“Think upon these things,” admonished the late, esteemed, Indian philosopher, Krishnamurti. His writings and lectures evoked an underlying reality beneath the manifested physical forms. He discussed an energy that not only sustains, but propels, constant evolution or morphing and yet, remains undetected by sensory perceptions.
A scientist as venerated as Einstein claimed he had not made any discoveries with his rational mind. He penetrated beyond thought to an ethereal consciousness, such as imaging himself riding on a beam of light through the universe. These imaginative revelations led to his many prescient theories being validated today.
Paramahansa Yogananda, in his seminal autobiography, The Autobiography of a Yogi, predicted the union of the ancient wisdom from the east with the empirical sciences of the west. One needs the other. Science and it’s scion, technology, without wisdom, will be a destructive force.
We can only hope Yogananda’s prophecy of balance is realized.
