be thine; and thy life, thy activities, thy associations with others will ever be beautiful, peaceful, harmonious.
And as ye do these, ye will find more and more the glory of His presence abiding with thee day by day!
This does not preclude that ye have joy, but that ye have joy and have life and have it more ABUNDANTLY, - and not in a manner that ye have or do become or may become subject to those things which would bind or hinder thee in thy thought, thy purpose, thy activity.
Let thy prayer, thy meditation then be - as ye choose this day whom ye will serve, whether the fleshpots of thine own carnal self or the duties, the joys, the harmonies of Him who has given, "Come unto me, ye that are disturbed or heavy laden - take my purpose, my yoke, - learn of me, and ye shall find rest unto thy mental, thy material, thy spiritual self."
"Let my life be so filled with the desire to be a channel of blessings to others that it may show forth the Lord of Lords, the King of Kings."
1722-1

Each soul enters with a mission. Then know that, as He has entrusted to mankind that of salvation through the hope and trust in Him, it behooves each individual - as the body so oft finds - to be up and doing that which the hands find to do. For, indeed, as it has been expressed, idle hands may oft become evil influences to others.
1662-2

Each soul enters for a purposefulness, that it may be a channel through which this universal consciousness - that is ever present, and being sought as it were by the inmost forces of the entity - may be seen, may find expression in the experience of the fellow man.
As in the studies of the entity it is seen that the soul of man is a mere speck in space, yet the soul - though indefinite - is that vital force or activity which is everlasting. Though the earth, though the stars, may pass away; though there may be changes in the universe as to the relative position, these are brought about by those combinations of that speck of human activity as relative TO the soul's expression in any sphere of experience.
This then is an experience for the entity in which there may be the application of self in its relationships to others, in giving expression of that which is its ideal, its standard; not for self but for that it, the entity, the soul, would worship in its Maker, its Creator.
It is not sufficient that there be a reverence but that - as is held as an active principle in the mental mind, the spiritual mind of the entity - such an ideal must be a practical experience of each and every soul. And this one experiences in that it prompts that entity, that soul, to apply in relationships to its fellow man.
1297-1

In the present from those activities we find, as indicated, while disappointments have arisen and do arise, the entity should hold to that as it practised, as it preached in counsel with those mothers, - as to the thought, - yea, of spiritual truth; as it counseled with those then, so may it in the present counsel with those who direct the flocks of Israel - or those that direct the flocks of those who are seekers after truth.
Thus the entity may again fill that longing, fill that purpose for which each soul enters a material experience, that it may be a channel through which its portions of the material earth may be bettered because of its having lived in same!
Then so live and so act that each individual, each day, each place in which ye find thyself, day by day, may be better for thy having passed that way!
Sow the seed of the Spirit. Be not overanxious about same. For the Father alone can and does bring such to fruition in His own way and manner.
And only the try, only the purpose, only the desire is necessary in thy individual activity.
1648-1

In giving the interpretations of the records as we find, these portions are chosen with the desire and hope that the experience may be a helpful influence in the activities of the entity in the present sojourn; that it may better fill that purpose for which each soul enters material experiences.
We each have our lessons to learn, our virtues to magnify, our faults to correct. There is a standard and an ideal by and through which each may gain a greater and better concept of these purposes. The pattern, to be sure, is within. The ideal is the law of the creative influences and forces as manifest in the experience of each and every entity.
There are then, to be sure, those influences that have been and are a portion of the entity's whole experience. The astrological aspects from the sojourns, also the numerological aspects, are all a part of the influences. Yet all of these are but urges, tendencies, trends; and are governed by what the entity chooses to do about same in relationships to its ideal - as chosen by and through influences, of course, within and without. Those within are then a part of that the entity has been.
1624-1

The information is of the self, it is self meeting self continuously. For Life is a continuous experience. And the mind, the soul, the will, are those influences that act through the material manifestation for the improvement, the development, or for the retardment to the whole of the experience.
For each soul enters each experience for a development, that it may be prepared to dwell with that it seeks as its goal.
Hence the necessity of each entity, each soul, setting its ideal in each experience.
1235-1

As each soul enters in the earth, there are purposes other than that which may be arising from desire of those that physically are responsible for such an advent.
For, the soul seeks from the realm of spirituality to give expression of that it as an entity or soul may do with its experiences in the mental realm, as well as about that it HAS done in a physical realm.
Hence the law that is ever present; like attracts like; like begets like. Hence there is the attraction as from the desires of those in the physical calling to the sources of generation in the flesh, to the sources of creation or of spirit in the spiritual realm.
Hence there is often a real purpose in the soul, as in this soul, seeking a period of expression of self; and finding it in that about the bodies when there is the period of presentation. For, while the physical begins at conception, the spiritual and mental is as the first breath taken into the physical - that becomes then a living soul, with a physical organism for manifestation during the sojourn in that particular experience.
Then, what influences such a journey, such an advent of the soul from the unseen into materiality? Development of the soul that it may take its place, through the lessons gained in physical experience, in those classes or realms of soul activity in an infinite world - among those that have passed in their activity through the various realms; seeking then (as that which first called every soul and body into experience) that of companionship. Hence we have as much hereditary and environmental forces in soul's experience (or the developed soul to such an experience) as we have in the law of the earth, as to that which is hereditary from the parentage of a body - and the environs of the body, as to what is the trend of thought.
Then, what is the environmental and hereditary influence from the soul-body angle for this particular entity shown here, and known as [541]?
The sojourns in the environs about the present sojourn, or in this particular solar system. Not that Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Uranus or any of the planets about this earth's sun have beings or bodies such as are known in the earth's sojourns; but those that are peculiar to their own realm - their own element or position from the solar light, or the light and heat. And yet with those influences about same by the variation in what is called in the earth the effect of the various influences shed from other solar systems, suns and so forth.
For, much might be given respecting those environs and as to how or why there have been and are accredited to the various planets certain characterizations that make for the attractions of souls' sojourns in that environ. But these are places of abode. As in the earth we find the elements are peopled, as the earth has its own moon or satellites enjoined in its environ, so is it with the other planets. The earth with its three-fourths water, with its elements, is peopled; yes. So are the various activities in other solar systems.
Hence the sojourn of a soul in its environ about the earth, or in this solar system, gives the factors that are often found in individuals in the earth that are of the same parentage, in the same environ; yet one might be a genius and the other a fool; one might be a moral degenerate and the other a high, upright, upstanding individual with an aptitude for influences that may not even be questioned.
Then, such environs PHYSICALLY are needed for the development of the soul.
So, the entity here finds these as attributes in the mental forces that lie - as it were - DORMANT or innate in each soul or body manifested in the earth, that may be DRAWN UPON when apparently everything else has failed. That stamina of character, that indwelling which is a portion of the soul. That which makes for the abilities of each soul to draw nigh unto him that IS light, life, and from or through that source build - in and under all circumstances - that which makes for beauty to any who may behold such a soul's activity; and most of all bring to the
soul harmony even under oppression or subjugation by circumstances of a material nature, and beauty and joy to those who may contact such an individual or soul. Becoming a light to many, a pathway that may guide many - even as this entity, this soul, through its indwelling in Jupiter; though given through material contacts much disorder from the material standpoint, many disturbing influences rather as things never known as to just where or when they would come about, yet the ability to hold to that hope - and this increased in the knowledge of Him
that is light - may bring yet joy and peace and harmony that makes for being content in that place one finds self, and knowing that He may have His way with thee. Making for the ability of great expansion of SUBJECTS; the ability to read and to comprehend much that is not seen by others who may be reading or studying in the same class or group. The natural abilities of a leader, yet the entity is often burdened by the fact that so many apparently are always depending upon what little resources the entity has from the material standpoint. The entity should declare in self those forces that are ever present, that the supply is of such a nature that it may never diminish as long as there is the holding to the power in His name.
541-1

