From the Series:
INNER & OUTER ECOLOGY – a revolution in consciousness
Osho International presents in this new series “Inner and Outer Ecology” a selection of talks in which Osho addresses issues related to humanity and our behavior on planet Earth. He says that “this is the only planet in the whole of existence which is alive” and requests a revolution in consciousness to ensure the future of humanity and Earth.
In this particular video Osho speaks on the fact that life does not exist as separate islands and that only a world-government will be able to handle the global crisis.

Osho gives his vision of one humanity.
“The past of humanity has been absolutely accidental; they have been doing things without knowing their consequences. Now we are suffering the consequences and there is no way to change those consequences.
For example, the whole ecology around the earth has been destroyed. Life does not exist as separate islands; not a single man is an island. Everything is interwoven. You have heard these two words, dependence and independence. Both are unreal; the reality is interdependence. We are all so interdependent on each other — not only men on other men, not only nations on other nations, but trees and man, animals and trees, birds and the sun, the moon and the oceans…everything is interwoven. And the past humanity has never thought about it, that it is a cosmos. They went on thinking in terms of taking everything separately. It was impossible for people in the past to think that man and trees are connected, that they are interdependent.
You cannot live without trees, and neither can trees live without you. But it is too late. Hundred-year-old, two-hundred-year-old, even four-thousand-year-old trees have been destroyed and cut to create more newsprint for all kinds of stupid newspapers, without ever giving any consideration to what you are doing. You will not be able to replace them.”
