A. The spirit of stewardship


Sa mundo, mas dinadakila ang isang diyamante at gintong nakuha sa pagsira ng kalikasan, kaysa sa isang rosas na ibinunga ng mga halamang nagbibigay nang malinis na hanging hingahan.


Ang taong walang pagmamahal sa kalikasan ay walang pagmamahal sa sarili. Ang taong kinikitil ang kagandahan ng paligid ay pumapatay sa sarili niyang buhay.

Kung may tinanim may aanihin


Humans, like other animals, are shaped by the places they inhabit, both individually and collectively. Our bodily rhythms, our moods, cycles of creativity and stillness, even our thoughts are readily engaged and influenced by seasonal patterns in the land.

Human being is part of creation. Philosophy on Film He/she is not the author of his/her existence. His/her existence comes According to Timbreza, human environment so that the environment will take being has the responsibility to take care of him/her. care, protect, and cultivate his/her potentialities, faculties, and functions.

A. the spirit of stewardship

Human beings have the power to influence and shape their environment through their choices and actions. They can realize the potential of their environment through their actions. However, human actions can also lead to the disappearance or distortion of potentialities in the environment, which can hinder their own self-actualization.Human being's action must not distort the nature of things, but helps it to its realization and sustainability. In doing this, the environment becomes a proximate norm and the Creator becomes the remote norm of human action. Human action does not only determine the kind of environment he/she wants to live in, but also it determines his/her existence in the environment. His/her action becomes reflexive to his/her own self-realization. What the human being does to the environment has a great influence and effect on his/her existence. For Timbreza, this gives us an holistic perception of life. Being situated in the world, human has to establish loving relation with natural environment, and not to dominate it for human being is not the measure of all things. .

Rationality makes human being different from other created beings The capacity to think unveils the inherent nature of human being as the peak of capaion for he/she is created after the image and likeness of the Divine Creator (Gen 1:6). His/her reason, though imperfect, shares in the Divine Reason of the Creator. According St. Augustine, the human being bears and reveals the divine image of the Creator. He/she is the crowning glory of the Creator, But being the summit of creation, it does not mean that having the freedom and authority to control creation, the environment for its expense. Being a rational being and image of the Creator, he/she has to protect and care for the environment. This is the relational dimension for being the human with rationality and as image of the Creator.

As the summit of creation and image of the Divine Creator, he/she has moral responsibility to take care and respect the environment. He/she participates in the Divine Creator's creative acts in the environment. In this context, he/she recognizes the "otherness" of the environment. In such context, Emmanuel Levinas believes that human being's action is for the good of the "other," and not for his/her own good. The environment becomes the basis of his/her judgment and choice. This presupposes his/her great responsibility to protect and care for the environment. Being the summit of creation does not give him/her authority to manipulate and control the environment, but unveil his/her moral responsibility to care and not to manipulate the environment. As a being with intelligence and reason, human being must use environmental resources with love and care. This is a responsibility, and it shall be infinite .

He is an existentialist philosopher who puts morality a "Human Face." It means that human face is more primordial than any claims to philosophical arguments and doctrines, and that before we hear the voice of any reason and commandment, we see the other person when we encounter his/her human face, and we see mutuality in it.

emmanuel levinas(1906