For, know that in whatever position an entity, a soul finds itself, it is that the greater opportunity may be had for fulfilling the purposes for which each soul enters a material experience, - and that the greater opportunity arises from and through that condition, that experience.
In giving the interpretations, these are chosen with the desire that this experience may be a helpful one to the entity in its seeing itself, and in the desire that the entity analyze its purposes, its desires, as in relationships to its fellow man, that the experience may be filled with greater joy, greater harmony; and that the glory of that for which the entity enters may be made more and more a part of the experience. For the desire of the heart and the mind and the body should be, "Thy will, O Father; that Thy purposes may be fulfilled in me and my feeble efforts."
1582-2

In the mental influences and forces as we find, owing to the anxiousness regarding the financial status of self, of father and others associated, the anxieties are being allowed to so upset the body as to cause it to lose the proper perspective of the conditions as well as the manners in which they may be met.
Then, such information as may be given here may become to the entity as rather idealistic than practical.
But it is well for the entity to take cognizance of those immutable laws to which this entity is allied, as well as others; and to consider the choices made, as to how there is the attempt to hold to one thing and let the activities refute the very experiences and conditions it would claim, or does claim, as its own!
The material surroundings, the material environs should become rather the outcome of a mental and spiritual life so planned, so acted upon that these will be in keeping with that which makes for the greater development of the soul and spiritual forces in any experience.
And these are the purposes for which each soul enters an experience or sojourn as a whole.
As the entity is aware, from its own meditation, or forethought, conditions in which anyone finds self are not perchance but the result - combined result - of the activities of the entity in given directions as related to creative or spiritual forces within the entity's OWN realm of activity.
Thus an entity creates, as well as becomes a part of all that it is and has been.
And in meeting these, then, there must be an ideal to which one would adhere, and draw its conclusions or measurements from such as in relationship to its mental, material and spiritual affairs or associations.
This, first, precludes - and is self-evident - that an entity must FIRST be honest, fair with self. And, as has been given, when this is true, it will follow that the entity, the body will not be unfair to anyone.
The conditions that exist in the experience, then, as we find are as these:
There are SO MANY material problems - as has been indicated - that the entity allows self to be drawn away from the first principles; so that it is SELF that wants to do something! This rather indicates the selfish nature, that is innate in an entity.
While each soul, each associate, each acquaintance IS an obligation, a duty - all of these must cooperate, coordinate. As the body itself in its welfare, mentally or physically, unless it cooperates, coordinates each portion with the other, there is not the well-rounded, the well-balanced individual nor the better and best reactions from same.
There is the physical body, there is the mental body, there is the spiritual body. They are one. They each have their attributes. They each have their weaknesses. They each have their associations. Yet they must be all coordinated.
The spirit is the life. Then each phase of the experience of the entity must be of the spiritual import in its very nature, if it is to live, to be the fulfilling of its purpose - to bring peace and harmony, for which purpose it IS in existence! It must be constructive in the very nature and the very desires, without thought of self being the one glorified in or by same! Rather the GLORY is to the influence or force that PROMPTS same!
As is the experience of the entity: If even filial or marital or soul love seeks the exalting of self, then it is not fulfilling its purpose from the spiritual import. God is love! The influence or force that motivates the life of each soul is love! But it may be love of self, of fame, of fortune, of glory, of beauty, or of self-indulgence, self-aggrandizement, or the satisfaction to the ego!
These are the conditions that MUST be in EVERY phase of the experience analyzed.
There are abilities within the activities of the mental, the physical body of this entity; and these are to be used then in those directions in which the greater glory is given to that which is the ideal of the entity in its spiritual relationships to the creative forces from WITHIN!
Then, they are to be used in those manners and in those channels wherein the entity is a creative influence in the lives and the experiences of others, to create hope, to create faith, to create that which is constructive in every phase.
Thus, whether it brings material hardships, material problems or not, such an ideal is to be held to; and the problems will be dissipated by the very influence and force of the love and the desire that is PURPOSEFUL but SELFLESS in its nature, in its activity!
And when this is applied, when this is done, when the activities are in that direction, we will find the channels for the abilities - the connections, the associations - will be as it were creative in themselves. Not as show, but rather as that in which there may be the magnifying of brotherly love and hope and promise and faith in a CREATIVE force and influence!

