“Mystical experience of nature

can be of particular relevance

to our troubled age,

bringing deeper into our consciousness and emotions

the logic that nature sustains humanity as humanity must,

in turn, sustain nature.

Rationality alone, however,

cannot be our guide in the task

of restoring our environment.

A spiritual connection to nature

must inspire the emotional commitment that is the yin, complementing the yang of intellectual understanding.”

-Carl von Essen
