Creating a Passionate World!
Just like anyone else, I have things that I am passionate about. These are things that I pursue regularly and truly wish I had more time to be involved with. Like most people, life took over and I have precious little time to do what I love to do.
The more I think about our passions, the more I think that we are not living our lives right. We are not teaching our kids right and therefore, our world is not running right. I know it isn’t that simple and a lot of hard work would be needed to change the world, but I really think that we would all be better off, if we approached life with passion instead of government controlled learning and living.
Once of my passions is 3D Modeling, using a free program called Blender. I only bring this up, because I recently received an email from a Blender Training site, that I am a member of, and it was a story about how the Chief Operating Officer was brought up and where he is today. I found it quite inspiring!
Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.
The above passage, from Proverbs 22:6, really says it all. This is the way God intended us to be brought up, following our passions and encouraging other to do the same. You can learn a lot from reading God’s word in the Holy Scriptures, which is why I wrote the Proverbs Challenge mobile application a while back.
The current problem with living a Passionate Life, lies in the fact that we are all being controlled by Governments, Militaries, Rulers, Principalities and Powers that want to keep all of the power for themselves. They abuse their power by enslaving people and controlling the one thing that makes the world go around. Money!
We are all slaves to money and what it can do for us. That is why God warns us about the love of it:
1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
This is why we are not exploring distant galaxies or the depths of the oceans or the true abilities of all humans. I truly believe that if everyone on the planet was chasing their passions, within moral reason of course, that we would be so far advanced than we are right now.
If we pursued truth and stopped believing the lies that are being told to us everyday, to keep us down, we would soar as our potential rises with each new generation. Everyone learning and perfecting and teaching what they love. Happiness would fill the Earth. Love would fill the Earth. Joy would fill the Earth.
I don’t know about you, but I want that!!
This is by far easier to say than to do, but we need to get rid of money. If your passion requires a resource, then you should have full access to it without cost. If your education is lacking, then you need to have full access to it, without cost. If your family needs food, then you should have access to it without cost.
We need to automate every mundane job that can be automated. This job alone would feed the passions of millions of people. If all mundane jobs are automated, then people are TRULY FREE to chase their passions.
We need to get rid of Big Government. Government should not EVER decide what we should and should not have or do or learn.
We need to get rid of the IRS. We should not have to give up our money, unwillingly, to support agendas we do not agree with. Giving up money all together would accomplish this one.
All Militaries need to release all of the technology that they have developed or learned about and share it freely with the world. I’m not talking about weapons of any kind, but I am talking about technology that would help us advance into the future, sooner rather than later.
If people are happy and have access to anything they need and are doing what they love, then they are less likely to cause trouble or harm. If we are all helping and encouraging one another, then we are cultivating love for our fellow humans, regardless of gender, color or abilities.
We should give freely. Not because our Government says we should, but because we want to advance the Human Race.
How do we know the potential of any human being, if they aren’t given the chance to show the world what they can do. If life is too cost prohibitive because they were born into a poor area of the world, then we are the ones that miss out. We HAVE to move the world forward with everyone given the opportunity to contribute.
In the end, we all will die, so why are we just plodding along doing what we don’t want to do and cultivating hatred toward those who are making us do it?
WE have to change our world, because no one else is going to do it for us. We can’t just sit back and wait for God to make everything right. He will do that, but we can’t and shouldn’t just sit back and let those in power dictate the kind of life we are going to live in the meantime.
The people in power are the exact people that are holding us back. We need to break away from their power and start living the life God gave us.
