Getting in touch with your higher being

I recently read a great blog post titled "religion for the nonreligious" on Wait But Why. I highly recommend it. The author articulates complex ideas around religion, wisdom, happiness, getting in touch with our higher-selves in ways that are easy to understand. Some interesting quotes to ponder:

  • The mind…can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven. ― John Milton
  • I . . . a universe of atoms . . . an atom in the universe. —Richard Feynman
  • If we ever reach the point where we think we thoroughly understand who we are and where we came from, we will have failed. —Carl Sagan
