Earth practices sustainability through healthy ecosystems.
The three pillars for a natural ecosystem compose of: wildlife (social), environment, and food+water (profit). For an ecosystem, not a lot of thought goes into thinking about the future, but the present actions are guided by the same instinct to survive as with humanity.
Earth has only one need, SURVIVAL
- and to do this it uses only one tool, BALANCE
We learn of balance on every nature channel and in every book. We've seen it on the news and in our own backyard. When a seemingly harmless insect profits from a new crop the results could be catastrophic for the crop, soil, microbes, fungi, minerals, water retention, other wildlife and humans.
The skillful use of balance is Earth's nature, and our bodies nature, but not for our current conscious minds.
"For higher consciousness, balance is learned"
What we need to learn.
By observing small ecosystems, we could learn what balance means for earth, and where the limits stand before collapse. A lot of the information is already available but unfortunately, ignored.
Even with conscious awareness, by learning all the facts, there are currently so many practices collapsing Earths balance for profit & survival of past economic and social structures. This might sound scary and defeating, but there is always hope.
The world is more connected than you think. The series "One Strange Rock", hosted by Will Smith, can show you all about it.
Just like plants, animals and minerals of a single small ecosystem could effect life on the other side of the world, sustainable businesses and people also have the ability for change and affect worldwide.
The Earth as a whole, us included, is one big ecosystem. Though currently unbalanced, we still have time to make the right decisions.
