Sustainable People Creating a Sustainable World

May 29, 2015


You may be wondering what I mean by “sustainable people.”

The definition of “sustainabe” in Wikipedia includes:

  • “The capacity to endure.”
  • “How biological systems remain diverse and productive over time. For humans it’s the potential for long term maintenance of well being, which in turn depends on the maintenance of the natural world and natural resources.”

With everything we’re hearing about the need to support the sustainability of our planet, I rarely hear about how we can cultivate a sustainability that radiates from our insides out. 

From my perspective, sustainability begins within each one of us, and if you really want to restore the sustainability of our planet, you need to look at how to be sustainable from your inside out.

 If you’re still wondering what I’m talking about, or wondering how to do it, start by asking yourself the following questions:

(1) How am I treating my planet in the very same way that I am treating myself?

  • How am I exhausting the resources of my body?
  • How am polluting myself?
  • How am I ignoring my own wants and needs?
  • How am I using myself like a machine that I will take care of sometime in the future? 

(2) Am I being part of the resolution or am I part of the problem?

  • Am I someone who makes a problem out of the solution?
  • Am I bringing resolution to the relationship I have with myself, or am I pushing my issues out and pointing my fingers at other people?
  • Am I asking how I can be part of the resolution, or do I use problems to drain my energy and the energy of the people around me?

 (3) Am I remembering that I have nucleus effect? That the choices that I make my choices have effect on everyone and everything around me? 

  • Am I taking 100% responsibility for the issues in my life, and issues I see in the world?
  • Am I making choices for myself that support my experience of sustainable health, sustainable relationship and sustainable abundance?
  • Am I willing to observe myself and the others around me to acknowledge the effect that I am having on myself and others?

(4)  Am I willing to ask myself these following two questions and allow myself to listen for the answers?

  • What is the nature of experiencing sustainability from my inside out?
  • What is the nature of experiencing sustainability as an integral way of life in the world?

Becoming a sustainable person requires:

  • Embracing sustainability as a natural aspect of your being, and the world around you.
  • Renewing your energy by staying rested and using our personal energy wisely.
  • Giving your body what it needs, including  food, water, air and movement.
  • Listening to your emotions and not pushing them away to “get things done”.
  • Following your heart and doing the things that you love.
  • Allowing the bodily felt sense of love to move through you.
  • Connecting with yourself and the mysteries of life.
  • Taking quiet meditative time to listen to your inherent knowledge, and allowing it to guide you in being sustainable from your inside out.
  • Being present for the opportunities that are yours to be part of the resolution

These are the kinds of questions that lead to a sustainable kind of wellness, a whole being wellness that allows you to feel  connected, energized, empowered and free. 

To being part of the resolution,
