What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror image of what we are doing to ourselves and one another - Gandhi
A contribution to the Great Big Green Week
When we think of the environmental crisis we often look to governments and world leaders for solutions. But as well as considering the bigger picture, perhaps we need also to look inwards. If I want to live in a more harmonious way with nature and the world around me, to what extent do my inner world and activity reflect that? Meditation helps us to increase our inner awareness. As we clean out our inner world, we contribute to making the outer world a kinder, safer and more beautiful place for all living beings.
