Chapter 89 - The luminous rock from the source of the Nile.
89,1. When all of us had arrived one by one at the top of the mountain already known to us and had taken our places, old Markus with his wife and his children came to Me and implored Me to stay the following day with him as well, since it would be too painful for him if I were to have already gone away from him before sunrise.
89,2. I reply: “Do not concern yourself about that! I can go or stay, time does not rule Me; as I am also the Lord of time and of eternity! Time never floods over my head. Nevertheless there are still many places which I have to and shall visit; but I am not concerned about a given day or a particular hour, when I have found true, living love.”
89,3. Markus says with tears in his eyes: “O Lord and Father, thanks be to You for Your very gracious attitude! May Your holy will alone prevail! But, Lord, the night is very dark because the heavy clouds have obscured the sky. Should I bring torches up?
89,4. I say: “Leave things as they are, We will arrange for light!”
89,5. I then call on Raphael and say to him: “In the centre of Africa, where the high Komrahai Mountains stand and the first source of the Nile bubbles from a rock, you will find beneath the boulders, at a depth similar to the height of ten men, one stone the size of a person’s head. Bring it to Me, as it will sufficiently illuminate the night for us! After you have brought it here, place it on this bare tree trunk, so that its light will radiate far and wide to illuminate the whole area! The reason I have spoken to you now as I do with mankind, was in order that the people should know what is going to happen and recognise My power through the exercise of My will.”
89,6. With that Raphael disappeared, but immediately returned to us like a flying comet carrying the stone shining brightly like the sun.
89,7. But before Raphael could place the stone on the designated bare, hollow tree-trunk, several people wanted to inspect it at close quarters.
89,8. However, when Raphael brought it closer to them, nobody was able to look at it because the light was as strong as the sun striking the earth on the shortest winter day, and therefore too intense for the sight of an eye made of human flesh eye. Raphael had no choice but to put it on the chosen spot. From there its powerful light illuminated the surrounding area so well that one could still pick out objects at quite a distance.
89,9. It is easy to understand that Zinka and his people, especially Zorel, hardly dared to breathe because of their pure astonishment. Zorel tried very hard to say something really sensible about it. He was however unable to say anything at all, because his thinking, still very much based on mathematical stereotypes, was now being exposed to logical impossibilities by the rapid collection and revelation of the stone and its violent light, none of which his own experience or his scientific knowledge was able to explain. Firstly he had been in Egypt several times with his female slaves, and once he had even spent a few days travelling beyond the Cataracts. He therefore had some appreciation of the distance to upper Egypt since even with good camels he always required about five to six weeks’ travelling time to reach the Cataracts.
89,10. According to his calculations a hurricane would take three days and an arrow half a day to cover the distance. - What speed must the boy have reached, to cover a distance certainly three times longer in only a few moments! If the youth is a spirit, how could he carry matter, and how could that matter, itself of the hardest type, be protected from destruction by the friction caused by the air?! It does not comply with the laws of nature! Then there is the completely heat-free light, as intense as the sun - that simply can not exist! Our experience has ever uncovered anything like it, except perhaps rotting wood, but this really only produces such a dull light that, in the night and even at its strongest, it scarcely matches the light from glow-worms!
89,11. Zorel thought about it for a while and said afterwards to Cornelius and Zinka: “This I want to call a real miracle because something like this has never occurred on earth before! What type of stone might this be? From the beginning of time until now, no stone like this has ever been discovered before! What value must this stone have for an emperor or a king, provided that its light does not dim after a while! On the extensive African coast-line reaching far beyond the Pillars of Hercules, until the region where the lower slopes of the high Atlas Mountains greet the Atlantic Ocean, one can also see here and there very white, and during the night at certain hours in late summer, very luminous rocks. However, their light does not last for long, and if you take one of these stones into a dry room, its luminosity quickly fades away and the stone therefore becomes of no value. This stone seems to have quite a peculiar background! It will surely never lose its light and must therefore have an incalculable value!”
89,12. Cornelius says: “Not only because of its luminosity, but much more because of the way it was brought here! But let us leave it for now! Tomorrow during the day we will be able to investigate and assess it much more easily than today. Our eyes will be less sensitive in the sun-light than they are now in this very dark night in which the heavy clouds are blissfully promising a heavy country downpour. But let us now be silent since the Lord will begin to fulfil the promise He made to us down at the tables!”
