Why 2 Editions of the Grail Message?

The following article is reprinted from
http://www.gralencyklopedia.sk/index.php/en/two-editions
because it offers the best explanation concerning this profound, critical issue. However, we are in no way affiliated with this website or its author.
 

Many a reader of The Grail Message has heard or read about it. The existence of two versions and editions of the book In the Light of Truth – The Grail Message is now a commonly known secret. Abdruschin published the book In the Light of Truth – The Grail Message during his life in 1931 as a finished and consistent work. Information and statements emerged in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s that Abdruschin reworked His main work In the Light of Truth – The Grail Message at the end of his life and determined the reworked edition as the only valid version for dissemination. This statement came from Mrs. Maria, the second wife of Abdruschin, the head and founder of the Grail Movement. Mrs. Maria founded the organization the Grail Movement and under the auspices of her copyright to the new edition, she began to disseminate this new "green", reworked 3-volume edition, the so called edition of "the last hand", through the Grail Message Foundation based in Stuttgart. However, there were voices and doubts already during Mrs. Maria's life about whether Abdruschin really had reworked His main work just before his death. To this conclusion led the very words of Abdruschin that the Message of the Grail given to humanity in 1931 must remain unchanged, while it was taken into account that Abdruschin as the God-Envoy would never contradict Himself and would not deny His words and deeds that were already done once in the past. The alterations in the reworked edition come across as very controversial, since, compared to the original, essential lectures, individual words and passages were omitted, and the composition of the book is completely reworked and the order of the lectures rearranged. Abdruschin’s direct statements were left out that referred to the fact that He wrote the book as the Son of Man. Abdruschin's clear declaration at the end of the book that He is the God-Envoy, Imanuel, the Son of Man, this declaration that also confirmed the origin of the book was completely left out. Could Abdruschin deny Himself and remove the seal from His book, which gave the reader confidence about who the author of the Message of the Grail was? Many a reader who could read the original 1931edition of The Grail Message asked himself this question.

Abdruschin encourages us to examine and recognize the truth. This surely holds true in a much greater extent in the case of the Word of God, which should in our lives be the only indicator of the Truth. It is therefore appropriate that every reader and cross-bearer should occupy himself with the issue of the reworking of such an important work as The Grail Message brought by the God-Envoy, Imanuel, the Son of Man.

We must ask ourselves and answer some fundamental questions:

  • Question no.1 – What did Abdruschin write in The Grail Message about the unchangeability of the 1931 edition?
  • Question no.2 – Was there some change because of which The Grail Message had to be reworked and the words of Abdruschin, already uttered, denied?
  • Question no.3 – Can the God-Envoy contradict Himself and act against positions which He already expressed?
  • Question no.4 – Did Abdruschin deny His Divine origin?
  • Question no.5 – What is more important: the words Abdruschin spoke during His life or a statement about the reworking, which emerged only after His death?

Question no.1

What did Abdruschin write in The Grail Message about the unchangeability of the 1931 edition?

Let us see what Abdruschin wrote in His The Grail Message.

“You must therefore first completely grasp The Message within yourselves before you can proclaim It to others! And if you want to transmit The Word, then do so in the form as I have given It to you! Let my Will remain therein as It is, and do not place your will along with It in the same words. –

This again requires that you precisely know my Will! When proclaiming my Message you must quite exactly follow the structure in the manner that I have given it to you! Therein lies a precisely deliberate, wise guidance for the human souls who long for Light.”

...

“Do not also mix anything from the lectures of the present time with the contents from the beginning of The Message; for they cannot be united, because they must follow one after the other, in order to produce the steps for the correct understanding. There is a continuous maturing unconditionally demanded in the sequence determined by me; for I begin with the early stages of the hitherto understanding and gradually increase the Knowledge such that a human spirit can follow me therein. Then I draw apart ever further the parts of Creation, separate much that has hitherto still remained under one collective expression into new parts which I had not yet mentioned beforehand.”

...

“Bound in the structure of my Message is the secret of All-Wisdom, which knows the human spirits and also their abilities better than you human beings do. And to this Wisdom you must in all cases submit yourselves, otherwise you will never attain what you are striving towards!

