As humans, we have a compulsion to manipulate our environment. It’s built into the fabric of our being. Even the naturalist, who sheds cloths and spurns dwellings, will pile leaves or straw to lay upon in sleep. Why fight it? If you feel compelled to exert dominion over the world around you, why not do that with gusto and live as big as you want?
Allowing for the respect of co-creation and co-habitation, the Creator would not have given you the desire to suit your world to your liking if she didn’t want you to do just that!
