Michael Laitman, On Quora: “What does it mean to be environmentally friendly?“
What does it mean to be environmentally friendly? Does it mean protecting the ozone layer, not polluting, and/or replacing fossil fuels with renewable energies, or are we missing something in such acts?
We have to care about nature on all levels, from the still, through the vegetative, animate, and of course, humans. It is forbidden to harm any level, and especially the human.
How does our attitude to each other affect nature? If we would prioritize positive human connection, we would then relate positively to nature’s other levels. We would then likewise see how nature reacts positively to us.
According to the wisdom of Kabbalah, hatred among people has negative rippling effects throughout nature. It is the cause of negative phenomena in nature toward us. Nature is constantly communicating to us, and the sooner we wake up to its message, then the sooner we would see how it requires first and foremost that we relate positively to each other. Even the slightest movement in that direction would positively impact nature, and we would bear witness to a harmonious reaction from nature boomeranging back to us.
