This week Adele asks us to turn our attention to our manners as citizens and borrowers of this world. We are pausing to remember all the humans that loved us into existence and then passed on to give us this home. Which, in turn, sets us up to consider the next era where we will, of course, do the same for the generations that come after us. How are we using what we need and not "stealing" resources that the generations after us will also need? We are taking the airplane view this week of our time on earth and taking a look at how nonstealing can guide us to give back as much as we get to leave a world where our children's children can remember us kindly for securing resources so they also can be comfortable when it's their turn to visit this lovely planet.
"Week Two: This week notice where you are stealing from the earth and stealing from the future. Where are you taking without returning something of at least equal value? This week, live in reciprocity with the earth and awareness of the future. "
