After a time
on this (astral-) –hospital on the other side, she - Evelina - again
meets Ernesto from the sanatorium, both not understanding they have
passed on thru - during their surgery, and they both discuss why they
have not been visited by their relatives, and not been allowed to
contact these thru phone.
they are prepared to understand that they have left their physiscal
bodies, by the foregone surgery-operation they both had undergone.
Education on spiritual matter was also gradually given, but as they-
and esp.she – had been a believing catholic – they could not easy
adopt the idea on f x reincarnation.
scan-extracts from the book:
"....Mrs. Serpa and her new friend followed them with their gaze until they
disappeared around the next comer.
Fantini smiled broadly and said calmly: "Mrs.Serpa ...
She cut him short with another open smile and corrected him in a
"Call me Evelina. I believe that since we both share a rare disease, we
have the right to a casual friendship."
"Fine with me!" said Fantini and he added, "And from now on, I shall be
just Ernesto to you."
He rested his pale hand on the back of the large bench and continued:
"Dona)*/ Evelina, have you ever read anything about spiritualism?"
)*In Brazilian society, Dona is a term of respect that is
used with the woman's first name. - Tr.
"Well, I would like to tell you that that carriage reminded me of some
notes I took yesterday while I was studying. The interesting writer I've
been reading, though using a definition that he himself considers
superficial, understands the human being to be three-fold, much like the
carriage, the horse and the
coachman, the three of them working together. "
"How could that be?" asked Evelina accentuating her surprise and looking
at him jokingly.
"The carriage would correspond to the physical body; the animal may be
compared to the spiritual body, that is, the molder and sustainer of the
phenomena that ensure our physical life; and the coachman symbolizes our
spirit, that is, our true self in the mental governance of our life. A
damaged 'carriage', like the one we just saw, would represent a sick
body, and when the vehicle becomes completely useless, the driver
abandons it to the scrap heap of nature and climbs back up on the horse
so that both of them may continue the journey ... This, of course
happens at death or discarnation. Now useless, the physical body is
returned to the ground, whereas our spirit, clothed in the envelope of
subtle matter that conditions its earthly existence, then begins to live
on another plane, where the garment of denser matter is no longer useful."
Evelina laughed, though with all due respect for the speaker, and argued:
"A clever theory! You talk about death, but what happens to this trio
while we are asleep?"
"For good reasons, during physical sleep the three elements take a rest
that varies from driver to driver, or rather, from spirit to spirit.
When we sleep, the heavy vehicle or physical body
always rests, but the spirit behaves much, much differently. For
instance, after the driver and the horse have had a heavy meal, both of
them will rest, and consequently, so will the carriage. On
the other hand, if the coachman is in the habit of studying and serving,
then while the carriage is in the shop for repairs or an overhaul, he
uses the horse for instructive trips or worthwhile tasks. At other
times, if the driver is still quite unskilled, inexperienced or fearful
of the trip, then whenever the carriage
needs repairs, he will probably hang around somewhere near the repair
shop, waiting for the carriage to be fixed in order to take it up again,
much like armor for self-defense."
Evelina showed disbelief and objected:
"I don't know a thing about spiritualism."
"Do you profess any religion in particular?"
"Yes, I'm Catholic. I'm not a fanatic, but I try very hard to live
according to the principles of my faith, I believe in out" priests'
teachings and practice them."
"Good for you. All sincere beliefs are to be respected.
Envy your absolute trust."

"…on other occasions she (one of the patients having been much longer in
the sanatorium where they had now been awoken) asked that they (should)
observe their own extreme lightness, the agility of their new, subtle
body, and the peculiar way they expressed their thoughts as if the ideas
gushed from their minds in the form of images way beyond their usual
capabilities; that they also' examine, in that new sphere of life, the
phenomenon of telepathic communication, considered an ordinary
occurrence there, although spoken language was also used. All that was
needed was a high degree of affinity between individuals for them to
understand each other perfectly about the most complex subjects, using a
minimum number of words.
They happily listened to the judicious observations of Mrs. Tamburini,
who was fully convinced they were discarnate souls in some area of the
spirit world. However, regardless of
their respect for her, they couldn't accept what she said as the
Sitting on the grass near Fantini, who in turn was sitting on a small
bench, Evelina started the conversation, thoughtfully appraising the
"It's true that I feel lighter and lighter every day, and that because
of it I feel like I'm losing control of myself. I've noticed that my
feelings move up from my heart to my brain, like waters from a deep
underground source pouring forth to the surface ... In my head I've
noticed that emotions are transformed
into thoughts that Bow immediately to my lips in the form of words,
departing from me like rivers that extend far beyond their birthplace to
Bow over the earth."
"Well put, you have defined my own state of mind precisely.”
"But listen, Ernesto," advised Evelina, touching the trunk of a robust
tree: "What do you see here?"
''A tree trunk."
''And over there in the nearest Hower bed?"
"Could this be the spirit world if matter and nature that are familiar
to us, are present everywhere?"
"I agree that neither of us has gotten a dear explanation regarding our
present situation, and all this is abssurd, maddening, but ... "
"But we can't rush into affirming anything”.
"Have you been influenced by Mrs. Tamburini's ideas?"
