Renewal for the whole earth

What will it take for the renewal that really secures a healthy environment? 

Originally published online on June 9, 2022

New strength and health for our lives and our environment is a project for us all. In college, I got a taste of this while working with fellow students to start a recycling program. Later, I got further involved while working with engineers around the world on environmentally friendly home appliances. Today, I’m giving much thought to an improvement that’s more basic: What will it take for the renewal that really secures a healthy environment? 

The answer begins with something that happens individually—something that, if we can commit to it, will bring about a grand change collectively. It’s a renewal that’s essentially in thought and fundamentally spiritual. More God-inspired thinking does so much good. It brings about positive changes in everything. 

The first thing that’s helpful to understand is that we are not, as we seem to be, living in a material universe or experiencing conditions outside of consciousness. The universe is actually a mental concept, and our experiences are products of the way we think and live. Human experience is a kind of canvas in front of us, and the more of God’s qualities we see and express, the better things turn out. Consequently, improvement for our lives moves in tandem with inspired thought and prayer. I’m talking about a spiritual renewal that has a tangible effect on our bodies and our environment.
