Spiritism

What is the doctrine of Spiritism?

Beginnings of a Spirit – This means you!

If we are spirits, how did we begin? We are immortal, but we did start and we are still learning how to behave.

Work and Evolution – A Spirit Tell Us We Must Strive to Improve Ourselves

At the end of the day we all know there is no giving up, there is no abandoning ship, no disappearing from our responsibilities. Emmanuel, the spirit guide to Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier tells us that we need to work in order to evolve. Without growth and change we stagnate.

We are Inherently Dependent on Each Other

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 other humans.

Why Children and Childhood? – The answer from a Spirit

VirginMary-Jesus An anonymous spirit communicated the reason for children and childhood, which appeared in The Spiritist Review magazine of 1859. The magazine was published and edited by Allan Kardec. The message lays out why the time of childhood is important. Read More.

Death Bed Agony – It may not be what it seems

death-bedWe 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.

In the book, Sex and Destiny, by the Spirit Andre Luiz, and psychographed by Francisco C. Xavier, there is a plot about two families and their complicated relationships between themselves and discarnate spirits.  Read More.

Faith Must be Rational – Material Aspiration Replaced by Spiritual

reincarnation3There is an interesting section in a translated communication titled The Life of Jesus. It was reportedly a communication from spirit Jesus to a medium in France in the 19th century. The medium was only known as Medium X. The book was translated into Italian, then Spanish, then into English. It was not completed until a second medium took up the work in the 20th century.

Controlling Your Mind is the Most Difficult Task in the World

The wisdom from the Spirit Realm comes to us from many sources and times:

Quote from Wikipedia about the Poet Thayumanavar:

Thayumanavar or Tayumanavar, Tamil: தாயுமானவர் Tāyumānavar (1705–1744), was a Tamil spiritual philosopher from Tamil NaduIndia. Thayumanavar articulated the Saiva Siddhanta philosophy. He wrote several Tamil hymns of which 1454 are available. His first four songs were sung 250 years ago at the Congress of Religions in Tiruchirappalli. His poems follow his own mystical experience, but they also outline the philosophy of South Indian Hinduism, and the Tirumandiram by Saint Tirumular in its highest form, one that is at once devotional and nondual, one that sees God as both immanent and transcendent.

Thayumanavar’s key teaching is to discipline the mind, control desires and meditate peacefully. He went on to say that “it is easy to control an elephant, catch hold of the tiger’s tail, grab the snake and dance, dictate the angels, transmigrate into another body, walk on water or sit on the sea; but it is more difficult to control the mind and remain quiet”. (accessed on April 15, 2021 – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thayumanavar )

I read his poem in full in the book in PDF – Autobiography of a Yogi (p.420):

“The ubiquitous religious shrines of Mysore are a constant reminder of the many great saints of South India. One of these masters, Thayumanavar, has left us the following challenging poem:

You can control a mad elephant;

You can shut the mouth of the bear and the tiger;

You can ride a lion;

You can play with the cobra;

By alchemy you can eke out your livelihood;

You can wander through the universe incognito;

You can make vassals of the gods;

You can be ever youthful;

You can walk on water and live in fire;

But control of the mind is better and more difficult.”

The Allegory of the Cave – Plato

deathofSocratesI read Plato as a student and truth be told, I didn’t analyze too deeply Plato’s allegory of the cave. Let me refresh your memory (from Wikipedia):

“Plato has Socrates describe a gathering of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from things passing in front of a fire behind them, and they begin to give names to these shadows. The shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, for he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_Cave]

Here is more detail on the prisoner’s return to the cave after he had seen the outside world:

“Plato continues, saying that the freed prisoner would think that the real world was superior to the world he experienced in the cave; “he would bless himself for the change, and pity [the other prisoners]” and would want to bring his fellow cave dwellers out of the cave and into the sunlight.

The returning prisoner, whose eyes have become acclimated to the light of the sun, would be blind when heSocratesv1 re-enters the cave, just as he was when he was first exposed to the sun. The prisoners, according to Socrates, would infer from the returning man’s blindness that the journey out of the cave had harmed him and that they should not undertake a similar journey. Socrates concludes that the prisoners, if they were able, would therefore reach out and kill anyone who attempted to drag them out of the cave.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_Cave]

This allegory is usually interpreted from an epistemological point of view, which is a long word describing how we look at things (belief) from our own base of knowledge.

Plato ended the story with Socrates telling Glaucon (the pupil he was talking to):

“This entire allegory, I said, you may now append, dear Glaucon, to the previous argument; the prison-house is the world of sight, the light of the fire is the sun, and you will not misapprehend me if you PlatosCaveinterpret the journey upwards to be the ascent of the soul into the intellectual world according to my poor belief, which, at your desire, I have expressed whether rightly or wrongly God knows. But, whether true or false, my opinion is that in the world of knowledge the idea of good appears last of all, and is seen only with an effort; and, when seen, is also inferred to be the universal author of all things beautiful and right, parent of light and of the lord of light in this visible world, and the immediate source of reason and truth in the intellectual; and that this is the power upon which he who would act rationally, either in public or private life must have his eye fixed.” [http://webspace.ship.edu/cgboer/platoscave.html]

The Spiritual Intent of the Allegory of the Cave

While I can certainly understand reading the allegory to be one about our limited knowledge and how we process it, I see a more straightforward lesson. That is, we must look beyond what is shown us in this world, by our base senses and the influence of our society and look spiritually above us to moral truths, to Divine truths.

Plato has Socrates tell us directly to” interpret the journey upwards to be the ascent of the soul into the intellectual world”. Which, I propose, is the spirit world, for only in that realm are we allow to fully use our intellect without the presence of numerous physical and emotional distractions. Only by transcending the influence of current society and leaving behind what we are told on a daily basis; what is good for us and what we should desire, can we begin learning what life is like out of the cave. For that is the reason we are on earth; to rise above the fray and become loving and caring individuals, even in the face of immense pressure to conform to what we know isn’t right.

The Prophecy of the Allegory of the Cave

There is a second message in the allegory of the cave and it is prophetic. The philosopher comes into the cave and tries to reveal a new world to the people chained to the wall watching the shadows. Socrates tells us that anyone trying to extricate the prisoners would meet with bodily harm.

Four hundred years later, Christ would attempt to reveal a new world and would be crucified for his effort. Continue on for hundreds, if not thousands of years, people are still dying, or at least being shouted down in their attempt to expose a new method of thinking on a class of people content with their world, as they see it.

The Physical Meaning of the Allegory of the Cave

There is also a third message. Notice how the prisoners only detect two dimensions in their analysis of life. The philosopher escapes and for the first time sees, not only length and width, but also depth. He sees a three-dimensional world.

Our world is three-dimensional. In the book Beyond the Veil, by the Rev. G. Vale Owen, the spirit Astriel tells him the spirit world is at least four-dimensional. Spirits can see length, width, depth and also time. They are able to focus on an object and see the past and the future.

We when leave our prison, we too shall emerge into a rich environment that is beyond our senses in our current body.

I have most probably gone from under-analyzing to over-analyzing the words of Socrates as interpreted by Spirit-101-Front-smallPlato, but I have learned that there are multiple meanings within passages aplenty in messages from the spirit realm. Keep in mind, as told to us by Emmanuel, in the book On the Way to the Light, Socrates was sent by Jesus to enlighten the Greeks. As with Jesus, Socrates too, was killed for his efforts.

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.
