When our homes are in disarray our well being suffers. For too long we have treated the earth as primarily a resource for satisfying our material cravings. As a result, the earth is in disarray, struggling, reflecting our own addiction to the sensation of having new and more stuff. What if we treated the earth as our home, a sacred place to renew our souls, to restore our hearts, to recharge our batteries, to connect with what is, the possibility for peace within? Maintaining her beauty, preventing further pollution, and addressing the change of climate are the basics of proper housekeeping for our own sake and the sake of future generations to come.
