I ENJOY reading your column and agree with everything you say (Issue 1421).
Maybe that is because I am also a Spiritualist
I am also a healer and although I do not have many patients these days I still send distant healing, which as you know has a similar effect.
I AGREE with your column about the East (Issue 1420).
It is a pity the powers- that-be do not have the guts to say anything against the Muslims.
My wife and I came to Spain 15 years ago as we could see what was happening in England. We have no regrets with the decision we made.

GOOD God, did I have some religion through the mail last week! I even had a few from men of the cloth and considered myself duly honoured, I might add. Some arrived from fellow Spiritualists and it never ceases to pleasantly surprise me just how many do follow the path of the Tao, some even without realising it.
The problem I do find with a large number of those who follow other beliefs is that when they endeavour to get their point across, they often miss the point altogether.
In the first place, Spiritualism is not a religion at all. Spiritualism is a way of life. There is no point in trying to convince me that Jesus is the true path or Muhammed or Buddha, or any other prophet.
When I say I believe in ‘all that is’ I mean it literally. I accept all of them. I also accept serial killers, rapists, child abusers and handbag snatchers. That doesn’t mean that I condone them. Of course, I don’t.
It simply means I’m not in denial about anyone. The one overriding belief that Spiritualists hold is an unwavering faith in reincarnation. To me, it’s the only thing that truly makes any sense.
I consider it extremely arrogant to believe that how you conduct yourself in one brief lifetime should be enough to reach the end of the journey in glowing triumph. To me it can’t be that easy.
The soul cannot possibly move to a higher plain with the short experience of one lifetime. What about the soul of a baby who only survives a few days, or even seconds? Does it join on a par with the missionary who has dedicated 70 or 80 years to the service of others? Of course not.
But it does make sense if a baby’s soul had reincarnated many times in past lives and on this occasion simply needed the experience of a short manifestation.
Spiritualists believe there are seven soul levels:
BABY. ‘Sparks’. Souls that are cast from the creator and manifest in people who often appear frightened and insecure; with almost no perception of right and wrong.
INFANT. Those who prefer small communities and are inclined to use minor courts of law excessively.
YOUNG. The movers and shakers of the world (Margaret Thatcher, J F Kennedy).
MATURE. Those who begin to question their existence; why are we here, etc. Inclined to be explorers, scientists and so forth.
OLD. Those that seem to attract younger souls around them and favour gardening and more philosophical lives.
TRANSCENDENTAL. Those who are reaching the end of their journey and can choose where or whether to manifest or not. Gandhi was one.
And INFINITE. Where the journey has been completed and all the knowledge of the Creation and its secrets are encompassed within. The soul has rejoined its creator.
Keep the Faith
