David Suzuki

History shows us that what we have thought is impossible leads us to new ways of thinking and creating resolutions. With climate change upon us, we have the opportunity to ride the waves one of our greatest evolutionary breakdowns and breakthroughs.

The good news is that we are not alone. Individuals, communities, cities, businesses, schools, faith groups and other organizations are remembering that living on a healthy planet is our human right. We are forced to admit the lies we have been telling ourselves about sustaining a healthy planet. We are called upon to make new choices as if our lives depend on it, because they do!

Feeling powerlessness is one of most pivotal experiences that holds us back. We want to help but wonder if our small steps are enough to make a difference. We hold back out of fear of entering the unknown of new lifestyles, ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. What if we embrace climate change as a path for bringing forth a new context of living? What if acknowledge the reflection of climate change as our internal experience? What if we admit our participation in destructive lifestyles? What if we change the habits of putting trash in our bodies? What if take notice of our polluted thinking? What if we acknowledge how holding back clogs our ability to breathe, suffocating our connection with self and Source?

Choices we can make one step at a time…

  • Ask powerful questions: What is the nature of experiencing the changes we want to see in our world? Let go of what we think we “should” do and stay connected to self and source, allowing access to the resolutions that are ours to participate in. Embrace the parts of ourselves that pollute, trash and over ride our emotions. Reconnect and let those parts of us have a voice about the personal changes we need to make.
  • Take responsibility for the climate change we are creating on the inside. Embrace the aspects of ourselves that pollute, trash and over ride the environment.
  • Listen to other people’s ideas. Many of us are influenced by friends rather than by experts. Engaging in conversations about climate change with friends and family is valuable. Listen closely to their stories, because their ideas are worth listening to. Tell our stories and listen to other people’s ideas.
  • Remember that a healthy planet is not just about a stable climate or political issues. It is about families, communities, energy systems and humanity’s future.
  • Move energy. Dance, sing, shake, vibrate to release the habitual control and contraction. Open the space to allow Source to guide us in this extraordinary time in history.
  • Meditate with intent to listen for insights, guidance and resolutions.
  • Envision and get into bodily felt sense of how we want our experience of our planet to be.
  • Cultivate new habits. Be aware of the devastation and focus on all the great resolutions that are already happening around the world. Educate ourselves about climate change. Al Gore’s Ted Talk, The Case for Optimism On Climate Change, is an excellent source of information. He brings clarity about the solutions that are already in motion. He declares with confidence that we have everything that we need and boldly says “The outcome is fore-ordained because of who we are as human beings. The will to act is in and of itself a renewable resource.”
  • Learn about permaculture and regenerative farming. Become part of the sustainable living education that is being offered. Watch documentaries like “The Biggest Little Farm”, the amazing restoration of 200 acres back to a sustainable environment.
  • Search out and support organizations, like Farmer’s Footprint, that are involved in regenerative farming, Community Supported Agriculture, and Mom’s Across America.
  • Use energy and resources wisely.  David Suzuki’s article, Top 10 Things We Can Do About Climate Change, is a great source of information. 
  • Teach our children how our planet works. Support our children by encouraging school gardening programs, growing a garden and planting trees. Encourage time in nature. Have them watch documentaries such as The Beaver Believers, a film that encourages a new paradigm of partnering with the natural world rather than trying to control and overpower it.

Together we can consume less, waste less, enjoy life more.  We can build a context of living on better not more by focusing on the simple pleasures of life, being with loved ones and making a difference for others.
