There are two wings that it
will lead us to perfection
The thesis that the experience in the flesh is essential to the progress of souls, or Spirits, is well defined in two known issues of The Spirits' Book.
In issue 132, dealing with the objective of the incarnation of spirits, the immortals were direct: "God requires them to incarnate in order to get them to perfection. For some it is atonement, for others mission. But to achieve this perfection, they have to undergo all the vicissitudes of bodily existence: this is the atonement. Seeks another ending the incarnation: put the Spirit in a position to support its part in the work of creation. To run it, it is that in each world, the Spirit takes an instrument in harmony with the essential matter of this world in order to meet there, from that point of view, God's orders. And so, contributing to the general work, he moves forward."
In issue 133, Kardec refers to spirits who from the beginning always followed the right path. Would they also need incarnation? The answer is equally straightforward: "Everyone is created simple and ignorant and it is instructed the trials and tribulations of corporeal life. God that is just, could not make a happy one, without toil and work, consequently without merit."
A question to be answered, given the teachings herein transcripts, concerns the manner, form, conditions in which the walk is done to perfection.
Do we have to emphasize in this process only to moral issues, rather than the pursuit of knowledge? What about those who seek knowledge, but neglect all that concerns of moral life?
The answer to such questions will be found in the book "The Comforter," which Emmanuel wrote in 1940, through Chico Xavier. It was asked to him: "Will the human soul be able to rise to God, only with the moral progress, without the intellective values?"
The spiritual mentor of the late psychic replied: "The feeling and wisdom are the two wings on which the soul will rise to infinite perfection. In the cramped circle of the terrestrial orb, both are classified as moral advanced and intellectual advance, but as we are examining the values of the world itself, in particular, we must recognize that both are essential to progress, to be fair, however, considering the superiority of the first on the second, because the intellectual part without morality can offer many prospects for the fall, the repetition of the experiments, while the moral advancement will never be excessive, representing the core of the most important evolutionary energies." (O Consolador, issue 204.)
Years later - in 1954 - at the foreword was written for the book "In the Domain of Mediumship," by André Luiz, psychographed also by Chico Xavier, Emmanuel took up the subject to remember that the tomb is a door to renewal, as well as the cradle is access to experience, and that our stage in Earth is the voyage to the seasons of the Greater Progress. And he warned: "Without a sense of responsibility, without devotion to do the good, without love of study and without sustained effort on our own moral chisel, it is impractical the liberating pilgrimage for Ascending in Life."
Here are measures that could not be missed among targets we have set for our own existence, nor should they be ignored by parents with reference to the educational process of their children.