"Not so much. I draw my own conclusions."
"Listen, Ernesto. If we are dead to all our loved ones, why haven't any
relatives who preceded us come looking for us yet?
Our grandparents, for example, or close friends who have died"
"Who says they haven't?"
"How can you say that?"
"Think about the elementary examples in our homes. A television receives
images that we cannot see and transmits them with complete accuracy. A
radio captures messages that we cannot hear in person and delivers them
to us with perfect clarity. It's very likely that we are being watched
and heard without our having yet awoken the precise faculty to hear and
see on this plane."
"But Ernesto, what about the prayers? If we are spirits freed from the
so-called physical body, someone must have remembered us in their
prayers ... Your wife, your daughter; my parents, my husband ... »
"We know neither the mechanism of spirit relationships, nor do we have
any knowledge of the science of the soul. Who can say that we are not
being supported by the power of the prayers of those we love or by
others ... who still love us."
"What do you mean?"
"Have you received a hospital bill yet? To what and to whom do we owe
the care and kindnesses we receive every day?
From Page 68-69:
The trio engaged in lively conversation around a table.
The familiarity of the scene was so real that one might find it hard to
believe that it wasn't happening down on the earth.
Consequently, despite Ernesto's pensive look of uncertainty and anxiety,
Evelina was completely convinced that she was in a regular corner of the
world she knew so well.
"I understand you want to know a bit more about your new residence,"
said Brother Claudio serenely, "because sister Celusa Tamburini notified
me that you both have been awake in
the hospital for a number of days now."
"Yes, that's right," confirmed Ernesto, "and we are grateful for your
"Professor," interrupted Mrs. Serpa confidently, "we've
heard so many absurd comments during the short time we've been in our
new surroundings. I would like to know if we are free to ask you about
anything, anything that seems strange to us."
"Oh, by all means! Ask me anything, although I'm not
sure I can answer it all."
Encouraged by Claudio's attentive gaze, Ernesto spoke again:
"I think Evelina has a crucial question on her mind. Maybe this will
sound like the foolishness of mental patients - which sometimes we both
believe we are - but we have heard on many occasions that everyone here
is dead and that we are recovering in an environment that no longer
belongs to people of flesh and blood ...
At first, we had a good laugh, believing such a notion to be utter
silliness; however, we've been hearing it more and more. Even Mrs.
Tamburini is certain we have crossed the boundaries of death, just like
someone waking up after a night of sleep ... What can you tell us about
Brother Claudio's face expressed a mixture of surprise and compassion,
and he stated with simplicity:
"Are you ready to believe me if I tell you that we are, in fact living
in the Spirit Realm?"
"But Professor ... " exclaimed Evelina, very pale.
"I understand," said Claudio, smiling kindly. "You, much more than our
brother Ernesto, mentally resist facing the truth because of your
praiseworthy but provisional religious convictions, - convictions that
are deeply rooted in your mind ...
Despite all that, however, it is my duty to assure you that we are no
longer on the earth, but in an area of the spirit life."
"My God, how can that be?"
"Sister Evelina, think about it like this. We arrive on the Earth
through the maternal womb, go through the period of childhood, and then
through an extensive work of re-adaptation; isn’t this the same thing?"
"But the earth ... I know about it."
"Not really. We classify earth's landscape and everything it entails
according to the concepts of all those who came before us.
The same happens here, where we also rely on expert geologists and
geographers ... But the truth is that both there and here - we know
essentially very little about the environment in which we live. In short,
we only analyze and re-analyze principles and things that we find
already in existence."
"Nevertheless, in the world - as we understand the world - we're certain
that we are living on a foundation of solid matter."
"Sister Evelina, who ever said that we didn't also live therein the
earthly sphere within a certain level of perception of our eternal
spirit? Any student of elementary science is aware of the fact that
so-called dense matter is nothing but condensed radiant energy. When
all's said and done, we'll discover that matter is coagulated light, a
divine substance that suggests the omnipresence of God.
'Are you actually confirming that we are no longer living on the
physical plane?" asked Fantini.
"Whether we call this world 'the other life,' 'the other side' - 'the
extra-physical region' or 'the realm of spirits,' the fact is that we
are now in a center of physical activity as material as the one
inhabited by human beings, our still-incarnate brothers, and we are
conditioned to the types of impressions that still domain nearly all
their sensorial resources. The terrestrial world is what human thought
makes of it. Here, it is the same thing. Matter is nothing more than
energy. Here, as well as there, what is seen is the temporary projection
of our mental creations."
"Then, dying?! ... What's the purpose? What's the importance in
realizing that our lives continue?"
"The unknown factors of outer life and the challenge resulting from them
are still the same. However, if individual would truly aspire to do a
self-examination they would find in
this new world fascinating surprises in the study and rediscovery of
themselves. Each one of us is a world of intelligence searching for ...
and perfecting ourselves."
Ernesto kept up his questioning:
"Are all the dead everywhere on the earth in situations identical to
"That would be impossible. Let's take a quick look at incarnate
humankind, and we will understand something on this subject. On the
earth, where we have come from, there are millions of people who are
either sane or mentally unbalanced, healthy or ill, educated or
unlearned, relatively evolved or
excessively animalized, trusting or disbelieving, advanced in their
evolution or just beginners. It would be impracticable to classify them
after death according to an exclusive criterion.
