Just thought I share something interesting I read recently, this is by Rachel Naomi Remen, a MD that has worked in the field of mind-body medicine:
"The mind has its limitations. When we are mentally identified, we have a tendancy to deny that which cannot be understood. But much of what can be experienced and known can never be understood. In valuing the rational as much as we do, we suffer from a culture-wide tendancy to rejet mystery, to ignore the spiritual dimensions of life, or to delegate spirit to others who we believe are better equipped to deal with it. It is our deepest nature. There is no situation that is not a spiritual situation, no decision that is not a spiritual decision, no relationship that does not have a spiritual basis. All life is sacred. Life itself may serve some unknown purpose in which we all participate, knowing or unknowing."
