Our inner world being Green is important. I work as a counselor also, so I work on my inner world as well as my outer world. I feel this is important because how I project my actions to the world is in direct proportion to my inner world. What does this have to do with Being Green? So much!
Being Green truly is a state of being. I has to do with how you feel about the world we live in. What is important to you, in the form of lifestyle. This has everything to do with being green.
I love life, I do, I love the bees, trees, plants, and I love this planet! I really do love this planet. It breaks my heart to see it polluted, and destroyed, the bees being killed off at massive proportions, it brings tears to my eyes to see the ocean polluted and sea life harmed, coral reefs dying, the polar caps melting.
That comes from a place of gratitude and grace for what a gift this planet is. That is something that isn’t from just going through the motions of recycling and taking my own grocery bag to the food store. That comes from a love of all life.
When people come from a place of non-acceptance of what is truly going on in the world, a place of greed, or of materialism, and no gratitude it shows up in their purchases, actions, discussions, their mood, their state of being. That is how they project on to the world.
So, when I say your inner world being green is important that is why. It is how you actually are ” being” in the world.
I love being green and I love learning and finding new ways to be green, it is indeed fun for me. I love how I become more connected to the earth and it’s creatures. I can handle wasps without being stung. They sense that I have no fear, I’ve picked up a snake, a scared mouse. My being green looks like me being more in touch with gratitude for everything we have on this planet.
I work hard at not taking it for granted. I practice love and gratitude. So when I wreck my car and I can’t bring myself to have the insurance company put aftermarket “new” parts on it, when there is stock piles of damaged cars for the picking to get used parts off of, I do it. I just drive my car wrecked until which time, I can do less harm.
You see being green isn’t about fast and easy, it is about taking our time to do what is best for our home. It is about taking care of, just like we would our own homes, or apartments, or condos. We keep them clean and take care of them. Our planet is no different. It is our home! Being green on the inside is important. It dictates our choices. It’s Hip To Be Green®
