(Please read the definitions of spiritualism on Urban Dictionary).
'A spiritualist believes that following just one religion or philosophy is narrow-minded and limits our knowledge, whereas spirituality (following our own moral conscience / many religions or philosophies) is open-minded and grows us in knowledge.'
