Balance as a Goal

The physical world will no longer evolve without the direct help of the Spiritual World. Here’s a great lesson that nations will learn throughout the unfolding of the Third Millennium.

The broad meaning of citizenship

During my talks in the historic series The Apocalypse of Jesus for the Simple at Heart, given in an improvised manner, from October 1990 to February 1992, on the Super Good Will Radio Network and on Good Will TV, I had the opportunity to make some comments on the transformations expected for society. Like the growing maturity of a People who are discovering their citizenship rights, even if quite late. After so many years passed since the French Revolution in 1789, they will finally conclude that no country can, in truth, develop its talents if it continues to survive as a vast slave quarter with masters and slaves or close itself like some xenophobic oyster, or open up in an imprudent way to the point of losing its identity, its sovereignty. The comprehension of the masses will gradually mature until it understands the value of citizenship in its broader sense, because it is not sufficient to consider the citizen only in his/her physical context, but also in a spiritual one, because any component of human groups is, in the end, made up of body and Soul. After all, we are Spirit in origin. This is the complete meaning of citizenship, which cannot merely acknowledge the illiteracy of human letters, nor equally the ignorance over spiritual matters. To be unaware of this reality, of which we just spoke of, favors the augment of actions that cause hunger, unemployment, sectarianism, the cold individualist ideal, in other words, egocentrism, the encouragement of mockery of those who suffer in society, because richness and poverty are found within the Human Being. To materialize them or not depends on the mentality and on cultural factors (in the future, notably spiritual ones), that must be exercised. This is a situation that doesn’t only affect Brazil. It is a worldwide condition. For generations, little more than garbage has been offered to most children and young people. After that, there are still those who show their surprise in face of the results obtained by such a damaging sowing of seeds, the culture of crime that derives pleasure in the conflict between people, or even in the midst of families, real undeclared civil wars, whose victims are especially the youth (Apocalypse, 8:7), causing many other victims in all classes. First Trumpet – The first Angel played his trumpet, and there were hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were hurled to the earth. Then, the third part of the earth was scorched, and also of the trees, and also the green grass (referring to childhood and the younger years).”


It’s not enough to pull up the windows of your car. It is suicidal to turn your attention away from the facts.

Now we are body, but, in fact, we are Spirit

It is urgent that we change as quickly as possible the mentality that elevates a misdeed as an example, exploitation as a goal, apathy in the face of a mistake as “good” accommodation of existence in order to reach a fair social order, a product of the decisive action of efficient communities, who are fraternally combative, and of a government, whichever, that has decidedly chosen as its goal to make the population of its country progress before most of it should be terminated, or almost that, from physical or mental malnutrition, by the giving up of hope which often points towards violence as a solution. However, under no pretext must we ever relinquish the generous help from our friends that belong to the supreme ethereal. That is why there is the World Revolution of the Spirits of Light, which we appropriately call Guardian Angels. Actually, the Spirit is the reality, and with this we do not wish to say that the body, its clothing, should be criminally despised. The ancients have already taught us that “an empty bag cannot stand”. May we then regard balance as our goal. However, the Soul cannot be despised in any manner, so it would be legitimate to say that –now we are body, but, in fact, we are Spirit. The nation that understands and administers this truth will excite and govern the world. Science itself will proclaim it. After Einstein (1879-1955), where did matter go? Certainly, this will be the Great Reform of all human concepts, because the World Revolution of Spirits is in progress as announced since 1953 by the late Founder of the LGW, Alziro Zarur (1914-1979), who once said: “The secret to govern the people during this apocalyptic transition is the integration of the Humanity on Earth with the Humanity in Heaven, obviously under the criteria of Christ’s New Commandment, which can be found in the Gospel, according to John, 13:34 and 35: ‘Love one other as I have loved you. Only by this shall all of you be recognized as my disciples, if you have the same Love for one another’”.

The other side of the coin

The other side of the coin is nothing beautiful to look at: the desperate clamor accumulated during the centuries, ready to explode. The following meditation by Bonaparte (1769-1821) is not out of place: “Each hour lost in youth is a possibility for unhappiness in older age”.

Now, this also applies to nations that come into being, grow, mature, which is the moment that they will reap what they have sown in the previous phases, if they don’t know how to elevate their human, social and spiritual patrimony beyond just honor. This is a challenge to be met and won in the field of Education: to blend tuition with Spirituality. I am fully certain that the Gospel and the Apocalypse, far from being abominable fanaticisms, offer an ethical, psychological and spiritual structure so that this transmutation can come into being as the time has come for such, or rather it is now desperately urgent.
