Listen to Them

"Abraham replied: They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them." Jesus (Luke, 16:29)

The response given by Abraham in the parable to the wealthy man is still a valuable teaching for our daily life on the ordinary path.

Innumerable people approach the fountains of spiritual revelation, but have not achieved their liberation from their selfish ties in a way that will allow them to see and to listen, as needed, for their essential interests.

It has been precisely a century since the establishment of a more extensive interchange between the two planes through the great movement of the revived Christianity; notwithstanding, there are students who contemplate the Heavens unhappily distressed over not having received a personal message directly from a father or a son in their human experience. Some erroneously deviate from the path, alleging such motives. To these, the phenomenon and revelation in Evangelical Spiritism are simply lies as they have not received anything from relatives that had passed away, during consecutive years of observation.

That is nothing but a mere contradiction.

Who can guarantee the perpetuity of those fragile threads in the terrestrial ties?

The animal impulse has limits.

Let no one justify, his own blindness due to the dissatisfaction of a personal whim.

The world has been replete with messages and emissaries for thousands of years. Notwithstanding, the great problem does not lie in demanding the truth and attending the exclusive circle of each person, but rather, in the consideration by each individual with regards to the forward march ahead in his own valor toward the direction of the eternal realities.
