Our Relationship with the Natural World

Categories: Great Waves weekly quote

Humanity’s overuse and abuse of the world is now changing the natural balance, and this change is not in your favor. And even at this moment, nations and peoples do not seem to comprehend the magnitude of what is happening. People do not want to give up their privileges. Networks of trade and the exploitation of resources are now well established. People do not want to restrain themselves. In certain wealthy nations, limits will be placed, but in other nations, there are no such limits and no such restraints.

This means that humanity will further impact the natural environment, and the natural environment will further impact humanity. In the end, of course, nature will be victorious, but this creates a dilemma, you see, a fundamental dilemma because greater than your national laws, greater than your social customs, greater than your religious beliefs, greater than your individual or national attitudes or perspective is your fundamental relationship with nature—your relationship with your environment.

It is your responsibility to learn of the natural world and to use it effectively, in a manner that can be sustained. This has been learned throughout the ages. It is not a new learning. But humanity has forfeited this Knowledge out of greed, out of corruption, out of ambition, and now the world has a great many people in it. The boat is full.

    It is the greed of Man ‘who is not a man in strictest sense ‘is the real cause for the havoc . Man has evolved, in the pursuit of technological advancements feels great to fight the nature forgetting his fundamental nature and the responsibility. Those who are in power want to be immortal and flattering or inducing the scientists to do work to remain immortal and take control of the world, demonic way. To this they sacrifice the large part of the society who are not in a position to retaliate. It is only the real saints who are thinking of peace and the ways to bring about a positive change. But the real yogis are shadowed and smothered by the pseudos and make the people to doubt the real ones.

    Our planet is exceptional in the wide variety of climates it possesses. Man’s relationship to nature varies profoundly with his location on the globe. Generally speaking, the biosphere has begun a painful process of simplification so that no species, wild or domestic, will exist which is not an asset to man’s domination of the earth. An important result of this is that our diet will be much more oriented to vegetable rather than animal sources. Expect to eventually see new species of plants with the protein to support human growth and development as a replacement for current animal sources.
