The constant ebb and flow of fortunes in the spiritual struggle on Earth between the incarnate Youngest and Eldest created most unfavorable conditions for mankind. The Youngest were prevented from leading humans forward in a straight line—from letting them, as far as possible, follow the slowly rising cultures so that they might mature both inwardly and outwardly. And so the Youngest had to change tactics and (as earlier said) had to raise their personalities to a disproportionate degree above humans in order to attain at least some favorable results by being able to stand their ground against the incarnated Eldest and defeat them in the course of time. Culture for the average human being has thus only often been a forced veneer, a facade that shatters easily on the least occasion and allows the true nature of the human being—the human animal—to reappear. Especially in later and most recent times, this disparity appears all the more glaringly incongruous against the background of apparently advanced spiritual culture in so many countries—a culture, however, sustained only by a minority which it will take ordinary humans hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years to attain and to assimilate.
Should the Youngest cease suddenly their incarnations in future, a universal stagnation would result and human beings would then have to rely, for as long as possible (page 264 in 1979 edition), on that already given them of invention, natural sciences, poetry, the arts of color, form, tone, and of much more, until the Youngest would again be born among them, for humanity will not in future be given anything new of importance through the genius of the Eldest. Those Eldest who have been incarnated since Ardor's return in 1912, are all incarnated under God's direction, and their genius is, by His Will, withheld, so that they cannot become pioneers and innovators in the earthly world. They will in everything appear to be only ordinary human beings.
Over the course of time, the Eldest ones have become divided into three groups:
1) Those who first repented of their sins and of their fall and who then returned to God’s Kingdom without ever being incarnated. They never will be incarnated, but (as said earlier) are atoning for their sins against human beings by helping their younger brothers and sisters lead mankind towards the Light.
2) Those who, after a few arbitrary incarnations, remained in the ruined kingdom. However, some let themselves be incarnated by the Elder from time to time so as to assist him in his evil designs on humans, and especially against the incarnated Youngest. These Eldest—many at present incarnate—will in times to come be incarnated under the leadership of God, to atone in new lives on Earth for their sins and their crimes against humanity.
3) Those to whom life in the ruined kingdom became intolerable and who, without cessation, continued their unlawfully begun incarnations. These have now progressed far enough that all have—long since—submitted to God’s direction. The divine element bestowed at conception on each future human being has been of much help to them, since with each earthly rebirth their darkened spirit has received a spiritual plus whereby their struggle toward the Light has been considerably advanced and facilitated. But they still have much to atone for before they can return to God’s Kingdom.
As the many thousands of Eldest presently living on Earth, incarnated by the Elder, gradually “die out”—are released from their physical bodies—they are brought to distant astral abodes in one of the other three “Milky Way” systems. There they must remain until remembrance of their fall and of their many sins awakens, whereupon they will be incarnated under God’s direction in order to make atonement and to rehabilitate their personalities. When the last of Ardor’s still “living” helpers departs mortal life, in about 50 to 60 years, humans will be free of the last tie that binds them to their creators. The faint spiritual current62 that infused the creatures from the Eldest during their attempts to create, disrupts the moment the last earthly body of these Eldest expires. Ever since the first appearance of human beings, this current has imparted to their astral counterparts a faint spiritual life so as not to subject them to the perishability of Darkness.63 Once this current is broken off, God will be released from His promise to His first repentant children: to let a divine element merge with the spiritual life bestowed by the Eldest, thereby to allow humanity to partake of eternal life and to release the counterparts so that upon death of the human body they can be dissolved and absorbed into the Darkness from which they were formed.
Thus: when the current from the Eldest ends, God will create no more spirits. The human spirits will then constitute a completed whole, with no further addition of new beings. But in order to ease the journey of His many children to His Home, it is God’s intention not to break off the divine stream of Light that flows from Him to humanity but to allow it to continue to infuse them all, so that in future human spirits will still receive with each new incarnation a further spiritual plus from God. By this precious gift the spirit is endowed with ever-increasing strength and power of will, an invaluable help on the difficult journey. However, millions of years must yet pass before the younger and the last-created human spirits can be released from life on Earth.
