Humans have lots of social problems because we are living a lie. Once we expose the truth and start living it, the symptoms (over-population, wars and killing, damage to the very planet that we live on, economic meltdown) will disappear. The Three R's is the formula for restoring passion and purpose to human life. Ignore it at your peril!
Life Is What You Make It?
Look around. Does everything seem OK to you? Our Earth is an unimaginable paradise. Picture it for a minute, but without any trace of humans. Do you see, as I do, a balanced, perfect, 100% real, authentic, full-of-excitement life? Do you see a life of passion, beauty, adventure, and sometimes horror—all the things that make life interesting in the wild and unpredictable dance of nature?
A squirrel finds a tree and a surrounding area, an environmental niche, and Mother Nature does the rest. Everything the squirrel needs is there: food, shelter, territory, the right climate. That includes the squirrel’s own resources, which were developed in response to the niche that the local environment provides: the perfect balance of body, mind, and emotions to survive, thrive, escape predation, mate, and raise offspring in that particular setting. This is the way Mother Nature designed every living thing, including humans.
Maybe your life is going the way you want it to, or maybe not. I have looked at my life over the years—my choices, skills, talents, temperament, successes, and failures—and the environment in which I live. Life is what you make it, right? Yes. But that doesn’t mean that I have to eke out some good memories from a hellish environment, especially if there is any way I can modify or improve my situation. You wouldn’t put human babies in wards with food and basic necessities and no nurturing, or put a tiger in a cage at the zoo, or approach a starving man, and say “Just be happy; life is what you make it.” Yes, humans and tigers have endured these deprivations—often these hardships even have a maturing effect. Still, we don’t get to impose unnecessary suffering on any living thing and certainly not on ourselves. Life comes up with enough of that on its own.
This is my response to “Life is what you make it:” I choose to make my life a life of purpose, meaning, and passion and memories of significant events and struggles overcome. And when I encounter situations in my environment that are standing in my way, I will exert extraordinary powers to mold my environment so I have the best shot at my life of purpose, like when animals literally risk their lives to defend territory, for essential food, or to mate and produce offspring. So I am taking charge of my life (as I see it) by exerting my powers (in my case, by writing this book; in your case, by reading it and taking some action) to protect and improve it, just as if I were a squirrel protecting the boundaries of my territory.”
Of course, the wonderful twist is that in working toward this life of passion, you and I together (not separately) find our true desire, though not always in the way or at the time we would have picked! This book is for you, the individual reader, regardless of what culture you belong to or which corner of the globe you are in. It tells how to find the passion and purpose you crave. It is for businesses and corporations. Your business will thrive if you adopt this approach because you are patterning your business to model the way healthy humans live. This book is also ideal for forming or transforming tribes, villages, and towns into centers of human productivity and purpose, especially in the aftermath of eons of oppressive and passion-killing government. Towns (and their nations) that adopts this approach will see both prosperity and quality of life increase. Finally, this book is for nations and cultures, IF their goal is to see life, hope, and purpose return to the eyes of their people.
So what’s in it for you? What is here that will change your life? Read on, and you will be saying, “Yes, this is how I want to live” and then commit, connect, and respond with your input and energy. This book cannot be read passively; either you hop on for the ride of your life, or you don’t. The world loves those who are seeking a life of passion and purpose (all the world loves a lover), and the rest of the world wants us to succeed and will go out of their way to help us.
