If you recall I began the first part of this conference by stating that I had been given a wealth of knowledge and that I wanted to share it with all of you.  Now I will share some of that information with you, but first let me tell you when and how I received that information, as well as its relationship to the topic of death and dying.


In the year 2001, on my birthday - September 11, the United States was struck with indescribable horror.  When I arrived home from work, that night, my immediate reaction was to enter into a personal space in my home where I pray and begin to privately pray for six of my family members whom I was sure had been killed and ten others who lived, and worked, in the immediate vicinity of the tragic and brutal terrorist attack upon the United States.  In that personal space of my home, and within my private inner chambers, I asked in silence for light to be shed upon our lives.  I wanted to know the status of the scheme of things.  And then, as I focused my gaze upon the emblem of the Rosy Cross, within a split second, I saw the body of Jesus Christ supervising a choir of Angels.


There, standing at the bottom of the rubble, close to, and encircling the Twin Towers in New York City were thirty-two Angels and Jesus Christ.  I noticed, at once, that a braided strand of golden thread was emanating from the heart of Jesus Christ.  From my vantage point, at approximately every six to eight feet it pierced through one of the Angel’s hearts, thus creating an angelic chain that extended the length of several miles of the braided golden thread.


     When all the Celestial Souls were lifted from the ground, Jesus Christ began to walk forward and everyone else followed him in a single file.  Within seconds, literally, thousands of Celestial Souls had reached the heavens.  Then, when at the tail end of the braided strand of golden thread I saw twelve of my family member enter the Celestial Heavens, I felt a thug - a very sharp pull within my own heart.  My recollection of that moment is wondering and asking myself if I had been connected to the braided strand of golden thread all along.  Today almost eleven months have passed and, at any given time, I can still isolate the tremendous pain I was feeling in my heart at that particular instant. 


Many words were spoken and many things took place that I cannot clearly describe.  Perhaps I deliberately shut off my spiritual vision in order not to see the thousands of dead bodies. Or was it perhaps that I deliberately turned off my spiritual hearing in order not to hear the laments and sorrows of thousands of dead bodies?  I only recall the chatter of my own voice. It clearly made demand upon Jesus Christ.  During this time I saw or heard nothing, but I felt the darkness and what appeared to be an extremely long moment of profound sorrow.  Then in my words and in my own voice I heard “me” say: “Where is your Divine Essence?” At this time a bright light began to shine upon me and I saw the face of Jesus Christ.  With his image came the response to my question.  It clearly and distinctly said: “Lights the darkness.”  Looking, then, at my surroundings, the last thing I recall is seeing and hearing the Twin Towers of New York City collapse.  This I saw from afar, until I became consciously aware that I had already entered another point in space and time.


When I became totally aware of my surroundings I realized that I was connected to the braided strand of golden thread and that the Angels were depositing, or leaving, groups of Soul Spirits in certain realms of life they referred to as “spheres.” The group of Angels seemed to be moving us to different states of matter.  Their objective was clearly twofold.  Firstly, they wanted to introduce the Soul Spirits to their new or original bodies. Secondly, the Angels wanted to take them to a new place in which they could spend moments focusing on perfecting themselves, as well.


With only one exception, each time we stopped at a specific sphere a group of Soul Spirits and several Angels were left behind.  Before we moved on, the sphere and its reason for being was identified.  As the Angels spoke I had a sense that they were aware of my presence.  They spoke as though I was their pupil as well. Their behavior reminded me of “I Corinthian 15:31,” where Paul said, “I die daily,” meaning that he was able to depart the physical form at any time, leaving it in a state of “sleep” or suspended animation, while he traveled in full consciousness on the higher plane.  This realization made me a better student and I consciously began to pay attention to the smallest detail.


As some of you may already know there are many known layers of endeavor or planes of expression.  These include Lower astral, Astral and the first to the fourth true planes of Spirit.  There are seven astral planes and each varies in density.  Each plane is inhabited by Soul Spirits and depending on the vibrations of their astral bodies, each plane become more refine as one climbs the ladder of progress.  In turn each one of these planes has divisions called time zones, or spheres, which house Soul Spirits who belong to that period of time.


In regards to the social constitution of the “spheres,” Growing more intense and increasing in action are six more distinguished as the spiritual spheres.  Each is divided into six circles, or societies, in which kindred spirits are united and subsist together under the law of affinity. Here the Law of Attraction operates as a family relation is continued, where every member’s Soul Spirit is seeking enlightenment in the same cosmic law.  The law of Nature which is the supreme force, called Universal Law, has to be obeyed in order that each sphere may be reached.  Every individual remains upon the plane for which he is fitted until he subjects his will to the Universal Law.  As he progresses he learns new laws, but they are fundamentally the same, only they grow more intense and vital until the Soul Spirit becomes a part of the law itself.


