Excerpts from The Fundamental Principles of Life' by Dr. Walter Lutz (a compilation-type presentation of the NEW REVELATION)
"The work of these beings is limited to certain areas. Spirits of the lowest kind have only about an acre to control. Such a spirit possesses the necessary wisdom and power to guide the individual small beings, subordinate to it, wholly with its will. It is conversant with the special forces of every grain of seed that is placed into the ground and knows how many of these forces are from the earth and now many from the stars. When the grain of seed is placed in the soil, the spirit breathes its will across the field, which seizes the forces in the grain of seed and stimulates them into action, in accordance with the plan of God's order. Then these little spirits commence their activity in the grain of seed; they form the roots, the tubes. Others ascend and form the stalk with its tubes, flaps, pumps and valves. Again others in accordance with their intelligence and power - ascend through the tubes of the stalk and form twigs and leaves; others - buds and blossoms. And the most mature spirits, purified through this work, form the fruit. Within the fruits, the principal spirit-intelligences unite to form the germ, enveloping themselves in a web through which the other, less purified little spirits cannot penetrate. When in this way the ripening has been achieved, then the field-spirit in charge had accomplished its work and leaves the rest to men and also to other nature spirits that have to see to the decomposition of these parts of the plant that are not part of the fruit."
"There are as many spirits as there are fields and classes of plants. Each spirit has its particular plants allocated in a certain areas and has to see to it that this kind continues with the same characteristics and form. The slightest inattention on the part of such a spirit results in a bad harvest or poor growth. Such carelessness is not infrequent with these nature spirits since - as far as the accuracy of their activity is concerned - they are not under compulsion, but have an absolutely free will (because in a will under compulsion, no responsibility can be practised). Therefore, if men are meant to be punished with a bad harvest, this work has only to be entrusted to somewhat indifferent spirits that take their task lightly. If these spirits that watch over the vegetation do not employ the properly released soul-forces of nature in the right order and number, keeping them under strict control, then the ones that are unoccupied immediately rise into the air causing bad weather, vapours, etc. All this has a bad effect on the growth of plants.
"To prevent this from happening too often, the field-spirits are always controlled by a higher and more perfected spirit, responsible for a much larger area, who supervises all his subordinates and allots them their work in accordance with their talents. But he does not interfere with the district of any other principal spirit. However, to ensure the same order in all the districts, a further spiritual governor is set over all the district -heads, who are capable of supervising and governing an entire land. This is no longer a nature spirit (nature soul), but an angelic spirit. And the kingdom formed by several lands is supervised by a prince of angels. And over all the kingdoms there watches the Prince of princes Who - what no spirit can do - watches over every single atom and life-spark. - Thus the Lords's eye sees all that is and happens." (Earth and Moon Chapter 44)
Another group of field-spirits supervises the animal kingdom and has to ensure that every animal conforms to its God-given form and characteristics and acts in the right way. These spirits that watch over the animal kingdom only seldom become visible to men, since they are much too busy to show themselves. "Notwithstanding this, there are, in the mountains, sometimes shepherds with a simple faith who occasionally see such spirits. They will tell you how such spirits have made a poor meadow go green overnight, how they have protected animals during heavy thunderstorms and other events of nature, and saved them from falling to their death from steep cliffs." (Der Grossglockner Chapter 8)
