”If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself, if you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” – Lao Tzu
I was recently researching online and found an amazing site that shares love and hope for humanity. Considering this message is up my alley of to do’s — I felt the need to share! A few excerpts can be read below – please visit this site for full article.
The author describes her four reasons for hope for saving endangered species as “our quite extraordinary intellect, the resilience of nature, the energy and commitment of informed young people who are empowered to act, and the indomitable human spirit.” She believes that the abilities of people combined with the resilience of nature and dedicated individuals can turn back the damage we have caused to the earth’s species. She tells brief stories of restoration that gives evidence that it is really possible to repair what scars we have caused. A story from Kenya that took a barren waste to a self-sustaining habitat for thirty endangered species; a six year old’s dream of putting the trees back on a mountain; logging damage restoration; and the massive clean ups of various rivers and lakes that were so drastic that they were lifeless, but were full of life after restoration practices. She goes on to tell about China and how the people lost hope in the conservation of the environment that is made even worse by the fact that the country contains a fifth of the Earth’s population. People have made a big move from farming villages to the city in search of jobs and money. The cities have spread and the environment suffered. There has been efforts to repair the damage and conservation has begun to progress and land has been set aside just to be nature and not for some kind of monetary use. Her point is to tell us that it is never too late to repair damage done to the earth. It appears, the author also believes that if more people got out into nature, and found a species or place to fall in love with, more help and conservation would be seen. People who love a wild animal feel obligated to help them live where they belong. Those that don’t care about animals or nature see endangered species as “just a bug” or “just a bird.”
What do you believe? In your opinion — What difference would it make to you — if many of the animals on Earth were to go extinct? Should every creature have value, even if that value is just to exist…? We would love to read your thoughts in the comments section below.
