Selfless love

In order to be able to enter a sphere of light, love appears to be the key word.
It concerns selfless, altruistic love:
It must now be clear to you that the Spheres of Light were built up by means of real altruistic thinking and feeling.

Collective light

Theo from the book ‘Through the Grebbe-line to Eternal Life’ wonders whether, just like his father, he can build up a spiritual dwelling in the first sphere of light.
His father and the twin soul of his father, Angelica, have drawn up a spiritual dwelling in this sphere because they had a task there whereby that dwelling was useful.
However, for Theo this is not useful, because he wants to incarnate to the earth in order to devote himself to mankind.
Theo asks his father:
‘So can I also create a spiritual dwelling for myself?’
‘That is possible, but we create a spiritual dwelling for ourselves when we consider this necessary, if the conditions for this are present in our lives.
That means that we only start with it when we and our twin soul go further upwards in the spirit.
Angelica is my soul, she follows me and is mine for eternity.
We are one in thoughts and feelings.
Now we can build ourselves a dwelling.
But are you tuned to it?
Is there not a longing in you to go back to the earth in order to devote yourself to humanity?
Is it not your will to serve there?
Through the Grebbe-line to Eternal Life, 1942
For Angelica and his father their spiritual dwelling was a temporary place of rest:
In this way every soul has its own longings.
We, Angelica and I, wish to serve here.
And now our longings create a spiritual dwelling.
The spirit of light, which feels God’s holy Life and is tuned in to the laws, only builds a spiritual dwelling when there is love, maturity, and that consciousness in him.
It will be our place of rest where we can retreat to and lie quietly.
Angelica and I have now experienced this.
We have tried to do everything to make you happy, to give you wisdom in spirit.
We have now sat down for a while resting happily, in complete harmony and joy, thinking back on what was achieved.
Our work is finished, our task is over.
Soon we will continue as well, you have already felt that, and we will enter the second sphere.
Through the Grebbe-line to Eternal Life, 1942
In the spheres of light people build a spiritual dwelling with their own life aura:
When we got the wish to settle down here, our aura thickened and as a result of this our house built itself.
These miracles take place as if by themselves, however, they are caused by our feelings and thoughts.
Everything which you observe in and around our dwelling is owned by Angelica and me.’
Through the Grebbe-line to Eternal Life, 1942
However, that dwelling is only a temporary meditation spot:
‘When the feeling comes to us to go higher, then we walk to the second sphere.
Our house will then disappear of its own accord.
If we want to settle in the second sphere, we build it up again.
I already explained to you that we only do that when we consider this necessary.
If we have work to do in the sphere of the earth, or a task to accomplish in the hells and have to spend many years there to serve and to progress in spirit, we do not need a dwelling.
Here in the spheres we can enter where we like, after all; every dwelling is open to us to offer us rest and the opportunity to meditate if we need that.
Through the Grebbe-line to Eternal Life, 1942
Like the dwelling, everything in the sphere of light is built up by the life aura of the inhabitants.
Since they radiate light, the sphere is luminous.
If they were all to leave the sphere of light, the sphere would dissolve, because the sphere consists of their collective light:
If you are not there, then this light darkens.
If you go away and you go from the sphere to the earth, then we see that you have gone.
Because the light will be able to darken.
We feel: one human being, millions of people go to the earth and are busy.
They free themselves from the spheres and they take their light with them.
You must take that with you.
Your house dissolves at the same moment.
You elevate your temple, your space, your art, your feelings, your motherhood, your fatherhood, your flowers, the love for Mother Nature, love for the birds, love for the human being, for the character traits ...
Are they open?
Then you see all of that built up in your dwelling, in your garment.
And if you go to the earth – or you go to the dark spheres – you want to serve something here on earth, for example, you help a doctor with a technical wonder, a technical human being, isn’t it true, arts and sciences, you are busy, then you withdraw your light from the spheres; and we see that.
I see it.
Millions see that.
Can you feel this?
And then, when you pass over – we all go from the Spheres of Light, everything is empty – then you see the heavens becoming hazy.
In the way the sun sets, the sharp, clear light from the Spheres of Light becomes hazy, because the human being has passed over.
You are that.
