What is our goal? In Spiritism, the Doctrine states that we live through multiple lives to become a higher or pure spirit. What does it mean to be a pure spirit? Leon Denis, who has communicated with the spirit world, tells us, as well, as hints into the realm of a pure spirit from other books psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier. Read More.
What is Spiritism and how it affects you.
A high spirit is not only a creature full of immense love and caring, but possess power to create via their will. The ability to craft new solar systems and life. Command to move planets and stars. When Jesus said that faith can move mountains, he was speaking literally. Read More.
The spirit world is concerned with each and every one of us. Our guardian angels take no pleasure seeing us struggle, since they have all been there before. Even though, they comprehend that most times we need the suffering presented to us. But within the confines of letting us survive and learn from our trials, the spirit world actively guides and helps us. Read More.
The Law of Affinity – How does it cause us to change our character for the better? This Divine Law places us with others who are like us. We live with those who share our good or bad characteristics. We soon learn that we prefer to be with those who treat us with respect and love. Hence, if we have treated others wrongly, we live with those who treat us the same as we have treated others – we soon learn the error of our ways. Click here to watch my YouTube video.

“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.

Many thanks to the readers of this blog for taking the time to explore my thoughts on the magnificent Doctrine of Spiritism.
On this day of thanks for the coming of Jesus, I also think of the immense contributions of Allan Kardec, Chico Xavier, Yvonne Pereira, Leon Denis, G. Vale Owen, and other Spiritist authors without whom I would not have been able to discover the truth about the universe.
Not only did the incarnated authors contribute to Spiritism, but the spirits who worked with us poor humans, such as Emmanuel, Andre Luiz, Camilo Branco and countless others who daily take the time to guide us, manage Spiritist Centers and put up with our constant failures and weaknesses.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
A member of our Spiritist Facebook group, Spiritism and the Spirit World Around Us, (please join!) pointed us to where there is one of Leon Denis’s books in PDF format.
First a little bit about Leon Denis, straight from Wikipedia:
Léon Denis (January 1, 1846 – March 12, 1927) was a notable spiritist philosopher, and with Gabriel Delanne and Camille Flammarion, one of the principal exponents of spiritism after the death of Allan Kardec. He lectured throughout Europe at international conferences of spiritism and spiritualism, promoting the idea of survival of the soul after death and the implications of this for human relations. He is known as the apostle of French spiritism.
Also, if you read the book, Memoirs of a Suicide, by Yvonne A. Pereira, you will read in the preface that the spirit of Leon Denis assisted her in organizing the book. The book was published in 1955 and Denis died in 1927. Hence, once more proving that if you are a Spiritist, after you die, you are put to work right away!

Spiritism, the Third Revelation, brought to us by The Spirit of Truth, as promised by Jesus in the New Testament, tells us that we are born on earth to live through a series of trials. Trials determined by ourselves, in concert with our spirit mentors, to atone for past wrongs and to remove blemishes from our spirit character on our way to become a pure spirit.
While our attitudes and choices within trials are up to us, as dictated by the promise of free-will for all souls, the formation of the obstacles placed in front of us is for the most part static. In rare instances, the details of trials may be altered, but overall, what was written will occur. Read More.
