In this technological age, we are encouraged to believe that science will provide a better life for us and for our children, curing our ills and expanding knowledge.
Confidence in science has gradually eroded faith in older forms of knowledge related to spiritual well-being, as if there were no room in the human heart for both.
Have we gained the miracles of technology and modern medicine, only to lose contact with a deeper dimension of knowledge?
When we are unable to trust in knowledge that embraces spiritual as well as physical needs, we cut ourselves off from all that gives experience brightness and meaning.
Life tends to become flat and dull, our actions driven by habit.
Within today’s most advanced societies, we see symptoms of a deep discomfort that indicate the needs of our inner being are not being addressed.
