13. The Spiritual Planes IV

Man has burdened himself with much that acts as a hindrance and prevents an unfolding of his spirit, which of its own accord strives to tread the path upwards, so long as it is not fettered or earthbound by anything.

The main evil, however, remains the one-sidedly and too greatly cultivated intellect which, puffed up, lolls about on a ruler’s throne to which it is not entitled.

It resembles an animal that renders very good service only when controlled, but which definitely has a harmful effect as soon as it is allowed to be independent.

It is like a beast of prey which at first remains friendly and gives pleasure to him who cares for and feeds it, but which, once it has reached a certain size, becomes dangerous even to the one who initially reared it.

It then becomes a tyrant over the caretaker, who must fear it and who completely loses his hitherto accustomed freedom of movement in the cage, the habitat of this animal. All of a sudden the animal controls him within the bounds of its ability to move about.

It is the same with every person and his intellect. And since the intellect not only remained dependent upon the dwelling assigned to it, i.e., upon the particular human body, but also forcefully obtained complete freedom of movement for itself, which is without limit on earth, then the whole of mankind had to submit to its volition.

Nowhere are they safe from it, it lurks dangerously everywhere, ready to use its sharp claws or destructive teeth wherever a person appears who is not willing to submit to it!

This is how things look on earth today! The animal at first so tenderly cared for has grown to an immense strength and cannot again be forced into useful service by anyone. And so it now creates dismal havoc, in which you already find yourself to some degree, and which will spread and become even worse because you are incapable of commanding the beast to stop.

Many persons will fall victim to it, despite the fact that they could easily have controlled the animal if they had only trained it aright at the proper time.

The energy now wasted by the beast for destruction was meant to be used in a beneficial way under the judicious guidance of your spirit, to beautify and uplift yourselves and your surroundings for the peace and joy of all.

Instead of devastation, flowering gardens would lie before you, inviting you to blissful activity in the grateful productivity of peace-loving citizens of the earth.

All of you, without exception, would have become enslaved by the monstrous beast you have reared if God Himself did not now set a limit to it, divesting it of its power and leading it again on paths where it can only work beneficially!

But first you must experience what harm you have committed therewith, you must see and suffer the serious consequences which it brings and entails, so that you will be completely cured of such wrong deeds and striving, and no desire for such things can again arise within you in the future!

This is how God punishes you, by giving you the fulfillment of everything you tried to impose by force through your selfish volition against His command. This, after you not only paid no heed to all those who were sent to you from the Light out of love in order to warn you, but you even persecuted them with your hatred and finally murdered them in blind rage because they were inconvenient to your plans, although they alone could really have helped you.

And through this mistake you also make it impossible for the spirit within you to loosen itself in order gradually to unfold and receive connection with its own species, i.e. with the Spiritual Plane in the Light Ray of the Divine Grace.

The domination of the intellect never permitted this; for its artificially elevated false glory would very quickly have melted away like a snowman in the rays of the sun.

Its fall from the throne would have been unstoppable and it would have had to serve again instead of playing the master.

This accounts for the strenuous resistance, which did not even shy away from murder where its prestige could in any way be endangered.

That is why even today you simply cannot think differently, and press everything you hear, everything that is revealed to you, into earthly forms that are well known to you, thus permitting ideas to arise within you that do not nearly correspond with reality; for the animal that you have nursed and cultivated without making it subject to your control is above you and holds you down! It has placed itself between you and all that is spiritual in a separating way, not allowing anything to pass through to that which is higher than this ambitious beast, your intellect, which remains earthly and is the alluringly glittering but most dangerous and sure tool for your destruction in Lucifer’s hand.

Now free yourselves from it and lift yourselves above it! Otherwise you will never be able to grasp the values that are offered to you from the Light or make use of them for yourselves.

Become the way earthmen used to be before intellectual conceit enveloped them and pressed them down onto that ground which is suitable for them in their narrowness.

At that time people were vibrating in harmony with and in their surroundings, and they could therefore be spiritually uplifted in those vibrations without fear of losing earthly ground and earthly thinking.

How small you have become in comparison with those whom today you characterize as standing in the beginning of development and not yet being of full value as human beings.

They were of greater worth in Creation than you are today and therefore more valuable and useful in the eyes of the Creator than you are in your disastrous distortion, which can leave behind only devastation instead of uplifting what already exists.

You must again return to this point, must again unfold the wings within you which have become completely stunted, if you do not wish to fall; for your spirit is now forcibly freed from all obstruction by the Power of the Light! The obstruction is shattered. Then woe to the spirit that cannot maintain itself in its vibration, it must fall because it has no longer any strength for flight due to lack of any practice and use, of which you wantonly deprived it.

One thing man on earth must pay quite particular attention to for he has sinned severely in this: the connection with the animistic helpers must never be cut off! Otherwise you tear a great gap therewith which harms you.

