Right Thought: How We Think about the Natural World

God be in my head, and in my understanding; God be in mine eyes, and in my looking; God be in my mouth, and in my speaking: god be in mine heart, and in my thinking; God be at my end, and and my departing.   - John Rutter (b. 1945)

This is the second installment in an eight part series that offers information and tips related to climate change and the environment.
The SEC's Eightfold Path of Environmental Action is a companion series to a video that is scheduled to be launched in 2019.
 __________________________________________

Part of the reason we have failed to preempt climate change and address environmental degradation may be due to the perception of ourselves as being outside of nature. By looking at ourselves through the lens of our connection to creation we are more likely to act in a way that minimizes our impacts. Seeing nature as something extrinsic to our self image may have contributed to our propensity to use nature rather than protect it.
