Tiny Puzzle Pieces


“When we see others as the enemy we risk becoming what we hate. When we oppress others, we end up oppressing ourselves. All of our humanity is dependent upon recognizing the humanity in others.”  ~ Desmond Tutu

Each of us possesses a piece of the puzzle to make humanity work and save our planet. Great and small minds alike have ideas that can work; we just don’t know we have such a thing hidden deep inside us.

Overcrowding, pollution of all kinds, hatred, greed, evil ideologies, etc., we do have the answers to solve. It just takes a strong desire and a pulling together. Maybe that’s our calling and why we are here on Planet Earth.

The only thing we have to fear is the fear inside of us and the fear and mistrust we have for one another. The only way to combat this fear is acceptance. We need to get over our prejudices, superiorities, judgments, and all around memes in our minds.

Find out what your tiny puzzle piece can do to make a difference. Crafting great letters to your representatives, writing articles to inform and educate, volunteering for cleanups, volunteering for anything, asking your neighbors not to use poisons on their lawns and plants, watching out for each other, and just being kind to all beings.

If we don’t come together with a tiny piece of the puzzle and start making changes we might all be doomed. Dig deep and find your power. A little bit here, a little bit there, it all will make a difference.

Let’s all walk gentle upon our Earth and feel the need to protect her and all the beings that live here, including the crazy humans. If we don’t, who will?

“The Earth is just not our environment. We are the Earth and the Earth is us. We have always been one with the Earth.” ~Thich Nhat Han

    Love this and this is so true. Once we’ve found those puzzle pieces and capable of being an influence to the world as a change agent, it feels so good. We never know who will get inspired by our actions.

    It’s very demoralizing sometimes, when you work toward something for so long and see no improvement. I’ve been an environmental lawyer for 29 years and it seems things are going backwards. Thanks for the reminder, Michele, about just doing my puzzle piece’s part. xo

    So very well said, Michele. More acceptance and less ignorance is something I dream is possible, and as you say, bit by bit we can all make a difference in protecting this world and making it a kinder place. xx


  8. As humans we must learn to take care of our environment..earth..nature, etc. …
