“Just as an apple tree produces apples, because apples are part of the apple tree, earth produces human beings. No earth, no human beings.” Adyashanti in The Most Important Thing
Imagine the apples of an apple tree destroying the tree on which they hang. No tree, no apples. Sounds ridiculous, right? That’s exactly what humans are doing. Destroy the Earth, and eventually, destroy humanity. We are the Earth, just as apples are the apple tree, and the Earth too. When will we wake up and see clearly that everything is not just connected but One Big Whole.
It doesn’t have to look big. Just do what you can to protect the Earth. You’re really only helping yourself.
