TREADING LIGHTLY ON THE EARTH
Today with all the threats of global warming, a coming ice age, diminishing supplies of fuels, pollution and so on, more and more people are becoming aware of the need to live sustainably.
All through time Earth has been sacred to indigenous peoples, and there have been plenty of warnings to our society of the dire consequences of our actions. Blindly we carry on.
Imagine for a moment that you were an advance Being, sitting on another planet looking at this one, would you think there was intelligent life on Earth?
|There is a concept that the Earth is a sentient being in her own right. This is known as the Gaia principle and is central to our understanding that we could do well to respect our planet and to realise that we cannot carry on the way we are.
