Threshold of suffering

« Just as a seed must be planted in the darkness of decaying soil for it to sprout, so the germinating soul must be planted in matter. »
[ Franchezzo Farnèze & Pierre Jovanovic "The explorer of the beyond" ]

 A soul is a seed placed on Earth to germinate.
 It is therefore natural and essential that its envelope is torn.
 Otherwise, deprived of light, the soul atrophies.

What is suffering for? To nothing. Simply because it's not a goal, but a consequence. Not of our acts, because there is never punishment☆ Excerpt from the page: "Reincarnation":

karma

_ _

Karma is a Sanskrit word for fate. It is sometimes evoked during dramas that seem incomprehensible and unfair, but it can manifest itself in pleasant events. We can say that it tends to restore a balance.
There is no bad karma. Everything that happens to us is fundamentally good, because karma has only one goal: to awaken, to raise our consciousness.

 « It is great justice to warn man: you will reap what you have sown. No one inflicts punishment on you, no one condemns you, but you sew your own shroud according to the meaning you give to your life. For the responsible man there will be no "day of (self-) judgment", because it is from day to day that he judges himself. »

So don't envy anyone, because no one escapes this evolution of their innermost being. Because we've all come for this ; willy-nilly.

The first question that accompanies suffering is always "why??"

The incomprehension

✩ ✩

 « It is from this deep darkness,
 which is called fundamental ignorance,
 that the root of suffering is found. »
[ Dalai Lama ]

The turbulence of life is there to awaken.
We must understand this, and accept it.
Life is a test, a difficult test.
To view it otherwise is to sink into other torments.
.

  « The tragic events of existence, the emotional shocks, the physical traumas, the feeling of love, are tools that life uses to obtain this awakening of consciousness☆ Excerpt from the page: "The awakening" :

The unconscious go through existence in a semi-sleep. They ignore that difficulties constitute the reason for life.
Fundamentally just, these disturbing events are there to forge us, wake us up or consolidate us. Their intensity depends on the depth of our sleep and what we are able to bear.

Those who cling to their dreams, life lets them sleep.

  The task of the animal is centered on itself.
  He only enjoys what is his.
  Its air, its food, its child.

  It's (must be) just the opposite in humans.

In a state of non-awakening, we give our attention only to our person and to what revolves around it.

 « So many questions are swirling around in my head. All will find their answer, but the teaching that I will receive (with my Guide) is going to be tough.

A difficult circumstance is there to make us aware of something, to push us to awakening☆ Excerpt from the page: "The awakening" :

The unconscious, those who cross the existence in a semi-sleep, are unaware that the raison d'être of life are the difficulties, the trials.
Fundamentally just, never cruel or arbitrary, these disturbing events are there to forge us, awaken us or consolidate us. Their intensity depends on the depth of our sleep and what we are able to bear.

Those who cling to their dreams, life lets them sleep, but the awakening will be brutal.

[ Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross ]

We must beware, under pain of going astray and exacerbating our suffering, of associating a ordeal with a punishment or with bad luck. Even when you have a (just) feeling of backlash, it is not, it will never be, a punishment. Suffering does not punish us for our faults, it puts us in a position to become aware of them.

[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]

 « You want to know if, when you decide on a reincarnation, you have really chosen all the evil that is going to happen to you. But to decide on its future incarnation, if any, the soul already has the experience of one or more past incarnations. Meditation in the world of light shows him very clearly the lessons missed. Then, she chooses according to her criteria the time, the place, the family, the color of the skin, etc., then she reincarnates. »

 « I never established what was right or wrong, or what to do or what not to do. That would take away your greatest gift: the opportunity to do what you love and experience the results. To say something is wrong would be to deny you the opportunity to experience that truth. Some say I gave you free will, but these same people claim that if you don't obey Me, I will send you to hell.

Relying on God in this way is a resignation. Man must take charge of himself, face all the torments. God will only help him if he has really done what he can for it.

 The man and god

In the totem, the stone, the sun or the cross, man has always perceived - and accepted - "something" above him.
In the era of (high) technology, this feeling, imbued with naivety, makes you smile. Unable to truly explain the miracle of life, the scientific community prefers to deny it: man and everything around him appeared
"spontaneously"☆« To say that the complex systems you discover in the universe are due to chance takes even more faith than to believe in God. »
[ "To those who seek" ]

 « To believe that man is the result of a fortuitous combination of atoms is as absurd as to believe that by tapping at random on the keys of a typewriter, a monkey could compose a tragedy by Shakespeare. »
( Martin Luther King )
.

However, by thus rejecting any celestial notion, man finds himself – he, the supreme creature – in an impasse: if he falls, who can come to his aid?
The other men? he has always counted only on himself. God ? what god?

 « God, what can he do for the man who seeks his consolation in man? »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

Seeing people suffer hurts me.
But it is their blindness that must be tackled,

an understood suffering becomes bearable.

but to

Thanks to Saint-Exupéry, when I suffer, I think of the being who grows in me☆ Excerpt from the page: "Taking-back-control" :

Our double

 Our inner being

Deep within us lies our eternal being; the one who came to incarnate on Earth, the time of a lifetime; who sometimes gives us advice. This marvelous part of ourselves binds us to other men, and to God; just as in the soil, all the roots of all plants join in mother earth.

