I think it’s time we start looking at our value, and our legacy. What are we passing to the next generation? What are leaving to those we knew, and those we didn’t?
While our society seems progressive and rich, the poorness of our culture is astoundingly visible and ignored. Our human purpose is to grow and gain knowledge before passing it to the next generation, who passes it to the next and so on. That’s what our genes do, and that’s what we do as well, emotionally.
As cultures moved to new climates, the climates created change in our bodies that had to adapt to the new climate. For some, skin got lighter, hair got longer and muscles adapted to the work that had to be done. As these climates stabilized, those changes were passed down through ancestory and we are what we are now because of it. Our bodies have a purpose of survival and passing on knowledge. What knowledge are we passing on today?
Children now believe that money is the #1 source of both happiness and power. That was passed to them in just the last half century, through a mix of two generations. Think about how long genes have been thriving and continuing to pass surviving knowledge on. Deep down, we know love, compassion, community, as well as famine, hate, greed and violence. Which do you think has been more predominant in the last century?
You will die, it is a clear, proven fact. How will you be seen when you pass? Will people try to be like you in a good way, or a bad one? Will people talk about you in reverence, or in plight?
You will not take money with you , and who knows the value of that money once you pass, but you will leave a mark. Will that mark be a stain that you can’t get out with the strongest cleaners, or will it be a star that is looked at as an example of humanity?
Time is the only thing of real value, and how you spend it is remembered above all things. How will you spend the rest of your life? What will your legacy and value be to the next generation?
Value your wellth and use your time wisely. It’s the only thing you have that is of value to everyone, including the future.
