For some days I have been thinking about the possibility of writing some words for the presentation of our book (Nostradamus), small in number of pages, but great in its content:
I worried so much about the subject that I found myself humming a very old song, recorded by Carmem Miranda. Here it is:
Announced and guaranteed
That the world was going to end
Because of that
My people from home
Began to pray
And they even said that the sun
Was going to be born before dawn
Because of that tonight
There on the hill the people did not party.
I believed in this soft talk.
I thought the world would end
I was trying to have fun
And without delay I started
To enjoy ...
I kissed mouths
Of whom I should not
I took hands.
Of whom I did not know
I danced a samba
In a swimsuit
And the world
It's not over ...
My God what horror!...
I quoted the song because, in a recent message, one of the GESJ spiritual instructors reminded me of it. And I wonder: why do people insist so much on knowing the date of the terrible event?
Why so much interest and concern?
They say, when we ask that it is mere curiosity?
So why know the date of the day we are going to die?
All beings of nature, including the human being, at birth, is already walking towards death.
Are the anxious going to change the course of the Divine Designs?
Will they make testament of the possessions they possess and can not carry?
But, leave it to who, if everyone is part of the same situation?
Do they plan to hide in some cave, forgetting that they will disappear, being destroyed as well?
"There will be no stone left on stone," words of the Divine Master. So if you can not take it, if there is no one to inherit, of course the majority will enjoy them without brakes, without responsibilities, giving vent to their bestial instincts. From there, the chaos will settle.
And this, the Father does not want.
We were born with fate to die one day, whether alone or collectively. What matters, in any circumstance is that as an inhabitant of the physical world, we live according to the sublime lessons of the Gospel of Jesus.
May we live today as if it were our last day of life on the face of the Earth: loving God above all things and our neighbor as ourselves.
Knowing the day and time of the "great journey" is not at all pleasing to our humanity.
As a daily script, read with great care the poetry "Divine Presence", included in the presentation of this humble work.
Much peace, love and forgiveness.
