We are in The Innovation Age as clearly seen in technology. As humans, we must change, too, in all our entities, groups, governments, and religions. At the same time we must seek the wisdom-associated values and go about ridding ourselves of the negative values (See Copthorne MacDonald’s essay, “The Centrality of Wisdom,” in How to Achieve a Heaven on Earth.
The reality is that life itself is a process of change with many “bumps” in the road. I had so many severe bumps from 1963 onward. But, despite the pain along the way, there’s no question that I am much wiser than if my life had been success after success. That certainly doesn’t mean that I want to go down in defeat. Quite the opposite, I have important words to impart. I deeply want to be a recognized and serious pathfinder toward Heaven on Earth.
A world full of robust, stable, prosperous democracies will be a peaceful world, and I fully intend to do what I can to promote that result. A free, prosperous world will go about solving so many goals: ecological, harmony, health, spiritual harmony, racial harmony, and moral purpose and meaning. It’s not a matter of possibility. It’s definitely a matter of will—individually, and nation by nation.
Dedication of everyone from spiritual leaders to public servants to everyone else is essential to this awesome and wonderful undertaking of the ages, the dream of a heaven on earth, which I definitely believe was predestined by Almighty God from our creation.
Non-violence is part of the puzzle, even the abolishment of capital punishment. Restorative justice, particularly for non-violent criminals, is so much better than revenge. Non-violence is also crucial in the replacement of authoritative governments with democracies. Revenge shouldn’t be foremost. Freedom and democracy are too necessary that backward looking shouldn’t overshadow the opportunity of liberty and freedom.
When I write about prosperity, I am not glorifying materialism or consumerism. It is just that financial literacy should be taught at all levels of education and serve to stabilize economies worldwide. That, in turn, helps employment or self-employment or business formation or business growth, a very healthy situation, especially if we are altruistic.
