We live in a society driven by consumption, and populated by consumers. Where we once turned to the flora and fauna to provide us sustenance, we then had local marketplaces whose wares were dictated by local and seasonal availability. And where those once stood, we now have supermarkets, whose wares are dictated solely by consumer demand irrespective of the season or region. More and more, we fell out of sync with the natural cycles. Nature has an incredible power of renewal and ability to sustain life -- this pale blue dot has harbored life for billions of years. Our technology has disrupted Nature’s replenishing cycles, but this is because we’ve simply been moving blindly against Nature’s current. We can control our destiny with the little choices we make every day. The food companies have only sought to satisfy consumer demand dictated by our choices. We must refuse to participate in the present cycle to give birth to a new one in alignment with Nature’s design. Their choices then have to come in alignment with ours. Any change requires first courage to look painfully at the damage we’ve done to ourselves. The next step is inspiration to make that change. If we can help educate one another on this issue we’ve taken a first but critical step. With every little decision, we can veer closer to Nature rather than away from it. Collectively, we can bring ourselves in harmony with our Earth. Help share this message.
