Kristoffer “KC” Carter reading from Paramahansa Yogananda’s Autobiography Of A Yogi and discussing the science of spirituality.
We don’t know about matter. 96% of the universe’s mass is unaccounted for. We don’t understand consciousness either. No one is really sure why or how consciousness works. We don’t even understand time – we don’t know when or how the universe began, and we’re not even clear how it will end. There are theories for all these phenomena, but nobody is quite sure. Spirituality is not an exact alternative to science, but it does seem separate from science. I’ve considered myself an atheist for many years; nonetheless, I find myself spending a lot of time with people who have a more grounded, less performative sense of spirituality, which I’m curious about. So, what does it mean to someone who’s made spirituality the very foundation of their life?
KC, short for Kristoffer Carter, is a coach for C-suite executives and start-up founders. Since becoming a coach, his true focus is on mindset – mindset that flows from spirituality.