For the astrological or the relative position of the earth (our immediate home) is not the center of the universe, is not the center of our thought; but the kingdom of the Father or the kingdom of Heaven is within! Why? Because our mind, the Son, is within us.
Then with that consciousness of His awareness, we may know even as He has given, "Ye abide in me, as I in the Father - I will come and abide with thee."
In that consciousness, then, the purposes for which each soul enters materiality are that it may become aware of its relationships to the Creative Forces or God; by the material manifestation of the things thought, said, DONE, in relation to its fellow man!
As the earth then occupies its three-dimensional phase of experience in our own solar system, and as each of those companions that are about the solar system represents as it were one of the phases of our conscience - the elements of our understanding - or our senses; then they each in their place, in their plane, bear a relationship to us, even as our desires for physical sustenance; that is: foods for the body; with all of the attributes, all of the abilities to take that we feed upon and turn it into elements for our body.
All of the elements are gathered from that upon which we have fed to build blood, bone, hair, nails; the sight, the hearing, the touching, the feelings, the expressions.
Why? Because these are QUICKENED by the presence of the spirit of the Creative force (within).
So our mind, with its attributes, gathers from that upon which we feed in our mental self; forming our concepts of our relationship with those things that are contrarywise to His biddings or in line with that Law which is all-inclusive; that is, the love of the Father, with our mind, our body, our soul, and our neighbor as self.
Then all of these influences astrological (as known or called) from without, bear witness - or ARE as innate influences upon our activity, our sojourn through any given experience. Not because we were born with the sun in this sign or that, nor because Jupiter or Mercury or Saturn or Uranus or Mars was rising or setting, but rather:
Because we were made for the purpose of being companions with Him, a little lower than the angels who behold His face ever yet as heirs, as joint heirs with Him who IS the Savior, the Way, then we have brought these about BECAUSE of our activities through our EXPERIENCES in those realms! Hence they bear witness by being IN certain positions - because of our activity, our sojourn in those environs, in relationships to the universal forces of activity.
Hence they bear witness of certain urges in us, not beyond our will but controlled by our will!
For as was given of old, there is each day set before us life and death, good and evil. We choose because of our natures. If our will were broken, if we were commanded to do this or that, or to become as an automaton, our individuality then would be lost and we would only be as in Him without conscience - CONSCIENCE - (consciousness) of being one with Him; with the abilities to choose for self!
For we CAN, as God, say Yea to this, Nay to that; we CAN order this or the other in our experience, by the very gifts that have been given or appointed unto our keeping. For we are indeed as laborers, co-laborers in the vineyard of the Lord - or of they that are fearful of His coming.
And we choose each day WHOM we will serve! And by the records in time and space, as we have moved through the realms of His kingdom, we have left our mark upon same.
Then they influence us, either directly or indirectly, in the manner as we have declared ourselves in favor of this or that influence in our material experience. And by the casting of our lot in this or that direction, we bring into our experience the influence in that manner.
1567-2

First: Know what is thy ideal - in material, in mental, in the spiritual; and know that they all must be one - that is, Mind is the Builder, as Christ is the Way.
Then, as thy imports and thy activities take on the giving to others of that within thine own experience of which ye have become convinced, ye become closer and closer to fulfilling the purposes for which each soul enters the material experience.
Study then to show thyself approved unto Him, one not afraid but giving thyself as He gave; that ye may know the truth and the truth WILL bring to thee that peace, that harmony which ye really knew in Samaria and Galilee.
In thy material activities - to write, to direct, to build these in the experiences of others is becoming to thee in this experience.
1552-1

In choosing that to be given from the records as we find them here, there are varied experiences or interpretations that might be indicated. These are chosen with the desire and purpose that this be a helpful experience for the entity; enabling it to understand and interpret in self much of the dreams or visions, and many of the things that have come to pass in the material manifestations that have been questions - that have brought sorrow and gladness; anxieties and assuredness.
For, all are a part of the material experience. For each soul enters material manifestations not by chance but purposefully; that the entity may indeed be a manifestation of that choice or ideal concerning spiritual laws, and the advent of Him who IS the way, the truth, the light.
Not that this interpretation would intend to intimate any dogma or tenets, but that which IS the ideal should be stressed; not as to a tenet but as a LIVING thing - known and interpreted in the life, in the associations with others, as such.
As to urges latent and manifested, - in materiality things ARE in relationships with others because of activities and choices of individuals. So thine own experience, thine own sphere of consciousness is stressed because of that thou hast chosen to do. For, as He gave, "I came not to take away the law, but to fulfill the same."
So in self, as He gave, thou shalt give an account unto thy God for the deeds done in the body. What body? That material, mental or spiritual body. All are one and are subject to their OWN urges. This has been the experience of the entity, as it has analyzed same in the material and mental life of self and those reliant upon the entity for directing the choice through formative years; as well as what the entity has done ABOUT the glorifying rather than the justifying, by and through faith in Him who is the way of life.
These urges are given that should be interpreted in the experience and expression:
Minimize the faults.
As ye would be forgiven, forgive others.
Magnify the virtues, for the Lord thy God is a jealous God. So in thy own experience a soft word turneth away wrath, grievous words stirreth up anger.
The sowing of the seed of the spirit bringeth peace. The sowing of the seed of strife bringeth contention.
The urges latent and manifested from the sojourns in other realms express themselves, then, in the dream, the vision, the hopes, the fears. Those manifested from the sojourns in materiality express themselves in relationships, in awareness, in consciousness, in the relationships through temporal things. All partake of the unison of truth in so far as they are CONSCIOUSLY a part of the entity.
1541-11

In giving that which we find may be helpful for the body in the present experiences, well that the body analyze for self that purpose for which each soul enters an experience: For the soul and mental development of same.
As the entity has applied itself in those things material and mental in that way and manner in which it has brought not only for self but for those whom the entity has contacted, that awareness of the spiritual influences that must DOMINATE the purposes, the aims and the desires, there has come in the experience of self that which has made for a life, an experience, that has been worth while; bringing with same those joys in the service of those influences that have prompted and do prompt the activities of the body.
True, there have been those material surroundings that have at times brought, and do in the present bring doubts and fears for the activities in the future. Not that it alone is the lot or the experience of all for such to arise. Yet the entity will and does experience that in so far and in that measure that those desires for the associations, relations in every sphere of activity, are such that there is brought for OTHERS that which will make for their experience that which has been found in the associations and experiences of self, there may come that which is not only satisfying to the desires of the body - the desires that make for the aggrandizement of self's own place, position, or power or might - but that which may and does make for the satisfying of the longings that come from deeper within; that there may be created in the inmost self of every soul those awarenesses of the continuity of life in EVERY sphere of experience. THESE will and DO bring those things, those experiences in the life of every soul that make for less and less fear of the future; greater joy, greater pleasure in the experiences of the daily life.
327-5

