This Great Participation

We don’t only have human ancestors, but we also have animal ancestors and vegetable ancestors and mineral ancestors. Our ancestors do not belong to the past - they belong to the present - they are fully present within us. Without them we cannot see the way we see, we cannot think the way we think, we cannot live the way we live.
