Spirituality vs. science: which path to choose?

Few years ago I did not believe in God. I believed in science, logic and facts.

3 years ago I went through unbearable pain and depression, and, not having other options, I started to pray “to whoever is out there”. And it was when I started noticing first synchronicities and answers to my prayers: random books, people, movies and conversations.

One year ago I started to be obsessed with spirituality: awakening, angels, full moons, twin flames, taro readings – I knew everything about it.

Few months ago I stopped caring how to call it.

And by “it” I mean the life force, God, Higher self, karma, or, scientifically named, selective focus.

I mean that background feeling, that knowing that we are not just our body, and life is not just a sequence of planned actions.

That faith that everything will work out. That strong believing in oneself. That passionate, enthusiastic trust in life.

I’ve been participating in spiritual gatherings. I’ve been reading scientific books and watching scientifically proved experiments. I’ve been following spiritual teachers, praying to God and angels, meditating, attending “change and transformation” events – all kinds of stuff the one can imagine.

And I could not answer the question: Do I really believe in Law of attraction, God, and that we create our reality and that God has a plan?

UntilI recently realized that I dont need to define and label it. I just have to trust.

You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.

Steve Jobs

Humans will always look for something bigger than themselves. Be it religion, politics, science or philosophy. People will always seek answers, trying to figure out who they are, why they are here, and how it all worked out when they thought it won’t.

But no matter how we call it – there is one common truth in all approaches:

We get what we are looking for. We see what we are.

We have a free will to chose our thoughts, feelings and actions. Based on these choices – we build our beliefs. Based on our beliefs – we build our life. And it doesn’t matter how we call it. It just works.
