"The most important functions of art and science is to awaken the cosmic religious feeling and keep it alive", declared the scientist, Albert Einstein.

There is no need to be concerned about a conflict between science and the spiritual life. People have turned to the spiritual in many ways since the beginning of humanity. Some are tribal and primitive, some are very emotional, some focused on ideas and philosophy, some centred on tradition. It appears there is in the centre of our humanness a spiritual compass. When we disown that orientation we lose some of our humanness.

Life is an exploration into meaning. Whatever we see or hear, whatever happens in our lives may carry a spiritual message. Some will say, "God is telling me something". Others, whose understanding of God takes another form, will say, "There is a spiritual message in this if I can read it."

As the centre of our humanness is restored, we are more alive and life takes on a greater meaning.

We don't have to white-knuckle our way through life. Think about spiritual solutions.
