In the five episode series, Kosha Countdown to Earth Day, today is Manomayakosha, the thinking, feeling, sensing, earth body.
It’s poetic that both hosts arrived, ready to record, after not having enough sleep and feeling a bit off in the mind. Since these are casual conversations and perfection is not the aspiration, they showed up as they were, playing with language and memory as aspects of Manomayakosha.
Nature is a complete system that reflects our own experiences. When looked at through various filters, the view becomes fuller. The limitations of language yield to other forms of communication, new maps lead to deeper understanding.
Following are sources and quotes used in the show:
Review of The Spell of the Sensuous by Thomas Berry, author of “The Dream of the Earth”
“The outer world of nature is what awakens our inner world in all its capacities for understanding, affection and aesthetic appreciation. The wind, the rain, the mountains and rivers, the woodlands and meadows and all their inhabitants; we need these perhaps even more for our psyche than for our physical survival. No one that I know of has presented all this with the literary skill as well as the understanding that we find in this work of David Abram. It should be one of the most widely read and discussed books of these times.”
Because it was very briefly mentioned, here's one of many links to the Lost Colony of Roanoke.
