“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match
your nature with Nature.”
“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the Universe, to match your nature with Nature.” ~ Joseph Campbell
Here is a man after Campbell’s own heart
– Brian Swimme, talking about "The New Story".
Joseph Campbell would often say that "we need a new myth", one relevant to our times and inclusive of our current knowledge of the universe. Some are calling this "a new story". He thought the famous “Earthrise” photo taken from the moon might be the mythic symbol of our times: a kind of post-tribal sense of our unity. And this new myth "must include the earth." In other words, interconnectivity.
Our entire website is our contribution to the conversation of the new story...of interconnectivity.
Uniting the Science / Philosophy / Spirituality / Technology of INTERCONNECTIVITY
"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
~ Albert Einstein
"And while men in power redefine religion in fundamentalist terms and in support of market fundamentalism, women in diverse cultures mobilize their faith, their spirituality, their power to protect the earth and life on earth."
~ Dr. Vandana Shiva
"In nature's economy
the currency is not
money - it is life."
"You, yourself are the eternal energy which appears as this Universe.
You didn't come into this world; you came out of it.
Like a wave from the ocean."
"But we try to pretend, you see,
that the external world exists altogether independently of us."
~ Alan Watts
"We are interbeings; we are the totality of our relationships, therefore everything that we do affects everything that there is. Anything that happens in the world is happening to us."
~ Charles Eisenstein
"We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody."
~ R. Buckminster Fuller
