"You must have shadow and light source both." ~ Rumi
Proverbs reminds us – “There is light at the end of the tunnel.”
Yet the tunnel fills us with a darkness so deep, we are left breathless, hopeless and lost in our suffering. It’s a black hole of hopelessness...

From the Nova Web site: “How does the 'intelligence' of an ant colony or the stock market arise out of the simple actions of its members? Scientists describe emergence, a science that studies how complex patterns and behaviors arise from the actions of individual units acting independently.” www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/
Our new challenge is to reinvent our civilization. The major institutions of the modern period, including that of agriculture and religion and education and economics, need to be re-imagined within an intelligent, self-organizing, living Universe, so that instead of degrading the Earth's life systems, humanity might learn to join the enveloping community of living beings in a mutually enhancing manner...

The Gaia hypothesis is not a simple assertion that could easily be proved or disproved. Instead it is a complex statement with multiple levels of meaning, like a work of art. At the simplest level, it asserts that this planet is characterized by the capacity for self-correction that characterizes living organisms, the maintenance of continuity by corrective variation. The composition of the atmosphere and the temperatures of the planet over time, for instances, are not accounted for by the laws of chemistry and physics alone, but apparently by processes of self-regulation within those laws. The Gaia hypothesis deepens the sense of the planet as developing, as having a history. Wiggling...
The reason the Ecospiritual movement emphasizes the integration of personal/spiritual growth and intellectual development derives from the way knowledge itself is understood within the new paradigm. The dominant worldview tends to imagine the human mind in terms of a disembodied rationality, passively receiving information and analyzing it to arrive at an objective representation of the world. The last hundred years of science, however, has revealed that the universe consists of an intricate web of interdependent relationships and processes...
If we can learn to communicate with our bodyminds, we can tap into our body’s own language to better understand and facilitate healing. Pert has come to believe that emotions are the key to coordinating all the parts of us into a harmonious and healthy whole.
Science tells us that Earth created very particular and important sensitivities, perceptions, and skills in women. The wisdom of a woman living a healthy, safe, and fulfilling life is a cosmological event. When women are allowed to be fully human, population falls, families stabilize, and local economies thrive. When she is not allowed to be fully human it is not only a humanitarian crisis but a cosmological crisis. A unique aspect of the world is squelched...
