What is the meaning of Spiritist Philosophy? 1st. Part
“To know how to 'philosophise' we need to learn the science of going deep into ourselves.”(J.H.Pires)
There is a great importance in the practical meaning of philosophy and Spiritist Philosophy as they stimulate serious and careful thoughts that bring us self-knowledge and open great perspectives to understand the most important human and spiritualists questions. If we just think of philosophy as a disposition to think, we are minimasing its importance in the context of human history. With philosophy, we learn to consider the elements that make up the existence of being-in-the-world, as there is a congenital existential anxiety inside us. The Spiritist Philosophy expands this quest and reveals the existence of the interbeing living in infinite dimensions, temporal and evolutive ones, where he expresses its lights or shadows in the forms concerning to its level of consciousness.
Philosophy seeks answers, rises, develops, reflects, and reconsider the previous answers. It does not conclude, just leads you to do so. During this journey we discover to be in a constant and infinite search of ourselves. Hamlet, Shakespeare’s character, in front of the mirror, and with his court jester’s remains in hands, opens the perspective of the nothing, a distressing, confusing and overwhelming emptiness that takes us by surprise before the silence of the death. The answer is this ? Are these remains the great answer?
Existentialism - or the anguish to exist – has urged man to be fully “here” and “now” to accept his intense “human reality” of present moment – the future is nothing but visions and illusions to give to our present direction and purpose. "One hundred years after Kardec, the philosophy in France almost fell apart in the sophism of nothing, with Jean Paul Sartre and his school. But Simone de Beauvoir, Sartre's companion and disciple, confirms and illustrates Kardec’ s considerations, writing: '... I hate to think of my annihilation. I think about the books I read, places I visited, and the accumulated knowledge that no longer will exist (in La Force des Choses).’ The approaching of death, under the idea of nothing, brings to the most cultured creatures a bitter hopelessness. (Pires, JH)."
