Common Ground: Part Two:  On Enclosure, the Commons, and Awe by Beth Bartlett

“To do so will require changing the way we think, removing the enclosures of our mind – paradigm shift. We have a choice. “By what and how we think,” writes Griffin, “we coerce, confine, distort, and damage or sustain, encourage, create, coax ourselves and otherness into a fuller realization of being.”[xiii] Perhaps the way to coax ourselves into this fuller realization, into removing the enclosures of our minds, begins with restoring our appreciation for vastness — to re-vastate. Regularly taking time for awe we become more open to new ideas, to difference, to our generous natures.”

That last sentence resonated deeply for me.
