Spirituality versus Science

As you progress along your spiritual path there will be times when you have to test the water when it comes to talking about spirituality. I recently did this with an acquaintance I hadn’t seen for a couple of years. Unfortunately I misjudged the temperature! I managed to avoid what could have been an uncomfortable situation for both of us by quickly changing the subject but the brief initial exchange of opinion left me wondering if there are still some people who believe spirituality is totally make believe and when it comes to spirituality versus science, the latter will win.

Science has always been called in to question the existence of spirituality, and equally the debate regarding the science behind it in order to prove the certainty of all matters pertaining to spirituality whether in the context of the Divine, angels, the after-life or aspects of healing such as Reiki, will continue to rage on for many years to come I’m sure. We all know science is used to prove the existence of everything, and without proof we are unable to present a water-tight argument as to whether something is real or not. As a result, light workers struggle at times to explain the wonders of our own discoveries as we attempt to share our knowledge which is based on experience rather than belief, afraid that without the scientific proof many people will remain unconvinced by the whole concept, including the importance of their own spirituality at this time.

So how do we prove spirituality exists? The simple answer is that we can’t. It’s only when we experience some form of spirituality that we truly know. And that’s the point; as your spiritual awareness grows you will develop a ‘knowing.’ This knowing encompasses all to do with creation and Mother Earth. Ideas you imagined as possibilities relating to these suddenly become a realisation as we gain an insight and an understanding, neither of which is based on scientific evidence but yet we know it to be true and real.

Therefore it makes sense that guiding others to the Light through our thoughts and actions is so important. This can be done in such subtle ways and from experience I have found that quietly setting an example, and talking about my awareness only when appropriate is far more effective than randomly discussing my experiences. Sometimes offering a little bit of information when prompted creates more interest than going off on a tangent.

I have developed the knack of judging who might be interested in learning more and also when to keep quiet. Moreover I have been surprised by friends and acquaintances discussing their experiences with me completely out of the blue, and discovering each one of us has been given a different but equally important role to play.

Remember, everyone’s journey is unique and although we are all treading different paths, our destinations remain the same.
