Introduction: Science and Spirit


 
  In the beliefs and teachings of most spiritual institutions or religions, people often specify faith as the basis for experiencing values.  Although faith is very significant within our perspective, Dr. Royal is keenly interested to assist people to know the Truth about spiritual interests.

When faith means that you or I hold onto an opinion of someone else, knowledge of who we are becomes vague.  The Truth is that all of us are children of God.  This means that we are deeply loved and provided with unlimited potential to express some unique and wonderful experience of life.  To know this we do best to let go of the kind of faith that gives us a feeling that something is wrong with us, and that only if we hang onto another’s faith will we escape a drastic judgment.

If one is to experience High Love, great joy, peace of mind, a healing of a relationship or of the body, or feel secure about life now or in the hereafter, to know that spiritual empowerment is taking place exceeds the value of maintaining a stance of someone else’s faith.  This is not to say that faith is not a wonderful and helpful awareness.  Rather it is to say that the best kind of faith to build is the idea that God or Mind has no judgment to impose upon us other than to react to whatever we think and to do so by giving us exact copies of the experiences that we provide the people and environment around us.  This reaction is well described by the familiar words, “What goes around comes around.”

Dispensing with more horrid, cruel punishments or rewards for keeping such a faith, we are given support from deep within ourselves to know that we are unlimited in the ability to express wholeness, peacefulness, beauty, Love, and all the good we can conceive and believe.  The way we do this is by knowing that deep within us is a Presence and Power that we can know directly.  This direct knowing arises as we dispense with the kind of faith that has been given us by others who think that everyone must be either punished or rewarded for their thoughts and actions.

This awareness can be achieved by applying science to spiritual interests.  Often people think that science cannot be a directive for spiritual growth.  However, we are wise to believe, and better to know, that High Spirituality deeply reveres both science and Spirit.

Science and Spirituality work best for us when appreciated equally.  They belong together in a faith that is interested in moving onward into a certainty that God is real, life is good, and all individuals are both worthy and safe.
