The Memory Of Nature

A celebrated occultist says concerning the point just raised:

"Comparatively few accounts of persons possessing this faculty of

looking into the past are to be found in the literature of the subject,

and it might therefore be supposed to be much less common than

prevision, or future-time clairvoyance. I suspect, however, that the

truth is rather that it is much less commonly recognized. It may easily

happen that a pers
n may see a picture of the past without recognizing

it as such, unless there happens to be in it something which attracts

special attention, such as a figure in armor, or in antique costume. It

is probable that occasional glimpses of these reflections of the Akashic

Records are commoner than the published accounts would lead us to

believe. As usual, we find examples of all degrees of the power to see

into this 'memory of Nature,' from the trained man who can consult the

record for himself at will, down to the person who gets nothing but

occasional vague glimpses, or has even perhaps had only one such

glimpse. But even the man who possesses this faculty only partially and

occasionally may still find it of the deepest interest.
