The Wisdom of Living a Principles-Based Life
Here we are, 20 years into the 21st century. A snapshot of current events might leave one to wonder how far we’ll make it into the 22nd. One might even question whether, at this rate, we would even want to. From one perspective, humanity is gripped in waves of fear, confusion, misinformation, pestilence, famine, natural disasters, isolation, and inequalities of every kind.
Thankfully, this era has likewise been filled with mind-blowing innovations, mass waves of heart-opening compassion, broad-band information exchange, dispelling of age-old institutionalized oppressions, scientific breakthroughs, and
an awe-inspiring race to raise global awareness for ecological conservation.
We find ourselves, now, at a tipping point. Global attention has finally turned toward our urgent need to preserve planetary conditions, for a future that is suitable to human life (not to mention the rest of our fellow earthlings.) All credible evidence shows that the only hope we have for handing our children’s children a world worth having children in is to change the way that we, ourselves, live & do business.
In my personal opinion, voting with our dollar is one of the most potent actions that we can take daily. Throughout this paper, we’ll explore why and how, as well as other design principles that one might use to redesign their life in ways that can bring more time, purpose, and impact into their lives.
Plainly speaking, every time we exchange money with any type of organization, we’re essentially showing our support for the contribution they are making to our lives, humanity, and the planet. We are directly encouraging them to keep up with what they’re doing. Any time we exchange our money with an organization that is polluting, enslaving, and producing low-grade products destined for a short life of use and a long life in the landfill, we are personally responsible for that pollution, enslavement, and low standard of human potential. It’s a hard truth that we need to understand and accept if we’re to secure our grandchildren’s future.
Conversely, when we choose to invest the extra time, money, and willingness to support environmentally and socially responsible businesses, we are personally contributing to a future in which our grandchildren might still thrive. The good news is that many of these new choices can save us time, money, and energy once set into place. As well, you are not alone. The work has already begun!
The path to a better world for ourselves, our families, and our planet does not lie in polarizing media posts! The only path out of our global crisis is through action. However, not any action will do. We need action born of wisdom and intentional design.
This book will help you gain refreshing perspective on how to approach your life's design in a way that will directly benefit you and your community, in a holistic way. It's time to wake up and realize that our governments are not going to make these changes for us. It is in our hands! The good news is that by adopting this system of thinking, you'll be empowering yourself to bring greater harmony into all that you do. It's time to understand a better way!
“It's just so full of juicy awesomeness! As soon as I got to the end, I wanted to go back and start again.”
“What a beautiful work! All very true and we will be living in a better world if everyone would apply only half of it.”
