How to convince a blind man that light exists?
On the contrary, I’m not here to convince anybody of anything.
This posting is not written to convince anybody of something that they have no experience of. It is meant for the lovers of this world. For those that still have an adventurous spirit. For those that still have even a small bit of innocence left within themselves. And Innocence will give the eyes to see and the ears to hear what is being said here.
It is not intended for you, if you are one of the nay-sayers in this world. It is not for those that have no real experience of love in this world. Because even the smallest drop of an experience of love, and one is instantly transformed. One will immediately understand that existence is much more than just logic… much much more than what Science
Knowledge is a kind of blindness. After spending so many years running after degrees in the colleges and universities, and one will go blind.
Filling up the mind with all kinds of information, one becomes identified with that which one accumulates within himself. Identifies with the cultivation of the intellect, which is a totally different thing from what intelligence is. One invests much... building a barrier between oneself and reality... because that is what the ego is... a barrier between you and existence... between you and a world of love. One can be most assured that one will end up blind as a bat.
It is quite sad... to come across those that live a saddened existence, that have no real experience of love to speak of. Because Love is one of the greatest mysteries. And Science
cannot prove that it exists. There is no evidence that remains left behind from experiencing love. It is a mystery that the intellect (science) will never come to know anything about. It is a dimension that remains off limits to the intellect… and to science.
Science can prove that ‘lust’ exists… that the lusting after sex exists, because it can show the hormones. So, lust, ‘lusting after sex’, is what ‘love’ must mean to you. And until you have a real love experience, you will not understand what is being said here. You will remain in a kind of poverty. A kind of angry state, demanding that life follow your idea of how it should be. It keeps you safe within the fortress of knowledge that you have built for yourself, but unfortunately, it keeps you from being unable to say "I don't know", keeps you from having any real wisdom.
Life is much more than logic. It is also illogical. Left brain is logic, right is illogical. Both make up the whole brain... the whole person. The right side of the brain allows the way for the mysteries of life to enter in to one's being. If you have closed it off then that is your choice.
is all logic. It is the reason why science remains in its infancy, it has not matured, yet… has not even grown into adolescence. It remains immature, as you do also.
It is obvious that if such things make one feel so uncomfortable then it is not for them. If love makes you feel uncomfortable then it is not for you.
But a real question has arisen here… and that question is: Why does it bother you so much? The answer cannot come from someone else… from somewhere else. It is a question that can be answered only by yourself. Looking within to look for this answer and you may find that many other questions will dissolve away just by this simple introspection, "Why am I bothered by the mention of this?".
The words written here are only indicators of something that you have, perhaps, overlooked… some other aspect of yourself that has always been ignored… pushed away by putting some sort of ‘nonsense’ label on it. It is just a simple strategy that one uses to remain blissfully ignorant and in a continuous state of dis-ease.
DOWSING, RADIESTHESIA and HEALTH
“Dowsing can best be explained as to search with the aid of a hand-held instrument such as a forked stick or a pendular bob on the end of a string - for anything: Subterranean water flowing in a narrow underground fissure, a pool of oil or a vein of mineral ore, a buried sewer pipe or electrical cable, an airplane downed in a mountain wilderness, a disabled ship helplessly adrift in a gale, a lost wallet or dog, a missing person, a buried treasure or to help someone with a physical problem.
When first introduced to this method of location that has long defied, and continues to defy, rational explanation, most people react with a knee-jerk response of rank disbelief.
The actual words ‘dowsing rod’ first appeared in print in a seventeenth century essay written by John Locke, who referred to the ability to divine, or discover, mines of gold and silver.
Many people are familiar with the sight of someone walking over some plot of ground holding the dowsing rod and the object than bending or twisting downward.
One of the first medical dowsers was Abbe Alexis Bouly, a Catholic priest, living in a little French seaside village on the English Channel. He became so well known as a water dowser that, after finding commercially important supplies for French manufacturers, he was contracted to do likewise by other industrialists in Belgium, Portugal, Poland and Romania.
At the end of World War I, Bouly was summoned to the city of Reims to be examined on his alleged ability to locate unexploded shells buried in the ground and to state whether they were of German, Austrian, or French manufacture prior to their unearthing. He was so impressive that he was recommended to the Ministry of War in Paris.
Bouly eventually founded the Society of Friends of Radiesthesia, a new word he coined for dowsing, an Amalgam
of a Latin root for ‘radiation’ and a Greek root for ‘perception.’ Looking for new worlds to conquer, he finally hit on what he called ‘the world of microbial vibrations.’ “I was bold enough to tackle it,” he wrote, “but to start with I had to learn about microbes, to study their nature and their influence on the human body.”
Eventually Bouly carried out experiments in the hospitals of Boulogne-Sur-Mer, Berck-Plage, Lille, and the Belgium City of Liege. Put to repeated tests, Bouly was able, simply by manipulating a pendulum, to identify cultures of microbes in test tubes just as easily as if he were observing them through a microscope.
