“We are all earthlings, cracking out of our shell. For that is “the Way” or the Tao of things… to open and bind together, and be in flux, to evolve. The difference is our conscious presence here, can we fully embrace that interconnection? I wonder.”
Something really shined through earlier today. Just a quote from a great discussion on youtube.
What might we want to see in the 21st century? To see ourselves as a natural part of the world. To transform our understanding, of the myth that world is somehow mechanical or a product, to one where we are grown from the world, not “dropped” into it or assembled, and that in one way or another, we are conscious of the way: of flux and flow, impermanence, interdependence, an ecosystem of mind and body, minds and bodies. Is this not the Tao that was spoken of long ago? Born again through the modern lifeworld. If we would only see ourselves as beings in relation to others, and to grow as such in a forest of being. That would be quite a recognition.
