Type of Spiritual Experience
It is worth noting that he later finds out that 'Jesus' isn't Jesus but a spirit helper, both living and able to go out of body to help him
A description of the experience
The Boy who saw True - Nov 12th
I am feeling much better to-day, though I'm not allowed to get up yet. While I've been lieing in bed I've been sort of dreaming about things that seem to have happened ages ago, and as if I was somebody else and yet somehow was me all the time. It's like as if I was remembering things. The people I saw were all dressed up in funny old-fashioned clothes like one sees in picture books and stories about history. I couldn't make it out at all. Then while I was puzzling my head over it yesterday I suddenly saw Jesus and heard him say, though it sounded rather far off,
"My son, this is not your first life on earth, for each of us has lived many times before, and what you have seen are memories of the past which have been stored in the soul."
He told me I'd soon remember a lot more things, and I wasn't to be upset if some of them are bad. He said people who don't remember their mistakes make them again, but people who remember them can learn wisdom. …..Upon my word, I do love Jesus. But it's a queer thing, I'm not so surprised at what he said about living before, because deep down in my bones I've many a time felt that some of me is very very old".
I'm going to be allowed to get up next week.