In choosing the interpretations of the records to be given here, this is done with the hope and desire that the entity may indeed apply that which has been given of old, "Know Thyself."
And in the analysis of this, and the seeking to apply that which is good, know that these are chosen from a standard - an ideal.
Know then that an ideal, physical, mental and spiritual, must be a part of the experience of each, if there would be a gaining, a developing, a fulfilling of the purposes for which each soul enters a material experience.
For there is the constant meeting of self in the varied experiences, and we are the result of all we have been in respect TO that which is the ideal, the way, the truth and the light.
It is only in the application of these, that are the fruits of the spirit, that each soul may indeed come to know that purpose for which it enters a given experience.
Then indeed in patience and in hope and in faith may one become aware of one's soul, - yea, one's relationships with the Creative Forces.
Also we come to understand that in materiality the only way of expressing or manifesting same is in the dealings with and the manners or attitudes of self towards others, in relationship to that which is our ideal.
The entity, as each entity, comes under the astrological aspects. These are rather sojourns, and hence become rather those influences from which the entity may draw. Just as an individual may in a material experience under such and such an environ come to think and act or deal with conditions in that same relationship as those about the entity, for the entity comes to hold the same as the ideal way and manner. Or it takes on, as it were, the habits, the activities in relationships to same and to conditions in the way and manner in which the mind (the builder) is allowed to be controlled, or trained, or directed.
So in giving the astrological aspects, know that these are urges - and environs under which these become as experiences for manifestations. For knowledge is power, but knowledge misapplied, knowledge misused, becomes rather deteriorating and detrimental than a helpful experience.
Thus there should or must be the ideal, and not merely the idealistic attitude but a CONSISTENCY towards those things of the mental and spiritual aspects of every individual's experience of life.
1500-3

Each soul enters an experience that it may become more and more at an at-oneness with that Creative Force. And if the love of the Father, as is manifested among the children of men, is held as the ideal, more and more will there grow into the experience of this entity that which is not MERELY gratifying but harmonious in EVERY relationship of its experience.
1468-1

Know that the purpose for which each soul enters a material experience is that it may be as a light unto others; not as one boastful of self or of self's abilities in any phase of the experience, whether mental or material, but living, being in spirit that which IS ideal and not idealistic alone, nor the unattainable.
For, as He hath given, - if ye would know the Spirit, or God, search for Him; for happy ye will find Him.
Thus, - in that consciousness of daily living and being that which is in keeping with the ideal, - life and its problems becomes not a burden, but opportunities - for the greater expressions and expansions of self in knowing that as ye sow daily the fruit of the spirit, ye need not worry nor fret thyself as to its growth. GOD giveth the increase. Hence be not weary in well-doing.
In the practical application, then, - this should be in any forms in which there is the physical activity that deals not merely with the vanity of the individual as to dress, but rather as in relationships with individuals or groups such that what ye would prepare for them brings to their awareness THAT FOR WHICH THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE GROUP STANDS - as a creative thing!
Giving that to others in such a measure makes for the awareness that the entity is ever being in that of a constructive attitude or activity.
In meeting the problems, if there is the air of appealing to vanity or the ego alone, it will and does become a burden; but if it is in that air, that manner in which it becomes as a creative influence in the experience of the entity, it is well.
641-6

Keep a normal appetite or activity. Expend the self in study, in meditation; not by force but by the OPENING of self to recognize that as goes on about self. In this manner:
Each day before retiring, make a resume - not just mentally but upon paper - of what have been the EXPERIENCES of the whole day. Make this not only a rule but a rule to do; not to be studied, not to be exploited or shown or given to others, but for self! And DO NOT read same after it is written for at least thirty days. And then note the difference in what you are thinking and what you are thinking about, what your desires are, what your experiences are!
And remember, do not condemn others, do not condemn self. But express desires, express wishes, express the kindnesses YOU have shown as well as the kindness others have shown. For know that the fruits of the Spirit bring to an altering and a changing body the fruits of the Spirit in measures that find expressions in the relationships to individuals.
Do not attempt to be good but rather good FOR SOMETHING! Know what is thy purpose, what is thy goal! And unless these are founded in constructive, spiritual construction, they will turn again upon thyself!
For each soul is meeting day by day SELF!
Hence as has been given, KNOW thyself, in WHOM thou believest! Not of earthly, not of material things, but mental and spiritual and WHY! And by keeping a record of self - not as a diary, but thy purposes, what you have thought, what you have desired, the good that you have done - we will find this will bring physical and mental reactions that will be in keeping with the purposes for which each soul enters a material manifestation.
830-3

And holding to those tenets of the Law of One, as to the fruits of the spirit, was the practice and the preaching of the entity - that is:
As ye would have another be, that be thyself.
Do not ask another to do that ye would not do thyself.
Make concessions only to the weak.
Defy the strong if they are in the wrong. These, as the entity experienced then, may be applied in the present if there is kept the self-analysis and the understanding as to the intent and purpose for which each soul enters an earth's experience for an activity.
For God is not mocked, and whatsoever a person soweth, that must he REAP!
Only in the fruits of the spirit - as of longsuffering and patience and mercy and brotherly love and kindness and gentleness - may the TRUE MEANING of life's experience and the purposes of life, and in the associations with others, be understood. And not as tenets but as practical application of same in thy daily life with thy daily experience with thy fellow man.
These make for that in the experience of each soul that makes life, with all of its uprisings and downsittings, worth while.
1336-1

For each soul enters the material plane for the manifesting of its individual application of an ideal in respect to the Creative Forces or Energies.
Each soul is then endowed by its Maker with that of choice, with that birthright.
And to live another's life, and to direct or counsel even - other than that which is in accord with that of choice, is to become rather a hindrance than an aid.
Hence the prayers of self, the counsel of self as respecting those things that are ideal in relationships to Creative Forces.
For there are no short cuts to knowledge, to wisdom, to understanding - these must be lived, must be experienced by each and every soul.
In counsel then, let thy yeas be yea and thy nays be nay.
The anxiety that has arisen in self has only unfit self, as well as oft brought confusion in the experience of the individual - the son; with the desire not to be averse to filling the requirements for the peace, the harmony - yet these bring oft to the entity confusions.
Rather then let that counsel be as given, in purpose, in sincerity. Insist that this be held as the ideal: SINCERITY in every activity, in every relationship. And whatever may be undertaken, do with all thy might, with an eye single to service to a LIVING God that may NOT in ANY manner be set aside.
For it is in Him that each soul lives, moves and has its being. And while a man may defy the laws of nature, defy even the laws of his Creator, he must pay and Pay and PAY!
For His purposes will not be defeated among His children.
And each soul must give an ACCOUNT of the deeds, of the purposes done in the body!
Hence in being sincere, in being in a purposefulness, in an unselfishness for both the mother, the son, shall be the attitude, the directing force. For these are well-pleasing in those influences that make for constructiveness in the experience of one soul with another.
And though our physical relationships may oft have the experiences or appearances of the desires for a MATERIAL advantage, for a material success - unless the soul and the real desire is founded in patience, longsuffering, gentleness, kindness - and most of all SINCERITY - we become stumblingblocks to others.
830-2