The number of incarnations for the human spirit varies widely. It is not the same for all, since the number depends on the individual’s free will toward good or toward evil. Human spirits who during their incarnations have been directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of many others, whether through murderous or other unfortunate means, or who as earthly rulers have exposed their subjects to death in wars of conquest or religion and in family feuds and so forth, must experience many more incarnations to atone for these many deaths than those not guilty of such crimes. The most a human spirit has been bound to the Earth and its spheres before release from further incarnations is about three million earthly years, the least about one and three-quarter million years. This includes the years for rest and learning in the spheres. Many of the first, the oldest human spirits, have long ago been released from further incarnation and are continuing their journey on globes in the distant galaxy opposite the Earth’s Milky Way system. Here they slowly mature under the tutelage of God’s Servants until they can enter God’s Kingdom, there to be received by their Father.
These spirits will never return to the Earth to participate in the work of the Youngest, a task for which they are still too immature even though their will toward the Light has overcome Darkness. And when after millions of years they have reached the goal of their journeying, their help on Earth will be superfluous since by then there will no longer be any human beings on the globe. The last humans will have left this first stage of their journey to continue it on the distant globes.
The reason the human spirits, after release from life on Earth, are brought to the Earth’s neighboring galaxy is that most of the globes in the Earth’s own galaxy are contaminated by Darkness. Should God call forth life on these globes it would have to be similar to that on Earth—a life of Darkness in worlds of Darkness, which could only hinder and oppress the human spirits. When these spirits are released from life on Earth, they will therefore fully and forever have dissolved the bonds of Darkness and will belong only to the Light and to the worlds of the Light. The Earth is thus the only globe within its galaxy that supports living beings.
Although Darkness can never bind human beings as fully as it did the Eldest—for the higher the spirit that succumbs to Darkness, the deeper and more lasting its fall—the power of Darkness over humans is nevertheless great, inasmuch as they arose from the Darkness. But through the will for the good, and with heartfelt prayer to God, all can gradually free themselves from the heavy yoke of Darkness. The more the will is directed to the attracting power of the Light, that much lesser can Darkness exert its influence. Moreover, since Darkness no longer has discarnate “servants” to bring humans under its magnetic power, all who sincerely desire the good and the true will find it easier to avoid its influence in times to come.
For the present though, the few who submit completely to God’s guidance can be counted as one in a million and many generations must pass before the spiritual weapons of love, justice and tolerance can gain victory over the murderous earthly weapons by which nations and peoples settle their many disputes.
In numerous areas and in all possible ways the incarnated Eldest have drawn mankind downwards and harmed and opposed the work of the Youngest. From remote antiquity when they were first incarnated, the genius of the Eldest has been employed to serve the Darkness.
Through written works on the natural sciences, philosophy, literature, and fanatical religion they led people astray and away from the paths of the Light.
Many of the inventions that have brutalized humanity and have led to destruction, torture and death are mainly due to the Eldest—the weapons of destruction of ancient times, the many instruments of torture, the invention of gunpowder, the first firearms, and practically everything else of this nature that has evolved from these beginnings up to our times..
A few of the inventions of explosive and destructive substances that have been brought forth with intent to benefit humanity are due to some of the Youngest who in their existence as humans were led astray by the Elder.
But not only the Eldest have hindered the Youngest in their work, human beings themselves have time and again proved to have no understanding of and to be hostile and unreceptive to the gifts and the truths the Youngest have tried to bring them. Rarely, if ever, have God’s emissaries been understood while they still lived among people on Earth. Not until the passing of one or more generations have the Youngest normally been even partly understood. Again, this goes back to the fact that what they presented was too advanced to be comprehended by the immature human spirits, who even in the most advanced civilizations and societies have always been in the majority. During their human embodiment, the Youngest have thus often been somewhat isolated. Time and again they have faced scorn, anger, hatred and persecution. Many have suffered painful death inflicted by humans as a reward for their self-sacrificing work, their patience and perseverance, and for the unfailing love with which each sought in every way to overcome Darkness and the influence of the Elder. Only the love and thanks of God, their Father, given after each completed incarnation, has helped them bear the suffering, sorrow, disappointment and scorn heaped on them by the very beings for whom they sacrificed so much.
