 @241. iVo[Eo[ɂČ@=1=j      SILVER BIRCH'S OWN STORY @Here, Silver Birch tells in his own words of the long struggle he had before he was able to transmit his message: @@@When I was asked, many long years ago, whether I would return to the world of matter and find on earth a band who would work with me to deliver the message of the spirit, I said I would, as did many others, and my task was given me. @@  I was told that I would have to search and find an instrument and so attach myself to this instrument that I would be able to express through him the message that I was charged to deliver. So I searched our records and found my medium. @@  I watched from the time that he was conceived, and from the moment that the spirit began to express itself\albeit as a little flicker\I brought my influence to bear and started there and then this association which has lasted all these years. @@  I helped to mould the spirit and the tiny little mind and throughout every phase of that life I watched his every experience, learned how to get a close association and I accustomed myself throughout the days of boyhood to all the mental processes, to all the physical habits. I studied my instrument from every aspect\mind, spirit and physical body. @@  And then I had to guide his footsteps towards an understanding of these spirit truths. First, I guided him to make a study of the many religions in your world of matter, until his mind revolted and he began to be what your world calls an Atheist. And when that had played its part in the mental unfoldment, he was ready for me to begin my task of speaking through his lips. @@  I guided him to his first meeting. I helped to bring him to his first circle. And there, in the power provided, I made my first contact\so crude, so trivial, but from my point of view so important\and I uttered my first expression in the world of matter through another's organism. @@  From that day I learned how to obtain better and better control, until now you see the result. We have achieved so much that 1 can register the totality of my ideas and eliminate for all purposes what is in the medium's own personality. @@  Now I would like to tell you something about my mission. They said to me: "You will have to go into the world of matter and, when you have found your instrument, you will have to bring to him sympathetic souls who will aid you to deliver your message." I searched and found you all and brought you together. @@@Teachings of Silver Birch  edited by A.W.Austen, @@@@@Psychic Press Ltd, London, 1991,pp.17-18 @́AVo[o[EʐM𑗂悤ɂȂ܂ł̒ꓬɂāÂłB @Ȃ̂̂ƂłÁA̒n㐢E֖߂ėE̒ʐMgD肠C͂邩ƁAq˂ꂽƂ܂B̗삽̑dĂ܂̂ŁAĂ݂܂Ɠ܂BāA̎d悤ɂȂ܂B @͂܂A}ƂȂ҂ToāA̗}ʂėẼbZ[W悤ɁA̎҂ƏɐڐGĂƂ܂BŁA͂낢ƗE̋L^𒲂ׁA̗}̂łB @̗}قƂA͔ނĂ܂B{l̗삪̖n߂uԂ\ƂA͂ق̏Ȍɂ܂ł\Ɏ̊yڂ悤ɂāAꂪƍ܂łÂĂ܂B @́A̗}̏ȍƐS̐Aׂ̐̂Ă̖ʂŔނo邱ƂAǂ̂悤ɂނƖڂȊ֌WĂ邩wł܂B̏ŁA̗}̏NʂāAނ̂鐸_BߒƂׂĂ̐g̓IKɎgĂ܂B́A̗}̐SƗƓ̂ɂẮA_炱܂włƂɂȂ܂B @ꂩ玄́Aނ̐l݂̕I^̗ւƓĂ˂΂Ȃ܂łB܂ŏɁAނɂ͂̒n㐢Ȇ̏@wԂ悤Ɏd܂B̌ʁAނ́A@ɒR悤ɂȂA閳__҂ɂȂĂ̂łBꂪނ̐_IJԂɉe悤ɂȂāAɂ́Aނ̌gāAEʐM邱Ƃł悤ɂȂ鏀Ă܂B @͔ނɁAނƂĂ͍ŏ̌ɏoȂ悤ɓ܂BāǍŁA͂ȂŁA͏߂Ă̜ߗ݂̂łB́AւGŁAӂꂽłAɂƂẮAɏdvȌłB́A̒n㐢EŁA͂߂đl̔튯gĎ̍l邱Ƃł̂łB @ȗA͒ʐMł܂ł悤Ɋwł܂BāÂ悤ɁA܂ŏo悤ɂȂ܂B܂̎́Aid˂ĂʁA}ǧIȓシׂďȂA̍lĂ邱Ƃ͉ł悤ɂȂĂ܂B @āA̎gɂāAbĂƎv܂BȄw̕X́AuȂ͒n㐢E֓Ăė}oAEʐM̎dɋĂȂɏ͂ĂlXA̗}̂܂ɏW߂ȂvƎɌ܂BŁA͊FToAFɂďW܂ĂĂ̂łB @@ * as did many others ̗̑삽Ă悤 @@@* the message that I was charged to deliver 悤ɂƑꂽbZ[W @@@* started there and then this association ɐڐGn߂ @@@* in the power provided ͂ĂȂ @@@* eliminate for all purposes シׂĎ菜 @@@@@ @242. iVo[Eo[ɂČ@=2=j @@@ But the greatest difficulty I had to face was that I had to make the choice whether I would return to provide those proofs that your world must have to satisfy itself\material proofs, 1 mean, not spiritual ones, for your world does not understand those\or whether I would return as a teacher and teach truth. I chose the harder. @@@ I said that, after all those long years, with all the manifold experiences I had had in the realms of spirit, I would return and try to appeal with love to those whom I would strive to teach.

