Interesting points in the video:

Time: 13:13 – Geraldo talks about Emmanuel Swedenborg, who lived and wrote about the spirit life 150 years before Allan Kardec. He was preparing the way for the lessons of Allan Kardec. Emmanuel Swedenborg wrote about the Spiritual cities. There are cities in heaven, although more perfect than on earth.

Time: 25:14 – Chico’s mother wrote a book (via psychography), Cartas de Uma Morta, (Letters from a Dead Woman). She says the spirit life is an extension of the human life. Geraldo quotes her explaining the universe, “There is no emptiness in the universe, all planetary zones are full of life”. The book was written in 1932.

Time: 35:10 – There are thousands of colonies, similar to Nosso Lar, each colony reflects the culture of the society that provides its spirit population.

Time: 52:14 – Chico’s sister was Catholic. She also sent messages to Chico. After her death, she was taken to a Catholic community, she was happy to see other church goers and priests. Her mother told her she would have a time of resting. Then her daughter asked her, “What about you mother, what happens to the Spiritists after death?”. Her mother said, that after a Spiritist dies, they are just assigned something to do. So there you have it, the reward for being a Spiritist, it’s immediate work in the afterlife.

Time: 1:16:30 – We can prepare now for the next life. We can visualize what we want to do and be in the next life. There is no reason for a mature adult to give up on their dreams. Study something new, do something useful, that will make a difference.

Time: 1:24:00 – Chico’s mother wrote in 1931 that they had “remote vision” (TV) in the Spirit World, she passed away in 1915. Geraldo asked Chico how does the science compare between here and on Nosso Lar; Chico said they are about 100 years ahead of us.

Time: 1:30:10 – Discussion of work and payment in the Spiritual World. The work week is 48 hours per week. Information about how long it takes to own a home.

Time: 1:47:18 – There was one chapter written about what happens to people who die in a plane KindleCovercrash. The higher planes of the Spirit World told Chico and Andre Luiz (the Spirit author) to take that chapter out, that we here on earth are not prepared to learn this.

Prophecies & Mediumship, a lecture by Geraldo

geraldo-with-chicoThere is another lecture, in English, at the Spiritist Society of Baltimore, about Prophecies and Mediumship by Geraldo Lemos Neto.

The lecture on YouTube is placed here.

It covers the prophecies concerning the future of the world and the United States. And goes into the transition time of the earth from a planet of atonement to a planet of regeneration.

 

Why Earth Dates are Hard to Pin Down for Spirits

While the episodes we must travel through are predetermined, the exact timing is not. Variables can change causing the needed factors to not be aligned. Hence, an event should have occurred may have to be put off, or even cancelled. It all depends.

Therefore, when people expect specific dates from spirits, they are unable to answer with confidence. Instead, they try to anchor an event with another event. This plus the addition that time is different, or actually non-existent in the spirit realm, makes the job of pinning down a time on earth extremely problematic.

As an example of the complexity of referencing time on earth to the spirit world, there is an interesting segment from a book, A Wanderer in the Spirit Lands, by the spirit Franchezzo. The medium who transcribed the book was A. Farnese. The book was published in 1896. My Spiritist friend in Brazil, Geraldo Goulart, sent me the PDF.

The spirit Franchezzo asked his spirit mentor how long a task would take him to finish. He wanted to know the length of time in relation to earth time. This is what he was told:

“No, it will last but a short time—two or three weeks of earth time—for behold as I shadow it forth to you I see following it fast the image of your returning spirit, showing that the two events are not separated by a wide interval. In the spirit world where time is not reckoned by days or weeks or counted by hours, we judge of how long an event will take to accomplish or when an occurrence will happen by seeing how near or how far away they appear, and also by observing whether the shadow cast by the coming event touches the earth or is yet distant from it—we then try to judge as nearly as possible of what will be its corresponding time as measured by earthly standards. Even the wisest of us may not always be able to do this with perfect correctness; thus it is as well for those who communicate with friends on earth not to give an exact date for foreseen events, since many things may intervene to delay it and thus make the date incorrect. An event may be shown very near, yet instead of continuing to travel to the mortal at the same speed it may be delayed or held in suspense, and sometimes even turned aside altogether by a stronger power than the one which has set it in motion.”[i]

I haven’t seen a better explanation of the difficulty of dating events to earth time than the one above. Imagine living in a world where time doesn’t move forward, only change of status. In other words, things do happen, people learn, people meet new friends, and people go on missions to earth; but the clock doesn’t move forward. It doesn’t move because time doesn’t advance, plants don’t decay, houses don’t fall down over time, and bridges don’t rust. Objects are altered when a spirit wills them to change. Not because years have passed.

