when you treat a single lifetime as encompassing the horizon, you cannot form the ambition necessary to perceive the contours of eternity
we are all a part of a vast and holy body, whose lifetime is that of the biosphere entire. but something jealous and deadly divides us, makes us use our individuality against each other, blinds us to the scale of our true form. this foul spirit claims it has lived forever, will live forever, but i tell you with all certainty: this monstrous parasite is dying all around us, and a greater, brighter future stands tall beyond its demise.
@garbados !!! Beautifully put! Reminds me of Joanna Macy's writings on deep time. Such an important thought-muscle to exercise.
