Our vision and our hope for the flourishing of the Earth Community in these challenging times 

Defend the Sacred

Living Earth: Cooperation With All Beings 

‘All human activities, professions, programs, and institutions must henceforth be judged primarily by the extent to which they inhibit, ignore, or foster a mutually enhancing human/Earth relationship.’-Thomas Berry 

“Nature does nothing in vain.”- Aristotle

"We must all widen our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."- Albert Einstein

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."- Margaret Mead

Hopelessness or Eruption of Hope?

We can all fall in hopelessness and despair or we can ask of ourselves: How can we harness our creativity, ingenuity, insight and ability to cooperate and take actions in the interest of the common good,  recognising that we need to live more sustainably, fostering hope that indeed, yes, we can build a better world?

Is there any hope for a more sustainable world? Can we reimagine a way of living in which the nonhuman world matters also? How might we inspire hope and empower action for a sustainable and environmentally just world, with special concern for the most vulnerable members of the Earth community, or facilitate deeper understanding of human responsibility for care of our Sacred Earth?

In that spirit of ‘The Eruption of Hope’, here's a selection of related posting from the gcgi.info from the past years, in honour of Earth Day, April 22, 2018.

Eruption of Hope: Every Sunrise Brings us New Hope

In this time of crisis on our beloved earth, it is my sincere hope that, these offerings will intimately connect us to the land with presence and reverence to heal and strengthen our hearts. We will learn from nature’s perennial wisdom teachings on change, inter-dependence, sustainability, regeneration and more.  Moreover, I hope, we will be able to explore the interconnection between our inner and outer landscape and experience how nature touches and evokes many beautiful qualities including hope, joy, peace, wonder and love.

EARTH DAY

Harmony arises when we seek Wisdom and Beauty...When we merge open heart...Stillness and space with sacred world...In sacredness arises HOPE...in hope arises the desire and imagination to build a better world...by touching the earth, combining our inner spiritual path with the goal of creating an environmentally sustainable and socially just human presence on this planet.
