One's Belief is simply what a person is being and living. Thus the word contains "be" and "life".
Anything else is a sham ... just fakery or being hypocritical.
Reverend John M. Kohlenberger, HHP
Many ask, "What are our 'Life's Lessons'?" There are none, save this:
Lessons are whatever new understanding you realize that 'lessens' judgment, anger, fear, frustration, hostility and pain .. to increase your feelings of loving allowance and healing so that you take one more step toward becoming whole, again. This lessens separation!
ALL OF OUR SOULS GO BEYOND HISTORY
We are all Divine Creators:living and being "in His image and likeness", as students, teachers and lovers of the Divine which is at the heart of our very beingness ... motivated by love. We are confident in Everlasting Life:As Spiritualists, we believe that Spirit Energy and the energy packet that is your soul, is everlasting, thus, nothing is ever lost, so there is no "death" of your bringness, personality or awareness ... however, opportunity, change and transformation await you, now and forever more!
We believe that God/Goddess is constantly changing and evolvong towards greater and greater love:andis everywhere, undiminished; in every time and space, separate from nothing and no one. Thus comes our Motto (Long version): "GOD-GODDESS IS Alive and hiding in each one of us, as well as in every person, thing, situation and event in our lives".
We believe in the unity of God:We are a portion of this beingness that simply IS; immeasurable in time or space; without gender, size, shape, color or any characteristics of an individual being, humanoid or thing and yet He, She, They or It can still be realized and felt. This IS the ALL-in-all and more than the Sum-Total of All-That-Is, was or ever shall be, universally, infinitely, eternally and immortally! We believe in Ongoing Revelation:We that, while Malachi gave the Hebrews glimpses of Spiritual revelation, as many did before him did (even the Pagans), this indeed was not the last glimpse in 431 BCE. We even come forward from the Christian view that the lastrevelation was given in 33 AD/CE. And, while the Muslims believe that the last revelation was given in 571 CE, and the Mormons believe that it was much later, in the 1820s, we believe that, as life is ongoing forever, so is Spiritual Revelation ... for each civilization and each person. God-Goddess speaks to us constantly ... but who is listening?
Science and Spirituality Meet Here ...
Hear ye Oh Israel (meaning: "all hopeful people"); thy Self, thy God and thy Universe is Unified! Ye are One, manifesting as the many facets of Creation.
Who you are, indeed, is grand and wondrous!
Who you, and we all are, is a facet of the God/Goddess, Creator, Creative Energies and All-That-Is, else you would not even be here. So, that which we call the universe is part of who you, I and we all are. You are the God-Goddessness. You are the universe. Nothing else really exists outside of you, except those things, events, situations and people that may show you who you are. It is as if we each live inside a grand mirror, a reflection to show you, me and we how wonderful and how magnificent you and Creation are.
P.S. This is the "Unified Theory", of Spirituality!
The following are some of the core beliefs and practices of The Mystical Spiritualist Church, in Arizona and California:
God is Love: We are made in His/Her Image, so we are Love, too!Love is who and what all of life IS ... the love of creation made manifest!
We are Inclusive: believing in one God, known by many names and faces around the world, that loves all people, regardless of race, creed, color, sexual or any other orientation.
With equality: as well loved sons and daughters of The Most High, we are each creating and exploring our own divine path with our own special talents, missions and lessons; so that no others are greater than your own - nor are yours greater than others'.
We are Mystical: so we believe in direct experience or communion with Living Spirit that is not only in the hearts of humanity, but also in all life and all creation.
We areSpiritualist: believing in everlasting life. Energy never dies, not even the Spiritual Energy that we all are, though energy may (and does) change its form and manifestation with time and space.
We areMetaphysical: realizing that to be human means more than just having a physical body. We are spiritual beings with physical bodies so that we may experience and learn from what some call "this School called Earth". Your body is your "Space Suit" for exploring planet Earth.
We are light Bringers, Lightworkers and Seekers: desiring to awaken to our True Selves, thus we explore the dimensions of higher consciousness, inner truths and ancient wisdoms.
We believe in the Oneness of All Life: including all things, both seen and unseen, for they are the living energy of God-Goddess, which is love at its core.
There is only Energy: Thus, all life and all creation is an intimate part of the infinite, eternal, immortal and universal Creative Energy that is the Living Spirit and can never be separate from it, whether your energy is tempoirarily living in its static potential or manifesting in a kinetic state of manifestation.
We invite you to join the adventure of Finding Your True Self through seeking greater spiritual awareness, higher consciousness and loving one another.
Some of Our Basic Principles
•BeingMystical: We believe in communion with The Living Spirit of God-Goddess with the ability for direct experience with Spirit, the Angels, Saints, Guides and Loved Ones.
•Being Spiritualists: We believe in everlasting life, such that the “dearly departed” are still alive and well in Spirit and thus may communicated with.
