One of our subscribers sent us the following conversation, between
him and one of his friends whose loss had been very difficult for
him, received through an unknown medium, since he is not a medium
himself. Besides the remarkable elevation of thought, we will see evidence
that the bonds formed on earth, when they are sincere, are not broken by
First dialogue, December 28th, 1860
1. (Evocation) Appeal to the spirit of Jules P…, who was so dear to
me, to kindly communicate with me. – A. Dear friend, I respond
to your appeal; my willingness is as great as my surprise for I did
not expect to be able to communicate with you but in a distant
time, according to God’s will. How glad I am for seeing this time
shortened by your will and for being able to tell you how much
my earthly trial has served my progress! Although I still remain somewhat errant, I feel very happy and do not cherish any other
thought but the appreciation for God’s works, allowing me to
enjoy all the wonders that he sees useful to me, allowing me to
expect a rebirth in a superior world, where I will then climb the
fortunate ladder that will take me to supreme happiness. May
you, dear friend, by listening to me, see in my words a presentiment
of what awaits you! On the final day I will take your hand
and show you the way that I have followed for some time now
with so much joy. You will have a guide in me as you had a loyal
friend in our earthly life.
2. Can I count on you, dear friend, to achieve the happy objective
that you let me foresee? – A. Do not worry; I will do my
best so that you move in that direction where we will meet
again with so much emotion and pleasure. Like in the old
days, I will come to give you the testimony of my heart that
was so dear to you.
3. From what you are saying, must I conclude that you are much
happier now than in your previous life? – A. No doubt, dear
friend, very happy indeed, and I could not say enough. What a
difference! No more troubles, sadness, physical and moral sufferings.
And with that, the vision of everything that was dear to us! I
have been by your side many times. I followed you in your career!
I saw you when you did not think of me by your side, thinking
that I was lost forever. My dear friend, life is precious to the spirit;
even more precious when it is kind and when man can use it for
his own advancement both on Earth and beyond. Rest assured
that everything harmonizes in God’s designs to make his creatures
happier, and what is only required on their part is to have a
heart to love and to bow their heads to be humble; one will then
elevate even higher than ever imagined.
4. What can I do to please you? – A. Adorn your thoughts like a
NOTE: A discussion was established about the meaning of this
answer. The spirit then added: When I say your thoughts adorned
like a flower, I mean, when you pick flowers you must sometimes
think of me. What I want you to understand is that this way you
will touch me by one of your feelings.
5. Farewell, dear friend. I will take with great pleasure the next opportunity
I may have to evoke you. – A. I will be waiting impatiently.
Goodbye, dear friend.
Second dialogue, December 31st, 1860
6. (Evocation) A renewed request to my friend to give me a communication
that may be useful to my own instruction. – A. Here
I am again, my friend. I am glad I can tell you once again how
dear you were to me! I want to give you proof of that with my
most elevated thoughts. Yes, my friend, matter is nothing; pay no
mind to it and have no fear; the spirit is everything; it is only the
spirit that remains forever, an unstoppable life through the paths
delineated by God. The spirit sometimes stops before a cliff or
another to take a deep breath, but while keeping the eyes on our
Creator courage is promptly recovered and the transient difficulties
are soon overcome; the spirit climbs way up high and admires
the benevolence of God who gives the required strengths in the
right measure. The spirit then advances. The heavenly paradise
shows before his eyes and his heart. He moves on and soon becomes
worthy of the foreseen heavenly fate. Dear friend, fear no
more; my courage is doubled, my strength ten times higher than
when I left your Earth. I no longer doubt the predicted happiness
compared to that which I enjoy, it is greater than the most
brilliant precious stone in the simplest ring! There you see the
greatness behind God’s wishes and how difficult it is to the human
race to appreciate it and to understand its reach! Even your anguage cannot help us when we want to explain what seems
incomprehensible to you.
7. Do you have anything to add to these beautiful thoughts? – A. I
have not finished yet, no doubt, but I wanted to give you proof of
my identity. Whenever you wish I will give you new ones.
OBSERVATION: These are moral proofs and there is no material
sign here and not even some foolish questions that some
people use sometimes, for the purpose of identity. Moral proof is
the best and safest since material signs can always be imitated by
deceiving spirits; here, the spirit is recognized by his thoughts, his
character, elevation and nobility of style. A deceiving spirit could
certainly try to imitate in this respect but it would be nothing
more than a crude imitation and since it would lack substance he
would only imitate the exterior. In fact, such a role could not be
played for very long.
8. Since you come with such a benevolent mind, I would gladly enjoy
it longer and ask you to please continue. – A. I will tell you
this: open the book of your destiny, The Gospel my friend; it
will give you an understanding of many things that I cannot express.
Forget the words; feel the spirit of this holy book and you
will find there all the consolations that your heart needs. Don’t
worry about obscure terms. Seek the actual meaning and your
heart will interpret it as it must be understood. I am more aware
now and see our big mistake as analyzing it so coldly when alive.
I recognize now that the heart could have happily served me, I
could have extended further the valuable lessons left by our divine
Teacher and drawn from the much-needed relief that escaped me.
9. Thank you and goodbye my dear friend. I will gladly use the first
occasion to evoke you again. – A. I will come as I did today. I will
do my best.