I would strive to manifest love, never to reproach with anger, but to appeal always with love, and prove by precept and example and by all I did that I was what I claimed to be\a messenger of the Great Spirit. @@@And I imposed upon myself the burden of anonymity, so that I would make no appeal of illustrious personage, title, rank, or fame, but would be judged on what I said and what I did.

Who he is, we do not know. We assume that he uses the name of the spirit through whose astral body he expresses himself, it being impossible for the high vibration of the spiritual realm to which he belongs to manifest except through some other instrument. @ @He is the spirit guide of what is known as "Hannen Swaffer's Home Circle." @@ "One day I will tell you who I am," he told us recently, "I had to come in the form of a humble Indian to win your love and devotion, not by the use of any high-sounding name, and to prove myself by the truth of what I taught. That is the Law." @   Now Silver Birch came into my life soon after I became a Spiritualist in 1924. Ever since then, I have listened, for an hour and more at a time, to his teaching, his guidance and his counsel, and learned to love and respect him more than I love and respect any earthly being. @ @He first functioned in an extraordinary way. A young man of eighteen, an Atheist who was making a study of Spiritualism, went mockingly to a circle in one of the poorest of London's suburbs. He laughed outright when, to use his own words, "old women became Chinamen and all sorts of things," only to be reproved by a medium who, in trance, said: "You will be doing this before long." @ @Although he went away incredulous and sceptical, he returned the next week to the circle and then, half-way through, apologized for having fallen asleep.  @ "You have been in trance," said someone sitting next to him. "Your guide gave his name and said that he has been training you for this for years and that, before long, you will be speaking on Spiritualist platforms." @ @Again, the young man laughed.... @@Teachings of Silver Birch  edited by A.W.Austen, @@@@Psychic Press Ltd, London, 1991,pp.D-E @Vo[Eo[ƌĂł鍂ʗ́A̓bhCfBAł͂ȂB͒NȂ̂A܂łȂBނ͗Eł͔ɍEwɂāA͔̎g̒Ⴂnɒڌ肩邱ƂłȂ̂ŁAĒnɂbhCfBÂ̗𒆌pɂĒʐM𑗂Ă̂ƎvB @̍ʗ삪AunlEXbn[Ez[T[NvƂĒmĂ̎włB̎w삪ŋ߁Â悤ɌB @ŝĂ̒nł̖ÓA̓Fɂ炩ɂ邱ƂɂȂł傤BAĈl̂܂CfBAɐgςĂė̂́ÂȖOɂĂł͂ȂA̐^̒ɂĎNł邩؂AF̈ƌgȂ̂łt @̃Vo[Eo[ƎốA1924NɎXsAY̐^mM悤ɂȂĂԂȂ̂ƂłBȗÁAꎞԁAɂ͂ȏAVo[Eo[̋⏕⓱̂Ƃ΂XāA̂܂ɂVo[Eo[An̂ȂlԂA[Ah悤ɂȂĂB @Vo[Eo[̍ŏ̒n֓́Asvcȏon܂B18΂̃XsAY׋̖__҂A鎞Ah̕nXōsȂĂɂ炩ŏoƂBƂ낪ނ͂ŁAuV}ɒ̒jɕϐg悤ȕςȌہvXɌāAv킸΂oĂ܂̂łB̎ɁAgXԂ̂܂ܗ}߂悤ɔނɌBûȂƂ悤ɂȂ̂łv @ނ́A̎͂΂΂ƎvȂAĂ̂ATɁAĂт̌ɏoȂArł薰荞ł܂Bo܂āAQĂĔlтƁAׂɍĂlAuȂ͂ܓ_Ă̂łvƌāABu_ɂȂ̎w삪OāAȂ܂łƎwĂA߂ɂȂXsAXg̏WōuƌĂ܂v @𕷂̎҂́A܂΂΂B @@@* the name of the spirit CfBÁ̗iVo[Eo[ƂjO @@@@* He first functionedނ͍ŏî悤Ɂj @@ @* on Spiritualist platforms XsAXg̏Wɂ @@@@@@@@@@ @252. iÎ҃nlEXbn[̏@=2=j @@@In those days, Silver Birch spoke very few words of English, and those with a very crude accent.