•Being Metaphysical: We practice the ability to grow our awarenessbeyond the confines of earth, body and mind through Relaxation, Contemplation, Chanting, Meditation, Toning and other means.
•Being Light Seekers: We believe in revealed wisdoms given through our connections with the Universal Forces of the God-Goddess energy, which is all that is, was and ever shall be.
•Believing in No Hierarchy:There is no one above you and there is also no one below you, for we are each on our own divine path … on a quest to understand and experience unconditional love so that we may become all that we can be.
•Believing in a Loving Unity of God-Goddess: This is the all in ALL; All-That-IS, without characteristics of any individual being, yet living within each and every particle; in the sunlight, earth, air, waters, seas, leaves, trees, rocks, animals and in within each and every human being … even YOU!
•Believing in No sin and no Devil: These are inventions of the human subconscious mind, inspired by our illusions of separation from the love, wholeness, completeness and on-going perfections that we are ... as we are each and all "made in the divine image and likeness of Creator". •We are creators, too: as we create our life constantly, even as we lie down and rise again each and every day, and through each and every lifetime!

More of our Beliefs about New Realities that are out of the box; in a Church Without Walls
Some of our participants follow the Western religious "Prophets" beginning with Adam and continuing through Abraham. Those who have found an alternate, yet complimentary message here, range form those who were raised in the Jewish faith, to Protestants to Roman Catholic and even Greek Catholics. We have also had some come to our functions from the Islamic faith, who extend this linage to include Mohammed. However those who stay do not believe that Mohammed was literally "the last of the prophets"; as we all have that very same capability.
Some of our participants follow Christ: as our Example and Brother, but not "Savior; believing that Jesus was very well educated, trained and practiced the awareness of the God Consciousness. This awareness was later called "the Christ" by the Greeks. Thus, through his human body he channeled some of that Love Energy we call God, to show us more of our human potential! And as He said, "All that I do, ye may do also".
Some of our participants follow or have followed the Buddha as well, as we do have beliefs and teachings that match closely with those of Gautama. And there are those who come from the Taoist and Hindu traditions who find some attraction here.
All are welcome in this church. We do not preach exclusivity. Thus, there are some who even "follow" none of the above Masters, Teachers or Messengers, for we practice inclusivity, here, which we believe is a property of The Infinite and Universal God-Goddess Manifest. Thus, even though we operate under the "Spiritualist" name, we have been variously called "nondenominational" as well as "multidenominational".
Ultimately, as you become aware that you are one with God-Godess and All-That-Is, You become your Way, your Light, the Truth of your being, your own Guru and Master of your lives. At that point, you will recall that you always have been.

TOMORROW'S GOD - by Neale Donald Walsch
What is in our Spiritual future?
1.Tomorrow's God will be known as loving allowance and thus will not require anybody to believe in God.
2.Tomorrow's God is without gender, size, shape, color or any characteristics of an individual being; yet has the characteristics of All Life and All Love.
3.Tomorrow's God talks with everyone, all the time.
4.Tomorrow's God is not separate from anyone or anything, for this energy-presence is presenteverywhere, all the time.Thus it has (already) been called the All in All, the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and End, Sum Total of Everything that ever was, is and ever shall be.
5.Tomorrow's God is not a singular Super Being, but the extraordinary process called Life and/or Love.
6.Tomorrow's God is ever changing ... alive, ever creative and always creating.
7.Tomorrow's God is needless!
8.Tomorrow's God does not ask to be served, but is the Servant of all Life.
9.Tomorrow's God is unconditionally loving, nonjudgmental, not condemning and not punishing.This Reborn God condones all and condemns nothing, for it is All-That-Is and loves itself.
What will the New Spirituality be like?
In the New Spirituality, many of the old religi9ons will realize they don't have all the answers. Many religions will realize that if "all is God", as their Bible says, then there is nothing and no one outside of or separate from God-Goddess.You give the meaning to your life and life around you; as nothing has any meaning, but what you give it. It will become clear that all relationships are valuable and are created within the human soul.Relationships will be seen as part of a growth process, rather than a need fulfillment.Thus, relationships of all kinds will be completely recreated, both in purpose and process.
In the days of the New Spirituality the principle of education will not be to disseminate "the facts" or "the only way", but instead will encourage increased sensitivity, awareness and understanding to increase compassion, acceptance and a celebration of the awe and wonder of Life and Love. In this New World, the function of education will be to draw a Circle of Relevance around the unprejudiced data and systems that support life itself.Inquiry and exploring one's personal creativity will be process, rather than education as the goal.Revealed truth through will be found to allow for change and thus replace.Coercion and punishment will give way to encouragement.Yes, there will be "trial", but no "error" as this will be seen as a self discovery process.
