“Blessed be you, mighty matter, irresistible march of evolution, reality ever new-born;
you who, by constantly shattering our mental categories, force us to go ever further
and further in our pursuit of the truth.”…Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

“By all accounts we are living in a deep cultural trance, unaware of the widespread pathology that has deeply infected us. We have unleashed a vast devastation on the physical body of the Earth. Species are dying at an hourly rate, more than an acre of rain forest is destroyed each minute, and precious, absolutely irreplaceable topsoil is being washed into the sea, along with tons of pesticides everywhere in the world. .. We pretend that someone sometime will solve the problem for us.”

The above is an excerpt from the Introduction page of Earth Story, Sacred Story by James Conlon. Although this book was written in 1994 and environmental awareness is more in the forefront, much of what is addressed in this book is still of supreme importance. Each chapter of the book concludes with a relevant topic for meditation and subsequent questions to ponder and motivate change.

Although this is repetitive and trite at best, if each of us took some small step towards committing to renewing, nurturing and caring for the planet and the life held therein, what monumental course of change could this lead to. We as a human species are driven by model and example, so what legacy of example are we creating. What model of sustainability are we setting and most importantly what degree of responsibility are we willing to assume towards an evolution of harmonious, healthful co-existence?
