Whispers from Eternity1

I was deaf, but Eternity whispered to me Unceasingly. My wisdom’s hearing‐power slowly woke, and I heard the Whispers of Eternity becoming ever clearer in response to my sacred demands.

I asked Eternity: “What do Thy whispers mean?” The whispers grew stronger, until at last, quite suddenly, Eternity answered: “Hear the voice of uninterrupted guidance. I am God’s spokesman, Eternity. I have whispered to thee through thy slumber of ages: ‘Awake!’ Now thou art awake, and My whispers will never cease from saying: ‘Wake all thy brothers!’ In sleeping minds everywhere, My whispers constantly work. Work thou with Me, through living, eternal whispers, that all may hear His voice.”

I replied to Eternity: “I will send whispers to all my sleeping brothers, saying: ‘Awake! Get ready! Come home to His perennial peace!’ And I will borrow Thy voice, Eternity, when my earthly voice can be no more heard. Then I will continue to utter through Thee: ‘Oh, listen to His all‐solacing soul‐whispers!’”

I will wait for all, uttering to them Eternity’s whispers. As my countless human brothers — and also beasts, and atom‐sparks — all slowly travel toward their own final freedom, their long train seemingly endless, I will softly say through these Whispers from Eternity: “Awake! Let us all together go home, following the whispered summons of His ever‐calling voice.”

1. The word “Eternity,” as used here, symbolizes God as manifested in nature and in human souls. This book endeavors to show how practical inner communion can he established between Eternity and the human mind. Communion with Intangible God is possible only through His tangible manifestations of Eternity.Man’s demands to God and to Eternity for divine guidance must be made through effective, secret whispers in deep meditation; these will be answered through God’s own helpful whispers in the soul. These demands should be uttered unceasingly for the ears of living Eternity in the human soul; then God (Eternity) will respond in the mysterious silence — changing one’s entire being, and even his environment.
