The Drosandus Letters - VVBrother Raikello,I gather from your report that you've done some good work in encouraging the Child to a more virtuous route. From what I'm told, he seems to find righteous living much more attractive now. My concern is the reasons why. He seems to prefer virtue over vice because he is convinced that such behavior will "give him an edge" over those who do not practice it. I pray with all might that this is not the result of your workmanship. You should have learned from the Academy that we cannot "tempt" the humans to virtue the same way that Our Dead Brothers tempt them to sin. Such an endeavor can bring about disastrous results that are, at times, seemingly beyond repair.You should be aware that no matter what you do or say for the Child, Our Brothers will always be at his shoulders to undo your work. Their methods are most clever; though, as I said before, Reason is not a tool they use. We en
The Drosandus Letter - IVIVBrother Raikello,Your seemingly panicked manner of inscription about the Child's behavior seem to indicate that it is high time for me to write on the elusive but all too important subject of Humility. It is rather unseemly for us angelic beings to have to speak about the subject that obviously defines the whole character of The Almighty. We can blame our ignorance partially on Our Dead Brothers' befuddlement of language and partially on our failure to effectively practice it. This is a strange conundrum, indeed; but fear not, and hopefully I might be able to shed some light on the subject.I believe that it would be beneficial to first put to bed the many myths about Humility. Humility does not mean Humiliation (even though they do share the same root word). Being humble contrary to popular belief does not mean being a doormat. Those who wish to be humble should not think that they should
The Drosandus Letters - 3IIIBrother Raikello,You seem to be making some decent progress. I am glad that you are encouraging the Child to take his education seriously, and encouraging him to partake in innocent Pleasures. Contrary to popular belief, The Almighty has no issue with the humans enjoying themselves. After all, Pleasure is His invention, meant for them to use for their own benefit as well as the benefit of others. What Our Dead Brothers constantly attempt is to encourage them to indulge in those Pleasures in manners, or at times, or for reasons that are forbidden. You will do well to know, Raikello, that nothing is naturally on the side of Hell.We must return again to the issue of bringing back the Child to the Truth. I'm sure you remember my telling you that there are certain factors of Truth that The Almighty has stoned-carved onto every human mind. These are truths that simply cannot be ignored, no matter how hard the
The Drosandus Letters - 2IIBrother Raikello,It pains me to know that the Child has gone away from us. I know that you must at least feel disappointment on your part. While you do seem rather lax at times, I know from my personal knowledge that you do regard the Child with high esteem. But this is not the time to despair. After all, what is the entire purpose of the Savior if not to save that which is dead? Do not consider this a defeat, but merely a step backwards. It may not even be that, if we are wise.What you must remember on what the Almighty Kingdom is founded. The Savior, during his Earthly Sojourn, told very clearly that The Kingdom is founded on the absolute and indestructible pillars of Truth and Love (as in direct contradistinction to the poor excuse of a kingdom of Our Dead Brothers, which is founded upon the weak supports of lies and selfishness). The first step to bringing the child back to us is first bringing him ba
The Drosandus Letters - 1The Drosandus LettersIBrother Raikello,Why you inquire of your purpose in your direct involvement in the Child's life is beyond my level of reasoning. From your writing, it seems as though you figure that now that the Child is secure in his definition of Righteousness, and has proclaimed to serve The Almighty, your hand is no longer needed. For shame that such careless words should come from the mind of a guard! Recall to your mind the horrible fate that befell the souls of Our Dead Brothers in spite of being in direct communion with The Almighty. Much greater is the risk of losing the ones who have never been able to know Him as we have.This is apparent not only in our own history, but even in that of the humans. Extremely rare is the event that when a good deed is done, it never need be redone. Name one time in the history of the Earth when a country, after attaining liberty, or victory in battle, need not worry ab
