Answer: These natural disasters, like earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and so forth, are the result of an imbalance in nature. And we are the ones that arouse them. Nature must always be in complete harmony. If we were to behave correctly, we would see a completely different picture of the world: four seasons per year, one after the other, everything in balance, and everything functioning in complete harmony.
Just as we have opposite characteristics, like summer and winter, there are variables between them, spring, and autumn. In principle, summer and winter are not seasons in the year but the transition between plus and minus. If we behaved correctly, all of nature would be in balance and we would not feel any damage from nature, no surprises from its side.
All the natural disasters are a result of negative relationships between people that upset the balance and influences nature. We greatly influence it!
As humans, we are at the top of the evolutionary chain, and nature is at the lowest level, so even a small deviation in a bad direction causes great consequences on the inanimate level.
