“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh
One of the greatest tragedies of our age is just how much we’ve separated ourselves from nature—and how little we recognize of the real damage we are reeking.
Long are the days when men looked to earth, sea, and sky to find meaning and purpose. Today is just much the opposite. We see her as the means to our ends and something to conquer, when in fact she provides everything we need to survive and flourish. By taking from her relentlessly and giving little back we’re not only hurting ourselves, but we are especially robbing future generations of experiencing her charms and worse, exposing them to untold calamities yet to come.
Come to know that every time you breath, drink, eat, turn on a light, buy a product, throw away countless plastic and product packagings, etc. you are consuming and destroying something—and dimishing the world you are passing on to your children. Would you deprive your child of clean water, healthy food, etc. today? Well this is in fact what we are actually doing today (to their future) if you aren’t actively engaging in habits and actions that reduce your consumption! Be a good parent by being a good child of mother earth!
Contemplate the fact nature provides everything we use and are (indeed you are fully manufactured byproduct of her!); and you will begin to change your attitude toward, and how you treat her.
So, take better care of the planet by reducing usage, conserving, and reusing. Stop and contemplate that everything you use comes at a price. That all of our air, food, raw materials, and fuels are from her.