Each spirit will find itself in its own group and each group in its own
community or plane of affinity. It isn't easy to standardize the
circumstances of discarnate spirits. It's enough to remember
that every day about 150,000 individuals leave the physical environment
at an average of 100 per minute, leaving behind affections, achievements,
commitments, problems ...
(Data from 1968, - Tr. )
Well, they are all God's children and they all receive equal attention
and assistance from God with respect to the love with which they are
enveloped in his creation, although such attention and assistance differ
in the many ways in which they are expressed. It is reasonable to
conceive that, for whatever they might have been, no matter how much
human beings are adorned with the honors paid to them by their loved
ones when they leave the world, they arrive here as they really are ...
Just because they have disincarnated, the madman does not acquire reason
overnight, nor does the unlearned person obtain knowledge by osmosis.
After death we are what we have made of ourselves in our inner reality,
and we end up in a place that is compatible with our potential for
recuperation or with the opportunities for service displayed by us."
"We're talking about an enormous amount of work!"
exclaimed Fantini in amazement.
"Yes, in the world of men and women, people do not suddenly change
simply because they have crossed the ocean from one continent to another
... The same applies to the realm of spirits."
"Some time ago," Ernesto pointed out, "I read some messages of
trustworthy discarnate spirits telling about their suffering and
conflicts in the lower zones; individuals who, by the way, seemed to
possess vast intellectual capabilities."
"That's nothing to marvel at. Due to the demands of our needs, we
ourselves are living in one such region that is located close to
"But I'm referring to the horrific or unhappy regions that I heard so
many lectures about, and where our brothers and sisters suffer terribly."
"Fantini," explained the instructor, "we must realize that those places
are not unhappy; rather, the brothers and sisters who populate them are.
Do the gardens and orchards around an insane asylum cease to be gardens
and orchards merely because their flowers and fruit are enjoyed by
"I'm not following."
"Well, my friend, the sometimes enormous areas of space occupied by
legions of suffering or disturbed souls are circumscribed and guarded,
no matter how large they are, just like places on the earth used by
large institutions for the recovery of mental patients. You are aware of
the fact that there are mentally ill patients who spend most of their
lives in asylums.
The same happens here. There is a vast territory around our colony that
is used as an asylum for thousands of maladjusted brothers and sisters
that are looked after and watched over by many beneficent organizations
that work in the area of fraternal assistance."
Evelina couldn't believe what she was hearing. She interrupted,
"But ... if we are on a plane in the spirit world, how do you explain
all these solid buildings that resemble earth's architecture?"
"That's nothing extraordinary if we remember that buildings in the world
of humans originate in the thought that designs them and the matter that
conforms to the blueprints.
Here, the process is the same, the only difference lying in the nature
of matter, which is much more malleable to the influence of the dominant
Let's recall the current progress of the plastics industry down on the
physical plane and we will most surely understand the immense
possibilities for elegant and complex buildings here. Of course, here
too we are still subject to techniques, vocations, personal talent and
stylistic creations in the circle of individual spiritual achievements.
The architect who plans a house and the builder who follows his
directions, cannot immediately take the place of the manager of a
textile factory and the worker who follows his or her orders. Also, here
a writer does not all of a sudden and without proper training compose
the works of a musician. We are evolving creatures who have not yet
reached the state of multi-faceted geniuses, although such geniuses also
do in fact exist here."
Mrs. Serpa couldn't hide her disbelief .
''All this seems so implausible," she said.
"Nothing is more implausible to us than the truth," objected brother
Claudio. "Nonetheless, reality does not stop being reality just because
for a long time we have opted for illusion instead."
The professor continued to speak for several minutes regarding the life
and conditions of their present habitat, but finally Evelina felt
lightheaded, tired and temporarily unable to follow any more
explanations. However, as a woman of deep faith, she took advantage of a
pause in the conversation to ask:
"Brother Claudio, I cannot doubt what you're saying, .although it's very
difficult for me to believe we are discarnate, .according to what you
have said. Please rest assured that I do not wish to waste your guidance
in any way, but I would like to get in touch with a priest, a Catholic
priest, for instance ... I would he happy if I could continue to go to
confession, to exchange ideas freely with a cleric of the faith that
shaped my character, without any hindrance to my social life."
The kind instructor smiled sympathetically and explained:
"The Church here is completely different, although in the surrounding
areas in which thousands upon thousands of rebellious and troubled minds
have congregated, we can…

In chap.11, mr. Ernesto Frantini have his review of his passed life
in guidance of ”instructor Ribas”. And Emesto first wonders why he does
not remember his (spiritual-) life before he came into the last life or
incarnation. Because now he has gradually realized that he is no longer
in the physical life. His guide then says: (still from book AND LIFE
GOES ON – of F.C.Xavier)
"Besides being a stage of learning, healing, redemption or a specific
task, life in the physical body is also a long immersion in magnetic
conditioning, through which we act in the world, leading us to do what
we need to do. In terms of our own conscience, free will remains alive
and untouched, since the incarnate individual is at liberty to choose
his or her own direction in every circumstance. However, during
incarnation, the souls remaining potentialities continue to be guided
towards this or that endeavor according to the commitments it had
assumed or had been forced to assume before incarnating.
