Over the last decade or more we have become more and more aware of the ecological damage our materialistic, energy intensive civilisation has being doing to the ecosystem, how we have been destroying the fragile balance to the web of life that has sustained humanity and the myriad of interdependent living beings for millennia. "e;Global warming"e; has now become a part of our collective consciousness, together with species depletion and other forms of our accelerating ecocide. Yet, while spiritual teachings tell us that the events in the outer world are a reflection of changes taking place in the inner worlds, we appear to have little awareness of how this outer darkening is reflected within. This book tells the story of changes that have been taking in the inner worlds that belong to our spiritual destiny and the fate of our planet, changes that are as significant as the ecological devastation even as they are unreported, unacknowledged. There is a spiritual tradition of witnessing and this book is a witness to the darkening of the light as our continued ecological destruction is reflected in the inner worlds by the loss of the light of the sacred. With this darkening we have lost the opportunity for a global shift in consciousness, an awakening into oneness that was possible at the beginning of the new millennium. Instead our inner and outer worlds are becoming more and more of a soulless wasteland. This story of our collective destiny, however painful, needs to be heard if we are to take responsibility for the earth, if we are to reclaim our sacred role as guardians of the planet.
