Learning Native Wisdom

As life is full of various catastrophes at different levels, the need for some type of stability arises. One of the aspects of intellectual and spiritual discipline involves learning how to discover that stability through learning how to trust the world, and keeping together especially at times when the world appears to fall apart. While the “laws” of Nature may initially be trusted, the same could not be said today, as there already is a certain degree of uncertainty. Scientists today are found to be divided regarding this particular issue, on the subject of which beliefs include that the universe as a living organism has a memory, that the cosmos are evolutionary, and that the changes in appearance and direction arise from randomness. This chapter illustrates the different facets of spirituality in present time.
