ECOSPIRITUALITY TO CHANGE THE WORLD
We consider Ecospirituality to be the answer to the suffering and problems on this planet.
Ecospirituality is to be understood as a philosophy that presumes an individual person having a harmonious relationship, arising from his or her inner harmonious experience, in tune with Nature, which is understood not just to be a manifestation of its natural cycles, but also to be a mystic concept and depositary of a great cosmic mystery.
We consider that inner balance is not derived from a pre-packaged doctrine, but is related to a pragmatic experience offered by nature, through the activation of its spontaneous evolutionary archetype, which we call meditation.
Ecospirituality means respect for Mother Earth and for all the life she has generated and to which she offers hospitality.
Nowadays, it can be seen how the rights of those Peoples who are in tune with nature, the Natural Peoples, have been trodden underfoot.
Just as the daily massacre of animals can be observed, animals used as “objects” for the benefit of the dominant species, humanity. We daily witness the destruction of our planet, our common home: Mother Earth, who generated us.
For this reason we founded the Ecospirituality Foundation: to make a contribution to a better world. A world of Peace and Harmony respecting the Planet and all its creatures.
This is why the Ecospirituality Foundation supports the UN project:
Protect the oceans and the marine ecosystem
Protecting forests and biodiversity
Promote peace among peoples
The “Sustainable Development Goals” Project
Resolution adopted by the General Assembly on 25 September 2015
Transforming our world: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
From the document of the UN General Assembly:
Seventy years ago, an earlier generation of world leaders came together to create
the United Nations. From the ashes of war and division they fashioned this Organization
and the values of peace, dialogue and international cooperation which underpin it. The
supreme embodiment of those values is the Charter of the United Nations.
Today we are also taking a decision of great historic significance. We resolve
to build a better future for all people, including the millions who have been denied
the chance to lead decent, dignified and rewarding lives and to achieve their full
human potential. We can be the first generation to succeed in ending poverty; just as
we may be the last to have a chance of saving the planet. The world will be a better
place in 2030 if we succeed in our objectives.
What we are announcing today – an Agenda for global action for the next
15 years – is a charter for people and planet in the twenty-first century. Children and
young women and men are critical agents of change and will find in the new Goals a
platform to channel their infinite capacities for activism into the creation of a better
“We the peoples” are the celebrated opening words of the Charter of the
United Nations. It is “we the peoples” who are embarking today on the road to
2030. Our journey will involve Governments as well as parliaments, the United
Nations system and other international institutions, local authorities, indigenous
peoples, civil society, business and the private sector, the scientific and academic
community – and all people. Millions have already engaged with, and will own, this
Agenda. It is an Agenda of the people, by the people and for the people – and this,
we believe, will ensure its success.
The future of humanity and of our planet lies in our hands. It lies also in the
hands of today’s younger generation who will pass the torch to future generations.
We have mapped the road to sustainable development; it will be for all of us to
ensure that the journey is successful and its gains irreversible.
