Albert Einstein once remarked “Science without religion is blind and religion without science is lame and so the blind and the lame are endeavouring to accomplish a common task separately”. It is unlikely that we can rely entirely on science and technology as they are partly responsible for the state of the world today. A sense of responsibility to nature is a moral and ethical issue, not just a scientific one.
Each one of us should look within and assess our own actions and ascertain how we can personally contribute towards a better environment.
I, too share the blame for contributing towards the felling of trees. There was a time when my family used to change furniture every few years but not anymore. We need to give support to each other and bring change first in our own homes and within in our own cycles of influence. We have causes damage to our environment and it is we who must take responsibility for restoring it or at the very least, safeguarding what is left. I admit I do not have my own house and still leaving in my parents’ house but yet to live as a human being, we all have to be responsible for our environment so that we can live in peace and harmony.
For this, we must accumulate a lot of positive energy, not only for ourselves but also for the welfare of humanity. Perhaps the most effective way to do this is to learn to gain mastery over our own thoughts and lead spiritually responsible lives.
