Shri.Satish Kumar famous editor of Resurgence and Ecologist writes “Wholeness and harmony are the foundation stones of a new world view”. My existence is a network of influences. I exist in a web of relationships: in reciprocity, mutuality and community. I am because earth, air, fire and water are. I am because my parents, my teachers and my friends are. I am because Buddha, Krishna and Christ are: they are part of my thinking. Shakespeare is, therefore I am. Beethoven is, therefore I am. Van Gogh is, therefore I am. Gandhi is, therefore I am. You are therefore I am. Worms are, therefore I am.
Buddhists call it co-dependent arising. Hindus call it Soham: “That is me”, and “I am that”. In South Africa they call it Ubuntu: “I am because we are”.
