The planet that we live within is just like each of us, an organism. It is not like an organism; it is an organism. We do not live on it—we live in it. We are a part of its structure, a group of its cells, and an organ in its body. It is important to know this and, even more important, to experience it. We are interacting with nature every moment. The flow of molecular energy in the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe represent a flow of energy that is continuous. The planetary environment courses through us.
All these energies are contained within the food we eat. They are the source of our being. Through the selection, preparation, and digestion of our food we can enrich this process of creation or assist in its destruction. Our choices manifest in our body, mind, and spirit, they ripple out and effect the future of both human and non-human life. We need to choose wisely.
