What are your biggest struggles with change?

Watch Woody Harrelson‘s opinion on the people vs. corporations, and then read on below because I need your help!  Help me, help you….. bonus if you know which movie I’m parodying…

Did you know that our issues are in our hands this way?  But there is more at play than just corporations isn’t there?  You gotta lotta stuff going on in your life that make these “easy” changes difficult.  It’s easier said than done, because if it was that easy, we’d already be making greater progress now that so many people are aware of the shit going on.

I’m working on some ideas to help you switch to a lifestyle that better matches your beliefs and values to help the world.  One that supports your change but without all the pressure and fear that you’re not doing it right, or all the overwhelm that comes with such an enormous transition.

But I need your help.  I need to understand what some of the biggest issues are that people are facing so I can make those the top priority instead of just using what I know from my own experiences and research.

Would you help me out and tell me in the comments below what your biggest struggles are with social and environmental change?  I would love to help more people start making the changes through this website, Facebook group (come join me!), and some materials I’m creating, but I would rather hear from all of you what you need specifically, so that it will make the biggest difference!  Can’t wait to hear from you!

What does your soul have to do with the environment?

If you had the power to change what is happening to our planet, would you act on that power? When you look at your own life, and understand the constant weight from the perspective of consuming, and realize its an addiction, you start to realize what a heavy burden that is to carry.

However, we say it in different terms. We express this weight as being unfulfilled, unhappy or like something is missing from our lives. The truth is we have become so disconnected from our souls, that we no longer find meaning in what is truly important to each of us. Life. Sharing of life. Being connected with ourselves and one another. Doing happy things and feeling true contentment inside.

When you work on your own personal development with the environment and community in mind, you learn to develop yourself in an all-inclusive way. You get in touch with your soul, your passions, your loved ones and simultaneously realize that although technology is fun, it’s never as much fun as laughing with another. Material wealth cannot fulfill us, and the environment is showing us this fact.

The environment reflects the state of humanity. We all have the power to change what is happening to our world. Your soul is your power. It connects you to the Source of life, whether you call it God or something else. When you  tune into that power, your wants, desires and addictions fade. Your complaints turn into compliments, your sorrow turns into gratitude. Your anxiety turns into peace. You transform into the very thing you seek to fulfill you.

Everyday activism isn’t just about money and volunteering. It’s a lifestyle choice that involves developing yourself into a happy person through contemplative reflection of who you are everyday, maybe every moment. It is also contemplative reflection on how you treat others, what you buy, how you fulfill your passions, how you manage your emotions, what choices you make. Every aspect of your life can change in a way that creates peace and stability inside you, while fulfilling your passions and joyfully connecting with others. Environmental conservation becomes a side effect of your happiness and willingness to do what is right.