I do not transmit The Message to you so that you can proceed according to your discretion when passing It on to mankind, but I require that It remain immutable in everything It contains and how It is! Whoever wants to change just the slightest sense, the smallest word, even if in the best volition, makes himself guilty! It is The Holy Word of God, which the human being may not touch in order to perhaps adapt It more comfortably for himself, or also so that the indolent human spirits can understand It more easily!

The structure has to remain as I have given It to you. And whoever seeks to undermine It must be excluded from the Grace of extending It to others. Enough has already been transgressed in this regard with Jesus’ Word, where human sagacity wanted to do the sorting only because this sagacity did not understand It, and because so much appeared inconvenient for earthly realisation. One would much rather allow what is earthly to prevail and distort The Word so that no accord would be found with the human way of thinking.”

In its construction The Message offers the human soul a continuous upward progression until its supreme completion! Pay attention to this, never delude yourselves into deviating from it."

...

“Do not treat The Holy Word as has hitherto been customary in temples and churches. Do not alternatingly take parts out of the middle, the beginning or end, in order to then discuss them with illustration and explanation, but therein always only go forth the one firm way, which I have given to you in the structure. The Word should not be adjusted in accordance with human beings, but all human beings to The Word! For The Word is, the human beings, however, are still only yet to be.

This time, the human being has to draw near to The Word, not The Word to the individual human beings.”

From the lecture “I send you!” in the Echoes to The Grail Message

“The present and subsequent lectures are an expansion of The Message! Whoever wants to understand them must also know The Message. It is one whole, which also must be kept to in the fixed sequence if there is to develop a proper Knowledge. Not one passage can be avoided thereby. And for a Knowledge of Creation, this is not too much to demand. He for whom this is too much will never be able to cope with it. Yet without such a Knowledge, there is no ascent anymore and also no sojourning any longer; for the time of being able to exist in ignorance about this is past. God, your Lord and Creator, now demands this of you! Whoever turns back from this, God will turn back from him! And without God’ Grace the human being cannot exist. No choice is left for you at all if you want to exist any further, for God now places His conditions before the creatures!”

From the lecture “Distorted souls” in the Echoes to The Grail Message

“And if the entire world had continuously inundated me with mockery and scorn, and if even all had turned away from me with doubt, I would still have spoken just as I have done, without leaving out a word; for in the Words lay Holy Fulfilments!”

From the lecture “New Year 1935” in the Echoes to The Grail Message

"Then they will recognize the richness of my Message, from which no word will be changed, but It is and remains as It has now been given by me."

From the lecture “And when humanity asks…” in the Echoes to The Grail Message

It clearly follows from these words that Abdruschin was of a mind during His life and during His writing these lines that His work In the Light of Truth – the Message of the Grail is definitely set and that nothing is to be changed about it. There is a declaration at the end of the original edition that Abdruschin has completed the Message of the Grail and Imanuel arose in Him. Hence, the 1931 Message of the Grail was sealed by Imanuel Himself, the Holy Spirit, who is the immutable perfect Law of God.

Question no.2

Was there some change because of which The Grail Message had to be reworked and the words of Abdruschin, already uttered, denied?

The management of the Grail Movement which defends the existence of the reworked green edition, the so called edition of “the last hand”, gives as the reason of the reworking the failure of humanity and claims therefore that a new, reworked edition from Abdruschin was necessary for a better understanding. This argument, however, contradicts the already written Abdruschin’s words:

“The Word should not be adjusted in accordance with human beings, but all human beings to The Word! For The Word is, the human beings, however, are still only yet to be.

This time, the human being has to draw near to The Word, not The Word to the individual human beings.”

From the lecture “I send you!” in the Echoes to The Grail Message.

The reason of a better understanding in the reworked Message is therefore in contradiction with the fact that the sequence of the lectures in the new reworked edition is rearranged, which completely disturbs the logical upbuilding which was given in the original 1931 The Grail Message, and the rearrangement worsened the possibility of a correct understanding and of the upbuilding of conceptions which the book contains. In the original edition the upbuilding of the work and thoughts is made step by step and the thoughts from one lecture continue right in the next. By mixing up the order of the lectures from the beginning of The Grail Message with the lectures from the Echoes the succession of thoughts was completely disturbed. Let us read once more what Abdruschin wrote in the lecture "I send you!" in the Echoes to The Grail Message:

“Do not also mix anything from the lectures of the present time with the contents from the beginning of The Message; for they cannot be united, because they must follow one after the other, in order to produce the steps for the correct understanding. There is a continuous maturing unconditionally demanded in the sequence determined by me; for I begin with the early stages of the hitherto understanding and gradually increase the Knowledge such that a human spirit can follow me therein. Then I draw apart ever further the parts of Creation, separate much that has hitherto still remained under one collective expression into new parts which I had not yet mentioned beforehand.”

