THE SPIRITIST DOCTRINE or SPIRITISM

What is?

It is a set of Guidelines and principles, as revealed by the Superior Spirits, contained in the works of Allan Kardec, which constitute the Spiritist Doctrine Codification

"Spiritism is a science which deals with the nature, origin and destiny of Spirits, as well as their relationship with the corporeal world." Allan Kardec

What it reveals?

It reveals new and deep concepts with respect to God, the Universe, Human Beings, the Spirits, and the Laws which govern life itself.

Furthermore, it reveals: who we are; where we came from; where we go after passing away ; what is the objective of our existence;  reasons for pain and suffering.

Spiritism basic teachings

God is the Supreme Intelligence on the Universe, Creator of all things.  God is eternal, immutable, immaterial, unique, omnipotent, supremely just and good.

Beside
the corporeal world inhabited by incarnate Spirits,  there is a much bigger and complex one,  occupied by the Spirits.

Within the Universe there are other inhabited worlds, with lives at different degrees of evolution: some equal, others more or less evolved than Human Beings.

The Spirits are the intelligent beings of creation. They constitute the world of the Spirits, which pre-exists and outlives everything.

Spirits are created simple and ignorant. They evolve intellectually and morally, passing from a lower order to a higher one, until they attain perfection, where they will enjoy unalterable bliss.

Spirits preserve their individuality before, during, and after each incarnation.

The Spirits' relations with Human Beings are constant and have always existed. The Good Spirits attract us towards goodness, sustain us in life's trials, and help us bear them with courage and resignation.  The Imperfect Spirits induce us towards error.

Jesus is the Guide and Model for all Humankind. The Doctrine He taught and exemplified is the most pure expression of God's Law.

The morality of Christ, as contained in the Gospels, is the pathway for the secure progress of all Human Beings.  Its practice is the solution for all human problems and the objective to be attained by Humankind.

Human Beings are given the free will to act, but they must answer for the consequences of their actions.

Prayer is an act of adoration for God. It is found in the natural law and is the result of an innate sentiment in every Human Being, just as the idea of the existence of the Creator is innate.
