"THE GREAT INSTRUCTOR"

An address given by the Christ messenger Zodiac through the deep trance mediumship of Miss Winifred Moyes,
at the Zodiac Circle, 15 Nightingale Square, London, SW12, on Saturday, 5th February, 1927.


"O perfect Mind of Love, we thank Thee with grateful hearts that Thou hast shown us something of Thy Love in our daily lives. Grant that this knowledge may expand, that we, loving each other, may be able to throw out our thoughts of love upon others, and they, catching the warmth and the comfort of our thoughts, may in turn release that mighty power within and spread its radiance on those around.

"O Christ, how can we thank Thee for what Thou hast expressed to all mankind; how can we offer to Thee even that little which shall express the mighty debt we owe to Thee! Most loving Friend, explain to us as we go on how wide a thing is friendship, how strong a bond is brotherhood; and grant that we, Thy little children, because we love Thee, may be able to express something of the gift of love to others...

"Help us, O Father, we entreat Thee, and gather us this night under the protection of Thy o'er-shadowing wing, where we may feel we are protected from the enemies within and-without...

"Continuing our work in faith, in perfect confidence that what is given to us is the very best, once more we thank Thee for Thy unlimited gifts... Amen...

"...My little children, when we meet together in this way, can you understand that your tender thoughts, your wish to get closer to Holy things, that this, as it were, opens a channel between you and the realms which are Spirit? And there are many this night, as always, far from you as you judge distance, who delight to send of their power into this little room, receiving not only the joy you give them, but indeed the blessing of the Creator Himself.

"Blind it seems at this stage, so limited, so hedged in by that which is physical, but when the body is no more, in conditions of Spirit you shall see what you have wrought by faith, though children in understanding.

"Yes, faith seems afar off to some. They have gathered other tools which, for the time being, appear equally useful and have powers more tangible than that of faith. But anon today passes and is gathered up with all the yesterdays; and the time comes when they stand alone and the consciousness creeps o'er them that they were betrayed by that which seemed to mean so much.

" - 'Faith' - cries the man bound by the world 'it is a delusion of those who have not cultivated their thinking powers!' 'Faith', cries the weary, troubled man of toil, 'each day brings its sorrows and God seems far away!' 'Faith', cries the aspiring soul, 'it is my all, and while I strive, so I see that faith works miracles beyond the mind of man!'

"This, my children, I have ever taught you, but I have underlined that faith without effort is asking without giving aught in return. Faith with effort, with the wish to serve, with that quiet dedication of the real you within, that is a gift not only acceptable by the Father, but it enables Him to do that which He longs for most - to give to His little ones those gifts which never pass away...

"And so tonight, dear children, because we know whom we serve, who is the controller of our lives, I speak to you on: 'The Great Instructor'.

"And I build up in your minds some faint image of the task He undertook, when, laying aside His power, His Godhead, He came as a little child amongst mankind and they received Him not.

"Children, the task which lay in front of the Master of all - who, though Master, from the earth point of view was controlled by the world and killed by the world - the task which lay before the Shepherd was so gigantic in its nature that you and I, looking back over that which is called ancient history, we marvel how one could have dared to attempt so much. And if you remind me that He was God, then in turn I remind you that as man He triumphed, for He had laid aside that which represented His real Self.

"Oh, think you, as you go your daily way, how you would feel if such a call came to you. Picture that young man in His humble dwelling, with those around Him who had watched Him emerge out of helpless childhood into a measure of independence; how, first of all, He had to conquer their minds and to win not only their love but their willingness to believe that He was the Teacher sent to reclaim, sent to restore. Aye, think of it - so difficult it is amongst those familiar, how quickly the retort comes: 'But who are you to instruct!'

"Yet Christ started His work, started that which should bring the redemption of the world, with the little home circle and the friends beyond...

"And then, dear children, this great problem faced Him: Who to choose? - Who to choose? The little life of the body is soon worked through and He had come to save the world.

"My children, cannot you imagine how brave a man was the Master when He walked amongst those who were strangers to Himself, and called to them by His Love, not only to spread the Truth but to work for and to die for the Truth? And then there was that greatest test of all - to have faith in the Truth after the Truth in Person had passed from them...