To me, the spheres resembled concentric zones, or circles of extremely fine matter encompassing the earth like girdles or belts.  Each sphere had a distinct separation from the others and appeared to be regulated by fixed cosmic laws.  They are absolute entities, not shapeless mental projections, and just as tangible as the planets of the Solar system or the earth plane upon which we reside.  They have latitude, longitude, and atmosphere of peculiarly vitalized air.  The currents were invigorating, pleasurable, soft and undulating.  The surface of the zone had a great variety of landscape, some of which was most picturesque. 


I was told that each spheres revolved with the earth on a common axis, forming the same angle of the ecliptic.  Each moves with it about the earth’s sun, yet is not dependent upon that sun for either light or heat.  They do not receive a perceptible ray from that source.  Their light emanations appear to come from an etheric sun, which is concentric with the earth’s sun.  Finally, there is no division of time into days, weeks, months, years, nor alteration of seasons.


It is hard to understand where these spheres are, but there are many things quite as difficult of comprehension.  Astronomical instruments have shown us that it is 93 millions of miles to the sun, but this really conveys nothing to the mind, because one cannot comprehend such a distance.  We know that light travels at the rate of (186,000 Mile/second) one hundred and eighty six thousand miles a second, but what that rate of speed is we cannot understand, for there is nothing tangible with which to compare it.


Our actual knowledge of electricity, of magnetism, or even of gravitation is limited, as are all of Nature’s Laws.  Then, is it strange that one finds difficulty in appreciating what space is and how it is populated?  This thought of mine is even now free and can pass through space, but it goes with its eyes close, it hears no sound, and feels no touch.  However, at death each sense is quickened, and all life that fills space is visible to the spiritual senses and tangible to spiritual touch and brain.  I deduce from all of this that space must then take form, substance, and reality, in a world of thought.


What follows is a minute portion of the wealth of information I was given during the time I was privilege to be in the company of the many and in the presence of Jesus Christ.    


Generally the First Sphere is where restitution must be made.  In this lower sphere one sees much suffering among those who are still earth bound. Since they are busy working out past faults, in general, most of the Soul Spirits here are heavy hearted.  In part, this is due to the fact that in the transfer our Soul Spirit does not lose any of his intelligence; neither is anything added to his understanding.  So, for example, the insane pass from the earth life insane still.  A Soul Spirit who has passed from the earth life insane will be cared for in the First Sphere.  He will be given proper treatment so that his mentality will be restored to the normal.  Participations in events like wars or terrorist attacks are examples of what we need to make restitution for.  In addition, any hatred, death and destruction we build up towards the enemy affects the gross nature of our lower self, and we must suffer the consequences of that behavior.  And lastly, for the ignorant and vicious the atom of good that has found expression in them is developed and directed.


The Second Sphere is one of instruction.  It is a period of study during which the Soul Spirit gains knowledge of self and natural law.  The Law Of Attraction operates here, where a number of thoughtful men are seeking to discover the hidden forces of nature.  This is where our Soul Spirit fits itself for a broader and better life.  Here they must free themselves from the burden of any wrongdoing.  The goal is to dispel the darkness of any wrongdoing while in the physical body, as well as every debt due to mankind.  They work with clear eyes and clear vision and at the end they are at peace with all. 


In this sphere children are shown how to live spiritual ideals.  Many are there as a result of wars.  The children who die during wars with their parents enter a transitional period.  They will then be reunited in the most suitable sphere for their family’s progression.  Other children are there because they were not loved on earth and are now experiencing maternal love.  In the physical plane we call these children “failures to thrive.”  When a child dies before his parents he is taken through a process of reeducation.  In this process the child is allowed to go with a guardian to the earth plane to keep watch over his parent’s progress and when the time is right the family is reunited.


In the Third Sphere is where our Soul Spirit begins to teach those in the lower spheres.  Here those Soul Spirits who are engineers are capable of magnetizing our rooms in the physical plane.  In the process we may hear the frequencies of their vibrations as voices.  This is not an automatic process, one must ask this of them in prayer.  We also find women here who, when on earth, never married or were married but childless for one reason or another.  These women may be taking care of children or teaching other women on the subject of motherhood.  Perhaps they would have made great mothers, on this earth plane, but as the opportunity passed them by, their desire followed them into the other life.


