Spiritual and Religious ideas…

“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and it’s beauty.”
~Albert Einstein

One of the most important criteria for any complete education is skepticism.  Systems of beliefs and articles of faith should be rational considerations, even if they may include existential ideas or parameters. Why limit ourselves? 


“Science and religion are compatible, declares Einstein, the famous physicist.  Incourage1 his essays, Einstein views science as the basis for a “cosmic” religion, embraced by scientists, theologians, and all who share a sense of wonder in the rationality and beauty of the universe.”

In the course of his career, Einstein  wrote more than 300 scientific and 150 nonscientific publications. These essays date from the 1930s and 40s.

In direct, everyday language, Einstein develops a coherent view that transcends the antiquated religions about fear and modern religions about ethics. Albert’s concept of a cosmic religion combines science and religion, with science forming the basis for a more enlightened religion.

In essays on aphorisms, Einstein muses about pacifism, disarmament,
and relativity.  His schematic view transcends myths, gods, devils, dogma, worship and prayer tokens. He also appreciated Spinoza’s metaphysical semantic acrobatics…

“The religion of the future will be cosmic religion.
It will transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology.”

~ Albert Einstein

In considering Abrahamic traditions, Deism, Atheism, Agnosticism and Existentialism… I’ve found the isms overrated.

When it comes to philosophy and religion, I’m a gardener
who loves to read, write and plant a few seeds.

The blessings we bestow upon one another (a nod, wink, or a hug) are more important than prayer and more essential than worship.  Love matters, an’ a good heart.

The rest is commentary, art, science or fiction…

Dreams, dreamers and dreaming

Imagination, visions and where we are going…

You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.  I hope someday you’ll join us. And the world will live as one.
John Lennon

“Hold fast to dreams,
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird,
That cannot fly.”
Langston Hughes
