From past Millennia
Scrolls, stones, earthenware fragments from the excavations of bygone civilisations, cities and empires do indeed tell of past eras in human history. Yet these witnesses of former epochs are silent. They convey no knowledge of Creation by which to recognise the working of the mighty Divine Powers that once formed this Creation with which to offer men the early home where they were to mature and work to the glory of God.
The book "From Past Millennia" mediates to the reader true life in the working of the Laws of Creation. The clear descriptions make it possible to recognise the connection between cause and effect in human life. The reader finds the anchorage of the helps from the Light in the figures of Moses, in the workings of Abd-ru-shin during his first earth-life at that time, and in Jesus the Son of God on this earth. The portrayal of the accompanying events leads the reader to grasp the great connections, and to witness the Divine Guidance of the peoples, free from dogma, inadequate tradition, and rambling fantasy. The intention of the book is not to reproduce outward happenings, but to make it possible to grasp their far-reaching spiritual connections, and here a simple clear language is of special help.
In the recognition of the timeless values that fill this book lies also the key to solving the problems and unrecognised connections of then and now. That is the deep meaning of the descriptions in this book "From Past Millennia".
This book is part of the book-series “Forerunners”, in which are shown the direct helps and the spiritual guidance from the Light that have been given to mankind in the course of their history.
The book “Buddha” portrays the life and work of the Prophet from the spiritual point of view.
The content of the book is no historical account in the ordinary sense. The proximity of Abd-ru-shin enabled some human beings who were open for it to have a comprehensive view of what took place at that time, and to make it visible to posterity with this record.
For the understanding of the reader, let the following be stated :
Reception of events in times gone by did not come about through the transcription of inspired words. The happening was revealed to the seeing one in pictures, which he rendered with his own power of expression and according to his understanding. In the process, the pictures appeared before his inner eye and not before his grossmaterial earthly one; the depicted the unrolling of finer material substances. They reader of the Work “In the Light of Truth” by Abd-ru-shin will be familiar with these different planes, of which our Creation is composed.
For this reason, events described in this book do not render only earthly happenings throughout. Also the beings who appear in these events, be they of human or other nature, may display forms of a different material plane in this connection.
It was reserved to the seeing one to clothe the pictures in his words.
May the “Forerunners” help the reader to recognise that mankind have been granted help from the Light at all times, to enable them to find the path to the Truth.
With regard to this, Abd-ru-shin writes:
“If in the course of thousands of years men had not always acted as they still do today, if they had not time and again distorted everything that was intended to help them, in order to adapt it to their human way of thinking and their earthly desires, there would now be only one uniform teaching here on earth, issuing from the Will of God. There would not be so many kinds of denominations.
“All the teachings that have come to earth in the past would, united, form a single flight of steps to the pedestal on which the Truth is to stand, as it has so often been proclaimed to mankind in various promises.”
“There would be no differences in the interpretations, much less differences in the teachings themselves!
“For all teachings were at one time willed by God, precisely adapted to the individual peoples and countries, and formed in complete accord with their actual spiritual maturity and receptivity.”
“....The bringers of all the individual teachings were Forerunners of the Word of Truth Itself.”
