As we progress toward perfection, each soul chooses its own path and moves forward at its own pace; nevertheless, TNSA recognizes certain basic principles which help straighten that path and quicken that pace. The TNSA Principles as amended at the 2010 annual meeting follow:
PRINCIPLE 1. INFINITE INTELLIGENCE:
Infinite Intelligence is Deity, the designing and creating energy for all that exists. Existence is essence, guidance, meaning, purpose.
PRINCIPLE 2. ONE UNIVERSE/MANY DIMENSIONS:
From one source came all. No matter surface differences, all is within us and each of us is within all else.
PRINCIPLE 3. THE IMMORTAL SOUL:
The soul is eternal. While the body dies, the spirit lives on.
PRINCIPLE 4. COMMUNICATION BETWEEN MATERIALITY AND NON-MATERIALITY:
Spirit transcends dimension. All souls, flesh and spirit, communicate with each other.
PRINCIPLE 5. PURSUIT OF TRUTH:
Truth is eternal. We seek truth within ourselves, from other souls, sacred writings, and the natural order which sustains us.
PRINCIPLE 6. PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY:
Cause produces effect through thoughts, words, and deeds. We create ourselves and our circumstances and are alone responsible for our choices and creations.
PRINCIPLE 7. AFFILIATION AND MEMBERSHIP:
Patience is the path to tolerance and tolerance is the path to love. We associate with this alliance to lovingly cooperate with ALL who seek spiritual understanding.
