The last two years have been a challenge, to say the least. I lost my fiance’ and the relationship with her three boys due to her infidelity, my father to cancer, and finally, my mother to cancer. It has been hard to digest all of these significant life events, but I can tell you that I have learned quickly how precious life is and that life is about experiences and connections, not possessions.
As a society, we have been guided toward a materialistic epidemic perpetuated by global bankers, religious leaders, corporations, and governments to control our very existence. They increasingly set policies to centralize money and power to maintain control through a hierarchy that directs money to the top 2%. We are all just pons in their game, and very few of us ever pull back the curtains to see Oz for what it is.
I need to find out what makes me tick in a world gone mad. I need to see the essence of what we are here on this planet for. We all go day to day working 9-5 jobs to pay bills and buy things to impress people we don’t care about. I have worked so many jobs just for a paycheck to acquire something to fill voids that only got deeper and, even worse, pay taxes to an authoritarian government that uses that money for things I see as unjust and ignorant. I think we are allowing ourselves to be pulled further away from what our universal destiny is; communion with God, one another, and mother nature. We can not let the latest technological gadget produced by a company connected with the government to strip you of your imagination, health, or even soul. Hence the burning fire in my spirit to travel to Peru, test myself and find my purpose. Step away from the 9-5 and experience life in a new light, even for a while. That is a pretty big expectation. Well, let’s see what happens.
