Happy New Year! New Year, New Life, New Hope
“If there is life, there is hope.” That’s a quote from the great physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking in the movie, “The Theory of Everything.” Most of us would be hard-pressed to disagree. It’s why we try and try over again. It’s why we develop ambition and decide to do “this” or “that.”
Humans. A curious species that live on Earth, a planet in a solar system in what we call the Milky Way Galaxy, somewhere in our ever-expanding universe. This species of earthling is known for violent acts of destruction and violence against each other: Albert Einstein once said, “Humans may have built an atom bomb, but you’d never find a mouse building a mousetrap.” Humans; the only group of earthlings known for excessive violence against themselves while committing absolute atrocities against other earthlings and destruction of their only planet. Yet, as long as we live, there remains hope to do better, purely because we aren’t dead.
In some ways, yes, we absolutely deserve everything that’s probably headed our way. In other ways, we still have time to be pro-active and change according to the information we find. It’s inevitable that change will always happen, and most likely be painful if we aren’t ready for it. It’s likely that some won’t be able to make the change, whether because of ego, pride, lust, greed, sloth, anger, envy or some other debased form of human interaction and intelligence.
Yet, there remains this incessant hope. As more and more information becomes available in this Age of Information, more individuals are looking for ways to overcome what seems to be a stagnant and outdated system. Most of us sit on the proverbial sidelines, watching other people get in the game, and we never understand what it takes to be able to participate and contribute. If you’ve played sports, you understand how life is a lot like practice and games. It takes ambition; a strong desire to do or achieve something, typically requiring determination and hard work, to sign up to play sports, or do something different from the status quo. In life, we have no choice as we are brought into this world by eager parents who just want a family. We are taught only what our parents and teachers know, suited up for the game, and told not to ask questions and just do as we are told, never understanding what the people on the field did to get there. We end up just following the same process most other people on the team follow, and the end result is standing on the sidelines watching as the game wanes on never knowing we had a role to play in how the game plays out.
One either contributes to the game, and finds a way onto the stat sheet as someone who helped make a difference at some point in their life, or the game ends and one wonders if there was anything that you could have done to make a difference. That’s regret.No one wants to die having regretted NOT doing what they felt they should have done.
To be a great player in the game of life, one has to be fully confident in their own abilities, and spend significant time in practice honing those skills that will provide them with opportunities to get in the game and contribute. What does that take? Sacrifice, knowing that one left it all out on the field of battle, and had nothing left to give. It takes dedication to their craft, and more importantly, dedication to discovering what their craft is.
A belief system must require an individual to act the way they speak. This eliminates all hypocrisy. By not wasting any words one can empower themselves with the power of words. As one speaks, so shall it be. Not only does that factor into how we should speak, but how we think as well because those thoughts become reality. We also become what we eat, and this is such an important factor, especially in the Western traditions of eating. By eliminating hypocrisy, we can build trust between all species of earthlings. This belief system requires you treat yourself with the respect you deserve as a human being born to this planet with the mandate of being a steward over our home, this planet we call Earth.
I don’t have all the answers and will never pretend to. However, as a collective group seeking change in ourselves and for the betterment of this planet, my goal is to write and gather information from everyone I encounter, as we attempt to discover who we are and why we are here. That is why I am releasing these documents that I have been preparing for the past year.
I call these documents the Holy Grail of Life. Whether I come up with a new name…well that depends on just how many people find the information useful to their lives. I want the things we talk about here to be of value to you and your life. Again, I don’t know much, but what I do know I have tried to learn from some of the world’s brightest minds, people we learn about in school but never really take time to study. These people are anywhere from Egyptian scholars to Biblical Heroes, Lao Tzu, Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, Nikola Tesla, and Bruce Lee to name a few.
Come with me this year as I attempt to deliver my findings of the secrets of harnessing our inner power along with the power and energy available around us! Each week on Friday I will be posting lessons that I have learned from life, nutrition, workouts, tips on surviving the painful periods, and my own personal experiences that have led me to various winning results and undesirable outcomes.
My name is James Taylor, and I am here to write my findings about truth and life. I hope you’ll join me this year I as take the next 52 weeks unraveling the natural in nature, doing my part to hopefully help and restore your spirit, soul, and body so that you can do the same as well.
