Science and spirituality: A unique relation
AUTHOR(S): Manmohan Krishna Upadhyay and Dilpreet Kaur
It is commonly accepted that science and spirituality are not compatible. Science is considered our reliable way forward, while spirituality often regarded as a sentimental relic of our past we can’t quite let go of. So to say it is necessary for the two to work together may seem unrealistic. Science uses rational thinking in analyzing and interpreting what experience and experiment discloses, while combines experience with the nearness of an intuition that speaks to a reality that underlies the world conveyed by the senses. Science and spirituality are on a converging course which shares the realization that the cosmos is not a domain of unconscious matter moving about in passive space, but rather, that it is a dynamic, self-evolving, whole, integral in all domains. The scale of our planet’s problems is too great to be solved without an integrated approach of science and spirituality. The power of consciousness needs the systemization of the scientific method, and the tools of science depend on the wisdom and creativity of individual consciousness to guide it in a meaningful direction.