Then, you toss in that a spirit must determine the current approximate time on earth, at the moment someone is asking for a future date, the event must be correlated with a future event that may or may not occur, which then must be translated into another time and date on earth. One then begins to understand the complexity of supplying an answer, that we on earth think should be relatively easy.

I dive deeper in how the Future is presented to us in my set of three books, where I document the spirit writing sent to the Rev. G. Vale Owen. The first book in the series is Heaven and Below – Book 1 of Spiritism as told to an Anglican Vicar.

Three Books on Messages from the Spirit World

Geraldo Goulart has found some older books by spirit authors that are in PDF.  They may be of interest to you.

They are:

life-of-jesus-dictated-by-the-lord-himself_first-part_full-text4

J S M Ward – Gone_West – three narratives

Franchezzo – A Farnese – A Wanderer in the Spirit Lands

None of them are official Spiritist writings, but I see many similarities and interesting observations. I have no knowledge if these are true or not.

 

The Departure Time

It was a touching scene: the daughters around their mother’s bed in the hospital, heavy and somber faces, red and watery eyes. Every person present trying to pick words of encouragement up, but in their heart, all of them experienced a sense of loss already ingrained in their spirits.

We can seriously say that we are not prepared for this moment, fatal and inevitable, which is the time for the return of our loved ones to the spiritual homeland. We are not. This is because even those who have been educated in some religion since childhood have not been taught in this respect. We study almost everything in programs of evangelization – in any denomination – but we do not talk about the “death” phenomenon. However “death” is life! And we have quoted this elsewhere.

Notice that we are prepared – always! – for various occasions: birthdays, holidays, weddings, holidays, Christmas, New Year, New Year’s Eve, Carnival …, and whatever else it may appear. But not only are we not prepared for a funeral ceremony, as we also do not know to say anything other than the well-known phrases as: “my condolences“, “my feelings“, “rest in peace“, “I am so sorry“. Fallacies!

Even worse when people of a strong and passionate temperament arise who do not accept what has happened – the separation -, and they begin to shout improprieties against the Godhead like: “- Why did God do this to me?“.

They do not understand – would it be possible try to make them understand? – that, in addition to suffering the loss, are also interfering, very often, in releasing of the creature that no longer animates its physical body, but that also cannot move itself away to another dimension due to the desperate calls they make to him at that moment.

It is well known that life on Earth is momentary. No matter how many years you will live, it will always be a great time spent here. Here we come, the spirits in need of learning, to pave the evolutionary journey alternating between Love and Pain to become better. This is fate. It is not by chance that Kardec’s grave, the tireless codifier of the Spiritist Doctrine, we read: “To be born, to grow, to die, to be reborn still and to progress always, such is the law.”

In some cases of illness, there are occurrences where there is the sudden improvement of the patient for the specific purpose of preparing the afflicted hearts of the relatives for the fatal outcome. This is when what is commonly called “the visit of health” occurs. Note also that in various distressful situations, the expected does not always occur.

Cases in which family and friends wait for the final moment, contrary to all expectations, it does not come. The patient recovers and life goes on. And there are situations where friends and family themselves pray for the outcome, believing that the sick person is already suffering too much and it is better that they “rest” by the way of death. Which is an illusion.

In the vast Spiritist literature, there are reports where the reader can verify the way of acting of Providence. Here a patient recovers and receives an additional time for family members to calm down, thereby avoiding the enormous burden of suffering that would be undue to the feelings of that group. There occurs the postponement because some objectives are yet to be achieved in that family collectivity. Not knowing the day and the hour when the thief will come, no one can say when it will be the final hour of whoever it is.

For a better understanding and absorption of knowledge on the subject, we suggest reading the books “The Book of Spirits” and “Heaven and the Hell” both by Allan Kardec and read the series of Andre Luiz books by Francisco C. Xavier, beginning with Nosso Lar.

Get them and good reading!

In Search of Happiness

The one must read book in the series of book about Spiritism

The Spirits Book

By: Geraldo Goulart

“In general terms, it is possible to affirm that happiness is a Utopia, whose conquest has been striven after by successive generations without their ever having been able to reach their objective. If the sensible man or woman is a rarity in the world, then the absolutely happy person has never been found.”

The Gospel According to Spiritism – chapter V.

