As I was typing the ecological depression post, I thought also that there might be some inner voice at play. I’ve since uncovered it: He is screaming at me “You’re not doing enough! You’re such a hypocrite!” Ah, yes. I don’t have to believe everything I think.
As Donald Rothberg teaches, though, there is some discernment in this judgment and that might be where I am getting stuck: I want to do more, reduce my footprint further, contribute to averting (or at least lessening) the crises I see ourselves in. And I don’t know what. That is where Cvetkovich’s idea that there are solutions can come in: If I move beyond the voice’s demand that I come up with The Solution, I can act on what I have been trying to do for years now. Even little things matter because if all of us would make those little changes, big things can happen. Time to dance!
