So developing consciousness, I think, is very important. It's just not a warm and fuzzy garden, you know.

So that changes your relationship with the earth, but it changes your relationship with another person because, when they go to drive their car over it or spit on it or whatever they're going to do that's negative or disregarding this life, you have to find a way to explain it to them."