"The Great Instructor looked amongst the crowd. And the people of that time can scarce be imagined by you in this age of order and arrangement whereby each, in a measure, is free from the other. In those far off days, as I have told you before, there were the few in power and there were the masses who fought an unending struggle to procure the necessities to keep the body for its daily toil. Yes, in that far off time we were face to face with a million problems which long since have been solved, so far as this little corner of the world is concerned.

"There was the constant warfare, one against the other; there were the differences of so-called Religion which made barriers impossible to surmount; there was an unbridgeable gulf between those with the possessions of the world and those without; there was the Law - an all-powerful weapon - which was used and abused on every side.

"Yet, the Great Instructor came amongst such as these with His message of Love. The Great Instructor faced hate in a hundred forms, yet such was the power of His Love that amongst the masses - the so-called common people - there were thousands who loved Him if they could not grasp that He was the Lord God of all.

"And then, dear children, we think of those whom you name the disciples, and in regard to this, some of my children have questioned why the word 'apostle' is not used by those who come and speak to you in this way (Spirit-communion).

"Well, dear children, in God's sight all are His children, and the only division is as this: There are the hearers and the doers; yet, as I speak, lo, those who heard but did not act, they have passed a span farther on and they are doers as well as hearers of the Word. Never forget that this is worked out, and must be, because God's Love rules all. The hearers today are the doers tomorrow; and when they act, what form does their action take? Why, my children, to spread the good news so that others may hear, and, as they hear, arise and become doers too.

"So we come first of all to those you name the disciples. They heard the Great Instructor and they pondered on His words, they had their ties, their friends; more than all, in their veins flowed the blood of those who had been bound by a thousand chains, and tradition had them in its grip in a way you cannot fathom because of the freedom of thought which appertains in this time.

"Yet, they listened to the Great Instructor, and because He spoke of that which seemed so sweet, because He laid down a gospel of Love in place of that of domination and control, so they pondered within, and as they thought so the Spirit - which had been fighting long before - so the Spirit was able, in a measure, to guide and to lead them out of the past into the unknown future...

"They listened and they loved. Oh, believe, dear children, that as they listened so they loved, for that which you name the emanations of the real Self reached far beyond the body in which Christ dwelt. Their hearts awoke and their minds threw off the bondage which had held them, and because they loved so they drew close, watching and wondering and hoping that it all was true.

"That is a point which many have overlooked. Children, when good news comes after a night of suffering, there are many who hesitate to believe it, for they are afraid there is some mistake. This was the attitude of the followers of the Master as they listened to Him, for what He taught was so contrary to that of the priests and the elders, the scribes and the Pharisees. He taught the 'humble heart', the little acts, the obedient will, while those of the world had passed on a message which was different in every particular.

"The Law of that time as regards the religion of the land, it was movable, it was buyable, if the sinner had within his possession sufficient to make excuse worth while; the greed, the avarice of those in high places is inconceivable to you, my little ones, who are content with little and love the simple things of daily life.

"Yet, as I speak, you can gather that there were the few who hungered for better things, who were conscious - although they could not frame it in words - who were conscious that these teachers were somehow betraying God. And such as these gathered round the Christ, and as He spake to them - so tenderly, so clearly, yet with that which you name the humour of the mind - as He spake to them, as the children they were, so joy filled their hearts, and the only shadow that was upon them was the question: 'Is it true?'

"They watched and they loved; and, again, as they watched, so the love within their hearts gathered to it reverence; and, again, as they watched, so the love and the reverence grew, and that you call 'awe' was added as well. For He was mighty who was so humble, He was holy in a way that Holiness had never been presented to them before.

"Children, you can imagine their sensations when those skilled in the things of the world, with minds sharpened by suspicion and fear, when these came to the gentle Stranger and sought by every means to prove that Truth was false; how they watched and marvelled at the replies which came so readily, for remember this: They knew not that the Spirit within the body had been released. They feared for Him - was that not like love? They would have hidden Him from the mighty ones, they would have 'protected' Him, as the children in understanding that they were...

"And then the pride which came from devoted love. They saw that the Master was able to answer even those questions framed with all the guile which those experienced in the Law could call upon. They watched His patience, they looked from the Beloved to His enemies, and they marvelled that those enemies were not won over by the love which the Master showed so plainly. And, little ones, there were those amongst His hearers, skilled in the knowledge of the earth, who fought down the love within their hearts because that which you name jealousy claimed first place...

