Rupture of the ego, for the rapture of the Spirit

Beloved children:

May each sincere devotee promote the rupture of the walls of his/her own ego, to favor the rapture of his/her Spirit to the Kingdom of Heavens, within his/herself.

For this, it is essential to be sure to detect the voice of the conscience, which does not condone norms of castrating moralism, conditioned to circumstantial and arbitrary cultural systems of time and place, often disagreeing with the universal principles of good, of justice, of love.

The attunement that one manages to maintain with the timeless ideas and values of benevolence – that, indeed, constitutes the reverberation of the Divine Will in one’s heart, invariably indicating the highest coefficient of peace and happiness that one can achieve, in one’s present evolutionary moment, inside or outside dense matter.

It is relevant to highlight, however, that the peace and the happiness to which we refer to do not correspond to the concepts of tranquility and joy of the physical domain of today’s Earth.

Peace, in its deep sense, of alignment of the individual with his/her most authentic axis of being, knowing and feeling, inexorably generates strong internal and/or external conflicts, because it does not accommodate to personal conveniences nor to social conventions.

And happiness, in its true fundaments, has nothing to do with the euphoria of the ephemeral satisfaction of sensorial or egoic passions. Contrarily, it very often implies renouncing worldly desires and whims, although it does not necessarily contradict the physiological functions of the body or the healthy aspects of personal dignity.

Bliss, state of grace and self-actualization concern directly to the fulfillment of one’s duties, in a level of vocational and devotional essence that, unfortunately, only a minority of the earthly humanity is willing to experience, given the narrow path of unappealable and refined disciplines of sentiment and conduct, well beyond the set of precepts established by dogmatic religions or by legislation and customs in effect in the material plane of existence.

When dealing with a theme as complex as essential, we face an obvious and almost insurmountable obstacle: the human creatures of today in the orb, even those considered decent, have an extremely low degree of self-knowledge. For this reason, the psychological scourge and the social horrors persist, as a result of so much contradiction, hypocrisy and spiritual bankruptcy, in all areas of civilization.

With this lack of knowing oneself in-depth, the overwhelming majority of the earthly population goes through life with two parallel and often conflictive agendas: one conscious and the other unconscious.

May each legitimate seeker of the Light strive to identify the moral infirmities and deformities that he/she does not see in him/herself, despite finding them, somewhat easily, in others.

Supplied with greater lucidity and courage to see him/herself as sinful and limited, as he/she actually is, he/she will then be able to dig the secret land of the soul, so as to find the hidden treasure of the angel in seed that awaits the opportunity to germinate and offer fruits to the world, even if in modest measure and poor quality.

This is how authentic spiritual awakening happens. As taught by the Christ Jesus, the Kingdom of Heaven is similar to a minuscule grain of mustard seed that, sprouting and thriving, becomes a leafy and fruitful tree, on whose branches the “birds of the Sky” (the Angels of God) make their nests: the metaphorical home of the prolific “communion of the saints”, the synergic psychospiritual relationship between Beings of higher levels of consciousness and those who receive, with a genuine and eager willingness to serve, Their inspiration in favor of the common good.

The Message that Mary Christ asked to be sent to the UN Economic and Social Council

Much more than a women’s right to gender equality

For successive centuries, it was believed, as an unquestionable axiom, that women could not take positions considered to be of greater responsibility, because they would be inept to play roles that were regarded as exclusively meant for the modus operandi of men, for the masculine way of perceiving and thinking the world.

In the early decades of the modern feminist movement, great benefactors of humanity have bravely postulated that women were fully capable of performing any task executed by their counterparts of the opposite gender. The two great world wars of the twentieth century made this potential very clear, with the immersion, in mass, of millions of women in industrial and battlefield support activities.

For most of the past century, countless legions of sisters of our species then made the effort to psychologically cross-dress, acting, speaking and even interpreting existence from a male perspective, so that they could be respected as competent professionals and academics.

As the end of the last century approached, however, it began to sprout, in professional women of various fields, the willingness to imprint into the workplace their feminine prism of seeing, feeling and acting, adding significant value to the efficiency of business, research and achievements, in all areas of human action and knowledge. It became obvious, hence, that women could not only do everything that men could, but they could do it differently and, very often, better.

In the universe of science, of the arts, of public administration, of media, among others, bloomed the realization that the feminine presence brings, in every sense, an extraordinary complementation of productivity and of quality in services, creations and deliberations, within institutions, companies, human groupings. Still to this day, women’s contribution is barely dimensioned. Nonetheless, they have broadened angles of observation, opened previously undetected possibilities of solution to old problems, integrated apparently divergent perspectives. They also have carried sensitivity, intuition, beauty to the contexts they take part in, although many of their contributions are not even measurable or immediately profitable.