"This fact causes our past memories to become veiled,
which is only a temporary phenomenon that is longer or shorter depending
on one's degree of evolution."
"So, while in the physical realm we were under the influence of an
"To a certain degree, yes. The passage through the maternal womb, the
new name chosen by the family, the seven years of semi-consciousness in
the parental household's atmosphere, the recapitulation of childhood,
the return to adolescence and the problems of adulthood, with its
consequent responsibilities and commitments, build in us - the eternal
individuality - a new personality, which we incorporate into our trove
It only makes sense that during the time immediately after discarnation,
our long-term memory is still hermetically sealed in the depths of our
being, This situation is only temporary, of course. Bit by bit, our
memories come back to us."
"So, you're telling me that here in this city I am still Emesto Fantini,
the human personality with the name that was given tonme in the
existence I left behind, and that the examination of my previous
memories is being deferred until later?"
"Exactly. Each one of us lives here in centers of work and renewal in
a realm dose to the physical one, using the same name by which we were
known there. Until we promote ourselves to higher spheres through our
own merit, we must remain between Higher Spirituality and the Physical
Stage, working on our personal development from our internment in the
cradle to our deliverance to the spirit life, and then regressing from
the freedom of the spirit life to a new internment in the cradle.
"So, we are examined here by what we were and what we did during our
latest past life?"
"That's right "
"As far as our personal file is concerned we remain just as we always
have been until. .. "
"Until the circumstances indicate that it is time for a new immersion in
the physical body as the only way to proceed with our personal evolution
in the struggles of the life eternal.”
''Are we exactly as we always were in every way, even our morphological
"Not really. Any morphological traits can be modified under the
influence of mental commands. This happens all the time in the human
world itself. It isn't hard for science to modify the
implements of an individual's reproductive apparatus in accordance with
the psychological impulses that that individual displays, thereby
harmonizing the body-soul duality. Moreover, we mustn’t forget the
multiform uses of plastic surgery, which can work wonders on peoples
physical envelope if they deserve the improvements that generous and
optimistic earthly science offers them."
Fantini was pleasantly surprised by the mental dexterity with which the
Instructor placed the precise explanations in his enlightenment -thirsty
"My dear friend," he stated, "although I've already discussed this topic
with Brother Claudio, I would like to hear what you have to say about it
... He said that some of the dead -even the knowledgeable ones - spend
years and years tormented in the lower regions before regaining their
lucidity and peace of mind; why didn't I have to go through that if I
really am discarnate and a man aware of his wrongs?"
"The state of tribulation you are referring to pertains to the spirit
and not the place. Many of us discarnates experience times of difficulty
in certain places that reflect our personal inner turmoil. This anomaly
can last for a long time, depending on our inclinations and the effort
we make to accept ourselves _imperfect as we still are - even though we
are aware of our need to evolve as established by the laws of life. For
the time being, we are indebted consciences or we are examples of
deficient evolution before the Greater Life. We bear the duty of purging
our flaws through honest, constant labor. As long as we are imbalanced
after discarnation - an imbalance that is always worsened by our
non-conformity, rebelliousness, pride or despair, which in turn
threatens the safety of others - it makes sense for us to remain
interned or isolated in certain regions along with those who display
disturbances or conflicts similar to our own. We are like mental
patients who cannot live at home so that they can receive the treatment
"So, notions about being punished by God. .. "
"It is understandable why we have to believe them until we learn that
Divine Providence governs us through wise and impartial laws. We all
punish ourselves according to the article of the Heavenly Statutes that
we have broken. Eternal justice operates in the inner forum of each
individual and determines that responsibility be measured according to
one's level of knowledge."
"Instructor Ribas, in light of all this, how are we to regard the hell
invented by the religions down on earth?"
"We need to address the subject with the respect it demands, because,
for millions of souls, their mental torment alongside others in the same
situation can be rightly compared to the suffering described by the
theological hell imagined by human belief systems. But seriously
speaking, and bearing in
mind the reality that God never forsakes us, hell should be seen as a
kind of asylum where we suffer the consequences of our wrongs, which, in
fact, we committed against ourselves. It is easy to understand that the
region in which we linger in this grievous situation is a representation
of the unhappy mental pictures that we create and project around us."
"I would dare to probe so many issues because I believe wholeheartedly
that there is no way that I deserve the generosity being shown to me ...
I have enjoyed a peacefulness here that I would not expect, since I bear
within me a painful problem of conscience."
"One of the functions of our Institution is precisely that of supporting
discarnate brothers and sisters who arrive here with their moral
integrity undamaged, but bearing guilt complexes that can drive them to
making greater changes. Our help is rendered more effective the stronger
the individual's faith regarding his or her potential for overcoming the
weaknesses that are peculiar to us. Your psychological structure has
immunized you against the delirium of many good and worthy people, who
must often undergo cleansing afflictions in the large asylums we
mentioned earlier, in order to heal the imbalances they so often fell
into for having given the wrong direction to the love with which they
Ribas paused, smiled and stated:
"Even so, despite your splendid level of resistance, you are not
shielded from the consequences of what you did and you must face them as
soon as possible."
