Religious experiences without religion?

Apparently, both the religious and nonreligious can receive, dare I write, revelations of truth, commonly referred to as religious experiences. A growing body of statements show that people of all backgrounds have experienced extraordinary moments of transcendence.

For millenniums, these extraordinary moments have been interpreted through religion and thereby are usually referred to as religious experiences, however, nonreligious folk are able to experience and interpret the experiences in their own ways and words, yet an underlying similarity exists: moments of wholeness, light, peace, understanding. Without fear.

These moments of embracing love are available to everyone. How can we better share them?

      I’m glad you checked out Healing Science Today website. Thank you for all the good you are doing. I thoroughly enjoyed being a Christian Science Journal listed practitioner for 12 years. I think you’d like to read my memoir “I Am My Father-Mother’s Daughter”
