my instructor for my societies and nature class tried to tell us how Gaia is this self-regulating spirit of the earth that is conscious of what it needs to make all life hospitable here, and that it controls every part of the spirit...which would include us as well. it's pretty trippy, but if you can get past the strangeness of it, it kind of makes sense.

Gaia has the amazing ability to sustain complex systems that support life just as the systems of the human body do but on a much larger scale. This is evidence of a complex living organism.
Many Gaian theorists believe the Earth to have a consciousness. This is supported by the fact that all living things have a certain level of consciousness. Meditation is the way to achive lasting spiritual growth but any psychedelic could give a glimpse even good weed which is my choice:smoking:
I really reccomend you check out the wiki on this theres some good nuggets of wisdom and everything I left out:
Gaia hypothesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

could Gaia be a he
Gaia is generally considered She probably because of the Greek goddess Gaia but if you look at Native American traditions Mother Earth is female as well.
But then again there was Father Sky. I think the idea is that the Earth nurtures us like a mother and feeds us and takes care of our needs and the sky is considured masculine (not sure why)
For me Gaia has a female or neutral connotation but it could be different for anyone. What matters is the lessons it teaches about respect and being connected.

But we are all connected by this planet, to this planet. We are all part of the cycle. Life feeds on life... feeds on life. This is necessary.
I couldn't have worded it better myself. Thats what the hypothesis boils down to but many take it a step further and look at consciousness and the spiritual realm.
I cannot speak for whether spirituality is involved, because I do not know if it was planned that way.
No one can say whether there was a plan or not but all the matter that extends on into eternity had to originate from somewhere.
That is the mystery Einstein talks about. I'll try to get some quotes up soon. There is some mysterious force and I believe that this ultimate source is an endless supply of white light, pure consciousness, nirvana.
Through meditation people can gain spiritual insights into the nature of God (as I like to call Him/Her). Psychedelics might temporarily do this.
We are all connected to God but we're also connected to Gaia, who is connected to God. By connected I mean physically but also spiritually in that group consciousness exists and God is the sum of it all.