"The Great Instructor taught and taught and taught, but He knew that very little that He said could penetrate into the physical mind at that stage, so unprepared were His hearers, so unused were they to getting beyond the narrow confines of that which they named the religion of their day. But did the Master withhold His words because so many must fall on shallow ground? Nay, little ones, He spoke at all times, when He was weary, when sleep should have rested the fragile body, at all times when those gathered to Him, drawn by love, He put aside His weariness and spake again.

"And then we come to those who carried on the great message of Love. The one who is dear to your hearts, he told you that had Christ's words, as spoken, been preserved, that ere this the Kingdom of God would have been upon this little earth.

"And Paul spoke a truth, for He suffered much and accomplished much. Yet, dear children, can you understand that out of this loss so God will bring gain? For the hearers and the doers tried to follow the Master's instructions to the letter, as their minds had grasped the teaching He had left with them.

"And when Love was taken from them so far as the body was concerned, these, His children - aye, children in a sense you scarce can grasp, unversed in this, ignorant of that, yet controlled by their desire to do as the Master had bidden - because of the power of the Holy Spirit, so, as these simple men spoke, the Truth - that measure of Truth which the physical mind could not grasp - poured through them and brought conviction to thousands who listened.

"They were greater than they knew. They were vessels used by God Himself to pass on that which was His will. And because the Holy Spirit was upon them, so, as they spoke, the limitations of the physical mind gave way and the spirit, with its knowledge, its unuttered wisdom, was poured out upon the waiting throng.

"Yet, dear children, as you have been told, that was not possible in regard to the written word. There are many so placed. As they speak so they are inspired, so they are instruments used by those who have passed into enlightenment; but with the written word, there was the battle between the mind of the body and the mind of the spirit. And those with discernment, in reading the Sacred Record, can put their finger on the freed vision, and on the mind which still held its fetters because its owner lived in a physical world.

"And then there was this: Before writing the words so they talked together, they consulted and they consulted; and I am directed by the Controller of us all to emphasise that when men talk together, rarely is it possible for the spirit to take that freedom which it desires.

"And remember this: They wrote the words for a people chained to tradition, bound by laws, steeped in that which you name superstition, and all the furniture round the Lord God Jehovah, who demanded much that was precious of the possessions of the world to be conciliated to His own. As they wrote, so they considered within themselves this interpretation and that, and at times the Spirit triumphed, and at times, in little ways perhaps, the mind of the body took first place.

"Yet you say to me: 'Does not this make it all the more wonderful that these few followers grappled with such difficulties, that so limited and so restricted they were able to do so much?'

"Children, your love for those you name the disciples of the Holy One is as a gift which renews itself to them day by day. You say to me and you say to them: 'Oh, speak not against that which you accomplished, for to us you are sacred by the sufferings that you bore.' And they answer, using me as their spokesman: 'Little children, we have seen the Light. Little children, we have watched All-Holiness at work. Little children, the Great Instructor has given us of that wisdom which is of Himself, how then can we do aught but mourn, for we have seen Reality, and our efforts, our accomplishments appear as nothing!'

"Yet again you say to me: 'How does God regard them?' And I answer for them as for myself, that the all-Generous Father has blest us and blest us and blest us. He has denied us nothing. But, children, does not this again come back even as agony to the spirit which is within, to think how much we take and how little we gave; to think of the love we have called out from so many during the earth stage, our gifts, our treasures?

"Ah, little ones, with sight you will understand. You love us, and those with names so familiar, they take of your love and thank God for it, but they, as others, say because it is true: 'We could have done more.' And as I speak, the child I use feels even as a mother who would protect her young. Another gift because it comes from love, and love comes from the Great Source, and once more we raise our hearts in gratitude to God. Yet, little ones, we could have done more if we had understood what manner of thing was Life and the unending future which lay before us...

"So, to you I speak as an instructor used by the Great Instructor, and I tell you - because God's Love passes the imagination not only of the physical mind but even of those who are most advanced in that wisdom held out to all - I tell you that the Great Instructor delights in your efforts as He delighted in ours; and His message to you and to all is: 'Pass on the Love of the Father for His children and forget it not'.

