033 Scientific Naturalism
What is scientific naturalism? Scientific naturalism is the view that, based on the evidence, the natural world is all there is, and that science is the best means of knowledge about this world. Scientific naturalism is the foundation on which Bodhidaoism is built. If you donâ€™t agree with scientific naturalism, then Bodhidaoism is not the spiritual path for you. Bodhidaoism is the only systematic personal religion that is based on scientific naturalism which incorporates the best insights of various religions and philosophies.

034 Turning 55
I am turning 55 today. In this episode I do some reflecting on my spiritual journey and my path from Christianity to Buddhism. June 21st is also the celebration of Buddhism in Bodhidaoismâ€™s Wheel of the Year. I talk a little about the problems of Christianity and Buddhism. I also reflect on what Buddhism means to me and why I consider Bodhidaoism kind of like a Buddhism 3.0.

028 Deconstructing God
The concept of God can be deconstructed into four aspects: fate, personal ideal, ultimate concern, and reality. For me, the word God does not stand for all of these. Specifically, I donâ€™t believe in a personal God. I see God as more of a metaphor for the laws and rhythm and flow of the Universe. I think Tao is a better word for this than God. Reality is the Cosmos, the Cosmos is the Tao when referring to its significance and our relationship with it. Fate is the Tao, for the Cosmos is indifferent to us. The personal ideal then is turned into the hero and the heroâ€™s journey.