Each soul enters each experience for a development, that it may be prepared to dwell with that it seeks as its goal.
Hence the necessity of each entity, each soul, setting its ideal in each experience.
Hence we find in the developments through those activities of an entity in a material sojourn or through an astrological experience are but the evolution, or making practical. For it is not what an individual or an entity may proclaim that counts, but what each soul, each entity, each individual, does about that it has set as its ideal in relationships to its activities to and through the individuals about same.
Hence we find those necessities for a development in the experiences of this entity; for there are the tendencies not only to be stubborn and hardheaded but to be inquisitive without consideration of what the end thereof may be.
Not that there should be an old man head upon a young man's shoulders, but that the training, that the environ, the surroundings for this entity should be made such that these tendencies, these inclinations are not exactly curbed but directed aright; else we may find those experiences when an unruly temper, too great a seeking for a thrill may become a detrimental influence in the experience.
For where there is a will of its own - which makes for what may be termed in material affairs as a strong will, strong mind, or one headstrong - there are abilities. The greater the abilities, the greater the responsibilities to each soul; and especially to those who may have charge, may have care, may have the opportunity of directing such a soul in its GAINING that as an ideal that is worthy of the abilities of such an entity.
1235-1

Each soul enters into material understanding that the soul may be more and more aware of the first cause, the SPIRIT of the Maker being manifest in thee.
There come periods in thine experience when doubts arise as to that which brings material success in thine experience, and thou seest about thee those that disregard law, order, or even the rights of their fellow man - yet from the material angle they APPEAR to succeed in gaining more of this world's goods. And they are apparently entrusted with the activities even among their fellow man that will have to do with the lives and activities of many souls. Then thou, in thine ignorance, proclaim: "What is the use of trying to be good? What is the use of
setting a high moral or mental or spiritual standard, when such succeed in entering into the joys of the earth?" They indeed, my son, have their reward in that single experience. But hast thou looked into their hearts and seen the trouble and doubt there? Hast thou looked into their lives, in their associations with themselves, and seen the fear, the doubt, the shame even often that crouches there? Rather, my son, live each day, each hour, each association, in such a way and manner that thou canst EVER look upon the activities of that day and feel not ashamed to present them to thy Maker!
For, life and consciousness is eternal, as the sun above thee, as the hills that bring to all men the wherewithal of their own making.
And thou will not, then, feel or have that inmost envy or doubt. Know that they that sow must reap that they have sown. For, in their own selves must come the fruit of that they have watered and planted, whether in material, spiritual or mental things. For, true is it indeed that as a man thinketh in his heart so do the fruits of his dealings with his fellow man show forth what have been the thoughts of the soul of that man.
This is not merely something for an idealist to hold, or one that is in the throes of despair in regard to self or others, but is a living, practical thing in thine experience.
When thou speakest kindly and gently to thine associates, to thine own house, to thine own neighbors, dost thou not find that thy heart and soul sings for joy because of that thou hast made in the experience of those to whom thou hast spoken even though there arise turmoils in the secular things of life?
So is life. So is thine soul growing to the fruition of those good things that may come in thine experience by the application of such tenets, experiences and activities in thine own life.
Be ye not weary in well-doing. He that endureth unto the end will wear the crown of joy, of life, of a contented soul.
Look into the hearts of those that apparently are successful in material things, and unless such successes are founded in the spirit of justice, mercy, love and long-suffering and brotherly kindness, they must fade and fall away. Yet, if they are builded in these things that are the fruits of the spirit, they will grow and blossom as the Rose of Sharon; and ever will thyself in the spirit of thy angel that stands before His face find PLEASURE and grace and mercy in the eyes and heart of thine Maker.
DO these things; LIVE these things, that contentment may come; not being satisfied, no - but grow in these things. For, as ye nourish and cherish these things in thy dealings with thy associates, thy fellow man, faint not because thou dost feel at times that thou art not appreciated for thine efforts among thy associates or friends; but rather let those things that would make doubts or misunderstandings give place to love. Then thou shalt find in thine experience in life that this world's goods, whether little or much, are replaced with that in self and with that which is said concerning thee - that cannot be bought with money, fame, position, or with powers that make men afraid.
531-3

For each soul enters an earthly experience with problems within its own experience, as well as for relationships that are to be met in the light of constructive influences.
For while there is prepared in the experience of each individual the ways and means through which the soul may attain its understanding, and there is the advocate with the Father through the Son, each soul - as the Son manifested in the flesh - meets those experiences.
For if ye would be like Him, put on Him, that He may stand with thee in those periods when doubt or fear arises, or when those influences arise from the very association of spirit with matter - that becomes the experience of each soul.
For it is the soul that seeks its companionship with its Maker, and in the flesh finds means of expressions that make forever true that as He has given "As ye do it unto these, the least of these my children, ye do it unto me."
So in the experiences of each soul, not only are they to become opportunities for self-expression but that others - too - through the experiences of their association - may bring into their own experience their relationships as one to another.
1211-1

For each soul enters each experience for the needs, the preparations, for a greater expression of His love.
For if ye would be like Him, if ye would know Him, ye must ENDURE, ye must make SURE, ye must manifest not only those influences that are as natures in thine development but PATIENCE, even with those that would despitefully use thee.
1158-2

For each soul enters the material experience with opportunities in the abilities that have been attained or acquired as a part of the individuality and personality of the entity. Each soul-entity enters with that hope of preparing itself for closer or greater communion with its first cause or first purpose. For each soul is in the image of the Creator. And as it is in purpose spirit, it seeks to magnify or manifest the spirit of the Creator. Hence as implied, God is spirit and seeks such to worship Him.
3420-1

