Your thinking is as wonderful as your pictures, but unfortunately there are people who have no scruples or worse hate nature and life itself. An example in Italy are the arsonists, poachers trapping many varieties of small birds, such as goldfinches blind them to make them sing even more. I do not speak then of those who gain in killing animals or damaging nature. Laws should be much harder, instead of "encouraging" these criminals! Greetings Fabio.
yes Fabio, thanks for your comments, also in Spain we have this use of trapping Goldfinches and put them into small cages for the rest of their lifes, a horrible idea if you think of the lost freedom of a being which flys freely around the world..
A lovely sentiment, but not exclusive to Buddhism. Ideals of the Christian and Jewish faiths both encourage us all to be stewards of our environment and our natural resources, and to respect God's creation in order to continually reap the benefits of His Providence. Evidence of this is when Jews re-established the State of Israel in 1948. Prior to that, it was a vast wasteland. Since the return of the Jews to their God-given land, Israel has become the breadbasket of Europe, northern Africa and western Asia.
Yes Joan, and I look at the evidence in my own country, America, where we are so obsessed with cheap gas prices that we will destroy all our precious resources just to get to the very last drop of oil. It will take nature tens of thousands of years to erase what we wrought in a mere 150 years. We are a selfish, destructive species that the earth might have been better off without!
