True spirituality

  • True spirituality is defined by the skepticism of both today's religions and today's science.  Spirituality is individualistic, and the opposite of dogmatism. 
  • True rationality is open-ended and skeptical about itself even if it does its best, understanding that it is not possible to know everything.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

Spirituality represents a healthy respect for an uncertain reality; looking at an unknown future without making any assumptions; an open mind willing to entertain the absurd.

The term spirituality has one of two connotations: One is a classic religious one; the other is inspired by New Age Culture. Both categories embody spirituality better than cold, hard reason.

There are limitations to what the human mind can understand. The mysteries of the Universe and our conscious experience are too complex to be restricted to words and formulas. 

Religious or scientific dogma is trying to use today's information to understand tomorrow's unknown, knowing that today's information may prove to be wrong.

In a world where we can have complete information about everything, reason can give us certain answers. However, the world we are living in is not even close to having all the answers. In this world, words are fallible. So is perception and imagination.
