in Field of Compassion, you unite the Universe Story and the Chris-tian Story from a theological perspective and tell us that salvation is not about "me" or "we," but about the cosmos as a whole. In essence, what we need to be “saved” from is our own egocentricity, that part of us that is rooted in fear and sustained by our effort to control. Egocentricity makes for a very small “me.” It fosters the illusion that we are separate from others. It fails to see the connectedness that is the foundation of all life. It does not grasp that “all that is” is sustained by relationship

We are who we are through connection, not through separation. We are participants in an immense creative event.

One way to speak about creation is to say that it is the ongoing single action of the Spirit. From the Big Bang forward, through the evolution of stars and galaxies, to the emergence of life on this planet in all its forms, as well as in the ongoing expansion of the cosmos, the Holy One is at work – pulsating, pressing from within this single creation, enabling it to become more and more and more. I think it is critical that we get this point.

There is only a single creation, the one in which we live and move and have our being. Therefore, any notion of salvation that imagines anything smaller than “all that is” is deficient.

Because life is so intricately interwoven, not one of us is saved until all of us are saved.

Salvation in this context is a single process involving the whole of creation. Now, for that to happen each one of us must accept responsibility to evolve personally as completely as we can.

Each of us must engage the capacity for autopoiesis – literally “self creation.” Each of us must become as fully human and fully alive as we can.

And by doing that we become human beings capable of connection in healthy, creative ways – ways that contribute to the evolution of the species and the cosmos.
