Religion and faith

You have to be tolerant
But by seeking our own values
Any religion is useful, however...
Watch out for drifts

  « Man has grown materially without developing internally. Previous designs are outdated and not replaced by anything. »
[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]

 What does faith mean?

« The opposite of faith is not doubt, but fear . »
(Father Pedro Casaldáliga missionary in Brazil)

« (...) I will only live a year and a half but during this time my parents and I will learn Compassion, Letting go and Faith.
 Not faith in any divinity but Faith, the one that remains when all that could be done on a human level has been accomplished.
 When in the empty space in which nothing seems to exist and which scares us so much, the Essence of our being begins to be reborn, the Self that sleeps deep inside each of us
☆ Excerpt from the page: "Taking-back-control" :

Every being is connected to their inner Self,
which is connected to God.

 Our inner being

 « In you there are two characters, one terrestrial, stuck to matter, mired in its heaviness, and the other celestial, letting itself be carried by the light. The moment you conceive your two poles, you become greedy for unity and begin your quest for purity. But that's also where the trouble begins! In the innocence of unconsciousness you found a certain tranquility, operating in the same patterns for generations, fit to taste the pleasures of the flesh.
 However, as soon as your consciousness opens to greater lucidity, your thirst for clarity comes up against the shadows.
 In the grip of an existential despair, your mind then plays monumental tricks on you. You become the prey of grief, terrible doubts, loneliness and your impatience.
 We are with you more than ever in these wanderings. Because then we recognize in you the flame, the inner fire.

 Then begins an interior dialogue between your soul, which has already recognized us, and us who are your servants, your companions on the way. At your side, ready to support you in the difficult passages, smiling at your stammerings as a child of light.

 In your heart of hearts, ego of earth and soul of light manifest themselves to each other and show themselves in turn. There is no point in adjusting them with a master's hand, there is no point in wishing for their fruitful friendship. Their role is not to oust each other. Thus you grow, by making in you the union of your part of incarnated man and your part of brilliance of light. It is there, in the balanced axis between these two aspects of yourself, that you touch that you touch the new dimension that allows you to Over-Live (among earthly torments). Then your personality of light irrigates your being incarnated in matter for a happy birth: that of the new Man in you, an incarnated reflection of the Father Creator. »

  (...) If you believe I have a voice – I can speak.
  If you don't believe it – I'm mute.
  We come down through your faith,

  Faith cannot be more than deed.

  Deed cannot be more than faith,

 It's what you believe in that determines your actions.
You only act within the limits of your faith.

 « Be careful, your coachman is dangerous and malevolent, said Rabbi Baal-Shem to one of his followers. I saw him pass in front of the church and he didn't cross himself; if he doesn't love his God, why would he love you? »
[Elie Wiesel, 'Hasidic Celebration']

 « He (the Rebbe) always celebrated what he called "our beautiful faith". When others said such things I felt uneasy, not wanting to be so closely associated with any group. But seeing it so much – what's the word? – cheerful, I suppose, at his age, was attractive. Maybe faith didn't mean much to me, but to him it did. We could see how much it allowed him to be at peace. But I didn't know many people who were. »

« There is only one law on which all the great religions of the world are built, and that is: God is one. He is One. You will love Him with all your might and with all your soul.
 This universal law is the Law of One.

 (...) Truth - whatever the label, or religion in "ism", or worship - comes from One Source. Aren't there trees of different species? oaks, ashes, pines? Each of them meets a need. All have a place to fill. Do not criticize any of them, but rather try to show you an excellent pine, or ash, or oak. »
[a reading by Edgar Cayce]

 « So as not to close his teaching to non-Christians, Cayce uses words other than God to say 'God'. He says: the Creative Force(s), the Cosmic Forces, the Universal or Cosmic Energies, the Universal Soul-Consciousness, the Creator, etc. »

 « (...) I saw the city as it had been before the arrival of the white man. The inhabitants there led a simple life, as innocent as children, honoring the Supreme Being whom they designated by a name in their language. This is not why they venerated him less   "in spirit and in truth"  because their simple faith was inspired in them by the   universal "Great Spirit"   and property of no creed, of no chapel. »
[ Franchezzo Farnèze & Pierre Jovanovic "The explorer of the beyond" ]

 « I didn't understand why, according to the religions, we had to love Him and even adore Him, when we didn't know on what basis. I was outside religion and I remain so, because it does not suit me in its principle of obligation to love God, added to this terrible sentence:God will recognize his own. »

 To you, who for all these years has been running back and forth and searching earnestly in books, teachings, philosophies and religions.

 To you, who too often only caught a glimpse of this “Truth”, only to find that it vanished into nothingness, like a desert mirage, after you had pursued it and tried to grasp it;

 To you, who thought you had found it in the person of some great instructor, perhaps the mentor of some Association, Fraternity or Religion; whom you yourself have recognized as "Master", however marvelous the wisdom he professes and the works he accomplishes; this to realize later that this “Master” was, like you, only a human personality with its faults, its weaknesses and its secret sins; no matter even if though this personality would have served as a channel for the expression of many magnificent teachings, which seemed to you to be the highest “Truth”;

 There you are, tired and hungry soul, not knowing where or what to turn to.

