Interview with Peter Kingsley: Remembering What We Have Forgotten

by Richard Whittaker, Works & Conversations, May 21, 2011

Peter Kinglsey: There are lots of people who use the word “challenge” to define what my work is putting on the table–spiritually and philosophically, culturally and historically. But to me it’s all very simple. Most of the problems we have in the West are not due to the fact that at the origins of Western civilization there’s something fundamentally wrong. On the contrary, there’s something infinitely precious at the origins of our civilization. The trouble is that it’s been lost because we started taking it for granted. We’ve gradually let it distort itself and so it keeps on falling down one octave, then another octave of understanding. I don’t really see how anybody on a philosophical, or spiritual, or any other kind of level could object to the challenge to wake up now and take responsibility for what we have been given.

Deep Water

by Richard Whittaker; June 13, 2011

Most of us in the west take clean water for granted. And generally we’re equally asleep to the profound role water plays in our lives. In an interview with Sam Bower of greenmuseum.org [issue #18] I brought up the question of water. He mused, “If you think of what we are, I mean we’re made up of cells and each little cell contains a drop of seawater. In some ways, all the little creatures that emerged from the seas found each other, bound together and found a way of collaborating and sharing the recipe over and over with helpful modifications, and here we are today! Every chance we get to replenish that connection to the seas is just a delight. In some way, it’s a reminder of home.” Sam pointed me to Betsy Damon [see issue#19] who has devoted her life to studying water, to creating systems for the restoration of degraded water and to raising consciousness about what she calls living water. “Basically, higher life-forms like water that has gone up and down the mountain ten thousand times,” she says, quoting an old Chinese proverb. Each of us, if we were to look carefully, would find that some of our deepest memories are intimately connected with water. We need to be reminded of this. Continue reading
