In Conference with representatives of Cefluris’ Churches and centers in the Northeast Region, Alfredo gives a final word about what he saw on his visits to the Churches in Brasil. And, and as I always do this review in various places, even foreign ones, I always like to say the truth that I see and the truth that I aim for.
We yearn for a pure and sound truth. In the course of my review, I have observed in all the centers that are established, a warning is necessary. I’ve been giving this warning, and I will reaffirm it: Then, with this care we will thus have power to cure a series of extravangant illnesses created by the ego. Even in spirituality, in this spiritual school, we are plagued by all kinds of things in our thoughts, many times by intuitions that seem like the power of wisdom that will take us beyond steps, which are really the humble stride of the apprentice in a school in which the professor is owner of all, is God.
Thus I would like, possibly, to find a way to explicate a heedfulness for all persons who would be responsible, be it for a prayer, or for a Center of or people, it matters not the size, the heedfulness for people not to lose themselves on the way, before reaching the objective, reaching the goal, because it is a satanic temptation that one can see a lot in tbe Bible. Those who read the Bible know this, and what’s more, this brings us a sign of the end of times, a sign in spiritual study of an awakening to a new stage of work.
So the warning is that in all families, disunity seeks to destroy. The majority of orphans today, and most of the suffering of poverty and difficulty today, is the action of Satan within the families.
Whether they be a couple without children, or a couple with many children, If the people haven’t had the happiness to have faith and courage and the protection to free themselves from the effect that this power has, that is to separate father from mother, and separate the son from the father, set one against another. The theme, the evidences, and even the teaching of disunion to the children makes them continue in this condition of not being able to have peace not even united, not even with their families.
This happens in that moment in which the families of the Universal Family begin to have a perception of the awakening of the true union in God. Thus, as soon as one founds a church or a center, it starts with one person or two. This is a joy, this is a force, this is a power. Soon, more and more come, and the same rhythm is strengthened, it grows. At a certain point down the road, there begins to enter a divergence between the group that committed itself to fulfilling the law of the Doctrine, and not the law of the thought of each one.
It is necessary to feel this quite well, since it’s necessary, when forming a Directorate, that people be very clear about fulfilling the law of the Docrine and not the law of each one. Because when three people want to each follow their own path, each one will take their path, and that’s what’s happening in the Brazilian Regions and the Foreign Regions today. I may say this: If we would like to make groups to walk crooked, we should make a tourism group, like any other business, so we can screw around and get arrested and then it comes out in the paper that it was corrupt, that is was this or that.
However, with the Doctrine, it is different. The Justice of the Doctrine is Divine. Therefore, one cannot say that a person is right if they are not right; that a group is united, if it is not united. Therefore, by itself it clearly presents itself that it is not united. Not being united, it has no force. Now, this is not the fault of the goodwill of the spirit of each to unite, because this is the will of God in each one of us.
It is the fault of the actions of various other worldly senses, egoist, powerful, that work their way into the Directorate, in the united groups, and make the fabric come undone.
Therefore, I want to give this warning here because there are already several centers and it may be that each one would like to speak briefly about their center, not only of that which is nice and pretty, and which we see, but also of that which they themselves know is not nice and pretty, and which cannot be covered because one sees the ugly as well.
Well, may all this bring about this force and this understanding, which I desire, through this, my work here, my sacrifice, and the sacrifice of all my brothers, to help us strengthen this chain so that satan does not have more force than God. And likewise, let us not give energy to make that negative current become stronger within a sector of the church than the positive current.
Because, when there is disunion, the negative current is receiving more force than the positive current. And I come here to fortify the current of the Doctrine, the current of spiritual education. One very fine point that deserves our attention, our care, because often disagreeable things happen that are not to the liking, nor are the will of the members themselves, but rather from the negative force that comes and puts suspicion in a person- be it from jealousy, from envy, be it from the “bad news mail”-that they are a divine being prepared, very well prepared, to test whether the group is firm with God, whether it is firm within itself or not.
Thus this force of mine that I have been giving, be it in this Regional that I have travelled just now, or in other Regionals where I have been explaining this, giving it as an alert to the brothers and sisters, to the fighters, to the warriors of this Light-this care is calculated toward this negative front that is destroying our group.
It has been destroying groups I have helped for four years, groups that bring together 50 or 60 fardados, who sing all the hymnals, observe all the calendars, and today are suffering the need of even one drink of Daime. Only now is it being recognized that all that was the result of a lack of care when they are in the cradle, when the Doctrine is budding.
So, it is necessary to be careful because when it is budding, many demands of envy, of jealousy and other things that bring one down, attack.
Mestre Irineu – Luiz Mendes do Nascimento
Therefore, I want to warn our Brazilian group, as well as those who are helping overseas, against making the Doctrine of Santo Daime points of contention over spirituality, pavrinho grounds for power struggles. Because the power of matter goes only to the level that it can bear.
And this means that matter is humble.
If matter wants to be more than it is, then the ego is dominating. And this is no place for us to place our faith, because all matter is transitory. It thinks that it will take over the whole world, but it’s already gone, there’s already another president taking over Brazil, taking over whichever sector for things to be able xebastiao continue.