_ _

 « 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. »
[ Brigitte Quéro, "Spiritual Messages"]

. So, instead of complaining about myself, I say to myself: "I moult."

 « Humans cannot realize that the most beautiful transformations of the soul take place in pain! »
[Paqui, "Heavenly Talks"]

 « Thank God for all the tears, all the heartbreaks that strip your real being of the mask it wears. »
[ Celestial Messages from Pierre Monnier ]

 « Thwarted desires, unfulfilled desires and impulses, cruel separations, indifference, deceit, the casualness of those we love, refusals to repeated requests, vexations, all of this can, paradoxically, turn out to be very profitable, if the point of view is changed. »

 « Our immature nature is responsible for our unhappiness. This childishness conditions us. We focus on unimportant events, a lot of details which cause great suffering. It is essential to transform our gaze in order to take into account only what gives real meaning to our existence. »
[ Dalai Lama ]

 « Your financial situation makes you unhappy because your financial situation seems sad to you. You are what you think you are. When your thinking is negative, it becomes a vicious circle. You have to find a way to break the circle.

 The way to reduce the pain associated with experiences and events is to change the way you perceive them. Pain is the result of wrong thinking. It results from a judgment that you have passed on something. This judgment is based on your past experiences. It is the role of the Holy Spirit to inspire you with new ways of understanding. »

To tear oneself away from illness or despair

 « We have several bodies nested on each other. Energy bodies that do not differ by their size - like Russian dolls - but by their vibrational frequency.
 (...) If you change your emotional state, your state of mind, you will reach very tenuous bodies, very high in the vibration... and you can act very positively on these bodies.
 The healing would then reverberate from body to body, in a cascade, up to the physical body. »

We can give all sorts of qualifiers to life: sad, cruel, unjust, despicable... It does however only fulfill its role: that of kneading man.
By mixing situations, encounters, clashes, she forges it.

 « One of the difficulties of our passage here below is that we are all mixed up. Before we incarnated, we were in a dimension corresponding to our spiritual frequency and to those whose company we sought. However, we must all live together on the same planet, rub shoulders even with those who harm us, make our way through frequencies of all kinds. »

 Is the truth hidden?

 « Life is not a school. Your soul already knows everything, but it wants to experience it. Life is an opportunity for you to know experientially what you already know conceptually. To do this, you must remember what you already know and then put it into practice.

 (...) Being is only achieved through experience.

 Evolution is such: to know, to experience, to be.

 (...) By demonstrating what you already know, you will surpass yourself and create yourself again, through your experience. Thus you will sanctify life.

And for your experience to be total, it was necessary that you release, deny, forget, your bond with Me. »

[Inspired message to Neale Walsch]

 « But you know dad, what I just told you, everyone knows. Everyone already knows it intuitively, it's in us.
 But we constantly lie to ourselves. We deceive, without realizing it, our deep nature, which is our true self
☆ 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. »

 However, this should not be made an absolute rule. Instinctive tendencies are a more certain clue. »
[Message collected by Allan Kardec]

Thus a man speaks of his past life to a medium:

 « To erase my previous faults, I had to undergo these ordeals which I voluntarily accepted. I drew from the firmness of my resolutions the strength to bear them without a murmur. I bless them today, these trials. I can now contemplate the path travelled.

 O you who have made me suffer on earth, who have been harsh and malevolent, who have humiliated me and made me bitter, whose bad faith has often reduced me to privations, not only do I forgive you, but I thank you. By wanting to hurt me, you had no idea that you would do me so much good. You have provided me with the opportunity to return good for evil. God has placed you in my path to ordeal my patience. »

(…) Then he exposes his impressions some time after his awakening in the afterlife:

 « I had not yet freed myself from earthly ideas; the memory of what I had endured came back to me from time to time, as if to make me better appreciate my new situation. I had suffered bodily, but above all morally; I had been the target of malevolence, of those thousand perplexities more painful perhaps than real misfortunes, because they cause perpetual anxiety. Their impression was not yet completely erased, I still seemed to hear certain unpleasant voices. I groped myself, so to speak, to make sure that I was not the plaything of a dream; and when I had become certain that it was all over, it seemed to me that an enormous weight had been lifted from me.

 Oh ! If all men understood the future life, what strength, what courage would this conviction not give them in adversity! »

It is only when one is dissatisfied with life that awakening☆ Excerpt from the page: "The awakening" :

The unconscious, those who go through existence in a semi-sleep, are unaware that life is just that: hardships.
These trials that are there to wake us up or strengthen us are never cruel or arbitrary, they are just and useful; their intensity depends on the depth of our sleep and what we are able to bear.

Those who cling to their dreams, life lets them sleep, but the awakening will be brutal.

What is awakening?

  The task of the animal is centered on itself.
  He only enjoys what is his.
  Its air, its food, its child.

  It's (must be) just the opposite in humans.
 [ Dialogues with the Angel ]

In a state of non-awakening, we give our attention only to our person and to what revolves around it.

« The world is in the state it is in because it is full of sleepwalkers. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'The paths of wisdom' ]

« The men who are still sleeping each live in a different world; those who have awakened all live in the same world. »

 So suffering is salvation?

