With the end of the Mayan calendar now upon us, I would like to offer some thoughts regarding where we have been, where we are going, and what this may all mean for our present lives and the future of humankind. The more aware we are about the choices we make, the less likely we will contribute to the coming chaos and confusion that inevitably characterizes such periods of intense change. It is my hope that this will shed some light and facilitate healing during this time of transition.
The Old Ways No Longer Serve Us
Genuine science, once a valuable tool of inquiry, has been hijacked by corporate interests on the one hand and fundamentalists on the other. Scientific fundamentalism, or scientism, is a belief in science backed by religious fervor.
Scientism seeks to place science at the pinnacle as the one and only true source of knowledge. As such it sees itself as discreditor of all forms of religious authority and spiritual belief, which it deems superstitious.
In anointing science as the only source of reliable fact and truth, scientism ironically makes itself over into a fundamentalist form of religion. And one of its favorite targets has been alternative medicine, which it considers to be unscientific.
Several hundred years of scientific conditioning have convinced the majority of Westerners that they cannot trust their own internal sense of things, their own intuitive judgment, their own experiences. In short, we have come to believe that the only "facts" are the external facts "proven" by science.
The modern world is divided between reason and faith, as if there is no alternative to these two extremes of scientific certainty and blind trust. But there is another very simple and powerful form of knowing. This is the knowing that comes from personal experience.
