We are myth-making creatures and during the twentieth century we saw some very destructive modern myths, which ended in massacre and genocide [and ecocide].
These myths have failed because they do not meet the criterion of the Axial Age. They have not been infused with the spirit of compassion and respect for the sacredness of all life…….
…..We need myths that help us venerate the earth as sacred once again, instead of merely using it as a resource. This is crucial because unless there is some kind of spiritual revolution that is able to keep abreast of our technological genius, we will not save our planet.
