Feed The Fire is a mindset and paradigm that I have lived by since 2009. I explored the origins of this paradigm in a previous blog post, you can read it by clicking here.
Feed The Fire is a vision, a challenge, and a practice.
- Vision: To create, with the inclusion and aid of all, a community that is self-sustaining. To foster people and families toward accountability and integrity. To always encourage the betterment of individuals, keeping in mind that we are only as strong as we challenge ourselves up to be.
- Challenge: What have you done to feed your fire today? How have you positively impacted another human being’s life? How have you improved the relationships in your life? These challenges create practices that maintain the paradigm.
- Practice: Writing – goals, dreams, beliefs, thoughts – making the abstract real. Drop the “F” bomb – Forgiveness – get rid of pride and have a right emotional response. Approaching each day as an opportunity to improve.
Feed The Fire first began in my mind when I was searching for grounding and stability. Looking inward and focusing on my heritage, a symbol that represented what I was searching for became clear. That symbol is a fire, which for my ancestors was a source of warmth, food, and sight. Once I took on this paradigm it has stuck with me, just like that smokey smell of an open flame fire.
Feed The Fire is not just an abstract concept, it is has real implications. I’m currently in the process of exploring several real life applications of this concept, I look forward to seeing what Feed The Fire can do for others.
I’ve chosen to write about this concept here because I realize that nothing life changing and grand can be accomplished solely by one man or one woman. It takes a group effort to significantly impact our environment. I encourage any person to join me in exploring this concept and spreading this paradigm. Feel free to comment below.
