The building of a One Earth Community is not an overnight project but a long and a labor-intensive work of relationship-building. We build one community at a time, one village at a time. This cannot happen without trust and trust happens over time. Change takes time. It involves personal conversion that gains momentum the more people get involved. This process moves from personal to social to ecological. Thus, the birth of an Eco-village. Its foundation is literally from the ground up with the realization that we relate to the land, to the environment, indeed to all of creation in the same way we relate to one another: with mutuality, with care and respect. The implication is that there is something sacred, something holy about this inter-relationship, this interconnectedness of all that exist. Thomas Berry once said "The universe is not a collection of objects but a communion of subjects.” This implies that the land is not dirt, not even just soil on which we grow things for human consumption. The Earth, the environment, is not a mindless matter but a living organism of which we are all a part: life nurturing life.
