Everyone is familiar with the theory of evolution (first documented in "On the Origin of Species" by Charles Darwin); however, there are also theories and bodies of work in recent decades on Conscious Evolution and how we, as a species, can evolve our spirits and minds to a next state. By the end of the book, this is starting to happen and in the sequel, humanity's "Awakening" begins. Do you believe that if we work together, humanity can connect in non-verbal ways that may lead to a more co-operative spirit?

Pea Doubleu: I'm reading a good bit of Ojibwa/Canadian author Richard Wagamese's work these days, and it occurs to me as I read that the 'evolution' of our species could be aided significantly by returning to a more indigenous understanding of creation, life, land and relationship.
From the book “Keeper'n'me” this passage struck me as relevant:
If you sit there long enough while the sun's going down behind the hills you'd swear you can see those hills move. Like they're breathing. It's a trick of the light really. Or something caused by distance and time and quiet yearning of magic we all carry around inside us. That's what Ma says. Says that magic's born of the land and ones who go places in life are the ones who take the time to let that magic seep inside them. Sitting there, all quiet and watching, listening, learning. That's how the magic seeps in. Anishanabe are pretty big on magic, she says. Not so much the pullin' rabbits outta hats kinda magic but more the pullin' learning outta everything round' em kind. A common magic that teaches you how to live with each other. See them hills breath, and believing it, is making yourself available to that magic. Like leaving the door to your insides unlocked, she says.
If we are going to evolve it probably has less to do with embracing something new and more of a stripping away the technological and economic trappings of 'progress' and then reawakening to Spirit that is present and alive in every single thing. Including us.
