So this is supposed to be about my Charitable or Activist lifestyle? Hmm. Well I can say that I was a missionary for 2 years with an organization that I shall not name so as not to give them free press. I learned in my time there that there are a lot of people in the world who simply want to feel like they are doing something good for others, and will let that feeling trump the facts about whether or not they are in fact doing any actual good for people. For this reason, I have respolved to never assist another religious organization again. I preached and taught the bible, and then patted myself on the back as I left the country. Sure some people said I helped them through hard times, or gave them hope, and I even built a few things here and there, but all in all I felt that those types of practices should be abandoned and relinquished to allow more real tangible help to take place in the world by meeting people's needs. Its alright to have religion motivate you, but it is not okay to only help those who listen to your motivation and agree with you. Any God worth having would want us to help a person in need, regardless of beliefs, and to keep our faith humbly to ourselves until it is asked for.
So I am still on my search for the ways I feel best assist humanity. I am also in search of motivation to get out and actually assist humanity. I have seen things that are cool like giving Solar or Wind Power to small third world communities, or even Charity Water which I think is a great way to help. But I have not found the one thing that I would devote my energy to, but I am resolved to keep looking. Whatever i is will have to be very specific and would be something I can agree with fully. But when I do find it, believe me, I will throw myself in wholeheartedly to change the world in whatever ways for good that it can be.