It is the means, not the end (see "The negative suffering" below )

To understand the meaning of life
is to give yourself a chance to elevate your spirit in peace or joy rather than in pain.

 « The law of compensation neither punishes nor rewards. It is man himself who puts it into action, by creating the positive or negative conditions.

 Karmic effects☆ Excerpt from the page: "Reincarnation" :

karma

Karma is a Sanskrit word for fate. It is sometimes evoked during dramas that seem incomprehensible and unfair, but it can manifest itself in pleasant events. We can say that it tends to restore a balance.
There is no bad karma. Everything that happens to us is fundamentally good, because karma has only one goal: to awaken, to raise our consciousness.

 Do not struggle, nor try to forget

☆ Pain severe enough to suspend our lives or constant anguish should not be ignored or circumvented.
It has a meaning, and instead of complaining, let's question ourselves, rethink the meaning of our course, of our life, let's consider another Way.
☆ Excerpt from the page: "Taking-back-control" :

How to Engage in the Path

First give up the old; it's not the easiest

  You enter the road,
  you carry a golden ball, heavy.
  You carry it – it's heavy –
  but you carry it all the same.
  You arrive at the border of a new country,
  where no one believes in gold.
  What's left? – Only its weight.
  What should you do with it, my servant?
  Open your hand and the ball will roll down.
  Dropping the weight isn't difficult,
  but your fingers are still tense from the golden ball.

  How can you receive the new ball
  if you cling to the old one?

  We know very well how difficult it is for you to let go of the weight,
  because you are used to it.
  He who wears the gold does not feel its weight so much he believes in it.
  that the faith [in these things]withdraws from it, only the weight remains.
[ "Dialogues with the Angel" ]

Flatteries, success, pleasures, all those earthly things that we care about, deprive us of the essential.
 « And I can, from floor to floor, make you communicate with increasingly vast treasures.

 « When you feel overwhelmed, dejected, the first thing to do is to tell yourself that this state will not last.
 For a moment, take refuge somewhere within yourself, as if going into hibernation, and stay there until you find the breath of life again.

 And what I say to you, I also say to myself. And it is precisely because I have had these experiences millions of times that I can tell you about them to help you. Do you believe that I could speak to you as I do if I had not also experienced great trials? »
( Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, "The duty to be HAPPY")

 « The anxiety and anguish that Buddha came to cure 2500 years ago are today very official illnesses. Tranquillizers are selling well and anything that can help people “take their worries away” is great value. Every human being dreams of perfect happiness and of a life where there would be nothing but joys. In the meantime, he seeks pleasant emotions and refuses painful emotions.

 Because I don't want to accept the event, the bad news and be one with it, the emotion is born. Emotion is not produced by the fact itself, however "dramatic" it may be, but by the refusal of the fact, the coexistence of yes and no.

 All Eastern doctrines teach how to free oneself from suffering. Suffering always comes from denial of facts. I would like this; this does not happen. I refuse the fact that this is not happening and I suffer. »

 The five phases

By dint of benevolent observation, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross has noted the phases that a being goes through during a terrible ordeal.

First there is the shock. The daze. Misunderstanding accompanies collapse.

Then comes anger. Against God, life, the rest of the world. This anger, we must not try to contain it. On the contrary. You have to express it: shout, howl your pain; tap on something. Like tears, it helps evacuate the suffocating excess.

Then comes depression, collapse. Again, you have to let it go, but there, without struggling. This period, too, is unavoidable.

Then finally, only then, gently, comes appeasement.

_ _

Here is how Dr. Kubler-Ross describes these phases:

 « 1 / The shock. You will lose an eye, probably even both. Reaction of refusal, blockage: « No, not me! ». They "bury their heads in the sand" or go from one doctor to another.

 It is often in the solitude and silence of the night that the patient gives up refusing reality. But often he resumes his attitude of denial during the day. It is very important not to demolish this refusal, to respect its defenses.

2 / « Why me? ». The patient becomes disagreeable, makes life difficult for everyone around him, looks for a culprit. His mother, the doctor, God, … His anger is a good thing, you have to let it pass and even encourage it. In fact, he is not angry with you, but with what you represent. You arrive with the image of life, health, spirit, all that he is losing. The more drive and energy you have ("Come on, don't worry!", which the patient translates as "Stop ruining our lives with your lamentations"), the more you irritate him.

 Sometimes you have to help them express their anger (which often only takes five minutes), get them to say out loud: « Why is this happening to me? » - and you don't have to answer this question, encourage them to shout. They will then stop constantly ringing the nurse.
To exteriorize the deep depressions, Dr. Ross has installed a mattress on the floor in a room, and encourages the person distraught with suffering, to hit it with all his might with a stick.

3 / « Why now? » . The patient seems at peace, but it's a truce. There comes a period of haggling. « Couldn't we wait until my children get married, or have finished their schooling, or… » The promises these patients make, they rarely keep. Almost all patients make these requests for God, even when they have thought little of Him before.

4 / The arms fall. Silent grief, silence. The preparatory depression which follows the depression of reaction.

 Do not try to stop their tears, on the contrary tell them: « It is permissible for a man to cry. » They are then able to go through this stage of grief more quickly and reach the final stage, that of acceptance.

