just for the crack

Post by mac on Mon 24 Apr 2017, 15:51

(originally posted on 06 Oct 2014 11:17 am)


Noticing that KK and I often agree in our approach to certain issues I wondered how many other see things similarly.

I also wondered how many who use this website either see themselves as Spiritualists (in the umbrella heading for this particular Forum) or who are susbtantially influenced by Spiritualist philosophy/teachings even if they don't use the word Spiritualist about themselves?

Or maybe you don't know anything about, or have any interest in, Spiritualism and visit this website for altogether different interests? Care to share?

Well, mac, I'm here basically as I love to learn . I support the principles of spiritualism without actually believing everything
spiritualists say.

Good to see you here. You already know me so I don't think I need to add anything.

In my view it's best not to believe what's said by Spiritualists - or anyone else come to that - unless they say 'stuff' that's supported by evidence that appeals to your reason. It's a principle that works for me....

The problem seems to be that what is evidence to some is not evidence to me.

I agree, that is a problem - I know others who feel much the same. I wish I could help all of you....

I visit these sites to glean snippets of information from the other members and insights that may not have occurred to me. Seeing things from the perspective of others can often be enlightening, even though it can also unearth further questions to which I then need to seek answers.

Reading about other's beliefs and experiences, whatever they are, is never boring and there's always something positive to be learned.

Like a honey bee collecting pollen, a little here and a little there and then some more in that far corner, in order to make the best honey.

I understand. I've never had a single earth-shattering 'Eureka' moment but I have had lots of minor, and some major, experiences which have conspired to persuade me along the lines that I'm presently persuaded. Unless I experience something that falls into the first category I'll likely die in a similar level of persuasion.

Tony Stockwell, in his recent Newsletter, has quoted a piece from the life of a man I would truly love to have met during his lifetime - a great medium, Albert Best (who also happened to be an influential mentor to (IMO) another great medium of today, Gordon Smith).

I have the book in question, 'Best of Both Worlds', written by Ros Cattenach, who was for many years Secretary at the London Spiritual Mission, where in her time such position allowed her the opportunity to meet and know many of the most gifted and respected Spiritualist Mediums who passed through its historic doors over the years. This being my local Spiritualist Church, I feel myself lucky and privileged to have known this lovely lady - and remember a conversation I once had with her where we talked about some of those mediums that had visited the LSM, and particularly the bit about Albert Best and how he had the knack of bringing through to a sitter the most evidential detail from the spirit communicator - unique pieces of information that absolutely no living person could possibly have any knowledge of, and something that would convince the living recipient without a shadow of a doubt that this information was indeed being brought to them from beyond the grave. I did not know at the time that she had been planning to write a book about him - indeed, she may not even have known herself at that time, as one of the things brought up in that discussion was the lack of areas of reference giving details on the life and works of this great natural medium.

Tony Stockwell doesn't know this, but when I was fortunate enough to have been given a message through him whilst in the audience at a Demonstration of Clairvoyance held at London's Olympia (Mind, Body & Spirit Exhibition), on that occasion I got exactly that which he speaks of here .... that one vital piece of unique and detailed convincing evidence that I so needed at that particular time in my life. At that time, I already, through my own experiences, knew and accepted that life continues and that communication was possible and does indeed occur - but I still needed that 'something extra' - some real tangible, indisputable proof that the spirit communicator was who they purported to be - and I got it in a most surprising way, and without any form of contribution from me whatsoever.

So, I am not in any way surprised to read Tony's choice of example, and to read his words here:
As most of you know, teaching and the nurturing of mediumistic abilities are my passions. Without the great teachers who have helped me on my 30 year path I would not have experienced the wonderful connections that I have shared with Spirit.

Let's not forget the amazing Mediums who inspired me and thousands of others through the years.

I came across a book on my shelf the other day and this excerpt is an example of the exacting and detailed connections given by outstanding Medium and Inspirer, Albert Best.

I consider myself a Spiritualist, I visit these websites as I'm interested in what others have to say,
and to see if there is anything new I can learn.
