Cultivating a Planetary Perspective | April 22, 2015
You can instill a view, but then
there actually have to be processes like meditation that shift the way
the mind relates to others. You can't just say a lot about how we're all
connected; you have to actually offer tools for how you would become
more aware. . . . It's not just, you know, "love thy neighbor." That's a
great sentiment, but how?
