How Green is Your Mind?
Suppose you were a car and your brain/thoughts/mind were the exhaust pipe. Every time you had a negative thought of any kind, your exhaust pipe would be giving off fumes. Looked at this way, how much are you polluting the atmosphere? This approach gives us responsibility not just for our behaviour, but our thinking. From this perspective one might say that the self righteousness of some climate change activists was as polluting as someone who supports fossil fuels, because self righteousness polarises and therefore pollutes.
Could the climate emergency also be triggering a spiritual emergence? Can we approach the encompassing challenge of the climate and biodiversity crisis, not with fear, anger and urgency but with acceptance, compassion and dedication, thereby opening the space for the emergence of meaning and purpose – and hope vested in action?
If you want to explore thinking about climate change from the inside-out – which does not negate action, but suggests less polarised forms – then come and join us.