You must not look upon the great, strong animistic beings as gods; for they are not gods but faithful servants of the Almighty, and they are great in their serving! But they are never subject to you.

However, you must not look down in arrogance at the small animistic beings; for they are not your servants, but like the great ones they serve only God, the Creator. They approach you only in their working, you however, must draw closer to them, should approach them.

You can learn very much from them, especially from their faithful service, which they gratefully dedicate to their Creator. You men absolutely need the great and small helpers, for only through completely harmonious co-operation with them can your souls mature aright and attain to ascent.

Therefore, learn to respect all of the animistic helpers, for they can be your best and most loyal friends!

Then you will vibrate more lightly again, but first you must be free of any limitation by your earthly intellect. Especially when you want to grasp that which I am revealing to you of the Luminous Realms, which can never become comprehensible to you if you will think only in the earthly way; for they are of a nature that can only be absorbed by your spirit!

Only when you have opened yourselves for it will you know what I have given you with my explanations. While I speak about these things already today, they are nonetheless given for a later grasping; for I fulfill, as I do in everything I say to you! I fulfill, since it was once promised that I would reveal Creation to the Developed Ones as well as to the Created Ones, that I would give you the key to the understanding of every happening in Creation.

Safeguard all the knowledge faithfully, for never again can such salvation and such blessing be granted to the earth. As I reveal all this to you, you become the guardians of all the keys! If you allow them to become blemished or you twist only a small part, they will no longer open these secrets of Creation, and the gates will again remain locked not only for a long time, but this time they will be locked to the developed ones forever!

This is the responsibility now resting on you whom I have lifted out among all of mankind, as Jesus once did with His Disciples when He dwelt on the earth.

It has been made easier for you this time; for I not only speak to, but I also write everything down, so that a distortion of the Holy Word can never again occur as devastatingly as happened to the most essential part of what Jesus spoke at that time.

And this time I am given much more time to lead you into everything, so that you can learn precisely what the Will of God is and what He demands of you after He gave to you everything you need for being allowed to be self-conscious.

You therewith became capable of knowingly enjoying all the Grace in Creation, in eternity, if only you proceed aright and become a useful link in this Creation, and provided you do not envy others anything; for there is room and the possibility of existence for all who in following the Law of Movement swing harmoniously with the others!

You small group of bearers of the Holy Cross are now the leaven which I have prepared for mankind, which must now penetrate and further everything, bringing spiritual movement into the ponderous masses so that they need not uselessly collapse and perish.

Faithfully guard the keys that I give you with my words, and always transmit them to those who come after you in the right manner!

As soon as you have become free from the pressure of intellectual compulsion, then all my words that I have already spoken to you and that I shall yet speak will be clear to you. Then you will also absorb what you have heard about Primordial Creation and about the Primordial Beings, who stand at the highest place of all Creations, in the Temple of the Holy Grail.

The first ring around Parsifal, facing towards Creation, consists of four Primordial Beings, who, immediately becoming conscious, were the first to be able to form from the radiations of Parsifal. Swinging continually in joyful creativity they receive and transmit, receive back and radiate back.

There are several rings of Primordial Beings around Parsifal. But all of them, even the first ring, are at a great distance from Parsifal and His Throne, which on account of the pressure they cannot traverse.

The four of the first ring are the strongest of all the Primordial Beings. They are able to bear a greater Light Pressure than the others without having to lose consciousness.

They are:

Od-shi-mat-no-ke, the servant and Light-Protection of the Perfect Trinity. He is the most ideal embodiment of a kingly ruler.

Leilak, the embodiment of manly courage and strength.

These two in their nature are understandable to men. But it is different with the two whom I will name now, for their nature is beyond human conception.

The Lion. It comes closer to the human conception if I say that the Lion as a Grail Knight is the embodiment of the most noble heroism, whose radiation supports and furthers heroic loyalty in Creation.

Mercury, the Primordial Leader of the forces of all the elements. They are anchored within him.

Man may think he has understood without difficulty what I have stated here, but that is not so. He cannot understand it unless I give him an extended explanation about the special nature of the Lion.

In order to do this I must ascend further into the Divine Sphere. Men know allegorically that there are Animals at the Steps of God’s Throne that keep watch, winged, powerful Animals, among which there is a Lion. These Animals are no fairy tale, but they actually do exist there. I have never as yet mentioned them because it would have been too much for the beginning. Therefore we shall only talk about them when the human spirits are more matured than they are today.

What I say about it today is only for those who have already absorbed my Message within themselves, and really seek to make it alive within themselves. Thus it is only for the more mature earthmen!

Man will now ask himself how it is that Animals are in the Divine Sphere, and what is more, even up to the Steps of God’s Throne, indeed onto those Steps, which a human spirit can never reach, no matter how divinely blessed he might be.

However, this is very simple to explain: Man has formed a false conception of the animal, for he only sees the animals of the earth which can develop in the World of Gross Matter!

And that is wrong! Whether they be man or animal, both are creatures in Creation, one as necessary or as dispensable as the other.

