*Though planning for the future and learning from the past have tremendous value, many of us spend all of time focused on what has been and what is to be, but to fully engage and commit to this moment right now can bring you great serenity.
*Live simply so that others may simply live. If stuff made people happy, there would be nothing but happy people living in Bel Aire, and unhappy living in the bush. Such is not the case.
*Eliminate toxic thinking and toxic chemicals from your life. Most people are quick to protest a hazardous waste site near their home, when the worst hazardous waste site is in their home, under their sink.
*Start with the cheap and easy things to protect our planet. Change your light bulbs. Get a “smart” thermostat. Ride a bike or take public transportation if it is available near you. Become a vegetarian one-day a week. If you like it, add more days.
*See Tip #1 above. Rinse and repeat.
