Artists, scientists, spiritual leaders and economists gathered in Amsterdam in 1990 to explore the emerging paradigm of a holistic world view and the implications for a global economy. The five day conference, Art Meets Science and Spirituality in a Changing Economy was inspired by the artists Joseph Beuys and Robert Filliou, and manifested by Louwrien Wijers, who called it a “mental sculpture.”
We need peace like never before in our world. Sadly, intrapersonal, interpersonal, intracommunity, intercommunity as well as international peace continues to elude us!!! Yet all it takes to achieve peace is a mere paradigm shift that focuses on the well-being of each other at all levels. You guys are on to something priceless. Thank you for sharing, Eric.

Thomas Merton, Author
“You do not need to know precisely what is happening, or exactly where it is all going. What you need is to recognize the possibilities and challenges offered by the present moment, and to embrace them with courage, faith and hope.”
Here are a few more of my favorites from Thomas Merton.
“Life is this simple: we are living in a world that is absolutely transparent and the divine is shining through it all the time. This is not just a nice story or a fable, it is true.”
“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone – we find it with another.”
“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves and not to twist them to fit our own image.”
“To be grateful is to recognize the Love of God in everything He has given us – and He has given us everything. Every breath we draw is a gift of His love, every moment of existence is a grace, for it brings with it immense graces from Him. Gratitude therefore takes nothing for granted, is never unresponsive, is constantly awakening to new wonder and to praise of the goodness of God. For the grateful person knows that God is good, not by hearsay but by experience. And that is what makes all the difference.”
“Our idea of God tells us more about ourselves than about Him.”
