"HOLY GROUND"

An address given by the Christ messenger Zodiac through the deep trance mediumship of Miss Winifred Moyes,
at the Zodiac Circle, 15 Nightingale Square, London, SW12, Sunday, 27th January, 1924.


"God, Thou hearest...

"Let this child of Thine be used for Thy glory. Let her be an instrument to demonstrate Thy Love, Thy power, Thy purpose. Let it be manifested tonight that these earnest petitions for service reach to Thy very Throne, and even as they rise in the mind, are heard and answered by Thee.

"God, I thank Thee that Thou hast brought us safely through another week - that, for the time, the storms and buffetings of the evil have been quelled, and that in the hearts and minds of Thy little ones peace reigns supreme.

"Christ, give of Thine own Peace that this harmony may not be destroyed; that it may grow and extend and gather in not only those who seek to follow Thee thus, but the many, many who are as yet out in the wilderness without hope, without succour, and without faith. To these sad ones once more we dedicate our lives - to the healing of minds and bodies, to the freeing of the spirit within, so that they too may be able to look up with confidence into the Tender Face of the Saviour - to know that in turning to Him who sought ever for the lost, they are indeed shepherded for ever more.

"In the raising up of the fallen - those who have stumbled by the way - in this service shall we find our joy and our unity, not only with those who are in this work upon earth, but still more so, that perfect unity with those in the Bright Realms of the Spirit - that unity and understanding which makes the tie complete because in each one is the Divine Spirit working, and each soul turns to its Source, its Beginning and its End - turns to Thee, God Almighty Father, Christ, Our Own.

"Save Thy little ones from the snares of the evil; teach them how to watch for the advancing foe; warn them and steady them as it approaches; protect and shield them through the battle, and then grant that they may have fresh courage and renewed faith to go on again; to know that in each contest fought and won - won so far as the strength allows - that the force of the enemy is weakened, and the resources of Thy children are strengthened. Teach them, Father, how to find Thee quickly, and how, having found Thee, to hold fast to that which is the Anchor of us all.

"Unveil Thy Love, so that the love in their hearts may be released. Pour down upon all Thy healing balm, and grant that the blessing of the Holy Spirit may be ours tonight and for ever - ours in that sense that we know and hold, ours as a gift from the most Tender Father to His little children.

"Gather us close, raise our minds, purify our hearts, and give us spiritual vision, so that we may go forward and contact with that which is of the Spirit only, and thus may be one with that which is of Thee; may see in life - even in physical life - the Love of God and the protection of the Father's care...

"...My children, although you know it not, tonight is a very solemn occasion; it marks one step further, one step nearer to the real, and I want you to try and follow me when I say that in time to come, you shall look back on this evening and realise that out of many, it stands out clear and beautiful against the background of a memory that soon shall be swept away.

"Yes, we are getting now on to Holy Ground, and so you will understand when I say that still more is preparation and watchfulness required in order to carry through the great task that God has honoured us by laying upon us - Holy Ground indeed. You, little children, loving God to the best of your ability - in spite of conditions that seem sometimes to deny the very existence of Love itself - you treasure these evenings, but have not the faintest idea of that which has been placed in your possession.

"It is just the same as happens in ordinary every-day life. When the unprotected and inexperienced are given into their charge a thing of great worth, the elder ones find it wiser to trust to their innocence rather than to explain the nature of the thing they have to guard. With little children, too much responsibility brings worry and attracts the enemy, and so it is better that the nature of the charge be hidden from them, and that is what I have done with you.

"I have tried to teach you, to train you, and to win your love and trust, and now and again I have hinted at what the future held and something of which these evenings were building up - but you did not take it in. It seemed so far away, so much in the nature of prophecy, so utterly beyond the boundaries of possibility or probability, that you took my words as a love-token and left them there.

"Tonight still, must I keep the treasure veiled, still must I say to you: 'Go forward in faith but in ignorance'. Still do I say to you: 'Show your trust in God and keep on the unbeaten track'. But also do I urge you, still more, to make ready for the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, to direct your thoughts ever above the world and not on the world, and to sift your minds and to clear from them useless rubbish - so that when the Voice of God is to be heard, you will be listening, you will be waiting, and you will follow on, holding up in your hands the torch of Light, which is the symbol of Faith, and, going forward without fear, and with a heart full of joy that you have been chosen by the Master of All to do His work.

