What life choices we make is linked to our very freedom. We, Americans must become lean and green. A green liberation movement will show us both how we must become more responsible and our ability to ecologically respond. Simply, if we engage in wholesome action that benefits all we become less imprison by our harmful habits. We now must shift from consumers to conservers entering into a green diet of lessening both our waste and waists. Yes, we must eat more GREENS! This is rabbit food not rabid food to lessen our country’s chances of HEART ATTACK. An ethic of obesity must now change to more wholesome diet for the planet. When we take care of the world we help ourselves. Since what goes around, comes around, our individual actions directly have consequences on us. Over consuming on our planet creates lots of personal and global suffering besides breaking collective heart.
The results of humans overindulgence are clear. Excessive overeating can leads not just to obesity yet other health dangers of obesity are well documented. Four of our leading causes of death in
As a responsible society we must prevent a double-standard where we say one thing but differently act. Proclaiming we support reducing global warming, then purchase an energy inefficient car is hypocritical. We waste our good drinking water to make our lawns greener or buy bottle water creating billions of plastic bottles. To truly be free our words must be consistent with our deeds. If we give the best to the world we will enjoy many happy returns!
Today’s culture provides us many opportunities to reduce waste choices by simply reducing our consumption. Less can become best! Using less food, water, paper, plastic, oil and any natural resource just requires awakening that all things are valuable. Walking, using public transportation or riding your bicycle can also result in greater belonging with your community.

Can we develop new environmental behavior based on supporting biological needs instead of reinforcing greed and apathy?
The fundament human challenge is how perceive our environment? Are we are separate or apart of our planet? A tangle of pathology happens because we keep thinking we need more material things to feed our anxiousness because we feel threaten by our natural world.

Our collective pursuit of happiness comes from understanding how we create global suffering. There are very serious human consequences when we engage in destructive habits whose roots are greedy, arrogant and indifferent. Once we see beyond the price of things and value of nature’s intrinsic worth—a worth that may be expressed more in aesthetic or spiritual reasons.
As our consciousness evolves to see ecological’ arguments appeal to human self-interest then a connection can be made that our human health is apart of our ecosphere. Can we see our world as just a greater extension of ourselves if we can become deeply in touch. Our human survival depends on healthy environment that preserve the native flora and fauna. To flourish in our physical environments humans must create healthy boundaries. This need is a moral concern since such self-interest that does not take in account the larger world has serious ethical questions.
As we lessen our desire to consume we find a new liberation. As we curb our obsessive hunger a new form of prosperity will unfold.
There is a strong connection between increased well-being, happiness and our national security. Thrift, generosity, sharing and other wholesome measures promote freedom. Wasteful consumption violates the very values this nation was founded on. We have a choice to become free. Our spiritual survival depends that we understand our connection with the earth and appropriately respond. Such action is both kind and will benefit all things. Courage becomes evident only when we quiet our minds and listen to our heart. Once we show such reverence in conserving then we can celebrate.
