“The natural world is part of the larger sacred community to which we belong.
To be alienated from this community is to become destitute in all that makes us human.
To damage this community us to diminish our own existence.”
The music is by Hildegard von Bingen, a 12th Century Abbottess, scientist, mystic, musician and poet, who even then was saying “the earth sustainer of all humanity must not be injured…”