"Please, explain what you mean."
"We mean to say that you must have enough peace of mind to go to those
you left behind in the world so that they can understand both yourself
and them ...
In the physical realm we often hear it said that one must have courage
to see and hear the dead! The situation here is no different in relation
to the so- called living. Generally speaking, all of us are taken
immediately after discarnation to preparatory courses in understanding
in order to acquire the courage we need to see and hear the living again,
without harming either them or us."
"Ernesto's eyes nearly popped our of their sockets at hearing these
warnings. Heavy tears ran down his face, while, as if due to the
pressure of invisible springs forcing him to blurt out the
thoughts of guilt hidden in the recesses of his soul, he fell on his
knees before his benefactor like a frightened child and blurted:
. "Instructor, as far as I know, I'm guilty of only one wrong, but it is
enough to have created many hells in my mind. I killed a friend more
than twenty years ago, and I've never had a moment's peace since ... I
knew he held shameful intentions for my wife as he followed her comings
and goings ... I saw him watching my house while I was away ... On
occasion, I heard him speaking inappropriately to the woman who shared
my name ... One day I thought I saw in my wife's eyes a certain
inclination toward this enemy of my peace of mind, and before I could
confirm my suspicions, I rook advantage of what seemed the right moment
and shot him while three of us were hunting quail ... I shot to kill.
With my plan satisfied, I hid in the brush until the third hunter found
the body and sounded the alarm ...
The victim landed on the ground in such away that it looked to everybody
like it had been an accident ... Horrified at my crime, I eagerly went
along with this wrong interpretation ...
But I never recovered my peace of mind. Like myself, the man I killed
was married, and I never got up the courage to look for his family, who
was anxious to forget the tragedy and left the
area soon afterward ... However, I couldn’t forget ... It seemed like
the death I had caused brought my fearsome enemy right into my own home
... After that horrific event I began to feel his presence as a
relentless shadow that mocked and insulted me without the others ever
noticing it ... I felt shackled to him there as if the wretch was
growing more alive and stronger every day…
Before the surgery that resulted in my coming here, there were very few
nights when I didn't struggle with him in my dreams ...
I would wake up as if we had fought a deadly duel, only to see him with
the eyes of my imagination, sharing my daily life! ...Ah! Instructor
Ribas! Instructor Ribas! ... In the name of God, tell me if there is a
cure for me! … After death I expected a place of punishment where the
powers of hell would charge me for the crime I had hidden from earth's
justice; but here, I'm enjoying a kind of care that only deepens my
inner torment! …. Ah! .. My friend, my friend, what will become of me? I
can't stand myself."
Having said this, Fantini embraced his counselor, sobbing like a
helpless boy begging for safety.
The Instructor gathered him in a fatherly embrace and consoled him:
"Compose yourself, my son! ... We are eternal spirits and God, our
Father, will never leave us helpless."
Ribas' eyes held tears that didn't fall. It seemed that he, the
competent guide, had had his own experience with such suffering of
conscience, because, rather than reprimanding Ernesto, he patted his
tired head, which he had rested on his knees, and concluded simply:
"God's justice does not come without the support of mercy. Let's be
And without further delay, Ribas got up, visibly moved, turned off the
mirror and ended the session.
Later in the book – from chap. 13 – is told how these two
”new-comers” were taken into a group – who…
worked as helpers or rescuers on a lower plane.
(This is some quite similar to what we can read in the fantastic book
SEVEN STEPS TO ETERNITY (taken down by Steven Turoff) – and the

translated to norwegian/danish-links on site above-link + audiobooks).
Extract from page 100….:
”After they had crossed a broad area of the landscape, Ernesto and
Evelina couldn't hide their astonishment. A thick fog of several shades
of gray formed a dividing line along the whole- border. For the first
time, they saw in the sky the flying machine, that were on their way
from the city to the land of darkness. They looked like huge, silent
butterflies reflecting the sunlight with wings that seemed to be made of
bits of the rainbow. )*

protection when “diving into a lower level” – like we on physical earth,
use divingbells when penetrating into the depths of the physical oceans.
Fantini immediately asked about them and Claudio
"Those are flying devices that work teams use for travelling on tasks of
identification and assistance."
"Is the region that big?"
"Imagine an enormous planetary desert surrounded by orderly, prosperous
cities and you will get a precise idea of what goes on there.”

easier for them to do without these vehicles and just use volitation

The leader smiled and considered:
"Everything in life is governed by laws. A bird has wing and flees the
burning field because it cannot tolerate the cloud of smoke. A fireman
wears protective clothing in order to get into a burning house."
And he added:
"We are headed for a dangerous expanse of space, inhabited by thousands
of rebellious spirits, who have constructed their desolate environment
with their own deranged thoughts. There, in that different world, we see
the strangest constructions, all of them caricatures of the homes, their
owners misused during their physical experience. It is a veritable
forest of condensed fluids, out-picturing the ideas, habits, ambitions,
caprices, remorse and regret of its dwellers. That segment of the lower
regions is in a completely anarchical state. Individualism distorts the
idea of freedom without the beneficial constraints of discipline, which
makes us truly free of rough willing submission to the provisions of
''And why does God allow the formation of such huge pockets of
disturbance and disorder?" asked Ernesto in a dash of human logic.
