Honoring the Earth and the People Who Honor Their Home Planet with Articles & Tips
Give serious consideration to how beautiful the world is. Appreciate the overarching and ever-changing sky. Marvel at the majesty of Gaia’s body. Thrill to the perpetually transforming costumes of Nature as she changes her raiment with each season’s unfolding.
We, as humanity, have the privilege to live here. We can trash our home or we can treasure it. You, as a member of humanity, have a responsibility to make conscious choices now. You will have to make these choices every day in myriad ways. What you choose needs to be consistently for the enhancement and support of the planet, rather than for the support of a tick-corporation.
When mankind was younger, we had the choice of using our hands to help others climb up or to blacken their eye. In this age of technology, we have the choice to obliterate a nation, erase a rainforest, or even render an ocean a toxic waste dump.
We have the wherewithal, the technology, and the knowledge to work together to change our world to a place that has clean water, food, and shelter for all. We can collaborate to provide opportunity and well-being for everyone. To achieve this, you must first imagine this for tomorrow, and then work your way back to today. ~Peace & Joy
