"Soil is the source of all life, literally and metaphorically. All life comes from the mother soil and returns to her. I love soil as my mother and take care of her. Soil contains earth, air, fire and water. She is nature herself. If my outer body is soil, then my inner being is the soul.
As I cultivate the soil to grow food for the body I take care of the soul and cultivate compassion, love, beauty and unity to realise the harmony within and without. When I am at ease within, I am at ease without, I am at ease with the whole of humanity.
Through caring for soil, I am a member of the earth community and through caring for society I am a member of the human community. Billions of people with their diversities of culture and colours are one human family. I suffer with their suffering and I rejoice in their happiness.
Therefore the trinity of Soil, Soul and Society is a way of saying in three words that we are all related, interconnected and interdependent. This is a trinity of wholes and unity of life in its myriad forms."
