|Topic: Keep your body healthy, and keep acquiring more knowledge.
ED. COPY OF TAPE OF TRANCE CIRCLE MEETING No.541. Held 18th Nov 2003.
Spirit: Good evening.
With the Principle: ‘Retribution, compensation, here and hereafter for the good and the evil that you may have done’, naturally you think of what you have done to others, for you know what is right. Human beings have known for thousands of years that you should treat others as you would want to be treated, but it can be taken a step further because you can do, not evil… we contradict there… of course you like anyone else can do evil, but we feel that you wouldn’t, but you can do wrong to yourselves.
Realise… (you have been told many times and you know it, but you probably do not completely accept)… that you are spirit! You are pleased no doubt to speak to many of us, but in one way we are no different to you. We are spirit too!
At this moment of time, you are a spirit living in a body. It is up to you to care for that body, as you would care for your house. You do not abuse your house if you have knowledge and know better, but as you are aware there are hundreds of ways in which you can abuse your body. Be sensible; be balanced, in your treatment of this house that you’re living in.
You have a brain, that is your means of communication, your computer, call it what you will, but it is only as good as what you, spirit, make the effort to teach it.
We are forever asking you to do this or that, in the way of learning. It need only take minutes of your day, not necessarily to learn by rote some particular thing, but at least to think, “Why”? With time the brain will absorb what you are thinking and make use of it. You can only return to other people, what you yourself have received and accepted, and the more knowledge you gain, good, balanced knowledge (because it is very easy for all of us to gain unacceptable knowledge but here we are speaking of sound, useful knowledge), and the more you receive and accept, the more you can pass on. No matter how old the body is, as long as it has been carefully looked after, it can continue to absorb knowledge. A healthy body, (unless there is damage), should mean a healthy brain. It is understandable that circumstance can sometimes negate all your efforts, but it is up to you to work your house, your brain, because you are spirit.
When we are speaking to you, we are not speaking to a body or to a brain, we are speaking to the spirit, which is you. This is something that you need to accept, and realise that the good and the evil that is spoken of in the ‘Principle’, does not only pertain to what you may do to other people, other countries, other institutions, but what you do to yourself.
I hope you have been able to follow, and if there is any question, I will do my best to answer it for you at this time.
Sitters: No thank you, Cloud.
Spirit: Good. Well all we ask is that you accept the fact that you are spirit! We can all forget this when we are on earth; it is very easy because everything around us is physical. But you are a wonderful being; each and every one of you and that is why there should be a brotherhood, because you are all potentially wonderful. If you are not wonderful now, it is up to you, because you are capable. The opportunity is there, on-going, forever!
This was Cloud.
