Earth is an Extension of You.
Just like the importance of treating our human waste from our bodies, our consumer-based waste stream has to be considered just as important. Our human bodies are perfect machines when we take care of them. We consume products from the outside world into our body systems to be processed, sorted and distributed throughout our body system. Our bodies have the innate knowledge to know what's good for them and what's bad by eliminating toxins through our stool, urine, and sweat. Sometimes, we cause too much damage with toxic substances to our internal organs and digestive fires during the body's elimination process. This causes a buildup of "sludge" or ama that needs to be cleansed and changed with lifestyle adjustments and detoxification. The planet operates and functions in much the same way. We have currently built many systems of consuming, governmental rule, religious rule, and more that provide too much toxicity, and we're building up a lot of sludge.
We're at a turning point on this planet. Mother Earth has offered us a symptom, much like the body does when a disease is present. When a disease presents itself, we find the energy, willpower, and strength to take the disease head-on. Why? Simply because we have a desire to live. A desire to be here on this beautiful planet experiencing life and getting closer and closer to our own Self Realization. As a human species, we must rise up and find that same desire to live by healing the disease that is impacting our planet. The disease is not humanity but has been caused by the decision's humanity has made by how we live our lives in a checked out, consumption-based, expecting "someone else to take care of" the problem sort of way. As we continue to consume, we must implement mindful and sustainable practices that are good for the external environment and the internal. We must bring awareness to the fact that the actions we take and the decisions we make cause an effect. We need to bring mindful attention to our actions so we can ask, "Is this decision and/or action healthy for me, humanity and the environment?"
When disease strikes the body, we bring awareness and work to eliminate the toxins we can. Often, people completely adjust their lives simply because of their will to live. We bring in healthier habits and ingredients into our life and surrender to our bodies' intelligence to handle the rest. We must recognize the fact that the Earth is our extended body. Without the elements of Earth, Water, Fire, Air, and Space, we would not be here. We would not have food to eat, shelter to keep us dry, the warmth of a fire, or clean air to breathe. I will repeat this because it's such a profound statement. The Earth Is An Extension Of Our Body. We are not currently processing our external body (Earth) the way we are helping our internal body to process. We must give our external body healthier habits and ingredients so the intelligence of nature can process effectively. Our mindset needs to change so we can begin to live a life that recognizes this life-sustaining fact. We need to eliminate toxins that are causing the disease we have caused here on Earth by our will to live.
As the strong, bull-headed at times, we, full of energy, love, and dedication, need to rise up as a collective and start the sustainability work on our own lives and the life of the planet. We need to be sure that the relationships we create in our day to day life and with the planet are nurturing and nourishing for one another. The body and Earth teach us everything we need to know to live and prevent disease.
