SAGB, July 1995
Oh Thou whose silence
lies in the heart of every quiet thing, may some touch of Your peace
be manifested in the quietude of this room and bring that
tranquillity to the heart, that deeper peace of the soul to the
quietened thoughts of the beloveds - which brings to the body that
restfulness and relaxation known as health. Oh Thou Great Creator,
may Thy power move in the silence of this room to renew, re-build
and re-harmonise the inner and outer being of each one who waits in
the quietness of prayer.
Peace and Light and Love we set here the sign and seal of spirit
that it may shine in the quietude and be a sign to all who shall
come and all shall go that spirit and earth meet here in harmony and
be here and abide unto the days which are still to come.

Beloved ones, I take
control of the being of this medium that we may clothe truths in
spoken words to be understandable to the mortal mind and enquiring
say to you, At all times remember and know that you are involved in
a great transformation of life here on this planet earth, a
transformation which brings in your own personal power as well as
that of the many, many others who have taken their way in earth’s
experience. Each part is linked and knitted unto the other - spirit
is linked to the human body and person and the human person is
linked to all that lives and breathes and moves in the great realm
of nature; which is linked to the great transformations of plant
and vegetation and in turn that is linked to a slow but gradual
transformation of what you call the rock, the soil or sand which may
appear hard and immovable to you and yet, in reality, it is being
slowly transformed by the action of the plant life and insect life.
It all goes to create this wonderful texture of creativity set into
motion by the great Master Creator of all.
to time try to establish your feeling of unity with the creation
surrounding you. As you become more attuned to that glorious unity
and creativeness you will see some of the changes and marvels which
are occurring, and one of these which may not be apparent to your
consciousness is the gradual evolution of humankind. In the slow
changes of earth’s ways humankind first of all moved from its
involvement in the tribe or community, now comes a slow but gradual
withdrawal from its unity or enclosure with the family. In the
English land of your world today, you increasingly discover the
individual who is walking a solitary pathway and living a solitary
life, and in this solitariness sometimes becoming aware of aloneness
and more often of loneliness.
you who are learning the spiritual way come to learn the value of
aloneness so are able to use your aloneness wisely and well. But
those who have not yet learned this are aware of a loneliness and
isolation which sometimes brings a pain to the soul and heart, a
bitterness and feeling that all is not well with their life and the
world in which they dwell.
creative thought of the Great Creator, throughout all this great
evolution, there have been changes in the way of life of humankind
and a slow and different growth in the animal creation itself has
come into being. Through the years mankind has been able to extend
an influence into many areas of the animal creation so that an
increase has taken place in the consciousness of creatures, an
influence and change whereby the intelligence has been sharpened,
and emotion or feelings have also been increased.
say, As the animal creation is touched by the human creation in
kindness, in love and understanding, these qualities are brought
forth in the creatures and they take back into the group soul the
particular qualities they have garnered or gathered from their
contact with humankind.
alteration in the life of certain areas of the animal creation as
there is alteration in the life of the human creation. As many of
the human creation become subject to isolation and loneliness, so
the animal creation is brought in to give comfort to the lonely: it
may use its intelligence to bring guidance to those who will be
aware of that guidance – it gives of itself. Thus a slow and
beautiful increase in evolution may come about between the two.
earthly world, you discover animals such as dogs and cats and horses
- your domesticated creatures - being used increasingly as aids or
comforters in the lives of persons of the earth; the ones who are
not able to see with their eyes or hear with their ears may be
comforted by the intelligence and care of a loving creature. Those
who are lonely and bereft are often comforted by the gentleness of a
furry animal that comes and sits beside them and makes them aware of
a silent companionship. Out of this silent but beautiful
companionship the animal creature increases its degree of affection
because it receives more love or praise for its increased
intelligence. And when it comes to the closure of its earthly term
of life, it will go back into the places of joy and for a time may
touch the group soul of its own kind to convey to that group soul
the increase of intelligence and lovingness which it developed in
contact with the human beings of earth.
say to you, Be aware of this wonderful interplay of influence, open
your eyes and see some part of what is taking place in your world.
