Having only recently discovered Alex’s blog, I am happily astonished to find his post today echoing some of the principles by which I have always attempted to live my life.
I had always thought these things to be natural, instinctual even, and was dismayed to find most people where I live do not even consider them.
Of course, all rules must bend at times in the balance of living-you cannot let cockroaches overrun your family’s food supplies for instance as this can result in illness, or starvation. But overall keeping the balance and your own place and part in Nature is essential, imho.
Every living thing on Earth is part of the balance, part of the larger systems in which we live and are completely embedded and part of. Our choice to play a functional part of the system, or as humanity has been doing for some time, a non-functional part, is often crucial to the survival of the system overall, as we now see.