5 / The miracle of the 5th stage can finally occur: the miracle of the blind man. For those who see, the serenity of the blind is something incomprehensible. An incredible tranquility has settled. »
[Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, "Living with Death and the Dying"]

 « The great metamorphoses of the soul come after tribulations, when silence begins to enter you. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « This stage of is acceptance perhaps the most difficult to describe. The patient no longer wants visitors, no longer wants to talk to anyone, has usually put his affairs in order, no longer places hope in treatments and no longer expects his life to be prolonged. The stage of acceptance does not necessarily mean that it is close to the end. It is simply reached when, having looked their finitude in the face, people live another quality of life, with other values, learn to enjoy each day given to them, without worrying about what will happen tomorrow. Acceptance is a feeling of victory, of peace, of sincere submission to what cannot be changed. Rather, resignation is a feeling of defeat, of bitterness of "what's the point?", from "I am tired of struggling". I would say that 80% of patients in asylums are at this stage of resignation.

 Of course, all this is schematic. In reality, there are never such clear cuts. The different phases overlap, some repeating two or three times. There are stutters of refusal, risings of anger.

 The death :

 The atmosphere of modern cities tends to block metamorphosis at its first stage: let's refuse death! Let's not look at it, let's sing, let's dance, live with our eyes on the rear view mirror: Genesis, big bang, evolution, history, growth...

 The 4th phase is uneventful, the individual sinks. The problem is that often the people around him, stuck in phase 1, prevent him from going through his 4th phase properly. They are there, stuck to him, desperately trying to get him out of his apathy. However, he has to get used to the idea of what awaits him! To prepare himself psychologically to give up everything. This is not self-evident !

 The anguish of the loved ones, especially when it is not expressed, slows down the dying person in his natural slide, unconsciously prevents him from " living his own mourning " and from approaching the 5th phase. The serene acceptance of the great departure must be reciprocal. From heart to heart, the living must let the dying person go. »

 « Death is part of life, it is important to teach it to children very early on. If we do this, these children will not have to go through the different stages described above later. »
[Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, "Living with Death and the Dying"]

 « Acceptance, when by “miracle” it occurs, by the formidable release of energy that it can cause, transforms the dying person into a true “teacher of life” and sometimes even leads to a real and very paradoxical remission. »

Suffering, when prolonged,
is similar to maceration.

but on his attitude towards it.

The negative suffering


  « Suffering is a 'trial' in the etymological sense of the word. When it is accepted, it dematerializes, purifies. You can suffer infinitely, and all your life, without getting closer to Heaven.
 Only suffering accepted elevates. »
[ Celestial Messages from Pierre Monnier ]

 « Evil does not come from suffering or fear, but from the refusal of suffering and fear. A circumstance is perceived as "bad", so it is not accepted, which gives rise to a negative, painful emotion in us. »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'Yoga and spirituality' ]

 « Combat sterile suffering, confined to itself. Every trial is a path that opens.

 [...] There are two kinds of grief: purifying grief and demoralizing grief, which bears no fruit. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « There are sufferings that remain useless. »
[ Celestial Messages from Pierre Monnier ]

 « Your guardian angel rejoices in the evils which have the effect of shortening your time of trial. But he grieves when you do not bear them with resignation; because these evils are then without result for you: you are like the patient who rejects the bitter drink which must cure him.

 Know well that what seems evil to you is not always evil; often a good must come out of it which will be greater than the bad, and this is what you do not understand, because you only think of the present moment or of your person. »

« You can't stop the waves,

  « Just as Moses was unable to set foot in the Promised Land, Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated and died heartbroken because the nation he wanted to unite had divided. The Apostle Paul's fondest dream was to go to Spain and bring the Gospel there. He never made it to Spain. He ended up in a Roman prison cell.

 What makes me happy is that I can hear this voice telling me: "Maybe you won't make it today, nor tomorrow, but it's good that this thought is in your heart . It's good that you try. You may not see it. The dream may not come true, but it's good that you have the desire to make it a reality." »

Karma is a Sanskrit word for fate. It is sometimes evoked during dramas that seem incomprehensible and unfair, but it can manifest itself in pleasant events. We can say that it tends to restore a balance.

 Fixing your attention on the pain,
 accentuates it

One day, having pinched myself, I wanted to evacuate the black ball that appeared at the end of my finger. I proceeded to gently slice the skin with a razor blade. The more I concentrated on the operation, the more the pain worsened. But I continued, marveling at the thickness of the skin. When, finally, the little drop of blood spurted out, I was sweating!

I learned from this lesson that focusing on pain multiplies it.

 « Very often the one who suffers is either absorbed by his physical pain, or identified with his moral pain. There comes a time when nothing else exists but that. But energy follows thought☆ Excerpt from the page: "The thought" :

 « This is very important: know that thought can influence matter.  The course of events may be influenced by the course of your thoughts.

[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]
, there then follows a tension which cannot resolve itself and which prolongs this suffering. »
[ Maguy Lebrun ]

 « Pain tries to be self-sufficient, pushes to suppress everything that is not pain. A being who really suffers does not want to do anything but suffer; he subordinates everything to his sadness. The weak will remain prostrate in this state.

