Is Mediumship Desirable?

While it is true that a vast majority of persons possess the mediumistic

power, latent and dormant, and capable of being developed to a greater

or less active power, it is but honest to say that in many cases it is a

grave question whether the person would be justified in undertaking the

hard work, and long time, required to develop himself for the minor

success which would attend his efforts. As a writer has said: "Does the

prospective result justify the labor involved to bring these powers into

efflorescence? My impression is, that in at least three cases out of

four, the time and labor it would take to develop this latent quality to

its greatest efficacy would be far in excess of its value when so

developed." But, as we have already said, the best indication is found

in the "call" to develop his or her latent powers which the true medium

always experiences.
