For many years now, people have asked me: “What Can One Person Do About Global Warming?” Sometimes they follow with a question about my own climate engagement: “How can you stay engaged and optimistic?”
Confession: I’m not always optimistic or even hopeful. But I decided some time ago that I did not need to be optimistic or hopeful to stay engaged in this vital work.
I DO see this as the challenge of our times: to be joyful and optimistic in the face of the reality of climate and ecological catastrophe.
How do we stay engaged and inspired? It occurs to me that this is a very human question. It may even be a spiritual question–as it is almost the same question as “How do we live fully if we know we are going to die?”
The short answer: Fall in Love. Create. Connect.
Each of us must discover our own path, but we are not alone. As for me, I’ve developed a process that I personally return to again and again to stay creative, connected and inspired.
If you would like to join me, I’ve created a complimentary program where I share this process and some of the materials that keep me engaged in and inspired by this grand adventure. It’s entitled:
