Being in harmony with the environment means to cherish what the environment provides us. Because we have unlimited desire yet few resources, the destruction we cause now will have a long term, everlasting effect. And most of all, the environment isn’t only for us humans but for all species on earth. And we only have one mother earth.
Everyone has desires, yet they’re unlimited. And because of these desires, humans take more and more from the environment in order to improve living standards. Due to the fact that resources are limited, the amount we want is just way too much for the environment to provide in time. If we don’t cherish these resources, we wouldn’t have anymore to use in the future.
Taking too much from the environment, causes destruction. However, these destructions may not seem to harm us or the eco-system right now, but it would have a long term, ever lasting effect. For example, cutting down trees and making green land disappear, may benefit us and wouldn’t seem to hurt the environment in the short term. Yet, in the long term, species that inhabit in the forests would go extinct, and due to the large number lost of green lands, the balance of the eco-system would begin to collapse. Various climate changes and devastating natural disasters would happen everywhere. And even if humans stop the destructions right away as they realize hoe badly the situation is. It would still take years or probably forever for the environment to recover itself.
There are millions of species on earth, living off what the environment provides. We humans too, are one of them. The environment isn’t only created for humans, but for every species on earth. We should not put other lives at state just because we want to live a better life. And if we never cherish what the environment provides us, we will cause destruction so deadly and brutal even we, humans, can’t get it under control. These destructions could cause the extinction of all species on earth, if earth is destroyed by us, then it means that we have destroyed ourselves.
Cherish what the environment provides us is something that we should all keep in mind. Just because we were born with brains full of knowledge and wisdom that made us ruler of Earth, doesn’t mean we can take everything for granted. Because the victims of the natural disasters. Would always be ourselves. Cherish what the environment provides us would be the exact way for us to live peacefully and in harmony with our precious environment.