The results, however, in the course of the last decades, of this movement of insertion of women in all sectors of social life, becoming more and more powerful in culture, in politics, in entrepreneurship each day, have not yet been clearly recognized and are often understood as consequences of a natural evolution of civilization. Yes, there is this development, coupled to a revolution of paradigms; yes, there is an expansion of the potential to grasp the reality, a greater lucidity and shrewdness in the interpretation of events, a more accurate intuition in the pursuit of purposes and creative solutions to problems. But all this can be perfectly attributed, without any exaggeration in the association of cause and effect, to the progressive and massive participation of women in the concert of societies.

Finally, at the turn of the century, it was already clear enough, in more enlightened environments, that women’s influence was of paramount importance to the broader and more effective success of any enterprise, to the point that their male colleagues began to realize the need to acquire certain skills more peculiar to the feminine psyche, such as empathy, tolerance for difference, the power to endure contradictory and indeterminately unresolvable situations.

Even leadership, so valued in our ultra-competitive culture, has been much better understood and exercised by women, in accordance with contemporary principles of respect for difference of opinion, for free will, for discernment, for the personal choices of others. And so, men more attentive to the evolutionary trend lines of the culture and of the “collective organism” began to realize the need to compensate themselves for their limitations in many of these so relevant cognitive and social abilities that women have and that almost spontaneously sprout from their complex and subjective feminine minds, such as the greater propensity to multitasking and to the spirit of coordination and cooperation in work teams.

Today, women are seen as more appropriate options for many positions of action and command that before were entirely dominated by the masculine gender, just as more feminine men or even gay men, in various professional settings, end up being privileged, exactly for having an experience of better integration of the two complementary psychic poles (feminine and masculine) of human consciousness.

On the other hand, in considering the historical crisis of survival we are experiencing on a world scale, especially in regards to environmental issues, to fratricidal clashes between cultures and civilizations and to progressive nuclear arms race between nations, it becomes evident that the feminine worldview and their inclusive and conciliatory approaches are urgently needed.

Therefore, we are of the opinion that, with the utmost urgency and in the greatest quantity possible, women must be placed in prominent positions – in the heart of communities, countries and organizations –, to heal the dangerous imbalance generated by the exacerbated masculinity and to reverse the risk of extinction of our species on the globe and the devastation of the entire planetary biosphere.

We understand, therefore, that it is not simply a women’s right to gender equality, but a moral duty for all of us (men and women), a crying need for humanity: to honor femininity, in order to foster, by all the means and resources available to us, the ascension of women to positions in the upper echelons and preferably of direct leadership, in the fabric of society, in as many and as broad battlefronts as possible.

Intelligence and sexism

Prejudice, in its most refined and profound expression, is invisible. How many times have we heard praise from women, for their intellectual skills? Yet, how easy it is for men to be noticed in their attributes of intelligence and education, often not much developed…

The need for union

It is necessary a greater unity among Spiritists, among Catholics, among various Christian denominations… Yet, friend, the topic is much broader, more serious and profound.
Our Lord Jesus, from the height of the Cross, beseeched the Supreme Being: “Father, may they all be One.” The required union far transcends the narrow limits of the religious segments. Humanity needs to unite as a whole, beyond the borders of creed, nationality, language, race, sexuality, social or professional class, or in any other item of definition we come up with to separate ourselves from one another, in our multi-millennial moral insanity.
Unless we stop looking at each other with suspicion, with the crazy pretension of being superior or even — the delusion of delusions — God’s favorites, we will be inspired by evil forces and far from being in tune with the true Level of Consciousness of the Christ of God, who asked us to love one another, including our enemies.
We have to wake up, while we can from our childish, perverse and genocidal dream of judging — in the unconscious level for some — that God has favorites and condemns to perpetual and immeasurable suffering individuals He-She created. Let us not make the sacrilegious mistake, so repeated throughout history, of basing ourselves on passages from the bible or from other holy scriptures to endorse our psychopathies and unspeakable wickedness.

The ancient and complex literary pieces of the religious traditions lend themselves to all kinds of interpretation. It is up to each reader to give the due respect to what is Sacred when seeking to understand the Everlasting words, the Spirit behind the letter, the subliminal aspects of these records, so archaic and many times translated, to avoid making ourselves blasphemous, projecting our human disturbances in messages of Celestial Origin.

Fraternity without borders

Let’s understand the importance of experiencing the bonds of fraternity, inside and outside circuits of blood or marriage, so that we not only grow toward the great network of universal fraternity, but that we also improve the quality of our most intimate affective bonds.

May all interpersonal contact be guided by the idea of equality and solidarity, with the least possible possessiveness and manipulation, unfortunately so common in human relations on Earth.
