In Search of Wisdom: Part II – Chapter 2

THE PICNIC

Reg led the way on to the green, and there, in sight of the sea, a great crowd of people had gathered. From the wood the children were coming with arms full of fruit and bread-stems. Others were carrying jugs of fruit-juice. The children, we were told, had already had their feast, and . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Part II – Chapter 2

PART II – OUR VACATION CHAPTER ONE: WE GREET THE SEA

Our homecoming (for that is what we called it) gave us the keenest pleasure. The first thing we did was to hurry off to our own little house. Janet cried out in delight when she saw the pink chestnut drooping over the slatted green . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Part II – Chapter 1

FAREWELL

We pondered on the Fifteen Secrets as we walked, and at last Janet said: “Why did each Secret have a special angel?”

Our guide looked very pleased because she had asked this question, as though he had been longing to tell us all the time.

“Each angel has a Secret, just as each angel . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Chapter 6

THE HAVEN OF PRAYER

“While you are still in your double-power,” said our guide, “it would be good for you to learn a little of the Father.”

“Is it possible?” I gasped. “We who are so little and so low in Heaven’s realm?”

“It is possible for you to learn a little.”

“Is it-rather terrible?” . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Chapter 5

WHEN THE KING CAME

We were silent for a long time in happy absorption and then our attention was attracted to a faint sound coming from the other side of the lake. It was thin and clear, like the voice of a young boy. Nearer and nearer it came, and gradually the little ones stopped . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Chapter 4

ANGELS’ PLAYGROUND

“As we have been speaking on the glorious subject of purity”, said our angel, “how would you like to visit the playground of the baby angels?”

Janet and I laughed delightedly at this. It seemed so sudden a contrast to the recent solemnity of our thoughts. “Is it possible?” I asked.

“Perfectly!”

“But-baby . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Chapter 3

THE GARDEN OF THE LORD

“Oh, how wonderful it is to be here !” Janet exclaimed on a breath of rapture.

“We have seen so many wonders,” I added, smiling at the memory. “We have seen men receive their Stars.”

“Have you seen anyone receive the Virgin’s Crown ?” asked our guide.

“No. Does a . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Chapter 2

A JOYFUL NOISE

“Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands,” sang the angels in the heart of Heaven’s realm. “Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His Presence with singing. Know ye that the Lord He is God. It is He that made us, and not we . . . → Read More: In Search of Wisdom: Chapter 1

THE GREATEST JOY OF ALL

How eagerly I watched Him as He walked into the dazzling glory of the light! How I yearned to follow as the majestic Figure began to ascend! Then, coming clearly into my mind, as though spoken into my ear, came the words: ‘He will not leave you comfortless.’ . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 12

STARS

At once two men came to stand beside him. I caught my breath at the sight of one of them. It was Richard, whom we had seen so long ago receive his first Star ! Janet, too, had seen him. She turned to smile at me, as though to say, ‘This is our friend, . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 11

ANGELS’ SONGS

Before our dazzled eyes there appeared an oval of golden light. It seemed to rotate with rapidity, sending out spears of shining rays, and then, as I looked intently, the focus of my vision changed and I saw an angel standing in the midst. He was tall, and of great beauty, his eyes . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 10

THIS WONDERFUL PLACE

‘I would like to see how Rose and Greig are,’ Janet said. So we set off to find out if they had arrived. The ranks of those in white tunics parted for us as we went among them. Everyone seemed happy to have us, looking respectfully at our rich, green robes.

‘Isn’t . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 9

THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY

Almost at once, Janet came to us. We said little concerning Rose, for Reg had already told the news. Besides, a matter of far greater importance (yes, even than the arrival of our beloved guest of the Plane Between) was occupying our minds. We had been summoned to the Hall of . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 8

SURPRISES

When we had said farewell to our guests from earth, Reg declared that he was hungering for some sport with Robbie in the Hall of Adventure. His only doubt was Robbie’s whereabouts. At once I reminded him of the power of his thought. ‘Now is your chance to try it out!’

‘Suppose Robbie has . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 7

ON THE MOUNTAIN

While we ate, Greig and Rose came in for a good deal of teasing, but they were much too happy to mind. Greig explained that he and Rose had met on earth and in fact, knew each other well.

‘We did not know about this however!’ he smiled.

‘Row could we?’ Rose . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 6

HIGH ADVENTURE

‘I remember this!’ Ronald cried as we reached the sea. They all stood looking at it hungrily, revelling in its peace and beauty. Behind us a great rock rose high above our heads, its jutting edges sharp and glistening. We leaned against it while the waves ran smoothly up over the sand, foaming . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 5

PUZZLED

Now I am going to decide the next journey.’ As I spoke we began to speed off over the valley. We travelled so swiftly that we had reached the highest mountain before Reg replied.

‘Where is it this time?’ He looked down with interest on the snow covered peak.

‘That is a secret!’ I . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 4

REG’S FIRST CHARGE

It was in solemn mood that we set off on our return journey. We were not unhappy; far from it, but a new aspect of the tremendous plan had been shown to us. The upward climb of the learning, developing soul had been revealed as of such vast proportions that we could . . . → Read More: In the King’s Service: Chapter 3

THE MISTY SCREEN

When we at last reached our destination we moved forward over the parkland at its entrance with intense interest. It was laid out like a pleasant garden with walks, flowerbeds and seats set here and there.

‘It looks as though there has been a visitor from the Hall of Gardens,’ Reg exclaimed.