In the Fourth Sphere our Soul Spirit is engaged in trial and temptation.  The Soul Spirits that inhabits this sphere are capable of sensing our loving thoughts.  Although it is not always possible for people to see them they visit us and sometimes they leave their marks.


In the Fifth Sphere our Soul Spirit begins to work with Spiritual truth.  It is here where error and falsehood are known.  A person will come to this sphere if he has failed at the crucial moment and has nullified the good he could have done.  We are the custodians of much knowledge.  Through our investigations we learn many things.  If by reason of our position we could have done much good but failed to do so, that was a stumbling block, and before we can progress, we must become strong in whatever area we were weak.  It is interesting to note that there is no progress possible in the after life for one occupying the position of spiritual leader on earth until he has searched out in his plane all those who had followed his teachings, and has brought them to the truth.  Moreover he must stand and wait until the coming of those still in the earth life in order that his error should be corrected at the earliest possible moment.  To promulgate unknown or impracticable teachings while on this earth plane is a serious matter.  It violates a cosmic law, thus creating a karmic debt to humanity.


When we reached the Sixth Sphere I notice that the Soul Spirits already there were working in harmony.  None of the Soul Spirits from our groups, or any Angels were left in this sphere and no explanation was given.  I deduce from this that perhaps I did not have the required background to capture the reasons for the existence of the Sixth Sphere.  Or   is it possible, that perhaps it is the Sixth Sphere whose cosmic laws I am currently trying to perfect in this lifetime?


Finally, in the Seventh Sphere is where the Soul Spirit reaches the plane of exaltation and becomes one with the Great Spirit that rules the universe.  This is where an enlightened Master would go to live in a condition of perfect inner light and happiness.  In this sphere the word “enlightenment” means complete awareness of all things, without mental modifications.  It is easier for Soul Spirits, on the Seventh Sphere, who have advanced to a higher, more pure, life to reach us than for those in any other sphere.  However, Spirit Souls in the Seventh Sphere will reach us and contact us only in emergency cases.


We were told that when our Soul Spirit goes from one sphere to another, he is also going through a death change.  In this case, as it is in physical death, the individual is warned that the change is near and has time to put his mind into a higher plane of thought so that he will be prepared to meet the new life.  When the time comes, he is put to sleep, with the thought dominant in his mind that he is to make the change.  When this change comes, his home ceases to be among his former friends.  Thought has fitted him to progress, and when that thought which held him to the lower plane has ceased, the embodiment of that Soul Spirit, which is held together by his thought, is no longer visible.  At this time, one simply ceases to be an inhabitant of one sphere and in an instant one becomes an inhabitant of another.  When the Soul Spirit awakens, he is in his new home in the next higher sphere.  This change is always for a better and higher life.  The only exception is that there is no old body to bury or decay.  As our Soul Spirit progresses from one sphere to another, it becomes so great and universal that we sometimes think they go beyond and must lose their personality.  Because all astral matter ceases to exist on the spiritual plane and only pure Spirit functions there, we often believe that they change their individuality into another form.  I was surprised to find out that my assumption was not true. 


In my visual experience of the terrorist attack, which took place on September 11, 2001, was also an intensely interesting lesson about the victims and the terrorist in general.  This vision showed me many of the conditions prevailing in the after life.  I hope, that by now, I have impressed upon you that the detachment of the Soul Spirit from the physical form is a natural process.  This is true, even when death is unexpected and or violent.  However, in the case of a sudden impact, like we experienced during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, Christ and his infinite mercy played a big role in the process of the death of many. 


In a Sudden impact such as: shock, accident, catastrophe, heart attack or suicide, the entire spiritual body, including the Astro-Mental bodies are thrown completely free of the physical body by the impact.  In these cases all three of the seed atoms would be separated, detached or discharged from the physical body in a flash of a second.  In any violent death, the Soul Spirit goes through some degree of shock.  The deep sleep that appears to fall over the consciousness of these Soul Spirits appears to be much faster, almost at the speed of lightning.  Because of this rapidity there is no suffering or pain.  The awareness is blocked from the consciousness until the Soul Spirit has been completely separated and is placed in a state of peace, before consciousness is resumed on the other side.


In reference to the victims of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, I learned that day that while the passing out of the old body was without pain, it is a terrible thing to drive a strong spirit from a healthy body by literally tearing it from its coverings; simply because it is unnatural.  Because this type of death is unnatural, the sensation following death was awful.  I learned that for those victims, only through death could they progress.  The personal advantages beyond the physical were greater than those in the physical plane.