I have been asked. @ @On more than one occasion Silver Birch, speaking through his medium, has told us to stick a pin in the medium's hand, and then to stick it in deeper. When coming out of trance, the medium has not remembered feeling anything. Nor has any mark been visible. @  "How do you know it does not come from the medium's subconscious mind?" is another question. Well, in some ways, the two contradict each other. Silver Birch teaches Reincarnation. The medium himself turns down this theory and yet, in trance, confounds himself. @ @Then another curious little thing is the fact that until, so that the guide's words could be printed in Psychic News, a reporter started to take them down, the medium always remembered, just as he was going to sleep that night, what had been said while he was in trance. This was because, when consenting to be a medium, he had extracted from Silver Birch a promise that he would know what had been said.

Regularly every week, Psychic News prints a verbatim record of what he says. It is given to our home circle not for our private use, but so that it can be broadcast right across the world. @@ As a consequence, Silver Birch has more followers than any earthly preacher. They belong to every clime and to almost every race, and are people of all shades of colour. @@ Yet, put down in cold print, Silver Birch's words cannot do more than convey a little of the nobility of his character, the warmth of his friendship and the natural dignity of his utterance. Sometimes, they compel tears. We know that we are in the presence, however humbly he may speak, of a high, exalted spirit. He never reproves. He never finds fault. @@ The Churches talk of Jesus of Nazareth, of whom they know little, and of whose existence they have no proof. Silver Birch talks of "The Nazarene", as he calls him, as the highest of all the spiritual beings with whom he has contact, and, as Silver Birch has proved to us, after years of close association, that he could not lie, we know, if only because he says so, that the Jesus of the New Testament is still functioning, still engaged on that divine mission which once brought him to this earth. So, to us, the words, "Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world," have a meaning which the Churches cannot explain. @āAVo[Eo[w𖱂߂Ă鎄̃z[T[N()́ATj̖ɊJĂBŃVo[Eo[Ƃ́A傻̂܂܂ɋL^āATAuTCLbNj[YvɒIɌfڂĂB̔Ō͎̃z[T[NĂ邪A͎̎p̂߂ł͂ȂAVo[Eo[̋𐢊EɍL߂Ă߂łB @ł̓Vo[Eo[́An̂ǂ̐҂̐M҂ĂBÊ鍑XAقƂǂ̖A畆̐F̈قȂ邷ׂĂ̐l̐lXhĂ̂łB @ȂA񊈎ɂĂ܂ƁAVo[Eo[̂Ƃ΂A̐l̐AF̂ÂƂ΂ɎRɔЌ́A[邱ƂłȂB̏oȎ҂̓Vo[Eo[̋Ɋ܂邱Ƃ̂łBVo[Eo[ǂȂɌɘbĂĂÂƂ΂ɎXĂ鎄́AMŐ_ȗ݂̑ЂЂƊBނ͌ĐlȂBl̈ƂĂȂB @LXgł̓iŨCGXɂĂ悭邪A̐ĺACGX̂ƂA悭mĂ͂ȂBCGXƂl݂ĂɂĂȀ؋ĂȂBAVo[Eo[́AނEŉĂc̍ʗ̒ł́AgiUlhCGXō̗i҂ƂČĂBVo[Eo[́AƂ̒N̐et̂ȂŁAĉR悤ȐlłȂƂ͎悭mĂB̃Vo[Eo[AV񐹏̃CGX͂Ă̒nŉʂĂ_̎gkƂĂ̎gA܂ȂʂĂƌĂ̂łB̂Ƃ킩ď߂āA"A킽͐̏I܂ŁAȂƋɂ̂łh(}^C28-20) ƂCGX̂Ƃ΂̖{̈Ӗł悤ɂȂB܂̃LXgł́ÂƂłȂB @@@* It is given to our home circle ̏LiŌǰ͎ɂ @@@ * they compel tears (Vo[Eo[̂Ƃ΂)OɊ̗܂𗬂 @@@ * The Churches LXg @@@ * is still functioning ܂ł(g)ʂ @@@@@@@@@@ @255. iÎ҃nlEXbn[̏@=5=j @@  When, in the pages which follow, you read Silver Birch's teaching, you must understand that it is all written down in the dark by a reporter who uses Braille notepaper, and who, expert stenographer though he is, is often tested severely to keep pace with the rapidity of Silver Birch's speech.
