October 30, 1981
Today is a happy day for me! I want to share the joys as well, even if I can’t tell everything. When we share an emotional load, it’s comforting. The same with joy! When we share joy, it multiplies, because you give someone that satisfaction you had, and it’s even useful, depending on what it is you’re going to tell, to observe and have a better view of people and things.
Today’s date will leave a mark in me. It will leave a deep mark: October 30, 1981! In the first hours of the morning. I can’t tell what, even though I feel like it.
I must say this to you: nobody in life has everything, or knows everything, because the very Law that rules says that, if you know everything, you lose the point of attraction. So, it’s necessary that you don’t know the next step, because the next step gives you the feeling that motivates work, motivates life.
There are disillusioned people. They come to a certain phase in life and they lock themselves. They even die, when they reach a phase of disillusionment, because they have nothing else to do. People who, for example, work for 50 years and after retirement, they die. It ends. Life doesn’t matter anymore. The point of attraction, which is not knowing a point ahead, no longer exists. The fact that there is always a link missing in the chain motivates life. It is so, and always will be.
Very well. Although I have the transcendental knowledge of things of our Septenary Plane, this knowledge is at another level of consciousness, and, as you keep working, doing, acting, verbalizing (verb, you know: noun + action), as you action the words that contain the knowledge, therefore, working, you gradually find and reach the maximum, extreme points of the Plane you live in. Everything works like this and it couldn’t be any other way.
There was, in my case, the search for a small point (mind you: not a point of doubt!) … the search for the knowledge of a point that I had been chewing on at every moment, at every instant of my life, certain that one day it would appear.
So, after we left here, late last night, I got home… I was already thinking in my car. Suddenly, there was this flash, the “Eureka, I found it!” But it was obscure. I decided to stop everything. Stop at that point, stop everything, hold that point and penetrate into that instant in which the feeling came to me. And suddenly I came upon it: I came upon the Golden Key! I knew of its existence, and I was sure it existed: there isn’t a door that doesn’t have a key. And today, at 5 a.m., this key came. It’s the Golden Key that definitively closes Course VII. It’s not that I didn’t know of it, but when it’s handed to you, it’s different. Now it’s the whole of it! This happened to me today. I already wrote it down, because it needs to be written, kept.
And then, so you can imagine the feeling, I must have stayed one hour or more in thankfulness. When I went to bed, I was still in thankfulness. That thankfulness that you can’t even speak. Just “thank you very much, thank you very much!” You want to give thanks eternally – because it’s amazing that you’ve come to this point…!
Well, if you say: “If it’s so good, give us the key!” It’s no use, because you won’t comprehend its value. It’s like that story of the soccer game and the Einstein conference.
I can’t place this knowledge with you right now. If it’s said, it won’t mean anything. There’s no support. To anyone in PRÓ-VIDA yet. One day I hope I’ll be able to… If not, it will remain written. Someone will always read it, if there is the need. But first, this need has to be awakened. I think you understand.
So, this is it. I’d like to tell you that today I’m happy, maybe it’s the happiest day of my life. I haven’t found a happier day in my life, yet. Maybe today is the happiest day of my life because of the discovery of the link in this chain… It’s the Knowledge protecting itself.
Well, I want to say that, with our mental activity that we do every week, PRÓ-VIDA has gained an impulse that only those who knew it before can evaluate. PRÓ-VIDA has really grown!
We now have PRÓ-VIDA’s national department. So, we’re going to take the courses to the places that have asked us. Santos looks like it will be the first city… Then Campinas and other cities… Of course, people in PRÓ-VIDA must now begin to set a greater example, according to the acquired knowledge. Conduct is everything, because conduct is the example, and without an example, you will do nothing.
In the world we live in there are two forces: good – evil, black – white, hate – love, comprehension – incomprehension, and so on.
Here in PRÓ-VIDA we have Principles. You know them. You saw them. And if you are here, it’s because you liked them. You’ve verified that these Principles really do repair man. So, it’s necessary that each of you takes on these Principles. But really take them on! And have your conduct according to these Principles.
Now, which are the Principles you have adopted? Those of good or evil? Here in PRÓ-VIDA, it’s those of good. What are the virtues of good? Comprehension, real help, kindness, non-aggressiveness, humility… Those are the weapons of good. And what are the weapons of evil? Wickedness, aggressiveness, non-comprehension, vanity, pride, arrogance, the force that hurts… all the contrary.
What would you say when someone wants to defend good and uses the weapons of evil? For example: to defend good, man builds bombs, wages wars, wants to kill the whole of humanity. To defend good, man destroys. Now, destroying is a weapon of evil. Killing is a weapon of evil. Virtues of the opposite side. What do you get from it? Just reinforcing your own opponent: evil.
Stop to think: when you want to defend a Principle, you must use the weapons, the virtues, of that Principle. Otherwise, you will be fighting against yourself; you will be reinforcing your opponent.
(…) In all environments, a really superior person is the one who knows to comprehend others that they consider to be in an inferior position, and stays close by. And like this for all things. So, it’s a matter of Principle. Do you like PRÓ-VIDA’s Principles? Do you think they build Man? So, you must always use these weapons. Whenever you use another weapon, you will be reinforcing the other side.
I know it’s hard when people, for example, come at you with aggressiveness. It’s not about allowing yourself to be struck by the aggressiveness; it’s about comprehending that behind that aggressiveness there may be a good heart. Maybe it’s only a fruit of this world, which has this crazy scheme of changing the environment and not man. Maybe it’s just the expression of a desire, no more of attacking, but of defending oneself…
With the young people, there are things to talk about, and we will do so in a lecture specific to them. But to you, who are mostly adults, there’s that work. And only through this work will you empty the jar of energy which you now, having knowledge, possess, and have the opportunity to, one day, also discover the gold key of all conducts and thoughts, and every, every single thing which happens on the face of the Earth.
I would really like to see the people of Course II, Introduction, together with those in the Basic, extending a hand to them. Sometimes they’ll want to argue. But you already have elements to not argue and calm them down! And if, for now, someone can’t talk about Einstein, talk about the soccer game! One day he also won’t want to talk about soccer anymore. Until this day comes… how about giving Happiness to each one in order to have each one’s Happiness?
That’s it. Defend your Principles of good fighting with the weapons of good. Only. Always. If it’s hard, it’s also good, because it will correct the pride, the vanity of those who think that training this is hard. Therefore, it’s always good.
