EXPERIENCES IN SPIRITUALISM WITH MR. D. D. HOME. BY VISCOUNT ADARE, [Windham Thomas Wyndham-Quin 1841-1926] WITH INTRODUCTORY REMARKS BY THE EARL OF DUNRAVEN. [Viscount Adare's father] 
From Séance no 25 at Ashley House
Question-I had a question put to me the other day as regards the comparative truth of different sects, which I answered according to my ability. I should be glad to know if I answered with anything like truth.
Answer.-There is truth in every religion: even the poor Pagan, who bows down before his idol, possesses the germ of truth, inasmuch as he worships something outside and beyond himself. It is very wrong-oh, very wrong indeed, to say there is only one portal to heaven; were that the case, there would be few indeed who would arrive there. You are right in supposing that the form of religion which is best suited to a man, though it may contain a smaller proportion of truth than another form, is yet the best for him; being the most adapted to his character and mind, it is that in which he can expand and improve himself to the best advantage. A good answer for you to have given would be : ‘Spirits teach individuality of spirit.'
As you leave this world you are apt-oh, very apt indeed-to continue for a long time. Those who seek not to raise themselves, and look not for truth, must continue as they were until they - to use a common expression - find it does not pay; then they will try to improve and will do so. There is this individuality; and a man is apt to get around him an influence agreeing with himself.
Like seeks like everywhere - it is a universal law. The crow cannot consort with the eagle, or the magpie with the dove.
Question.—Have we not better opportunities here than we shall ever have hereafter of forming ourselves ?
Answer - Most certainly, this is your time. If you strive earnestly and prayerfully here, you enter your true life in a state fitted for it. Seek for truth and you shall find it.
