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.

NOVEMBER NEWSLETTER 2014



THE PROGRESSION OF THE WORLDS

                     A spirit communication

“Progress is a law of nature. All beings of Creation, be they animated or not, have been submitted to this law through the bounty of God, Who wishes everything to be exalted and to prosper.”

“Even actual destruction, which appears to Man to be the end of everything, is only a means of reaching a more perfect state through transformation, seeing that everything dies only to be reborn again, suffering no consequences from the annihilation.”

“At the same time as living beings progress morally, so the worlds in which they live progress materially.”

“If we were to accompany a world during its different phases, from the first instant the atoms destined to its construction began to agglomerate, we would see it travelling along on a constantly progressive scale, although these steps would be imperceptible to each generation. It would offer its inhabitants a more agreeable home as these generations passed, according to the manner in which they themselves advanced along their pathway to progress.”

“Nothing in nature remains stationary. So we find that together with Man, the animals who are his helpers, the vegetables, and the habitations are all constantly marching along parallel to one another. How glorious this idea is and so worthy of the grandeur of the Creator!”

“According to this law, the world has been in a materially and morally inferior position to that which it finds itself today, and it will lift itself up in both these aspects so as to reach a more elevated degree in the future...”

(Excerpt from Kardec’s Gospel according to Spiritism, Ch. 3, Item 19, translated from the French by Janet Duncan)


HOPE BASED ON SPIRITUAL KNOWLEDGE

                        Written by Yvonne C. Limoges

Seeing so much suffering, injustice, prejudice, disease, violence and war all around the world is extremely disturbing.

However, knowing and truly believing in the knowledge of spiritual realities (which explains that we are all spirits at different levels of moral and intellectual development put here together to work and learn) provides me with a larger framework to base my entire perspective regarding material life and its problems.

And, since we all progress, sooner or later, throughout numerous lifetimes always towards goodness, this personally provides me with a certain inner spiritual calmness and with great hope for the future, with strong faith in the Creator and the Divine Laws.      
WHEEL OF LIFE

Spirit Communication received by Julie L. Harper

Life is circular within its progression, meaning that emotions osculate in a balance throughout our fluid and ever changing world.

The material world holds many challenges, but strength may be gained in knowing universal laws, our spirit guides, and sympathetic spirits which offer support toward betterment.

Change in thought can encourage change in circumstance, as so within - so without.


BEST IS YET TO COME
                  
                      Written Julie L. Harper

Follow your heart and everything will fall into place.

The amount of focus that you invest will influence the degree of return.

Prayer often results in improved circumstance even greater than one's intention due to seconding efforts of the good spirits.

'Let go and let God' so that you don't hinder the best to come.


SPIRIT SPEAKS

Spirit Communication received by Julie L. Harper

We are here among you, but many are too busy with mundane tasks to recognize our presence or to hear our whispers.

Work becomes far more arduous than need be while you struggle [in life] without asking for help from us the good spirits.

Efforts will be more beneficial to you and to others when you allow our assistance.

We listen...do you?


LIVING BY GOODNESS
              
                     Written Julie L. Harper

Living by goodness promotes a clear conscious and happier circumstance by the presence of God’s love.

Greatness may occur when in flow with the Creator's goodness, since God's way is always one of blessings.


ENJOYING LIFE ON EARTH

             Communication by a protecting spirit

“Do not think, however, that in constantly urging you to pray and meditate we wish you to lead the life of a mystic, or that you should maintain yourselves outside the laws of the society in which you must reside. No. You must dwell with the people of your time in the manner in which they live…”

“Virtue does not consist of having a severe and gloomy appearance, or in repelling the pleasures that the human condition permits…Do nothing without first thinking of God, so that this thought may come to purify and sanctify your acts…”

“Be happy within the picture of human needs, but in this happiness never allow a thought or an act which could offend God [go against the Divine Laws], or cause a shadow to fall upon the face of those who love you…God is love and He blesses all…”

(Excerpt from Kardec’s Gospel according to Spiritism, Ch. 17, Item 10, translated from the French by Janet Duncan)
HECTIC TIME OF YEAR

             Spirit communication by Alysia Pape

A reminder to all during the holidays; remain kind, caring, compassionate, and open minded.
As the holidays have begun, this is a reminder from your loving guides to be the best you can be.
If you become upset, angry, or frustrated, remember to take some deep breaths and clear your head. Let the good be heard in your thoughts, through your guides, and forget the not-so-nice thoughts and ask for forgiveness.
We all forget at times to be the best we can. Try and remember to act the same, if not better, during the holidays.
It is a difficult time and there are many distractions, which can pull you down and have you acting not as you would like.

