Purpose - what brings meaning to my life?
Our planet is a closed system - like a box.
If we keep taking raw materials out of the box and never put anything back in to generate more, then guess what? A day comes where there is nothing left in the box.
Our relationship of give-and-take with the planet and its natural resources reflects our human values. Join this free Zoom meeting which further discusses the need for us to return to basic values as part of ensuring our planet's future.
This meeting will also be available as a recording.
... one ECO-BRICK at a time! They estimate 60% of Britain's plastics is still going into landfill or incinerators - and that's what doesn't end up scattered around streets, fields, and in our oceans.
Here is a neat way to put non-recyclable inorganic materials such as cellophane to good use ... turn them into ECO-BRICKS!
So much has already been observed and said about how the COVID-19 virus has forced a quantum change in how we live and in what we consider as important. Even when the virus becomes more controlled, it will take a long time for things to return to the way they were, and in some cases, have we discovered that in fact, that isn't what we want or need anymore?
When something so unpredictable and with such far-reaching effects such as COVID-19 can happen, then let us use that as a sign for HOPE. Even although we humans, who frankly have intellects the size of insects compared to a Higher Power, can't always navigate ourselves to a more elevated sense of purpose or being, a greater sense of order always prevails after unforeseen chaos.
As someone noted: the word 'emergency' contains in its stem, the words 'emerge' and 'emergence'.
Whatever we learn about ourselves during such 'chaos' and which is both useful and encouraging in terms of helping identify our spiritual values, these are the gifts to treasure and take with us as we continue forward on this journey ... together.
