“The natural world is the larger sacred community to which we belong. To be alienated from this community is to become destitute in all that makes us human… We are talking only to ourselves. We are not talking to the rivers, we are not talking to the wind and stars. We have broken the great conversation. By breaking that conversation we have shattered the universe. All the disasters that are happening now are a consequence of that spiritual ‘autism’.”
I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert… to give drink to my chosen people , the people whom I formed for myself so that they might declare my praise.
Isaiah 43:19-21 (NRV)
