Fundraising Campaign

Creative Sacred Living  aims to re-connect people through spirituality and ecological awareness to the sacred essence inherent both in our own selves and in Nature.

Recognition of our spiritual connection to nature is vital to the well-being of ourselves and the planet. Knowing and honoring the sacredness of Earth and the life she supports helps us acknowledge our own place within the living ecosystems of the planet. When we do this we can experience a deep sense of belonging that comes from embracing the interdependence of all life.

We see caring for and respect for our Mother Earth, who provides life and nourishment, as Sacred. Through creative thinking, and sacred living we aim to live deeper and more meaningful lives for ourselves and all living beings.

What began in 2014 as a small online magazine is now in it's evolutionary process. Creative Sacred Living is nurturing its growth into a nonprofit organization and community. 

Our goals:

✾ To obtain 501(c)3 status.
✾To continue to build our University, empowering others through education of our inherent connection with all things.
✾To build Global Community as a platform for all to connect, and bring forth their own gifts to the earth.
✾ To continue raising awareness to important environmental issues while also inspiring others through creative media.
✾ To partner with others who share our visions as earth keepers.

We celebrate each individual's creative path, and spiritual journey through love and an understanding of our unique connection and place in the cosmos.

Eco Living and the Path of Sacred Ecology

Guest post by Paramahansa Jagadish
Any dialogue on Eco Living must surely include not only the eco-systems of the world around us, but also the inner ecology's of us as human beings. This article will inform the reader on how he or she can live a greener lifestyle, but also seeks to inspire everyone, to become good stewards of ourselves and the planet.

This involves taking a look at the material world and the ways that we might co-exist in harmony within our fragile environments (Eco-Living). It also means that we must examine the correlation of mind, body and soul as well and the ecology of the individual self in relationship to the mind, body, soul AND the mind, body, soul connection to our immediate environments. To do this, we need not subscribe to any one particular religious affiliation or faith, nor do we seek to impose any particular spiritual belief system upon the reader as it is not necessary for the goals that we seek to accomplish. This aspect of discovering our True nature in order to affect a positive change in ourselves and the world around us, is available to any person and its only requirement is an open mind and a willingness to affect change. So, finding and experiencing permanent solution to the most pressing problems in the world today, is really just a matter of becoming aware that we CAN do so. A by-product of this awareness is peace, joy, environmental balance a deeper connection to ourselves, each other and the beautiful world in which we live.

Regardless of how we get there individually, or collectively, it has become painfully clear that science and technology can only take us so far and that a transformation of our inner ecologies on a spiritual level is paramount to the evolution and continuation of us as a species. On a higher level, this God/Self Realization is paramount to the evolution of the soul and can enable one to find true liberation from suffering. But so as not to lose some of our readers who cannot or will not open themselves to the notion Sacred Ecology, let's get back the fundamentals of environmental ecology and what we can do as individuals on a day to day basis.

It is our responsibility as the stewards of this planet to live as Eco-Conscious as we can. Developing a lifestyle of Eco-Living is where we as individuals, then collectively as nations can actually turn the tide in our favor giving rise to immediate and dramatic positive effects on the environment... and after all, the survival of our planet depends on it!

Here are some tips and tools to help you on your path to Eco-Living.

Shop green: Now that we have an idea of where we're going wrong, let's get into how we can start to make a concrete difference in the world. And what better place to start than our buying habits. After all, how you spend your money greatly affects how companies and manufacturers conduct themselves. As demand for earth-friendly, efficient products and services increases, so will supply. Your dollars often speak louder than words.

Conserve by Consuming Less: One of the best ways to reduce your impact on the earth is to reduce how much your purchase in the first place, when what you have right now is still functional..

As stated in Part 3, every product on every shelf out there requires the infusion of at least some natural resources like wood, cotton, plastic (a petroleum product), water, or chemicals. Choosing to forego new clothes, new furniture, or new toys for your kids is one way to reduce your spending (saving you money), while cutting back on the amount of resources you take from the earth. Buying less means fewer resources extracted. The Buy Nothing Day campaign encourages this kind of activism.

Abstaining from shopping isn't the only way to reduce your overall consumption. Here are a few more ideas to cut how much your purchase on a regular basis:

Take your own bags: Worldwide plastic bag consumption is about 1 trillion every year, which equals 2 million bags per minute or 330 bags per person annually. Paper bags are also eco-unfriendly since making them produces 70 percent more air pollution and 50 percent more water pollution than plastic.To avoid this mess, take your own bags with you when you go to the grocery store, shopping mall, farmer's market, or wherever your shopping trip takes you. Store them in your car's trunk, put one or two in your purse or briefcase, and make it a new habit.

Repair and upgrade: Electronics: Computers, monitors, mice, keyboards, speakers, printers, telephones-these electronics are made with (often unrecyclable) plastics, heavy metals (lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, and more, which make them toxic to create and even more so to dispose of. So instead of getting new machines every year, try to buy good quality up-front so that it will last you a good long time. And then upgrade and/or repair it whenever possible instead of replacing it.

