An objective spirituality

In many religious traditions God is seen as infinite, all powerful, perfect and beyond change and growth. In stark contrast the universe is evolving an ever expanding consciousness often through excruciatingly painful struggles. Our mathematical and scientific understanding suggest God is an unfolding creative process that may expand without limit. We are the evolution of consciousness becoming aware of itself and beginning to acquire the power to take conscious control of evolution.

Science divorced itself from religious prejudices and used experiments as the ultimate arbiter of scientific validity. With objectivity as its guide science has laid the groundwork for the technological achievements that empower us. Spirituality and values have developed much more slowly. We lack the wisdom and spiritual insight to use the enormous power that science is creating. By integrating spirituality and science it is possible to construct an objective spirituality. This can support development of our values and spirituality at a pace comparable with the achievements of science and technology. It can help lead to the wisdom we desperately need in this extraordinarily dangerous moment of evolutionary transition.

From this standpoint God is not a completed being but an ever expanding process of evolving consciousness. We, as the highest form of consciousness on this planet, are the eyes of God with the power to create the world through conscious control of future evolution. We cannot make decisions about this based on religious or spiritual feeling alone. History teaches us how badly our feelings and instincts can lead us astray without objective tests. Science has shown what miraculous progress is possible with the guiding star of objectivity.

Equating the existence of physical structure with conscious experience is the starting point of an objective spirituality. It establishes a framework for reconnecting scientific understanding to values by connecting structure to essence.

It implies that we are and always will be the merest hint of a shadow of what will be. Precisely because there is no ultimate or final goal but only an ever expanding horizon we must always value the experience of the moment for that is all that will ever exist.
