“To err is human; to admit it, superhuman.” ~Doug Larson
Untangle spirituality from religion. Discover the deeper principle that must be at work. Yank the needle of truth out from the haystack of lies that have smothered humankind for too long. Uncertain questioning is far superior to outdated, hand-me-down answers from parochial sycophants. Like Richard Feynman said, “I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned.” Question the lot. You are a fallible, prone to mistakes, fumbling, stumbling, barely evolved naked ape desperately trying to figure out a hypnotically complex cosmos with limited faculties. So be it.
Quit being so hard on yourself. Stop taking yourself so damn seriously. Laugh at yourself instead. There is more spirituality in a heart full of #laughter than in all the places of worship in the world.
The boundary between “you” & “world” is a stubbornly persistent illusion. Practicing scientific spirituality is a superpower precisely because it takes into account both the phenomenally plausible Self and the noumenally probable #Reality. It bridges the gap between “I am” and “I doubt.” It builds a conceivable #construct between Fibonacci & Phi. It connects the dots between the profane geometry of life and the sacred physics of Infinity.
We need a more rational approach to spirituality. One instilled with a more #compassionate metamorality. One that has the power to forgive but not forget. We must learn how to talk about spirituality in a way that is as free from dogma, as science already is. Let’s broaden our spiritual horizons.
Let’s seize the new dawn on the beach of our soul’s compass. Let’s discover an ontology of immanence, a way to seize life and take more of the world into ourselves so as to develop new forms of #courage & endurance. Let’s heroically transcend the human condition. Let’s celebrate the scientific victory over #human limitation, while also rejoicing in the beautiful interconnectedness of all things. Like Carl Sagan said, “ #Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of #spirituality.” via #SelfInflictedPhilosophy #meditation
