Haleem Damous (1888-1957)

The Testimony of Haleem Damous Concerning Doctor Dahesh

Haleem Damous was a famous Lebanese poet. He first heard about Dr. Dahesh in 1942, from his friend Yusuf El-Hajj ("The First Daheshist"). So, he decided to accompany that friend to the House of Dahesh in Beirut. When they arrived, they had a long conversation with Dr. Dahesh, and the subject came up regarding if Adam was the first man on Earth, and if he truly existed. A few individuals expressed a view that Adam did not truly exist, but is a myth or parable. At that point Dr. Dahesh walked over to the window, and stared at the Moon. This is from the writings of Haleem Damous, what he saw and heard that night. This is from The Daheshist Chronicles by Haleem Damous, a series of 13 volumes, written in Arabic, about 200 pages each.

August 1, 1942 The First Miracle : The Appearance of the Extra-Terrestrial A Discussion

We were three at my home in Ras-Beirut : Doctor Dahesh, Brother Yussef El Hajj, and I

. It was ten o'clock at night when Doctor Dahesh rose and approached the window ... and here, he gazed at the moon. That's when we heard a subtle murmur reaching our ears. And, lo and behold, a light mist materialized before us and began to shrink, to compress, and to diminish until it revealed a man whose face was red and whose form was amazing and whose face sparkled as if it was the surface of a mirror. His size was similar to ours. He approached us and began to speak to us at a mind-boggling speed, but in a tongue completely foreign to what we were familiar with. And in our turn, we asked him to express himself in Arabic we asked if he could do so, because we were unable to understand a single word of what he was saying.

That's when Doctor Dahesh approached him, put his hand on his mouth ... he immediately began to express himself in Arabic and in a very clear fashion.

And he said:

"I am the inhabitant of one of these Worlds that are inaccessible to your human eyes. Once, I was an inhabitant of your planet and that was thousands of years ago. And what you refer to as 'Death' befell me but in reality, death is none other than a passage from one World to another, from one condition into another. For as soon as I permanently closed my eyes in your planet, leaving behind my body as food for earthworms, I found myself in a world of sublime beauty.

If you ask the question, 'How come we, the living and the inhabitants of this planet are not capable of seeing you you, who have abandoned your material body and now wear a transparent Spiritual body?'

My answer would be that the explanation would require many volumes and that I would have to remain with you for many long hours which is not possible because, and already, the hour to leave you is almost upon us. Nevertheless, I will explain a fact and supply you with proof. And here is, then, the explanation:

Each human being possesses two bodies: One material and the other Spiritual.

As for your Material World, it possesses vibrating waves, similarly to the Spiritual World which also possesses vibrating waves that are unique to it. But the difference from the point of view of the speed of vibration between the vibrating waves of the Material World and that of the Spiritual World is huge.

The speed of the vibrating waves in your Material World is far lesser than the speed of the vibrating waves in the Spiritual Worlds.

When (what is commonly referred to as) death occurs in your world, the spiritual body which represents the second portion of your personal entity separates from the material body and rises until it reaches the World whose vibrating waves are identical to its own.

That is why it is impossible for you to perceive this spiritual body because the organ of sight is under the influence of your material world whose vibrating waves are too slow by comparison to the Spiritual World and to the speed of the vibrating waves in this spiritual body, thus the impossibility to see anything whatsoever. As for the proof, and in order to simplify the problem, and so that you are in a position to better understand it, I will give you this following example: Imagine you are standing upright, on any street ... and that a car passes right before you, rolling at great speed. It will pass you without your being able to identify the passengers that were inside the car ... and that is due to its staggering speed.

But, if it is given to you to climb inside another car, and follow it until you are able to catch up with it at which point you would be riding side by side, regardless of speed you would be able to perceive those who are inside the other car ... just as they would be able to see you since both your speeds are now identical. Likewise, the same can be said about our ethereal world.

You will not be in a position to perceive it with your eyes that remain subject to the laws of matter and with these vibrations that are far slower than the waves of our Spiritual World."

We asked him a few questions and received for each question an adequate answer.
He took leave of us and began to dissipate little by little before us until he disappeared completely.

His vanishing was as extraordinary as his appearance had been incredible.

(from The Daheshist Chronicles volume one. (excerpt translated from Arabic to English by M.H. Chakkour)

The man known today as "Adam" was not the first human male on this planet, but the first man with a God-Breathed Soul. He was known as Adapa, the first priest of the City of Eridu, in ancient Sumeria. He appeared about 6,000 years ago. Certainly human beings existed on this planet long before Adapa, but He came from another world. He was not born on this world. He married a Sumerian woman, and they had children; who became the Adamites. Haleem Damous is known as "The Second Daheshist" and the author of "The Daheshist Chronicles" which are 13 volumes in Arabic; about 200 pages each. Eventually those volumes will be translated and published.

Materializing the dead loved ones of people, in front of their eyes, and also people from other worlds, was not uncommon for Doctor Dahesh. Dozens of people are still alive today who have witnessed these things happen. This was the "legal reason" why Dr. Dahesh was exiled from Lebanon in 1944, for "Spiritism"; which usually means trying to contact the dead, or the dead speaking through a Medium. However, for Dr. Dahesh, He simply "materialized" the dead in His large living room at the House of Dahesh in Beirut: for all eyes to see and all ears to hear.
