Received by James Padgett
I am here, your own true and loving Helen.
Well, dear, the Master will not continue his messages tonight as
you are not so well and he does not feel it best to draw upon you
as he would be compelled to do if he were to continue, or attempt
to continue, the message of last night, and so I will write you
for a short time and tell you of someone here and very anxious to
communicate with her soulmate.
Of course I mean Mary, and she is all aquiver with excitement,
as you mortals might say, at the prospect of writing to the Doctor;
and so I will let her come and write, but you must be careful and
not let her write too long, for what she has to say would require
you, in order to receive it, to write for the balance of the evening.
Mary now writes:
I am Here. Mary. Well, I am here and want to say a great deal,
but as Helen has warned you, I will not trespass very long, and
Helen did me an injustice when she said I would want to write all
the evening. I am as considerate of you as is possible and notwithstanding
my opportunity, I realize your capacity.
Tell my dear one that I have waited a long, long time to communicate
with him, and that although I have the advantage of him in that
I can see what his thoughts are and know just how much he loves
me, yet I also desire to tell him of my love for him, and how much
i am interested in him and want him to know it. He is my own true
lover, and I realize that no other woman can come between him and
me, even as to any earthly love that he may have. And just here
let me say that I am not reflecting on you, (James Padgett) for
I know the circumstances in your case, and how it is best that you
should have someone to comfort your last years on earth.1
But Leslie does not need such a one, and I shall always be sufficient
for him, as he is for me. Tell him that I am very happy in the knowledge
that he is all mine, and that my love for him is always increasing,
and that my efforts to make him happy never cease.
I am now in a higher sphere than when I last wrote him, and realize
what the wonderful Love of the Father means more than ever. Also
with this increased Love in my soul, I have greater love for him.
I am with him more often than he is aware of, and am pleased that
the thinks so much of me and loves me as he does. His life will
at the longest be very short,2 and then I shall have
him with the full consciousness that no earthly pleasure or condition
can ever for a moment separate us, and that the bliss which I have
will be nearer his than he can imagine. I really believe that when
he comes over it will not be very long until he will find his home
with me, and enjoy the happiness of my home - a wonderful home,
not like anything on earth, or that has been conceived of by man.
No, it is beyond description and the nearest approach to a description
that he can understand is that the Father's love is in and about
it to a degree that renders everything beautiful and grand. He must
not despair of coming to me, for he will come as surely as your
sun will rise; and then he will know what happiness means in the
experience of actual enjoyment.
I am so very happy that I can write to him tonight and encourage
him with the knowledge that all these things will be his and forever.
He, I know, is not surrounded by those things which ordinarily make
men happy, but he has greater wealth than these things can possibly
give him, for he has much of not only the Father's Love, but the
love of a soulmate who is all his and ready to give him the real
true happiness that only a union with a soulmate in the Celestial
Heavens can give. He must continue to pray for an increased inflowing
of the Father's Love, and as that shall come to him, I shall be
able to see that the soulmate love for his Mary will increase also.
I would like to write of many things that are here in such reality
and grandeur, but as you must not write much more, I must forego
the pleasure. But this he must know, that my love is all his and
the many mansions spoken of by the Master will prove to him to be
a reality, and not the mere hope that so many mortals rely on. I
send him a kiss, yes, many kisses, such as only angels can send,
and if his soul be opened up to their coming, he will realize what
Good night, I thank you, and with my love to him and the assurance
that I am watching over him, and sympathize with him in all his
earthly worries, will sign myself his loving Mary.
Helen now writes:
Well dear, she has written and says she feels much better, and
I know she does, for she looks very happy and grateful for the privilege.
I am with Mary in her expressions of love and hope and certainty,
and you must believe that these things that she has spoken of will
be yours when you come to join us. Why dear, you cannot appreciate
what all this means to you and to us! We are truly thankful to the
Father for the privilege of knowing that we have on earth a soulmate
- the very necessary part of ourselves with whom we can talk and
communicate the innermost feelings of our souls.
It is a privilege that not many mortals enjoy, and it is no wonder
that men and women are earnestly seeking a way by which they can
come into communication with their loved ones, even if these are
only their loved ones for a short time.
If they only knew what it means to be able to talk to a soulmate,
and have that soulmate tell him of her love and the wonders of it
all, they would become more anxious than ever, and the faith that
they now have would cease to satisfy. But this cannot be so at this
time, and it may be well that men and women generally are not fitted
for such an experience.
You know how much I love you and what this love means, and that
there is no other love in all the spirit world, except the Father's
love, that can so satisfy and make happy.
I must stop now, for you have written enough. But do not forget
that Baby is anxious to write, and you must give her the opportunity
to do so before long. You will soon feel well again and be in condition
to perform your work, which to you just now is the important thing.
So I will say good night.
Your own true and loving, Helen
1 It is apparent from the daily dairy that James Padgett
had another woman in his life, Ella, and that Helen was quite happy
about this. See the entries for Oct. 16, 1919. That particular message
from Helen has not been published.
2 Mary Kennedy got that very wrong, unless it is simply
a convoluted turn of phrase. Dr. Stone passed at age 90, on the
15th January 1967.
This message is a composite, the portion here that is Mary Kennedy's
message was also published in Vol I on page 374.
