Ever since I was introduced to Thomas Berry’s work in 2000, his thinking has informed and enriched my own beyond measure. For this essay, I chose one of my favorite of his ideas: that we expand our vision beyond our treasured texts to include Earth herself as our primary source of revelation.
“We need to go to the earth, as the source from whence we came, and ask for its guidance, for the earth carries the psychic structure as well as the physical form of every living being upon the planet.”
I spend a lot of time doing just that, so it was a perfect fit.
