“…simply make things better for someone else, as if I were to be born again, and that someone else, and it doesn't have to be me, but it could be someone like me, that they would have a better life than I had, that everyone was better. There is something seriously wrong with everyone, and that is something I observed when I was very young. We are the problem, and we need to become better, because we are fucking everything up.”
“So this is who I am. There is something seriously wrong with everyone and we need to fix it, if not for us, then for the future generations."
"Everything I have done in this life, and everything I will do, is for this purpose.”

Day 53: We are the Environment

So continuing with the discussion of what is best for all...
         I was looking at this situation, there is a being who is in this world with many other beings. This world is here, its stable from a rule based perspective. Physics describe the physical rules. There are many many different stable relationships in the physical and many different substances and interactions that occur in predictable fashions. I made a comment or claim to another being once that humans should aspire to be like a tree. I mean this in the sense that humans learn commitment and stability. Trees are committed to living in a way to simultaneously support themselves and the environment around them. They are clear in who they are, and trees together have an accumulative effect that support life and the environment. You see, without the environment humans would be nothing, life would be nothing. The environment is the physical, and it includes nature, and the animal kingdom. The environment is life, or has the potential for life in the case of the humans. Humans must become life trees, they must become one with the environment and join with the environment, in living by the principle of simultaneously supporting themselves and the environment, cause you see that really we are our environment. We are the food we eat, we are the air we breathe, we are the dirt beneath our feet/legs/butt. We are our butt.
         And so, by living like trees, we realize who we really are, meaning that we become ourselves that we have separated ourselves from, and so finally reaching a satisfaction and enjoyment that we have yet to know in this one life fully. The trees breathe. And so we must give to life with our breaths, and the human breath includes the human word. We must speak always what is best for all, and so we feed life with our words. We must instigate change within ourselves and in each other. We must stand within and without, unyielding. We must stand as who we are as living trees, living a life equal to the value of our shit, our dirt, our air, our plants, and realize that you cannot own self, that we are one and equal as life. It is the most natural thing that exists, yourself. No control, no slavery, just oneness and equality. 

Until next time...
