Awakenings that inspire and expand our view of the world, come to us in many ways, can be enriched by reading various philosophers, scientists, saints, and sages who have opened new perspectives on human nature and the universe. The visions and practices of these pathfinders are available in great abundance. For many, such openings come during prayer or meditation and the proper use of affirmations. We need to expand our understanding of the nature of reality. And there is no better place to start than with science and the mystery of evolution. Let’s embrace experiences that shake our world, and through practice, what they show us can be nurtured and eventually integrated as a permanent aspect of our being.
