How timely to extend ethics of reciprocity, humane treatment, peace, and justice to include the whole of the living world, as human-nature interdependence and ecological responsibility become starkly clear with climate challenges. May earth life prevail, gentle rains return to drought-dry and desert lands, and balance be restored.

This new fifth directive is about reverence for life and continuation of the human species.
