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.

TIMES OF TRANSITION

     Spirit communication received
                          by Yvonne Crespo Limoges      

Especially during times of major transitions within societies and nations, numerous and diverse ideas clash, and people (generally so busy with their everyday lives) cannot help notice something uncommon is occurring within their lives and societies.

Depending on the type of individuals they are, many feel the need to be more participative, alone or within groups, in expressing strong opinions and this is when we see an increase in activism - speeches, marches, protests and other types of social action.

They become more frequent and dynamic (many times violent) the more people feel their own personal interests (their necessities, freedoms, rights, etc.) are at stake or at risk.

The spirit world plays a large part in influencing those they can, whether for good and bad. Humankind has freewill and choses its path. Your history is full of many dark periods of times on the Earth, and many horrific things have taken place.



Always remember you are spirits (whether in the material world or in the spiritual world) and as such never die!

Spirits reincarnate to learn and it is the only way they can progress. Some take more advantage of their time than others, but each is created with an incessant yearning for happiness. 

The Creator is all Love, but wants His creations to find that true happiness by their own freewill and their own merit. It is a happiness that is not found upon the earth in material life. To find it can be a tremendous struggle, and it is easier if mankind chooses to act in accordance with the Divine Laws.

Practice goodness, charity and love. Pray for those who suffer to have strength in their adversities.

Each must try to keep strong their reasoned faith that goodness is always stronger than evil.

So far humankind, influenced by the morally superior spirits and many humans acting in unison for the common good, has found its way towards the light of better days each and every time, and God-Willing, it will continue to do so.

May God bless you all!



CONFIDENCE

     Written by Fermín Hernández Hernández

          We have confidence in those who respect us, appreciate us, love us, who want the best for us, who value us, and because their behavior is kind and pure; that is why we have opened a door and given them our trust because we are not fearful to naturally express and manifest our feelings, or fear they will play with them or deceive us, or use us as long as it suits them, turning away when they no longer care.

          Hypocrisy, lies and deception are totally different from trust. We must be careful when we observe even the smallest details of these towards us… avoiding them so they don’t reach to a terrible situation because what in the beginning was friendship, can become an abuse of confidence…

           For everyone who is in a group, association, etc., there is nothing worse than abusing the confidence of companions and peers, acting hypocritically, lacking friendship and respect…If they persist in wrongful behavior… their defects (which they do not control) lead them to commit awkwardness after awkwardness, incapable of justification [and their true self is revealed].

          Trust is one of the pillars on which the most intimate relationships between people are sustained. When this is lacking, when it is missing, when for any reason opposite behaviors follow, we see that there is no such confidence. The building which was erected, crumbles, and is gone; and, an anguished feeling of emptiness is left in the heart of the many feelings that had been shown towards our loved one.

          The affection and friendship of human values only comes through love that is reflected in the purity of intentions. Everything that deviates from this by way of selfishness, tarnishes these channels of love, and is something that is discovered sooner or later…

          When we place our trust in someone, what we are doing is trusting in their honesty, in their kind-heartedness, their nobility and authenticity.           
He who prides himself to be a person in whom trust is deposited should never lose sight of these factors, because if he loses them, he runs the risk of being discovered as he is…

          Confidence cannot be demanded by anyone, it must be spontaneous, natural and increase with the course of time as relations continue to be based on fairness and nobility of feelings. So, whoever creates a circle of trust based on fear, on fake stories, with hypocrisy and deception, and with other forms of subterfuge, transmitting an image that they do not have… there comes a time when they cannot continue to sustain it, then it is when one begins to know their true intentions…

It is this moment when, on the other hand, one is to be just with them, giving them an opportunity for their regeneration, but not allowing them to return to their defects for selfish ends, but teaching them to use their qualities for the good of all through kindness and pureness…

          Sincerity is the inseparable value of trust. When there is a lack of sincerity there is a lack of pureness, for this reason we must be cautious with all those who are not sincere, because in general they hide particular interests that they want to achieve by taking advantage many times of the good will of the others and this we should not allow. We must be the first person to be sincere and offer confidence, but making it clear that this is the way we want our fellowman to be with us.

EDUCATING OUR SPIRITS

          Written by Yvonne Crespo Limoges

At spirit sessions, numerous spirits have revealed they wish they were more aware, while in the material world, that they knew they were a spirit living a human existence and that a spirit world awaited them after physical death so as to better understand and be more prepared about their situation upon entering it.

