I love to think of the hands it will fall into, the minds it will ignite, the hearts it will embolden, so that this great adventure may continue! ” Joanna Macy, author, World as Lover, World as Self “The Four Global Truths is destined to become an essential part of the ongoing illumination of this wild, groping, confused, but ultimately beautiful human species.” Brian Swimme, Professor of Cosmology, California Institute of Integral Studies As global temperatures rise and natural systems decline, humanity is being forced to confront the darkening shadow of material progress and mechanistic thinking. Meanwhile we can see the dawn of a more enlightened worldview that recognizes the intimate interdependence of all forms of life and all aspects of reality. Between total breakdown and universal breakthrough lies the Middle Way of The Four Global Truths. Using the framework of the Four Noble Truths of Buddhism to address worldwide ecological suffering, outline its causes, and suggest a healing pathway forward, this book also integrates elements of Western philosophy, transpersonal psychology, deep ecology, modern cosmology, and quantum physics in advancing a more holistic conception of Nature and the Cosmos.
