The only way to give the natural world an opportunity to recover is to reduce human pressure on it. That means abandoning our addiction to growth and to the consumer society and focusing instead on progress in the social, cultural and spiritual components of life.
Baha’u’llah, of the Baha’I faith, writes “…be content with little, and be freed from all inordinate desire… Take from this world only to the measure of your needs, and forego that which exceedeth them.”
Despite the pause and the acknowledgement of the quality of life between March and May, the insatiable hunger for ‘stuff’ and our addiction to busyness and distraction quickly returned so profound has been the consumerist brainwashing. The more that is accumulated, the more is wanted.
We are all being challenged to detach ourselves from the excesses of the material society around us and to adopt more sustainable lifestyles which can both bring us closer to nature and foster our social and spiritual development.
After all Nature is not a resource.
She is our Mother and our heirloom.