"Never falter, never ask yourselves: 'Am I ready?' or 'Am I suitable?' - It is not for you to decide - that is in the Hands of God. And if He says to this one: 'Come', and to that one: 'I shall require you', it is not for them to hesitate - it is for them to answer: 'Speak Lord, for Thy servant heareth', and then to do that which He directs to the best of their ability.

"And as you grow stronger, as you acquire the Grace of God, and as you are able to draw more from the Holy Spirit, so shall your gladness increase, and so shall doubts and misgivings fall back and be powerless to try you more.

"It is not for sorrow that the body was given; it was to demonstrate the Joy of the Lord, which even through the thickest troubles and trials, shines like a beam of sunlight in and out the curves, and where Its Presence is, sorrow and grief is withered to the roots. This is God's promise and this is going to be shown. But it is necessary to have those of courage and determination to be the first examples, to demonstrate to the weaker ones that this glorious Truth is within the reach of all, and only waits to be made their own.

"And so I say to you, and to many others, that the call has gone forth for those to undertake this pioneer work, for the courageous to show the way to the others, for the strong to be strong, not only over the things of the world, but over the things of the Spirit which dominate the world.

"This is my next task - to find and bring into your vibrations, into your daily life, others who are willing to endure - Christ's chosen souls, who will glory in the doing, who will take up the staff of Trust and the lamp of Faith, and step forward out into the Great Unknown. Yes, and there are, at this moment, many ready to so lay themselves at the Feet of Christ and to say: 'Lead on and I will follow - where Thou art is light and security and protection - lead on and let me follow!' Yes, this is so, and this only could have been brought into being by the quiet work of these, to you, very long months - the concentration and the wish to do as the Father directs.

"Together we have built something that will stand for all time, and if tests come - which for the time seem to cut into the beauty - I say that by the power of God that which is weak shall be shown to be strong, because the wish was there and the will longed to rise above temptation.

"It is of great things that I speak, so Holy that I cannot do more than touch their outer fringe. But tonight I have been instructed to tell you that in spite of failures, of the overwhelming power of sorrow, of the wayward thoughts and the rebellious wills - in spite of these things which the enemy has tried so hard to make destructive, the foundation is intact, and you are henceforth invested with power, given office as the servants of Christ, and upon you is laid the garment of this new demonstration of the all-enveloping love of God.

"Pray that you may indeed be worthy, that in you the Father may find the bright tools that He needs to carry through His plans, and pray that the physical mind may cease to be your enemy, but may add its little quota of strength to the Spirit - and once that is done, harmony and joy will come into their own, and the upward road instead of representing toil and labour and disappointment, will be found glorious indeed, bright as only the things of God can be, beautiful as only the things of the Spirit can be beautiful, and safe only as the path which Christ trod can be safe.

Upward and onward for ever and for ever - this must be your motto, as indeed it is our talisman here; upward and onward into joy and unity with the Spirit.

"God send down that which is needed.

"My child here does not know what she is to us - she cannot understand, and this too shall be added on the gain side hereafter, because this ignorance has made the going harder, but had she been able to understand it would have been impossible to so use her.

"Thus God's wisdom is shown on every side - it is shown in a way most marvellous to behold, if you could but see it. But each one of you who have contributed to this work shall reap that which baffles all description. You are blessed indeed, blessed by the Holy Spirit, surrounded by the love of God, companioned by Christ Himself, who will never let you fall or fail because, unknowing, you tried to do His will, and in ignorance went forward with a willing heart, even though the mind wept at times over the process.

"Little children, be thankful, thankful that God has been able to find in you that for which He sought, and that after the testing and the trying, it still holds good and will for ever more.

"My children, I said this was a solemn occasion, but in our language sorrow and solemnity have nothing in common. It is that same sacredness that fills the heart and mind and soul with awe, and the aftermath of that awe is joy and gratitude. Let then this evening be shown in your lives, and do not forget that those who are chosen are holy in the sense that Holiness is going to use them. Therefore see to it that on your side, so far as you are able, that that which is pure and holy comes from you. It is enough to wish for this, to ask for it, and to strive for it, for that great gift to be your own.

