But, what if you knew that living green was not about meeting an obligation alone, to reduce the waste that is produced by your habits of consumption, but, rather, a beautiful and inspiring way of life that could feed and nourish your relationship with your self, others, and all living things? In the book Born to Live Green-Awakening Me Hearts Wisdom to the Path of Eco-Intelligent Living, Candia Lea Cole takes us with her on a sacred journey into the heart and soul of green living.This journey begins on the day of her graduation from high-school, when, after missing her graduation ceremony due to longstanding health challenges, she is awakened to the necessity of carving out her own educational path in life. This path, we learn, has an ecological basis, and serves to link the healing of her whole being, with the healing of our ailing earth, through the awakening of her innate eco-intelligence, an intelligence that she says, guides all of us to live in balance and harmony with life. Along the path of Candias awakening, we meet some of the fascinating people, events, and self-healing experiences that served to shape to her holistic lifestyle philosophy. The later emergence in her being of an eco-visionary is the real gift that comes out of Candias her eco-education journey, for it illustrates (through the metaphor of birth) how she created the Bring Back the Earth Eco-Learning Legacy. This legacy, which features a six-step path to eco-intelligent living, is designed to prepare young and mature adults to become the leaders of a new and sustainable earth. This book is a must-read formothers and daughters, as well as the everyday mentor and citizen who feels called to bring back the earths lost wisdom for living well during a time in our earths history, that seeks a more enlightened and thriving green approach to life.
