Happiness and purpose

Happiness is unattainable without a spiritual practice and a philosophy of life that implies the perception of purpose for the human condition and for the existence as a whole — call it Spirituality, Transcendentality, Divinity, or whatever one wishes.

The fact is that, for psychic reasons and even for a neurophysiological basis, the human being does not achieve wholeness, the sense of deep personal fulfillment, unless they see meaning in living and being in the world.

Management of oneself and one’s life – Message from Mary Christ

Life is what it is.

Events are never determinable, although they can be relatively manageable, according to the circumstances, potentials and resources of the people involved in them.

Not even your psyche is under your full control. Educate and discipline yourself, but it is essential that you respect, on the other hand, the evolutionary limits that you now exhibit, in your psychological, intellectual and moral traits, especially those of a structural nature, inaccessible to an approach focused on immediate changes.

Faced with the unpredictability and complexity inherent to existence, learn to let go of the idea of complete control over yourself and your own life and exercise confident and serene surrender to the Divine Providence, after making sure that you have done everything within your power and that your conscience points out as your personal responsibility, within a certain scenario of events and in the face of a certain enigma or set of challenges that have been presented to you to observe and interact with.

The Sacred and the pathetic – Message from Mary Christ

Hope is a moral duty – lucid faith constitutes its possible corollary, with the inner work of reflection, of spiritual search and devotional practices, in a systematic and tireless commitment over long periods of time…

Ordinarily, no one obtains an elementary school diploma without dedicating successive years of daily study to it. No one acquires proficiency in any professional area of activity without training and developing specific skills, which often, to achieve excellence, demand decades of diligence, effort and sacrifices that are difficult to measure.

How could anyone who is used to a mature, sensible and intelligent approach presume that the most complex of all cognitive functions – the expanded perception of reality, which encompasses transcendentality – could be achieved with a few brief incursions of superficial doubts and contestations at a level of simplicity equivalent to the experience that opposes it: the fanatical belief.

Only narrow minds, stuck in the animal senses, assume that mocking Spirituality and Divinity does not fall within the narrow spectrum of arrogance, presumption, blasphemy and, commonly, pathetic callowness.

The authentic mystical experience of the Sacred requires time, a lot of time… centuries… millennia…

Axis of absurdities and horrors – Message from Mary Christ

God Is. No definition is proper for Him-Her – any conceptualization would restrict the Absolute to the limited human gnoseological spectrum.

Nothing can be outside of the Being. Nothingness is a mere abstraction of the human mind. Even the space-time continuum, as well as the matter-energy binomial, to exist or “sprout” from “nothing”, require the pre-existence of physical laws. Who or What is the Source of these laws?

Affirming the denial of existence is the most crass and absurd philosophical contradiction, a primary flaw of the lucid flow of thinking, a gross collapse of sensible reasoning.

When a person asserts that the Divinity or that their own spirit does not exist, they are implying, already in the act of opining, that they themselves do not exist.

Simple and obvious like that.

If someone has not understood the assertions, axiomatic par excellence, that we have just explained, they can make elaborated spins of language and philosophy or wild calculations in mathematics and physics – by the way, both language and philosophy as mathematics and physics would not even exist without the Being –, but they will continue to revolve around an axis of grotesque absurdities, because, in addition to alienating themselves intellectually, they will still foster cynicism, nihilism and desperation, in a domino effect, wherever that unwary individual dares to voice their incoherent and unconscious preaching.

Militant atheism hurts, maddens and leads to a lack of meaning for living millions of sensitive souls and intellects less robust to face its fallacies and pseudo-intelligent, schizoid and diabolical sophisms, due to its so disastrous consequences, especially in a civilization that is already on the verge of the apocalypse in several possible ways, and which urgently needs discourses that foster hope and the idea of purpose, and not the renunciation of any order of meaning for human existence – an inexorable side effect of the materialist-atheist worldview.

Women vs. weapons 

Written statement submitted by Instituto Salto Quantico (Sociedade Filantrópica Maria de Nazaré, an organization with special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council) for the 67th session of the Commission on the Status of Women¹. 

 It is well known that there are practical and economically feasible ways, using digital technology, to guarantee a better-quality education for girls and women all over the world, enabling them, even those living in the poorest and most remote regions of the planet, to be included in the world of formal education and basic professional training, as well as in the primary elements of civics and political awareness.  

Simplified digital applications that offer internet access, even if via satellite, and a minimally effective and trained organization of teachers recruited to make the necessary cultural and linguistic adaptations in this global movement of mass education, are perfectly achievable when there is – as has been known all along – political will on the part of the governments of the wealthier and more developed nations, in the sense of an appropriate orchestration of material and human resources, with the engagement of non-governmental organizations and volunteers not affiliated to specific political, religious or social advocacy groups. 

It is lamentable to observe, year after year, the neglect of the greatest humanitarian cause of our time – in our opinion – because it encompasses, directly or indirectly, literally or metaphorically, all other minority causes: the rediscovery of the sacred value of femininity and, consequently, the empowerment of all women, since girlhood. 

While an ocean of financial resources is continuously dedicated to space exploration and other investment fronts of more or less questionable value in pragmatic and also moral terms, such as the powerful arms industry, we note, with horror, the contempt, to a demeaning degree, suffered by half of the human species – that of the female gender -, especially in poor countries or in cultures where misogyny and patriarchy are more deeply rooted or even fiercely celebrated.  

The time has come to put a stop to such a serious crisis of planetary conscience, tragically symbolized in the oppressive and genocidal feature of hypertrophied and degenerated masculinity in stereotyped and apocalyptic phalluses: the nuclear missiles, both those considered “merely” tactical and strategic, in a surreal threat of nuclear Armageddon, in the middle of the third decade of the 21st century!
