Purpose of The Caring Heart

April 2013

Purpose:  To inspire people to seek and work towards more wholesome living conditions for all, now and in the future.

Whoever you are, wherever you are, continue to GROW and EXPAND your caring heart. We all can and should do things to make differences of real benefit to ourselves and to our needy world.
 
THE EARTH

Keep trash and pollution to a minimum. Use items until they are really worn out, and buy only what you really need. Recycle. Lower your use of fossil fuels.  Learn to have lots of fun closer to home, combine trips, etc.

ANIMAL WELFARE

Be informed and vote in favor of animal-friendly legislation.  Financially support animal sanctuary and rescue groups.  Cease buying factory-farmed meat, fish, and eggs.  Don’t purchase articles made from animal parts, such as furs, or those involving animal research.  Make sure your own pets have a healthy and happy environment.  Spay and neuter.  Report neglect and abuse.

ONE ANOTHER

Increase interest in and interaction with others. Practice more sensitivity, thoughtfulness, warmth, and kindness. Be affirming and complimentary, truly respectful, and positively responsive. Smile a lot!

OURSELVES

Care enough about yourself to keep improving really healthy nutrition – eliminate junk and refined, processed foods, buy as much fresh, organic food as possible, take supplements and do whatever else it takes to support a well-nourished, pollution-free, disease-free body. Get regular, appropriate exercise.

SUGGESTED GUIDELINES

Go for it! It matters! It works! Encourage others!
Gentle strokes for precious plants, animals, and folks!
