I recently posted a blog at GardenTenders.com and daltzguy made a point that got me thinking…

Spirituality is not only about honouring all things as Sacred but it is remembering that we are not a vital component of the big scheme of things on this planet. Mankind has such a big ego that we think everything revolves around us. It doesn’t. When we remember our place, we recognize the Sacredness of all things – the equality of all things.

When speaking of the environmental issues, as daltzguy points out, it is not about saving the planet but saving ourselves. Reducing our carbon footprint, the 3R’s, and all of the other strategies that we are using to “save the planet” are really forms of honouring. At this point, most people who are environmentally friendly are trying to make a difference, trying to save the planet. But “spirituality” takes it beyond this. We really don’t have the power to save the planet (surprise) but what we do have the power to do is realign ourselves, intellectually and spiritually, with our place in the Universe. Our species is just one grain of sand on the beach, as they say, and Mother Nature, the Universe, is so much bigger than you and I.

We are in the house of Mother Nature. We are the guests. We need to act as such.
