1. Sam Harris: On Spiritual Truths
“Many of my fellow atheists consider all talk of “spirituality” or “mysticism” to be synonymous with mental illness, conscious fraud, or self-deception. I have argued elsewhere that this is a problem — because millions of people have had experiences for which “spiritual” and “mystical” seem the only terms available. Of course, many of the beliefs people form on the basis of these experiences are false. But the fact that most atheists will view a statement like Rumi’s, above, as a sign of the man’s gullibility or derangement, places a kernel of truth amid the rantings of even our most gullible and deranged opponents.”

2. Marcus Samuelsson: Eating With a Spiritual Compass
“America, with its history of freedom of religion and the diversity of beliefs that have resulted from that, is in a unique position to reintegrate a spiritual compass into our way of eating. Our food traditions and spiritual experiences may be diverse, but they all establish a common ground and give us a reference point from which to share in each other’s life and to learn from each other.”

3. Steve McSwain: How to Know God Beyond Organized Religion
“Two assumptions are behind today’s blog: 1) That God is and 2) that she is knowable. I call God, God. You might prefer Being, Transcendence, the Eternal, the Mind or nothing at all. I have long suspected Intelligence has many names and aliases. I’m not looking for agreement on these suppositions. Some of you will agree and that’s fine. Others of you won’t and that’s fine, too.”
