It’s without a shadow of doubt in the power of the word of God as written in the Holy Bible that I’m beginning this journey of blogging by jotting down the life journey experiences, wisdom and inspirations after coming to that point in life where you have pursued all the desires and wants of life and come to a miserable, empty dead end. A lot of us come to this point in life so many times and depending on the questions we ask, end up either going back to the same route of vicious cycle hoping to end up in a different destination, others decide to take a short cut only to end up hitting the rock bottom and others realizing their helplessness cry out for help. These three choices determine the destiny of a person in finding and living their purpose to experience the highest form of existence that man was created for.
Believe you me, I have been on this journey for 35 years now. Growing up in Isiolo Kenya, a tough, cosmopolitan town classified as a hardship area surrounded by military camps in the middle of the Kenyan map. I couldn’t have asked for more for all the roots and guts i had to grow through the grilling semi-arid environment i grew in that threatened to ‘sift me and throw me away like chaff’. I can’t explain how i managed to survive out of that successfully but a vital lesson i took out of that is as we used to say those days playing basketball ‘the hard way, the only way’. I hope i will come back to the juicy specific details and stories as we blog on.
As I sit in my apartment on a cold winter in a far away country up north of my homeland and reflect and prepare to start another sprint in my life, I can’t help but learn the precious lessons lest i forget and end up wasting time, making mistakes and going back the same routes as i have done over and over. And that’s the beauty of life that as long as we stop! ask the right questions and seek for help for it is written ‘ask and it shall be answered, seek and you shall find’. It’s never that difficult but the moment we realize our powerlessness to do what we should do and not to do what we shouldn’t is the moment we start to ask the right questions because it’s at this point we face the danger of going back the same route probably with a different ride thus lying to ourselves things have changed for the better.
It’s a lesson that has finally sunk in my brain that even after seeking for help and getting that breakthrough in life to realize that ‘I can do all things…through Christ who strengthens me’ the biggest sin is forgetting or having the wrong idea of who or where my help comes from. It’s puzzling how many times we’ve heard the preaching and teachings of the disciplines of success in life. It’s obvious i have no answers to others issues but i have a story for those who know me personally and others who relate, a rather familiar story maybe, a story I’ve told many times in testimonies and in friends chats. I was reading a book titled ‘A whole new mind’ by Daniel H Pink where he talks about the new six senses that will succeed and usher us from the Information technology age to the New Conceptual age and one of them is ‘Story’-This will be the ability of the next generation products or services to tell a story that is real and captivating which is already being done in many marketing campaigns. With this mind captivating, artificial intelligence and virtual reality, next generation conceptual age techniques in full effect, it’s definite as it is in the human nature to reach a dead end in satisfying human needs as we are all created with a need to connect to our source of spiritual power just like any object to hold in place or to know our creator who created us in His image and thus in pursuing to knowing Him daily we experience true satisfaction and the fulfillment of His image by having a divine nature.
As humanity continues to advance in technology, we observe that there are no new human needs arising except that more problems are being created to create a need for new solutions to keeps businesses alive and money circulating, this vicious cycle in our environment is the same cycle we go through in our individual lives. Only those who will have known and experienced the divine nature will have a cutting edge in the future because they will have power over their lives and the environmental system around them which transcend conceptual age technologies and techniques, it will be powerfully visible and attractive that it will draw all men unto their source of divine nature. As the word conceptual means ‘perceived’, that means the conceptual age will be selling perceived teachings, perceived divine nature and other perceived need concepts that the material world and products have not been able to provide or satisfy.
These are just my thoughts and insights, my questions are will i be ahead of business in selling the new conceptual age products and services? will i continue to be an emotionally manipulated consumer by conceptual products and services out there who don’t know themselves? or will i have transcended this human wants and needs nature to a divine nature and be able to be a free, living source of conceptual human needs and wants.?
Humanity is close to the peak of civilization as a result of Information Technology age, we have been able to develop to a point that in the near future we’ll be able to satisfy the basic human needs and wants as it’s one of the UN goals to eradicate poverty world wide. Already in an advanced society like Finland where I’m living it’s already been achieved, but with one of the highest rates of suicides in the world, it’s evident then that food, clothing and shelter is not sufficient measure of human needs and wants, and this is the origin of the conceptual age to create and give meaning to the material world we’ll have be able to achieve for all in order to fill in the empty void that will still exist despite the eradication of poverty.
Therefor it’s either you will be living and experiencing it or hearing and telling stories. The greatest story of creation and salvation has already been told, to live it is a choice we’ll have to make and ask daily for help as it’s a gift. This is my current world view and philosophy, I continue to build on it daily and I’m sure the limits are beyond my imaginations.
