In face of the increasingly serious ecological crisis, this paper discusses the origin and meaning of a community of shared life from the perspective of ecological ethics, as well as the goodness and beauty of a community of shared life, which is the essence of human and natural practice in accordance with the law of beauty. From the perspective of ecological ethics, the integration of ecological aesthetics, focusing on the unity of utilitarianism and non-utilitarianism, is a new realm of pursuing the harmonious coexistence of man and nature, which contains a deep reflection on a community of shared life. It is because of the aesthetic emotions, such as awe, nobility and love that the belief of ecological ethics in protecting the ecological environment is aroused, which urges man to take actions to protect ecological environment and jointly build a community of shared life for man and nature.
