UNA ACLARACIÓN MUY OPORTUNA

Ponemos en el conocimiento de nuestros amables lectores que todo el material que ofrecemos como posts en este blog ha sido extraído de la obra LOS FUNDAMENTOS DEL ESPIRITISMO, previa autorización de su autor nuestro distinguido amigo Prof. Jon Aizpurua.

No nos atreveríamos a divulgar este precioso e invaluable material doctrinario y de divulgación de la cultura espírita si no tuviésemos de antemano la autorización expresa de su autor, de lo contario incurriríamos en el plagio, actitud que nos despierta repugancia tan sólo con mencionar el término.

Hemos escogido esta obra, LOS FUNDAMENTOS DEL
ESPIRITISMO, porque estamos seguros que ella constituye la exposición más actualizada de los postulados doctrinarios expresados por el Codificador Allan Kardec, enmarcados en nuevo contexto paradigamático; el vigente en estos tiempos que corren.

En LOS FUNDAMENTOS DEL ESPIRITISMO el autor reinvidica el verdadero carácter de la Doctrina Espírita, como un sistema de pensamiento laico, racionalista, e iconoclasta, alejado de todo misticismo religioso, tal como fue codificada la Doctrina por el Maestro Allan Kardec en el siglo diecinueve.

Esta obra es eminentemente didáctica, porque está escrita en un estilo ágil y ameno, sin que por ello pierda consistencia en su brillante exposición de ideas, llegando a toda clase de público lector, desde el estudioso del Espiritismo hasta aquellas personas que se encuentran en la búsqueda de una filosofía racional que les ayude a pensar al mundo y a sí mismos.

Nos adherimos a los postulados doctrinarios sustentados por la Confederación Espiritista Panamericana, que muestran a la Doctrina Espírita como un sistema de pensamiento filosófico laico, racionalista e iconoclasta. Alejado de todo misticismo religioso. Apoyamos la Carta de Puerto Rico, emanada del XIX Congreso de la CEPA en el pasado año 2008.

JUST CAUSES
        
                    Written by Yvonne Limoges

So many horrible and seemingly random catastrophes occur throughout the world of which people feel confusion and fear; from their viewpoint they find no reasonable causes.

Could it be that our culture continues to embrace (in a myriad of books, TV shows and movies) many characters with “super powers” to try and inwardly help comfort it, and possibly to “fight” in it mind’s eye what it can’t understand and what it can’t control?

Mankind can clearly see why it suffers when things occur due to its own obvious poor choices, but it is only the process of reincarnation and the law of progress that can truly make sense when events occur that appear senseless and random.

We also hear from those in the afterlife – the spirits themselves – as to what and why they endured certain events while they were here in the material world. And, they also say they chose to undergo what happened and there was also a just cause.

This information provides great comfort, inner calmness and strong faith for us in the material world to those that understand and believe this.   

A perfect Divine plan exists amidst the apparent chaos…
GOOD DEEDS
                                 Written by Alysia Pape

Going through life some people may want to be remembered in some way, in the grand scheme of the world. Perhaps as a famous scientist, inventor, musician, poet, artist?
Being a Spiritist, I know that these things do not necessarily count, unless you might be someone like: Jesus, Gandhi, Leonardo Da Vinci, Abraham Lincoln, or an Albert Einstein, all of which were given and/or accepted, difficult and taxing wonderful missions that they accomplished here on earth in different fields. And, how much all of these wonderful souls changed the earth for the better and advanced our morality, humanity, and knowledge!
However, most of us will not have trials or a mission and accomplish things like these greats. Still, there are an unimaginable number of things anyone can do to help the planet earth progress. God only asks that we do our best at everything we can do.
There are millions of people without water or food, clothes, homes, and basic health care (even a toothbrush). If you want to be remembered, I can bet the person you give even a small bag of clothes to for their newborn will remember you. The people that receive kindness and charity, no matter how small, will remember it. Also, no good deed goes unnoticed by God. Do as much good as you possibly can, it can also lighten your future burdens.
SOUL EVOLUTION

     Inspirationally received by Yvonne Limoges

God gave us freewill so we could learn and advance our way out of our ignorance, whether slower or faster, to higher and higher levels of knowledge and moral and spiritual enlightenment, through our own efforts.

Each of us has our own individualized path in life (whether on earth or in the spirit world) and live in the conditions based on our conduct in past lives, and including what we need to learn, cleanse and overcome, in keeping with what we are able to cope with.

God is All Love and Mercy, and therefore, we are always looked after by advanced spirits that inspire and encourage us towards our goals and are always there to help support us at our points of weakness.

Yet, we know the purpose of life. Therefore, we must strive to always choose to be good and moral, gain knowledge while trying to be as strong as we can under our adversities.

As we increase in all manner of understanding, we acquire great satisfaction and great inner strength regarding our efforts, and obtain a much better appreciation for the merits and progress we achieve as well as a great admiration for the extraordinary process of soul evolution within the Divine Plan. 


COMMITTMENT

We need commitment to our spiritual evolution...

Each day offers us new avenues and opportunities for balancing or harmonizing ourselves...

May God bless us!
THE SIMPLICITY OF LIFE

         Spirit Communication by Julie L. Harper

Do not complicate that which is simple. Life is created by, and for, the existence of love for good progression.

