The Seven Principles....

Great Spirit of PN article that isn't really about the Seven Principles as much as it is about what Spiritualism could be about, if a lot of it wasn't bogged down in certain areas..

Some folk still have a need to look back for todays inspiration.
Arthur Findlay postulated another 'seven principles' which seemed more appropriate to current understanding, at least to my mind.

All sets of Principles have a shelf life of their time, some reflecting earlier understanding, others reaching out to tomorrow's world. It might be best not to get too attached to any of them, but take the inner meanings to heart to serve your journey through LIfe.

It would be best that they - all of them - did not become creeds. They are words designed to try to convey a deeper meaning, part of our ever-changing material World.

An eminently sensible approach, hiorta. Smile
