What It's All About
Empowerment Of People
People like you and me
and everyone you know
and everyone you don't know yet, too.
We are empowered by knowledge ...
1. knowledge of the world around us, and events that shape our lives.
2. knowledge of ourselves and development of our capacity to achieve.
3. knowledge and experience of success in pursuing happiness.
4. actualization of our full potentials
It all began before anything mattered.
It didn't matter if the universe was created or if everything evolved from nothing. Back then nobody cared.
People had a pretty full schedule just keeping themselves and their families alive and warm. Curious people asked "HOW" to make life more bearable. They didn't ask why they were alive?
Over the millenia, people learned not only how to live on this planet. They learned how to live well. They learned how to use the elements to their advantage. They learned how to transform resources into clothing and shelter and tools and a whole lot of other things. And they passed knowledge from generation to generation. And knowledge banks grew rapidly as each generation added new knowledge to them.
As people used their knowledge to make life easier for themselves, they had more spare time to contemplate the wonders of the world. People had the wherewithall to wonder about their place in the world. They had the curiousity to wonder about meaning in their lives. People explored where they came from, where they are going, and how to get there most successfully. With knowledge, people could shape their lives.
Thousands of years of experience and observation later, here's the conclusion. . .
We create our own lives.
