We are interconnected with everyone else through the web of life. We must act as if we are the whole planetary system, because we are.
We are the earth
When we know we are the earth, we become more conscious of how much we consume, how we dispose of our waste, our use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers — all the ways we damage and destroy our earth home and the creatures living on it
When we know that we’re the oceans, we stop leaving our plastic to harm the homes and lives of the animals who live there. We stop putting in chemicals or creating oil spills. We are aware that the seas are rising and entire islands are disappearing.
We may choose to eat organic to support those who do not use pesticides. We may monitor our driving so that we don’t add to the air pollution.
Give some thought to your connection with the earth and care for it as if it is you — because it is.
We are the animal kingdom
When you become aware that you are an integral part of the animal kingdom, you won’t want to do harm to any animal. As I’m a vegan, no animal is harmed or confined because of me. I financially support organizations that are caring for the animals of the planet. I am one with all the animals in he world — as are you.
We are the plant kingdom
I offer gratitude to the tree that shares my window, to the grass that is soft to walk on, to the vegetables that offer me sustenance, to the small animals under the earth that fertilize the soil for the growth of the planet. I am the soil of the earth — as are you.
I am all there is. As are you.
I am the rock that makes a mountain, the water that forms the sea, the clouds that distribute moisture, the birds and bees that pollinate, the animals who roam the land, the fish that inhabit the sea, and I am all the people in the world. As are you.
Our actions affect everything
Become more aware of your place in the web of life, the energy of connection that links each and every one of us to each other. We must act as if we are the whole planetary system, because we are.
Walk softly on our planet.
