Eventhough the text was written nearly 100 years ago, it is very scientific and written for the layman on Earth who Questions the Stars Existence. Who we are, What we are, etcetera. Lovely introduction to Spiritist Philosophy (not to be confused with the Spiritualism Movement) and engages the reader by way of encouraging 4 Dimensional thought. Good one! Also Recommend - The Gosphel which helps teach the fundamental precepts of Spiritism and with inspiring writings from *very* experienced resourc...more
The editor of this book, Robert Champ, recommended I read this book when he found my post on Facebook about my experience with ghosts. There were several things in this book that confirmed what I already suspected about the afterlife and gave me confidence that I was indeed hearing from spirits on the other side. When I learned the book was originally written in French during the 1800s, I was hesitant about purchasing it, feeling it would be a challenging or boring read. I was pleasantly surpris...more

I read this book when I 12 years old and it was awesome, granted back then I didn't understand much, but it was an eye opener. Since then, I have re-read this book several times. To me this book should be called "The book that explains everything in a logical and sensible manner."
To put simply, it's a perfect marriage between spirituality and science.

This book was written in the 1850s if I'm not mistaken, and I haven't found one thing in it that is invalidated by science and current technology...more

“Deus é a inteligência suprema, causa primária de todas as coisas.”» (p. 53)
Roberto Barros
Em nós está o caminho para chegar a DEUS.
O automatismo, o apego e o ego, nos prendem ao solo terreno, tanto o corpo físico, como o espírito, somos por todo o tempo conectado a energia que vivenciamos. Ao homem é dado a cada momento da sua existência a oportunidade de se elevar, sintonizar-se com o plano maior, e quando não mais tiver o espírito ligado a matéria. Quando, pela sua perfeição, se houver aproximado de Deus, ele o verá e compreenderá. - Livro dos Espíritos - Atributos da Divindade per...more

Comme le dit l'auteur, "Nous nous adressons donc à ceux qui sont assez sages pour douter de ce qu'ils n'ont pas vu, et qui, jugeant l'avenir par le passé, ne croient pas que l'homme soit arrivé à son apogée, ni que la nature ait tourné pour lui la dernière page de son livre."

My partner read this years ago in Portuguese, now it's in english he bought it for me. Loved it! Very interesting read with a thousand questions and answers to many of those BIG questions. Read with an open mind!

Cada vez que eu leio ou releio um pedaço eu vejo algo novo.
É um livro de linguagem fácil e elevada, de lições duras e exigentes, mas que se seguidas ensinam a viver melhor e mais felizmente.

Excellent book that will show informations about ourself.

Este "livro", é meu rotineiro, é meu psicólogo, é as respostas pra algumas perguntas importantes que costumo fazer, como boa curiosa que sou...
É um dos alicerces da minha vida!
This one's for the agnostic in me. Sometimes the question is more of a reality than the answers.

Muito bom! Um livro que foi escrito á muito tempo e que mesmo hoje em dia se mantém atual!
I'm learning a lot about spiritism and I'm sure I want to keep learning more and more about it.
Exposição direta das leis de moral cristã - principalmente no conteúdo do Livro III.

“How many ills, how many infirmities, does man owe to his excesses, his ambition – in a word, to the indulgence of his various passions! He who should live soberly in all respects, who should never run into excesses of any kind, who should be always simple in his tastes, modest in his desires, would escape a large proportion of the tribulations of human life. It is the same with regard to spirit-life, the sufferings of which are always the consequence of the manner in which a spirit has lived upon the earth. In that life undoubtedly he will no longer suffer from gout or rheumatism; but his wrong-doing down here will cause him to experience other sufferings no less painful. We have seen that those sufferings are the result of the links which exist between a spirit and matter; that the more completely he is freed from the influence of matter – in other words, the more dematerialized he is – the fewer are the painful sensations experienced by him. It depends, therefore, on each of us to free ourselves from the influence of matter by our action in this present life. Man possesses free-will, and, consequently, the power of electing to do or not to do. Let him conquer his animal passions; let him rid himself of hatred, envy, jealousy, pride; let him throw off the yoke of selfishness; let him purify his soul by cultivating noble sentiments; let him do good; let him attach to the things of this world only the degree of importance which they deserve – and he will, even under his present corporeal envelope, have effected his purification, and achieved his deliverance from the influence of matter, which will cease for him on his quitting that envelope. For such a one the remembrance of physical sufferings endured by him in the life he has quitted has nothing painful, and produces no disagreeable impression, because they affected his body only, and left no trace in his soul. He is happy to be relieved from them; and the calmness of a good conscience exempts him from all moral suffering.” 1 likes
