"the basic problem with channeling tends to be that the channel needs to be
actively attempting to live the message she is receiving. in spiritual work,
no one has the luxury of saying 'do as i say, not as i do.'" (loo, book v)

this statement spells out exactly the reason why i myself anyway would never
want to attempt even to learn about how to engage in channelling in an
elementary way. that is not to say that i intentionally engage in
hypocrisy, but that i have observed that i am extremely immature. because
of this immaturity, emotional and perceptual lapses of all kinds are
possible, to the point where behaviour almost completely uncharacteristic of
the loo can at times become evident. i'm sure many of us experience
that...my point though is that i have long felt that with doing something
like channelling, the person in question has to maintain a level of
positivity and spiritual maturity such that i not only am aware that i am
not currently capable of, but which i wonder if i will become capable of
within my own lifetime. hence, my own enormous reluctance to be involved in

i'm not saying the above with the intention either of putting myself down or
to draw excessive attention to myself/my own perspectives. rather my point
is to reinforce and explain the reasoning behind an opinion i've offered to
a few people on here who've expressed a desire to begin channelling
themselves...namely, that although carla has been able to do the wonderful
work that she has, for most of the rest of us, it's really not a good idea.
