World Environment Day !

 

images_1528180800951_Social_Environment_Corporate_Nature_Social media today is flooded with environmental  issues today . Some reports claiming clean waters while the other protest against pollution. Save the tree pictures with people hugging the trees , while some talk of endangered animals and wildlife.

While all this is extremely important for the economy and for world , I begin to ponder on my way back from work , what is my contribution to a better environment today ?

I did not plant a new seed today or took bath with only a bucket full of water . Neither did I car pool to work nor did I refuse drinking water from a plastic bottle. So how am I of any use to the environment ? According to the dictionary , the word “ENVIRONMENT” means :

a) the surroundings or conditions in which a person, animal, or plant lives or operates

b) the natural world, as a whole or in a particular geographical area, especially as affected by human activity.

And saving the environment is all about the 5R’s shown below and sustainability is a choice that one makes to make this possible. RIGHT !

 

Returning to the dictionary meaning environment has everything to do with our surroundings and is affected by human activity. OK ! And to make it effective I decided not to change the world around me but to change myself because I know that when I change the environment around me has to change. HOW?

REFUSE : When I refuse to take any crap from anybody I stay in support of myself. When I refuse to say YES to something when my mind says NO I know I am self loving myself.

REDUCE : when I meditate ,exercise and stay happy  I reduce the frequency of negative thoughts or negative elemental’s  attacking me thereby reducing stress.

REUSE : When  I reuse my energy to share happiness and sunshine around me , I see my environment happy and smiling back at me.

REFORM : When I rethink and reform my thoughts to generate loving kindness , I fill myself with gratitude and abundance.

RECYCLE : When I recycle my values and morals, I know that I am instilling life lessons in my children and being about to spent quality time with them.

“I cannot change the direction of the wind , but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination. “

CHANGE THE ENVIRONMENT OF YOUR MIND

When the mind is free of pollution ,

When happiness is free of confusion,

When love is free of restriction,

Then environment will be free of contamination.
