The Vain

For an effort of the will, let us abandon the Land for a few seconds, let us raise us it these extraordinary heights. Then the immense panorama of the myriad ages and the limitless spaces will be uncurled for us. As well as the soldier, lost in the way of the fight, it only sees confusion to its redor, whereas the general, whose look it encloses all the peripcias of the battle, calculates and it foresees the results; as well as the traveller embezzled in ravines it can, when going up the mountain, seeing to form them a huge set, thus also the soul human being, of the high heights where it hangs, far from the noises of the Land, far from its miseries, it discovers the universal harmony. The same thing that it seemed contradictory here, inexplicable, unjust, then is harmonized it clarifies and it; the sinuosities of the way will disappear; everything is joined, if it chains; to the fascinated spirit it appears the majestical order that regulates the course of the existences and the march of the Universe. Of these luminous heights, the life is not more, to our eyes, as it is for the ones of the multitude, the vain search of ephemeral satisfactions, but yes a way of intellectual perfectioning, moral rise; a school where if they learn the docilidade, the patience, the duty. this life, to have advantage, cannot be isolated.

It are of its limits, before the birth and after the death, we see, in one species of penumbra, to unfold multitude of existences through which, to the cost of the work and the suffering, we conquer gradually, handspan the handspan, the miniature one to know and the qualities that we possess, thus also we will conquer what in the lack: a perfect reason, a science without gaps, an infinite love for everything what it lives. Immortality, fellow creature to a chain without-end, is uncurled for each one of us in the immensity of the times. Each existence is leagued, for the front and detrs, distinct and different, however solidary lives ones of the others. The future is the consequence of the past. Gradually the being if raises and engrandece. Artist of its proper destinations, the human spirit, exempts and responsible, she chooses its road and, if this is me, the rocks and the thorns wound that it will produce the development of its experience, will strenghten the reason that goes blunting. We said that, to clarify its future, the man it had before everything learning to know itself. To walk itself with security, it is necessary to know where it is gone. It is conforming its acts with the superior laws that the man will work efficiently for its proper improvement and the one of the society. What we need is to discern these laws, to determine the duties that them are inherent, to foresee the consequences of our actions.
