In this lifetime, we are responsible for building a conscious bridge between this dimension and the world and experience of God.

The Activities of Invisible Helpers
262-2 Sunday 11/01/1964
Discusses human helpers in the inner worlds, those who help souls who have recently come across. Servers help people who were like themselves when they left this plane. Part of their restitution is to welcome and prepare these souls. Helpers of newly transitioned souls with difficulties (suicides, murderers, murder victims) may take person to sanitaria for healing of inner bodies. Humble helper, a human being who has gone into the higher worlds ahead of the rest of us, is only allowed to help for two generations of humankind. He must know all the circumstances that this person who has newly died has been meeting. After two generations, that's impossible, as our world and its inventions progresses so fast, so; swift turnover of servers of this type. Other helpers work praying for similar persons yet on earth, helping them bring forth new developments for good.
Man's Memorial to the Eternal
280-1 Sunday 05/30/1965
Quotes Werner von Braun on immortality. Cites atheistic scientists conversion to Christianity and belief in immortality via instrument recording exceptional brain waves of woman at moment of death. Intones names of friends and family no longer in physical plane, and with the congregation, sends remembrance and love to them. We believe that life is continuous. It expresses in the body and out of the body. Memorial Day, when it is known from the deepest point of view, teaches us that life is eternal; that love is deathless; to 'Lay hold on eternal life.' We need to so live every day in living time, that we are alert, aware and attuned to the glories of the everlasting.

She then shares numerous insights from the book The Cry of a Bird, by Dorothy Yglesias.
Music is the Gateway into Divine Presence
396-1 Sunday 07/20/1969
Flower explains music as a path to higher consciousness. Most persons feel it on the astral; can be used to cleanse heavy emotions. Can step into mental bodies and be analytical. We can step into our soul bodies; this is harder to do; when we listen with our causal body, instead of the music being out there, and we observers, we are instead participators. On causal level we are one with everything we appreciate, and therefore when hearing great music it sounds through one. Describes thought forms, colors and archetypes seen while listening to musical excerpts. Describes inner music at transition to inner worlds.

There Are No Dead
