This is the second post of a three-part series where we share our early conversations with Khaled. In this post, Khaled talks about himself, his purpose, and how we can begin a social movement. [Click here to read part one.]
As I mentioned in the first of this series, Khaled walked into our lives one fortuitous Saturday morning. Eryn and I were sitting on the patio with coffee in hand and immersed in conversation. At some point, when our discussion segued into the Middle East and the mass migration of Syrian refugees, I sensed a subtle but distinct presence nearby.
I instinctively suggested to Eryn that we try our hand at the board. I say this because—at that time—we had only used the board on several occasions and were novices. So we situated ourselves in the living room with what would become our usual set up: comfortable chairs with loads of pillows, two glasses of water, and a special table that stood at just the right height. Almost instantly, after stating our intention and invocation, Khaled joined us with with all his exuberance—a quality that has since then become his hallmark. The conversation begins…
Elena: Is someone here that wishes to communicate with us?
Khaled: Yes, greetings friends.
Eryn: Hello, welcome! And who are we addressing today? What is your name?
Elena: Is there something you would like to share with us?
Khaled: Much to share with you.
Eryn: Do you have a message for Elena?
Khaled: For you both.
Elena: We are here listening.
Khaled: All this light surrounds you in this house. A hotel for beings of light, love, wisdom, humanity, humor. Yes. Such is the resonance that you are. Beings come to share, a forum for great philosophers to engage with you both, a salon of sorts. And you are great hosts. The new hot spot in the spirit-space continuum. Questions?
Elena: That is a lot of social responsibility!
Khaled: Not so much as it is great fun.
[He moves the planchette in a circular pattern.]
Elena: What are you doing there?
Elena: Oh, okay. So you are a ‘friend,’ not one of our guides related to the past?
Khaled: No. New friends are exciting.
Elena: Yes, of course! Are you from a previous era of time here on earth; did you live here as a human being on earth?
Khaled: I have but as of late have spent my time abroad.
Elena: Where abroad?
Khaled: Off-planet. Not incarnate now. You would recognize me in the gathering energy of love and healing that is local to the Middle East, just so you know. Spiritual aid workers.
Khaled: A magical cradle that used to be my home here.
Elena: Does this have anything to do with my trip? [I had just returned from a trip to Turkey.]
Khaled: No. [It is a] wonderful coincidence in the way you may have lived on the same street as the person who would be your greatest friend later in life.
Elena: [to Eryn] So he is here as a spiritual aid worker for the Middle East. Khaled, do you see a solution?
Khaled: Solutions will come about when people are ready to heal and let go of the imaginary differences. Too much arrogance and pride in the game of humanity’s social and religious and political mechanism.
Elena: Is there something Eryn and I can do in a specific way to assist in this strife?
Khaled: Speaking of a higher way of being and living and experiencing. Sharing with humanity can begin a social movement and inspiration for others, to you, and to join in the conversation from man to man and from man to woman and from man to spirit. And facilitating the exchange.
Elena: But we’re not part of the UN…we’re not in any political position.
Khaled: Better. You have nothing to gain politically. Not like men who pursue.
Elena: So, how can we possibly make a difference?
Khaled: A pebble in a still lake will create ripples no matter how small it is. Or a better way to think: a single grain of sand seems insignificant in the entirety of the ocean, but get it in your eye and you are unable to ignore it. Be the grain of sand in the eye of inhumanity and injustice and ignorance. You do this by just being as a grain of sand is: just a single grain in a large ocean and that ocean is one of many oceans constantly flowing and merging.
Eryn: How can we become that grain of sand?
Khaled: Letting light flow and guide your actions.
Elena: So in just being? We don’t have to move to the front lines [jokingly]?
Khaled: Maybe an opportunity will present itself, which is in concourse with your greatest good.
Eryn: Through writing?
Khaled: Yes. Both.
Elena: Both of us?
Elena: Writing about peace in the Middle East?
Khaled: Wisdom that you have acquired and perhaps if it interests you, we can meet to discuss possible solutions with myself and other spiritual aid workers.
Elena: Do you see this as a possible life purpose for either of us?
Khaled: All is choice. Consider that life fulfillment can be multilateral and parallel in existence.
Elena: As in this is one aspect of something that brings life fulfillment?
A single grain of sand seems insignificant in the entirety of the ocean, but get it in your eye and you are unable to ignore it. Be the grain of sand in the eye of inhumanity and injustice and ignorance.
Khaled: Yes. Precisely.
Elena: If we were to consult with you and your group about Middle East solutions, what’s the best way to spread the word?
[He moves the planchette in circular patterns…a motion indicating he’s thinking.]
Khaled: Begin in this way but perhaps a possibility in your joint channeling.
Elena: I don’t understand what you mean by “in this way” … do you mean through board sessions?
Eryn: [to Elena] But also in joint channeling.
Elena: Channeling who?
Khaled: Me and other aid workers, or in our collective voice.
Elena: Now that we have this, how do we share it? There’s already so much on the internet, in the newspapers etc.
Khaled: Mechanics and strategies are to be worked out later. Begin now.
Elena: Got it! Sorry, I’m so inquisitive.
Khaled: Great connectivity, Eryn, and great inquisitiveness, Elena. Ask and you shall receive has been a mantra of your life, Elena.
Elena: I will keep that in mind next time I want to manifest something!
Khaled: Please do. Much light in you, Eryn, I saw the light and then there was light, is your life mantra, Eryn.
Elena: Thank you, that was very beautiful.
Khaled: Until next time, we are a chime away. I am honored by your “beingness” and light. Khaled salutes you with a bow. Goodbye.
He makes a wave with the planchette, invoking the feeling of taking his hat off with a flourish, before he slowly passes over the word ‘Goodbye.’