Whether human beings will over time come to better understand and appreciate that brought them by God’s emissaries, and whether they themselves will contribute to a development whereby the culture of the spirit and the culture of the heart can in common follow a straight path towards the Light, must for now be left in abeyance—perhaps for centuries—before humans can answer it, as it should be answered.
But for human beings themselves to be able to take up the struggle against Darkness in earnest—not only against the Darkness harbored within them, in their thoughts and feelings, and against that which everywhere surrounds them in the earthly world, but also against the Darkness that threatens them through the ether-recordings64 of the Elder—they must first of all learn tolerance for one another’s opinions and points of view, since tolerance is the basic element of love. If people in smaller, closer-knit groups learned to yield to one another instead of deriding and mocking one another, tolerance and then love could the easier be extended to the many until all mankind—sooner or later—would stand united in the common struggle out of Darkness.
This applies first of all to the intolerance among the leaders and followers of the higher religions, for it must be remembered that the spiritual values of greater or lesser merit imparted to humanity in religious life have been given only in fragments, often at long intervals and always to some extent distorted65 by the Elder, who always and by all possible means has tried to obscure the pure and absolute truths to prevent humans from gaining any precise knowledge. But those who wish and who are able to draw parallels between all religions from the earliest days to the present, can find some of the truths of the Light in them all, often repeated in somewhat different forms, but all more or less obscured by man-made dogmas and couched in human thoughts and misconceptions.66 No religious body, therefore, has the right to maintain that only it offers salvation, that its followers alone are the chosen, that they only shall inherit God’s Kingdom and be granted the glory and happiness of eternal life. Nor has it the right to denounce and be scornful of others who think and believe differently. Such narrowness, such self-assertion at the expense of one’s fellow-beings is the gravest of religious delusions. Eternal life belongs to all who wish to accept it; God’s Kingdom is open to all; every human shares in God’s love; to all He shows the same patience, the same compassion; not to a single human being does He ever close His heart, and to none does He shut the gates to the Paternal Home. To God, the Creator and Father of the human spirit, it matters not what earthly belief the individual professes, only that humans in mind and in heart, in thought and in action should live according to their faith, and not merely observe its outer forms or cling to its man-made dogmas or to that dictated by habit or by ritual, and of no spiritual value at all for eternal life. Only that which calls upon, evokes and maintains the best, the noblest and the finest in human thought and feeling, has permanent worth for the individual.
No more than God forces a particular religion upon anyone, does He demand honor and worship in any prescribed manner. Every religious community has the right to conduct gatherings and divine services according to the forms and rules in greatest harmony with its adherents’ perception of beauty and of the exalted. But none have the right to promote the form of worship accepted in their own community to the detriment of all other forms, as if it were the best and only way for the congregation to honor its God and Father and commune with the divine. All worship should be voluntary, without coercion of any kind, neither in one or the other respect, for whether people gather in temples, churches, auditoriums or in their homes, God hears always their songs of praise, their thanksgiving and their prayers when their thoughts and devotions are truly heartfelt.
Not only in religious faith should people learn to yield to each other and to tolerate one another’s opinions and points of view, they should also in social and political life seek common ground, seek in fellowship to cast off the yoke of Darkness, so that the journey of all towards the distant goal may be accomplished more favorably than hitherto.
How can humans themselves help toward the achievement of this task?
First and foremost, by never acting against their better judgment, by always heeding the inner prompting of the conscience and by teaching the coming generations to strive for truth, justice and peace on Earth.
In bringing up new generations, women have a special task which many in recent times have partly or completely neglected whilst taking up the cause of equal rights with men. It goes without saying that a woman has the right, according to her ability, to take part in social and political activity, provided she has no young children in need of her care. Motherhood brings attendant material and educational duties that suffer because of obligations and tasks assumed outside the home.
Every woman should know that by giving birth, she also answers for her children's spiritual growth.67 It is the mother who influences the formation of the young child's spirit; it rests with her to weed out with patience and unfailing love the shoots of the seeds of Darkness found in each child's mind; it rests with her to develop and to form the child's perception of the good and true in life and to instill abhorrence of all that is impure, of falsehood, violence, taking the law into one's own hands, and to regard all warfare as abominable.
