Natural disasters come to show us that we live out of balance with nature.
We are parts of nature’s integral system, and in nature we have the still, vegetative, animate and human levels.
Nature acts as a single organism with interconnection and interdependence among the still, vegetative and animate levels. We are also parts of nature’s interconnection and interdependence, but we lack perception and sensation of it. As such, we are willing to destroy everything as long as the human level is well-off.
Natural disasters come to show us that we cannot continue living the way that we do, that we have to change our attitude to each other: to accept humanity as a single integral system where we are all interdependent, that we have to take care of each other, and if we do not, then our lives will become increasingly grim.
