Feeling, Art and Sustainable Civil Society (excerpt)

"The exercise of expanded empathy, which allows us to identify with the experience of the intangible other without loss of self, is the exercise of moral imagination... Each becomes part of the Beloved, as the Sufi poets say. This implies an unus mundi -- a conscious participation within the ground of being. The recognition of ourselves as interdependent within a multiplicity of interrelated systems, which together form a whole, leads to a consciousness that includes other species, forests, bodies of water, and people who live on the far side of the world whom we have never met. The capacity to feel for the most distant and seemingly unrelated other arises when we can transpersonally conceptualize and feel ourselves a part of the whole."
