A new series begins as of today, on green and sustainable living. Earth Day was a few weeks ago, but because I was on hiatus last week, I couldn’t write it about it last week. So the series begins today.
In reality, though, everyday should be Earth Day.
A Low Density Lifestyle is not just about being on the path of health and wellness, and of healthy living in general. Of course, this is so important.
A Low Density Lifestyle also will make you feel lighter of body and mind, and allow you to feel less dense in relationship to our planet.
With all the concern about global warming, pollution and toxins in our environment – what with the recent oil spill in the Gulf Coast – and also sustainable foods and agriculture, it’s so important to apply a Low Density Lifestyle to the environment, and tread lightly wherever you go.
The point is that living a Low Density Lifestyle applies not only to your personal well-being, but to the well-being of the greater whole. You can say that it extends to the health and wellness of the entire planet, so that the planet can experience healthy living.
Before I close today’s article, I want to bring your attention to the below video, which is footage of the Gulf Coast oil spill, and an in-situ burn.
This is an ecological and environmental disaster, and shows the shortsightedness of the policy of “Drill, Baby, Drill,” which was the Republican mantra back in 2008. It was was their solution to what the U.S. energy policy should be – just drill offshore.
Well, at least one right-thinking Republican, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger of California, has pulled the plug on Drill, Baby, Drill. He has announced that there will be no offshore drilling in California.
What the U.S. and the world needs is an innovative energy policy, a Low Density Lifestyle energy policy, one that stresses renewable resources, conservation, and a lessening of consumption.
As opposed to Drill, Baby, Drill – which is just more of the same: a tired, antiquated way of thinking, and an expression of a High Density Lifestyle paradigm, a way of life that has created the problems that we are now facing.
And which is the paradigm we need to move away from.
