Change your Perception

January 22, 2009

I love this quote from Deepak Chopra in Resurgence magazine. They are talking about new years resolutions and making changes—in particular changes of nonviolence in word and deed.

“CHANGE YOUR PERCEPTION The best thing you can do for the planet is to shift your perception. There is no hope of healing the planet as long as the word ‘environment’ means something separate from you. Each of us has built our happiness on ignoring the Earth’s balance. We wouldn’t do that to our own homes: who would tolerate a living room filled with decaying garbage? We wouldn’t do that to our own bodies: who would deprive their body of half the oxygen it needed? So, forget that you ever heard the word ‘environment’, Instead, think of ‘my world’, and look upon Nature as ‘my body’ in extended form. Having done that, treat the world with care and intimate regard. This should be your guide to a new way of being happy. Until millions of people have made the same shift, saving the planet will remain a worthy cause that never quite gains the whole-hearted support it needs.”