Every mother should know that after her mortal death when she must account for her life on Earth, God will first ask: “How did you bring up your child, what spiritual values did you implant in your child’s soul, and what example did you set by your own conduct?” Many a mother has ashamedly had to answer: “I neglected my child, I left the spiritual upbringing of my child in the hands of others, and, through my own conduct I set my child a poor example!” It matters not that such a mother can add: “But I gave much of my time and my talents to my country and my community.” God’s answer will then be: “You have not benefited but harmed your country and your community, for you have neglected and failed to honor the human spirit that was entrusted to your care, and through your negligence you have given your country a poor and useless citizen.”
Mothers who bring up their children to be truthful, just and peace-loving citizens benefit their nation much more than those who leave maternal duties and education of their children to others in order to participate in social and political life.
The father also has a great responsibility in bringing up children. First, he must provide for their purely material needs; but if the children are many and the mother’s health is delicate, or should she die, leaving under-age children behind, then the responsibility for their ethical upbringing rests with the father.
Both parents have a great responsibility, not only for the direct but the indirect rearing of the children, as both have the task of making life in the home as bright, peaceful and harmonious as possible. Next, it is not only the parents' task but their duty to keep all dispute68 between them away from the children, as nothing is so destructive to the young generation as a discordant home. When people enter into marriage, in whatever manner this takes place, both parties must realize the responsibilities they bear towards the future generation. Husband and wife should, as far as possible, be at the same social level and have enough common interests and spiritual kinship that they can build a heartfelt and lasting friendship on this, so that they are not tempted, in the course of some years, to part. People ought never to enter into marriage under compulsion or with the reservation that it can be dissolved, as divorce should be the very last resort. But if it is quite impossible for husband and wife to yield to one another and live together in peace and tolerance, then lawful divorce has its legitimacy for the sake of the children, as they are then far better served by being reared outside the home, or living with the least guilty of the two parties.
Parents should strive, both directly and indirectly, to give their children the best possible upbringing, and not permit them to suffer the consequences of marital strife and discord, so that the coming generation69 may be endowed with a pure, bright and tolerant disposition, and so that in all circumstances of life they may remember their home with happiness, and from the memories of their childhood derive strength to resist the temptations in life and the ways of Darkness.
Equally important to the upbringing of children is legislation. Humans can themselves help improve conditions on Earth by enacting well-chosen laws that restrain not the free will or compel anyone to act against the best and the noblest within them. Coercive laws of any kind laid down by leaders and rulers only promote the power of Darkness and hinder the advance of the Light. There must of course be laws to regulate domestic and international affairs, but if these laws compel people to act against their inner convictions or their conscience or if they impede the natural development of the free will, such laws will only be destructive and the rulers will have abused their power.
Among such coercive laws must be regarded, for instance, compulsory military service.
As long as military service is only “peaceful”, the outdoor exercise and the discipline can often benefit body and spirit, provided the military leaders act humanely and do not cause degradation and demoralization by abuse of their authority. But when war games turn to grim reality with soldiers facing living masses who will become fodder for their cannon, sabers, bayonets and other weapons, and they know they will maim or kill many, then most must go against their inner conviction to act in the manner demanded by the leadership of their country. The best and the noblest in the spiritual lives of such persons is often destroyed, since in order to deaden the rising abhorrence for their actions they let themselves be gripped by the din and fury of battle and act blindly so as to avoid thinking of the horror before them. Such people should never be forced into combat, since usually it is they who, in the confusion and degrading turmoil of battle, unnecessarily commit the worst, and the needless, atrocities.
But as long as military service is compulsory, it is of no use for individuals or groups to refuse to comply with the duty demanded by a country’s government since such insubordination only harms the disobedient and in no way upsets the existing order. There is but one thing to do: submit to the duties imposed by society, even though they clash with one’s innermost feelings. The individual then stands with a clear conscience, while the responsibility for forcing such actions on others rests with those who originate and enforce such laws.
The repeal of these coercive laws must begin with the leaders, the legislators, the rulers. When they realize such coercion cannot be in harmony with God’s wishes and purposes, the time will have come to repeal and replace the existing laws with new ones.
