in a time when global issues can seem overwhelming, there's a tendency to focus on the outer (with blame) while ignoring the Inner.
Truth of the matter is, there are numerous things that wIe, as an individual, can do-Be-do, in order to clean up our own In-vironment. ..we can:
1. consider that which wIe are putting into our mind, and make changes as desired... 2. consider that which nourishes our Spirit, and align with Ease, Happiness, Truth, and Love... 3. consider that which we put into our bodies, and really observe how we feel, afterward... 4. consider our relationships, and do what is necessary to For-give, to under-stand, and to Nurture... 5. consider our consumption, and do whatever we can to care for our Mother, Earth... 6. consider our thoughts, and shift focus to that which helps us smile... 7. consider our words, and use only those that support and praise... 8. consider our deeds, and take actions in alignment with that which we Know is help-full...
while a medical/media-oriented world wants us to think (and fear) globally (while becoming increasingly numb), we can literally change the channel, and tap into that which (locally) feels Good.
and that, my friends, is Wellness, in a nutshell.
and you-me-you, right Here and Now, are the very seed of y/Our vibrant future.
picture yourself, living-out the rest of your entire life in your beautiful, warm, crystal-clear hot tub. .
imagine that the water in your tub is responsible for the healthy re-production
of hundreds of thousands of the most delicate processes in your body.
imagine if (uh, oh) due to an accident, two or three small oil leaks appear at the bottom of your hot tub.
imagine that the leaks are constantly spewing motor-oil into your crystal-clear water. ..imagine further, that your hot tub has an automatic system of circulating the oily water throughout y/our entire area.
now imagine that the company (whose oil is leaking) has "teamed-up" with a "govern-ment," and that they've decided to:
1. burn a fraction of the oil off of the top of the tub, and 2. dump permanent toxins into your tub in order to keep the oil from getting to the surface, and 3. place three or four toothpicks (called "oil booms") approximately 1/100th of an inch away from the edge of the tub, in order to "block" the oil from making landfall (whaaa?), and 4. write letters to each other, in order to decide how much information that they'd provide to you, and 5. hope and pray that ill-fated solutions might (with luck) eventually stop the spill...
...while telling you that they'll soon be forming a committee to investigate the safety of the thousands of other oil rigs that are already operating in your hot tub.
imagine if the oil spillagecontinued for a month (or worse yet, several months)?
(question: do you think that things could get any worse, during the june - octoberhurricane season?)
for an answer to that... periodically, uh... (1) cycle your hot tub's jets, then (2) soak, then (3) repeat.
* maybe, just maybe, it's time for humanity to consider switching to solar and wind energy sources.
