What a wonderful thing to study … study is Lighting the mind, while the mass of spirits living on earth adore the mental laziness, hate reading and studying.
So when we look for culture, trying to learning. This is a spiritual growth. When we learn to play music, singing, drawing speaking another language … when we learn mathematics, physics, engineering, whatever, we are evolving spiritually.
Spiritual evolution is not just religious evolution. It is evolution of being as a whole.

Reporter Claudia: Spiritism’s point of view, what happens in this spirit that commits suicide?
The issue of suicide is one of the very interesting questions, because of what we have by custom, perhaps by religious traditions and the collector character of society to admit that a suicide is someone irremissibly lost, doomed to hellfire. And there are religions that do not even consider him more and do not realize prayers on his behalf. Exactly they are the individuals who most need prayers.
Reporter Claudia: Is it different by Spiritism?
Raul Teixeira: It is different, because the proposal of spiritism is that every person who takes his own life, he must be living a
different picture in his psychological privacy, in his psychic intimacy. The creature that suicide is certainly disgusted of life, surely he does not accept the proposals
that life is bringing, want take revenge from something or someone, or is simply motivated in what
call as ” an honorable suicide” in admitting that he will be, on killing the body, performing a featby releasing his people, creating situations able to give his people a greater magnitude.
A lot of people takes his own life within this line of “honorable suicide” to undo a
crime, a mistake, a misunderstanding.
There are alsothe one who takes his own life in order to make someone feel guilty. Then let letters, notes, so that someone is always unfocused what the divinity expects from us, so that to spiritism, each suicide person have a level of responsibility.We can not take a caliper and from there put all the same caliber or measured by the same standard.
Reporter Claudia: A bodyguard, for example, is to defend the life of someone.
In a special situation, of a bullet for example, this bodyguard stands in front of the person and dies. Is he a suicide?
This is somebody who wants to save the life of somebody. If we consider the divine laws he will not be considered suicidal, because actually he had no intention of dying had no intention to kill himself.
Even that one who is doing through which to kill himself, we consider as indirect suicide, like the case of those who have tobacco addiction and drugs excess, if he’s doing it as acustomary habit, but not with intent to kill. It is suicidal but it is a suicide
But often the creature knows this substance will take him to death, then it is a conscious suicidal. It is a direct suicide, because he knows that it kills.
Reporter Claudia: Ist that worsening his situation from the spiritual point of view?
Raul Teixeira: Yes, complicates because, as
the more you know, the more responsibility you have about the known material.
So therefore Jesus Christ established that “the one that has, more shall be ask.” Obviously it is the law of life.
You do not ask a child what you charge for an adult. you will not ask for a mental patient or an insane person that you charge from a lucid and balanced person.
so that the divinity also considers these cases and because of that many people who
passes away, leaving the world who die in a state of suicide, at the arriving in the spirit world and realize that she committed the folly at the moment
of insanity, at the moment of spiritual hardship, of
spiritual gloom, as lots of people who will be carried in this whirlwind, because of spiritual harassment of spiritual disturbance, it is clear that these harassments, these disturbances we give access to them but do not give access to them with the intention of killing us.
The mental carelessness, the way of living wrongly, can any exploitative, opportunistic entity makes use of this open channel. and because she knows that you have cies, you have inclinations to self-destruction, fleeing of the hardest things, then she (ghost, bad spirit) will taking you gradually to admit that out of death there is no solution.
Then because of this, we find out many people are driven to suicide by spiritual induction. It is not that the spirit will kill the person, but it will put in her mind, that the best solution to the problem that she is living, is to realize that dying is the only exit and the creature in the state of interior torment, does not evaluate it, not evaluates the consequence…
Reporter Claudia: So how is the situation those people that somehow collaborate so that the person commit suicide?
