I am here, Helen:
I am very happy and you are a little better, and there is no need to worry about Nita as she is now very happy in her school. I will try tonight to tell you of what I am now doing in my new home and in the earth sphere, where I am most of the time helping spirits.
Well, in my home I am so very much engaged in studying the laws of communicating with you that I have hardly time for anything else. I am now quite certain that I understand how to talk to you in an independent voice and also to materialize. So you must not be astonished any time to hear my voice or see me in the form of a materialized spirit. I am also trying to help the spirits who are in a condition of blindness and doubt.
I am living with your mother in her home, but I am not as spiritual as she. We are both very happy though and have everything that a heart could wish for.
My home here is much more beautiful than that which I had in the Third Sphere, and everything is beyond what I conceived when I lived there. The house and trees and flowers and fruits are very much more beautiful and delightful. No one could be anything but happy in such a home.
We have nothing to interfere with our happiness and everyone is a delightful companion and full of love and beauty. I have met many spirits that I did not know either on earth or in the spirit world before I came to this place, both men and women.
Yes, we have rivers and lakes and fields and mountains and all the beautiful landscapes that you can imagine. I not only enjoy these things, but they are more real than those of earth.
I am sometimes engaged in painting these flowers and landscapes, and have many pictures which others painted. I find that I can paint with a more artistic touch than when on earth. I have no trouble in drawing as you know I had some in my earth pictures.
I am also studying music, and especially my vocal lessons. You will be much surprised when you hear me sing as you cannot conceive what a different voice I have. Sometimes I try to sing some of the songs that I used to sing to you, but they are not pretty in comparison to the songs we have here, either in the music or the sentiments.
The music is so beautiful that I cannot describe it to you and even the love, which helps to make the music, is of such an intensity that you could not possibly understand if I should attempt to tell it to you.
Spiritually, I am now in a sphere that enables me to know what the love of God really is and that in His love I have almost complete happiness. I have gotten rid of those things. I now love everybody and am trying my best to help every soul that I possibly can. Feelings of dislike or envy or hatred have no place in my heart, for which I thank God.
Well, as you are not so much interested in my description, I will not attempt further portrayal of the things here. Yes, I can see it in your brain - you are thinking about other things, so you see, I know. Yes, but you must think of what I write for that is necessary in order for you to write. While I can guide your hand, yet I have also to use your brain to express my thoughts. You could if you will try. That is one of the things that I want you to do, for then you can hear what I say at any time and it will not be necessary for you to write.
Yes, it is better to presume what I write for sometimes it does you good to read over what I have said and feel over again the emotions which you felt at the time of your receiving my messages.
I love you all the time and you know it, but sometimes it is beneficial to reread my expressions of love, even though you doubt that they are mine. Let me tell you that you are not to remain in this state of doubt much longer, for I will so indubitably show my presence to you that you will never again doubt that I am with you.
Then when you write you will feel that I am, indeed, writing as convincingly as if I sat beside you and you could see me. It may happen any night as you sit and write or when you are lying in bed thinking of me and wondering if I am really with you. So you must be prepared to have anything happen which will show you that I am with you. Yes, I believe that I will be able to do that when you are all alone, and so you will hear my voice when you are alone.
No, this is the most satisfactory means of communicating that I know of. You can exchange your thoughts for mine, and can write so much more than I could possibly speak. Yes, I will be able to speak for a little while at a time, but not as I write.
No spirit can gather such power as would be required to continue to talk for any length of time. Even Bright Star, who is an adept, could not carry on an extended conversation, as she says.
The power that I now have enables me to manifest myself in several ways, such as the independent voice, materialization and writing. I do not know about the slate writing, but I believe that I can do that, too. At any rate, I will try to accomplish it sometime. I don't think that I will be able to manifest on the same night in an independent voice and also materialize for each manifestation requires great power.
Yes, I can knock on the table, but that does not give any special satisfaction -- all earthbound spirits can do that. It is the lowest order of manifestation. We, of the higher spheres, do not care to do that if we can manifest in any other way, and I would rather not try it.
I mean that I am stronger physically, spiritually and mentally than White Eagle. I do not know the exact extent of my power, but the spirits with a better knowledge of these things say that my power is so very unusual that I can do most anything that I may try. Of course, they mean within reasonable limitations. I could not take a mountain and move it, or even a very heavy substance, but I could lift you and will some time just to show you how strong I am.
I mean by having more powerful mentality that I have progressed so very much in knowledge and in my will power. I am not yet a wise woman, but in a certain line I have acquired a great deal of knowledge as regards, for instance, the way in which spirits and mortals while in the flesh.
I am not any more versed in the science of what controls the heavenly bodies, or why one star differeth from another in glory, or what are God's mysteries as you may consider them. These matters are being investigated by other and older spirits. But as regards love, both of God and spirits and mortals, I have learned a great deal.
Let me tell you that of all subjects that should interest men, love is the greatest. For love is the fulfilling of all law and the man, who knows what love is, I mean the real, genuine love both for God and his fellow mortals and spirits, has that which is not equaled by knowledge of anything else in all the Universe.
