The earth is a great school for the spirit of man. Here he has to develop to that stage of consciousness which brings with it the final turning-point away from the sway of earth, and a continuing ascent into Luminous Heights, until he is able to enter Paradise as a human spirit, conscious of itself.
But the human spirit's becoming conscious of itself, which proceeds in many stages, and the absorbing of the many-sided Knowledge of Creation necessary for this, cannot be accomplished in one earth-life.
The human spirit must return to earth a number of times, and incarnate in human bodies.
Human beings often meet each other again in the various earth-lives. Sometimes we fleetingly divine this when we meet some earthman who is unknown to us, and then intuitively sense that we have known him for a long time already. We find the same with certain places and regions.
With regard to the development of earthman to spiritual maturity, we must however bear in mind that it cannot take just as long as we like, nor be interrupted and continued again as often as we please.
A plant does not ever again interrupt its growth either, to continue growing afterwards, but it develops steadily towards maturity in the span of time set for it by the Creator.
This Law of Nature applies also to the spiritual growth of man, who like the plant is a product of Creation.
In the great school of mankind he too is given a period of time in which he must have reached the climax of his spiritual development.
This climax is now here! It is determined by the great Cosmic Turning-Point which is linked with the maturity of Creation.
With it comes a final extension of the Knowledge of Creation, right to the Knowledge of the Holy Grail! Its actual existence is confirmed and explained in the Grail Message "In the Light of Truth", by Abd-ru-shin.
In the course of thousands of years, tidings of the existence of the Grail in the Spiritual have often come down to earth, but the human intellect made it so earthly that the true origin remained unclear and hazy, and the genuine longing for the lofty and pure which is contained in the Grail could not arise in the souls of men.
At the time of Jesus men did not yet show themselves so far advanced as to be able to grasp the Knowledge of the Grail. About this Jesus said: "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth" (John 16, 12-13). Here Jesus calls the Son of Man proclaimed by Him the "Spirit of Truth".
Man must gradually make himself familiar with the thought that not only on earth, but also in the supra-earthly regions, everything is formed, although of finer, lighter species of Creation.
Indeed the earth is simply the coarsest image of the already-existing supraearthly prototypes, which are far more perfect and beautiful than the forms visible to us.
The Holy Grail actually exists. It is a Chalice, which is to be found in the Grail Castle in the highest Spiritual Realm, the Primordial Creation, at the boundary to the Divine Realm.
The Grail Castle is the sole point of connection between Creation and God; it can also be called a Power-Transmission-Point for the Radiation-Power coming from the Divine Realm.
From the beginning of Creation, this stream of Spiritual Power pours in prime-eternal rhythm, like pulse-beats, into Creation, to renew and maintain it.
Just as the heart allows the blood to pulsate through the body, so the Spiritual Power streams out of the Holy Grail into Creation anew at regular intervals once a year, on the Day of the Holy Dove - when the Dove appears above the Holy Grail. It is the Day of the Outpouring of Power through the Holy Spirit!
The human spirit also lives from this Power, but alas, he has mainly applied it wrongly, and misused it for base ends. He has become the most destructive element in the world!
At that time the disciples experienced in a special way this Outpouring of Power, thus the annual Renewal of Power, which Jesus had promised them. -
In the Revelation (Apocalypse), given from a spiritual aspect, John describes in picture-language many happenings, localities and personalities connected with the Grail. His spiritual eye beheld tremendous happenings that took place, and will yet take place, in the Divine Realm, down to the deepest depths of the Darkness!
Thus he designated the Grail Castle, standing in the Spiritual, the "temple of God" (Rev. 11, 19; 15, 5).
But the "fountain of the water of life", mentioned in chapter 21, 6, is the Holy Grail!
However unusual to the seeking man this new Knowledge may be at first, he will have no choice but to occupy himself with it seriously, because the time for this is ripe!
The true Knowledge of the Grail will give the spiritual character to the new epoch that now dawns with the Cosmic Turning-Point, because the human spirit will then be able at the right time to receive consciously and gratefully, to the blessing and joy of all creatures in Creation, the Power, the Water of Life, streaming out of the Holy Grail. Full of promise, therefore, are the words of the Revelation of John: "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely." (Rev. 21, 6). "And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely." (Rev. 22, 17).
To him who uses this Power out of the Holy Grail aright, the Gate to Paradise will open, and he may receive the Crown of Life (Rev. 2, 10), the gift of being allowed to exist eternally! -
At the present time we are in the midst of one of the most important fulfilments of the Apocalypse, of the Revelation of John: in the Cosmic TurningPoint, in the World Judgment!
Revolutionary events that can no longer be stayed, an abundance of signs, inevitably point us to this.
Through the guilt of men that has arisen over thousands of years, the world is out of joint, and only for God alone is it yet possible to redress the balance.
But in all the confusion and distress, the Message from the Grail brings salvation and help out of Luminous Heights!
Amid the downfall of all evil, It mediates the Power for renewal and upbuilding!
