“There is One Holy Book, the sacred manuscript of nature.” And there are no Gaian teachers.
Unlike the western concept of God, Gaia is not all-knowing, all-powerful, or all good. Instead Gaia is limited in power, in sentience, and is abenevolent. In other words, unlike God, Gaia is vulnerable. And we are in direct relationship with Her. How does that shape this philosophy? And our understanding of suffering?