"And now I leave you for a short time so that the work may be carried on, and so that in time to come, even those with the least faith shall be bound to acknowledge that death is a myth, that life goes on unbroken - continuous, and separation is but a phantom of the evil. Yes, that is going to be shown, and even that is but one illustration of the mighty and enveloping Love of God - of His Presence in physical life, and of the bond there is between the Father and His children..."

(Others then spoke...)

REVEREND DR. HUGHES...

"...My work at present is of a curious nature, so you would think. I am teaching the children - I am teaching the children how to come back to earth and to comfort the old. Little fingers can do wonders, and when one is old and weary - wearied by many years of toil and of strain - the tiny fingers of the children are the most effective for soothing and comforting those who think that love has passed them by.

"This work gives me just what I want. The children can teach me much. The pure, unspotted heart of a child is like the closed bud of a rose which, when the warmth of the sun falls upon it, gently unfolds its petals giving forth fragrance, and sending the thoughts beyond the earthy into the higher realms.

"And then in return for that I teach the children - I teach them and show them the wonderful power of healing which love possesses. At first in coming back they are a little shy - they are not quite sure of their welcome, but once they get to work, once they have seen the brow smoothed and the eyes closed peacefully in sleep, then it is difficult to get them away. They have done something for God, and they long to do it again.

"In the sleep stage the old and the young intermingle - they have much in common. The old - those who have tried to love God, have passed through the complicated stages of life, through the many winding paths of thought, and have come out on to the high road where nothing lies in front but the Promise. Resignation to the will of God? Yes, but something more - the laying of the physical will at the Feet of Christ, knowing by faith that what is is best, and seeing even in the midst of the storm the rainbow and the Light beyond.

"If those who had parted with their children in a physical sense could see what they contributed to the happiness of those who seem estranged from happiness, they would indeed not withhold their bairns - they would know that they were better off, that they were the best off of all, and that the parents who brought them into the life of the earth had, in turn, drawn back upon themselves blessings and powers because of the work their children were enabled to do for God.

"All so simple and yet so comprehensive. More and more do I love that which is simple - and more and more do I see that looking at things with the eyes of the spirit, even the most comprehensive is simplicity itself. That is God's way and the way we try to follow. We shed our cleverness when we come here, and we try to forget that we were anything but little children in Christ, being gathered to His Knee and taught as was told us of old..."

(Zodiac returned and continued...)

..."My children, I don't intend to keep you longer tonight, because the conditions which I have built up this evening do not permit of any but prepared characters to come.

"I want you to understand this quite clearly - that presently it may be necessary, in order to further God's plans, for those who are not very highly developed to come. But here I draw a definite distinction. Only those who earnestly wish to find God can speak through this source.

"The instrument has been prepared to take certain conditions only, and before possession can be taken, those who wish to come have to work and fight and struggle to bring themselves up to those conditions in order to get through.

"I tell you this because I want you to have no forebodings at all. I intend to break fresh ground when the conditions are favourable, but no fresh ground will be broken except by a tool that is clean.

"And now for a few closing words. God said: 'Comfort ye my people'. This, dear children, you can take as your watchword, for that indeed are you going to carry out, and I want you in your daily life to get into the way of sending your thoughts over a wide radius, and of gathering in, mentally, this sorrowful one and that, and including them in your prayers.

"This preparation of the ground will save a great deal of time later on because, sooner or later, the sorrowful ones will be sorrowful no more, and either in your world or in ours, will take their part in the work now embarked upon. It is a most constructive thing to do - this sending forth of sympathetic thoughts, of feelings or compassion, and of the wish to help. It does not matter whether any outward or visible sign is shown to you. I have told you before that the most important things are generally the ones that are covered up. It is an invaluable way of extending your own capacity for understanding humanity.

"Therefore, dear children, all my dear children, I remind you of God's direction: 'Comfort ye my people' - by your thoughts and by your wish to serve them. This is God's work indeed and you, little ones of my heart, are going to gather in many who otherwise would be out in the cold, forlorn and forgotten, so they think, but you are going to show them that God had them all the time under His Hand, and directed their course to its rightful end - the end when sight takes place of blindness - and when the vision has been given them, the revelation and the meaning of it all is laid out for them to see. That moment in the life of everyone is the most wonderful of all, and to those who have fought and struggled, the most joyous, as well.

"Good night, my little ones. This evening, as I said, marks another step forward; it is indeed another milestone passed, and as we travel on, the road opens out, and beauty is waiting to be discovered on either side. Goodnight."
