Spiritual Ecology

"Ecology is defined as the science of the relationships between organisms and their environment. Generally we think of these relationships as being of a physical nature, but historically and practically, it is not. A beings environment is not only physical but we have an emotional as well as spiritual environments. Those of us who have been researching the spiritual environment of this world will usually agree that the spiritual proceeds the physical. That means that if there is a physical problem there is usually a spiritual problem behind it, and if we address the physical without addressing the spiritual, the resulting changes will be short lived. If, however, we address the spiritual and set the underlying problem right, the physical rights itself. This is because right relationships and honoring on the spiritual ensures right relationships and honoring on the physical."