 (...) Usually in physical illness the panicked body absorbs the mind. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Suffering is an integral part of our lives. It is inseparable from it, so we must accept this fact and transform our attitude towards it. Opposing it only increases it. Stopping rebelling against it is the first step; then we can face it. The night becomes endless when sleep escapes us and we add our anxiety to it.

 If some suffering is impossible to overcome, it is all the more important to transform our state of mind vis-à-vis it. Assuming it makes it possible not to add unnecessary weight to this pain. »

  « You don't realize how important a smile is. It's the soul that rejoices, that pierces the envelope to place a kiss on the soul of the other. »(A Guide)

 Your smile is your task. Everything else is superfluous.
 For everything there is an explanation. For joy there is none.
 What is sap for the plant is joy of living for man.
 Without joie de vivre – dryness.
 Always be full of joy of living!
 It really depends on you.

 The sap comes from below, the joy of living too. That's your business.

 The smile is the bridge. Not the grin, nor the laughter. Smile.
 Laughter is the opposite of crying. The smile has no opposite.
 Don't just smile when you're in a good mood!
 Your smile is a creative smile!
 There is no more: I am happy – I smile, I am sad – I cry.
  The child that you are, you raise it badly.

  I LIVE IN THE SMILE.
 I can't cry, because there's nothing to cry about.
 We must not cry over the loss.
 Wickedness, terror, darkness, your name is missing.
 Not lack of water, but lack of fire
☆ The Angel often speaks of the inner fire (love, fervor, faith...), which he opposes to lukewarmness:

 « What makes a room dark?
  The lamp that does not burn. The lamp is responsible. »

 « If Heaven burns within you – the old is consumed.
  If The Light burns within you,
  darkness can do nothing against you. »

 « Fire only hurts you where you need to change. »

 « Your task: to give fire. Always transmit the fire! »

 You who want to help, the key to your teaching is a smile.
 Try!
 If your proteges reach the inner smile,
 their way of moving will change.

 God gives through you. The hand smiles, too. Everything smiles.

 If there is peace in you, joy is not far away.
 These feelings ( tears )separate you from me.
 At this level I cannot go down.
-- another day --
(joyful greeting)

 - Today it is good to be here.
(bright smile)

I often felt how difficult it was for my Master to come down and stay in our overly dense atmosphere. Today my joy makes things easier.
It points to the glass of water.

 - What fire does for you, water does for me. Fire is joyful - water is heavy.

 I understand that the more I burn with joy, the more I will be able to approach my Angel; on the other hand the fire of the Angel must be attenuated by water so that he can approach me.

 One day when we learned beyond any possible doubt of the existence of the gas chambers, we knew despair. We were literally thrown down and in such a depression that it was almost impossible for the Angels to reach us. Nevertheless the sternest, the most inaccessible of them - the Angel of Hanna - joined us in this abyss and begged us to rise. »
[ "Dialogues with the Angel" ]

 « Everyone knows that suffering is a path that leads to God. Judaism is a reminder that joy leads to God, as mitzvah ( good deed) and holy spirit are incompatible with grief or despair.

 The joy of doing good is one of the highest experiences. »
(Abraham Heschel, 'God in Search of Man')

 « The man who looks at himself can only sink into melancholy, but as soon as he opens his eyes to the creation around him, he will know joy. »
[Elie Wiesel, 'Hasidic Celebration']

 « To the isolated, empty Jew, the Rebbe said: " Your experience is not useless, it is inserted into a whole that takes it into account; know that eternity is found in every moment, that every table can become an altar and every man a high priest; know that more than one way leads to God, but the surest passes through joy and not through tears; know that God does not like pain and sadness; know that the way to God passes through man. The child who sleeps, the mother who caresses him, the old man who listens to the sound of the trees: to each one God is close, in each one God is present". »

[Paqui, "Heavenly Talks"]

 « The withdrawal into oneself is an instinctive reflex. It's a convenient way to resist aggression, but one that often leads to self-pity. »
[ Michèle Decker, "Life on the Other Side" ]

 « When you withdraw into yourself, the seed of your soul, which needs light, cannot grow.
 Accept all the things that happen to you as a present, as part of your learning. »
[ R. Altea, "A long ladder to the sky" ]

 « When we feel our hearts open to ease the pain or share the joy of someone else, we should know that this little crack in our breastplate is enough to release the angel that we have long kept within us in the darkness☆ 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. »

Before learning, it would be necessary to unlearn, to empty oneself of one's certainties. It takes a lot of humility.

« If anyone wants to come with me,
let him stop thinking about himself and carry his cross. »

( Matthew 16.24 )

Forget yourself...

Divert your suffering
Shift your attention
Transcend his suffering

 Divert your suffering

If you suffer a lot or/and for a long time, you are a teacher for those who are thrown into distress. Bring them your testimony, with sincerity, offer them a little of your time. For example, by participating in this site or by volunteering (Cf. "To the encounter with the other"). There is no shortage of associations. You would find a friendly welcome there and what a wonderful meetings opportunity! Up to you to decide when and how much time you can devote to it; trying it won't commit you to anything.

You will see, there's no better way to take your mind off your pain.