In this vision, while I observed the immediate surroundings I noticed that it was neither day nor night.  I could not see a star or a ray of light.  But I could sense that there was gloom all around us.  I carefully watched, and among the victims was a dark atmosphere with flashes of red that appeared to swallow us with a thick and heavy mist.  As all the dead bodies waited in a silent fear I seemed to be feeling their thoughts – I could hear them think.  After a time several angels with kindly faces approached the victims and they were told what had occurred and were brought to the realization of their situation.  When a new fact was stated, the law and the conditions making such fact possible were also explained.  It was only after many explanations that each of the victims came to understand that in the crash of the airplane against the Twin Towers of New York City their Soul Spirits had been forced out of their physical bodies. 


I was able to grasp when each victim came to a realizing sense that he had left the physical world of men because when they realized that in the catastrophe they had gone out of earth-life, their sorrow was beyond words.  At that point in time I felt the sorrow that came to them with such realization.  It was sorrow for the wife, sorrow for the husband, and sorrow for their babies, as well as the questioning whether their trials, sorrows and suffering incidents in the physical world were necessary.  It was also very clear to me that from the vantage point of some of the victims the matter of living a few years, more or less, was very important.  Their great grief when they learned what had actually happened bound them and held them to that condition and that point in space. 


In a violent death of this type the death may be accompanied by some measure of momentary shock.  I specifically recall seeing a small, heavy-set woman with almond shaped eyes and a well-defined contagious smile.  When the other victims were approached she commented that she was “perfectly fine.”  At the time she spoke, I still recall thinking how much she reminded me of my uncle’s son’s wife.  The woman did not realize that her physical form had been killed and that she was dead to the physical plane.  However, the sight of her stricken physical body, surrounded by other dead bodies, was the means of her eventual realization.


What happened in this case was that previous to the airplane striking the Twin Towers the endocrine glands of this woman had suddenly secreted their transition hormones.  The instantaneous secretion into the blood stream causes a temporary suspension of consciousness and the shock of the sudden projection of the Astro-Mental body from the physical form is not registered in the mind.  As a consequence, Christ’s mercy comes into play.  The deep sleep of death that follows is no more than an anesthetic at work in the body.  It blocks the waking consciousness for a given time, closing off the conscious awareness of the Soul Spirit while the higher forms and spiritual forces are separated or withdrawn.


First, the heart seed atom releases the picture images of her approaching death into the blood stream and the glands secrete their transition hormones At this time the seed atoms in the physical form becomes prepared to be released from the physical form by these hormones, so after the impact the spiritual body was jarred free of the physical and the woman continued her last conscious thought as if there had been no fatal blow at all.


The victims remained in this state for what appeared, to me, to be a long while.  And then several Angels with kindly faces began to speak out loud. This time their words were not imprinted in a mental picture as before.  This time, it was almost as if my ears were recording specific patterns of human speech.  They told the victims that their “death had only advanced their sphere of life; and that they were still living beings, inhabitants now of the first plane beyond the earth….” After a few other comments they ended by saying that “only through physical death could each progress.”


I noticed that throughout the contact, the victims did not move.  I sensed that they did not find happiness until the time that the Angels had spoken to them.  Somehow the presence of the Angels, or perhaps the Angels’ words themselves, had healed their particular sorrows.  Once they came to full consciousness, they were able to move at will.  Then the dark condition seemed to change before my eyes, just as mist dissolves before the sun, and a ray of light that grew brighter each moment replaced it.


The terrorists appeared to be together in a heap pile.  When I counted the bodies there were ten terrorists.  Among them were two victims who had been part of the same group of terrorists.  The group of bodies I saw was placed in the same actual space of the braided strand of golden thread. Their position, or placement between the same two angels, seemed to indicate that their final destination was also the same place. Although they appeared to be isolated from the victims in a heap pile the Angels approached the terrorists in the same manner.  I was not able to see, sense or perceive any differential treatment. The Angels welcomed and treated the terrorists in the same loving, humble manner they had served the victims.


For the terrorist, it was substantially the same appearance that prevailed with the victims.  Yet, for the terrorists who perished that day the same emanations appeared to be producing a different effect.  The most intense was their tangibility, which was uttered by the dark and red ether around them itself, the extent to which you have no idea. 


This is one experience I want to relate because it has made a profound impression upon me.  For a moment, the first apparent difference was that within the terrorist there was no unconscious state.  They were not thinkers; they drifted almost as if they had no mental faculties. 


