Science Meets Spirit
Science and spirit are not separate disciplines; understanding the truenature of reality reveals where science meets spirit!"Countries like ours are full of people who have all of the materialcomforts they desire, yet lead lives of quiet (and at times noisy)desperation, understanding nothing but the fact that there is a hole insidethem and that however much food and drink they pour into it, howevermany motorcars and television sets they stuff it with, however many well-balanced children and loyal friends they parade around the edges of it...itaches!"Bernard LevinSooner or later everyone starts to ask questions about the nature of reality. We are curious about who we are; we ponder on the meaning of life; we look at the world and wonder what is our place in it. It is easy tobecome dissatisfied and confused with the contradictions betweenscience, religion and the mutually exclusive world-views with which weare constantly bombarded.Most religions teach that we live in a universe presided over by a loving,peaceful and all-powerful God, but fail to explain why immense humansuffering can be seen or experienced in life, particularly in ‘natural’ disasters such as a tsunami or earthquake.Classical science, with its mechanical view of the universe, has failed toexplain phenomena such as telepathy, remote viewing or out of bodyexperiences, to name just a few. These phenomena are far too welldocumented to be dismissed, so they must be incorporated into aplausible world view.
