Communication from the Spirit Diogenes

DiogenesMost of us have heard of Diogenes, the philosopher, during the time of Socrates and Plato, about 300 years before Christ, who rejected material goods and was reported holding a lamp looking for one honest man in the city of Athens.

None of his writings survived, only scattered reports of his sayings and activities. The most famous is when Alexander the Great came upon Diogenes. Here is the account according to Wikipedia:

It was in Corinth that a meeting between Alexander the Great and Diogenes is supposed to have taken place.[30] The accounts of Plutarch and Diogenes Laërtius recount that they exchanged onlyAlexanderGreat777-533x800 a few words: while Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, “Yes, stand out of my sunlight”. Alexander then declared, “If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes.”

In the book, The Spiritist Review – 1859, Allan Kardec published an account whereby a group of mediums evoked Diogenes. Here is the report of the account:

14. Is it true what they say about your interview with Alexander?

  • Very true. History has even truncated it.

15. What is it that history has truncated

  • I refer to other conversations between the two of us. Do you really think that he came to see me to tell me one word only?

16. Is the statement attributed to him true that if he were not Alexander he would be Diogenes?

  • He might have said that but not in my presence. Alexander was a crazy, vain and proud young man. In his eyes, I was nothing more than a beggar. How could the tyrant be educated by the miserable?

17. Have you reincarnate on Earth after your life in Athens?

  • No, but in other worlds. I currently belong to a world in which we are not slaves. It means that if you were evoked in a state of vigil you could not attend the request. As I do tonight.

18. Could you delineate to us the qualities that you were looking for in man, how you conceived it then and how you conceive it now?

  • In the past: courage, boldness, self-confidence and power over people by intelligence. Now: abnegation, kindness and power over people by heart.
    • [The Spiritist Review – Journal of Psychological Studies – 1859, 2015, United States Spiritist Council, p. 33]

There are two significant revelations in the spirit communication above. First is when Diogenes says he lives in a world where people are not slaves. This sounds to me like a remark made to a college freshman, who is regulated when he or she can enter or leave the dorms from a person who has graduated and moved on. I believe this short sentence from Diogenes perfectly illustrates our plight on earth. We are students, closely monitored, with little freedom of action, during our required period in our school of life.

Once we are done with our mandatory training, we will be given the luxury of increased freedom of movement. We will be trusted citizens of the spirit universe.

The second important statement is Diogenes’ refactoring of his original list of qualities, from courage KindleCoverand boldness to abnegation, a rejection of the glory and riches that quickness of action and power over people brings us. Power from the head is replaced by motivation from the heart. All central to the principles of Spiritism.

Perseverance in Goodness – (verse 24) – YouTube

Perseverance in Goodness – (verse 24) – “How to Live” with Brian Foster of nwspiritism.com– from the book “How to Live – Inner Peace through Spiritism”

Perseverance is the secret to a fulfilled life. We all know this, for we learned it as a child, and we have mostly ignored it since. Our culture of rapid gratification – internet pages must load within two seconds – movies must have action before the opening credits – all promote the abandonment of any pursuit that encounters the smallest obstacle or delay.

The Lower Zone – Not Hell and Not Heaven

umbra-scene“The Lower Zone”, we have all been there, between lifetimes at one epoch or another. It’s a place where not horrible and not spiritual people go to after they leave their body. It’s meant to be a temporary location, a way station, for those who haven’t yet made up their minds to follow the ways of love, charity, fraternity, and honesty. When one finally realizes the benefits of the golden rule, and the overriding love of God, then the door is unlocked and you are assisted out and up to a higher level. A celestial city. Read More.

Death Bed Agony – It May Not Be What It Seems – We have all witnessed, in movies at least, the scenes of an agonizing death, one that we wished could be cut short for the poor person experiencing horrible last minutes on earth.

Our Physical World is Actually Created by Thought

mountain-moving-faithIn the spirit realm thought is action, thought creates, thought destroys, and thought is the reality. In our physical world, we believe that many discoveries and actions begin with thought, but in parallel with our human thinking, our planet and our universe carries on ruled by natural laws. Natural laws which dictate how stars are formed, planets are created, continents grow and collide, how the weather changes, how our very buildings stand and eventually decay. All unaffected by human minds. Read More.

Spiritism 101 – The Third Revelation

Spirit-101-Front-smallI have created an Amazon Kindle and a paperback book which covers the basic principles of the Doctrine of Spiritism. I have set the lowest price available ($0.99) on Amazon Kindle so anyone should be able to download the book on their reader.

I wrote the book because when my wife and I first opened our Spiritual Center on Bainbridge Island, WA, I was amazed that people were interested in Spiritism, yet had absolutely no knowledge of it.

Here is the link to Spiritism 101 – The Third Revelation

Also, if you think it is useful, please leave a good review at Amazon, it will help to get the word out!

I also have this book in PDF format on the Facebook site – Spiritism and the Spirit World Around Us, in the files section.

Fear of Being Different – Don’t Let Society Silence You

deathofSocratesA minister, of an unspecified religion, passed away. He was assigned a house on the second sphere of heaven. The spirit realm sent a woman to him to discuss why he was unable to speak, what he knew was the truth, to people who needed help with communicating with loved ones who have passed. Instead of assisting those in need he guided them elsewhere, for he was afraid to be exposed to scorn and ridicule from his colleagues. Read More.

Courage to Place Yourself Second to Serving – Verse 23 – YouTube

Courage to Place Yourself Second to Serving – (verse 23) – “How to Live” with Brian Foster of nwspiritism.com– from the book “How to Live – Inner Peace through Spiritism”

The spirit Andre Luiz states that to achieve harmony and inner peace within yourself, you must possess the fortitude to sacrifice your own desires in pursuit of helping others. The messages from high spirits, via Spiritist mediums, don’t demand life in a hair shirt while exclusively tending to the needs of unfortunate people, only that we examine the situation and at times, think about serving first and ourselves second.
