All life is sacred. Each cell in a body is part of the whole body. In the same way, every living being on earth lives by giving and receiving within the living planetary body. Every and all life is interwoven in the living fabric of life on this planet.
The cycles of life and death in nature self-regulate elegantly. We as human beings must be as responsible for keeping the creative and destructive effects of our activities in harmony with the whole of life — without careless suppression or extinction of other life forms and supporting the Earth's naturally occurring, harmonious diversity.
