Thread: Living Earth

    The state of our planet is very saddening. I still believe that activism is a very Bodhisattva thing to do (as long as its a good thing of course). I think we can care about our planet, politics, etc. to work for positive changes that reduce suffering while also not becoming overwhelmed, or sacrificing our peace. Leaning into the sadness instead of away from it. I wrote a short article for Elephant Journal last week talking about how we are outpacing what the planet can keep up with. If anyone wants to read it: "Exponential Growth Is Killing Us" (the original title).

    Thank you very much for your article, Kendrick.
    Your encoragment of our small actions to make a better world for the planet and it's inhabitants is just what we need in these times of environmental despair.

    Wonderful article Kendrick. I agree with what you are saying. My wife and I have been having this same conversation as we are trying to make changes to our household consumption and hoping our seemingly small efforts make a difference.

    Thank you for sharing and reminding us that our efforts do matter.
