From our dear friends at Kosmos Journal… An interview with Charles Eisenstein and a chapter from his book, Climate, A New Story.
“As to what kind of spirituality is needed now, it is to take seriously the experiences and perceptions that we have relegated to the “spiritual” realm and to reincorporate them into the material. It is to embrace non-quantitative ways of knowing. It is to move past the old mechanistic view that saw human beings as the only full subjects in the world. It is to explore the universal indigenous perception that the world, and everything in it, bears consciousness, beingness, and some form of intelligence and purpose. Then we no longer need to impose our own intelligence on the world, but we seek instead to listen for and participate in something greater.
“Any activism informed by this kind of spirituality will help change the ground conditions that will determine the life or death of this planet.” – Charles Eisenstein
