When you look at our existence within a greater perspective, you grasp that we are quite small. The earth is nothing but a speck of dust within an infinitely expanding space. In the grand scheme of existence, each of us humans on this speck of dust are no more important than the ants crawling on the sidewalk or the bees buzzing by.
This is a summary of my actions that have a negative impact on the earth, people, and critters. This list is not all encompassing and I’m certain that I am not aware of some of the burdens I outsource. I am certain that I screw up more than this list can explain. I don’t shame myself, though, because I have come a long way and will continue to work on these issues.
To create the world you wish to be a part of you must start from within. Leading by example is a very simple and effective means to influence your peers and community. Here are some simple ways to gain happiness and health for yourself while living a life that is beneficial to the earth and your community as well.
Day 2 of Change the World is Take Back the Human Body Day!
I believe that humans would be happier, healthier, and better to the earth if we were more comfortable in our own skin. It would mean fewer beauty products, less clothing and accessories, and less time in front of the mirror. That would leave more money and time for what’s important. Also, today is about treating our bodies with health and respect.

Right now, I live off the grid in a very tiny house. I’ve taken earth-friendly living much further than I’d ever imagined and to many, my way of life is extreme. Of course, I know we’re not all going to live off the grid in tiny houses and most of us aren’t going to drastically change our lives overnight. But not that long ago, when I started to live a more earth-friendly life, I had a typical apartment and lived a pretty typical life. My transformation started with small changes to the way I was used to doing things, and just kept growing from there.
This is my house guide to sustainable, simple, and healthy living. These were all the building blocks that took me from Drunk Dude to Dude Making a Difference. All of these practices are good for the Earth, your community, and yourself and create health and happiness for all humans and creatures. I recommend making a list of all the things you want to start doing from this guide and hanging it on a prominent place on your wall. Start with the easier things that you can enjoy doing and then move to the more challenging ones. With each little success, you’ll feel more empowered to tackle the next challenge, and it will become more enjoyable and more exciting as you go! It’s all about taking it one day and one step at a time to get to where you want to be.
To most human beings, an individual ant means absolutely nothing. It is a minuscule insect among billions that appear exactly the same to the untrained eye.
Fellow humans, when you look at our existence within a greater perspective you will start to grasp that we are nothing more than the ants we perceive as insignificant. The earth is nothing but a speck of dust within an infinitely expanding space. In the grand scheme of existence each of us humans on this speck of dust are no more important than the bugs stuck to our windshields.
I’m a good man. I’m good to my fellow humans. I’m good to all animals and creatures. I’m good to the earth. I’m good to myself. I’m good for the sake of being good. Not for any religion. Not for any government. Not for any group or club. I’m good because I want to spread happiness and health on this earth.
Live Happy. Live Healthy. Live Free. Live beyond yourself.
Beware! People will think you are awesome. You will be flooded with compliments, love, and appreciation. People will want to talk to you and be around you. Your life will have purpose and you will be passionate to be alive. You will be radiating smiles and health like never before. Please do not read on if that sounds like a bad idea to you.
We live in an interesting time, an exciting time. We live in an era where we just may witness the survival or the extinction of the human race. We are destroying the natural world much faster than it can heal itself. We are aware of our destruction, but most humans are just too lazy to do what needs to be done. Most of us are too lazy to think past our own little lives. Billions of humans deny or completely avoid the fact that they are destroying the environment. Maybe that’s a way of self protection, a way to feel okay about their lives. Maybe it’s feeling helpless and hopeless, like their actions don’t count.
Start living beyond yourself. Start living a life of health and happiness for the earth, your community, humankind, and you.
United States of Ameica, there was a time when it could be all about us. There was a time when we didn’t have to worry about what was going on in the other countries around the world. That time is over. That time is long gone. The reason? We have created so many problems around the world in so many countries that we have a responsibility to fix those problems.
