How to Heal the Earth

How to Heal the Earth

When there are enough people who have healed themselves, the environment will also mirror that.

I am not speaking of policy changes and adopting the Kyoto accord. Nature is a living expression of consciousness. It adapts to our evolution as we adapt to it. That relationship, as with everything in the tangled hierarchy, is reciprocal and interdependent.

Itís disturbing that so much of the New Age thought is centered on catastrophic earth changes, such as earthquakes and depleted ozone layer. This kind of prophetic negativity cannot attain a good end. It encourages the prophecy to come true when what we want to do is exactly the opposite.

The principle to keep in mind is that consciousness wants to evolve. Therefore it is much easier to encourage healing than to align yourself with disease. Love and respect for the environment would create a reversal of the spiraling deterioration in the physical world. We need to trust that this is true, because in a very real sense the environment is sustained by human awareness.
If you align your awareness with catastrophe, nature will factor those thoughts as your vote for the future. The peace movement can align itself with a healed planet, adding millions of votes to that side. And since our votes carry depth of awareness, they will be far stronger than any thoughtless vote for destruction.

Taking care of our bodies will help the earth. If we choose to not surround ourselves with chemicals and toxins, then we will not be using them and the need for these things will cease. Thus, leading to the healing of our planet. I am optimistic, people can change. If I could change, then so can the rest of the world if they want to.

Every bit of us healing the earth helps. Until we learn to live with nature again we need to really take action to lessen our carbon footprint.

Beautifully written. I couldn't agree more. I always chide my friends for their negative thoughts, and sometimes they'll roll their eyes and laugh at my positive attitude, but I know it's for the better.
