Wo du dich befindest

In seinem Entwicklungsprozess befindet sich der Mensch gerade dort, wo die Voraussetzungen für sein inneres Wachsen am günstigsten sind.
An den Zufall zu glauben widerspiegelt einen beschränkten Begriff von Gottes Gesetzen.
Niemand ist am falschen Ort, ausser wenn aus eigenem Schwachsinn jemand sich dorthin festsetzt. Einige Menschen kommen zum Ort zurück, wo sie ihre Übergriffe ausgeübt haben, andere gehen zu den Gemeinden, wo sie ihren Fortschritt und den der andern fördern können. Andere noch beginnen ihre Erfahrung in fremden Gegenden, damit ihr Bewusstsein reifen kann, und sie ihre Brüderlichkeit entfalten können. Alle aber wachsen unter Umständen und Gelegenheiten, die ihre Lehre begünstigen, auch wenn diese als hart oder streng empfunden wird.

Der Weg zum Licht wird durch grosse Anstrengung und ständiges Beharren im Guten gefunden. Es ist möglich, dass der freché oder dir schlecht gesinnte Verwandte dein ehemaliges Opfer war, der nun aus Unwissenheit sich in deinen Folterknecht verwandelt hat. Der geliebte Freund, aus dem ein Widersacher wird, der dein Herz mit Stacheln durchbohrt, hat schon andere Erfahrungen bei dir gesammelt, als du ihm das Vertrauen missbraucht hast.

Der verfolgungssüchtige Chef, der unerbittliche Meister, der widerspenstige Helfer sind deine Gelegenheiten, dich in Geduld und Ausgeglichenheit zu üben. Sie alle stehen in deinem Pflichtenheft. ...>>

Story: Gospel at Home

Today was going to be a different day for Andre and Philip. Their mom was called Adriana; she decided to explain the importance of the Gospel at Home practice to her children:

- Did you know that our house has an alarm to protect us against robbery? In order to protect our home from the bad influence from spirits who want to inspire negative thoughts, as well as pay close attention to our thoughts and actions, we practice the Gospel at Home every week.

She also said this is the time when the family members unite together to pray and study Jesus’ teachings. The main purpose of these gatherings is to awake and strengthen sentiments of fellowship in the family and among our friends. It should be done at a chosen day and time during the week when as many members of the family as possible can be present. This day and time should be kept the same every week, because the spiritual benefactors also have a very busy schedule in the Spiritual World. Respecting this time and day also demonstrates our respect for the superior spirits who are in charge of helping us at that time.

- This is the day when Jesus comes to spend the night in our house! – Adriana added.


Gospel in the home

First: Opening prayer - The Spiritist Volunteer will ask one child to read one topic of the “The Lord’s Prayer”.

After will introduce a box of prayer and ask for one child to volunteer himself/herself to read the prayer for the class. Please ask the child to say his/her words as well, as to complement the opening prayer.

Second: Welcome the children into the session. Say how happy we are to see them there and how important they are for the class. Play hot potato game with the children. When the music stops the child who is holding the hot potato ball will be asked to answer what they say while praying to God or Jesus.

Third: Sing songs together; get the children to remain standing but in a circle.

Fourth: Slide show - Gospel in the home

Lesson Plan: Gospel at Home

Open Prayer
  • First: explain to the children the practice of the Gospel at home.


Open Prayer. Begin with a short spontaneous prayer. Remember that sentiment and sincerity are essentials. 

  • Read a passage from The Gospel According To Spiritism, by Allan Kardec (older children) or a children story with a good moral purpose (younger children). When there are young children participating, it is important to adapt the Gospel at Home and use stories which are adequate to Jesus’ Gospel so the children can understand the messages discussed. 
      Books Suggested: A Primer on Being Good (Memei), The Gospel According to Spiritism for Young Adults and Beginners (Laura Bergallo - Spiritist Alliance For Books) The Lord’s Prayer (Memei), Jesus In The Home (Néio Lúcio), O Evangelho Segundo o Espiritismo para a Infância (Maria Helena Fernandes Leite - Edições FEESP – not yet translated), Grãos de Mostarda Collection (Um projeto do Grupo de Estudos Espíritas “Os Mensageiros” – not yet translated), Conte Mais Collection (Federação Espírita do Rio Grande do Sul – not yet translated).
  • Comment the text or the story.
  • The next step is the “Vibrations". This is the time when we send good thoughts to others who are in need. Our prayers should include thoughts for our planet, for the varying countries, for hospitals, for particular areas of need that week, any person in need of special help at the moment, world peace, fraternity amongst all men, etc.

