We are a part of one organism, the universe at the macro level and the earth at a micro level. Just as you wouldn’t shove a pencil into your own eye because your eye is a part of the organism that is you, we need to take care of this organism that we are all a part of. The earth. We have little control over the macro elements of the universe. But this microcosm that we exist in starting from the center of our being and spreading out to cover the entire world we have a lot of influence over. Empathy and compassion towards every element of the organism creates a symbiosis that is a benefit to all of its parts which includes us.
