Quote of the Day

Today’s quote is dedicated to Lonesome George:

“We are the children and inheritors of a culture that has banished God to heaven.  Early Christianity persecuted and ultimately largely extinguished any earth-based spirituality, and the physical world became a place of darkness and sin.  Then after the age of Enlightenment, the prevailing world view that grew out of Newtonian physics framed the world as an inanimate mechanism we could easily master, indeed were meant to master; we simply needed to discover its laws to tame it to our own ends.  As a legacy of that view we have developed a materialistic culture that treats the earth as a commodity that exists to serve our own selfish purpose.  Our greed now walks with heavy boots across the world, with complete disregard for the sacred nature of creation.”

Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee, Prayer of the Heart in Christian & Sufi Mysticism
