In Response To: The state of spiritualism (Wondering)

I do not pretend to hold the answer but here is a fact: By nature, spiritualists are quite individualist. They learn to establish one on one, direct contact with Spirit, i.e. they learn NOT to need an intermediary (no need for a priest or guru or rabbi or minister). After a few years of learning in circles and attending seminars with experienced spiritualists, they are "good to go", they are autonomous. Therefore, they do not need to attend services in order to be in contact with Spirit; they contact Spirit at the breakfast table or sitting in the living room with the TV on.

They attend services for the pleasure of it, not out of need and not because their community expect them to do so (by comparison, catholics HAVE to attend services on a regular basis, weekly most of the time).

In any case, I know that this is what happened to me: It is now a chore to return to my spiritualist alma mater because I feel that - when it comes to fulfilling my own needs - I have outgrown it a long time ago.
