Spiritual Humanism

Spiritual Humanism

I ordained as a spiritual humanism minister a while back (no big deal… just an online form!!!). However, I decided to do this as spiritual humanism fits well with my personal belief systems of having no religion, broadly being a humanist, but really appreciating that we are all part of the universe and all energetically connected to it and each other, as a scientific fact. The Physicist’s Eulogy by Aaron Freeman expresses this so well, is incredibly touching and fits for so many people, regardless of their beliefs. It will be read at my own celebration of life.  ‘…all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you…’

At a wedding I conducted yesterday, the following beautiful Neil DeGrasse Tyson quote was one of the readings:
‘The most astounding fact is the knowledge that…. the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centres of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life.
So we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth chemically and to the rest of the universe atomically.
That’s kinda cool! That makes me smile… It’s not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us.
When I reflect on that fact, I look up (many people feel small because they’re small and the universe is big) but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. There’s a level of connectivity. That’s really what you want in life, you want to feel connected, you want to feel relevant, you want to feel like you’re a participant in the goings-on of activities and events around you. That’s precisely what we are, just by being alive.’
