If you think about it for a minute, about what your body is made of and what keeps it alive, it’s kind of amazing. Your entire body is made of Earth stuff- every single molecule and atom. And where do those atoms come from? From the Earth’s biosphere, from the other life forms doing their life processes, from the trees and plants converting Earth elements into forms we can live on. Food, water and air keep your body alive; the air you breathe, the food you eat and the water you drink become your flesh and blood. Your body is your personal piece of planet Earth. It’s an ecological microcosm of the planet that’s all yours to live in and care for. How we treat our bodies is not different from how we treat the planet. Are we cooperating with the natural environment, supporting its health and wellbeing, or are we creating imbalance, stress and disease? Are we building a toxic waste dump or a vibrant, healthy ecosystem?
