In this next one I’m holding a discussion with spirit called White Feather who is channeling through Miriam.
Geoff: In spirit you can achieve a lot more things – there’s a lot more learning – there are more people who are able to teach you.
Miriam(White Feather) Yes, we have many – let us call it halls of learning – many halls of learning, as you do on earth, and many areas where the teachers are only too willing to help. You can learn for as long as you like.
Geoff: Yes and also you can create whatever you need – create whatever situation you need.
Miriam (White Feather) Yes and if you have not experienced it then you will be taught.
Geoff: So what is the purpose of having earth where you come down and live a life on earth, when you can experience it all up there?
Miriam (White Feather) Aah! But you cannot experience it all up there because you have not the temptations up there that you have on earth. You are learning in Spirit, but down there on earth it is a different matter altogether – you must overcome the jealousy, the greed and pride – so many things that you must overcome.
Geoff: Yes, I suppose that’s right.
Miriam (White Feather) Once you are in spirit it’s a different thing entirely, providing you are willing to learn. Many go to spirit and stagnate. They continue to behave and act and live, in the same way that they were living on earth but they do not progress.
Geoff: How would those people reincarnate again then?
Miriam (White Feather) They do not reincarnate until their life is kindled again within them that they must do something, but for some it is many, many years that they just carry on without another thought in their minds, but to enjoy their life and do exactly what they were doing before whether it be good or bad, and that they must be allowed to do- because it is still free will even in spirit. Once that light awakens them again, and then they think it may take a long time discussing with those who are willing to help, and those that are always
near and waiting for that time, but it does come eventually in the great majority of cases.
Geoff: Yeah – it is just a matter of time. So life is all lessons. To learn or to help others to learn.
Miriam (White Feather) Only God your creator knows why it happened in the first place.
Geoff: Yes. Also, as we develop, you have in sort of millions of years time – I mean even knowing what you know you could be totally naïve, compared to what somebody knows, who has lived another ten thousand lives or whatever.
Miriam (White Feather) Oh yes, that is so.
Geoff: So if you are going to continue to develop you might as well have fun doing it.
Miriam (White Feather) Just as you, yourself, have seen and felt the love of what you are experiencing in astral, and you wish to continue with that and you wish to have it, living as it were and not to just have it in astral, and then the more you learn, the more you experience, the more you wish to continue.
Geoff: Yes, yes, that makes sense.
Miriam (White Feather) But you can perhaps – just a glimmer of imagination will take you to understand what it must be that calls people to go further and further. What joys and experiences they must be having, to give them the wish to go further.
Miriam (White Feather) It is, as you say, mind boggling.
Geoff: Well and truly.
Miriam (White Feather) How I wish that there was a quicker way of passing on this joy to those who take to drugs, to give them the lift because once you have experienced it spiritually it is with you always, but not drugs.
Geoff: No, drugs are – well again, drugs are just an experience that people have to go through.
Miriam (White Feather) If that is what they wish to do- but they are not in control with drugs.
Geoff: But isn’t it important – that you have to experience before you can teach – before you can teach others.
Miriam (White Feather) Not necessarily because you can see what is evil and you can sense it – perhaps it comes from other lives.
Geoff: Yes, that’s as you have in this life – some of the stronger drugs have been and gone to be replaced by newer drugs, so therefore there is no need to experience them. Yes, it makes sense.
