    SILVER BIRCH – THE POWER OF THE SPIRIT

    Post  skye on Wed Sep 08, 2010 6:34 pm

    To the uninitiated I would say I am a human being like your-selves. I have lived much longer than any of you who are listening to what I say, as a result of my experiences in realms far beyond your earth, I have gained some knowledge of the Great spirit you call God, and of the natural laws which have been devised to ensure that the will of the Great Spirit will and must prevail. What I have learnt as a result of my experiences I am willing to share with those who are ready to receive them because I think they may be of helpfulness to them.

    I am not in any way a deity, I am still very human, capable of error, weakness and imperfection, I have, like every one of you, a long way to go on the road to perfection. It is an infinite one. But, like others in my world, I was asked to retrace my steps so that I could offer some of the truth, the wisdom and the knowledge that we have gained and share it with you. At the same time, we would be able, with the aid of those who co-operate with us, to make available the supreme power of the spirit, which is responsible for all life despite its multitudinous forms, so that this power can stream through gifted individuals and serve its benign purpose.

    In olden days, when this power flowed, it performed certain remarkable phenomena which many today regard as miracles. I want to say that in the operation of natural law they cannot be suspended or abrogated, and must fulfil themselves in ordered sequence as effect follows cause. Whatever has happened, however remarkable, stupefying, extraordinary or wonderful in days gone by, was due to the operation of natural laws. These operate not only in the physical domain but also work ceaselessly in the spiritual realms.

    When conditions allow, the spiritual, psychic, astral and etheric laws can be brought into operation to perform what were regarded as miracles yesterday, but today are described as psychic phenomena produced through mediumship. A medium is one on whom there has been bestowed the gifts of the spirit which are ably described by the apostle Paul in your Bible. These gifts are divinely bestowed. Their recipients, as they unfold them, are able to be used as channels for the divine beneficence to flow through them.

    All the phenomena of mediumship are due to the operation of spirit power. Today you are witnessing exactly the same kind of manifestations that occurred in the lands which were called holy and regarded as sacred. The Great Spirit does not change; the natural laws do not alter. They are in operation now. Thus I, who once inhabited your world, am able to speak to you through a medium by utilising the same power of the spirit.

    I want to explain also that we are part of a vast spirit organisation. We are pursuing what I would like to describe as the overall master plan, which is designed to ensure that the power of the spirit will continue to express itself in your world and reach an ever increasing number of people. The object is to drive away their ignorance, error and superstition and to bring them into the radiant light of divine truth and knowledge so that they can begin to live and fulfil themselves as they should according to the purpose of their earthly incarnation.

    The power of the spirit has constantly flowed into your world from time immemorial; its descent, however, was only temporary and sporadic. The wonders that were worked, the signs that were given, the same truths that were pronounced were each time made available to the people of that day. Then there was decay, tampering with the knowledge that had been revealed, for political, theological and sometimes state purposes. Now, however, the power of the spirit, because of the overall plan to which I have referred is here to stay in your world.

    Why? Because it is vitally necessary to do so. So many systems have failed to provide the direction which will enable the people who dwell on earth to find themselves, and to live according to ideals that will enable divinity which gave them life to express itself. The spirit has to be made prominent in the lives of all who dwell on earth. It is a very dark world in which you live. It is full of turbulence, violence, greed, envy. Mammon is being worshipped instead of the Great Spirit. False idols are still the ones which are subject of adoration.

    The evidence that is available to you will, if you are reasonable, convince you that life, because it is spiritual in essence, cannot end when death comes to the physical body. Matter is only the husk; the spirit is reality. Matter exists only because spirit animates it. When spirit, the life force, withdraws, matter crumbles into dust. But the spirit, which is the individual, does not crumble into dust. The spirit is immortal; it cannot die. Death is its second birth.

    It first came when it was born into your world and began to manifest through a physical body. The second birth comes when the spirit says farewell to the physical body and continues in unbroken sequence its eternal path on the road of infinite progress. You cannot die. Life is deathless.

    So there is the evidence that you, an individual, immortal spirit, will continue after the death of your body. Everything that constitutes your individuality will persist. You will have consciousness, awareness, memory; the power of reason and to express love, for love is an aspect of the Great Spirit. Love in its highest form is divine, and love, like life, is deathless.

    Why do we come back to you? It would be easy to say farewell for ever to earth with all its heartaches, its problems, its sufferings, its trials, its difficulties. But we love you, and there are others who are bound to you by ties of love just as strong.

    Love is a mighty force in the universe. It is love that is expressed by all advanced beings in our world whose only desire is to serve you. We seek nothing for ourselves. We require no worship, no adoration, no gratitude. If we succeed in helping, all we ask is that you express your thanks to the Great Spirit and, because of what you have received, try to serve others.

    The greed in your world must be replaced by love, because love is an expression of the spirit. Love has many aspects – compassion, service, friendship, co-operation. You are all parts of one another, whatever you are, whoever you are and wherever you may be. Colour, class, nationality, language: these constitute only physical differences. Spiritually you are all members of one another.

    You make up the vast human spiritual family because the common link of the spirit binds you all to one another with a tie that cannot be broken, just as it binds you all to the Great Spirit. The spirit that binds you is stronger than any of the physical differences that separate you from one another. You have to allow that spirit to express itself to its fullest capacity.

    You must learn self-regeneration. You must forget self, insofar as being materialistic in desire is concerned. This is not to say that you should overlook your physical needs. You must sustain the body, which is the temple of the spirit. Equally, however, you must tend and care for all the attributes of the spirit, which is the eternal you. You must allow the divinity within you to attain its fullest expression, so that you practice the brotherhood and sisterhood which is a natural fact of your being. The soul is not white, yellow, black or red. The soul has no colour or racial bar.

    This is what you have to learn to practice. Superiority comes only when you unfold the divinity within you and it expresses itself in love and compassion and consideration, not only for all the other human beings in your world but for the animals who share this planet with you. You must abolish needless cruelty and exploitation everywhere. Peace will come when you put into practice the facts that appertain to your spiritual origin and destiny.

    In everything I say I am governed by the desire to be helpful, to bring some understanding, some knowledge, some truth and some wisdom into your lives. It is possible that the principles that we enunciate may be contrary to certain theological ideas of doctrines, dogmas and creeds on which you have been nurtured from childhood days. Our appeal is directed to your reason. If there is anything we say or do that insults your intelligence or makes your reason revolt, do not accept it.

    We desire to win your reason, your intelligence, so that you may co-operate with us and be instruments of the Great Spirit in ensuring that the divine will must prevail. You will help to speed the coming peace in your world.

    As you learn to fulfil yourselves you will obtain as a result a richness, radiance, steadfastness, resolution, awareness and inner peace. You will be in harmony with the laws that the Great Spirit devised and even with the Great Spirit, a portion of whose divinity is within each one of you.

    I'd usually dive in at this point and suggest a certain bookshop where a large range of books on the teachings of Silver Birch could be purchased. Sadly I can no longer do that as this bookshop is no longer operational so I hope that Tony Ortzen is able to supply them directly.

    I rarely recommend books but I found that Silver Birch was the greatest teacher.... Folks can hardly go wrong with his words. How I wish there were a contemporary equivalent to this wonderful guide.

    Hi mac,
    I did type in the bookshop then realised it was no longer operating so, I had to delete the link. No matter when I read Silver Birch's teachings, i'm always left feeling uplifted and inspired. Books to keep on the coffee table or at least close by.
