Aspire to Inspire

A new direction

I’ve shifted direction a few times in my life. From an adolescent to adult I’ve moved across states, upgrading responsibilities along the way. I was “paying my dues” by performing properly, the expectations of society. After Pineville high school was DeVry technical institute then I went to work for “the man”, until years later starting a business and becoming “the man”.

As we move forward into the ascension into Aquarius, or the Bronze age of the Yuga cycle, I stop to reflect more often. I see that the behavior of the world is changing, drastically. There have always been people disagreeing or fighting with the establishment, but now there is constant rioting as people wake up and no longer want to be treated as slaves.

We seem to have been caught up in this deviation for a few hundred years. A detour of our original purpose. Who knows!? This could have been the point all along!

I’ve got this idea that this, 3rd dimension, physical realm, is like a play area or “toy room”, you might equate it to an elaborate “Lego land”. Where we created the toys or Legos and we decided to bring the bodies to life and take the form so that we can be here to explore it as the “little” people. We all get to play out the different scenarios. “I want to be little Susy in the pink dress”. “I want to be a cowboy that learns how to rope and ride”. “I want to be a cop that arrests the bad guy”. “I want to be the bully” “I want to have all the money” And so we go do that.

My new direction has been to collect perspectives. It seems that I feel at ease and more calm these days as I fill my experience with other people’s perspectives. I can keep them at arms reach because I’m not directly connected to those people or perspectives. I see something or someone and consider myself a bystander just observing them, their words or actions and I don’t feel I have to become involved because they have their right to their own perspective. After you see so many across the world and understand that people are raised differently and that not everyone puts their pants on the same way, mainly because some don’t wear them regardless of gender, then you are more gentle. Well I hope. The idea is that you want to be allowed to have your view or perspective and not be persecuted or ridiculed, judged or otherwise insulted because someone else is more valuable, higher up, has more money, is louder or more violent, etc. But because you’re here too and no one is higher than another.

I’ve decided to retire early. I’ve had more time on my hands for a couple of months and I’m still learning to handle that. I’m reading and researching more about my interests, about life, and the pursuit of my own happiness and that of my family. By not being apart of the programming out there I can see it relatively clearly. The riots against the establishment, the outrageous debt to the world banks, the wars and countless deaths over oil and, well, it’s all about capitalism, the corruption of governments and religions addicted to control, the race to write the history books and strategy to keep the people ignorant as the steam roller rolls on.

I find solace in solitude, beauty in the silence, and understanding inside. I read about the sages, gurus, and yogis. I’ve stopped arguing about religions and books and who’s “God” did and said what. At this point, going without all that is just fine with me. I’d rather go within and strap a backpack on and walk away never to be seen or heard from again. I’m an all or nothing kind of guy. I’m either all in with time and money and dedication to change the outside world or I’m all INside, distancing myself from the outside world and investing in the wisdom and love within my own vortex and vicinity.

We’ve looked into joining groups and organizations for education, rebuilding homes or infrastructure. There are so many things out there to do. For now, I’m moving forward for me and my family; not for money, or other’s thoughts or rules. We’re currently happy daily, the rest, we’ll just deal with as it comes.

I am a Student of Life currently living in India with my wife and son. I am interested in philosophy, discussions of life and how to make it better as we learn, individually, how to lead ourselves. We're waking up, and our mindset is changing. We need to increase our perspectives in order to become more tolerant and eventually more loving toward all life. The skeptics that would bawk at ideas of communities of people living in peace, choosing to "work" for themselves as a means for a "living" instead of profit and consumerism, simply means they aren't at the same level of understanding and aren't surrounded by an environment or others that would support those ideals. My proposal is for more people to leave their comfortable lives and conveniences and increase their time in nature. Reconnect with that which we are. My goal is in "being" not in "having"
