Science & Spirituality

April 15, 2012

Science now speaks the language of spirituality  ‘inter-connectedness, unified field theory, wave/particle duality, etc.’. . . As science speaks, the world listens because these concepts are what drive technology and innovation.  . . . People recognize the overlap of science and spirituality by virtue of this common language . . . . BUT will science acknowledge spirituality?

The word “spirituality” is rooted word spiritus, Latin meaning vital breath / energy.  Spirituality is based on the science of inner energetic arts.  Indeed a very old science, developed over 1000’s of years.  It acknowledges a reality beyond the concrete, material, and relative world:  an Ultimate reality which transcends the limits of time and space.

Modern science, the science of the relative (outer) world is merely a few hundred years old . .  and the developments unfolding from relativity and quantum theories are merely decades old.  Isn’t it time for the new to acknowledge and learn from the old?

This is the challenge of our times as well as the solution for tomorrow.  When Life is viewed as an integrated, interconnected whole, action must be guided by mutual benefit;  Any self serving at the expense of others will come back to bite us. Science and industry must adopt the precepts of spirituality and act with a heart and conscience.  A new era will unfold which will benefit mankind and preserve earth for future generations..

A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest–a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
