There are no mistakes. as we are battling our own obesity, over taxed hearts, and an insidious disease called cancer look at our planet. It is blooted from the layers of pollution, the rivers, streams and oceans are clogged with debris like our arteries and the insidious disease of waste dumping caused by our lack of awareness towards our planet is a monstrously huge dis-ease.
We need alkaline diets and so does the planet. What does that mean? Alkaline is soothing to our entire being. It helps us stay calmer and cleaner. Much harder to put on weight with an alkaline diet. What does that mean? in very simple terms it means eat your fruits and veggie. Make your grain choices ones you may not have heard of but now you have, Quinoa, Millet, Amarath, Buckwheat, and Long Grain Brown rice. Include nuts and beans that work for you. Seaweed yummy or you can find ways you can make it yummy. Yes simple and yet allows you to eat in almost any restaurant. Did you notice the conspicuous lack of dairy and meat? Yes it is something to move towards knowing as we are more aware of what goes into our body planet the more we can be kind and aware of how we relate with this body earth that supports us all. Take a long look at how dairy cows are raised and how meat is produced movies now out on this subject. Go see one Super size me or ready Diet for a new America or the Omnivore’s delima
Flagrant disrespect honors no one. I had someone tell me, ” This planet can sustain at least 100 years more of just going after all the oil there is. That means drilling all the oceans we can. Drill in the antiartic. Have you ever been there there is nothing there.”This statement took my breath away. I wanted to say ” How can you be so dumb and shortsited. Don’t you know this thinking is how we got here in the first place.” I didn’t say that. I instead looked him in the eyes and said,” Why would you think that would be a good plan knowing what we know now?” Then I watched him smoke and saw what he put into his body and realized that he was willing to pollute himself why not the planet? I who love the ocean wanted to cry at just thinking of all the beaches starting to look like the countries in South America that we have plundered in the false name of progress. ozzing oil beaches.
There is no difference in how we treat ourselves and how we treat this mother who holds and upholds us. If you want her to last for your generations to follow clean up your act. Help others learn new tools to feel better with the real “good things” in life. The things that give us life. Foods with life force, actions that get our blood moving, environments that make us feel kind and calm. Service can come most easily when you feel whole and happy. Grumpy service aint service at all
Share with me your best tools for self care personal and global. Thank you for sharing your best tools.
May you have the courage to see this is a time to choose to live differently. To live better in new ways that don’t tax this mother so deeply.
