Caring for the environment doesn’t require you to become an environmental activist, just need to understand one simple thing: You are one with your environment.
Most people think that we must take care of our environment because of the global warming. Governments from around the world have established political agreements to reduce the negative effects of the globalization affecting our planet. Endangered species all over the planet are being supported for international NGO’s.
If we all could realize that our environment is not something external affecting us but ourselves hurting ourselves, no need of political laws or organizations would exist.
“When the earth is sick and polluted, human health is impossible…. To heal ourselves we must heal our planet, and to heal our planet we must heal ourselves.” – Bobby McLeod (Aboriginal Activist & Poet)
Every result is created by an original cause
This is one of the Universal Laws.
This laws means that no matter what we do and how much effort we make to fix the external results; nothing is going to change unless we change the original cause. We need to be clear and honest: all these problems are caused by us, by human beings.
You can blame the whole world for your troubles, but sadly, nothing will change until you take ownership for your part.
“What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another.” – Mahatma Gandhi (Indian civil rights activist)
Everything is pure energy
We are all pure energy and we are surrounded by energy too. Every single thing in this world is pure energy vibrating at different frequencies, but vibration in essence.
The main point here and always, is the perception of separateness.
That is the principal invention of our ego since he has to feel separate to exist, reinforcing the idea that we are just human beings living in a physical world. Our ego is our character playing in the dual and physical world, is a part of us but is not what we are.
The ego usually convinces us that we are separate from our environment but that is not true. We are all the same, we are one with the Universe. Air sustains us and water is a basic necessity, we wouldn’t live otherwise because this is what we are made of.
I am one with my surroundings, aware of the connecting energy between me and my world” – Wayne Dyer, one of the most renowned author and speaker in the fields of self-development and spiritual growth; defines this affirmation in one simple sentence
We create what we think and belief
We are all creatures of habit, and changing our behavior takes some time.
The first step is with no doubts, changing your mindset. Start avoiding the pitfalls of the “should’ve, could’ve, or would’ve” mindsets. The past is over, you can’t change anything that has happened before. Going over past mistakes or regrets is pointless, futile, and definitely a waste of time, energy, and emotion.
Focus on what you want, the Universal Law of Attraction will always create experiences in your life which match the deeply held beliefs that you hold in your subconscious mind. This goes for positive beliefs, as well as for negative beliefs.
Small steps are key. Once you find how easy each is, you will be surprised how quickly you can make a positive and unstoppable change in your life and the environment by changing your way you see yourself, as a part of the universe.
“If you always do what you’ve done, you’ll always get what you’ve got” – Henry Ford
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
Try to integrate this mantra in your daily routine and think about it every time you make a thought or judgement about yourself or an action that damage the environment.
Mother Nature gives us all the things we need to live, because we are worthy, is our right to have it all.
Clean air, clean water, amazing and beautiful landscapes, breathtaking views, sunlight… what do we give in return?
No matter how small or insignificant your actions may seem, they matter.
Love and respect yourself and sooner your environment will change in the same direction.