 

The film “In pursuit of happiness”, starring Will Smith, discusses the true story of a humble man, full of personal problems, who, like most of us, seeks to overcome all obstacles to achieve his goal. He learned that the way to happiness was to win in life through work and perseverance instead of luck (it does not exist!).

We believe that all know many people who are also in search of happiness. It is even possible that at this point, we ourselves are … But what is happiness?

So much has been written and speculated on happiness; it has been trivialized to the point of being compared to the “luck”. In fact, if we ask several people what is happiness for them, we hear an answer that it would be “win” something or a lot of money. In this context, the verb “to gain” relates to the luck factor.

Understanding that this subject is relevant to most people and also that clarification can heal the feeling of anguish, dissatisfaction and the feeling of unhappiness of people, several spiritual friends inspired Kardec to treat this subject in THE BOOK OF SPIRITS.

In The Book of Spirits, item 920, Kardec asks the entity if it was possible for man to enjoy perfect happiness upon the earth. The Spirit’s answer, as usual, is crystal clear and flawless: “No; for corporeal life has been appointed to him either as a trial or an expiation; but it depends upon himself to lighten the evils of his lot, and to render it as happy as life can be upon the earth.”

As can be understood, life on the planet should not be assumed as a winning ticket that offers us only

pleasures, satisfactions and rest. Notwithstanding, life provide us the opportunity to ease the difficulties and pave the way. The effort expended to achieve the condition to savor the happiness, even though relative, will only be successfully crowned if we are diligent, persevering, even obstinate.

The character portrayed by Will Smith, we repeat, is real and still can be counted in the number of those on Earth. A black US citizen abandoned by his wife who could not bear the financial condition in which they lived, which he was criticized for having spent all the money he had saved for the purchase of machinery which could not resell. She goes out and leaves him; he has the responsibility to finish rearing his son, still a child. But he is undeterred and says to himself that he will overcome.

Returning to Kardec, on item 921 the he asks: “We can conceive that man will be happy upon the earth when the human race shall have been transformed; but, meanwhile, is it possible for each man to ensure for himself a moderate amount of happiness?.”  Then the entity replies: “The more often that man is the architect of his own misfortune. Practicing the law of God he is saved from the evils and reaches such a great happiness behaves as a rough existence.”

Note that the entity doesn’t even considers the question about the possibility to achieve a relative happiness. Going in the opposite direction, remembers that it is man who erects his own unhappiness. But one might ask, is that really so?

If you, the reader, is one of those people who wonder about why are not happy, analyze yourself, your acts and behavior, and try to identify the cause of what you believe is the engine of your suffering, your anguish, your unhappiness. After an honest assessment, try to answer, if you caused or not, your troubles which have come to this point.

Ah, yes, the film has a happy ending. It’s worth watching it to see the his perseverance end in victory.

SPIRITIST DOCTRINE IS LIFE. STUDY KARDEC’S BOOKS!


I hope you enjoyed the article by our friend in Brazil, Geraldo Goulart. He has written for Spiritist The Problem is the SolutionPublications in Brazil and now he is translating some of his article for us!

To learn more about your trials on earth and why they may seem difficult, but are actually presented to us for our own good, read my book, The Problem is the Solution.

Protective Injury

Geraldo Goulart

The knowledge that some children are born with congenital ailments and / or physical injuries that will restrict the new life that begins for those newcomers to the planet usually bothers and distresses people.

The obstacles that those creatures and their parents will have to face later are immediately visualized. In fact, some limitations end up affecting the whole family. Caring for children with Down’s syndrome, paralysis, deafness, dumbness or blindness, among others, requires not only sublimation from their caregivers who need to be vigilant about the child, but also – and especially – with a huge dose of Love and Patience.

What we want to stress here is that nobody, absolutely nobody, analyzes the fact from the spiritual point of view. Why don’t we? Once we know that with bad choices made with our free will everyone can contract debts that are not always redeemed in the present life, it is understood that there are

The disincarnations in which the Spirit carries with it needs of future redemptions that will certainly be projected into future returns to next life.

Knowing also that the return to material life is always programmed, inclusive with the presence of reincarnating spirit (see MISSIONARIES OF THE LIGHT – Spirit André Luiz, FEB), it is impossible to

Chico Xavier

attribute to the Creator or to fate, the existence of (re) births with limiting problems. This even brings new insight and reflection on the biblical quotation from Exodus 21:24 “eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot“.

