The True Source of all Healing. About God: more spiritual teachings through the mediumship of violinist Adila Fachira
Here us a continuation of these teachings recorded by the Swedish diplomat in London, Erik, Baron Palmstierna, through the mediumship of the violinist Adila Fachira, and presented to the Archbishop's Committee reviewing Spiritualism. The subsequent 1939 report showed that the majority of the Committee were favourably impressed by the work and findings of Spiritualism and Psychical Research. It was never published by the Anglican Church, but it was later released with the advocacy of Maurice Barbanell.
These are some important messages from the other side, presented just before the Second World War. They are still relevant today, in times of world-wide unrest and expanding terrorist forces.. They were first published in Palmstierna's book ''Horizons of Immortality'' in New York by Coward-McCann, Inc., in 1938. It is significant that they could not have appeared in England, such was the Anglican hostility to Spiritualism at the time, which to a certain extent still obtains today.
We often receive waves representing the most fantastic views regarding the Great One. There is nothing which is not attributed to Him: wickedness, deceit, illness, sufferings, the wish of punishment,. How it darkens everything when such waves reach us. That mankind should dare to believe and teach such things time after time shows us the strength of evil influence.
If you love a person, could you allow that person to suffer? Do you wish to punish that person? You would shudder and say: how can you believe such a thing of me, when you know my devotion for him ? Yet to Him, Who is only light and love, you attribute - or at least allow it to be believed - that He knows of your sufferings. Can you imagine pure love watching slow suffering, slow dying of flesh? It is terrifying to see that mankind should believe in such a God, Who to our view would be worse than evil, as to allow the torture of earthly souls and not stop it, would be a hundredfold worse than evil. But here comes the point men are reluctant to believe and that is that God has no knowledge of earthly souls' wickedness and could not interfere with their free will.
We understand your anxiety that many people will lose the comforting thought that God sends the pain under which they suffer for their betterment, but do you not feel at heart that possibly just that belief is the one which estranges man from God? The man who thinks will ultimately always revolt against a God who allows suffering. Evil wants you to believe that God gives you suffering and at the same times wishes you to believe that it cannot be a god of all good. We feel a certainty in illuminating the world of this truth. It will make Christ bigger ultimately and will also make mankind realize that their attitude towards their fellow man carries their own happiness. When man will realize that his free will makes him and not God responsible for their acts, then only will the light of the Great One begin its unhindered shine on mankind. No one dared to tell man that he is the sole controller of his soul. If he realizes that, purity will spread its roots to every heart, but this will take long, very long.. God is love, light and mercy without sin. Do not look for your ill-doings in His heart.
God is omniscient and omnipotent only as far as goodness is concerned; evil does not come into question with Him. The human ideas of omnipotence and omniscience in every respect are not the truth. Mankind invented them, because to them it is not absolute love, but absolute power, which makes the greatest impression. It is that which they believe to be the key to the mastering of the world and the universe.
The Great One only knows goodness and would not inflict punishment, the like one reads of in the Bible.
God cannot punish as He knows no sin.
Punishment if inflicted by your own self going from a different route from that in which and through which God shines.
God knows no evil, nor pain, nor misery. Man brought himself to suffering by hearkening to evil's temptations.
Although he is unaware of evil, He is aware of spirits shunning His light and it is for that He sent so much beauty down to earth so that even there, where He is not truly wanted by the multitude, Divine beauty should remind them of what they shall receive if they believe in pure love and love for the sake of love.
The fresh-scented vision of the Divine:
He is Light and All,
He is Goodness,
He is Art,
He is Beauty
He is Melody,
He is Poetry, and
He is one big Heart,
He is most of all a Child.
[Palmstierna comments that this child-like, innocent joy, 'joie de vivre, is difficult for us sophisticated materialist folk to understand. The spirit communicator continues:]
Such perfection as God is can only exist if unaware of it. The instant you are aware of such things you have opponents and are not alone in your powers. The proof of His omniscience is that He knows not of it and His heavenly Mathematics are equally without His knowledge. He creates without His knowledge, but this must not be interpreted in earthly words. The Great One is true knowledge just as He is pure love, but if He is true knowledge in the sense of the Divine, He cannot be aware of it, because if He were, it would not be truly divine. His is not aware of His knowledge nor of His power,, hence His absolute humbleness of which He is equally unaware. God is unaware that He is all and light and emanates light the same way. The Great One combines everything which is beauty, light, goodness and love. He is like a source not only for one attribute but He is all. It is for us to realize His divinity, His absolute love, knowledge and light.
