Be humble for you are made of earth, be noble for you are made of stars.
Everything is fluid. Just as the clouds in the sky remain ever-changing, ideas about spirituality, personal belief systems & philosophies, priorities and sexuality will often shift as the years pass. You soul is always evolving. Go with the flow.
The dawn was apple-green,
The sky was green wine held up in the sun,
The moon was a golden petal between.
She opened her eyes, and green
They shone, clear like flowers undone,
For the first time, now for the first time seen.
there are stars whose light only reaches the earth long after they have fallen apart. there are people whose remembrance gives light in this world, long after they have passed away. this light shines in our darkest nights on the road we must follow.

Yes, when the drop falls into the ocean, it is certainly dying in one sense, it is dying as a drop. And in another sense the drop attains for the first time to the great life—it lives as the ocean.
Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality. When we recognize our place in an immensity of light years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual. So are our emotions in the presence of great art or music or literature, or of acts of exemplary selfless courage such as those of Mohandas Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr. The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.
