From a sociological point of view the more people believe in something ( and work toward this goal) the more likely it is to happen
I have a Facebook group entitled:
My Wish – Ecology Before Economy
When I was in primary school we were asked to write an essay entitled “My Wish”
It was the 1950s 😛
I wrote that I wished that people would care more about the planet and other life forms than about money: The headmaster wrote “good girl” on this essay
and I was so embarrassed that I didn’t think like everyone else:
who wrote about items they wish they had.
In retrospect realize that as a child I wanted to adhere to Ahimsa
a term that I didn’t know then.
I respect all life:
excepting those humans that don’t respect other life forms.
For as long as I remember I have repected all life;
I talk to animals:
reptiles (even though I know snakes are deaf)
plants and trees:
I thank the water every time I turn on the tap:
Thank my food.
Talk to the wind.
I get abused by the mindless automatons for feeding the birds
Because the birds are supposed to find there own food:
Difficult for the birds – the human plague has destroyed it all.
I have studied psychology and sociology –
the nature/ nurture argument doesn’t explain why I think like I do?
Certainly wasn’t leaned behaviour.
A “past life” maybe?
and be kind to non humans
