“Deepening My Spiritual Life” - Rev. Sam Trumbore
Living Life in Between | A Blog About Spiritual …
Other psychics have given me past-life readings, and they described several other moments that were way over-the-top and fit neatly into dynamics of my current lifetime. I have them all on tape. In one reading I was an uppity former-slave-turned-entrepreneur in the Deep South who was tortured to death during Reconstruction by a person whom I rescued in this life. I broke into tears when hearing the story, which was highly unusual behavior for me. The psychic told me that I am taking care of somebody in this life who was abandoned by my untimely demise in that life. If so, paying back that karma has been a happy experience, and that reading also helped me understand perhaps why I have avoided Americas South in this lifetime. Who knows where any of those former and current events stand in my karmic process? I sure do not, but the connections and resonances were often very dramatic, given to me by people who had never met me before. I have come to accept such events as coming with the territory of my adventures.

THE Rev. R. J. CAMPBELL, M.A., who presided, said: In introducing the lecturer to a City Temple audience it is not my desire to indulge in personalities which might be embarrassing to her, but I feel it is due to ourselves to say that we recognise in Mrs. Besant one of the greatest moral forces of the day. She has well earned the respect now so freely accorded to her by the British public, and by many thousands of thoughtful men and women all over the world. In time past she has had to sacrifice much for her fidelity to what she believed to be the truth. It is rare in such a case that strength of conviction is untainted by any trace of bitterness or intolerance. In proportion to the price that has had to be paid for one’s convictions is the intensity and, sometimes shall we say, the dogmatism, and even intolerance, with which they are held; but if there is one outstanding characteristic of Mrs. Besant’s public life it is the entire absence of any trace either of bitterness or intolerance in her dealings with others. She looks for truth beneath all formal statements of belief; she excommunicates no one; and, therefore, as her acquaintance with life is so wide and deep, she has earned the position of a great spiritual teacher, and it is as such that we welcome her to the City Temple tonight.