    We then ask the water to be magnetized. It is useful to place a jug of water on the table during the study and then distributed this water amongst the participants after the closing prayer. Magnetized or fluidified water is used for it's strong capabilities of energy capture and transmission. Through the processes of spiritual or semi-spiritual magnetism, water that has been designated for such use is magnetized, whereby it is impregnated with healthy, restorative fluids that benefit those who drink it. This water can also be drunk during the week.
  •       Final Prayer. We finish our ‘Gospel at Home’ Practice with a short spontaneous prayer.

Kinder



 «Hütet euch davor. einen von dienen Kleinen zu verachten!» (Matthäus, 18,10)


Als Jesus uns empfahl, die Kleinen nicht zu verachten, erwartete er von uns nicht nur fürsorgliche Massnahmen in Form von Brot und Kleidung.

Es genügt nicht, nur hungrige Mäuler zu füttern oder kleine frierende Körper zu kleiden. Vor allem benötigt das wiedergeborene Geistwesen die moralische Unterkunft, damit ihm das notwendige Arbeitsumfeld für seine Sublimation gewährleistet wird.

Viele Eltern stellen den kleinen Kinder materiellen Komfort zur Verfügung, aber verweisen ihre Seele in bedauerliche Vernachlässigung.

Der Müssiggang auf der Strasse macht kriminell, der im Gefängnis oder in der Psychiatrie endet. Die geistige Gleichgültigkeit zu Hause erzeugt über viele Jahre, bei vielen Gelegenheiten, soziale Dämonen der Bosheit und Torheit, die über Geld oder hohe soziale Stellungen hinausgehen. Sie verbreiten gestraft durch irdisches Gericht Elend und Leid, Schatten und Zerstörung auf Erden.

Verachte also nicht das Kind und überlasse es nicht wie ein Tier den Impulsen der Natur.  ...>>

VIII Traller Participativo "Família, Desafios y Doctrina Espírita- 04, 05 y 06.Nov.2016,Guayaquil- Ecuador





EVANGELIZAÇÃO

Mensagem recebida na FEB no Encontro Nacional da Área da Infância e Juventude, em Brasília
Nos limites situados entre a crosta terrestre e o plano espiritual via-se uma alma luminosa deslocando-se entre os núcleos de sofrimento e dor. Acolhia em seu coração amoroso Espíritos desorientados, almas dementadas e perdidas que perambulavam de um lado para outro, sem rumo, alheias ao que lhes acontecia à volta, por trazerem a mente prisioneira de lembranças amargas, de acontecimentos infelizes, mantendo-as cativas aos próprios atos infelizes, cometidos anteriormente.


Aquele vulto luminoso acolhia a todos com paciência, calma e profunda serenidade. Estendia-lhes as mãos, abraçava-os, enxugava-lhes as lágrimas, sussurrava-lhes palavras amáveis e, gentil, apontava-lhes um novo caminho.

O trabalho incessante dessa alma generosa era visto, dia e noite, por todos os que passavam por aquelas regiões, despertando a atenção de Espíritos Benfeitores que lhe compreendendo o elevado intuito, passaram a auxiliá-la.

Sühne oder Erneuerung?

Unterrichtsplan -  Thema: Sühne oder Erneuerung?

Spiritistische Erziehung
Zielalter: 12 bis 14 Jahre
Einheit: Die Gesellschaft

Unter Einheit: Die Ehrlichkeit

Inhalt

         Jesus lehrte uns: «Tue dem anderen nichts an, was du dich nicht selber wünscht». Folglich dürfen wir niemanden in irgendwelchen Umständen Schaden verursachen, seien sie moralischer oder materielle Art. Wenn der Mensch einmal die Liebe haben wird, so wie sie uns Jesus lehrte, wird die Notwendigkeit der Bestrafungen nicht mehr bestehen.

          Die Erde beherbergt viele unvollkommene, egoistische und begierige Menschen, welche die Rechte der anderen nicht respektieren. Dies solange sie eine Welt der Sühne ist. Aber alle werden sich erneuern, sei es durch das Leiden, das aus ihren Taten folgt, sei es durch das Einsehen des Werts der Brüderlichkeit.

     Die Ehrlichkeit beschränkt sich nicht nur darauf, das materielle Besitztum des Nächsten nicht einzuverleiben, sondern auch alles das zu schützen, was uns nicht gehört.

The guardian angel

Marcus was disincarnated spirit.

But what does that mean? It means Marcus does not have a physical body anymore. He does not need the body, just as a piece of cloth that is not needed anymore. He then went to the spiritual world. 

Marcus, therefore, continued the same way as before: he felt alive, loved the family he left in Earth, his friends, his school and children’s plays.
He was doing really well in the spiritual world. He would accomplish the tasks which he was asked to do. He was doing so well he got a very important mission from his mentor, a very nice and beautiful auntie.
– Marcus, you will now become a guardian angel.
 He got so euphoric and said:
– Oh, really? That is so good!...
– You got this role with your dedication and good will, Marcus. You will now protect another boy and incentive him to do good things. You will also orientate him to avoid evil.
