The more I learn about other species
The embracing connectedness of nature glares at me
The more I care about their habitats
The reliance of human beings on them is evident to me
The more I analyse the threats to survival of us all
The more it points at me
Most species are following their biological code
So it seems other than me
It appears for them
‘Flourishing’ happens inside
For us, we have accepted being measured from the outside
How can I balance this outside-inside?
And gather the tools that I might utilise
Reflect on what is the human being’s biological code
Deep dive into meaning, happiness and wellbeing in life
Could there be a possible way to start this collective enterprise
What measures should I follow for ‘progress’ and ‘success’?
And how do we feel inside: peaceful and nourished?
Or anxious and craving for ‘more’
Could it be another kind of data that is enough?
How do I monitor this internal change?
I can start to see my motivation flowing from inside…
It is gauged by how much empathy I feel about the universe…
Progress can be how little by little my actions start to show…
The paradigm ‘team work for nature’ gradually changing to
‘Teaming up with nature’
Inside and outside
