5.0 out of 5 stars ESOTERIC, 17 Nov 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: The Silent Road (Paperback)
Superbly esoteric, intruiging & inspirational! I can't recommend Tudor Pole highly enough, having read all his books. He is a well kept secret (most people having never heard of him!). His Wisdom is Revealed to all who can 'see'. Other esoteric metaphysical writers/teachings that may be of help/interest, and which have been an immense help in my Quest are: Edgar Cayce, Grace Cooke (White Eagle Publishing), Walter Heinz, and, if you can find it, 'Spirit Teachings' by William Stainton Moses. There are others, of course, including the excellent 'The Door Marked Summer' by no other than Michael Bentine (I kid you not!).
Tudor Pole was an 'Initiate' par excellence, but far from 'blowing his own trumpet', went to great lengths to remain OUT of the limelight in the execution of his extraordinary work. Did you know that he was a personal adviser to Winston Churchill during WW2? That he worked for British Intelligence? That he was alive (in the physical) at the time of Christ? He met Jesus? He also lived in Ancient Egypt? Fascinating stuff!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars An very unorthodox type of Orthodox Christian, 8 Feb 2011
By 
Guy reid-brown "GRB" (England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The Silent Road (Paperback)
As opposed to the much more familiar orthodox type of Unorthodox Christian (personified humorously in the Reverend Tom Sonnenschein in 'The Green Man' by Kingsley Amis, back in 1969.)

In the manner of these things, re-reading Muriel Lady Dowding's lovely book 'Beauty, not the Beast' brought W.T.P to mind as a mysterious character who keeps on cropping up (in fact there is a fascinating encounter with a Count St. Germain type of immortal recounted in the book itself - may even be the Count), and a 1960 hardback of 'The Silent Road' was the only W.T.P title the Kent Library database had in reserve.

So I am sure that it was the right time to be introduced to this extraordinary writer; from swimming deeply in fortean Seas, one realises that maybe one has to focus and concentrate on the Real, even as to be found in the Fantastic.

A particularly striking little footnote on page 58:

' The piercing of the veils must come about through spiritual and natural processes of mind and heart, and not through the employment of magic, ritual or trance.'

Yet there can be few lives so full of strange and wonderful fortean experiences as that recounted here.

All this, though, was put in the service of God and the Power of Light, whilst acknowledging that the Mystery still remains.

The first line of The Hon. Brinsley Le Poer Trench's Introduction perhaps puts it best: ` Some people are publicists; others are unseen behind the scenes and let their deeds speak for themselves. Tudor Pole is one of the latter group'.

Sobering.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great books about PSYCHIC EXPERIENCE, 5 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Silent Road (Hardcover)
For those unfamiliar with Wellesley Tudor Pole (WTP; 1884-1968) he was an English businessman who was psychic, a mystic, maybe an adept or master (as Rosamond Lehmann said in the book of letters "My Dear Alexias"), and this book presents briefly some of his thought and experiences. I highly recommend it, ... though I came to it after reading various of his other books. He had extraordinary experiences which (sketched e.g., in "The Two Worlds of WTP" by Gerry Fenge) bestrode the ordinary and spirit worlds. For example, though not described in this book, WTP said he often worked out-of-body in the borderlands (areas both sides of death) helping people/spirits with that transition.

This book's in 2 parts, containing many wonderful sections, but I found the 1st more enjoyable (covering e.g., accounts of supernatural experiences, healing miracles, his little Genie, memory) whereas the 2nd seemed more speculative, maybe far out (e.g., his speculations about Lucifer [who he suspects plays a positive role], his experiences of WW1 "Voices" of the dead, his difficult to follow discussion of seven facets of the mind, and his impressions when at the Pyramids in Egypt).

WTP had courage and humility. He was brave enough to speak openly about his "far out" experiences. In case you're tempted to dismiss his ideas out of hand, be aware he writes well ... at times beautifully, is well-informed, frank about the mysteries that surround us (time, memory, destiny, prevision, healing miracles), and he was highly regarded by his contemporaries e.g., Winston Churchill during WW2.

Finally, an important theme of WTP's thought (understated in this book) was that the intellect has distinct limitations so, importantly through using silence, each of us needs to improve our intuitive insight (to broaden awareness).

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Read., 22 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I rated it this way as in my opinion it merits it. This was a special being who had a lot to give to mankind through his Spiritual Work and he truly does so in this book. I would recommend it to anyone who is seeking truths from a Spiritual Perspective and is looking for Enlightenment and true knowledge. AJA.
