Wondering Wednesdays, Baby Acres, and Human Rights as Justice

Each person needs access to information, and to community level places for gatherings and entertainment, provided by local libraries. Each person needs health care, and the health of every resident in a society affects every other resident, from the hospital system right down to the sewage and water treatment systems. Transportation is a concern that touches every resident as well, whether driving in a private car, or riding on a trolley, and the culture and education of every resident of a society inform how those modes of transportation will be used, or abused. Yet, information and communication systems, sanitation, transportation, and even schools all impact the local environment, and also pull resources from the local environment. And, as many Native American Tribal councils, like that of the Black Hills, in South Dakota, can confirm, not all lands are treated with equal care. Thus, climate and land or commons based justice must also be considered, as part of the foundation of any just society.

Alphabet soup for the soul – “G’

Words from Walden

G is for Gratitude

“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see”

-Dr Robert Holden-

If the first thing you say every morning when you open your eyes is “thank you, I am grateful to be alive” then you’re proactively starting your day in a positive state of mind. Conversely, if you check your phone to find out what you missed, then you are starting from a reactive state of mind.

The Wise sage said: ‘As you begin your day so too, the rest of your day will unfold’.

By waking up in gratitude daily, eventually, with practice over time, you will find many things to be grateful for.

The truth is we should all be grateful for everything in our lives, the good and the bad. There are times when stormy weather may cloud our judgement…
