10 Ways to Save Mother Earth

I believe we need to make big changes that fly in the face of the way we live now. Some of the ideas may seem inconceivable and possibly naive. But this is my vision.

Until we, as individuals, shift our mindset, I'm not sure if other measures to affect climate change will succeed.

    1. Planet - Society - Economy

    Priorities must be Planet-Society-Economy as opposed to Economy-Society-Planet. The reality of the world we live in is that the economy is the wholly owned subsidiary of the biosphere. Ron Garan, Astronaut

    We focus a lot on the economy at the expense of the planet. A lot of the climate change initiatives seem, to me, to have financial considerations at their core. Maybe if we shifted our mindset, we could each make changes that would impact the world.

    2. No money

    We live on a planet with no money.

    We have enough. Life becomes about what we need rather than what we want. But, magically, what we need and want merge into the same thing. We become at one with the natural world around us. We reconnect to the ground and, in doing so, reconnect to ourselves. We yearn for a life of fulfilment and we find it where we least expect it.

    3. Understanding our similarities rather than our differences

    Our eco system is designed to nurture all life. There is an innate interconnectedness between all the living things existing together on this planet.

    We focus a lot on where we disagree and are different as opposed to what makes us similar. Understanding our interconnectedness could help.

    4. Community

    We have to escape the life of commodity and replace it with the life of community. What’s going to be required is a conversion of consciousness. I call it plant consciousness. Richard Powers.

    Leading on from our interconnectedness is our sense of community. Seeing ourselves as part of a local community where we help each other is a first step.

    In changing our perspective, we shift our focus on to the world around us. We see the symbiotic relationship between us and everything in nature.

    5. Sharing

    We live off the land. We live in community. We are each known for our gifts and we share those freely with our neighbours and the world at large.

    6. Be like trees

    All the trees here, and in every forest that is not too damaged, are connected to each other through underground fungal networks. Trees share water and nutrients through the networks, and also use them to communicate. They send distress signals about drought and disease, for example, or insect attacks, and other trees alter their behavior when they receive these messages. Peter Wohlleben

    Every tree has a role to play in its community. Trees support each other in a variety of ways – making sure that they don’t take all the light from a neighbouring tree, channelling water to others. Theirs is a network of cooperation.

    It doesn’t make evolutionary sense for trees to behave like resource-grabbing individualists,” she says. “They live longest and reproduce most often in a healthy stable forest. That’s why they’ve evolved to help their neighbors. Suzanne Simard

    7. Living seasonally

    The seasons are our clock. We flow with each new cycle. We rest in Winter. We are full of abundant energy in Summer.

    8. 13 months

    I've read recently that the natural cycle is of 13 months of moon phases. I wonder if adopting this could help.

    9. Reconnect with ourselves

    We are often disconnected from our truth, distracted and spending our time denying the type of life we want to lead. I believe when we realign with our true self, we see the world in a different light too.

    10. See yourself as part of nature

    The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature. Joseph Campbell
