Guideline Number Four: Remember who you really are.

Remember that you are borne by and carried and supported and informed and acted through that which you are protecting, the living earth.  The notion that you are a separate self working to save the world, no matter how noble or heroic or saintly it may be, will ultimately burn you out.  Allow that shift in your identity that opens you to the feeling of being acted through.  As John Seed said, “I am not John Seed protecting the rainforest so much as the rainforest, recently emerged into human thinking, protecting itself.”  When you break through to that kind of awareness you can go on tirelessly.
