A thought for the 21st century:
It is very difficult to feel fully and completely alive
if one understands oneself
to be part of a fundametally dead universe.
How, then, shall we turn toward life
and discover the unknown depths
of our own aliveness in the process?

our evolving vision...

Turn Toward Life is an interfaith community-without-walls for people who love the Earth, and who have come to understand, each through their own path, that the issues of peace,  social justice and ecology, on the one hand, and the processes of enlightenment, self-realization, salvation and personal fulfillment, on the other, are infinitely interwoven.  Turn Toward Life welcomes people of every religion (and of no particular religious affiliation) who are seeking to lead lives of active compassion, awareness, gratitude, forgiveness and creativity. 

Confronted by world continuously at war, a world of savage inequalities, and a world drifting toward ecological suicide, we seek to nurture in one another a deep reverence for life and encourage one another in a strongly compassionate resistance to the forces of greed and ignorance that are destroying the world.  Taking the advice of the Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., we are persuaded that only a resistance grounded in love and mutual support will last long enough and be creative enough to make a difference.


  
Flash from the Past: POWER -- A Song from 1979 No Nukes Concert in New York City

This 1979 song was prophetic, predicting in its way both the successes of wind and solar energy and the nuclear disasters that would arrive in the coming decades. (Leaks of radioactive waste at Hanford, WA, are a slow-moving and under-noticed calamity on a par with the much more dramatic crisis in Fukushima, Japan.)
