Weaving the World Together

I love hearing insight about the world especially from people who are so in tuned with it. We are so busy with our lives that most people do not take the time to understand the environment we live in. We simply just take and take until there is no more to take and then move on to the next area that has what we want. The Chumash people, just like Tima Link really understand the earth that we live in. They know the feeling of the earth and how to take care of it. They is an understanding of balance in their world. The give and take is mutual and they know once one party oversteps their boundaries, there will be need for re-balance. Although the video was speaking on taking care of the environment on a smaller level, what they were saying can really be applied to the entire earth. We live on a plant with finite resources, but live and use as if it were never ending. We need to find the balance in order to sustain the world that we live in. Our over-consumption will lead to our end, but that is not always seen since we are very much about the hear and now when it comes to the things we want and need. We need to figure out a way to work with the earth so that we may grow together.
