An Extraordinary Life

You would be crazy to busily polish the silverware as your house burned down. Similarly, it is insane to live a normal life in today’s world. Maybe if millions of children were not malnourished, maybe if torture were not commonplace around the globe, maybe if species and entire ecosystems were not dying, maybe if genocide were forever gone, maybe if all the injustices I’ve chronicled in these pages did not exist—maybe then the “normal” life presented us would be sane. Maybe then it would make sense to absorb ourselves in professional sports, soap operas, the stock market, material acquisition, and the lives of celebrities. Given the reality of the world today though, the only life that makes sense to live is an extraordinary life.

— Charles Eisenstein, visionary & philosopher (from the book “Ascent of Humanity“)

The Nature of Our Impact

The healing of this planet is not a matter of humanity stepping out, creating a separate human realm and leaving nature untouched. It will not come through minimizing our impact. It will come through changing the nature of our impact. It will come through a different kind of participation in nature—one where humanity returns to being an extension of and not and exception to ecology.

— Charles Eisenstein, visionary & philosopher (from the book “Climate: A New Story“)

A Deeper Current

Our system moves according to a deeper current, namely – our civillizational mythology. The stories, meanings, perceptions and agreements that constitute what we think to be reality. The world’s healing must and will come from outside the mythology of separation that bought us to the present impasse.

Asking the Right Questions

The problem today is not that we are answering the questions the wrong way. We’re not even asking the right questions. To get to the right questions requires letting go of some of what we thought we knew.
