Spiritism was brought to us to unite of religions to send the message that we should realize that our life on earth is a classroom and that we are graded in our performance. Our ability to learn to love, be charitable, fraternal and honest in our daily life.
To achieve all of these goals, we must not allow ourselves to be slaves to the material world. Here are sayings that support the simple life from four religions.
Jesus – Jesus sent out his disciples saying, “Take no gold, nor silver, nor copper in your belts. Take no bag, no staff, no sandals, nor a second tunic – for the laborer is worth his food.” (The Gospel According to Mark)
Krishna – With a heart unattached to the outer world, those who seek Me find joy and happiness. (The Bhagavad Gita)
Buddha – A bird, wherever it goes, is happy because it is free of burdens. The monk who travels is happy with a single set of robes and a bowl for his daily food. He goes here and there, taking with him only the bare necessities. (The Khuddaka Patha Sutra)
To understand how one should live within the loving boundaries of our spirit benefactors, I suggest you read the book, 7 Tenets of Spiritism – How They Impact Your Daily Life.
