We all learned about evolution when we were children. A species that continues to behave in maladaptive ways will either evolve or it will go extinct. And so will ours. Our irreverence, our foolishness, our lack of responsibility towards ourselves, our children, each other, animals and the earth itself are not just wrong; they are unsustainable.
It’s time to stage an intervention on ourselves, to disrupt the pattern of insane perception that has led us to where we are today. We must recognize fear as a false intelligence and embrace the wisdom of the heart.
I read a book called “Into the Magic Shop” by Dr. James Doty, a professor of neurosurgery at Stanford University. The book is partly autobiographical, as Doty tells of a woman he met when he was a child who told him she would teach him “real magic.” And she did. Later in life, as a scientist, he learned how much truth she had taught him…that the heart is as intelligent as the brain. That this is not just poetry, or metaphor; it is science. It turns out the body receives as much direction from the heart as from the brain.
That is the evolutionary trend that will save us. In the words of MLK, Jr., “Power without love is reckless and abusive.” The powers that were meant to save us have harmed us, as far too often and in too many ways they’ve represented power without love. Our technological, financial, governmental, military, physical, even scientific powers have not only not kept us from the edge of the cliff that humanity now stands on. In fact they’ve been used to take us there. It’s time to pursue another kind of power entirely. It’s time to pursue the power of love.
In the words of Teilhard de Chardin:
“Some day, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire.’”