Furthermore, even though I could sense that they felt the suffering of humanity, a mother’s mourning, a wife’s heart breaking, a child sobbing, the thought suggestions I was sensing appeared to help and sustained the terrorists with a virility and vigor.  In that force they seemed to satisfy a greed inhabited by what I understood as raw selfishness.  It was presented to me as an ambition giving them the authority to defend a nation or the integrity of a country in a Divine order.  I had a distinct impression that although they knew their end result was physical death they had clues as to the understanding of physical death.  It was not a simple understanding of what physical death was, but a deeper understanding of what the death of all led to.  In the reality about them there was no fear.  For them, living in the present time was not as intense as it was for the victims.  In the presence of such an experience I could see how they had released the pull of the physical realm.


With my Christian background I was hoping and perhaps expecting a small glimpse of remorse.  I wanted to hear the terrorist, the Angels, or some one, say they were sorry.  I wanted to hear that some good might come out of it – but I heard none.  Soon, above them, arouse a golden cloud that formed and moved as if directed.  When I asked in my mind, I was told, or had a sense that I was told, that the terrorists were concentrating their thoughts.  Yet, what was over them was not emanating from their own thoughts.  They appeared to be communicating with the God force within them


The Angels with kindly faces also came to the terrorists as a ray of light that grew larger by the moment, and I listened to the words of encouragement that flooded into my mind.  The words were: “We are taught about God’s love as soon as we are able to accept the new conditions of life after death.  He is not the abstract God that most humans on earth know.  We must recognize that God is at the heart of everything.  He is the one power that flows through all creation.  You can only truly know yourself when you understand that God is the only well from which you can draw the water of life.  There is no other source when we have this mental concept of God.”  I realized, then, that we are taught how to draw on his power.  However, until then, we are not left on our own in an objective world.  It may appear objective to us, but it has been created by the intangible mind of God with his will flowing through every image of his creation and giving life to all.  At this time I also realized that the terrorists were to learn and comprehend that in the three dimensions of our physical world our five senses do not explain the worse than blind.  At the end they left with a form of a promise that upon getting on the other side, all things, such as getting knowledge and light and wisdom were theirs.  Then the words ended, and once again there was silence


It is clear to me that people take into the after life the same Soul Spirit that they had in this life, divested of the outer flesh.  Everything is worked out.  There is nothing left to chance.  By means of psychic sight I could perceive them so acutely that they were just as real to me as if an impression had come into my retina.  I was filled with happiness because I knew that some great change had occurred.  Within the terrorists God had taken from them everything that they had desired to get rid of.  They felt that some power had given them a delightful experience, which they had often in a measure imagined, but dared scarcely to believe could be possible.  It was apparent, to me, that the terrorist had taken a long journey and had come to a house of rest.  With no dreams to disturbed their rest they had awakened like a giant refreshed.  What brought them the greatest knowledge was that they had gained what they had once believed they had lost.


In my afterthoughts of today I can appreciate the fact that even wind may be solidified, for wind is atmosphere.  All in the world is substance and all is life.  They are one and the same thing, for life has never existed and never can exist without matter.  To me, the brain, for example, appears like a fine machine in constant action.  In this fine machine, as a thought is formed and released, through the movement of matter they reach us.  When they enter there is a definite consistency of matter in motion that passes into the brain machine.  Not only can we see them enter, but although limited, we can also see them emerge instructed to do right in a way I cannot describe.  If we can see this matter enter we may understand their psychic sum total.  These are cognizable to our vision by the perfect form that exists in each.


Between the two groups described above, the work of the victims was to build character.  The great law that made this possible and is highest for mankind is the influence of the earth that justifies both the victims and the terrorists.

Rosicrucian Fellowship  Purposes, Aims, and Activities


  The Rosicrucian Fellowship is a Christian organization composed of men and women who are students of the Rosicrucian Philosophy as presented in The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception. This philosophy is known as the Western Wisdom Teaching and establishes a meeting-ground for science and religion. Its students are located throughout the world; but their International Headquarters is located at Oceanside, California, USA.

The Rosicrucian Fellowship has no connection with any other organization. It was launched during the late summer and autumn of 1909, after a course of lectures in Seattle by Mr. Max Heindel. A study center was formed and the Headquarters were temporarily located in that city. Arrangements were also made for publishing The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception. With the issue of this work by the Rosicrucian Fellowship, the Association was definitely started.
