We are All Part of a Very Long Journey. . .

The Bridge to
According to these traditions [the traditions of ancient wisdom as found in the Upanishads as well as the spiritual traditions of other cultures], the world is indeed a theatre of experience and we find ourselves on its stage in order to learn lessons that can only be taught in a physical realm.

Moreover, we are enjoined to be aware that we have been given a precious opportunity to be born into this world of matter and consequences as human beings (rather than as fruit flies, or slime molds, or cockroaches, or stones).

After all, the whole biosphere is here to support us. Four billion years of evolution on earth have led us to a point where we can make very fine distinctions between good and evil, darkness and light, love and fear – where we can make conscious choices that will impact us and others in profound ways.

This is why, in my view, modern technological society can only be described as demonic. It appears to have been expressly engineered to switch people off to the wider implications, and the wider mystery, of being alive.

It bombards our consciousness with sterile, soulless messages of production and consumption, of envy and greed, that never get to the fundamentals of anything. It seeks to convince us that we’re just meat – just accidents of physics and chemistry – that our only purpose is to produce and consume as much as possible, and that when we’re dead, we’re dead and that’s the end.

I don’t believe those messages! I think we’re part of a very long journey. . .