"Ah, my friend!" answered Brother Claudio, "Whenever we ask our
Superiors why Divine Providence doesn’t interfere with the mind
corrupted by evil, the invariable answer is that the Creator demands
that individuals be left free to choose the kind of evolutionary path
that seems best to them, be it an avenue of stars or a pathway of mire.
God wants all his children to have their own individuality, to believe
in him as they can, to preserve the tendencies and preferences that are
most in keeping with their way of being, to work however and as much as
they please, and to live wherever they want. He only demands - and
strictly - that justice be done and respected. 'To each according to his

most sublime, harm to one's neighbor, affronts against others,
criminality and ingratitude reap painful and unavoidable re-adjustments
according to the principles of cause and effect, imposing dire
punishment on offenders. We are free to develop, cultivate and perfect
our tendencies, but we must abide by the Statures of the Eternal Good,
whose articles and clauses state that the guarantees of our own
well-being are based and maintained on goodness for all and selfless
assistance to others."
Reaching the dark border of the strange hamlet, ragged and alienated
individuals began to appear here and there.
One could not say that they were similar to the poverty- stricken street
beggars down on the earth. Some of the inhabitants of those vast
outskirts, seemed like pride or indifference had turned them into
spiritually distant creatures. Others appeared full of irony
and scorn because of the jeering mimicry with which they pointed at or
addressed the travelers. Almost all wore strange clothing, each
depicting the status and decorations which they believed were theirs.
To one of Fantini's questions - he and Evelina were the only newcomers
on the assistance team - Claudio replied:
"Generally speaking, the thousands of brothers and sisters who live in
this region do not accept themselves as they are. They have grown so
accustomed to the often- necessary likenesses of the physical experience,
that they feel offended by the truth. They lived years and years in the
physical realm enjoying this or that benefit by means of the superficial
values they proudly displayed, and they don’t accept the suppression of
the illusion and imaginary privileges that used to nourish them ... Like
Narcissus, they are fixated on their own image in the past ... After
discarnation many of them went directly from their physical life to that
gloomy place, whereas others came to live in cities of recovery and
education similar to ours. However, as they gradually revealed
themselves as they really are, without any of the disguises they
utilized on the earth to hide their true 'self', they rebelled against
the light of the spirit world, because it exposes one's true nature to
everyone else, and they fled our communities, taking refuge in this
valley of darkness that they themselves have created.
There, in the penumbra created by their own mental energies for the
purpose of hiding themselves, they give way in varying degrees to the
manifestations of the paranoia they cultivate, and in many cases they
give in to deplorable passions, which, in vain, they try to satiate
until they almost go crazy."

"Brother Claudio," asked Evelina, "have you ever gone much beyond the
border of one of these places?"
"Using different vehicles, I have gone on several missions of fraternity
and assistance very far from where we are at the moment."
"And what did you see?"
"Cities, towns, villages and hamlets, where spirits with vigorous and
educated but deeply perverted minds dominate huge groups of spirits who
are unable to control such situations, but who are usually as perverted
as the former."
Claudio smiled and explained:
"When I use the word 'perverted' , the purpose is not to judge our
brothers and sisters who temporarily dwell in the darkness. I merely
want to qualify, for the comprehension of those who just recently
arrived from the physical life, the situation of these sick friends. In
fact, we consider them to be as sick as our mentally alienated brothers
and sisters in any asylum down on the earth, and they deserve the best
care we can give. With utmost respect, we know that large numbers of
fathers, mothers, husbands, wives, children and loved ones of the
spirits roaming these gloomy regions reside here due to pure dedication,
working as anonymous heroes in an admirable apostolate of love and
self-denial on behalf
of those who harden their hearts in wrongdoing so as to help them
recover their necessary balance and prepare for the new reincarnations
awaiting them ... These models of goodness and patience might seem to be
enslaved to the unfortunate ones they love, but because of their humble
sacrifice they end up working miracles through the irresistible force of
Ambrosio's simple house could be seen in the distance, when Fantini
showed that he wanted to continue on the subject:
"Brother Claudio, generally speaking, are there many spirits who are
rescued by the loving dedication of those who watch over them in these
''Absolutely. Each day our places of readjustment receive small or large
groups of those who long for self-renewal."
"And do they stay in the city indefinitely?"
"No. With few exceptions, they stay with us long enough to prepare for a
new reincarnation, in which they return to the disguises of the flesh,
and without which they do not believe they can continue on the pathways
of regeneration. Between the exhaustion of their mind's darkness, while
in the errant state and the terror of the spiritual light, which they
don't believe they can endure without extensive preparation, they beg
for help from Divine Providence, and Divine Providence grants them a new
immersion in the physical armor. There, they can hide once again while
struggling for their correction and spiritual growth, temporarily
covered with the material body, which little by little wears out,
revealing once again the good or evil they have done to themselves
during incarnation. When they receive the loan of a new body, they are
usually born alongside those who were their accomplices in the follies
of the past, or those who are attuned to them through the same kinds of
debts and resultant repayments. These candidates for expiatory
recapitulation of the past beg for measures against themselves, either
in a home environment that does not match their ideals or in the
formation of the future body, they will use. Many times they want some
of its functions to be blocked, thus wisely inhibiting beforehand the
inferior tendencies that led to their downfall in the past."