These words of Abdruschin are clear.

Question no.3

Can the God-Envoy contradict Himself and act against positions which He already expressed?

Let us give in regard to this question a quote by German cross-bearers from a letter to Brasil:

“A crushing recognition. The human being accuses the Son of Man of lying and of breaking His word and of perjury on His Word, which latter HE Himself is and which comes from the Primordial Light, from God and the Lord!!! Contradictions in this are completely out of the question, for otherwise perfection would no longer be perfect! Here no twisting and turning and above all no intellectual sophistries come into consideration from those to whom the sound of the Light in the original Message is inconvenient only for the sake of earthly power and influence! The Lord is perfect and leaves no gaps and also no contradictions!”

Abdruschin as the God-Envoy acts out of and in the Divine perfection and therefore His deeds cannot be contradictory. For this reason it is not possible that He wouldn't give an explanation in the introduction or somewhere else in the reworked edition, clarifying that He made changes and in what the new edition differs from the previous one, just as every scientist or honest author does. Should Abdruschin who was a conscientious author forget to do this? Could He throw His readers in doubt and uncertainty on such a fundamental issue?

Question no.4

Did Abdruschin deny His Divine origin?

The declaration of the author of The Grail Message where He identifies Himself as the God-Envoy, the Son of Man, Imanuel, who completed this work and who was promised by Jesus was left out from the reworked 3-volume edition. The disciple Helmuth Müller was the first to point out that the deletion of this Declaration by the Son of Man would be tantamount to the denial of His origin and His high mission. Let us read what Maria and Gregory Pearse write about this:

“So the crucial question that each one of us must ask ourselves is: would the Real Son of Man ever withdraw this Declaration from His Message? Jesus refused to do so, refused to disavow His Divine Origin - and so would have Imanuel. The mere fact of the deletion of this Declaration from the 3-volume edition, therefore, serves as proof positive that the changes in it were not made by the Son of Man Himself. In addition, numerous other passages where the Lord identifies Himself as Imanuel, repeating and reinforcing this Identity, have also been deleted from the 3-volume edition. (In the lecture "Omnipresence" alone, there are 3 (three!) extended references to Imanuel and His Mission, which have been deleted.) As Herr Muller argues in his Open Letter to Frl. Irmingard, if for some reason the Lord did decide to withdraw all references to Himself as Imanuel, He would not have done so without providing some explanation for it right there in the Message.”

Jesus Christ never denied His origin as the Son of God and He never revoked His message and teaching. Does anyone want to attach such behaviour to Abdruschin – the Son of Man? Abdruschin writes in The Grail Message that the knowledge of Imanuel is indispensable for humanity. And why should Abdruschin deny Himself?

Question no.5

What is more important: the words Abdruschin spoke during His life or a statement about the reworking, which emerged only after His death?

All these facts and the contradictions between the words of Abdruschin and the statements of others in favour of the reworked green 3-volume edition lead to the question which we must ask ourselves: whose statements should be taken as serious, binding and final? The statement of Abdruschin, the Son of Man, Imanuel, who was the God-Envoy, which He proved through having written the work In the Light of Truth - The Grail Message in which He brought such knowledge as no human being can possess or should we believe the statements that emerged after Abdruschin's death, which were given by Abdruschin's relatives, that is, by Mrs. Maria a Miss Irmingard who formed a certain unity with Abdruschin during His life in the so-called Trigon. The continuation of this connection after the death of Abdruschin is, however, doubted and there are testimonies that refute the continued connection after Abdruschin's death. Is the word of the living Son of Man less binding that these claims of persons and relatives of Abdruschin who were spiritually connected during His life? Everyone must answer this question for himself. This is not about judging and condemnation of some persons. Judging would be the case only if we were simultaneously handing down punishment. But punishment is reserved for God alone according to the known words "Vengeance is mine, I will repay." But we must form a judgment about the happening and acting of the persons involved after Abdruschin's death. The ability of judging and of telling the truth from lies is a necessary condition for the ascent of the human being. That we must form a judgment, being spiritually maturing spirits, is corroborated through Abdruschin's words from the lecture "Man and his free will".

