  Issue 2: Understanding Wisdom
Living in wisdom happens when and where coherence is achieved between these groups and the rest of the society, as in the case of ethnic communities or areas influenced by ethical enlightenment and devotional movements.
I believe that the role of wisdom is to harmonize the individual’s well-being with that of the whole world, including not only all other living beings but also the natural environment which sustains all vegetation and all living beings.
Thus, though wisdom seems to be an abstract thing, it depends on the concrete ability to work with one's own hands in order to gain firsthand experience of life and to sustain oneself in an individual capacity without depending on being employed by other people or organizations.

 Wisdom of the Elders
If I am not mistaken, this publication will be hailed as one of the greatest milestones in the history of modern man. The work represents a meticulous and well-documented gathering of sacred stories and traditions from over 22 different indigenous and native cultures of our contemporary twentieth century world.
The earlier, pre-contact ecological infractions that took place certainly were done without the terrible technological leverage of modern Western infractions.
In our view, respect for Native spirituality and the nature wisdom embedded with in it is inseparable from respect for the dignity, human rights, and legitimate land claims of all Native peoples.

 The Ecological Wisdom of Enjoying Raw Foods by Don Weaver
In my ongoing search to find ways of living, and eating, which might be optimal for human and total ecological health, I discovered the brilliant health educator Herbert Shelton and his great books elucidating the art and science of health called Natural Hygiene.
It is about the simply revolutionary practice of "health by healthful living," and describes the natural, healthy relationships we have to all parts of Nature: food, water, air, sunlight, soil, plants, trees, animals, our bodies and total living environment, and our fellow human beings.
You may begin now to note the still greater lifting of ecological burden which occurs in the transition from mainly cooked vegan to raw vegan diet and agriculture/orchard culture/permaculture.

 The Ecological Crisis: A Common Responsibility, by Pope John Paul II
Moreover, a new ECOLOGICAL AWARENESS is beginning to emerge which, rather than being downplayed, ought to be encouraged to develop into concrete programs and initiatives.
The most profound and serious indication of the moral implications underlying the ecological problem is the lack of RESPECT FOR LIFE evident in many patterns of environmental pollution.
On another level, delicate ecological balances are upset by the uncontrolled destruction of animal and plant life or by a reckless exploitation of natural resources.

 Reason Magazine - The Exotic Species War
This new rainforest, less than 150 years old, is an affront to conventional ecological wisdom that species must co-evolve in order to function together.
Instead the Ascension rainforest supports the dissident notion that species engage in "ecological fitting." That is, species make the best of what they have.
Ecological puritans loathe the new Ascension Island rainforest as a pastiche and lupine and scotch broom in Patagonia as sinful aberrations.

 Green Party of Seattle: About Us: Ten Key Values: Ecological Wisdom
Ecological wisdom is a recognition that human society is enmeshed in the web of nature, and that attempts at dominating nature for narrow human purpose lead to very destructive consequences.
There can be no doubt about the importance of environmental issues in a world where the ozone layer is disappearing, global climate is being altered, hundreds of species are going extinct each year, forests and other crucial ecosystems are being destroyed, human health is endangered by toxics, and on and on.
But the essence of ecological wisdom is recognizing that these problems cannot be solved singly and superficially - we must transform our society, reconstructing our political, economic, and cultural institutions in ways that are more sustainable, just, and participatory.

It will become a companion text, if not to be considered standard bibliography for any research in the area of ecology, nature and the study of the intergrative approaches to the cultural diversities of the global future in the third millenium.
The Native Mind tends to view wisdom and environmental ethics as discernible in the very structure and organisation of the natural world rather than as the lofty product of human reason far removed from nature.

 Integral Visioning - Peter Challen: The Ecological Community
So I say, ‘Let’s start with the ecological community, the household and economy of all creation.’ Such a starting point challenges the imagination and prevents it from stagnating under creeping and limited vested interests.
Such ecological wisdom is represented in all the great religious traditions as submission to ‘God’.
It is represented in the close-to-the-natural rhythms of all the traditions of ancient wisdom, but rarely I fear in the institutional protectionism that has grown over time to be a dark side to those traditions.

Her insights, arguments, and examples break new ground in helping us understand the dangers of autonomy, the role of advocacy, and the wisdom of ecological thinking.
She critiques the instrumental rationality, abstract individualism, and exploitation of people and places that western epistemologies of mastery have legitimated, to propose a politics of epistemic location, sensitive to the interplay of particularity and diversity, and focused on responsible epistemic practice.
Drawing on ecological theory and practice, on naturalized epistemology, and on feminist and post-colonial theories, Code analyzes extended examples from developmental psychology, and from two "natural" institutions of knowledge production--medicine and law.

Native wisdom sees spirit, however one defines that term, as dispersed throughout the cosmos or embodied in an inclusive, cosmos-sanctifying divine being.
Thus, this ancient, culturally diverse aboriginal consensus on the ecological order and the integrity of nature might justifiably be described as a "sacred ecology" in the most expansive, rather than in the scientifically restrictive, sense of the word "ecology".

 Deep Ecology
A philosophy as a kind of sofia (or) wisdom, is openly normative, it contains both norms, rules, postulates, value priority announcements and hypotheses concerning the state of affairs in our universe.
The word ''ecology'' originates from the science of biology, where it is used to refer to the ways in which living things interact with each other and with their surroundings.
Shepard proposes, I think if I understand his language, that it is the disconnection from the hunter-gatherer life and hence from Nature, This disconnection is particularly critical at adolescence, and this is where the global culture becomes a "laddish" culture, as noticed by Helena Norberg-Hodge in Learning from Ladakh.
