THE EARTH: Genesis—A Spiritual Revolution by Diana Butler Bass

This essay is a thoughtful expression of a long time Seeker’s arrival at a crossroads in her development.

Its particularly interesting because its by someone with a background in the academic study of religion, who has long time personal experience of church going, with an interest in the statistical evidence of the decline of religion on the one hand and growing statistical evidence of the growth of personal spirituality instead.

The writer also expresses a growing personal aversion to the hymns, formulas and affirmations of the churches she attends, though she attends them less and less now, despite being asked to give sermons at them …

I see her essay as further anecdotal and statistical evidence of the spiritual revolution that the mystic experience suggests is guiding human development.

Enjoy!
