CHURCH TALK - BELIEVED TO BE BY ARRIAN
Helping unhappy souls.
Good afternoon friends. It is always an honour to
be asked to come to address you in the church, and we are grateful to
you for including us on your platform.
We often have so much that we wish to bring through
to you but often we know that there is someone in your congregation who
needs something special, and we always try to include that person in
There is much peace and energy building up with you today. There are
always many, many, souls gathered around you. There are souls who have
come here today to be with you, their loved ones. There are souls who
come to be with those who they are guiding during their material life.
There are others who come to help with the energy and work in your
church. And there are others who come to be benefited as much as you
There are some lost souls over on our side. Much of
this is caused by inappropriate teachings when they were in your world,
and it is the movement with which you are associated that is making
tremendous efforts to correct the result. (Interference on the tape) of
these wrong teachings when they come over here. The work that I am
thinking of consists in freeing people's minds because, in your world,
there are so many belief systems which are codified and things are laid
down quite strictly and allow no room for development or expansion, and
this becomes necessary in your world. Some of those with whom we have
the most difficulty when they come here are those who believe that they
must sleep or reincarnate - they are even more difficult that those who
come over here believing that there is no after-life. And there are
those who come here suffering from guilt about something they have done
in your material world. These people often need comforting and
reassuring, and those of us who work through this medium have a
particular wish to help you in the material world with understanding of
love, both there and on this side, and how to avoid this particular
difficulty. You are in an imperfect world, and you cannot manifest
perfectly in that world. You are all a small manifestation of the
underlying Godness, the Godness, the Being, the energy that underlies
all types of manifestation, whether in the solid material world or in
the more ethereal spiritual worlds. Always remember - you are just as
much in the Spirit World while you are inhabiting your body, as when
you come over there, it is simply a more dense form. So do not expect
perfection even at the level of manifestation in which you are - be
prepared to try again and again.
But try to make good while you are in the material
world to those whom you think you have wronged. Make your peace unto
them before you meet the judge - this is the real meaning of the
parable of the Lord Jesus when he spoke those words so many years ago.
We teach that there WAS a person called Jesus, he worked very much in
the way that your philosophy works today. Unfortunately there has been
much elaboration about his life, so concentrate on the philosophy and
the teachings. There is no harm in following the festivals that you
have - it is better to celebrate His birth on an incorrect date than
not to celebrate it at all. This does not worry us at all. During those
few weeks of the Christmas season you all get such an upliftment of
spirit - it doesn't matter whether Jesus was born on that date or not.
All that matters is that you remember Him and His birth and His
teachings. He, too, was guided by Spirit, but HE also really knew and
understood His own nature. We hope that we who are working with this
medium in your world, can set you on the path to understanding your own
Many people ask "What is the purpose of this life in this world?" This
question has never been fully and satisfactorily answered. Does it HAVE
to have a purpose? We ask you. Do your best in that world, enjoy it as
much as you can. Accept others - remember everyone is a manifestation
of the Godness - it doesn't matter what form their material body takes
- but remember, when you come here you will have many greater
opportunities. If there is an unfulfilled desire in your heart you can
fulfil it over here. You will have an opportunity to make friends with
those who you think you have harmed, or who you think were not friendly
to you in your world. Nothing will ever be final, you will always be
able to make it good. Do not castigate yourself. Remember always - in
you, too, there is a drop of the Godness. You may feel that you do not
manifest that Godness well. Then I say - do not try too hard. Accept
yourselves and accept others too. This is the greatest thing to do. It
is difficult too, we understand that, but work always to accept others.
You see, when there is someone you do not accept, someone who you
reject, remember that you are rejecting the underlying Godness, you are
also rejecting yourself, and when someone rejects you they, too, are
rejecting themselves. But you will have a second chance over here to
work out everything, to make friends again, to make good, to help
others. Perhaps you feel you are not able to do so in this world. There
are many souls over here who need help too. One of the things which you
can do to help others in your world is to feel love for them. Send that
love to them, for many of them it could be the first time they have
experienced the vibrations of unconditional love. Put golden light
around them. You can, if you wish, if you know of someone, think of a
particular person. But you may just send love generally to someone in
trouble. Talk to them about the light, that golden light that emanates
from Godness. Tell them to go to that lovely, friendly, loving light.
Just getting them to look at it, in many cases, will free them and
enable them to go on.
It is our custom when we talk with you in your
church to finish with a brief meditation, and, today, I would ask you
to send that love to those in Spirit who are in difficulties. We have a
few such souls here, you do not need to know their story, or to know
who they are. They are in a group here (indicating the area in from of
the altar, about 1.5 metre above the floor) if you could quietly feel
love and direct that love to them, you will receive much more love
back. This is one way in which you can strengthen the link between you
(Speaking slowly and deliberately now)
We are putting a golden circle around this church,
while you sit quietly. You can use any idea that you wish - colours,
lights, flowers, animals, people - and give them love.
There are some who have been greatly touched by
your love. They may have experienced love for the first time.
They are opening up to spirit for the first time.
This work will continue after this service. And we
thank you for your help and co-operation. Each one of you has now been
given a spiritual flower which will accompany you through the coming
May God be with you all. Amen.
