I’ve got this dream that today’s generation is in the process of nurturing a widespread spiritual revolution.
We are the generation of tolerance, of activism, of reflection… we are post-modern, post-Western, post-Internet, post-privacy, post-globalization. In my vision, we could eventually become post-consumerist, post-Northern, post-war.
Our generation is marked by technological saturation, but not necessarily satisfaction. We have the impression that everything is attainable by science, and yet the mystery of happiness remains elusive. What does that mean? For me, it implies that we are on the brink of a grand, rapid, frightening and ultimately liberating disillusionment. It implies an imminent loss of trust in dishonest capitalism where true costs are rarely considered, and a questioning of the blind faith that many have placed in the buzz words “growth” and “development.” It implies a harsh realization that superiority, and even difference, are purely social constructs used to mask the fact that all humans are… human.
I’m hoping that this ideological implosion will give life to a phoenix of more intimate and sacred spiritual seeking. Imagine a Search that is as personal as it is interpersonal, a quest based on critical introspection that simultaneously recognizes and reveres the reflective capabilities of others, and which thrives on the pleasures of sharing this experience.
