Exploring the spiritual meaning of the ecological
crisis that now faces our precious Earth
From the vantage point of a consumer-oriented
post-industrial society, the changes required to save humanity from
disaster are particularly profound. In the short span of this generation,
we human beings will have to decide how we are going to pass through
this difficult era, whether or not we will survive, what kind of
world we will be leaving to our children. To save the fabric of
life on this Earth, to keep it from unraveling, we need to begin
this work now.
