Eco-spirituality is based on a fundamental belief in the sacredness of nature, Earth, and the universe. It is also based on the fact that we as humans are not separate from nature, we are a part of it. The belief that humanity is somehow separate and above nature has created many of today's problems in one way or another.
Traditional eco-spirituality is as old as humanity and has been practiced by indigenous peoples since the begriming. Today's nondenominational eco-spirituality as practiced on this website includes yet transcends traditional eco-spirituality.
From the eco-spiritual perspective, Ultimate Reality (God, Spirit, Buddha, and/or the Divine,) is not just the source of creation it is very much also a part of creation; a part with which we can interact on a daily basis through our senses and from such experiences gain greater insight into the wonder of reality.
On a personal level, this inherent sacredness of nature and our complete immersion within it generally leads to a spiritually motivated engagement in the current environmental and global warming crises of our planet (see the Job One for Humanity plan,) and a dedication to the justice and long view of a sustainable prosperity for all.
We will have to develop higher cognitive capacities to resolve complex global crisis that currently threatens us. This higher cognition will include but go beyond analytical/rational thinking, and will enable us to understand and manage complex global systems and processes. Spiritual awakening or higher consciousness alone are not enough to meet these crisis is effectively. But, they are critically important for developing the higher cognition that will enable us to do so.
