Personal responsibility is one of the cornerstone of Spiritualism. To me Personal responsibility also means being and living ethically, It doesn’t mean following rules and regulations blindly. It requires self analysis and sorting the adopted and outmoded values from the real ones.
Real values come from listening to an inner voice, those of us that seek to live a more ethical life are simply becoming more aware and sensitive to the needs of others, we are becoming aware of how our actions affect other people the animal kingdom and indeed the very planet on which we live.
To many people vegetarianism for instance is not about becoming part of some elect group nor does it make us any better than anyone else, it is quite simply an extension of conscience. As with all ethical practices it stems from a
knowing inside of us.
We instinctively know at the heart of our being what is right and what is wrong. We can choose to ignore that inner voice, we can muffle it, we can try to drown it out or bury it under mounds of relatively insignificant distractions. But it is relentless and it will not go away until we confront it, and rationalize, we can then draw our own conclusion, then the fruits of our hearts can blossom in to action...
Being Spiritually aware puts us in the front line of a world change, a spiritual revolution is under way, a new era is coming and the eyes of the world are upon us.
Therefore it is vital that we listen to our inner voice, speak from the heart and above all it is vital that we behave
With all the good will in the world, a thought is still just a thought, a word is still a word, but unless these seeds are
germinated in to fruition by action we will appear no better than the other orthodox religions which have come and gone before us. For instance, how can we speak from our
rostrums against the cruelty inflicted upon our fellow man, upon animal kingdom and upon the very planet on which we stand, but then continue to ignore the consequences of our own actions....
Being Spiritually educated, we have found a great truth,
a jewel, a wonder of wonders.
I cannot think of one single thing that could compare to knowing with absolute certainty that there is no death...
This one single fact is the cornerstone of an entire new outlook on life and the foundation stone of limitless progress and Spiritual growth...
Let us begin to build deep within the core of our being a life we can be proud of, a life worth living, Then perhaps when enough of us begin to evolve in this positive way a whole new world will emerge and a new day will have come...
When we begin to understand just how deeply we are all connected we can begin to appreciate the value of service to others. When we reach out in any way shape or form to serve with genuine desire we cannot fail to attract those Spiritually advanced beings in the higher spheres... Like attracts like... an alignment would have been realized. Wonderful things will begin to happen
Yours in Service, love & Light Nick
