of Light. Zora is able to act thru and on the
body only with the agreement and aid of the
Two. The wider and more harmonious this agreement is, the better for both Zora and The Two.

It is better for the Two because Zora has
such great wisdom and intelligence, and is
able to give the Two help in so many departments of life. The Two who is in close association with Zora is the Two who can do so much
and so well. Zora is very wise, and has so
much knowingness to draw from, that he can be
of inestimable value to the Two who will accept
and use his help. The degree of agreement between Zora and the Two is determined by the
Two, Zora is always willing, even eager, to
help, but help can come only to the degree
that his help is accepted by the Two.

Zora is the helper, guide, and friend.
(Continued in the next issue)
FTER several sessions with the board, we became aware that Nine was laying out a
glossary of terms, two of which I wish to
discuss now. I am not going to weary you
with the question and answer routine which
is used on the board. It is, at best, a
clumsy and inadequate method of communication.
& question would be asked and an answer given,
but sometimes much clarification and rephrasing was necessary to get at the heart of
the matter. Whole sessions would be spent on
one word or phrase.

One of our questions dealt with the phrase,
"body, soul, and spirit". Nine said it referred
to the triple nature of Man. Man is a two-fold
Intelligence in a body. He is not the body. He
just uses the body.
"Spirit," said Nine, "is the Intelligence
Or Entity from the place of Light, which we
shall call Zora." Hereafter in this writing,
when the word "Zora" is used, it is this spirit, or being, which is meant.

Nine said, "Soul is the first mind, t h e
Intelligence native to this three-dimensional
world." Our souls are the duty of Zora. We
will call this soul "the Two"; so in this writing, "the Two" means the soul as used here.
The body is the fleshy envelope which is built
at the behest of the Two to house him in. The
board called the body "the abode".

The Two and Zora are beings which are indestructible and separate. Nine says, "Nine
cannot emphasize too strongly the separateness
and individuaifty of Zora and the Two" .

Zora is a being from the Place of Light.
The Two is the native being, the indestructible soul of this material universe.

The laws which govern Zora and the Two are
Tho the mental torments of the second, or astral, plane can be extremely severe, perplexing, and confusing, actually the pains suffered
on earth are the most intense, the time span
of which is necessarily limited.

The redeeming factor here is that the rational mind is more ponderable than on the
astral plane, where it becomes quite crystalized if the soul has not advanced beyond materialistic fixations. Without help from souls
on higher planes, an astrally-trapped entity
finds it all but impossible to pass out of
that plane. The astral plane is alluded to as
"hell", but earth itself is the true hell. Its
inhabitants are captives in a prison of grossest matter and intensely tempti g flesh.

The earth state as of now is far from ideal.
Darkness, illusion, and ignorance saturate the
environment and atmosphere. For this reason,
strife, disorder, confusion, illusion, ignorance, and disease stalk the earth. The greatest
urgency is for earth-bound souls to become
aware of their true makeup and being, to get a
true orientation with spirit, the true life,
source, and being, The body must no longer be
confused with the true self-identity of Conscious-Spirit, individualized. Life must not be
attributed to the organism. The true SelfIdentity must be understood and recognized.
