8 "Organisms shape themselves in response to their neighbors and their environments. All respond to one another, co-evolving and co-creating the complex systems of organization that we see in nature. Life is systems-seeking. It seeks organization. Organization is a naturally occuring phenomenon. Self-organization is the powerful force by which Gaia created herself through relationships, creating all the living systems we see.

Wheatley, 'Reclaiming Gaia, Reclaiming Life' The Fabric of the Future (M. J. Ryan, editor)

The Mystic Hours, A Daybook of Interspiritual Wisdom & Devotion (Wayne Teasdale)

Basic Theosophy (Geoffrey Hodson)
