My 5: Amanda Rooker, Freelance Writer and Spiritual Teacher
BPGL: What are the five most important things we can do to save the planet?
- Live simply.
- Love people, not things.
- Apprentice yourself to the processes in nature. We grow and thrive much like other living things do: slowly, deliberately, determinedly, thriving best in manageable adversity — but we can only compensate for so much before we begin to weaken and die.
- Take it slow. We can’t love the world and the people in it unless we learn to savor everyday experiences.
- Know the difference between building and growing. Don’t water buildings and expect them to grow; don’t hammer seedlings and expect them to live. Hint: Human beings are living things, not buildings.
