In response to WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: One Love
Universal love or one love is a simple concept for me – love for our home, this earth and the creatures in it, who we’re stewards of, and love for our fellow human beings. Caring for this earth would mean doing things to reduce our carbon footprint, not depriving animals, plants and indigenous people of their land and natural resources and so on. And most importantly, treating everyone like we’d like to be treated. We live self-centered lives where time is a premium; and in the continuous fast spinning cogwheel of life, we tend to forget these two important things unless we make a conscious effort. We’re all connected, so if we made an effort to leave the planet a better place than when we found it and were kind to our fellow humans, this world would be a happier place.
I’d like to sum up with a quote by Chief Seattle “Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
