Birds want you to make a difference.
4 Ways in which you can make a difference:
Every wisdom in history builds on a foundation of acting with compassion.
Through compassion we show kindness toward others. We practice goodness. We participate as positive members of humanity.
What to do: Make kindness a daily priority.
Why: The more happiness that you cause for others, the more happiness you will have for yourself.
Every relationship, agreement, and project depends upon truth.
With truth we make good decisions. With truth we create trust. And with truth we save lives.
What to do: Insist on truth. Support media that reports truth, support advertisers that tell the truth about their products, buy from companies that tell the truth.
Why: Living in an environment of truth creates a sense of moral well-being.
Every investment depends upon protecting the principal.
And our environment is an investment that we depend upon for everything.
What to do: Use resources carefully. And dispose of trash properly. (I’m sure you already knew this. And so what else can you do?)
Why: You will feel better knowing that you are part of the solution.
Everyone is responsible for the future of our society.
We are connected through our relationships. And we are participants through our actions.
What to do: First, start small by making your personal world an example for others to follow. Then magnify your efforts by joining organizations that work to make the world better. I recommend Audubon and Sierra Club.
Why: We feel better when we know that we make a difference.
By the way, these are the essential elements of a healthy, sustainable society.
