The spiritual practice of lectio universum speaks to our first and fifth sources. The first source is Wonder: direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder…. and the fifth is Reason: humanist teachings which counsel us to heed the guidance of reason and the results of science…. This video by Max Schlickenmeyer captures the deep wonder that can be found in scientific knowledge.
Neil deGrasse Tyson is an American astrophysicist who speaks eloquently on science, the universe, and everything. His words frame this beautiful video meditation about our connection to the greater whole.
Please find a quiet place to watch and take some time to sit afterwards in contemplation.
