During this holiday season, if you are a person who puts up a christmas tree, would you please be so kind and thoughtful as to get a tree with roots and then plant it when the season is over. It is terribly destructive and wasteful to cut down a tree for such a short amount of time. Also, if you buy gifts during this time of year, please be so kind and thoughtful as to purchase as little new things as possible, what you do buy new, buy local, and package in old newspapers, magazines, etc… instead of murdering more trees just to create something you will then throw into the trash that will end up trashing the planet. And instead of rushing around to see how much more stuff you can buy, how about instead, would you please be so kind as to share more time with friends and family and donate some of the money you would otherwise spend on yet more stuff that steals from the planet and the future and give it to an organization doing important work in the world or to someone who is deeply in need right now. Thank You for your consideration of the planet and ALL its beings and to future generations.
However you honor this time of the year as we cycle into the next one, may you and yours be happy, healthy, peaceful, loving, joyous, and caring and sharing with all.
Love and Blessings,
