The purpose of this blog is to light bridges of harmony between self and nature through the sharing of knowledge and showing by example, which others may turn into practical wisdom through the “doing” to enhance their own lives. I call this process the Liberated Way.
I consider that everything in nature has a pattern which gives rise to how it appears and behaves. Through observation an individual can discover universal principles and processes within nature, which the Greek philosopher Heraclitus calls the “common”. Heraclitus considers that humanity should “follow the common” and thus be in harmony with nature.
It is my belief that if self can follow the principles and processes of nature they can achieve a harmony between self, humanity and nature. Harmony is my goal, the bridges I light is what I believe to be the principles and processes of nature which the self can align with in order to achieve prosperity, which I define as happiness, health and abundance. I consider that when self is out of alignment with the “common” of nature then the troubles that are experienced by humanity today is the result.
Nature is a system that is expressing a creative process, humanity are creative beings with the potential to express a creative process. Beyond the simple three natural needs to live, grow and reproduce, humanity is motivated to be creative, to write poems, to build rockets, to discover sub-atomic particles. Humanity by embracing rather than fighting the “common” of nature, by being in alignment, by being creative will lead happy, healthy and abundant lives.
Four key values are at the heart of Liberated Way: creativity; wisdom; liberty; sustainability. These values will be observed as regular themes running through the Liberated Way in my articles, all with the main goal of promoting beliefs and behaviours that create harmony between self, humanity and nature. Since self is a part of nature, then the patterns of nature exists in the self, by aligning with these patterns through belief and behaviour harmony is produced in the self, and with nature.