As a transition from present conditions to the time when a general and universal peace among all nations is a reality, all military service should be voluntary,70 with no slightest compulsion of the individual, since responsibility for the many untimely deaths, the many murders and atrocities and the destruction is placed by God upon the leaders, the legislators and the rulers, even though the individual soldier—aggressor as well as defender—must account for all unnecessary cruelties of which he is personally guilty. On the other hand, if military service is made voluntary until further notice, then the chief responsibility will be evenly divided among all the participants in war, the leaders as well as the soldiers in the field.
All warfare is counter to the Will of God and in conflict with the laws of the Light and it benefits neither one nor the other warring nation to call upon God’s assistance71 as supreme warlord. Any prayer to God to bless weapons or armies so that under His leadership they may gain victory is therefore blasphemous.
Any conception of God as giving leadership in war must be banished, since all bloodshed, all wanton destruction of property, all attempts to overthrow anyone or anything is entirely incompatible with God’s ways. Again and again God has sought to lead humans to a full understanding of unselfish concern for the welfare of others and respect for others’ property rights. From the oldest times, God’s emissaries have repeatedly called to humans: “You shall not kill, nor take by force, not rob, nor plunder!” But the appeal has been in vain thus far. Human beings have not yet been able to free themselves from the primal urge of self-assertion by brute force at the expense of their fellow beings. As long as the peoples of the nations of the world do not unite and strive toward mutual peace and tolerance, as long as humans cannot, with complete faith in God as the Father, and faith in His justice, place everything in His hands and with trust submit to His guidance, as long as the will of the many is not one with His Will, then can bloodshed, violence and war not cease, then can the hope for peace not be victorious on Earth.
Humans must overcome the influence of Darkness, overcome hatred, curses, envy and lust for power by faith in God’s existence and by trusting His guidance, rather than through prayers for help to crush their enemies and opponents by acts of violence—for God never hears and never answers such prayers.
Could one imagine an entire people united in trust in God, with absolute confidence that no ambitious, envious or rapacious neighbors could do them harm, then even the most evil of designs would collapse in face of such full and unshakable faith. But where is such a people to be found? Mankind is yet in its infancy. Centuries or millenniums may pass before full understanding of such an unshakable relationship of trust between God and humans will come about.
Thus, all warfare is rooted in Darkness and is brought about by the mutual intolerance of nations, in turn attributed to the lust for power of their leaders and rulers. If the human will for evil thus produces hostilities and destruction and war has begun, the nation that initiates the hostilities must bear the responsibility for aggression as well as for the defensive actions forced upon the other nation or nations, regardless of the forms the war may take. And as long as the nation under attack limits itself to the defense of its lands, of its rights, the aggressor will remain in the wrong. But should the defender carry hostilities into the adversary’s territory in order to attack rather than to defend, both sides immediately share the blame for all that happens (this applies to all warfare, on land, or by sea or air).
The victory or defeat of the warring parties can in no way be ascribed to God. Never does God take part in the hostilities, neither on the side of the aggressor nor on the side of the defender. Only prayers for help to restore peace will be heard by God, but His many and persistent attempts to speak to the leaders as their “conscience” are largely ignored.
The victor in war overcomes the enemy only with numerical or strategic superiority and the like, or through its people's common hatred of the enemy and their united will to victory. Never is a victory gained with God's help.
Any individual—civilian or military—who praises, defends and glorifies war in written word or speech rather than evoking aversion to this deed of Darkness and enlightening others as to the degradation and brutality of war, assumes a heavy burden of personal responsibility and must, at the end of the earthly life, account in full to God for the motivations for such actions.
Even though peoples wage wars amongst themselves and even though God hears not their prayers for victory, yet never are His earthly children out of His sight. He seeks either directly or through the discarnate Youngest to awaken remorse among the leaders, just as He tries in many ways to instil in them an awareness of their abuse of power and of the wrong they have committed, so as to bring about a pact of peace before one of the parties succumbs to the superior force. But these attempts are also mostly ignored by humans.