Yes, no one returns to material life bearing stigmata that represent vengeance from whoever it is. All congenital evils brought to Earth are no more than intrinsic needs to those who bring them, and who, for reasons beyond our understanding, will also be necessary purges for parents and others involved with those who bring such deficiencies. To clarify the subject, it is also suggested to read The Spirits Book (Allan Kardec, FEB), questions 171 (Justice of Reincarnation) and 258 to 273 (Choice of Trials).

Someone will ask “— But what to think when the child is born normal, without any anomaly and then, due to some misfortune, suffers an accident that consequently also limits his life? A quadriplegic, for example? “. The likely answer is that the limitation now presented will be of benefit to that Spirit who someway, by any chance, became the passive agent of the occurrence. Also beneficial are all inhibitory diseases. The recognition of the benefits of this purgatory aspect to the Spirit does not mean that one is here apologizing to suffering.

The Spirits Book

Organically healthy people – everyone knows – have the free will to decide what to ingest. Then they ingest everything that compromises their organic equilibrium. They smoke, drink, vitiate and overeat themselves in food and, at the end of their existence, they return to the Spiritual Plane as “suicidal” because, with so many abuses against themselves the time that had been granted to them to cross their last passage through the orb due to the imbalances caused to the material body. Possibly, they did not know the quotation from Paul: ” All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient.” – 1 Corinthians 6:12″

On the other hand, people who are born with limitations, because they have their free will partially curtailed due to congenital limitations, cannot advance in actions that could be harmful and organically compromising to them. Simply because they cannot even initiate innumerable actions, however much they wish to perform such acts. That is why it is said that his/her physical deficiency is a protective injury.

Down syndrome, for example, because of the difficulties it imposes on the intellectual development of those who suffer from it, inhibits the birth of negative and self-destructive feelings that harm many normal people, intellectualized or not. A birth injury, which characterizes limb paralysis, and even a dystrophy, does not allow the individual to perform any physical actions that may reach themselves and / or their fellows. Spirits who bring deficiencies in the physical body are protected because they are incapable, due to their limitations.

Protective ills have two specific functions in the lives of those who are subjugated to them: 1) it does not allow them to aggravate the role of past needs due to untimely attitudes; and, 2) they collaborate so that the sufferers develop patience throughout the time in which they had to live under such condition. Those who suffer such ills understand at some point that the revolt will not change their situation. They then submit, rescuing mistakes from the past without increasing his burden with undue new actions.

The conformed submission ends up being a palliative that tends to lessen inner distress. The person understands – and it is true – that the rebellion generated by the inconformity only increases the suffering, bringing with it the feeling that all that will afflict him for eternity.

In most reincarnations, the Spirit himself – looking at his past – asks for his trials to reduce the burden of debts generated in inconsequential attitudes. Often, the wise spirits that accompany the person planning a future reincarnation, advise them to review the size and intensity of the factors chosen to avoid succumbing with new commitments along the new journey.

In truth, protective injuries are unfolding acts in previous lives, because, still and always, with each action, a reaction corresponds.

Study the Spiritist Doctrine. Vows of Light and Peace!

Dark Thoughts

You who are reading these words at this moment, if you are influenced by some depressive feeling and, therefore, thinking of a self-destructive impulse, do not do that.

Feeling yourself exhausted and thinking you are tired of life and are seeking relief by the exiting the material life, try to read this short text till the end for a few minutes more, and after please, make a brief exercise in reflection.

Self-destructive feelings cannot solve any kind of problems, whatever they may be. On the contrary, such feelings only increase personal frustration because they insinuate the erroneous idea that you do not know a way for solving the situation on your own and besides that it will not be worthwhile to seek a help from anyone.

As we all are transmitters and receivers of mental-spiritual vibrations, remaining with this mental posture, you end up attracting and being surrounded by uncouth spirits who are pleased in involving anyone who is going through bitter needs and suicide impulses.

Spiritist Literature is lavish in narratives that portray the plight of those who have allowed themselves to give in to the suicidal impulse because they believed that, leaving the life by his own free will they would be ridding themselves of problems. However, a sad surprise is waiting for them: they did not get rid of their problems; their problems are increased; their burden of suffering is increased.

They came out of material life to be re-entered into Real Life, the Spiritual Life, where nothing is hidden from guardian spirits. They suffer even more because they awake in a place where there is crying and gnashing of teeth and now experience their final moments by the repetition of the last extreme act with which they ended their existence. This extreme act is reacted second by second. Moreover, this will remain for as long as the time they cut off their material life to when their blueprint was for them to die. That means whether someone supposed to live by 80 years and suicide oneself at 60 years old, he/she will be repeatedly suiciding along 20 years in Earth time.

