Blessed2 Posted June 7, 2022 Share Posted June 7, 2022 My girlfriend is quite 'enviromentally conscious', she values ecology a lot. (She really likes value-based things and "living according to your values"!) She's vegan, she doesn't want to waste any products, she doesn't want to travel by plane anymore because of the high emissions. I don't resonate with that so much. I get the enviromental values and the global warming 'worry and stress', but I somehow don't resonate with the mindset. I can't really explain it. It's not rational or logical, or even a value - thing. I just intuitively sense that worrying and stress is counter-productive in ecological sense. I think that if I stay in alignment, if I "go with the flow" without paddling against it, that's pretty much the greatest enviromental service one could do. Again - I can't explain it rationally. I just feel it, and the feeling is so self-evident that it's almost obvious for me. To put it simply, belief in lack and insufficiency does not resonate, and I think that holding these beliefs are in fact counter-productive. For me it's more of a flow-thing. Tapping into the flow of Well-Being. It also might bring some issues to our relationship. For example, I'd like to visit america at some point. Would really like to see for myself what the US and Canada is like. You have a really interesting history, culture and society. But it seems quite impossible to do this with my girlfriend if she doesn't want to travel by plane anymore. Any thoughts / advice? What do you think about enviromentalism and climate change / ecological problems? Quote Mention Everyone is waiting for eternity but the Shaman asks: "how about today?"
