"Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality." Carl Sagan
Evolution Spirituality is based significantly, but not exclusively upon the direct physical and objective observation and physical experience of the universe as a whole and as a unified system. It grounds, supports and balances subjective personal spirituality for the first time from a whole systems, integral and physical universe-framed objective perspective. (If you are not familiar with the postmodern concept of the three kinds of reality (objective, subjective and inter-subjective,) and their specific domains of application we recommend you click this link and read this page before continuing.)
It holds that even though the physical universe may not be the ultimate end of the spiritual discovery and exploration process, it is the first, most direct and most common objective collective space wherein individuals can explore and test their subjective personal spirituality and then agree upon what common or universal spiritual values and meanings they have discovered in an open and reasonable manner. Direct, objective observation of the patterns of the physical universe has always been the source of our oldest spiritual wisdom and practical principles for living.
"A religion that stressed the magnificence of the universe as revealed by modern science, might be able to draw forth reserves of reverence and awe hardly tapped by traditional faiths. Sooner or later, such a religion will emerge." Carl Sagan
Now because of the many new universe-scaled discoveries by modern science it now has once again become the surprise source of the newest and most life-affirming spiritual wisdom and practical principles for living (as found within the perspectives and principles of new Universe Evolutionary Worldview.) Direct observation of the physical universe may also be the most optimized way to know the nature, purposes of the Origin and Original Source of the physical universe in that directly observing the fruit (the universe,) of any seed tells you a lot about the nature, purposes and destiny of that seed.
In truth, all that we can REALLY know objectively about Ultimate Reality is from direct observation of the physical universe. What this means is that the new Evolution Spirituality found at Universe Spirit incorporates the wisdom of both object science and subjective personal spirituality to create integral well being on all levels.

In this new and evolutionary Evolution Spirituality you will not have to abandon your rational/factual left brain and the objective scientific facts of reality while also seeking optimal well being, deeper meaning and meaningful values and wholeness through personal exploration of humanity's great spiritual wisdom and tools. You will always also be able to honor and wisely integrate the intuitive and subjective right brain's wisdom, myths, metaphors, values and the other the many life-affirming ideas from the world's great spiritual practices and religions.
In Evolution Spirituality you can and do both! Evolution Spirituality allows you to use your whole brain's capabilities while you are trying to better understand your own origin, nature, purpose and "destiny" as well as the universe's. You do not have to deny either part of your brain's natural capabilities ---- either the objective rationality of the left brain or the subjective, intuitive and metaphoric value and meaning-making found on the right side of the brain.
"The relationship worked out between science and religion will determine the destiny of the human race." Alfred Lord Whitehead
Evolution Spirituality will also always encourage you to incorporate and begin with in most cases a science-grounded universe perspective and scale to balance and integrate the objective, rational left brain capabilities with the subjective, value and meaning making capabilities of the right brain for a deeper, broader and more useful view of universe reality and consequently a richer personal spirituality too!

This section is one of the most important sections in understanding how objective science and personal subjective spirituality are integrated and balanced!
"Not only was the observation of the universe the source of the first religion, it is also the source of our oldest spiritual practices. Because of the re-integration and re-grounding of today's cutting-edge sciences the universe has once again become the "new" common and leading source for re-aligning and expanding personal spiritual practice. The universe's own evolutionary process is now doing what no religion on the planet has previously been able to do namely --- to evolve a universe-grounded planetary meta-spirituality (Evolution Spirituality,) that balances and integrates humanity's current sciences with its vast heritage of spiritual wisdom." Lawrence Wollersheim
