Systemic Wisdom

Sacred futurism supports people and movements that enact sacred fundamental principals in response to the depleting practices of industrialism, agribusiness, factory farming, and irresponsible, unsustainable technologies. We reject the ideology of profit and perpetual growth, as well as the dangerous idea of "survival of the fittest." 

Sacred futurism asserts, instead, that in order to create a better future for all beings we must put care before profit, and embrace balanced, systemic wisdom as an antidote to the delusions and dysfunctions of runaway growth. 


When we begin to see the world as nested systems, we understand the fundamental importance of relationships.  Instead of trying to control the behavior of parts, like cogs in a machine, systems theory reveals a world made up of relationships.  Changing relationships changes the system.

The ancient Navajo Beaty Way emphasizes the "right relationship" because they recognized the all-pervasive systemic wisdom of Nature.  Many Indigenous cultures place more importance on relationships than on individuals.  They experience a deep connection to Nature, and recognize that natural processes flourish though sustainable relationships based on offerings, dedications, and devotion to the whole  

Understanding systemic wisdom helps us to understand Nature's sacred principles.
