I am grateful to R. In his conversations with Pan, elves, and other nature spirits Roc realizes that the elemental realm is vastly more powerful than our human kingdom and possesses an ability to create far beyond our human means. It is possible to see and to communicate with these light bodies. I could see him through the grass. His verbal account of his encounters with nature spirits, accompanied by photographic slides of nature was part of the educational programme at Findhorn for many years.
That such a thing exists at all will be questioned by many people. Unless humanity comes to realise the dangerous stupidity of outraging nature and stops the ever increasing rate of pollution it will ultimately destroy itself. It's a real life fairy tale. He usually does not communicate with me in words, and I can't see him and touch him as Crombie does. Pan found in Crombie a man who was open to a connection with the elemental kingdom — someone who loved and respected Nature, and the elementals, who could serve as a messenger between the two worlds.
It is enchanting, mind expanding and filled with so much heart. Because I had been able to respond to him without fear, Pan could communicate with me and use me as a mediator between humanity and nature. Living solitarily in a basic rural cabin during the war years, Roc developed an intimate bond to nature that served as initiation for his later encounters with the elemental world. True co-creation with nature, working with rather than against the elemental kingdom, can bring about vital positive change to our endangered eco-system. He could appear personified in many different places at the same time and should never be thought of as restricted to a corner of the garden or sitting on a hilltop beside a gorse bush.
His account of some of these experiences are published in 'The Findhorn Garden' a book about the early history of the Findhorn Foundation in the north east of Scotland. It frequently changes colour and is often covered with a multitude of fine curved lines, which appear to flow like liquid in a pipe, forming continually changing patterns of incredible beauty. Mr Crombie had a very straightforward way of writing. Gradually I learned to appreciate the tremendous love energy that Pan gives me, and to recognize the subtle way in which he and the nature elementals are using my energy to aid the work of restoring the beauty of Nature. Then there is pure, unconditional love that sees beyond physical imperfections to the spirit within. This book also includes a prologue by musician, composer, and writer Mike Scott of The Waterboys. Ogilvie Crombie for having the courage to write about his experiences and bring the message of Pan and the Elemental Kingdom to humankind.
Ogilvie Crombie studied science until his ill health forced him to move to a cottage, where he developed his close contact with nature. He reveals how the elemental realm is profoundly powerful and possesses an ability to create far beyond our human means. This book seems to be a transcript of the sound recording. Ogilvie Crombie Roc made a wish as he dropped a penny into a wishing well--he asked to be able to see fairies and talk to them. Through his experiences Roc becomes closely involved with the Findhorn Community in northeast Scotland where he meets further elementals who give him sound advice as to how the famous Findhorn gardens should be cared for in order to work in harmony with nature. I totally loved this book. Review: Enthralling, informative, delightful and just a little scary at times, this lovely little book will thrill and delight anyone with an interest in elemental and nature beings, or who simply wants to encounter an amazing, gifted, wizardly 'walker between the worlds'.
When reading this book consider it a channeled text, like the teachings of Seth or of Abraham. People may feel uneasy in his presence because of the awe he inspires, but there ought to be no fear. Through his example, Roc places emphasis on connecting and working in harmony with nature spirits. As Crombie explains in his lecture, people and nature spirits will work together in the coming new age. Ogilvie Crombie shares his encounters with the great God Pan, elemental beings, elves, and other nature spirits.
It is of vital importance for the survival of mankind. A thespian at heart, he also displayed great interest in the fine arts, music, and theatre. . He emphasizes that while this is a personal experience, it is also a calling and that contact of this kind gives one an obligation to engage in positive work for oneself and others. All are beautiful, pure and luminous, glowing with inner radiance.
Through his example, Roc places emphasis on connecting and working in harmony with nature spirits. He is a great being, the god of the whole elemental kingdom as well as of the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms. As I watched, he raised his hands and rolled back the hood. This is far from the case. It includes everyone, human and elemental, no matter what each one looks like. At the moment it cannot be scientifically proven, though no doubt this will be possible in the future.
Well, who am I to contradict him? Excerpt Meeting Pan on Iona Roc The next significant meeting was in early May on Iona, a tiny island of the Inner Hebrides which is considered to be an ancient centre of spiritual power. He rose up out of the ground and stood facing us, an immense figure at least twenty-five feet tall. Ogilvie Crombie Roc 1899-1975 was a self-taught mythologist, psychologist, historian, and esotericist. Pan is a universal energy, a cosmic energy, which is constantly found throughout the whole of nature. I really felt the love this very special man had for our natural world, and the importance he felt for respecting and honouring the Earth that supports us. Pan is playful, elusive, and not always cooperative. I find I like to pick it up and read it at times when I want to feel uplifted and inspired.
