As we start to travel deeper into my new belief system based literally purely upon the scientific method, I stumbled upon this rare gem of an article: 10 Spiritual Things People Do That Are Total Bullshit
I love this:
“Aspects of spiritual bypassing include exaggerated detachment, emotional numbing and repression, overemphasis on the positive, anger-phobia, blind or overly tolerant compassion, weak or too porous boundaries, lopsided development (cognitive intelligence often being far ahead of emotional and moral intelligence), debilitating judgment about one’s negativity or shadow side, devaluation of the personal relative to the spiritual, and delusions of having arrived at a higher level of being.” — Robert Masters
I assure you that I will not be sharing anything that encourages ironically destructive bias (quite the contrary).
“Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. So are our emotions in the presence of great art or music or literature, or of acts of exemplary selfless courage such as those of Mohandas Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr. The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.” — Carl Sagan
Reality willing, we will reach the literal essence of that statement in a purely logical way.
Logic and spirituality are no longer mutually exclusive by any intelligent and civilized reasoning.