As each soul enters in the earth, there are purposes other than that which may be arising from desire of those that physically are responsible for such an advent.
For, the soul seeks from the realm of spirituality to give expression of that it as an entity or soul may do with its experiences in the mental realm, as well as about that it HAS done in a physical realm.
Hence the law that is ever present; like attracts like; like begets like. Hence there is the attraction as from the desires of those in the physical calling to the sources of generation in the flesh, to the sources of creation or of spirit in the spiritual realm.
Hence there is often a real purpose in the soul, as in this soul, seeking a period of expression of self; and finding it in that about the bodies when there is the period of presentation. For, while the physical begins at conception, the spiritual and mental is as the first breath taken into the physical - that becomes then a living soul, with a physical organism for manifestation during the sojourn in that particular experience.
Then, what influences such a journey, such an advent of the soul from the unseen into materiality? Development of the soul that it may take its place, through the lessons gained in physical experience, in those classes or realms of soul activity in an infinite world - among those that have passed in their activity through the various realms; seeking then (as that which first called every soul and body into experience) that of companionship. Hence we have as much hereditary and environmental forces in soul's experience (or the developed soul to such an experience) as we have in the law of the earth, as to that which is hereditary from the parentage of a body - and the environs of the body, as to what is the trend of thought.
Then, what is the environmental and hereditary influence from the soul-body angle for this particular entity shown here, and known as [541]?
The sojourns in the environs about the present sojourn, or in this particular solar system. Not that Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Uranus or any of the planets about this earth's sun have beings or bodies such as are known in the earth's sojourns; but those that are peculiar to their own realm - their own element or position from the solar light, or the light and heat. And yet with those influences about same by the variation in what is called in the earth the effect of the various influences shed from other solar systems, suns and so forth.
For, much might be given respecting those environs and as to how or why there have been and are accredited to the various planets certain characterizations that make for the attractions of souls' sojourns in that environ. But these are places of abode. As in the earth we find the elements are peopled, as the earth has its own moon or satellites enjoined in its environ, so is it with the other planets. The earth with its three-fourths water, with its elements, is peopled; yes. So are the various activities in other solar systems.
Hence the sojourn of a soul in its environ about the earth, or in this solar system, gives the factors that are often found in individuals in the earth that are of the same parentage, in the same environ; yet one might be a genius and the other a fool; one might be a moral degenerate and the other a high, upright, upstanding individual with an aptitude for influences that may not even be questioned.
Then, such environs PHYSICALLY are needed for the development of the soul.
So, the entity here finds these as attributes in the mental forces that lie - as it were - DORMANT or innate in each soul or body manifested in the earth, that may be DRAWN UPON when apparently everything else has failed. That stamina of character, that indwelling which is a portion of the soul. That which makes for the abilities of each soul to draw nigh unto him that IS light, life, and from or through that source build - in and under all circumstances - that which makes for beauty to any who may behold such a soul's activity; and most of all bring to the soul harmony even under oppression or subjugation by circumstances of a material nature, and beauty and joy to those who may contact such an individual or soul. Becoming a light to many, a pathway that may guide many - even as this entity, this soul, through its indwelling in Jupiter; though given through material contacts much disorder from the material standpoint, many disturbing influences rather as things never known as to just where or when they would come about, yet the ability to hold to that hope - and this increased in the knowledge of Him that is light - may bring yet joy and peace and harmony that makes for being content in that place one finds self, and knowing that He may have His way with thee. Making for the ability of great expansion of SUBJECTS; the ability to read and to comprehend much that is not seen by others who may be reading or studying in the same class or group. The natural abilities of a leader, yet the entity is often burdened by the fact that so many apparently are always depending upon what little resources the entity has from the material standpoint. The entity should declare in self those forces that are ever present, that the supply is of such a nature that it may never diminish as long as there is the holding to the power in His name.
541-1

For, it is for soul development that each soul enters an experience, taking on a material body endowed with the attributes of materiality through the influence of the forces or laws that bring into being those conditions in the experience of a soul. Hence the entity in entering in the present finds many conflicting experiences with the soul, the material, even the mental or innate urges, as well as the sojourns in those environs about the earth that have their own peculiar vibrations from their associations or activities in this realm of activity; thus making for, to the soul, in any environ, the innate urges that arise as they are awakened in the experience. Hence those influences that we find in the Jupiterian experience make for the vastness of scope, of activity, in the mental and soul experience of the entity; making for those associations in places and positions in the earth, as related to those that deal with the groups; whether in the economic conditions, the social, the political influences and power; those in office by choice or by preference through the application of their own will forces have been and are a portion of the entity's experience. These applied in the experience in any sojourn, or in this, in such measures that are in keeping with that which is set as the universal law as related to the divine that is a manifestation within the experience and the birthright of each soul, whether into the earth or out of the earth, will bring their own reward. As ye do it unto the least of those in thine experience, whether in this, that or the other environ, ye do it unto the living force or the Creative Energies known as the guards, or God, in the universal influence.
708-1

Each soul enters an experience for that purpose of an expression of that gained either in the ascendancy or in lessons to be learned that there may be with the soul itself that experience such as to make the soul one with, and an expression of, that Creative Force which manifests itself in a material experience.
Oft do there come confusions to an entity, a soul, through the entanglements of self-expression rather than that entity, that soul, being a channel for the manifestation and the expression of that such a soul has gained in its experiences in material or in matter.
Hence when these confusions arise, there may be an entering into the holy of holies within the self, where the promise has been ever that there thy Lord may meet thee and be that guide, that guard to that inner self for the greater blessings not only for self but that of which the entity, the soul, is the expression - and gives forth in its contact daily a manifestation of that it, the soul, feels, desires, makes as the expression of that it, that entity, that soul, has gained.
It is not as to how much knowledge one has that counts, nor as to how much understanding even; though if there is had the correct understanding it, the entity, knows, feels, gives that expression of same. And it is what the entity does ABOUT that it knows that counts, not what it knows. For the entity-soul's growth is ever from within. It is not as to what others may think, as to what others may do. But let thy desire, thy will, ever be: "Others may do as they may, but for me and my house, my body (of clay) we will serve the living God."

Know that while there may be discouragements, periods of anxiety, the very fact that ye are conscious of being in the earth life is an indication that ye are in the thought and in the mind of the Creative Forces. Thus ye are given the opportunity to meet thyself. Hence through thy own activities, in the relationships that ye bear to thy fellow man, to things and conditions, ye are to fulfill the purpose for which each soul enters the earth - which is to manifest to the glory of God and to the honor of self.
Thus ye may find the source of thy understanding only in Him, who gives life, light and immortality. As He has promised, though ye may feel that ye are far away, "If ye call, I will hear - and answer speedily."
Thus do the first things first. Seek ye to know the Lord while He may be found, and let that direction ye take from day to day be in that way of doing His biddings.
For, ye grow - by application - in knowledge, in understanding, in thy relationships to thy Maker. As He has given, the measure of thy faith is the manner in which ye treat thy fellow man.
There are urges latent and manifested in thy experience. These arise from what ye as an individual entity have done about the purposes of materialization in the material world. For, as has been given, as ye sow, so shall ye reap - and ye must meet that ye measure out to others.
Then, - not that thou art lacking in abilities; not that thou art lacking in thy purposes. But make them, thy purposes, thy abilities, as means, manners channels through which ye may glorify thy Maker.
In varying manners these urges appear in the earth associations to give a consciousness to an entity, - as in place or environ, or the manner of application of the mental self. For, ever in the flesh and in the spirit, MIND is the builder. Thus, as the self has applied self, so are the patterns of thy life cut. These apply, then, in the emotions of the entity as a whole, finding expression physically through what we call the sensory perceptions - that ye like to see, to hear, to give voice to, - the activities of the mind force as related to material manifestations.
The interims between earthly expressions are indicated. To the entity here, the expression has been in those environs or consciousnesses or dimensions, through those periods; yet remaining within the same active force or the universe - or the earth and the sun, the moon and the planets about the earth. For these, by their relative relationships, are in themselves manifestations of the universal consciousness.
Then ye ask, what is man that the Maker should be mindful of him? For ye, as His offspring, are as corpuscles in the body of God. Thus as indicated for thee, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Uranus are the consciousness that have been within thine impelling forces through sojourns in this particular sphere of activity.

