Dr. Richard Lawrence, the executive secretary of The Aetherius Society in Europe, visited Studio City last week to play rare tapes of the society’s founder Dr. George King who said he channeled a voice from Mars.
A video showed King going into a trance and then speaking in a measured voice to talk about spirituality and peace. These are a part of more than 600 collected Cosmic Transmissions that King made before he died in Santa Barbara in 1997. (See the attached video above in the photo gallery.)
Lawrence said he goes beyond teaching about UFOs and tries to explain the profound mystical implications of alien encounters. He wrote UFOs and the Extraterrestrial Message and holds lectures around the world.
“These benign beings might offer humanity a rare opportunity for spiritual evolution,” said Lawrence, who described his personal encounter seeing five objects in a circle in the skies of Great Britain.
He spoke to a crowd of about 80 at the which meets at the in Studio City.
“MUFON is known throughout the world as a research source, but I look at it from spiritualization standpoint,” Lawrence said. He pointed out that the description of an air-borne piece of crockery, a “flying saucer,” was described in ancient Japanese and early Hindu writings. He also said he believed that descriptions in the Bible are actually encounters with alien beings.
“We know that you can’t follow a star, so it’s possible that the object in the sky that these three wise gentlemen were following may have been an alien craft hovering over a stable and guiding them to the birth of a cosmic being,” Lawrence said.
Lawrence said he has given speeches throughout the world for more than 30 years.
“Back in the 1980s when I lectured and told people that government was keeping back information, people thought I was a nutter, but now if I were to say that the government is telling you the whole truth, people would think I’m a nutter,” he said. “That is how people have evolved in their thinking.”
Larence gives a workshop that includes 30 mystical and yoga practices and also authored a book, Your Journey Towards Enlightenment.
Lawrence is giving a lecture on Sunday in Hollywood from 2 to 5 p.m. at The Aetherius Society’s American Headquarters at 6202 Afton Place for $25. For more information go to http://www.aetherius.org.
The next lecture at MUFON in Studio City is by Dr. Bruce Goldberg, whose lecture Time Travelers: UFO Abductor from Our Future, is scheduled for Oct. 18.
