Indulge in this thought process with me.
Not solely Global Warming, but all existential problems are solvable through the integrity of the individual.
What do I mean by that?
Well, I mean integrity as it relates to personal responsibility and strong moral principles. I mean individuals as a collective, in conjunction – people across the world fundamentally taking accountability for all aspects of their lives, and choosing to reorganise their life under the rubric of something truly meaningful.
I really enjoy the work of Dr. Peterson in this respect, who says you can change the world by cleaning your room.
If you were expecting a clever technological remedy for climate change you won’t find it here. However, I am a firm believer that if you can consistently take the smaller actions associated with personal responsibility, you will come to a place where your burden on the world is so light, that you can carry more weight – you can take more responsibility.
If you can’t even clean your own room, stop and think before you go about trying to reorganise the world.
“To put the world in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order; we must first cultivate our personal life; we must first set our hearts right.”
Global warming is a highly complex puzzle, far too difficult for one person alone to solve. In each of our lives we all have our own personal puzzles that we try to deal with day by day, week by week. Paying rent, trying to exercise, eat healthier, solving problems in our relationships and – cleaning our room.
Once we solve these simpler puzzles in our own lives, not only does this free up our resources available to tackle global warming, but also, we will be able to bring the experience and wisdom of solving the puzzles of our own lives to the table.
It’s not one person’s responsibility to save the world – its collective responsibility.
The answer is you.
Start with you.
