Thoughtful Thursday: What Would I Do?

In a forum, we were asked: What would I do for the Earth in regards to climate change?

This was my answer!

In short, I have 3 answers! First I ask Her (per biomimicry). What would Nature do about climate change? What is She doing? … is more accurate. Do we know what we are really addressing, in the service of Earth? We need to dig deep (unmentionables – where are we fooling ourselves? advocate for electric cars? non-regenerative attitude (“Dominion over”)? transportation of food/ the food system? simplify, set maximum house sizes, ban grass cutting? Cut consumption by closing everything down one day a week, like to good ‘ole days? Bring back ‘Eat Together,’ for Earth Day, celebrate trees and promote – “Hug a tree today! Touch it’s bark. Say thank you. Have pancakes and maple syrup!”).

2nd – We could consider what it means to act as the new archetype being called for, and do just that  – to write the new myth. Earth Warriors?

3rd – I share my own soul journey. I have been up in the canopy (above and away from the destruction), loving the view, my vision, my perspective from being away from it all. But it is time to come down, to ground. I am that little nuthatch who is head first making her way down the tree trunk. It is almost the start of the year of the Pig. We need to find Joy in playing in the muckiness. It rhymes with luckiness. 🙂 Let’s Play Piggy! And get Muddy! Mud fight …. !!! (This image from the Animal Totem Tarot by Leeza Robertson)
