Day 7 – A Journey of My Spiritual Experiences (Listen while you read)
Naturally, I am exaggerating when I say that ‘Know Thyself’ contained only insulting words; no, this is far from the truth.
Picking up the little book this morning and opening it at random, I came across Chapter Four, Page 45.
We are What We See.
Indeed, dear one, we are what we see. Whatever we perceive in others, is within you and me. Whenever we are startled by someone’s behaviour, it is because we understand it as being within our self. When indeed we can understand it, without the startled expression, it will be because we have overcome that particular condition, and will have compassion for our brother, our sister, who is still pained by what he sees.
Yes, dear one, we shall see, what we see, through the eyes of our own experiences.
What is right for us need not necessarily be that which is right for another. We can never judge another for that which he does, for in the experience is for him a wealth of learning and understanding. Would we take this away from him? I would think not. Would you, dear one, remove from your brother, or from your sister, that which will enable him to learn that which he does not know?
Good, then he shall not do this to you. Whatever we project, we attract.
It has been a wonderful time for me the past 15 years or so. Like everybody, I have had my ups and my downs.
As I mentioned earlier, Graham was a wanderer, just like my first husband; he couldn’t stay in one place very long. When the time came, after a year or so, we advised the congregation that we would be leaving. It was sad to say goodbye. We handed the keys over to a woman who had been a member of the church for many years. She wasn’t a medium; however, she had the interests of the church at heart and we felt that it would be good left in her hands.
This wasn’t always the case though. She had been a sceptic and a very hard ‘nut to crack’. Like most organisations, when someone new enters the arena the standing members can feel a little out of ease. Who is this new person? What direction do they want to go? Are they worthy? Do they have what it takes, etc., etc. She was no different. At our meditation/circles she would sit, arms folded, a non-expressive face, save for a narrowing of the eyes appearance. I knew that she had problems accepting much of what the church stood for, and yet, there she was involved in all things spiritual. Well, all things, except perhaps faith.
One evening whilst channelling, Lord Jesus spoke. I had channelled Lord Jesus a number of times at other circles; however, not at this circle. The love in the room was palpable. Everyone succumbed to the glorious feelings that engulfed us; everyone, except this woman. She remained totally untouched. She advised me, the following week, that she had spoken with a medium friend who had told her unequivocally that I was a fraud and a trickster. She was a very up-front, out-spoken woman and I asked her to hold her judgment for a while until she could judge for herself. This she did.
Her husband was a truckie, retired. They received the pension and he refused to give her any money for herself apart from the grocery and utility needs. I approached her one night and convinced her to go to the Social Security because I had been given the understanding that she could, with supporting evidence, be given a small amount of money over and above the amount they were receiving as a couple. Even I doubted this; however, she was in such a desperate state she went along and was so grateful to me after receiving the small amount that had been spoken of. After this event I had yet another supporter who wouldn’t hear of any ill remarks being made of me. Even her demeanour changed at the circles. She was the first to arrive and the last to leave. She listened intently to all of the words spoken through me and became quite the defender. We, Graham and I, some years later paid a visit one Sunday when we were holidaying in the area. The church had moved to another location; however, there she was sitting in the facilitators chair singing her heart out. It was such a lovely thing to see a woman who ‘knew’ where she belonged.
