Green Beatitudes ~ What I Would Say If I Were Speaking Last

By

A few days ago a friend of mine was preparing a speech for an Interior Design industry function and asked me what I would say if I were speaking about being green.   There were other speakers before her, architects and builders and she would be the last to speak.  I put myself in that position and can only imagine how the audience at that point would be exhausted with data, tired of fear inducing talk about chemicals, bored with the same rhetoric in general. So I told her I would just say the following: 

Be Grateful ~ when you are in a state of being grateful it is quite difficult to be wasteful.

Be Aware ~ of the needs of others. When you are cognizant of the many individuals that are in a state of need, it is unthinkable to dispose or hoard items rather than donate what could be life supporting to others.

Be Protective ~ when your treat the earth like family or a friend you are mindful of not wanting to harm it's well being with disregard.

Be Vigilant~ open your eyes and your mind to new ways of doing old things in a more eco-responsible fashion.

Be Generous ~ volunteer your time to an environmental cause that embodies a solution to a problem that you can relate to. 

Be Nurturing ~ plant a tree, plant a green seed in a child's mind, plant good will in general.

Be Proactive ~ ask your grocer, your home supply store, your office, etc  to obtain merchandise and supplies that are less toxic and safer for everyone. Ask repeatedly if necessary.

Be Joyous ~ operating in a joyful state does less harm, protects your immune system and that of others, induces optimism and attracts a kinder attitude in general, I can't think of anything greener than that.

Hi Mary, in the end, it appears that ensuing behaviour really has the greatest impact when enouraging  a point of view.  Words ring hollow without intentions that are followed through. I have a long way to go as well.  I just thought for an audience, it is perhpas more striking to convey  a message of action and do's than a bunch of do-nots. Thank you for the ecouragment to use this in my talk.

This is a very original thought... it looks ready to hang on a wall for continued reflection.

What a nice comment Chuck. It is great to run into you again. Whenever I read your blog or a comment of yours, I always think you, as one of the fortunate among us, to have been in the midst of such a literary genious as Borges while at the Argentinian deli.

Hi Meris, thank you for the lovely compliment.  I mainly blog for one of my companies that needs a boost.  It is the only wayI feeI that I can publically set it apart from all the other carpet and air duct cleaning companies that flood the market, whether they are eco-friendly or not. We do pro-bono work for lower income families that are in need with chidren who are ill with repsiratory illnesses and such, but that info to our consumer base is, and should be, unknown. solely for advertising purposes.  It's increasingly difficult to stay on top of the search engines as everyone is getting SEO savvy as well.  I really don't know how realtors do it!
