I am here, George Bernard Shaw.
Congratulations! You survived my book and my handbook. [The medium had just read his play, Man and Superman, and the accompanying “The Revolutionist’s Handbook.”] You entered a world alien from your own.
No, I most definitely did not have the benefit of the Divine Love on my earthly journey. I could only go by what I observed in past and present history. So without the help of God to guide me, I could only make conclusions that were frankly at times pessimistic. I did not perceive an afterlife with a strict code of justice. All I saw was flawed humanity, making the same mistakes it made thousands of years ago.
However, I was correct in thinking that change in humanity must come from within, without which all progress is really illusory. Without a foundation in the spiritual, life on earth can be seen as nothing more than an ugly joke.
So when I first came over here, it was very difficult for me, for the reality here is so very different. The vicious competition I observed simply doesn’t exist on this side of life. In fact, those who adopted this behavior pattern are suffering together in darkness. This made me rethink everything, and it was very, very painful and difficult. In essence, I had to start from scratch. But because I had a good heart and loved the truth, I was able to make progress and to adjust my views to the new reality which leaped out at me everywhere. And I conversed with many good, pure souls who were that way on earth.
So don’t be deflected from your natural optimism, which I see you possess. Go forward in faith, knowing that these problems in your country and the world, which now seem insurmountable, are really not so. It is ironic that it is I who gives you this advice.
God bless you.
George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 – 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
