Within the unfolding creation of this Earth, with its majestic mountains and valleys, its rocks and trees, its life-giving streams and seas, Surely man was but a minor afterthought no more important than birds, or snakes. Only we see ourselves as exalted above all other living things. Our opinion is highly overrated and wholly underserved.
Keeping some perspective, we destroy more than we contribute to the planet, we feed our excessive hedonism rather than our humanity. We take more than we need and we bring other life forms to extinction. It could be said mankind is the destroyer, not the creator. Our goals and importance should be seriously reevaluated. We already live in and on Heaven, stop planning on some mystical afterlife, a heaven in the sky, we have it all right here, most of us just do not know it. Perspective is everything.
