Hi Sandra. There's something about your post that really spoke to me. At one level, I totally agree with what you wrote, & I too see the situation on planet Earth in the same way. At another level, I sense that I'm not as far along the spiritual path as you are, if one can measure such things. I say that because I still do many things which I know harm the planet, such as eating dairy & occasionally even meat, but I do not feel ready, able or willing to give those pleasures up yet. It does feel like a paradox to me, but I can only do my best, & I am where I am on my spiritual path.

Hmmmm.... Now I feel I'm getting into justification, & trying to remove or avoid feelings of guilt. Hey, ho, here I go again! Yet more "stuff" to deal with...