 To you: « I am. »

  « The human soul is a part of the great soul of the world, a spark of the divine spirit. Its mysterious emergence dates back to the origins of organized matter. She had to cross all the kingdoms of nature, the whole scale of beings while developing through innumerable existences. Blind force in the mineral, individualized in the plant, polarized in the sensitivity and instinct of animals, it tends towards consciousness.

 The animic and spiritual element therefore exists in all the kingdoms, although only in the state of infinitesimal quantity in the lower kingdoms. »

« All the great religious currents draw their strength from revealed wisdom, from a corner of the veil lifted to enlighten men. And since they are men, the use they make of what is given to them ranges from best to worst.

 All that unites transcends life. All that opposes, differentiates unnecessarily goes against the current of what has been revealed.

 « As a child, religious services bored me deeply. I preferred to speak directly to God, in solitude.
 I felt intimately connected to a higher power, so I was very picky about how others behaved towards it. At the church, the adults celebrated a certain number of values ​​through their songs, but once outside, they did not put these principles into practice. It shocked me a lot. »

They prepare for painful tomorrows, and alas, prepare them for their children to whom they have failed to set an example. »

 In many religious traditions fasting, celibacy and mortification of the body have been instituted as effective means for spiritual unfoldment. The Angel did not attach any importance to it. When I asked if I should fast on Friday, the answer was negative:

  No! Let the measure - each day -

 It is important today that the human realizes that he can approach the afterlife, reconnect with his soul and develop his spirituality independently of any religion. »

The practice of a cult can bring a lot to a person (its pastors who can guide, its temples where one can meditate, its offices where group prayer elevates the soul...).

  « I do not affirm that the act of flesh is essential to any balanced life because there are beings whose path does not require this. I am simply saying that the soul which inflicts frustration on itself by obedience to a misunderstood principle is a self-blaming soul.

 In doing so, she develops an energy of dissatisfaction which is engraved on her subtle bodies and which will resurface in a later existence, perhaps in the form of a sharp impulse which is difficult to control.

 A being who thwarts the reality of his sexual force within him and who puts it on the index according to an ideal, certainly sows in his soul the seeds of a vast conflict.

 The only chastity that should matter to lovers of Love is the chastity of conscience; because it is the passport of the being who returns to his Essence.

The soul

_ _

  « The Catholic Church has always taught that man is made up of a (perishable) body and an (immortal) soul. "Do not be afraid, says the Gospel according to Saint Matthew, those who can kill the body, but cannot kill the soul." The Good News revealed by Jesus was the announcement of eternal life.

 "However, writes Father Martelet, when we want to talk about man these days, we are afraid to speak of his soul...". Why this fear? Because if we want to speak to an unbelieving world without risking remaining misunderstood or simply being ridiculed, we must speak to it in the language of an unbeliever. "Christians," said Louis Pauwels one day, "strive to make their message as flat as possible in order to be able to slip it under the door of the materialists".

 Also, Pope Paul VI made a point of expressing this vibrant profession of faith:

 "We believe in eternal life. We believe that the souls of all who die in the grace of Christ, whether they still have to be purified in purgatory or the moment they leave their body Jesus take them to paradise, all these souls are God's people in the afterlife." »
(Paul Misraki)

 Patricia Darré met a Catholic priest who also happens to be a medium.

 -  Did Jesus appear to many people after his death?

 - That's right. Similarly, King David appeared, after his death, to a woman who had demanded that he appear before her. It's written black on white in the Bible. This proves that existence beyond death is a reality. Not only do we continue to exist despite the dissolution of our carnal envelope, but we also have the possibility of communicating with the living.

 The Church recognizes the existence of mystics, but she fears that evil spirits manage to enter our world through clairvoyants (Cf. Dangerous contacts ).

Communication
with the deceased

_ _

  « We find in the scriptures a large number of references to communications which seem to relate to psi phenomena: messages delivered by angels, voices from heaven, dreams, visions. All this was considered at the time as so many divine messages.
 There are many Christians who are hostile to mediums but who believe in communicating with the dead. They see in it an intervention of the demon: «No! Bishop Pike! you weren't talking to your son! »

(While facing a heresy trial for his theological views, Bishop James Pike spoke about the messages he was receiving from his late son Jim)

 « But then a question arises. Is it possible to believe in the Resurrection of Christ while denying the conscious survival of the deceased? How can we believe in the Gospel which reports that Jesus communicated with his disciples after the Resurrection, if communication with the deceased is considered impossible?
 Saint Paul himself raised the question in Epistle 1.15 to the Corinthians: if the dead cannot rise, then Christ couldn't get out of his tomb. »

Reincarnation

   « In 325 AD, the Roman Emperor Constantine the Great erased all allusions to reincarnation from the New Testament. The Second Council of Constantinople, in 553 AD, endorsed this action and declared heretical any belief in reincarnation. Apparently, the Church Fathers feared that this concept would weaken their power. The early Church Fathers however, had accepted the idea. The early Gnostics (Clement of Alexandria, Origen, St. Jerome and many others) believed that they had already lived on earth and would return. »

Allison Dubois (medium) interviewed a Catholic priest who is also a medium.

- How do you reconcile the teaching you provide and what you know deep inside?

 - The Bible is subject to many interpretations, but most of my parapsychic knowledge agrees with it.
