Live Education for Ecology

I had a good experience recently. There was a dinner party outside. One child dropped his sausage on the ground and was about to put it into a trash can. If I were him, I would also do like him. However, his father said, “no, no” and picked it up and went to a wash room to wash it. I think it is the most important education for children.

We have to reconsider the definition of Sustainable Development, which means that “development which meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” I would like to change one vocabulary “ability” into the “right” of life of future generation. It is absolutely their right to enjoy their own life in future.

Changing Life Style

Changing Life Style: I was grown up in a little poor home in a small city in Korea. I sometimes went to my friends’ houses whose homes were richer than mine. Whenever I visited there, I really envied their lives, since they had lots of foods and furniture and it was not cold in their houses. If they wanted to eat something, they could.
I thought at the time that there were different lives in the world. It was given. They will live as they have lived. I will live as I have lived. It was a habit of life of each other. I cannot say that “you should not live like that.”
When I came to America for the first time and especially went to Costco or huge markets, I felt the similar things. When will these products disappear? American people have lived like this. How can I say that you should not live like this?

One day when I studied in my room, a little bird came and sat at the window. I did not know who she was and where she came from. During the short time, we saw each other.

In order to honor other creatures, we need often eye-contact with other creatures. I cannot forget her eyes even now.

Nest on the tree

Whenever I see nests on trees, I feel amazed. How can birds make their nests on trees? They do not have any tools such as hammers and nails or any glue, but they can make them. Can I make a nest without any tools? When I was in Korea, there was a huge hurricane which makes trees fell down. However, I cannot forget a scene. A nest on the tree was not broken even in that hurricane. Can we say that we are more powerful or wise than animals? We, human beings, must be humble in front of the animal or nature.

Let’s close our eyes and imagine the whole process a flower blossoms. One day a seed was flying by the wind and fell on the crevice, but it was not a comfortable place. There must be a sunshine and raining and proper climate. In order to raise and blossom a flower, the whole universe helps it. The whole universe interweaves each other. The whole universe tries to help even one life although it is in the edge. Asphalt is death, but, where there is crevice, there is life.
