TALKING EVIL WITH ALEX TSAKIRIS -- GORDON WHITE -- RUNE SOUP

I cannot find the original source at the moment. I found it also quoted at this site: https://www.encyclopedia.com/scienc...transcripts-and-maps/obsession-and-possession.
Deepest thanks, Tom. Chris 7 gave us the original source: "Proceedings of the American Society for Psychical Research " III, 1909, p. 586 . And the link you gave explained how James came to believe in obsession. In addition to giving me a new research venue, encyclopedia.com. I am floating!

I would like to give the most reputable and scholarly source for afterlife studies: victorzammit.com. I am active in his FB group: AREI* Discussion. Cyrus Kirkpatrick is great in many ways but I get much more from Victor and Wendy Zammit and from Jurgen Zeiwe. (That is probably a generational gap phenomenon--my riding instructor used to say proficiency is a matter of how long one has been under saddle.)

I forgot about Victor Zammit! Thanks
 
I do not consider the study of evil a danger in and of itself when such study and research are done in the service to the Light and to other souls. So much here depends on intent. This is, in effect, shedding Light on the darkest of soul activities. The more we understand how souls, incarnate or discarnate, become entangled in darkness with its promise of power and control, the better we know what we're dealing with. I think of FBI profilers who study serial killers. In the same way, I don't think they are in danger.

I do believe some people can be triggered by focusing on evil if they have a past life involvement either as a perpetrator or a victim. This is especially true if there is a series of lifetimes involved. If a person experienced evil in childhood, they might also be triggered when they come close to that kind of energy again later, especially if they start to focus on it. These are a few thoughts.
What you say here is pure gospel, Tom. My own approach is based on the idea of a Bodhisattva--not in the enlightened soul sense but in the been there, done that (SRA victim), wounded healer sense. Some of us have to take this on--skinning a 4 year old alive is NOT OK. I honor you for your intrepid work, Tom. And Alex and this forum for their courage.

P.S. I do not bring up the Bodhisattva concept to brag, but rather b/c I came in with no memory of past life SRA and still do not have it. Nor do I remember much about it when it happened again when I was a toddler in this life. So despite massive healing efforts and success since my memories surfaced (spontaneously) 25 years ago, I can go into inner child fear in a nanosecond, and then I have to remind myself (and my inner kids) that I did experience and heal ritual abuse in past lives and have simply forgotten that--for a good reason: I have been more authentic as a healer of animals and children and adults b/c I can identify and empathize with their trauma b/c I have experienced and to a great extent healed it myself. And more authentic now as a researcher and writer.

It's from "Proceedings of the American Society for Psychical Research " III, 1909, p. 586
Here's the book (in PDF format) and the link is set at page 600 which opens precisely to page 586 of the actual book. It appears this book is fascinating.

If anyone wants to have their mind blown - read starting at page 591 of the actual book... wait until you read what this book states was the views about materialism, idealism and spiritualism. Truly mind blowing what this book puts forth as "the thinking" about specifically idealism in relation to materialism.

Thank you for this additional information. You once posted one of Jurgen Zeiwe's Afterlife Answers videos, I think it was #16. I downloaded his entire series... somehow got distracted so thanks again from bringing my attention back to his series and I have made it my goal to go through the series by end of day Tuesday.

You DOUBLE rock. I in fact had found this and read parts of it w/o ever seeing James' quote on page 586. Now I get to read its full context! WOW.

great. And I think this fits nicely with what I heard you say previously regarding the power of our personal consciousness.

I think it also fits nicely with my understanding of the moral imperative... right and wrong... god & light... i.e. if we seek to expand love and light nothing too bad is gonna happen. in my mind it also fits with the non-do-er stuff that we get from the eastern traditions. I have an interview coming up with charlie morley that I think is relevant to these points... particularly the part that was in response to the clip I played from our interview :)
 
I recently learned a little about archons...any thoughts on this?
Well you probably know it is from the Greek word for ruler. In the ancient religion of Gnosticism, the archons were evil rulers, the top one known as the evil demiurge--who created lesser archons to help him rule our world which he had first created. Many today use the tern archons loosely to mean evil powers such as the banksters.

Here's IMO the best source: https://utah.academia.edu/LanceSOwens ; see also gnosis.org

I heard something about how they trick people into going into the "light", only to then be reincarnated again. The soul trap theory??