DEPRESSION DURING HOLIDAYS

               Spirit communication by Alysia Pape

Depression during the holidays is very common.
People get sad about many things, such as not having what they see about them and/or perhaps the loss of something they once recently had. Not all of these things are or could be material things.
A lot of people wish they could get a lot of things during the holidays, which during the rest of the year they do not have the excuse to get (which they really cannot afford to do and most are material).
The simple scientific fact winter brings less light to our days makes many even more depressed.
However, there are certain things people might not be able to have: a partner, or a child, a family that can cooperate together, these are more than just material. Also, a sense of sharing happiness with a loved one during the holidays is something that many are not able to have; be it a partner, child, a family. If someone has recently lost [entered the spirit world] someone close to them, it remains difficult for them to be happy when they remember the memories of past holidays.
People feel very depressed for many reasons during this time of year. If you see one of these people do not try to overdo it in trying to cheer them up. Perhaps remind them of a few reasons they have to be happier than they are. Remind them of what they still have, remind them of perhaps other family members or friends who are alone that they could share the holidays with, and simply just give them a happy thought if you do not know them at all.
The more joy you spread, it will radiate out like sunshine bouncing off mirrors, from person to person. Happy holidays!

OUR PHYSICAL BODY

      Inspirationally received by Yvonne C. Limoges

We living on earth must make use of a material body and its condition affects us tremendously in many ways. Therefore, we should take good care of it as much as possible.

We promised to accomplish many things in our lifetime prior to reincarnating. How can we fully accomplish these if we abuse this God-given instrument permitted for our use?    

We can enjoy what material life offers us in moderation, but let us not fool ourselves or be in denial. What many do here in the present may not seem harmful now, but may lead to dependencies, physical and/or mental limitations, onset of diseases and the possibility of shortening of life.

If not thinking of ourselves, what of our loved ones who may suffer great heartache by our poor choices? If we need help, we should get it!

WE REAP WHAT WE SOW

                        Written by Narciso Trevilatto

We always reap what we sow…our destinies are always forged by ourselves…

Peace or violence has always depended on us…


PROGRESS AND THE FUTURE

 Written by Amalia Domingo Soler (1835-1909)

“We find God in charity and in living, and in trying to progress because in reality there is only one: God gave life to nature by way of His love, and men should love one another because attraction is a universal law…”

“We want universal brotherhood because without it civilization is a myth; but we have complete confidence in the future; and the more we reflect the more we convince ourselves that tomorrow will be splendid.”

“Yes, yes! The future of humanity is an eternal smile!”

“Man is never an orphan or disinherited. God is your Father! Progress, His glory! Life is immortal! With those undying goods no one can be called unhappy.”

“What is the stagnation of some people to the eternal life of the worlds?

What is the backwardness of a few before the many?”

“Infinite progress! Redemption through work!”

“You...! You are the future of humanity!”

(An excerpt from the freely distributed book entitled La Luz de la Verdad or Light of the Truth and published in Alicante, Spain - translated by Yvonne C. Limoges.) 
A NEED TO WAKE UP

                        Written by Narciso Trevilatto

The race for the conquest of the material has occupied the minds of humanity and has drawn it away from the principal values of life...

May blessings fall upon us, clearing our thoughts and feelings…So be it!


JESUS SAID: BLESS ARE THE AFFLICTED

Bless those suffering natural catastrophes, war, violence, abuse, injustice, prejudice, hunger, and thirst around the globe. Bless those who have illnesses, and live daily with physical, mental and/or emotional limitations, and also those in agony and pain for any reason.

Bless those who miss loved ones who have returned to the spirit world and let them be consoled.  And, bless those who have returned!

May we all have strong faith because the Creator is All Love and the Divine Laws are Perfect and Merciful; and these guarantee that through our work and progress we eventually reap the reward we deserve of true happiness.  

May our spirit guides assist, inspire, uphold and encourage us. Thank you God and bless us all!
