Science and the Sacred

Science and the Sacred

One of the insights of the great traditions has been that our inner nature is also lawful, even though the laws ... is that the cosmos, in addition to its physical and biological aspects, also has spiritual aspects, as do human beings.

Einstein said the best scientists have always approached science as a sacred activity that could yield "the secrets of the Old One," Ravi Ravindra points out. This eloquent book at once affirms scientific exploration and addresses the failure of science to deal with the inner life. We all want to know why things happen and how we can control certain outcomes; but we also rightly wonder about meaning and purpose: Does the earth need people? What about me personally? What is my place? Why am I here? Coming from the East, this Western physicist offers a rare hybrid view on such topics as: Perception in yoga and physics; The moral responsibility of scientific power; Science as a spiritual path; Healing the soul: truth, love, and God. "Each of us is an artist of our own life," Ravindra says. "Starting from the raw material of our self, we sculpt something which corresponds to our aspirations, our understanding, our skill and sensitivity...This work of transformation is an imperative of our human existence."

The miracle of God’s love and communication for humanity is unfolding now in our time, and you are amongst the first to find it. The Word and the Sound are in the world again. We are living at a time of Revelation. The One God is a book of the New Message from God, a new revelation given by the Creator of all life to the human family through the Messenger Marshall Vian Summers. The New Message is an original communication from the Creator to the heart of every man, woman and child on Earth. This communication is here to ignite the spiritual power of humanity, to sound God’s calling for unity amongst the world’s nations and religions and to prepare humanity for a radically changing world and for its destiny in a larger universe of intelligent lie. In The One God, we are given a new vantage point from which to understand and to experience the Divine Presence in our lives and in the world. From this new vantage point, we can glimpse back to the origins of the universe and come to understand the great Separation from God that gave rise to the evolution of all life and that ultimately explains our presence in the world at this time. The One God is a calling and a communication from the Heart of God to you. In the pages of this book, God’s Presence calls to you and to all people, calling for you to awaken from the dream and the nightmare of living in Separation apart from your Source, calling down through the Ancient Corridors of your mind to the spiritual presence and power that live within you, waiting to be discovered.

Rediscovering Reverence

Rediscovering Reverence

In chapter 4, we began to see how the world's great religious traditions complement and complete each other. ... for both sides ofthe human paradox, spiritual life needs the insights and contributions of all its many connecting streams.

Drawing on familiar experiences as well as aspects of western and eastern spiritual traditions, Heintzman argues that religious practice is rooted in two basic ways human beings act in the world. It is therefore an element in the structure of the human spirit, not a phase in its history. Explaining the meaning of religious practice in contemporary language, Rediscovering Reverence is addressed to anyone who wants to explore the meaning and promise of a religious life. A unique and thoughtful meditation on the role of reverence in everyday life, Rediscovering Reverence presents new perspectives on modern faith, religion, and both personal and societal well-being.
