ABOUT BROTHER JOHNS SALISBURY EXPERIENCE
A few years before this event, someone (the psychic named Diana Wint) had given me a reading (at her Tuesday night Circle) saying that I would soon go to a temple, synagogue or church … there would be a lot of candles … it would be like the Madonna speaks to me.This would be a highlight of my life.
And so it was that while in South-West England we visited several cathedrals, such as Exeter, Glastonbury, Wells, and eventually, Salisbury.At each cathedral, my wife Martine lit a candle to our loved ones (including our former Spiritualist Ministers Ethel and Jack Rowe).Finally, at Salisbury I also lit a candle, while I was thinking of Ethel. Then I sat down in a pew to meditate in front of the beautiful (Chartres) blue stained glass windows commissioned in 1980 by the famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin depicting the “Prisoners of Conscience” created by Gabriel Loire of Chartres (“Chartres Blue”)
As I sent my love and the light of the candle to Spirit, I felt that I was being loved by spirit – specifically by Mother Mary and it seemed that she was telling me that she loved me as much as her own son.The feeling was magnificent.Was this Mary or was this my female Guide “Claire”, I wondered.Well, it felt like Mary.And the statement that seemed to follow as I questioned what I had just experienced was that Mary (and Jesus) love all man-kind, but most won’t take the time or give themselves enough credit to allow and accept that love.(This message from Mary, or The Divine Feminine”, was uniquely for me and yet at the same time, for all of humanity. Jesus implied this same message when he recommended that we love our neighbor as ourself. Of course, mystically, his message also goes far beyong that level on understanding, as well!)
Now, previous to this experience, while sitting on the John in “the Gents" I had felt a presence similar to that of Jesus or (I thought) The Christ – telling me that “the message of Everlasting Life that Jesus taught was as true before He walked this earth, as it was in His time … as it still is today!”Thus it is an everlasting truth – a living truth … made of the same energy that it spreads.Thus the message of the Christ is timeless and it is for all people – even if they don’t believe the message or don’t believe in him, or even do not go to church, or are not Christian.(This is a part of my personal message to humanity, as well.)
NOW WHAT, WHERE AND WHY IS SALISBURY THERE?
The city of Salisbury began as a village on or by a lake, possibly at Clearbury Ring, now a ring of dirt that grows trees along its outer edge.Other nearby areas have been documented to be populated with “lake people” around 3500 to 2500 BC who lived in floating villages, islands made of wooden posts (placed in circles) with reeds and clay packed between the posts. Later these people lived on dry or high land (as the water receded or the land rose). Nearby, on the opposite side on Salisbury, there is a vilage site, on a circular hill made by the Celts or their predecessors, that is by what used to be the ocean or a lake. It is now known as the remains of a Roman Castle (160 AD) called Old Sarum.
In 552 the Saxons and Britons battled for control of the castle at Sarum.In 1075, under William the Conqueror, a Norman cathedral was build next to the castle.And in 1125 it was enlarged.After a major fire in the Cathedral, the Cardinal, son of the Arch Bishop of Westminister (30 miles west) was given permission to move the Cathedral - and the city – to its present location by the river Avon.
P.S. This was the "Lake Country" that Gene Davila told me (in another Circle) that I should visit in England, about two months before going to England on our way to France, to visit Martine's niece, after the passing of Martine's sister, in 2002.
