Wherever we go – the flowers will grow
Two souls – two goals. One Planet

It’s not my garbage, but it’s my Planet
“Google” for this phrase on internet to see how many people care about our Nature, and our environment. Sadly, while lots of people are already conscious, others remain in “drunk” condition, escaping reality and thinking that someone else need to clean after them. Working in a farm, we all know after whom it is important to clean, right?…
Up to now, I am cleaning the Planet for more than 5 years, and literally it cleans my mind and body. For all those who carry about staying healthy and in-shape – start practice Nature cleaning to see how powerful is absolute devotion to Nature. It does not matter whether I am on vacations or at home, whether I am on a beach, or close to a river, or on a forest path. It is clean wherever I am going, my path is clean and healthy breathing.
For many of us, it is already a rule and good habit to collect trashes after our own picnic, etc., and dispose it properly. But when a family member suddenly picks up not his trash on a way – other family members could overcome some discomfort and slight shock: “What are you doing??” Many of us, we still have that mentality that “I am responsible for myself only”. But…what if YOU are that ALL? What if YOU are all this Planet?
That is absolutely possible, but still not many of us are ready to accept that truth. But some of us do. Once in a regional train, a lady shouted on a group of young boys and girls who were rowdy and were littering right there on sits and carriage passage. She was shouted loudly requiring them to clean a space until that young band has lastly collect their garbage. I said to her “Thanks” after. I have not such a loudly forceful voice, but have a WORD, so I am writing here.
The traces that you leave on a life road are talking about you, even after years and miles away.

Ocean of fear is already jam-packed with plastics and disposable drinking cups. Plastic gloves and single-use face masks (made of plastic!) are next in a row (or already there?).
“Single-use face masks are washing up on Hong Kong beaches, threatening marine life and raising questions about hygienic disposal of the masks” – Ocean advocate raises alarm as masks wash up on beaches by Cindy E. Harnett / Times Colonist, April 14, 2020
“Nobody wants to go to the forest and find masks littered everywhere or used masks on the beaches. It is unhygienic and dangerous” – Discarded coronavirus masks clutter Hong Kong’s beaches, trails by Reuters, March 12, 2020
No need to pretend that beaches are far away from you, because one could see how disposable gloves, especially disposable plastic gloves fill up the space around. Within the last week, the sky, the air in my city (not Ocean side) is filling up with disposable plastic gloves. Some people even catch them by accident on their faces or bodies while walking on the streets. In terms of COVID-19 that is not hygienic and could be dangerous, right? The air revenges and wind blows and carries the plastic back to humans in days, not in years.
Human’s fear is in the Ocean right now, human’s fear is in the Soil right now, human’s fear is in the Air, and its face (in the XXI century) is plastic.

Unexpected, but most important aspects that feed inner physical and mental Fear, according to the scientific literature, spiritual training and my personal experimental practice, are:
How healthy and strong we could be, if with the same passion (as now) would take personal prophylactic measures against cancer, heart diseases, diabetes…
How healthy and strong we could be, if with the same passion (as now) would take personal prophylactic measures against cancer, heart diseases, diabetes…Just could you imagine prophylactic measures against cancer, taken massively by all the humankind in every country? Just could you imagine prophylactic measures against diabetes, taken massively by all the humankind in every country? We would be great, the greatest humans who ever lived on this Planet!
Ocean of LOVE is…is healthy. Human’s health, mental and physical well-being, would bring the things into the right places. There will be a time when Human will act in a harmony with Nature, steering the rivers of wellness into the Oceans of Love.
Unexpected, but most important aspects for overcoming inner physical and mental Fears, according to scientific literature, spiritual training and my personal experimental practice, are:
The topic of overcoming inner physical and mental fears is to be continued.

Being a servant of Mother Nature, but not of other human beings.
Before all this COVID started officially in our country, I was in Nature. I was in Nature to rest there and feel the joy of being its part. And got absolute satisfaction for all long day after. So, what did I do there? The same what is already usual for me, the same – I was collecting the garbage from Nature’s folds.
It was quite cold there, and my fingers, gathering tiny shreds of plastic from water were swollen and painful. It was not of worries for me, I was seeking my goal.
Some plastics, garbage were newly left in Nature, but lots of it were there for years and already started to integrate into the soil or dissolving microparticles in natural water pools – a small lake.
One could say: “That’s great! You see, plastic is decomposing!” But, we should understand that decomposition of plastic elements to soil or water is a toxic process.
Decomposition of plastic elements to soil or water is a toxic process. More so, it decomposes firstly to smaller particles and birds or animals can mistake it for food. Link for more information: https://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/microplastics.html
Would you like to drink water (or to give to your child) if knowing that there are chemical pollutants in it? Of course not. Why do we think the birds, animals and fishes are ready to swallow it?
While collecting garbage from Nature, you naturally are doing reverences, hundreds of times, because you are cleaning the soil and water around.
Reverence is the way of radical respect. By showing our respect to Nature directly, with reverence, we become a part of it and live in harmony with ourselves and the world around.
From the spiritual point of view, Reverence is the way of radical respect. It recognizes and honors the presence of the sacred in everything — our bodies, other people, animals, plants, rocks, the earth, and the waters (by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat at https://www.spiritualityandpractice.com/practices/alphabet/view/28/reverence).
Reverence is also a powerful physical exercise, connecting lower and upper body parts by enhanced lungs’ ventilation and blood flow.
Guys, I would say with a smile, but the best sport in Nature is collecting garbage! Physical and mental satisfaction are guaranteed!
First time I started to collect OUR (humans’) garbage from Nature in 2014, I guess. In my living region this kind if activity was not well-known, and by myself, I only read on internet that it is possible, but never saw anyone doing that. In people eyes, who were passing by with their dogs, was a confusion – “What does that homeless do?” Is she homeless?… That time I dragged away to the nearest container around 7-10 kg of garbage in each hand. I was so exited! And so well-feeling physically, as after super sports.
Some friends are telling me that it is not my work to do so, there are special services and organisations who deal with clean-ups. Yep, if majority of us are still thinking this way, next generation – we, being elderly, and our children – would probably consume plastics directly as those whales year ago… Link to the info: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/2019/03/whale-dies-88-pounds-plastic-philippines/
Tips for responsible humans:
Even if there is a garbage bin close to your picnic place in Nature – don’t put the garbage there. Take it with you to the city and through away there, because:
Tips for responsible humans after COVID-19:
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle
