    Does anyone here have ever heard about Spiritism, the branch of Spiritualism developed by Allan Kardec and found in mostly Latin countries?

    "I believe there is an important destiction to be made between religion and spirituality. Religion I take to be concerned with belief in the claims to salvation of one faith tradition or another - an aspect of which is acceptance of some form of meta-physical or philosophical reality, including perhaps an idea of heaven or hell. Connected with this is religious teachings or dogma, rituals, prayers, and so on. Spirituality I take to be concerned with those qualities of the human spirit - such as love and compassion, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, contentment, a sense of responsibility, a sense of harmony, which brings happiness to both self and others."

    -His Holiness the Dalai Lama

    from wikipedia:
    Spiritism
    From the Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can change

    Spiritism is a philosophical doctrine organized by the French professor Allan Kardec. Its main characteristics are:

    Promoting the dialog between the three classical forms of knowledge (science, philosophy and religion) for achieving a more complete comprehension of the reality;
    Submitting the fundamental points of the religious systems to a critical and empirical exam, for separating fantasy and reality. This way, men can avoid materialism and dogmatism at once, being critical and spiritual.
    Emphasizing human power and responsibility for acting, creating and changing the world around.

    Sounds interesting, a little like the New Thought movement. There are a few spiritual centers here that has similar ideals, Science of Mind and Unity.

    for achieving a more complete comprehension of the reality.

    "The reality?"

    Is there only one?

    I'm inclined to put quotes around the word "reality," not because I'm trying to be cute and relativistic (only) but because I don't know, and I'm not convinced anyone else knows, what exactly that is.