"Does this mean that they themselves ask for specific limitations for
their own disadvantage?" asked Fantini with his usual sharp reasoning.
"Yes indeed. That is why there are great talents who are frustrated
regarding the direction they would like their lives to take; astute
minds that are barred from any academic accolades early on, forcing them
to work as obscure artisans or to carry out simpler tasks in a lengthy
and painful condition of sub-altimetry, where they learn humility,
balance, peace and moderation; artists who are frustrated regarding
their highest aspirations, dragging around physical defects and other
limitations that temporarily prevent the manifestation of their talents,
but under which they will reeducate their impulses with necessary
respect for the sentiments of others; women with an enormous capacity
for love shackled to unsightly bodies, learning through terrible
afflictions of the soul the pain of having deserted home and having
despised the commitments of motherhood; dynamic and energetic men
bearing insidious and hidden frustrations that keep them from the
organic pleasures in the physical realm so that they can work on the
spirit of understanding and charity in the core of their souls."
This enlightening explanation was received as an unforgettable lesson in
the spirits of the listeners. It was suddenly interrupted by the
greetings of Ambrosio and Priscila, who were waiting outside for the
Greetings, good wishes, blessings and joy.
The Gospel at Home took place next, displaying the same characterisrics
as the practice followed in the Christian homes down on the earth.
However, inside that simple abode invaluable spiritual support was
extended to the suffering friends in the vicinity.
Longing for peace and transformation, twenty-two spirits twenty women
and two men - had come from the great fog nearby to hear what Brother
Claudio had to say.
The tasks unfolded along the same patterns of the evangelical sessions
down on the earth, supplemented by the well-known Christian Spiritist
standards that allow for the respectful but free interpretation of the

Ernesto and Evelina had an opportunity to serve, as their guide
appointed them to soothe the suffering of two of the visiting sisters
bathed in tears after hearing Claudio's remarks.
Outside the house the team was engaged in edifying conversation as they
said their goodbyes to the humble attendees of the evangelical sowing,
when out of the fog came a small group of scornful, demented spirits.
There was an explosion of swearing, mixed with derision and vulgarity.
Wishing to alert everybody, especially the two recruits, Claudio advised:
"Don't be concerned. This is normal here."
''You bastards' Get out; get out of here!" )* roared one of the
attackers in an uncommonly loud voice. "We don't want any sermons, nor
have we asked for any advice."
)* We understand the inappropriateness of these
pejorative quotes; nonetheless, although distasteful, we believe that
the reactions of these unfortunate spirits interned in sanatorium-like
or purgatorial regions must appear in the present account so that we may
not evade the truth. - Auth.
When the volley of insults had subsided, Claudio stated loudly but
"Brothers! ... For those of you who desire a new life with Jesus, we are
your truest friends at the moment! ... Come and be truly free! Join us
"You hypocrites!" roared the same voice, followed by sarcastic laughter
from many of the others. "We have nothing to do with Jesus! Impostors!
You are just like us, only dressed in saintly cloaks!
We are the ones who call you to freedom!
…Cast off your wings of clay! Crippled angels! Decked-out dogs! You are
as human as we are! If you are brave, stop behaving like old mules
muzzled by discipline and come and be as free as we are!"
That said, the mob advanced toward the fraternal group, but Claudio,
obviously in prayer, raised his right hand and a ray of light crossed
the short distance to the aggressors.
The throng of wretched spirits halted abruptly, terrified.
Some fell to the ground as if traumatized by an uncontrollable force;
others resisted, spewing insults, while others fled in a stampede ...
Nevertheless, among those who were still standing, a young man cried out
in an unforgettable tone of voice:
"Evelina!... Evelina!...Is that you? Oh' I' m alive – we are alive. I
want Jesus! Jesus! Help! Help! I want Jesus!"
Claudio agreed compassionately.
"Come! ... Come!"
The young man tore himself from the gang, went in the direction
indicated by Claudio, and in a few moments Mrs. Serpa, trembling and
filled with consternation, found herself before Tulio Mancini, the same
young man whom she had loved so much in the past, and whom she was
convinced had been east lost to the darkness of suicide because of her.

This review is from: And
Life Goes On... (Andre Luiz collection) (Paperback)
book demonstrates the amazing beauty, wisdom and organization that
exists in the spiritual plane which we are all destined to go to sooner
or later, and its constant interaction with the material plane which we
are in now. This book is a powerful aid and a vigorous boost for the
soul and spirit inside all of us. Written in the universal language of
love, it transcends all cultural barriers and sends out a powerful
message that we are all eternal beings, living through the school of
many lives that we call Earth. I sincerely hope and pray that the other
books by Andre Luiz be translated into English, because not only are
they wonderful novels, but also they are a gateway to spiritual
awareness and growth that is essential to all of us as a civilization in
order to evolve.
all the other books from André Luiz, this is exceptionally good and
simple. Unpretentious, he does not want to write to intellectuals and
win literary prizes, but to ordinary people. Too bad the rest of André
Luiz has not yet being translated to English...
amazing to get to know how life can be for one of us who led a usual
life under the principles of a conventional religion on earth; and
suddenly...the after-life reality with the chance to know who we really
are, what those we lived with really think of us,and what consequences
our attitude finally brought to our present life, out of the body.
