Product Description

Product Description

The premise of Greening of the Self is that we are not individuals separate from the world. Instead we are always “co-arising” or co-creating the world, and we cannot escape the consequence of what we do to the environment. Joanna Macy's innovative writing beautifully demonstrates that by broadening our view of what constitutes “self” we can cut through our dualistic views and bring about the emergence of the “ecological self”, that realizes that every object, feeling, emotion, and action is influenced by a huge, all–inclusive web of factors. Any change in the condition of any one thing in this web affects everything else by virtue of interconnectedness.
Greening of the Self is visionary and future-oriented, making it essential reading for anyone who wants to discover the knowledge authority and courage to respond creatively to the crises of our time.
Based on a chapter in Joanna Macy’s bestselling World as Lover, World as Self.

5.0 out of 5 stars All There Is 26 Mar 2013
By Daucus carota - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Please read this book. There is nothing derogatory about "being green" and loving creation. It is a short text which wraps a ribbon around ourselves as human, created, spiritual, and most importantly, as just one cog in the works of Creation. Joanna Macy is never preachy - she's a Buddhist! - she is sincere, loving, wise and whole. We are "greening ourselves" all over the world! The earth is asking us to speak up, not to hide behind chainsaws and investment portfolios, fracking and driving our energy on the blood of the earth. The legs we cut down are our own, the water we poison is the 99% of which our human body is constituted, the money in our bank is paper. The earth has given us everything we need, and the West just sees the earth as something separate - not as the All There Is it is. Read this.

Short. Succinct. Essential. Powerful. Macy's passion, wisdom, and commitment inform each word. Begin here and pass it on. Just do it.

Although, Macy gives a Western perspective on Buddhism, she mirrors what a lot of Indigenous ways of knowing. A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars An intelligent look at how one's sense of self is defined. 4 Aug 2013
By Mark Arneson - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A uniquely stated perspective on how altering one's view of self, by including the environment and all other
Living things, changes what survival and self interest mean.
