What if our choices in life were around whether we wanted to work for money or learn to sustain ourselves?
What if we planted some trees in downtown Phoenix, actually, not just some, but a whole forest ;)? What if we created a gigantic urban community garden, added some huge, gorgeous public art, created a nice, little kitchen with Nutribullets in it 🙂 (Truly, I gave a Nutribullet to a friend on food stamps, and he said his family finally started eating their fruits and veggies with it (and enjoyed it!). He actually couldn’t eat most vegetables before this blender due to dental problems, and they cut their food bill by $100 each month!) What if we added educational classes to teach those with no-to-low income how to subsist off the land, and then they could potentially teach the classes themselves, and dedicate all of this space to our homeless?
What if we made it so that being homeless wasn’t scary but a means to learning sustainability for oneself and create abundance and education for others?
What if our choices in life were whether we wanted to work for money or learn to sustain ourselves? Would that help resolve some of the fear that pushes us towards staying in jobs that don’t feed our souls? Would it resolve that keeps us in this materialistic loop that is hurting our environment (and our psyches) through over-consumption?
Maybe, possibly, hopefully, this is already happening? Maybe we just need more of it.
