The Progressive Party subscribes to the underlying philosophy of Prout which is fundamentally spiritual in nature, not because it subscribes to a specific religious view, but because it acknowledges the inherent unity of all life and the spiritual essence at the core of all beings. This spiritual vision also acknowledges the convergence between consciousness and matter, creating a web of life in which humans must strive to coexist in harmony.
Humans are not only physical and mental beings, but also spiritual. Political and economic planning must therefore acknowledge these three dimensions of life. Spirituality embraces rationality, universal values and science, and should not be confused with a specific religious dogma. Spirituality can be described as the universal wisdom at the core of all religions.
Prout’s vision supports humanity to achieve progress, not just in the material or mental sphere, but in attaining inner happiness through self-realization on a spiritual level. Its economic and social structure is designed to meet people’s basic needs, allowing them to focus on developing qualities of love, compassion and equality for one another and the natural world.
