How do you build a safe and healthy life that both helps other people and our planet and is full of friends, fun, meaning and purpose? On this page, I continue the conversation about the Good Life that began with my No Impact Man blog, book and film. Are you, like so many of us, also looking for the kind of life that makes you happier and helps the world? Because I really hope you’ll join the conversation!
Here is the unifying theory for living a good life and helping the world that summarizes everything I wrote in my book How To Be Alive: Give more energy to what is True for you; give less energy to what is not True for you.
What if, in conflict, we thought as no person is our enemy? What if it is misunderstanding, extreme desire and anger that cause poor behavior? Then, are not misunderstanding, extreme desire and anger are our only enemies? So if we want to stop conflict, shouldnt we reduce misunderstanding, extreme desire and anger?
We get scared that being ourselves–following our Truth–won’t get us where we want to be. But if being ourselves gets us there, then maybe that is where we *truly* want to be. So what path should you follow? What life obligations should you choose?