“Through its wish it is able to change the course in the vibrations like a rudder, as soon as the one no longer suits it. Thus it is able, here and there, to “taste”. In this tasting, it matures further and further, it slowly receives the capacity to distinguish, and finally the ability to judge, until eventually, becoming ever more conscious and certain, it follows a definite direction.”

Conclusion

The existence of the reworked edition and circumstances that led to it are very tragic and very significant for everyone who strives for spiritual ascent and seeks a stay in the Word which Abdruschin brought in the work In the Light of Truth – The Grail Message. The decision and taking a stand as to which edition is to be regarded as definite and which edition as outdated or false, or even as forgery is up to every individual serious reader of The Grail Message or cross-bearer. It is important not to leave you personal position and stance on the issue of the reworking of The Grail Message for fine-matter in order to see it clearly only after death in the beyond. Such a stand is very dangerous, because no one knows what the way and the environment will be in which he will find himself after death, he does not know whether a lukewarm and undecided attitude on the issue of the reworking of The Grail Message won’t lead into a region of deception, semblance and pretence of various false facts and false opinions as it is described in The Grail Message that such regions exist in the beyond. It is very probable that the readers will receive in the beyond at best only again the already known Word of Abdruschin, which clearly speaks against the reworking of the Message and he will therefore again face the same issue with access to the same arguments. We cannot rely on the mercy that a direct answer to the issue of the reworking of The Grail Message will be announced to us.

After being arrested in 1939 Abdruschin gave a statement in October 26, 1939 in which he clearly said about The Grail Message:

"These my words were not changed in the smallest degree. They still read today as in the beginning and they stand simultaneously as a proof and foundation of my reply.

They were from the beginning, as they are today. If in this or that human being his own conviction shifted or changed under other influences or opinions, then I cannot be accused of some deceiving intentions.

From my side, nothing has happened otherwise or been changed, but everything remains so, word for word. And these words are my unchanged, full conviction, towards which I never wanted to persuade other human beings, because I draw only joy from the work itself and it is indifferent to me who and how many human beings will then say that this is also their conviction."

He also wrote in His letter to His disciple Mr. Joseph Kovář dated January 10, 1931:

"The entire Message is now already in the printer in order to be released in April as one big book. It was especially composed for this purpose. It also contains lectures that haven not yet been published.

The translation would have to be undertaken only according to this in itself closed work, and forever remain in this form."

These are again clear words confirming that The Grail Message was not supposed to be changed.

Let us read now the last words of Abdruschin spoken on the last Festival of the Radiant Star on earth, which was celebrated by Abdruschin on December 29, 1937:

"Now go and experience! I have nothing more to say to you!"

That is a clear and definite end of Abdruschin's activity. Does someone want to claim that Abdruschin denied these His words that say He has nothing more to say and of all things, decided to rework The Grail Message? The testimony of Mr. Wagner that Abdruschin wrote something and then let it be hidden on the roof in Kipsdorf does exist, but no one knows the content of these documents, therefore it cannot be said that Abdruschin changed the decision He made on His last Festival.

All the facts and quotes mentioned here from the Word of Abdruschin are a sufficient and clear fact and proof for the serious seeker who objectively examines to make a clear judgment about whether the Word of Abdruschin concerning the impossibility of reworking The Grail Message is true or the statements of the followers given after the death of the author, statements that cannot be proven, because the manuscript in which Abdruschin allegedly made the changes for the reworked edition has not been given to the public to this date and it does not at all exist according to certain testimonies directly from the management of the organizations that are spreading the green 3-volume edition.

The real answer and proof about whether or not The Grail Message could be reworked can be obtained by any serious seeker only when he alone examines the power and the natural integrity and consistency of the original 1931 edition. In His lecture Abdruschin wrote that only that seeker who seriously wants to know the Truth and the Will of God can think of an ascent. No superficial seeker can hope to one day stand before the gates of Paradise. The author of this article has obtained the conviction by himself that the perfection of the original edition cannot at all be compared with the reworked edition where logical structures are broken, not to speak of the fact what very enriching information and words and passages are missing in the reworked edition, words that prevent the incorrect understanding of some conceptions and facts. Without this personal examination only blind faith remains for the reader in the earthly organizations and persons who are not the authors of Abdruschin's words.

