global oneness project Intimate, Mutual Belonging I think the industrial growth society or the late capitalist consumer society Joanna Macy - San Francisco, California - Eco-philosopher and Activist is a perfect illustration of the runaway situation you get into when you think that a being--take a human being-- can live separate from his or her world; that a person or a nation or a group can be immune to what it does to the others and the rest of creation; that the assumption that there is an away, that there is a Heaven or a Nirvana or a cruise ship cycling somewhere in between the asteroids that you can go to at the time. That's what's sober and thrilling about being conscious in this time is we realize what we at some level knew all along, and our bodies know it, is our imtimate, mutual belonging. We're learning again to come home to ourselves and to each other. When we do that and realize--that's the main thing; everything else follows from that-- You stop thinking that you can thrive at others' expense, you stop thinking that you can grab now in short-term thinking and not bother about tomorrow. And you open your pores to the evidence all around you that science is helping also to transmit that this is a dance--that we are in a dance of life and we do it together. We do it together. www.globalonenessproject.org - Footage courtesy of the Pachamama Alliance
