In a scientifically ascendant world, it really is difficult to get a grip on spirituality. Traditionally people have turned to formal religion for answers, but the world of St. Francis of Assisi is long gone, and the Fundamentalists who cling to Biblical inerrancy (the earth was created in 4004 B.C.and the sun revolves around it, etc.) are hardly credible. Easterners are turning to Christianity while Westerners are flirting with Buddhism. Muslims are caught up with politics, and nobody understands Hinduism. Secular spirituality is a big business and has gone ga-ga over pyramid power, channeling, quartz crystals, herbs, personal trainers, chi, redwoods, and Tiger Woods.
