Science/Spirituality

“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 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

War?

War is the spectacular and bloody projection of our everyday living.

We precipitate war out of our daily lives

and without a transformation in ourselves,

there are bound to be national and racial antagonisms,

the childish quarreling over ideologies,

the multiplication of soldiers, the saluting of flags,

and all the many brutalities that go to create organized murder.

— Krishnamurti
