Eco-Spirituality / Indigenous Nature Religions

Native American

"Indians experience and relate to a living universe, whereas Western people - especially scientists - reduce all things, living or not, to objects. The implications of this are immense. If you see the world around you as a collection of objects for you to manipulate and exploit, you will inevitably destroy the world while attempting to control it. Not only that, but by perceiving the world as lifeless, you rob yourself of the richness, beauty, and wisdom to be found by participating in its larger design."

From: Where the buffalo go: How science ignores the living world.

This section is under construction. I would be delighted to hear of how other spiritual paths relate to environmental issue. Please contact me.