Many of the discarnate Youngest gather where the fighting is fiercest, in order by their presence to minimize the effect of the erupting Darkness and to divert those accumulations of Darkness inevitably drawn to the scenes of battle by the passions unleashed. They come also to bring the thousands of spirits of the slain humans back to their dwellings in the spheres.
The Youngest will also, for as long as there is a state of war, attempt to evoke feelings of compassion and to inspire acts of mercy among those directly or indirectly involved in the war so as to counteract the influence of Darkness.
Patriotic love for one’s country72 is normally a fine and exalted sentiment but becomes ugly and degrading when, aroused by the passions of war, it turns into egoism and self-adulation. Regarding such self-overestimation and smugness, human beings should never forget those men and women who from the earliest times and in the various nations have risen high above average man, and who in the service of the Light have exerted a lasting cultural influence on the peoples of their countries in religion, ethics, science, social matters and politics. These have all been the incarnated Youngest, who, under the leadership of God, have let themselves be born at those places where existed, at that time the best prospects for introducing innovations and improvement. And as even the most developed human spirits have not yet reached such a point as to be able to enrich their fellow humans to any significant degree, either spiritually or materially, nor yet succeeded in raising themselves above the purely human level in spiritual respect, humanity has not the least ground for self-overestimation or self-admiration, but reason only to thank God for the abundance of the gifts with which He has enriched them through His emissaries.
So that no government by the few, nor by a single head of state should in future be tempted through error of judgment or hasty decision to involve their own and thereby one or more other nations in total and destructive war, all states should agree upon a common governing body. It would be represented by all countries and all camps, to act not as a peace conference from time to time but as a permanent authority73 with delegates elected for a longer period of office and entrusted with the power to jointly resolve all national disputes and entanglements. All disputes of any kind ought to and can be settled peacefully and diplomatically. In no way can humanity defend before God its presumed right to settle its disagreements by arms and by force.
If all nations, the peoples of East and of West, would meet voluntarily in a joint effort to achieve a lasting peace, they would be assured of receiving all possible help from the transcendental world under the supreme leadership of God Himself. However, it will be of no use to establish a general world authority until the will exists in full sincerity and accord to fulfill the hope of such an “eternal peace”. But once such collaboration has begun, it should never be breached. The nation that deceitfully disregards such an agreement thereby assumes a heavy responsibility, for every vow broken attracts Darkness to those who deliberately engage in deceit, and the gathered Darkness will draw into reality on the earthly plane the Elder’s recorded images for future happenings and thus for long periods again hinder the toilsome journeying of mankind.
These proposals for a general world authority or international court of law have in various ways been put forward by humans in the past, but without awakening the proper response and understanding.
With permission from our God and Father, this proposal is hereby advanced from the transcendental world—from the spiritual leaders of mankind—in the hope that those who are well placed to advocate and implement some treaty of this nature will heed these words in times to come.
And when the time does come that all humanity in full understanding should agree to enact an inviolable pact of peace, manufacture of all armaments and weapons of war should also cease, nevermore to be resumed.
Through an inviolable pact of peace between all the peoples and the nations, human beings will lay a firm foundation for an effective and a fruitful joint endeavor between the children of the Light and the children of the Earth, an endeavor that will in many ways be a great help to the Youngest in their work for mankind, and benefit especially those of the Youngest incarnated as humans.

65) Even the ancient myth of Adam and Eve has in it some truth, though couched in purely human form. During an earthly existence, one of the Youngest tried through this myth to convey an explanation of the origin of humanity. Adam and Eve thus symbolize the Elder and his female dual; the serpent symbolizes the alluring, attracting and binding power of Darkness; the apple on the branch of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil symbolizes the life-principle of Darkness, surrounded by and held fast by the Light. The serpent represents Darkness which tempted the woman to sin; the woman tempted the man to eat of the Tree to gain knowledge — to master, that is, the life-principle of Darkness. Removing the apple from the tree symbolizes the separation of Darkness and the Light. By their fall, Adam and Eve (the Eldest) were banished from the Garden of Eden (God’s Kingdom). Cain and Abel symbolize the various types of human beings who owe their existence to God’s fallen children. Cain’s murder of his brother symbolizes how sin and death came into the earthly world through the birth, or creation, of Cain and Abel (humanity).