Raul Teixeira: It is very interesting that question, reason we see many suicide reborn with cerebral palsy, with deformities, with serious injuries, mostly people who shoot in the
heart, who shoot in the head, they come back with damage in those areas
that the shot has affected. Other creatures ingest poisons, serious toxic, and come back with damage in the vocal tract in the digestive tract, gastrointestinal tract…
And of course who is coming to support these
people, to be the mother of the disabled? dad of the handicapped? The family of the disabled, if not those who which often lead the creature that level of achievement? so that all people who are close to the patient, with exceptions, they are not next to the patient because they are good people, or because God wants to test their faith, as many people believe.but they are there under the laws of reincarnation because they have anything to do with this episode.
And how much more has to do, the more suffering with the creature’s issue as mother and father, who suffer the most because they are more directly next to them, those with more work with these creatures. then we spread with siblings, grandparents, uncles until the company that in a very broadly since it is the
largely responsible for the things that occurs to the individual.
Reporter Claudia: A person dies. What’s up? Traditionally in our culture comes the
funeral. And after that, what happens with the spirit?
Raul Teixeira: The funeral is of course a tribute what we do, that we pay to the body that served for the spiritual being has been reincarnated on the earth.
Our dear spiritual being, our father, our mother, friend, brother or whoever who past away, are not there anymore more in that body that we bow. So our dear spiritual being went back to the normal primitive world where he came from.
All of us who occupy a physical body, before fertilization, the sperm into the ovum, we came from the spiritual homeland, we came of this spiritual dimension and obviously to get out of the body to return the spirit world, to this special vibration what we call as “the world of spirits”, in this particular frequency, which is the world of spirits.
And there as a function of how it was our life, we’ll go to live our consciousness so that each will be given according to their works, warned Jesus Christ. If we had a life of growth, efforts like normal people, there is no need to hero, saint or angel either.
The importance that the divinity gives to our life on earth is that we are good people. Good as men and women, performing in the world every form of good we can accomplish here,doing all the best we can do in our profession with our family at our leisure and our own good health. All we can do, from planting a flower, until the generation someone‘s life. We should be given in favor of those consequences happily for the soul.
When we talk about happily consequences for the soul, most people can imagine that Spiritist is concerned with a happiness that we will see only after death.
But it may not be so in the name of God’s justice. If each one is given according to their works, when are you going to get that inner joy? In the moment that you do the work. Then from the moment that we are doing well, we’ll be happy.
For those who say, “and there is no life after death?
I’ve been happy in this life. But if there is a future life, for those who do not believe, they have already lost the chance to take advantage of the earth time.
So, after we discarnate we return to the spiritual homeland, as one who lived many years in another city because of his job. After retiring, he returns to his hometown, he will find peoplehe left there more mature or aged, and he will find a lot of thing changed but it is still his home.
Hence then, in the spirit world we will find old loves, old friends. We may imagine that our family is all here on earth as our son, father, grandson … and when we got in the spirit world, suddenly we note that our family is immense. Because we are the children of the stars, we are the children of the wilderness.
Because of reincarnation, we are born into contact with hundreds and hundreds of people. dear friends or foes, because the issue of the spiritual world and the survival brings this reality.
Whether we can find old loves, we can meet old enemies, old adversaries with which still do not get it right. Then Jesus Christ had proposed: to reconcile ourselves with our opponent as we make our way with him. Not waiting for time to pass, do not let death come.
If there is any difficulty with any person, we solve the problem here, when we still have the oportunity.
Reporter: Our last question to end the interview: How can we prepare ourselves to death? Is it possible?
Raul Teixeira: Yes, it is possible. We prepare for death whenever we prepare for life: Learning how to live, live nicely, make friends and keep friends, work, study … What a wonderful thing to study … study is Lighting the mind, while the mass of spirits living on earth adore the mental laziness, hate reading and studying but enjoy fast things, without
realizing that as time passes, they remain ignorant, they do not know never of anything. The creature lived years with a tree in front of the house and never had the curiosity to know what Family the tree belongs to from where it came. The creature lives in
city but was never interested to know the original name of the city she lives…
So when we look for culture, learning. This is a spiritual growth. When we learn to play music, singing, drawing speaking another language … when we learn mathematics, physics, engineering, whatever, we are evolving spiritually.
Spiritual evolution is not just religious evolution. It is evolution of being as a whole. So it is worth while we are in the body, because, as the popular saying goes: “such life, such death“
