Religion and science seems against each other. Religion is all about belief. Science is all about the truth. Belief exists because we don’t know, so science comes to help us know more about belief. You don’t have to believe in any ideologies anymore if you experience the truth. You don’t have to believe that the sun rise from the east. You have already experienced that.
Some usually are against all religions that they exist for nothing. No prove for them but if you see the different side, you might see that science must be responsible for not proving them.
So, science should play more roles for this, and nowadays we have already seen that so many branches like biology, psychology and quantum physics help us a lot to clarify the religious mysteries. Of course, these help you understand yourself and the nature a lot.
However, there are some reasons you should not depend on them too much.
- You have to rely on the scientists: You can understand yourself right here and now without any degree from the university and have experience in experiment in the laboratory. You are both scientist and the laboratory. With meditation, you give yourself time and explore what you have done normally so well that you have ignored it so far like breathing. It is your own experience that cannot be completely shared through words and picture but silence.
- Modern science focuses on the analysis: The flower exist to share happiness and beauty. Experience it “directly” through your sense not through the filter like the
- It takes time: especially the quantum physics…you have to wait for the advance to understand clearly that matter can be the energy and vice versa. You don’t have to wait for years to understand it. You can do it now. Give yourself time to sit still silently, close your eyes and watch whatever happen to yourself with awareness. Then you find it before the future scientist.
You my not have any knowledge about psychology, biology or physics. That is fine. What you need is yourself to find the truth. It is the individual experience that cannot be shared even to the scientists.
