I have been exploring cosmologist Brian Swimme’s eleven powers of the universe to see what our oldest teacher tells us about creating a just and sustainable planet. These are the energies by which the cosmos itself operates. Transformation is one of them, and has been a constant from the Big Bang to today.

It’s not an easy process, but we would not be here without it. The great consolation of all Brian’s powers is that they are ever operating, ever available both to us and through us. We can derive courage and strength from this, knowing we, too, embody these forces.