 
Today, with the splitting of the atom and other scientific discoveries, we are in the best position to grasp some fundamental facts about Creation: all substances emanate light, i. e. produce radiation. The word "radiation" has only been used in association with the negative effects of the man-made nuclear reactors. Nuclear power, however, is only a typical example of a human blunder that results from part-knowledge of  Creation, which is then too eagerly applied, producing catastrophic effects. In reality, radiation is just light/emanation, which all objects, bodies and substances produce, since every atom radiates. The question is: where does radiation originally come from?    
"The  existence of God, of Power, of Light, i. e., of Life, alone inevitably brings into being the Creations, for the Living Light, the Living Power, can­not but radiate! And these radiations contain all that is necessary for Creation!"
 
The decrease in God's Original Pressure/Radiation at each subsequent level of Creation brings into being layers or Spheres, which quite naturally arrange themselves in a downward direction: with the lightest substances on top and the heaviest substances at the bottom, according to the Law of Gravitation. The layer of matter is situated at the bottom, while the layer containing the pure spiritual substance is situated at the top. So far, earthly science has been dealing only with the lowest, densest and most minute part of the entire Creation, the world of physical visible matter. Relatively recently, a breakthrough has been made in taking the research one step up the ladder of Creation, with the discovery of the world of subtle matter (anti-matter),
 
Three Laws, Which are the Signature of God's Will
 

"Only the man who lives in the Laws of God is free!" (Abdruschin, "IN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH: THE GRAIL MESSAGE", lecture "Submission")

 
1). The Law of Gravitation (or Gravity).
2). The Law of Attraction of Homogeneous Species.
3). The Law of Reciprocal Action.
 
These Three Laws govern not only all phenomena in visible matter, but extend into all activities of human life: our thoughts, our innermost desires and, of course, our visible deeds. This happens automatically (regardless of whether we are conscious of it or not),  because our thoughts and desires produce radiation-waves, which instantly come into contact and interact with the entire Network of Radiations of Creation, governed by these Three fundamental Laws. They are the expressions of Justice, Love and Purity! 
 
These Three Laws affect all Spheres of Creation and all types of substances. The only substance that is visible to us here on earth is that of physical matter, and because of this we have made a very strange and unreasonable assumption that the entire Creation is made up of this one substance. Until recently, even science has suffered from this unfounded and false assumption. Now, finally, with the acknowledgement of the existence of another type of matter (the invisible matter, which they are calling anti-matter or dark matter), they have advanced one step up the ladder of Creation. At this rate, the world will end before earthly science will discover anything of any significance for our spirits. The new direction must invariably lead them above the world of matter (both visible and invisible kinds), into animistic substance and, higher still, into spiritual substance. Ethereal matter, animism, spirit - all these are specific substances, with specific weight and corresponding luminosity. Spirit is not an invention of poets - it is a particular type of substance, out of which the entire Spiritual Sphere of Creation is made: the trees, the lakes, the buildings and, naturally, the inhabitants there. Since this substance is light and luminous, it remains at the very top of Creation, according to the Law of Gravitation. The inner core of every human being is made up of this very substance, therefore it is our duty to nurture and develop this spiritual substance until it radiates outward and transforms the world of visible matter.
 
The spirit has no need to laboriously study Creation from the bottom up. A much more natural approach is to start by studying the stages of development of Creation from above downwards. The one Book  that offers the complete survey of Creation without a gap is the Message brought down from the very summit of Creation, from the Holy Grail Itself, from that "Power-Station", through which all the radiations necessary for the support and maintenance of Creation flow - it is The Grail Message of Abdruschin. It contains detailed explanations of all the radiation-processes and is written in such a way that scientists and peasants alike can comprehend and make use of the marvelous Network of Radiations, Which the Creator put at the disposal of every creature.
 
 
The Courage to Become Ourselves
 
To become "ourselves" means quite simply to become spiritual again, since our very essence - our inner core - is comprised of the spiritual substance, brought down from the Spiritual Sphere of Creation.  This requires no occult training (which only puts one into contact with the dark and swampy regions of the subtle matter), no adherence to any of the earthly religious doctrines (which all contain numerous illogical inconsistencies, incompatible with the Perfection of God as He Is), it requires only familiarizing ourselves with the Laws of God's Radiation and then vigorously adapting our life to Them.
