The world needs a mystic's universal and inclusive love, not the exclusive love of a faithful. - Rabindranath Tagore
How do we find it in ourselves to expand our world to include all earth beings, when can we see ourselves primarily as earth citizens and members of a large biotic community?? Maybe being in touch with the mystic’s love within us as expressed by Tagore, we would find it in ourselves to make ethical choices and decisions and move away from speciesism. Maybe it will help to shift away from an anthropocentric focus to a more eco-centric world view…this is what the world certainly needs at this point in time.
