The Science of Enlightenment | October 11, 2014
It is tempting for teachers to leverage the prestige and power of science to promote a particular religious view. Scientists used to quote scripture. Now religious leaders quote scientific theories!
- Brad Marston, “The Science of Enlightenment”
"We want to sustain the idea of 'me' and 'mine,' and to maintain what we call the ego. We want to keep our story, however miserable it may be, because it is our story, and gives us some sense of identity. But getting closer to a spiritual master means giving up this story of ours, or at least beginning a new story, which is now based on the present, not the past. Therefore, becoming a disciple actually means being reborn."
Sri Prem Baba
