There is one simple Divinity found in all things, one fecund Nature, preserving mother of the universe insofar as she diversely communicates herself, casts her light into diverse subjects, and assumes various names. Divine love does not weigh down, nor carry his servant captive and enslaved to the lowest depths, but raises him, supports him and magnifies him above all liberty whatsoever.
Because of the active principle and spirit or universal soul, nothing is so incomplete, defective or imperfect, or, according to common opinion, so completely insignificant that it could not become the source of great Events. The soul, in its power, is present in some way in the entire universe, because it apprehends substances which are not included in the body in which it lives, although they are related to it. Every soul and spirit has some degree of continuity with the universal spirit, which is recognized to be located not only where the individual soul lives and perceives, but also to be spread out everywhere in its essence and substance, as many Platonists and Pythagoreans have taught.
The intellectual power is never at rest; it is never satisfied with any comprehended truth, but ever proceeds on and on towards that truth which is not comprehended. So also the will, which follows the apprehension; we see that it is never satisfied with anything finite To the perfect, if it be perfect, there is nothing that can be added; therefore, the will is not capable of any other desire, when that which is of the perfect is present with it, highest and best.
I dedicate this page to Giordano Bruno, a brave, Idealist who didn´t let intimate and went to the fire because of his ideas.
Iordanus Brunus Nolanus (1548-1600) was an Italian Dominican monk, astrologer, philosopher, mathematician and Poet. He proposed that the stars were just distant suns surrounded by their own exoplanets and raised the possibility that these planets could even having the pssibility of having own life. He was Aware about the infinity of the Universe. Also, he took a dangerous interest in the tradition of high magic, gnostic cults, Hermetic texts, mystery religions and occult speculations of the classical world. After reading two forbidden commentaries by Erasmus and freely discussed the Arian heresy, which denied the divinity of Christ, a trial by the Roman Inquisition was prepared against him and he fled.
Bruno have been traveling in many countries as for example England, France and Germany. In London and Paris he found greater tolerance at the courts of Henri III and Queen Elizabeth. Some years later, he did a mistake of returning to Italy. In Venice he was betrayed to the Inquisition and in 1593 was removed to Rome, where he was held in prison. In 17 February 1600 he was burned at the Campo de’ Fiori, a markt place where heretics were executed, not so far from the spot where Julius Caesar was murdered.
However I want to make it clear: Was NOT the catholic Church who condemn Bruno but People like me and you who represented the Church. It could happen in any Religion.
We are bad in our heart. You and me! Because of Fanatism, Money, Power but also Intolerance, Pride, Greed, Wrath and Lust Mankind is able to abuse, lie, calumny, defamation, kill and destroy.
After almost 500 years of Giordano Bruno execultion, nowadays still remain a greatest anti-semitismus and Religious fanaticism in the World, which more than 51 Millionen of People left their home, looking for a new Country, where they may live in peace with their Family.
According with the Gospel from Allan Kardec:
THE ALLIANCE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND RELIGION
- Science and religion are the two levers of human intelligence, one revealing the laws of the material world, the other revealing those of the moral world. But seeing that these laws have the same principle, which is God, they cannot contradict themselves. If they contradict one another it would stand to reason that one was right and the other wrong. However, God could not have intended the destruction of His own work. Therefore the incompatibility that apparently exists between these ideas proves that they have been incorrectly interpreted, due to excessive exclusiveness an both sides. For this reason we have a conflict which bas given rise to incredulity and intolerance.
