Perceiving the Spirit in the Natural World – Frey Vineyard Jan 2014
Contemporary science, with its focus on the gathering of abstract data as a means for the perception of natural phenomena, tends to promote the view that nature is simply a resource to be exploited. Earlier civilizations tended to see the phenomena of nature as the actions of spiritual beings. This view promoted a reverence for the being-ness of the forces of nature that supported an ethos of conservation of resources. The poet Goethe coined the word morphology to describe his discovery of a method where the observer of nature can satisfy the contemporary scientific requirements of truth in the data while at the same time recognizing the dynamic actions of the intelligence of the forces of nature. This is achieved through the perception of what Goethe called “becomings”. This lecture will address ways to develop the perception of “becomings” in the natural world that lead to an experience of the Spirit in Nature.
