Post modern spirituality

Why I call myself post-modern

For me the most important aspect of post-modern thought is the rejection of worldviews that do not hold up under the light of critical thinking or have become irrelevant to the needs of the contemporary world. We are in a period when the old mythologies that were ( and in some places still are ) the basis for cultural values, norms, and social identities are being eroded by advances in the sciences, the availability of education, globalization, and the deconstructionist mind set of the twentieth century. For the first time in human history we are becoming aware that there is more that unites us than divides us. We are developing a new ontological ground from which to address the ancient questions of our species: 'What are we', 'Do we have a purpose', 'Is there anything after this life'. For me these questions lie hidden in our bio-psych-social journey not in the superstitions of the past. Art starting from this new horizon will be how we re-image ourselves and set the path for the continuation of the human journey.