 Shift your attention

 « Sister Emmanuelle, said the superior to me one day, currently, you only see your problem. It's normal. But share more of other people's problems, and yours will lose its monopoly. Open your heart to the hurt of others, and your wound will heal »

 « By loving others, your own tears will miraculously heal. »
[ Sylvie Lorain-Berger, "The messengers from beyond" ]

 Transcend his suffering

 « Any contradiction without solution, any irreparable dispute, obliges you to grow to absorb it.
 In your roots you take the earth and its flints and its humus, and you build a cedar.
 If you want to grow, wear yourself out against your disputes.

 From there comes that the suffering increases you, when you accept it. »
[ Saint-Exupéry ]

 « When a being can no longer bear the weight of his pain, he tries to deceive it, to distract himself from it.
 Do not ask for the suppression of your pain, only ask for the grace to transform it. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Suffering, this incommunicable personal trial, must be purifying. It must not be quenched, but transmuted from lead into gold. »
[ Arnaud Gourvennec, celestial messages ]

 « You must understand that your suffering must be sublimated and experienced as a creative ordeal of your being☆ Excerpt from the page: "Taking-back-control" :

[ Arnaud Gourvennec, celestial messages ]

  « There is a challenge in life. If people looked at their problems as a challenge meant to make them grow, that would change things a lot. Look at my house. My windows are being shot, my tires are punctured every time I go to the airport, I find KKK crosses since I adopted twenty babies with AIDS. Before that my neighbors were charming...

 I have to go through this to grow again. I could have become negative and embittered, and said " to hell with them all " and moved to the Riviera and lived in luxury. »
[ Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross ]

In this example experienced by a great lady, there is a great lesson: you must not avoid a problem, you must absorb it, sublimate it.

 « I tell you: you only have the right to avoid an effort in the name of another effort, because you have to grow. »
[ Saint-Exupéry ]

 « I find her one morning with a black face, bloody eyes, her body collapsed on the ground. She ends up confessing. Khayri, after crushing her with blows, threw her against the door made of old sharp metal. I'm beside myself: “It can't go on, Fauzeya, let's take the children and go to your parents!” A categorical no: “Lê, lê”. Through the blood that covers her eyes, she casts a look of love on her four little ones: “Do you see, they adore their father, they will suffer far from him!”  She adds: “It is I who must suffer!” She grabs Teresa, the youngest child, and cradles her, smiling softly at her. Peace returns to his heart.
 I look at her, unable to speak. His swollen face radiates tenderness. He is as if transfigured by the joy of loving. It seems natural to her to suffer so that her children do not suffer. She's decentralized all from itself. Its source is in them, she draws there its reason for living, its serenity and its joy.
 You make me question myself, Fauzeya. Have I ever said, "It is I who must suffer so that others are happy?" 
 - Fauzeya, teach me to love. »

The caterpillar does not understand what is going on inside it.
She suffers, but waits patiently
otherwise the chrysalis would tear.

✩ ✩

Dominate the mind

Turning away from the self
The seasons of the soul
Develop your patience
Develop the strength of your mind
Make peace within yourself

 Turning away from the self

 « You are in danger if you allow grief, anxiety, discouragement, fear to overwhelm you☆ Excerpt from the page: "Despair, depression" :

Depression: danger


A problem is crushing us, we see no way out of it.

So we give up the fight.You don't have to.

Letting the soul sink represents an unsuspected danger:
 by lowering our vibrations in this way, our defenses fall, and the spirits of the lower astral are attracted and invade the mind.
Not necessarily the worst, but certainly the most depressed; those who inspire the worst resolutions.

   ☞ Wandering Spirits

     ☞ Attenuation
. They isolate you. You position yourself as a victim, you no longer worry about yourself, you become depressed. »
[ Dalai Lama ]

 « Men make themselves unhappy not by the things that happen, but by the way they see things that happen. »
(Epictetus)

 « What happens only has the importance that we give to it. »
(Message collected by A. Givaudan)

 « It is in depression that we are most self-centered. Nothing can undermine our natural strength and health more than prolonged neurasthenia. But when we apply ourselves to forgetting our ego and focusing on the needs of others, the healing takes place. »
[Betty J. Eadie, "In the Arms of Light"]

 « Lay down your burden for a moment, think of the future, the great Future, the only one that really matters, the future of your soul. Prepare it without thinking about the fall or winter of your life. »
[Paqui, "Heavenly Talks"]

It is often the future, near or far, for us or for those we love that worries us. However, the present, immediate moment is in itself rarely unbearable.
Why are children carefree? because only the immediate preoccupies him.

 ☞   The importance of the present moment

 The seasons of the soul

 « Don't grieve when nothing sings within you, for the soul has its cycles of silence. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « The road to eternity is long. Fervor is a stream of sunshine in the depths of being, it is a reverberation from beyond. As soon as this light ceases to illuminate you, the taste for life is extinguished within you. Accept without rebelling the ordeal of dull days.

 There are dreary days, without exit, deprived of God, of faith, of grace. Around you everything is collapsing, nothing seems to want to succeed. In these moments of abandonment one must withdraw into oneself. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « These are swooning and would have you believe that they are burning night and day. But they lie.

 The poet lies who speaks to you day and night of the intoxication of poetry. He sometimes suffers from a stomachache and mocks all poems.

