Text from site 166 in the message "Toward the Light"
When God's children through countless aeons had lived a life of beauty, splendour and joy in their Father's Kingdom, He saw that they had advanced so far in their understanding of the dominance of Will over Thought, and in their understanding of the need to limit the desires of the thought according to the ability of the will to make fruitful and implement, that there was a possibility for them all to emerge victoriously from a confrontation with Darkness. He then decided to set them a difficult task - that of leading spiritually immature beings forward to full equality with themselves.
The beings that God thought to create He would create from the weaker and more material radiations of the Light combined with some of His own divine Self.
Through higher or lower frequencies of oscillation both Darkness and the Light can produce greater or lesser ethereal effects, and similarly lesser or greater material manifestations, both in the transcendental and in the purely earthly sense. In Darkness as well as in the Light there exist, as stated earlier, extremely fine particles; the higher the frequency of oscillation, the smaller are the particles and the greater their capacity for cohesion and adhesion.
Propagation and death were not intended for these beings; once created through God's Thought and Will they should continue to live in a development of constant progress. This development should not only take place spiritually but also physically, since their bodies through spiritual progress should at the same time gain in radiance and beauty as the various stages on the road to God's Kingdom were attained. All sin, all impure thoughts would clearly be entirely unknown to these children of the Light; for sin, as well as propagation and death, exist only in Darkness and in all that it produces. But when they had attained a certain degree of maturity they should be confronted with Darkness in the same way as God's first-created children, that they might learn to overcome its power.
God, His Helpers and the first-created children would make themselves known to them through revelations. All guidance should take place by the help of thought, that is to say, through inspiration and intuition.
In order to carry out this intention, God first had to provide dwelling places for the beings He had thought to create. Since these beings would be spiritually much weaker than God's first-created children, they would not be able to sustain an existence in the radiant Light of God's own Kingdom until through a long process of maturing they became capable of maintaining their individuality, so that on their entry into their Father's Home they would be in no danger of merging again with their paternal origin.
For this reason God conceived and developed the plan for the four star universes or star systems.
The mother suns were formed by God by the power of His Will, setting the ether - the Light and the Darkness precipitated in it - in a rotating motion around four centres of force, which were borne and held by and in His Thought.
Since the Darkness that is precipitated in the ether has a lower oscillation frequency than the Light, the rotation around the centres of force caused it to collect as a core. This core was surrounded by the Light, which spread outward in oscillations of ever-increasing frequency, until there was created about each centre a well defined globe, consisting of a darker core' surrounded by a corona of Light. The outermost layer of this corona, formed by the more rapid and more ethereal-astral oscillations of the Light, is not visible to earthly eyes, whereas the radiations from the precipitated Darkness,' together with the radiations from the more rapid molecular oscillations of Darkness, can be detected and reflected by the human eye.'
The radiations and the concentration of the Light thus increase with rising frequency of oscillation. But only in God's Kingdom does the Light unfold its greatest energy of concentration and radiation, just as the particles here are very much finer than in the other forms of the Light. Spiritual beings are able to see the cores of Darkness of the globes, as well as the brighter, more radiant corona of the Light. Only one of the mother globes will at some future time become visible from the Earth.
The mother globes contain all the elementary substances and all possibilities for life' - seeds from which God by the strength of His Thought and Will can call forth life. And since the four star systems, directly or indirectly, stem from the mother globes, this applies also to all suns (i.e., stars) and planets within these four systems, with the exceptions due to the incursions of Darkness' on the globes in that star system to which the Earth belongs.
In order to understand the motions of the mother globes one should visualize the universe as a picture projected onto paper.
God's Kingdom, an enormous sun formed from the high ethereal material vibrations of the Light, supports and maintains the four star systems as their Central Sun.
The mother suns are positioned in pairs directly across from each other on either side of the Central Sun; when the Central Sun and the four mother suns are all in opposition, an imaginary line passes through the centres of the four suns and the Central Sun.
The mother suns are of exactly equal weight. Each sun revolves on its own axis.
The distance between the mother suns comprising each pair (measured from the centre of each sun) is equal to the radius of the Central Sun (God's Kingdom). The composite orbit of the pairs around the Central Sun describes a perfect circle, whose radius equals seven times the radius of the Central Sun. The circumference of this great circle passes through the midpoint of the distance between each pair of mother suns. The mutual orbits described by the mother suns thus lie halfway outside and halfway inside the circumference of the great circle.
