Listen to the experts.

…we should reclaim the word ‘expert’ – literally, one who has experienced. According to the accounts of such experts, this vision is transformative. It induces, their example tells us, a humility before the greatness of the cosmos, and how little we understand it; compassion for others and ourselves; and reverence towards the living world.
It allows us to acknowledge that there is something way before, behind, above, and beyond our selves; that that something is not inert or remote, but ‘speaks’ to us and calls to us to respond, and that we feel the need to do so with seriousness, reverence and gratitude. And that is what gives meaning to life.”
