I came across this quote this morning.
"What can educators do to foster real intelligence? ...We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine Earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation, and wildness." David W. Orr
This is a beautiful concept. Not altogether different from what Christ was teaching. I don't expect a consciousness awakening that has everyone thinking this way but those of us who are trying need to do the best with the understanding we have.
