The longest journey is the journey inward.

— Dag Hammarskjold

Good intentions and technical skills, essential though they are, will not be sufficient to make us into the educators, doctors, statesmen, scientists, and artists needed in the future. In this I agree with the assessment of the ecologist John Milton, who maintains that political, legal and economic approaches to progress simply do not go deep enough. ‘By themselves they won’t bring about the penetrating changes in human culture that we need for people to live in true harmony and balance with one another and the earth. The next great opening of an ecological worldview will have to be an internal one.’

— Arthur¬† Zajonc, Meditation as Contemplative Inquiry