"And as we think of God's Love for us, so, within us, part of the Great Instructor regains some of the Light which it had lost. All-Wisdom seeks to teach and guide and uplift, and we, because of this freedom, we talk to others; we pass on the privilege of the gift and they - at first hearers, then thinkers - become doers, for the Divine within has instructed the mind of the body how to act.

"This, little ones, is the great chain which was started in a time long ere this little plane was thought of in the scheme of things, amongst peoples inconceivable to you, in states and conditions which one day you will explore, yet which are hidden even from your imagination at this time.

"That chain started with the hearers, the thinkers and the doers, and there has always been the few, perhaps at times the tiny few, who have held to God and who have sought to instruct others as to the gift of holding to God. And these, in ways so ignorant - and, as it would seem to you, so ineffective - these, in turn, out of their limitations, have instructed others still more limited; yet out of their limitations they spoke and gained a measure of freedom which, at this time, has so expanded that they are, as you would term it, angels of the Most High.

"The Great Instructor is in our midst tonight, saying to you, saying to me: 'My love for you it changeth never. Go to the outcast, go to the sorrowful, and pass on to them the gift that thou hast taken thyself.' This is our work, and this work when you are free will be seen as sacred indeed. The world calls with many voices. The Voice of God it holds first place, and He sends us amongst the bound, the imprisoned, and those overwhelmed with the troubles of life; and we, as instructors in miniature - we are used by the Great Instructor to release, to inspire and to comfort; and only the comforters have interpreted the message aright.

"Oh, my children, let not your hearts be sad over the responsibilities of this work. Go back to the past and think of Peter, and how through the ages Peter has shown that the frail can be strong, that the impetuous can be patient, and that a courage can be built up which nothing can assail. Go back over the past and think of the boy Stephen. What did the mind of the body know? Very little, dear children, very little. But the Great Instructor was within, and boy that he was, as he stood up to view his enemies, so the Waters of Truth were poured through him and he saw his God...

"Children, I name but these two, because from the world's point of view perhaps they were the least equipped for the great work that they undertook, for when Stephen's body was destroyed, so his example was written across the sky of time, calling to the young to be brave and to fight for Christ.

"Those others, equally loved by you, they knew not what they were doing, but in the measure that consciousness had come to them, it was the obedient will. The Master had left the Truth with them, and because love held they could not betray. The Master had warned them that suffering must be their portion, and when the so-called blows fell, they gloried in the thought, for the wisdom within showed them it was another link with the tortured One.

"My children, you ask again and again why these great and holy ones come into your presence and seem to delight to converse with you. I say it is memory, memory of the past. They give, holding nothing back, and all they ask is that you should feel towards them as you would to a loved friend, to one who would not fail you in time of need, one who understood you through and through. Not as saints, not as figures silhouetted against time and reverenced and hallowed because they kept the faith. Nay, little ones, that makes barriers, but say within yourselves: 'Such as these, so limited, so restricted, so bound by earthly things, they carried their cross, and I will carry mine too'.

"That is the link, and, as you go your way, remember always that Christ not only rules over the great worlds and the spheres beyond, but Christ is your Companion and is the One who loves you best of all. How then could He forget you? How then could He forsake you?

"Yet, because He gives so much, seek to raise the standard of your gifts to Him, for as you aspire so you are drawn closer into His Holy vibrations, and, in the measure that you rise, sorrow in its many forms is kept beyond your radius. For Love conquers all, and sacrifice is joy, and burdens they are possessions.

"Linked to Christ by service as well as desire, by aspiration as well as His generous gifts, so you can pass through the clouds of physical life, conscious of the Sun which shines from Him upon you, certain that if you stumble He is there to save you ere you fall...

"The Great Instructor without and part of the Great Instructor within. How then, my children, can life offer terrors or distress of any kind? You are bound for that Home which is not of the earth, and each experience you surmount, holding on to faith and asking not that your burdens shall be taken from you - each experience brings you nearer to the desire of the spirit within.

"And out of All-Brightness so brightness comes, out of All-Love so love fills your very being; and as pilgrims in very truth you leave behind you the sweetness of a life well spent, and others, catching its fragrance, shall be inspired to climb as well...

