Driven By Joy (Part I)

We are at a place in human existence where a race between ignorance being blissful and enlightenment being essential is in full swing. To use the whole human system is an absolute must at this point in our evolution. The common belief of yesterday and today is that we have a body and when the body stops life is over. Because of this belief system life is considered a fragile event and all the sensations of life are extremely insecure. With the sensations of life being fragile, everything about it is considered critical and unsafe. This is the driving motivation of today’s human world. In this environment, job, family, religious belief and culture are all critical. Where is the motivation for joy when it is all viewed from such a critically fragile posture? There is very little enjoyment in the world today but there is a whole lot of fear. If you teach otherwise, you’re considered foolish, naïve and irresponsible.

To transcend from this fragile belief system, where everything is a battle and every discussion an argument, to a robust system where life is eternal and joy is essential – this is the required phenomenon. Inside the DNA of every animal there is a dominant nature developed for the purpose of survival. This survival trigger is set in place to insure that such “foolish” and “irresponsible” transitions – and the conversations that inspire them do not take place. But, there is also a driving force inside our human nature which suspects there is something much greater. This has set up the battle inside every human heart. This is the world today, in transition from survival driven by fear to purpose driven by joy.