 Lies the lover who claims to you that night and day he is consumed by thoughts of his beloved. A flea distracts him, for it bites. Or mere boredom, and he yawns.

 The saint lies who professes to you that night and day he beholds God. God withdraws from him at times, like the sea. And there he is, drier than a pebble beach. »
[ Saint-Exupéry ]

 Develop your patience

 « The ability to remain steadfast, whatever the circumstances, is a strength. »

 « Time, Space and Patience are the means by which Man, as a limited spirit, becomes aware of the Infinite.

 Patience does not simply mean waiting, but it is the attitude of those who bring their nature into accord with the laws of Nature. »

 « The test, in any case, will end as soon as you have internally removed from it what is necessary for your evolution. Be patient, the ordeal will pass. »
[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]

 « Inner peace is the pivot that determines our behavior. »
[ Dalai Lama ]

. Most men exclude expectation from their existence and that is their misfortune. »
[Elie Wiesel, 'Hasidic Celebration']

 « Don't try to fight with bad currents.
 Fold up your sails and wait. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « You have to be able, when a problem arises, to cultivate an expectation made of calm, and to say to yourself with resignation: I must wait until, from the superior worlds, like a ray of light, the expected answer. »
[ Rudolf Steiner ]

 Develop the strength of your mind

« As violent as the storm is,
if I break down, it's because I'm not strong enough. »
[ "To those who seek" ]

 « Suffering is always a sign of improvement. It breaks or strengthens. »
[ Sylvie Lorain-Berger, "The messengers from beyond" ]

 « My neighbor to the east, when he was paralyzed and one side of him turned cold and dead, and he carried with him that Siamese brother who no longer laughed, he lost none of his dignity; much better, he succeeds in this apprenticeship. To those who congratulated him on this he replied that he who reigns, if he does not reign first over his own body, is only a usurper. There is no downfall for me, but no doubt a marvelous joy, to free myself a little better today! »

[ Maguy Lebrun ]

 « If you have Inner Peace, nothing will be able to disturb your existence. If you are devoid of it, merely having a good position will not only fail to bring you happiness but may become a source of anxiety. The stability inherent in inner peace is the true source of Happiness. »
[ Dalai Lama ]

  If there is peace in you,
  joy is not far away.
[ "Dialogues with the Angel" ]

 « At any time, each of us can find wonderful inner peace through our ability to let go.

 (...) Making comparisons is probably the best way to be unhappy. Whatever our situation. »
[ Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross ]

 « We are born, it is to suffer; we live, it is to suffer; we love, it is to suffer; one works, it is to suffer.

 We climb what we will not cross, we begin what we will not complete, we believe what we will not prove, we build what we will not inhabit; we plant shade for others. No enjoyment, and for no one. Tyranny is heavy on tyrants; goodness is bitter to the good. Ingratitude, what a chalice! Nothing fits us; one never completely enters the place where one is; one does not recognize his mold in any of the hollows of life; there's always too much or too little. Elsewhere always seems preferable to here; our greatest plenitudes are emptiness. Only one serenity is possible, that of consciousness. Everything else is cloudy. »

what is suffocating us!

Let's walk! Let's breathe!

 Let's walk! Let's breathe!

 « Walk in the deserted paths, walk in the woods, in the countryside, walk along the banks of the rivers. Always alone. Walk to find yourself. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 Take the time to go out, to go for a short walk in a quiet place.

 Otherwise, at any time, follow this advice:

Breathe as you say to yourself:
"Benevolent forces of nature, enter me, inspire me, protect me."
 (the sentence is deliberately long, allowing you to breathe in deeply)

then exhale, with mouth wide open, with the conviction to chase away dark thoughts, discouraging, that are invading, oppressing you.

The yawn that each breath triggers, helps release your tension.

 « The first step in learning to love life is to learn to taste it through the flow of air that enters the lungs. It is a thousand times more than a combination of gases which comes to regenerate your cells; it is the very source of Love. How could you receive this Love if you do not open the door of your home? »
(Message received by D. Meurois and A. Givaudan,
'By the spirit of the Sun')
 magnifying glassAuthorContributions by Anne Givaudan on the theme of:

The WAY , LOVE , LIFE , HEALTH or DEATH

 « Meditation helps to hear the messages of the angels, but it is not the only way. By connecting with nature, you slow down your emotions and thoughts. Make a habit of appreciating every bit of nature – a cloud, a tree, the chirping of a bird – you will experience a wonderful relief. Spend time in nature. A hike, a snack in a park or at the edge of a stream and you re-establish your links with Mother Nature and your guardian angels.

 Another way is to take two or three deep breaths, hold your breath for five to ten seconds, and then exhale slowly. Imagine yourself inspiring relaxation, joy, peace. Exhale stress, tension and worries. The spirit world communicates with us through our breath. Breathing (deeply) is in essence, the way to call Heaven. »
[Doreen Virtue, "Communicating with Angels"]

 « Too often you live without taking care of your soul. Feeling abandoned, she hides in the depths of being. It takes a melodious existence for it to mingle with life.
 When you make silence within you and walk on paths filled with sunshine, she comes out and you are in her company.
 The enchantment is then sudden, you are no longer alone. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 « Nature is a contact, a true thread that can connect to sources in the background.

