From time to time we will offer select thoughts under the title above,
which in a few words will summarize certain essential principles of
I. Those who believe to be capable of avoiding the action of the bad
spirits by the abstention of the spiritist communications are like
children who believe to be capable of avoiding danger by blind-
folding themselves. It would be the same as affirming that it is
preferable not to know how to read and write in order to not be
exposed to the reading of bad books or to the
writing of stupid
II. The one that receives bad spiritist communications, verbal or
written, is under a bad influence. Such an influence is exerted on
the person irrespective if the person is writing or not. The written
text offers a means of proclaiming the nature of the spirits that act
upon them. If the person is fascinated enough to the point of not
understanding the communications, others can open their eyes.
III. Does someone have to be a medium in order to write an absurd?
Who can tell that among all the ridiculous or bad things that have
been written already, there aren’t some which the unsuspected
and select thoughts
writer, led by some malevolent or jester spirit, represented the role
of an obsessed medium through his writing?
IV. The good, but ignorant spirits, confess their insufficiency regarding something that they don’t know. The bad ones pretend to know everything.
V. The advanced spirits demonstrate their superiority by their words and by the constant sublimity of their thoughts, but they are not
boastful. Be suspicious of those who emphatically say that they
are at the highest level of perfection and among the elected ones.
Swaggering is always a sign of mediocrity among the spirits, as it
is among us.
