The shared fundamental value of our world is inner rather than outer growth – the growth of social, intellectual, and emotional life. The need to shift from Natural capital to Natural income is at a critical point. Natural capital consists of the accumulated riches of the earth – used and then discarded. Natural income embraces all natural resources that can be renewed, replenished, or recycled. In making this shift – along with becoming “conscious” to our decisions, the size of our ecological footprint will approach the sustainable level to maintain the planet. In addition, corporations everywhere should not just focus on how to increase value for the shareholders by exploiting all of the available resources, but to assume social and ecological responsibility for the stakeholders.
The factors that decide our future is how we think and act. We can and must live up to the potentials of a species that possesses a high level of consciousness. Each of us must start with ourselves to evolve this consciousness to appreciate that we are connected to Earth and all that makes this planet home. Our decisions matter.
