The themes for tonight’s show are transcendence, fullness, and connection.  I’m really grateful that it isn’t religion, though with a name like Spirit, the connection will undoubtedly be made.

I think it’s healthy to reexamine pretty well everything periodically, and so I make myself read all sorts of things.  This morning I read Reason in Exile by Sam Harris.  He argues that all religions (even in moderate doses) are potential sources of irrationality and brutality.  And I suppose he has history on his side.  But he also writes that, “There is no denying that most of us have spiritual needs that a mere understanding of our world, scientific or otherwise, will never fulfill.  There is clearly a sacred dimension to our existence and coming to terms with it could well be the highest purpose of human life.”  I like that, from his perspective, these opinions are not in conflict with one another.

For this morning, I have no further comment.  But I’m looking forward to getting out of my own head on the subject.  Spirit : Illuminate the Intangible/View the Invisible, tonight at 7pm.
