Choosing Awareness

"If our human race continues to live in ignorance and in the bottomless pit of greed as at present, then the destruction of this civilization is not very far away. We have to accept this truth, just like we accept our own death. Once we accept it, we will not react with anger, denial, and despair any more. We will have peace. Once we have peace, we will know how to live so that the Earth has a future, so that we can come together in the spirit of brotherhood and order to save our beloved green planet. If not, we will die from mental anguish before our civilization actually terminates."

---Thich Nhat Hanh
