"And the emotional crisis is that unless you’re a superhuman, you could turn numb to some of these impacts. We have a sense. We ought to be feeling something as a child that somebody lost a life. But if we’re watching every single day on the news, it’s not so easy to mobilize that response. I think it’s fair to say that we’re struggling to feel the passionate scale that we would need to, to actually address some of these problems of our time. We need to grow into a way of thinking and being such that we can try and hold that complexity in our hearts and minds, and then act with real conviction, not just to solve a problem but to change the world here, how we imagine it, how we’re living together."
- Jonathan Rowson, Co-Founder & Director, Perspectiva; GPC Spiritual Civilization Gathering & Members Meeting, October 2018
Perspectiva was created because we believe efforts to change the system will continue underachieve unless they are grounded in a deeper understanding of the immunities to change built into the paradigm. We need to work at a more subtle level to shape its evolution.