In analyzing the records as we find them here, there are many possibilities and probabilities within the realm of this entity's activities.
Then, as to whether there is the development or retarding of the soul-entity, is dependent upon the manner in which the abilities of the entity are exercised or used.
Not all that is considered by some as material success is soul success. Not all that is soul development, as considered in other spheres, is considered material success.
For each soul enters the material experience with opportunities in the abilities that have been attained or acquired as a part of the individuality and personality of the entity. Each soul-entity enters with that hope of preparing itself for closer or greater communion with its first cause or first purpose. For each soul is in the image of the Creator. And as it is in purpose spirit, it seeks to magnify or manifest the spirit of the Creator. Hence as implied, God is spirit and seeks such to worship Him.
Thus in giving that as we find concerning this entity, these records we choose with the desire and hope and purpose that his information may be a helpful experience for the entity; enabling the entity to better fulfill those purposes for which the soul entered. There is ever set before this entity daily (as each entity), good and evil, life and death. Life is growth. Death is as that separation or turning about, turning away from, or the opposite of growth. Hence the entity has in itself WILL, that knowledge, that understanding, with which the entity exercises its choice, to which it adds either for the satisfying or gratifying of self's emotions or self's desires, or for the magnifying and glorifying of the spiritual sources or help.
These may be one, if the entity makes the hope, the desire of the body, the mind, the soul, in accord. Yet the soul ever seeks to magnify or glorify the divine. Hence the constant warring that one finds in its members - body, mind, soul. These are as the real of the shadows of appetites, of desires, of those things that are habits of body and that take hold as a habit. Yet who ever saw a habit? For it is a mental thing and is personal. Its individuality may be of the creative forces or of the destructive forces.
3420-1

For, each soul, each entity, has within its inner being the sum of what it has done, is doing,
about its relationships to the whole.
2163-1


Each soul enters the earth to meet its own self, in its own shortcomings.
Yet there is an advocate with Creative Forces, with God; in Jesus, the Christ,
who has set the example of every nature - and He has set the example of freedom of speech,
freedom of activity; yet bound within that which is ever constructive.
He has not given freedom that is licentious, or freedom that is self-indulgent,
or freedom that does not consider the needs, the desires, the positions of others.
But in the example as is set in Him each soul may find that stimulation for activities
in material associations with others to see not the sordid things of an experience,
not grudges, faultfindings, but rather those that are set as He hath given -
"In patience become ye aware of your souls."
Hence He meets with those who give of themselves for a material service in that in which they themselves
may find the greater heights of beauty - as in song, in music, and the activities in such.
He meets them in those very influences - as has been given by Him, as to whom He gave the keys
- longsuffering, self-abasement, humbleness, patience.
These be those things in which or against which there is no law, but they are the fruits of the spirit.
Then live them day by day in thy associations with not only thy companions and thy friends,
but with thy foes and with those who even speak despitefully of thee - for they spoke thus of Him.
Then, if ye will keep those things that have been committed unto thee, the love of the Father
as is shown in the Son, and apply same in those fields in which thy mind, thy activity may find
a more beautiful expression - in the fields of music, as the pianist or the organist
(but these for service to Him, for the praise, for the glory, for the honor of Him)
- ye will find the greater source of happiness, the greater field of expression,
the greater means of building that in the experience of self
which will bring to THEE peace, harmony, freedom in Him, and glory in thy service
to thy fellow men and to thy Maker - through Him!
1352-4

Causes in the spiritual and the mental phases of an individual experience.
Hence there are laws immutable, unchanging.
These are of spiritual import, yet are applicable in the experience of each entity in its dealings with its fellow man.
That ye sow, that ye reap.
As ye do unto thy fellow man, even the lowest in thine estimation, so ye do unto thy Maker.

For the imprint, the soul, the spirit of each entity is a part of that great whole, that "I AM"
by which the individual ego would seek to pattern itself.
Hence there must be in the experience of each entity an IDEAL:
not merely ideas but an ideal of a spiritual import;
and that ideal ye may find, ye will find, within thine inner self - as is shown in Him who is the way, the truth and the light.
The image of Him is within thine own self, if ye will but open thy heart, thy mind, thy conscience
to the indwelling of that force, of that promise which is thine own - if ye will but embrace same.
In those abilities of thy mental and material self, then, pattern same after His manner of expressing same
before His fellow man. For ye are indeed the fellow traveler with Him.
1796-1

 
It is not purposeless that each soul enters an experience.
Neither is it purposeless for those with whom circumstance or purpose has drawn the individual.
There are definite objects, definite conditions, definite experiences wherein they each then may be a help one to the other.
And these manners for helping should be sought upon the grounds of the spiritual import, and not in the thought of the self
in ANY phase or direction.
2054-2

Know that He will not tempt thee beyond that ye are able to withstand.
Those whom He loveth He chasteneth everyone that ye may indeed bear more fruit to the glory of God,
not to self but for the filling of the purpose for which each soul enters this material sojourn.
Then keep the faith in Him. Add to thy patience virtue in all things, kindness, brotherly love, longsuffering.
Keep it in Him and He will strengthen thee day by day and give thee o that power which
will make thee sure in thyself and of thy trust in the Lord. With this patience and
longsuffering ye may indeed shed sufficient of the light of His love and those
problems that are wearying thy body and soul, and yet that ye have accepted
and do accept as thy part in this experience.
Thus we will find out that these become a part of thy own understanding,
and as to how and why there are those periods at times when the lot seems most too heavy to bear.
But in Him there is strength, there is might, there is power.
For the earth is indeed the Lord's, and the fullness thereof the silver and the gold.
And those who would be the greatest are indeed helpers, servants of all.
3216-1

