As a species we are minuscule in the great scheme of things, but our effect on the planet since our existence, has been catastrophic.
We tell ourselves, not to worry - all will be okay and that the planet survived long before we arrived on the scene.
Although, Mother Nature has never created - in the history of evolution, such a complex, selfish, self concerning species. She has outdone herself in her abilities of organic design; we have been her best and worst creation to date.
The more evolved we become, the greater heights we strive to achieve - the less we see what is happening around us; the more out of touch with the balance of nature we become.
We tell ourselves, there should be work-life balance - what about Mother Nature balance? Where there is imbalance, there is will be a trade off. Something else, someone else, some other species or organism must suffer as a result of the imbalance.
Due care for nature; to work with and beside her must be our first and last consideration before we create, invent, borrow, pillage or destroy.
We tell our kids, ‘you are not the only one on the planet’, but as adults we consider only ourselves. We behave like spoilt brats expecting the earth; expecting to receive all, to have all in the name of progress and success.
Time is now. What we walk past, we accept.
We are failing Mother Nature as her greatest creation; we need to make her proud.
In order to help our kids, to help ourselves, to help us get ahead in our own lives. We must first consider doing something for Mother Nature - we must give back - be that plant a tree, clean up the earth’s surface - biosphere/atmosphere that we have polluted. We must learn to think of healthy disposals before we create anything, buy anything, use anything.
We were given paradise - all given to us without recoil, but we are creating and living in a rubbish dump. Where everything is disposable.
Charity starts at home - with nature.
