  • The Spirituality of the Earth by Thomas Berry – In our totality we are born of the earth. We are earthlings. The earth is our origin, our nourishment, our support, our guide. Our spirituality itself is earth-derived. If there is no spirituality in the earth, then there is no spirituality in ourselves. The human and the earth are totally implicated each in the other.
  • This Existential Threat Is Not a Hollywood Fantasy By Keya Chatterjee – If they are always considered together, we have a chance of tackling the two greatest threats of our time: poverty and climate change.
  • The Great Grief: How to Cope with Losing our World – The notion that our individual grief and emotional loss can actually be a reaction to the decline of our air, water, and ecology rarely appears in conversation or the media. It may crop up as fears about what kind of world our sons or daughters will face. But where do we bring it?
  • Awakening Is a Destructive Process – Make no bones about it, awakening is not a walk in the park. It is a ride through hell. It is the tearing down of all of your cherished beliefs and everything you thought about yourself. There is no way around this.
  • How To Exit The Matrix By Michelle Walling, CHLC – In order to exit the matrix, we must become aware of our goals as a spirit having this physical experience, heal the energies tied to the karma, and serve humanity and the planet in order to reach our goal of ascension.
  • What Tibetan Buddhists, Andean Paqos can teach us about climate change – As Pope Francis is set to visit US leaders, experts advocate for more diverse spiritual voices in the global climate change discussion.
  • Wendell Berry’s Thoughts On ‘Our Only World’ – Well known as a foe of thoughtless resource extraction, Berry takes on industrial farming and forestry in this latest work. He argues that the extreme technologies humans have now achieved “barter the long-term health and fertility, which is to say the long-term productivity, of local ecosystems for a short-term monetary gain.”

A Spiritual Journey

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles,
no matter how long,
but only by a spiritual journey,
a journey of one inch,
very arduous and humbling and joyful,
by which we arrive at the ground at our feet,
and learn to be at home.

~ Wendell Berry ~

We are all children of the same universe.
