On this planet the good the bad and the ugly are all here together and you are stuck here with the barbarians and the savages but when you leave this world your vibration will be your passport to the hereafter into the astral plane. To enter the higher realms of the astral worlds your vibration must be high enough to pass through the divine fencing. In the empire of the higher luminous planets where finer spirits live the souls with lower vibration who want to enter are blocked and those who dare to move towards those higher regions would be instantly shocked or ‘astral-ocuted’ by the astral fencing higher voltage of astral power to keep out unfit souls who don’t belong. Likewise as the fish swim and live in the water, the birds fly and live in the air and the worms beneath the earth, the fishes, birds and worms cannot continuously live out of their watery and earthly environment.
When a person sheds his mortal frame and goes through the door of death into the hereafter, he continues at the same level as his pre-astral life and does not become an angel. If you were angelic on earth when crossing over the abyss of death you can certainly enter the superior environment of the heavenly spheres. Angelic like souls reside in the finer vibratory environment in different regions of the astral universe according to their virtues from pre-astral life on earth.
One of the disciples of the spiritual master was given an astral vision while he was sleeping and was shown these places and not that there is anything wrong with this kind of job but he felt like a garbage truck driver among the high society. He felt so out of place because the vibration was so pure, it was so unbelievable where he was, he cried, cried and cried to stay with them but he just couldn’t stay he was not fit to be with them. When he awakened he said, “You have no idea of what is awaiting you, for the eyes that have not seen, the ears that have not heard and the heart of men that have not felt what God has prepared for those who love Him. Our greatest punishment in life is that we are indifferent about God.”
How do you acquire devotion for God when you don’t know Him? Unless you develop it by daily spiritual practice and by remembering what is the first commandment and love God with all your heart, mind and strength. If you follow everything else but don’t love God you will not succeed, pride will take over. How do you acquire devotion? By being loving, kind, sensitive, service-full and forgiving to people. Your everyday behavior determines how much the love of God will flow through you. If you want to be able to love God, manifest that love in serving people, there is no other way. As you begin to expand your self more and more to others and begin to care for people then your heart of hearts begin to gradually enlarge and the channel becomes purified by that which flows through it. You cannot know God just by selfishly meditating. How many people go to caves in India to experience ecstasy but don’t want to help people, they will have to be reborn, the master says, in the midst of everybody and learn to serve people. That love is not just for you, it is to pass through you and by passing through you in the degree you allow it then it will transform you. When you are able to take the thorns from the hearts of others and place those thorns upon your own heart you will be forever free of all self-seeking as ego consciousness only wants something for itself.
