Rescue Circles and Lord Dowding Part 14
Here's one more excerpt from Lord Dowding's book,"God's Magic". This is a transcript of the seance, along with Lord Dowding's comments as the conversations move along.
Wimbledon, May 11th, 1944.
Medium "LL" [Margaret Flavell Tweddle, watching the scene clairvoyantly]:
They have got an airman. He is asleep. A very huge person. Send out love; THINK him awake. He is stirring – waking up. He has the bluest of blue eyes. Now he sees the boys around him and he sees us,too. James [the squadron leader/guide, killed in 1940] is talking to him and pointing out the difference in appearance between them and us. Then
come two other boys, they are whistling and quite happy. They can’t see us or anybody at the moment. They are in the Fleet Air Arm; one fair and the other darker. One has three bands on his sleeve, the other only one band. Now they see us.
Commander [speaking through the medium]: Excuse me, can you tell me where we are?
Hugh Dowding: Yes. This is Wimbledon. (But he doesn’t take it in).
Commander: How extraordinary to find English people about!
Dowding: Why, what did you expect to see?
Commander (viciously) Little yellow devils! (After satisfying himself of my identity, he explained that he thought they were coming down in the sea). (The word Penang was repeated three different times).
Dowding: Yes. You did come down in the sea, and while you were unconscious you were brought back here.
Commander: Trust the Navy! Where would you be without the Navy?
Dowding: Where would YOU be without US?
Commander: Oh, well, I daresay it’s about 50/50.
Dowding: But the Navy didn’t bring you here.
Commander: What? The underground movement operating over all that distance. What a show!
Dowding: Well, I shouldn’t exactly call it an underground movement. Overground might be a better word.
Now the youngster whose name is Rory has been thinking and suddenly he KNOWS.
Rory: Are you trying to tell us that we’ve passed out?
Dowding: Yes, we are on different planes of existence now. Slap me on the back and see what happens.
Rory (to the Commander). No, you do it.
He does so and his hand goes through me [Dowding]. Now
they both realize.
Commander: It’s like going to bed in one hemisphere and waking up in another. (They are beginning to see James and the boys). It’s the
strangest thing out. Here today and gone tomorrow; you never know where you’ll land.
They are shaking hands with James and the other pilots. The blue-eyed giant turns out to have been their navigator.
Commander: Well, have you got your charts for this new voyage?
James is making the “operation finished" signal and then “thumbs up.”
May 22nd, 1944
LL: Here are two RAF boys wearing “Mae West” jackets. One has hurt his ankle and is nursing it. He is very dark, with a black moustache. The other,very fair, is smoking a cigarette. The dark one is cursing freely; his companion says: “Stow it. Come on. Lean on me. Hop a bit and see where we can get to.” Here are two more coming along. One is a tiny
The Fair One: Where is Galbraith?
The Tiny One: We can’t find him.
Fair One: The deuce we can’t. He is the only one likely to know where we are.
Tiny One: I think I know where we are. I think we are in Germany. Look, the river isn’t far away; but we can’t have been over here very much, there’s not enough damage. Now the fair one has seen us.
Fair One: I don’t understand this. One moment we are out of doors and the next we are in a house.
Dark One: I don’t care. Here’s a chair. (Sits down). They can all see us now.
Tiny One: Wait a minute. I’ll try and find out what the old chap’s (ME, DOWDING!) writing.
Dowding: Yes, come and have a look over my shoulder.
Fair One: Just a moment. You are speaking English. Can you tell us where we are?
Dowding: You are in Wimbledon.
Fair One: Will you help us to get back?
Dowding: Where do you want to go? (But they won’t tell me for Security reasons).
Dowding: As a matter of fact I know where you want to go.
Fair One: It’s strange, but I don’t want to move. They go on asking after Galbraith, who was their navigator. I ask LL, the medium, “Is James there? James, what happened to Galbraith?”
James: Galbraith baled out. (I tell them this).
Tiny One: That’s a good joke! What should he want to bale out for? Nothing happened to us. WE’RE all right.