 Your daydreams in nature can reach a rare quality. Is it not from the branch of a tree that a bird flies away?
 (...) Take refuge in nature. Alone, walk on bare ground. Flee the cities where the earth is imprisoned under the asphalt. Look for the alleys, the small roads, you will recharge yourself, without knowing it, with pure elements. Walk to find yourself. »
[Celestial message from Roland de Jouvenel]

 Scream! The cry evacuates the anguish

Anxiety attacks look like tantrums. Neither one should be suffocated. So if you can, shout!

That has to "come out"
To exteriorize the deep depressions, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross had installed a mattress on the floor in a room, and encouraged the person distraught with suffering, to hit it with all his might with a stick.

 « We must encourage them to shout! », she added.

 The laugh too!

 Look for films that entertain or relax, that don't take themselves too seriously.

 ☞ Let's see if you know how to laugh...

 Avoid nostalgic music

 Avoid sad, nostalgic music.
 « My guides told me that certain types of music can trigger negative emotions. »
[Betty J. Eadie, "In the Arms of Light"]

 Let's try this...

Moonlight Shadow

(The Shadows)


 ...or this wonderful sleigh ride that Mozart left us

 Flee the information!

 It has been scientifically proven that laughter feels good. So will you be surprised if, in the opposite way, sinister information poured out daily generates or maintains sadness?
 « If you feel exhausted or irritable, you may be imbued with darkness. You have likely identified with someone's fears and worries, and thus absorbed their dark energies by becoming one with them through your empathy. »
[Doreen Virtue, "Communicating with Angels"]

Of course we have to keep ourselves informed, but

 « A Hindu text concurs with what the Bible says: “It is a sin to worry about the fate of those for whom you can do nothing." »
[ Arnaud Desjardins, 'Yoga and spirituality' ]

 « New generations must constantly face bad news, constantly face violence. They are immersed intensively and continuously in fear and tension. This is the first time in human history that a phenomenon of such magnitude has occurred.

 The time spent in front of television continues to increase, its power is real, its impact significant. They modify our behavior, our tastes and probably our thinking.

 The power of the media is all the more important because it also addresses the unconscious. »

This important message from the Dalai Lama is confirmed by a mediumistic contact with Edgar Cayce, 50 years after his death:

 « There is no longer any silence in the houses. Either the radio, or the stereo, or the TV works, and often all three at the same time. In a single day, all the horrors committed in the world will have been transported into your homes, with great cries and noise.

 (...) I must explain to you what causes this fear of life in young people. Firstly, the parents' soul is itself distraught, off-centered and the child feels this unhealthy and continuous feverishness. The parents' souls are nourished, among other things, by a constantly on television which conveys all the violence of the planet in selected images, accompanied by appropriate music. »

Professor Kenneth Ring cites the typical patient returning from NDE :

 « What shocks him the most? the permanent display of violence, physical or verbal.
 (...) TV programs have the effect on him of a “vomit flow” in his own house. On the heads of his children! »

Love, perfect fairness, beauty, infinite sweetness exist...on the higher vibrational plane.
Our soul knows it, feels it. That's why she yearns for it, especially when life on earth weighs on her.

✩ ✩

 « Man occupies the place assigned to him on the cosmic plane, and progresses towards a goal which he will understand only when realized. »
[ R. Bernard, Grand Master of the Rose Croix ]

 « My life, despite all these painful and distressing memories, I wouldn't change a thing. Because I know they made me who I am today.

 Each life, regardless of its length, is a divine gift, given to us for a purpose: to improve the soul, because the soul is only there to learn and develop. »
[ R. Altea, "A long ladder to the sky" ]


 « May each obstacle, each sadness, each difficulty be an opportunity for you to grow even more, to move towards more love. »
[ Brigitte Quéro, "Spiritual Messages" ]

 « Strengthen in you the affinities with the Universal, and your “demons” will weaken by themselves. Troubles, problems, blows will not be spared you, paradise is not of this world. But deep inside you will carry the germ of it. You will receive support, consolation, love, then you can face everything.
 We cash in easily when we know, we suffer when we don't understand. Hits do not weaken the Winner. »
[ "To those who seek" ]

 « What matters to your soul is only who you are while you do, no matter what. »
[Inspired message to Neale Walsch]


 - Bah ! Why try to understand why we suffer?

 - Understanding does not alleviate the ordeal

 - You see...

 “But that makes it bearable. Because you ward off the poisonous flies that your wound attracts.

 - What flies?

 - Your thoughts. They whisper to you that others are happy... that only luck, strength, cunning govern the world... And it's better to have fun when you can.
 ... So, your suffering becomes unbearable.

 - Because life has a meaning?

 - Yes. Presenting the soul with as many experiences as possible.

 “If the grace is given to you to understand that difficulties forge the soul, then you can endure injustice, betrayal, mourning... Because you know that your only, your true life is elsewhere; and that those who harm you or take advantage of you, deny you love or friendship, are an integral part of your trials.

 - They help me, what!

 - In the long term, yes.

 - And what is death for?

 - It's a step. The soul rests there, sees the path traveled... and the one that remains to be done. When she feels ready, she takes to the road again.
