True sustainability will only come from “thinking outside the box”—meaning the bone-encased box that sits atop our necks. The mind’s story is necessarily rooted in a sense of separation. Feeling separate, we imagine that if we can control enough of the world around us, we will achieve comfort. Of course such comfort is only fleeting. It is time to re-affirm a different, more ancient story: that of connection. This is the realm of the heart, and its perspective is at the core of all the great spiritual traditions.
