Religion and spirituality are today at odds, and in many ways religion has lost contact with its base—spirituality. As we try to reconcile the objective world out there with our own subjective experience of it, the split between what religion says and what our spirituality reveals can become even more acute. Yet because our very humanity is itself spiritual, we can make humanity great again through a renewed spirituality.
In Awakening: Renewing the Spiritual Dimension of Humanity, author Danny Kinane explores this apparent rift between spirituality and religion and instead posits that there is a transformative and important alignment between our human experience of the world and our own sense of spirituality—and that advancements in modern science, especially in quantum physics, can tell us something about this spirituality. With both personal accounts of his own journey as well as discussions of Eastern and Western philosophy and spirituality, Kinane invites fellow seekers to discover with both faith and logic how they can awaken and reclaim their spirituality.
A secular faith that incorporates rationality, science, community, philosophy, and spirituality can free us from the confines of our egos and offer us true meaning. We need only realign our humanity with our spirituality, finding in the subjective world a world of faith, love, compassion, forgiveness, peace, and unlimited energy.
