Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I completely agree with you about having to change our habits in order to make a real difference. That does not happen easily. I am simply trying to push those that are already close to taking action to actually making a move. I am straddling that line between practical and effective. If you go all in on effective, you get to be in a really lonely place. You look around disgusted with everyone, and you become very isolated. That, for me at least, is not very healthy. This whole universe is about balance, at all levels of life. Again, I am not disagreeing with you, but maybe I have just become more tolerant or less aggressive in my older years. I would like to think though that if the revolution does come, I would be much more inclined towards being effective rather than practical.
