Subtle shifts in the way we perceive things, objects, materials, events, can lead us to a different perspective on our journey’s to become more ecocentric. I came across this meme which illustrates that idea so simply and succinctly.
Instead of centralizing our thoughts, words and actions around human activity, like considering the road a central focus because it is something humans utilize, we can center them around nature, and our place within it. This one simple statement centers the forest as the most important piece of this picture, instead of the road, and shifts the focus from the human activity to the ecosphere, just a tiny piece of the puzzle of creating a paradigm that centers our natural ecosystems and helps us become more eco-centric!
