Excerpt from Essays Philosophical and Practical: From the Higher Life, Through the Mediumship of James Madison Allen
In obedience to an over mastering desire, suddenly imparted to me from a source seemingly distinctly outside of my own self hood, and asserting itself as a human mind spiritually embodied and individualized, I would take pen in hand and await the further moving of the spirit - wholly oblivious 'to any parti onlar direction or cast of thought, which it might be the design to express, and only intent upon yielding myself up to the simple impulse to write, without having the slightest idea or conception as to what must be written.
