The World We Have, is a wonderful book on a Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology

Love Letter to the Earthis a hopeful book that gives us a path to follow by showing that change is possible only with the recognition that people and the planet are ultimately one and the same.

  1. I wonder if you would be willing to contribute a short review of The World We Have that I could post on my blog about nature and spirituality? (credited to you of course) I have been wanting to read this book and post a review, but I think it would be best to have someone with a stronger background in Buddhist teachings write it. Would you be willing? BTW I love your blog.

  2. Sound the alarm- the planet is too warm

    I’ve been reading books and stuff
    and its clear to see enough is enough
    but the the sea is not clear
    its polluted too, my dear
    A huge mass of plastic, a Blob
    and in the air, we have smog.
    And on the ground all around
    In rivers and streams, OMG
    And now there’s freaking fracking
    And the odds against us are stacking
    We’re being less- than- skillful stewards of the Earth
    From the North Pole to Perth
    The temperature is rising and so is the sea
    There are floods and droughts
    And there is no doubt
    We’re making a mess and it really stinks
    We better do something before we’re extinct
