Reincarnation: Many do not believe it. It is sometimes considered an unfounded faith; but Christ mentions and means reincarnation when He says in answer to the apostles' question, "What shall we do to be saved?" and He says, "You shall be born again." He did not say born in Me, or born in spirit. We do that daily. We die daily of ourselves, of our ego and no one life is long enough to admit of enough growth. This is evolution.
So there is this chance upon chance to improve. If this were not so, we would be an undeveloped creation, which is not tolerated in the harmonious plan of the Universe. A child that is born in four, five, six months, is not completely formed; it is called a miscarriage. Nine months is required for its development. Just so, one life only, would leave us unformed; a spiritual miscarriage, an undeveloped soul.
Moreover, we cannot force our development for that is not done in nature. God does not do it in regard to our spiritual growth. If we do force things, we are like some peaches that were grown by some people who desired a quick, heavy growth and to accomplish this, they piled quantities of fertilizer around the trees. The peaches were of good size, but were tasteless. It was not natural: and all must be natural in both the physical and the spiritual realms.
We have to be cleansed by evolution. No one is born pure—and yet, Christ said, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God." Worth working for, isn't it? Those who develop enough light are teachers. Here or after we go on, and we can always teach best the meanings of the trials that we ourselves have gone through. We can speak with authority of these things, and will probably have much to do with people who have those same troubles.
It is very important for women to be helped, for women are the future mothers of men. Mothers' influence is very powerful with their sons, and they can help to mold them. They make spiritual pills of love, harmony, forgiveness for their men. Woman, even as a wife, is largely a mother.
Woman's influence begins at home, and widens out through her men, into the world and its policies. So let women's morals be uplifted more and more with modesty.
To a woman was given the highest honor. Jesus revealed himself on the third day after His death, to Mary Magdalene. Why? Her purity of love was as fervid as her former capacity for sin. She was ardent; not lukewarm. She gave herself greatly and utterly to God.
You must produce a chronic color to cure a chronic disease. (Yellow must stream from the solar-plexus.) Chronic means fixed state. Our auras must be so thoroughly fixed that we can use the strength engendered there to help others.

The Superet Light Doctrine teaches that reincarnation is a fact. Mother Trust says, "Now we know and believe in reincarnation; for Jesus spoke of Elias' incarnation of John. Because, your Aura proves by the Aura of the past, which holds some of the dark or light vibrations; as we only live hereafter with vibration which the Aura proves. The soul is hidden within - if you are light, darkness or lukewarm."
References of Elias' reincarnation as John the Baptist are:
Matthew chapter 11 vs. 7-15
And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, ”What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings houses. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. FOR THIS IS HE OF WHOM IT IS WRITTEN, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding, he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater then he.And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.For ALL THE PROPHETS AND THE LAW PROPHESIED UNTIL JOHN AND IF YE WILL RECEIVE IT, THIS IS ELIAS, WHICH WAS FOR TO COME. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”
Mark chapter 9 vs. 11-13
And they asked him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And he answered and told them, “Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things, and how it is written of the Son of man, that He must suffer many things, and be set at naught. But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of Him.
Malachi chapter 3 vs. 1
Behold I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me; and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in; behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.
Matthew chapter 3 vs. 1-3
In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, and saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, "The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”
Malachi chapter 4 vs. 5
Behold, I will send you Elias the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
Luke chapter 7 vs. 24-27
And when the messengers of John were departed, he began to speak unto the people concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? Behold, they which are gorgeously apparelled, and lived delicately, are in kings courts. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you and much more than a prophet. THIS IS HE OF WHOM IT IS WRITTEN, BEHOLD, I SEND MY MESSENGER BEFORE THY FACE, WHICH SHALL PREPARE THY WAY BEFORE THEE.
