Other World, The

Suppose every person could disbelieve in another world as it is called. What would be the effect on each individual? Let everyone put the question to himself. Reader, do you suppose that if you could disbelieve in another world that it would put you out of existence as long as you could believe? For as long as you believed, you would be in existence. Now imagine the heavens and the earth and all that in them is, can you doubt that there must be a something that knows more than you do? Then the next question comes up. Where is it? You cannot say in heaven, for you have denied this place. Jesus answered this question of where heaven is by saying it is in you, even in your thoughts. So the kingdom of heaven was in their minds. Now this is my belief. So it is with the other world; it is all in the mind. Now get it out so that the mind does not contain it, then what exists? You exist and that you know if you know anything. You know that you are always learning something new, this you know. You know that matter and mind are always changing. You know that science is progression, and that its truths always have existed and always must. Even if all the people were swept from the earth, still the truth of science would exist. Science in you teaches you that you are a child of science and therefore your identity cannot be lost. So to be a child of science you cannot leave the father and go into a belief of what you can show is nothing but an opinion.

Now where does science look for the God that it worships? In the clouds? No. Does it call it up from the vast deep? No. Then where does it seek it? It looks at the evils of the world and says, How long shall man wander in darkness looking for wisdom when it is in himself and he does not know it? It is the higher principle of our nature. Now let this higher principle rise with me above all the opinions of men about another world, and come up hither and sit on the clouds made by the superstition and look and survey one last space where perfect light and harmony exist. Now turn your eyes to the earth and see men's eyes turned upward to see this world and listen to their stories about it. See them down on their knees begging an unknown God to guide them to this world. So the superstition in regard to it is that the spirits of all those that they have created and believed in come from this vast place, where man never comes, nor ever will come till he breaks the fetters of idolatry, and by the buoyancy of his wisdom, rises by his own wisdom, unfettered by superstitions into the glorious light of science.