The immediate torment of the suicidal is a torment that seems to be infinite, eternal, for him or her. Their last fatal act in material life, which was the action that caused the extermination of the life, is repeatedly revived. It is the trigger triggered by the blow of the weapon; the jump of the building or the bridge and the panoramic vision of his/her life in the last seconds before the impact; and the sensation of his body flying over the rails of the railroad or the vehicle. In addition, they suffer, repeatedly, that moment, as if it were a movie without any interruption.

It is necessary to persevere in the struggle in search of solutions – which exist! – and always arrive through friends; By written messages or by other means. It cannot be forgotten that the Friend of All our Hours – Jesus! – is attentive to our needs and always sends the resources we need to overcome the afflictions. Evidently, those who succumbed were because they could not identify the relief sent.

When a problem, an affliction, arises, if one surrenders and allows an internal unbalance, this emits perceptible signals to the Spiritual Plane. With the same promptness, that the Friends of the Higher send aid, entities of very low vibratory pattern that characterize the obsessing spirits, also approach the incarnate sufferer and initiate the sieges.

The reincarnated Spirit, not being vigilant in the faith, does not perceive the beneficent fluids upon itself and accedes to the pressure of the lower vibrations, desponding. With this, it seems to him that his situation is even more complicated because those obsessive entities only present them with somber pictures.

At that moment, when surrounded by antagonistic pressures, the decision will depend on the free will of the incarnated Spirit. It will be up to him to decide which force will win. However, the Lord warns that with watching and praying, it will be easier to avoid afflictions.

So dear reader, you would better think well and twice. React! Do not be discouraged, because the solution of your problem has already been forwarded to you. Although you just did not see it, it is waiting for your acceptance as soon as you change your mind.

Review the latest goings on. Raise your head and say to yourself: “I’ll face it! I will win!” and throw away your dark thoughts.

In case of doubt, do not be ashamed or afraid for asking some help, and someone will be routed to assist you. Then, do not give it up. Your best friends from Spiritual world are just waiting for your decision to be made and then they will start to treat your internal wounds.

Great Lecture about Spiritism and Chico Xavier

geraldo-olderIf you watch one video lecture on Spiritism, this is the one to learn about the inside world of Chico Xavier. Geraldo Lemos Neto gives his exclusive knowledge about the history of Chico Xavier (Francisco C. Xavier). He also relates his perspective of what Chico learned and the story behind the stories of the books psychographedgeraldo-with-chico by Chico. The video is in English. If you want to skip the introduction fast forward to minute 6:45.

Link to the YouTube video

 

Interesting points in the video:

Time: 52:54 – At the funeral of his step-mother, who he loved very much, he saw the house disappear, replaced by the universe, then balls of light came down and approached his step-mother. They transformed into angels, and all of the angels kissed his step-mother on her forehead.  Next, his step-mother transformed herself into an angel, waved good-bye and left.

Time: 59.44 – Chico promised to psychograph 100 books, which he finished when he was about 60. He wanted to retire, his spirit guide, Emmanuel, told him that he had bad news for Chico, Jesus had decreed that Chico will spend the rest of his life writing more books. Chico eventually wrote 469 books. This goes to show you that in heaven as well as on earth, the reward for good work is more work. You need to listen to the end of this part, because it is very funny.

Time: 1:14:10 – Emmanuel materialized during a medium ship session. He was about 2 meters (6.5 feet) tall. He had a lighted torch in one hand and the book The Gospel According to Spiritist in the other hand. He told them them this would be the last meeting that materialism would occur. That Chico needs to focus all of his energies on writing.

Time: 1:22:06 – Chico would buy many books and magazines, his police escort wanted to know how he had time to read it all. Chico said he didn’t need to read the book or magazine, he only needed to put his hand on the cover. Chico didn’t understand how this power worked.

Time: 1:33:17 – Chico could also read minds. Chico would respond to people before they asked him questions. Geraldo told about the time he and his wife drove for 5 hours to get to Chico’s house. When they met Chico, he told them about their conversation in the car.

Time: 1:44:39 – In the mid-1980’s Chico predicted that Brazil would find oil. At that time, Brazil had to import all of their oil. Chico predicted that Brazil would find oil more than 5000 meters under the sea. Geraldo said everyone laughed inside, they didn’t believe him. Of course now it is true.

