AN INTRODUCTION TO SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE
Presented By Sir Arthur Via A Medium In 1983
[EDITOR'S NOTE: THIS INFORMATION WAS OBTAINED THROUGH AUTOMATIC WRITING BY A MEDIUM. IT WAS PRESENTED IN THE FALL 1983 EDITION OF THE SPHERE NEWSLETTER (NO LONGER IN PUBLICATION). IT IS PRESENTED JUST AS IT WAS WRITTEN. SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE, BEST KNOWN FOR SHERLOCK HOLMES, WAS AN AVID SPIRITUALIST AND DEVOTED MOST OF HIS ADULT LIFE TO SPIRITUAL PURSUITS. AN OVERVIEW OF SIR ARTHUR'S SPIRITUALIST WORK IS PRESENTED IN JOHN G. FULLER'S, THE AIRMEN WHO WOULD NOT DIE, PUBLISHED IN 1978. THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST MODERN PRESENTATION OF LIFE AFTER DEATH THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN.
I HOPE YOU ENJOY SIR ARTHUR'S MESSAGE]
(In this issue, we have a guest editorialist. If you can't accept the source of this information, ignore it and read the words for they are timely and offer hope for the future.)
I bid you greetings and would like to introduce myself. I am Arthur Conan Doyle and I am quite pleased at the opportunity to get into print again. Of course, since I died on July 7, 1930 it must be stated that I am a genuine Ghost writer. But since some of my best friends are ghosts, I suppose that is all right.
Now to the business at hand, we here on the "other side" are quite concerned at the state of affairs existent in the world today. We have worked long and hard to point out the dangers that portend for the future, but still many of you are not listening. And herein lies the danger. Many people must hear and accept the spiritual truths to avert the disasters that are looming on the astral plane. Open your MINDS and your hearts. Pay heed to your Subconscious, be quiet and listen to the voice within.
Those of you who are reading this message have probably had an interest in the psychic for some time. But I say to you now that it requires more than an interest, the spiritual needs of mankind are wanting and I charge each of you with a mission; you must spread the spiritual truths to your fellow man despite the fact that some will not listen. For now, the many will listen because they are ready. And you are ready. Put fears aside. Do indeed know that there is a greater existence beyond the present one. I am living proof, so to speak, of this fact. In my life, as the editor was so kind to include in the Profiles section, I was skeptical for many years. Being a practical man, I could not believe that something as wonderful as spirit actually existed. And lord knows there were more than a few to affirm this notion. But as time passed, I began to see more, and I had to put aside my pragmatism and accept that which logic denied, the existence of spirit. And my friends, so must you. There are few things in life that are certain, and death is one of them. Ignorance of death is counterproductive.
I give thanks to my channel for allowing me to write these words. I will come again from time to time for it is my mission also to educate people to spirit.
A. Conan Doyle
