Part of the process of Awakening is realizing we're all connected on a deep level of consciousness. Not just as humans, but with Mother Nature, with other living beings on the planet, and with the planet itself as well.
The world is not ours to pillage and plunder, we must respect all living creatures, plants, and organisms. Show love to our World, she's the only one we got, and she's loving even if she's suffered so much abuse at the hand of humanity's mad race to exploit it out of all its rich (yet limited ) resources.
We must learn to put back into the World, just as much, if not more, of what we take out of it. Respect Life, in all its forms, everywhere. Thus is the way of the Awakened.
"We're all part of Nature, and Nature is part of us too."
