Healthy Living – Healthy Planet

Day 28 January 28, 2014

Healthy Planet

“If we really want our world to have a cleaner, safer environment the most effective action we can take involves a simple thing we do every day:  choosing what products to eat and to use….Healthy living and a healthy planet go hand-in-hand.” -Michele McKayImage 1 - Version 2

“If we apply the same basic ‘healthy’ principles that we apply to ourselves, directly to our interactions with others and our planet, we will naturally create healthy people and a healthy planet. And by a healthy planet I mean a clean, harmonious, peaceful and abundant world.”  Dr. Karen Lee Paquette (A very good article on healthy living for a healthy planet)

“I believe that the community – in the fullest sense: a place and all its creatures – is the smallest unit of health and that to speak of the health of an isolated individual is a contradiction in terms. (pg. 146, Health is Membership)” ― Wendell Berry

May there be good health and healing for this Earth,
May there be Beauty above me, May there be Beauty below me,
May there be Beauty in me, May there be Beauty all around me.
I ask that this world be filled with Peace, Love, and Beauty.

 -Medicine Grizzly Bear, Earth Healing Ceremony, Spokane Washington 1990
