Yesterday evening I got the opportunity to see the English documentary movie, “HOME” and today morning I read the article "Worms are, Therefore I am", many don't understand the Nature but the few who understood or trying to understand are the Blessed Preservers of this Nature. Thanks for these great words of Wisdom

What an interesting read and perspective. Enjoyed it. As a Christian may I add one more thing? God states in the Old Testament, "I am that I am." He made all that you mentioned, and all have their place and purpose. Therefore I am because He is. How wonderful to think that all living beings come from His hand and therefore all are meaningful.

I loved reading this, and the timing is especially appropriate for me, and tomorrow is Tu B'Shvat, the "Jewish New Year of Tree", a holiday that encourages us to honor the Earth through planting trees, eating the fruits of the land, and acknowledging the interconnectedness of species/beings. In modern time, it has been an opportunity to focus on sustainability as well. I look forward to integrating this teaching into the ceremony I am planning for tomorrow.

This is a beautiful piece about harmony in nature and realizing that we are one with one another. I love that it reminds us that we are not better than one another whether we compare ourselves to another human, a plant or an animal. We all play a vital role in our earth and this article is such a great reflection of that.

Two quotes come to mind after reading this, both by Chief Seattle:
"Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”
"Earth does not belong to us; we belong to earth.”

Thank you Satish. I share your feelings that man is a most arrogant specie when it comes to nature and other species. I am affraid that not only Descartes but monotheist religions as well, some of them still sacrificial, share responsibility for this. Or it may be that some of their teachings have been lost. I recently heard, from a student in the Talmud, that, originally, the very first people of Israel, were forbidden to eat meat, any kind of meat. Not only ST. Francis, but also Chief Seattle spoke of deers and rivers as being the brothers and sisters of the Sioux people .

I am the apple tree giving apples so freely
I am the mother feeding my baby
I am the earth in harmony
Living spirit in a human body
Blessed to receive these gifts
Cherished for the beingness
Presence; I AM
I am the river flowing to ocean
I am the lotus growing in a swamp
I am the seed turning into tree
I am lion eating rabbit
I am duck swimming in pond
I am the lover and the beloved
Living spirit in this seeming chaos
Receiving the love as lover Earth makes love to me
With her rivers flowing into oceans
She makes love to me
With her warm sun caressing my uncovered body
She makes love to me
With her reflecting my own beauty
She makes love to me
With her generosity, giving herself to me so completely
I will rape her no more
I wont hurt my lover
As I see her love
As I see her love, I am whole
She has healed my wounds
It doesn’t hurt no more
As I see her love, I am whole
I too can be love
I choose to live as the apple tree
Giving my gifts so freely
I am in love

I liked this passage very much, as also listening to all the comments. One thought that came up for me was that nature is not that benign as it seems. When the lion is hunting deer, there is no sign of mercy - the deer is just food. If the lion were to show mercy, it would not be a lion. We see the brutality and cruelty in nature whenever its time to eat. In that, the human condition is unique from the animal one - that we construct stories of morality to guide our decisions, instead of responding instinctively. In that we have a choice - to answer the call of nature, or wait a bit, and ask, "What is our nature?" There are layers, and we can choose to be true to our base nature, or dig deeper.

My appreciation of nature's generosity and beauty has grown ever since i started caring after a garden, a very sacred garden, in fact, where we may have raked a few dead leaves together, Satish, many years ago. But all land is sacred to a gardener. I feel the prevailing species-ism you are refering to is a cultural aberration, a monstruous denial of that humaneness which St. Francis exemplified.

There was plenty to like about the way the Cardinals finished the 2017 season.
By capturing three of its final four games, the team scratched out a .500 record despite myriad injuries, cheap jerseys wholesale and the Week 17 upset of the Seahawks allowed coach Bruce Arians to retire as the winningest coach in franchise history.
It wasn’t great news, though, for the draft order, as the strong finish moved the team down to the No. 15 pick in the first round.
There is a great deal of debate about which of the top four quarterbacks – Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen or Baker Mayfield – deserves to be taken first, Movie Football jersey but most analysts believe both Darnold and Rosen will be gobbled up before the Cardinals’ selection.
The price to move up is much higher in the first round, but it may be the only option if Darnold or Rosen piques the interest of the Cardinals’ brass. Rosen started for three seasons at UCLA, finishing with 9,340 yards passing, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey 59 touchdowns and 26 interceptions In 30 games.
He has drawn positive reviews for his mechanics and football IQ, Denver Broncos Jersey possessing the tools needed to become a successful NFL quarterback. Rosen is an independent thinker, which some teams may appreciate but may make others pull back.
Lamar Jackson smiled, as he did through much of the media session that spent probably too much time Chicago Bears Jersey on whether the Louisville quarterback would work out at all as a wide receiver for NFL teams.“You know, I thought I did a good job at quarterback,” Jackson said good-naturedly.
A Heisman Trophy says Jackson did San Diego Chargers Jersey, as do his statistics: More than 3,500 yards each of the last two seasons, 57 total touchdown passes (against 19 interceptions), and 3,171 total rushing yards and 39 rushing touchdowns in that same span. Jackson, 6-foot-2 and 216 pounds, is a dangerous player to put behind center. The analysis will be whether it can carry over into the NFL.
That Jackson should forgo an opportunity to try quarterback is foolish, given his production. Minnesota Vikings Jersey During the Scouting combine, a report said there were teams that wanted to work him at receiver. That held no interest for Jackson.
“Whoever likes me at quarterback, that’s where I’m going,” Jackson said. “That’s strictly my position.” There will be multiple teams in a quarterback-hungry league that will want to give him that chance.