The Animals at the Steps of God’s Throne are of an entirely different species from that which human beings think of as animals. They are knowing Animals! Even of this you are unable to form any idea, nor will you ever be able to do so in the right way, for all this is too far removed for the human spirit of the developed beings.

Knowing Animals, whose loyalty and devotion are absolutely incorruptible! There is no wavering or hesitation for them, but only an enthusiastic unchangeable serving! Serving in immediate action, without deliberating, without first needing the volition to do so. A living swinging in the Law as a matter of course and as a necessity for their existence!

They also stand much higher than the developed human spirit, even by the mere fact that in their inviolable purity of activity and strength they are in the Divine Sphere.

Thus they are not animal in the human sense, but of a special species of radiation which has taken on form and is called Animal, just as another, lower species of radiation is called man! Very special explanations are yet needed about this which can only follow much later.

Just as the Lion at the Steps of the Throne of the Unsubstantiate God-Trinity issues from the latter’s radiation, living and working in it, so the Lion in Primordial Creation has issued from the radiation of the likewise Unsubstantiate Core in Parsifal, and has taken on form in the Primordial Spiritual Plane of the first Primordial Creation as Knight of the Holy Grail!

It is a similarity of species in a different form; for the Lion of Primordial Creation bears other things within himself besides, something of the spiritual-human nature about which I shall speak later in greater detail. Within himself He is already a combination, whereas the knowing Lion at the Steps of God’s Throne does not bear another combination within himself.

The Lion of the Primordial Creation is already prepared for the radiation in the Creation as a necessary transitional species. His radiating activity is many-sided but nevertheless more limited than that of the Lion in the Divine Sphere.

All the heroic virtues which manifest here and there in Creation issue from him.

I must not go into details today, for this diverts too much from what I want to say in this lecture. I will only remark in passing that from the radiations of this heroism a share was also given to the spirit of those earthmen who were active as real heroes.

This was well known to the ancient Germanic people and to the Greeks, as well as to many other earlier human races who still maintained a conscious connection with the Animistic.

At the earthly death of such a hero the animistic beings guided the animistic radiation-part of the heroism to Valhalla, the uppermost Castle in the Animistic Ring of Creation, whereas the spirit had to go to his assigned plane. In spite of this, if the spirit had been active in the good sense, both parts would have remained connected with each other by threads.

These two parts were only separated when the spirit stepped downwards, so that the animistic part could not be dragged along. Otherwise the two parts would flow together again at earthly incarnations.

This attribute of heroism is a special gift for earth-man, the reception of which is prepared through a definite state of maturity of the spirit concerned, as well as through a definite path thereof.

For certain tasks on earth a part of these animistic rays of the Lion is needed, for an aggressiveness swinging in purity is anchored therein, combined with an absolute devoting of oneself, which the spiritual as such does not carry within, for its highest goal is up-building and peaceful activity.

All real heroism in Creation is anchored in the Lion, who as Knight of the Holy Grail stands in the first ring of the Primordial Beings, and who, upon his petition, was anchored in an earthly human body, so as to actively assist in the holy fulfillments on earth, directly, while being in the same proximity of his Lord, just as in the Light Castle of Primordial Creation.

True heroes will gather around him spiritually and physically, because in the laws of Creation, through the power and basic nature of his radiation, it has to happen this way and can be no other way; for they are inseparably anchored in him. Sham heroism will naturally stand aloof from him and must even thereby reveal itself as such.

In the Holy fulfillments on earth this is one of the many processes incomprehensible to men, which in All-wise providence are God-willed, but which in their effect are so simple and natural, as it is with everything instituted by God.

Men will stand in awe before the certainty of the workings of God’s laws, where nothing other than absolute automatic fulfillment can exist, which in the last moment, with All-power, will toss aside anything intent on inhibiting it.

Now I have also simultaneously lifted the edge of a veil a little from the Animals on the Steps of God’s Throne. They are four winged knowing Animals who guard the Throne: an Eagle, a Lion, a Bull and a Ram. The Ram, however, bears a human countenance, for the Ram carries the human-spiritual within himself!

The four knowing Animals on the Steps of God’s Throne have issued from the immediate radiations of God and can live therein knowingly. They bear within themselves the basic species for the Creations, whereas the Archangels swing in a different species of radiation. It is not without significance that the birth of the Son of Man on earth falls within the sign of Aries (the Ram) according to Law!

But to solve these mysteries is not the task of today’s lecture. Accept with gratitude to God what I am allowed to offer you, try to understand everything, and do not playfully jump from one thing to another. You cannot afford to do so in these things, for they are much too powerful and too high for the trifling thoughts customary to mankind.

However, the more keenly and earnestly you exert yourselves really to grasp the Truth of my Word, the more I am able to reveal to you. For you the key to the gate of my knowledge lies in your effort! Therefore strive in such a way that I can give to you with full hands!
