At the heart of such hard-edged boundaries is fear.
from A New Harmony: The Spirit, the Earth, and the Human Soul
by J. Philip Newell, p. 15, Kindle edition
This sentence is from the Prologue, and comes after several examples of the deep fragmentations that are driving humanity to the edge of destruction: racism, religious bigotry, greed. Newell proposes a radical shift in our understanding of our relationship with the physical world and with each other. I enjoyed his earlier book, “Christ of the Celts.” I’m hoping this one is at least as good. Even if it isn’t, I expect to learn a lot from the discussions as Sisters in Spirit discusses the book.
