Green Action group created and up and running :-)
Hi all,

I posted a week and a bit ago about a Green Action group that was being formed in Melbourne.

Well, we had our inaugural meeting last weekend in the Botanic Gardens and it was a success. We had a reasonable number of people turn up, and topics covered many areas of sustainable living.

As an ongoing means of communication, we've decided to form an LJ community. The group is now called greenripples and the community is up and running. Post will include information about:

  • all aspects of sustainability,
  • eco-topics of relevance specifically to Melbourne (a bonus whe so much of the environmental movement is based elsewhere in the world!),
  • how to live more more sustainably,
  • basic green skills coverering everything from choosing a more environmentally friendly laundry detergent to making your own shampoo and growing veggies,
  • details on upcoming meetings (approximately every three weeks, totally optional and usually on weekends)
  • how to reduce your eco-footprint
  • how to raise environmentally aware kids
  • how not to piss off less-sustainable friends and family (!!)
  • details on environmentally-based tours, outings and protests


If this sounds like the sort of group you'd be interested in, please consider joining.

In case you're wondering why we're called greenripples? It's because we, as a group, feel that sustainability starts with the individual and echoes outwards, like ripples in a pond. It's when you share information that you make it powerful, and sharing information in a positive way is what we're all about.

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment
The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.


Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment

Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.


Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.


When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

Emotion ends.

Man becomes machine.



A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.



FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.

SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.
