Most forms of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam–not to mention more “eastern” modes of thinking, have gone down this path pretty much wholesale–that this earth is not our Home–a kind of alienation from the world. Salvation is beyond. I call this the “bad” idea that took over the world. My next book, once The Lost Mary is published in English, is on this topic. I prefer Robert Frost’s line Birches: The earth’s the right place to be; I don’t know where its likely to go better…” Here is a lecture on Youtube on this topic I gave some years ago.
