What is prosperity?
Prosperity is health, happiness and abundance.
Live a sustainable life and prosperity is yours. The three elements of prosperity is health, happiness and abundance. I describe these further as follows:
A subjective state of mind that comes from manifesting your full potential.
Self explanatory, but encompasses mind and body.
Your cup overflows with everything from money, friends, opportunities, energy, children, food, water.
Happiness, health and abundance are states, side effects of sustainability. Think of a bee hive: happy bees, healthy bees and an abundance of honey.
Unsustainable activity reverses all three elements of prosperity: where despair replaces happiness; sickness replaces health, both in mind and body; empty hunger replaces abundance. Where once was prosperity is the full horror of the wasteland as all energy systems collapse; nothing grows, nothing lives.
Miners used to go down the coal pits with a canary in a cage, and if the canary died they got out fast, for toxic gases where present. The bee is such a canary. What happens to bees will happen to everything and everyone. The bees are the prophets of prosperity or wasteland. If the bees die so will humanity.
The choice is for everyone to make. Live a sustainable life and enjoy prosperity; live an unsustainable life and face the wasteland.
