Death Bed Agony – It May Not Be What It Seems – We have all witnessed, in movies at least, the scenes of an agonizing death, one that we wished could be cut short for the poor person experiencing horrible last minutes on earth. But we are told, this is the absolute wrong course to take. The last minutes are important and should not be curtailed. Click here to watch my YouTube video.
Fate, what is it? How is your fate determined?
Predestination is like being a blind pilot – The knowledge that our life is predetermined poses problems. Do we give up and let life take us where it wants to, or do we continue to strive for what we think we should attain. The answer is – we should never tire in our struggle to redefine ourselves and to fulfill our commitment to work. We are on earth to learn, and to educate ourselves involves self-discipline and effort – even though certain trials and tribulation shall occur – our strength and knowledge will help us thrive through the most difficult of times.

Beginning in the remotest ages with primitive tribes there has been a recurring theme of our destiny being guided by supreme powers. The Old and New Testaments actually tell of events being managed by God. Allan Kardec published the Spirits Book which for the first time started to reveal the extent the Hand of God plays into our past, present, and future activities. The books psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier expose some of the exact processes by which we are directed.
This article collects together and describes the tools by which the Spirit world pushes and pulls the levers and sets the dials to manipulate the human race to achieve their desired results.
I found this marvelous book, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna & Lao Tzu, by Richard Hooper. In it he compares similar passages in different combinations of four religious prophets. He, and others before him, analyze who was first to create the tenets and who stole what idea from whom. Whereas, Spiritist realize there are many similarities because they were sent to earth to preach the same doctrine. Each slightly affected by different cultures and times.
I found on pages 138 to 139 sayings about reincarnation;
Jesus: Be merciful that you may obtain mercy. Forgive, so that you may be forgiven. As you judge, so you will be judged. As you serve, so will service be done to you. And whatever you measure out, that is what will be returned to you. [The Gospel According to Matthew]
Krishna: Everyone creates their own fate. Even life in the womb is affected by the karma from a previous life. [The Garuda Purana]
Buddha: From a sound, an echo returns. A body creates a shadow. So, too, will misery come to him who does evil works. [Three Sermons]
All three could have been lifted from the Doctrine of Spiritism. Our actions in one life shall affect our next life. How much plainer could all three be?
Why then do people still insist on committing the wrong deeds? Because, many do not believe that we truly are spirit beings who come to earth to learn and pay our debts. I can certainly understand that. I was in that category for many years. But once you internalize the enormity of reincarnation, your entire outlook alters and sacrificing the progress of your soul for momentary material gain becomes out of the question.
If you would like to explore more about reincarnation and why we must go through multiple trials to become a pure spirit, please read my book, The Case for Reincarnation – Your Path to Perfection.
“In the frontal lobes, Andre, the physical exteriorization of important perispiritual centers, there are millions of cells waiting for human effort in the area of spiritualization in order to become operative. Not one of the most daring thinkers of humankind from ancient times up till now has ever managed to use a tenth of them. They are energies of a virgin field, which the soul will gain not only through evolutionary continuity but also through self-education, moral improvement and sublime elevation. My friend, only a living and revealing faith can initiate such an endeavor as an indispensable trailblazing light for individual progress.” [In the Greater World, 2009, p. 140]
The spirit world doesn’t equip us with facilities without a purpose. My guess is that at some future state of our planet, when we become a regenerative or happy world the power of our minds will be unlocked.

The Arc of Evolution – All Things Progress – When we were young, we thought of the animals and the entire world as static. While we knew we would grew older, we thought everything else stayed the same. Mountains didn’t move, oceans didn’t recede, and humans would always be human. Read More.
All of us have felt ready to give up the battle. In the book, Spiritual Wisdom: Missives of Hope, Chico Xavier writes of a young man who told others in the mediums meeting that he felt overwhelmed.
