Millions of people know and are concerned about climate change, now we need to move that passive concern into action. Here are 4 simple ways you can help save our planet.
Connecting You To Your World and To Yourself
The present moment is the doorway to your magnificence and your limitless possibilities. It is the entry point to the soul. And loving ‘what is’ in the present moment elevates ‘what is’ to the vibration of love. It allows you to create a bridge of love to another in this moment. When you think life is a condition you have to overcome, change or mold into shape, you cut yourself off from the fundamental reality of the present moment. That present moment fundamental reality of life is love and light.
You take good care of your pet. But what’s your pet done for you lately? Scared intruders from your door? Fetched your slippers? Given you a loving nuzzle? People have lots of reasons for owning pets. Now a small but growing body of research suggests that owning or interacting with animals may have the added benefit of improving your health.
Absolutely if you are driving less than 200 miles at a time. This is the best EV, at this price, I’ve seen.
The Chevy Bolt confirms the fact that all-electric vehicles are worth the money and are here to stay. And that Tesla isn’t the only company good at making a great EV. The Bolt starts at $38,000 but there is a $7,500 Federal tax credit that brings the price below that of the average new car. The EPA states that the Bolt will go 238 miles on a full charge, way beyond what you would normally use even on a busy day. That’s over 3 hours on the freeway. Initial driving miles per charge tests indicate that the 238 miles is doable. It’s no hype. The infotainment screen does a great job of indicating how many miles are still available.
OP-ED: Massive amounts of government information has been removed from government websites since Mr. Trump’s inauguration. Journalists, historians, teachers, environmentalists and animal rights activists have been sounding alarms about massive amounts of data being removed from government websites as well reporting that web pages that report current government activities going dark.
Riding your bike is a pollution free way to protect the environment, provide health benefits, economic benefits, transportation benefits and social benefits.
When it comes to illness and pain there is an almost universal reaction to it. When we feel bad we want it to go away. We resist it and we hate it. And this is true for both physical and emotional pain and illness. We hate our sadness and anger. We hate our knee and back soreness.
Op-Ed: Do you care if over one million black subsistence farmers die in Africa over the next 6 months? They are not white. They are not from Europe. They are not wealthy. Their lives do not directly affect us. Their government does have some oil but their government doesn’t care if they die. Our media does not care about this story because Americans appear to not care about this story.
Over 663 million people live without a safe water supply close to home, and spending countless hours finding water while coping with the health impacts of using contaminated water. Water is the elixar of life and on March 22, Mindfulness Green joins UN World Water Day, to bring attention and focus on fresh Water, and the sustainable management of its resources.
Even as mortality from cancer dramatically decreases, the number of new cases increases. The greatest source of cancer causing toxins comes from non-organic food and pollution, accumulated slowly but surely, over decades of time. Scientific reports continue to indicate that small doses of toxins do not cause cancer and so the government allows toxic spraying of almost all of our food. Yet these reports also are clear that over time continued exposure to low levels will cause significant damage. One tooth X-ray at the dentist has no harm. Have that X-ray every day and in 10 years you will have a severe problem.
Eckhart Tolle is a spiritual master who Finding Your Life's Purpose by Eckhart Tolle teaches us the power of the present moment. He teaches that pain, especially depression and unhappiness, can serve as the motivation we need to make the choice to grow and act.
Wellness, Mindfulness, Empowerment and Fulfillment are taking a solid foothold in people’s lives. We, as a society, have taken these fringe ideas and mainstreamed them for the benefit of ourselves and the planet. Our priorities have decidedly shifted to new approaches to wellness and conscious living.
I am not much of a handyman. But I do keep a toolbox in my home – it has the basics in it – hammer, nails, screwdrivers (both kinds!), screws, a picture hanging kit, and pliers. In much the same way, I find it so helpful to keep a metaphysical/spiritual toolbox. I have studied many teachings and I have learned to: “take what you need and leave the rest”, and so over the years, I have taken the exercises, practices, affirmations – whatever tool has resonated with me, and I’ve put these in my toolbox.
OP-ED: There are 2 things that make America great: compassion and generosity. Having the largest military in the world makes us formidable and having the largest economy in the world makes us wealthy, but they do not make us great. Greatness is a state of consciousness. It is an energy. It is putting high morals into action, and that includes compassion and generosity for all of humanity, animals and the earth.