Each soul enters for a definite purpose is apparent,
when one analyzes self and realizes what is its ideal,
AND what are the hopes and the characteristics of the self in relationship to its own philosophy of life.
That urges arise is also indicted as a truth.
For, environ and preparation and application all have their part in the experience of an entity.
Thus those channels through which these urges arise, as combined with the manner in which
the applications of the virtues may be magnified and the faults minimized in the present,
to enable an entity to fulfil the purposes for which it entered this experience.
As to the sojourns in the earth, - these become as environs, or applicable through the emotions of the body,
or the manner in which the individual thinks or analyzes those conditions that become part of the experience
in its dealings with things, conditions and people.
Then the interims between the earthly sojourns are as periods of assimilation, and
- as accounted by certain elements or influences from their position, in the immediate universe
- indicate the spiritual or the latent qualities, or the dreams of an entity.
These also have their place in the manner in which an entity responds
to urges that become manifested in the experience from its sense emotion.
That to which an entity has attained, then, or that it has accomplished,
becomes then as the body, the pattern with which the soul, the entity,
presents itself to the sources of its being.
2615-1

While it is not all of life to live, each soul enters for a purpose.
And it is not merely to gain fame or fortune, nor to be thought well of in the material plane only;
but it is a real spiritual and mental experience also.
2573-1

Each soul enters not by mere chance but to but to fulfil as orderly a development
as is manifested in all of nature's growth; and to fill that promise, that purpose from the divine,
- He hath not willed that a soul should perish, but hath with every temptation provided a means of escape.
For, He has no pleasure in death, nor in sin, but loves those who repent and who use or apply themselves
in the material associations with others as to be a helpful, constructive experience for themselves,
and in the hopes, the aspirations of others.
Not all is beautiful in this record, not all is evil;
but the evil may be minimized in the experience of the entity,
- and the hope, the faith, the grace and mercy may be magnified as virtues,
- if a spiritual ideal is set for and by the entity.
Oft, - yea, too long, - the entity has put off the seeking or determining of the ideal in its spiritual and mental life.
Too OFT the entity has found a HOPED for ideal in material things.
Thus we find there have been periods in which confusions have arisen,
- and yet latently there is that desire, that belief in, that hope for, spiritual awakening.
Yet the entity finds that the gratifying of the material desire of the own self is so overwhelming,
and at times so easily obtained, that at times the spiritual nature is lost sight of.
As to the urges which arise latently and manifestedly, - these phases are chosen as a means
of identifying to the entity those latent abilities, those manifested urges that arise and that have arisen in the experience.
These are pointed out, or chosen to be given here, that the entity may find something that answers to that deeper holiness
and reverence for same that is latent within the experience of this entity.
Not that the entity is to become a recluse of ANY nature.
Not that the entity is to become sober and soured, or a CONDEMNER of others.
For, if ye would not be condemned, condemn not others.
And thou knowest thine own shortcomings at times all too well!
Then, as to the sojourns astrologically, or during the interims between the manifestations in the earth,
- we find that these for the entity at times have been quite far apart.
Hence we have a complex nature; at times easy to approach, at others quite distant
(and this oft is an experience the entity assumes, for the very nature deep within is to be friendly, sociable, likeable;
yet, on account of ideas - material - these are smothered under not altogether pretense,
but that the entity innately expects others WOULD think or feel towards the activities as the entity in reality feels).
Astrologically we find expressions through the deeper emotions of the body,
- as in dreams or visions. These once found real expression in the entity's experience,
but have through circumstance, through choice by the entity, become submerged;
by the not making of same manifest, and for fear of what others might say.
And at times deep within the entity feels as if it had lost hold of something very near,
very dear to the entity's purposes and ideals.
These are the warnings that have just been indicated.
KNOW, and find, that spiritual-mental ideal, as WELL as the mental-material ideal!
For, that which is lasting, that which brings peace, that which makes for contentment,
that which is fully as an assurance, comes only from that as may be interpreted as spiritual force,
or the life of purposes and desires as may manifest in an individual entity, soul or body.
2416-1

Each soul enters with a purpose - and it is not by mere chance that this or that experience comes
in the activities of the individual.
For, God is not mocked, and whatsoever a soul soweth, that must it reap;
and He is not short in meting out to individuals those opportunities.
For, He hath not willed that any soul should perish, but hath with every temptation given a way,
if the soul will rely upon Him.
For He is the strength, the power, and a very present help in trouble.
Forget not, then, to seek first HIS ways, and all that is necessary,
all that will bring into the experience the opportunities for the greater expression
towards fulfilling that for which a soul enters, will be the experience here and now.
In those influences in the activities of an entity, two - yea, three influences become
the channels through which urges arise in the experiences of an individual entity:
the environs in a material manifestation, the earthly sojourns, and the sojourns in the astrological aspects during
the interims between activities in the material plane.
Thus we find each, as body, mind, soul, making for those urges that arise that are latent or manifested
in the experience of an entity.
The mental, or mind, is the way; as in spiritual aspects we find Father, Son and Holy Spirit
as the three phases; the Mind, the Son, the Way.
For this entity, then, we find these as astrological aspects; not because the sun, the moon, stars or planets
were in this or that position at the time of birth, but rather because of what the individual entity has done
about its opportunities it has brought into materialization the activities in this present experience.
2403-1

 
For, each soul enters not by chance but according to those purposes for which the Creative Forces gave individuality
to each soul; that it might manifest in such a manner as to be a living experience manifesting that purpose in the material world.
That each entity enters at some given period or time is again not chance, but because of the manner
of the union of purpose which gives an opportunity for expression of a soul through a given period of activity.
Thus each soul realizes, should realize, that each manifestation, each expression,
is an opportunity that the individual entity may be a living example,
known and seen of those whom the entity may meet, of the fact that God IS.
Those who so live in their associations with others as to make others more aware of Him
in their consciousness day by day are fulfilling the purpose for which an individual experience is given.
The astrological aspects have meant little to the entity,
and there may only be given the indications as to their influence in the material experience.
Not that they form that which will be, or has to come to pass.
For, the real birthright of an individual entity is the will.
No urge, then, no circumstance, no condition surpasses the will of an entity.
Thus the astrological aspects or urges received, that find expression in the emotional natures
 or consciousnesses of the body, are dependent upon what and how the will of the entity is applied,
- according to that the entity has held and does hold as its ideal.