James explains that the machine blew up. It was blown into halves. Galbraith was able to escape by parachute. They overhear but don’t understand.
Dowding: Galbraith got away with it, but you four didn’t.
Fair One: What do you mean? We’re here all right.
Dowding (to Tiny). Give me a smack on the back,will you?
Tiny One Watch me! (Tries). Oh, you’re made of indiarubber, are you? (Tries again).
Fair One: Stop it now! Yes, thanks, I see.
Tiny One (dancing about). We’re spooks, we’re spooks, we’re spooks!
They begin to see us looking shimmery and unreal. I tell them to look round and I tell them who James is. They see him.
Fair One: (saluting James). Reporting for duty, Sir.
Now they see all the great crowd of the Boys in spirit standing around. The fair one can’t see me any more, but thanks us nicely. He says: “There’s nothing to worry about. We’re EXACTLY as we were.
Tiny One: If we’re spooks, Tyndall’s leg isn’t broken is it?
Dowding: No. He will find he can us it if he tries.
Tiny One. Go on, then. Get up, you lazy lump!
Dark One (recognizing a friend). Why, hullo Bill! You see we couldn’t let you fellows steal a march on us. We’ve caught up – we’ve caught up!
Talk from the Egyptian guide “Z” to this circle,
July 13, 1945
The problem of world chaos is linked very closely with the chaos in the mind of humanity. Man insists on looking outward for causes instead of looking inward. As with the individual, so with a nation. An
individual who has an unquiet spirit will have an unquiet environment. Take any day of your personal life and look closely to see the truth of this. When peace reigned within, all disturbances from without
were unable to disturb and gradually as the hours advanced the outward chaos disappeared. Similarly on a day when tumult and discord held the spirit, though the environment peaceful, unless a determined effort
were made, storms arose and strife and chaos reigned outwardly also, one discord attracting another until you are glad to retire to rest and refresh the spirit in the healing atmosphere of the wider world.
So it is with nations. A nation is made up of individuals. If the number of selfless, aspiring individuals outnumbers the selfish, egocentric
individuals, then the life of the nation will flow in accord with the creative stream. Where the larger number stand for progress and unity, and respect the individual life-spark and seek to have it develop,
then the grit of the few will be swept onward also, with but an odd eruption which will not alter the main course of events.
Where the many are seeking only for self, where those who are privileged to use power and strength abuse that privilege; where those who, seeing this abouse, yet are not sufficiently stirred to clear the
grit away or at least to make a stand against it, then disaster in one form or another inevitably follows. The grit accumulates, the stream flows and spreads until it bursts all bounds – then a nation suffers.
And, if it is to suffer until the last piece of grit is cleared away, then it is blessed.
Take the nation you have in mind, [Germany], study its history, study it deeply – weigh the sorrow and neglect of the many. See which side the scales weigh heaviest; it will be more than surprising if you do not find the law working.
Outwardly it seems many innocent people suffer but the inner life is not revealed to you.
But let us consider only the outward semblance. Who is to blame for the innocent sufferer? You, my friend, you and all the others of your times who do not interest yourselves. How can you be blamed for
things of which you were ignorant? Did you try to illumine your ignorance? Did you open your consciousness to the wider fields beyond your own hearth and your own circle of friends?
Interference? No, you cannot interfere in the affairs of another, but it is possible to tackle gently an obvious evil. That you REALIZE the evil is there is a step in the right direction. Then hold in your mind the positive negation of that evil. Think of it as removed and replaced by good. If the opportunity for action on the physical plane comes to
you, as come it will if your aims are sincere, then, by the very act of will you have been practicing, you will have at your command the forces of light.
Keep you mind wide open and perform diligently the tasks of every day. See to it that harmony reigns in your immediate surrounds – teach others to do the same. Let the gospel of harmony spread, and gradually
that peace and felicity of which you dream will become a fact.
[this philosophy is very relevant today, don’t you think,seeing what is going on around the world in 2010]
