Ecology by A.K. Ramanujam

Oct 8, 2021-- "We live in times of such great potency. The time of the sixth mass extinction that a vast majority of us are participating in and co-creating, just by how we live our lives, and the choices that we make. We human beings, need the tree beings, the kingdom of the plant people, for our very breath; and if we wish to steward our planetary home away from what appears to be an inevitable fate of climate and species collapse. But why is it so difficult to convince more and more people to plant and care for trees? Whenever I ask this question, I go back to the core of it -- how do people actually 'relate' to trees? Do they?! And then I'm reminded that being in relationship with any being is incredibly complex. There is beauty. There is also messiness and injury. Drama. Poignancy. Something that appears to keep relationships afloat in stormy seas is commitment. To a cause or a principle or a shared life perspective. Something larger than the beings involved in the relationship. It might serve us well to cultivate these complex, nuanced relationships with the trees in our lives too." More in this thought-provoking post that features A.K Ramanujam's poem, 'Ecology.' (2098 reads)
