We all know that in the universe, energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed. In nature it is the waste products cast off from living beings that are the necessary nutrients that keep the system thriving. Do we recognize that is true in our own lives as well? Can we look at our life’s path with all its twists and turns and remember that nothing is ever wasted, remembering that everything is part of a holistic system that includes everything.
Produce No Waste
The time is Now. We are living in an age of urgency. Everywhere we look there are great issues rising up that need our attention. Can you feel the transformation calling you? The time is now for each of us to claim our passion, our truth, our next step. We must rise up and realize that we can no longer sit in quiet contemplation of truth without then taking the next step towards living the change. The time is now, and there is no time to waste. The Future is calling!
True prosperity comes from knowing that we are surrounded by the resources that we need. Do we look to our so-called waste stream and realize how much of our good is being ignored. We all know the slogan, ‘reduce, reuse, recycle,’ but do we realize that there is great return to be found when we begin to see what is left over or considered garbage as valuable resources to be cherished. Can we see this literally and contemplate what this metaphor means to our inner lives.
Oftentimes when we toss something into a garbage can, we say that we are “throwing it away.” What if there is no “away,” and there is only somewhere else, out of sight. When we talk about this month’s principle: “Produce No Waste,” we must look at this literally and physically. If we are ever to realize our “Global Vision” or “awaken to our spiritual magnificence,” we must bring ourselves into greater integrity and harmony with life, and take every action we can to move to a carbon-neutral and regenerative lifestyle. A true spiritual practice must bring about real outward shifts.
