Do something about the mental ‘litter’

Some time ago, I attended a peace-building summit, where there were speakers representing different faiths and various countries in the Middle East. During the summit, I felt that an incredible sense of unconditional love was being expressed. Many of the wonderful speakers talked about what they were doing to promote peace and told those of us attending the conference that we could each take effective action, starting with ourselves. It was truly a moving experience, and I wondered how I could take action.

One morning around the end of the summit, I was out running and passed some pieces of trash I hadn’t noticed, despite having run on this trail before. I started to run by the first piece but then thought, “No, you have to do something about it.” I turned back, picked it up, and then saw four other pieces that had blended in with the path. I picked them up, too. On a regular day, I might have run by the litter without noticing it, but because my consciousness was raised by my experiences at the summit, I was more aware of my surroundings.
