The Trashiest Meditation; Our Carbon Footprint
In the depths of 2020, we are drowning in trash, as we have been for decades now. It has filled our oceans so full of debris that not even the Earth’s natural filtration systems can keep up any longer. We are seeing our planet dying, but we still package everything as if everything’s fine.
Our human waste is one of the top three heart breakers I think about and get sick to my stomach over every day. I feel a deep guilt for the carbon footprint I leave, and minimize it as much as possible, although this is definitely a work in progress when you have a family. We have been continually adjusting from this to that in aims of being more conscious consumers, but that alone isn’t enough to save the day!
I can tell you to recycle and cut down your carbon footprint- but the world needs you to do your job, which still requires you to have a carbon footprint. It’s a double-edged sword. But- something can be done- passively in the background as we carry on with our day to day lives.
Below are some examples of small, quick meditative and affirmation practices that you can fit into your daily life, and make a lasting impact on this specific issue: Our Carbon Footprint. A collective of specific affirmations taking place every day over an extended period of time can result in some real change that we can see, hear, and feel in the world around us. These are suggested affirmations ready for you, but do not feel married to the exact format. Use them as guides to find the tiny bits of your day that can aid you in manifesting the world you want to see.
Happy Earth Day, Happy Trash Day, and Happy Meditation Day! ~ Much love, Bare Roots Energy
