In the exper iences suffered along the way, a ray of Divine light shines ... our spirit. Sear ching, searching, but what I hope? What I crave? I scan the horizon as the capta in of a ship ... waiting times to rid the ship of stormy, angry wave of the time s we live. What a riot! How many wars! Which of evil! Dear God! With what fervor I ask 79 enlighten men to seek the true and only way! Van which stunned pilgrims who do n ot know what route to follow. Poor lost souls who go looking for random way out of the labyrinth in which€are left to catch! Poor molecules that move and collid e in the daily evolution, Like moles, without eyes or radar, where they do not k now or care what route to follow ... Van no God ... spiraling droves. Van heartl ess killing and destroying everything they see. What they care about the sufferi ng of others? Only You, Lord, are Divine light that illuminates the path and gui des us along paths of love. 80 ROAD TO THE ISLAND DESTINATION

How to look ecstatic, clear and calm night, the sky studded with stars a nd the moon shining in all its splendor, without understanding excited, that thi s is a magnificent work ... the Supreme Creator? 86 OBSCURA CAVE O

Faced with such sublime beauty stood there entranced, and cupping th eir wings with pride, their dark-colored feathers shone with the brightness of s tars and the radiant light of the stars. But soon the spell was broken, to shatt er the mirror of the lagoon, where a villain who was passing, threw a stone and water, in circles, retired. What a disappointment!

Already hard, cruel barrier breaks ground throwing her cell, and f inally, fly and lost in the sky. 103

WHAT MYSTERY life contains? WHAT life contains deep mystery? N'm ace we r ment. We're laughing. Wrapped in h is black robe, a death in an instant, takes us ... The soul follows the body. An d, in a sigh ... slowly fades into the sky. Nobody knows where we came from. Nob ody knows where we are going. Yes, we know where we were born, but where and whe n we have to die, is the mysterious riddle of the mystery. We will never know th e mysterious secret of what awaits us in the future ... remains hidden, in silen ce sealed. God in His great wisdom on this mystery, drew a veil, so that no one could scrutinize the secret designs of the Eternal Power.

Or not they belong t o the nobility if at the end of the road, drop the curtain of oblivion and no on e will remember, of titles or wealth. Who cares ... We have white skin or dark. If when we come to the High Court, our Lord will judge impartially without regar d our sad figure. 105 Augusto anle this Court, only the spiritual values, our good enforceable and ben efits are weighed precisely. So ... Why such vanity? Why such a fuss? If at the end, everything takes the wind right into eternity. The muerle is the end point. It is the great leveler. Before touching the truth, no one can escape. 106 The Vine At the bottom of my balcony one seed germinated turning into a beautiful vine. I t grew and grew and more sampling station and more curled the pillars of my balc ony. Spring came, bringing with her cheerful and many beautiful blossoms.€April rains came and the heat of May and June in what became a garden of blue and pink bells. Then, with the summer breezes brought multicolored butterflies to perch on the vine giving her gentle touch to the beautiful vine. Contemplate and compa re it to a beautiful woman 107 she dresses and decorates curling heart and soul of whoever wants to hold. I've always enjoyed the stand on my feet, looked with interest and no little admirati on.
