What is Spiritualism?
Our society is affiliated with the National Spiritualist Association of Churches or NSAC.
From the NSAC website:
Spiritualism is a common sense religion, one of knowing and living. We accept all truths and endeavor to prove their validity. Truths are found in nature, in other religions, in writings, in science, in philosophy, in Divine Law and are received through spirit communication.
Spiritualists believe that God or Infinite Intelligence is ALL That Is, expressing through all creation by love, light and law. Humanity, the most complex of life on earth, reaches this Divine Source through prayer, meditation, listening to the inner awareness, and service. Why service? Because every living thing is a part of God, so as we serve life we also serve the Higher Energies.
Life is consciousness – without consciousness there is no existence. Consciousness is the totality of one’s thoughts, feelings, emotions and impressions on the mind. The state of thinking is how we create our consciousness. Spiritualism teaches that through the Law of Action/Reaction or Cause/Effect we take control of our lives as we control our thoughts. Positive thinking leads to happiness and assists the individual to grow.
We cannot speak for other forms of Spiritualism, but for us, it is more a lifestyle than a religion. Careful reading of the NSAC Declaration of Principles will provide a good overview of what we believe.
