Beyond Science and Religion


Is a New Age Coming?

The term, “new age,” has come to stand for a hodgepodge of ideas without scientific legitimacy. And at times the criticism seems justified. It is not easy to see how one proves the truth of such things as magical healing crystals, UFOs, or astrology. On the other hand, it might not be wise to dismiss out-of-hand everything labeled “new age.” A prejudice for or against an idea is still a prejudice. On this installment of Conversations Beyond Science and Religion, I interview Dick Larson, a student of the Ageless Wisdom Teachings and the Ascended Masters, about how a real new age — offering hope for personal growth and transformation — is actually beginning to dawn. But as I write in a recent blog (A Metaphysics for the New Age), the new age still has a fatal flaw: it lacks a metaphysics, an over-arching logical framework in which we can explain and legitimize...

Make up your mind; think positive thoughts; enrich yourself; leave your...

Although few people study it any more, everyone has a philosophy. It could be a philosophy about the role of religion in your life, working hard, staying upbeat, or not caring about anything. Although science today is viewed as the dominant source of authority, science itself was born in philosophy, and it might be helpful to re-examine what philosophy means and how we can all use a little more of it in our lives. On this installment of Conversations Beyond Science and Religion,  I talk with internationally-known natural philosopher, Mark Ballabon, author of Courting the Future: Preparing for a Different World, and Why is the Human on Earth? about how we are all born philosophers, which is to say, born to wonder and to question. When we start using these inborn skills, we can strip away many of our preconceptions about science, spirituality and religion, and perhaps head toward a new...

My short piece, One World, One Life, will be featured on InspireMeToday.com on June 1, 2014. This organization seeks to inspire people with thoughts from people they call luminaries, who are actually people who put inspiration to writing; i.e., any of us. Many household names have contributed to this website, such as Sir Richard Branson (Virgin) and Guy Laliberte (Cirque du Soleil) to thought leaders like Jack Canfield (Chicken Soup for the Soul) and Marci Shimoff (The Secret).  So now it’s my turn. This daily wisdom takes a minute to read, yet acts as a conscious reminder to  spark the fire within each of us: the fire that desires to know more, and to be more.  I invite you to read my inspiration on InspireMeToday.com and browse through the wisdom of more than 1000 other Inspirational Luminaries, and see if it makes a difference in your life.      ...
