Beauty, Humor and Insight

This post has a little bit of many things.

1. First of all,  a great marketing effort by follow the frog label. Very funny and makes the point, with insight and criticism of some eco-gringo aspirations. My only issue with it is the solution: “Just follow the frog”. Really, is that all we can do? I think it is a good thing (perhaps, probably?), but if consumerism leads to the problem, is consuming better really the solution? What would Einstein say: “We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”

 2. Next, a work of art on the beauty of nature, enjoy.

3. This other insight from John Francis from Ted Talks, who walked the earth in silence for over 2 decades:

“I started talking because I had studied environment. I’d studied environment at this formal level, but there was this informal level. And the informal level — I learned about people, and what we do and how we are. And environment changed from just being about trees and birds and endangered species to being about how we treated each other.Because if we are the environment, then all we need to do is look around us and see how we treat ourselves and how we treat each other.” 

This insight learned from the wisdom of reality, of being in touch with the world, is fully in line with the message of human ecology of Pope Francis and the Church.
