I am here, Samuel:
I am the same Samuel who has written you before and told you of my home in the Celestial Heavens. Tonight I want to say merely a few words about the love which I see that you have to a large degree. You must continue to pray to the Father and have faith. There is no reason why you may not get this Love in your heart to a degree that will put you on the same plane of soul development that is your intention.
Of course the trials and worries that you may have with earth life will interfere with and retard your soul development a considerable degree but nevertheless if you will pray continually and let your faith expand you will be able to get the soul development that I speak of. I am glad that you and your friend find such interest in discussing the truths of the spirit life and especially of those things which pertain to the soul development. The communication which you had tonight did you both much good and increased your conceptions of that the truth is in regards to these matters. I only wish that others would get into the light as you two are, for if they would there would be an increased spreading of these truths and mankind would be much benefitted.
I will not write more tonight. With all my love and blessing,
I am your brother in Christ,
