The Earth Is Our Body
The way we relate to the Earth as something separate from ourselves is what is causing our current environmental and social crisis.
If, instead of seeing the Earth as something outside of ourselves, we could view her not only as our home, but as the living substance that unfies all beings and species as our brothers and sisters, then perhaps we can heal this painful rift of experiencing ourselves as separate from nature and from one another.
The truth is that the Earth is our body, just as our bodies are the Earth. We come from her, and we return to her. Thought and language as well as our ability to self-reflect has created a sense of being separate from our environment.
