This blog doesn't have doctrinaire pretensions. All that is here posted, humbly aims to share the knowledge that was given to us by great souls, especially the biggest Master that came to this planet, Jesus Christ. Hoping that in my search for spiritual illumination, I am able to share with others what brings me inner comfort.



             AFTER THE STORM....

     Man has expected Science and Technology to bring him abundance and comfort; to skyrocket his sense of enjoyment and hapiness.
     Fascinated by the idea of power and objective results, and more concerned with the success of their achievements, technicians have been unaware of Humanity's need for spiritual values.
     The conquest of space, with the plausible idea of exploring worlds, did not add a bit to man's inner realization...
     Likewise the advancement of Medicine and its success in resolving many health problems has ushered the discovery of new organic and psychic disorders for wich there is no early solution in sight.
    New and valid educational methods, backed by psychological studies and research, have only resulted in perplexity and frustation. They failed to bring under control an unreasonable and disillusioned youth. This has alarmed educators and caused psychologists to worry about future generations...
    Makeshift solutions have abounded only to result in failure due to the complexity of problems wich upset nations and communities...
    Serious moral, economic and social upheavals keep showing up everywhere.

   There is a storm brewing in the ocean of Humanity.

   The Earth is like a huge boat overcome by the elements. The passengers are exasperated; they cry, scream, go in to a rage, and.... they pray.

   Materialism is obviously failing. Being responsible for the present state of mankind and civilization, it only lulls the masses for a while then begins to weaken, fade away, and will soon disappear....

   But after the storm has passed, the gift of peace comes.

   Only the Love as taught by Christ can solve the great problems that torment Humanity.

    Love will make people realize that only by helping one another can they be saved, for there is individual suffering, and when one person suffers all are affected. Happiness can not be self centered, and it is doubtful that anyone could rejoice while sorrounded by those in tears.
    Hope, based on the concept of brotherhood, stimulates the young to go forward and to achieve what is noble.
    This is the type of Love that impelled Prince Siddhartha to renounce luxury and adopt meditation and brotherhood. The same Love induced Francis of Assisi to embrace poverty and humility; Mahatma Gandhi to practice "nonviolence", and Albert Schweizer to dedicate himself to the sick in Lambarene...
   This is the Love which produced giants of renunciation, great ones of Science, Apostles of Charity, and self-giving Saints. It is this Love that, while surrounded by corruption and evil, inspired the true philosophers of freedom, the giants of religious faith, and the heroes of brotherhood....

   Arising from the ruins of a materialistic culture, Love restores peace to human ears in the Gospel's Beatitudes; a song of wisdom and beauty to those who hope for the joyful days to come, already being announced.

   The Gospel - which is the paramount of moral codes - as viewed by the Lord's Spirits in all its purity, stands at the gate of a new era. It will at last find lodging in the souls  of men to become the guiding principle of all nations.
