My logo (on this page) explains it clearly. I have used this logo for 18 years. A friend of mine helped me design it. A lot of people use the Yin/Yang symbol, but you will notice on my logo there are plants and flowers coming out of the the Yin/Yang symbol, all around it. This isn’t just because it’s “pretty.” The Yin/Yang symbol, simply put, means balance. Not too much of anything - not too little of anything. Perfect balance. And when there is perfect balance, life grows and flourishes. The plants and flowers in my logo are growing out of perfect balance.
I was driving by a construction site a few years ago (not the first or last as I am sure you all know.) and I noticed, at the edge of the site, stacks of naked trees. Their branches and leaves were all stripped off and they were lying there exposed to the world. It was one of the saddest sights to me. It reminded me of the horrific pictures of the Nazi Holocaust (no disrespect intended).
A disregard for life. Living beings are of no consequence to the goal. My soul aches for the holiness of this world.
When there is balance, life flourishes. That doesn’t mean that no trees will be cut down to build things, it means there is more respect for the land. I have witnessed the destruction of all the woods along Route 3 South in Crofton, Maryland to create massive shopping centers. There are actually four large supermarkets in less than one mile. This is disrespectful to the land and the beings who live there. There are confused deer dying on the road all along this area. How many grocery stores do people need? This is imbalance.
I believe very strongly that the destruction of our planet comes from imbalanced people. So, when you think about me and what I do, think about my love for the planet. I am treating the planet by treating one person at a time. Healthy people create a healthy world.
