Welcome

For Love of the Earth is a resource hub with our beautiful planet at its heart. So many sites focus on our health, our finances, our convenience. In contrast, while the solutions laid out here will often benefit you, the central concern is adjusting our lifestyles for her sake. The Earth is a living being who needs to be treated with love and respect, not as a pious intention here and there, but as a way of life.
Sometimes this requires effort, sacrifice or changing comfortable habits. Indeed the full picture is a potentially vast lifestyle change. Please realize this is not an all-or-nothing, overnight deal. You may be living somewhere limiting, or putting all your energy into bringing up a young family, or juggling two jobs, or unwell, and so on. You can only do what you can do, and if you’re sincerely doing it for love of the Earth, that love will reach.

(Note: the site is currently undergoing some reorganizing!)

“The earth, who gives us life and sustains us with her endless generosity needs our care and attention, and especially our love. Love comes from the silence and speaks to us of the divine that is within all life, and the oneness that binds us together in the great web of life. We need rest and return to love, and allow love to work its magic, within our hearts and the heart of the world.”

—Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

“There is this enormous living power which is the world in every moment and we’ve stepped out of that. So it’s not really a question of re-imaging how we could live differently because we don’t need to, we just need to step back into the circle of life. And I think that Spiritual Ecology is to go into the connectedness, and allow action to arise from there.”
