Each day, you invent the future…

Did any of you get to see Dr David Suzuki when he recently came to Australia? I unfortunately missed out on this amazing tour, but my sister was lucky enough to go – and purchased his autobiography as she was so inspired by his words.
I’ve been reading it lately and have not been able to put it down – and then one of my fellow yogis forwarded me this most beautiful Declaration of Interdependence, which I had to share with you all. Many thanks Rhonda! Enjoy all.
Declaration of Interdependence We humans are but one of thirty million species weaving the thin layer of life enveloping the world. The stability of communities of living things depends upon this diversity. Linked in that web, we are interconnected -- using, cleansing, sharing and replenishing the fundamental elements of life. Our home, planet Earth, is finite; all life shares its resources and the energy from the sun, and therefore has limits to growth. For the first time, we have touched those limits. When we compromise the air, the water, the soil and the variety of life, we steal from the endless future to serve the fleeting present.
