Several things impress and encourage me as I read the excellent piece on planes of development and the comments so far. The whole concept of planes (fields, spirals, whatever) is so pertinent to everything DTJN is about. But, beyond that, how wonderful for me, formed in the “school” of Teilhard de Chardin-Thomas Berry-Miriam Macgillis-Brian Swimme-Mary Evelyn Tucker, etc., to realize how many other approaches exist; the message needn’t be — and isn’t — a “monoculture”! Here, too, diversity brings strength. This is both enlightening and challenging (or maybe frustrating) as it’s hard to find time to explore these other paths, all so enticing! It’s also heartening to discover that things familiar to me (like the Earth Charter) are sometimes new to others, so I don’t have everything to learn!
