is not a belief system, therefore spiritualists believe nothing. People
who follow this teaching - that life is continuous - are seeking for knowledge
and understanding. This is a personal quest and it is different for each
The first item to be established is that life continues after the so-called
'death' of the physical body. This knowledge may be acquired through personal
experience, reading about other people's experiences, talking to other
people about their experiences, receiving messages from the 'dead' through
mediumship, reading classical literature and listening to communications
from teaching 'guides'. Other information may come from persons known
or unknown to us who have 'died'.
This process can, and should, take many years of dedication and research;
it does not come lightly. No two people come to this understanding the
A life on earth is a spirit using a physical vehicle (body) in order to
experience life in a physical dimension along with other spirits who are
doing the same thing. The reason for this is to achieve Higher Spiritual
Status. Once this is understood the age old directive to 'Build up your
Treasures in Heaven' take on a new meaning (understanding) and become
the Prime Directive in this life or incarnation. A soul, spirit or person
is either incarnate (in a physical body) or discarnate (not in a physical
body). The person is not the body; the person is using the body to live
in the physical world.
Once the student has enough data on these matters and has cast aside belief
- replaced by knowledge - there opens a world of teaching from Spirit
both in written word and from spirit teachers who continue in this day
and age to talk to us about life in the spirit and how to make the best
use of our life here on earth.
Also comes the knowledge that there is no time in a non-physical dimension
(eternity). All things in a non-physical dimension are created by thought,
as they are here, but without the 'work' necessary to bring them into
existence. Love, not desire, is the most positive attribute of life in
the non-physical. Worldly wealth, position and power mean nothing when
a person 'dies'. What you do, look like, own, drive around in, live in,
have in the bank, etc, does not matter - it is what you are that counts.
You know that and so does Spirit. By their 'fruits' (colours) shall ye
know them. There is no evading the natural law. You will be the judge
of yourself. God is 'everything that is' and we are part of everything.
All this you will understand if you really want to KNOW.
poster has been written as a result of some ladies who had come to a Spiritualist
Church for the first time asking if Spiritualists believed in re-incarnation.
I advised them that Spiritualists should believe nothing but seek to know.
I have not seen them since. JHH.
