One Reality

There are not two realities. There is one glorious and beautiful reality. We have many ways of experiencing and perceiving this reality. Science and religion are two major ways of perceiving reality, and at times they may appear to oppose one another, but reality is one. No single view of reality is complete, or comprehensive. We cannot know everything, but we can perceive that there is an everything and it is not divided against itself.

Reality conveys itself to me through beauty. By reality, I mean existence itself, as it is. By beauty, I mean that which awakens me from illusions. The natural world is beautiful. Love is beautiful. The arts and sciences can be beautiful. In science and in religion I see and revere the absolute beauty of the one reality that is not divided against itself.

Where do you see the beauty of one reality? Where do you see divisions?
