I wanted to share another TED Talk with you — Jeff Lieberman, an MIT-trained artist, scientist and engineer, makes a scientific argument for mystical experience. He asks us to challenge our perception of what we are, our relationship to the universe, and our relationship to one another. Our minds are “thought-generating machines.” What we would happen if we could turn off the machine? If we could transcend our individual experience of the world?
Most of you know that I am a very spiritual person, but I believe in science as well, and I do not believe that the two are mutually exclusive. Do you?
They’re certainly not mutually exclusive as far as I’;m concerned. In the least, it’s a scientist’s spirituality or sections of it that usually lead him or her to new discoveries…
I’m spiritual and believe in science….
Big like…just so hard for many to accept that it might even be true. Thank you for sharing!
Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Hugs, Barbara
They go hand in hand Barbara.. and Science is at last catching on.. 😉 xxxx Hugs Sue xxx
This so reminds me of a beautiful book I just finished and am starting over again, The Untethered Soul by Michael Singer. He talks about getting away from the “thinking” of the mind and clearing a path for the freedom of the soul. At least that’s my initial take on it!
I love your site, Barbara. I’m new to blogging and love your site and beautiful words. Thank you. Namaste.
