A: The relationship between man and planet or man and “nature” is such that little care is taken by man to ensure the continued balance. Man has grown complacent and has long since removed responsibility for the relationship from self and “given” it to some unseen force they call God. But god does not exist, and so cannot create more trees or more clean water or more coyotes. Only man and those oversouls responsible for that aspect of nature can. But if the cooperation does not exist, then the relationship shall falter and imbalance may cause a part of nature to “disappear” (become extinct).
More so now does man begin to understand that the interactions must be balanced. That is they do not interact with nature in a “responsible” manner that the relationship will fail. That this may result in waters that can no longer support life, or air that must be filtered before breathing or animals of a type no longer living, is only now beginning to be perceived and understood.
This awareness and understanding comes more from the advancement of the population to be mostly 4th cycle. For now does man gain the maturity to perceive that even their own existence on and with the planet and its fellow inhabitants depends on the relationship they develop with same. For by shifting the responsibility to others, be they neighbours or gods, they deny themselves the ability to interact with that aspect of life that determines most often how their overall future might progress. Also do they deny themselves the possibility of creating a difference in the relationships formed by man with the planet and all who inhabit her.
It is not so much that they cause harm, but rather is it merely an example of experiences not taken and opportunities bypassed. Always is it the choice of each fragment as to how and what they will do, but also is it their responsibility as to occurrences caused by their choices. Therefore, if they do not care for the dirty air, yet they choose to do nothing to prevent the air from becoming dirty, then must they hold themselves as accountable for having to endure that which they do not like.
We are not advocating any action in particular, nor do we say that one must choose to protest, or walk, or in any way take action. We merely state that you (each of you) are responsible for your own being, and your own reality, and your own interactions or lack thereof. To worry whether your neighbour recycles or uses chemicals upon their lawn is your choice, but it is not your responsibility, for their choices are their own, just as yours are for you.
