To harm oneself


This is Durdle Door here in beautiful Dorset. I think I’ve chosen one of the best locations to study wildlife conservation here in England. Durdle Door is a natural rock formation along the Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage Site. I had the great pleasure of seeing it and there are many more photos to come.

These words came from a fascinating book I’ve been reading titled Nature’s Web: Rethinking Our Place on Earth by Peter Marshall on the chapter concerning Hinduism. It’s a book about ecology (as I’m studying this, naturally I’m interested in the topic); how different cultures, views, religions, and people have shaped it and the green movement to what it is today; and how we will continue to change it. I’m only a few chapters in and I’m already looking for a copy to purchase and would definitely recommend it.

I strongly believe in these words and wonder why others don’t realize that everyone and everything in this world is connected. I’m reminded of my respect post from a while back. That plant in your neighbor’s yard, the dog you see wandering around, the person jogging, etc. We are all connected and “to harm other things or beings is to harm oneself”. Please be conscious of this and do your best to cause no harm whatsoever to anyone or anything. Have a harmless weekend, my friends!

The world would be a much better place if more people lived by this thought!
