SERTORIUS - CHURCH TALK ON EVILDOERS
Hail Caesar! In my incarnation in your world I was a
general under Caesar Augustus, and I was Caesar's man. And now I serve
Spirit in the same way I served that office.
I come to you today to talk on an important aspect
which we feel has not often enough been mentioned. You have heard it
said that when someone comes on this side, they will review their past
life. And so it is. Most people are ordinary people and they have done
things they regret, and things they are pleased about. But there are
people in your world who have great power and who abuse that power.
Have you ever thought what happens to them when they review their
life? The ordinary person has many regrets, the ordinary person will
grieve and feel repentant and seek to do reparation for those things.
But when a person is completely overwhelmed with the realisation that
they have caused great harm in your world, they become stifled, they
cannot move, they become rigid, as you might conceive it. They cannot
get on with their work of reparation. The people they have harmed are
now directing hatred towards them, and they cannot move, they sink
beneath its strength. Now you may think that this is justified, that
that person deserves this. May be they do, but it is a destructive
thing. Today, I want to ask you to carry out one of the sayings of the
founder of your dominant religion - Jesus - when he said, render good
for evil; do good to those who deceitfully serve you. These words which
have been translated in slightly different ways several times, are the
very epitome of the behaviour of those who would follow the Christ.
I want to ask you and I think it would be good
whenever you meet in little groups, each time you meet, deliberately
send loving thoughts to the people I have just been talking about, to
those who have done evil. If you will send them love you enhance
yourself, the people you are concentrating on may be liberated. It may
be that your thoughts of love will be the first feeling of receiving
love that that soul has experienced. Just one loving thought could be
enough to release the soul, so that it can get on with its work of
reparation, with its work of passing on love to those whom it hated
before. In this way that person can resolve the hate that the people
they harmed have been experiencing. In many cases it is only that
person who can release their victim from the feeling of hatred.
The victims have often been overwhelmed by what
happened to them. We bring them much love and support when they come to
this side, but there are many here who are locked in such hatred of the
person who caused their suffering that they, too, cannot progress. If
we can relieve the person who caused the suffering, they can in turn,
as their part of reparation, relive their victims.
I know this is a hard thing to ask. I know that
many of you have suffered as a result of the dictates of those in
power. But if you can express that love, you will be released from that
suffering. It is of benefit to you, as much as to the person you
concentrate on. It is not necessary for you to even select a person who
is in the Spirit World. There are many people in your world who are in
the position of power which they abuse. There are others, humble
people, some of their names may not ever reach the circulation of your
news media. I am (also) thinking of the mass murderers, that occur
occasionally in your society. If you could concentrate on them, sending
them love, it may be that you can change their character while they are
still on earth. This is one of the most Christian things that you can
possibly do. You in this church are in a position to receive some of
the highest teachings that Spirit has to give. I am asking you to live
up to those teachings, that your love may shine before men, that they
have a clear example of the Christian way of life, which is love, love,
love.Please will you at least try to live up to that. Every effort you
make will be supported by us here in Spirit, for we are concerned that
there is much hatred around. By doing this you will relieve hatred in
your world and so bring to it more love. You will increase the love
that is available. I assure you, we will do our best to help every one
of you that will attempt to do this.
There are many here today whom you cannot see. We
are joining in a great band of love around this room. The love is
building up around and over you. Would you please sit quietly for a few
moments and just experience that love.
(Speaking softly and slowly, with many pauses)
Feel the peace ... and the calmness ... that is
coming towards you. Feel love through your being ... do not use words
... just feel and experience.When you try to pass on that love, do not
use will-power. Use your imagination. Feel that love you feel now, and
then think of the person to whom you wish to direct it. You may, of
course, use this method with the people around you whenever there is
any bad feeling. It is a very powerful technique.
I thank you for inviting me here today.
My love and peace I leave with you.
