“I am to take you by the hand this evening, to hold you
gently, not so that you might run away but to reassure you, each
and every one. This
is not something as strange as you might think for our minds are
with you at all times. It is so infrequent that we are able to
pass our thoughts on to you so directly. We aim to bring you
insight so that you might view your world in a different light,
also so that you might view your own lives in a way that you had
not previously considered.
We feel anxiety from you so often. We tell you there is
no need for anxiety.
“Many of you would prefer to breeze through your
experiences with pleasure and joy and this too we would like for
you. The first step is to remove the sense of worry. How may you
do this? As always
we aim to give you practical steps. Take your lifetime and look
at it. View it from
the cradle to the grave. We know you cannot see as far as the
grave but imagine it if you will.
Imagine those moments when you will cease your breath.
View it in its totality, or if you find it easier, view your
early life up to this moment and look back to its beginnings.
Can you remember the moments when you were so anxious
that life seemed too difficult to bear?
Yet here you are for the most part happy and contented,
certainly at this present moment. Those previous anxieties
served you not at all. They did not resolve any of your
difficulties for you, merely made it more difficult to think
clearly. Needless worry does not serve you.
Active thought for solutions, this is what is required of
you: active thought followed by action. Anxiety on its own
without action merely confuses and creates more disturbance.
Now take your mind to the ends of your days, whenever
that might be, and imagine yourself looking back over your
lifetime. What would
you consider is the most important aspect in your mind at this
moment? Is it really
important that you bought or sold that particular house, or that
you went on this or that holiday?
All these things that created disturbance at the time
have no real value in the overall concept of life. What should
be and what will be in your mind is more like - What have I
achieved, do I feel good about my actions or do I wish I could
have done otherwise?
These are the things that will stay with you when you pass into
the spirit world. These are the things that will continue in
your mind after you pass from this world. All other matters will
seem as non importance.
We tell you this to give you a sense of proportion, to
make you easier when you meet difficulties. Hold that picture in
your mind and you will see true values. You will see how you may
enjoy your life, for you will have swept away all unnecessary
concerns of a material sense.
I can feel you say, ‘But yes, when we or a member of
the family is ill or suffering anguish of one kind or another
then it is not so easy to rest serene.
When we do not have enough funds to pay the bills we
cannot rest serene’.
We understand this too. When you meet such a situation, when
another’s suffering pulls at your heart strings, we beg you to
take a long term view even here. We beg you to think positively
about what you may do, rather than worry needlessly without
action. What may you
do when another suffers and you are at hand?
You may comfort. You may show quite noticeably some
concern. Do share yourselves with those who suffer. Try not to
allow suffering to go unaccompanied.
All of you have a role to play in this period of time
and the purpose of your presence is to awaken in you ideas as to
how you may not only improve your own lives but also the lives
of those around you. There is much that you may do by
maintaining in yourself an inner serenity.
You know my dear children, when you pass from this life
then may your joy begin for that is a birth into a great
happiness, a great enlightenment and a great sharing of joy with
others. We try to
bring this into your lives here so you do not have to wait for
this joy. We tell
you this for there are other existences for you beyond this
life, beyond this Earth. This is but a taster for you.
We also ask you to consider that every action and every
thought that you send from yourself is felt by another, is
received somewhere at some time. It is then reflected back to
the source of its origin, that is, your own mind. So in effect
you receive what you give. Every thought, every action returns
to you. Therefore you would do well to consider that your
actions be comfortable, warm and loving, if you would receive
the warmth and the love. It is not always easy or loving but it
is something for you to aspire to, to hold in your mind as a
right action, so that you may enjoy the benefits.
We would mention the species at this point, those of
the animal and plant kingdom that cause so much concern through
diminishing numbers. There has always been evolution for some
reason or another.
Species will disappear and in their place will be new species
adapted to changing conditions. This is not a popular viewpoint
with those of you on your planet striving to keep the balance.
I am aware that this too is not in the mind of my medium.
However we tell you that there will be a disappearance of many
species, but it is not a cause for undue alarm. For always, for
as long as your planet maintains an atmosphere there will be new
We are trying here to give you a broad view so that you
do not narrow your thinking too minutely. Man too will evolve.
Man too will change form to some degree but will always
be recognisable as mankind.
Man as he is now is different to the man at his first
appearance on this Earth.
We are not referring to the ape world. We are talking
about the MAN species not the animal species. I would be happy
to enlarge upon this.
For those of you who are concerned over the condition
of the planet, the climatic and geographical condition, we say
that this is merely a part of evolution speeded by man’s
actions. It is evolution nonetheless and changes will take
place. This brings me to the purpose of my introduction by
giving you a broader view of your individual lives. You will
return many times and it is necessary for you to have a world to
return to. In your subsequent incarnations, in future lives far
ahead, we say you will have evolved physically, as well as, we
hope, in your soul growth. There will be physical changes to
enable you to proliferate and cover the Earth.
