The Earth is in distress and is calling to us, sending us signs of the extremity of its imbalance through earthquakes and tsunamis, floods and storms, unprecedented heat and drought.
And some of us are responding to these signs, hearing this calling, individually and as groups, with ideas and actions-trying to bring our collective attention to our unsustainable materialistic lifestyle and the ways it is contributing to ecological devastation, accelerating pollution and species depletion. Yet, sadly, much of this response comes from the same mindset that has caused the imbalance: the belief that we are separate from the world, that it is something "out there," a problem we need to solve.
The world is not a problem to be solved; it is a living being to which we belong.
These are excerpts from Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee's
recent book, Spiritual Ecology - The Cry of the Earth. Join Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee and me on Thursday, March 31st at 8:30 am Los Angeles, CA time (PDT). We'll be discussing his book, his description of the challenges we confront and his call to action, a call to action that will heal humanity, the world we live in and the Earth that is our home.
