I am here, Robert Louis Stevenson.

I am so glad that you enjoyed my book [The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde] again. I have indeed had long conversations with other authors who, like me, grappled with the enigma of human evil.

I am glad to report that I have discovered, in sureness, that human nature is not divided into two separate beings, as my book relates. No, we have one soul, though this soul can display a variety of trends and directions, and sometimes in a contradictory way.

I devoted much profound thought, in my short life, to exploring the mysteries of life, and though I could not penetrate many of these mysteries, this inquiring, searching nature served me in good stead, for as I became acquainted with life on this side, I found the Divine Love and made It my own. I know how happy you are to hear this. Yes, my inquisitiveness was a valuable tool to negotiate this new world, in which justice is a matter of cause and effect with the previous mortal life of spirits.

Oh, how refreshing it all was to know that justice is real! And how thrilled I was to find the living God through the Divine Love!

Your channeling experience has taught you that a seeking spirit often finds his or her way to this wonderful Love, for the situation here is very different from earth, where confusion can often prevail.

Those of us who gave deep thought to the perplexities of life are often amazed to discover that at its heart, in its inner core, life is not so complicated, and is governed by law, just like the heavenly bodies of the material universe. Oh, had I known this on earth, how much happier I would have been!

We all see what has occurred in the country that temporarily became my home [the United States]. So let me say unequivocally, help is on the way!


Robert Louis Balfour Stevenson (November 13, 1850–December 3, 1894), was a Scottish novelist, poet and travel writer, and a representative of neo-romanticism in English literature. He was the man who “seemed to pick the right word up on the point of his pen, like a man playing spillikins”, as G. K. Chesterton put it. Stevenson was greatly admired by many authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, Ernest Hemingway, Rudyard Kipling, Vladimir Nabokov, and J. M. Barrie. (Source: Wikipedia.)
