liberation theology:

What we do for others, we do for ourselves.

All of us are part of one human family. And we are all bound to our four-legged and winged family as well. In fact all living beings are connected on this beautiful planet we call home.

This coming year is a new opportunity to be aware of how all life is connected. It’s a new chance to live in gratitude and deep appreciation for the gifts we have been given. This new year is a time for us to ┬ásave ourselves by saving each other as we all work together to save our planet.

 

the answer is less stuff

 

I am a fan of this website on living a simple life by Joshua Becker

The older I get the more I realize that happiness doesn’t come from things. The joy we all seek comes from relationships and an inner recognition of how truly blessed we are.

More stuff is not the answer. Contentment comes from our awareness that the more stuff we own the less freedom we actually have. We truly do not need more stuff.

We need more silence, more solitude and a deeper appreciation for all that we already have.

But, that would be un-American, wouldn’t it?
