I was planning to write on something else today – Oprah envy and rumors – but something else keeps popping into my mind so I’ll get to Oprah another time.
There has to be life for there to be quality of life. The most pressing issue for the world right now, in my humble opinion, is the environment. We have to slow the damage, reverse the trends, and learn to do with less. The human race will have to come together around the environment despite our differences or we will perish.
It is as simple and as complicated as that.
It will require sacrifice, boldness, simplicity, new ideas and old ways. It will require love and faith and work. It may be the one thing that unites us. Either good will triumph over the evil of our excess and destruction or we will perish together.
The evil of our excess – it’s nice for it to be called what it is – Evil. Even those of us without “much” live with excess, shamfully so. I vow to “do” with less, and hopefully, doing with less, will leave more for all and nurture my interior journey. Thanks for writing this.