In your own self try to increase the interplay of energy flowing
from you in love and good fellowship unto any creature whom you meet
or may see. As you evolve your own greater degree of awareness and
spiritual development, so your personal influence of life and love
flows out through your aura. As you think lovingly of the animal
near you, your quickening energies bring about a stirring and
stimulation of pleasure to the creature because it is aware of your
influence which it receives as a blessing. Is it not true that the
inner meaning of the English words ‘to bless’ means ‘to convey from
one to another some high thought, some high touch, some beautiful
power, which is drawn in consciousness from the Great Source, and
expressed as a blessing’?
evolve you learn to bless the creation surrounding you. Not only do
you bless the living creatures and birds, but also the actual
herbage – the plants and trees which grow near to you. As you move
around and admire - whether you are aware or unaware of this - as
you touch and think there goes from you a living stream of
stimulating life energy which helps to bring forth from your growing
places a greater abundance of fruits and flowers or plants. In its
own evolving intelligence the animal creature can also convey its
own blessing unto the plant life. The whole becomes slowly but
surely enriched by an interplay of love force and life force.
individual possessed of this knowledge gives to the whole of planet
earth some minute part of their own personal influence, by means of
which all is raised just one step higher upon the great pathways of
evolving life and light and love. If you feel from time to time
that your life has no great purpose or fulfilment, or you think your
life is involved only in useless pursuits, remember you do not live
to yourself alone. Even the most mundane pursuit gives you the
opportunity to spread your influence, to look, to think - and to
bless the creation around you.
Thank you very much, Ramadahn, for that interesting talk. People
are beginning to realise how close and comforting animals can be.
This is true – this comforting is part of the creature expressing
its love towards the human. Not only is this happening with your
purely domestic creatures, but slowly, very slowly, it is beginning
to extend a little further. Some of the creatures of forests and
plains are being touched by the influence of humankind, especially
those who have been gathered or brought into protected environments
where they are loved and cared for by persons who are responsible
for their safety or security. Here too, there is an exchange of
loving energy between mankind and animal kind which will bring about
greater and greater transformations in the fullness of time.
If people become ill through wrong actions, why do animals become
Animals become ill because they absorb an impure magnetic force from
the people who tend them. They also become sick and ill because
they are not taught, as men should teach every creature, to control
its appetites. Men and women are not always wise in the loving and
tending of creatures, for as they indulge their own bodies in the
warmth of comfort, the sweetness of sugar and excesses of food, so
they allow the creatures in their care to indulge their bodies in
excesses of food or comforts which weaken the harmony of their
animal feels very intensely the lack of love or unjustness of a
master when this is extended toward it, and it feels grief and
loneliness. Therefore when you say that men and women become sick
because of emotions, so also does the living creature.
How do you feel about a pet which has to be put to sleep because it
frets for the owner who has passed away?
If such an action is carried out as an act of compassion, it does no
harm. The creature may fret or be unhappy in its longing for its
master or mistress who has passed into the spirit existence,
therefore its painless release from the body will bring the soul of
that creature into unity with the person who loved it. But always
such an action should be carried out with compassionate and loving
thought. If for any reason you need to terminate the life of any
creature, I would say, As you bring this into being, send forth to
the animal the living influence of your loving thought and blessing
from your heart and soul, for that which radiates from you will help
in its spirit existence.
Sometimes it is necessary to take life because of plagues of
insects, for example?
It may seem to you that it is necessary to take life, but if you
become truly in unity with the creation which surrounds you, if you
are truly united and in harmony with all living things that
surround you, then radiations of living force can go forth from
yourself, so that you may say unto the clouds of insects: “Be
gone.” And the group soul will feel the living energy radiating
from yourself and cause the insects to remove themselves to other
places. But until men and women learn this knowledge and gain such
a command over the living insects, then it may be necessary for men
to destroy these insects. However, try to send them some blessing,
some influence of your love, so that as it moves into another
existence the insect itself may be blessed and stimulated by the
soul force radiating toward it.
So we come to the end
of our speaking together, this weaving of words and outspreading of
influence through the auras of the beloveds who are here. It has
been good that we talk in this fashion because it draws into the
room the influence of those creatures whom you remember and whom you
have loved. For a little while there is an atmosphere of joyous
reunion taking place here in this quietude.
As you go
on your homeward way these beloved creatures will continue to be in
the area of your aura for a time, sharing with you some part of the
joy and feeling of freedom which they have in the great free life of
spirit - and as you are aware of that joy and free-ness may it
become of understanding unto you. As you go forward into the days
which are still to come may you enjoy the feeling of freedom, the
happiness of the great, natural world around you. Despite the many
errors taking place in the earthly world, see that the Great Master
Creator is still at work bringing comfort, bringing light and love
wherever it is possible.
thanks to You, oh Thou Great Master Creator, the Giver of all good
things, we give thanks unto You for Your holy laws of love and all
that has been and all that will be therein contained.
