The Two Worlds of Science and Spirituality

Something rather stupendous has been happening lately. What is being learned and written about has the possibility to evoke something beautiful to be born from humanity – all of us together!

Science has been operating since the 1600’s totally in a mechanistic void, eschewing anything that has to do with the affective domain. The human domain. which includes the spiritual interests of the world has wanted nothing to do with that. Those two very large entities have been totally at odds with each other for several hundred years now. It seems that science has come to such a refined understanding of how the world works and how it came to be that they – the spiritual and scientific interests – really are only a stone’s throw away from each other, and are, incredibly, sometimes congruent in their understanding and knowledge.

At the same time as this is happening, it seems that everywhere, and in different ways, many people are looking at the disaster of climate change, (and including even the covid pandemic), and saying actually that there is something more BEHIND these overpowering planetary challenges. It is not a matter of us just trying to find solutions within technology and science to fix it so we can get back to our status quo lovely lives! There is a malaise in humanity’s way of living that has caused these unprecedented challenges. Our beliefs, our goals, our values or lack thereof, our drives and actions, make it impossible for us to continue the way we have been. The way we have been going is the very root of the problem. And so, if we look BEHIND the general news, and search behind things, we discover that there is a confluence of new thoughts and perspectives being called forth by the very crisis of the planet.

I will end here for the day. My guidepost is to not write long blogs that no one will read and already it will take more than 3 seconds to read this! More to come on this very subject soon…like what is the outcome?