"That is the instruction of the Beloved of our hearts - His promise and the certainty of fulfilment - for you are part of Him and He claims His own; and all that He has is ours when we are ready to take of that which is Holiness itself.

"Now, my little ones, I will leave you. You give to me that attention which indeed is a gift more beautiful than the flowers which, to you, furnish this little room. So as I speak I take, and as you take so you give, and all is complete. And now I go..."

(Others then spoke...)

JOAN OF ARC...

"...It is the one you call Joan of Arc, and I come, bringing in my hands, gifts, which one day will be made your possession... I speak to my sisters here. In my hands are the gifts of sight, of hearing, and of revelation; and the Lord God of all has bid me tell to my listeners that these are waiting for them in the time to come. Tonight, I have things to say, and I have prayed that I may speak clearly even though I go back on the past.

"In that time as a child, I heard much. The countryside, as you describe it, was a fairy palace to me. I dreamt dreams, not of greatness but of beauty. The waters which ran so merrily over the stones, they called out to me: 'Good morning', and 'Good-night'. The leaves, as they swayed in the breeze, they echoed the song of the wind, and the wind cried to me: 'Little maid, be strong'. And the trees answered: 'Look at my strength, how firm am I'.

"That was my childhood, and when you speak of 'voices', it is a matter of degree. At times, in the twilight, they called from all sides. Again, even as to the child Samuel, came the imperative voice of injunction to arise... I lived in the world, but those not of the world, they held me fast.

"This evening, by God's mercy, I come to speak to you all, and to Louise (Owen) I am instructed to pass on that which shall bring to her heart reassurance for the days to come. Sister, look back over the past and the fate which befell me. Yet, because these days are ordered on a different plan, you shall pass over dangerous places and bear no wounds upon your body or in your heart. There is the voice which calls you out of the darkness of the ignorance of even these enlightened times, and the voice is this: One word - 'Christ' - one word alone.

"As I stand here, remembrance is recalled of what followed on so swiftly in my life amongst strangers, far away from the quiet hills and the happy woods. I placed not my faith in man, yet I sought to keep faith with man; and those of my day, they forgot in times of success, yet my God forgot me never. And, as I speak now, so the rush of joy comes back to me when again and again in my loneliness, my solitary position, the cloak of Love was wrapped round me and the voices bid me take heart again...

"The Past is past, but the voices remain forever. The past held what to the world seems as treachery, but to me the past is glorified by the present... As I stand here, once more in a physical body (of medium), I can feel the breeze from the hills blowing upon me; I can feel my sense of suffocation in the palaces surrounded by pomp and the things of the world. Yet, even there, so the guidance was maintained, and because I too was allowed to keep the faith - simple, ignorant as I was - so the Great Instructor, as it were, turned down a page of the book of life upon earth, and the love-thoughts, the kind thoughts have reached me from thousands and thousands...

"I was promised to come tonight, and already I begin to feel as though we are one. I have prayed for this, dear sisters - that you should hold out your hands to me as a friend. I showed myself, by the grace of God, to another sister who, to you, seems far away (Mrs. Thuillier), but I gather up her spirit and I bring her into these conditions, and the link is held intact...

"Courage, faith and love: In each life on earth or in conditions beyond the earth, that is the equipment of us all, and I send to Violet - Sweet Violet - the same call which came to me: To keep the faith and to falter not though enemies may assail. To keep the faith and to be certain that God keeps faith with her at all times and under all conditions...

"Next time, I shall be different - more at ease; but there are many links between us. The promise made that I should come has been kept; but the promise goes on, and because those who fight - so it seems, alone - need the voice, so I come to Louise, to pass on the message from the Great Instructor of us all...

"In those woods and up on the mountain-side, the one I use tonight walked alone, so she thought, but I was there (Vosges?) Strange paths, a strange people, sadness of heart and weariness of the limbs; but in that time, though the skies seem to mourn with her, so the link was made. It was my little bit of France, and I found the instrument there that I should use...

"So God works, and so the voices still direct, and so the future justifies the past, and so on every side we see God's Love in action...

