Globally this week we celebrate Earth Day April 22. Various events will be held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. I will be hosting an event as well on April 23 which will include planting trees in a nearby park. The weekend is to remind us of the importance of Mother Earth and encourage respect for life. It is a reminder that one person’s single action can make a difference and when we add them all up, they make a profound difference. To find out how you can contribute to lowering your carbon footprint, you are welcomed to contact me to hear about the upcoming events.
Now let’s look at our environment in a personal way. Our outer environment is the sum total of all the sources through which we are influenced through the aid of our five senses. What we see, hear, touch, taste and smell. For example, our environment consists of the books we read, the people with whom we associate, the community in which we live, the nature of the work in which we are engaged, the country where we reside, the clothes we wear and the religious training we received as children.
In addition, we have our inner environment. This is harder to see as we have no pictures of our mind. The mind is an activity. So our inner environment is the activity of our mind. That activity translates into the results we see daily in our outer environment. Whatever our influences are, they affect our thoughts and they, in turn, affect our feelings, which in turn affect our actions and finally our results.
The mind feeds upon that which we supply it or that which is forced upon it through our environment. Therefore it is important to select our environment as much as possible with the purpose of supplying the mind with appropriate material that sustains our overall purpose.
If your environment is not to your liking, then change it. First, you need to find the correct environment that will support your desires and concentrate on this picture until you transform it into reality. Be careful who you hang out with. Make sure everything and everyone support your desires.
Remember even the little details of your environment are important. What you wear gives messages to your mind that can either lift you up or bring you down. For instance, the condition of your desk gives you clues as to the state of your mind and will affect your feelings about your environment.
Our personal environment is crucial to examine, as the condition of it will either make us or break us. Sometimes we need that mastermind alliance of two or more people in the spirit of perfect harmony for the purpose of attaining a desired outcome, a blending of minds to help us see things about our inner environment that are not so easy to see on our own.
