Merryn’s Musings by Merryn Jose
Kathleen Marden – Leading UFO Researcher
Merryn writes, “A few years ago I had the great privilege to interview Kathleen Marden for a Merlian News Podcast. Kathleen, the niece of the famous UFO abductee Betty Hill, is a leading UFO researcher, author, and lecturer, was a wonderful guest, very passionate and informed about her topic, and I came away believing that their was great validity in her research and experience. After that interview I became increasingly interested in her work, and began following her career and her website www.kathleen-marden.com

For the Common Good
What is the common good? The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy say that the common good “refers to those facilities—whether material, cultural or institutional—that the members of a community provide to all members in order to fulfill a relational obligation they all have to care for certain interests that they have in common.” Put more simply, it is whatever is for the benefit or interests of all.
As we head towards spring, I look forward to moving past the darkness of the pandemic. Like you, I’ve had to adapt in many ways. I’ve found myself spending a lot more time on screens than ever before. Not coincidentally, a growing number of my patients have reported symptoms related to their increased use of screens, too.
Reports from the Other Side: Geraldine Cummins and F.W.H. Myers by Robert Moss
She came from the same Anglo-Irish milieu as William Butler Yeats, and wrote two plays that were performed at his beloved Abbey Theatre. Her mentor was the famous Irish medium Hester Dowden, said to have been the model for the psychic in Yeats’ spirited one-act play The Words Upon the Window-Pane. When she started practicing as a psychic medium, Yeats was one of the first people to consult her. Her name was Geraldine Cummins, and her life story as author, suffragette, medium and possible secret agent during World War II, is quite fascinating.

The result of regular practice is the rapid acceleration of spiritual development. Indeed, one minute of practice is said to equate to one year of natural unfoldment.”
