But, usually, it is a preparation. You are taken to those places which will help you to be ready for your work when you leave the world of matter. If that were not done, the shock of coming from one sphere of expression to another would be so great that it would take you a long time to recover.       That is why it is easier for those who have knowledge when they come to our world.

The passing from your world to mine is not difficult, as a rule, because usually the one who passes is not conscious of the change at the time. It is only advanced souls who register the passing out of the world of matter into the world of spirit.       If such a person has been good, will he suffer in any way for not believing the truth of Survival, even if he has been told of it?       Good, bad, I do not know what these words mean. It will depend only upon the life he has led, the service he has rendered, the opportunities he has taken to unfold the Great Spirit that is within him. That is all that counts.

We who are not encased in matter have to use matter, and we obtain it to some extent from the actual substances that are here. We take a little from everything so as not to destroy things. Otherwise, you would find your furniture falling to pieces.       Is that why sometimes in materialization seance-rooms the curtains, say, wear out quickly? @@  Yes, that is the reason. But we are very careful. Sometimes colour is taken from material things in order to provide the colours used in materializations. When you know more about our work you will learn that nothing is wasted. But the greatest power of all is the power that comes from within each one of you. That is the greatest ingredient.       Mediums must develop not only the powers of their mediumship, but also the powers of their spirit. You must learn that the power of the medium's own spirit raises the quality of the ectoplasm. It is not wood or clay with which we are dealing, but the essence of life as contained in the medium.
