Banyen's Description: 

A compelling insight into the impact that external, ecological damage has on the inner self, this spiritual exploration argues that although spiritual teachings reveal that events in the outer world are a reflection of changes taking place in the inner world, there is little awareness and discussion of how this outer darkening is reflected within. The book tells the story of changes that have been taking place in the inner worlds that belong to a collective spiritual destiny and the fate of the planet, changes that are as significant as the ecological devastation even as they are unreported and unacknowledged. It asserts that destruction of the surrounding world, as it continues, is reflected in the inner worlds of all people through a loss of sacred light, and the threat of a soulless wasteland looms large. The book seeks to address readers’ futures as individuals and as a whole, and to inspire people to take responsibility for the earth and reclaim humanity’s sacred role as its guardians.

There is no way we can avoid the effects of our actions, of the pollution and desecration we have caused. We will have to learn to live in a world that is darker, where our soul is not nourished, where an inner beauty is not present. How long this will continue I do not know. Some dark ages have lasted for centuries… But rather than attempting any prophecy I would continue to be aware of what each moment is telling us, watching the signs in the inner and outer worlds just as a sailor would read the winds and tides…

Those of us who are aware of what we were given, of the oneness that was awakening, are needed to hold true to life’s deeper purpose, the unfolding of the soul of the world. We need to stay attuned to the heart of the world and life’s essential message of love, however the drama in the outer world unfolds

We cannot afford to remain ignorant of what has happened, and we have to accept our responsibility. Maybe then we will begin to learn the lesson that life is teaching us. Maybe then we can return to our real world as guardians of the planet and our shared evolution.

Among Sufi dreamwork teacher Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee’s other books are Spiritual Ecology, Return of the Feminine and the World Soul, and Alchemy of Light.
