Today I was speaking with a dear friend who has been in the spiritualist movement for some time now! As you are aware from my previous articles that I’ve posted I have not been in this movement for very long.
In the short space of time that I have been frequenting spiritualist churches I have had lots of unpleasant experiences from people who proclaim to be spiritualists but do not practice what they preach! I’ve often sat there in these peoples company quietly thinking to myself "you bloody hypocrite/ bigot" you have just preached to everyone about the 7 principles and you do not bring one of them into your life? I have had a very shaded past always being in trouble with the police and causing a lot of upset and pain in people’s lives.
Since I became aware of spirit and spiritualism I’m glad to say that those days have now left me and that I’m moving forward in life more positively and trying not to get in trouble or cause anyone any hurt or upset. I feel very proud of the person I have become and know that in time I will be even nicer again, if you follow me?? So what does it take to be a spiritualist I asked myself today?? I’ve sat all day mulling over this so I’ve decided to throw it open to yourselves for your input and opinions??
Being a spiritual person is synonymous with being a person whose highest priority is to be loving to oneself and others. A spiritual person cares about people, animals, and the planet. A spiritual person knows that we are all one, and consciously attempts to honour this oneness. A spiritual person is a kind person. If you want to be a spiritual person, then let kindness be your guiding light - kindness toward yourself, toward others, toward animals, and toward this beautiful planet that is our home. Recognize that we all have the spark of love that is God within us, and learn to honour that love so that you can know and experience the Oneness of all that is.
Trying to be a spiritualist is a bloody hard act to follow isn’t it? Some days I can’t be kind to others that I come into contact with...some days I can’t hide the fact that somebody has really hurt me or upset me and makes me feel negatively about them! If I didn’t tell these people how I felt towards them and how they make me feel then the only person that I would be damaging in the long term is myself?? I feel that under every great spiritualist person (past, present and future) there will always be first and foremost a human being with feelings and emotions that need expressing in various ways.....we all feel pain to know what happiness is. We all express pain in different ways..We are all unique in the way in which we handle these emotions and I feel that sometimes becoming a spiritualist person is impossible!
