College in Garden Grove, CA
We live embedded in the body of the world. Attention is required. Every life is the interweaving of strands of connection to time, place, ecosystem, culture, ethnicity, gender, family, and history. We exist interdependently with all that is. Receptivity to life expands our souls. Closure debilitates our soul. Intimately connected to all life, we're not bound by the web of life. We carry within ourselves the capacity to engage creatively, responsibly and actively in the world. Sometimes this capacity to act is deeply wounded. Passivity holds sway. Dependence dominates.
