“God is Alive, Magic is Afoot” ~ Leonard Cohen
“In order to free our world from its present nightmare of materialism and exploitation, we need a new story — a story of oneness and interdependence, of cooperation rather than competition. But to make this transition we need a power, the magic that belongs to life itself. How can we find this magic to give birth to a new story of oneness, of the earth as a living, self-sustaining whole, full of beauty and wonder?
“There is a new story and it’s also a very old story…. This next story is not going to be just a human story, and it’s not going to be on our terms, because it’s much bigger than us. If there is a new story, it is a life story, and it is being born because life is always being born.”
