I live simply in many ways by choice, and in some ways because I think it’s the right thing to do. And sometimes I wonder, does it really matter if I re-use plastic bags or keep my use of energy to a minimum? I mean with all the billions of us here on the planet, how much difference do a few bags or kilowatts make?
If I’m tired, especially, it can be a challenge.
But yeah… it matters.
It matters because of how I feel maybe as much as because of the actual energy quotient. There’s that inner gyroscope that shows me when I am balanced and when I am not. If I forget to take my bags to the market, I am less in harmony with the All. Somebody else might not have that connection in their personality, but I do, so it matters.
We cast longer shadows than we know. And maybe every little bit will help.
