Can you have a direct experience of God without the need for belief? Russell Targ, physicist and author of The Heart of the Mind, explores how to know God for those who are not particularly prone to belief.
Through his own meticulous research into psychic abilities and personal experience, Russell explains that it is possible to have a direct experience of God or to reside in love without having to believe anything that would be offensive to the discerning modern scientific mind. What we discover is that the idea of non-locality in physics is coherent with what the ancient Vedic and mystic scholars taught 2500 years ago – that if you sit and observe you'll notice that separateness is an illusion.
Central to the teachings of the Buddha, Jesus, Patanjali and many others, the experiential truth that we are all one is now discernible via science as well as through religious or mystical belief.
