The blog entry below is a specific application of the principle of using crises to facilitate the life-affirming evolution of civilization. This perspective is part of a larger spiritual activist narrative described in another piece I sent to my list a few days earlier, which I posted on the co-intelligence.org website rather than this blog. I now use it as a major source of my own inspiration, for I, too, often lose touch with that particularly powerful Big Picture. Take a look at “Something Bigger than Life is Trying to Work Through Us” http://co-intelligence.org/SomethingBigger.html. As the nature of evolutionary activism is a major inquiry of mine at the moment, I expect more postings will be showing up here on that subject during the coming months.
