CORRECTION  to the November Newsletter

In the November Newsletter there was a misprint on page 1 in the article “Works of Art, Acts of Grace.” The incorrect sentence read: Within a sea of perception which we make here (on the earth) in our souls, the memories of the dead are preserved. Please see the correct sentence in context of the paragraph below.

(After death) the soul not only beholds the beings of the higher hierarches and the other human souls living with it in the spiritual world, but also beholds the world of souls to which it was related (ital. added) before going through the gate of death.  A soul in the spiritual world can see our world unaided, without the kind of active effort needed to perceive other beings in the spiritual world.”  The earth world becomes for the discarnate soul the ‘other world’, in which the earthly souls one has known, with what lives in them, rise up into awareness.  “At the same time, within the ‘ocean of spiritual perception’ created in our earthly souls by the spiritual world, memories of those who have passed through the gate of death occasionally appear.  Imagine this very vividly.  Let us suppose hypothetically that we lived in a time when no one could remember any dead person.  The dead would still perceive those human souls – in which no memory of the dead existed.  And then suppose that into “the ocean of spiritual perception” that discarnate souls can offer, memories of the dead now enter.  They live there.  That is something added by human free will and love to what the dead can always see from the other side.  It is something added.
