purpose of this brief document is to help the Faithful
understand some of the Spiritual Laws (1) which we are subject to,
we acknowledge them or not. An understanding of them will help those
with eyes to see and ears to hear lead a more balanced life.
Our lives are ruled by the Laws of the Spiritual Domain yet most are
ignorant of them.
To understand to what degree that limits us in all aspects: Imagine
what would it be like in the Physical Domain if you were placed behind
the wheel of a vehicle, which you do know how to operate, yet you are
completely ignorant of Traffic Laws. What would be the results once you
Or, imagine functioning in the world if you had failed to learn about
the Physical Laws - the force of gravity, for example - or if through
some accident/disease you had forgotten all you knew about the Physical
Laws of the world we live in.
If you have a good imagination then you will understand how lacking our
lives are because our ignorance of the Spiritual Laws.
Holy Texts of all faiths serve as a blueprint for humanity to learn and
understand the Spiritual Laws. Unfortunately - one common denominator
that the practitioners of all faiths have is: Talk, fight and kill for
their faiths and their divinities yet, do not really practice the
fundamentals of their faith.
Lip service is only second to denial as the most common (fallen)
The bloody history of the world ruled by people of one faith or another
give witness to this.
Therefore, we will only touch in a few key Laws which we consider of
great importance for those who, in all earnest, are trying to do what
is right. We will heavily draw from the quarter of a century
of in-the-field experiences of miguel de Portugal.
A. God must be
number one to
each one of us - above all else.
Do not expect any special favors until
you have given God His
rightful place in your life. No exceptions.
B. Offer continuous
and heartfelt thanks to God for all
He allows in your life (1 Thessalonians 5:18, Ephesians 5:20).
say "all" -
not just what we think of as "good".
Do not expect free "refills" if you do
not give continuous credit and thanks to Whom they are due. No
to A and B.: Unless you make "regular
deposits" on the
above identified "accounts" you are "living dangerously", as in the
days of the Wild West.
Lehman Brothers and AIG may get
multibillion dollar bailouts and General Motors gets the protection
afforded by the Bankruptcy Laws but, none of us will be so lucky if we
are caught with our "spiritual account" almost on empty. There is no
human that is "too big to fail".
The "What goes
around comes around" syndrome.
Should you doubt us, we remind you again of World War II: The
bloodiest nightmare humanity has endured since the beginning of
recorded history was
allowed by God. The world - institutional and individual - "spiritual
accounts" were grossly overdrawn and the "deposits" requested by Heaven
were blatantly ignored (2)
by those who were supposed to make them.
Who does not remember (and conveniently
ignore) what we read in Luke 6:31: And
as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them in like
Just like a coin, such lofty command has two sides. One side - If you
do good to others and persevere doing it, good will be showered upon
The reverse, the results of which we immediately blame God for, is: If
you do evil unto others, evil will be showered upon you... while God
looks on. He is not uninterested; He is unable to assist you because of
your violation of the law and your persistent unrepentant/defiant
stance... unless, of course, you have a positive balance in your
"Mercy account" (which evil doers seldom have, unless others have made the
appropriate "deposits" in the evil doer’s account).
D. The "Let's pull a
fast one on God (or His representative)" syndrome.
Well, the real bad news is that "God
wasn't born yesterday". Actually,
He was never born (except in the person of Jesus) since He Is the
Uncreated Creator. One has to be really stupid to try to "pull a fast
one" on the Uncreated Creator but that is how stupid man is.
First of all - God really sees what is in one's heart, and it is quite
impressive to witness that. We will use several of the experiences of m
de P's (3)
journey to illustrate that.
Case 1: At the beginning of
his journey - since miguel was truly sincere in
responding to the call of God - God used His "multimedia techniques" to
show m de P how truly miserable he was, thus assisting him to improve
For example: m de P was going to do this
or that, justifying to
whatever he was going to do was a selfless act and for the benefit of a
third party. God's multimedia technique would kick in and miguel would
see in his mind - as being projected on two parallel screens - an
action video showing what he was wanting to believe he was doing right next
to an action video showing what the intention really was. Quite
effective, we must say.
You'd be amazed how quickly one learns not to try to pull a fast one on
God - even unintentionally.
We do not know if He will offer the same supernatural assistance if one
or confused about doing what is right.
Case 2: An individual who is
familiar with m de P and some of the faculties God has granted him will
present to m de P a situation hoping to get some confirming feedback.
The problem will arise when the situation presented is a falsification
the reality since the feedback will be based strictly on the
situation presented even in the rare situation where m de P may
know that it was false. In this case the feedback will be given with
the conditional of "Assuming that
this is indeed the correct situation...".
Case 3: An individual seeks
intercession to resolve a problem. God grants the Grace which...
unfortunately is misused or abused by the recipient.
In Cases 2 and 3 (above), the consequences for the
recipient of the
sought benefit are quite bad.
Case 4: An individual seeks a
special Blessing for a chapel, home, office, car, etc. At a later time
the individual betrays the one who brought the Blessing upon the
chapel, home, office, car, etc. Such Blessings are somehow changed
into a curse by the action of the betraying individual. This takes
place without the
knowledge or intervention of the individual who brought
the Blessing upon the items in question.
We do not know the mechanism of the change from Blessing to curse, but
it brings to mind the following mechanisms: (a) the "consuming one's
own condemnation" when partaking of the Eucharist knowing that one's
spiritual state or mindset is not the appropriate one; (b) the sin
against the Holy Spirit which is unforgivable because the only One Who
can forgive the sin - God - is being rejected.
As we explained in our document about the Sacrament of Matrimony (4) - going through a church
wedding without the proper intentions or without being cognizant of the
significance of the Sacrament does not bring upon the "newlyweds" the
sustaining Grace - assistance from God - necessary to overcome all
trials and tribulations a married couple will encounter in the united
journey. Actually, it may, as in the reversed Blessing cited above,
cause greater problems than if the sham church wedding had been avoided.
The better we understand and live according to the Spiritual Laws
established by God at the time of Creation, the easier will be our
passage through Time. There is nothing else that will make it as easy
Spiritual Laws were not given with
qualifiers: Thou shalt not kill
that - no human, under any
circumstance, is allowed to take the life of another human
being. Period! Furthermore, Blessed are ye that weep now: for you
shall laugh does not allow religious/political authorities – or
anyone – to torture so that the victim can laugh later on.
No, we are not making light of something so serious. We are simply
addressing the devious mind of the godless human, no matter how pious
he/she pretends to be for the public to see.
(1) Key Spiritual
Laws are: The Ten Commandments [Exodus 20:1-17; Deut. 5: 6-21] and
those proclaimed in the Sermon of the Mount [Luke 6: 20-38 ]
