Nature knows how to organize itself

“As we can see from simply looking at a flower, nature knows how to organize itself. And this same force would organize human affairs if we would allow it to. This allowance occurs whenever we place our minds in correct alignment with the laws of the universe — through prayer, meditation, forgiveness and compassion. Until we do this, we will continue to manifest a world that destroys rather than heals itself. Iraq is a perfect example.”

Marianne Williamson quoted inĀ Watching the World Destroy Itself by Robert C. Koehler

Ajahn Buddhadasa would agree with this, as he has often spoke of how Dhamma is Nature & Nature is Dhamma, how Dhamma is the Law of Nature (and Buddhist “God”), and saw Dhamma expressed socially in what he called ‘Dhammic Socialism.’
