ONE is often approached with this question, but it would be wrong to reply with a definite rule and to say "Do this" and "Do that"! That is not showing the way! It would be completely devoid of life, and for this reason nothing living, such as is absolutely necessary for soaring upwards, can arise from it, for life alone contains the key necessary for ascent!
If now I say "Do this and that, and don't do the other," I am only giving weak, external crutches on which no one can walk properly and independently, for these crutches do not at the same time help him to "see"! And yet he must see the "way" clearly before him, otherwise the crutches are of no use to him! Such a person would only hobble about aimlessly, like a blind man on a road he does not know. No, that is not the right thing, and would once more only lead to another dogma, which would hinder and delay every ascent!
Let man consider: If he wishes to enter the Realm of the Spirit he must naturally journey there! He must walk there - it does not come to him! The Spiritual Realm lies at the summit of Creation, indeed it is the highest point itself!
The human spirit, however, is still in the nether regions of the World of Gross Matter. Therefore it will probably be clear to everyone that he must first wander from these nether regions to the longed-for height in order to reach the goal!
In order not to lose his way it is imperative that he should have a thorough knowledge of the whole distance he has to traverse! Not only the way itself, but also everything he may meet en route, the dangers which threaten him, and the help he can count upon! Since the road lies entirely within Creation, in fact is Creation, the wanderer who journeys towards the Spiritual Realm must become absolutely familiar beforehand with the Creation which leads him there. For he needs must pass through it, otherwise he will not reach his goal!
Up till now there has been no man able to give such a description of Creation as it is necessary to absorb in order to ascend. In other words, there was no one who could make the way to the Grail Castle, the summit of Creation, visible and distinct. It is the way to the Castle which stands as the Temple of the Almighty in the Spiritual Realm, where alone pure worship takes place. This is not only meant allegorically, but it exists in all reality!
The Message of the Son of God pointed out the way once before. But in his eagerness to show how clever he was, man interpreted it wrongly in many respects and consequently misplaced the signposts, thereby misleading the human spirit and preventing it from rising!
Now, however, the hour has arrived in which every human spirit must decide for itself, whether it is to be "yes" or "no", day or night, ascent to the Luminous Heights or descent, finally and irrevocably, without any further possibility for it to reconsider! For this reason another Message from the Luminous Castle has now been given. This Message puts the misplaced signposts back into their proper places, so that the right road may be recognised by all serious seekers!
Happy are all those who adjust themselves to this Message with an open mind and a free heart! They will find in it all they must know of Creation, and see all the rungs which their spirit must use on its ladder of ascent in order to enter into the Spiritual Realm, Paradise!
Each individual will find in it what he needs for his climb towards the Light with the abilities he possesses!
That alone brings life, freedom for ascent, and development of the abilities necessary for each individual, as against the uniform yoke of a fixed dogma which makes him a slave without a will of his own, suppresses all independent development, and thereby not only hinders but completely destroys the possibility of ascent for many!
The man who knows Creation in all its lawful activity will soon comprehend the sublime Will of God in it. If he adjusts himself to it in the right manner Creation, and also the way itself, will serve him only for a joyful ascent, because then he also stands correctly in the Will of God. His way and his life must therewith be right!
It is not the attitude of a canting devotee, writhing on his knees with eyes upturned in contrite prayer, but prayer made a living reality in fresh, pure-minded and joyful activity! It is not begging and whining to have the way pointed out, but recognising it with a thankful upward glance to the Creator and travelling upon it cheerfully!
Thus a life which can be described as devoted to God is quite different from what has been presumed hitherto! It will be much more free and beautiful! It means standing aright in Creation as is willed by your Creator through His Creation, in which (metaphorically speaking) one grasps the hand of God which He thereby stretches out to mankind!
Therefore I call out once more: Take all these things as factual, as real, and no longer regard them as figurative! Then you yourselves will become living realities instead of the lifeless shadows you now are! Learn to understand Creation aright in its laws!
Therein lies the way upward to the Light!
