This inspiring Earth Day post, linking sustainable living and spiritual practice, got me thinking today. Author Gail Straub suggests:
"Sustainable living offers us an ongoing opportunity to practice spiritual mindfulness. Each conscious Earth-friendly act - composting, reusing, recycling, repairing, carpooling, eco-wise shopping and conserving water & energy - is also an act of spiritual mindfulness."
Ah, mindfulness. How you tease me. Sometimes I hold you so close and feel your power. Other times, I'm reaching for you in the fog. This timely article reminded me, once again, how "it is mindfulness that transforms the mundane into the sacred."
So today, Earth Day, I'm reprioritizing my efforts to live sustainably. I'm revisiting ways my family can conserve, reuse & recycle. And I'm recommitting to being mindful - every day, every moment and in every way.
Happy Earth Day!