You have been given superior teachers, such as Jesus, for spiritual guidance.

You have been given an internal conscience that alerts you of right and wrong.

You have teachings by universal laws of truths demonstrated from consequence of action.

And you have steadfast spirit guide love, support, and assistance when allowed.

Give thanks; for life is not complicated outside of earthly error.

Live by God's mandates for a fulfilled life of graciousness.


RIGHTING ERROR
    
       Inspirationally received by Julie L. Harper

All human errors are rectified. The balance of justice occurs at some point - whether in this lifetime or a subsequent one - to satisfy the law of progression. That which may seem unfair or nonsensical, purposefully exists within God's Divine plan. That perceived as unfair may exist to allow the making of amends as redemption for a past-life mistake. Or, one may have chosen to incarnate with particular sufferings or affliction to further spiritual growth. Upon incarnation, past existences and spiritual agreements are forgotten, which may lead to views of victimization and feelings of pity. May our faith be strengthened from knowing all is as it should be for beneficial personal and collective progression.
A DREAM COME TRUE

                 Written by Yvonne Limoges

At one of our Spiritist meetings, one of our mediums told me I would have an “interesting experience” with a named specific member. This was a very nice person I had socialized with only on infrequent occasions outside of our Spiritist meetings.

A little later on after being told this, I had a very vivid dream with this member where she invited me to see a park and go to lunch.

In the dream, we walked the trails of a park and at the end of one of them there was a wooden tower that one could walk up the stairs and look out over a beautiful lake. As I walked up to the top level, I looked all around until I got to the side where the water met the land, and on the bank there sunning itself was a good sized alligator.

After enjoying the park, she took me to a restaurant. There, I saw that the restaurant had two sections divided by a lattice divider that was covered with tiny colored lights. I remember having a very nice time and then, I woke up.  

Time went by and I forgot all about what the medium had told me and my dream.

Several months then passes, when the very person in my dream asked me if I wanted to visit a park that I had always wanted to visit but had never been to, so I went. As I was walking the trails I started to remember my dream, and I asked her if there was a tower to look out over the water at the end of the trail, and she said “Yes.” I could not wait to get there.

I got to the tower and looked out on the lake. It was just as beautiful as in my dream. Then all of a sudden I remembered about the alligator! Could it be possible that there would be one? I looked around to the side again where the water met the land, and lo and behold there was the alligator positioned exactly as in my dream!

Next, she took me to a restaurant I also had never been to, and as I entered, immediately I realized it looked exactly as the one in my dream with the lattice divider and the small twinkly lights.

So, let’s examine what happened.

A medium tells me a spirit says I will have “an interesting experience” with a specific person who I did not normally socialize with. I forget all about this. Then months later, she spontaneously asks me out to see a park and go to lunch to two places I have never been to in my lifetime.

I go and find that it is exactly as in my dream in every detail. And, the most amazing part was that exact looking alligator sunning itself in the very spot as in my dream! What are the odds of that?

I have dreamt of small events that have come true, as if seeing a movie being replayed afterwards in the material world, but this was a very extraordinary “interesting experience”!  

            In review, I received notice ahead of time by a spirit via mediumship I would experience something with a specific person. I then have a dream and it is very exact and specific in nature of a future event unknown to me in the material world.

The spirits can provide us with wonderful proof of all kinds…their existence and of their influence.

If you pray to request your own “proof,” and if permitted by God and the good spirits, you may have your own remarkable experience.


A VOID

       Inspirationally received by Alysia Pape

There is a void inside some souls. Sometimes people try to fill this void with what they think will fill it with things like: money, buying things, treating people badly, with sex, using drugs and/or alcohol, just to name a few, and there are many more variations. You know the people that do this. You can see it in them. There are those too that run from habit to habit, not knowing what to try and fill themselves with.
Yet, it is not known why they do these things. It could be something from their past or present that someone may think they know of. No one really knows why except God; sometimes these poor souls do not even know why they cannot fill their own void.
When we as Spiritists are born, we know what we will encounter in our life here on earth. We know that we have certain missions and assignments, as well as trials and tests to clear and clean up our past lives. We know Life’s purpose. 
But, when you see one of these lost souls; pray for them. Pray that they find their way, to fulfill what they agreed to do here this time around. Prayer helps more than you know.
If the opportunity comes to talk to these lost souls, they should be guided to try and pray for help from God, in order to help them fill their void.

(COMMENT: The lack of a sense of purpose in life – is a void felt by many – but can be filled with spiritual knowledge that provides: who we are, where we come from and why we are here on earth. Meanwhile, prayer is especially useful because it provides spiritual sustenance. Our physical bodies need material food to survive and our soul needs spiritual nourishment in order to maintain total health and equilibrium and so we can be productive individuals in fulfilling the purpose and tasks of our lives. - Y.L.)  
HELP ME

 Spirit communication received by Yvonne Limoges

Help me Lord, I’m so down.

I feel as if my mind cannot think,
And my heart is so heavy with burdens.

May an angel of mercy,
Please come to my aid and lighten my troubles.

May their smile, warm my heart and
May an out-reached hand lift
Me up from the doldrums of despair
I find myself in.

May a Divine light shine into my life and
Let it take away the darkness.

Give me hope and spiritual sustenance.

My God, I believe in you,
And I know…I am never alone!
