A lot of People are more aware about the values and great gifts of “our” Earth, “our” Water, “our” Air, and how to take care and respect them in this one Life we are living, and also for the future generations.
Consciousness is growing and growing, that is great! And improvements come.
Still sometimes it can be hard to talk about it without being looked at as a “judge”, as an “intruder” or a “missionary” when involved in “less conscious” People everyday choices.
We know the story: no one likes to be told what to do, or that we may be “wrong”.
And in any case everyone acts as they believe and please, and no one is “perfect” or “pure” (or maybe someone is).
There is a great saying “Shitting in our own pants”, and that describes very precisely, except the pants can be washed and our bodies too.
The other day I thought that polluting and misusing is like cleaning our kitchen table, and throwing the dirt on a floor we never clean. Dirt stays, but it is “down” instead of “up”, where we really do not notice it so much. But eventually the dirty floor can be cleaned too.
What we do to our Home, we do to ourselves.
The challenge with our Planet, our Water and our Air is that it all stays in, or around.
THERE IS NO “AWAY”!
Pollution will stay for many years, damage, maybe it will stay “forever”, or it will fuck up things so much that we got no idea of (excuse the expression).
This is so important, so definitive, and so scary…
I thought the words “There is NO AWAY” could be used as an inspiration, as they touched me when I heard it, many years ago, at a “green” conference. They should be written on the walls of our cities, and in our homes.
And thanks and blessings to the ones who try to walk towards Healing and Balance.
