From FOREWORD by ANNIE BESANTThe text of this book is the joint work of Mr. Lead-beater and myself. The drawing and painting of the thought-forms observed by Mr. Lead-beater or by myself, or by both of us together, has been done by three friends – Mr. John Varley, Mr. Prince and Miss Macfarlane, to each of Whom we tender our cordial thanks. To paint in earth’s dull color the forms clothed in the living light of other worlds is a hard and thankless task ; so much the more gratitude is due to those who have attempted it. They needed colored fire, and had only ground earths. We have also to thank Mr. F. Bligh Bond for allowing us to use his essay on Vibration Figures, and some of his exquisite drawings. Another friend, who sent us some notes and a few drawings, insists on remaining anonymous, so we can only send our thanks to him with similar anonymity. It is our earnest hope – as it is our belief – that this little book will serve as a striking moral lesson to every reader, making him realize the nature and power of his thoughts, acting as a stimulus to the noble, a curb on the base. With this belief and hope we send it on its way.
