Evolution & Spirituality

This is today's reading from 365 Tao, a book by Taoist author, graphic designer, and martial artist Deng Ming-Dao:









“[Day] 207:::: Evolution:



Organic molecules from cosmic clouds,

Millions of years in the midst of eternity.

We sprang from the primordial;

Our spirituality came in the evolution.

Those molecules were formed from…

The following essay explores a number of key questions regarding the revival of shamanism and other ancient Pagan ways, and outlines some approaches to viable ecospiritual work for today.

What are Miracles?

Do miracles exist, and if so, what are miracles?

The word miracle has come to mean so many things, to so many people. Many people use it simply to describe something unexpected (and positive) happening. Others talk about spiritual transformation.

Now, I know he was raised Christian (non-denominational) and was active in youth groups and outreach, but I also know that he was disillusioned by the hypocricy he saw and calls himself agnostic now. So when he said to me that ... how did… Read More

Is Buddhism a Religion or a Philosophy?

To me Buddhism is a religion - do you agree?



There is a long tradition in the West to regard Buddhism as a philosophy. This tradition was started by Enlightenment philosophers (those who like rational thinking so much) who saw in Buddhism an ancient religion which fit their ideal of a rational way of life.



Most of the people who commented on my debate about this said: Buddhism is a religion, not a philosophy... Did… Read More
