How can Mother Earth support ten billion people, all living better and more fulfilled than they do today? Our present systems must change. Our leaders are no longer serving us. Improvement is possible by making a few changes in how and what we teach each new child. In time the culture of the World can be changed for the better. Here are the basic needs and goals to be accepted and implemented.
- Teach Frugality as a way of life. Less can be More, and totally fulfilling.
- Security, freedom, and more choices for all. Eliminating wars and violence, and reduced use of fossil fuels will set us free.
- Clean Air and Water and healthy Food. The latter is produced with minimum labor, and distributed efficiently to all people.
- Each new child will enjoy health, love, and monetary security as a minimum.
- Most will choose to live moral and productive lives which are self rewarding.
- Machines and Robots will do most of the material and food production.
- THE BIG QUESTION: How do people keep busy with MEANINGFUL activities? .. I shall tell you.
LIFELONG LEARNING AND CRITICAL THINKING
No classrooms required in the computer age
Engage in Service to each other and to our planet
Reflect upon the true purpose of your life.
Be Happy; Do not Worry.
Escape from affluenza, [materialism].
Your “Stuff” becomes a burden.
Let it go.
At age 92 years, I have personally lived through and experienced the complete spectrum of the HUMAN CONDITION, its successes and failures. Mostly the latter. I present a Testimonial of One in my belief that everyone can be taught to learn, grow, and prosper in good health as I have. Usually we teach ourselves.
Bloom where planted with the hand you are dealt.
Whether you were born rich or poor, black or white, healthy or sickly, everyone must do what they are able.
That is what life is all about.
Each day is a gift.
Count your blessings and go forward.
My story starts in 1928 when Herbert Hoover was President and the Great Depression was about to beset us all. All families struggled with near poverty, but my family always had enough healthy food to avoid sickness and depression. I was a good kid who dutifully suffered through school, but managed a B average with hard work and doing the assignments. I had a paper route at age 14 and always saved my earnings due to my Frugality. I was the first family member to go to College. That opened the door to a 35 year career, and supporting a wife and 4 children. By age 35, I was not fulfilled even with many material and professional successes. Is that all there is to life? Something must be missing, yet I knew not what. Things started to happen and In the next 30 years I went from naive and immature to a deeper thinker and practiced observer, eventually to arrive completely reformed. From age 37 to age 68 i experienced 32 epiphanies [lots of personal growth]. .. So, what did I learn of such great value to the human family?
I shall try to describe a Balanced and Stress Free life of Joy and Contentment available to each and everyone who seeks it. .. You can start at any age, but an early start is best .. Fortunate is the child raised with love, security, and good health. That is essentially the solution, because happy, healthy children grow up to be good citizens of integrity and responsibility. Those less fortunate can still break through to “The Good Life”.
My own life may serve as one example to inspire others. .. At age 92, I have been liberated from “Working” for 34 years now, yet I remain fully engaged and usually arise early each morning with gusto, and with exciting plans for the day. I have many interests and a balanced life with no real pressures nor issues. Each day seems filled with nice surprises and trivial adventures that bring as much joy as when doing big things in my prime years. How wonderful that is. It is effortless. It is filled with joy. It is just “Living”. It is the way people may have lived in the distant past, before the pressures of the industrial age. Would you also like to experience decades of real joy and stress free living? Then, start now on the pathway and it shall be yours.
Read and study “Handbook to Higher Consciousness”
by Ken Keyes Jr.
You must find your own pathway. You know it is there. Step by step you will grow and be rewarded. .. What is the purpose of your life? .. Hopefully, it is to live a moral and respectful life of love and empathy, while serving each other to the best of your ability. Most Importantly, engage actively to protect our Earth from damage and pollution. .. Just think how content the Human Family can be upon this achievement. .. There can be no higher purpose for your life and for mine.
I say it can be done, so
You figure out how to start
And then stay focused.
Our beautiful Earth can sustain a quality life for ten Billion humans and all living plants and animals, but only if we act soon enough to stop our destructive ways. Any delay can be catastrophic.