 

 

 

… REST IN PEACE

By Geraldo Goulart

near-deathLarge numbers of people, upon learning about someone’s death, automatically express their feeling saying, “rest in peace”. Such expression is more a cultural attitude than religious one; an act that seems godly, but that does not keep any connection with the reality of the “post-mortem”.

This superficial faith that does not encourage study, no research, and prefers to rely on dogmas, mysteries and symbolism, induces its professed to believe that after disembodiment only what will remain for the righteous is paradise (to the righteous and chosen) or overwhelming flames of hell (to the unrepentant sinners who have not accepted salvation) and thus keep people linked to ignorance about the reality of spiritual life. Most religions says that they shall spend an eternity singing hymns in the Promised Land, if they are a believer, pious and God-fearing. It reveals a total unawareness about how is the Life after life.

They certainly have never heard – or even have read about – that here on Earth we have a faint copy of how the life is in other dimensions. In fact, all the progress made by the earthly man comes from inspiration on the other side of life and, yes, they are achievements that fall far short of the outreach that could have been. If here there are schools, libraries, artistic events, hospitals, places of worship, is because at some point in the past, people were inspired to work those activities and principles for the benefit of earthly society. Therefore, it is easy to conclude that, also on the side, there are institutions – and better ones – developed for the progress of the Spirits.

The first books in the series “Life in the Spirit World” dictated by the Spirit Andre Luiz to the medium Francisco Cândido Xavier, edited by Federação Espírita Brasileira, are rich in surprising revelations

and also in details of life after to what we call on Earth of “death”. From its reading we learn, aboutSONY DSC the organization and administration of the work, rests, entertainments and treatments devoted to the “dead” in some of the cities of beyond. We learn what happens in violent disembodiment caused by traumatic accidents; also those that occur due to serious illness, or by suicide. It is shown to us the spirits are affected by their repeated memories, especially when people were preoccupied with the material goods of earth in their last passage through the planet.

Remember two questions addressed to Emmanuel who is in the CONSOLADOR (FEB), items 147 and 148:

  • Does death provide unexpected changes and some modifications as many desire?

 

       — Death does not lavish miraculous changes to our consciousness.

Disincarnating is simply changing state, you don’t change the infirmities or virtues with the simple release of your body. It is important to observe only the change of the area in which you learn – from the terrestrial to the spirit plane. (…)

 

  •  -What awaits the disembodied man, directly, in the early years of life beyond the grave?

— The disembodied soul naturally seeks the activities that were its favorite in the circles of material life; obeying its similar desires, as it occurs in societies of your world.

Are not your cities replete of associations, of guilds, of whole classes that are joined and that unionize for determined aims, conjugating identical interests of several individuals? There, are not the loan sharks, the politicians, the traders, the priests, aiming at each group to defense of their own interests?

The disembodied, looks for, anxiously, in Space, the similar crowd with his thinking, in order to continue the same kind of life left on Earth, but in the case of passionate and vicious creatures, his mind again will find the materiality obsessions , as money, alcohol, etc., obsessions that become his moral martyrdom of every hour, in the closest spheres of the Earth.

That said, on the other hand, we observe that nature works continuously in the production and reproduction of essential items to the balance of the planet and of material life, then it is easy to deduce that the Creator is also working incessantly. In the Old and New Testament, are about 10 to 12 references to the substantives “rest” and “sleep,” but no one can infer that is “eternal” rest. Both in Psalms as in Deuteronomy and Isaiah, you can read that God works while we sleep. Will it be then that He sleeps or rests while we are woken? But we know that when in one hemisphere is day, in the other is night. So, there is no chance of rest for Him.

The Spiritist Doctrine codified by Allan Kardec, clarifies, in psychographic messages in different countries, the subject that the Supreme Intelligence works incessantly. And with regard to the type work there is also unanimity. In all the books of the Spiritist Pentateuch, there are varied comments on the subject. After analyzing them, it is easy to conclude that the Creator works unceasingly for our progress.

With regard to the “death” it is appropriate that those desiring further information read and reflect on Chapter II of THE BOOK OF SPIRITS where one can find enlightening answers. At the end, readers will understand that there is no “rest in peace” simply because after a necessary short period for the Spirit-101-Front-smallreadapting the Spirit; when one returns to the Spiritual Plan dimension, many surprises and activities await them. Hence death is not the end and the “nothing” does not exist just because life goes on.
