The concept of cause and effect of climate change is generally misunderstood. The initial cause resulted into a chain reaction with each effect in turn becomes cause of another set of effects. Under such circumstances we mistakenly assume that degree of cause and effect is same, and also that physical effect might have some physical cause. In fact, it is the internal factor i.e. our perception that influenced our choice of behavior that triggers the external physical effects. With time we redefined our relationship with our environment from symbiotic to parasitic. We isolate ourselves from our environment and artificially fabricating the natural phenomenon. We fail to see that we are the source of all the causes and we also become the major target of the amplified multifaceted effects. Spirituality is the only remedy that reunites us with our environment, Earth and universe. Spirituality governs our outlook and thought process. Spirituality goes beyond our reasoning and analytic capacity to find the truth behind all reflections, illusions and shadows. Spirituality is all about knowing God and doing God's will, abiding in the words of Jesus. With spirituality we can always find meaning and ways in difficult situations. Spiritual outlook inspire us to live in harmony with nature and everything around us as neighbor.
