Your Brain on God!
Throughout history and across cultures, religious mystics have shared certain common spiritual experiences of unity, love, ineffability, and insight – regardless of which religions they represented. The human brain seems to be wired for such experiences, as if we possess an antenna for the divine in our heads. But these experiences are not just available to the monk meditating in a cave; we can engage in the same contemplative practices of prayer and meditation. Small notes in the novel, The Jericho Deception, “Maybe we can experience God – not intellectually, but emotionally. We will never understand God, but maybe we can taste the presence of God.”
