Becoming the Freedom Preacher

I have been “on the road” to becoming the Freedom Preacher for as far back as I can remember. This is a brief recap of my journey.

I am convinced that people can get along, that most of the problems they encounter can be solved or at least improved, and that the benefits can be far greater than is commonly realized.

Widespread awareness of this simple yet powerful fact could bring us the long desired but ever elusive “World Peace.” Sadly, as we all seem to realize, this is extremely unlikely.

Yes, we all share the larger world with all its troubles. But we also live in our own individual version of the world as well. It’s this world – your world – that I believe can be improved.

It wound up being an Englishman from the early part of the twentieth century who helped me begin to understand where conflict, or at least much of it, comes from.

Starting to look for answers
I realized early in life that much of the trouble we have getting along with each other is artificial or just unnecessary. Many of those in my typically contentious family were so busy bickering with each other that they failed to realize that they were actually after the same things — a decent life, the chance to raise their kids, hopefully a chance for some fun from time to time. But the endless squabbling and fighting used up a lot of the time and energy that could have gone toward making these things happen.

Had to work on conflicts. But which ones?
My experience with psychotherapy was so positive that I seriously considered a career as a psychologist. My interest in technology, however, won out and led me to a long run as an independent IT consultant, specializing in sales and accounting systems for small businesses.
