We live in a world where many people insist on making decisions based on facts and not on opinions or on perspectives. But the idea that a fact is a fact is in fact an illusion. Even Marcus Aurelius knew it when he produced the following quote: “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.” And modern scientists in the quantum physics area can tell us that nothing that is observed is unaffected by the observer. It means that everyone sees a different truth, because everyone is creating what they see ~ Neale Donald Walsch. So if you actually create the reality that you think you see, what is then the value of a fact? It is in fact always subjective. So be careful with your observations, because you might think they give you new ‘observable’ insights but what someone observes is always in the eye of the beholder. Want to get better insight from you observations? Share it with others and ask their opinion too. Together you make better or at least more complete observations. But always be careful with decisions made on just a few observations or on the illusion these observations can be earmarked as plain, undisputable facts. Have respect for the Unknown and embark on developing the Sensed in combination with the Known. This will give you a much better balanced decision support context.

The article “The lifting of the veil” states: “We currently inhabit a Science paradigm. Science seems to operate from the smallest verifiable level upwards towards the heavens, whereas the Spiritual community comes from the largest down to the smallest. One major difference being that science is based on being able to verify and duplicate “Facts” whereas spirituality is based on Faith and is seemingly at odds with science. Faith is the drive within humans for something beyond metaphor. Science says there is nothing beyond metaphor.” I wonder which metaphor science has for the situations as shown in the pictures, where faith seems to play a major role. And there are lots of daily situations where you just don’t have the time for scientific approaches and therefore you have to rely on faith.
So I believe science has it’s part in helping our world getting better, but I also believe spirituality can play a part in creating a better world. Both science ans spirituality can easily benefit from eachother provided they are willing to learn from each other. Or as the Pateo academy states: “Science without spirituality is dead and without soul. Spirituality without science is fantasy and ungrounded.”
Given all this, what could we do? Suppose you are facing a situation where scientific approach doesn’t directly help you further, you might try a spiritual approach, for example by letting your intuition decide for you instead of decision making based on scientific proof. It’s not that difficult at all. It requires only a bit of faith and a bit of practicing. Happy experiencing!
