Digital Spirituality: Its Rise and What It Means for Spiritual Identity, Belief, and Practice
This book examines the influence of digital culture and technology on religion and spirituality in the 21st century. It helps us explore the spiritual afterlife in new and highly useful ways. Digital spirituality offers us a way to live on beyond our physical presence on earth, not just as a digital legacy, but in the forms of digital consciousness and digital soul. Digital spirituality also provides us with a way, while we are still alive, to improve and prepare ourselves for the journey beyond. As we use the digital world, and experience its intricate web, it changes what lies inside us. Our spiritual consciousness deepens and broadens, offering us a new experiential bridge to the previously unknown. Just as we work with God in co-creating our lives on earth, we can work with God in cyberspace to co-create our afterlife. The prospects of digital spirituality are at once exhilarating and terrifying. The 19th-century philosopher Soren Kierkegaard reminds us, "Without risk, there is no faith." Our faith is worth the risk, and Digital Spirituality helps us risk a new spiritual understanding to strengthen our faith in the 21st century.
