‘I am because we are’ is a tribal philosophy originating from Africa. We, the human community are just a part of the living beings on the Universe. We are not the Universe. Neither is the Universe or Earth only meant for us to loot, plunder, control and rule.
We live on this Earth for such a short time. Let us use that time to create a beautiful home for our future generations. Let us learn balance and harmony from Nature and live accordingly. As an ancient Indian proverb says
Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors,
we borrow it from our Children.
My pastimes include gardening…. I love planting a seed and watching it transform into sapling, tree, branches, leaves, flowers, fruits, seed.
