SILENT COMMUNICATION WITH FRIENDS
In his masterpiece The Science of Mind, Ernest Holmes wrote, “It is almost certain that between friends there is at all times a silent communication..”
Just yesterday I had lunch at a marvelous little country restaurant with John Ebb Stewart, a dear friend I have been fortunate to enjoy most of my life. It seemed like it had not been but a day or two since I last was with him. Why? Because I am with him in consciousness very often and consciousness is where life really happens.
I recently re-established contact and fellowship with a unique woman who was a sometime sweet lover and oft-times a spiritual companion and it seems we never lost that regular contact. We have often been in silent communication. I would be reading something I knew she would like and telepathically send it on to her. We were never really out of touch.
How does this work? Well, whatever it is that draws us to people in the first place establishes a line of communication. Like stringing an electrical wire from one place to another. Once you string the line, it automatically sends messages and feelings.
I studied Scientology a while and got one concept that was worth my investment of time. That’s the concept of engrams. An engram is an experiential stamping. It is an experience so powerful that it literally brands your consciousness. Creating a strong positive engram with someone is like installing an antenna between you and them. You will be in touch forever unless one or both of you create a negative engram that un-installs it. Engrams are so durable that it s major psychic surgery to change one.
That major psychic surgery is called “clearing” by Scientology practitioners. If there are Scientology folks out there who think I am over-simplifying the subject of engrams, don’t correct me because the way I have used the concept has worked beautifully for me. Maybe I missed a lot of things that others picked up but I must say this was the only meaningful thing I picked up in my study of Scientology and I definitely came to my study of it with no prejudices.
Sometimes gaining one insight from a protracted period of study makes it all worthwhile. Every time I gain a valuable insight I remain forever grateful to those who created that body of knowledge.
I have often written of Free John (Franklin Jones). He imparted to me the idea of “divine humor” as the highest spiritual state and it literally changed my spiritual practice and my life. It was worth the countless hours I wrestled with his often-difficult books.
The same thing is at work with our friends. We have shared insights and experiences with friends that are communication templates. If we see them every day or once a decade, those templates and antennae and electrical lines we have strung will keep working and keeping us wired up with them.
The longer we live, the more messages, feelings, ideas and energies we share with these precious friends. It’s a very sacred thing. That’s the reason Jesus becomes more dear to us over time. It’s what He meant when He said He would come in and “sup” with us.
Nothing is more special in this life than soul-supping.
