Mankind has been created with a spiritual and material nature, which is designed to exist in harmony with the environment. When an imbalance occurs and material greed increases, this is reflected in the environment, which is gradually destroyed. The spiritual nature is also weakened and the overall effect is a further increase in selfishness and greed, as individuals seek to acquire for themselves the ever decreasing resources of the environment, which consequently undergoes further destruction. The balance must be rectified by developing mankind’s spiritual qualities.


One response to “Environment and Its Effects on the Spiritual Life of Man

  1. I am conducting a brief survey of world leaders, government officials, religious leaders, corporate CEOs, environmental groups, wildlife experts, and others regarding nature and the environment. I am also very interested in religious views, customs, and beliefs from around the world, and the interactions between religion, culture, society, and the environment. This is something I am doing out of personal interest, and is not connected to any group or organization. I have been working on this project since the summer of 2006, and to date have gotten back more than 700
    responses, both via email and postal mail. There is no deadline for the project, so please feel free to take your time in responding if you need to.

    I would greatly appreciate it if you could take a few minutes to answer my survey. The responses are being posted online at the blog I created for the project, http://earthsurvey.blogspot.com. In the future, I hope to do something more with the results, such as a book or documentary, although as of right now I am not sure of the format or timeline for that.
