Have you stepped out into nature recently?
Is there even a comparison between the fluffy, brightly-colored grass and the dull, solid, man-made concrete? Earth has got something we don’t have: natural abilities beyond our capabilities.
Have you heard the news? There are many warning signs that Earth isn’t in the ideal condition to continue to support life.
Reasons to care about our home:
Imagine planet Earth as a living organism, just like you and me. Earth is a life-giving source–from plants, to all animals, including human beings. Imagine, just for a moment, that Earth is alive with all the needs and desires that we have–the need to feel loved and appreciated, the need to nourish our bodies to grow and survive and thrive, the need to work in harmony with other living beings.
Imagine Earth providing for us what a mother provides to her newborn baby: every imaginable thing her offspring needs to survive. A mother provides a safe, comfortable environment for her child to grow and develop. A mother provides her newborn baby with the milk the child needs to live. A mother provides her child with love and compassion that enhance the child’s overall well-being. Would you treat your mother the way our home is being treated?
