we come from the earth and are blessed with the gift of life from the very breath of God. understanding our deep connection with the earth is important for healthy sane living. we have come to a point in time when the negative impact of human life on this planet out-weighs our positive contributions. what we do today affects the planet far into the future. for our own sake and the sake of the generations to come, both human and animal, we need to re-evaluate our priorities and activities.
where is the wisdom in exploiting natural resources to maintain a lifestyle of ease for some, while others suffer, in the here and now, because of the greed and wantonness of those exploiting for selfish reasons? where is the sanity in turning a blind eye to the present and future effects of planetary toxication? the simple fact is that what we dump on the earth or in the water today is what we eat tomorrow. a simple equation, poisoning the earth equals poisoning our bodies.
the truth is that every day is earth day, in that we need to be conscious of our actions and how they affect others. making ecologically healthy choices in our daily lives is an important step in healing the earth and caring for one another as well as ourselves. simple things like choosing to use natural household cleansers, composting, exclusively using re-cycled paper products, and pulling out weeds in our yards instead of using herbicides (which also gives us an added benefit of exercise). basically, be willing to learn more, be open to new ideas, and think before acting - all this will help us live in a saner healthier world.
