One would postulate that with thousands of combatants, hurling all types of ordinance at each other; infantry on the ground would die in random bunches. After all how could a complex operation, like a live battle be orchestrated to only cause those whose time is up to be mortally wounded. Alas, spirit communications from veterans tell us a different story. Read More.
Progress of Earth
Why are there Catastrophes? If the spirit world loves us, why do so many innocents perish in such tragic circumstances? The answer is, that it is all part of a bigger picture. Read More.
We aren’t just placed on earth in isolation, but to interact with other spirits and incarnates. We have no choice. Even if we lived on a deserted island, there would still be spirits around us, reading our thoughts and supplying us with inspiration. It is meant to be this way; for in this stage of our education we are expected to live amongst the influence of good, bad, and indifferent spirits and humans of every variety. Read More.
Jesus has sent many emissaries to assist our growth on earth. Not all were associated with the Christian religion. China was blessed with the ancient teachings of Confucius, who lived five hundred years before Christ came to our world. Confucius, as Emmanuel explains;
As a missionary of Christ, Confucius had to immerse himself in all the Chinese traditions and accept the imperious circumstances of the environment in order to benefit the country in its ability to fully comprehend (Xavier, 2011, p. 76). Read More.
Most of us have heard of Diogenes, the philosopher, during the time of Socrates and Plato, about 300 years before Christ, who rejected material goods and was reported holding a lamp looking for one honest man in the city of Athens.
None of his writings survived, only scattered reports of his sayings and activities. The most famous is when Alexander the Great came upon Diogenes. Here is the account according to Wikipedia:
It was in Corinth that a meeting between Alexander the Great and Diogenes is supposed to have taken place. The accounts of Plutarch and Diogenes Laërtius recount that they exchanged only a few words: while Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, “Yes, stand out of my sunlight”. Alexander then declared, “If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes.”
In the book, The Spiritist Review – 1859, Allan Kardec published an account whereby a group of mediums evoked Diogenes. Here is the report of the account:
14. Is it true what they say about your interview with Alexander?
- Very true. History has even truncated it.
15. What is it that history has truncated
- I refer to other conversations between the two of us. Do you really think that he came to see me to tell me one word only?
16. Is the statement attributed to him true that if he were not Alexander he would be Diogenes?
- He might have said that but not in my presence. Alexander was a crazy, vain and proud young man. In his eyes, I was nothing more than a beggar. How could the tyrant be educated by the miserable?
17. Have you reincarnate on Earth after your life in Athens?
- No, but in other worlds. I currently belong to a world in which we are not slaves. It means that if you were evoked in a state of vigil you could not attend the request. As I do tonight.
18. Could you delineate to us the qualities that you were looking for in man, how you conceived it then and how you conceive it now?
- In the past: courage, boldness, self-confidence and power over people by intelligence. Now: abnegation, kindness and power over people by heart.
- [The Spiritist Review – Journal of Psychological Studies – 1859, 2015, United States Spiritist Council, p. 33]
There are two significant revelations in the spirit communication above. First is when Diogenes says he lives in a world where people are not slaves. This sounds to me like a remark made to a college freshman, who is regulated when he or she can enter or leave the dorms from a person who has graduated and moved on. I believe this short sentence from Diogenes perfectly illustrates our plight on earth. We are students, closely monitored, with little freedom of action, during our required period in our school of life.
Once we are done with our mandatory training, we will be given the luxury of increased freedom of movement. We will be trusted citizens of the spirit universe.
The second important statement is Diogenes’ refactoring of his original list of qualities, from courage and boldness to abnegation, a rejection of the glory and riches that quickness of action and power over people brings us. Power from the head is replaced by motivation from the heart. All central to the principles of Spiritism.

An Amazing Expedition Into . . . A Limitless Mind. By Lawrence on July 30, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
After my Near Death Expedition, and being coached by a Celestial Tour Guide, I must have read over 50 various books, charts and journals on the subject, but this book is truly an incredibly lucid overview of all previous treasures.
In my opinion, if you either have had … or … would like to vicariously experience an amazing expeditions … this is “The Seminal Travel Guide” … of all previously written.
If you would like to literally “know how to” create your own personal depth-of-meaning and understandings about “Your” life … without the cultural clutter and baggage attachments … or institutional dogma, fog or bias … I highly recommend this book on how to create and control “Your” own life while eliminating the useless barriers to your life’s choices.
As your own captain, it will guide and position you on top of “Your” ship’s “Crow’s Nest” with a: i) Meta Scope, ii) a Compass, and iii) your own Sextant or GPS empowering you to chart and record your own “personal” expeditions as to: 1) Where you have been … 2) Where you are currently at … and … 3) Why and Where you want to go to next.

In their quest to determine the optimal system of government which fits our human condition, the Spirit world deliberately set in motion competing forms of governing. Having had a long history of tribal and kingship ruling experience, they knew these types of organizations did not promote the correct atmosphere for individual and collective improvement that was required. They used ancient Greece to survey a range of regimes from totalitarianism to democracy. Emmanuel surveys the trials of various forms of governments in ancient Greece and compares the results to the regimes that existed in pre-World War II Europe; Read More.
In the book, Jesus in the home, in Chapter 24 – The Signs of a Renewal, Jesus speaks about what our world will be like when the people of our planet become in tune with the Divine Kingdom. I believe our Christ is providing us a glimpse into what a world of regeneration may be like.
Here is what he says;
“When the Divine Kingdom is at the gates of humankind, the soul of the world will be renewed.” … Read More.
