Excerpt from The Voice From Space
This little book is not printed as proof of spirit communication and in it we have no thought of attempting a scientific explanation of any part of our remarkable experience. We began our experiments in 1916 in a spirit of pure curiosity. Neither had ever seen table tipping, one had not seen a Ouija board. Step by step we felt our way and because it has led us into green pastures and beside the still waters, we are impelled to give in part what we have received without measure. In the beginning we made no record, nor did we take seriously any of the messages. There was in both an instinctive distrust, born no doubt of the orthodoxy of our upbringing. What came from the table was, we know now, mainly the work of mischievous elementals: warnings of coming disaster, messages from friends not known to be dead and later found to be living, promises of immediate change of fortune, in fact, just the charletanism we anticipated. We went several times to Spiritist meetings and always came away repelled. It was evident we were off the path, yet we knew too little of psychical research to come back to safety. Then came the publication of Raymond to give cour age to go on, for nothing we had received was more inconsequent than the babblings of Feda. Early in the serious work, I began taking the messages from the bench we used, letter by letter, giving them in words, for always was a pause between the words, to Mrs. Noyes who recorded each one. This idea of recording was not ours, it came as a suggestion in a message from my father who said: If Helen will take pencil and paper and record the message, a Master will come at nine. These instructions were rigidly followed. The original record after being typed, is filed. These recorded messages have come from less than a dozen sources, our near loved ones, a Teacher and Masters.
Automatic writing was not attempted for messages until February 20, 1919, when I had a letter. Since that date, we have had letters regularly, from various members of our families, as well as the three series of lessons, which, excluding personal or intimate allusions are printed here, in sequence. Since January, 1920, when the first Master wrote, we have both received communications. We do not consider ourselves Mediums but recipients across space, of letters and lessons, because our faith is sufficient to put us in harmony with the vibrations of the spheres beyond our mortal knowing.
