Existence is a seamless whole. How could it be otherwise?
My life is seamlessly integrated into the life of the Earth and the Universe. It is one system. One body.
And there are many simple life-centered choices that appear to be beneficial on all levels (of course, it depends on what we mean by “beneficial”):
- Taking care of myself. When I am more in balance, it benefits those around me.
- Eating low on the food chain and less processed (less resources consumed)
- Eating local (connection with land, money stays in the community, less resources consumed)
- Low consumption (simple living > more time for family/friends/community)
