"I think, then, that there is the possibility of the transformation of consciousness, both individually and collectively. It’s important that it happened together – it’s got to be both."

IL + MIL

"The systems view of life is an ecological view that is grounded, ultimately, and spiritual awareness."

IL + MIL

"Those championing sustainability recognize that the human economy is embedded in the living earth."

IL + MIL

"Becoming a form of human being that is as natural to the universe as the stars or the oceans: knowing how we belong and where we belong so that we enhance the flourishing of the Earth community."

IL + MIL

"Not in the service of any political or social creed should the teacher work, but in the service of the complete human being, able to exercise in freedom a self-disciplined will and judgment, unperverted by prejudice and undistorted by fear."

MIL

"An education capable of saving humanity is no small undertaking; it involves the spiritual development of man, the enhancement of his value as an individual, and the preparation of young people to understand the times in which they live."

MIL

"Only when space and time are reconciled into a single, unified field of phenomena does the encompassing Earth become evident, once again, in all its power and its depth, as the very ground and horizon of all our knowing."

IL

"Education is, at its best, a dialogue in which each participant becomes both teacher and learner."

IL

"Knowledge is not just something to be stored and talked about; it’s something to be lived."

IL + MIL

"A universal revolution is what we need. This revolution requires only that [humanity] should raise its values and become the master, instead of the victim, of the environment [we ourselves have] created."

MIL

"The fact that individuals share so few common associations for a given word, image or ideas means that we are all magically and eerily different from each other."

IL + MIL

"The whole of creation must be a single, enormously intricate web of interconnected vibrational patterns"

IL + MIL

"The openness and creativity that influence a system’s evolution will also affect the evolution of the environment."

IL

"It is my belief that what we should cultivate in our teachers is more the spirit then the mechanical skill of the scientists; that is, the direction of the preparation should be towards the spirit rather than toward the mechanism."

MIL

"The more sensitive and knowing we become, the richer and larger becomes our reality."

IL

"Learning should not be an effort for children, a burden, or a tedious duty performed for the sake of the approval of someone in authority."

MIL

"Love is conceded to humans as a gift that is directed for a certain purpose and a special reason and, in that, it resembles everything lent to human beings by the cosmic consciousness."

MIL

"When we do not trouble ourselves about whether or not something is a work of art, if we just act in each moment with composure and mindfulness, each minute of our life is a work of art."
