Reacting to Discouragement Generates Good Vitality

I usually say to my dear readers that reacting to discouragement generates good vitality! Otherwise, what is there for us? To lie down and wait to die?! Never!

The Soul needs constant incentive to the practice of Good Deeds. Why say to the youth that they should not nurture Hope? If noble idealism does not survive, what is left for them? Plenty of room for discouragement. Everyone realizes that in this globalized world, the evil that takes place out there (wherever out there) may hit us right where we are. Let us just remember the big blow in world economy in 2008—few had suspected it, and its repercussions are still lingering. Unbelievable, isn’t it? Therefore, something beyond the current stage of earthly knowledge is made necessary now: to be connected to the Ideal Governance that starts in Heaven. Christ Himself assured us that in His Infallible Verses:

 “18 Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on Earth will be loosed in Heaven.
“19 Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on Earth agree about anything they ask for, it will be done for them by my Father in Heaven.
For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.” (The Gospel of Jesus according to Matthew 18:18-20)

It is crucial that above all we exercise Ecumenical Spirituality in all circumstances. This is something that someday cautious Science will address without any bias. Intuition, as I have said, is God’s intelligence within us.