Try to discipline all your egos, to discipline all your desires to try and have an apparatus that will fulfill the desires of God, the disires of this Doctrine, the desires of Santo Daime, which are to do good, not to do evil. Thus, with this force in our thought, I seabstiao that all the centers will be able to reach better understanding with their partners, they will be better able to pardon some thing, some difference that exists, and possibly introduce themselves into the official calendar of CEFLURIS, which is the trabalhos: Each group that is firm, which holds onto the hand of the Mestre grows, creates support and gives support to the communities from which will come the continuation hinaroi this Eternal Daime, the name of the Project that I applied many years ago to this Ppadrinho vehicle that is Eternal Daime.
This holds for all those here, for all in Brazil and for the entire World. It is like a prayer one does for others, for the whole World and for oneself. And this prayer is contained in this tea.
This tea is this Doctrine. Thus we cannot invent, we cannot invent, we cannot run over, we also cannot brake too much, nor retreat. We must proceed with calm and comprehension, with a force to maintain union among the brothers and sisters, avoiding the entrance of negativity, because if it enters it is for a study, so the person will have, in the end, a positive result, and not lose one’s chance, because if the result is not positive, it will certainly be negative.
Someone will leave there feeling rage toward the Doctrine, someone will leave suspicious of the wife of another, and this comes to destroy. Many people did not triumph. And those who did, almost all have scars because it is hard and difficult to maintain union.
But it is possible through this care, through this enlargement, through this calm. We must be calm with the brothers and sisters. Each center has its would-be Councillors, would-be Directors, and they form the Directorate in such a way that it can always have one more, and two more, and three more, and be careful here, because I am explainin because it has been like this: CEFLURIS, the more it takes pity, the more it wears itself out, the more it, through these confusions, through this lack of spiritual education of people, gains a reputation of being a bad entity, or being an entity that does not take account, of being an entity that is this and that, because a person who doesn’t know often uses the entity to speak grandiosely, to speak vainly or to say things that he does not fulfill.
This way, soon more people are knowing, soon the person has better faith, and everything moves forward. With this care, we go, to accompany the Regional centers from here, so that soon we will have the pleasure and this great force, that thus we saw a pretty thing, in every center I went there was a pretty thing, thus it is worthwhile to try to gather the brothers and sisters together, to fulfill the Divine Promise, to complete the Divine Mission.
It is not because he comes, he will be the slave of the owner of the house, or will be tossed alongside the highway, no.
It is all sebasitao able to feel equal, and to feel the force of the will to speak and vibrate, not only at the point he is at, but at all points centers. And with this we can enter into this undersanding that he who doesn’t know the root, possibly doesn’t know the stalk. It is much more difficult to enter the stems and come out through the flowers, and fell the fruit to be able to be born again.
Because, what is more, they have the capacity to complicate things, and bring difficulty down on God, many times by the apparatuses that are outfitting this Divine Force.
This is for those who want. He can come to me just the same an say I can’t, I only know how to go fighting, making a scene, very well, then, keep being my brother, now the entity needs to heal, the entity needs to have a center of responsibility, be they two people, be it one, it doesn’t take many people for us to be sincere, I think that it only takes one to be sincere.
If I am sincere, and you’re sincere, we’ve already webastiao, and from there things can go. Thus, I say this because, on the contrary, things don’t go. Up to now, I have been working, thanks to God that I haven’t yet said no to anyone in respect to the good ritual functioning of Santo Daime. How can it be? I think that however much justice there is, the closer it comes to the time when the line is drawn: What I say here, I say wherever I go. Let us take heed, because I am gathering, I am noting the people that I am gathering, I am noting the groups, the afiliates, and I need more firmness in all the groups, in all the afiliates, for us to speak out loud and clear to our governments, to the despots of the world, because if it is not with much truth, with all truth, many or all can shout the truth, but the world won’t yinario.
The world swings back and forth, and it will continue to do so. So, I want sbastiao say this, for the good of our universal family of Santo Daime: And this is done with faith, with courage, with calm and hope in the Mestre. There is one more thing: If you know how to seek right, you will expand in this pleasure, but padronho in this pride.
Pride is the owner of the world, but it only cripples.
If pride were as pride wants to be, greater than God, the tranca-rua [ translator’s note: It literally means “blocks-the-road. And look at what trouble they cause. Otherwise, the two die together and he can’t sebasgiao health, the respite that entity needs to be able to shine again. Let everyone be strong and every spirit will be strong. From there comes our line of having no enemies.
Santo Daime hymns
In our Doctrine, we have opened a broad band of charity so that we have no enemies. The enemy who comes wanting to destroy, we have the spiritual rearguard, so that before he destroys, he destroys himself, he collapses by himself.
Since we are dealing with spiritual labors, one should not look only to the material, one should not heed only the material meetings. One must be alert to the demands that come from the side of the spirits, from the side of those mocking spirits, that come from the side ofthose who don’t want to renounce their business, and have the force to channel these beings and to show them the other side that they don’t know, since they live in darkness on the earth and die in that same darkness of the ego.
The world is like that – soon comes the time for it to take us awayl, and it may be that there are people who say Padrinho, I drank Daime for 50 years, and the answer will still be, following that of Christ: I know thee not, you took Daime but you were always fighting, you did not live in my presence, you did not live doing as I ordered – isn’t it? Thus I say that we ought to be careful.
I say it not because I am free, no, but ;adrinho I am walking in this sea of darkness, as Mestre Irineu Serra said. Even if we are born mature, there are so many things in illusion there, pretty and delicious, that sometimes entangle a person. From one wanting to mix Daime with this or that, with that other force, with this or that other, inventing things without having conviction of what one is doing, without having real knowledge of what one is doing.
