Ecology – Living in Harmony

When people live in harmony with the elements and the Earth, they are on the way to Tao. But once they attempt to go against the elements, they are in a losing position. The elements can be tamed but not destroyed, calmed but not eliminated. They can bring terrible devastation. Therefore, do not fight against them once they are active, otherwise you must be aware of the consequences. And in order to avoid these consequences you have to activate your imagination, intuition, logic, wisdom. You have to think and become responsible for your choices.

Can we endlessly play with Nature and tease the elements without suffering any consequences? I do not think so. For example, the destruction of wild forests and a total disrespect towards the element of Wood leads to an imbalance within Nature and a disturbance of changes. The creative cycle gets blocked and the destructive cycle activated. Using up oil reserves and forests, chaotic and excessive exploitation of raw materials, excessive exploitation of rural areas (without giving the soil the time to rest), application of all kinds of chemical substances in agriculture, absolutely reprehensible treatment of farm animals, pollution of the environment, inappropriate usage of water resources, nuclear experimentation, using chemical and biological weapons – are all of these things the ideas of a conscious and responsible people? I do not think that we are fully aware that the Earth is a living and feeling creature.

We are trying to trick our conscience by saying that this devastation of Nature is a necessary sacrifice for the sake of technological progress. On the other hand, we join all kinds of pro-ecological organizations. But we do so merely to deafen our compunction. What use is it to parade with this very fashionable slogan of “ecology” if we do not respect the Order? Do we actually understand what “ecology” means? In the dictionary, “ecology” is described as a field of science concerned with research on the interdependences between living organisms and the environment. This interdependence is very obvious here – we use our power and intellect to ruthlessly destroy Nature, which in fact is the source of our existence. So, how can we talk here about wisdom and a self-preservation instinct?

Why is it so hard to understand that we should respect the piece of land we live on? Nobody will really understand the need for taking care of the environment, Nature and Earth if they do not respect their own body and the processes within it.
And here we come across the main priority: to raise our children and youth with a new kind of consciousness. Make them understand the true wisdom of life and not only what is written in books.

If we do not teach our children about the relationship between the cycles and changes within our body and the cycles and changes within Nature, if they do not understand that they can decide on the way they look and feel, on their inner peace and harmony, then they will never reach maturity and will not be able to be fully satisfied in life. Their respect and understanding of Nature will not go beyond the frames of the word “ecology”.