In 1950, at the age of eighty-five, in recognition of his accomplishments, the Abbe was made a Chevalier de La Legion d’Honneur, the highest decoration his nation could bestow on him. In his acceptance speech the newly knighted priest declared, “This Cross of the Legion of Honor is awarded in my person to all practitioners of dowsing. For my part, the award represents the crowning of a life I have tried to dedicated to the service of God and the good of humanity.”
A second medical dowsing pioneer was Father Jean-Louis Bourdoux, who spent sixteen years as a missionary in the jungles of Brazil’s Matto Grosso. During one of his missions, he was struck down with a nearly fatal case of galloping consumption and later by a six-week long fever. Both times he was brought back to health with saps from local plants prescribed by his Brazilian Indian parishioners.
Bourdoux launched into a study of the medicinal properties of Brazilian plants. Following extended talks with doctors and patients, Bourdoux decided to write a book that might help his fellow missionaries care for the sick in outbacks around the world. The main question he pondered was “How can missionaries be taught which plants in a particular region would act as specific remedy for specific ailments.”
In the midst of his writing, Bourdoux met Father Alexis Mermet who had learned to dowse for water from his grandfather and father in Savoy, France. Mermet came to the conclusion that if what lay hidden in the earth and in inanimate objects could be studied with a pendulum, then why couldn’t the same pendulum detect hidden conditions in animals and human beings? Mermet wrote a classic book on the subject entitled How I Proceed in the Discovery of Near or Distant Water, Metals, Hidden Objects and Illnesses. Mermet claimed that he invented the method of ‘pendulum diagnosis.’
After years of study and practice, and another visit to the South American jungles, Bourdoux published his Practical Notions of Radiesthesia for Missionaries, the preface of which read in part: “If you have the patience to read these pages you shall see how, thanks to the new science called ‘radiesthesia,’ you will be able, without any medical training and hardly any funds, to succor both believers and pagans. Perhaps you will be amazed at some of the things I have set down and be tempted to say, “That’s impossible.” But are we not living in a time of marvelous discoveries each more disconcerting than the next?”
Father Jean Jurion, a Catholic priest, born in 1901, spent the first half of his working life as a teacher and administrator in Catholic colleges in the French capital. He was introduced to the dowsing art in 1930 by a fellow priest in the countryside near his home who used a pierced coin on the end of a string, to find lost objects and missing persons. For some time Father Jurion looked on the practice only as an amusement until, one afternoon, his sister lost her gold ring while packing apples into baskets between layers of hay.
Entering the shed where the packing was taking place Jurion, driven more by curiosity than purpose, held his own string-suspended nickel-plated gold coin over several baskets that, filled and covered, were ready for shipment to market and was surprised to see the coin rotate over one of them in the clockwise direction he had established as indicating a positive answer. He opened the basket, removed the top protective layer of hay, then re-dowsed for the exact position of the lost ring. The pendulum became violently active over one specific apple. When he gingerly lifted it from its resting place, there was the ring lying on the apple beneath.
It was only after World War II that Father Jurion began seriously to consider the use of dowsing in medicine. He was inspired by the aforementioned men. He began a survey of all the literature on dowsing but he was met only with a welter of contradictory opinions that, unsupported by experimental proof, had simply to be taken for granted. Numerous precautions filled the pages of dowsing guides:
“…one should never dowse unless one was facing north or while wearing rubber-soled shoes.”
“…one should remove metallic objects from one’s clothing.” The list was endless.
After liberating himself from what he called a conglomeration of ’self-imposed servitude,’ Jurion found he could dowse anywhere, any time, under any conditions. When he began his own first attempts at diagnosis, he obtained excellent results confirmed by doctors. His greatest surprise came with the realization that his most spectacular achievements were related to cases which he thought practically impossible to solve because doctors had given up on them.
A particularly difficult case was a 49-year-old Belgian man. X-rays had confirmed two inoperable cancerous tumors in his brain. He had been given 40 cobalt radiation treatments accompanied by x-rays. Nothing had stopped the spread of cancer which was blocking his throat. He could barely swallow, had lost all hearing and lay in a coma in an oxygen tent. Through the pendulum diagnosis, and use of homeopathic remedies pushed down his throat, after one year, medical doctors found the man cancer-free. Jurion wrote, “…this diagnosis and treatment, which medical specialists could not believe would be effective, amply justifies the existence of the radiesthesia practitioner, who may not be a doctor, but may be a patient’s last chance. …it is our duty to take even the seemingly most intractable cases.”
Jurion was harassed for years and was in court six times, as a result of complaints by the Order of Physicians. “Since they treated me like an outlaw, I have written the book, Journal of an Outlaw, because I care for the sick without a medical degree, and they classify me with embezzlers, con men, and murderers.”
