Consume Only For Today

More than 20 years ago I was in a picnic with some bunch of people...

Those days were my ''green days''...

After the picnic I was not happy with the rubbish was spread around and suggested to collect it ...

As I remember people were having fun with the idea...They were saying there were more serious problems for us such as wars, drugs, labour rights etc...Surely I was aggreed with all these facts ...But I could not simply bare us to ''polute'' the land ... Nevertheless after some negotiations we cleaned the area:)

I said to people so that the enviromental issues will be our first priority after 20 years...

So here we are...

Birds are dying, hard to find clean water & air , foods are contaminated, lots of natural hazards etc....You know the story...

60 years ago world population was Billion 2.5 and now Bio 7...

We consume crazyly ...If all of us consume like so called American sytle we need 4-5 more world...This is not my quote but I totally aggree with it...

Many people have jeeps and release lots of CO2 and go miles away for their weekly or monthly shoppings in US...What happens after words? Lots of things we bought generally go to rubbish bin...Because of they go off or their expiry date...

We order more than we can eat...All of them go to rubbish bin again...

We buy goods with fancy packaged so that we can keep them longer at home...We create more than and more rubbish...Montains of rubbish will surrender us one day... In my childhood rubbish truck was coming once in a week and we were not producing this much of rubbish those days...

I suggest you all to watch the cartoon named WALL-E...Very wise one...

I lived in India almost a year like a local citizen...I had great chance to observe society and their way of living ...

Majority of the population is very poor...Wheather is so hot but they have no enough to buy fridge...Acoording to our western mind they have very low living standarts than...

I will request you to extend your perseption now...

Because of this ''poor living standarts'' they consume daily...

They buy the foods and other things for lunch and they cook their lunch...They cook for all family but just for their need...Because they can not save the food afterwords it goes off so quickly...Than again they buy things for dinner and cook the dinner...

So , who is on the side of Mother Earth? Which way of living supporting her ? Which way of living is realy poor?

I am not suprise when I see US ''Consume for your Life'' attituded economy is falling and ''Consume for Today'' attituded countries like India are rising...Very interesting contrast...

No creature on earth except human beings store food or their other needs for longer period...This may be a kind of reflection of our fears...Even shortage feeling which creates even more crises in fact...

This morning we were disccussion these issues with my mother and father in the great family breakfast due to some natural hazards in the world...My mother gave a great example...

Imagine you have a house and your tenant just ruin your place...Breake it, pollute it...Would you just watch? No ...You would first give couple of written warnings and than you would go to court and take your tenant out and clean the place than again seek more a much wiser tenant...

Bingo...

Our relation is like this with Mother Earth...

Our mind says we are the owner of the land, animals, trees etc...and we can do what we like...

Time to wake up from our illusion...We are ''the tenant''...We are just one of the species on the Mother Earth...

There are universal laws so that every little things is happening according to them...This is not ''an idea'' or '' a belief'' ...This is a scientefic reality...

Only by living accordingly to these laws and support them with our existence we can keep our existance on the Mother Earth...

This is the fact for all ''structures'' which created by human mind...

Countries, economic systems, organizations, associations, companies, corporations, families, religions, educational systems, law systems, medical systems , families untill to a one single person...

Time has come for us to do everything in ''RE'' way...

Re-mind ourselves we are the one of the species living on the earth like a tenant...All creatures on the earth are like our brothers & sisters...Trees , mountains, animals, rivers , seas and lakes...We are all a big family and we are all equal...

Re-describe again our missions and visions for betterment of Mother Earth & All Humanity...

Re-Solve the problems we solved before
Re-Walk the road we walked before
Re-Set our minds we set before
Re-View everthing we reviewed before...
Each and every part and experince of human story on earth have to RE examimed...

Because we are at the point where there may be no RE-TURN...

All our concepts, beleifs and actions have to be RE overviewed and RE determined...

One by one...

Is this way of living serving to Mother Earth and All Humanity?

Is this type of organization still supporting contunity of Human Life on Earth?

Is this action still be well accepted by people's heart?

We have to ask many questions and seek the answers in our hearts...

Yes , evolution is continuing towards for the betterment...Time to choose where we want to be...

Today can be a starting point for all of us...

Just simply by choosing less packaged products or choosing the products produced by World Friendly brands...Surely try to consume less...

Even one single person's choice is so important now...

Re-MEMBER '' the Butterfly Effect''...

with love
