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.

Go Forth and Talk with Spirits

medium-crystalballZabdiel in his communication with the Rev. G Vale Owen, on December 1, 1913, states the primary reason Jesus was sentenced to death by the ruling Jewish religious order was because He told the people that life wasn’t just on earth; our dusty plane was only a lowly way station … and those in charge of humans on earth were poor reflections of the governance of high spirits.

Zabdiel explains further:

“Throughout His teaching this is the one great motive, and for this it was that His enemies put Him to death. Had His Kingdom been of this world alone He had not discounted their temporal aspirations, nor their manner of life as to its ease and grandeur. But He showed that the Kingdom was of those higher realms, and that the Church on Earth, was but the vestibule to the Presence Chamber. This being so, then the virtues by which nobility should be measured were those which governed rank in these brighter regions, and not the mixed conditions of the lower portion of that Kingdom, as interpreted by the world.”[1]

Being compared to decent, loving, caring, and honest souls residing in the spiritual realm was unacceptable to the rulers on earth. They knew that in comparison they would constantly fail. And this is still true today. The vast majority of regimes are built on corrupt edifices, who are mainly concerned with command and control of the population; not their welfare.

Zabdiel exhorts us to seek out higher spirits and learn about their loving presence. He tells us:

“Also, it is on our part a marvel that men should be found who hesitate on the way, and fear that to speak to us is a wrong, and displeasing to Him Who Himself came into the world for this same reason; that He might show how both spiritual and material were but two phases of one great Kingdom, and the unity of both together.”[2]

Most religions today, the Catholic Church being one of them, attempt to dissuade their followers from direct contact with benevolent spirits. They seek to control knowledge and access. Religions which preach that talking to spirits are really talking to demons, have a point. There are many low and malevolent spirits wandering the earth which may fool the unwary.

The remedy is education on how to detect spirits with our best interests at heart to those that use usGrapevine for amusement or worse. Spiritism was revealed to us to supplement our knowledge and take it out of the hands of secretive orders.

Allan Kardec wrote about how to discern the quality of spirits in one of the 1858 editions of his magazine, Spiritist Review. He wrote about a young medium who was fooled by a lessor spirit into performing nonsensical acts.

The United States Spiritist Council, published the entire editions of Kardec’s magazine for the year 1858 and it makes fascinating reading. The title of the book is, Spiritist Review – Journal of Psychological Studies – 1858, published in 2015. The link to the book on Amazon is here.

In the article about a young medium and how he was tricked, Allan Kardec lays out eight main points to remember when dealing with spirits. Each one is worth keeping in mind when dealing with the “Other World”.

“1. The spirits are not all equal nor in power, nor in knowledge or wisdom. As they are no more than human souls detached from their corporeal body, they present a variety even greater than that of people on Earth, because they come from all worlds and, among the globes. Earth is neither the most basic nor the most advanced. Thus, there are very superior spirits as there are very inferior ones; very good and bad; very wise and very ignorant; there are those of levity, malevolence, liars, astute, hypocrites, polished, sharp, jokers, etc.

2. We are incessantly surrounded by a cloud of spirits that occupy the space around us, despite the fact that we cannot see them, watching our acts, reading our thoughts, some to do us good, others to do us harm, whether good or bad spirits, accordingly.

3. From the physical and moral inferiority of our globe in the hierarchy of the worlds, the inferior spirits are more numerous here than the superior ones.

4. Among those spirits that surround us there are those that attach to us; that act more particularly over our thoughts, giving us advice, and whose influence we follow unnoticeably. Good for us if we hear the voice of good spirits only.

5. The inferior spirits only bond to those that listen to them, that give them access and to whom they connect. If successful on dominating someone, they identify with their own spirit, fascinating then, obsessing them, subjugating them, and leading then as one does to a child.

6. Obsession can never happen but by inferior spirits. The good spirits don’t produce any kind of coercion, combat the influence of the bad spirits and stay away when they are not listened to.

7. The degree of coercion and the nature of the effects it produces determine the difference between obsession, subjugation and fascination.

Obsession is the almost permanent action of a strange spirit that leads the person to be solicited by an incessant need to act by this way or the other and to do this or that.

Subjugation is a moral bond that paralyzes the free will of the one that suffers it, pushing the person to the most reckless attitudes, frequently most contrary to their own interest.

Fascination is a kind of illusion produced by the direct action of a strange spirit or by his cunning thoughts. Such as illusion produces an alteration in the comprehension of moral things, leading to misjudgment and to mistake evil for good.

8. Human beings can always disengage from the oppression of the imperfect spirits by their will power, by the choice between good and bad. If the coercion achieved the point of paralyzing the will and if the fascination is such that it obliterates reason, then the will of a third person may replace it.”[3]

Therefore, for those in the process or just curious about communicating with the spirit world, one must be on guard and weary to whom you let into your house and mind. I recommend you find Spiritist centers where conditions are tightly controlled to communicate with spirits approved by higher spirits. There are never any charges for this service.

Zabdiel lets us know that until we gain a better communion with the spirit world, our progress remains difficult:

“For that they killed Him; and today there is remaining too much, as we see it, of their sentiment, both in the Church and in the world outside. And until men do realize us our presence, and our right of consideration as fellow-members of this same Kingdom of the Father, and not until this come to pass, shall men make much advance in the discerning between light and darkness.”[4]

During the nineteenth, twentieth, and now the twenty-first centuries, there has been an increased activity in the spirit realm on our behalf. With the advent of Spiritism, in the 1850’s the seeds for the Spirit-of-Truth_200pxcomplete transformation of the earth have been planted. Zabdiel defines it as, “light being directed into the darkness.”[5]

A plethora of new knowledge about the realm that put us here and guides our daily life is at our doorstep. It is up to each individual to determine whether it will be7Tenets-small3D picked up and acted upon or not. All according to our free will.

The first place is to learn what the basic tenets of Spiritism are and how your life is planned so you can improve. You can begin by reading The Spirits Book, by Allan Kardec, or you can read my book, based upon how Spiritism has affected my life, 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life.

ITC – Instrumental Transcommunication – Spirits speak to us via electronic devices

worldITCThere is an interesting website – World ITC.

First what is ITC? Their website tells us:

Instrumental Transcommunication (ITC)

“Instrumental Tanscommunication (ITC) means that the messages coming from beyond will be received and/or stored by use of technical means.

ITC is the use of tape recorder, TVs, radios, computers, telephones, and other technical devices with the intent to get meaningful information from beyond in such forms as voices, images, and text.
EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) experimenting produced the first ITC contacts using a tape recorder and a simple microphone. Later on there occurred ITC contacts via telephone, computer, fax, special devices and so on.
The big advantage of ITC is the possibility to prove to others that something uncommon takes place. Not only the receiver of the messages, for example the medium, but also others could become a witness of these contacts. Almost everybody who is really interested in that phenomenon can get and with persistence will get EVP.”

I believe this is one more method by which the spirit world is beginning to communicate with us. We have been told, via Spiritist literature, that where once mediums were incarnated in predominantly religious organizations, they are more part of the general public, since for so long, the large religious orders have not wanted to expose their adherents to the possibility of reincarnation and other revelations.

On the opening page there is an intriguing article about a message delivered from a spirit to a PC (personal computer).
