Spiritual Questions

One day back in the late 1980’s in the midst of my graduate studies, I began to search for a root cause to our social and ecological challenges. My reflections brought me to surmise that our violence toward one another and toward our planet, Earth, is largely driven by how we answer the questions: “Who are we?” ,“Where are we?” , “Why are we here?”, and “How are we to be here together?”

As I articulated these questions, I realized that they are the great spiritual questions humanity has struggled to address from the dawn of consciousness.

I realized, too, that how we answer those four questions is greatly influenced by the way we answer another question, “Who is God?”
