The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

The world is not a problem to be solved

The world is not a problem to be solved; it is a living being to which we belong. The world is part of our own self and we are a part of its suffering wholeness. Until we go to the root of our image of separateness, there can be no healing. And the deepest part of our separateness from creation lies in our forgetfulness of its sacred nature, which is also our own sacred nature.

– Thich Nhat Hanh, in ”Spiritual Ecology: The Cry of the Earth”.
