Science and Spirituality Collide

4am Rumination - Spiritual Awakening Is a Choice


If physicists are right, and there is a superposition of infinite [all] possible realities at every single point in time, then at least one of those possible realities must be such that it is pure, random luck that the universe's underlying information and energy coalesced into a reality with no need for a higher power - a reality where as a spiritual skeptic we resided, and rightly so.


If that is the case, then consciously choosing to adopt a spiritual perspective selects a reality containing a higher power and all of the benefits thereof, as that, too, is at least one of the infinite possible realities available to us at any given point in time.


It would be in this very moment of Choice that we could say that we had a Spiritual Awakening - not by discovery, but by virtue of our choice.


Given the proven clinical benefits afforded those in recovery whose belief system possess a spiritual element, it would seem counterproductive to choose otherwise.


Incidentally, this would also explain how those choosing to adopt a spiritual perspective begin having experiences aligned with that new reality, thus reinforcing their decision.


If you would like to confidently choose to adopt a spiritual perspective to realize its myriad benefits, you may be interested in attending our intensive 4-day workshop taking place March 3-6, 2022 in sunny Naples, FL.

I think this is a very intriguing perspective. I do feel everyone would benefit from living a life that includes any sort of spiritual belief. But, what will enrich that the most is to really spend time pondering your beliefs. As a Christian (though I’d likely be considered a quite unorthodox Christian, as I believe most religions share the same God and/or godly/otherworldly beings, but over time, and people’s own personal experiences, many religious cultures have been formed… I mean, how could I believe that, let’s say Ghandi for one example.. I refuse to believe he would not be going to heaven/afterworld just because he wasn’t specifically a Christian). I believe people of all walks of faith will be meeting…
