We have lost our connection to the wholeness of life and separated ourselves from the wisdom of the ancients and the wisdom and cycles of nature and the universe. This faulty worldview is the basis of most of our problems, because our worldview determines or directs our acti ...more

ORIGINAL THINKING:
A Radical Revisioning of Time, Humanity and Nature
by Glen Parry ****
reviewed by Tracy Marks
An important, much-needed message conveyed in an ineffective writing style and layout

By "original thinking," author Glenn Parry is not referring to innovative thinking but rather thinking which is "reconnected with a deep place of origin."

“Many of us in this time have lost the inner substance of our lives and have forgotten to give praise and remember the sacredness of all life. But in spite of the forgetting, there is still a part of us that is deep and intimate with the world. We remember it by feel. We experience it as a murmur in the night, a longing and restlessness we can’t name, a yearning that tugs at us. For it is only recently, in earth time, that the severing of the connections between people and land has taken place. Something in our human blood is still searching for it, still listening, still remembering. —Linda Hogan” 1 likes
