Spiritual Quote of the Day (Lisa Miller, on Two Threads Within Spiritual Life)

“Scientists don't define spirituality—we identify threads within human spiritual life. Two threads stand out. The first is our capacity to have a relationship with the sacred. People may call this God, the universe, a higher power or the force of life. It is the capacity to feel loved, held and guided, that we are never alone. The second thread is to share this with others.”— Lisa Miller, clinical psychologist and director of the Spirituality Mind Body Institute, Teachers College, Columbia University, quoted in Elizabeth Bernstein, “Bonds: Spirituality in the Lens of Science,” The Wall Street Journal, Aug. 18, 2021