Therefore, any time you feel there is the slightest opportunity to present these important ideas to another, you are doing a great charity. Of course, you must use very good judgement to discuss these with a person at the most appropriate time and place, and ideally when they would be the most receptive. It is much better, I have found, if the person knows you and has at least a certain amount of respect for you.

I have found that asking them what they believe first is helpful, and then build on that. If similar topics come up spontaneously on TV, in the news or in a movie, these can act as a catalyst for this type conversation and great for this discussion.

It does not matter if afterwards they say they do not believe anything you say. The information you provided will be brought up to them when they transition to the spirit world, and they will be made to remember it. Your words are never wasted! Be aware that imparting this information could very well be one of your many missions in this lifetime. The good spirits will inspire you!

Remember, the person you are speaking to has a spirit guide that wants them to progress in this knowledge. They will speak more about what you said when they sleep, and their spirit returns to them in the spirit world each night.

Little by little, this is how each person/spirit receives a spiritual education. We are all BOTH teachers and students, here to help each other!
FIND SOME TIME

                      Written by Alysia Pape

Everyone needs stress relief, it doesn't matter who the person is or what they do.

There's always a peaceful and constructive way to relieve stress.

Listening to music, drawing, exercises of all kinds, hobbies like building wooden figures to sewing.

There are very many ways to relieve stress, if you cannot think of one to do, ask some others what they do, perhaps give it a try.

If you have forgotten your hobby that you used to love to do or it doesn't seem like you may have room for it in your day, make sure you set aside time for yourself to de-stress and calm down.

No one is asking you to change jobs or ignore the responsibilities of your life, just take some time for you.

A PRAYER FOR OBTAINING A FAVOR

Beloved Lord of Infinite goodness, may Your name be blessed for the benefits conceded to me!
I would be unworthy if I were to attribute these happenings to mere chance or to my own merit.

Good Spirits, you who execute God's wishes, I thank you and most especially my spirit protector.  

Turn away from me all idea of being proud of what I have received and help me to make use of it exclusively for good.
                                                  AMEN

(Item 29 in Chapter 28 of Kardec’s book the Gospel according to Spiritism translated from the French by Janet Duncan)

GOD DOES NOT FORSAKE YOU

    Inspirationally Received by Julie L. Harper

Though suffering may sometimes seem undeserved and without reason or purpose, it is not.

Seemingly unwarranted suffering sometimes occurs within a person's life, even when conducted with minimal errors.

Human death does not eliminate God's mandate of responsibility and atonement for wrongdoings, whether erroneous behavior was done in this lifetime or a prior one.

Spiritual growth and personal improvement is everyone’s on-going mission – to reach God through progress and love.

And atonement for wrongdoing promotes spiritual growth after reflection and greater understanding.

Before birth, humans agree to trials of atonement and other tests that promote good progression. 
We honor our loving God's infinite wisdom in knowing what occurrences will be best for our personal (and collective) evolution.

After birth, humans don't consciously remember prior offenses or spiritual agreements in order that the current lifetime is not burdened by shameful memories of past existences.

Be strong, as you are never given more than you can handle. Handling difficulties without complaint is a testament to faith in God. When or if circumstances seem unbearable, know that suffering is a temporary condition.

Prayers are heard - your guides and the good spirits deliver sentiments of comfort, especially if you ask.

A time will come when the suffering of today simply exists as a milestone of growth.

Do not hold grudges for those who participated in actions connected to your atonement. They too will be held accountable for their own wrongdoings. Your forgiveness of them will break any ties that otherwise may bind you together. Personal peace can come by holding gratitude for anyone's act(s) that progress your spiritual evolution.

As you move forward, keep a loving heart and make a conscious effort to do better. Personal growth is most often a slow process, so have patience with yourself, and also with others.
Others have challenging trials too, so extend kindness and compassion to all. Your good efforts gain merit, and by God's will, may result in better or easier life circumstances.

Take comfort in knowing that you are always supported by the ever-present love within the creation and workings of God's universal and just laws.

Trust in the process of infinite wisdom. Because God's laws are lovingly designed for your best interests, you are never forsaken.

                              ********
The CREATOR - It can be said the Omnipotent Creator demonstrates Unconditional Love, Beneficence, and Solicitude towards us that can be seen and expressed, through and from, the morally superior spirit messengers who are sent to assist, protect, inspire, and communicate with us in order to further our spiritual and moral progression.Y.L.
