"A new order on earth will not begin"until we all learn to see the pollution in our own hearts. And that will not happen until many of us, a critical mass, experience with remorse, a real change of consciousness."

"Well-being and wholeness depend on, and exist in constant and complex intimacy with, the well-being and wholeness of the Earth.