"Sweet sisters, you wonder as to my speech, but in those conditions which are Spirit, the language which we desire comes to us as readily as we ask. In coming back into the body, keeping my promise, I have spoken in a language which was foreign to me. It has been an effort, nothing more. I have spoken to your spirits and you have talked to me about your wonderful thoughts of God; but in coming back into the body, unless the will is firm, the old memories catch us and we lose, because we have put - unwillingly though it may be - our habits before the desire of those who listen...

"Oh, remember this: That it is better to speak three words in a language understood by all, than to give most valuable advice in a tongue uncommon to them...

"This is the future: Slowly we mount. There, laid out around us, are those things which are called obstructions and obstacles. A little further on there is what has been called the Plateau of Peace... Through struggle it is mounted, and from that point of vantage we look round on the plain of our life, and we measure it; and then, remembering our instruction, we raise our eyes to God, that over us is the Protector's Light. Once on the Plateau of Peace, the struggle is over. In front lies work and effort, construction and building, laying foundations and still firmer foundations - but the peace remains, and the voices cry: 'Onward and upward, for Christ is there'...

"I want you to try and love me in spite of my reserve tonight. We are out on the same great work; we have been through experiences - different perhaps - but just those necessary to produce the preparation for the future. We are linked together by a thousand ties, and when I come again, I want to tell you about a vision I had away from the village, up on the hills, and how I interpreted it, and how God kept faith with me until the very end...

"And now I must go. I was here last week, I have been here many evenings long before you thought of me in this connection; but tonight is my big night, for I see it is the beginning of a communion which will never cease.

"Good-night, and try and remember that sometimes God calls those in very humble places to be His representatives on earth..."

(Note: Last October when Mrs. Thuillier was saying good-bye before sailing for India, the medium saw with her what she took to be a guide who had built up in shining armour. She described it as a 'knight' but added 'yet it is not masculine'. Mrs. Thuillier said that a few days previously she had seen Joan of Arc in her room and was sure it was the same spirit. Messages have since come through Marjorie Rowe saying that Joan wanted to speak at the Zodiac Circle, and she was asked to speak in English.)

MRS. GRANT...

"...It is old Mrs. Grant. I hope you won't mind my coming again. It seems rather an impertinence when these young ladies are here, but They asked me to speak quite confidently and to be sure that you would not mind... Perhaps I ought to explain because you may have forgotten. I was just a working woman, and when old age crept over me I was taken to the workhouse - the infirmary, and I passed out on what was called in fun 'The Rubbish Heap'. I just mention that to remind you who I am.

"Well, Mrs. Moyes, I have been sent tonight to speak about experience. It sounds rather funny for me to talk on such a big subject, for as I have told you, as a girl I lived in the country and I didn't know much about experience until I came to London; but then, as we should have said, it came like a ton of coals, and it was just as useful.

"You see, I didn't understand, yet at the back of my mind there was the remnants of a teaching, if rather strict still a great support, and this teaching was summed up in one little text: 'Thy will be done'. I used to wonder sometimes why God's will always seemed connected with sorrow, but I dared not question it, for if I had, I should have felt I was wicked. 'Thy will be done' when my baby died, and when my husband broke his leg; and when, in winter-time, want came so close, it was always: 'Thy will be done'.

"When I passed out, in my old age, and everyone seemed so kind, I found that I could ask questions without feeling I was committing a crime. And there was a very beautiful lady - you will smile if I tell you who she was; her name was Queen Victoria - and she came to me... and sat down by my side, and she said: 'We were both old women and so we can talk together without any reserve'. Of course I didn't know who she was, but she reminded me of the Queen. Well, I did pick up my courage and I asked her about God's will, and she explained to me.

"She said: 'Don't confuse God's will with our hardness of heart'. I thought over that and I said: 'Will you explain a little further?' And she replied: 'God's Love and God's will is that His children should show love and compassion to each other. When anyone goes hungry or when they are in trouble and no one is there to help, that's not God's will, that's the hardness of our hearts'...

"It was another view altogether, Mrs. Moyes. She left me for I felt I wanted to be alone, and when I went back over the past - and we had many troubles - and so plainly it came to me how I had been misjudging God. And then, oh, you will never guess - someone who looked like an angel stood before me. I was very frightened at first because it seemed to me that my thoughts perhaps were not pleasing to God. But this wonderful stranger took hold of my hand, and I said: 'Where am I going?' - for I was afraid. And she said: 'I am going to show you what you can bear of God's Love'...

