SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 24th: Rational observation makes it abundantly clear that reason alone is not sufficient to inspire the changes we need to save ourselves and our planet. If it was sufficient, we wouldn’t have let things get so bad. Cultural and religious myths and stories have long served as a cohesive and a driving force for societies, and most likely what is needed to lead us towards a more promising future. For many people, the prophesy of the condor and the eagle is such a story. True or not, belief in it has created real, concrete results already and provides an example for what is possible.