The mother suns balance each other in pairs by equal attraction and equal repulsion. The distance once established will therefore always remain constant.
The individual movement of each sun following its partner around the Central Sun describes an open circular orbit (a spiral orbit) so that the midpoint of the distance between each sun within a pair moves along the circumference of the great circle.
The pairs turn in opposite directions.
If a diagram shows the pair of mother suns (a-b) to the left of the Central Sun and the other pair (c-d) to the right, and with all the five suns in opposition so that a and c lie nearest to, and b and d farthest from, the Central Sun, and assuming that this position is the starting point for the orbits of the mother suns, then a and c will turn away from and b and d toward the Central Sun. The spiral-orbit of the one pair (a-b) thus turns from the left side of the Central Sun to the right side, and the other pair (c-d) at the right turns to the left side. After about three million years, the pair (a-b) will occupy the place of the pair (c-d) on the right side of the Central Sun, and vice versa for (c-d). The complete revolution of both pairs along their common orbit round the Central Sun takes two aeons, which corresponds to about six million years.
Once established, the speed of rotation of both pairs will always remain constant, since they all counterbalance one another at any given moment. The equilibrium between these pairs, with God's Kingdom as the centre, will therefore never be disturbed.
A star system (a "Milky Way") shaped as an elliptical ring moves along with and rotates around each mother sun. Each star system was directly or indirectly spun off or ejected by eruption from its mother sun. (The globes and suns that originated directly from the mother sun have then again, through spin-offs or eruptions, subdivided into smaller globes - and so on). Centrifugal force has caused the globes of the star systems to move in elliptical rather than circular orbits around their mother sun at one focus and an immaterial centre of force (invisible to the human eye) at the other focus.
If the orbit of a globe is to describe a perfect circle around its sun, the following three factors must be of exactly equal strength: the speed of axial rotation of the sun in question, its forward thrust through space and the combined forces of spin-off and attraction that interact at the time of the formation of the daughter globe. If the formation of a new globe comes about through an ejection produced by inner explosive eruptions in the sun globe, the force of ejection in most cases will exceed the force of a normal spin-off process (drop spin-off). The globes that come into being through eruption-ejections therefore move in a more or less elliptical orbit. If the orbit does become elliptical, then an immaterial centre of force will automatically arise in juxtaposition to the material sun. Depending on the shape of the orbit, this immaterial centre of force will be nearer to or farther from the material sun.
The irregular orbit of a globe can also be caused by attraction from other suns.
Similar conditions prevail in the numerous solar systems within the four main systems. Because of the centrifugal force, the suns and the planets' have similarly deviated from the circular orbit to a greater or lesser elliptical orbit around their centre sun at one focus and a centre of force,' equally invisible to the human eye, at the other focus.
If one visualizes each of the four star systems in the shape of an ellipsoid, then one axis will equal 1/7 of the radius of the open circle (the spiral-circle), which the mother suns describe in their specific orbits; the second axis will equal 1/28 of the arc length of that same spiral-circle, and the third axis equal 3/7 of the longest axis.
Since the size of the second axis, i.e., 1/28 of the arc length of the spiral-circle, cannot be given exactly in terms of human calculations, then neither can the third axis (3/7 of the second, the longest axis) show exactly the indicated size of 3/7.
The combined volume of the four mother suns and their related star systems represent 1/7000 of the Central Sun, God's Kingdom.
The number of globes is limited at any given moment - the opposite would be in conflict with the law of balance - but in the course 'of time their number will become unlimited. New globes will come into being again and again, while older globes disappear and decompose into their constituents, but so long as the four mother sun systems by the power of God's Will orbit in space, the combined weight will always balance with zero. The number of globes thus becomes finite in terms of the concept of being, but infinite in terms of the concept of becoming.
All suns, even the most distant nebulae, that can be observed from the Earth belong to the same system, whose mother sun - one of the four - will some day be seen from the Earth, though probably not until the instruments of observation have undergone certain alterations and improvements. At that time the mother sun will be visible low in the southwestern sky.
The system of suns and planets to which the Earth belongs is located in the inner part of the elliptical ring of the "Milky Way", and it moves toward the immaterial centre of force.'
