Rosen will be comparing the Spiritist concepts of life after death with that of Edgar Cayce. We will first see a dramatization of the biography of Chico Xavier called "Chico Xavier" then a dramatization of the book Nosso Lar which is an hour and a half long. Francisco Candido Xavier is the Edgar Cayce of Brazil. He was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. He wrote over 400 books through automatic writing and donated all the copyrights to charities. He is a Spiritist who follows the principles laid out in the book "The Spirits Book" by Allan Kardek which was written in 1856. The main concepts that I will discuss is that there is no death just a passing from one state of consciousness into another. We have all made some bad choices in other lives and now have an opportunity to correct them. Spiritists call this expiation, Edgar Cayce called it karma or sowing what one had reaped. With error entered that as called death, which is only a transition--or through God's other door...For as we have given, that we see manifested in the material plane is but a shadow of that in the spiritual plane. 5749-3 Death is but the beginning of another form of phenomenized force in the earth's plane, and may not be understood by the third dimensional mind from third dimensional analysis, but must be seen from the fourth dimensional force... 136-18 ...there should not be sorrow and sadness in those periods when the physical turmoils and strifes of the body are laid aside, for the moment, for the closer walk with him. For indeed to be absent from the material body is to be present with the lord. 1824-1 Learn to live! Then there is no death, save the transition, when desired. See?...Many live who have never died as yet![masked] That each entity must and will some day attain to the ability to be conscious of physical death without the physical suffering is true, but the day--to most--is far, too far away. 993-7 From the Spirits book. 149. What becomes of the soul at the moment of death? "It becomes again a spirit, that is to say, it returns into the world of spirits, which it had quitted for a short time." 150. Does the soul, after death, preserve it's individuality? "Yes, it never loses it's individuality. What would the soul be if it did not preserve it?" 153. In what sense should we understand eternal life? "It is the life of the spirit that is eternal; that of the body is transitory and fleeting. When the body dies, the soul re-enters the eternal life." 154. Is the separation of the soul from the body a painful process? "No; the body often suffers more during life than at the moment of death, when the soul is usually unconscious of what is occuring to the body. The sensations experienced at the moment of death are often a source of enjoyment for the spirit, who recognizes them as putting an end to the term of his exile." INosso Lar From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia For the film adaptation, see Nosso Lar (film). Nosso Lar (Our Home in Portuguese) is the best-selling novel by the Brazilian spiritist medium Francisco Cândido Xavier. The book tells the story of the spirit of André Luiz, a prominent doctor who lived in the city of Rio de Janeiro. After dying, André Luiz encounters neither the Heaven nor the Hell depicted in the teachings he had received during his Catholic upbringing. Rather, he initially has to endure a period in the so-called umbral, a region where less-than-perfect souls face the consequences of their infelicitous actions while alive. After a while, André Luiz is able to perceive the presence of Clarêncio a friendly spirit who had been trying to help him all along during his stay in the umbral. Clarêncio then takes André Luiz to Nosso Lar, a spirit colony, or astral city, where André becomes acquainted with the intricacies of afterlife and reincarnation. 1.^ http://www.feblivrari...
