"When human beings lose their connections to nature, to heaven and earth, then they do not know who to nurture their environment or how to rule their world -- which is saying the same thing. Humans destroy their ecology at the same time they destroy one another. From that perspective, healing our society goes hand in hand with healing our personal, elemental connection with the phenomenal world."
--- Chogyam Trungpa ... The Sacred Path of the Warrior
It seems to me that the more man becomes civilized, the more he/she looses his naturalness. And as blessed and exciting technology is ... it forces us to become less aware of our surroundings and the interrelationships of life. If we lose the imagination, mystery and magic ... can loss of passion be far behind?
