"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



Continuously nutrition pieces of your minds and health must follow.


“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Eco-Conscious Feet


All this talk about the ecology is wonderful. We are beginning to accept responsibility for our planet whose declining health has come at our hands . Hopefully talk will give rise to sustainable practices that increase understanding and appreciation. I'm half-afraid we are simply “Eco” prefixing: attaching quick (pre) fixes to programs as appeasements to the fad of the moment.

We'll know we're serious about eco-mindfulness when individuals, businesses, schools, not-for profits and governments are doing more each year. It will be confirmed when the human race is a race to see who can do the least to harm the earth. We'll know we've achieved Eco-Consciousness when our efforts are internalized and coordinated. Eco-points will then be a part of every mission statement, not just appended programs.

By the way, many of us were ecologically-minded when Eco wasn't cool. There was no word for it we were just trying to use and not misuse what was so abundantly and freely given. We had the whole world in our hands. This is the kind of power we still have. If we use this power to do something by doing less, the ecology will cure itself.

In other words, the ecology doesn't need our pseudo-superior intelligence to fix a GD thing. It will breathe better if we simply keep our big funky footprints to ourselves.

  1. Since everything in the natural and supernatural world is connected, it’s going to be interesting to see how the average human who seems to suffer from an ever increasing divide from himself tackles this man- made phenomenon. As far as interest goes, you’re right, this is not a new issue for “back in the day” folk who have and still do crusade for the cause however their plan can still be found flawed. Meaning, upon careful examination even the most avid naturalist can be seen as a contributor to the problem. Not in obvious ways such as throwing garbage in the seas, earth or skies but in ways that lend strength to weakness such as impatience, bitterness, unreasonable fear, injustice, etc. I believe these intangible items have just as much power to physically pollute and disrupt the flow of the earth as the tangible ones do and “doing less” of them will also help bring about authentic change. I’m a little off base perhaps but forever committed to the possibilities. I guess that’s where it starts and ends. Thanks for the spark.

  2. Interesting combination of the natural with the supernatural. Hadn't considered it but since we are both tangible and intangible as is nature then the spiritual pollution that is created will affect the planet as well. This is a fabulous extension of thought.
