Gordon Higginson comment on SPIRIT GUIDES; -
Spoke on. He said that he had attended many Spiritual services and seldom heard the word “God”, apart from a brief mention in the opening prayer. Someone else chipped in with “I even heard a prayer when God was not mentioned”. During the discussion that followed many thought that God was being ignored and some amazing Spirit Guides and Mediums had taken his place.
The Dalai Lama is a man of peace. In 1989 he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent struggle for the liberation of Tibet. He has consistently advocated policies of non-violence, even in the face of extreme aggression. He also became the first Nobel Laureate to be recognized for his concern for global environmental problems.
He has travelled to more than 67 countries spanning 6 continents. He has received over 150 awards, honorary doctorates, prizes, etc., in recognition of his message of peace, non-violence, inter-religious understanding, universal responsibility and compassion. He has also authored or co-authored more than 110 books.
His Holiness has held dialogues with heads of different religions and participated in many events promoting inter-religious harmony and understanding.
Since the mid-1980’s, he has begun a dialogue with modern scientists, mainly in the fields of psychology, neurobiology, quantum physics and cosmology. This has led to a historic collaboration between Buddhist monks and world-renowned scientists in trying to help individuals achieve peace of mind. This has also led to the introduction of modern science in the traditional curriculum of Tibetan monastic institutions re-established in exile.
3 Evidence for the
Soon after I began my experiments with the dowsing rods, it became apparent that my mind was very much responsible for whatever I discovered. I had to fix in my mind the sort of objects I wanted to locate. Retaining a provisional imaginary image also helped, as did spoken descriptive repetition of whatever was being sought. The rods seemed to be necessary tools and indicators to enable me to link up with the unseen, imagined, objects.
Obstacle Avoidance Experiments
Encouraged by that result, I decided to go one stage further. Could the rods, after having detected an obstacle, indicate to me the unobstructed way I should walk to avoid it? Again, with the help of my two assistants, the obstacles were placed randomly, as before, to obstruct my blind walking. As before, the rods warned me
Spatial Positioning Experiments
I discovered, also, if I believed strongly enough, in an arbitrary manner and without any evidence, that there was something underground at particular locations, the rods would obligingly cross when I walked over those locations. This revelation led me, later, to be sceptical about the claims of some dowsers that they were able to detect Earth-energy (ley) lines in the vicinity of ancient sites. Currently, to my knowledge, there have been no tests devised to validate those claims.
