Participatory Spirituality for the 21st Century
"We do not 'come into' this world; we come out of it, as leafs from a tree.
As the ocean 'waves', the universe 'peoples'.
Every individual is an expression of the whole realm of nature,
a unique action of the total universe.
This fact is rarely, if ever, experienced by most individuals.
Even those who know it to be true in theory do not sense or feel it,
but continue to be aware of themselves as isolated egos inside bags of skin."
