Gaia is the word for "unity-of-life-processes". The experiment here is to unify the various threads of voice and sense of self together into an undivided unity. Spirituality, economics, politics, science and ordinary life interleaved.

On Responsibility

Forming a few thoughts out of disparate inspiration:

- Intention is what defines an act, not the act itself.

- Intent is impersonal, a field effect which is triggered by constancy of action, association, and familiarity.

- People are only responsible for acting, not for intention nor result.

- The results of an action are up to life in the full itself.

- The world is pretty much autonomous; it doesn't need you or yours to get along just fine.

- We don't own anything, not even our experience of life

- We steward our lives for the good that emanates out of it, and because the value of life is revealed by an intention of stewardship.

- If the overall aim is simply to be the best one can be, then failure is not possible.

Some good, some empowering thoughts here!