Evelyn,a young woman, lives all this in this great report of André Luiz.
This work made me reflect on why we're here; why we laugh or suffer and
what we have made out of our old religious habits as well as why not be
careful to avoid some of Evelyn's surprises, by sowing true love around
book is very easy to read and it truly displays how the three laws of
spirituality, justice, love and charity applies to one's life, both
during and beyond the grave. Life is a constant struggle, and our souls
are in a constant bind and struggle to learn and expiate to become a
better more pure soul through moral ascendancy.
The story of this young woman is an astonishing account that could only
be written by someone of a higher plane with a good purpose and lesson
in mind. Whenever reading books such as these I always see myself as the
true brute that I am, no where near the beauty of these souls. A must
read, god bless all.
book is very inspiring; the detailed description of an of after-life
experience teaches us about several different aspects of Kardec's
doctrine on a very efficient way. Impossible not to be drawn to the
story and to this wonderful explanation of our purpose in life here and
The translation is good; as close as possible to what would be said in
book has the same logic as the spirit's book by Allan Kardec. It is
about a faith with logical reasons, it explains the reason behind the
life based on the doctrine developed by professor Allan Kardec. It is a
book for those who believe tere's something after death, but do not
agree with the simplist explanation of the other religions. In Brazil
there's a religion based on the spirit's book. And the great difference
between this and the others religions, is that all answers to the
questions you may have, are based on logical foundations.
book is right up their with Nosso Lar and The Messengers. Another truly
wise and inspiring as well as informative channeled book from the spirit
world. It gets you thinging about the here and now as well as the here
after. Time is so valuable and the more one can learn about important
matters the better prepared one can be. I feel this book helps elimante
fear of death and dying alone for it tells of no death and never being
alone. Bravo Francisco Xavier
book tells the stories of relationships in the physical and spiritual
worlds and how they interweave for a divine purpose. Very inspiring and
well written. If you have an interest in the After Life experience,
Xavier's books (as told by Andre Luiz) are a must read.

Regarding the higher dimensions- this is translated
from the book -report of
the alleged 'walk-in' -
Tore Alfstad's; "En
(an alternative cosmology):
TRANSFER BETWEEN DIMENSIONS
"Chapter 5 is titled ITM - isotechnical transformation – on an entirely
new and pioneering nuclear physics. I am of the conviction that the
substance here touches the source of future energy supply to the Earth
physical plane. But these are methods that not in detail supposedly will appear
until or before the prevailing power structure - economic and military -
is changed into being in harmony with the cosmic laws based on unison
cooperation, ‘the giving principle’ and selfless love.
The following is an excerpt from Chapter 5:
The law of ‘energy planes’ are as follows: the steering/governing POWER
-"NATURAL LAWS" - IN AN ENERGY PLANE, is due to reactions
between the particles in the overlying ENERGY PLANE. This means that the
manipulation of the overlying energy levels, may alter the natural laws
of the underlying energy level. The law of conservation of energy
applies only within each energy level. By TRANSFORMATIONS BETWEEN
DIFFERENT ENERGY PLAN, DO NOT APPLY THIS LAW. This means that with
little energy in energy level 2, you can create a maximum in the energy
The maximum energy factor energy plane 1 is determined by how many
photons there is space for such per f x cubic millimeter.
Later in the same chapter:
A single ITM Power Station may be powerful enough to replace all
electric power stations that currently exist on Earth. ITM is the most
powerful method of energy production in "humpnap"(= human
nature plane)= (our dimension/"known world")
is compared to the
nuclear power - far superior. ITM is really a principle and not an
energy source. By using the ITM is it possible to do more things than with
conventional energy is possible and so difficult to perform. For example, matter
transmission (teleportation), three-dimensional copying, time travel,
repeal of gravity, etc. For those of humpnap observable objects in space,
it has only quasars that can get their energy directly from ITM. The
object that is called for a black hole is also an ITM zone. It ends up in the
hole is transformed into the energy plan 2 Gravitons to the matter being
taken of the black hole will remain as a cloud around this and some rays
Viewed from the upper ethereal nature plane, a black hole look like a
brilliant star, then one of these natural plan can perceive gravity as
light. The light we perceive, they experience there as something
resembling water. The black hole is formed when the gravitelle field
forces passing one whose critical value. In the same way, we formed ITM
zones by electric and magnetic field strengths above a critical
threshold. A ball lightning as a result of the electric field strength
has formed a momentary ITM corner. Some of the air (matter to energy
level 1 in the area), as has been sucked into the zone and thus on
energy plan 2 Ball lightning is a result that the matter has only
partially succeeded in this transformation process, and the matter
therefore falls back to energy level 1 for a time if. It is then
released large quantities of electrons. ITM zones can also occur in
twister of a category called thunderstorm pumps. A thunderstorm pump can
be a port through hyper-space to other natural planes. ITM can thus be
formed by critically large gravity. The zone is called here a black