"I thought I fell asleep, and when I awoke I was taken into what they call: 'Family Life'. It is one of the most beautiful conditions over Here; you have to be very advanced before you reach that state of harmony when you have purchased the gift of perfect home life. And do you know what these people were doing? You couldn't understand the conditions even if I could explain them - but these people, all-glorious themselves, were devoting their powers to those on earth who were the outcasts of the world. And they said to me: 'It is Christmas-time; just watch and wait'.

"And when it seemed as though I went back over a period of time, and there were the individuals who had responded to good thoughts - you know: 'I would like to do something for somebody this Christmas-time'. And those who were free, who loved them, were keeping that thought alive. And then there was the transformation scene - the delight brought into the little homes where dreariness was before. The wonderful angel said to me: 'God's will has been done'. And she showed me hundreds of other illustrations as well - in the hospitals and the infirmaries, in the prisons and the reformatories, when one showed an act of mercy - and mercy, of course, is part of love - then the angel said: 'God's will has been done'.

"I hope that perhaps some of those who have hard lives will, when they read this message, think of God in the right way, not do as I did - confuse the will of God with the hardness of our hearts.

"That is all, but you will like to know who the angel was. Well, it was the one you have forgotten quite, and yet she is often among you - she was the one who poured the ointment on our Saviour's head (Note: Matt. 26:7). Yes, and she is smiling so sweetly and she says: 'God's will has been done tonight'.

"Good-bye. I feel you didn't mind my coming... I feel full of happiness, and so young that I long to work for you all. Good-bye..."

(Zodiac returned and continued...)

"...Well, dear children, I can but echo that God's will has been done on earth tonight; and I want you to feel that you, as instruments, have been used just as your Saviour desires, and that the seeds sown, one day, will show strength and beauty, because out of your little you gave freely of your best...

"Oh, my children, never forget when the voices come that if they say to you: 'This is good enough' or 'That will do', that those voices come not from the Great Instructor within but from the destroyers without. You, little ones here, are protected in a way you cannot understand, but when you pass hence sorrow will claim you if you called upon that protection for anything but the Christ within. That is what the children of the earth are reminded of again and again.

"God's care in a million, million forms is around the individual life, but so often the protection is stolen for that which, in itself, is antagonised from God. Claim protection for the Divine within, keep the close contact with your Father and Mother God, and though the enemies of the earth may strike, lo, your armour is complete.

"And when that wisdom which is within is strong enough and free enough to function through the mind of the body, so then with sight you will look back over the past and thank God for your burdens, thank God that you prayed for the protection of the spirit and not for protection from those experiences for which you entered physical life.

"And yet, dear children, I would not cast a shadow over the brightness of the future, for I should be falsifying Truth as I see it. I have told you, instructed by the Master, that before you as an avenue, opening wider and wider, is the scope of this sacred work - your precious opportunity, your privilege of service. So, dear children, if the trees at this stage cast a shade across your path, remember that it is but a shade, and no obstacles lie between you and attainment except those which you erect yourselves...

"I bless you in the name of All-Purity, All-Holiness, All-Love; and I ask you to hold fast to your precious treasure which is the desire to keep close to the One who loves you best. That desire has been purchased by you in the past - it is the greatest possession ever gifted to anyone...

"I bless you with the desire to hold close to the One who loves you best. God at this moment is increasing that desire, and the link between the Father and the children is as complete as you, little ones, at this stage can make it; but remember that in front lies the unlimited, and at each stage rise to the highest and cling to the best...

"Peace, understanding; understanding, peace, and they are one - God's gift to the aspiring soul...

"Goodnight, my little ones."

The Greater World was originally established purely because of the Zodiac Messages and their introduction into earthly life by the Christ Messenger Zodiac and the further revelations of the Christ Mission expounded therein. The inception of the Greater World was for the preservation, as received, of the Zodiac Messages and the prudent dissemination of the spiritual philosophy, consequently perpetuating the incorruptibility, distinctiveness and uniqueness of the Zodiac Messages and the teachings contained therein.
