ENVISION THIS: A book “written with love: love of life, love of the beauty, wonder and sacredness of the earth and all its species, love of humanity and the sublime expressions of its creative spirit and indomitable courage, love of family and close friends, and love of the mystery of the cosmos, both visible and invisible

Such a book is The Dream of the Cosmos: A Quest for the Soul by our guest, Anne Baring.  Anne reveals, “the universe as an organic, sacred and indivisible whole in which humanity, the earth and all life on earth participated as ‘her children’.” She believes—and helps us to believe—“Mortal danger is forcing us to take a great leap in our evolution that we might never have made were we not driven to take it by the force of circumstances that we ourselves have created.”

Come listen to Anne Baring, who says, “Healing the wounded heart of humanity is about cherishing in every sense: cherishing our own lives as having infinite meaning and value; cherishing the time given to us in order to discover our true direction in life and who we truly are; cherishing the body which has been sacrificed for so long to our distorted image of spirituality; cherishing the lives of the people who have been given into our care; cherishing the planetary life which is the greater field of all our endeavours. Love calls us to caring, solicitude, insight, gentleness and understanding but also to strength, power, and intelligence used in the service of humanity and all species on the planet. It calls us to make conscious and contain the desire for power, control and dominance that are rooted in the opposite of love—in fear.”  Anne has kindly agreed to share many more such insights with our Envision This listeners.
