|Topics: About people who say they are trying to find themselves.
COPY OF TAPE OF TRANCE CIRCLE MEETING No 668. Held 10th July 2007.
Note: Tonight there is no electricity working, and it is a very stormy, wet, windy, and wild night. July is winder in NZ.
First Spirit (Alan): Good evening this is Alan.
Sitters: Good evening Alan.
Spirit: You have enough sound effects tonight for a ghost story. (Mirth) All it needs is a sheet and some vapour. (Laughter) But apart from that it is good practice for us, as conditions are a little bit different. Ling will I think be able to talk to you, but it will possibly be for a shorter period of time.
Sitter: Alan are you happy with the white instead of red light we are using, or would you rather it was turned out?
Spirit: No, leave it as it is thank you. If you started interfering at this stage it would be, not an adverse effect for us, but for our medium. So I will move over and it may be a little while before our friend Ling joins us, but I think he will manage.
Sitter: Thank you Alan.
Spirit: Bless you.
Note: Here there was a two minute pause.
Second Spirit (Ling): Greetings.
Sitters: Greetings Ling.
Spirit: It is a little harder for us to communicate. Partly it is sound, partly it is dust. It is the moving of the various particles, no matter how tiny, as all have their own little frictions or disturbances. That is why communication is much easier on a still, cold night when there is no movement and no sound. I don’t mean a frozen night, because then there is sound of a different sort, as the plant life contracts against the cold, and animal life moves about, because of the cold. If it was summer, moderate temperature, moonlight night, that can so often make it easier for us.
We hope you can ignore, and do not imagine that it is us, making the various noises that you hear and are unable to put a name to. I can assure you that it is not from us. It is some physical phenomenon caused by the inclement weather that you are having at the moment, but let me assure you it is far worse in other places.
I will not talk for long because it is a little difficult. The people we call our engineers are very busy. I am just like the man on the radio who talks into a microphone. I do not control the radio station.
The people I was going to mention tonight, and talk about for a short time are those, and there are so many of them in today’s world… who are trying to 'find themselves'.
If you have anyone like that who says to you, “But I’m doing this to find myself”, ask them, “Well where have you lost yourself, because you cannot lose yourself? All the good that you do is always with you, and that, that you don’t like about yourself, remains with you until you have learned better. My friends, look within yourselves”.
Every person no doubt starts off by wanting the pleasures, the materialistic things, that are forced in front of the people today continually by sound and by picture, that they feel that there is only one way to get these things… to go out and get them, and never mind about anyone else – so in one way they do lose themselves.
They lose the goodness of the soul, the spirit, but it is always there it just needs awakening. They need to waken to themselves, and realise that it is only within themselves, that they can find the happiness that they are seeking.
Once they start to do good, to do the small things, the considerate things – to help others… eventually they will truly find themselves and find that the joy is within them. It is within the capabilities of every one, there is no losing self, for you cannot get away from the personality that is you. All you can do, is to say to them, “Develop that”.
Now those words are lengthy and they would not listen if you were to tell them that story as I gave it to you, so in rereading it, take out the essence, the true pieces that can be condensed, and once you have got them to think, you could add more, you are capable yourselves of adding more. All you are doing is helping them to awaken within themselves the essence of their being, because it is only then, that they will find themselves… you cannot escape what you are, but you can improve what you are, and find the joy, the ultimate happiness… and that would be finding themselves!
Would anyone like to comment or ask any questions?
Sitters: No thank you Ling.
Spirit: Thank you. Bless your little circle, and I’m sure that you will all survive this inclement weather.(Mirth). But you may have a little cleaning up to do.
Goodnight and God bless you from all of us.
