"This subject of total well-being would not be complete without considering the environment. Wouldn’t you say? Our physical bodies are part of the environment. The traditional definition of health is the absence of disease. The World Health Organization has redefined health as a state of complete physical, mental, and social well being. But, the definition I really like is the optimal integration of mind, body, spirit and environment." Day 37
The same Spirit that moves within us, that same Source of all the energy within us; that Supreme Consciousness that exists within the core of our being, is also in the natural environment. The entire living world, all of Nature is an expression of the same consciousness that is within us. We have a sacred bond as that consciousness is sacred, life around us is sacred.
Do you recognize life in plants, in animals, in every atom and every molecule? Do you recognize that there is life force and there is the presence of Consciousness? What does it mean to you as an individual? Are you environmentally conscious? Are you aware of the natural environment?
As guardians of this world; as creatures with powerful brains, with the faculty of the intellect, we need to protect our world. It begins with us developing that consciousness of the environment and the more we come together in a collective way, the more we can influence the environment. This earth belongs to all of us and taking care of it belongs to all of us. Let us do it in the way that we can, whichever little way we can. Let us make a step towards being environmentally conscious and in our social consciousness, include Nature.
We have a responsibility, let us not deny it. Let us take care of our wonderful world.