Appliances: Air conditioners, furnaces, refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, microwaves, dishwashers, and hot water heaters all require replacement at some point, but before chucking what you have, see about repairing and/or upgrading it first. A simple cleaning or tune-up may make it much more efficient, saving you loads of money on energy and water bills and keeping resources from being sent to the trash.

Clothing and furniture: Whether your jeans have a hole or your chair a wobbly leg, it's usually more cost-effective and less resource-intensive to repair than to replace. Take your worn clothes to a seamstress, of if you're handy with a sewing machine do the repairs yourself. Likewise with furniture-a little dab of glue, a nail, or a screw, and you've got a functional piece that should last you a long time. Professional carpenters may also be able to assist you with more complex repairs.

Reusable Goods: While reusing, repairing, and upgrading various products in your home is a great way to reduce how much you buy, so is the habit of choosing reusable over disposable products. 

Whenever you buy paper plates, plastic cups, one-use mops or sponges, TV-dinners, paper napkins and paper towel, plastic cutlery, and more you support a system based on waste. These companies want you to buy more and more of their products indefinitely, feeding your desire for convenience. But these products will not only cost you more than reusable options, they add mounds and mounds of waste to landfills and require the extraction of more and more natural resources like crude oil, trees, and chemicals.

In just one year, for instance, Americans use enough disposable cloths and pads (Swiffer dry cloths and wet pads, Clorox, Lysol, Pledge, and Windex wipes, Grab-it cloths, Mr. Clean MagicReach to name a few) to fill a caravan of 18-wheeler semi-trucks 68 miles long. Instead, look for reusables whenever possible. 

These are simple everyday lifestyle choices,that make a huge difference in our various eco systems. It is a noble and worthy effort that we must engage in, in order to sustain the fragile ecosystems upon which we depend.

Inner Healing for Outer Wholeness and the Path of Sacred Ecology - War, hatred, fear... all of these negative attitudes, emotions, and actions are a manifestation of an unhealthy collective unconscious. Because we're so intimately interconnected with one another, when a person or an animal is hurting, we all feel it in one way or another.

Obvious examples of this interconnectedness between one another can be seen in simple acts of love, altruism, heroism, etc. Research has shown that emotions not only create coherence or incoherence in our bodies, but, like radio waves, also radiate outward and are detected by the nervous systems of others in our environment.

There also exists a tangible interconnectedness between ourselves and our planet and the scientific community is only now beginning to understand and define technically, this connection between individuals, living systems and the earth. There is evidence in some cases that people's brainwaves can synchronize with the rhythm of the electromagnetic waves generated in the earth's ionosphere. 

When a person says they "feel" an impending earthquake or other planetary event, it's possible that what they may be reacting to, are actual physical signals. It is now clear that our nervous systems detect these electromagnetic waves generated by others in our environment, but there is also evidence of a global effect when large numbers of people create similar outgoing waves. 

A well-known example of this, is work done by for the Global Consciousness Project by Roger Nelson and a team of researchers at Princeton University. They used a worldwide network of random number generators. Their data provides evidence that human consciousness and emotionality create or interact with a global field, affecting the randomness of these electronic devices. 

This outward demonstration of our inner connectedness is exciting news with far-reaching implications and gives us tangible reason for a new shift in consciousness. Just think what the possibilities might be if we were of all contributing to this planetary field in a positive and loving manner!

Globalization is turning strangers from across the globe into closely-connected neighbors. Sacred Ecology reminds us that were never separated to begin with. When we, as individuals, communities, or even nations, experience suffering in isolation, we are often left without hope and rely on limited, egocentric solutions. 

We have lost sight of what truly causes suffering, and fail to recognize the roles we play through selfish actions, as well as inactivity-thus creating a cyclic pattern of constant emptiness. At a global level such behavior manifests in the rapid and progressive destruction of the environment.

Sacred Ecology is about holistically cleansing the inner pollution of personal life, so that we can naturally and spontaneously change the outer ecology of the world. This journey begins with shedding the obstacles which keep us from realizing our true selves. Together, we can make a difference. Collectively, through prayer, meditation, healing rituals, and more, we can clear away the negativity within us so that we can naturally manifest a healthier planet. Individually, we must do the work of cleaning up the psychological, mental, and soul levels of our being, where all of our negative karmic memories reside. When we do this, we immediately feel better about ourselves and become more productive, peaceful, healthy people. This lighter, unburdened, more happy feeling and attitude can expresses itself in the world in a happier, healthier manner.

The pursuit of Sacred Ecology empowers us as individuals to bring humanity together to support each other in living more spiritually integrated lives, and in doing so positively influence the environment. The Focus of Sacred Ecology is on that which is sustainable from an eco-spiritual view, becoming fully conscious of the intimate connections and intricate dependencies existing between living organisms and their environment and acting in ways that do not exploit them.

Paramahsna Jagadish's focus of research and practice is in personal ecology, the ecology of the individual self in relationship to the body, mind, and soul, and the connection to our immediate environments. Jagadish is interested in our personal ecology's as small parts of the larger global ecology and is specifically and deeply committed to alternative methods of healing the body, mind, and soul. He works diligently to help people evolve to levels of joy, wisdom and personal maturity which cleanses the inner ecology of the individual.