89,13. With that Zorel is content and is now all eyes and ears.
89,14. Now Ouran comes to Me and says: “Lord, what will happen to the stone tomorrow, and will its light continue to shine?”
89,15. I say: “With this question you have really expressed the wish to own it for your crown! But this is not possible; because the disappearance of this stone could cause major, very destructive wars to break out. Therefore My angel will take it back to the place from which he collected it and that will end any dispute for good.”
89,16. Hearing this answer, Ouran is fully content and returns to his place.
89,17. Cyrenius says however: “Lord! As a present for the Emperor this luminous stone would surely make a powerful impression.”
89,18. I say: “This is quite certain, but in the end it would in that place also, because of its excessive value, lend its light to the promotion of war, and that would be quite terrible! A few particles from it you can have, - but certainly not the whole stone!”
89,19. Cyrenius says: “But how and in what manner does this stone have the power of luminosity? What is its name?”
89,20. I say: “These stones do not actually belong to this earth, but are only to be found in the great solar world. Now, in this solar world large eruptions occur from time to time, releasing forces which are totally immeasurable in your terms, and it quite often happens that these stones are caught up and hurled with enormous force into the wide space of creation. And there you have one of them!
89,21. Its luminosity originates from its in your terms highly polished surface, on which a constant hail of flashes of lightning rain down, their heat energy revitalising anew the spirits trapped within the exceedingly hard substance. In addition, this stone is transparent to the highest degree, and therefore even the innermost spiritual activity is also easily visible in the outward phenomenon of its luminosity. In turn, this is of course increased by the external activity of the rapidly moving spirits of the air as they glide over the highly polished surface of the sphere.
89,22. These stones are not however found in the sun in a natural state, but are produced by the skilled hands of the people living there. They are mostly found, already in a spherical shape, in areas with large bodies of water and they always originate with eruptions. Mineral elements which are molten to the highest degree are propelled far into the space filled by the ether and in that free space they always form round drops shaped by centrifugal force and striving to achieve their rest position which is the law which governs all matter.
89,23. The return descent of these spheres, which can be of very different sizes, often takes days, weeks, months and often, with the larger ones, many years, depending on how far they have been thrown from the sun. Some fall on to the mountains of the sun or its rocky surface and are smashed; but many fall into the great bodies of water, remain undamaged and are easily retrieved by the people of a solar world. The people of the sun can easily stay under water for many hours and work on the bottom of the sea as if on dry land, and this task is made even simpler, as in addition to their almost amphibian abilities they also possess exceedingly effective diving aids.
89,24. If a large sun-house has been provided with enough of these spheres, they can, despite already having very smooth surfaces, be smoothed and polished diligently and skilfully to the point where they start to give out light during the process. Once polishing has progressed to this point, they are placed on purpose-built columns in the many long underground, catacomb-like corridors, where there is always a strong draught. In this way they give more than sufficient lighting in these walkways and at the same time serve to decorate them in a special way as they are particularly admired in a solar world; where quite frequently a completely ordinary residence is far more richly decorated and ornamented, especially internally, than the Temple of Salomo in Jerusalem. It can therefore easily be understood, that the sun people, particular those in the middle ground, also do everything possible to decorate the underground walks.
89,25. However, we are not gathered here to compile an earthly description of the great solar world, but with the aim of strengthening your faith and your will. In order to achieve this, we need something other than an earthly description of the great sun world however precise and comprehensive!”
89,26. Cyrenius asks: “Lord! If this luminous sphere is more compact than any diamond, how can one loosen a few granules from its surface, particularly as I am very keen to have some as a momento of this evening?!”
89,27. I say: “Sometimes you still think in quite an worldly way! In the place where this ball of light originated, there are still many more, whether now in Africa or on the sun itself - for My angels the distance is immaterial. Of course no mortal can break off a few granules from the ball of light without destroying it, and if he were to smash the sphere, its pieces would immediately lose the property of luminosity, whereas small unbroken spheres will always keep that property. But now, seriously, enough of this matter!”
