I came across this PDF, containing an extract from the March 1955 BSD Journal (without permission, I might add), featuring a talk give by Col. Bell to the 1954 BSD Congress about the origins of the Society. Interesting reading, it begins on page 23 of the PDF (336 in the page numbering):

Fascinating stuff.
I like the fact that dowsing is recognised as being more than water divining- and the nominative determinism of the deviceless dowser mentioned early on (Welman) is excellent!

As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
